Why do men HAVE to be masculine? – I hear often.
Hey. I dont understand why cats HAVE to be feline either? Or why is that plants HAVE to do the photosynthesis? And why gorillas HAVE to smell like shit? OK you were born as a cow but do you HAVE to produce milk? really?
How can nature be so patronizing?
I see what happens. The mechanics of a group become the paradigm of the group, the common sense of the group, the caricature, then the caricatures become morals, laws, society, they become normalized, and then normalization calls for rebellion.
But nature is not the same as society. Nature was here first.
Its not that nature is forcefully pegging you in a little box and nagging you when you misbehave. Society is doing that. Nature is telling you something else.
Get rid of whatever you were taught and you´ll still be a man. You will still be hungry, thirsty, horny, you will still be here.
Its not that penguins HAVE to slide and lungs HAVE to breathe. Its not an order.
Its not that you HAVE to be. Its that you ARE.
Its that this is all you´ve got. The sum of the traits and the mechanics between and the behaviors they originate and whatever constitutes you. Your original form.
Its that you ARE.
This is your bicycle. Now instead of spitting on it because it IS limited, learn how to use it, to the best of your ability, and pedal the fuck out of it.
Your body, your energy, your talents, your faculties, your internal mechanics, your true imperatives, your drive, desire. Your true form.
Embrace it. Master it. Become it.
