What You Always Wanted to Know About the Plague of TOXIC MASCULINITY

Are you like us, worried about the greatest threat to American society?  Maybe you think it’s the opioid epidemic.  Or nuclear proliferation, perhaps AIDS or even Global Warming.  If so, you’d be wrong.

No, according to the American Psychological Association (APA), Brown University, and the world’s greatest authority on what’s wrong with America, Elizabeth Warren, it’s Toxic Masculinity.

Dwayne Johnson
Dwayne Johnson – Stereotypical Toximasculist

Yep.  But, hey, maybe there’s a grain of truth.  After all, who isn’t horrified by rape, domestic violence, drunken barroom brawls and the like?  But those are a tiny fraction of all men, the criminal element populating our jails.  And it’s not at all what the APA, New York Times, and a host of other progressive (insert liberal) organizations are talking about.  No, the APA unashamedly calls the threat “traditional masculinity” (our emphasis) indicating the problem is that of everyday men being…well…men.

 

Here are a few of the APA’s indicators of toxic masculinity (a term originally attributed to uber’-liberal Elizabeth Warren):

  • Fails to show emotions easily
  • Maintains a tough exterior persona
  • Avoids appearance of weakness or femininity
  • Not a big talker
  • Interested in sex

If that sounds like just about most of the men you’ve ever known, you’re probably right.

Our cadre of physicians and scientists has found that the opposite of toxic masculinity, and therefore the correct way to be, is something they describe as femimasculinity or being a femimasculist.  Think about it: the alternative to the above indicators is being overtly emotional, having a soft exterior persona, displaying vulnerability, readily talking about everything, and having little interest in sex (post marriage, anyway).  And that describes just about all of the women we know.

Now, we’re not talking about sexual orientation here.  That’s something altogether different.  No, we’re talking about how ordinary men act.  With a nod to Jeff Foxworthy, here are a few tests you can take:

  • If you like Sunday afternoon football, cold beer, or playing a competitive sport, you might just have Toxic Masculinity
  • or…if you live in an apartment in Boston, San Francisco or New York, have never been hunting, wear a suit to work, have a therapist, and think about how you can be more sensitive to women’s feelings, you definitely are a Femimasculist

Mr. Rogers – Beatified Femimasculist

Of course, all of us want to be part of the solution, not the problem.  But overcoming toxic masculinity requires a more in depth understanding of the symptoms before we can identify those needing a cure.  Here is a handy list of scenarios prepared by our Research Department that contrast nasty toximasculists with oh-so-desirable femimasculists.

Toxi vs Femi JPEG

Fellows, if you fall into one or more of the above Toxic Masculinity categories, not to worry.  Courses and programs to fix yourselves are cropping up at progressive institutions, and just in time.  Breitbart.com reports that, among others, Brown University is offering a program Unlearning Toxic Masculinity 101.  Brown’s literature says

Brown’s goal is to create a “safe space” for male students to “unpack all of the things they have learned about masculinity and what it means to be a man…”

Thank God!  Help is on the way.

So guys, if someone says you have toxic (e.g. traditional) masculinity and are therefore a threat to society, go ahead and enroll in a course to become a femimasculist.  Or…you can just tell them to kiss your toxic (insert your own noun here).

A Modest Proposal: Millennials, Snowflakes and the Future of America

scold.jpg

We get it.  Every “older generation” (e.g. us) is critical of young people.  Remember the song from the 60s musical, Bye-bye Birdie.

 

What’s the matter with kids today

why can’t they be like we were

perfect in every way

oh, WHAT’S the matter with kids to – dayyyyyyy

But despite the misgivings of seniors, people pretty much turn out all right (if you forget the Hippies).  At least they have in the past.

However, enter the Millennials, colloquially defined as those reaching young adulthood in this, the early twenty-first century.  Inexplicably, they are a generation raised apart from the normal experience of human history, as if in some bizarre, misguided science experiment.

