MASCULINITIES: $4, 8 ½” x 7”, copied, 28pgs.

When I opened my review packet, I immediately got excited when I got something from the likes of Cindy Crabb. I knew that I was in for a thought-provoking narrative and interesting characters. Masculinities features a series of interviews from members in the DIY community who were asked how masculinity was perceived and presented in their journey growing up, and how it has effected them in hindsight. The discussion gravitates towards how and why it is important to redefine traditional expectations and learn that masculinity it is a characteristic that shouldn’t belong or be assigned to any one gender.–Simon Sotelo (Doris Press, PO Box 29, Athens, OH 45701)
