RE: What Does "Being A Real Man" Mean To You?
(08-02-2016 02:13 PM)Heatheness Wrote:  I was watching old Gunsmoke episodes today and a woman was telling a young man the difference between him and his dad was, "He (the dad) was a man." She was making it clear that the young man's act of killing a woman and running away was cowardly and that "real men" would never act that way. That taking ownership of your actions is one mark of a real man.

We often hear about the stereotypical expectations for women and they are hotly debated but I would like to discuss these same expectation for men. The term "real man" is so subjective and yet culturally and socially important to the boys and young men growing up.

For anyone:
What does being a "real man" mean to you?
Do you think that boys are lacking in this training in our current times and culture as opposed to previous cultural and historical times?

Some questions for the men here:
Where or from whom, did you learn to be a man?
Are you still learning, is it an ongoing thing?
Did you have an ideal man that you tried to emulate?
Do you try to teach/share that to other young males/boys?

If you have any other pertinent questions feel free to add them to the discussion.

I find this to be rather manly

For me apparently:
What does being a "real man" mean to you?
It doesn't mean anything. I find that any value/moral/life lesson that is good to learn from a man is equally as valuable as a woman.. thus learning to be a man.. Is just learning valuable things you should know as a human. I think that my opinion on that.

Do you think that boys are lacking in this training in our current times and culture as opposed to previous cultural and historical times?

no because again they are lessons for humans, thus there are no maleness or femaleness besides maybe in your head.
Some questions for the men here:
Did you have an ideal man that you tried to emulate?
some maybe but mainly for their minds... but if we went by the people I wanted to emulate.. probably female badasses.. so no I don't emulate men particularity...

I just think a lesson that what is learnable/valuable for a man is equally as valuable/learnable for a woman... ty and good night... drops the mic....

1. Striding and swaggering rootlessness without end. The precious flow of life.
2. one should fear sweet a blood stained flower.

The difference between prayer and masturbation - is when a guy is through masturbating - he has something to show for his efforts.
