Welcome back to the second part of our series on redefining masculinity. Masculinity is an intrinsic part of being human and is a quality possessed by men, women, and nonbinary gender identities. Over time, the essence of masculinity and femininity has devolved into toxic definitions, and our understanding of them has changed drastically. In today’s episode, we deconstruct the misunderstood narratives behind contemporary masculinity and femininity. We leave no stone unturned and explore various attributes associated with these traits, referring to insightful comments passed on by our valuable callers, notes from the Bible, and modern legends like Mike Tyson.
We open the show by reflecting on Part 1 of the series, touching on Mike Tyson and how he has become the face of masculinity and manhood. After hearing about his appearances on the Oprah Winfrey Show and Hot Box Podcast, we begin our journey across a broad range of topics within masculinity. Stay tuned and you’ll hear about the vulnerability and the ways it can empower you.
Later in the show, we begin to (re)define masculinity, with our hosts providing personal anecdotes on the subject. As our conversation takes shape, we also take a look at the role of femininity and how it's understood by our different callers. Toward the end of the episode, we talk in detail about the role of fathers and how men need to practice positive affection. Be sure to join us in this enriching episode today!
