This is a safe place where men can be men… your OWN man. We’ve become a nation of volunteers for code enforcement gone bad: An army of judgemental code enforcement men that decides who gets a Man Card and who’s Man Card gets “revoked.”
The examples will never end but let’s start with Hooters. It’s offensive to women to look at them like objects to be possessed instead of being loved. Does that make me a wimp and invite ridicule that I refuse to eat at Hooters?
I too am a recovering Man Card Code Enforcer. I used to snicker at men who wore Crocs until I put a pair on. I’ve worn them ever sense …even with camouflaged pants… and I love it. It makes me happy and I had an epipiphy. I realized I was brainwashed with institutional manliness (not trademarked yet, free to use) where I made fun of other men without thinking WHY. I heard Crocs were for girls and never thought for myself. I’m a free man and you can be free too.
