Wow. You have just declared the basic tenants of the man box and assigned a submissive role in that model of manhood for women as well. Which is likely fine for millions of men. But it’s a terrible fit for millions more. Not to mention the women of the world. It precludes leadership for women, men as caregivers, collaborative models of organizational leadership, gender fluidity and Lord knows how many millions of alternative masculinities that, up until now, have been brutally shamed and violently suppressed in support of traditional ideas of manhood. There is no one right way to do manhood. There never has been.
