"How to Be a Real Man" clip from Acquire The Fire TV show

If any of you have watched Mind over Mania (MOM) which was just shared by Robert Karp on Think Atheist (here is the link http://www.thinkatheist.com/video/mom ) you will now be familiar with Acquire the Fire. Here is a very disturbingly funny video by Acquire the Fire's TV series called the "Josiah Project" from 1999. I promise you this is not a troll this is for real.

Yeah, real is obviously an idiom for "ideal"  Different people have different ideas of what ideal means.  The concept is not expressly religious.  It is however, becoming an out of date idiom, and Christians are known for being behind the times in everything, including music.  But this clip is from over a decade ago.

I think the value can be found in helping young people mature into men and women.   The problem is that now there is more than just men and women, so there really needs to be something that accounts for those who reject gender identity, but I think for young people it is tied into developing into what you are going to be.

@ Kris:  absolutely - these qualities all apply to women as well.  I just think that men and women express them in slightly different ways.  In writing that list, I had some women in mind as well as men. 

@ John:  these qualities would equally apply to "third gender" people too.
