Healthy Masculinity: The Idea That Men Can Control Themselves

An excellent article by Soraya Chemaly on healthy masculinity and the relationship between violence and masculinity which can also be the connection between compassion and masculinity. "Here is some Breaking News, Patriarchy: MEN CAN CONTROL THEMSELVES. They do all the time. Day in and day out, all over the world. Men demonstrate that they are capable of control, kindness, empathy, compassion and humanity."

This is a interesting article because it is funny that all men are lumped into the stereo-type that they can't control themselves. There are men out there that can act respectful, responsibly and intelligent. The idea that they can't just adds fuel to the fire on the many pre-conceived notions regarding the male sex. At some point men can get some credit for being humane and flawed individuals who shouldn't always be judged negatively.
