Men, manliness and testosterone

First it's the article on Foreign Affairs about the Patriarchy, now it's a book by a Harvard grand Poobah called Harvey C. Mansfieldor, titled "Manliness". According to a Yale review "This is the first comprehensive study of manliness, a quality both bad and good, mostly male, often intolerant, irrational, and ambitious." And I would take it, very manly. You can go here to get some pointers on how to be more manly.

If only Patriarchy didn't also signify oppression of women. Because these writers are assuming that men will become more manly, go out and fight wars, bring home the bacon and take care of the children, never talking about the other side of manliness. When they come home and slap the little woman around or invade pillage and rape their enemies. Yeah!! I believe this man stuff! Look around you!