Remember how we signed up for after-school programs?  Little league, Brownies or Cub Scouts?  In contrast, the Millennials are craftily enrolled by calculating parents in carefully selected activities designed to give their children just the right experience to make them superior to all others.  While we grabbed a glove and went down to the sandlot to play some ball with our buds, now, hovering soccer moms and “involved” soccer momfathers sign the kids up, drive them, participate in every aspect, argue with coaches and umpires, take everyone out for pizza afterwards, and console the losers.  And everyone is told again and again, “good job!” (barf)  Helicopter mothers endlessly circle over their children’s lives.  No wonder these children cannot function in modern society.

“So what?” you might say.  “I haven’t any skin in the game.  No harm, no foul, just let them be doofuses.”  If so, you’d be missing a key point.

They will be our future leaders!  No way around it.  The normal people are going to die (we hope this doesn’t shock you) and they will be the only folks left.  If you think the generations coming up behind will be more functional, think again.  The Millennials, unlike their parents, seem bent on raising their kids exactly like they were!  It’s part of the disease.

Think about it.  Here are some characteristics of Millennials that would define their performance as our leaders:

texting
Millennials Preparing for Leadership
  • Can’t write or read cursive
  • Types with their thumbs
  • Writes in primitive abbreviations (e.g. you are = ur)
  • Corollary: Can’t spell without SpellCheck, and even then screws it up
  • Believes debt should be forgiven by the government if it was for a good cause or didn’t work out
  • Just fine interrupting a conversation to answer the phone or respond to a text
  • Posts every action and thought on the Internet
  • Corollary: posts photos of an accident rather than helping
  • Thinks the government has infinite money
  • Sees no problem with socialism, and can’t understand why all countries don’t do it
  • Can find no logical connection between market capitalism and our standard of living or success as a nation
  • Believes a job is a right that exists for their personal enjoyment
  • Keeps a small electronic device constantly attached to their hands and frozen in front of their face
  • Are convinced we are dumb

Reeducation Camp

For the majority who say we should euthanize these young people and start over, we at HardWired News believe that possibly is too harsh (although we’re keeping an open mind).  We should compassionately take a note from Stalin’s playbook, and send them to “reeducation” camps, where they can be straightened out, even if it takes the rest of their lives (heh-heh-heh).  There they would be responsible for their own decisions.  Consequences for actions and inaction would fall upon them without interference.  They would be allowed to formulate their own goals, achieve them or not, and live with the results.  The inmates could reach their own decisions absent liberal dogma or political correctness.

Or are we just dreaming?

New Technology Leads to Identification of THE DEVIL

Flip Wilson 2
“The Devil Made Me Do It”

The Devil is well documented in human history.  He (some believe SHE) is mentioned numerous times in The Bible.  The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines him (or is it her?) as “the personal supreme spirit of evil”.  And you remember the television icon of the 60s and 70s, Flip Wilson, who personally testified to The Devil’s interference in his life.  He, of course, would never lie.  There is other irrefutable evidence as well.  Yes, the Devil is REAL and we know who he is.

 

HardWired News has now accessed amazing new technology that allows us to physically identify the actual Devil.  Our scientists have recently perfected a Spiritually Induced Quantum Field Fluctuation Detector (SIQFFD or “sig-fuh-fid” for short).  This innovation scans quantum field disturbances around a person caused by their spiritual self, otherwise invisible to the eye.  Our researches have scanned millions of conventional images with the new technology, and have positively identified the individual who, despite all appearances to the contrary, is actually the Devil.

