What is masculinity? Is it just a fancy way of saying macho or is it more than that?
Years ago, we used to revere the strong and silent type. These days, not so much. Men are expected to be brave, tough and resolute, as well as sensitive and vulnerable. And while one can certainly be all of those things, the challenge is trying to balance them.
Here to assist me in breaking down this topic is my friend, writer David Atchison (12 Gauge Comics, Dynamite Entertainment). David and I discuss early impressions of manliness, superheroic imagery, girls, the emo rapper, and what we think it means to be masculine in the modern era.
