Patriarchal systems don’t just attempt to put women in their place, but also men. The system constructs a “box” that men must stay in to be considered “real men”.
In this episode, my husband and Licensed Professional Counselor, Kevin Hales and I explore how limiting our ability to express ourselves as humans into stereotypical boxes of what it means to be a man (or a woman) not only creates shame and anxiety inside of us, but extends outward to affect our relationships with the people closest to us and society in general.
