Hi Tony. Having an intact family is no guarantee that the brutal and bullying culture of man box masculinity won’t be present and powerful. Many boys learn to suppress their relational and emotional expression directly from their own fathers and mothers.
Damaging man box messages permeate all aspects of our culture. Boys can not escape it. Which is why we need to put an end to it. Then boys in all kinds of families, gay, straight, single parent, blended and so on, will have an equal opportunity to grow the relational capacities they are born with, instead of having those capacities shamed and bullied out of them.
