Don & Dan's Toxic Masculinity Podcast
There is a type of love between boys that is deeper than any intergender emotion, i havent watched this viedo but just see the look in that bloke's bleary eye - admiration, adulation, adoration, hanging on every word, that true manlove on a different level, of course it need not be physical

not to mention
like this, enter the shadow realm

Its a joke a running joke of my wifes that she wants nothing more than to be a 13 year old boy in a squad of other 13 year old boys. Riding bikes, getting in trouble, just being little turds. There's obv a sexual component to all squads of boys, but that it will never express as sexual gives it that special component Sufi is gesturing towards. These kinds of rewards are why monks abstain

I do get jealous of the complete candor of woman-woman friendship though. Painting with broad strokes here, but in my experience it's more like dating than the average male-male friendship

My experience in a fraternity was insightful in this respect. That particular setting revolved around the establishment of bureaucracy within the boylove.

A great opportunity to inspect the roots of the incumbent old boys. Of course, it was situated within the orgiastic social epicenter that I found difficult to navigate.

Early freshman year, a friend and I started an intramural dodgeball team with the primary intention of showing up spectacularly intoxicated, and we managed to get quite a few fellows on board. The strategy was short-lived.

I once went to hoof a dried cow pat only to take the top off and end up with a foot clarted in pungent, green slop.

It was back when I was focused on being normal, or at least didn't think to think otherwise. More fun, more lost.

In the founding class of the fraternity's chapter at my school, thus hazing was categorically off the table. Much of it was fun, and it occasioned useful lessons that are still being learned. That said, it felt all about sex, and compelled by excellence and dictated by norms, I felt inadequate.

Ultimately the inadequacy persisted, deflamed, evolved into a more manageable insecurity, and I wrote my resignation letter to the fraternity, in keeping with their resignation procedures. The letter was a Spenserian Sonnet that was designed to convey both my genuine acknowledgement that their values didn't line up with mine, flavored by a smattering of in-jokes that I would later laugh at with my roommate, also a somewhat disillusioned brother.

The tone was such as to leave them unsure whether or not I was making fun of them, a result I reveled in upon reflection.

like men who loudly claim to be 'feminists.' all sex predators and perverts every one of them
I don't entirely agree, but there is something uncomfortable about it. I was thinking about this stuff recently:

ive mentioned before how todays political climate reminds me in a lot of ways of the environment and time i was raised in.

Yeah there is a lot of anxious reflection going on vs very visible performative "being a complete knob for clicks" type stuff. Difficult to navigate.
