MANformation: distilled links

Links to perspectives on issues to do with men, sex, and gender:

I’ve just come across ‘One Man’s Eyes‘…an  excellent blog

Inside Man‘ is an interesting online magazine for boys and men

The difference between men’s and women’s brains? Quite a serious article here and I like the cartoons

Here’s a bloke’s perspective on the ‘No More Page 3‘ campaign.

The Boys To Men community based mentoring approach ‘gives boys a variety of male role models who show up consistently, tell the truth about our struggles as men, ask the boys what kind of man they want to be, praise them for their gifts, support them when they screw up, and encourage them to become the man they want to be’.

Journeyman UK is a British equivalent  ‘dedicated to supporting boys aged 13 to 17 to discover their unique potential and apply their gifts in service to themselves, each other and their community at large’.

This is a link the the Guardian’s campaign to end FGM (surely one of the most woman hating practices ever invented).

Ken Page teaches that our “core gifts” are the most direct path to love and a sense of mission. Core gifts aren’t the same as talents or skills. They are the places of our deepest sensitivity, longing and passion—which is why our most painful wounds and insecurities surround them. Page’s Gift Theory explores the crucial relationship between our gifts and wounds, and teaches ways of understanding and liberating those gifts which live at the core of our authentic self.
