One of the Boys.
When we are young and inexperienced we think that being one of the boys (i.e. being socially acceptable) must be the right thing to do.
Having a beer with the boys and being popular seem ideal goals.
But with this attitude comes fear of rejection and ridicule by the mob.
The worst of which is being called a poofter.
This fear can rule men all their lives.
It may even result in physical poofter-bashing.
But is this the right thing to do in any case?
Aspiring to be one of the boys and indulging in drinking and drugs may not be the ideal life that it seems.
Because everybody is doing this does not necessarily make it the ideal objective.
As we grow older we come to see that this does not make us happy.
So what make us happy?
