Engaging men on gender equality | Diversity Council Australia
The most effective ways to engage men on gender equality at work:

Get the foundation right – ensure gender equality initiatives involve women and men as active and equal partners.
Get the framing right – treat gender equality as a business issue, not a women’s issue.
Go wide – make visible and target all key gender equality areas (i.e. paid work, power and decision making, financial security, personal safety, interpersonal work relationships, caring, and community involvement).
Get the messaging right – to appeal to men as well as women.
Engage a diversity of men – including men in different organisational roles and levels, and with a variety of demographic backgrounds (e.g. ages, cultural backgrounds, sexual orientations).
Educate about how to lead change effectively – by resourcing initiatives, being visible and persistent, and ‘walking the talk’.
Make the connection between work and home – by implementing initiatives that encourage gender equality in caregiving.
Make the connection between work and communities – by framing gender inequality as a societal/community problem.
Build individuals’ gender confidence and capability – by providing opportunities for both men and women to change their mindsets, assumptions, and behaviours.
Encourage men and women to challenge and change gender-biased organisational policies and practices.

tim | The Christians and the Pagans: Part 2
from the comments, by yam:

Jesus is a 10X engineer
You may know him as King of the Jews
He's also fond of microbrews
and board games, and venture financiers

Jesus changes water in to wine
He demonstrates this holy grace
On Thursdays at the hackerspace
Unless he's still at work because it's crunch time

Jesus is a software architect
So he's got no time to sugar-coat
The words he vomits from his throat
So he may not be politically correct

You may not know the passion of the Christ
Is for open source and hacking sprees
And disrupting union industries
Ain't it swell to make a living being Nice?

There's a heaven but he can't help you get in it
It's a meritocracy
But just between you and me
Being white and male could help with cultural fit

Am I Man Enough? by Paul Constant - Seattle Features - The Stranger, Seattle's Only Newspaper
Am I Man Enough?
I'm a straight guy with no interest in sports and almost no body hair. What makes a man masculine? The question led me to a doctor’s office, a therapist’s couch, and a drag bar in Tacoma.

McSweeney’s Internet Tendency: Balls Out: A Column On Being Transgendered: Column 16: Gay Stuff! Trans Stuff! Cissies! Femmes! Deer Hunting! Sea Salt! Metrosexuals! Bar Fights!
S: I credit this to one of my sociology professors from undergraduate, "When you meet someone, you may later forget their name, hair color, or even what they sounded like but you never think “Hey, what was their gender again?”

C: Like it’s inseparable from being aware of their existence. And our brains go wonky when we can’t figure out a person’s gender. I’ve been asked “Are you a boy or a girl?” a few times and I’m not a fan of this tendency, but when I see someone whose gender isn’t obvious, I still feel my brain going “BRAAPP BRAAPP FIGURE ‘EM OUT NOW BRAAPP.”
[...] I feel like anybody who tries to come up with a concrete definition of either gender or sexuality usually ends up with their foot in their mouth eventually.
