What does it mean to be a ‘great husband’, a ‘great father’, a ‘great brother’… a ‘great man’?
The lines have blurred and generations are challenged by these questions.
Some would say a great man is one who doesn’t crumble under pressure, gives respect, also expecting respect in return, someone who loves others without judgment, a person whose word is their bond, controller of self-expression, and emotions, and ultimately someone others can look up to.
But is that it? Is it that simple? What constitutes a ‘REAL MAN'?
It is easy to write down a list of all the aspects and ideas believed that make a man a great son, father, brother, or friend. But living into those lists, proved not so simple.
A Belief Busters Panel Discussion: “Are you a real man?”
Our panel discussion questions the beliefs of what constitutes a real man.
In this panel discussion, we identify some of the stereotypical beliefs about the role of the male energy and they share their personal journey on deciding to change those beliefs that no longer work for them. We also take a ground-breaking look at the non-binary issues around masculinity.
The finale of our panel discussion questions the beliefs of what constitutes a real man. In this episode, we discuss the earliest model for manhood, our dad's.
