Where Have Our Cojones Gone?
Townhall.com ^ | December 7, 2011 | Ben Shapiro

Posted on 12/07/2011 7:20:36 AM PST by Kaslin

Last week in Boston, a seven-year-old boy named Mark got into a fight with a bully. The bully put his hands around the boy's throat and began to squeeze. That's when Mark fought back; he kicked his aggressor right in the family jewels. In a normal society, we'd celebrate Mark. Throw him a ticker tape parade or something. Bullies need a sharp kick to the testicles. That's how you convince them that bullying is wrong.

But in Boston, Mark was charged with sexual assault.

Just to get this straight: Massachusetts Democrat Barney Frank's gay lover can run a homosexual prostitution ring from his apartment and Frank will not be prosecuted. But a boy kicks a bully in the berries and he faces expulsion from school.

It's not the bully who lost his chestnuts. It's our country.

At some point in the recent past, America moved from the Gilded Age to the Gelded Age. It's no longer considered polite to beat up bullies -- that's simply not "tolerant." All this chatter from the left about the problem of bullying -- Lady Gaga is visiting the White House this week to tell her subordinate, President Obama, what to do about it -- is so much nonsense. The left has no idea how to solve the bullying problem. They treat all violence as equal -- Mark and the bully are on the same moral plane -- and so they recommend counseling and training, as though a little classroom instruction can solve boys' basic biological urge toward aggression.

Have these people ever met little boys?

Apparently not. Lady Gaga has only met her "little monsters," androgynous pantywaists with no distinguishing sexual characteristics. She thinks that homosexual boys are "born this way," but bullies can be changed by a few sensitivity training sessions. The sad truth is that biology can only be overcome by real conditioning, not by nattering. And in the case of bullies, conditioning equals physical violence.

But in our country today, that solution is considered as bad as the problem. The left has instead come up with an alternative solution: eunichism. If male biology drives violence, we have to wash that man right out of the young boys' hair. We will train them not to use toy guns but to play with dolls. We will teach them that heterosexuality and homosexuality are equals, since all sexes are the same. We will teach them that fighting bullies is the same as being a bully. No wonder the left isn't all that upset about female genital mutilation in Muslim countries, they're busily removing the testes of our young boys right here at home.

There's only one problem with this beautiful new world of asexualism: It's idiotic. All we do is train good boys to be pansies; bullies, meanwhile, continue to be bullies. Jerry Sandusky wasn't going to stop raping little boys based on taking a few seminars -- but Mike McQueary was going to avoid reporting that rape to police if he was trained into spinelessness by the surrounding culture. The Muslim Brotherhood isn't going to stop its aggressive pursuit of worldwide Shariah if we offer its members free Lady Gaga tickets and a shopping spree at Sephora. But Western civilization will let them do it if we spend enough time decrying our own aggressive instinct.

The fact is that males' aggressive instinct is good for the world, if channeled properly. Without it, Hitler goes unpunished. Without it, millions continue to starve in the Soviet Union. The key to the aggressive instinct is training it to act along proper moral lines, not eradicating it.

The American people know that down deep. A few months back, a video went viral of a young Sydney boy, Casey Heynes, being bullied by a younger attacker, Richard. Richard punches the much larger Heynes in the face. Then he punches him again. Finally, Heynes can stand it no longer: He picks up Richard and body-slams him to the ground. Richard gets up and wobbles around, off camera. End video.

Elites of the world decried Heynes' behavior. "We don't believe that violence is ever the answer," said John Dalgleish, head of research at Kids Helpline and Boys Town. But tribute sites went up on the Internet to Heynes; videos celebrating his heroics became common fodder. As everyone who has ever faced down a bully knows, the only way to stop a bully is to show him that physical force won't get him anywhere. The only way to show him that is to beat the hell out of him.

We live in a world of bullies. So long as we continue to psychologically castrate our own boys, the bullies of the world will continue winning. We will continue asking why they hate us, and they will continue choking the life out of us. Only if we re-learn to kick them in the cojones rather than removing our own will we emerge victorious.

While French mothers were teaching their sons how to dance, German fathers were teaching their sons how to shoot. Germany subjugated France in six weeks.

Today we remember Pearl Harbor. Could we win WWII today? Would today’s politicians allow a president to drop the atom bomb on an enemy to end the war? We all know the answers to those questions.

