It creates a culture where men are expected to be brutes and therefore are never held to the higher standards that are wholly within reach. They are forced into gender roles that are damaging to all in the society.

There are many negative beliefs towards the male gender because of the stereotypes society believes in. When people hear about a news of a rape incident between both genders, they automatically assume the female is the victim and the male is the offender. They make this assumption based on real statistics - since 99% of sex offenders are male and over 80% of the victims are female (sapac.umich.edu). For this reason, parents with daughters feel skeptical when their daughters is around a male since they believe she might be forced into sexual conducts. Society believe when males have a high tendency to feel sexual pleasure, they can not control themselves and will force another individual into sexual conducts in order to satisfy their urge.
To begin, masculinity is a central trait through which men try to compensate for their race and class subordination. Men use masculinity in an attempt to acquire social status and avoid being subordinated. However, among delinquent boys, masculinity is formed through negative encounters with probation officer, the police, juvenile hall, and school discipline. On the other hand, masculinities are also shaped positively by authority figures in the appropriate circumstances. Manhood is also accomplished through the subordination of women and through culture.
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.

In “The Boys Are Not All Right” by Michael Ian Black, the author uses different powers of persuasion to convince the audience to succumb to his opinion that men today don’t know how to properly express their feelings because of cultural norms that expressing your feelings is associated with weakness and femininity.

He says that men tend to lash out in anger because they don’t know how to properly express their feelings. He attempts to persuade his reader to start a conversation on how to make it more acceptable in society for men to express their emotions in a way that doesn’t potentially hurt others.

Violence Against Women- It’s a Men’s Issue Analysis Jackson Katz’s veritable and blunt tone conveys the harsh, hard-hearted truth of the biased society against women, race, and sexual orientation that we live in today by utilizing phrases like “men can say things that women can’t say” and “women get bashed for speaking out for themselves.” In the Ted Talk, “Violence Against Women- It’s a Men’s Issue,” Jackson Katz boldly addresses the evasive issue of domestic violence between a man and a woman as well as the need for men to be supportive of women. In addition,he discusses how men tend to dislike people confronting and challenging their power while they crush any opposition or protests against them.
Common among rape cases regardless of the gender of the victim is the disconnect between the psychological response and the physiological response. Men who are the victims of male perpetrated sexual assault may experience arousal despite the attack and actions being unwanted, which may lead them to question their sexuality. They equate an erection, or sexual arousal, with desire and attraction because that is what they have been taught through societal and cultural expectations for men to always be ready and always desire sex. Male victims may also feel “special” or like they were purposefully selected by their assailant which can further perpetuate their likelihood to internalize their shame and self-blame. Overwhelmingly, males are raped or sexually assaulted by someone they know and they are more likely to use their “position of trust to gain a psychological advantage” (King, 1990).
Thoreau and M.L.K Henry David Thoreau’s “Civil Disobedience”, published in 1849, and Martin Luther King Jr.’s “Letter from a Birmingham Jail”, published in 1963, have profound similarities while still having underlying differences. The one of the most distinct similarities in “Civil Disobedience” and “Letter from a Birmingham Jail” is the choice of action both authors decide to use, nonviolent measures, and who they are protesting against, which is government and its actions. On the same note, both essays express the dissatisfaction in the average white citizen’s acceptance for the status quo on slavery and then segregation. For example, both essays have a strikingly similar sentence; King states, “I had hoped that the white moderate

For my Quaker essay I focused on John Woolman. He was British-American Quaker leader and abolitionist whose Journal is recognized as one of the classic records of the spiritual inner life. John was born on October 19, 1720 in Rancocas, New Jersey and died on October 7, 1772, while on a trip to England John Woolman died of smallpox. He is best known for his Journal, and for his lifelong work to end slavery. Both were sources of inspiration to the emerging abolitionists of his day, and continue to inspire readers today.
