The anti-masculine plague that will harm us all.
A heartfelt congratulations on the new, wonderful addition to your family. And thank you for another thought provoking essay. I remember Audie Murphy & the movie “To Hell and Back.” I was unaware of the interesting story of Samuel Whittemore.
In my opinion, this misplaced situation with women vs. men began with the start of the “me generation.” However, there is hope — actually beer — look what some beer drinkers are doing to show their distaste when they sense a line has been crossed. A few good men (and women) have risen to the occasion. (It takes a lot but we usually do.) It could be a trend.
Hi Jenna, I was thinking of that song a few days ago.
Back then, the songwriter got it right.
Today, I want my grandsons to grow up to be cowboys. Rough, rugged, and can shoot but with a tender heart to raise their boys.
Men will always be men. The ones shrieking the loudest will be heard for now, but when the shit hits the fan, the shrieking will stop, and the men will step up and reclaim their rightful place.
That day is coming.
Great piece, as usual. I love the way you embrace a topic and bring it to life.
I have been absent for a bit, it's been a rough five months, but your essays have given me a respite for a few minutes. Thank you.
Kudos, Jenna! Spot on.
From another country song: "Dad a quiet man who's gentle voice was seldom heard; he could borrow money at the bank simply on his word."
Inspiring work as usual. It's always a blessing to see a new post and know today will be more fun, or nostalgic, or downright kickass-sometimes all three!
The heroes of legends are awe inspiring and live in our chests forever. As men those heroes fade as we strive to be as good of fathers, brothers, sons, and uncles as those that we watched quietly till the soil from which we grew as boys.
Beautifully written. A total pleasure. Thank you.
Well written and timely piece! I enjoyed reading it.
Excellent essay. Excellent diabolical plan. First the destruction of masculinity then the destruction of womanhood.
