Manhood – Womanhood

Manhood … is a solitary experience, a land of silences and understatements, a place where a lot of important things have to be learned alone. Whereas womanhood, a lot of the time, is a thing you get to share.

From an insightful, tender book by Jennifer Finney Boylan about being a transgender parent.

  1. What a delightful way to put it! For sure, women bond by talking… and men by doing things together 🙂 I’m sure there are exceptions but generally, it is true: “Manhood … is a solitary experience, a land of silences and understatements, a place where a lot of important things have to be learned alone. Whereas womanhood, a lot of the time, is a thing you get to share.” Thank you!
