The simplest answer is, logically, not at all. And it is true, since a woman can’t teach courting to a man, especially because of all the feminist nonsense taking over the general mindset of society.
However something is better than nothing, and mothers are capable of teaching boys many things they will find useful as men. In this case I am speaking of physical skills both men and women need, as well as a few pieces of wisdom which are useful to any human being.
I grew up with a far left father who actually believed men should be passive and refused to teach me anything that could prove dangerous, including how to drive or shave myself. Unfortunately I reached puberty early in life, and by age fourteen I had a full grown beard. It was my mother who would teach me how to shave my own face, instead of my father. Fortunately it was just as useful and effective. The same thing happened with skills such as cooking and general human skills everyone should learn at some point.
She of course felt a burden because she could not teach me anything about dating or how to develop social skills the way men do, and she was also entirely unable to drive, so I would need someone else to teach me those skills. A role male teachers and relatives would take. The absence of my father in my upbringing was not nearly as harmful as it was to most men. Of course most of those men ended up drinking soy lattes or in jail, and I have become a professional writer.
The crucial factor was as follows. My mother is a strongly patriarchal woman who insists “women’s liberation and rights” came at the cost of sacrificing both male and female sanity and freedoms. She saw the charade of feminism and how on the long run women were harmed by it. Such a woman resulted into a better mother than any feminist mother.
She could never teach me how to be a man, and I had to learn that from men other than my father who, for the sake of “safety”, would refuse to teach me anything dangerous. I learned a few skills from everyone near me but him. In the end it was a proper mother, and my uncle, my grandfather, and a few male teachers, who made me a well adjusted man, with my father actually trying to impose feminist ideals in me during my teenage years. Ironically it was my father, and not my mother, who spewed nonsense about “rape culture” or the “inherent evil of men”.
To all ladies reading this, never marry a male feminist. They will harm your children more than any other type of father, and will burden you with the task of being the father figure.