Kavanaugh - Devil

 

As any observer can see, the Devil is actually Judge Brett Kavanaugh!  If the actual sig-fuh-fid scan is not enough, consider the following shocking facts about dirty-rotten Kavanaugh:

  • Drank beer in high school and college
  • Threw ice at a guy in a bar once
  • Took sides in a quarrel between roommates.
  • Can’t prove he didn’t assault someone at a teen beer party

Now, in the interest of full disclosure, the last one was denied by the Devil, can’t be corroborated by anyone including the people the complaining woman said were there; was flat-out denied under oath by a third party that the complaining woman said was a witness; was made by a democrat ideologue at the very end of a nomination process where Kavanaugh (did we mention he’s Republican?) was about to be recommended for the Supreme Court; wasn’t discovered in seven FBI background checks; and wasn’t brought up years before when he was overwhelmingly confirmed to the most important Federal appellate court in the country.  But, hey, if any one of those charges is true (especially drinking beer – who does that?!), it should be enough to disqualify him from public office and prove he is the Devil.  And we have plenty of other evidence of his evil: we just don’t want to talk about it right now.

Yes, the evidence is clear; Brett Kavanaugh is the Devil.  Now go out and protest or something.

What You Always Wanted to Know About Liberal Headlines – but were afraid to ask

ConfusedAre you like me, confused when national news events become convoluted headlines in the liberal press that bear little relationship to what actually happened?  Well, help is on the way.  HardWired News has performed an exhaustive scientific study of normal and liberal headlines, especially when they involve President Trump.  We’ve constructed this handy translator to help ordinary people navigate from one to the other (thanks to confidant CW for the idea):

HardWired News Takes a Look at the Future

You remember we took a hiatus last October to come up for air.  The lunacy of the liberal left made us more than a little apoplectic, so like a whipped puppy we retreated under the bed for a while.  And while we won’t resume regular weekly articles, look for the occasional piece that strikes our fancy now and again.

Crystal Ball HWNThe reason for our return now was an amazing advance in technology that could not be ignored.  Through the efforts of renowned scientists laboring as an interactive team around the globe and using the latest advances in quantum computing, artificial intelligence, and nano-engineering, it is now possible to divine how things will be in the future.  Fortunately, HardWired News has gained exclusive rights to the technology and has been able to access the front page of The New York Times, the September 17, 2518 edition.  Here are a few headlines 500 years from now:

Will Weird California Join the Secession Bandwagon?

California secession image

California is at it again.

You may have heard Catalonia, a region in northeast Spain where the tony resort city of Barcelona is located, wants to secede and become independent.  The French-speaking province of Quebec tried the same thing with Canada a few years earlier.  And the quirky Scots narrowly failed to vote independence from England and the British Empire.  The separatist sentiments continue to smolder in all those regions.

Experts say the quest for separation is due to differences from the rest of the country in a region’s culture, language, religion, ancestral origins, or relative prosperity.  Quebec, for instance, speaks French and has a more robust industrial base than other areas—all English speaking—of Canada.  The Catalonians also have a unique local language and are by and large wealthier than elsewhere in Spain.  And the Scots?  Well, they’re just Scots; there’s really no one else like them.

So how is California so different that it wants to be separate from the rest of America?  HardWired News has done an exhaustive scientific study and learned exactly why.

California differences JPEG copy

So there really are fundamental differences between California and authentic America.California Secession  To be clear, we are talking about the uber-left western regions such as LA, Santa Barbara, San Francisco, Berkeley (of course), San Jose (school’s still out on San Diego).  The northern-and-easternmost areas are quite normal and would likely remain American.

So should we let the over-the-moon, whacko liberal areas secede and become their own California nuclear explosioncountry?  It’s an interesting proposition.  Eventually, America could establish diplomatic relations and allow well-regulated tourism and trade between the countries.  Although we could never, ever—under any circumstances—allow them to acquire nuclear weapons!  It would be the same as giving your toddler scissors to run around with.

Top Ten Ways to Know Hillary Clinton is Running for President in 2020

What Happened 2Hillary Clinton has been busy making public appearances ostensibly promoting her new book, What Happened, a list of pathetic excuses for her 2016 election loss to Donald Trump.  HardWired News opined that it was simply a money-play (How to Tell Hillary Clinton Loves Money…).  But some pundits claim her appearances sound more like political positioning for another run at the White House.

