A Small Follow Up Post

As a small follow up to yesterday’s post I wanted to share this clip from Tough Guise 2 which is excellent and worth the watch if you have access to it. Tough Guise, the original documentary is easier to find and though some of the examples are dated at this point it is still an excellent discussion of how toxic masculinity hurts everyone.

“If we talked about crimes like these and why they are so common, we’d have to talk about what kinds of profound change this society, or this nation, or nearly ever nation needs. If we talked about it, we’d be talking about masculinity, or male roles, or maybe patriarchy, and we don’t talk much about that.” — Rebecca Solnit, Men Explain Things to Me
