Skip to comments.American men taking back their masculinity?
Posted on 12/15/2013 9:07:01 AM PST by usalady
American feminists may be in for a surprise. A growing number of manly men in the country are taking back the masculinity that Betty Friedan and her ilk took from them during the beginning of the feminist movement in America.

Some of us never lost it.
i sure hope so! I am sick of girly men, beginning with that one who is occupying the White House. I am old enough that the man I married was a real man!
Interesting that you only post your own Examiner blog material:
I tell people that if I want to get in touch with my feminine side, I reach for my wife.
And when she wants to get in touch with her “masculine” side.. she reaches for you! Wonderfully stated, cuban leaf!
Exactly, the only ones who lost it are the leftists.
I’ll be 60 in January and never gave up my manliness. My son is a manly man as well.
Never lost mine...
If ya let someone take it you never had it in the first place.
Do u really see much evidence of this? Pretty much all we see here is a bunch of weak wimps worrying over things that real Americans would stand up and get rid of of just tell to go to Hell ( like any govt spying on American citizens or gun control Laws or other illegal means of enslavement tyranny dictatorship ). We see lots of worrying yes. But precious little legitimate action (excluding all the good FR - ers of course )
Here's a fun site on the subject. The youngin's are learning.
I just gave up my man purse last week. I am man, hear me roar !!!!! :-)
That might be the dumbest article I’ve ever read on the internet.
No one ever came calling for our manliness. Unfortunately some idiots on both left and the right were mentally incapable of maintaining both chivalrous AND liberated attitudes towards women at the same time. I treat my wife like the center of the world, my business partner, my confidant, the person I take care of and would die for, BUT I also respect her as my intellectual equal, respect that she wants to work a job that is challenging and remunerative and does not take orders, instruction or is in any way except physical strength inferior, subordinate or secondary to me. It is no trouble to give her all the respect and equality any rabid feminist could ever ask for *AND* treat her like a lady, as someone to be taken care of regardless of sacrifice to self and as the most beautiful and precious thing in the universe; if she can put more rounds on target faster than I can, makes more money and supervises more people than I do and has her own opinions that is no threat to my masculinity and I have only contempt for any insecure wussie who WOULD be in any way threatened or even uncomfortable by having their partner capable of doing pretty much anything they do. Any contradictions in the above- and/or being stuck in tradition - of right or left- are for small simple minds
When they talk about the pay inequality (which is horse crap), ask them have they ever looked at the difference in how many men DIE on the job vs women die on the job? We need to equal that up, too...that is in all fairness...
I’ve heard the the devil has put Betty in charge of making sandwiches for the boys at the weekly poker game.
Barefoot and pregnant, eh? I thought it was feminists who advocated the use of boobs as an asset like animal pelt?
Mark my words, leftists love their slaves. It all is about management takeover. They cannot go without Walmart contributions or pimped out whores.
Out of the testicle lockbox and into the woods!
We understand our roles - and responsibilities in the relationship. I honestly did not know in my wildest imagination that marriage could be as good and complete in my life as mine is. Going on 16 years and we’re both about to turn 60.
To be fair, we learned from our past mistakes in our previous lives - and the bible’s instruction.
Please stop posting from that fake website examinerdotcom. Why don't you post it instead on some other site that accommodates narcissist bloggings such as facebook or twitter instead? I am certain that they are far more used to self-serving introspection posted as somehow intelligent rants.
Yup you sound like one of those who lost their balls to a Feminist.
That is because it is from a fake website, made up almost entirely of "citizen reporters" to produce its almost-real news. Which is in actuality nothing more than you could find on someone's personal blog posting -pretty much nothing more than a facebook rant, posted there as "news" and then a pointer to it here so as to get more traffic over that fake site.
A common pattern to attempt to bring up the 'hits' counter by certain fraudulent posters, at a guess because they get paid by the number of hits registered.
Never lost mine. I’ve mocked, cursed and denigrated those mentally-ill hags since the late-60s, right up to the present.
For quite a while I have been noticing the girls all have tattoos and the boys all have piercings. The gays have both.
My greatest hope is that my two remaining daughters find such good and loving men. Our oldest chose very well.
Fake website or not, it’s worth discussing. I’ve heard Glenn Beck mention the manly men book and the concept of talk versus action.
