Gender Reveal

Mar 19, 2019

In this week’s episode, Tuck speaks with masculinity expert Thomas Page McBee (he/him), author of Amateur and Man Alive. Topics include:

  • What does non-toxic masculinity look like?
  • Does testosterone really cause aggression?
  • Can non-masculine folks help dismantle toxic masculinity?
  • Being afraid of men… and then becoming one.
  • Using violence as a cover for intimacy.
  • Embracing trans joy.
