Crisis in Masculinity


“to obey to masters the men, their job is to protected and we are we expected respect them” says Claire in Copenhagen. It the talk on the web … on social .. content creators galore… from the left… and to the right. The topic? Masculinity. There is so many out there to tell what men should do or is men at fault for things… but is there a crisis? Worse is men tuning out of society?  “you should be looking at women that have a family, that are  respectful and men respect them” says “Myron Gains” a host of the Fresh & Fit Podcast. Opining that society is changing, said Kate, when a crew went to Portsmouth, New Hampshire a couple months back ” yeah, you can wear nail polish and play with dolls and that’s not feminine anymore… that’s old school”. Courtney Cristine Ryan, an extremist YouTuber on masculinity claims that “men are fatigued” when it comes to the dating market.

The statistics could startle you.

“It got us kinda concerned”, according to Rebecca Briccardi, a researcher  UMINI Copenhagen conducted a research of area young men the spring time… those concerning numbers? Out of 1,500 polled, more than 22% have not had a sexual relationship under the age of 30.   “The ones that responded claimed mixed messaging describing akin to “walking on eggshells.” “I think we are putting men at a disadvantage of painting them with a broad brush”; for what used to be younger girls being harder to raise, Briccardi says the mixed messaging towards younger men, maybe worse… to the point where intimacy may go away with present hashtag-me too mentality. According to Justin Baldoni, a host of The Man Enough Podcast cited “78% of all high school seniors do not know what consent is.”

It’s not just relationships from YouTube influencers, to podcasters, from hard right to extreme left; the perception of many voices from individuals that may not be qualified could be causing men to either check out or worse harm themselves..

As we commence our coverage on this pressing issue; we will be looking at these issues from multiple angles, from the so- called “manosphere” culture, to what’s online for men to consume to improve themselves, and is that making the situation inherently  worse? Is modern feminism causing men to feel inferior or is toxic masculinity hiding it?  Our reports are not conclusive, but we are here to dissect it and see what could be the solutions to an underlying problem.
