The “real man” is a post WWI concept of manhood. Back when you worked all goddamn day for a couple of bucks to make your pa’ proud. You stood up when a woman returned to her seat, and did a bunch of other BS that edifies men more than women. I was born in the eighties, my mom sat me in front of MTV for hour after hour so she could run around and do coke, or whatever else. To me “real manhood” is unrelatable, and belongs to a dying generation–also it causes a lot of confusion because I can’t understand why half of you men think the way you do.
