Father's Day and Toxic Masculinity

June 17, 2019

 

 

 

On Sunday I tried to address two topics. What does it mean to be a man - looking at the toxic masculinity video by Gillette - and a thought on Father’s Day.

 

It didn’t go well. Too big of a topic - and a technology glitch? I don’t know... but it didn’t feel right.

 

If I were to sum it up, I would say that men need to speak up more about inappropriate behaviour and we need to listen more deeply to women - not fix or presume to know.

 

Regarding Father’s Day - my kids gave me answers to the question, “What do you need from a Dad?”
 

I loved their wisdom and honesty.

 

And I invited others to ask their kids, significant others, friends, etc. to ask the question. I’d love to hear your answers.

 

Finally a piece on what a palliative care person hears people say they regret on their death bed.

All in all, a good idea - not well executed.

 

Thankfully there is always next week!
