Mask 4 Masc – A Featured Chapter
MASK4MASC throws gender norms and fragile masculinity to the wind. E L Croucher plays a key part in the book with her featured chapter.
Her small, heartfelt section about toxic masculinity can be found in the newly released compilation piece, by Thomas Crawshaw.
You must be shredded. Deep voice. Ogle the women, they’re yours to own. Don’t cry. Don’t wear make up. Don’t like men. If you’re anything other than the stereotypical male, good luck. Toxic masculinity is rife. Contemporary society forces you to wear it like a one size fits all t-shirt. But it isn’t. Masculinity should fit around you, not the other way round. MASK4MASC delves into the pits and troughs of how masculinity overshadows us as individuals. Why did Margaret Thatcher have to go through voice training to sound more masculine? Does being a gay man mean you can’t be typically masculine? And why are people so fixated on labeling gender identity in people that they don’t know?
