Fall of Man shows the views of men with different set of values about masculinity and its different manifestations. The work forms a polyphonic choir, which however doesn't give a direct answer to what is to be supported and what is not. Hence, it is left to the viewers to contemplate their own opinion and its grounds.
Western democracies call for liberal values. However, at the same time our society has become more complex and pluralistic, and it is no longer easy to find a commonly shared set of values. The gender-neutral marriage law was supposed to bring equal rights to sexual and gender minorities. However, this has not happened at the practical level yet. In defending one's personal views real tolerance is being weighed and the recognition -not only identification- of another person's being different and special may remain no more than superficial politeness.
