Touching

touching

2023. Under the cover of the hot tub water, the touching begins.

The act of men touching other men can often be perceived as displaying intimacy or homosexuality, especially in cultures where physical touch between men is stigmatized or frowned upon.

Men can use physical touch to convey their masculinity and to establish dominance, particularly in all-male settings such as sports, fraternity houses, and military units. Men’s touching behavior can competitive and aggressive, with individuals attempting to assert their power and hierarchical position in the group. This is often in the form of roughhousing or playful teasing, although it may occasionally escalate to more violent physical encounters.

However, there is another side to men’s touching behavior that is less understood. Men who form strong emotional bonds with one another are more likely to engage in non-sexual intimate behavior, such as hugging or cuddling. Psychologically, these behaviors can provide a source of emotional support and comfort, particularly in high-stress situations or during times of crisis.

The feelings connected to men’s touching behavior are varied and complex. In some cases, physical touch between men is a way to display masculine power and assert dominance over others. Certain men enjoy dominating other men and part of why this is true has much to do with the pleasures men feel during acts of dominating other men. In other cases, touching of men by other men is used to establish emotional connections and provide comfort and support in times of need. The context in which the touch takes place, as well as the cultural norms and attitudes of those involved, play an important role in shaping the meaning and significance of men’s physical interaction.

Men’s touching behavior is a complex and multifaceted aspect of human interaction. It can be both aggressive and tender, competitive and supportive, depending on the situation and the individuals involved. Those who stigmatize or judge men’s touching behavior are in the wrong. The right approach is to seek to understand men touching men is a natural expression of human emotion and connection.

Indigenous Warriors Death Dancing

2023. The provocative simultaneous hanging of 38 men who were Dakota (Sioux) warriors took place on the day after Christmas in 1862. This original 3D illustration is my fictionalized tribute to those indigenous men in Minnesota who died together on that day. Proponents of white supremacy choose to deny and disregard what was the largest military mass execution in American history. Let them deny and disregard, but they reveal their blindness by doing so. The attempts for a century and a half to erase this from history have largely been overcome by the persistence of those who want the truth to be known no matter how unpleasant it may be. This terrifying incident is all the more shocking because the hanging of these 38 indigenous men who were defending their tribe and territory took place on a specially-constructed gallows which was officially approved in Washington, DC by none other than President Abraham Lincoln, himself.

Some may mistakenly think this is fiction, but it is real life. The Wild West of America in the late 19th century was a time of real-life lawlessness. Hollywood movies persuaded many people to believe the Wild West was macho and fun because of bolstering masculinity and conquest. In reality, however, cowboys rode freely across the prairies often with little regard for anything or anyone but themselves. Gunfights were an everyday occurrence. Killings with guns was common. This was also a time when Native American Indians were subjected to terrible injustices at the hands of cowboys and others who came to what had been native lands which were populated by indigenous people.

For centuries, Native American Indians had been living in the vast open spaces of North America long before the arrival of European settlers. Their way of life was very different from that of the settlers, which was mainly focused on agriculture, and the two groups coexisted in relative peace.

However, as the settlers began to move westward in search of land and minerals, they encroached on Native American land and began to change the ecosystem with widespread deforestation and hunting. This caused a rift between the two groups that would not soon be mended.

The cowboys were a new breed of American settlers that emerged during the Wild West days. They roamed the countryside in search of adventure and fortune, often leading cattle drives across vast distances. While some cowboys were peaceful and respectful of Native American culture, others were very antagonistic and saw the Native Americans as an obstacle to their progress.

Many of the cowboys saw the Native Americans as primitive savages and had little respect for their way of life. They would often mock them, abuse them, and even kill them for no apparent reason. Cowboys would get away with killing Native Americans because in those days, Native Americans were not considered as significant as people of European ancestry. Many Native Americans felt compelled to flee their homes and retreat deeper into the wilderness to escape violence, death and destruction.

One of the most infamous events during this time was the Battle of Little Bighorn in 1876, where General George Custer’s forces were defeated by a coalition of Native American tribes led by the famous warrior whose name was Crazy Horse. Though often portrayed as a heroic struggle between savage Indians and brave soldiers, it was in fact a battle over land rights that ended tragically for both sides. Greed so often leads to violence and death. This was a classic example of that outcome.

The violence between cowboys and Native Americans continued for many years, with many more battles, massacres, and injustices inflicted on the Indians. The cowboys eventually faded away, replaced by new technologies such as railroads and automobiles, but the legacy of their abuse of the Native Americans remains.

