I've been explaining feminism, and refuting its fallacies, for many years. All the while, I've been hoping that some brave and articulate men would speak up against the stupidity of trying to move us all into a gender-neutral society. Finally, a man has done this. I am so happy to read a newspaper column by Dennis Prager that tells it like it is. He says how important it is for society to get boys to grow up to be good men. He points out that if men learn how to control themselves and to channel their nature in positive directions, they make the world a much better place. The good man is a glory of civilization. On the other hand, males who don't grow up are likely to do a lot of mischief, and women and society suffer.
Dennis Prager criticizes the feminist movement for trying to obsolete the ideals of masculinity and femininity. He criticizes the feminist dogma that male and female are essentially the same. Prager points out that the feminists have created a society in which men no longer have distinctive roles. He says that men do best when they are relied on, when they are needed, when they have a role that is different from women's role. The feminists have worked hard to obliterate these distinctions. Traditional differences still exist only in sports and the military, and the feminists are trying to get rid of men's sports and to make the military gender-neutral. One of the worst aspects of this feminist attack on masculinity is that marriage is increasingly regarded as optional. The male ideal is no longer a married man, protecting and supporting his wife and their children.
Dennis Prager concludes that, when boys do not become men, women assume the man's role. The feminists say that's what they want, but all surveys show that women are not as happy as they were 40 years ago under the old rules of masculine and feminine identity. Thank you, Dennis Prager, for saying some things that need to be said.
