What constitutes “masculinity?” Sadly, the term has been defined so harshly that it is having detrimental effects on our society. The definitions of gender roles bombard us everywhere, from books, to advertisements, to movies, there is seemingly no place one can hide from these absurd standards. Canadian sociologist Aaron H.

If, for whatever reasons, a man is not interested in these specific areas or is overly-emotional, society shuns these men and paints them as being lesser and backward.

For example, if a male does not have a father to discipline him, he may turn into a kid that fights at school, because he does not have that discipline that he would get from a father.

How exactly, I don’t know. But I know they effected how I viewed men and women.

Since ancient times it has been clearly shown that men have always had to be the gender that is superior in the sense that they must be strong and must know how to handle whatever it is they need to do. The Hebrew Bible declares that King David of Israel told his son to “be strong, and be a man”, before David died. Men have always needed to have that extra mile to go in order to be men.
