22. MAN ENoUGH?  Man enough to accept ‘No’? It’s not always easy, but you don’t have to make it personal. She may have reasons for saying ‘No’ that have nothing to do with you. She may have beliefs about sex before marriage. She may not be ready for sex in your relationship. Or maybe she’s just not feeling sexy. Respect, self-control and caring about the well-being of others are true measures of a man of strong character. Sex with consent is sexy. Sex without consent is rape. Respect yourself. Respect your partner.

    I REALLY like this one because it directly addresses masculinity and the ridiculous societal pressures that affect them as well.

  2. Elizabeth says:

    This is so true. One of the biggest social problems is peer pressure. It takes a courage not to behave like the rest of the crowd – to risk being ostracised and mocked for not embracing aggressive behaviour. It takes a real man. Remember that you’re not born a man, you become one – by your actions and your beliefs. And real women want real men.

    ‘She may have reasons for saying ‘No’ that have nothing to do with you’ – this is really important to say. We can all take things so personally and feel down because of it.
