Masculinity has played an important role in lesbian culture,  although lesbians vary widely in the degree to which they express masculinity and femininity. In LGBT cultures, masculine women are often referred to as " butch ".
Two concerns over the study of the history of masculinity are that it would stabilize the historical process rather than change it and that a cultural overemphasis on the approach to masculinity lacks the reality of actual experience. According to John Tosh, masculinity has become a conceptual framework used by historians to enhance their cultural explorations instead of a specialty in its own right.
According to Tosh, the culture of masculinity has outlived its usefulness because it cannot fulfill the initial aim of this history to discover how manhood was conditioned and experienced and he urged "questions of behaviour and agency".
Stefan Dudink believes that the methodological approach trying to categorize masculinity as a phenomenon undermined its historiographic development.
The importance he places on public history hearkens back to the initial aims of gender history, which sought to use history to enlighten and change the present. Tosh appeals to historians to live up to the "social expectation" of their work,  which would also require a greater focus on subjectivity and masculinity. In a study of the Low Countries , Dudink proposes moving beyond the history of masculinity by embedding analysis into the exploration of nation and nationalism making masculinity a lens through which to view conflict and nation-building.
Media images of boys and young men may lead to the persistence of harmful concepts of masculinity. According to men's-rights activists, the media does not address men's-rights issues and men are often portrayed negatively in advertising. According to a paper submitted by Tracy Tylka to the American Psychological Association , "Instead of seeing a decrease in objectification of women in society, there has just been an increase in the objectification of both sexes.
And you can see that in the media today. Research in the United Kingdom found, "Younger men and women who read fitness and fashion magazines could be psychologically harmed by the images of perfect female and male physiques.
In Eisler and Skidmore studied masculinity, creating the idea of "masculine stress" and finding three elements of masculinity which often result in emotional stress:. Because of social norms and pressures associated with masculinity, men with spinal-cord injuries must adapt their self-identity to the losses associated with such injuries; this may "lead to feelings of decreased physical and sexual prowess with lowered self-esteem and a loss of male identity.
Feelings of guilt and overall loss of control are also experienced. Brett Martin and Juergen Gnoth found that although feminine men privately preferred feminine models, they expressed a preference for traditional masculine models in public; according to the authors, this reflected social pressure on men to endorse traditional masculine norms. In their book Raising Cain: Protecting The Emotional Life of Boys , Dan Kindlon and Michael Thompson wrote that although all boys are born loving and empathic, exposure to gender socialization the tough male ideal and hypermasculinity limits their ability to function as emotionally-healthy adults.
According to Kindlon and Thompson, boys lack the ability to understand and express emotions productively because of the stress imposed by masculine gender roles. Cover goes over issues such as sexual assault and how it can be partially explained by a hypermasculinity. A theory of "masculinity in crisis" has emerged;   Australian archeologist Peter McAllister said, "I have a strong feeling that masculinity is in crisis.
Men are really searching for a role in modern society; the things we used to do aren't in much demand anymore". Deindustrialization and the replacement of smokestack industries by technology have allowed more women to enter the labor force, reducing its emphasis on physical strength. The crisis has also been attributed to the questioning of male dominance and rights granted to men solely on the basis of sex following the feminist movement. According to John Beynon, masculinity and men are often conflated and it is unclear whether masculinity, men or both are in crisis.
He writes that the "crisis" is not a recent phenomenon, illustrating several periods of masculine crisis throughout history some predating the women's movement and post-industrial society , suggesting that due to masculinity's fluid nature "crisis is constitutive of masculinity itself". In , the word "herbivore men" became popular in Japan and was reported worldwide. Herbivore men refers to young Japanese men who naturally detach themselves from masculinity.
Masahiro Morioka characterizes them as men 1 having gentle nature, 2 not bound by manliness, 3 not aggressive when it comes to romance, 4 viewing women as equals, and 5 hating emotional pain. Herbivore men are severely criticized by men who love masculinity. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. For other uses, see Masculine disambiguation.
