should men be included in the vulnerable group?

For years we consider vulnerable people as those who are disadvantaged in the society based on some factors or characteristics that they have and may need humanitarian assistance. Usually this group consists of children, elderly, people with disabilities, people living with HIV/AIDs, refugees, Youths, women, LGBTQIA+ community among another’s. When it comes to men that’s a different story as we pay little or no attention to their rights. Do you think its time their voice is heard?

    Men can also be negatively affected by the patriarchal society we live in, despite being seen as the main beneficiaries of it. We are pressured to conform to traditional gender roles pressure us to suppress our emotions, leading to mental health issues such as depression and anxiety. Stigma around showing vulnerability or weakness make us reluctant to seek help for mental health issues.

    Toxic masculinity leads to harmful behaviours such as aggression and violence, both towards women and ourselves. Creating safe spaces for men to discuss our feelings and experiences can help combat the negative effects of patriarchy on our lives and create a better and more equitable society.

  1. To include men in the vulnerable group, we have to undo the current way of life that is patriarchy. Anyone in dire need should be treated as vulnerable on a current status basis that compares to others and gives priority to those in most need no matter what their gender or personal description is.

  2. No. Even when included, men will want to get out of that bracket. The best thing is to create an even ground for both men and women to access the basic human needs and rights.
