"traditional masculinity" : sexism, sadism, stupidity, and bigotry all rolled up into one ugly ball.

Assholes like that tend to live in the past, because they know they have no future.

He talks like he only observes what's masculine. Which is fitting since he's got that never grows up disease it seems.

I'm trying to think of a military situation which would have been improved by an injection of testosterone.

He certainly suffers from permanent immaturity.

"...rugged, strapping males.", he went on to say.  "The kind with broad shouldeds, tapering down to slim waistlines lined with rippling abs, And those oh, so well-defined chiseled obliques from all those sit-ups and squat thrusts.  Excuse me, I must go".

The irest of the inferview was cut short.

/The preceding in no aay endorses the idea that there would be anything wrong or bad about the idea of Ben being homosexual or having thought said thojghts about men in the military.

traditional masculinity - this has been the truth about military war for literally all of history

Yeah, bring back rape, pillage, and atrocities to our war fighters. Its a historical imperative,

Or at least can't we just excuse some boys who get a little too excited?

Benny Shaps' idea of a manly man is combat general Brett Hawthorne, a bear of a man, six three in his bare feet and two hundred fifteen pounds in his underwear.

/And has no problem getting his wife Ellen wet.

People that get smacked in the balls often suffer from temporary disenchantment with masculinity - I know I do

/admittedly it's less abolish the patriarchy and more, "WhyyyyYYYYYyyyy?"
//cool with abolishment, but I have trouble being less than self-centered at such times
///as contrasted with the 100% of the time I fail to ever be enchanted by sociopathic bullshiat ala Shapiro

Counterpoint: The Ukranian military. AFAIK they have women in combat roles and they're absolutely kicking ass against an army that wholeheartedly embraces "Traditional Masculinity" in all its toxic glory.

Somehow, I don't think it matters to him whether or not they can actually win any battles.  It's not relevant to his goals.

Well he can die in the frontlines being rushed, untrained, straight into enemy MG fire to proclaim his masculinity. Nothing of value would be lost.

For such a homophobic bunch, their discussions of the military take on a "Letters to Gay Penthouse" vibe quick, fast, and in a hurry.

A good old buddy of mine who was just a sweet apolitical goofball of a sweetheart when I knew him reconnected with me slightly before the pandemic.

He started spouting sh*t like this and how he didn't LIKE rump but approved of his ideas and so should I and blippety blappety boo.

For six months this went on and I honestly thought he was pulling an Andy Kaufman on me.

Nope. It would escalate to screaming and any time I asked where the hell he was getting his news/ideas from he would never say... until I pinned him down.

Joe Rogan and Ben Shapiro.

We are both Canadians so that makes it extra stupid.

Stopped talking to him after he was yelling at me about how women have always been equal to men throughout history and they actually had it pretty good.

Just... I did not want to stick around for when he inevitably would get into holocaust denial.

Sucks too because he was one of my favorite malorkuses ever.

F*cking al right sh*tbirds poisoning simple yet beautiful minds.

So I guess Shapiro gives The Woman King three thumbs down?

Nearly every transgender person I know  over the age of 30 has at least gone to basic training in an attempt to prove to themselves how masculine they are and it's totally just a phase, only to transition after coming out.
 
2022-09-26 5:39:03 AM  
"People who tend to fight wars are very male"

I mean, it's nice that he accepts gender is a spectrum.

That whinging, effete, limp Richard has no military experience.
He has as much business bloviating on what identity, psychological factors, or behaviors make service members ready to wage war as Bernie Sandere does.

/his public display of mental masturbation misses the single most important behavior for a service member; self discipline. And I know a lot of moms with more self discipline and military experience than that wanker.

Yes, because when I think of traditional masculinity I think of a tiny little Keebler elf man whom I'm pretty sure cannot grow facial hair and brags about being unable to sexually satisfy his wife, lol.

At this point, Ben Shapiro's entire existence is just dropping weapons grade bad takes for us to laugh at. In fact, I think I'mma dunk on him some more: I find it funny how conservatives have forgotten to upgrade their young conservatives over the last ten years, so the people they expect to speak for college-aged republicans are all just middle-aged men who've never gotten over that they weren't invited to parties, lol

WTF is masculinity anyway?

Like serious question.  Every impression I've been given since a kid is that it involves an unhealthy attachment to regional sports, drinking excessive amounts of alcohol, a preoccupation with violence, having little respect for women beyond their appearance, obsessive competitiveness, and a litany of mental health issues ranging from antisocial personality disorder to PTSD.

If it means I would have had to dump having tea parties with my daughter, her stuffed-toy Alaina the penguin, and Alaina's daughter Penguinto, because tea parties aren't as manly as sports ball. fark it, pass me the Earl Grey, hot.

A few months ago Ben met up with some ultra-MAGA white supremacists who didn't like his Jew thing.  "Not like that" phrase comes to mind.
His pseudo-intellectualism is a throwback to William F. Buckley in the mid-20th century and has no place in the modern GQP.
Go ahead Ben, you were about to blame the US military for losing Afghanistan because they are effeminate cowards.  Please proceed to tell that directly to a group of veterans.

Volodymir Zelensky is a good example of healthy masculinity.

That's what we call toxic masculinity.

I mean, the whole masculinity/femininity thing is made up garbage anyway... But if we wanna get into it, there's such a thing as healthy masculinity. You can be masculine and still be open about your feelings, hard working, honest, etc, etc. A good example of healthy masculinity would be Fred Rogers, but... We already know how conservatives feel about that, lol

It really says a lot that we're over here like "hey, maybe men should be allowed to express themselves in ways other than aggression?" and right-wing talking heads like Jordon Peterson cone out of the wood work to be like "let me tell you about lobsters you pussy!" before breaking out into a crying fit.

Hasn't multiple Navy SEALs transitioned? Including one Medal of Honor Winning? Those ladies are not only more manly then the rest of us combined, but also look good in heels. 

/Oh well. They can't get drunk with squirrels nearly as well as us.

Best I can figure, conservatives think he's some sort of "intellectual".  I guess because he's little, sounds nerdy, and talks really fast?
