Masculinity is only skin deep

In the Western world there is a lot of talk about how society pressures women to conform to narrowly defined gender roles, but we rarely talk about the rigid norms that the male half of the population is expected to live up to. THE MASK YOU LIVE IN is an exploration of the masculine ideals that permeate American society, and while demonstrating how these form the foundation of everything from professional sports to school shootings. What do we really expect to happen when sad, frustrated and angry men are routinely told to suck it up and "be a man"?
