On Being a Man

Chase R., M1

Even in 2018, having a “Y” following that “X” chromosome provides men with a number of advantages and privileges that we enjoy, without noticing, every day. The most important thing to do in this position is to respect and advocate for our peers, especially the lucky half with a double dose of “X”. This is also the time to broaden your perspective on what it means to be a man, understanding that each person can have his or her own interpretation of what that means. Lift weights and watch college ball on the weekend or get down on the dance floor to the magic of Queen B herself. This portion of your life is an opportunity to do some introspection and use the advantages that were given to you by birth to better the lives of those around you.
