Reflecting on Toxic Masculinity
What this collection has attempted to do is provide impetus to a very simple idea: plurality. It considers the need for more than one type of gender, with a spectrum of gender identities instead to deconstruct monstrous Otherness. It is only through an ideology of the many – included, represented, brought centre-stage – that the construct of hegemonic masculinity, so narrow in its discourse of what is and what it should be, can be effectively dismantled. This collection proposes a current scenario that is far from evolved, but also far from hopeless: an environment where a better future might germinate. It begins with better representation, more variety, and less homogeneity. It ends with new possibilities, new stories that are fresh yet highly resonant, and new narratives that do not perpetuate a continued misery just to validate its cycle.
