For better or worse, the group Conscious Men has caused quite a stir. Their message, released in a YouTube video last March, is a new form of masculinity that celebrates women and acknowledges the destruction male dominance has had on this planet.
It perhaps speaks to their unique approach that over 600,000 people have viewed the video. The clip has even caught the attention of actors Will Ferrell and Will Forte, who have apparently joined the movement and created a video of their own.
If nothing else, the video reflects my own ability to laugh at my feminist-hippie-New Age-crunchy self.
