Welcome to the public square. This is our welcoming tribe dedicated to introducing yourself, meeting new people, and learning about new tribes.
I've noticed a big part of our public discourse is a fight between a pragmatic, analytical view of known details versus the "authority" on the subject. It makes the argument impossible to follow because one side always relies on "trust me" instead of a detail of mechanism.
Masculinity is cultural, relative, and individual.
When something is cultural, it is at least somewhat collectively defined.
When something is relative, it loses meaning outside the proximate context it was created in.
When something is individual, it cannot be transmuted from one person to the other.