Recall that first she tested the waters unsuccessfully against the ultimate Democrat gore.jpgnominee Al “I invented the Internet” Gore in 2000, and again struck out as her party’s nominee in 2004 when John “Mr. Excitement” Kerry ran against Bush II.  Then in 2008 the self-proclaimed heir-apparent-to-greatness lost in a trouncing to unaccomplished newcomer Barack Obama.  Most famously, she took a woodshed beating from our current Commander-in-Chief, quirky Donald Trump in her 2016 failed attempt.

But now she is sounding candidate-like again, with posturing on national policy questions and assuming the role of denouncer of our sitting president.  So how can we really know if she is preparing for yet another run?

HardWired News has discovered the Top Ten Ways to know if Hilarity is planning another presidential run in 2020.  They are…

10  Publicly came out in support of “taking a knee” by NFL players during our National Anthem, another doofus move unpopular with mainstream voters just like her previous campaign positions

 9 Wrote a humiliating book, What Happened, trying to convince herself that she now knows how to fix what went wrong

 8 Sees that the ineffective Republicans, in control of Congress and the White House, are so hapless in trying to get anything done they couldn’t elect a dogcatcher in 2020

 7  Taking “Tweeting” lessons to out-Tweet the Tweeter-in-Chief

 6 Recently added twenty new pantsuits to her wardrobe

 5 Signed up for charm school

 4 Bought a fifty-five gallon drum of industrial strength No-Doze pills so she can stay awake long enough to campaign in the swing states she ignored and lost the last time

 weiner3 Mastering social media technology by commissioning Anthony Weiner, former husband of her closest advisor Huma Abedin, to teach her the fine art of Snap Chatting photos

 2 Had longtime pal Harvey Weinstein recruit ten thousand Hollywood extras to pack her events and make it look like she is popular in return for undisclosed favors

And the Number One Way to Know Hillary Clinton is Running Again

clinto-bill-tight-lipped.jpg

 1 Had husband Bill Clinton’s mouth and one other undisclosed aperture surgically sewn up so they can’t humiliate her again

Can’t wait to see Hillary where she rightfully belongs (insert your preferred destination here…)

Science Mimics Life: Liberals and the Sex-Robots

HardWired News bends over backward (not like you think) to avoid prurient themes.  But we couldn’t resist this one.

Fox News reported that our scientists—backed by generous government grants, no doubt—are working double-time to perfect sex robots.  You heard me: droids (as in “androids,” not the phone) are being developed to look and act like fully functioning sexsex-robot.jpg partners for the truly lonely.  Apparently, they will not only have comely appearances and operational “parts,” but will possess artificial intelligence, computer generated speech and the right actions to mimic passionate moves and emotions of real lovers.  No sense wasting those research dollars on things like vaccines for infectious diseases or cancer cures.  Is this a great country, or what?

sex-robot-mia.jpeg
Carnally Adept Synthetic

Actually, there was an eerily similar theme in the recent AMC cable sci-fi series,  HUM∀NS.  In it, synthetic people fulfilled the every wish (including sexual) of their owners.  As you might expect, it didn’t end well if you don’t like murderous, rebelling robots unleashed on humanity.  But the latest effort reported by Fox is anything but fiction.  Apparently, it is quite real.

Now if you’re like me, you might think no one in their right mind would go for this.  But then you think of the liberals, with their plastic programs that really achieve nothing but make them feel good with artificially induced satisfaction.  Things like passing gun laws that don’t really reduce crime (Chicago), outlawing “hate” crimes (like crimes aren’t really bad unless we label them hateful), banning “offensive” words or phrases (such as “freshman”, “American dream”, “illegal alien”, “radical Islamic terrorist” in California schools), or of course destroying statues of historic characters who had a nasty point of view.  One wonders if they lean back and smoke a cigarette after implementing these things.

Once we understand the sex robots are a metaphor for the liberals, well…it’s all good ISex Robot cartoon guess.  At least it might keep the libs harmlessly occupied and thereby reduce the damage they do to our country.  Maybe they’ll be included as a mandatory benefit under a new ObamaCare on steroids, or should I say Viagra.

After all, what could go wrong?
