Feminism had brought out the envy from some males. Even to the point of a Male Liberation movement….still working on that one…..I mean males have been the controlling general of society for so long and they are now running scared.
Even a US Senator has jumped on this stupidity…one Josh Hawley…..
Joshie boy wants to step the stage for his presidential run in 2024…..and he is thumping his frail chest on manhood……
Conservative Sen. Josh Hawley of Missouri opened a fresh battle in the culture wars with a defense of masculinity, arguing that the left is turning young men into wimpy creatures addicted to porn and video games. That, in turn, triggered a backlash against the 41-year-old. Coverage:
- The speech: Hawley addressed the National Conservatism Conference over the weekend and addressed the “future of the American man.” You can read it in full via the Federalist. He complained that liberals “want to define traditional masculinity as toxic. They want to define the traditional masculine virtues—things like courage and independence and assertiveness—as a danger to society.”
Big line: “Can we be surprised that after years of being told they are the problem, that their manhood is the problem, more and more men are withdrawing into the enclave of idleness and pornography and video games?” asked Hawley, who’s expected to vie for the GOP presidential nomination in 2024. (The Trump supporter famously raised a supportive fist to protesters in DC on Jan. 6.)
Counterpoint: At the Independent, Noah Berlatsky disagrees with Hawley’s take on masculinity, but he also sees a lot of hypocrisy in the criticism. Calling Hawley a wimp plays into the very stereotypes that these critics typically rail against. “Whether Hawley is a bad masculine manly man by his own standards is irrelevant,” he writes. “What is relevant is that those standards themselves are malignant and dangerous. Don’t let Hawley trick you into using them.”
Another wedge issue….just once I would like to hear a policy coming from the lying lips of a GOP candidate.
And the GOP malignancy continues to grow in the party of ignorance and lies.
