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 or via private message on the What is masculinity to you? Facebook page

You should be brave enough to carry the spider outside! This is one practical thing that even I can do.

Actually, I don’t whack them, I take them outside and start singing the title track of Born Free.

Masculinity is a slave to the monster they call testosterone which women both love and hate!

How will you know the responses are from men – for an honours level research project? Won’t your supervisors be askin’?

Choking on one of your ladies short and curlies without breaking stride.

(Beers in the shower, hanging towels off your genitals, making hearty grunts when something pleases you and mighty beards that would shame Odin himself.)

Maybe we should also be asking what femininity means.

It would be pretty sad if we could define the difference.

Men…Can’t live with them, can’t live without them. Someone has to pump up the bike tyres.

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

I didn’t know Gina Rinehart contributed to RiotACT…
Men! No sense of humour…(-:

It wasn’t in the form of a horrible poem, so it must have been one of her astroturfers, not her.
