From Ms. seatdown's announcement, I was rather inspired to write this.
Recently, I was on a service call in a church, in my travels, I came accross a book titled, Maximized Manhood: A Guide to Family Survival by a Edwin Louis Cole, copyrighted 1982. In the foreword, by Ben Kinchlow (Co-host of 700 club), he makes the following statement:
"There is a very interesting phenomenon occurrng in Twentieth Century America. From birth to late teens, a child's overwelming perception of authority figures is nearly 100% female, with an occasional male making a generally ineffectual appearance.
In the hospital, female nurses are responsible for almost every aspect of child care. At home, mother is usually the dominant authority figure. And, 90% of the teachers in grade school are - you got it- women. The first police person a child meets is more likely a female crossing guard.
When a child goes to the movies, the grocery store, department stores, fast food restaurants, fancy sit-down restaurants, vacation Bible school or Sunday school, who sells the tickets, takes the orders, collects the money, shows you where to sit, tells you about God? (Except in many churches where a man preaches to a a congregation consisting of mostly hwomen.) Who tells you what to wear, to clean up your room; who spends the money, pays the bills, who pays the bills (*I underlined this part for the amusement for a few here) Is it any wonder that today's man is making every effort to demonstrate that's he's a real man - like mom.
So today's man may wear jewlery-bracelets, necklaces, and perhaps, an earring. He has long hair, usually styled by a unisex hairstylist; he wears unisex pants and soft, silky shirtsopened to display "cleavage" Or, he may be a "macho man" who acts irresponsibly with his wife and children, or indulges in sexual "freedom" and does his"own thing."
In any case, man is "liberated." Or, so he's been told by the feminist principles which are designed to undercut his position as a male."
...I'll cut the foreward off at this point...(It goes on for another two full pages. No, I am NOT going to type the whole thing.)
