i think a focus on masculinities, rather than masculinity, is important. it provides plurality and diversity that allows for contradiction within the grouping: it is possible to claim masculinity while still being markedly different from, or even a polar opposite to, others that lay claim to that commonality. it also breaks up overarching concepts of what it means to be a man, allowing participants greater freedom for individuality, as well as helping to fracture stereotypes and oppressive expectations
