The Chosen Ones, the documentary series from VICE, is taking a fascinating look into American masculinity. Hosted by UK Correspondent Gavin Haynes, the show takes a journey across the United States to analyze how men are redefining what it means to be “macho” in today’s society.
From competitive eating contests to stay-at-home dads challenging traditional gender roles, viewers can expect an exploration of various lifestyles and attitudes towards gender. Haynes interviews many people who are pushing against the conventional definitions of masculinity and who are attempting to redefine it in their own way. His visits range from radical men’s groups to slumber parties in the woods; all while making sure that each perspective is heard.
All in all, The Chosen Ones provides a unique insight into modern day American masculinity and offers great perspective on how our society views gender roles. It’s an important reminder that we should strive for equality between genders and challenge any preconceived notions about them, as well as celebrating other ways of living even if they’re not traditionally seen as “manly”.
