I hate to get your panties in a wad, you pomosexual gender-line-blurrers , you, but the vast, vast majority of American men want to be more like William Wallace and less like Will and Grace. 

From the thousands of positive emails I receive week after week from men and women regarding my polemic attempts in print, radio and TV to re-inject, guard and perpetuate the testosterone attitude ? it seems that the general populace isn?t queuing up for a radical dose of 21st century misandry.

Yes, much to my delight, we ?non-progressives? are not cool with the metrosexual healing the cultural quacks are attempting to administer to the male collective, and we are going back towards the traditional definitions of the role of men in society.

So ? what are the traditional elements of the masculine spirit?  Well, from Homer to Gomer, from Abraham to the Apostle Paul, there are three primary traits that men, if properly raised and allowed to express their biology, will and should naturally exhibit. 

They are the following: 
· Competition
· Independence
· Responsibility

Last week?s column addressed the good and natural competitive streak with which men come out of momma?s womb, and now I?ll turn my guns to points two and three: Independence and Responsibility.

The second classic characteristic men will naturally exhibit, that is, if they escape the aggressive societal softening of the metrosexual emasculators, is ? independence. 

Traditionally, men have prized their autonomy more than Clay Aiken does his gale-force-wind-proof hair gel and his chartreuse neckerchief.   Men, at least those who have not been morphed into obedient stooges of contemporary society, do not like to be confined, corralled, curbed, interfered with, or domesticated by anyone.

Y?know it is right for a man while he is a boy to be dependant upon mummy ? petted and cajoled ? flattered and fattened ? by mother?s you-can-do-no-wrong-honey loving touch.  But come on, America ? somehow we have developed today a race of Nancy-boys, absolute caricatures of the classic male imago, who have extended their mommy?s breast feeding, culture?s coddling and government?s hand holding into their 30?s and beyond! 

At the hub of man?s constituent make up is the natural and spiritual resistance to hanging on to any mortal or institution too long for subsistence.  By natural command, man is to be independent and is hard wired to go and get a life apart from the nurturing and supportive arms of anyone ? and that includes the government.
