Eclectic Gentleman

The Difference between a Man and a Gentleman- A man tries to make his mark. A gentleman strives to leave his mark. A man accepts a favor. A gentleman returns a favor. A man gives orders. A gentleman inspires. A man fits a mold. A gentleman tries to break the mold. The differences are many but it all comes down to this: A man takes the necessary amount of steps. A gentleman takes extra steps. ”

Most men never think about patriarchy—what it means, how it is created and sustained. Many men in our nation would not be able to spell the word or pronounce it correctly. The word “patriarchy” just is not a part of their normal everyday thought or speech. Men who have heard and know the word usually associate it with women’s liberation, with feminism, and therefore dismiss it as irrelevant to their own experiences. I have been standing at podiums talking about patriarchy for more than thirty years. It is a word I use daily, and men who hear me use it often ask me what I mean by it.

Nothing discounts the old antifeminist projection of men as all-powerful more than their basic ignorance of a major facet of the political system that shapes and informs male identity and sense of self from birth until death.
