Girly Men: The Media's Attack on Masculinity

I've noticed a lot of girly men here in the upper Midwest. That's because they nursed off the hind teat and follow their women like sheep. They hide behind them.

"The tendency of the nation’s schools to suppress boys’ natural way of seeing and doing things, brilliantly documented by Christina Hoff-Sommers in her 2001 book The War Against Boys: How Misguided Feminism Is Harming Our Young Men, is becoming increasingly evident in the culture.

According to Hoff-Sommers, programs in America’s public schools are set up to obliterate all that is masculine and establish femininity as the human norm:

This book tells the story of how it has become fashionable to attribute pathology to millions of healthy male children. It is a story of how we are turning against boys and forgetting a simple truth: that the energy, competitiveness, and corporal daring of normal, decent males is responsible for much of what is right in the world. No one denies that boys’ aggressive tendencies must be checked and channeled in constructive ways. Boys need discipline, respect, and moral guidance. Boys need love and tolerant understanding. They do not need to be pathologized.

Hoff-Sommers goes on to note that "it’s a bad time to be a boy in America.... Routinely regarded as protosexists, potential harassers and perpetuators of gender inequity, boys live under a cloud of censure." The school curricula, she observes, are skewed toward girls’ strengths and away from those of boys."

OOOO you Manly Man you!

I am certain that YOU are not EXACTLY that person lacking in Masculinity.

Mommy should not have laughed at you in the shower, but your issue is with her, not those evil "Them" that YOU feel threatened by!

Ok

I gotta say that I have not chosen to spend the time that you claim you spend to "Check out" the size of other men's "Units", and compare their "Size" against the words they use.

Do not get me wrong here. YOU, as a Manly Man, are normal in checking out other Men's "Units".

Again, direct your anger toward Mommy for laughing at you in the shower, not to your fellow MAN!

No, but I saw him throw out the first pitch at the Cubs opener in Wrigley Field a few years back. He throws like a little girl.

I blew in town 40 years ago, I ain't seen a lotta girls since then
If I could find'em I could get'em but as yet I have'nt met'em
That's why I'm in the shape I'm in ohhhh

Another Saturday night and I ain't got nobody
I got no money cuz I got no job
How I wish I had someone to talk to
I'm in awful mess
Another fella told me he had a sister that looked so fine
Instead of being my deliverance, she had a strong resemblance
To a cat named Frankenstein ohhhh....

Another Saturday night and I ain't got nobody
I got no money cuz I got no job
How I wish I had someone to talk to
I'm in awful mess
It's hard for a fella, when he don't know his way around
If I can't find me a honey to help me spend her money
I'm gonna have to blow this town ohhh....

Another Saturday night and I ain't got nobody

Yes I think there is generally an attack on masculinity in the western world, but I blame some of the western men myself, why do they cower for the feminist freaks, let me tell you this, a feminist does not have respect for your everyday metrosexual you see these days on the streets in the west, they may superficially say you are tolerant, enlightened and all that nonsense but deep down they loathe you, that is why these western feminazis usually like immigrant men, because these immigrant men are not brainwashed by feminist thinking and still act and carry themselves like men. A man should be what God intended him to be not some what feminist man-hater wants him to be.
