Google and Male Stereotypes

What are the 100 dumbest Google questions about male stereotypes?

  1. Are men and women equal
  2. Are men stronger than women
  3. Are men better than women
  4. Can men and women be friends
  5. Can men be feminists
  6. Is a man allowed to hit a woman

  8. Is a man crying a sign of weakness
  9. Is a man cheating
  10. Is a man happy if he cheats

Are any of these questions shocking to read?

Unlikely, but it's mind blowing how sex stereotypes from 40-60 years ago still apply today. Society wants men to "man up", be strong, cheat happily, and be superior to women.

Men and Money

Here we have a few fair questions about males paying for dates and supporting women financially.

So why are they viewed as "Dumb Google Questions"?

The problem is that they continue to support labels regarding masculinity. If we want to support equality and see ourselves as human beings, then there shouldn't be any labels regarding gender roles.

People shouldn't be restrained and looked down upon because they want equality, however; many of those search queries do just that.

Sex Equality

Ah so many commonalities are appearing with each new question. We have the "opening the door for a woman argument" and the "men assumed to be the main providers" statement.

Opening and holding the door for anyone is a nice gesture and shows courtesy, but herein lies the problem. Why should a man only be doing this for a woman and why can't it be the other way around.

And what's the deal with male dominance...

Yes men should be providers but so could women; it's how society should work but people don't see it that way yet.

Definition of "Being Male"

There's a multitude of entries about men and babies and how a man should act. The questions about babies are dumb and uneducated. They're dumb from a medical and social standpoint.

If someone asked me what it meant to be a man based on Google queries, then I would say that men can't be emotional, can only be tough, and never do anything "unmanly" otherwise they'd be called gay.

So sorry guys I guess getting pedicures and being sensitive is out.

The World's Strongest Man

Google says men have to be super strong no matter what. They must learn how to kill a massive animal with their bare hands and never be a victim.

Another question is "Can a man really change", which I'll respond rhetorically with "Can society really change". Our views on men remain pretty straight forward despite global social changes.

No matter how equal people say we are, there are things ingrained in our brains from childhood regarding each gender. Google has confirmed what I assumed about strength and dominance for the average male.

Do Men Cheat More Than Women?

Talk about a hot Google topic!

When looking through the search engines about male stereotypes, the topic of cheating came out on top.

Does everyone automatically assume that all men are cheaters? Well I can tell you that online it would definitely seem that way.

There are multiple variations on the whole affair (no pun intended), and you'll have to see it for yourself or else take my word for it according to the questions that came up.

Oh and for all purposes men do cheat more than women, but the statistics remain vague and transparent on the issue.

Man Up! Act Like a Man

God forbid a man carries a bag or helps out with the housework. He should be the head of the household and always be fixing something with tools right?

I'm actually surprised more common male stereotypes didn't show up on Google, but I'm not complaining. Perhaps we have moved forward somewhat since the 1950's (one can wish).

However the struggles of being a man and acting like a man continue to haunt the male species. They are still told to man up at the very slight hint of weakness and non-masculine (feminine) behavior.

Women still have it much tougher over the world, but it's definitely not easy being a boy in today's culture. One can argue that growing young boys have it even tougher because of the societal pressures being placed on them.

Often if they fail to live up to the stereotypes, then the world says they fail at "being male" and then what are they going to do (to be).

And finally what does that say about us?

Your Turn!

      Good job introducing the seldom-acknowledge truth that men also face stereotypes. Great hub!

      Thank you very much. Yes it's often an ignored subject but should be equally as important.

      These are really "dumb" questions that I have trouble understanding why anyone would have to ask most of them. The trouble is that these are popular "Google" search questions. Hub Pages and other similar sites are always trying to attract more Google traffic....it's a worry that to do this are we expected to write hubs that answer all these types of questions? The Google Gods must be crazy!

      I mean technically you could use some of these questions and make hubs around them. Some of these questions are so out there that I don't know how you can even begin to generate Google traffic by writing hubs for them, but I guess it depends on the writer and how strong their technical skills are.
