I recently watched this documentary on netflix on what it means to be a man and how society pushes a masculinity on boys that destroys them.

I thought I should leave the link here,
THE MASK YOU LIVE IN;

It would be great to hear your thoughts on this topic.

Kevin | 3 comments It was strange watching this. So much resonates. It's sometimes easy to forget how much socialization happens when you're young and how many people feel the same way.

And what I kept thinking when I was watching is how hard it is to fix this problem. Because some of the older men in our families didn't give that "be a man" speech with malice. They thought they were right. Because there are often consequences, especially in the school phase, for deviating from the standard male template from your peers. It is such a disturbing and complicated problem. Like that guy said, long way to go
