Cartoon blog day 33: Moustache

Do you remember the movie FIGHT CLUB from 1999?

Like most young men I was obsessed with this movie. After The Matrix (the first movie) this was the movie which made me understand that there is more to a movie than what you see on the screen.

When I watched it then I understood it as a calling against the capitalist system which we need to fight against, I didn’t do anything about it because I was too busy studying for my Bachelor in International Management.

I am not that old, the movie came out in 1999, I watched it in 2008 for the first time.

When I watch it again now, I see it as a movie which questions the place of Men in society.

In India, moustache was and is a sign of masculinity, I remember being jealous of my friends who had thick facial hair. Slowly that jealousy faded away. Even now I have a light and most of the time no facial hair, because I understood that there is more to a man than having facial hair.

You are maybe waiting for an answer about Men’s place in society. I believe it’s not a written and done snapshot, it’s a work in progress.

Our place is at the table same as women’s to figure out the future of this experiment we call civilization.

Bonne journée.
