It has always been said that if you want to feel the wrath of a man, insult his mother. You will see him turn into a beast that is out to destroy and can never be calmed down. This is solely because there is a special, almost sacred, connection between a son and a mother. This bond exists in every man (young or old) and in every mother as well.
From the moment of birth, mothers become pillars in their sons’ lives. They teach them, care for them, and protect them with all their being until a time when the sons grow into their own man and start finding themselves. At this point, mothers may feel like they have lost all control over their sons but one thing to always remember and smile about is that, no matter where a man goes or who he meets, there will always be a special place in his heart for his mother, hence the need to take care of his mother and protect her always.
Andrea Dworkin summed it all up when she said, “For a mother the project of raising a boy is the most fulfilling project she can hope for. She can watch him, as a child, play the games she was not allowed to play; she can invest in him her ideas, aspirations, ambitions, and values — or whatever she has left of them; she can watch her son, who came from her flesh and whose life was sustained by her work and devotion, embody her in the world. So while the project of raising a boy is fraught with ambivalence and leads inevitably to bitterness, it is the only project that allows a woman to be – to be through her son, to live through her son.”
