Boys & men represent the overwhelming proportion of perpetrators of all forms of interpersonal violence, including homicide, physical assault, sexual assault, domestic abuse & hate crimes. Boys & men also comprise a significant proportion of the victims of nonsexual violence. Violence by boys & men is a behavioral affirmation of stereotypical (hegemonic) masculinity. Cultural beliefs about appropriate male behavior, as well as homophobia, serve to normalize men’s violence against other men & against women.
