Several studies around the world indicate that young men are more conservative than young women, and even more than their elders. The next Swiss equality barometer will go in the same direction; it will air on May 21. How to explain it? The politician Francis Dupuis-Deri, specialist in masculinities, discusses ideas in Point J.

“The generations are not homogeneous. At the time of the Vietnam War in the United States, young people were associated with the hippie movement, but there were also militarists,” the Canadian researcher first points out.

Men have said they are in crisis since ancient Rome

“Families and adults influence young people, who are also caught up by social media and algorithms. Girls become feminists younger and boys anti-feminist younger.” And to cite the influencers, who have moved from a world of divorced fathers to young masculinists like Andrew Tate, who obviously speak more to adolescents.

For some observers, the phenomenon would also be due to a return of the pendulum, the famous “backlash”, post #MeToo. But Francis Dupuis-Deri would like to point out that “men have been saying they are in crisis since ancient Rome, because of women who do not respect the place where we would like them to confine themselves”.

Does the educational divide play a role? How are ideologies and values ​​anchored in girls and boys? How can we bridge this growing gap?
