Tolmach Lakoff (1975) in her attention to masculinity and men´s use of language suggested that gendered linguistic norms for men served as ways of portraying an engagement with power. This issue was addressed not only with respect to men of different social classes but also to men whose political or occupational identities distant them from masculine norms. Tolmach Lakoff´s work led the way for those men who may choose to resist the trend of masculinity. There is also a dominant and degrading discussion on women´s desire to “having it all” (usually as one of the female form of greed) or the rise of the “supermom” and the “soccer mom”.

And men’s failure to join in and say, “Me, too, sexual assault needs to end,” helps keep the problem hidden” (par. 13), pushing at the idea that men speaking up is
The videos “Tough Guise 2” and Jackson Katz’s TEDTallk are both extremely similar in that they both discuss the masculinity of males and how it is being used negatively in society today. There are many reasons and theory’s for why men do what they do but one factor that always seems to occur is trying to prove one’s masculinity. Whether proving it through strength, gender norms, personality, and sometimes even violence, it seems to be prevalent among every male. Victim blaming then happens after these incidents occur and women or children are looked at for causing these actions to happen to them. Both these videos were very informational and eye opening to the issues of male masculinity and “women’s issues”.
Newsom says that as a culture, the society is pushing men to treat women in a certain way. The Mask You Live In” shows us that many gender traits are solely created by the society and that the images of men that boys receive at home and from television, movies, games and video sport events that give confidence to them to be aloof and unemotional, dominant and to resolve issues with violence. “We want to strengthen that loving is not just a feminine trait,” says Jennifer Siebel. “My son is always grabbing ice or getting Band Aids and taking care of the worn out knees and elbows. It’s about growing him as an individual
Title IX When Title IX was passed, one in twenty-one high schools girls played a sport. Most people think Title IX only applies to sports, but athletics is one of the many areas addressed by the law.
