Eastly's insight:
Men are conditioned by the media to be violent and hypermasculine. That issues are to be solved with their fists and weapons rather than their words. If we pay attention to men in the media, masculinity is tied to how strong and macho one is. If strength and having a perfect body is what is valued, there is no wonder why real men strive for these unattainable goals.
