Tough Guise is a documentary about how the media constructs how the male masculinity is formed and how it is to be a man in our society today. The man speaking throughout this film is discussing how there is a crisis in today's masculinity. Arguing there exist a crisis in today's masculinity and how everything that bad usually happens is because a man did it. The media advertises and portrays how men should act, but often how men are portrayed in the media are of violence acts and the degrading of women. Some of the examples in the film included WWE wrestling, going to a school and asking students what they would be called if not acting tough such as soft, fag etc. Music from such artists boys from the hood shows African males acting like thugs and getting money is how boys should act. Another part of the film it showed how all students that shot up a school were men. But in the media it would never say men is responsible for all the negative things that happen in the world such as war. If women were in charge I really doubt there would be so much violence in the world. To my conclusion it's not only the media and video games that shape boys but everyday society. Violence seems to be a normal everyday thing that happens all around us and it's a normal masculinity for men. This video enlightened me to rethink my own participation in masculinity.
