Traditionalism might suggest that the feminists lite of the HeForShe organization, promoted by the charming actress Emma Watson (and the United Nations!), needs to be countered with a SheForHe movement. But it is the Marxism, the cultural Marxism, behind feminism which needs to be countered.
The good salesmanship ( salespersonship?) of MS Watson illustrates the old idea that physical beauty has strong social currency, which remains true today. Beauty is not shallow, in spite of feminist attempts to say it is. Human nature remains much as it has always been since it was formed mainly in Hunter Gather times, and this includes being gender-defined, as well as being kin-centered, age-graded, heterosexual marriage-making, hierarchical, ethnocentric, even xenophobic, with group-selection as the primary unit of selection.
Why the feminist choose a form of female dictatorial dominance (have you been on a college campus lately?) to counter the male dictatorial dominance they claim to hate, is just another feminist inconsistency. The fact is, Western men have treated women better than any other men on earth. One would think any HeForShe movement would be better directed toward the Southern Hemisphere where such things as the surgical removal of the clitoris take place. But that would mean more meddling in the affairs of other nations. Freedom, Independence, and separation are far healthier than totalitarian Marxism, which still believes that human nature is endlessly malleable.
