You might want to rethink that.
Proving once again that the barrel has no bottom, Five Feet of I’m a Parody of Myself™ references that bastion of scientific integrity and reasoned, intelligent discourse Lifesite in order to take a gratuitous swipe at what she calls wimpy, "gay-acting" straight beta males. No, really.
And furthermore ... This whole fascination on the part of so-called "conservative" women with their perfect ideal of manly-men men is just a touch too precious. Consider, if you will, that the majority of these masculine hunks of Alpha Maleness like, oh say, Mark Steyn, Bill O’Reilly, Rush Limbaugh, etc., etc., have never served day one in the military. Which as everyone who is anyone knows is the absolute high water mark when it comes to masculine bona fides; unless, of course, you’re John Kerry. Or Max Cleland. Hell, even Dubya served. Granted it was in champagne Guard Unit his daddy got him into and he never saw a day of action outside the continental US ... but I digress.
These same kick-ass-first-and-take-names-later dreamboats are always the first to scream for attacks and invasions ... to be led and fought by other people, don't you know. And they can always be counted on to promptly accuse those who speak out against the notion of attacks and invasions of being cowards and traitors. But that doesn't stop you and the rest of your clueless, shrieky sisterhood from thinking "this, this is the perfect man" when it comes to these pathetic blowhards.
I have to be completely honest with you, Five Feet — an utterly foreign concept, I'm sure — I’m beyond convinced that Mark, Billo, Rush, etc., etc., ad nauseum, would probably run screaming like a 6-year-old girl from any sort of physical confrontation.
