I was walking by the trolley yesterday bumped into a tall guy, even though I said excuse me. he gave me an elbow so I shoved him into a wall he squared up I walked away knowing that two trolley cops are always by the trolley. When a tall Mexican man and a “shortish” black guy fight and the cops arrest both nobody wins in my opinion I got to much to loose(Baby on the way first year of university). He then proceeded to call me some names, I walked away and thought of one thing, does this make me less of a man. Often times I feel like our society is there not to empower individuals but to restrain them from resorting to their base needs. If I fight some people would see me as a man but others would say since I cant control myself I am not a man. “Manliness” is a difficult subject to define my favorite movie fight club delves into the modern age mans struggle to cope with manhood. I want to base my book also on a man’s struggle to “claim” his manhood, I also just purchased Chuck Palahniuk’s book Fight Club and purchasing his comic Fight Club 2.
