This article analyzes the effects of the increase in men’s studies, an approach to the question of gender that tends to undermine and pluralize the hegemonic version of masculine identity construction. This identity lies behind certain sexist ideas and behavior patterns, including violence against women. In order to explore this issue it is necessary to carry out a critical analysis of what has been abeled as the modern stereotype of masculinity, pointing out its negative effects on women and even on some men. It also negatively influences the men that reproduce the model, since thestereotype can, while generating masculine privileges, also be a source of pain for men. Finally, we propose that the rhetorical tradition of politics constitutes a satisfactory approach to this issue.