In the present day there is a growing awareness of the suffering that Native Americans endured during the Wild West days, and many steps are being taken to remedy past injustices. Nevertheless, the scars run deep, and the memory of the torment inflicted by the cowboys on the Native American Indians will never be easily forgotten.

Riders

2023. Three riders, one horse.

Masculinity and horse riding are often closely linked, with the image of a rugged cowboy astride his trusty steed serving as a cultural shorthand for rugged masculinity. But why does horse riding seem to have such a powerful impact on our perception of masculinity, and how did cowboys help to set these feelings into action?

Part of the appeal of horse riding comes down to the physical challenges it presents. Riding a horse requires strength, balance, and coordination, and mastering the art of horseback riding requires both physical and mental discipline. In many ways, this can be seen as a symbolic representation of the challenges that men face in their everyday lives; by showing that they can control something as powerful and unpredictable as a horse, men are able to demonstrate their strength and confidence in a very tangible way.

At the same time, there is also an element of tradition and history at play. For centuries, horses were an essential part of life for many cultures around the world, helping to facilitate trade, transport, and warfare. In many of these cultures, the skill of horsemanship was seen as a key indicator of a man’s worthiness and status. For example, in medieval Europe, knights were expected to be skilled horsemen as well as skilled warriors, while in many Native American tribes, the ability to ride a horse was a crucial part of male identity.

The image of the cowboy riding the range has similarly become entrenched in our cultural consciousness as a symbol of rugged masculinity. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, cowboys were seen as rough-and-tumble individuals who lived by their own rules and answered to no one. This was a time of rapid change and industrialization in the United States, and the cowboy mythos helped to counterbalance the sense of order and conformity that was emerging in many parts of the country.

Cowboys set these feelings into action by embodying the ideal of masculine self-sufficiency and independence. They were men who were at home in nature, not afraid to get their hands dirty, and able to handle anything that came their way. They felt comfortable being around animals which could easily lead to painful injury or death. By bringing this image of masculine self-sufficiency to life on the big screen, in television shows, and in popular literature, fictional cowboy characters helped to create a sense of nostalgia for a simpler, more rugged time when men were men and life was simpler. Some believe America was great back then as compared to now. Those people believe a simpler life is preferred to what we have today in the 21st century.

The link between masculinity and horse riding is a complex one, rooted in both physical challenges and cultural history. Cowboys helped to set these feelings into action by embodying the ideal of masculine self-sufficiency and independence, and their legacy has helped to cement the idea of horse riding as a powerful symbol of rugged masculinity that continues to resonate with people around the world.

Desert Warrior

desert warrior

2022. He fights to the death to protect his tribe in the desert.

Stories of men in the desert defending their territory and tribe have been told for centuries, and they continue to be popular today. There are several reasons why these stories resonate so deeply with audiences, even in modern times.

The first reason is the primal urge to protect one’s community. Humans are social animals, and we have an innate desire to protect those who are close to us. Stories of men in the desert defending their tribe tap into this primal urge and show us the importance of standing up for our community, no matter the cost.

Secondly, these stories highlight the struggle between good and evil. The desert is often used as a metaphor for a harsh and unforgiving environment, and the men who defend their tribe are seen as heroes who are willing to face these challenges head-on. They are often up against formidable foes, such as invading armies or rival tribes, and their bravery in the face of such adversity makes them all the more inspiring.

Another reason why these stories are so compelling is that they offer a sense of escapism. In our modern world, many of us lead sedentary lives, working desk jobs and spending much of our time indoors. Stories of men in the desert defending their territory offer a chance to imagine a different kind of life, one that is rugged, adventurous, and filled with danger and even sexual thrills.

Finally, these stories offer a sense of cultural identity and pride. Many stories of men in the desert defending their tribe are rooted in ancient traditions and beliefs, and they serve as a reminder of the rich cultural heritage of the areas where they originated. They offer a sense of connection to the past and an understanding of the values and beliefs that have shaped us as a people.

Stories of brave men in the desert who defend their territory and tribe resonate deeply with audiences for many tangible reasons. Such stories tap into our primal urge to protect our community, highlight the struggle between good and evil, offer a sense of escapism, and provide a connection to our cultural heritage. As long as humans have a desire to tell stories, these tales of bravery and heroism will continue to captivate us for generations to come.

Fate Steps in From the Shadows

fate steps in from the shadows

2022. Four rival gang members are captured trespassing where they should not have ventured. All four are used to set an example for any rival gang. The four have their wrists bound and they are made to stand together naked and vulnerable in a cold abandoned hotel room. Then, as they worry about the many possibilities which could befall them, fate steps in from the shadows.

