Full human beings? Individual freedom? Freedom to do what? Freedom to make more money? Freedom to delude ourselves into believing that being 35 years old and acting like you're 21 is ok? We've become a narcissistic 'me' society. Your notions seem to be postmodern ideals which are basically justification to lead irresponsible lives. It is little wonder why our kids are so screwed up.
Traditional male attributes like: Nobility, legacy, honor, courage, loyalty, valor, etc, are important. Diminished gender roles have diminished these (and much more) attributes so that we can lead irresponsible lives.
