The Bright Side of Masculinity: How Gender Roles are Changing in 2018

The Takeaway

All this week, The Takeaway is talking about men. The Takeaway speaks with two experts about why they're optimistic for the future of masculinity; Since the Parkland shooting, comedian and actor Michael Ian Black has been thinking critically about how masculinity is shaping our youth; a former NBA player spent most of his life running away from his experience of childhood sexual abuse, until it caught up to him; a man who was assigned female at birth and then transitioned to male in his mid-20s on how he has reckoned with how to avoid reinforcing gender norms in his everyday life; and a mother of three sons, on the challenges of raising black boys.
