Emasculating Men vs. Being a Man

Courtesy of the Daily Mail and Time magazine (via National Review Online) we learn that it is acceptable to emasculate men.

The Daily Mail gushes about the Chinese man who mutilated himself into a parody of a woman, and how he has become a cultural icon after his mutilation.

And National Review Online comments on the same Time magazine edition I saw the other day—the one with the cover boasting that, “Women are overtaking men as America’s breadwinners. Why that’s good for everyone”.

Meanwhile, the Daily Mail churns out a story about the “outrage” over a guy who would dare to say that he’s sick of all the female comedies that have flooded the market.

So the rules of society now say: Emasculating men is a good thing; being a man is bad.
