    See there's your problem, that's not a man. I don't care if he is a MALE by birth. He is not a man.

      This is the best argument I've heard to support the idea the gender is a social construct.... And the lady on the right side of the picture might agree with us.

        Well, I surely don't support encouraging people to incorrectly believe they are a different gender than their birth and chromosomes tell them, people are free to live how they want.

        I would strongly make the point though that manhood must be inferred, or imbued, by other older men, usually our fathers and uncles and mentors. Manhood is a right-of-passage that one attains, who knows when truly, but as a concept we used to understand this. Today, manhood is seen as dangerous and hostile. But in reality it is something that should be a gift to society, something seen as good and strong and positive. Somehow, it got twisted and certain "males" would now rather self identify with feminine images and roles and with females themselves.
