    Masculinity is the possession of the qualities traditionally associated with men. Men have an unspoken privilege in America and other countries. Xyfeminist.com listed male privileges and a few that stood out were the privilege of violence, to make rules, womanizing, not being judged, and physical strength. These privileges are attached to the male persona and are given to men by the society at hand.

  • The Mask You Live In Film Analysis

    Personally, I found the film The Mask You Live In very eye opening.
