The video is the  fourth annual installment  of end -of-year roundups from The Representation Project, each of which highlights the damaging impact of gender roles.  From advertisements to movies and media, the video reveals the conflicting messages sent to men about masculinity — some negative, some positive.  In order to “be a man,” guys are told to objectify women and be “macho.” So, basically: via GIPHY  Thankfully, there are some men who are publicly pushing back on these gender norms, and advocating for women and healthy masculinity.  “Having those traits that make me traditionally masculine doesn’t exclude me from wanting gender equality,” actor and outspoken feminist Matt McGorry says in a clip featured in the video.    Actors Terry Crews and Dwayne Johnson , and “Last Week Tonight” host John Oliver  also make heartening appearances.  As Johnson says towards the end of the video:  “The most important thing that I can do with my daughter is lead our life with love — not success, not fame.”  Yes, yes and more yes.  Also on HuffPost:  — This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.
