    This post reminds me of one of the great old TV comedies -

    Unfortunately, it works both ways. No way in hell a show like "All in the Family" would be televised nowadays out of concern for "sensitivity," "diversity," "propriety" and a half-dozen other words ending in "-ity".

    Re: Wussification of America

    There are many reasons for wussification.... and its happening everywhere. Europe isn't really doing all that better in this chapter. It's all a big pile of crap that is collectively being forced down our necks, and if you don't like it you're ostracized.

    I don't know who them the OP was talking about were, and I don't care... they don't matter in the large scale of things.

    There's the sense of entitlement since we don't let kid's experience failure nowadays. That includes things from not letting kids fail at school when their results are insufficient to handing out participation trophies. Some schools are even banning sporting activities to prevent anyone from feeling like a loser.

    We surrender to just about any complaint, rather that seeing if any of the responsibility falls on the complainant. For example, schools are removing a cross or picture of Jesus if one or two people complain, even if a hundred want it there. Someone needs to speak up and tell them to ignore it if they don't like it.

    You might say "the older generation always says the younger is worse." However, the upward trends for the numbers in divorce, kids born out of wedlock, government handouts, obesity, average age people live with parents until, etc. speak for themselves.

    What will it take to get society to acknowledge these mistakes and fix them? Feel free to add more.

    Eric Bolling: Mike Rice Firing Symbol Of 'The Wussification Of American Men' (VIDEO)
    Would you mind if they put up a picture up Islamic art in a school? Or would you be screaming "SHARRIIIAA LAWWWW."

    People experience failure ALL THE TIME, also I havn't heard of any schools banning sports, and if they exist they are a huge minority.

    Calling people **** and faggot will get you fired from most jobs.

    there is no wussification, if you need to berate people or hit them, or put people down to feel like a man, you are a wuss to begin with.

Anyone who knows the basics of reverse-engineering can give the most likely reasons as to why men are physically stronger, women softer, men less emotional thinkers, etc. I credit a lot of my successful marriage to my wife and me being very traditional. From the day she moved in with me, we didn't even have to discuss responsibilities.
    When do you hear women wanting to join male football? They are few and far between ... and you know how to deal with it? You don't talk to those people.

    My OP wasn't focused on Rutgers either. Some people can't figure out the moral of a story.

    However, since you posted the video, it shows the effects of that wussification. If even one of those players had any kind of gonads at all the story would have been "Rutgers coach found duct taped to goat on campus quad"

    Re: Wussification of America

    Woody Hayes got fired back in the late 70's for punching an opposing teams player and though the player wasn't hurt Hayes had a history of abusive behavior. It's usually cumulative before action is taken not from only a few incidents, which is probably normal for high octane, competitive sports.

    Otherwise not letting young people be held accountable for their actions is not a great idea. The country is becoming lost in superficiality and feel good fantasies, instead of dealing with reality. We're getting our priorities all screwed up.

    You've never seen The Daily Show and The Colbert Show then?
