What is a man? Being. Being a man is a state of mind first and foremost. A man is a free thinker, an individual who forges his own path through life. He is defined by his own principles and the decisive actions he takes, aligned with his personal value system and true path in life. Every male was born with the potential

If b) positive… I won’t spoil it for you.
