Summary of "Traditional Masculinity: A Review of Toxicity Rooted in Social Norms and Gender Socialization."

The toxicity of traditional masculinity has become a heated topic of mainstream media debate since the American Psychological Association's release of psychological treatment guidelines for men and boys. To recognize how traditional masculinity is toxic, there needs to be greater understanding of the social norms and gender socialization behind traditional masculinity. Gender-based social norms and gender socialization have had dire consequences on how men behave, act in relationships, and care for their health. There is a need to reform the perception of masculinity in the contemporary social climate. Supplemental digital content Abstract is available at http://links.lww.com/ANS/A17.
