Cock Sparrer vs. The Millennials
It’s way too easy for people who live online and amongst Millennial culture to flip out over the dearth of testosterone in modern society. Well, here’s some perspective for you: guys who never get stuck doing manual labor never have been terribly masculine in the first place, whether they be middle-class gits in the 1970s or Patreon babies now. And “society” should not be judged by millennials, who will all be dead of obesity-related diseases and out of our hair by 2030 anyway. Go out and watch some grizzled and life-worn gen-Xers jumping around to our old-people punk rock music, and you will be assured that big manly dudes are alive and well. They don’t even have to read Return of Kings to puzzle out how to be well. If you live in the real world—neither academia nor the Intertube—then if you’re born a man, being a man comes pretty naturally. Who knew?
