This is the first in a series of Good Feed Blog posts highlighting some of what we believe to be the best blog and magazine content on the Internet.
First and foremost, Role/Reboot has an awesome mission. They are a “contemporary online magazine on culture and gender roles.”
From their About page:
We’re a group defined mostly by what we are not. We’re not the Cleavers or Ozzie and Harriet (nor do we want to be!). We’re not the status quo. We are forward-thinking, creative, thoughtful men and women dissatisfied with the limitations of deeply-embedded traditional gender roles. We are creating our own rules. We’re naturally a big-tent movement, welcoming folks like breadwinner wives, caregiver fathers, women without children, unmarried couples, people choosing careers typically associated with another gender, folks opting for non-monogamous or non-traditional marriages, men and women learning to negotiate new sexual rules in their intimate lives, and anyone trying to create lives free from the “shoulds” of gender. In short, Role/Reboot is for people ambivalent about the bill of goods they’ve been sold as a result of being a man or a woman.
In short, they’re engaging with a lot of the same issues around restrictive gender roles and outdated notions of masculinity that we are. Awesome.
