Your Penis Is NOT Your ‘Manhood’2012-06-25 at 05:40 pm Blog RSS
Sexuality, sexual organs and anything to do with sexual behavior seems to be among the things which illicit the most completely insane and irrational thoughts and even laws among humans, especially if there is any religious involvement. Currently in the USA, it is considered much worse for a young child to see a naked woman’s breast on television or other media, than to see the blood and gore of war and accidents. This suggests a twisted mind to me; one who values pain and death more than the beauty of sex and life.
For most men, it is hard to imagine anything that could be more ‘emasculating’ than comments about his penis, even if the comments are completely false. It also can be source of much ‘pride’, ridiculous as that is. For most men, their penis is the focus of a lot of attention long before they are consciously aware of what a penis is and that they have one. It is still very common for males to be physically mutilated – on their major sexual organ, of course – mostly because of ancient religious beliefs and misguided notions about cleanliness and hygiene. When I ‘Google’ the words ‘penis’ and ‘manhood’, the first link presented is for a product called Manhood, which is, “an undergarment acting as a foreskin substitute.”
There’s that word again, ‘manhood’. The word ‘manhood’ has come to be almost universally synonymous with ‘penis’. This is an outright statement by virtually the whole society that, if you do not possess a penis you are not a man. Several implications follow, the main one perhaps that, the smaller your penis the less ‘manly’ you are. No, really. So much so that a ‘celebrity Mohel’ wrote only a couple of months ago about what he called a micro-penis…he said: “Today I circumcised a baby with the smallest penis I’ve ever seen – a ‘micro penis’,” wrote the rabbi and added: “Just so you understand, it was slightly thicker than a matchstick; at first I thought it was a girl… May this small one grow to greatness.” . Source. Poor kid…little does he know he can never be much of a man now, thus sayeth the Rabbi.
Luckily, for most men who may not measure up physically, there is one last chance to be a man. Esquire magazine (and what better authority could there be on the subject?), had an article in 2009 called “How To Be A Man”. The first sentence of that article? “A man carries cash.” Source. You know it’s true too because how many times have you seen middle-aged to old funny-looking bald guys with pot bellies with babes on their arms. There you have it guys; as soon as you’re old enough to realize you don’t have a big dick and prolly are gonna be poor as dirt, you might as well dig a hole (if you’re man enough) and get in it for good, cuz your life is just fucked (and not in a good way).
Of course, many poor guys do have sex (after all, someone has to continually replenish the supply of useless eaters, right?), and I’ve personally known of guys who are police officers, firemen, etc., who were ‘small’ who managed to survive. I know of a cop whose hard erect penis is less than one inch, but he is happily married to a lovely woman and has three children. What’s “average”? “Ninety percent of all men[’s erect penises] fall between the extremes of 14.5cm (5.6 inches) and 17.5cm (7 inches) despite any claims to the contrary.” Source.
What does it mean to be a man? What is ‘manhood’? There may be myriad answers to such questions but I do hope you guys (and girls) will keep it in your heads that ‘manhood’ is NOT a physical object that can be cut off. I hope you will question why anyone would find even the thought of a small penis remotely funny or amusing, as though its owner had a brain fart and just forgot to grow a big one. I would hope that we can eventually make this kind of absurdity as socially unacceptable as belittling gay people.
