Masculine Toughness

June 29, 2009

No one is saying that a boy with a severed limb should be yelled at for bleeding on the carpet.  Nevertheless, instilling toughness in boys is extraordinarily important.  A masculine toughness is the only foundation upon which a masculine tenderness may be safely placed.  Without a concrete foundation, thoughtfulness, consideration, and sensitivity in men is just simply gross.
