Sexism Harms Men's Health
I have always had the belief (and seen it play itself out) that sexism harms men, too. But the way I've seen it play out is that it keeps some men from forming truly close relationships with women, even their partners. I've seen it keep men from having truly close friendships with other men. I've seen it keep other men from being they really are - people with full emotional lives. There are myriad ways that sexism harms men. But now a study finds that sexism can be linked to men's shorter life span than woman. Is this another version of "you reap what you sow"?
