    How many of you guys bitching about a war on men fish or hunt? How many of you are fit and strong? How many of you can crank out 10 or more pull-ups and 50 or more push-ups in a set? How many of you work on your own vehicles? How many of you can throw a pack on and spend a week in the wilderness backcountry on foot by yourself?

    If you can't do these things then you need to STFU about a supposed "War on Men" because you have waved the white flag of surrender long ago.

    Oh please. The white male is still in the safest condition by far. The fact that all levels of government have a few programs here or there which provide specific benefit to minorities should not prevent you from considering how relatively untouched the white male is.

    We're asked to become more intellectualized, which has brought attention toward those who did not and will not fit into the "macho" types. Don't worry though, feminists are still often quite disturbed by the world view and attitude of those men.

    Obviously yes, hence the rise of a "bro" culture which in reality is juvenility. Masculinity is marked by gentlemanliness, which is ridiculed as much as possible these days.

    More emotionalized I would say.

    As I have grown older, I see masculinity differently. To me masculinity is the knowing what is right, doing what is right, and standing up for what is right, no matter what difficulties that might entail, even political, financial, physical or mental harm,or death. To the degree one does these things one is masculine. Too often what I see is that people pass for strong, but they either don't know what is right or are afraid to stand up for it when it means they might lose something personally.

    So what do you think? Is there a war going on against masculinity in the United States?
    Against masculinity? I'm not 100% sure about that. There are, however, certain laws and situations which are firmly set up against men, those mentioned in the article for instance. The laws and courts should be blind to sex.

    Let me ask something very specific then. Do you see the attempts by some feminists to create a genderless world as an attack on men?
