I have weird question to propose to those who read this. Is it our responsibility as male youth workers to make male students more masculine? Allow me to give some context in why I ask this question.
Imagine you have a guy in your youth ministry who is extremely feminine. Everything from his physical mannerisms (not physical features), interests, and social interactions with others scream feminine. He has the typical family dynamic, single mom, no father. He exhibits strong faith qualities and is a Christ follower. However, you notice that his social interaction with others and staff is extremely awkward and often distracting to others.
I ask this question because I want to know if it’s our responsibility as men to make his kid more like a guy. Is it wrong to want him to be socially accepted and less awkward…more masculine?
