Male role models provide a distinct and challenging function in our society.  They are the images of being a man that we learn, imitate, and eventually that we use as the foundation for our own manhood behaviors and values.

Many choices exist in our society for men to model … let’s just consider some “John” choices:

John Wayne … John Mayer … John Candy … John McGovern … John F. Kennedy … John Lennon … John Ritter … John Gotti …  

and then there’s John Adams … John James Audubon … John Belushi …John Boehner … John Wilkes Booth … John Cena … John Cusack … John Cleese … John Denver … John Dewey … John Elway … John Glenn … John Goodman … and we’re only up to the H’s:)

I can think of at least one positive attribute to almost every one on my John List so far … what about you?

Simple question:   How do you choose your male role models?

Thinking about why I choose who I choose in the Heartland ….
