Men are supposed to be tough and not allowed to exhibit emotions. In today’s world, there is a masculine ideal preventing men from being true to themselves. This mentality begins during boyhood. As a result, most men refuse to talk about emotions and hold in feeling of loneliness that evolves into depression.
We shouldn’t make presumptions about a person based on his or her sex. This means that gender wouldn’t be an impediment to progress. We all have to understand that being a man would have nothing to do with traditional notions of masculinity.
We don’t have to confuse masculinity with sex. A person’s sex is natural. Masculinity is a set of guidelines we have imposed upon men as a consequence of culture and history.
