Men no longer have a space to just be men. There are no men’s only gyms. The Boy Scouts are now just The Scouts. And the barber shops, the last refuge you can find a male only space, are few and far between.
Try to find them yourself, google will happily bombard you with articles on why it’s wrong and evil to exclude women. They will claim that there are plenty of male only spaces, but if you actually look for one. You will find that they are practically non-existent.
Maybe this is a lost cause. I don’t want to knock girl only groups or gay meet ups. I just think that men shouldn’t be demonized for having their own space.
This is Orange County, there are no places where men can workout without women around other if not alone. It seems like no one cares because anyone who speaks up about it gets called derogatory labels and shouted down.
It’s no surprise that modern men lack positive male role models, and growing numbers don’t even have fathers. Yet we continue to go at it alone.
I don’t think we need to talk about our emotions or how to pick up chicks. I just think it would be nice to have a place where men can get together and do the unthinkable, be men.
