What is a real man? Is it a strong man, rich man, or a successful man? The answer is the man who is violent, sexual, powerful, and emotionless. The real man must fit all the rules of the “man box”. In the American’s culture, men should follow the rules of the “man box”. Does the “man box” really help men? They thought this is only way being a real man. However, I think there are some different ways to be a real man, and the man box is negative effect to man. This is because of the pressure from the “man box”. Generally speaking, men are strong, rational, and confident; with the demands of the “man box”, men could improve themselves. In some cases, some men are weak, emotional, and no confident. For them, the “man box” is a negative effect instead of positive encouragement, and even could become a reason of suicide. Through the fact of the society, “male suicide rate in UK discovered to be 3 ½ times that of women. That fact proves that once a man find he is out of the “man box”, he is afraid of hear comments of “pussy, a girl, loser, and fag. He would choose the easiest way to take out the pressure, which is to suicide. In conclusion, the “man box” is not great rules to educate the young boy, it has positive and negative both effects.
