'Men, women are different'

Print Article

"Snips and snails and puppy dog tails, that is what little boys are made of"; "little girls are made of sugar and spice and everything nice" which is only to affirm again that boys and girls, men and women are different.

Obviously we are physically different but we are also genetically different, develop differently, and at a different rate and perceive the world differently. We are different emotionally, psychologically, mentally and in terms of purpose and mission in life. The whole point here, is identity; who we are as a person. This is essential to our stability, our behavior, our values and our character.

Now comes yet another feminist attack to change men into being more like women. This group even masquerades as a "men's group" but is in fact a "voice for women" and for groups like the Stateline Community Foundation. The latter group is in itself by default an anti-male organization. Just ask them why they fund programs for girls but never for boys; e.g. leadership conferences. The same question can be asked of the Boys and Girls Club. In any case, the answers to today's interpersonal conflicts is not in continuing the decades old angry attacks and devaluation of men. If you want more violence and confusion in society then continue to dilute masculinity, marginalize men, develop a hybrid, amorphous gender and force men into a 3rd breast status.

No, the answer is in the recognition and respect of our differences. Knowing who I am needs to be distinct and solid and reinforced by my experiences and by others. The fluidity of choice and experiment is a recipe for confusion and interpersonal conflict. The answers for a healthy society, a healthy individual and healthy inter gender relations really does begin with who - pink or blue.
