A small group of us are discussing restarting Byron Sophia discussion groups, with a view to holding them in Mullumbimby or other accessible venues (suggestions for preferred time, day also welcomed).
I sat down to enjoy a few beers and lunch with friend (Emma) the other day, and before I could share what I'd been thinking would be a great topic for a Byron Sophia meeting, without prompting Emma mentions how 'toxic femininity' would be the complementary form of 'toxic masculinity'.
Talk about synchronicity — over the previous few days I'd been mulling over how that exact topic could be approached, what whiteboard topics would ideally encapsulate the subject, how to spot each. Whereas the masculine form is easy-as to see, the feminine form ... well that's grist for the discussion mill, imo. Being alert to both can offset confusion, and better equip us when encountering either, both.
Anyway, that was one idea.
Another was to re-visit the "Courage to be disliked" group meet we had earlier this year.
