The War on Men Must Stop: My Thoughts on Manliness

WARNING: This post contains traces of sarcasm and humor. Please don’t take offense to anything I write, unless you’re a beta male.
Earlier this week, I was tweeting about the need for more manly men in our country. Apart from communists and Marxists, nothing irritates me more than feckless people – especially feckless men.
You see, in a selfish sort of way, I don’t want to have to pick and choose a potential boyfriend (and later husband) from a crop of wusses. When a female looks for a potential mate, she looks for a guy who resembles her dad – a guy who is loving, strong, affectionate, fun to be around, and confident. I want to look forward to dating, not babysitting – is that a crime? I know other women share this same frustration.
I’m biased when I say this, but my dad is the definition of manliness. Heck, HE IS the Most Interesting Man in the World – well, his lookalike.
When I say my dad is the epitome of manliness, I sincerely mean it. My dad doesn’t take crap from people; he lived in a communist country and went through (and later overcame) many challenges in Lithuania. He is a fisherman, general contractor, husband, father, brother, and friend. If that’s not manliness, then what is? There are many men like this; they just need to be recognized and encouraged.
In general, feeble-minded men are a reflection of a country gone awry – a country vulnerable to attack.
That being said, you can read my thoughts on manliness and the war feminists are waging on it below:
“It’s Raining Beta Men: Why Emasculation is a Curse, Not a Blessing”
Harvard professor and Manliness author Harvey C. Mansfield opined, “We are attracted to the manly man because he imparts some of his confidence to everyone else.”
Manly men—past and present—have captivated the world with their talents, leadership, oratory skills, and virility. They are strong, protective, and brave. They are fathers, gentlemen, husbands, friends, and neighbors. They are innovators, pioneers, and model citizens. Simply put, manly men are invincible.
Great men like Ronald Reagan, Charlton Heston, Winston Churchill, and Clark Gable exhibited manly traits in their respective lives. They lived in an era where men were expected to defend themselves and were prepared to fight. Before the ascendancy of feminism, manliness was the gold standard – a virtue all young men wanted and sought. Anything short of manliness was discouraged.
Today, we look to Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu, Florida Congressman Allen West, actor Bruce Willis, and other manly men for confidence and guidance. They make us feel safe and comfortable. They lead us and represent us. They protect us from harm’s way here and abroad. Without them, civilization would cease to exist.
Alas, feminists have waged a war on men and continue to perpetrate it.
Feminists contend that patriarchy and its “male enablers” enslave women through marriage and motherhood. They assert that men are sex-driven, lustful pigs keen on subduing women. As a result, feminists are determined to undermine them.
Here is proof:
1) A typical feminist believes men enslave women through marriage:
“Since marriage constitutes slavery for women, it is clear that the Women’s Movement must concentrate on attacking this institution. Freedom for women cannot be won without the abolition of marriage.” – Sheila Cronan, in Radical Feminism – “Marriage” (1970)
2) A typical feminist thinks men are rapists:
“Male sexual aggression is endemic, if any sex act against a person’s will were considered rape, the majority of men would be rapists.” – Marilyn French, The War Against Women, Ballantine Books, 1992, p. 193
3) A typical feminist wants to eradicate manliness:
“Only when manhood is dead–and it will perish when ravaged femininity no longer sustains it–only then will we know what it is to be free.” -Andrea Dworkin, Our Blood: Prophecies And Discourses On Sexual Politics
In order to successfully carry out their agenda, feminists want “new castrati males” to replace manly men.
Rush Limbaugh famously coined this lexicon and recently affirmed that new castrati males are “men with no guts who have just been bullied by women and the power structure and liberalism in general.” He could not be farther from the truth.
Beta males greatly contrast manly men. They are weak, defenseless, and overtly emotional. They are uninspiring and deprived. And more importantly, they are subservient to women.
Unfortunately, these emasculated males have pervaded society. Turn on the T.V., and you see a guy crying on his wife’s shoulder or hiding behind her skirt. Listen to men talk about the so-called contraception shortage. They’re feckless and equally duped by feminist talking points. Watch beta males be berated by their feminist girlfriends and wives in public. It is humiliating and outrageous to watch.
When will the madness stop? When will real men stand up to emasculation and demand its end?
Fear not, there is a glimmer of hope.
Daily Telegraph recently published an article highlighting a new study that found strong men are likely to be conservative. It said, “Researchers cite muscle-bound Hollywood action heroes like Arnold Schwarzenegger, Chuck Norris and Sylvester Stallone as evidence that aggression is linked to conservative politics.”
The article added that conservative men boast “the hunter-gatherer instincts of macho men – which are a hangover of out cavemen origins when the strongest ruled the roost.”
Conservative men must vow to defend manliness. Our nation was built upon the hard work of men, not wimps. With the lackluster economy, high unemployment, and destructive leftist policies already in place, emasculation will add to this country’s demise unless it is stopped.
Men: America needs you and your strength. Do not surrender your virility to feminists. Instead, work tirelessly to combat this attack.
Beta males – you will not go unnoticed. Let the reclamation of manliness begin!
