Mard ban MARD!
You have probably heard men saying that to lift, encourage or push each other forward. I recently read this phrase and a couple things crossed my mind.
Often when I hear men say that the underlying message I hear is use your strength, be the person you were made to be. And that is usually correlated with strength and power. Yes men have more strength than women but that is not how their relation and attitude with women is meant to be.
Men were created to protect, to take care of women, they were created to provide shelter and necessities to women, they are meant to be their support, they are meant to be gentle and patient.; all contrary of what that phrase often implies.
If one would truly interpret that phrase, it would consequentially serve actions contrary to those that usually follow.
