In ancient cultures, the young male was made to be sovereign, separated from the safe arms of the feminine touch usually at the ripe old age of ? twelve.  Young men were expected to separate, never to return to a codependent existence. 

Traditionally, young men fled from getting in touch with their supposed ?feminine side? and instead they tapped into the gritty and grubby competitive ?real world? where you thrive or die.  (By the way ? if I want to get in touch with my feminine side ? I?ll grab my wife.)

Unfortunately, in the home, in the church, and with our government ? thanks to the societal deconstructionists, we have created an extended womb with an umbilical cord of enormous proportions that can sucker and baby men all the way up until their mid-life crises.  Historically, this co-dependent wet womb which is presently afforded chronologically mature males past adolescence has utterly weakened whatever society in which it has been allowed to fester.

Lastly, the most distinctive trait of the tri-fold traditional masculine make up is the way men are to take care of those under their watch ? i.e., being responsible and accountable for the well being of family and society. 

Naturally, men were the pillars of the public, being responsible to God, to family, to church and to their culture as providers and protectors of family and friends.  It was the man who steered the family unit and civilization with firmness, directing them with rules and principles, being dependable, loving and just.  In ancient times the father was not a mere Al Bundy-like sperm donor who lived at Hooters, but a community elder, a moderator and a servant leader who created edicts and ordered kingdoms. 

One bigger-than-Dallas-sized sign that America could be headed down the toilet is how today?s metrosexual man avoids responsibility and accountability and is allowed to blame low blood sugar, his inner child, the environment or the freaky yellow wall paper on his delivery room wall as the reason why he hasn?t ?gotten with it.? 

My ClashPoint is this: if concerned conservatives want to improve our nation, then we have got to resist the current culture of man hatred, wherever and whenever we find it, whether that means not going to movies with an emasculating message, or shouting ?that?s bull**t? when we hear and see this stuff on TV or in the classroom, or, more positively, developing old school ways of creating environments conducive to raising warriors and wild men. Whatever peaceful form this resistance takes ? it is a must that we verbally wail our disapproval of this incessant dissing of men.

Look, our times demand strong men more than Mariah Carey does Evian ? and only Evian water for her Pekinese.  It is up to us middle-aged old boys to preserve and perpetuate the grand testosterone fog God created us to live in for the next generation of young warriors. 

One great way to do this is by buying these killer books:
· Future Men by Douglas Wilson
· The Church Impotent by Leon Podle
· Raising Modern Day Knights by Robert Lewis
· The Code of Man by Waller Newell

Then, go over their contents with the male adolescent charges under our tutelage.
