Busy day here, while everyone is blogging about Pres. Obama’s budget speech.
However, an equally interesting subject is this Manifesto For Conscious Men, which starts with an apology for being men. You can watch the YouTube in its full unmanly self-conscious groveling glory here.
Conceived, redacted and read by a guy name Gay. Really.
The whole thing is not only wrong from the get-go (starting with that photo of Dante Gabriel Rosetti’s Beata Beatrix – yes, I know my Pre-Raphaelites – on the Facebook page), it totally misses the point. As Bill Whittle says in the Trifecta,
The antidote to brutal men is not weak, femminine men. The antidote to brutal men is strong, good men.
Now, whether the Manifesto is actually “the most elaborate pick-up line ever”, I’ll leave for Citizen Renegade to decide.
More blogging later.
