Crack Cocaine and The Crisis of Masculinity

Crack Cocaine and The Crisis of Masculinity

A recent article in Esquire points out that among his other transgressions, crack-smoking Toronto Mayor Rob Ford has also demonstrated an alarming lack of honor in his dealings with the press and public following the leak of the notorious videotape. (source: http://www.esquire.com/blogs/politics/rob-ford-masculinity?click=main_sr).  From Mayor Ford to disgraced Dolphin lineman Richie Incognito, the world is full of too many examples of late of men throwing their considerable weight around in desperate attempts to act like real men.  Truly behaving like a real man is much harder, but brings with it far greater, and greater-reaching rewards.  Learning how to become a man with honor is one of the many gifts of sobriety awaiting those who seek treatment at Axis West.
