Even today, an ideal man is suppose to have qualities, such as; bravery, level-headedness, and strength of character. He is expected to protect and provide. Today, in the era of feminism, our society expects men to be chivalrous without being chauvinistic, to be firm without being a brute, and to be caring with a hint of possessiveness without being jealous. We expect men to be honest, truthful, and brave enough to stand up to what’s right.
