Case in point, I'm sitting in a waiting room for a blood draw. It's first come, first served. Man walks in and asks if I'm having blood drawn and adds his name under mine. Woman walks in and I saw her putting her name at the top of the list above us both. That's a crappy move that I'd not excuse from either gender, but IME I see women pull it all the time.

What irks me is that there are so few good male role models out there. Or perhaps, the good role models are tired of having to struggle against undoing the damage that so many young men have undergone. Women want good men, but they have neither the teachings, coachings, nor skills to live up to the expectations. I'm seeing more supportive programs out there to help. I hope it's not too late.
I do know, whar Is com frum, a male would be looked down upon for making anything out of what

she did. Another guy doing it, he must call him out. A female is expected to let a guy and

call out another female. I know that's how it is in my life and pop's from what he shared with me.

There are very few positive male role models for kids today. Most are skiddish and dull,

treating / expecting their W to be their mother, or the modern day "wanna be Billy Bad A$$es" who

when they don't get their way, smack around the female or just -pop a cap in someone's arse-

Real or imaginary... people like to have something to believe in. People once believed in the church,

their M, their family. If you read this board.... all three are eroded away.

Edit: Also reminds me a LOT of the chapter "Men without Chests" from CS Lewis, Abolition of Man.

Some of the fault lies in the idea that any man who volunteers to work with youth or children is under suspicion of pedophilic exploitation. In short we have decided as a society NOT to have male role models and mentors.
Business friend knew Director of Schools a couple counties away. I applied for teaching position.

DoS wanted me to coach as well, was glad to. Softball.... "I will have a female assistant right?"

DoS said probably not. The teaching job was tied to being the coach as well.

I backed out of the deal and even the W (at the time) said she would have climbed my arse

if I took it without a female assistant. Is this right? No but it is the way it is. Oh... the guy who did

get the position.... resigned in his first year. No one knew why.
