Unfortunately, what could otherwise be a good book is ruined by the author’s own self-importance and a sorry lack of central theme and guidance.
When actor Jonah Hill said men have been taught not to show vulnerability because it’s thought to be feminine or gay, he’s ignoring a fundamental aspect of being a man.
Audiences tend to like the hero’s journey, not moviemakers who bludgeon audiences over the heads with morals and forced progressivism.
That some men misunderstand masculinity and misuse it is not justification for broadly rejecting broad shoulders, stubbly chins, and horsepower competitions.
Gillette isn’t against the patriarchy, they’re against the bad patriarchy. What we need, more than ever, is men willing to fight for good patriarchy.
Boys are not lost because of toxic masculinity; they are lost because their fathers have been taken away from them and they cannot figure out how to fill that void with anything but rage and shame.
How do you parent a boy when political grenades are constantly being lobbed at their entire sex, due to no fault of their own?
This effort to eradicate masculinity is dangerous because it disrupts the relationships that depend on the complementary nature of the sexes.
Boys are over-cluttered with mixed messages, mostly negative. They have grown up with a constant narrative, bolstered by statistics, that their sex is falling behind across the board.
Reluctant to let me browse alone through fake mustaches, wooden puzzles, and Fisher-Price gear, the clerk insisted on being helpful.
Most women will never meet a truly ‘toxic male,’ whatever that might be. The problem with the guys they come across is the exact opposite. They don’t approach with any intentions.
Take away all the guns and we will simply see death by other means until we address the real issue: Our culture has become toxic.
Any discussion of the mass shooting crisis must include the cultural rot of masculinity. The problem is not with men, but with a culture that allows boys to remain boys well into adulthood.
Maleness is not the reason behind suicides, wars, bar fights, robberies, and every other social pathology that are pretty much the exclusive domain of men.
Progressives will blame tragedies like the Las Vegas massacre on anything but human nature, and in the process make arguments rooted in bigotry.
Sexual harassment digests a degenerate thug like Harvey Weinstein with a college student who makes an awkward pass or a well-intentioned boss who compliments a dress.
I always suspected the left would circle back to Puritanism. What strikes me about most of the allegations so far, however, is how unmasculine the men are.
Instead of focusing on criminal behavior which has nothing to do with a man’s masculine identity but a person’s evil choices, some target men for simply being men.
