Thanks for this mention, Kaia. You’re absolutely right that the battle we are fighting against the man box needs to be a collective exercise in compassion if we are to fix the deeply tangled traumas for all the men and women who are survivors of man box culture.

To Jessica’s point, the worst of the “dick faces,” whether on the street or in the halls of the US Congress, who take such joy in inflicting suffering on men and women that they simply can’t stop, need to be taken down, and stripped of their privilege to do harm. For that smaller core population at the heart of man box culture, a bit less compassion is called for, I think.
