August Theme of the Month

We're happy to announce that the theme of the Month for August will be Masculinity. So far we have posts on masculinity coming from Tony and Jon, but we want lots of posts, with lots of different perspectives. If you'd like to contribute a post, please just contact one of the admins (Emily and Erica) or authors (Rachel and "Mickey"), and we'll be happy to get things rolling.

Some questions to keep in mind:

  1.  What does masculinity mean to you? Do you think of it positively? Negatively? Neutrally?
  2. If you identify as a man, how do you feel about being a man?
  3. If you don't identify as a man or a woman, or if you identify as one gender but feel like you have traits traditionally associated with another gender identity, how has that perspective impacted you?
  4. If you identify as a man, what would you like women to know about men?
  5. How does the media portray masculinity, and how are those portrayals positive and/or negative?
  6. How does sexuality play into your understanding of masculinity? 
  7. How does sexual orientation play into that understanding?
  8. What do you love or hate about being a man?
  9. What could everyone do to help men live happier, more fulfilling lives?
