Gendercast Episode 22: What IS Masculinity Anyway?  

Join Jesse and Sean as they* muddle through exploring what masculinity means [and just in case you're wondering - we don't know, nor do we figure it out] and navigating it in the world.  They will discuss the Tarheels and Transfags article to get started and historical butch lesbian/dyke masculinity vs. trans* and genderqueer masculinity coming from being assigned female at birth.   Exploring masculinity through taking hormones, internal gender identity and [perceived] gender expression are some of the terrain they cover. 

*This is a more personal episode for your gendercast hosts and they only speak from their own experiences/narratives.
