New York Times Propagates Mixed Message Regarding Manhood

Published in the 9/27/15 edition of the New York Times is a list titled “27 Ways To Be A Modern Man.”.

A few are just common courtesy such as not scarfing down mouthfuls of popcorn in a movie theater while others are trying to watch the feature presentation.

Others are just a bunch of foo foo nonsense that one would expect from the New York Times.

For example, if I don't want to eat the fatty or charred bits of a steak or if I drink Mountain Dew as a preferred soda, that is my business.

It is, after all, my individual digestive tract.

Another reads, “The modern man uses the proper names for things. For example, he’ll say 'helicopter,' not 'chopper' like some gauche simpleton.”

Frankly, how often does a man concerned about being perceived as one verbalize the word “gauche”?

A number were downright hypocritical and dangerous when taken together.

Principle sixteen reads, “The modern man lies on the side of the bed closer to the door. If an intruder gets in, he will try to fight him off, so that his wife has a chance to get away.”

Yet principle twenty-five instructs, “The modern man has no use for a gun. He doesn’t own one, and he never will.”

What about to shoot AND KILL the intruder?

A husband might have a moral obligation to defend his family.

However, he should also be allowed the most technologically effective means to accomplish this task that will likely result in the least amount of physical harm to himself.

There is no reason that a man is obligated to die for some other idiot's moronic principle that has nothing whatsoever to do with the way the world actually exists.
