Removed this because it's in first person mode and isn't even complete. It shouldn't be put back until it has a more complete description in normal third-person form.

  • There's a festival somewhere in SE Asia, I believe, where all males above their early teens buy razor blades, barbed wire, and small knives, and spend a day slashing their own chests open in the name of... something. I saw a piece of a National Geographic documentary on it. If anyone could find more information on that, it would really help the trope.

Can we please rename this to "Machochism"?

I second that. It's a shorter, simpler, catchier title that makes the idea of the trope instantly apparent.

Fight Club is listed twice. I'm not sure which entry is better to keep, though.
