“Down through history men have always been measured by how hard they work and cultivated, how well the protected their wife and children. In the old days, women saw their man as conquerors, providers, heroes. But somewhere along the line that change, women started to become their own heroes, maybe it was because their man forgot to be relic or because women don’t want to be protected anymore or maybe women had to be their own heroes because of the pain they had to endure in life. But whatever the cause, the world took away a man’s reason for being a man. It told him he wasn’t important anymore and when that happened, it turn the whole world upside down” – Dave Johnson, Not Easily Broken.
Initially, men were made to be pro-creators, the head of the home; to love, to protect and to provide. Roles have slowly changed as women empowerment is a roaring concept that has the entire globe trotting. In my opinion, men, in their quest to prove their masculinity and of course the raging rise of technology and modernization, forgot the primary principle of what makes a man. Being a man is hard, that I agree with.
At what moment does a woman decide she has had enough? At what moment does it become okay for a man to forgo his responsibilities and let a woman take charge. In all versions of creation, a man always comes first. Don’t get me wrong, I am a feminist, and I love the concept of equality, but the world has actually turned upside down. The moment a man decided its okay to be a deadbeat dad, it’s okay not to provide for his own, its okay not to proclaim, as nature would have it, this became a necessity for the females. Necessity is the mother of invention, women had needs, they found a way to fend for themselves.
I call it basic evolution. We grew losing the ‘gene’ to depend. Women picked odd jobs, we became comfortable dreaming, working, achieving and we’re kicking ass at it. We became okay with demanding for what we wanted and actually going after it. We did not choose to become ‘rebels’ to societal norms but men failed us and at that point revealed a whole world of possibilities.When a woman finally loses the need and dependency on a man, things change and she adjusts to the art of being there for herself. Along the way she discovers passion and sets her eyes on other things; families deteriorate and what the whole concept of who’s the head shatters.
Isn’t it funny how men need women who can participate in getting the rent, to settle some bills, yet expect the same women to pop up babies, take care of their homes and make sizzling hot dinners by 7 pm and still pleasure them, yet incidentally we are the weaker sex? We know we are superhuman, but please make a choice. In this generation, a woman is an ultimate creature, we have become strong and literary have liberal opinions. We found freedom to participate in our own choices and thoughts; something dangerously powerful. We are phenomenal!
There’s more to being a man than just being a man.
