A videoessay breaking down the masculinity in the apple tv show Ted Lasso, starring Jason Sudekis as a football coach. This analysis considers the healthy masculinity of characters such as Roy Kent, the developing masculinity of Jamie Tartt, as well as touching on the toxic masculinity of Rupert Mannion and Jamie's dad.
This show teaches a lot about how strength and sensitivity need not be in opposition to each other, but actually work together to empower a person.
