Fine, here's my insightful take on manhood:
How to tell if you're a man: Does it make you happy to think of yourself as one? If you're not sure, try it out. Take as much time as you need. Much love to you on this journey.
How to be a man: Think of yourself as one. If you feel safe doing so, tell other people.
How to be a good man: Be a good person while thinking of yourself as a man.

not that this is wrong but I'd point out that adtech, self-driving, AI, and the gig economy demonstrate as well as crypto that capital intentionally and systematically seeks these frontiers to turn into a nightmarish maelstrom of abuse before the money dries up
I tell people that crypto is a free market in the sense of "free to be manipulated" (by whales, exchanges, and other big players) b/c there are no rules or oversight.

Were I as the head teacher, charitable proprietor, wise statesman, what
would it amount to?
Were I to you as the boss employing and paying you, would that satisfy you?
The learned, virtuous, benevolent, and the usual terms;
A man like me, and never the usual terms.
Neither a servant nor a master am I;
I take no sooner a large price than a small price—I will have my own,
whoever enjoys me;
“Young people in Europe and North America in particular, but increasingly throughout the world, are being psychologically prepared for useless jobs, trained in how to pretend to work, and then by various means shepherded into jobs that almost nobody really believes serve any meaningful purpose.”
