That was the creed of the Possum Lodge on Canadian TV’s The Red Green Show. I loved watching that show. It was a show that focused on how we men are so different from the fairer sex. And that can be a good thing. I think that too often we downplay the differences between men and women because we think they’re detrimental to society. I don’t think that’s necessarily true. Yes, there can be things that lead to sexism, inequality, etc. but when our differences are given proper outlets they can actually be a benefit.
One of those outlets for men is having a man-space; someplace that he can run to and have time alone with himself and his buddies. It doesn’t have to be elaborate; often times it’s just a garage or a local bar. But we need that time as explained in this short 4 minute TED-talk.
