These days, society is very uncertain about gender differences and the idea of complementarianism. But when I see a video like this, I can’t help but smile at and appreciate the particular aura and camaraderie male friends have with one another. This is just one example of their specific set of proclivities. Putting myself in someone else’s mind, I realize this could be seen as society-taught alpha-ism, and I wouldn’t deny that entirely. However, I believe that at the root, gender expressions like this are innate. At some point in each day, I find myself recognizing and enjoying the sometimes intangible contribution men bring to social and professional dynamics. Is it possible that as we address and correct the historical and continued disrespect and devaluation of women, that we can still celebrate the unique essence of the male gender?
