Abstract

This paper is a response to Rachel O’Neill’s article “Whither Critical Masculinity Studies? Notes on Inclusive Masculinity Theory, Postfeminism, and Sexual Politics.” It is suggested that her interpretation of the inclusive masculinity theory devalues Anderson’s (2009) perspectives, which focus on democratization of gender relations. Scholars of masculinity work in different conceptual frameworks, contributing to diverse aspects of ideological, political, and social agendas. Thus, it is argued that Anderson’s research recognizes the cultural transformations related to social justice and gender equality and contributes significantly to the field of masculinity studies.
