WASHINGTON: Tim Kennedy, a former Green Beret sniper, and MMA athlete was interviewed on Fox recently. Kennedy proposing what seems to be self-evident: That there is a shortage of masculinity. Kennedy is not a voice in the wilderness. He is a man and a soldier slashing away against the wilderness. He views too many overly anemic males, medicated since childhood, who priss-and-pomp for the dominatrix divas.
Femme fatale is the real enemy of civilization.
However, the issue may be not a lack of masculinity, but a surfeit of alpha feminism. There is no stronger group of women decrying masculinity than the alpha feminists who roost on The View. That there are women who, while they may like men, they dislike manhood. There are those women who understand the quality of the sexes. Even while rebuffing the nonsensical and unnatural equality of the sexes. Because apples are apples. Oranges are oranges.
Fortunately, and ironically some understand what Kennedy and the few other men fighting in the wilderness are doing: Mona Charen, Heather MacDonald, and Elaine Donnely, to name three. (Sex Matters: How Modern Feminism Lost Touch with Science, Love, and Common Sense by Mona Charon)
They are the support for masculinity that honors it with the same honor and quality (not equality) that they honor their sex (not gender for the stupid). Three intelligent women that understand Kennedy. Too many men do not.
In his bestselling and highly praised book, A History of Warfare, military historian John Keegan says:
“Women look to men to protect them from danger and bitterly reproach them when they fail as defenders. Women have followed the drum, nursed the wounded, tended the fields and herded the flocks when the man of the family has followed his leader, have even dug the trenches for men to defend and laboured (sic) in the workshops to send them their weapons. Women, however, do not fight. They rarely fight among themselves and they never, in any military sense, fight men. If warfare is as old as history and as universal as mankind, we must now enter the supremely important limitation that it is an entirely masculine activity.”
While war is a tragedy, and universal, historically, it is not the reason for masculinity. War is a natural disorder and something that men engage in to reestablish order. It is mostly physical and requires the physically stronger of the two sexes, namely males.
However, physical attributes are not the complete masculinity picture. Absent for too many men are the attributes of masculinity. Men who act as if they are the same as women. Men who do not feel the need to provide women protection.
That is where masculinity falls when it succumbs to the disease of Political Correctness. (Biological Male ‘Jessica’ Yaniv Can’t Go Swimming Because ‘She’ Forgot ‘Her’ Tampons) The so-called media are gleefully spreading this disease.
In the world of this modern media, with the voices of tepid, timid and namby-pamby men, the wilderness Kennedy is fighting is outgrowing the slashing. There are far fewer Paul Harvey and Ernie Pyle types today and far more Chris Cuomo and Jim Acosta types.
Moreover, with fewer boys growing into manhood, as opposed to “person”-hood, the wilderness grows like Kudzu.
Hence, nature abhors a vacuum. Women like Joan of Arc have taken up the sword not to protect men but to smack them with the adage of “Damnit, do your job!”
Hence the prescient trio mentioned above rises like powerful women. Joan would be proud of them–as well she would feel protected by Tim Kennedy.
Men do not make good sissies. Women do not make good men.
