From Masculinities 101
We were lucky to have some great new contributors this week at Masculinities 101!
Stacy Torres, a Ph.D. candidate in sociology at New York University with a recent op-ed in the New York Times, contributed her first piece for Masculinities 101. May is Older Americans Month, and Stacy reminds us to think about the specific risks for men’s mental health as they age.
Anders Wallace, a Ph.D. student in anthropology at CUNY Graduate Center, also contributed for the first time with some reflections on his fieldwork in “seduction communities.” His work illuminates the tactics and underside of pickup artist coaches in NYC.
From the Web
Jennifer Haskin published this piece in the Gender and Society blog explaining the need for changes in parental leave for fathers.
Check out this interesting piece by Matt LeMay, in which he explains that “boys who like computers are taught that we DESERVE (emphasis in original) sexual attention from women. We need to get over it.” Maculinities 101 readers, discuss.
