Masculinities Mondays: 26th of January 2015

The Huffington Post recently interviewed a group of men about their opinions on masculinity. What emerges is a view of (at least hegemonic) masculinity as restrictive and unachievable. As one man states,

“I think a lot of us pretend to be quite different than we really are.”

And they all appear to reach the same conclusion – that we’d all be much better off without it:

“In an ideal world..masculinity wouldn’t mean anything”

Do you agree? Does the world need masculinity and femininity? In your ideal world, what would masculinity mean?
