I have written a great deal about the feminization of America's boys. While Feminists have become more masculine with every passing year, men and boys have become wimpy, feminized and afraid of their own shadows.
About five years ago at a Boy Scout meeting for my son who had been recently promoted to Boy Scout from Weeblos, I looked around the room and shivered. I leaned over to my husband and whispered, "There's not a single male role model in this room." Shortly after that meeting, my son changed Boy Scout troops to another where men ran the troop - although many pushy mothers tried.
Between the teachers, pushy feminist mothers, lawyers and Hollywood depicting men as idiots, men have been relegated to the dufus category and boys are cry babies. On the playground, boys can't play chase - someone might get hurt. Boys can't fight - someone might get hurt. They can't play on the monkey bars or jungle gyms, or play King of the Hill, or tackle soccer, or anything that might involve getting roughed up. Even in dodge ball, boys get in trouble for throwing the ball too hard at girls.
In 1st grade, my son was asked not to return to the snooty school he attended. I wondered what egregious act he might have committed to elicit such a strong, negative response from the school. The only answer I got from his teacher is that he got in trouble for being squirrly in the PE line. This was a female-dominated school, where natural boyish behavior was supressed and they were made to learn French. Obviously, it was a blessing that my son did not continue attending such a female dominated, effeminizing, snob school. And today, he's at a Midshipman at the Naval Academy - manly stuff.
Feminists are miserable women - they want to dominate men, and then when they succeed at that, they hate the men they dominate. Feminists have become so masculine over the years, it's often difficult to differentiate between a "feminist" and a gender-bending woman. It used to be attractive to be feminine. Manly men liked us, and we where happy being pretty, wearing dresses and makeup, being good mommies and wives, and often managing work.
I heard a recent interview with columnist Kathleen Parker. Her new book, "Save The Males" is an accurate depiction of our anti-male culture and the ramifications. We are living the evidence.
In September 2006, I wrote The Selfish Pursuit of Feminism, and later turned it into a newspaper column here. And in 2005, I wrote my first post on the Feminizing of Boys here. It's a problem, and a big one. A boy with a feminist mother does not have a chance; he's been terrorized for years. When he realizes who he is, he's already married to a demanding, pushy wife.
Parents must take charge of their boys and refuse to allow schools and female teachers to dictate medications and treatments that render them docile.
I'd like your thoughts and experiences. And if you wear socks with your sandals, don't bother.
Glad to hear this coming from a woman. I rant about this all the time. Unfortunately, the dropout rate among boys continues to grow.
I’m as much a man as any man was or ever will be.
I don’t care what is expected of men only what I expect of myself.
I treat women as they should be and they had better act like the women I expect them to be.
Don’t expect me to be anything but what I am for you will be either amazed or disappointed, depending upon your view and outlook on live.
I am a man. F*ck you! I don’t bloody give a damn what you think or expect.
I am !
That's the whole point...if your intent isn't to maim and disfigure your opponent, then stay on the porch with the girls.
I must make a confession, my life as a kid was a lonely existence...none of the mothers in my neck of the woods would allow their boys to play with me, I was too rough. The other boys ALWAYS went home with a bloody nose.
My dad taught me to fight right out of the womb and I enjoyed it, we were a wrestling and boxing family.
But I was a pariah in my neighborhood, and even my own mother thought that I was too violent.
Then as a young man, I joined the United States Marine Corps
and I thought that I had died and gone to pugilist heaven.
All is well now, and I have my self esteem back /s. I've been teaching kids the art of martial combat for years now in my garage...my nephews dubbed it “Uncle Mark's School of Death. My point is, if boys aren't taught to be rough when needed, then we'll end up with an emasculated culture, like we have at the present. MEN, afraid to stand up to Obama, because it hurt their approval ratings. Ha! I'd send that little Kenyan usurper home with a bloody nose!
Anybody who has been in the Scouts knows it is Webelos.
He didn't mince words.
Here are some things you can do about it. Keep your boys around their most important male role models, Dad, Grandpa, Uncles, Coaches (but not alone with them unless you are sure the sons know all about “bad” men no matter who they are) as often as you can.
Do not bash men with your friends, women. Your kids are listening. Don’t purchase all of the many male-bashing greeting cards. It’s OK to joke about men if you also joke about women equally and are affectionate about it.
Do not join churches, synagogues, and other family gathering places that are run by women. As soon as women start running the place, the men leave or do not participate. (This is a gross generality so check for exceptions too!)
Also remember that SOME feminization of boys lately has to do with a lot of plastics and estrogenic chemicals polluting our environment, especially their mothers’ wombs. This is not the fault of societal man-bashing and it’s not their fault. Research estrogenic pollutants and try to keep your lives free of as many as is possible.
Teach your boys how to shoot. Then teach them to ride a bike. They get experience in proper handling of firearms at that early age and they will be immune to feminization.
You sound kinda gay..
Spirit of Jezebel....
"When he realizes who he is, he's already married to a demanding, pushy wife."
I've also noticed that demanding, pushy wives are invariably spendaholics. There must be exceptions, I've just never seen one.
i noticed this early on when i moved from boston to no. virginia (’87 to ‘95). the feminized men started appearing mostly around the early 90s, probably coinciding with the incoming liberal horde from the clinton admin. a friend from boston came down around ‘94 and she asked why all the guys were so girly... “liberals” is all i said.
it boils down to the male desire to couple with females, and the liberal American female demand for docile men. either give them what they want, or move on. which was fine for me... but when the environment of available women goes liberal heavy, the pickin’ start getting mighty slim. hence the move to florida (that, and i couldn’t handle the bs i was seeing/hearing at the time)
if American women ever wonder why American guys like Asian women... it’s because they’re feminine. they bathe. they shave. they smell nice. they comb their hair. they are polite. they aren’t fat. they aren’t mean & nasty. they don’t dress slutty. and they don’t sleep around (not that i have heard/seen, anyhow)
also, i live in florida... socks are considered formal wear and strictly taboo with sandals (unless you’re a fruit)
I can see that. Probably too many fights over who gets to be Boomhauer.
I gave my son a Ruger 10/22 for Christmas when he was 10 years old. He was thrilled. We had a lot of fun with that firearm. One of my sisters was aghast that we gave him that firearm. One of her sons is now an open homosexual. Our son is a Marine Corporal with two fine children.
Dang ole, dang ole, seen ‘em in the dang ole playground, dang ole sissy boys...
I did this for my son and my two daughters.
They also got mini courses in bow and arrows and other self-defense. Nothing too heavy just a light introduction.
Beyond that I told them from an early age that if their teachers ever knew that they were conservative or anything like conservative they would get lower grades or other mean things would be done to them.
I told them that blacks would get off easier than them in school and society. PS they went to integrated schools and they said it was obvious.
I also told them about the heterophobic teachings in school and that the goal was to psychologically change them.
Parents who are conservative do not adequately educate their kids. You can tell them the truth about a lot of things that you normally would not want to tell them. If you don’t, the homos and other adult liberal perverts will do it for you and they will start in first grade.
LOL, so I wasn't the only one who found that comment a bit gay...
if American women ever wonder why American guys like Asian women...
Married one. Also FROM Boston.
The desire of men to play by women’s rules in the hope of “getting some” is, I agree, the crux of the problem. And, as stated, the women end up hating the men they have molded. It didn’t used to be like this. Women didn’t “win” (un)equal rights. Weak men surrendered the power and responsibility that they held. Now, look where we are. Gay marriage, fatherless homes, a Nanny state...
Maybe this is supposed to be funny... but there is nothing wrong about learning French. Goodness...
