Someone’s gotta look out and call “land”.

There's not ONE template for us. Men carve wood sculptures and read Aristotle. Men weld and drive trucks and teach school and design circuits and fly commercial airliners and any number of jobs. Men like football and don't like it. Men drink Scotch and ale and coffee and tea and water.

We need a show that doesn't put us in ONE box, but doesn't deny that there's something decent and right that makes us men. What that thing is, is a journey, not an absolute answer.

Nobody has all the answers. No one is the 'perfect' man or epitome' of "true" masculinity. So let's have a sense of humor about that, and call out things we KNOW are mucking up manhood and our full participation in the culture. The assholes are dominating the discussion. Let's call them out.

Every time someone defends 'date rape' as "boys being boys" or jumps on their own personal Access Hollywood bus and claims real men grab women in their special places, we've got a responsibility to call those men wusses, hacks, fake-men, and assholes. That's not political content; it's just US being ACTUAL men and saying what isn't.
