I was listening to The Danish National Symphony Orchestra’s outstanding performance of The Good, The Bad and the Ugly. This has become a go-to song for inspiration. It stirs me deeply. Apparently, millions feel the same way.
Scrolling through the comments I read: “My neutered dog heard this and his testicles have grown back.” I laughed with tears for five minutes! It was good for the eyes.
I wonder, What it would take to grow back testicles on emasculated men?
It’s been said, “Our culture has taught young boys to be good little girls.” How many young men are wobbly about what it means to be a man? No wonder our sexual confusion. Boys are taught, “Men are rude and violent. You don’t want to be one of them! Men abuse women. You don’t want to be one of them. Men start wars. You don’t want to be a man.”
Some boys are neglected and become feral. They may become aimless and unrestrained, become abusive and violent, or cowering hermits. But the education many boys get today is almost worse than neglect.
Modern social innovators teach boys to be sensitive, to quench their rambunctious ways, to be passive, not damage the china or clang the tableware. In our pursuit of taming men, we have turned lions to sheep and eagles to chickens. In our taming the “savage beast” of manhood we have removed their fight for greater things, their courage to contend for a noble cause. And many seem proud of this accomplishment.
Who will teach boys to harness their masculine powers for good, rather than the bad and ugly? Boys need to be taught self-control, to play within the boundaries, and fight fair, but Lord have mercy on the ones who would steal away sport and sparring and rumble from hearts born to possess it!
May boys be raised again to have tough sinks and soft hearts. May boys harness their sanctified manhood to protect the vulnerable, to contend for the right and to pursue high-heaven ambitions! Boys should be inspired to yoke their masculine powers for The Good, The Glorious and The Magnificent!
Perhaps a listen to The Danish National Symphony Orchestracould help bring healing for young men robbed of manhood.
