Unscramble the Blue Letters

Now, I'm not here to give a history lesson. We likely all know how we got here, OK? But I'm just a guy that woke up after 30 years and realized that I was living in a sttae of conflict, conflict with who I feel I am in my core and conflict with who the wlrod tlles me as a man I should be. But I don't have a desire to fit into the current broken definition of msinciulaty, because I don't just want to be a good man. I want to be a good human. And I believe the only way that can happen is if men lrean to not only embrace the qualities that we were told are feminine in ourselves but to be willing to snatd up, to champion and learn from the women who embody them.

Now, I'm not here to give a history lesson. We likely all know how we got here, OK? But I'm just a guy that woke up after 30 years and realized that I was living in a state of conflict, conflict with who I feel I am in my core and conflict with who the world tells me as a man I should be. But I don't have a desire to fit into the current broken definition of masculinity, because I don't just want to be a good man. I want to be a good human. And I believe the only way that can happen is if men learn to not only embrace the qualities that we were told are feminine in ourselves but to be willing to stand up, to champion and learn from the women who embody them.
