Why the 'alpha male' stereotype is wrong

The cultural notion of an alpha male as a strong, mean aggressor is rampant but wrong. The reality is more complex.Frans de Waal notes two types of alpha males: Bullies and leaders. In chimpanzee society, the former terrorizes the group while the latter mediates conflict.The reign of alpha male bullies usually ends poorly in the wild. Chimpanzee bullies get expelled or even killed by their group, while leader alphas are somewhat democratically kept in power, sometimes for as long as 12 years. ...

It's time to redefine 'masculinity'

APA Guidelines for the Psychological Practice of Boys and Men represents the first time the association has published rules specifically for treating white, Western males.

Why natural disasters make men take more risks

The 2011 earthquake in Japan was among the most intense earthquakes to occur in recorded history.Thanks to regularly distributed surveys, however, it also became a unique research opportunity to compare civilians' behaviors from before the earthquake with their behavior after.Now, researchers have found data that suggests being exposed to a natural disaster tends to make men more prone to engage in risky behavior, like gambling and drinking, over the long term.

Several studies have confirmed that testosterone counts in men are lower than what they used to be just a few decades ago.While most men still have perfectly healthy testosterone levels, its reduction puts men at risk for many negative health outcomes.The cause of this drop in testosterone isn't entirely clear, but evidence suggests that it is a multifaceted result of modern, industrialized life.

Silent Sam: the mute punk singer - video

Sam is a 27 year old who is many things; a music teaching, sovereign ring wearing, chanting Buddhist. Not to mention the lead singer of an up and coming punk band. He’s also least for most of the time. After two unsuccessful vocal chord operations, Sam spends most of his time in pain and on voice rest. Yet, by communicating silently through writing notes, mouthing words and blowing kisses (one for yes and two for no), he still somehow manages to be the chattiest person in the room. But...

Many of my childhood friends are dead. Is masculinity to blame?

The blue-collar town of Kamloops has been riven by accidents, overdoses and suicides. After losing several friends, one writer returned to find out whyI grew up in Kamloops, a small blue-collar city in British Columbia about 350km north-west of Vancouver. Kamloops wasn’t the middle of nowhere, but at the time it felt pretty close. I moved there with my family when I was in grade five, and early on my fate felt sealed: I was a mediocre student, and not good enough at hockey to catch the eyes of t...

Guard Your Health

A s a young man, I often heard older people talking about their declining bodies and failing health.

They insisted that they used to be able to eat anything they wanted without ill effect, but now practically every food gave them indigestion. Whereas they once had the ability to sleep soundly under any conditions, now any unusual circumstance would keep them lying awak...

Four Ways to Help a Muslim Victim of Domestic Abuse

By Janet Kozak Data gathered by the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV) shows that one in three women and one in four men will be victims of domestic abuse at some point during their lifetimes.
