Manhood (or the Lack Thereof) Today

Christopher Taylor of Word around the Net has posted yet another excellent essay, entitled "Unmanned" in which he examines the role of men and masculinity, or the lack thereof, in modern society. He also expresses his ideals of true manhood and examines the different forms of false manhood common today.

It's definitely worth reading, so please click on over to his site.

Interesting read. A lot of it read as common sense to me (which doesn't diminish the value of the article at all), but I don't entirely buy that men should inherently be uncomfortable with some cultural norms simply by virtue of being men.

Common sense is the best kind of sense, I think. But I plan on expanding on what it means to be a man and what men face and struggle with in modern culture, right or wrong, next week.

Some cultural norms are bad for men or troubling, some are neutral but seem like a problem and some are good but men have a hard time with. At the very least, a safe, educated, civilized culture is harder on men than women, but that's not a bad thing.
