What does it mean to be 'male positive'?

Being male-positive means being affirming of men and optimistic about men. It is to believe that men can change and approaching them, including one’s self, simultaneously with gentleness and accountability; as we support every man's efforts at positive change. A male-positive perspective resists feeling hopeless about men and rejects the idea that men are somehow intrinsically emotionless, violent or sexist. At the same time, there is a recognition that individual men are responsible for their oppressive behavior (that exists within a context of a patriarchal and sexist social structure) and can choose to change it. Being male-positive means building close relations and supportive alliances among men in order to support mutual growth and change. Male-positivity is also about recognizing and praising the positive aspects of masculinities.
