Steverino: List (Things that suck about being a man)

G'day my honest amigo...

What follows is not a rant.

It's not a political statement or endorsement.

And, it's definitely not a winge-fest for ole Steverino.

Nope. 

It's a reflection of things that have frustrated me deeply for a while now about being a man in today's politically correct hyper-sensitive don't poke the bear environment...

So here are a few things that suck about being a dude...

1. It sucks to be labeled arrogant for being confident...
2. It sucks to be labeled weak for being sensitive...
3. It sucks to be labeled flirtatious for being kind...
4. It sucks to be labeled chauvinistic for being chivalrous...
5. It sucks to be labeled egotistical for being intelligent...
6. It sucks to be labeled a “mansplainer” for having any opinion at all...
7. It sucks to be labeled for even sharing this short list. 

But, hopefully tackling a lose-lose situation won’t be a waste of time.

Especially, if it causes even a hint of curiosity in you the next time a confident, sensitive, kind, chivalrous and intelligent man crosses your path.

Don't get me wrong, guys have had it good since like forever. I'm just sharing a personal observation.

Here's to being yourself...
