Some thoughts on manhood….

What does it mean to be a man in the modern world?

First, the harsh reality is we live in a feminist and effeminate culture.

It certainly hasn’t always been that way and not too far in our distant past, masculinity was celebrated.

Navy

Strength, honor, courage, self-reliance, and duty were virtues universally instilled by our elders, neighbors, teachers, grandparents and parents to all young men.

However today, whenever masculinity rears its head, there are those who seek to deny and repress it.

Will manly virtues taught during those simpler times ever return?

Is it an era that is gone forever?

I don’t think so.

We don’t need to reinvent manliness.

We just need to wake-up and reclaim the dream from the last several generations.

All you have to do is look straight and see the road, and when you see it, don’t sit looking at it – walk. There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    This society is clearly over-estrogenized, literally and figuratively.

    kerbey,

    I agree.

    I am also hopeful it will eventually turn around and we will all be better off.

    …..and by the way….cool new photo you have there.

    I totally agree with the premise. I wish I had an answer, but it seems however we turn, an honest man is confronted with the error of his ways on a constant basis. I actually have been verbally attacked for opening a door or yielding a cab to a woman. Sad, but I have to keep trying.

    Great post, even better question,,,

    Instead of celebrating the good between our gender differences, we proceed with caution on just about every avenue. Regarding manliness, this past weekend [Feb22] Dave Barry had a parody on that subject in the Wall Street Journal Weekend Edition. Read it and pass it on if only for a good chuckle here and there.
