For John, BLUF: Is The Donald the Clint Eastwood of the race? Nothing to see here; just move along.
No matter how you feel about Donald Trump, his candidacy has certainly brought gender issues to the forefront of the presidential race: witness his feud-turned-lovefest with Megyn Kelly.While we talk about the gender gap at the top of the pyramid, at the bottom this gap is ignored and the male side suffers. Maybe Mr Trump is their hope.
Gender was already a hot topic elsewhere throughout American culture. Narratives about America’s changing sexual landscape -- the so-called campus “rape culture,” the rise of women and the “end of men,” the tired conversation about the gender pay gap -- were common.
However, one issue in particular is now more visible due in part to something Trump represents to his supporters, something the culture has lost: the manly man.
