I spotted a #mandictionary poster* in town last week; the one that says “Manuary”. It caught my interest, particularly in light of the post I wrote last week, so I looked it up and found out that the posters are produced by CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably), an organisation that exists to prevent male suicide in the UK. The #mandictionary project aims to help men “define themselves on their own terms” and get away from harmful male stereotypes. Sounds like a good idea to me.
* I didn’t have a chance to take a photo of it (we were on a bus), otherwise I would have posted it here, but you can see lots of examples of Mandictionary definitions at the CALM site.
