What does Manhood mean to YOU

Post by cb0208 »

Hi Everyone,

I am a student at Okanagan College, I am working on an article called, "What does 'manhood' mean to you?" Father's Day is coming up. It would be great to get those who wish to have their responses placed in my article then published on my website.

I am taking my question here to Castanet hoping to get responses from all genders. I hope to hear from ALL genders not just men.

Question is: What does 'manhood' mean to you?

You can either private message me if you are more comfortable doing that or answer me on the board. Either way I would like to hear from you.

Thank you and I hope to get some response for my story! Deadline is due June 14, 2021

I'm not sure the term is relevant or exists anymore.
If it does exist still, my definition from 40 years ago would be totally different than what it would be today.
Manhood....or masculinity, are no longer valued as they are not needed in our soft modern world.
Some may view my politically incorrect opinions as harsh and may be offended by them. Some think political correctness will be our undoing. You and 917 others hate this post.

Traditionally? Manhood is when a man takes the burdens of his world upon his shoulders and makes it his mission to provide value and service to the world that birthed him. It meant a welcoming into the brotherhood of the world and all the hardship and respect from carrying that burden.

Nowadays? It means being somehow responsibe for everything but appreciated for nothing. It means going into the world blind without guidance or support but still being told about your privileges and how easy you have it by people who know nothing of what they speak. It means being the universal fallguy for every neurotic activist type beating the gaslit war-drum of the week.

Stability is a illusion... all can be uprooted or lost because of this....

Manhood...it almost seems the very term is a evil thing now as is anything traditionally masculine.
I am a relic of a another time.
This topic....I have typed out a number of paragraphs -all of them I've deleted before posting...It has made me think that maybe I really don't know what it means anymore or what I was taught about it was all wrong.

when I read that term I think about Bodice ripper novels
" his rising Manhood"
I never hear that term used now
You can try and dirty my name, but I'll wear your hate like war paint

I think, we should ask women for the definition.

I think it's when someone transitions from doing childish things and matures into someone who thinks of the consequences of their actions.

No more "Hold my Beer and watch this!" :D

Default setting of manhood since the beginning of time: provide & protect.
