''Man Box'': A False Advertisement?

Wow, the “man box” plays such a huge role in society. Why does it lead to negative thinking though? This so called “man box” is not your best option to look towards in life in my opinion. It’s just creating crimes, deaths and all in all negativity scenarios. When will men break out of the ‘man box’? Unfortunately, we may never know, but I hope it comes to an end someday. This box of words that is basically saying what men should be is creating a lot of violence in our society. Men can’t be fags, pussies, weak and so on according to this box. Why is this box telling or demonstrating to men what they should and should not be anyway? It doesn’t matter what men are going to be, every men have a different character, different feelings and also different mentality.
I don’t understand why this box is controlling men’s brain and basically powering them. I find that to be really absurd and stupid, (excuse me for my language) that a lot of men follow this ‘man box’. It gets me really upset to see the consequences of what the box is doing to man, and also those actions that are taking place by those men just so they feel that they are accepted in the ‘man box’.
An example of a situation to be accepted in the man box, for some people who haven’t heard about the man box is, a kid punches me in the face, so do I punch back or do I just walk away? Good question: If I walk away, the next morning everybody in school will call me a pussy, if I fight back, it’s ok, maybe Il die or suffer a concussion, but at least my friends or classmates wont call me a pussy for backing out of the fight. So this ladies and gentlemen, is the ‘’Man Box’’, I know, its really sad how society relies on stuff like the man box, but how can we change those thoughts around?
