"Victor Victoria" IRL
|Uh, sorry mate, you're not convincing anyone|
We know it's tough to be male, but we get on with the challenge of being male anyway, because that is what and who we are.
For women, however, this is something of a shock to discover because for the better part of a century now, they've been taught that men are the aggressors and women are the victims; they've never had to stop and think for a moment that maybe men act like we do because this is what we're supposed to be.
|Might as well be called "The Seven Virtues of Manliness"|
And we absolutely must keep our darkest urges for violence and and our most destructive impulses at bay- not without reason is it argued that civilisation is essentially a veneer of order over chaos, and for that same reason, civilisation is built by men, not women.
Indeed, I think the best articulation of this urge that I have ever seen comes from Frost's book, Freedom Twenty-Five, in which he had this to say:
Throughout history, men have created masterpieces, advanced technology, and built empires with energy fuelled by their subconscious hind-brain desire to put their penises inside vaginas and move them around until they make a mess. The world we live in is no more than the extended phenotype of our horny ancestors.
