    You havent provided much info about your cat? is he or she spayed/neutered? Is he or she a rescue cat? There is a possibility that your cat has had a bad experience with a male and his/her fear is now generalised to all human males? If it were me, i would try and introduce as many different a friendly types of men you can, slowly, and respectfully,if kitty gets to stressed with this stop immediately. have a male give him/her a treat then kitty may start to associate men(preferably a man that owns cats, or lives with cats, that way he will be more relaxed around your kitty and kitty will pick up on that) with good treats instead, if your cat has not been socialised from an early age to different types of people this can happen. But without more info i dont know what else to say, please make sure your kitty visits the vets to rule out any medical reasons for this behaviour . hope you are well
