Guy Talk: February 2020

Welcome to Guy Talk, a serious space to discuss masculinity, good and bad.

It’s been a year since I published “Touch and Toxic Masculinity” on the Avocado, which became the inspiration for the Guy Talk series. I received a lot of helpful prompts from fellow commentators, suggesting we discuss the effect masculinity has on such varied topics as sport, gender expression and self-control.

I feel we’ve now discussed the most obvious topics, so I’ve decided the best way for Guy Talk to proceed is as a monthly open thread, published on the 1st Monday of the month. So, talk about whatever aspect of masculinity you like!

Remember that this is a trans-inclusive space, and that everyone is welcome to comment.
