In confronting masculinity, Jeff, Allen, and Raj discuss building a better social construction for themselves, particularly by tackling toxic masculinity and male supremacy. They examine their formations as cisgender-straight-males, reveal personal challenges, challenge each other and wonder what could be.
Patriarchy is examined in relationship to male supremacy and toxic masculinity. A definition of toxic masculinity offered in the show is from the good men project. Women After All: Sex, Evolution, and the End of Male Supremacy by Melvin Konner M.D is cited as a resource.
The reduction of testosterone in men is mentioned and an acknowledgement that those hurt by male supremacy and toxic masculinity are missing voices in the Confronting Masculinity - Building a Better Social Construction.
