October 24, 2020 - Biden Campaign Offers Alternative Model of Masculinity

WWE champion Dave Bautista endorses Biden in an ad titled “That’s Toughness” where Bautista argues that toughness is not proven by bullying, but is instead shown in Biden’s ability to unite people, work out disputes, and fight for Americans. This provides an example of how Biden and his surrogates were more likely to present alternative models or definitions of toughness less tied to dominant masculinity than were Trump and his surrogates.