Stories of men being attacked in groups by other men have surged in popularity, particularly in social media and news outlets. These kinds of stories often evoke feelings of heroism and masculinity among male audiences, leading them to resonate deeply with these narratives. But why does this happen? A few reasons why stories of men being attacked in groups by other men are so captivating today can be spelled out clearly:

  1. The stories reaffirm masculine identity — Men have long been socialized to embody stereotypical masculine traits such as bravery, strength, and courage. When they hear about other men demonstrating these traits in real-life situations, it reinforces the idea that masculinity is something to be proud of. These stories also tap into the idea of chivalry, where men are expected to protect others from harm, especially women and children who often are viewed as less important than men because women and children are by nature weaker physically than men. By showing a man standing up to a group of attackers, these stories reinforce the notion that men should be protectors and defenders.
  2. The stories highlight male bonding — Men often bond through shared experiences of physical activity and competition, such as playing sports or engaging in a fight. Stories of men coming together to fight off attackers tap into this sense of male camaraderie, where men stand up for each other and form a tight-knit group. This bonding helps bolster feelings of masculinity and heroism among the men involved.
  3. The stories tap into notions of justice — Men are socialized to seek justice and protect those who are vulnerable. When stories of men being attacked by groups emerge, the idea of seeking justice and taking on bullies resonates deeply with male audiences. In this context, the attackers are seen as the villains, and the men standing up against them are the heroes fighting for what is right.
  4. The stories reflect larger societal issues — Stories of men being attacked often reflect larger social issues such as violence, so-called “toxic masculinity,” and masculinity as seen through the lens of gang culture. As men become more aware of these real-life issues, man can be drawn to stories of other men standing up to these issues and addressing them head-on. In this way, these stories serve as inspiration for men to take action and make a difference in their own communities.

Stories of men being attacked in groups by other men resonate deeply today because they reinforce in a man’s mind deeply-rooted cultural and social ideals of masculinity, male bonding, justice, and societal change. By highlighting the bravery and heroism of men standing up to bullies, these stories tap into the innate desire for men to protect and defend those who are vulnerable. Moreover, such stories provide a sense of inspiration and encouragement for men to take action and make a difference in their own lives and communities.

A Body Just Oozin’ Life

a body just oozin life

2022. Now on a sidewalk, ooh Sunday mornin’, uh-huh. Lies a body just oozin’ life.

Bloody violence has been a part of storytelling since the beginning of time. Ancient tales of heroes and gods often featured violent scenes of war, battles, and fights. In modern times, bloody violence has become a staple in popular culture, from movies to video games and everything in between. The question is, why?

One reason why bloody violence is a strong core element of storytelling is that it helps to create tension and conflict. When a character engages in a violent act, they are putting themselves and others at risk, which creates a sense of danger and suspense. This tension keeps the audience engaged and invested in the story. In addition, violence can be used to show the consequences of a character’s actions. For example, if a character kills someone, it can be a pivotal moment in their story, leading to a moral dilemma or a change in character development.

However, the use of bloody violence is not without controversy. Some argue that it glorifies violence and can desensitize people to its consequences. Others argue that it is necessary to accurately portray the harsh realities of life. Regardless of one’s stance on the issue, it is clear that the use of violent imagery in storytelling is a highly effective way to create drama and tension. The use of such violent components in storytelling is not likely to fade away.

When it comes to why bloody violence in stories resonates with male audience members, there are a few theories. Some argue that men are simply more predisposed to liking violent content, while others suggest that it is a societal construct. Men are often socialized to be aggressive, dominant, and competitive, leading to a higher level of interest in violence. This is not to say that all men are inherently violent or aggressive, but rather that societal norms and expectations may influence their preferences.

Another reason why male audience members may be drawn to stories featuring bloody violence is the desire for escapism. Men may view violent content as a way to escape from their mundane lives and feel a sense of excitement and adventure. The thrill of danger and risk-taking can be appealing to some men. This desire for escapism is not exclusive to men, of course, but it may be a factor in why some men are drawn to violent storytelling.

Bloody violence is a strong core element of storytelling today that creates tension, conflict, and helps to portray the consequences of a character’s actions. While there is controversy surrounding its use, the effectiveness of violent imagery in creating drama and tension cannot be denied. The reasons why bloody violence in stories resonates with male audience members are complex and multifaceted, but may include societal expectations, a desire for escapism, and a psychological predisposition towards violence in the real world.
