Jan 11 - Traditional masculinity’ deemed ‘harmful’ by American Psychological a.ssociation

A new 36-page report from the American Psychological a.ssociation spotlights the organization’s first official warning against what some call toxic masculinity.

The document, titled “APA Guidelines for the Psychological Practice with Boys and Men” was featured in the January issue of its magazine, Monitor on Psychology. Its aim is to help providers with male patients “despite social forces that can harm mental health.”


Developed by several experts between 2005-2018, the guidelines are aspirational “statements that suggest or recommend specific professional behavior, endeavor, or conduct for psychologists” and differ from standards, which are considered “mandatory and may be accompanied by an enforcement mechanism,” according to the report.

One of its primary guidelines warns against the “masculinity ideology.”

Traditional masculinity, as the APA defines it, refers to masculinity cognitions “that have held sway over large segments of the population, including: anti-femininity, achievement, eschewal of the appearance of weakness, and adventure, risk, and violence.” These behaviors are often influenced by social, cultural and contextual norms, whether that’s socialization by friends, imitating parent behavior or adopting media portrayals.

Researchers say conforming to such traditional masculinity may limit males’ psychological development, negatively influence mental health and result in gender role conflict, all of which have been addressed in previous research. For example, studies have shown boys are disproportionately more likely to have learning difficulties and behavior problems in school — and men, overrepresented in prisons, are more likely than women to commit violent crimes or be a victim of violent crime.


The ideology has been linked to physical health problems as well, including cardiovascular issues, substance abuse and early mortality, not to mention general quality-of-life issues. A groundbreaking World Health Organization study in 2017 found exposure to rigid gender norms can be established in children by age 10 or 11 and increases boys’ chance of depression and suicide. Overall, males are four times more likely to die from suicide than females.

Pseudoscience

Very little empiricism in psychology, it’s a joke science unless you’re using it on animals

Even further stoicism is viewed in this study as a negative quality

There's nothing "traditional" about toxic masculinity, which is what this article is referring to

Do they not take in natural factors of evolution like only the strong survive, how opposite genders subconsciously evaluate potential partners, etc?

Masculinity that doesn't have the entitlement and emotional suppression elements that old school masculinity had is quite healthy. Not too surprised at this conclusion. Having older men drop dead from a heart attack at 55 b/c they never constructively bore their emotions and carried stress for decades is a telling sign

Actually I think that traditional masculinity had the more toxic traits. Modern masculinity is much more flexible.

Because men from fatherless homes learn how to be a man from the wrong sources. You kinda answered your own question. Boys need good men in their lives to show them the way.

It is... It's fawked up. Women arent more than accessories. I can't imagine being one. They have some power but no strength in this world. There isn't equilibrium though and it's better than the alternative, which we soon shall see...

its true... 99% of the atrocities in this world came about from toxic masculinity. imagine if people actually calmly tried to talk through problems, instead of having to resort to a f!ght, war, abuse, etc
