The Minister of Equality has returned to bundle talking about feminism, new masculinities and “heteronorms.” Irene Montero has received a barrage of criticism on social networks for celebrating that “hegemonic masculinity is in crisis” and defending that “the advance of Feminist movement proposes other ways of being a man in the world, a man who cares, a man who cries, a man who does not follow the heteronorm, who has sexual relations with other men ». Internet users have not been slow to respond: “He’s like a chota!”
Irene Montero once again defends the existence of different “masculinities” and goes so far as to affirm that the Feminist movement he is the one who is proposing to men to be homosexual and not follow “heteronormas”, as if they did not exist before. This is how he has transferred it during his speech in the debate ‘Crisis of neoliberalism, extreme right and feminist horizon’ within the ‘Autumn University’ of Podemos, which is held in the Madrid town of Rivas.
«The struggles related to diversity and the rights of the LGTBI collective they are feminist struggles and are inevitably related. Other masculinities have more space to express themselves because that hegemonic masculinity is in crisis and because the advance of the feminist movement proposes other ways of being equally a man in the world: a man who cares, a man who cries, a man who does not follow the heteronorm, who has sexual relations with other men “, says the minister.
A few words that have had a strong reply on Twitter. And is that, most Internet users do not understand why in the XXI century the Minister of Equality continues to politically use the LGTBI collective as if they were victims of an oppressive system when in Spain their rights are guaranteed. In addition, they demand that he let each one be as he wants to be and does not impose his vision of men or women by pointing out those who do not think like them.
And if we respect the personality of each person and we stop Ireneces? More sensitive, more serious, quieter, more creative, more talkative, who likes flowers, animals … And that obsession with sexual orientation … not even with Franco.

But this girl, what men do you know? What world do you live in? Don’t you know that men take care of, cry and have relationships with whom they want without problem? How heavy it is.

This woman is psychologically very bad. A meaningless life based on contradictions and absurdities. He does not want anyone to tell a woman how to live but he wants to transform all men in his own way. Well, women, because she can handle them, of course.

Does she believe what she says? Or when he comes home does he lose heart from us? Who puts such absurd and ridiculous ideas in his head? Can we men talk about femininity or will we be branded as macho oppressors? What is this aunt about?

This girl found a vein in an issue that, to this day, taking away the four cavemen from each town, everyone does not care what others do with their body and their life. But there it is, r that r with the issue and I think it will take bad if they close the business.
