The Lost Art of Manliness: The Most Nonsensical Article on Manhood Ever Written

So you have probably seen them at your local supermarket, this new kind of man wearing skin tight pink pants. Such images have the likes of Sir William Wallace (Brave Heat) turning in their graves.

Has the 21st century man lost his manliness? Well according to an article published in The Independent U.K. modern man is a “wimp!’ Australian anthropologist Peter McAllister claims that many pre-historic Australian Aboriginals could have outrun world 100 and 200 meter record holder Usian Bolt in modern conditions. He also claims that some Tutsi men in Rwanda exceeded the current world high jump record of 2.45 meters during initiation ceremonies in which they had to jump at least their own height to progress to manhood. Certainly his most eye catching claim was that any Neanderthal woman could have beaten former bodybuilding champion Arnold Schwarzenegger in arm wrestling (even the terminator is a wimp).

The day MANHOOD died...

The day MANHOOD died…

The opening sentence of his prologue in his book titled ‘The Science of the Inadequate Modern Male’ reads as follows; “if you are reading this then you or the male you bought it for are the worst man in history.”  Is Peter McAlister right? Are we the sorriest masculine homosapiens to have ever walked the planet. Physically it seems we can’t compete with our fore-fathers, Roman legions for instance completed more than one and a half marathons a day carrying more than half their body weight in equipment. This is a feat most ‘remote control’ modern men can only dream of completing.

The physical decline of the modern man I believe has been caused by a distinct lack of physical activity. This has been the case since the industrial revolution, and scientist are saying modern man has lost 40% of the shafts of his long bones because their bodies don’t carry heavy loads anymore. With the emergence of the metro sexual man, can the modern man ever recover. The modern man seems to be spending more time in front of the mirror and in fabric stores shopping for sheets than playing sports and being active as men. Women are now taking the lead and fixing things around the house because man just can’t get away from the square box known as the television.

Not good enough. Just another weakling old arnold

It’s not just modern man’s musicality (or lack thereof) that is in sharp decline, modern man’s ability to be a leader is at an all time low. The sad reality is that I’m seeing more and more young men at the peak of their intellectual capacity living with their girlfriends’ (her house that she paid for), driving around in her car without an ounce of shame. This culture of grown men lacking the ability to take care of themselves and relying on girlfriends and mothers is a testament of how weak the modern man has become.

Too many men today would not even make Genghis Khan's girls army

Too many men today would not even make Genghis Khan’s girls army

I doubt that the next Genghis Khan can emerge from this sorry generation of pink wearing, curtain shopping men. It is time the modern man toughened up, and started taking responsibility. Get out of your girlfriends’ house and get your own house and most of all stop calling mum for bail outs and grow a pair! Man up dude!

That’s our piece and tell them you heard it from Matt “The Rat” Mkhize.
