Bill Bennett, former Secretary of Education and current self-appointed Determiner of What is Good and Proper in American Society, has turned his eye on men in America. Put simply, he's demanding that American men "man up". Put down the Xbox, pass up the Fantasy Football draft and, well, be men. To be honest, I'm sort of drawn to Bennett's arguments, as I do sorta look with circumspection upon dudes who don't seem to want to grow up.
Into the fray jumps a blog entry that takes apart some of Bennett's arguments...and more truth be told....some of the counters are pretty sensible too. There's some flat-out misogyny in the post, but also some wisdom.
