The Buddy System

Most interesting is what Niobe Way shares about the connections between her book and male relationships. Although she acknowledges that boys/men are capable of, in fact do possess emotions and expression, she fails to unpack the system(s) (patriarchy) that have put them inside of the "man box". She points out that in high school, they fear being called girls or gay- but does not explore why this is problematic. In my opinion, this is a fine example of how professionals in the psychology field could use Womens Studies course or two.
