1) Violent Masculinity -The documentary “Tough Guise” by Jackson Katz, introduces the idea that strength, power and violence are male characteristics that are influenced by the media. -Seen through the roles of cowboys, gangsters and athletes, forced males, especially marginalized ethnic populations who have difficult time fitting into society, to adopt a “mask of invulnerability”. -This mask removes any emotional attributes associated with femininity, also socially constructed that would make the male seem any less powerful. -Michael Moore identifies the implications of such a mask in his comical journal, “The End of Men”, including violent acts such as road rage, in which the male must reveal his aggression to resolve problems.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
