“It is true that men must get in touch with the aggressive energies buried in their bodies.
Men cannot realize a genuine awakening of their vitality, though, unless they participate fully in the world of emotions and feelings, a dimension of themselves that is constantly projected onto women (and homosexuals). Men can no longer get away with attributing to women a weakness that is actually their own. Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty are parables of man’s repressed anima, of his emotional world still unawakened, scorned, subjugated, and neglected. Vulnerability, feeling, intellect, strength, and courage do not belong exclusively to either men or women. These qualities are the common heritage of humanity.”
Guy Corneau – Absent Fathers, Lost Sons: The Search for Masculine Identity
A mouthful to munch. By me for sure. Maybe, by the mankind in Malacanang who project manhood by their obstinate love of power and money. Or maybe by the men who say their matin who argue with obduracy that women actually do lack the heritage of humanity to become priests-leaders. Just daydreaming.
