Man Links #2: articles exploring issues around #ManSurvey

On Wednesday’s I’m sharing articles and other links which touch on issues that crossover with the #ManSurvey that I’ve come across over the last week. Last week’s batch was the first one. I also linked recently to some of the writing that inspired me to make this website/show in the first place.

Here are this week’s links:

The Media Is Lying to You About Men’s Emotions, And It’s Really F*cked Up – Here’s a Healthier View by Robot Hugs published on Everyday Feminism.

This powerful account on the website i believe you | it’s not your fault touches on some of the major themes of the show as well as the survey [CN: rape] : Firm Lines by anonymous

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver on Transgender Rights

The price of speaking out in Hollywood by @ProResting published by Standard Issue

Also I’ve been pointed towards Boxed In which is another show and website tackling the subject of gender. The show is being produced by Portmanteau and the website is looking to document and share people’s experiences of gender.

I’ll be writing a post recommending shows which you can see at the Edinburgh Fringe that have the same kind of feel, or touch on the same subjects as my show later this month but since I’m talking shows I’d like to give a shout out to the Kickstarter for Mathilda Gregory‘s How to Be Fat which has 8 days left. The show is going to be really really good so I strongly recommend supporting it.

Also in the conversation I had with Cameryn Moore on last week’s episode of my podcast Getting Better Acquainted I talked about some of the issues I’ve been considering while writing the show. She is another person whose shows I’ll be recommending properly in a future post.

Guest blog posts and analysis of the survey are still very welcome. And please do get in touch if you use the #ManSurvey as research, as reference, as teaching material or in any other way,  I am really happy to signal boost and link to what you are doing.
