Heart of the Betrayer

Seattle Stranger In 1992 a book called “My Enemy My Love: Man-Hating and Ambivalence in Womens Lives”, Judith Levine wrote about cultural stereotypes of maleness. “Gender stereotypes enforce a cultural status quo,” she wrote, and it’s in the interest of maintaining this status quo that we imagine men posses in their DNA “the ability to drive a nail… or the willingness to kill.” Levine traced three overarching male types: There was the Infant, who will always be a child and needs a mothering wife to…
