Being a man is still necessary in today’s world. But these days, being a man means more than muscles and beer. Being a man includes caring: for your partner, for your family, and for others around you. To be a man, one must be thoughtful, be there for others, and be willing to admit when one is wrong. Being a man means caring for yourself and your appearance, and knowing what you want. You learn from failure. You cultivate a unique sense of yourself, but you still listen. And lastly, you aren’t wrapped up in strict gender roles.
