Men's mental health is so important!!!! Supporting each other and telling your boys that they look good can move mountains of internalized shame and self-loathing!!! It is not weak to tell your bros you feel fat or ugly or anything like that. It's strong and I support and love you.
There were many ideas I had in mind when creating Kith.Kitchen: that it could be more than just a mircoblog; from providing useful tools for finding and creating recipes, to helping people organise around food-related social causes.
With this in mind I'd like to set up a group to help run the project as a cooperative, to keep it sustainable and help realise its potential.
If you're interested in helping, please let me know - no experience required, just a desire to help grow our community!
“Physical abuse is normally preceded by verbal violence. When the language of the elites violates the limits imposed by decency, it causes more and more physical violence.
