Redefining manhood

  • 1. When patriarchy is crushing our men
  • 3. Which messages do we teach our boys?
  • 8. Starting when they are toddlers, boys and men are consistently and belligerently taught to suppress their emotions.
  • 11. Boys are forced to conform or face the threat of expulsion and abuse • Real men do not express their emotions, except for anger • Real men are financial providers not care givers • Real men are heterosexual and dominant in and out of the bedroom • Real men are leaders and have the final word in any discussion • Real men are never unemployed • Real men are always confident • Real men play sports and talk about sports as their primary mode of interaction
  • 12. The pop culture environment that surrounds boys introduces them to a world where traditionally masculine traits- like toughness, aggression, and stoicism- are highly esteemed and where female influence is all but absent.
  • 14. Even myths portray men as aggressive and physically dominant

Nature and scope Methodological and ethical challenges associated with interviewing young children make research into child sexual abuse difficult. As a result, most population-based analyses are retrospective: Adults (age 18 and older) and, in an increasing number of surveys, adolescents (usually age 15 and over), are asked whether they had ever been exposed to “unwanted” sexual activity during childhood. “Childhood” in these studies varies from under 18 years of age to under 12 years of age.6 Unwanted sexual activity is often broken out by researchers into two main categories: “contact” abuse, including vaginal or anal penetration with a penis, finger or an object, or giving or receiving oral sex; and “noncontact” abuse, such as being forced to watch pornography, to disrobe or to view each others’ genitalia. Outcomes of these studies vary widely. According to data collated from 25 countries worldwide, estimates of exposure for girls range from as low as 2 percent in Samoa and Serbia and Montenegro to 30 percent or higher in Barbados, Costa Rica and Switzerland. For boys, estimates range from 1 percent in Norway to 20 percent in Nicaragua.7 It is generally impossible to compare these statistics because none of the research is standardised. Exactly what constitutes child sexual abuse and which types of abuse are included differs from study to study.8 Based on available data, the World Health Organization estimates that approximately 25 percent of girls and 8 percent of boys around the globe have been subjected to some form of child sexual abuse.9 Given its hidden nature, these numbers most likely underrepresent the true scope of the problem. Regardless of its limitations, the growing body of research on child sexual abuse has shed light on some common characteristics of this type of violence. Girls, for example, are significantly more likely to be abused than boys. In many parts of the world, however, boys may be even less likely to report violence than girls, making the true extent of child sexual abuse against boys a critical area for further study. In one notable survey of secondary school and university stu girls reported sexual abuse as childr boys.10 But these findings are except studies found that girls are one-and-a-h report child sexual abuse than boys.11 indicates that compared with boys, gi victimisation throughout childhood an adolescence.12 Police statistics from co Lithuania, South Africa and the United all reported rapes are committed again which are under age 12.13 In addition, much greater risk of incest than boys. to 60 percent of sexual abuse in famili Perpetrators who abuse boys are mor although in the Sri Lanka research cit members as the primary perpetrator physical and/or learning disabilities are While women do commit sexual vio majority of abusers are men, regardl Contrary to popular perception, few pe fathers, stepfathers, grandfathers, uncl or family friends.

In Southern Sudan, for example, less than 7 percent of teachers are women, and in Bolivia only 16 percent of all head teachers are women. Women hold only 30 percent or less of teaching posts in 16 countries of sub-Saharan Africa.10 Female teachers usually are concentrated in urban settings, with far fewer in rural and remote areas. Such male-dominated contexts make it very difficult for girls to assert themselves and to challenge male power. Doing so may mean ostracism and losing the support of friends and family. Reports from South Africa, for example, indicate that boys specifically target girls they perceive to much larger number of them (63 percent) knew other girls who had been approached. Girls reported that teachers were quite open about their intentions, making advances on girls during class and sports activities. Some girls were thought to accept such propositions for financial benefit, to be favoured in class, to avoid punishment or to gain better marks.15 In South Africa, one teacher who sexually abused a number of students offered a young woman high grades in exchange for sex: “I went to his dorm and walked to the lounge. He gave me a hooch [an alcoholic drink]. I was lame. I knew what was happening to me, but I couldn’t move. He picked me up and took me to his room and started taking my clothes off. He took his clothes off. He’s twice my size and, like, five times my weight and has so many muscles. Then he penetrated me. When I came to, I got up and went to my dorm. … I was scared to tell anyone because I was afraid no one would believe me. I had been Boys may feel the need to “prove” themselves, and one way of doing so is to sexually harass girls, either verbally or physically — and to do so publicly. In some circumstances this may go as far as gang rape.

  • 41. The term “homosexuality” was in fact not coined until 1869, and before that time, the strict dichotomy between “gay” and “straight” did not yet exist. • Attraction to, and sexual activity with other men was thought of as something you did, not something you were. It was a behavior — accepted by some cultures and considered sinful by others. • But at the turn of the 20th century, the idea of homosexuality shifted from a practice to a lifestyle and an identity. • You did not have temptations towards a certain sin, you were a homosexual person. Thinking of men as either “homosexual” or “heterosexual” became common. • And this new category of identity was at the same time pathologized — decried by psychiatrists as a mental illness, by ministers as a perversion, and by politicians as something to be legislated against. • As this new conception of homosexuality as a stigmatized and onerous identifier took root in American culture, men began to be much more careful to not send messages to other men, and to women, that they were gay. • And this is the reason why, it is theorized, men have become less comfortable with showing affection towards each other over the last century. • After WWII, casually touching between men in photographs decreased precipitously. It first vanished among middle-aged men, but lingered among younger men. • But in the 50s, when homosexuality reached its peak of pathologization, eventually they too created more space between themselves, and while still affectionate began to interact with less ease and intimacy.

Just as she practices soccer or piano, she can practice small acts of assertiveness like ordering at restaurants or shaking hands when she meets new people. Get your daughter into sports or other organized activities where she’ll learn to collaborate, speak up, mess up—and try again. 5 DON’T TELL YOUR SON TO “MAN UP!” SITUATION As important as it is to teach your daughter to lead, it is equally important to teach your son to respect his feelings and care for others. Movies, video games, and comic books bombard boys with stories of men who are strong, aggressive, and in charge but rarely vulnerable or nurturing. Boys often emulate these oversimplified characters. As a father, you can model a more complete definition of manhood. SOLUTION Teach your son to value intelligence and thoughtfulness over toughness. Encourage him to respect his own feelings and have empathy for others. Avoid language like “man up” or “be a man,” which can be as damaging to boys as words like “bossy” and “know-it-all” can be for girls. Model gender equality for your son by supporting the women in your life and celebrating their achievements. DID YOU KNOW?
