Today we are in the process of making the English language gender-neutral, and manliness, the quality of one gender, or rather, of one sex, seems to describe the essence of the enemy we are attacking, the evil we are eradicating.
We think being a woman is hard.
But I honestly think being a man is harder.
In a world, political correctness gone mad, men have to think more than twice not to be accused of sexism, racism, misogyny, prejudism, violence or some other thing when dealing with women.
With the rise of feminism, manliness was denigrated and abhorred. Most men had to adjust or were forced to be gentle - men instead of gentlemen. They lost their identity and evolved into something else.
Even here in the virtual world, I see it's men who publicly whine mostly about other blog topics, scammers and bloggers. It's not manly to whine. Men have to be assertive. Have control over themselves and fight or defend and protect themselves and the vulnerable only when threatened.
(Sorry, not trying to teach anyone to be men. Just my opinion and I rightfully like to have it. Thank you)
Women stood up, fought and got to a place where they deemed was right for them. ( Whether women got it right is another topic for another blog.)
Will I die without finding a knight in rustic armour?
I don't mind actually dying without a knight if the Knights came in pink.
Will men fight back to get to their rightful right to be men, manly men with honour and valour ?
Or will they shape their eyebrows, start painting their lips and nails, look pretty and start a hashtag #pink is the new black ?
( P.S. Not really looking for a knight. just wanted to add this picture to my blog and couldn't think of a better way.)
