Some people may criticize men for owning cats but I think that is unfair and only leads to shaming people, and reinforcing stereotypes. In the United States, cats can be seen as more feminine than dogs because cats do not play as agressively as some dogs do.

Therefore, the idea of a man owning a cat would suggest to someone who believes strongly in stereotypes, that a male cate owner is less manly than a male dog owner, for example. I think a man should be able to own a cat without being criticized.
