Life is often played as game in which men’s welfare is a pawn to be sacrificed. Today I invite you to join me in another game, diversophy Manhood, a game for reframing men’s perceptions of themselves, for refreshing their mission in life, as well as disarming social biases that attack male health and limit the possible in their own eyes and actions. Each day I will post a new card from this game, a snippet of wisdom to GUIDE our exploration, a RISK to face, facts to test our SMARTS, a CHOICE to make, or an experience to SHARE.
This game is a work in progress, so your reactions, reflections, suggestions, ideas are all welcome. I’m crowdsourcing, not for cash but for solidarity. Sisters are invited as well. Women are making great strides in our age and are committed to going forward in redefining themselves. Men face a similar challenge, and the work has scarcely begun. When I launched into the intercultural field, it was apparent to me that gender was the ultimate cultural difference to bridge. We still need to support each other in creating gender identity narratives that will propel us into a harmonious and fulfilling future. Join me in the challenge!
So, here is our first game card, the words of a deeply respected and cherished colleague in the work of healing and reshaping manhood.
