Unfortunately to the average Aussie male (and males in other countries), the term “toxic masculinity” is heard as “masculinity is toxic”. This failure of communication brings such strident and strong resistance that those of us who are committed to reducing family violence need to rethink how we communicate this important message.
Men, we are with you.
But we are against your attitudes and behaviours that are just plain wrong.
But as we talk about the things that are wrong we also need to talk about the things in men that are good.
Which is why I am writing a book “Real Men Challenge” and encouraging this conversation …
What is a good man?
What is positive masculinity?
Happy for your contributions.
