Nah, I think the author of the thread knew exactly what he meant and expressed his thoughts concisely.

yeah... well not in my back yard ok?

or in public places for that matter, Christ man show some logical and rational sensibilities toward the children would ya?

whatever floats their boat man I could care less, until it shows itself in front of my children's eyes... then we'll have a problem.

explore your masculinity behind closed doors and on private property!

PS; this is a public forum, you are in public.

An interesting debate above.

I just feel that if men want to enjoy their rights in an equal gender system it's important for them to become acquainted with terms like "masculinity" and how it differs from "sexuality" (happily some are already).

Wikipedia has a good entry on masculinity, but I rather won't link due to the nudity.

Of course sexuality can be a part of it, and many men probably consider success with women, and not being misread as "gay" or effeminate as important.
That's fine.
Gay men also perform masculinity, and even many women have masculine attributes.
Gender studies would look at how various ethnicities perform peculiar forms of masculinity, and how they are stereotyped in film, music and advertising (for example the "tough guise" in various gangs and street cultures).

Some would say that masculinity is in crisis, especially when men can not always live up to social expectations, for example of being independent and a provider.
Erstwhile positively valued masculine attributes like courage, team-work, camaraderie or stoicism can also be deeply mocked, and men can often be left feeling confused and defensive.

The specifics of masculinity can mean different to different folks, and that's what I wanted to explore, and also celebrate a little.

Masculinity is about social roles and is hence a public matter.

All the clips so far are widely known popular songs (some of them actually classic and historic).
Unless they're living in a cult compound, there's no way that children won't be exposed to any of it.
OK, the gender parody from Cabaret is slightly racy, but the musical has been performed in school halls.

Ironically yours is the most explicit clip so far.
I don't mind, but I don't call the shots.

ATS has members from all backgrounds and social groups, and there's no way any group can be segregated from any thread.

If you feel my thread or any of the clips are against the T&C you're welcome to contact the mods.

So far I've enjoyed all the clips, and also the diversity of different cultures.

Motley Crue - Smoking in the Boy's room.

The song always reminds me of the game of cat-and-mouse regarding cigarette smoking between some of the male teachers and pupils in high school.

I'm not sure if it was only a male issue, but the taboo against girls smoking was still quite strong socially, and I don't recall seeing girls smoking until much later.
For some of the rebellious males it was virtually expected, although the punishments seemed rather hypocritical, since most of the male teachers smoked, and the tobacco smoke would waft out of the staff room during break-time.
It was very much a case of "do what I say; not what I do" having no effect.

Sadly the connection legal tobacco advertising back then made between masculinity and smoking meant that a dare could lead to a lifetime of addiction for some, although I think that for adults there are worse vices than having a cigarette in an appropriate spot.
Luckily many have also managed to stop completely since then, which I also think is fantastic for their health.
It's hard to try and get fit again later in life if you can't breathe properly.

The narrative follows an older brother who is in prison after defending his younger brother from police brutality in Britain, and explains what happened to their mother in the Caribbean.
