I love quotes, but as much as I love quotes, I sometimes come across quotes that totally get a black X on them. This happened today when I came across this quote. I just feel it is giving the wrong message! Kind of like the whole “Real men don’t cry” message that goes around which is so wrong! I am very glad that my husband has a sensitive side. Why does society feel the need to label? Not all women love wearing dresses or wearing make up either, does that make them less feminine?
Why is masculinity determined by whether you own a gun? My husband does not need to carry a gun in order to defend and protect my children and I! I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that he will do anything within his power to protect us, even if it means giving his own life. I know his heart. We don’t have guns in our house and we never will, and that doesn’t make him any less of a man. He doesn’t need to hunt in order to be masculine and whatever food is on his plate surely doesn’t determine his masculinity! But all of this is just my opinion. What do you think? I really am interested in hearing your thoughts.
