The Dead End Roads to Manhood

There’s a plethora of subject-matter out there on feminism. Along comes an article that’s asking questions of masculinity, manhood, and being manly.

How should men live their lives in a time when traditional manhood is not needed, and in many cases not even wanted or respected? Is there any reason to strive to live the manly code if it does not come with societal honor and reward, and if failure to do so carries no threat of shame? Is it possible to conceive a manhood that stays true to the past but also offers men a way to move forward?

The author discusses the concept of manhood in modern times when the “traditional manly skills” are no more needed and society is now (fairly) well designed to protect and provide. Great read. Awaiting the next section, now.
