Jared Yates-Sexton is an author, professor, political analyst, and all around brilliant and important human. His book “The Man they Wanted me to Be: Toxic Masculinity and a Crisis of Our Own Making” is the book we all need to read… and you shouldn’t judge it until you read it. This topic is steeped in controversy but I don’t think it should be. Our boys, and our men, need us in a way they aren’t given the tools to explain. I’m so grateful for Jared’s willingness and transparency on this topic.
