[For the people who may misinterpret this: It doesn’t mean that men don’t actually experience fear. It does mean however, that when it comes to conditioning and socialization, men are taught that to be “real men” they must embody an idealized standard of masculinity - i.e: evoking a powerful, strong and/or intimidating presence and to have a courageous, fearless countenance. The fear of men in women, androphobia, is typically reactionary to that.]
