The War on 'The War'

Not 'The War' you are probably thinking of.

Dr. Helen seems to be leading a one woman charge against the 'War on Men'.

Prof. Althouse also has been calling attention to the problem.

(I guess male bloggers are afraid of coming across as whiners)

Recent posts (this one, and this one) decry the marginalization of masculinity.

It's a serious problem in society today, yet oddly one I've never been effected by personally.

Probably cause I'm very good at both masculine and feminine modes of address and communication, so I can operate in either sphere with comfort.

(and as an aside, Instapundit seems amenable (unfortunately only as a legal possibility, not a personal one) to the possibility of legalizing plural marriages, soooooo, maybe one day I can propose to Dr. Helen too)

(needless to say just kidding)

UPDATE: After that second to last parenthetical musing, I'm amazed that Dr. Helen chose to link to this post regarding her original post, and yet she did. That's class. (or she didn't read the whole thing, or she took it as the small bit of humor as it was intended).

Anyone visiting for the first time, have a look around, I don't bite, and I even welcome comments (though you wouldn't be able to tell from most of the posts)

Mmmm, nope. It's something that falls out of your locus of control; something that can affect you regardless of your own ability.

It's something that doesn't directly affect me, yet I also understand that I have good fortune to thank for that to some degree.

At the end of the day, any man complaining about this will be marginalized as representatives of the patriarchy. Too many men's rights activists are so extreme that they end up outside of the mainstream and are easily ignored or maligned. Until a moderate system in support of individual men emerges, moderate and intelligent women will make a much bigger difference. Unless they are on the extreme edge of the conservative movement, they are much harder to simply ignore or marginalize.
