A short message to all the men worried about that Gillette ad, the APA report on toxic masculinity, and all the other ‘attacks’ on manliness

Dear Dudes:

Nobody’s asking you not to be a man. Not even this Gillette ad.

And not even that notorious APA report.

They’re asking you not to be a dick.

There’s a difference. If you don’t know the difference, you should find out.

Thanks, Joel
