This Is What Happens When We Teach Men to Be Wolves

When we teach young boys how to “act like a man,” what are we really teaching them?

Poet Joseph Capehart argues that our socially constructed view of masculinity is wolf-like: violent, aggressive, and emotionless. And our boys – and later, our men – struggle with and suffer from that.

So watch this performance and rethink what masculinity means to you and yours.
