Wow, such a powerful song. No twerking needed. No sagging pants. No bla- uh scary people. Real powerful message for real American men around the world. We are not collectively responsible for the way the world is. Thats just how it is. I love my wife and her boyfriend.

​@taigawoods yeah the second part where he starts talking about what men should do about it is dumb af. Like the complaints he showed, and how society largely still doesn't really care about men's issues are true. However, his approach is WHY society does not care. "Don't show emotion to your sons or anyone" is why no one can fully understand your issues. Clinging onto an impossible role is, frankly bad for you.

As a young male I agree with Anthony. We live in a world where men like Andrew Tate who support and share ideas like that it's hard seeing other men in my age following these ideologies and opinions. It's really toxic, dump and it just doesn't have to be that thing. Men don't have to weight the world on their shoulders and they don't have to feel obligated that they have to solve and control everything. If you are a man and you have strong emotions just cry, it's cathartic and when tou bottle your emotions inside you and keep them in your head only you're slowly destroying yourself
Hedgelocked 5 mesi fa
very based take
Evan Schaefering
You were fortunate that you weren't raised surrounded by toxic masculinity. For a ton of men they are so stuck in that toxicity that telling them to "just cry" is like telling a depressed person to "just be happy". They shouldn't have to feel this way but they have been born and raised being told that they should and it's a nasty thing to escape.

Fantano is doing much more at this point than just reviewing music. Talking about the toxicity of the constructed roles we embrace unconsciously in society and the expectations we think others have of us is very important imo and not easy to notice. Making music about these roles and promoting them is recycling this oppression all over
Tay Tay
Tay Tay 5 mesi fa
The way Fantano approaches expressing feminist and otherwise progressive ideas is so accessible and hard to disagree with for people who are looking in from the outside. It's never preachy, it's light hearted and fun while still treating the subject with the seriousness and respect it needs. We need more people like Melon on the online left, we as a community can often come off as offputting and gatekeepey, I hate seeing so many potential comrades pushed away.

I want to talk about something today. I just got back from listening to how to disappear completely by Radiohead, one of the greatest songs of all time (in my opinion). I was crying while listening to it, I was grieving some stuff I don’t really want to mention. How to Disappear Completely is one of the most emotionally impactful songs ever and it really is presented amazingly over time and is one of the songs that presents the most in the least amount of lyrics, it provides a hauntingly beautiful melody filled with violins. It has genuinely been so impactful to me. Now, I’m going to present a song EVEN BETTER, How to Disappear Completely does NOT compare AT ALL to this song, I present… Dax’s to be a man, I MEAN THE LYRICS ARE AMAZING I OOVED THE PART WHERE HE SAID: I watched ma granpa say penis… I MEAN WOW

How is telling men their problems don't matter and aren't real a "positive force"?
Youssef 5 mesi fa
@volumizer That's not what he's saying at all. He's saying (and specifically said at 11:37) that the feelings are valid, but accepting that reality as fact and wallowing in it instead of breaking this generational curse of isolated and repressed masculinity is bad. Accept the reality: many men have unfair expectations thrust upon them by other people. Create change: don't define your life as this and think it makes you a man. Do you want your kids to grow up feeling like shit, being emotionally shut off and viewing themselves as a tool to bring in money for people because that's the only way they think they will find a place in society? If your answer is yes, you're part of the problem. If your answer is no, maybe you should take a hard look at what you can do to better your own life and perspective so they don't continue to hurt men in the future. Your problems matter, men's problems matter, but continuing this cycle only perpetuates yours and so many other men's problems. We need to learn that emotions are okay, and if someone thinks they're not being "you're a man", tell them to get fucked and surround yourself with people who don't make your life worse.
Moose is in the House
I grew in a half Jamaican household that was very traditional when it comes to men. "Men are strong, emotionless providers that can't have feelings and feelings are for weak and gay men", all that awful crap. I learned in spite of that, its perfectly normal to have a healthy relationship with your emotions. Its okay to cry, laugh, say your depressed and the rest. More people relate to you when you're genuine about your emotions and not this weird monolithic toxic dude who is too badass for feelings. In fact, most dudes I know who bottle up their feelings later on down the line have some sort of massive emotional explosion that does way more damage to everyone around them than being open about it would have ever done (getting into fights, becoming overly aggressive or worse). But alas, a lot of people missed the point of The Sopranos.

