Society has placed such a high value on masculinity that it has allowed hyper-masculinity to thrive. As a major facet of hyper-masculinity is the fear of sharing even the slightest bit of non-intimate closeness with other men at the fear of being labeled, many men have been boxed in the way they relate to their peers. In order to raise better, kinder men, the walls of masculinity and what it is to be a “man” must come down.
