Critical Commentary

Design Statement: I selected and combined these two images to pinpoint how the toxic ideology of masculinity is produced by and produces educational systems in both Chinese and the US societies.

  • The image relfects how educational practices across two cultures serve to solidfy and legitimize masculinity.
  • This image reflects how toxic masculinity on the one hand can be constructed and, on the other hand, shapes nad reinforces the ways in which young boys are "correctly" socialized into the so-called masculine men.
