The Fragile Male

Here's some excellent work from the British Medical Journal about boys and masculinity, as this essay by Sebastian Kraemer tells us: "A typical attitude to boys is that they are, or must be made, more resilient than girls. This adds social insult to biological injury." He explores the basis of this vulnerability in greater detail in the essay, which you may read by clicking here. Also, be sure to send Sebastian an e-mail telling him how you much you hope he'll continue to do research on boys and masculinity since it gives men's issues some much needed credibility, and to put it simply, without scientific studies to back up our issues, we will not gain public support unless we can demonstrate some proof of our claims. So be sure to send him some praise and encouragement.
