Ep 60: “Masculinity in a Word” with Tim Wenger of ‘TheManEffect’

“What does it means to be a man?”

“What are the words you think of when we hear the words ‘masculinity’?”

These are some of the fundamental basic starting questions on your journey to this thing I like to call “exploring your own identity and gender.” Which kinda leads to critiquing societies idea of gender, which I hope leads to critiquing your ideas around gender. I am noticing more and more a lot of guys asking themselves that very basic but enlightening question. Tim Wenger is one of those guys, and he decided to start a project (The Man Effect) when he was questioning his own version of masculinity, asking people If you were to describe what it means to be a man in one word, what would it be and why?

Well I wanted to find out more about his project, and what he has learned from it.

Tim and I also held a facebook live event where he interview me, and you can find it here.
