The New Masculinity

In this episode of VICE’s series “The Chosen Ones” UK Correspondent Gavin Haynes makes his way across the pond to the United States in order to determine what masculinity means to your average American man these days.

America has always been seen to embrace ones masculinity with stereotypical acts such as fraternity hazing, monster truck rallies and food competitions and now there is a growing movement of men who are joining together in order to challenge the conventions and redefine ‘machoism’.

Haynes meets up with several of these men including a competitive eater, a troupe of stay-at-home-dads and a radical men’s group hosting a slumber party in the woods, in an attempt to survey the evolution of American masculinity for himself.
