Man Is Also A Victim

The world men inhabit is rather bleak. It is a world full of doubt and confusion, where vulnerability must be hidden, not shared; where competition, not co-operation, is the order of the day; where men sacrifice the possibility of knowing their own children and sharing in their upbringing, for the sake of a job they may have chosen by chance, which may not suit them and which in many cases dominates their lives to the exclusion of much else.
– Anna Ford

The things I particularly like about men are their differentness, their simplicity, their cleverness, their ability to amuse and re-tell life better than it is, their sense of fun, their intelligence, their dependence on women, their boyishness – even childishness – their ability to devote themselves single-mindedly to their interests, their charm, their insecurity, their character and, above all, when they reveal it, their gentleness and vulnerability.

Man is not the enemy here, but the fellow victim.
