Throughout the examples of sexism toward men, he is trying to prove for the readers his point , in which I agree with, which is the gender discrimination against men is as much important as it is not obvious. People’s apathy and lack of interest about men sexism stimulate Berlatsky to describe men’s injustice situations. Noah Berlatsky edits this article from a book and this reflects his personality as an educated person and likes to look at the issues from another perspective. What I realized that Berlatsky is being biased against women accomplishment in the prevalence of women discrimination controversy. Thus, he fires up men feelings in order to demand for a fair treatment when he says “If men can learn from them, it will be everyone’s benefit.” However, Berlatsky brings about change when he discusses men sexism issue which is an incurious discourse in our daily basis.
She argues that we will never reach gender equality if we continue to dismiss sexism against men as a real issue. She explains, “My ultimate nightmare is that my daughter will get anorexia and/or want to become a pole dancer. My worry for the boys is that they 'll face bullying and/or get mugged as teenagers. Statistically, the latter is more likely.” This is a helpful quote because it shows how sexism against men is real while connecting it to her own real life. The author also argues that, “As a society, globally we are much more likely to tolerate violence against men than against women.
The Change in Sexism As Letty Cottin Pogrebin once said, “ When men are oppressed it’s a tragedy. When women are oppressed it’s simply tradition.” Many women have to deal with sexism in everyday basis; sexism is the prejudice or discrimination based on the sex of a person. Trough Of Mice and Men which takes place in the 1930’s, Steinbeck’s discussion on sexism is still an obstacle that faces society today. John Steinbeck wrote about sexism as a social issue in his 1937 novel Of Mice and Men, and, even though there have been some immense improvements in the role of women in society, the problem still stands today. Because John Steinbeck saw sexism as an important social issue in his time he wrote about it in his novel Of Mice and Men.

Metrosexuality challenges this by society becoming more accepting and open to new ideas and change. Men who were once depicted as masculine are more than ever able to express themselves rather than hide in fear of society 's judgement. Overall the more masculinity is challenged the easier it will be for society to begin to diminish the use of gender stereotypes in the future. Additionally, modern day man consecutively aids towards the depreciation of the male gender stereotypes by challenging them against female stereotypes. This means that the modern day man will participate in what society would associate as a ‘woman 's job’ like staying at home to care for family.
I would say that it’s true that sexism plays an important role when someone is trying to a get a job or not in this world. For example, when employees have a male manager, they start to think that he’s a leader for telling them do. However, if those same employees had a female manager who was telling tell them what to do then the employees would think she’s bossy instead of a leader. Additionally, for the most part that example is usually not criticized by people because sexism has entered their brain in a subconscious way so they don’t think it’s a problem for employees to think that a male manger is a leader while thinking a female manager is bossy. Moreover, Frye states, “For every type of occasion there are distinct clothes, gear, and accessories, hair-dos, cosmetics and scents, labeled as “ladies” or “men’s” and labeling us as females or males, and most of the time most of us choose, use, wear or bear the paraphernalia associated with our sex” (Frye, p.847).
Let us not forget that gender is something that is so embedded in our social institutions, actions, beliefs and our desires that it appears to us to be completely natural. Research has shown that gender power inequality in relationships and intimate partner violence places women at a high risk of HIV infection especially in the African continent. Men’s behaviors tend to show high violent and sexual risky behaviors. Raewyn Connell’s notion states the hegemonic masculinity and reflections on emphasized femininities to argue that these sexual, and male violent, practices are rooted in cultural ideals of gender identities. In our country gender identities show diversity, the dominant ideal of black African manhood emphasizes toughness, strength
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 order to restore their image as men, they start to mock these people, have conflicts with them, bully them until they start to feel desperate in life, which will lead them to hurting themselves or commit suicide because they think they are wrong and should not even
LITERATURE VIEW In today’s world, it cannot be denied that patriarchy, political, social and traditional power of male over other genders, is faced inevitably (Goldberg, 1993) Sexism is one of the most common problematic issues in today’s society that shapes people behavior on gender and usually it is seen as hostile behavior against women. However, its one side of which people are unaware is missed: positive-thought part of sexism (Glick and Fiske, 1996). Benevolent sexism and hostile sexism are subdivisions of ambivalent sexism. Benevolent sexism refers to sexist ideas, behaviors thought for the benefit of females. On the contrary, hostile sexism is having negative, unfavorable notions and behave accordingly against women (Glick and Fiske,
However, with increasing participation in the work force, equal opportunities, globalization and forcing needs, sexism is seen as both still existent in today’s society, but also to a great extent less than it was in the past. Women’s roles in modern entertainment has changed, they are no longer side products of a man’s success, merely
