Man Links #7: articles exploring issues around #ManSurvey

On Wednesdays I’m sharing articles and other links that I’ve come across over the last week, which touch on issues that crossover with the #ManSurvey.

(If these aren’t enough links for for you here are the previous posts #1#2#3#4#5 and #6. And of course there is also the Further Reading List for the show.)

Please be aware of a general content note: some of these links touch on sexual assault, rape, violence and other aspects of patriarchy:

Why sex workers should be part of ‘lad culture’ campaigns by Alison Phipps on her blog

I’m Sarah Nyberg, and I Was A Teenage Edgelord. by Sarah Nyberg on Medium

Everybody in dresses: Why does gender neutral clothing always mean ‘boy’ clothes for girls? by Audra Williams for National Post

Jeremy Corbyn and women: a matter of policy not appointment by Dawn Foster on Open Democracy

Making a Dent in the narrative by Ally Fogg on Freethought blogs

Comedy & The War On Free Speech by Ijeoma Oluo on Medium

And finally this is an example of someone writing about men in a way that caused me to write this rant/response on facebook. HT to Anna Sulan Masing for bringing it to my attention. I do not endorse it’s content, style or conclusions in any way but it says a lot about masculinity:  How Sad Young Douchebags Took Over Modern Britain by Clive Martin for Vice

And this week’s episode of my Getting Better Acquainted podcast with guest James covers a lot of stuff about the #ManSurvey. I also talk about performing the show at Edinburgh in this week’s episode of the Stand Up Tragedy podcast.

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.
