Is joining the military the only way to become a man these days?
In every other walk of life, men are persecuted for being men (you're expected to accept having women bosses, despite the fact it is completely unnatural for women to try and be in charge of men)
Literally, it's like the world wants everyone to be a fucking fag these days
You do realize you could end up with a woman for a boss in the military too, right?
>there are female army rangers, even
>gender-integrated boot camps
It's a shame the military is less sexist than you are.
I hope so because it bothers me how masculinity has been eroded and there doesn't seem to be ANYTHING we can do to fucking stop it.
Yeah that's also probably a pretty manly job to be fair
You could get a female boss yes but it's far less likely. In the military they allow women to do a job if they're capable of doing it but they don't do equality for the sake of equality, which is good. They realise, for instance, that women don't have what it takes to be front line soldiers.
In senior roles it is mostly men, so it's most likely that you'll have a male boss. Also since, as I said, they don't compromise their tough values for anyone (male or female), you are always expected to man the fuck up and deal with shit no matter what. In desk/office jobs, people want you to have "empathy" and a load of other female bullshit traits, it's fucking disgusting

Why yes anon, part of the military's function is to pound adolescents into functioning adu-
>In every other walk of life, men are persecuted for being men
Oh. So you're just a faggot rather than concerned about modern American society's ambiguous gap regarding the transition to adulthood. We don't need more faggots like you in the military.
>modern American society's ambiguous gap regarding the transition to adulthood
What do you mean by this?
True, I should do that. I don't really know anyone who's a farmer though.
>There are women on the front line you derp.
Here in the UK, there aren't, apart from some tiny exceptions I think, but I can't remember what they are.
Anyway I'm just saying, the military is one of the few places where it seems men can still be men. In every office these days, everyone is fucking obsessed with "equality" and all that fucking crap, and if men want to have a bit of male banter, they will get fucked in the arse for it. Is there any other job where men can still be men? Men are biologically different to women, we have banter and play pranks and shit on each other to establish a hierarchy of respect and dominance. That's how it is in nature. That's how males naturally are. But modern workplaces persecute men for this sort of banter, and this sort of behaviour. You're expected to be an androgynous drone. How is it possible to escape this? It isn't - all office jobs and industries are falling victim to this cultural cancer.
I think maybe I just feel inadequate in life because I'm not that, and I keep obsessing about the fact that if I don't become that, I will have objectively failed and fucked up in life.
Doesn't make much sense to me. I know plenty of people who are successful and don't have those traits.
Maybe you compare yourself to others too much?
>if men want to have a bit of male banter, they will get fucked in the arse for it
This is absolutely the same in the military. I'm not saying male banter doesn't exist, but if there is an incidence where somebody feels uncomfortable and reports it, you can expect a big investigation and consequences. Probably more so than civilian side
Perhaps you should focus more on bolstering your self-esteem and self-confidence and not on fitting arbitrary male stereotypes.
I only recently came out as bisexual (because I realized I was very, very attracted to this guy I know, in a romantic and a sexual sense -- we have chemistry), and a few people were like "I KNEW IT!" because I hop up and down when I get excited and sometimes use the word "silly" in a sentence and apparently walk like a woman, whatever that means.
I don't really care. If that's how I am, that's how I am, and it's completely harmless.
Learn how to do you, don't do other people.
>yes, society tells you these things, but the full message is "be yourself... unless you're weird, then be more normal!"
It does help that I know I have God's approval, and I don't really need to care about anybody else's.
The way to become a man is to be a male with self-confidence, independence, develop wisdom, and be self-sufficient as well as protect the needs of those you love.
You don't need to join the military, you don't need to fuck a lot of women, you don't even need to be straight; your natural state of a man will develop over time as you do the things above.
>Maybe you compare yourself to others too much?
Yeah maybe but what else are you meant to do in life, I mean everyone life is a competition at the end of the day isn't it?

I get that harassment is not acceptable and will be punished but from what I know, there's still more general banter (as long as it isn't harassment) in the military than in office jobs. Then again my only experience of the military is the stories of a couple of my friends who have been to Sandhurst, and then what I have looked up on the internet as well. And my experience of an office job has been 1.5 years in software development, which is a notoriously left wing field (which is why it angers me so much). So maybe I don't have a full wealth of experience
Thanks for posting this.I always figured that masculinity's been twisted into a monster.
It should be about handling your personal business, taking care of the people around you, leaving things better than you found them, and being as well-rounded, independent and informed as you can be.
Basically, it's just being a decent human being.
