Toxic masculinity is just as destructive as we think it is—to society and men alike. But author and professor Nancy Pearcey's data shows more of the whole story: of the power of a great dad and a good man to change their corner of the world. As a little girl, I looked up to my dad so much. I was the youngest of four, but I can remember being scared of the dark, and I ran into my parents' bedroom. I would snuggle in between my mom and dad, and I remember my dad would put his arm around me and I would feel so protected, and then my little head would move into his rib, and I could feel and hear his heartbeat. I felt so cared for and protected. I loved my mom. I had a great relationship with my mom, but there was something about my dad that made me feel safe. I always wanted his attention. I wanted to be seen by him because he was so important to me. -- Ann Wilson
