How Sexism harms men’s mental health ?

Sexism is not good for mental health. According to an American study, men who see themselves as playboys or as having power over women are more likely to have psychological problems.

 

The relationship between mental health and Sexism compliance with the 11 criteria generally reflecting society’s expectations of “virility”:

The desire to win,

The need for emotional control,

Risk-taking,

Violence,

The spirit of superiority,

Sexual promiscuity (the playboy),

Independence,

The primacy given to her work,

Power over women,

Disdain for homosexuality

Social Elevation.

 

The three main types of mental health are: poor mental health (eg, depression), good mental health (eg, life satisfaction), and seeking psychological help.

 

In general, men who conformed to very male norms tended to have poor mental health and were less likely to seek psychological help, although the results differed according to the specific types of these attitudes.



Overall, the link between “male traits” and poor mental health was even more marked with three behaviors: independence, playboy behavior and power over women. The masculine norms of playboy and power over women are the criteria most closely associated with sexist attitudes. The association of these two behaviors with poor mental health emphasizes the idea that sexism is not only a social injustice, but can also have a detrimental effect on the mental health of those who embrace such attitudes. These men are much less likely to seek treatment for their mental health.

 

Only priority given to work has not shown any significant impact on mental health. Perhaps this is a reflection of the complexity of work and its implications for well-being. Excessive focus on work can be detrimental to health and interpersonal relationships, but it gives meaning to life to many people.

Finally, risk-taking was significantly associated with positive and negative outcomes on mental health, thus revealing the opposite consequences.
