Perhaps you have long wondered how 21st century right-wing cretins might re-imagine popular cartoons of the 1970s.
Wonder no more! Well, actually, wonder a lot...
Kyle Smith at the NY Post has an interesting article on the emasculation of men in our society:
“Free to Be . . . You and Me” was a piece of Ms. Foundation-produced feminist propaganda disguised as entertainment for children that first appeared on ABC 40 years ago this week, on March 11, 1974. It drew big ratings, leading to platinum status for an associated album, a best-selling book, and many repeat airings of the show....
The climactic close to “It’s All Right to Cry” is a montage of real people (the vast majority male) shedding tears. Lads, open the waterworks! To women of today who are wondering why men must act like little boys, this is as good a moment as any to pinpoint as the start of the epidemic.
Well, sure. This "epidemic." Take it away, InstaMissus.
This continues today with the PC trend of sports, particularly football, and men being told that only the emotions of girls are acceptable unless they themselves actually act like one and then they are mocked by other men and women for their weakness. It’s confusing and disturbing that men are so emasculated on one hand and on the other, are supposed to “act like men” when convenient for women and society.
One is grateful for the good Dr. Helen's barely rudimentary acquantance with the English language, as it allows us to charitably consider her merely a shit-for-brains clod, as opposed to an actively malignant gender-baiting wingnut welfare slurper. Ain't we sweet.
I have vague recollections of the teevee thing referenced; and indeed I suppose I was in precisely this targeted demographic for the show. I was about five or six when apparently I was "emasculated" by badly produced Rosie Grier bits.
Fortunately this was all counterbalanced later on and at the time by, well, evey other pop cultural thing.
At any rate one hopes the Gor Travel Bureau has a halfway decent copyeditor on retainer.
