Neverender, your comment confuses me.

By your definition, a man is a person who is not easily offended, who is not wounded or distracted by petty insults such as the term “sissy,” and who is willing to continually, throughout their entire life, commit to sacrificing their own happiness and wellbeing on behalf of the ones whom they love, proactively shielding their family from potential attacks and catastrophes, and standing strong and confident even when it is not comfortable or convenient to do so.

By these measures, my mother is a man.
