48 Times People Claimed They Knew What Masculinity Is All About Yet It Sounded Messed Up


Following the conventional norms of manhood can bring social and professional rewards to some boys and men. But it's not a one-size-fits-all kind of thing.


So when people are telling everyone that real men don't express emotion openly, that they have to be "tough all the time", that anything other than that makes them "feminine" or weak, there's a problem. They're putting others in a box. Scratch that. They're putting half of this world's population in a box.


Showing just how often that happens online, the Twitter account Hot Masculinity Takes acceps submissions from folks who find the absolute worst opinions about men on the Internet and reshares them on its wall. Judging by the number of entries, it happens quite often.
