In the ring, a battlefield, different stories, valid of course, also when fighting for the safety of your family.
And now this brings to mind, Fight Club.

You know what? I miss those old movies back in the 80s, 90s, early 00s where the guys talked in a macho bul# kind of way. If you look at most men these days, the metrosexuality and all, is over hyped! Look at how feminine we have become! I'm not saying it is wrong to take care of you in a way it makes you feel good, clean.. but too much? really? then the way society looks at you, if you are let's say a hunter, hunting has always been a virile thing to do, linked to a primal survival instict, deep agression or love for sport, you do feel things you dont usually feel when you hunt, you connect to your ancient roots in a way, but how it is perceived by others, meh. There was a time when men were hailed to be achievers, strong and providers, usually

Well, I am so sorry that you men find life so hard because you can't be destructive and primitive willy nilly.
What ever happened with the idea wanting to EVOLVE as a species? Why do you prefer to act like cavemen? What ever happened to progress?
The violence you wish to have doesn't start and stop with men. It will and DOES become violence against women.
How many times have you felt terribly afraid when doing something SIMPLE like walking down the street or sitting on a train? Probably never, right? No, you have your big strong man muscles, after all.
Why do we prevent bears and lions from roaming the streets? Because they are harmful to others. Men should not strive to harm others like viscous animals, and they shouldn't feel bad about being prevented from doing so either.
Men need to learn how to understand their emotions more fully. Violence and anger are almost never the solution to problems. Anger is usually an emotion that is confused with other emotions, and violence is a result of this misinterpretation. Men need to learn to cry. There is really nothing wrong with crying. Honestly, crying feels good and doesn't hurt a fly. Win, f--king, win. Oh, but I am sure you find eyes leaking fluid to be oh so offensive and emasculating.
Anti-woman threads are way too common here. FYI, feminism is basically dead. The "waves" are receding and believe it or not, things have gotten much worse for women over the past few years. Example, abortion. After decades, no one will just let it go.
But so sorry that you feel you can't be who you "naturally" are. I wonder what it is like to be so oppressed? Oh wait....
