A real man does not derive his power from chasing women down streets. A real man does not derive validation from female attention, nor does he derive his sense of power from his politician father! A real man treats a woman as an equal and a partner, rather than as an object.
A real man is allowed to feel, to emote, to love, to cry and to have his weak moments. A real man is human, and like all humans he can be both strong as well as vulnerable.
As a result we still have plenty of antiquated simians who ingest liquor till they turn fully into animals; who then derive strength from their juvenile, brash male friends, and in a throwback to their Neanderthal hunting days, chase women down streets. Such men derive power from the fear women feel when in danger of being plucked off the street, violated and even killed….
Always drunk, always with a male friend. Even as gender rules are shifting fast, men find it tough to let go rules of traditional masculinity, behaving in a manner that society women and the more evolved men is increasingly finding intolerable and disgusting! Traditionally men are expected to be strong, dismissive of emotions, in control and independent. The insistence of some men to stick to an anachronistic traditional template of toxic masculinity creates large pockets of discontent and negativity.
It all starts small, with some socially deplorable behavior such as vandalism or shoplifting and some degrading talk against women; some leering, some loose remarks. Times when boys engage in degrading talk about girls and then easily graduate to committing physical violence in its most bestial form on women — just because they can.
And why can they? They can because their parents have been unable to teach them any better. They can because they have misplaced ideas of what being a man means. They can because we do not stop them in time when they first fall into bad company, when they first take to substance abuse, when they utter their first degrading word against a woman! They do because they think they can get away with it. And why do they think they can get away?

There is something seriously wrong with a society that questions its women but lets men go scot free. But, wait a minute! We are no longer such a society. We create loud noise with the help of media! We object. We reject. We question…. And yes, we do have the answers too. Is anyone listening?
Guys, let me be real with you. If this is you, stop it. End the relationship. A real man respects the feelings and dignity of women.
Laziness is plaguing our country…no doubt. But the pursuit of a paycheck is also plaguing our country. A real man is not lazy. He works hard.
But a real man also never allows the almighty dollar to be the purpose for his hard work. How ridiculous.
Boys will be boys, right? A real man doesn't need you to change for him, because he loves you for who you are, whether at your best or your worst. Manhood is defined and decided by the ability to nurture and to protect, by the capability to provide and to sustain. Kim Young-chul and Jung Gyu-woon. What does that mean to you? A man who honors his wife and friends can only do so because he is confident in himself. Lust is sin.
Make no mistake. I love golf. I would play every day if I could. But I also have two kids and a wife. I have a full-time job. I go to school. I have a blog. There are 24 hours in a day. Something must go to the back burner. There are seasons of life where your golf game, fishing, hunting or fill in the blank are going to take a hit. Hobbies are just that…hobbies. They are extra. On the side.
A real man never sacrifices quality time with family or God to nurture a hobby. I just returned from a trip to Las Vegas. My first trip to Las Vegas. It was everywhere.
Women wearing next to nothing begging for the attention of those around. Sensuality and the objectification of women and men were impossible to ignore. For much of my life, I struggled to keep my mind pure. I thought it was just natural. Boys will be boys, right? Church Jobs Shop Subscribe. Sign in. Forgot your password? Get help. Password recovery.
