Masculinity and emotional moments

By Chloe Angyal

Just as I had hoped, Joe Biden's emotional moment last night has got a lot of people talking about fatherhood and masculinity. What does it mean for American fatherhood when a VP candidate identifies as a single parent, deliberately defying the stereotype of uninvolved or absent fathers? What does it mean for American manhood when that same candidate gets choked up on national television?
These are all important questions, ones I hope more people will be thinking about in the aftermath of last night's debate. The WSJ's Juggle talks about it here.