Others have pointed out the over emphasis on problem-solving styles associated with women in, say the public schools. Do you think that it’s a coincidence that zero-tolerance policies that severely punish a kid for giving an aspirin to a friend or playing with something shaped like a gun came along around the same time as large numbers of female administrators? Since I’m a woman myself I hate to lay the blame for the death of common sense at the feet of women, but if the shoe fits, become Imelda Marcos. Oh, and lawyers.
Oh, yeah. I thought maybe it was a pacific NW thing.
I signed up for the mailing list.
Vladimir998 You are correct some men never lost their masculinity but others became intimidated by the feminist movement.
As the author of the book, Mansfield points out that masculinity is about responsibility for actions and decisions rather than “wussingout” and let the government and society make choices for them.
Manly men reject manly women. And feminine women reject feminine men. So the only couplings you tend to see in the deranged world of dykes and fairies is either some bull skank hooked up with a Walter Mitty type, lesbians hooked up with other lesbians, or poofs hooked up with their own. The latter two couplings are not likely to produce any offspring, so the masculinization of women/feminization of men contains the seeds of its own destruction.
craztcatlady Thanks for the response. Not only is Examiner not a fake website but the money I earn by writing for them goes to nonprofit or charity organizations because I have other sources of income.
This month’s beneficiaries will be Casa del los Ninos, St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital and the Wounded Warrior Project.
Thank you to everyone who links this entry in Free Republic to twitter or facebook or other social networking sites.
I haven’t seen this yet. Just the opposite.
IronJack Thank you for the response. I have come to believe that it is the college age generation that needs a wake up call about what it means to be a man or a woman.
Hooking up, sharing venereal diseases, and using sex as recreation is creating both male and female misfits that will be a burden rather than a benefit on society
I am a woman trapped in a man’s body, but I am a lesbian so it all works out.
Ha! D@mn straight! I didn’t stay married for 26 years to a wuss and he’s quite happy about that!
No, it's very real.. really filled with full-screen pop-ups, obnoxious banner ads and free viruses for everyone.
You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.
?? What else would you consider a website that relies upon "citizen reporters" for postings on its site? Especially when I see things like UFO landings and personal blog-postings in the guise of "news" there instead of references to valid news reporting? Even WND and HuffPo have more credibility (and I happen to like WND), since they at least attempt to do some fact-checking and do not attempt to claim that the hits that are redirected to them are in the spirit of "for the children!" I may as well claim that I author articles there and post here to call attention to it because the money I receive from it goes to charities such as "forthesnowmonkeys", "National Organization for the Welfare of Sandpipers (NOWS), "itsforthechildren", and "savethecutekitties", just to name a few. (/sarc)
You can trust it's true, since I just said so. (takes tongue firmly out of cheek.)
Incidentally, FR is not supposed to be used for anyone's personal financial opportunities. I imagine the moment I post something here about a new guaranteed financial opportunity if you just visit (thisotherfakenewsdotcom) and make a contribution, I would quite quickly get banned -and rightly so! You want to earn some money, do it on your own time and your own site, not here.
Spot-on analysis; it’s not a coincidence.
I clicked through to that sump of garbage. Two popups and one obnoxious video that I really didn’t want, running at full blast sound. If there was any content there it really wasn’t worth reaching.
Awful, ain’t it?
You go humblegunner!!!!! Shoot down those blogs like an ace pilot.
Thank you for your input. The divorce rate has been increasing dramatically so obviously the roles presently being acted out by both men and women is not leading to more stable relationships.
Even if one does not agree with author Mansfield’s advice about how to be a manly man, at least someone is looking at what might be causing the breakdown of the family in America.
For every action there is a reaction and what is being seen in society today, so many broken homes, may be a cause and effect.
Your obsession with the Examiner/examiner.com being a ‘fake’ website is rather humorous. Thread after thread here bemoans the “MSM” and “lamestream media,” and the NYT/WaPo/ABC/NBC/CBS/CNN lock on media. What’s wrong with a pro-am media outlet that’s very local? No one is making anyone else read the articles.
it’s gotten to the point where I just look for your comment as soon as there is a blog post heh. Usually you’re pretty quick on the draw, but one I had to scroll down a bit.
Thanks, humblegunner. I am so tired of these fake stories repeatedly appearing on FR in the guise of real news. Someone posts a personal blog and then posts on FR to say “see here, here is some news you must see” and then gets his self-importance puffed up even more because of that? No thanks. I am with you, mate. Let them post on their own site.
This Obama economy has slowed everything down. True story.
