Dear Brothers and Sisters:  Gender and Its Responsibility

Sunday, June 27, 2010


Just a few days after the posting of my essay Changing Our Perspectives the results of a survey appeared on the internet indicating that a majority of Americans expect that by 2050 a cure for cancer will have been achieved and that bionic limbs will be developed that work better than natural ones. Our society has made a god of materialism and fully expects it to do things better than our creator can. The penchant for technological solutions is nothing more than a sophisticated extension of gross materialistic thought, which refuses to recognize that materialism and its extension technology have created the problems of modern society.

I am not going to address the folly of the belief in materialism, but will use this survey as a reminder that most people are not ready to change their perspectives. Only a small virile and dynamic group will bring about change. The last sentence of my essay read, “Only you can reverse this trend. It requires changing your perspective and having the courage to take appropriate action.”

I had intended to say only men can reverse this trend, but I know that change will include the supportive nurturing efforts of women, and I wanted to make my call to action all inclusive. However, women can only nurture and support something or someone that exits. They want to see the power and direction before they can support it. In my book, Dear Brothers and Sisters: Gender and Its Responsibility, I stated in Chapter 18 “Women and children go wading; men sit on the beach or go swimming.” When women go wading they can say they were in the water or stayed on the beach depending on the question. Women do not like to make decisions; they abhor them.

In every building that I have been in that contained elevators with doors that open out into the hallway I observed women holding the door open while they talked to the person on the elevator or in the hallway as the case might have been. They wanted to leave and they wanted to stay. They like wading. The feminized modern vocabulary has been developed to be free of commitment. It replaces Yes and No with “Maybe” and “I’ll think about it” at best.

This does not mean that women won’t support change; it means they don’t initiate change. Their natures are to be responsive and supportive. They need something positive to respond to.

More and more women recognize the positive nature of Men’s Action and have begun to support it. The month of June has not yet ended and I am posting the fourth letter from a woman under Men’s action News titled “A letter from New Zealand.” These four women join many others who write in to support our message. They see that Men’s Action consists of more than a blog site; they see that it has a mission statement, videos, a book, information materials and a consistent message. They want to see more.

They want to see a commitment and action from men; including their husbands, boyfriends, fathers, and brothers. Instead they see increasing numbers of men going wading with the women and children. They want to be in an environment in which the men let their yes me yes and their no be no. Instead increasing numbers of modern men say “maybe” and “I’ll think about it.”

Decisiveness and zeal have a spiritual foundation. In Revelations 3:15-16 we find the following: “I know all your ways; your are neither hot nor cold. How I wish you were either hot or cold! But because you are lukewarm, neither hot nor cold, I will spew you out of my mouth.” The word from headquarters is that lukewarm doesn’t accomplish anything.

It is time my sons to get up from the beach and make a commitment to dive into the surf of change. There is no power in this world other than the power within you. When you exercise that power you will begin to make change and it will receive the responsive nurturing support of women everywhere.
