Real Men Must Start Taking Responsibility

2014-04-11 08:22

A man of this new age is basically a despicable version of what he could be, to put it bluntly. Through the adoption of a lustful and domineering culture, he has forsaken balance and set up tent in a raging typhoon. He’s a wandering gambler in his own city, fleeing from robbers and serpents he himself ordained with his spirit.

The abuse on women did not necessarily rise with the psychological plagues of the 20th century, but throughout many traditions and cultures, the role of the woman was often undermined and unappreciated.

At some period in the nature of ignorance and ill-discipline, men justified cheating or ‘secret polygamy’ using the cliched 60 to 40 women-to-men ratio allegation. Only God knows the source and the veracity of this revolutionary study, but quite a few men believed this, and it formed the basis of male promiscuity as we know it.

Based on this, it was alright for men to sleep around but quite slutty and abominable for a woman to do so. But even if it were true that humanity reproduces more females than males, like 60% to 40%, not every man would be a polygamist then. But in reality, every man wants to have more than one woman, which could mean either bad mathematics or greed beyond reason.

Personally I will stamp my blame on the culture I found in this world, where I was drawn to lust through the media enterprise. I’ll definitely charge the western culture of commercialism and border-less liberalism for destroying my soul from a young age. But likewise I will assume responsibility, do my best to change and make sure my children, unlike me, are raised under better moral values.

Traditionally, the man was supposed to go out to work while the woman stayed home looking after the house and raising children. But with the spread of profiteering and infidelity, divorce rates were ever shooting through the charts, and women had to start juggling motherhood with professional occupations.

Slowly and gradually, women had to be accepted in the corporate arena, to be bread winners as well. Besides the fact that men were unfaithful in general, women had to be educated on a large scale, as the demands of this age dictate.

We will remember at some point that European scientists were spreading allegations that women’s brains were smaller and inferior to men’s, much similar to what they claimed about black people’s brains being inferior to white people’s. These misogynist acts only served to keep women subordinate, while men were busy bombing each other to smithereens in the name of civilization. As we now know without reservation, a woman can do anything a man can, and some things even better.

Springing from this pivotal understanding, we can thus review our natural responsibilities with mutual respect. The responsibility I have as a man begins with the desire to learn and to know what is sustainable and what brings peace. The common man is a negative and dull image of his true self, and so has his woman been affected as well.

Upon raising your mental state to finding a true appreciation of a partner, you realize you still have heavy baggage holding you down, in the form of prevalent carnal obsessions. Women too are affected, and our culture doesn’t actively sway away from erotic misconduct. What point is there in abandoning whore houses for a true home but still inviting the same whores to your home?

Our success or failure is based on the kind of environment we create for our offspring, and I think the Media plays a crucial role in this instance. As much as I’m a slave of fornication, due to the experiences of my life, I still have the skill and will to rewrite and recreate a new environment for myself and the next generation.

What men should remember is the way they treat women will always reflect how they actually feel about themselves. The fact that we found the world corrupted cannot be disputed, but the question is what are we to do about it? Do we become part of the problem or the solution, as in the Steve Biko phrase?

Once I found it appealing seeing my favourite rappers with champagne bottles and half dressed women performing prohibited dances on television. But what is this really saying about us and how we see the world and the women who raised us? Maybe it’s time we start portraying reality as we think is sustainable and rightful, rather than how it is. ©
