When men communicate verbally, they are a lot blunter than women are and they say exactly what they mean. Because women are analytical, they often try to “read between the lines” when men never created lines to be read in the first place (Torppa). This frustrates men and women and causes miscommunication. When women tell men their problems, men’s natural instinct is to fix the problem, so many times they offer simple solutions. Women take these simple solutions offensively because women just want to say how they feel, not ask for an answer.
This proves that men don’t find the need to be a good communicator. Women always get mad at the men for not being that good of conversationalist but, are the men really to blame. If men find communication as important as women they would communicate better. Many men believe that women lowered their expectations for the men they wouldn’t be as disappointed. Women need to accept the fact that men aren’t very good communicators.
It is bad to have such perception in this world of freedom, we should have an equal opportunity for every individual and don't let this behavior to bind us all. In our general perception, men are always stronger than women because of the men's body frame and our basic believes. While men born to be strong and hardly to be the loser, they always refuse to talk about the bad things had happened around them. To be a stereotyped of men, they feared to show their weakness and fears from all. In order to build a healthy relationship between men and women, an effective communication is needed.
Most of the articles are about how to build up certain muscles, how to ‘please your partner,’ and how to ‘be a better man’ (according to them). Although men are not as vocal about being under pressure to look a certain way, they most certainly are, to the same extent as women. Women are supposed to be tan, skinny, and muscular; men are under pressure to look the same way. And even though most feminists will say that men are the ones that pressure women to look that way, the same can be said for women. Women want what they see in the magazines, not a scrawny, super pale, nerds.
When Annie sings “anything you can do I can do better” men took this idea and ran with it. This is a world where women cannot outshine men; at least that is what the stereotype is. Although women can outshine men, it is a typecast that men should not let this happen. This gender gap occurs because our society allows it. No matter what problems get fixed, there are always stereotypes and issues that still have, yet, to be solved.
Women often put them selves down, by saying comments such as, “ that’s a man’s job” or “I’m good at sports for being a woman.” These types of comments are not really harmful, but make women look weak and no capable of doing as well as men. Also, women often have stereotypes other women as well. For example, when men challenge women, people automatically support men or feel that they would do better than women, which it shows that men still have more privilege and power than women. Another subject that it is discuss in this article, it is how white individuals are not aware of their their privileges. White people don’t have to work as hard as other minority groups to get respect and feel equal to others in different social settings.
Muscular images shown by the media lead to body dissatisfaction for men. Hargreaves adds, “For men, the current ideal male body is lean but highly muscular” (Hargreaves). Media has that specific image of what beauty really is. Men and women both become dissatisfied with their bodies because media sees beauty
The purpose of this research is to give importance and awareness to male body dissatisfaction. Plenty of research has explored the effects that unrealistic portrayal of body-images has on females, but not many have focused on the effects that media has on male body-esteem. Media, however, affects male body-esteem differently than in females. In most recent years, males have been bombarded with media portrayal of the ideal male body-image. In contrast to females, men are concerned with being stronger and bigger in body size.
She believes men speak when they feel a need to impress or if their social status is in question. The females however, spoke with much more closeness. Tannen says, “For females, talk is the glue that holds their relationships... ... middle of paper ... ...them control power, wealth, and social resources because men think that women do not want them. Another one of Tannen’s critics, Senta Troemel-Ploetz, accuses Deborah Tannen of ignoring the possibility that men and women communicate differently because of differences of power. Troemel-Ploetz contends that the problem goes beyond conversational style.
The traditional view of men and women is changing which is not causing a male crisis instead it is benefitting society. One of the groups that I celebrate fights to eliminate sexism and the stereotypes within society is a profeminist movement known as the National Organization for Men Against Sexism. This movement in compared to the other male movements focuses on sexism and making other males aware of the stereotypes and societal views of women. After watching Tough Guise 2, it is evident that there are many pressures that men face in ways in which they should behave. The pressures are so high that if men do not follow these pressures lead them to become outcasts within peers and even their family.
