Fragile Masculinity

Essay 371 • Feb 25th 2019

Fragile Masculinity is a concept I have been juggling around in my head for a while now. But it wasn’t until the Kavanaugh hearing, and several posts on Facebook by friends' parents, that I realized just how "scary" it is to be a man in our country. With this information I felt compelled to move forward in such a way that I thought I could portray heterosexual (white) males bonding together in this "scary" time to be such a fragile, privileged majority.
