Feels X Gains: Emotions, Masculinity and Support

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Offline you're a normal dude, happy enough, nice enough and good enough. Online though, you're either a raging douchebag who can do no wrong or a sadsack whose FB friends are all happier, famouser and in better relationships with hotter girls or guys.
Join our panel of mental health experts, healthy relationship facilitators, gender theorists and one meathead Jersey-boy poet to discuss how men talk about (or don't talk about) emotions online.
We've seen really horrible things done over the last year by men who are lost, who don't have a healthy relationship to their own feelings and who don't have a place to develop those emotions.
And what about community? Is it important for guys to have a safe space online? Or is that an invitation to create an angry mob of dudes? How can we be heard while still listening to and learning from others?
Let's create products and apps and programs and games that help guys figure out these complex feels. Together we can be awesomer.
