7 Things I wanted to tell the boys at school.
Q: It is easily aroused, can maintain an erection, make a female pregnant and can hold its own in a fight. What is it?
A: It is probably a dog.
Q: It is easily aroused, can maintain an erection, make a female pregnant, and cannot resist its need for sex. What is it?
A: It is a dog.
Neither of the statements in the questions above defines a man. Having sex does not make a boy a man, it makes him a boy having sex. Dogs can have sex. Rabbits can have sex. Snails can have sex. If you want to be more than a dog, more than a rabbit, more than a snail; if you want to be a MAN you need to be capable of much more than having sex.
A well-trained dog understands the word ‘no’. You are less than a dog if you do not understand the word ‘no’.
If you can get a girl to do something she really does not want to do, it does not make you a man, it makes you an abuser, and an abuser is worthless and despicable.
You will never amount to anything, never ever be a real man, unless you can respect yourself, and you can only respect yourself if what you do, every day and to everybody, is worthy of respect.
Be able to like yourself. Then, maybe, you will become a man.
