When people are asked to determine the characteristics that make a man, what attributes would they select? Most would include fearless, muscular, commanding, and emotionless, with the exception of anger, which is seen as a masculine emotion. Crying and having a sense of fashion are historically seen as feminine characteristics. Today, however, it has become more acceptable for men to display these characteristics. Obviously, it’s still not considered manly for a man to cry in public or wear flamboyant outfits, but showing these characteristics is less damaging to a man’s manliness than in the past.

As Gilman explains through the male character Van, "Those 'feminine charms' we are so fond of are not feminine at all, but mere reflected masculinity developed to please us because they had to please us, and in no way essential to the real fulfillment of their great process" (p59). In the same way, stereotypes about men can be thrown up as well. Gilman shows the reader that if people stop basing their identities on what others want, they will no longer be slaves to limitations. They will be free to discover their true selves and will allow others to do the same. Gilman shows readers that men and women are distinct people, but reminds us that they are people first.
Men treat women as objects there to fulfill their needs. Men think of women as being there just for their needs. Men do not see women for what they actually really are like they should. Men only think about what they want and not about the other qualities that women have to offer them. Men should see women as the same as they are, beautiful the way they are, good enough the way they are, and their personality.

An effective communication means that we should first understand the positive and negative characteristic on both genders to build up the trusts and respects to each other. However, men are always refused to do that, they usually live in a world with its own "Code of Conduct". In the article 'How Boys Become Men' by John Katz, the author states that boys usually cover up themselves from others in any circumstances.

It is knowing that he can so something, but he shouldn’t. A man who shows this quality understands that the point of intimacy is to have both partners be ready and willing, not a matter of getting the woman to do something because the man wants to do it. 2.)

Men use these standards to make women feel less than and push them to extremes to satisfy their gaze.

That is because Paul D wants to live, survive those horrors and Sethe doesn’t want to. Generally, men are taught not to give up in any situation and even if that goes same for women, feminists keep changing their base arguments according to their conveniences – “Women are strong and they strive for equal rights with respect” they say.
