About this work

THE PERFECT MAN

Fortunately, the reactions to male chauvinism are becoming more and more noticeable and we are moving, step by step, towards an egalitarian and equitable society. The stigma on women is finally being challenged and they are being freed from old Aristotelian burdens.

However, if anything, someone else suffers from the effect of this age-old behaviour: men themselves.

We were born into a society that expects the best from us. We are brought up to be strong, courageous, confident, authoritative, protective, and parents. Vigorous alpha males who know everything, can do everything, want everything, and have everything.

What will become of us, the other men, those who are neither safe, nor brave, nor strong? What if we do not want to beget children? What if we need someone to tuck us in?

We are the failure of man, as we have been taught, and all that we have been taught is of no use to us.

Perhaps that is why we do not have a path to follow, a doctrine that exhausts and deceives us, that frustrates us and makes us violent, unhappy, destructive. We have put up with your harassment, your mockery, your ignorance... And you have made us feel that we have nothing to lose, since we were born with everything already lost, and that, perhaps, is the best thing you could have given us.

We are free. Free to think, say and feel what we want. Free to form our family without preconceived patterns, and even change as many times of life as we want. Free of borders, of your sins, of dreaming of what we want and, what madness!, of even fucking whoever we want.

Now we dream of gathering these virtues and becoming that new man, or maybe we dream of falling in love with him. We don't care if you tell us that change is impossible, that love is not real or that it doesn't exist.

Pair of swifts: Love, dependence, union, partnership.

Big ears: Reason why the character, without any doubt, has to be a good person. A child with big ears has to learn to be a good person to survive.
