Drinking Beer! Fixing stuff! Destroying stuff! Drinking beer while destroying stuff! These are the things that make real men what they are...right? Well no, obviously. But that doesn't stop people - and brands in particular - having some pretty warped ideas about what exactly it means to be a man. Check out this list compiled by Bored Panda to see what we mean. People have been using the hashtags #FRAGILEMASCULINITY and #Masculinitysofragile to highlight how absurd traditional perceptions of masculinity can be, and it's sure to make you smile. Unless you're too manly to smile that is. Grr.

It is interesting though how we attribute gender-attributes also to animals. I guess most people would even find several breeds of dogs to be rather male while others are rather female.

I see this as a way to be "safe" in case the other person doesn't share your feelings. I used to play this type of stuff in grade school.

Everybody looked at me weird when I bought a hairbrush to brush my longish hair to school. I don't understand why masculinity is so fragile. I'm apparently gay because I show lotsa feelings, compliment my friends, act kind to people, not have 50000000 social media accounts, share a lot, and have long hair. Why did men and young adults change so horribly?

I don't think this is "fragile" masculinity. Maybe men don't want to use something pink that smells like angel farts. Does it even say man? Maybe women want to be bad ass. I WANT TO SMELL LIKE VICTORY!
