For example, a man may be unable to express his emotions in fear of it ruining his masculinity; this will create problems within a romantic relationship, which may lead him to use drugs or alcohol as an outlet or being abusing his partner in order to release the pain that he is experiencing internally. Unfortunately, men seem unable to deal with being unable to express their emotions, but who would be able to bear that emotional burden? This weight often leads men to only emotion accepted by society’s hypermasculinity, anger. Katz from Tough Guise and Tough Guise 2 offered statistics: eighty six percent of domestic abuse cases involving physical injury are from men, twenty five percent of men will use violence against a partner, males significantly exceed females who suffer from
It is like our manhood is consumed by these ranks and by people who still remind us that we are not fit for society and that we do not deserve to be men just because we do things that are not considered to be manly enough. The brilliant minds of other men will change slowly, people will start to do things or start acting in a different way than men want others too. The problem is that men are afraid of other men because they think that they will reflect their image of manhood and how a man should act. They are afraid that these people who are homosexual or those who look and act like a women will ruin the image of manhood.
So all it includes in the story might not be fair when we see from a woman's point of view. The writer mentioned many demands of women and men in the relationship. In my view I felt that the writer could not prove some point. He mentioned men want fairness. But as far as I know women try to do things more fairly in the relationship.
With an increase is advertisements that objectify and sexualize men, it can be expected that it will leave the impressionable young boys of society to have low self-worth and feel disadvantaged, how women have felt for a number of years. Although some may argue that this is a step forward in gender equality due to the fact men and women are now being shone in the same light, a majority of people would agree that it is nothing short of harmful to society as it has been proved a countless number of times with advertisements that objectify and over sexualize
If the president were to find ways to create better standards for women, studies by outsidethebeltway show that men tend to act very differently in front of women and if women are set into the same work environments that are solely meant for men, work results and ethics will decrease significantly. According to the studies when women are put into the same work environment as men they tend to show off their abilities and if multiple men are to try their best to impress the girl, then fights are likely to happen to impress the women. A woman president would increase the likeliness to put women in the same position as men, in reality when it would only put a strain on society. As a women is set as a goal to most
The manner in which men and women socialise influences perceptions of conduct and experiences. With this in mind, it would be logical to conclude that with such differences between men and women on the ethical front, misunderstandings and misinterpretation would be rife within societies (Msomi, 2012). One such difference is how women perceive men who pay for sexual services compared with men. Women tend to assume that men who pay for sex are sad, lonely, and insecure while men have this tendency to believe that it is a sexual desire that drives them to such actions. Irrelevant of the reason is, it is hard to state accurately that a man is either good or bad and that his moral compass is pointing to where it should.
In effort to try and explain why the partner violence and relationship gender power inequity places women more at risk for HIV infection, research has been done with men , it has shown that men in South Africa who have been physically violent towards their other halves( partners) are more likely to be infected with the HIV virus which puts their partners at risk because some men don’t share their status with the women in their lives because of fear of rejection but continue to put them at risk by not condomising with them. In conclusion women are seen to have to be more feminine and always please men and that is why they are always the ones at risk because the gender inequality in the country gives the men power to do what they want and women should always except and be submissive to that especially in black
The male have greater power in conversation and another indication that females have less power is that they have to struggle a lot to keep a conversation going with the other sex. In the society, it is still not right in the eyes of other people if a girl will ask a boy out on a date. The norms dictates that the women have to wait to get asked to and that it is only that the male always has to make the first move (Stanley, 1986). In the media, one very famous evidence is the movie “Fifty Shades of Gray” were the female protagonist is objectified by the male protagonist.
While for long time women have taken centre stage and have been pushing for women’s right and equality in a largely male dominated society. We forget that it is not only the women’s identity which is warped and under heavy scrutiny of the man-made categories that we have created but men as well. So when asking various men and women and questioning them on how they defined masculinity, they were left silently confused and unsure what they had to say. However, they answered it along the similar lines, “by possessing qualities traditionally attributed to men, such as aggressiveness.” Or “having qualities regarded as characteristic of men and boys, as strength, vigour, boldness, etc.; manly” When asked about what traits fall under ideal masculinity, they stated the following traits
Tannen gives evidence of how men and women respond differently during conversation: “Linguist Lynette Hirschman found that women make more listening sounds such as ‘mhm,’ ‘uhuh,’ and ‘yeah,’ to show ‘I’m with you.’” Men prefer to give silent attention, which women are not accustomed to and may percieve this silence as the men not listening. Tannen points out that since these habits are so different, it can be frustrating, which I agree with. Both people in the relationship tend to complain about the other person’s habits, and this can ruin the relationship, which Tannen shows examples of. If this difference in habit is not communicated within the relationship, it will never be solved and could possibly lead to divorce.
Hello Mychell, We basically had the same responses to the questions and I liked your phrasing to the responses. Another stereotype I had pointed was that a men thought of women always needing a place of comfort that suits them the best. However, this is false because as a woman during that time they were not allowed to speak up for themselves or really make their own decisions because of the lack of rights. She certainly emphasizes the fact that men always belittle women when it comes to intelligence and strength.
In the article titled Face-off on the playing field By, Judith B. Stamper explains girls have their own story of support or discrimination, success also the debate of girls be allowed to compete on boys’ sports team.

From the time we are young society weans us into believing that there are only two genders, male and female. Well at least in the United States of America. There was a point in time when being gay was unspeakable. If that was unspeakable a man acting like or trying to become a woman was just madness. If a person even let on that they felt like they were the opposite gender they were thought of as mentally insane.
In the short story, “A Jury of Her Peers”, by Susan Glaspell, the author shows how we should perceive gender roles. Susan focuses on the female side of gender roles more often than the male. Only to reveal and focus on the inequality a female is treated because of her gender role. Susan depicts a whole story where the men are the predators and the women are the victims, and how when more women begin to stand up for each other the more you begin to see the destruction of gender roles.
