Man Links #27: 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. Last week I was a bit too busy performing the show and releasing the show as a podcast that I didn’t get the links blog out so this is a collection from the last 2 weeks.

(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.

The Stand Up Tragedy podcast is putting out some of our 2015 shows that were about identity. The first episode was Stand Up Tragedy Presents: How To Be Fat. The second episode was Stand Up Tragedy Presents: Howl of the Bantee which is a show that intersects in many ways with my show and is concerned with many of the same issues. The third episode went out last Friday and is Stand Up Tragedy Presents: What About the Men? Mansplaining Masculinity.

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.
