What are the roots of male violence? We can look into how males are raised in society and the gender stereotypes we inculcate them with.

Observe the list in blue.  It, and similar archetypes, dominate our social discourse and structure of our societies.  It is from many of these bedrock values patriarchy springs, and along with it, male violence.  These values are passed from parents to children and to have any hope of ending the problem of male violence the cycle must be interrupted.  I think that in some aspects our society has been proactive in reducing direct violent behaviour toward members of the family unit.  However, the use of violence to solve disputes within the family setting still exists, and is prevalent enough make the existence of well-watched violent compilations on youtube a reality.

We know that children are like little sponges and they observe almost everything that happens around them.  Here is what is disturbing about the following ‘funny’ collection of parents – usually fathers – destroying their children’s electronic toys:  What lessons are being learned in how male children are to process their anger and frustration in a reasonable pro-social manner?

 

Now, after seeing the vid (there are 4 more similar compilations?!) how can we be ever be surprised when males act the way they do?  Yes this is a gratuitous generalization, but really in what possible world is destroying someone’s stuff a reasonable course of action?  They are not listening?  Talk to them.  Do pretty much anything but rely on patriarchal domination and violence to get your point across to your child.  The behaviour a parent demonstrates now shapes the future behaviour of the child and we, desperately, as a society need to break some of the more deleterious aspects of male socialization.
