"This modern world is literally turning men into pussies"

Are Games the Last Bastion of Manliness? Gameplayer examines the question

"Masculinity is under threat. This modern world is literally turning men into pussies. If only that were idle hyperbole. But no: widespread environmental contamination by tens of thousands of different kinds of pesticides is distorting the hormonal balance of all vertebrate life. Including man."

If you think that Marcus Fenix and chainsaws on guns is something worth celebrating masculinity, well, yeah...I guess you think that steriods are natural.

I prefer being a marcus fenix instead of those JRPG 'guys' , where you're often not sure if it is in reality a guy or not lol

SlappingOysters3127d ago

Well but Alcon.

The Duke is the granddaddy, and all came characters should be dedendents of his endless wit and charm

But chick dig softer guys, so the androgene jrpg guys probably get more p***y (lol)

This seemed more a rant about current political policey and mainstream media views that they just tagged on video games at the end.

The author resents the fact that men are being portraid as simpletons yet he points to Marcus Fenix as an icon of true masculinity. Marcus Fenix, a testosteron filled hulking He-Man, who's soul job it to utter truly thick dialoge and part bad guys hair clear through to their toes.

Still unsure what the author was trying to get at.

I dunno... reading the article. The whole point of the story is in the first paragraph about pollution. The rest is fluff.

It's true, Men are turning into girly pussies, and for some reason alot of people seem to think this is a good thing..... But I never did credit the majority of society with much common sense so I spose I shouldn't be too surprised!
