Men, what is going on these days in the USA and the West as it is called? Is there an attack on men? On masculinity? It seems that to be a man is not the optimal gender to be. Oh, can I even say that or do I offend some groups?
I blame the men! Yes, the men. What has become of us? Our young men have been so trained to supplicate to women that when they grow up, they bow down to them just to get their approval. They are taught from birth that they need the favor and approval of women. And yes, they do need love and nurturing from their mothers of course to survive. Without mom they would die. “Thus, the importance of women in this world.”
Where are the men that balance out this approval seeking? The child needs a male, masculine role model in the home! The problem now is that fathers are few and the few that are in the home have been emasculated by the involvement and power of the court system in the family. Anyone who has gone through a divorce or 2 with children can testify to that. I have gone through my fair share.
Once again, men have allowed this to happen. What is the solution? One man at a time, We older men need to stand up and mentor these younger ones. They need strong masculine role models. MEN! Real men who are not afraid of being called a misogynist for being traditional! I have been called that more than once. These weak men are the ones supplicating to women’s demands about equality to the point that there is no equality for men anymore. Men have all the responsibility and no authority within the family. The breakdown of the family is the beginning of the breakdown of a nation.
This is no more obvious anywhere than in the USA. 50% divorce rate with 70% initiated by the women. Then, we have women asking where can they find a real man? Rare they are indeed but this need not be. I am asking all men of age and wisdom to find a man of youth and mentor him. These are kids that are scared and without direction or guidance. It is up to us to help them or they are lost. Join me in this mission!
I see it firsthand as I have 6 kids, 5 boys and a daughter, ages 13 to 21 I have raised alone for the past 11 years. Their friends are many. Some of which have no fathers or mothers. Others, their parents overdosed and are both dead. Still others, whose parents are in jail on drug charges, not getting out for quite some time. This is a real need.
I appreciate the opportunity Mark Davis has given me to share my thoughts on this and ask the masculine strong men in the world to step up. The real meaning of stepping up and being a man is to pass on what has been passed on to you. Thus, leaving a legacy that endures for generations to come. Thank you.
