#ThatBlackCouple Ep 3 – Coming of Age with the Toxic Masculinity of 90’s Black TV
In “First Things First”, we talk about how we were introduced to masculinity and the impact of growing up in single-mother households.
In “The Conversation”, we define toxic masculinity and give some concrete examples from television shows. Highlights include perpetually invasive stalker Stever Urkel from “Family Matters” and Overton and Kyle from “Living Single”.
In “The Reflection”, we discuss how grateful we are to have been raised by single mothers and explain how the absence of male figures in our households helped make us who we are today.
