Pascoe’s main argument about the “fag discourse” is that the practice of predominately straight males to call other people, objects, or events fag or gay isn’t simply a matter of homophobia or a negative outlook on gay men and that instead it is part of a larger societal issue that promotes and encourages any male to be undeniably masculine. She expands on this by exploring and discussing some of the many ways that this mindset harms all those within its reach at any and every level. As the term would imply, the use of fag or gay as a negative term hurts those that are in fact gay males. Despite the fact that the term has slightly deviated from its specific use to put gay individuals down and has become a generalized insult, it still has and for the indefinite future will maintain that connection to gay men. Whether it is used in a specifically homophobic way or as a general negative term, the fact that it is being used as an insult shows the underlying negativity to men that are attracted to other men.

It has brainwashed men into thinking no means yes and yes means no. In social media posts and other media platforms the brainwashing continues, men still see women as sexual objects that cannot have a brain and cannot have an opinion so when there is a somewhat intelligent comment made by a woman men are brainwashed to think she cannot and try to undermine her by silencing the comment. Men are still even taught today that women are to be subservient to them and that men are to know more than

in both Ancient Greece and modern society, the lives of men are perceived to be of higher importance due to their masculinity. Meeting societies views on masculinity helps men do as they please. Their masculinity is made to be a very important thing, so when men have a physique they think they will not be told anything because their looks give them an excuse. With an image, men begin to feel higher up because of their strength, they do incorrect actions and also cheat. In The Odyssey we can see this masculinity portrayed by none other than the archetypal hero, Odysseus.

It was once said, ¨We teach boys to be afraid of fear, of weakness, of vulnerability. We teach them to mask their true selves, because they have to be a hard man. ¨Men want to have so much power, but they don 't have any power at all. The hip hop artist just has physical power over their body and how they display themselves, so they dress certain ways to get respect to feel powerful which also is hypermasculinity.
However, a change in tone and message of these women became a bitter pill that men and most women were unwilling to swallow. Men could not stand to be lectured by a woman.
