In this study, Kenneth MacKinnon suggests that ultimately masculinity is no straightforward actuality. Instead, several aspects of masculinity are ideals rather than social realities. These ideals might be best understood as forming a near-impossible version of masculinity to which males in society are encouraged to aspire if they want to be 'real men'.
