The right answer to that problem isn’t to make junk food eating mandatory, or to make training in advance of a Marathon illegal. It isn’t a different starting line for each competitor based on their weight or fitness. The answer, is to make people accountable for the consequences of their bad decisions.
We insulate a great many people from consequences. The women of our society (and the men who think like women) all believe this is a necessary condition of fairness. This idea has become so pervasive that the most extreme advocates of this view now demand that those making bad decisions need to be insulated from having to hear that their decisions are bad. They proclaim that anyone with a different view be silenced so their egos won’t be challenged. They scream with great passion that any disagreement is a product of ‘hate’, ‘racism’, and 'misogyny'.
It isn’t. It's only a reflection of a simple human truth.
This is what I meant when I said that we need masculine solutions to our society’s problems. We need policies which challenge instead of nurture. We don’t need to protect the ‘victims of oppression’, they have been too protected as it is. We need to tell them that they are on their own, and need to fend for themselves.
Children never like to hear this. Who would? When you’ve been raised in a world where others handle your responsibilities, and you receive all the benefits of their labor, sweat, and risk, who wouldn’t want more of the same? This doesn’t make them bad people. It makes them children. And it’s time for America to grow up a little.
Under the America I was raised in, blacks, minorities, and women are all equal under the law. We should begin holding them to an equal standard. No more preference based on how ‘downtrodden’ they are. Just because they declare themselves victims doesn’t make it so. But they are victims in a sense - victims of a culture that lacks the confidence to treat them equally. That needs to stop.
There will be tantrums of course. They will cry, and stamp their feet, and hold their breath. They’ll chain themselves together and wail about unfairness and the need for someone else to handle their lives for them. But this is the wailing of children. Women are persuaded by this, as are men who think like women. But men, are not. Men know that even though they tell us how much they hate us, we are doing what’s best for them.
It’s a cold, dangerous world. Our enemies abound. And we will never fight them off if we become a nation of children and the women who care for them. We need to start acting like men.
