5 Ways Masculinity Is Under Attack

We see it every day, and sometimes something like the Gillette ad comes along that really shoves it in our faces. Yet the power behind it is so strong that one of the world’s largest corporations is willing to sacrifice sales of one of its most profitable (overpriced) products on the alter of the politically correctness.

Masculinity is really under attack in the US and around the Western World. When did it begin in force and what are the reasons behind the attack?

Things started changing in the 1960s and 1970s and the media led the charge. Compare the mom played by Donna Reed in the Donna Reed Show to to the one played by Bonnie Franklin in One day at the Time just a decade later.

Reed was the stereotypical 1950s – early 60s mom. She always wore dresses. Although she was a college grad, she sacrificed her career to be a loving mom and wife. While she definitely had an impact on decision-making, she did it in a subtle way. She was always a lady and her family was the center of her life..

Franklin played the role of a divorced single mother … brash and opinionated. She struggled financially and her daughters often had to fend for themselves. The only men in her life were her boss, who ran a diner, and a handyman. She really didn’t have much need or use for men.

Masculinity is increasingly coming under attack in America. The American Psychological Association has practically declared it a mental illness: “Traditional masculinity — marked by stoicism, competitiveness, dominance, and aggression — is, on the whole, harmful.”

Of course, UT-Austin did a “MasculinUT” campaign that essentially did the same thing with ads like this:

These sorts of attacks on men and attempts to redefine masculinity as something more feminine have gotten so ever-present that even a razor company like Gillette is crapping on men, noting that only “some” of them are good and warning us about toxic masculinity.

Have you ever asked yourself why this is happening? Well…

  1. Feminism is now centered on getting special privileges and man-hating
  2. Fewer men see themselves as capable of being masculine
  3. Traditional men don’t fit into America’s victim-oriented culture
  4. Divorce and single moms are factors
  5. The contributions of traditional men are habitually ignored

    Personally I am all in favor of this. Look, its a matter of personal choice. One can be Kaitlan Jenner or the Marlboro Man, a matter of preference. Yea, Marlboro Man does not fit the victim culture, but then I don’t think most men who fit the latter personna really give a shit. I know I don’t.

    Another 9/11 happens, a matter of when not if, it won’t be some man bunned barista that the country looks to for sorting thru the rubble. That if you can find the pansy out of hiding somewhere in the backroom.

    Oh an by the way, the whole scheme is doomed to failure. You can’t fight a million years of genetic programming. The more males that join the beta culture the wider the field is for the alphas. The women can’t overcome their hypergamic nature even as they caterwaul about ‘where are all the good men…’.

    The Catholic students from Covington Kentucky have been vilified, slandered and all but physically crucified in and on every media outlet you can imagine.

    The LEAST stringent punishment that Politicians, “celebrities, and “journalists” have called for is expulsion from school. It goes up…way up…from them. Very famous and influential people and organizations have called for the boys to be punched, raped, and murdered…and everything in between.

    Why?

    Because an INTENTIONALLY MISLEADING video was posted to Twitter that fit ALL of the preconceived notions of the Left as to how AWFUL young Christians boys MUST be…and it was thus swallowed, vomited and RE-VOMITED for 24 hours. A media LYNCH MOB was formed, and the boys were “hung” without a trial.

    The 100% INNOCENT young men were victims of a classic leftist propaganda tactic: Get in someone’s face and then play victim for the cameras. A man purporting to be a “Native American tribal elder” got in the face of a young man and pounded his drum in his face for five minutes. The boy did NOTHING…NOTHING. He simply stood there and took it. The intent of the drum-pounding activist was to get the boy to REACT…but he didn’t. Okey-dokey…the Left made the boy’s LACK OF A RESPONSE clear “proof” that the boy was EVIL…and thus he deserved a series of disgusting punishments, and even death.

    Once again, Politicians, “celebrities, and “journalists” have shown they cannot be trusted. And remember, if they can do this to CLEARLY INNOCENT young boys, they can do this to anyone…even YOU.

    Sadly there is another student who looks like the young man in the video. Their entire family life as well has been torn asunder based merely on being a near doppelganger. I wonder, is the pro bono attorney having any luck? This would be a clear case that could end up at SCOTUS to tweak the slander laws.
