  • Who Wants To Marry An Angry Amazon? (Not Me)

    A male friend was upset after going to see the latest Star Wars movie. “What happened to Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, and Obiwan Kenobi?” he wondered. “The new macho hero is a woman,” he said. “The admiral is a woman. The general is a woman. All the decision-makers are women. The bad guys are all men and the ‘good guy’ men are all bumbling idiots,” he griped. “The 40-year-old series has discarded the masculine idea that a hero has to train for years to attain mastery,” he added. “The heroine doesn’t have to train. She knows everything magically because of her woman’s intuition. None of this bears any relation to real life,” my friend concluded. “What the hell is going on?”

    A very insightful question, considering the challenge to our sexual identity. The Left, egged on by radical feminists, is attempting to destroy the natural order of things. Forget traditional, outmoded sex roles. The American woman is discouraged from doing something that is written into her genes, i.e., being a wife and mother. She is told that she must pursue careers in fields that traditionally have been dominated by men. Women are not seen as equal—they are more equal. If there is a difference between men and women, the fems insist, it is that women are smarter and more capable. That seems to include everything from running corporations to service in front line combat units. Women are encouraged to see themselves as Amazons with unlimited power over the male of the species. Hollywood is leading the charge with a rash of propaganda movies portraying women as warriors and men as weaklings. Today’s Arnold Schwarzenegger is Angelina Jolie. No sane woman would ever believe that she could do these things. The irony is women are still complaining that they are underrepresented in Hollywood. What a laugh. If what we see at the box office is any indication, women are running the place.

    Men, on the other hand, are blamed for all of society’s ills. While women are courageous, men are hairy brutes. The campaign against alleged sexual predators is a manifestation of the war against men. Sexual abuse allegations are aimed at just a few dozen high-profile men, but the implication is that all men are responsible. Leftists, who love this gender war, want men to apologize for their “toxic masculinity.” This is pure sexism driven by a small but angry cadre of power-hungry radical feminists who have been enabled by our politically correct society.

    Thanks to the feminist assault, there is mass confusion about what it means to be male. I’m glad I am not 19. Young men are not sure who they ought to be, how they should behave, or what they should aim for. A generation of children is being raised to believe that active masculinity is pathological. Boys are encouraged to turn away from their natural masculine inclinations. “Almost all manifestations of male sexuality are going to be brought under legal control,” warns Canadian psychologist Jordan Peterson. Support for this alarm can be found on college campuses, which, according to Forbes, have “opted to condemn manliness.” It is no surprise that—for the first time—men constitute a minority of college students.

    Some extreme feminists have suggested that the mere possession of a penis is dangerous. I get the impression that many angry women would love nothing better than to prohibit men altogether. They must imagine a future where all the women are lesbians and a few men are kept in cages to be farmed for their sperm. At the very least, feminists advocate that we need more women in positions of power for no reason other than their sex. Sorry Hillary, that’s just not a good enough reason.

    And now for the worst part. The unfortunate casualty in this cultural upheaval is the male-female relationship. Women are taught that men are to blame for female victimization. In other words, women are encouraged to hate men. This does not bode well for the courtship process. Every man I know is painfully aware that women have turned angry. What man in his right mind wants to have children with such women? Many American men are choosing to be single or they are seeking brides from other cultures. One of my friends is constantly singing the praises of Asian women because he is sick and tired of “angry, castrating American women.”

    And what about the innocent women who are caught up in the madness against their will? Don’t suppose for a minute that all women support the new sexual revolution. It’s very tough on the women who are expected to conform. “There is something wonderful about having a man in your life,” lamented a female friend in response to the colossal pressure she feels to become a “liberated” woman. “It is wonderful to be able to depend upon a strong man,” she said, “to be able to enjoy your feminine side.” There is an argument to be made for traditional sex roles. After all, these roles have been hardwired into our brains for a million years. A tiny minority of angry women is attempting to throw a monkey wrench into the wiring. As a case in point, just look at last year’s “Women’s March” where a few nutty celebrities managed to dupe thousands of unsuspecting women into espousing left-wing gibberish.

    If men and women don’t want to pair up, what is the future for our culture? The replacement rates in Western democracies are insufficient to maintain the current population levels, so the procreative slack is being picked up by Muslim immigrants who are not plagued with the constraints imposed by Western feminism. Muslims don’t have to worry about any of this sexual confusion. They know exactly who they are. The men simply tell their women to shut up, keep their faces covered, and have more babies. Well, guess what—that’s what we have in store if we continue to mess around with biological sex roles and set men and women at each other’s throats. As a well-known felon once said, “Can’t we all just get along?”
