A redefinition is in order. It is time we finally addressed these issues, looked after the mental health of future generations of young men and ditched these limiting, archaic stereotypes. Only then can we implement positive societal change and proactively reduce rates of bullying and crime, as we now know these to be interlinked.
Ditch the Label research, which found males to be the most likely to act as an aggressor of bullying behaviours, females were found to be the largest perpetrators of misogynistic language on the social network, with 52% of all misogynistic tweets authored by women. This discovery warrants further exploration into the ways in which women engage with each other in both online and offline environments.
