Macho Men Are The Only Real Men

959 words - 4 pages

In today’s society, many people have come to accept the fact that women can do everything that man can do. It is now acceptable for women to be “manly” without losing their womanhood. The question is: if the image about women only being feminine has changed, how come men are still pressured to only be masculine? Are “macho” men the only “real” men? Does it take a strong jaw-line, defined and muscular abs, and a beer in one hand to be considered a “true” man? Today’s world has summed up men to be just that… In order to be considered real men, they can’t wear the color pink, drink diet soda, do housework, drink fruity-flavored alcoholic drinks, or be anything less than a sports-loving, ...view middle of the document...

Over the image are the words “Vodka flavored vodka. For men.” Once again, this ad not only discriminates against women, but also gives men the idea that, since “vodka flavored vodka” is for men, then any vodka that is flavored at all is therefore for women.

They would be in the same category as those who “can’t” drink “vodka-flavored vodka”: women. At the bottom of the ad, in smaller letters, it says: “Rise and conquer”.

But what if a man isn’t one to go and “conquer” new things? What if a man prefers his vodka to be blueberry-flavored vodka? Do these things make him less of a man? Is he even considered a “real” man anymore? Today’s society sometimes makes people be unsure about the answers to those questions.
Many things in today’s media world represent men in a certain way; they are represented in a way that only a percentage of men fit that representation. Where does that leave the rest of the men in the world? Is it that, just because a man doesn’t have hair on his chest like the man in the ad, he is not a real man? Maybe it is that if a man has soft hands, he has no sense of masculinity? How about if a man enjoys...
