I actually agree with him and his essay. He's a bit extreme in the second half but society has become a lot softer since women got the vote. I also think that women are responsible for political correctness.

It's the logical conclusion. If you think that's sexist, you're either childish, blind or stupid.
softer as in less war and death and killing? how is that a bad thing?

Softer as in

Teachers unable to discipline naughty kids
Parents unable to smack naughty kids
Homeowners unable to defend their property
Prisons unable to mistreat criminals
Managers unable to sack staff
Courts unable to discipline kids

Stupid words like

He tries to pin all the ills of society on the feminisation (to replace his word) of men. This is inaccurate although it applies to a few of his points. But he fails to realise that society is changing, and that means everyone. The real man is changing. So he should perhaps stop living in the past.

I probably wouldn't have said this if I hadn't studied The Full Monty for my English coursework at GCSE. The film is a great display of how men have to adapt and correct their foibles, and understand that society demands more of the modern man than simply breadwinner. It shows that no dignity is lost by improving oneself (and the author of the essay did say men shouldn't have to improve themselves), rather it is respected and there is dignity in coming out a better human being.

I used to front like a 'jack-the-lad' because I believed that if I was my true self I would display relative weakness. In fact my lack of self-confidence was a blatantly obvious weakness. Bu having gained my self-confidence I believe I am stronger and more dignified and respected for it. I stand more of a chance with the ladies too! Point being, I'm all the better for being proud of my feminine side, and all real men would be too.

society has changed, but people are created equal and deserve the same share in politics, and many other things, as each other. and better these things then teachers abusing kids, or not having police officers and fire fighters!
