I thought this video closely relates to our reading on Masculinities. It answered a few questions of why we as men we follow a certain patter that the media, friends, co-workers etc. think we must follow. This content was able to answer some of those questions that I had as far as why we all follow a certain guy code. From example I was raised with the same way that our reading depicted what we equated manhood to bee. I was raised to be strong under any circumstance, to always reach and work toward success, that I had to be capable and reliable under extreme pressure or stress and that I always had to be in control. This reading actually helped me answer why I was thought to think like that from a young age, but I never knew why this inherited mind set was passed down to me and almost every other male I know. This guy code video helped me place these thoughts into a specific patter of why we think the way we do and why we act the way we do. The whole image of masculinity to me has always been to be a strong source of support and always be the reliable man that I was raised to be. This video however helped me understand why I viewed myself as that person. Our culture made me think and my family think this way, as an individual man we are taught to be string and self-dependent, but when we are in a group or with a mate we are thought to rely on each other and support each other which is totally different than relying on yourself. With this reading and this video I think I can now answer a few questions of why society made us think and act the way we thought we had to act.
