Christian Masculinity, the WWF and Unbelonging by Ryan Thomas Neace

This is reposted from Huffington Post. See full article HERE

"Like most other components of the self, our masculine identities are not binary. With very little exception, there is no fixed "this is masculine" and "this is not," except what is defined as such by fluid culture -- European "masculine" is often the antithesis of the American kind. There exists within masculine identity a continuum of expressions informed by cultural, economic, ethnic, racial and religious factors. When we fail to acknowledge this, we needlessly estrange those whose experiences -- and therefore, masculinity -- differ."
