It doesn’t matter HOW hard you try to shoehorn men into some kind of a collective, the competitive drive in men is stamped right into our DNA.
And no, it’s not a ‘toxic masculinity’ or ‘social construct’ either. It’s what makes men tick and perform at our best.
What we see on full display in the animal kingdom when a couple of majestic stags lock horns to show who’s the alpha, there is a parallel masculine drive even in the civilized knuckle-dragger.
It isn’t just fighting over women and money either. It’s getting that last word in an argument. Dominating a political race. Seeing a problem and leading the charge to fix it. Inventing something to make life better.
The competitive masculine drive — when properly harnessed — pushes us forward to excellence.

Also, don’t miss out on Doug Giles’ best-selling book:
Rules For Radical Christians is not a survival devotional designed to help the young Christian adult limp through life. Rather, it is a road-tested, dominion blueprint that will equip the young adult with leadership skills and sufficient motivation to rise to a place of influence in an overtly non-Christian culture. Rules For Radical Christians gives the reader the keys to become strategically equipped to move into an anti-theistic environment and effectively influence it for the glory of God.
He’s also got nerves of steel, walking towards the fight that everyone else runs from.
