Women problems or as it is called today as gender issues, which have been included in other branches of social sciences as a sub-heading in the past, have turned out to be a major discipline thanks to systematic and integrative conceptualization efforts of feminist movements. Although these discussions still protect their freshness, they have proceeded a lot in a short time by founding their epistemological ground coherently and decisively. Social gender studies that ground on the neglected history of the women in the point of inquiring the power relation between man and woman, and the inequality caused by this relation, generally have tried to bring the unequal status of the women in social system into view via objective data. However, the same social system has made status and role definitions for the man as a social gender category and have loaded missions and responsibilities on man together with important rights. These rights, objectives and responsibilities, while forming the description of the unequal relation between man and woman at one hand, on the other hand, they have put up a wall in front of the man to prevent him to inquire the image of power and stability that attributed him on biologic and psychological grounds. The man, who cannot take the system of social values on, has entered into the process of alienation/adjustment within the frame of gender. The alienation that the man has has reflected in his attitudes, discourses and acts. This study, is aimed to scrutinize the process of dealing with the existential problem of the man, who show inadequacy on the point of the genders roles that are attributed to him, and who cannot face with the system of social values. Thus, the analysis of the data gained in the study, and the assertion based on these analyses has been employed as the main method. Consequently, social indicators show that man, who have the relevant problem enters in the process of alienation/adaptation on the basis of gender problem, and that emergent alienation has been reflected to his attitude, discourse and action.
