Whether it has been studied sufficiently to produce the inevitable outcome of such a study to show that ignored or misplaced anxiety becomes the violence that men produce is doubtful. The preference for force as a substitute for anxiety-repression in men has not worked and will not work because of the inevitable backlash of resentment and consternation of mean recognizing how poorly they are treated in this manner by employers, spouses, and law enforcement.
Expectations of male stoicism is the cause but not the cure, and men unable to reconcile these devisive emotional imprints are destined to fall victim to mental illness, further violence, and social conflicts they are unable to resolve emotionally - causing a disastrous trail of victims and failing effects, compromising their own human potential in the process.
Men have long taken care of men's physical bodies, and have all but ignored their mental and emotional parts.
Excuses are inadequate recognizing the harm to mankind and the cost to society.
