I spoke with Dan, the man behind the Nice-Ish-Psychologist Instagram and Twitter accounts, and the Nice-ish Ramblings podcast. He is a HCPC registered Forensic and Clinical Psychologist, and uses his spare time to educate people on the internet about issues relating to masculinity, sexual violence against women, gender, and sometimes how all these aspects of society and culture interlink.
In the podcast we discuss; Masculinity and the ManBox culture, #Notallmen, How to speak about gender, Religion’s role in the patriarchy, the patriarchy in the government, Women in government, and how to be an ally.
