‘Be The Person You Want Them To Be,’ Says Author/Comedian On Parenting | Morning Joe | MSNBC

I don’t think the world is ready for this conversation. Toxic masculinity is still very prevalent in sports, law enforcement, the military, etc.
And by “traditional masculinity”, he’s talking about the modern/boomer’s idea of what masculinity is. If anyone bothers to remember Achilles, the single greatest heroic figure of the western civilization, didn’t actually become likeable until he showed basic human empathy. People have been contemplating this conundrum via stories ever since we could tell them across all cultures; I’ll save you decades of researching it, the answer is cultivating empathy along with all other attributes in your life you deem virtuous.
MSNBC IS CRAP MEDIA RUNNING FOR COMUNISTS
Would have been nice to let him finish his sentence/thought before cutting off the video.
Dude, where was this book when I was raising my son as a single mother? I did my best but it would have been helpful to have gotten a man’s opinion. Men wouldn’t go this deep. Thank YOU.
“the real man IS AFRAID,” as he correctly exposes.
visit lindsay graham’s, “trumpistan” and talk with his ‘old england,’ lol, it’ now ireland, oops!,
and talk with the ‘peasants,’ the truckers to mill workers, working “losers of trump,.
Get that book out to the Trump kids.
If my wife of 30; years came to me and said she cheated on me I’d forgive her.
But if she came and told me she’s a democrat. I’d pack her crap and throw her out.
Let’s share this message for a better compassionate America. So We Will March! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KUYuXI4wSzk
with close attention to trump’s ridiculous insistence on the implausible to “Fake.”
Trump is an Epic Fail as real man! The Trump name will likely become just a ‘joke”
Simple rule: When i doubt about being a man ask yourself: would you let your daughter date someone who does something like that?
Funny how MSNBC are the ones campaigning for Biden and not himself! He wont even answer one straight question. When asked about packing the courts he said “I won’t answer cuz it will be all over the headlines”. Well how convenient. Where is the transparency they flaunt. Watch this video.https://youtu.be/Q0AD65EPE_k
“be the person you want them to be”
you sound like a friend of mine who spent the past 6 months working on converting a trumpite.
like, neat, you did it, but also I’ve got better things to do than spending my time convincing people who don’t want to hear it that they’re following a fascist regime.
I will never understand hate. Based on scarcity. There’s not enough so I’m takin yours. The richest country in the world surrounded by abundance. There’s plenty for everyone. It’s a Dumbfounding lie
“Our military are soulless cowards. Their budget must be cut. We have become a nation of baby killers through our military.” “ Our soldiers have become nothing more than a collection of evil sadistic monsters whose sole purpose of existence is to maim and slaughter “ Kamala Harris 2019.
A wonderful conversation to have at this time and thank you for writing this book. I believe true strength, whether you’re a man or woman, is to know you have an advantage over another person, whether physical, economic, or otherwise and to choose to treat that person like an equal anyway.
Don’t you just get fed up with celebrities who think they know everything about everything or post personal and should be private things on social media citing ‘they want to bring attention to something that we have been aware of for decades or centuries.
Love your saying. Really! Be the person you want to see in another. My model my desire
Want to be the big butch alpha male? Then you don’t know what an alpha male is. This will explain it to you. (Worth passing on to those who need it):
If the Trump administration doesn’t make you cry you are not a man, you are a monster.
