@Elvis It seems like the instant one tries to define masculinity it slips away and is no longer masculine. It seems like if one tries to actively seek it, one becomes unmasculine. It seems like if one never tries, he never becomes masculine. It seems like if one places a feeling on it, it becomes unmasculine. Yet we all know something is there (or not there).
@tchower The time I felt my masculinity, where I felt like a MAN was in highschool. It was this moment where all my classmates were heading towards the auditorium. Like a pack of she being herded. I paused and saw them enter in mass. Into this black door, and they disappear.
I looked to my right, through a glass door, to the sun shining in the sky.
I saw two paths: one of conformity and the other individuality
I decided to quickly skid across to the glass door and open it.
I skipped school that day. And took a long walk home, in deep self reflection.
That is when I felt my masculinity.
"What is masculinity?" I'd say the stereotypical version. The image men mostly think of are famous celebrities, soilders, Mafia and fiction characters.
Being "masculine" won't matter if that dosen't make a man happy.
Others Expectations, can create limitations.
A man should seek to be his ideal self. First he was to Invision it, and then go after it.
I was in acting, musicals and I sings a bit. That stuff isn't traditionally masculine. Granted, I don't do it anymore. For the entertainment industry is fucking disgusting.
"Power" is what gives one force. A type of energy that makes you pause.
@Elvis I also wonder if the two genders can also interpret power differently, because men seem to have more virtue in following their and setting forth their own doctrines and principles and sticking to them, whereas, woman do not see power in the ability to follow their own principles and doctrines, but see power in breaking them and enforcing them on others, aka. virtue signaling and the limitless contradictions of feminism and principles of equality on the left.
@Elvis It would be a good question to ask Rollo on his Q&A or at least really ask ourselves what is truly feeling masculine or an alpha in it’s purest form. I think that feeling could also relate to power, and I think power does have many varying definitions and interpretations, is it physical, is it financial, is it social, is resource based, is it sexual, or is it a feeling of an outcome, or just a feeling in it if it’s self? Or in the case of woman these days, is it an ability to make and break the rules and your own? haha
