Masculinity Crisis: The End of Male

Traditional manhood aside, today’s real masculinity crisis is biological—environmental endocrine disruptors common in plastics and fertilizers may be contributing to rapidly declining fertility.

I signed up for a fertility test not because I’m trying to have a kid (please) but as a barometer of my maleness, in its most medieval, distilled sense. Admittedly, it was a ridiculous thing to do. But I was curious. As you may have heard, male anxiety is on the rise in 21st-century America. Employers no longer value our strength to lift or make things (we sent those jobs overseas). Society is sick of our risk-taking bravado (that’s what crashed the economy). Women don’t need our financial support (matriarchy is the new patriarchy). Every week there’s a new think piece or cover story ripping holes in the trappings of traditional manhood.

As a gay man, I welcome the growing irrelevance of old-school masculinity. I’m less likely now than at any point in history to be impeded by my failure to conform to traditional notions of manhood. I can be the CEO of Apple. I can be a drag queen. Whatever I choose, I’m still a man.

But a creeping masculinity crisis, one that’s biological, affects me just as much as any frat boy or military officer. Around the world, male fertility is sharply declining. Birth defects afflicting the penis and testicles are on the rise. So is testicular cancer. Scientists expect that these problems will plague future generations even more than ours.

The Saturday Evening Post, October 26, 1929, published an interview in which Einstein stated:

"As a child, I received instruction both in the Bible and in the Talmud. I am a Jew, but I am enthralled by the luminous figure of the Nazarene...

No one can read the Gospels without feeling the actual presence of Jesus. His personality pulsates in every word.

No myth is filled with such life."

What atheists should say to the parents of the Sandy Hook victims:

"As atheists, we truly feel awful for you. And we promise to work for more gun control. But the truth is we don't have a single consoling thing to say to you because we atheists recognize that the human being is nothing more than matter, no different from all other matter in the universe except for having self-consciousness. Therefore, when we die, that's it. Moreover, within a tiny speck of time in terms of the universe's history, nearly every one of us, including your child, will be completely forgotten, as if we never even existed. Life is a random crapshoot. Our birth and existence are flukes. And you will never see your child again."

When the Kansas-Nebraska Act attracted pro-slavery Democrats to Kansas, Henry Ward Beecher (brother to Harriet Ward Beecher the anti slavery advocate and author of Uncle Tom's Cabin) bought hundreds of Sharps Rifles and shipped them to anti-slavery settlers. 

The New York Tribune, February 8, 1856, printed that Beecher:

"...believed that the Sharps Rifle was a truly moral agency...

that there was more moral power in one of those instruments, so far as the slaveholders of Kansas were concerned, than in a hundred Bibles. 

You might just as well...read the Bible to Buffaloes as to those fellows...but they have a supreme respect for the logic that is embodied in Sharp's rifle."

Sharps Rifle became called "Beecher's Bible."

Beecher pressured Lincoln to issue the Emancipation Proclamation.

"An actor tells us Mr. Obama is “lord and savior”. An artist depicts him as the crucified Jesus, crown of thorns included.

Not long ago Obama joked he was not born in a manger. We still don’t know where he was born.

He can work miracles however.

Six million evangelicals voted for him, even though he endorses the practice of murdering babies who survive abortion."

I doubt it, haha. Anyway, this must also mean Christian women (and men) are truly a minority in this country. no surprise there though.

The following was taken from the article linked at the bottom.

 

A majority of Americans chose the path of 18th century Frenchmen and 1930 Germans last night. A majority chose to vote for “revenge,” for redistribution of wealth, for abortion on demand, for abandoning Israel and for “leaning forward” in front of Dan Savage and Vladimir Putin. A majority of Americans chose to steal from their neighbors, their neighbor’s children and their own children…

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

As a child my parents taught me that Thanksgiving was about more than football and eating too much. My sister and I were encouraged to reflect on the things that were truly important.Just a few of the things I am thankful for:My health. While I often joke that "I've I'd known I was going to live so long I'd have taken better care of myself" I am very thankful that I've made it to 52 and can still do anything I choose without worrying about my body. My wife's health. Over the past month I've…See More
