This is the “General” forum, the space where you can talk about anything and everything (all at once). Better yet, you can explore things that don’t easily fit into any of the other spaces within The Masculinity Detox community. Are you interested in sharing how things are going for you right now? Go for it! Do you want to ask a question that you think the community could help you with? This is a great place to do just that! Or, do you simply want to share something hilarious that your child, partner, or best friend said to you? Well, that’s great, because this is the spot for you! Seriously, so long as you abide by our Community Agreement, you can talk about anything you like.
We are on the lookout for depictions of masculinity in Books, Movies, TV Shows, and all other kinds of modern media types. It is our goal to highlight positive portrayals and critique depictions of regressive masculinity.
While we encourage all kinds of discourse and discussion at any time of the year, every month we set a singular topic that helps us to kick-start a new round of ideas. This is one of the main opportunities within The Masculinity Detox for the community to come together and share reflect upon a single source of inspiration. Please, come and take a look. Even if the current discussion doesn’t resonate, odds are that some of the past ones will!
While we love all types of media, but there is something special about reading a well articulated complete thought by a singular author. Feel free to recommend any book or article you like, but of particular interest are books that support positive portrayals of complex masculinity. Additionally, any book or longford article that helps to dismantle systems of oppression are great choices for discussion within this forum.
