About Beard Reel
Hello and welcome to the Beard Reel.
This blog is dedicated to exploring all the many ways men and boys are represented in the media, including television and movies, both good and bad.
Read our posts to learn about the many ways masculinity is portrayed in the mass media. You might even find out about some stuff that is actually worth watching. Men are often shown in a negative light in western film and television and here we will see how and maybe even find out why.
We will also explore the good, seeking out positive male figures and examples of good relationships between men and women.
Finally, we will look deeper at many common themes in the media which have a greater meaning for men than might seem apparent.
Also, while a good bit of face-fuzz is always welcome, the content of this site is not limited to media containing beards.
