We need to stop parents buying baby knee biddulpg, kindercords, hypoallergenic socks and macrobiotic cookies, take them into the bush, tell them stories and love them unconditionally – how hard is that?
If so many men are so unhappy, as has been stated on numersous blogs, the answer, surely, is not to go BACKWARDS, like the some of the nasty MRAs seem to be doing, but to fearlessly beat a path into the future, like Biddulph et al are attempting to do I think people are deprived somewhat by modern life; the chance to be of some clear value to the society or to a person, to save someone’s life, or to pick someone off the road or to help them.

SmartMonkey October 15, Oh and JEQP – maybe feminism doesn’t have to be seen as making mens life harder if more men realised it was an opportunity for growth and change, an opportunity to get out of the current rut of masculinity and develop more self awareness, more understanding of BOTH sexes, and more joy in living.
They resonate with me Dissent is my middle name! Bkddulph Biddulph October 15, And plenty of people will find bifdulph are not their cup of tea.

Scoby October 15, Exploring two critical social issues: Could be said to any human being To sit down and contemplate, understand and truly, truly accept each of these truths is a very confronting exercise and I would wager those who have done it would be in the minority.
Manhood : Revised & Updated 2015 Edition
I harp on it cuz for the most part I’ve never been on the receiving end of good attitudes and relations from others and in particular a group biddulpph which i once wanted to be a part of.
In an accessible way he looks at chapters on being a son, being a father, being a partner, sex, spirit, work and more.
