Shaming men who seek higher education

Leave a comment

This week in my column, True Community, I compose a portrait of a young man whose masculinity is pestered by his brother and father. His crime? He wants an education and to become a Spanish teacher.

I hear stories like these from young men very often. My hope is that, after reading my article, you’ll realize just how much courage and determination—even stubborn will—it takes to continue on when your family elders do not merely fail to support you but actively attempt to bring you down, either from jealousy or ignorance, usually from both.

I hope you’ll share it.
