Are shaming tactics necessary to force men to meet the standards of a real man?

Without it you really can't do much as they would comfortably live in their comfort zone without acting like strong and tough. So aren't shaming tactics good since the intention is to improve men?

    That works for a few, but far from all.

    Should we use shaming to make sure that women take care of children from conception to adulthood?

    How about to make sure that they are sexually exclusive?

    How about to make sure that they are perfect hostesses, keep the peace and make sure they put everybody else's happiness above theirs?

    EXCELLENT!

    Men already go through this with other men growing up, it's called conditioning, and all men go through it one way or another.

    Sorry but why do you jump to the conclusion that shaming tactics should only be used on men?  Sorry but shaming tactics are necessary to force social behavior, regardless of whether we're talking about men or women.

    When someone coughs or sneezes without taking any precautions to cover up and protect other members of the public, they deserve to be shamed.  Once might be a mistake, but beyond that they should be shamed into either complying with a legitimate social standard of keeping their germs to themselves...or not being in public areas until they can.  THAT is an example of when shame can be used with legitimacy.

    "Improve men?"  A "strong" and "tough" man would tell you where you can stick your ideas about how to improve him because he's not living for YOUR approval...he's just trying to live his best life in a world where increasingly, the deck is stacked against him!

    The most important thing "a real man" does is provide for his children and we have laws in place to make sure that happens when it's possible. Shaming anyone usually results in a backlash and those are often messy.

      Ironic isn't it that "the most important thing a real man does is provide for his children and we have laws in place to make sure that happens" at the same time that "pro-abortion" groups have managed to convince people that abortion should be permitted right up until the moment of birth!

    Some guys do need pressure to man up. We had a guy friend who was quiet and this other guy wanted to fight him after school but he wouldn't agree to fight and people were mocking him. We had to give him the confidence to fight and then they did have it out. It was a good fight but he lost.

      But in fairness, every fight between boys I saw in school...there were usually girls behind the scenes who had a hand in instigating it!  Girl wanting her current bf to beat up either a boy who she felt disrespected by, or her ex-bf.  Fortunately most girls weren't so manipulative.

    No shaming tactics aren't ethical.  I'm not exactly sure what you mean by stating 'standards of a real man'?

    Men usually don't use shaming tactics as much as women, it's only for the weak. Women use it to attack superior men by exploiting the mental aspect of it. Anyways shaming tactics are bad no matter what even if it is used by men with whatever good intentions in mind.

    Sometimes yes but in general it's a horrible thing to do. I don't use shaming tactics myself. I consider it to be a cowardly behavior. I will go ahead and tell the person what's wrong with them instead.
