The New York Times has an article, "27 Ways to Be a Modern Man," which unwittingly explains by showing how liberals are The last 50 years have seen the undermining of the adult male in the United States in the name of feminism, supplanting responsible, self-reliant men with sallow imitations of adults. Universities do all they can to discourage males -- only 40% of college students are male -- as do increasingly other institutions.
Liberals want men to be boys.
From the article:
1. When the modern man buys shoes for his spouse, he doesn't have to ask her sister for the size. And he knows which brands run big or small.
Boys help mommy.2. The modern man never lets other people know when his confidence has sunk. He acts as if everything is going swimmingly until it is.
Boys put on brave little fronts.3. The modern man is considerate. At the movie theater, he won’t munch down a mouthful of popcorn during a quiet moment. He waits for some ruckus.
Men eat quietly. Boys don't.4. The modern man doesn't cut the fatty or charred bits off his fillet. Every bite of steak is a privilege, and it all goes down the hatch.
Mommy cuts a boy's meat.5. The modern man won’t blow 10 minutes of his life looking for the best parking spot. He finds a reasonable one and puts his car between the lines.
OK, I cannot understand why this is an issue.6. Before the modern man heads off to bed, he makes sure his spouse’s phone and his kids' electronic devices are charging for the night.
Men make sure the doors were locked and everyone was safe. That includes not pampering children.7. The modern man buys only regular colas, like Coke or Dr Pepper. If you walk into his house looking for a Mountain Dew, he’ll show you the door.
Boys are rude. Men treat guests as they want to be treated.8. The modern man uses the proper names for things. For example, he’ll say “helicopter,” not “chopper” like some gauche simpleton.
Boys say things. Men fly them.9. Having a daughter makes the modern man more of a complete person. He learns new stuff every day.
Boys learn from girls. Men teach their children.10. The modern man makes sure the dishes on the rack have dried completely before putting them away.
Boys use dishwashers. Men do things right and use the sink.11. The modern man has never “pinned” a tweet, and he never will.
Men favorite shit they like, ignore the tweets they don't.12. The modern man checks the status of his Irish Spring bar before jumping in for a wash. Too small, it gets swapped out.
Boys use soap. Men use body wash. Shampoo and soap in one.13. The modern man listens to Wu-Tang at least once a week.
Sinatra. Daily. 71 on Sirius XM.14. The modern man still jots down his grocery list on a piece of scratch paper. The market is no place for his face to be buried in the phone.
OK, on this we agree.15. The modern man has hardwood flooring. His children can detect his mood from the stamp of his Kenneth Cole oxfords.
Men don't stomp their feet and throw hissy fits, and certainly they do not buy flooring based on such actions.16. The modern man lies on the side of the bed closer to the door. If an intruder gets in, he will try to fight him off, so that his wife has a chance to get away.
Men sleep closest to the gun, and let their wife have the closest access to the bathroom as they have to do female things in the middle of the night.17. Does the modern man have a melon baller? What do you think? How else would the cantaloupe, watermelon and honeydew he serves be so uniformly shaped?
Boys play with their food. Men slice melons with proper cutlery.18. The modern man has thought seriously about buying a shoehorn.
Boys dream. Men do. Men own shoehorns without a second thought.19. The modern man buys fresh flowers more to surprise his wife than to say he is sorry.
Flowers are to celebrate.20. On occasion, the modern man is the little spoon. Some nights, when he is feeling down or vulnerable, he needs an emotional and physical shield.
Men protect their women.21. The modern man doesn't scold his daughter when she sneezes while eating an apple doughnut, even if the pieces fly everywhere.
What fresh hell is this? Cover your mouth, kid.22. The modern man still ambles half-naked down his driveway each morning to scoop up a crisp newspaper.
Sends son to fetch the paper.23. The modern man has all of Michael Mann’s films on Blu-ray (or whatever the highest quality thing is at the time).
Oh for God's sake, who watches his crap?24. The modern man doesn't get hung up on his phone’s battery percentage. If it needs to run flat, so be it.
Meh.25. The modern man has no use for a gun. He doesn't own one, and he never will.
Better to have one and not need it then to need one and not have it.26. The modern man cries. He cries often.
Grow.27. People aren't sure if the modern man is a good dancer or not. That is, until the D.J. plays his jam and he goes out there and puts on a clinic.
Lady's choice.I am not saying men should be jerks. Quite the opposite. I am saying we should not be patsies. Actually, you can follow his list and still be a man if -- and only if -- you follow the actual rules of the game, which is the Code of the West:
Defend yourself whenever necessary.The whole list is here.
Look out for your own.
Remove your guns before sitting at the dining table.
Never order anything weaker than whiskey.
A cowboy is pleasant even when out of sorts. Complaining is what quitters do, and cowboys hate quitters.
Always be courageous. Cowards aren't tolerated in any outfit worth its salt.
A cowboy always helps someone in need, even a stranger or an enemy.
Never shoot a woman no matter what.
Live by the Golden Rule.

Now readers may wonder how does this tearing down American males leads to Islam. With a quarter-billion Christians living here, America is the largest Christian nation in the world . People respect strength. If Christian males are all boys, women will seek men. While you are out buying her shoes, someone else is banging her. It is a metaphor for a nation. We already see liberals opting for Islam. The American Taliban was raised by rich hippies. The liberal-to-Islam shift will increase as long as men act like boys.
I really do not think liberals have thought this one through.
