"Am I tough enough? Hell yes, I’m tough enough!”
Peter Lloyd, author of Stand by your Manhood, writer and activist Jawaad Alipoor and Professor Mark McCormack, author of The Declining Significance of Homophobia discuss what defines the modern man. How is masculinity viewed in contemporary society? Do men have to be tough, good at sports and ready to beat the next man down? Or are men really just people like the rest of us?
Once the bread-winner, warrior, protector, today the terms absent father, alpha male, predator are more in vogue. Some claim a feminisation of society is taking place. How clearly defined and traditional does the role of a man in society have to be, or does true masculinity lie in being brave enough to stand up for who you really are?
Join us for a no holds barred discussion on the shifting parameters of what it means to be a real man in the 21st century.
