Control Yourself!

man! Control thyself
Only then can you get salvation
If you are to fight, fight
against your own desires.
Nothing will be achieved by
Fighting against external enemies;
If you miss this occasion,
It will be lost forever.
One's own unconquered soul
Is one's greatest enemy.
jain scripture - acharanga sutra


Dear men,

Yes, I'm talking to you.

Did your mother humiliate you and steal your confidence?
Did your ex abuse you until you felt like a cowering dog?
Did your dad steal your manpower as a teenager?
Did your boss tell you you were no good?

What happened that took your manhood?

Just society?  Conforming to your friends?  Drugs? What?

Look, I'm telling you right now, go back out there and find what you've lost. Now. There is no time to be lost. We need men. Real Men in the world. Integrated, full and strong, supporters and lovers, and protectors.

Go on, go get your balls back.
