This Father's Day, I've been thinking about redefining masculinity. Well, I've been thinking a lot about this in general, but especially on Father's Day, because our fathers, those of us lucky enough to have our fathers, are usually the first masculine figures in our lives and thus the first person to teach us what "masculinity" means and looks like. Over the centuries, we've created a definition of masculinity that is at the root of inequality and it harms both men and women.
So, as we celebrate our fathers, let's also celebrate the future fathers we are creating, by showing them everything it is to be a man, or at least a human man. Here are five essential ways we can and must do to redefine masculinity:

Happy Father's Day to all the fathers and father figures!
BIG LOVE & HUGS
