The Loss Of Manhood In Western Civilization

Mark Steyn,on the Concordia tragedy:

We are beyond social norms these days. A woman can be a soldier. A man can be a woman. A seven-year-old cross-dressing boy can join the Girl Scouts in Colorado because he “identifies” as a girl. It all adds to life’s rich tapestry, no doubt. But I can’t help wondering, when the ship hits the fan, how many of us will still be willing to identify as a man.
At times past men were judged by the strength they displayed,not just strength in body,but primarily strength in character and emotions.A man didn't cry!A man didn't run from danger!He was a rock.No matter how afraid he may be,he stayed strong for sake of his family,the women and children.

But now,liberalism through feminism has rejected that definition for manhood.In its place they have erected the modern definition for manhood,a man who is in touch with his feelings.Its now ok for a man to cry.Its now ok for a man to confess his fears.Men are no longer expected to lead the way through danger,but to cower in its face.

Its no wonder then when the ship goes down,that men should get in touch with their feelings and leave the women and children behind,as they go to safety.
