Most Attractive Men
|Walk a mile in her shoes|
Purely my opinion, but I can't think of anyone sexier than a man who can show respect and compassion for things (whatever it may be) without feeling embarrassed. It could be for racism, feminism, animal rights or even for environmental causes.
Society has limited both men and women in their abilities and willingness to express their emotions - women who express their feelings are too "naggy", "sensitive", "clingy"; men who express their feelings are "girly", "gay", and just plain "weird".
Well, why do we let other people define who we are in some meaningless categories?
In my opinion, being "manly" doesn't mean being physically and emotionally tough - especially when the idea of emotional toughness is being emotionally challenged as a lot of men are in our society. Being "manly" is just being a "male" (however you distinguish genders) but that's it. I know men feel sad, rejected, upset, and scared. So why are they taught to deceive us into thinking they don't? What do they get out of it? Absolutely nothing! They are no longer able to freely express how they feel; They have to constantly tell themselves the same lies over and over again: "I'm a man, I'm tough. I don't cry, that's what girls do".
Being "girly" doesn't mean anything, either. Do we have to wear a skirt and heels, say "aww" when we look at puppies, and shave ourselves silly to look like 10-year-olds, dye our hair and just cake on shit loads of makeup, in order to pass as a girl?
I don't know how this has gotten this far, but can we put some sense back into our society now and unlearn all the crappy things like this?
I want to live in a place in which a man can cry freely when he feels sad, and show empathy and sympathy for things. Men like that are so rare today that they stand out as if they're aliens. But hey, at least they stand out in a good way, at least in my eyes.
Of course, there are things I want improved for us women, too, but that's a whole 'nother story.
