The paper titled “Men in a Patriarchal Society and Issues” is a study about the problems facing by men, being in a country, which have male dominance. This is a great drawback of many developing as well as developed countries. In a patriarchal society not only women are suffering but also men do suffer greater than that of women. In such a society men is very much ashamed to raise their issues and problems, they feel themselves superior therefore they feel inferior when they open up their problem or even to cry when they become emotionally down. Patriarchal mindset never mind or care about the issue of men, because of their superiority mindset. Being a male dominant culture they never give importance to male safety and fills their psyche with confidence that “men can't be abused”. Due to this concept men hides most of the violence against them even sexual abuse or rape, and there is no law in most of the country, even in our country India to support men and their issues. This result in mental problem and short tempered nature in men and this also leads to increase in substance use among men's. This clears the path of some people who promote sexual abuse and they use boys mostly teenagers as a sexual tool. Thus boys have to face forcible kissing, forcible sex, exposure to pornographic content, obscene photography, may be by their relatives or friend. This kind of friendship or life which lead him to a criminal or a violent men who suppress women and this attitude may destroy his life. The superior kind of attitude in men never accept women, their thoughts, values and never respect them, they tries to expose their power over women. They also get annoyed when they hear the word feminism or women oriented programs etc. They never likes to give opportunities for women and they consider and rise up the idea of ideal wife and that may ends up with family issues. The men superiority culture leads to greater gender inequality or anti-feministic society and they never understand continuing in a patriarchal society effect themselves than women in such a society
