Caring for our veterans, particularly those suffering from PTSD, is undoubtedly an important issue. However, a conversation around mental health shouldn't overshadow men's violence against women and children. More concerning, shifting the narrative towards mental health and further away from men's violence make it even more difficult to hold perpetrators of similar acts of violence accountable.

When it comes to Movember and men's health, the focus has typically been on prostate and testicular cancer. However, there is another common male medical condition that has been relatively overlooked: depression. Clinical depression is a costly and debilitating condition that affects approximately five per cent of the Canadian population in any given year, and 10 per cent of Canadians over the course of a lifetime.

There is a belief, especially prevalent among academics, that certain groups of men are running society for their own benefit. However the statistics may tell a different tale. The government, as well as society, has a duty to take action to help disenfranchised men.

That men have higher rates of addiction than women do is not surprising, as men's social and emotional experience is rooted in what could be regarded as an abusive system which gives men only one emotional outlet (anger) and social expectations to uphold a masculine tradition that serves only the antiquated system that created it.

We hear a lot about women’s fashion and beauty woes. Some say the bra is the most uncomfortable garment ever created and that putting makeup on every morning can be a real nuisance. But what about th...

As the secret association of men-in-small-cars continues to grow, Mini looks to accelerate with a new Cooper that combines the heart and soul of Mini, with the needs of the modern man. The 2016 Mini Clubman S -- to some, dubbed as the modern man's Mini -- brings new features while staying true to Mini's core buyers. As a men's lifestyle writer, it's only fitting to get behind the wheel to see how well it stacks up.

I am invested in this issue because women are my relations. I'm a dad, a son, a husband, a brother-in-law, and thinking, sentient member of the human race! The reasons this keeps happening cannot be solely blamed on the legal system; they start at home. There is a profound sickness within a society that would allow men to perpetrate violence against women with virtual impunity. What is it within men that we see women with so little regard? Too many men don't think there is a problem.

From February 20 to 26, I volunteered for the fourth season of Toronto Men's Fashion Week (TOM*) and helped out on the model relations team. It was as intense as it was incredible, and the seven days spun before my eyes like a top.

The design is clean, sleek and inviting. It discusses emotional content without emasculating the reader in a very cool, practical way. It's an electronic representation of talking to your best buddy who knows a few things about mental health.
Boys and young men often erect a front of dominance, control, even aggression, because they believe that is what is expected of them. That toxic culture has tragic consequences. In Canada, the male suicide rate is three times that of women. Boys are three to five times more likely to drop out of high school than girls.

After 20 years of dating and over 100 relationships later, I have created "The Milk and Bone Theory." Take a close look at the behaviour of cats and dogs, notice which qualities you share with both animals. You will most likely have commonalities with one more than the other. Here are five ways to tell if you are a cat or a dog in a relationships.
We can distinguish the reasonable men in our lives from the unreasonable men, simply by observing their reactions to our expressions of anger, displeasure or frustration toward them. A reasonable man is willing to take responsibility for his part in things; he'll accept our feedback and will make every effort to accommodate our needs.
over the years and through a lot of bad encounters and relationships, I adapted and went from sweet and innocent to sexy vixen with an edge. Now that I am in a happy and committed relationship, I have some valuable advice for all of those single girls out there. I wish I had this kind of wisdom when I was on the hunt for my Prince.

Over the years, at Just For Laughs and Airborne Mobile, I've never been a major fan of focus groups for multiple reasons; most notably because the people gather to tell you exactly what they figure you want to hear. But in this group the men said things to try to appear smart. The women said smart things.

Today is International Men's Day, so let's join hands today and celebrate all that men have done for the world. Wow, I couldn't even type that with a straight face. But International Men's Day? Seriously? Every day is International Men's Day, or really International Cisgender Men's Day. Every day the achievements of men are celebrated. Every day their innovations are hailed. What's next? International White People Day? International Heterosexual Day? I'm sure some of you would love that.

