The feminization of men leads to a rise in homophobia

Before the feminist revolution, men built their masculinity on traits that opposed those assigned to women. Since then, men can no longer rely on this anti-feminine norm. What are the effects of this shift on masculinity affirmation? Researchers (UNIGE) have revealed that some men assert their manhood by stressing their heterosexuality, in order to compensate for this feminisation of men. This move marks a rejection of homosexuality, seen as the personification of the feminine man.

In short, I review clinical research on an almost daily basis. What I post tends to be articles that are relevant to the readers in addition to some curiosities that have intriguing potential. As a hobby, I truly enjoy the puzzle-solving play that statistics and programming as in the python language bring to the table. I just do not enjoy problem-solving, I love problem-solving and the childlike inspiration and exploration of that innocent exhilaration of discovering something new. Enjoy ;-)
