In this TEDx talk, Craig shares his belief that true masculinity is a beautiful gift to humanity, and that it is wounded masculinity that is so deeply destructive. He shows us that if we can heal men, we can heal the world.
Masculinity is a profoundly beautiful gift to humanity. Wounded and distorted masculinity however is a dreadful curse to humanity. Society has rightly responded very negatively to the harm done by wounded men with a misconstrued concept of masculinity. Sadly though much of the response has done more to perpetuate the problem than solve it. We have tried to tame men, re-invent men, feminize men, and vilify men. What we really need though is not to reinvent masculinity but to rediscover it. And enough men living with true masculinity will transform our world into the safe, beautiful and exciting place it was always meant to be.
