Also, don't limit ourselves and just following the majority. For example, women shouldn't be in science major, or men shouldn't be in nursing. In order to stop this unequal social perception towards men and women, we should encourage girls to be involve in competitive activities that our traditional for boys only.
Masculinity or femininity, however, are not inherent properties of individuals (Dalley-Trim, 2009). Boys will fake who they really are in order to make it seem on the outside that they are a” manly man” like their predecessors. If you don’t meet up to these expectations, some will get picked on and called names such as girly, gay, feminine, or named “sissies.” Becoming a man in our society is more or less creating yourself into this mold of manliness. There is a certain code of conduct that every young boy has to follow. Most boys will stray from the things they really... ... middle of paper ... ..., be the strongest, and be someone who others would look to as tough.
In one way or another they all said, “That it is just wrong, and... ... middle of paper ... ... should be able to look the mirror at themselves and not feel “gay” or not masculine, just as a female can. I am not saying that males should change their whole personality or standards, I just feel that they should conform to society a little better than they do. Women are strong, but still loving. Men should learn from the environment around them. To be more masculine they should learn to cope with their sexuality, and not be afraid to cry.
Men are still shying away from jobs that are considered “feminine”, mostly because the media still makes it seem as though they will be less of a man if they choose careers that are female dominated. In conclusion, male discrimination has become a very subtle but more prevalent part of today's society, and it isn't being given the attention it deserves. People need to realize that men’s rights need just as much attention as women’s. Men are being portrayed terribly in the media, not being given a fair chance to receive custody of their children, are being treated unjustly by today’s justice system and sometimes even being mocked for their choice of careers. If gender equality is to be achieved then male discrimination must be taken as seriously as sexism against women.

Since the beginning of time and even now, men are more valued than women and people especially men are resistant to change that. I think it is a problem because it doesn’t allow women the same opportunities to be able to excel in this world. I think everyone in this world should be treated equally and allowed the same opportunities no matter if they are male or female.
Although it can be argued that men and women are not at the same level, the gap between them has been reduced. Men do not want to women to outshine them for reasons other than being cruel. There are exceptions to every case, but for the most part, it is done without thinking that it can hurt a woman. A man’s ego, and to impress friends are key factors as to why men try to be superior.

In “Dude, You’re a Fag,” multiple boys that were interviewed said they “didn’t like gay people” and were disgusted by gay men but lesbians were “good” (Pascoe). These boys only viewed female homosexuality as “good” because of its place in the heterosexual male fantasy and not because they approved of homosexuality as a legitimate and accepted sexuality (Pascoe). The binary gender system creates a male dominated society that allows for only female homosexuality to exist because even through it goes against the strict normative heterosexuality it can still be a source of pleasure for men. Male homosexuality, however, is not accepted because in a male dominated world it is associated with not being masculine. Through the use of the slur “fag,” people demean and emasculate boys and men (Pascoe).
They should have every sport that is considered a boy sport for women too. So no, personally myself do not think women should play with men professionally. Even though women should be treated equally in the world to men they still have no spot on a mens team. Women could get hurt by playing with men because men have different genes that makes them be able to jump higher than girls and etc. They should never call a certain sport a boy sport.
The Caucasian head coach of the Titans is replaced by an African American coach (Denzel Washington) from North Carolina, which causes a fury among white parents and students. Tensions arise quickly among the players and throughout the community when players of different races are forced together on the same football team. Coach Boone is a great example of a leader. He knows he faces a tough year of teaching his hated team. But, instead of listening to the hating town or administrators, Boone pushes his team to their limits and forces good relationships between players, regardless of race.
If a man is not seen as masculine but seen as feminine, he is normally cast as a gay because that is how our society sees men. When a guy is seen as a gay, than straight men are the ones that have power over them. If people of color are asked who is in power, they will say that white straight men have all the power, but if society is to ask men themselves, they do not think they have power. This is due to the fact they have never been oppressed and don't know what it means to truly be undermined by someone else. At a very young age, a boy would have the pressure of masculinity.
