What is masculinity to you? [Survey]

By WhatIsMasculinityToYou - 2 October 2012 31

I am currently completing my honours year in the Photography & Media Arts department at the ANU School of Art. For my honours project I am exploring what masculinity is to men in 2012. I have chosen to focus on masculinity as I feel that it is an important and ever changing topic, which encompasses many areas of one’s life and personality, but does not receive enough attention.  Therefore I am asking a range of males, including you, one simple question…what is masculinity to you?

I will be using the information provided to create a character and construct photographic images using myself as the subject, which will explore various views and opinions of masculinity.

Please email your details and response to whatismasculinity@gmail.com or via private message on the What is masculinity to you? Facebook page

Anyone interested in the changing nature of masculinity should investigate the My Little Pony internet fandom. Seriously.

What is masculinity: making sure you have ANU Ethics approval before asking for people’s personal details for your research?

masculinity? go get me a beer and i’ll tell you…

an inability to consult a doctor but being a writhing mess when a mild ‘flu symptom appears; a lack of capacity to discuss anything remotely ’emotional’ but crying and hugging your mates when inebriated and telling them, ‘i love you, mate’. and taking the garbage bins out.

bloke up!

I’ll take maturity over masculinity and would look for the same traits in a woman as a man, such as self-control, disregarding shallow judgement, restraint and forethought, a yearning to accrue knowledge and practical skills, and the mastery of them.

Facial hair, saggy balls…

Yeaahhh, well maybe not all the same traits.

…and mine the minerals used to make the bike frame, and then design it, and construct the bike, and test it, and market it…

Honour, honesty, wisdom, courage, courtesy, dignity, thoughtfulness, humour, calmness, strength when required and gentleness at other times.

One or more of those attributes should see a man through most situations.

Masculinity is being a construction worker, just like the one in Village People…

Masculinity is NOT wearing jeans that look like they belong to your sister.

The more I think about it, the more I realise that the concept of “masculinity” can only really be defined as the possession of a penis and testicles. Anything else is a crock.
