'Con man' is short for 'confidence man.'    We should go back to the full title to help idiots out.

The governments of fascist nations tend to be almost exclusively male-dominated. Under fascist regimes, traditional gender roles are made more rigid. Divorce, abortion and homosexuality are suppressed and the state is represented as the ultimate guardian of the family institution.

And the poor man's idea of a rich man
And the stupid man's idea of a smart man
And the corrupt man's idea of an ethical man
And the Nazis' idea of a reincarnated furher

How does a New York shyster moron who epitomizes the "Liberal Elites" wind up being idolized by flyover redneck dipshiats oh I answered my own question.

How can he weaponize masculinity when he doesn't even know what that is?

Neither do his followers, so he can make up whatever he wants.

He's done a huge favor for the gender studies crowd.  Any time someone asks about the phrase "toxic masculinity", they can just say, "Remember that asshole from The Apprentice?"

fta: ""Even Fox said you were low-energy," a woman purrs in one ad about the Republican convention's TV ratings. "We know. It's different now. You're tired. It's hard to keep your [meaningful pause] ratingsup."

A nice kick in the nads there.

Toxic masculinity is absolutely a thing and it has to die.

It's why men don't show affection to their sons.
It's why men don't express emotions.
It's why men need male-oriented hygiene products.
It's why men get ridiculed for being cheerleaders or nurses.
It's why men get teased for playing the flute in middle school.
It's why men get bullied for wearing pink.
It's why men don't do to the doctor when they're sick.
It's why men won't wear masks.
It's why men murder gay men and trans women.

Toxic masculinity is a pernicious manifestation of misogyny that makes some men eschew anything even distantly associated with women and femininity, made all the worse because society views maleness/femaleness and masculinity/femininity as fully interchangeable.

Holy fark, rense.com.  That's a website I haven't seen since, I dunno, the early '00s.  I agree with your post, but, and no offense given here, Rense isn't the best site to link to.
 
2020-10-28 4:43:20 PM  
That's a lot of words to say he confuses masculinity with misogyny.

I would argue with your statement but I am afraid to.

I'm pretty skeptical of the idea that men posses all the noble human qualities packaged into a convenient package called 'manliness' to begin with, but the idea that donnie dipshiat possesses any of those traits is beyond laughable.

He is...at least here in Texas.  The *vast* majority of right-wingers I know believe 1) anyone who disagrees with their right-wingery is a liberal and 2) liberals all look like that "college liberal" meme and are somewhere left, in philosophy, of Janeane Garofalo.  Every guy who isn't like that *must* be a swaggering badass (just not as much as they are).  When they find out differently, you're either misguided or weird.

You libs can say what you will about our President, but he's done his part in trying to normalize men wearing make-up and high heels. That's more than Obama did.

"He's a vibrant man. He's strong. This man, he looks stronger than Biden. Let's admit it," Thompson said.

The guy wears oversized suits to hide his belly, has a comb over on his comb over, wears lifts, and spray tans.

If he put as much effort into being President as he did to how he looks, we would be in real trouble.

Earlier today he went on a nonsensical rant about how Joe Biden wouldn't be able to win a UFC match.

I wish I was kidding.

Trump doesn't even measure up to the fantasies the right has about manliness. He's mentally and physically weak, he is often cowed by other men, and he is useless in practical matters. The right just desperately imagines he is all of these things because they're a mindless cult.
 
2020-10-28 4:48:19 PM  
I hate every goddamned idiot who voted for this shiatstain. HIs voters are either idiots, racists, simpletons, criminals, or a combination of these factors. Full stop. I have never met ANYIONE who supported this lout who had any redeeming qualities of their own.

I want my hair to look amazing and not smell like flowers.

Otherwise, spot on.

Yes, but you're a coward who can admit that you're a coward.

The Trumphumpers are cowards who believe that supporting Trump makes them brave.

That is until they encounter somebody who is ready and willing to fight back, at which point they become, just like their cult leader, a whimpering baby.

Trump is a coward. As are his followers. Hide behind your lifted pick up. Hang more flags from it. Spread the plague. They cower the moment you stand up to them. It is time to shove them back under the rock these pond scum mother farkers used to hide under.

"I really believe I'd run in there even if I didn't have a weapon," Trump told governors meeting at the White House to discuss school safety.

Seriously.  Would you let him hold the other end of the jumper cables apart?  Would you let him spot you on a weight bench?  Would you have him pick your girlfriend up at the airport?

The answer is no, no you wouldn't, because he's a shiathead, and you know damned well he is.

I recently watched the coverage from three networks of the day JFK was shot. The "man on the street" interviews were all displays of shock and incredulity.  All of the people then said that Lee Harvey Oswald was deranged.
Today, a good chunk of trump supporters would openly cheer at that.
Watching that old footage really shows a stark contrast of the times we're in now.

The problem isn't really gender. It is a lack of a personal identity, which causes one to default to very stupid ideas about what you are, which at its most basic, for some people, is their gender.

We're so much more.

While some fatties are healthier in old age than many skinnies, Trump ain't one of them.

It is absolutely amazeballs he convinced so many people his cowardly ass is a manly man.
