Masculinity vs Femininity: The Definition Problem

I think one of the reasons we have so much drama around the terms masculinity and femininity is because of the old school dictionary definition of those terms, which basically state masculine means traits exclusive to men, feminine means traits exclusive to women. These are nonsense definitions. There’s no such thing as a trait that only men do, or all Read More

Redefining “masculinity” and “femininity”

To become more powerful in your masculinity, contact me for coaching dan@brojo.org The word “masculine” has been defined as traits characteristic of males. Not only does this vague definition leave way too much room for the “woke” movement to start weaponising the word (e.g. making being male look toxic), but it’s impractical and senseless. Men can be both masculine and Read More

Why the term “Toxic Masculinity” hurts us all

Get my Shamelessness course on Udemy to become a confident beast today The term “toxic masculinity” was original devised by a men’s advocate group to describe the way men are raised with a skewed, macho, harmful version of what it means to be a man. However, as a term toxic masculinity has since come to basically mean that it’s bad Read More

There is no such thing as toxic masculinity

This modern term completely baffles me. To me, the term “toxic masculinity” sounds no less confusing than “toxic health” or “toxic sunlight” or “toxic love”. These things are innately healthy and helpful, and if toxicity is present then these things are not. Today I’ll be making the case to state you’re either being masculine or you’re being toxic, but you Read More

Why You Don’t Feel Like An Adult

Chimps vs Humans My friend Dave must’ve been doing some late-night research around the psychology and the social development of humans, because he randomly emailed me the other day saying that a human goes through a much longer juvenile period than chimpanzees do.
