#TonicMasculinity vs. #ToxicMasculinity, Special Guest Bill Donaghy, Theology of the Body Institute


“#TonicMasculinity vs. #ToxicMasculinity” 

 Special Guest Bill Donaghy, Theology of the Body Institute

Over the past few decades, a dagger was launched into the hearts of men with the phrase #ToxicMasculinity, the idea that masculinity is toxic to our culture. In this episode, we're joined by Bill Donaghy of the Theology of the Body Institute to talk about how authentic masculinity is actually good for our culture and to propose the solution of #TonicMasculinity.

Key topics covered in this episode:

  • The corruption of masculinity is the problem, not masculinity itself
  • Why we see a crisis in fatherhood today
  • Authentic masculinity leads to authentic femininity
  • Practical steps for living out #TonicMasculinity
