What does it mean to “be a man?”

Masculinity is a difficult concept to nail down. Sadly, because we, as people, have come to define everything in terms of absolutes and leave no room for any sort of nuance or shading "masculinity" has become sort of a bad word.  Traditional gender roles and discrimination has turned any classic idea of "masculinity" into a bad word, a way of minimizing or dismissing the efforts of women and dismissing femininity.

This week we discuss why this is wrong. We also discuss why all the sexist bullshit that came before was wrong. In short... we try and figure out what it really means to be a man and how that has been represented in movies up to this point.
