The Good Men Manifesto [Podcast]

By | November 13, 2019

Does it feel like masculinity is under attack? Perhaps you need a manifesto.

Listen to Real Men Feel, #145, “The Good Men Manifesto” here:

Author and therapist, Jed Diamond, returns to the show to share what he’s learned from doing 70 years of men’s work. It is time to embrace your maleness.

“Men can’t be fully alive to themselves, to the women they love, to their families and friends, unless they understand and embrace their maleness.” ~ Jed Diamond

Rooted in biology, evolutionary science, and research, The Good Men Manifesto is comprised of twenty elements. Jed wrote this to help both men and women better understand maleness, and it is the foundation of his upcoming book, 12 Rules for Good Men.

Topics and Questions Include:

  • (2:30) Why is there so much focus on men these days?
  • (4:16) The three questions we need to answer before we die.
  • (10:00) Where did maleness begin?
  • (13:17) Appreciate the biological basis of males and females.
  • (16:15) Does size matter?
  • (17:53) The disposability of men.
  • (22:41) Honor our warrior spirit.
  • (26:13) Enjoy the male communication style of dueling.
  • (32:46) Understand that male and female differences also manifest in politics.
  • (36:33) Accept monogamy is not natural for males and females.
  • (41:39) The most significant thing to understand regarding maleness and femaleness.
  • (46:47) Accept the world of men is bipolar.
  • (52:13) Become aware that men put women on pedestals and also pull them down.
  • (54:12) Acknowledge the truth that males learn to be men in men’s groups.