One of the first things you do, if you want to destroy a country, is to convince the populace that a violent response to evil is itself always evil. Then, there is no one left to fight. It is the culmination of Burke’s warning of what happens when good men do nothing.

***Whatever happened to self defense?***

My question too and where will our future military men and women be found? In the ranks of the transgendered 8 year-olds?

Self defense is one of the most basic traits of human nature. Had this been a young girl defending herself, perhaps the attitude would have been different - and that is discrimination.

Plant the idea in the minds of children that self-defense is wrong and you can take their guns away when they are adults. Even better, they won’t want to buy guns in the first place.

Nope; kicked in the groin (or in the case of the females, given the purple nipple treatment).

The mother was apparently so annoyed that she took her son and another child and enrolled them in another school. She wouldn’t let her kids stay in the original school even though it sometimes takes 48 hours to complete the transfer process.

Comments at the end of the story show no support for the school’s position and a lot of ridicule which is justified.

These so-called administrators have too much power to destroy kids’ lives. They should be culled from the system.

Photobucket 50 Years ago, an American father would never let a stranger fondle their wives and children like the TSA does now. That person would be picking up his teeth and running home to mommy. Now they just stand there and let it happen. Where have all the real men gone?

One bonus point for correctly saying “cojones,” testicles, rather than “cajones,” dresser-drawers.

Five points off for having to discuss testicles in the first place. I am so tired of males and their genital obsession.

My dad taught me that a bully will always prey on those that will NOT defend themselves. If I wasn’t willing to stand and deliver I deserved to be bullied.

I have always joked that everything I ever needed to learn about international politics I learned on the grade school playground. The weak get picked on. The stupid start fights with the weak to try and prove they are important. The smart and strong never have to fight unless they want to, because they are important. Teachers don't care because talking to the bully's parents is pointless. Finally nobody screws with the crazy kid who might pick up a brick and bash the bully's brains out when he turned his back. Being short, not terribly strong, being from the wrong side of the tracks, and having coke bottle glasses, I soon learned that the best way to keep my lunch money was to be able to convincingly fake crazy.

I had a conversation with one of my sons that other fathers have had. When he was in elementary school he asked me if he would get in trouble for fighting in school. I told yes, he would get in trouble, and I didn’t want him fighting in school. Then I told him “But understand this, don’t you EVER stand there and let someone slap you around. You DEFEND yourself!” I asked him if he understood what I meant and he said he did. Over the years, he didn’t have problems with bullies.

We had trouble with a bully but he picked on the girls. He’d pull out braids, pull the ribbon ties on our dresses, even pull them off our dresses. We were in constant trouble for our dresses having to be repaired. My uncle took me to the garage and showed me how to make a fist. “Keep the thumb along the top of the bottom knuckles. “Stab” forward with the elbow level with the shoulder and forward with a swift and stright, strong arm”
We rode the same bus to school, he was behind me when he pulled the ribbon bow on the back of my dress and tore off one side. I was on the first step getting on the bus. I turned, fist in place and straight armed the kid. I broke his a front tooth. My folks got a call from the mother. I was still in my dress when the call came in and we went to the boys home. His mother saw what he’d done to my dress and discovered he’d done this more than once and to other girls too.

Sane values have been stood on their head, to be replaced with idiocy, insanity, or simply nothing at all.

How much longer can this go on without leading to disaster...?

On further reflection, I think the real problem is the disastrous state of our education system and the subsequent impoverishment of our public and private dialogue. The classical writers and the Founding Fathers had an unabridged dictionary’s worth of vocabulary to discuss the topic of manliness. They did not need to dwell upon their testicles.

And as a side note, doesn’t it indicate a lack of even the most basic manly fortitude for writers to use a foreign language (usually incorrectly, too) instead of English terms for their genitalia? Have the courage of your cojones, machitos!

It is the voters who are to blame. Time after time they elect the individuals who make laws such as this. The lawmakers they elect then appoint people to enforce these laws and make additional rules that co-incide with said laws. The voters are finally getting what they voted for.

You are saying exactly what I have been saying for years. We have people in elective office saying and doing things that would literally have gotten them locked in an insane asylum fifty or sixty years ago while anyone who says what used to be considered incontrovertible wisdom is called a fool or worse. MSNBC gives Al Sharpton his own show, for Pete’s sake? Al Sharpton should be cleaning toilets at the county jail.
