A couple posts ago I wrote about what I would have said to my husband if I saw him again. I would ask him to be emotionally intelligent, to understand that emotions do not equate weakness. Lately I have been reading a lot about the crisis of masculinity. There are several movements world wide that seem to be addressing this.
Domestic Violence is not a victim's fault; nothing she did could possibly deserve a violent retaliation. Domestic Violence, and the ending of domestic violence is as much of a man's issue as a woman's.
Withholding emotion, dominating situations and asserting masculinity is not what this life is about, but it is what we are training our boys to believe.
Below Tony Porter makes a call to men to step outside of the "Man Box", this seems to be a thread strung through most of the crisis against masculinity messaging.
Joe Ehrmann speaks about being told to be a man. Separating your heart from your head, using women to validate masculinity, and measuring a man. Ehrmann explores what "Be a Man" is doing to us and what "Being a
