Posted on Updated on

How men view themselves as men influences their attitudes and behaviors not only to themselves and other men but also toward women. The man Box is still quite tight as this studie shows.
The Man Box
 report, is a study on young men’s attitudes, behaviors, and understandings of manhood. The research, conducted with a representative, random sample of young men aged 18 to 30 in the US, UK, and Mexico, reveals that most men still feel pushed to live in the “Man Box” – a rigid construct of cultural ideas about male identity. This includes being self-sufficient, acting tough, looking physically attractive, sticking to rigid gender roles, being heterosexual, having sexual prowess, and using aggression to resolve conflicts.
