After watching the video interview with Terry Crews and reading the essay written by Paul Theroux, I came to the conclusion that both of these men clearly think there is a problem with feminism and masculinity and the way we perceive and differentiate the two. I think that the two men are part of the same conversation although they try to make their points in different ways. While Terry Crews talks about his views using personal experiences and more of a welcoming tone as he urges more men to step up and talk about the problem, Paul Theroux uses a more harsh tone and in some ways is attacking men to make his points about why he hates being a man. I thought the interview with Terry Crews was a good way to try and get more men to speak about the subject and I was easily able to stay focused as well as entertained throughout the whole interview, admittedly I saw that the video was twenty minutes long and thought I would only watch half and call it quits. On the other hand, I did not agree with some of the things that Theroux stated in his essay, particularly about high school sports. Having said that, I think the interview with Crews was an all-around better way to talk about the problems with masculinity and feminism. Terry couldn’t have stated it better when he was saying that not much will change until we can start to see everyone as having equal value. Until then, we’re just cutting the leaves off the tree and waiting for them to grow back.
