    You need me to explain why an article claiming there's a massive conspiracy surrounding a "war on manliness" is stupid?

    There is a "war on manliness" in today's society. Watch TV and you'll see example after example of men, especially older white males, being portrayed in a less than a favorable light.

    The feminine male is all the rage on more than just a few TV shows.

    Notice the absence of modern day westerns and war oriented shows that show the male in a dominate role. Notice that in most sex scenes that the woman is always on top. Every show has a woman in charge, or if a man is a co-star he shares power with a woman.

    Just look at how the school bullying controversy was handled by society. Did you ever hear anyone tell the victim to fight back? Of course not.

    We're raising our male children to be wimps and metrosexuals that tolerate any aberrant behavior that the perverts tell them to.

    There is a war on strong assertive males in this country.

    I somehow have no doubt you knew what a "Mani-Pedi" was when you were 14.

    No, there's not, just as there's no war on women. You're the spitting image of the people you hate the most. You're no different than the stupid, naive and gullible liberals that bought into the fictional war on woman during the election. Are there liberals out there that do not like the traditional role of men? Yes. Are there republicans out there that don't see women as equals? Yes, in fact, several posters here have openly said that women shouldn't be allowed to vote. However, they are in the minority, in both cases. There is no widespread war on women within the Republican Party. There is no widespread war on manliness within the democrat party.

    Let me ask you a question, have you read anything on the internet that you didn't believe? I'm not asking in a rhetorical sense, I really want to know, because for the life of me I can't get my head around how gullible you are. The sooner people like you stop this idiotic preaching on social issues, the sooner republicans will win elections.

    I'm pretty sure I knew what a manicure was by the time I was in high school, too, just as I'm sure my female peers at the time knew what an oil change was. I would hope someone who is a few years away from being able to vote would be able to grasp and understand basic concepts.

    Yep, you are right.

    Hey, it's black or white now, no gray. It's far left or far right, no middle ground anywhere to be found.

    It has gotten that when you draw a line in the sand, you better make pretty damn sure which foot you're using.

    It used to only be on Lifetime TV, but now it is on all channels. So yes, dumb, or dumbing down of males?

    Of course. For example, your post. I don't believe an intelligent male can fail to see the assault on manhood.

    Did you buy into the war on women propaganda during the election?

    :tongueout: It's a joke. I had no clue what a mani-pedi was until I had to ask my wife what it was when it was mentioned on a sitcom. If you want a serious discussion, OK.

    Would you describe your home as Urban, Suburban or Rural?

    When was the last time you killed a mammal for the purpose of eating it?

    Who cuts your hair, a barber, a stylist, a family member, or yourself?

    If you pay to have your hair cut, what is available to read while waiting?

    How long have you been carrying concealed?

    You're confusing two entirely different subjects, maybe on purpose?

    First, this has nothing to do with the so called republicans war on women.

    Second, it's about our liberal society's assault on manliness, not the democrat party. It's society's assault on the assertive male, not the democrats.

    If you can't see that assault in literally every advertisement you see today, then maybe you're the gullible one, not me.

    I'll go one step further and state that the primary focus of this assault is the southern white male. Now if I need to explain that to you, then you are the gullible one.

    If you notice, it's the southern white male that's resisting the liberal welfare state the most. It's the southern white male that resists the homofication of American society.

    That's why the assault on everything they believe in.
