    What’s in Store for Your SonsIn the 1970s, Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson playfully warned mothers about the downsides of the cowboy business: “Mammas don’t let your babies grow up to be cowboys / Don't let ‘em pick guitars and drive them old trucks / Make ‘em be doctors and lawyers and such.” That song was written before today's full-blooded assault on masculinity in American culture. It was a time when you could poke a little fun at traditional male identity while still honoring it. I have been a professor at Bucknell University for twenty years, and alas, I find...
  • Chinese Plan to Boost 'Masculinity' With PE Classes Sparks Debate

    AsiaOne ^ | FEBRUARY 02, 2021
    A plan in China to get boys to do more sports as a way of making them more manly has reopened a debate between those who urge more diversity and those backing a more masculine society. The education ministry has said it aims to increase the number of physical education teachers and revamp gym classes to boost the “masculinity” of students. The plan was in response to a proposal last May by a member of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, an advisory body to the government, calling for help for boys who have become too delicate, timid and effeminate...

    In more ancient simpler times when men were closer to God's creation, great trees were honored in ritual. They gave us strength. They rooted us to the earth. We needed them then and we still do. Truly good things just dont change.

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    If ever there were a TV personality who shouldn't accuse others of being insecure about their masculinity and worried about appearing impotent, it's Donny Deutsch. Deutsch, the guy who wangled a "Muscle and Fitness" magazine article about himself cringingly entitled "Donny Deutsch Gets Jacked,"featuring pics of him [see below if you dare] in a boxer's pose and lifting weights, and including this disturbing factoid [emphasis added]: "In the ’90s when he ran the day-to-day business affairs at Deutsch Inc., the boss was known to rip off his shirt and bust out pushups during meetings to shake up a stale room."...

    Deadline ^ | August 2020 | Bruce Haring
    Conservative pundit Tomi Lahren has several issues with men and claims it’s something that all of her friends experience. Departing from her normal political shtick, which she airs on Fox Nation’s First Thoughts, Lahren took the video route to shout out her problems with men in a rant. Calling herself a “woman of value” and applying that tag to her friends, Lahren tongue-lashed the games men play and the fact that they’re not appreciative of women like her. “It will be a cold day in hell before I chase a man,” said Lahren, who moved from Los Angeles to Nashville...

    9 Marks ^ | Mar 2010 | Jamie Dunlop
    Why Men Hate Going to Church, by David Murrow, explores the elements of American church life that discourage attendance and engagement of men. His conclusion? Churches have shifted toward a style that is comfortable for the stereotypical woman—at the expense of the stereotypical man. And by men, Murrow is referring to masculine men: high achievers, alpha males, risk takers, visionaries... Murrow points to four categories of church elements that clash with the temperament of most unchurched men. 1. Church makes men feel uncomfortable because it emphasizes feminine values For example, sentimental songs that celebrate the intimacy of relationship with Jesus...
  • Strong Men Are the New Nails

    Leadership from strong men is slavery, newscast interviews with lawyers, academics, and mental health professionals tell us. "Toxic" is the new word for alpha. Masculinity, as with other pathological conditions, must be treated early – as early as possible. Treatment is unleashed in camp, school and recreation time in the neighborhood or at home. When the condition has been left untreated, teachers, medical doctors and psychologists must navigate a late diagnosis and implement treatment. Stat. Carl Jung said that if all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail. The hammer now at hand is made of ideological...

    Pure Life ^ | 2017 | Steve Gallagher
    If it is true that one out of every five men sitting in America’s pews is saturating his mind with the evil images of pornography, how does this effect the overall level of godliness in the Church? It seems that the general urgency to live a consecrated life is at an all-time low. Self-centered living seems to have replaced true sacrificial love. A hunger for God has been exchanged for a lust for entertainment. While the Church is weathering a fierce spiritual onslaught from without, the godly character needed for this battle rots within. I believe in the Church Triumphant....

  • When I was a midwife ........

    When I was a registered midwife in Australia (for just over 3 decades, interspersed with time in Indonesia), I learnt many interesting things. Attitudes to the presence of a male in the profession were open and warmer in Catholic hospitals than in public hospitals. Generally speaking Catholic hospitals had a touch of warmth in most things compared to the secular places. Vietnamese people were also very open to a male presence in midwifery compared with any other ethnic group. The Vietnamese men were the ones least likely to be uncomfortable if the midwife was a male. It was probably a...

    Friday December 6th marks the thirtieth anniversary of the "Montreal Massacre" - a grim day in 1989 when fourteen female students at the École Polytechnique were murdered by a man known to posterity as "Marc Lépine". Much followed from that terrible slaughter, including various useless "gun control" measures - and the formal annual commemorations that, three decades on, are attended by as many eminences as Remembrance Day or Dominion Day. The men present in that classroom are now in their mid-fifties; the women are not. I was far from home that December and was not back in Quebec until Christmas....

    Come on boys, vogue! The youngest generation’s greater willingness to embrace nontraditional gender norms has opened up a new market within the beauty industry: men’s makeup. One-third of young men said they would consider wearing makeup, according to Morning Consult polling, while 23 percent of all men said the same. Founders of men’s cosmetic brands credit the increased interest among young men not only to a wider acceptance of the idea that gender is fluid but also to the pressure to be picture perfect at any moment, thanks to social media. “The stigma associated with buying and purchasing this product...

    “American men are failing in body, in mind and in spirit. This is a crisis..." ~ Tucker Carlson Young women are surpassing men in virtually every area of life. Girls avoid drugs more than boys, play less video games, get better grades, perform better on iq tests, and attend prestigious colleges at a higher rate than boys. The average American woman is likely to live five years longer than the average American man. Men are twice as likely to die of drug overdoses and more than twice as likely to be addicted to alcohol. More than 90 percent of people...

    We are the middle children of history with no purpose or place. Our generation has no Great Depression, no Great War. Our war is spiritual. Our depression is our lives… We have been raised by television to believe that we’ll be millionaires and movie gods and rock stars – but we won’t… And we’re very, very pissed off. With the release of David Fincher’s Fight Club in the aftermath of the Columbine high school killings, fears about representational violence resounded in the popular press. This response was not surprising in that Fight Club tells the story of an unnamed...

It explores the downfall of masculinity and shift into post-industrial capitalism. Jack is a skinny man working a dead-end job in an unnamed office...The film presents him as one of thousands of men convinced they are little more than lower/middle class workers.

The film establishes Jack’s bond with similarly depressed individuals. Convinced he is sick, he visits group...

    The Good Men Project ^ | June 2018 | Mark Greene
    In American culture, we believe that men can never be entirely trusted in the realm of the physical. We collectively suspect that, given the opportunity, men will collapse into the sexual at a moment’s notice. That men don’t know how to physically connect otherwise. That men can’t control themselves. That men are dogs. There is no corresponding narrative about women. And where does this leave men? Physically and emotionally isolated. Cut off from the deeply human physical contact that is proven to reduce stress, encourage self esteem and create community. Instead, we walk in the vast crowds of our cities...
