Two Males, No Men

 

 

They don’t make men like they used to. One can consult a Danish study that shows plummeting testosterone levels for scientific confirmation of this. Or, one could more easily turn on any cable news network’s wall-to-wall coverage of the Zimmerman-Martin case, a tragedy involving two males fumbling in the dark on how to be men.

Their households lacked strong male role models; their society, even more so. Four in ten American kids enter the world without their father married to their mother. When schoolboys begin to exhibit traits natural to their sex, the energetic fellows earn the wrath of detention and Ritalin. Any game that highlights contact — from dodgeball to football — comes under attack. Primetime television celebrates the fop and makes a buffoon out of fathers (see Simpson, Homer; Everybody Loves, Raymond).

Civilizing men out of existence has come at great cost to civilization. Instead of men, we get feminine imitations lacking beauty. We get lost boys compensating by becoming barbarians. We get Sanford, Florida, February 26, 2012.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Why Are Our Teachers Telling Our Kids To Be Afraid Of Guns?

 

Glenn Beck School Guns

 

” Tonight on The Glenn Beck Program, Glenn focused on some of the insane stories making headlines in the news. A kid suspended from school for making a gun out of a pastry. Another teen suspended for wrestling away a loaded weapon from another student. Why are these the lessons being taught to our kids? Why are our students being taught to be terrified of guns and to sit down and wait for first responders when faced with a real threat? Glenn looks at the insanity permeating schools today in a monologue that should leave parents taking a hard look in the mirror and wondering how much longer they’ll allow this indoctrination to go on.”

 

 

Canadian Youth Soccer Leagues Stop Keeping Score

” I heard about this on Red Eye Radio about an hour ago and it’s too silly to let go without comment. Some youth soccer leagues in Canada have decided not to keep score of the games or publish the standings of teams, anymore. I guess this is all part of the “helping self-esteem” movement for kids. From the Toronto Star:

Tessa’s league is one of many across the province that will stop keeping score and tabulating standings this season in an attempt to shift the focus of kids’ soccer away from winning and toward skills development.

Some leagues and age groups started last season, others will adopt the approach this year, and by 2014 it will be mandatory across Ontario for all competitive players under 12.

It’s part of a well-established, research-supported and holistic approach to player development, common in soccer-rich countries and endorsed by the sport’s brightest minds.”
