“Through our stories, we can help other people realize how trying to conform to these strict ideals simply doesn’t work. We can hope to one day broaden people’s views on gender and help them understand it’s all a spectrum.”

Mac Scotty McGregor, author of Positive Masculinity Now (Ch. 13)

“Positive Masculinity Now provides a fresh perspective concerning the cultural forces that force men to internalize toxic and dysfunctional masculine ideals. In very concrete terms, McGregor teases apart the emotional and behavioral consequences of toxic masculinity while describing their role in fueling everything from misogyny and rape culture to heteronormativity, homophobia, and transphobia throughout multiple channels in society. McGregor then lays out a path forward that encourages healing and growth, and that forces the reader to reconsider the fundamental question of what it means to be a man.”
