What Makes a Man

I’ll tell you what makes a man. It’s got nothin’ to do with what’s between a person’s legs. That’s crazy. Being a man, or a woman has absolutely nothing with what’s between a person’s legs.

I’ll tell you what it means to be a man. A man is a person, who at some point in their life was told by another person, maybe a parent, a sibling, a relative, a co-worker, or even a boss. A man is a person who at some point in their life, was told by another person, “Hey! Nobody gives a fuck about you.” And it sunk in.

On that day, when another person tells a person, that no one in this whole world gives a fuck about them. On that day, when that said person hears that, and it finally sinks in. On that day. Said person becomes a man. On that day. Said person “grows a pair”.

A woman is just a person, who still thinks that people are obliged to care about them. That’s all a lady is.
