Communication and Gender Studies

How does the English language that is spoken in the US accomplish how we portray men as serious? How do we describe them by their activities and accomplishments, particularly compared to language about women? What are the sorts of nicknames that we have for men, or the sort of insults that we have for them? What about the adjectives that we typically use to describe men?
