I think putting men to this type of standard is unrealistic. It feeds a problem many men already have…”Am I good enough.” Being fit is healthy for your body and appearance. But more important is what is going in the mind. Men need to worry more about being smart. Being kind. Being vulnerable. Being compassionate. There is nothing more appealing than to see a man care for an animal, rather than hunt one down. To see a man take up for the bullied, rather than be the tormenter. To see a man love his partner in word and deed. A man who gives of himself for good in his personal life and his impact on society. To truly be tough, a man must be true. The world needs more men who are true.
