Elliot Rodger and the price of toxic masculinity | The Daily Dot
“And critically—it teaches that men cannot show weakness. To show weakness or emotion makes you less of a man. It makes you a pussy—not even a woman, just a part of a woman, something to be fucked by ‘real men’.”

The Last Jedi, toxic masculinity, and showing your place in all this
Very insightful reflection about the dynamics of toxic masculinity and white supremacy at the example of Kylo Ren. He’d rather be evil than simply join the revolution. He can’t join, he has to be the protagonist.

Other characters like Poe, Fin or Luke have similar arcs but with different outcomes.

Autopsy of a Failed Holacracy: Lessons in Justice, Equity, and Self-Management - Non Profit News | Nonprofit Quarterly
Very insightful analysis of the shortcomings of Holacracy:
– how it doesn’t account for power structures beyond formal organisational power
– how it dictates processes that might now fit in every environment,
– how it creates a formally equal and “colour blind” space, gaslighting those who struggle with the complex interpersonal power dynamics that go unaddressed
– etc.

Der profeministische Männerrundbrief
Archiv der von 1993-2002 erschienenen Zeitschrift.

«Mit dem Online-Stellen kann sich das damals erarbeitete Wissen wieder angeeignet werden. Wir verbinden damit die Hoffnung, dass einige der damaligen Diskussionsstränge wieder aufgegriffen werden, die mit dem Wegbrechen der linksradikalen/autonomen Männerbewegung zunehmend verloren gingen.»

Die Ordnung des Diskurses von Michel Foucault.
…ein Schlüsseltext der modernen Ideengeschichte. In einer subtilen Analyse der literarischen und wissenschaftlichen Institutionen und Mechanismen, die das Geschriebene und Gesprochene einschränken, kontrollieren und determinieren, entwickelt Foucault hier den theoretischen "Diskurs", der ihn nachmals berühmt gemacht und mit dem er die Grenzen zwischen Historiographie, Literaturwissenschaft, Philosophie und Rhetorik überschritten hat.

Die männliche Herrschaft von Pierre Bourdieu
Lektüre vom Einführungskurs in die Geschlechterforschung an der Uni Bern.

Männliche Herrschaft ist das Paradigma aller Herrschaft. Sie hat sich in der sozialen Welt niedergeschlagen und ist in den Einstellungen aller, dem Habitus, präsent: als ein universelles Prinzip des Sehens, ein System von Wahrnehmungs-, Denk- und Handlungskategorien. Dies erklärt, warum eine solche Macht akzeptiert wird, denn sie beruht nicht auf einer freiwilligen Entscheidung, sondern auf der unmittelbaren Unterwerfung der sozialisierten Frauen. Für Bourdieu bedarf es daher einer symbolischen Revolution, einer radikalen Umgestaltung jener gesellschaftlichen Verhältnisse, die die beherrschten Frauen dazu bringen, den Standpunkt der Herrschenden einzunehmen.

Ijeoma Oluo: 'I am drowning in whiteness' | KUOW News and Information
About being uncomfortable as a white person: “… the least you can do is be uncomfortable. Be uncomfortable a lot. And if you are comfortable, take that as a sign that you need to make things more uncomfortable.” Definitely makes me uncomfortable

My liberal white male rage: What should I do about it? -
Good mirror for my own thought patterns.
Reminds me of Bell Hooks, describing how the Patriarchy equals power with domination. Men are raised to dominate others. Those power fantasies are deeply implanted in patriarchal masculinity and even intoxicates genuine efforts to do the right thing.

Sapiens von Yuval Noah Harari. Bücher | Orell Füssli
(Recommended by Andrea Staudacher)
In Sapiens, Dr Yuval Noah Harari spans the whole of human history, from the very first humans to walk the earth to the radical - and sometimes devastating - breakthroughs of the Cognitive, Agricultural and Scientific Revolutions. Drawing on insights from biology, anthropology, palaeontology and economics, he explores how the currents of history have shaped our human societies, the animals and plants around us, and even our personalities. Have we become happier as history has unfolded? Can we ever free our behaviour from the heritage of our ancestors? And what, if anything, can we do to influence the course of the centuries to come?

Homo Deus von Yuval Noah Harari. Bücher | Orell Füssli
(Recommended by Andrea Staudacher)
Sapiens showed us where we came from. Homo Deus shows us where we're going.
War is obsolete. You are more likely to commit suicide than be killed in conflict.
Famine is disappearing. You are at more risk of obesity than starvation.
Death is just a technical problem. Equality is out - but immortality is in.
What does our future hold?