I started by telling you about my own experience in the world of abuse. I did this because those experiences are what helped me understand the importance of healing in light of a frightening situation. These women -- our sisters -- need our support and understanding to heal. But we cannot forget the men. At some point we are going to have to turn around and help heal this man. Many will think he is undeserving, but he too experienced trauma in his life which he has had to cope with. I'm not talking about forgiveness, I'm talking about compassion.
The requirements for the capacity to marry are quite low and, in particular, not as onerous as the level of capacity required to execute testamentary documents. Therefore, theoretically, someone who does not have the requisite capacity to execute a will can have the capacity to marry. In Ontario, marriage has the effect of revoking a will in most cases.
Choosing what to see if always a bit daunting, as it's hard to squeeze 341 films into the span of two weeks. So to help you prepare your VIFF viewing schedule, here's five films I wouldn't miss.
Sometimes it isn't the government that's to blame for back door deals. Back in 1869, two wily financiers, Jay Gould and James Fisk, thought they could outsmart the government and corner the gold market, but were foiled by the administration. Gould and Fisk tried to buy massive amounts of gold at a low price and then sell high using insider information.
Dear proud men who have taken a woman's "No" to sexual activity, touching, or intercourse as a "Yes" instead of respecting her wishes; to men who have taken advantage of an intoxicated or blacked-out...
I'm not personally a proponent of cohabitation before marriage. If you asked for my advice, I'd tell you not to. There's plenty of empirical research out there to suggest that it might not be the greatest idea. But you don't need to reduce men to sex-starved lunatics (or women to desperate shells who will whither and die if they don't get a ring) to get your point across.
If we as a society could decide that appearances were equally important to men as to women, that would be an important step in levelling the playing field at work. Trust me guys you won't regret the move. Consider it progress.
A piece titled "Why Chivalry Is Dead, From a Man's Perspective," tweaked me. The thing about the norm is, it changes. All the time. It evolves. Personally, ladies of my life, I will continue to hold the door for you, I will continue to bring you soup when you have a cold, and I will always strive to do something nice for you just because it's a Wednesday. And yes, I'd like to treat you to dinner. But I won't do it for the sake of some outdated ideological battle and I won't do it just because you're a woman.
The term "gender gap" carries a negative connotation but there is one category where many women may be willing to be under-represented: corporate crime. A new study revealed that corporate crime is largely the domain of men. So does this mean that increasing the number of women at the top would make for a more honest and ethical organization?
Sometimes it's important to slow down, take a breath and realize what is actually going on around us. Especially when it comes to relationships, we can lose sight of our love in the day-to-day madness of our career-driven lives. Here are a few simple, quick things you can do to let your girlfriend know you keep her at the top of your list.
Cheating is about one thing, and that's the transgressor's inability or unwillingness to reconcile the feeling of love with the decision to love. Feeling love is easy, because it's a largely chemical affair. But, once we cross that bridge into a serious, committed monogamous relationship, those feelings aren't enough. The decision to love is another matter entirely, and one that many cannot come to terms with.
Flexible hours, a term that has almost become code in the workplace for women searching to accommodate both their professional life and childcare, is granted more often to women than men, right? Think again. Researchers from Yale, Texas and Harvard found that managers actually grant requests for flexible work schedules to men more often than women.
While some facial hair can be sexy, most men these days opt not to grow a full beard, as the barbarian look isn't exactly a girl-magnet. Shaving, however, comes with a few problems of its own. And here, to make shaving issues a thing of the past, is our guide to the most common facial hair problems and solutions.
Relationships are messy, and sometimes love sucks. You won't always be 22 and carefree and riding on a train through Europe, wondering if you should doodle in your journal or take a nap. The movie Before Midnight understands that long-term love never comes easy, and romance isn't always about long walks in a Viennese park.
I'm a big supporter of not settling for contentment when genuine happiness is attainable. It's kind of what I base my life on. Don't settle. Be happy. In actuality, the grass isn't always greener. If you're like me, and I'm sure all too many of you are, do yourself a favour and realize this.
