Abstract
This paper considers issues related to masculinity from an Asian perspective. It looks into sociological events that have shaped the male sex in the society and factors which lead them to turn to the same sex and not the opposite sex. Using Jung's psychoanalysis, this paper draws on the main character in Edmund Wee's The Narcissist and identifies the sociological factors that make him a homosexual. It also explores the connection between homosexuality and metrosexuality; the latter being usually related to the way of life of the male sex living in a metropolitan city. This paper also demonstrates the challenges of being in a homosexual relationship and living as a homosexual in a predominantly hegemonic masculinity society, proving that homosexuals are the product of hegemonic masculinity.
