11. ....

Meanwhile, acts of menís violence and violent aggression (in this case, usually against other men) are celebrated in sport and cinema, in literature and warfare. Not only is violence permitted, it is glamorized and rewarded. The very historic roots of patriarchal societies is the use of violence as a a key means of solving disputes and differences, whether among individuals, groups of men, or, later, between nations.

Men's violence is celebrated.

Why that's not obvious to all, and its ramifications, is a puzzlement.
