Since protests against the opening of marriage to homosexual couples, a movement of masculine pride is developing among Catholics. Being reactionary is not enough for them, they must also work on their manhood. ---- In recent years, movements for men in search of their masculinity of believers and their virile place in Catholicism have developed from the encounters around the Manif for All. These are camps, retreats, training courses between men. The basic idea is that "being a man, learning and building oneself" [1]. One would think of Beauvoir. ---- Moreover, the differences between boys and girls are built because "if we want to show that boys and girls have differences, we must have differentiated educational proposals ...". Rather, feminists use the idea that equal education is needed to avoid having differences, but the foundation is the same: education builds difference. To be honest, this movement places greater emphasis on a supposedly natural basis of personality than radical feminists. It is essentialistic.

The bases of this differentiated education are obviously inegalitarian: "The girl does not have the acquisition of the kind to do. While the boy has to do some initiatory work. " Women, who naturally wear headbands and are equally naturally inclined to make children and provide catechesis, do not need to find themselves between women to build their femininity. We know what can happen in groups of female spoken non-mixed words, the reactions have every interest to avoid that they exist.

Encounters between men are intended to "make them aware of the deep desires of their male hearts, specifically male, which are the adventure to live, the struggle to lead and the beauty to conquer".

Perenniality of the most worn-out shots

It is therefore a matter of ensuring the perpetuation of the most widespread clichés and of the most reactionary stereotypes: men and women are equal but completely different; Men have a strength and aggressiveness that turns them outward and conquest, they just have to channel it to greatness (implying that women are turned inward and possibly small); It is the fathers who make the girls and the boys since "it is the gaze of the father that strengthens the girl or the boy in his femininity or his masculinity". Initiators and participants regret the lack of initiatory rites in our societies.

The Church would have become a little soft and maternal, and above all, perhaps, "Islam is developing on this lack of virility."

We know that the excitement between supporters after matches tends to increase domestic violence. What about reactionaries who return home after spending a few days in non-mixed sex to boost manhood?
