Just a quick well, update I guess.
I know we've had some sort of argument a few months back.
Looking back I may have been over aggressive on this one.
To put it plainly I was offended by your applying universals to your own choices. Though I do understand of course what you meant.
I tend to get ticked off when people say 'disguting' for something that disgusts them or 'real man' to define what they want to be.
I know women like protectors and all that stuff, it's kinda biological anthropology/life experience 101.
However I don't think that gives anyone the right to state that somehow makes other men inferior.
Let's face it, women are often not subjected to this sort of things.
Why is it ok to call a man a 'fake' man while calling a woman the same is kinda akin to committing thought crime and being a horrible monster?
I do believe that men are subjected to quite alot of social pressure, while it's nothing to cry or write home about it's not helping.
Nowadays there's a real trend of guys who don't want to marry for example. Why is that?
Because they don't see the benefits in it: traditional gender roles, still very much alive despite what the thought police wants us to believe compounded with (the positive) changes in women's rights in the 20th century mean that nowadays while a guy is still expected to be the breadwinner (it's generally seen as optional for women - ie: noone will call a woman a loser and a 'fake woman' if she prefers to watch tv at home and cook meals rather than work 70 hours a week -- The opposite is not true, a man will be stigmatized the vast majority of the time for making the same choice)
In summary: It's my opinion that assigning belittling tags to a large number of other people of your own gender is certainly not going to resolve anything
