Over the last couple of weeks, some news stories were brought to my attention that illustrate a problem I’ve been observing for a few years now.

The other was an article in Esquire UK, where the author decided to spend three months in a quest to become in his words “totally ripped”.

What strikes me about these stories is how they play into a new and pernicious narrative the new standards for male beauty and how the quest to live up to them has been taking a deadly toll on men.

Dwanya Hickerson said he “lost it” when he stabbed a transexual nurse 190 times at a Pascagoula hotel on July 23, 2016.

Hickerson, 23, was arrested 2 days later and charged with capital murder in the brutal death of 25-year-old Dee Whigham, a nurse at Forrest General Hospital in Hattiesburg.

On Thursday, almost a year after he killed Whigham, Hickerson accepted a plea deal with a recommended sentence of 40 years in prison plus eight years for robbery.
