As I was reading a Forbes report on the income of justin bieber, I seriously read this line, “the Canadian crooner has toured the world” as this, “the Canadian crooner has tortured the world.” I was all, what the heck?!!! Even FORBES knows he’s junk. It took me two more times to figure it out I was reading it wrong. But those brief moments were pretty fun.
My post on Chivalry brought up some good feedback. One comment by a former NFL player and Pro Highland Games thrower and best of the best in the WOB (I swear I try to look like him when I throw for height but for the 14 inches shorter, a little lighter, and that girlie thing.) Are girls and young women demanding more of a justin bieber type male (skinny, punk, rude, treats people with absolutely no respect, unable to speak like a partially educated person, self absorbed, law breaking, white trash, low talent, ego larger than his penis will ever be but we can share jeans?)
Here’s my theory: Insecure mommies are afraid of manly men. What does it say when we go out at youth functions and the 13 year old Oz man towers over the majority of the dads? What happened to the set of women behind me that decided they need small, croc wearing husbands (ya, I had to get my hate for those things in there too;) ? The mom’s are so small, their size 0 jeans are baggy on them and the only thing giving them some bulk are their huge, knee length expensive boots. Seriously. We have an entire generation of women who are afraid of size, both for themselves and their husbands. I literally have heard some wives of men I train say something to the effect that they don’t think it’s healthy to get a lot of mass or muscles. FOK!
But here’s where the beeber fever comes in. These mommies also do not want their daughters admiring big, strong 7th graders who are almost ready to shave and are already filling out their gym shorts. OH NO! Not my baby girl! Those boys are too “manly” already to I’m going to steer her to the little boy who someone told him he could sing and he’ll probably never have enough testosterone flowing to actually need to shave so he’s safe for my girl to love. And then they buy his shit, and by shit I don’t mean stuff, I mean the feces that encompasses his energy. But he’s small, and non-threatening. Because if mommy is afraid of manly men, then daughter will be too. So they’ve made him a millionaire and encouraged his crap behavior (which ironically enough, even though I started this post last night, I just heard that he’s been arrested for DUI early this morning and kept throwing the F-bomb at the arresting officer. If ever there was an appropriate time for police brutality, this was it.)
But the 19 year old is what so many moms have encouraged their daughters to look for in a male (can’t say man, this punk is far from ever having the ability of becoming a man.) YourBad. Now what? Now that you’ve perpetuated the myth that this asshole is a completely appropriate first crush, and he’s telling cops to F*k off. Now what?
Does it take a strong woman to admire a strong alpha male? I don’t think so, but maybe a confident one. Do you know women who do not look for Alpha Males but for skinny, weak punks who treat the world as their individual port a pottie? Ask why. Really, do it. And no, I’m not saying that everyone should be the size of Bigg. But manly; alpha male; taking care of business; confident; runs their home; makes decisions; a leader; actually, THE leader. Good to others, has a beard (yes, had to get that one in there too;) Not a maniac who thinks screaming and swearing their way through the aisles of life is the way to go. Just…a man.
But not a beeber. Nope.
Our doubts are traitors and make us lose the good we oft might win by fearing to attempt.