I think the problem is generalization. For most simpletons like Dax, it is easier to make assumptions about people based on societal norms or stereotypes, rather than taking the time to see them as complex individuals with their own stories. For example, it is not accurate to assume that all men share the same tendencies when it comes to expressing emotions in front of others. It is tragic that in 2023, we still can't move beyond simplistic archetypes and see people as the unique individuals they are.

It seems there's a lot of rap artists out there making songs with these cheesy, unnecessarily-dramatic, preach-y lyrics/themes. It's tragic, hip-hop and rap isn't about being a "peace and love, we are one" virtue-signaler. These guys have potential but instead they burn it away by being disingenuous and, at times, borderline fraudulent. Tom MacDonald is a disgrace, there's my two cents.

I am failing so hard to see where you guys get the idea he is saying men *SHOULD* feel this way. It seems like he's saying men *DO* feel this way, to me. Maybe he's not offering any solutions, but I don't think there's a solution that can be offered in a song or in a video analyzing the song for that matter. Leaving aside the "don't cry in front of your kids" part. That's stupid.

I do relate to some of the things he’s saying but not because society molded me like that or because of my peers, for me it comes from how I was raised. My dad was a very traditional and conservative person, he never let me cry or share my feelings or anything like that, he said it was feminine. Growing up that had a real impact on my social life and how I interacted and treated other men and women. It wasn’t until my early twenties did I really realize how toxic that was and try to break out of that shell, but still I find myself not talking about my feelings or feeling guilty when I cry and shit like that. After so many years it just becomes embedded in your brain that that’s how you should and shouldn’t act as a man. It honestly really is something that bothers me almost every day, going through high school I had undiagnosed depression and anxiety and it wasn’t until just a couple months ago did I get the courage to go to the doctor and actually talk about these things. Even still I have a hard time telling people I’m on anxiety meds just due to the fact that I don’t want them to judge me even tho I know now that they won’t

“And give her your last name” i love how this still means something. Something you had no control over, but it’s ‘muh heritage.’ It’s also used as if it’s some weird ass gift to the woman he marries, nothing of substance, just another link in the family chain.

Living around people who have believed this kind of "be a man" lifestyle and forced it on me, I can't completely disagree with Dax because there are still so many people who believe that Men are only worth what they make in a paycheck or what their skillset is and that emotions are weak, but he also completely forgets that we as a society CAN and HAVE been breaking away from that idea because it's ultimately built on nothing and means nothing. I hate that I had to go through that and I hate that so many other men still live by this code and believe this crap because its all so stupid

Dude if you don’t show emotion in front of your children, or if you make emotions seem like a bad thing, that’s how they’ll view emotions for the rest of their life. Like they shouldn’t exist, and that can cause a whole host of issues. Guys who identify with shit like this are actually creating generational curses but according to this dude it’s the opposite

If you dont know what its like to be a father or the head of a household 24/7, dont speak on it. Music is supposed to generate feeling into sounds and lyrics. There wasnt anyway Dax could make this song any better because it came from his heart. This was himself pouring his emotions into the mic and put it out for all the men that deserves to not feel alone. Everyone's a critic these days i swear smh.

this video is so incomprehensibly based. men love to complain about how society wants them to be cold emotionless breadwinners but never stop to think hey am i perpetuating the very narrative thats keeping me down? is the way im talking about this making it easier for other men to break the stigma? there's always acknowledgement that there's a problem with how men are treated but never any self awareness that they might be part of the problem

Some people need to figure out that you don't have to undermine someone else's suffering in order to feel your own.

