Men don’t have it all either Posted on May 14, 2013 by Dr. Naomi Great examples of how gendered norms are restricting men from one of my favorite writers, LZ Granderson.
Many men are told to be tough, man up, work hard, be the providers, and still look good. There are so many pressures on physical appearance and how men are suppose to act and look good at the same time. There is this stigma that men have to look like actors but still be tough and manly. This clip shows “perfection” by Shaquille O’Neil trying to persuade guys to “man up” and use this particular lotion created for men. This gives the example of the imperfection and pressures men have as well. No one is perfect and men are no exception to this.
