[BONUS LINK:] From The Sunday Times:

In search of lost manliness.

Harvard professor Harvey Mansfield tells John-Paul Flintoff he is sticking out his jaw at the storm his views on maleness have caused.

[...]

It is not only women who have attacked his views on manliness. “Male reviewers behave with gallantry, speaking up for women,” Mansfield said. “It’s a paradox: they’re demonstrating manliness by attacking it.”

But he doesn’t mind. In fact, he positively welcomes the buffeting. And the harder the blows of his critics, the more manly he feels: “Manliness loves being embattled,” says the Byronic professor and washer-upper, “and alone against the world.”

Hugh, I had NO idea you liked puppies and chocolate ice cream too! That's just... so... adorable. : )

But if you put that on a shirt, I will hunt you down and cut you to little pieces with a broken Stormhoek bottle.

Please stop showing you have a feminine mind.

"Manliness seeks and welcomes drama, prefers times of war, conflict, and risk, and brings change or restores order at crucial moments. Manly men in their assertiveness raise issues, bring them to the fore, and make them public and political"
