        Wayne raises significant issues about the all out attack within our
culture on the American male.  Ten years ago, Robert Bly, the anti-VietNam
War-feminist-poet-turned-male-advocate, suddenly noticed the problem.  After
years of supporting the feminist movement, he realized that segments that RUSH
aptly calls feminazis had seized the agenda.  He has been busy trying to clean
up some of the mess he helped to create.  (More attention to Newt would
probably help him.)  The task is great, because so much cultural damage has
been done and is ongoing, seemingly with a life of its own.
 
        On the policical front, Senators Moynihan and Gramm agreed a few
Sundays  ago that fatherless homes (now approaching 50%) are a serious threat
to the survival of our culture.  A contributing cause to this problem surely
has been the scapegoating   of men physically (testosterone poisoning),
emotionally (like fish, they don't really "feel" do they?), mentally (their
mental constructs are phalocentric and patriarchal), and spiritually (God has a
gender and her name is Gaia).  The pernicious onslaught has been relentless.
 
        How can we remedy this post Thelma and Louise-kick-the-groin-attack on
American men and men in general?  Wayne's post locates several of the specific
issues to be addressed.
