"The Writing on the Door"

This morning I read a very interesting article over on The Art of Manliness, and I wanted to make it a point to bring it to your attention.  Go ahead, read the article first then head back here… I’ll wait patiently.

Did you read it?  Well, I hope you did because I think it’s very important, and I’m in complete agreement with the author’s point.  I am FAR from being a classic guy’s guy.  I haven’t an ounce of competition in me, I am known to cry a lot with certain movies, and I don’t enjoy sports.  In fact, I have always had just as many feminine traits as masculine ones – maybe even more.  Haha, and yes – I’m straight ;-).  As much as I am not the average guy, this article still means something important to me – as a man.

One of the comments put it all very eloquently: men and women are EQUAL but not ALIKE.  I know it’s shocking, folks, but men and women are different!  Years and years of attempts to oppress these types of things in people, though, has created a lot of confusion.  Gender issues are really so very simple, but extremes in both directions have caused a nightmare in personal identities.  If you’re already in on this little secret (which should just be common sense), pass this along to someone you know who isn’t – they may have just never been told that it’s really okay to be who they naturally are.  I mentioned my own characteristics earlier, because for years, I too was not sure what it meant to be a man.  It took me years of self-analyzing, soul-searching, and maturity for me to understand the core traits of masculinity, and I know an article like this could have only helped me along.
