Deep Secrets reveals the false story we tell about boys, friendships, and human nature. Niobe Way argues that boys experience a “crisis of connection” as they approach manhood. Human needs and capacities are given a sex (female) and a sexuality (gay), and thus are discouraged for those who are neither.
