Roosters and Men
Roosters share some important traits with men. Knowing roosters has helped me understand men better. The curious thing, though, is that the traits I see roosters and men sharing do not foster bonds of friendship or respect between them. When the rooster exhibits his rooster behavior to my husband, my husband gets angry and declares, "I am not going to put up with this!" and plans the rooster's demise.
Why does he not say to the rooster, "As a man, I understand that you are defending your home and your women. I respect that, and I want you to know that I value and greatly admire your success as a breeder."
Tis a puzzlement.
