New York Times Writer Attempts to Explain What It Is To Be a "Modern Man," to Everyone's Great Embarrassment

It is often unmanly to even discuss "being a man" at all, but it can be done.

But describing "being a man" as nothing more than a series of trivial consumer choices reduces "being a man" to being a woman, but with these fashion preferences swapped out for women's.

The other things that make someone a "modern man" are, apparently, simply behaving like a liberal, urban white woman (the actual target demographic of this piece), as in:

25. The modern man has no use for a gun. He doesn’t own one, and he never will.

26. The modern man cries. He cries often.

27. People aren’t sure if the modern man is a good dancer or not. That is, until the D.J. plays his jam and he goes out there and puts on a clinic.

Yes, crying and dancing and thinking guns are icky. That's pretty much an exact description of Rooster Cogburn and Chuck Yaegher.

This New York Times piece is pure hatebait -- hatebait, because it's written to be mocked, but linked each time it's mocked.

The Modern Man, it goes on to tell us, is obsequious to feminist demands:

1. When the modern man buys shoes for his spouse, he doesn't have to ask her sister for the size. And he knows which brands run big or small.

...

9. Having a daughter makes the modern man more of a complete person. He learns new stuff every day.


10. The modern man makes sure the dishes on the rack have dried completely before putting them away.

Watching this soft-handed sweetboy explain being a man to people is adorable. Sometimes he tries to butch up by talking super tough about trivial matters of eating and social media usage:

4. The modern man doesn't cut the fatty or charred bits off his fillet. Every bite of steak is a privilege, and it all goes down the hatch.


11. The modern man has never "pinned" a tweet, and he never will.

Wow! That's some manful defiance right there! It's like his closest experience with a real man is watching Ron Swanson on Parks and Recreation. Say, doesn't Ron Swanson sometimes talk about meat...? Oh yes, I'll say something manful about meat-eating.

By the way, Twinkie, there's not much fat at all on a fillet. That's the main thing about them, and why they're preferred by children and finicky eaters.

He has another burst of manful defiance in him -- this time, about his precious cellphone:

24. The modern man doesn't get hung up on his phone's battery percentage. If it needs to run flat, so be it.

Also, the modern man is apparently a prig and thinks military-derived slang is "gauche:"


8. The modern man uses the proper names for things. For example, he’ll say "helicopter," not "chopper" like some gauche simpleton.

The modern man is apparently super-into organization and planning his soap usage ahead of time:

12. The modern man checks the status of his Irish Spring bar before jumping in for a wash. Too small, it gets swapped out.

Wow, this Modern Man sure is breaking all the rules.

The Modern Man, as I said before, is very interested in shopping and advertising his fashion preferences:

14. The modern man still jots down his grocery list on a piece of scratch paper. The market is no place for his face to be buried in the phone.

15. The modern man has hardwood flooring. His children can detect his mood from the stamp of his Kenneth Cole oxfords.

...

18. The modern man has thought seriously about buying a shoehorn.

Why this Modern Man is very fixated on shoes, isn't it? Rather like another sex I could probably name if I gave it enough thought.

The modern man may hate guns and love crying like a little girl, but he'll... do something or other if there's an intruder in the house.


16. The modern man lies on the side of the bed closer to the door. If an intruder gets in, he will try to fight him off, so that his wife has a chance to get away.

Note he says try to fight him off. The Modern Man is admirably realistic about his capacity for physical confrontation.

Then the Modern Man does more Homemaking Projects he saw on GOOP or Martha Stewart:

17. Does the modern man have a melon baller? What do you think? How else would the cantaloupe, watermelon and honeydew he serves be so uniformly shaped?

Basically, the Modern Man is a tweener girl:

20. On occasion, the modern man is the little spoon. Some nights, when he is feeling down or vulnerable, he needs an emotional and physical shield.

Oh I can't quote it all, but he's got some stuff in there about collecting the phony artifacts of imaginary manhood, like making sure he has "All Michael Mann movies" on DVD, or whatever the most up-to-date recording format is.

Because, again, the Modern Man is a Fashion Consumer first and foremost, and adorns himself (or his little den) with various trinkets and baubles intended to prettify himself -- but in a Modern Man sort of way, you understand.

72 A real man is never politically correct, pretending to be something he's not, or doing and saying things to score political points with his friends or some girl he wants to get to like him. His yes means yes, his no means no. He'll humble himself when he has to, but he'll also fight when he needs to. He doesn't manipulate people and doesn't put up with people who do. He loves ferociously, hopes expectantly, and dreams big dreams for himself and his family.

This man has no clue.

I don't even know which shoe brands run big or small.

And the whole crying thing? Did someone die, or was there a really touching story or situation? (e.g., one I watched where a family was finally able to adopt a kid after it seemed impossible. I didn't tear up to lack of functioning tear ducts, and also lack of a heart, but guys that were present did, and I found it acceptable.)

If the answer is yes, fine, go ahead and cry (for death) or tear up (touching incident, no, not that kind of touching you perverts).

Otherwise, um, no.

