Abstract

Masculinity

“The fear of the feminine helps define what is masculine†(Blazina).

Masculinity is basically a construct. Though this concept is usually understood and constructed on physiological attributes, in reality masculinity is a psychological aspect. Masculinity does not need to be always defined as, a male being a macho or a stud with masculine, virile and vigorous body indulging in violent activities. The Indian history and mythology abundantly represent various shades of masculinity. Masculinity is also related to culture and religion on the basis of which it is constructed. Some of the discussions below define masculinity.
