The Mask You Live In

The Mask You Live In

It’s a breath of fresh air to see a documentary coming to fruition that focuses on the detrimental effects caused by the world’s view of masculinity. We’ve seen many documentaries similar to this for women, but sometimes we forget to analyze these sort of things for men.

I can remember wanting to die when I was a child due to the pressure of my peers (seriously, there were thoughts of suicide). I was the awkward smart kid who needed a little work on his social skills. I can remember being lured into a fight once because I didn’t want to be seen as weak. I can remember being called ‘fag’, ‘goomer’, ‘pussy’ and ever other word you can think of that kills self esteem. I can definitely relate to the premise of this documentary and I cannot wait to watch it.
