What It Means To Be A Man In 2015: Bloggers Share Their Thoughts On Masculinity

Looking up "masculinity," I found an interesting article: What It Means to Be a Man in 2015

In the article, men give their opinion on what it actually means to be a guy in 2015. One example is the previous notion that men babysit their child. This means that when a single dad is with his child, many onlookers might think he is babysitting his child. It makes no sense because it is impossible to babysit your own child. Men who are stay at home dads receive backlash for doing this. People still find this strange. It also talks about how men are trained to not express any emotions. “Men are trained to be instinctively hesitant to express any emotion or enact any behavior understood to be antithetical to their masculinity, which in turn is perceived as the defining feature of both their worth and their identity.” It’s important to change the way people perceive masculinity.
