Before you throw yourself on the ground in protest, this isn't a post about gender politics or any other such social justice topic.
This is a post about being a man.
Maybe you'd agree that masculinity is being redefined while traditional concepts of masculinity are being called toxic.
I'm writing this blog post to add my two cents to the conversation. I don't get much traffic to this blog, so I doubt that it will be met with any controversy.
I welcome dialogue, and am not interested in a diatribe or monolog.
The following bullet points are what I hold up as masculine values. These are basic things men in my generation would’ve learned from their Grandfathers. These are also values that many women I've known report they appreciate in a man.
These are not ranked in order of importance, they are my values and I am writing them out as they come to mind.
That is all for now.
