Thanks Ryan, and I agree. I think we go to extremes in our thinking more often than not and that damages the masculine soul. I was joking on Twitter just yesterday that when Captain America bites the dust in Avengers: Endgame, I’ll be a weepy mess. That wasn’t a joke though. I love Cap and the masculine soul he emulates, the soldier, fighter, and hero. But I also respect the way they portray his sensitivity as well. I can get on board crying for the death of a man who emulates character like that—though fictional—because it moves the masculine soul. We forget that to be vulnerable and express our emotions in a way that reflects honor is masculine.
