Yes Ansiktsburk, people will gravitate to roles that garner the most support from others. Historical factors mean that traditional roles tend to be more supported than others.

But all of that is not to blame for tyranny, though :)

The fact that you don't know what a real man is shows that there was something missing in your upbringing: a real man. They do this on purpose. They confuse the gender roles so that men won't know what it's like to be a real man and women won't know what it's like to be a real woman. They increase confusion and set women as the head of the household so that broken families provide children willingly to be indoctrinated as slaves into their system, raised and groomed by the system and thus incapable of tearing it down.
The conceit of males. That the word 'man' has to mean something great and noble and good, and anyone who isn't up to scratch can't be 'real'. Pathetic. Even the most depraved male pervert and abuser of the weak and vulnerable is still a 'real man'. A man is a human who has the Y chromosome. Nothing more and nothing less.
We are all beasts when we're not spiritually connected to the life-giving Spirit. The word "male" isn't positive or negative. But a "real man," to me, is someone who believes in God, knows, adheres to, and teaches correct morality--not relative morality--protects and provides for his family, is productive, protects the young and defenseless, does not compromise with evil people, and is willing to fight and die for a worthy cause. This is just a brief general outline.
Substitute Woman for Man and substitute daughter for son, and the meaning of the poem doesn’t change.


by Rudyard Kipling

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too:
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or, being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise;

If you can dream- -and not make dreams your master;
If you can think- -and not make thoughts your aim,
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same:.
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build'em up with worn-out tools;

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings,
And never breathe a word about your loss:
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: 'Hold on! '

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings- -nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much:
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And- -which is more- -you'll be a Man, my son!