280 Contrast NYT Pajama Boy's "Modern Man" with Rudyard Kipling's "If"

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowances for their doubting too.
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies.
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk to wise:

If you can dream -- and not make dreams your master;
If you can think -- and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster;
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on!"

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings -- nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And -- which is more -- you'll be a Man, my son!

Does the NYT just run random pieces written by guys named Brian from DeKalb? I mean, if he's a writer, I would expect to see his name somewhere, on something.

336 They tried this same sensitive-man crap in the 70s. (For some reason, Alan Alda was mentioned a lot.)

Then, in the 90s, they did it all over again. Watch the movie Regarding Henry. It's about turning an 80s man into a 90s man, by shooting him in the head.

So, here we are, another 20 years hence, and the New York media is recycling the same shit.

Real men teach their daughters. Then their daughters find a real man. Then they have children and the new mom teaches her boys to be real men.

547 The Modern Man does not wear socks with his oxfords and appears with his husband in decorator magazines in his seersucker summer togs and a pair of innocent doggies (note to Morons: I have been known to cancel these magazines upon reading of Modern Man).

In these magazines, also, Modern Man's decor features either paintings or sculptures of nude men or young boys (I know, this describes Reid's suite at the Ritz or Bwany Fwank's brothel). I always worry about what horrors the two innocent dogs have witnessed as the "husbands" always have an 18th century dining table that seats 12.

560 I saw Green Inferno earlier this week. There's a part where the activists are going down a river and one of them has to make a pit stop.

Their local river boat guide tries to give him a machete for snakes but he's reluctant to take it so a girl who has to grabs it and takes off. The guy asks the river boat guide if he has any more machetes and the guide hands him a gun.

He reacts and carries the gun about like a modern man would I guess.

http://www.usatoday.com/story/newsnation/2015/10/01/officials-active-shooter-oregon-college/ 73153610/

"Kortney Moore, 18, told News Review-Today that she in her Writing 115 class in Snyder Hall when one shot came through a window. She said she saw her teacher get shot in the head.

The shooter was inside at that point, and he told people to get on the ground, Moore told the newspaper. The shooter was asking people to stand up and state their religion and then started firing, Moore said.."

??????

One imagines that there are VERY few (if any) Muslim students at a school like this.

Thus, it seems very unlikely that he was seeking to identify and then shoot Muslim students, since he'd know there weren't ay -- instead, he was asking their religion to see who either identified as

a. Christian; or
b. Jewish,

before shooting them.

Anti-religious atheist nutcase?

The fact that he posted on 4chan makes it even more likely that he is an atheist.

Real men do not wear skinny jeans. Period. They can't because they have balls. They need those balls to fuck or fight, whichever is needed at the moment. And they are not afraid to do either one of those things
Real men do not wear douchy little metrosexual hipster glasses/scarves/goatees/ anything and suggest that they do this "ironically". There is nothing ironic about being a fucking idiot. And real men prefer sarcasm to irony.
Real men can sweat, swear, dance, argue, cook, take care of their families, and work at a full time job without whining or looking like a dumbass.
Real men will let the 7yr old daughter put ribbons in his hair as long as she doesn't get in front of the tv and cause him to miss the biggest play of the game. He will take the ribbons out before venturing out of the house.
Real men play for keeps.
Real men do not go to college and study womyns studies so they know what women want and need. They know instinctively that real women want a real man who will fight for her and fuck her senseless.

Re: evacuations in hurricanes. I confess, in previous life prior to looking like Duchess of Alba after move, I lived 1/4 mile from the Atlantic. When they made it "mandatory" and closed causeways I was outta there. If I am going to die it will not be due to a tidal wave nor cutting artery from can of beans and expiring in a pool of blood because causeways closed. Or being bit by a snake (hell, would die anyway if that happened from cardiac arrest). All I have to worry about now are earthquakes and gas explosions from various gas things I have to use.

I do hope the news is wrong about this Joaquin or however you say or spell it. I like a good old American-named hurricane like Spike or Beretta. Joaquin sounds like a pin cushion (not sure why, but prickly pear). Whatever. Guess I had better go ask what my cave man wants me to kill for dinner.

Wouldn't be surprised. Males are biologically driven to be competative, aggressive, and physical. Modern Feminism and "gender theory" considers this all to be a social construct, and that boys are just defective little girls with dangly bits.

By trying to deny a man's nature, they destroy all the social mores that channeled those energies for socially good ends (e.g. protecting women and children, being providers), thus allowing negative aspects to rise up.

I don't know about down there but we've had a month of rain the past couple days. With any high winds we're gonna have major tree droppings. Our soil is saturated.

That thing gets within a hundred miles of me I'm sleeping in the basement. Last time I got this concerned was dead of winter, and we lost power for four days. Along with half a million others. The potential is there, all i'm sayin.

Ace, I don't recall such a hilarious post in quite a while. Nice comedy!

Browser says the term "metrosexual" appears more than a half-dozen times in comments already, so I don't have to go there.

Two things you quoted were close to pretty good, context notwithstanding.

