Gary Gulman: The Great Depresh (2019) | Narrow Masculinity (Clip) | HBO

I grew up at a time the definition of manhood
was so narrow, you were either Clint Eastwood
or you were Richard Simmons. -There was…
-(AUDIENCE LAUGHS) …nothing in between. There were no Paul Rudds. (LAUGHTER, LIGHT APPLAUSE) No kind-eyed Mark Ruffalos.
You had to be so hard! And millennials, they’re
so accepting of each other, and they feel safe coming out
to each other in high school, even junior high. I have to be honest with you.
In 1987, I didn’t feel safe
ordering a Sprite. (LAUGHTER) This will sound nuts
but Sprite… amongst the men of my community, was considered
a woman’s beverage. (LAUGHTER) (APPLAUSE)
