Our generation is exposed to more diversity, but the impacts of the older generations dissaproval still has impacts on us today. we have improved a lot since a few years ago.

I don’t have a specific role model, but any man who is accepting of everyone and is comfortable with his masculinity is a role model to me.

I think we should all challenge the social pressure being a man has on us. Society has pressured men into being closed off and made them to only appear as strong characters. men can be weak, sad and uncomfortable just the same as women and others.

to me, masculinity is just simply being a man. it has no restrictions and it is how you perceive yourself as a male.

Hey Sam

Here are just a few questions to get us started, feel free to reply to whatever u feel like replying to, you are very welcome to ask me any questions too =)

I think people of your generation are somehow lucky enough to be exposed to a lot more diversity of gender expressions than for instance the generation of men before you, what are your thoughts on this ?

Do you happen to have any male role models ? What are the qualities that you like about them?

Do you think that it is important for us to challenge, and change aspects of masculinity that are problematic?

What does masculinity mean to you ?

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts
