The Intern, Trailer #2

Surprised no one has complained about the paternalism of the story yet. What women really want? Instead of a husband, a father figure to lean on for emotional support and direction.



A jab at modern males, and Rene Russo relegated to being the possible love interest for Robert De Niro's character. Hollywood is so sexist!

William Lind, The View From Olympus: Will the Real Military Please Stand Up?

The second, and related, moral hollowing-out of the state we see demonstrated by not allowing our servicemen to carry weapons in the womanizing of the culture, concerning which I have written before. Women are genetically programmed, by evolution, to seek safety. Guns strike most of them as unsafe. The general or politicians who dared to say, ”Courage, people. Freedom requires taking risks. Yes, there may be some shoot-outs as our military personnel protect themselves and others from 4GW attacks, and yes, civilians may get hit in the crossfire. That is part of the price we must pay for liberty," would end his career. The general would be fired, and the courageous politicians would be defeated at the next election as the women’s vote went to his opponent, who would no doubt to promise to “keep women safe.”

To be a Citizen

On Cities and Community by Tim Dunkin

It May Strike a Chord

with indoctrinated modern American women who believe they are strong and assertive, but is it possible that the movie may have the opposite effect on those who are seeking femininity? Instead of feminist heroes, do the women in the movie seem unhinged and like they're poorly aping men?

Behold the Man: A Catholic Vision of Male Spirituality
by Deacon Harold Burke-Sivers

Lucid and inspiring, Behold the Man is a unique exploration of Catholic spirituality for men. Much of the literature written for Catholic men focuses on topical issues such as fatherhood and sexuality. While this book does not exclude these subjects, it is the first to present a comprehensive picture of Catholic male spirituality.

What is authentic male Catholic spirituality? What distinguishes it from Protestant male spirituality? How does masculine spirituality complement feminine spirituality? These questions and many more are answered in this book.

Drawing from Scripture and Church teaching, the author roots Catholic male spirituality in a covenant relationship with God and the cross of Jesus Christ. He demonstrates that when a man embraces the cross he is truly able to be himself—the man that God created and calls him to be. Behold the Man can deepen a man’s experience of Christ and help him to know the Lord more intimately.

Deacon Harold Burke-Sivers (FB)

I don't know him, so I don't know if his message goes beyond the usual Christian so-con solutions to the usual Christian so-con criticisms of American men.
