Zimmerman, Trayvon, and Manliness
Yes, it’s not manly to walk up to someone and punch them in the nose. That makes you a punk. Especially when you have a history of fighting and drug use. Might even give the impression that you have a big attitude problem.

Get this. This is actually a very provocative piece on the Zimmerman case. It is found today in the American Spectator, one of my all-time favorite journals of opinion. It’s written by a man named Daniel J. Flynn. It’s about the Zimmerman case. And the headline of this piece is really good, and it’s provocative itself. It gives you an indication what the story is about. “Two Males, No Men.”
“Two Males, No Men.” And the premise of Mr. Flynn’s piece is that the real reason Trayvon Martin was shot is that we don’t have any real men anymore in America. Now a series of pull quotes from the story to give you flavor for the piece. Mr. Flynn says: “The proper response to an assault by a 158-pound teenager isn’t to scream for help or grab for a gun. It is to punch back or better yet subdue and issue a spanking.”
Another pull quote: “Their households lacked strong male role models; their society, even more so. Four in ten American kids enter the world without their father married to their mother. When schoolboys begin to exhibit traits natural to their sex, the energetic fellows earn the wrath of detention and Ritalin.” Frankly, folks, this is becoming a more acceptable reaction to all of this ADD and ADHD stuff. And this pull quote is right on the money. “Four in ten American kids enter the world without their father married to their mother. When schoolboys begin to exhibit traits natural to their sex,” which the feminists have been trying to wipe out since the late sixties and early seventies. Natural male traits were portrayed as predator, brutish, inhuman, insensitive, unfeeling, brutal, violent.
