Stereoypes...also

Things that annoy me (not comprehensive):

I am deeply frustrated by people who equate testicles or manhood to courage. I am enangered by people who feel that penis size is an acceptable subject of degredation (whether it be based off of known truth or simply a fashioned mockery). I don't approve at all.

In addition, I simply disapprove of masculine stereotypes. I have heard a lot of them directed at me or diverted around me, and a few are even polar opposites of each other. Some I have equally heard applied to women. I don't like being "an exception to the rule", as I have, at times, been called. I don't want to be viewed as an exception so much as proof that there are men that don't fall into false stereotypes. Out of the few stereotypes I do fall into, I know enough men that don't to make those stereotypes equally foolish.

I don't see how any true equality between the genders can be gained unless men and women start looking at each other as true individuals and not as a construction of stereotypes.
