The Burdens of Manliness....

....as expounded by Mr. Harsh Mander.  Some apt epigrams

1/ For every woman who is tired of acting weak when she knows she is strong, there is a man who is tired of appearing strong when he feels vulnerable.

2/ For every woman who is tired of being called “an emotional female”, there is a man who is denied the right to weep and to be gentle.

3/ For every woman who is tired of being a sex object, there is a man who must worry about his potency.

4/ For every woman who is called unfeminine when she competes, there is a man for whom competition is the only way to prove his masculinity.

5/ For every woman who takes a step toward her own liberation, there is a man who finds the way to freedom has been made a little easier.

I've rehearsed some of these musings as well.
