Contrary to what the radical feminists tell us, men and women are fundamentally different, not only physically, but also psychologically. That is the reason for the well known observation that men are from Mars, while women are from Venus.
If you love reading 19th Century literature and personal correspondence from that time, you would notice that men who lived at the time, developed very deep friendships with each other, that are not common today. It is true that men from that era did not hug as much as men do today, and it is known that men were much less lachrymose than in this wimpy age. But friendships between men, nevertheless, had a very strong emotional content, and in reading letters that men frequently wrote to each other, their relationships had great depth. Those friendships were different from the superficial relationships that many men of today have with their golfing partners, poker pals, and drinking buddies.
Men were able to trust each other with stuff they would never tell their wives about. And in their letters, men were able to express deep feelings for each other, although they did so in rather formal language. But these relationships were healthy and beautiful, and were not corrupted with vulgar insinuations of homosexual attraction. I am thinking of relationships similar to that of David and Jonathan in the Old Testament, although, even that beautiful friendship has in recent years been distorted by advocates of the gay lifestyle to promote their perverse agenda.
Today, it is rare to see those sorts of old fashioned friendships, between two men who admire, respect, and trust each other, and who base their friendship on a strong code of honor, with both men also having a strong sense of self-respect. What was remarkable about those friendships, is that they lasted a lifetime, and also persisted during long periods of separation. If you read 19th century personal correspondences, you will find incidents where two men have been separated for 20 years or more, because of career or other commitments, and have managed to write to each other at least once each month over all that time. Upon re-uniting after such a long separation, such men could resume personal contact, with the familiarity of next door neighbors, despite their long physical separation.