1. Being between danger and the Mrs. Even in (seemingly) trivial situations, I find myself conscious of positioning like this. Feels silly sometimes, but, then, I've never been called upon (yet) to "try to" defend her.

2. A daughter will teach you things. Not the things that author thinks, of course. Like, for example, having a daughter makes me think more about firearms...!

940 The missing thread was beautiful. It was all about how the past seven
years were just an awful, awful mass delusion, and how, in reality, the world is at peace,
we've had spectacular economic growth after a scary economic crisis,
Vladimir Putin, the Chinese Communist Party, and the mullahs of Iran, if
they're not dead, are presently hiding from liberty-loving
revolutionaries, Al Sharpton, whoever ran Planned Parenthood, Barney Frank, a
solid percentage of Congress, and most of Hollywood are currently rotting in prison, the Red
Sox are going to the playoffs for the fifth year running, and the US is feared and respected by all.


It
wasn't all good news though. This one guy from Chicago, Barry Obronco
(sp?) and his "significant other" Reggie won't shut up about gay
marriage. Meh, c'est la vie.

951 Perhaps THIS is the real point of this whole embarrassing drivel (emphasis mine):

22. The modern man still ambles half-naked down his driveway each morning to scoop up a crisp newspaper.

Because the only way to get a crisp newspaper on one's driveway is to subscribe to the Platinum Delivery Service offered by the New York Times, n'est-ce pas?

954 >>> By the way, Twinkie, there's not much fat at all on a fillet. That's the main thing about them, and why they're preferred by children and finicky eaters.

Also: the word is "filet", as in "filet mignon".

And a real man orders a ribeye.

957 >>> 8. The modern man uses the proper names for things. For example, he'll say "helicopter," not "chopper" like some gauche simpleton

How about words like "Coke" (instead of Coca-Cola), as seen in 7, directly above... what a nitwit. This is too easy.

960 I hate the thought that a great fillet was made girlish. Yes it has no fat, but a rare-to medium rare fillet is awesome! I can't belief the idea that soap made an appearance. The modern man saves the remainder of every soap bar and mashes it into a new bar. We do not throw away any soap!

Yes, i cry. but I only cry when hungover. It is strange what can happens after drinking a 5th of Beam the night before and watching commercials.

This explains a lot about the modern man's politics.

966 9. Having a daughter makes the modern man more of a complete person. He learns new stuff every day.

Actually, I kind of agree with this one. Having a daughter (now 2) definitely changed me, my outlook on life and how I behave. I had nieces before I really enjoyed and loved and they loved me, but there's something about having a daughter that really changes you.

975 Honestly, I have to speak up in defense of a guy who does know his spouse/significant other's preferences and size in clothing. I part-timed after retirement from the USAF and before I became partner in the Tiny Publishing Bidness as a sales associate at Talbots ... and really, the number of totally clueless male shoppers trying to purchase something for their Significant Female Others without having any clue at all...
it was pathetic. Our usual dodge was to ask them -- OK, look around the store; do you see any other shoppers or associates who are about the height and weight of your SO?
But there was one male shopper that I dealt with, on one memorable occasion: he had his wife's size in everything, written down on a small business-card-sized card in his wallet, along with her color preferences.
I thought this was just totally awesome and logical. I pointed him out to all the other associates - the perfect man! (In that respect. Usually, we just advised that they purchase a gift card...)

977 20. On occasion, the modern man is the little spoon. Some nights,
when he is feeling down or vulnerable, he needs an emotional and
physical shield.

"little spoon" ? Say What ? Doesn't he know .. there is no spoon.

978 13. The modern man listens to Wu-Tang at least once a week.

Who the H is Wu-Tang, anyway?

The Wu-Tang Clan is an American hip hop group from New York City, originally composed of East Coast rappers RZA, GZA, Method Man, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, Inspectah Deck, U-God, Masta Killa, Cappadonna and the late Ol' Dirty Bastard.

... hey, isn't that the cast of the next Mad Max film ?

979 - The Modern Man is a man of intelligence and discernment. As such, he stopped taking the New York Times seriously at least a decade ago, and possibly as long ago as the 1980 election, realizing that it had become a provincial parody of a newspaper.

983 Actually this entire article can be 99% corrected by a simple search and replace:

For the phrase "modern man" substitute "douchebag" and the article becomes almost completely accurate, true, and correct.

The times author does make one error: the sort of douchebag he is describing doesn't put up a fight in the face of an intruder; he reverts to type and dunks his own head in the toilet in the hope that while the intruder is rolling on the floor laughing at him his spousal unit is able to flee to safety.

On second thought is the Times author implying that the modern woman can't protect herself and has to depend on something vaguely resembling a man to protect her? Alert the SJWs; their intense hen pecking, wing flapping and squawks are needed to correct this grievous wrong.

Ronda Rousey has written that she has the same criteria. Her problem is that - in her case - that approach eliminates about 99.999 % of the men in the world.

Sad selfish men of no import who aren't worth leaving a name or progeny. Entertaining for real men, and we point them out to our children as what not to be or love, unless they want to be the end of their genetic line... a thing to be only if they are unworthy. If so, then go learn to dance.
