I think of a man as being capable of anything because their actions are generally related to their ego and/or low self esteem.
Although women can be unpredictable, they don't go around to r*ape and beat up people at any given time. Women even have restrictions on their freedom of movements for safety reasons. Men can just go anywhere and don't have the same worries like women.
You're right, back then, the society had a different view about the value of a man and woman.
However, education is available freely in many countries, therefore, no excuse for men to justify their lack of education and self awareness by saying their is no role model.
Some men grew up without any parents and are a role model to the society and humanity.
agree with you, you are said.
that is true about kids that can grew up without parents ore even without role models are good example for their kids to a good role models.
boys go through a lot of phases in life. peer pressure is among to build their ego. stand up on their own. especially with bullies in their life at school.
team sports go either for boys teach works a team, self esteem be part of a group, or even work in a class or afternoon clubs. outside active with other boys help learn leadership and follow the leader.
men have different ideas about a role models even women has their views of role models , they want look up to.
i am not sure boys understand role models to get self-esteem. you right, role model probably not the best word for it.
both men and women are to something that believe in doesn't hold up to your standards, it's fall off. so a man or a woman exception is lower because if a role model. or someone you look show that they are human.
your values are lower, so does your ego. you found out that you have always have stand up yourself.
a lot of problems of men with the kind of person , they are or they want to be. that come from early age. why men are more frustrate and lash out at women in domestic violence, maybe lack of something. there are some pros and cons, that are there, i don't have a one answer to give you.
