The feminization of everything hasn’t bypassed religion, and most Christian denominations have felt its consequences. To discuss sin is just not nice, too truthful, too masculine. so preachers and pastors are tweaking their “messages” to appeal to the emotional, feminine side of their flocks. Naturally those flocks are shrinking. Meanwhile Islam, the boys’ own religion, flourishes.

SO TRUE.
I call it the NANNY STATE.
These 40-something women are CONSTANTLY telling us how to live, behave, eat, sleep and dress. They do it with such a "know-it-all" attitude. SOME even smile throughout the lecture. There is one who GRINS throughout the announcements and I REALLY want to punch her in the nose.

MEN used to dominate the radio and television and it wasn't coincidence. MALE voices sound better on the air.
Women's voices DON'T sound better unless they happen to have deeper voices Those women that do ARE successful on the air.

These "nanny-state" women make me nauseous. I just want to PUNCH'EM in the nose...and I'm a peaceable WOMAN most of the time.

You and me both, sister! And you’re exactly right about the female voice. When I was a girl there weren’t many women on TV news shows, but the few there were spoke calmly, and sounded like mature adults. Nowadays I don’t have a TV, but I do enjoy the radio; I even listen to NPR, esp. for their international coverage. Naturally there are oodles of females in their lineup, but they sound nothing like the newswomen of old. They sound like a bunch of empty-headed, up-talking junior high grrrrrls, “vocal fry” and all. It’s hard to take them seriously. (I read once that Margaret Thatcher took lessons from a vocal coach early in her career in order to sound more serious, less like a screeching housewife.) And many of the men on NPR sound stereotypically gay.
