More Manly Virtues
It seems I'm not the only lady blogger who thought Robert Jensen's commentary decrying the supposed evils of manhood was not only ridiculous, but suggested a far from desirable outcome. Desolving masculinity, that is.
Fausta accurately labels Jensen a "wuss" and points out the indisputable fact that, much to feminists' horror, "men like to protect women and women like that."
Meanwhile, Atlas calls the idea of a "feminized man...repulsive" and instead, wants her "some Robert Mitchum." I couldn't agree more. Love the sexy still she posted of Mr. Mitchum and a curvy lady friend.
Seeing as they would be on the receiving end of Jensen's proposal to do away with masculinity as we know it, the fellas have chimed in as well.
Shrinkwrapped delves into Jensen's psyche (scary thought) and ties his article in to "the radical feminist notion that gender is a social construct," as well as the left's overall obsession with "passivity."
And this morning, Rush Limbaugh, accompanied by much chuckling, read segments of Jensen's article on his show. He labeled Jensen a "male lesbian," which is strangely, the most accurate descripion I've heard thus far.
The really frightening, but sadly not surprising, part is that Jensen is a journalism professor at the University of Texas.
Mammas, don't let your sons grow up to be journalism professors...
