How to use masculinity in a sentence?

  1. Nancy Hogshead-Makar:

    This connection with sports and masculinity is a very tough nut to crack. People have been trying to crack it for a long time.

  2. Dave Llewellyn:

    We talk about sexting, messaging and using social media because they are all very common among British teenagers and a prominent part of culture in schools, the workshops started as a safe space for guys at university to discuss issues of gender and sex, and we are now working with teenagers who are exploring their masculinity and sexuality.

  3. Nakhane Toure:

    There's no homogenous idea of what masculinity is, there never was, and there never will be.

  4. Andrea Dworkin:

    In this society, the norm of masculinity is phallic aggression. Male sexuality is, by definition, intensely and rigidly phallic. A man's identity is located in his conception of himself as the possessor of a phallus; a man's worth is located in his pride in phallic identity. The main characteristic of phallic identity is that worth is entirely contingent on the possession of a phallus. Since men have no other criteria for worth, no other notion of identity, those who do not have phalluses are not recognized as fully human.

  5. Charisse Pasche:

    The best thing that you can do is start off with one product and perfect that, focus on that and not have too much inventory, what we want to be known for is our denim, and once we’ve created a base, there are lots of other things that we want to have that fit a female body but present masculinity.
