Cultural messages imply that “real men” can outdrink others. If not, they are often considered weak. How is alcohol abuse shaped by cultural messages about masculinity? Why is outdrinking others through competitive drinking part of the culture? Why and how do you think drinking is embedded in college culture? Nick Campuzano 12:41pm Oct 19 at 12:41pm I don’t necessarily feel that alcohol shapes a culture of masculinity because males drink it so much but more as a society drinks alcohol and a lot of it . For centuries it has been around in the forms of fermented drinks throughout many of cultures around the world everyone has their own versions of it and I feel that its been centuries in the making that its amassed a huge culture not only by males but by everyone . Outdrinking others I feel comes from multiple thing like competitiveness , addiction , or simply having a higher ability to drink more alcohol than others . This also ties in with the college culture and all the drinking games that could be done at parties as well as it could be a form for people to let loose and have fun from the stresses of earning a degree . 2) Emily Lucano Sunday Oct 17 at 10:19pm In the U.S., cultural messages around toxic masculinity encourage alcohol abuse as a way to prove you are a “real man”. If a man get drunks after only a few drinks, he’d be considered a “wuss” or a girl. If a man passes out or starts throwing up as a result of excessive drinking, he’d be teased for “not being able to hold down liquor”. Alcohol is a big part of a young adult’s life because as soon as he becomes 21, he can now drink (legally) and be a man. I think outdrinking has become a competitive thing to do, along with many other ridiculous things. People tend to brag when they’re considered a “heavyweight” in drinking. It’s all about bragging rights with some people. It’s also mainly from a point where they ant to be the best. In my eyes, it just seems like a game. Who can drink the most without blacking out? I think it’s so toxic as well because it kind of shuns anyone who doesn’t like to drink. Whether it’s because of religion, or health issues, or even just if they don’t want to drink that night, they’re excluded from the people who are drinking. Granted, that’s not how it always is but it happens very often. If someone in my family doesn’t want to drink, then my other family members will call him “boring” or “no fun”. Drinking is embedded in college culture by the societal pressures. Personally, whenever I think or hear of a fraternity I think of big parties with lots of alcohol and dangerous initiation rituals. There’s been many fatal situations where people have died during their fraternity initiation due to alcohol poisoning and things of the sort. I also think people go kind of crazy with the drinking because it might be their first time away from their parents. There’s definitely a lot of underage drinking that happens in college that eventually leads to fatal accidents. People go away for college not only to further their education, but to live life and have fun. Unfortunately, most people think you have to drink to have fun and most of the time don’t “drink responsibly”.
