As men, we have understood first hand what toxic masculinity does to someone. It confines the actions of men and the possibilities of women. We want to eliminate the expectations of how men are, and aren’t supposed to act, dress, speak, and even live. The three of us have all changed the way we have acted to fit in at one point in our lives. As we have gotten older, we realize that locking ourselves inside a norm wasn’t the way to act. In our song, we speak about our own experiences and everything we have dealt with, and specifically not allowing the stereotype of being masculine stand in the way of supporting and caring for your brothers and friends. While you listen, I hope you listen to our anecdotes and resonate to what we have to say. Song by Emry Herring, Jesus Garcia and Jhaiell Kilgore.
