    “What we can do is teach our young boys and young men that being emotional and empathetic are part of “being a man.” That “sharing one’s feelings to sort out one’s problems” is a masculine trait. We need some new definitions of “manly” so our boys can express and know their full selves, not just the culturally accepted “extremes” that predominately exist today.”

    Lovely quote from one of the articles above.

      i sent that one in- i LOVE it. a friend of a friend who is like a super-feminist (women studies major, works with various women’s organizations, always posts womens rights stuff, ect- not in a bad way lol) posted it.

      its so true, shooting or not! i see it so commonly in guys, even in ones i know.. and im not really friends with the uber-‘merica good ole boys, you know? its sad. and if it keeps going like this, we are going to have a pretty shitty new generation of men. as always, extremes arent good.
