Throughout my four years living in an all-male residence hall at a Christian university, I picked up a few things on the culture present in a male dorm. While there were countless positives that resulted from my time living in a residence hall being challenged, encouraged, enlightened, etc. Serving as a residence assistant my senior year, one of my largest frustrations was the negative, collective attitude that so often crept up. When interacting with most individuals on my wing, I could almost always find a point of relation and understanding.

I know my residence hall experience was not unique. Instead of looking for acceptance and support from a network of parents, teachers, coaches, good friends or pastors, most rites of passage for young men are done amongst peers. This absence of adults leads to ridiculous and potentially harmful initiations into adulthood for men.

The three cultures are the cultures of entitlement, of silence, and of protection. This culture often plays out in what many men assume is rightfully theirs. The culture of silence often plays out in the way that men stay silent even when their peers are clearly in the wrong. This protects guys in their immature and oftentimes violent or dangerous behaviors and preserves unbalanced systems of power.

These three cultures can easily be identified on college campuses everywhere from extreme examples to the day-to-day practices of guys. A chapter is dedicated to each of the following: sports, media, pornography, sex, party rape, and girls. In like manner, the following chapters detail the perils, the use, and misuse of the other subjects included in the exploration of young men today.

While this is a book about the atmosphere in which guys grow up in and its primary audience is certainly for those concerned with young men, the effect for women is also important to pay attention to. For example, a women can talk sports, but not if she is going to outtalk the guys in the group.

We need to be encouraging young men in their efforts of valuing humanity. With this said, Kimmel encourages mature adults to include themselves in the lives of young men, speaking into their lives and communicating an accurate definition of masculinity.

In many respects, providing a place where students can balance freedom with responsibility is our primary objective in development. While Guyland is certainly more descriptive than prescriptive in nature, it gives an excellent look into how and why many of the young male and female students with whom we work think and act the way they do.

Thankfully, Kimmel never resorts to simply speaking of how awful the next generation of young men is nor does he let young men off the hook. Rather, he simply illustrates what he has observed in the current culture and offers his thoughts on how we have gotten there.

Practically speaking, the book works better for giving a context of young males rather than ways in which to work with them. While many of the students I work with have grown up in great homes and schools, they are all still working through what it means to be their own person. Understanding what our culture is telling them about masculinity and manhood is of vital importance as I, in my weak and humble way, attempt to speak truth into their lives.

A Book Review of Guyland: The Perilous World Where Boys Become Men

The book covers the culture for young men transitioning from adolescence to adulthood. Kimmel interviewed men aged 16 to 26 and identified a trend whereby young men increasingly delay adulthood. By comparison, today less than a third of men reach these milestones before their thirties. Kimmel writes that young men are reluctant to grow up because they "see grown-up life as such a loss".

Book Review: “Guyland: The perilous world where boys become men” by Michael Kimmel

The great question haunting our lifestyle journalists — are our daughters having healthy, empowering sex? One-fifth of all year-olds live with their parents. Young middle-class white men feel the relative decline in their status particularly acutely, Kimmel argues. Their privileges are under siege. Women compete with them in the work force.
