Hello and welcome back to the Miss Amanda Chen Show. We’re now in Season 2 of the 100 Masked Men series, where I anonymously interview different men from all walks of life about gender roles, expectations from society and how that affects our self worth.
This month we are taking a special focus on men's mental health, sponsored by Tethr, The world’s first online, peer-to-peer support community connecting men for open and honest conversations about life. And this week I'm challenging the judgment we receive from ourselves, and others, when we don't follow the path that's been set for us.
Masked Man #40 is the Childless Man. It's interesting how little we talk about a man's role in bearing children. I found a man who was involuntarily childless, who was jealous of other fathers in his peer group. And that comes at such a different space than with women trying to juggle motherhood and a career. I learn so much in this conversation, from a man from a completely different generation. And I wonder how much history will repeat itself. I hope you enjoy the show.
