This month, we're here to talk about two topics that have been present both in the headlines and very much here at our company... consent & masculinity.
Now that we're a year into the #MeToo movement, it's time we have an in-depth conversation as to what consent is and what consent isn't. The collection we've curated for this conversation is sure to help you as you take on these brave conversations with the significant others and loved ones in your life.
The term 'toxic masculinity' has become quite the buzzword within feminist circles over the course of the past few years. We feel it's time to discuss what that term really means. And no... it doesn't mean that masculinity in and of itself is toxic. However, the overwhelming value that's placed on masculine-perceived traits (e.g. being strong, not showing emotion) at the expense of feminine-perceived ones (e.g. showing emotion) can lead to, not only toxic results, but quite often deadly ones.
