Short Film: American Male

This short film has been posted about in many blogs, but in case you missed it I wanted to link to it here.  It comes from MTV’s “Look Different” Campaign which seeks to bring up issues of privilege and bias.  We all have biases – some are cognizant of them while others seem blissfully unaware.

This film shows us how we perceive masculinity and heteronormativity in society.  There were a few things mentioned in the film that I hadn’t really even thought about.  It makes you look at yourself, and also how you look at the people around you.