Always remember the key elements of being a manly ass man are to always refuse help to show how big and strong you are, and to discredit any contributions or significance of the people around you to show how not big and strong they are. Personality is a sign of weakness and should also be ignored. Be big, be strong, be money, thats all you need.

Idk which man needs to hear this (Dax) but it’s okay to cry and need comfort from other people. Asking for help is manly and cool
Isaiah Senku Gaming
i get what Anthony's tryna say but it doesn't really seem like he's even trying to understand where Dax is coming from. Just because people aren't vocal about "be a man" and "don't show emotions" doesn't mean that the sentiment isn't there. a lot of men, whether they admit it or not, understand that we are the backbone of our families, whether or not we're the breadwinners. it's not about women vs men, it's just the truth cuz gender roles are a thing for a reason.

Anthony Baldtano, I gave ChatGPT the audio transcript of this video. Here's what it thinks of your review: The reviewer notes that Dax is known for his bangers and meaningful cuts, but this new track is a bit of a departure as it is more of a country ballad. The song is entitled "To Be a Man" and offers a viewpoint on what it's like to be a man. The reviewer criticizes the song for being weird, demented, twisted, and presenting an unhealthy viewpoint of manhood. The lyrics contain themes of loneliness and isolation, and the reviewer questions why manhood is associated with these negative connotations. The reviewer also criticizes the lyrics for perpetuating the stereotype that men are only providers and not seeing themselves as anything else other than someone who provides something. The reviewer encourages men to view themselves as more than just providers and to have other qualities that make them likable and significant.

idk I get what fantano's saying, but he's also ignoring the reality that subtle societal expectations and pressures do exist for both genders. Like just bc you feel comfortable crying on camera (amazing for you!), there are plenty of dudes who would be belittled (behind their back or to their face) for expressing insecurities/emotions and dismissed as 'you're being a little b**ch'. Men's mental health is definitely an overlooked issue.

So, I’m a trans man, and I was closeted until I was 25. You know what stage of my life my emotions and complaints weren’t taken seriously? When people perceived me as a woman! My thoughts, opinions, and emotions are taken so much more seriously now that I pass as a man. When I was seen as a woman, every word that came out of my mouth was viewed as hysteric. I literally don’t know where this stereotype of “men can’t show emotions” comes from, because people actually want to help me when I express anger and sadness now. Having “lived as both”, in this specific instance (as well as most other facets of life), I really do believe men have it easier because of my own experience. If you think you can’t cry or express emotions as a man, that’s on you.
Evan Schaefering
To be fair, you weren't subject to the same aspects of toxic masculinity that a lot of men were when growing up. People might take emotional issues and complaints in general from men more seriously than they do women but the idea of actually asking for help has such negative connotations for a lot of men because of the way they were raised. This leads to the nasty spiral that starts with songs like this, and generally ends up in differing levels of misogyny.
Cat1803 5 mesi fa
@Evan Schaefering I also dealt with the expectation to not ask for help for fear of being seen as crazy and hysterical, as well as other personal family reasons. This is one of those cases where the expectations for men and women are similar, even if they come from seemingly different places. Like I said though my opinion is based on my own experience.

That's most likely because you're around people who are willing to reinforce the idea that you are a man in the first place. Obviously they're going to validate whatever your feelings are.

After a minute, the lyrics seem less like a “description of society at large” and more like a strange incantation to create a world solely based around oppressing Dax, and Dax is the one wishing it upon himself. So strange.

I love how in the comments section of that music video, someone commented about how it also applies to women and Dax replied saying “Facts”. So if these problems apply to both men and women, why are you making a song about being a man like it only applies to them 😂 Dax is goofy

Dax is a conscious rapper that can never rap to relate to the masses. every song sounds like a cloutchase of random groups of people. never metaphorically layering his lines to apply to everyone like a Mos def (conscious rapper) or a earl sweatshirt, mf doom, andre 3000, even vince staples. its always a song speaking for a surface level opinion of a group of people.
