Manhood Not Measured By Wielding Tools

An article in the British newspaper the Telegraph is lamenting the decline in do it yourself home repairs as evidence in eroding masculinity.

Nothing in the Bible requires men to fritter away the weekend doing home repairs. If one is not good at these things, one is not good at these things.

Why isnít it sufficiently masculine for a man to pay someone else to do this kind of work? Isnít this why God created Mexicans and Rednecks?

Will those now bemoaning the decline of men with these skills have gonads of sufficient circumference and girth to post a similar article about women these days lacking similar aptitude in the kitchen or in cleaning house?

Most of these wenches arenít the prize pigs at the fair either.
