Meninity has been through a lot of changes, but there has always been one constant: the interest in topics on masculinity and male sexual behavior. It is said that people share a higher nature and a lower nature. For men, those natures are in perpetual conflict. Our higher nature can keep our lower nature at bay. But that temptation, lust, and desire is always knocking and looking to break free. Meninity is at the intersection of that conflict. Our lower nature should not be cast down or subjected to judgement. It’s a part of what makes us human. But we also need to know that if we choose, there is a high nature to help us thwart opportunities of the flesh.
The inspiration for what Meninity is today is an August 1986 passage from Solitary Road. I encourage you to read it. While Meninity isn’t as concerned with religion or the concepts of “good” and “evil” as the passage is, our concern is in better understanding male culture from both sides of the table on a variety of different topics. No matter if you are male or female, young or old, looking to make changes in your life or just looking to understand why we do the things we do, the hope is to raise questions and hopefully gain perspectives in a collaborative effort. We’re not trying to save the world. We just want to have open and honest discussions.
