43. "Masculine" is one end of a continuum of which the other end is "Feminine"

In other words, for me, they are the antithesis of each other. However, no one is truly at one end of the scale or the other. All people fall in between the ends, having both masculine and feminine characteristics in their psychological makeup. How do we deal with, and integrate those traits in our lives: That is the question.

To me, the better question would be "What is it to be a Man".

Or, conversely, for women, the question would be "What is it to be a Woman".
