Like all dominant groups, men are often stuck in a state of arrested development that can wrap them in an almost childlike obliviousness, grandiosity, and sense of entitlement in relation to women. This insulates them from the adult responsibility to know what’s going on and to move toward doing something about it, a responsibility that includes coming to terms with the reality of privilege and the oppression that supports it.
