Masculinity? More like the church of entitled teenage girls in the guise of supposedly grown-ass men...

When I think "masculinity," I don't imagine it's poster boy wearing makeup and high heels.

The RNC wasn't just a celebration of Trump - it was a religious revival meant to harken back to a lost golden age

Like, remember the lost golden age of The Black Death?  Back when people didn't believe in science and died because they were ignorant, superstitious, morons?  Remember that golden age?  Now is just like that.

There are a lot of things you can call someone who can't go to Arby's without an AR-15 or screams in the face of a minimum wage worker trying to enforce a private business' mask-wearing policy, bu,t "masculine" is not on that list.

Are you referring to the pre-industrial period where people likely lived whole and satisfying lives in spite of this incredible suffering, because they at least got up every morning and had to exert significant effort towards meaningful and interesting goals that had what appeared to be a tangible impact on the tiny part of the world they existed in?

I think we need MORE Black Death.  It'd thin the weakest individuals out of our population, thereby assuring a permanent Republican majority.

He didn't create it. He just emboldened it to step out into the light.

We need to send a message in November to send them back under their rocks, where they can wither and finally die away - or at least where they won't bother as much.

Are you saying that women and minorities are treated badly? They should be terrified. Their brains worry about revenge. The currently powerless think about moving forward.

When Trump hopefully loses, he should tell his supporters that he's purchased a large parcel of land in Brazil where he plans to build a eutopia, and all are welcome.

And they were never heard from again.

Whiny little biatches like Limbaugh and Hannity have been titty-baby wailing over the airwaves for forty years. Way too many American men accepted and are still accepting the worldview of these weak mouthpieces

Trump was handed the mantle of Chief Crybaby and he ran with it

Bottom line, Trump doesn't create anything

Believe me, it was already there.

Might not be Brazil, but I hear there's a "Jonestown" place not currently being used. Would probably feel just like home. (Just have to cut down some invasive vegetation, but that's no biggie, right?)

Idk if its because I'm gay, because I'm an aspy, or what... but their version of "masculinity" seems particularly fragile, weak, and snowflakish to me. There's so much whining, self-victimization, and crying about how things aren't fair, and so little emphasis on things like a solid work ethic, treating your neighbors well, or any semblance of a moral compass.

Many people are saying that Eric McDaniel is only spewing that nonsense because he is a Black girly man.

No.  It's white men.  Don't use women and girls as a pejorative.  In real life they are less likely to behave like immature entitle brats than white men and boys.

Cohen writes that before winning the presidency, Trump held a meeting at Trump Tower with prominent evangelical leaders, where they laid their hands on him in prayer. Afterward, Trump allegedly said:

"Can you believe that bulls--t? Can you believe people believe that bulls--t?"

With enough population they're the same thing and they're roughly at 33% of the population. But yes it's a group of creeps.

Just curious. What other groups do you view as a monolith besides white men? Do you group together Korean women, or perhaps Latino children?

The trouble is too many intelligent strong people can't risk their jobs for this lone nut to receive a fist in the face, and so his weird ass world view gets a pass.

We tried public shame and ridicule and it's not getting the results we need fast enough.
