Thanks to one of Laura’s comments at post 624.1 for this inspiration.
“Oh, you know, boys will be boys!” Isn’t that an old saying many of us used to hear? Heard it lately? I sure haven’t. It used to be a widely accepted “excuse” for much of the silliness, or brashness, or stupidity, or many other behaviors we would see boys exhibit. No longer.
Nope. It’s no longer politically correct or acceptable to just let “boys be boys”. That’s because as a culture, we’re too busy trying to turn them into girls.
Yep. Collectively, we just can’t keep the scissors in the drawer. That’s because the PC feminist elite realized the best way to fight patriarchy, chauvinism, and the existence of cock-strong men is to socially neuter young boys – before they can ever defend themselves against it. Yep, they need those scissors to figuratively snip, snip, snip the stones off of young boys.
No touch policies in public schools? Snip. Games of shadow tag on the playground? Snip. No dodge ball in the gymnasium? Snip. Soccer practice with Mom instead of football practice with Coach? Snip.
Unlike the emasculation of men in the ‘70’s (Woody Allen, Alan Alda, and many others come to mind) who were capable of defending themselves but chose not to, young boys don’t know they are being victimized. And it’s not a fair fight. Usually, when adults victimize boys, it’s called child abuse.
These days it’s called motherly emasculation.
More to come…
