Quote from: Steven WinterburnBefore you diagnose yourself with depression or low self-esteem, first make sure that you are not, in fact, just surrounded by assholes.
Quote from: Ranquil on October 19, 2013, 10:42:10 amMy point is that everyone should be equal, regardless of sex or mental characteristics that are generally considered manly or womanly. And being a pushover shouldn't be resented only on men.

Quote from: Blizzard on October 19, 2013, 12:12:55 pmKeep in mind one thing: Men are men and women are women. Of course there are individual differences and some may be more or less masculine or feminine, but that isn't the point. Just like you can't stop a cat from being a cat, you can't stop a man from being a man or a woman from being a woman. Men and women are not equal, they are equivalent. A penis does not equal a vagina. But a penis has the same "value" as a vagina. Rather than trying to enforce some sort of equality on everybody, we should make sure that we enforce equivalency and treat them equivalent. The difference between these two terms is huge.The point isn't the make one gender seem less than the other, but to embrace our differences and strength to complement each other rather than fighting about trivial things about who's better at what.Before someone starts being defensive with "But I am just sensitive!", they should first reconsider who they truly are and whether they are just hiding behind a facade of weakness to get pity and other secondary emotional payoff rather than cutting the bullshit and embracing their true self (lol, I am saying this as if one could do that just like that and doesn't require years of self-development). I'm not saying that everybody does it, but a majority of the people sadly does it. And who's to say that you can't be empathic and manly? These are not mutually exclusive. I think the "pussy" vs. "sensitive" argument from before is a very good explanation of this from another perspective.EDIT: Manliness is not about being physically strong or showing off or stuff like that. Manliness is about the strength of mind, willpower and confidence.How did the saying go? A rich man doesn't have a need to tell everybody that he's rich. The same goes for a masculine man. A masculine man doesn't need to prove himself to anyone. But on the flipside, a true man also understands his weaknesses and shortcomings. He does not try to hide them, but he actively works on fixing/improving them if he can.
