    "When will men start a movement similar to feminism to liberate men from their traditional roles and responsibilities? Will it be possible?"

    While it might seem nice to obtain this equal freedom, supporting men’s liberation would mean the end of Western civilization which is based on men adhering to their roles. Western civilization has so far survived by allowing women’s liberation to free women from their traditional responsibilities to men and the society, but it would not stand for both being liberated.

    Often times in a discussion like this, several people inevitably ask -what do men need liberating from-? And also, many feminist types seems to believe (like most feminists) that men’s liberation would be allowing men to be free from only their superficial gender roles such as allowing men to cry, or wear pink, or show emotion and so on. But if we are to have a “men’s liberation” that is on par with “women’s liberation”, then it is much, much more than that.

    Men’s liberation would grant men the right to be just as selfish as women are under women’s liberation. This means no expectation by society for men to do any of the heavy lifting, or extra contributions for society. No expectation to marry women, have children, get a job, support women and children they may sire. There would also be no code where men should need to act civilized and "safe" for anyone else.These would all be options or “choices” at the discretion of men just as was the case for the oblations that women had prior to women’s liberation.

    Under women’s liberation, most women gave up their traditional responsibilities while hanging on to their traditional privileges. If most men were to do the same under a men’s liberation then our society as it is would not survive that transition.
