Damn Right - sy4
Damn Right
You know, he was sort of a badass though, wasn't he?
Shades of Eastwood. Charlie Bronson.
Duke Fucking Wayne!
Duke Fucking WAYNE!
Men build things, then we die. It's in our fucking DNA! THAT'S WHAT WE DO!
And when it all falls down?
We build it right back up again.
But this time bigger. BETTER!
Look! Look what we can do. Look how fuckin' beautiful we are. You think the men that built all this had it easy?
Hard men!
Doing hard shit!
I am so sick of all of this self help, twelve step, leftover hippie generation bullshit!
Now they don't want you to do anything, right? Just sit there. Don't drink.
Don't smoke. Don't drive fast.
Kiss my ass!
Fuck it! Do it all I say!
Do you think Duke Wayne spent all of his time talking about his feelings with a fuckin' therapist?
There's no fucking way he did!
John Wayne died with five pounds of undigested red meat in his ass. Now that's a man!
Real men hide their feelings. Why?
Because it's none of your fuckin' business!
Men do not cry. Men do not pout. Men jack you in the fuckin' jaw and say...
Thanks for comin' out.

I think there's a line--just like there's a line with most things. There's a reactionary swing, and taking it too far. You can be too touchy feely, and you can be too stoic. But abusive alcoholics who don't have emotional intimacy even with their loved ones and solve all their problems with violence aren't exactly top specimens of manhood either.

Goes without saying.

Does it? It certainly doesn't in this rant which is posted without comment except for a title that says "Damned Right." But I'm glad to hear you say so anyway.

People who take it too far, one way or the other, are weak.

I think people who read too much into the rant are not secure in their masculinity.

Which is the whole point of the rant.

Right because no one in our culture REALLY thinks like this.
