Man Links #24: articles exploring issues around #Mansurvey

On Wednesdays I share 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 including the Further Reading List for the show.)

Please be aware of a general content note: some of these links touch on sexual assault, rape, war, prejudice, suicide, violence and other aspects of patriarchy. Also links to things that talk about how masculinity intersects with gender reflect the focus of some of the show, and should never be taken to imply that trans women are men.

I’ve recently listened to all 8 episodes of the amazing How To Be A Girl podcast. I really really recommend it. It’s a stunning piece of work and I can’t wait till the next episode. I recommend starting with Episode 1. The show is made by Marlo Mack.

I’ve also recently started listening to Intersection which is a podcast which frequently touches on issues connected to this show and site. It;s hosted by Jamil Smith and the most recent episode was about body image.

Also this week’s episode of my podcasts Getting Better Acquainted, GBA 237 Muffy Hunter, intersects a bit with the #ManSurvey show.


On Thursday 18th February at The Dogstar in Brixton I’ll be performing the live show as a double bill with Njambi McGrath at Stand Up Tragedy Presents. In the run up to the live show the Stand Up Tragedy podcast is putting out some previous shows that are about identity which we showcased in 2015. The first episode is Stand Up Tragedy Presents: How To Be Fat.

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.
