Buzzfeed Asks, ‘What Makes You A Man?’

By 07.29.14


This is one of those well-meaning videos from Buzzfeed that I feel like is made to spark heated discussion in a freshman Gender Studies 101 course. I think most emotionally stable human beings believe that manliness and masculinity are social constructs built on a series of character traits like courage, confidence, dignity, passion, kindness, honesty, etc. It’s not as simple as driving a lifted truck or able to bench XYZ or punch someone in the face.

Since the video exists to encourage discussion, let’s do some motherfucking discussion: What makes someone a man? Is it just as simple as “having a dick” (…in the words of the YouTube commenters) or is it something more esoteric?
