One of the best things about blogging is the excellent people you come in contact with. As I have repeatedly said, Siggy, who I have never met and don’t even know what he looks like, has been a most supportive friend of my blogging and podcasting. Shane Borgess of (link has sound) Political Vindication and Political Vindication Radio also is another great guy I would have never come across if it weren’t for blogging and am honored to count him as a friend.
(You can see that Shane is very handsome. If you want to know what Siggy looks like, ask him – don’t ask me.)
Yesterday Siggy and Shane discussed how we create men and women in our society. Shane asked Siggy the question, “What do you see as the nature of a man?”
This is not a trivial question. The answer to how we see as the nature of a man defines how we as a society raise our childen, behave in every relationship (be it familial, professional, or sexual), and what we expect from other societies.
Siggy explained that men want to protect and solve problems. Women want to communicate: with great nuance when they raise children, and in a protective way. Shane said, “Men want to solve problems, women want to talk about them”. Shane also saw independence as another factor in men’s nature.
Do men want monogamy? What are the conditions for monogamy? Do men want to be idealized by their wives?
Is there such a thing as love as first sight?
You must listen to the entire podcast.
My special thanks to Shane and Siggy for having this wonderful conversation.
