ON GUNS AND “TOXIC MASCULINITY”

As important as it is to reduce the number of firearms in this country, it is perhaps even more important to address the topic of “toxic masculinity.”

“Toxic masculinity” is the wound left by this culture’s punishment for men who express feelings of fear or vulnerability. It is the sense of loneliness that haunts us men behind our stoic masks.
