Toxic Masculinity is Fueling An Epidemic of Loneliness

1. Reflection Questions

How does language like “no homo” create a culture that isolates people who identify as men and boys? 

How have stereotypes about masculinity and “being a man” impacted you or someone you know? 

2. Take Action

Say Something. Discrimination and bias are often grounded in deep levels of misinformation and stereotypes. When you hear or see someone spread rumors, lies or hateful rhetoric about populations of people due to their real or perceived identities, what do you do?
