As the social order evolved in the Post-Patriarchal Era, the language also evolved reflecting the changes in society. The following excerpt from the Merriam-Webster Collegiate Dictionary, 19th Edition, published in 2038, highlights some of the changes.
The mid-2020s was a watershed period for male fashions in the Post-Patriarchal Era.
Whereas some males still tended to wear clothing influenced by womenswear, like the lad in the pantsuit on the left, more males began embracing the masculine styles that designers introduced for the "new distaff" side of the population, like the pleated mini-caftan worn by the fellow on the right .
Most males, who were born and raised in the Patriarchal Era reluctantly accepted the "New Masculinity" of the Post-Patriarchal Era because in the new woman's world, it was clear that the old masculinity was gone with the wind.
