its about time someone said it. i'm just surprised about the source.
i have seen this ad on a couple blogs written by men, but none of the blogs written by women that i follow, so that it why i am including it here:
the text of the ad says:
"Once upon a time, men wore the pants, and wore them well. Women rarely had to open doors and little old ladies never had to cross the street alone. Men took charge because that’s what they did. But somewhere along the way the world decided it no longer needed men. Disco by disco, latte by foamy non-fat latte, men were stripped of their khakis and left stranded on the road between boyhood and androgyny. But today there are questions our genderless society has no answers for. The world sits idly by as cities crumble, children misbehave and those little old ladies remain on one side of the street. For the first time since bad guys, we need heroes. We need grown ups. We need men to put down the plastic fork, step away from the salad bar, and untie the world from the tracks of complacency. It’s time to get your hands dirty. It’s time to answer the call of manhood. It’s time to wear the pants.”
my favorite part is "...men were stripped of their khakis and left stranded on the road between boyhood and androgyny. But today there are questions our genderless society has no answers for."
wow! i cant agree more. men should be the leaders, the ones who take charge. they were created for this, physically, mentally and emotionally. but in recent history this important role that God created for men has been stomped down by society, and, sadly, by many women.
i want to write more on the importance of women understanding of biblical manhood. but until then, i want to hear from you. women, what are some ways that we can encourage the men in our lives to be biblical men?
