A man is an ãdül† male human. Prior to adulthood, a male human is referred to as a boy (a male child or adolescent). Like most other male mammals, a man's genome usually inherits an X chromosome from the mother and a Y chromosome from the father. *** differentiation of the male fetus is governed by the SRY gene on the Y chromosome. During puberty, hormones which stimulate androgen production result in the development of secondary sexual characteristics, thus exhibiting greater differences between the sexes. These include greater muscle mass, the growth of facial hair and a lower body fat composition.
Male anatomy is distinguished from female anatomy by the male reproductive system, which includes the *****, testicles, ***** duct, prostate gland and the epididymis, as well as secondary *** characteristics.
Throughout human history, traditional gender roles have often defined and limited men's activities and opportunities. Men often face conscripted into military service or are directed into professions with high mortality rates, resulting in a shorter life expectancy than women. Many religious doctrines stipulate certain rules for men, such as forced *********ion. Men are over-represented as both perpetrators and victims of violence.
Trans men have a gender identity that does not align with their female *** assignment at birth, while intersex men may have *** characteristics that do not fit typical notions of male biology.
