CR England Trucks With Three Bunks

Just so we are all clear on what is being discussed, "toxic masculinity" refers to men who see their masculinity tied to raping and/or sexually harassing women. It isn't about being a "manly man". The people who try to make it about being a "manly man" are lying to you.

A man who has to harass women, turn them into sex objects without agency or a mind of their own, isn't a real man. A real man treats people with respect. A real man doesn't need to run down others to feel better about himself.

I totally agree with everything you said Stevo. We live in a "poor me" society now. Back in the day the complainers were the ones we tried to toughen up. Today they're being nurtured.

Being tough and proving yourself used to be a badge of honor, now they try to make it sound criminal. I heard the expression "toxic masculinity" the other day and thought that these soft, sensitive types think manly men are toxic until the sh*t hits the fan and you need someone to defend the country or run into a burning building to save people or risk their lives doing the hard, dirty, dangerous jobs that make society so easy for the Keyboard Rambos of the world who are busy typing out their mean tweets from their mom's basement. Make one of these whiners put down their keyboard and do the dirty work for themselves and they won't be talking about "toxic masculinity" any longer.

The devastation of smoking

Bruce,

Sorry to hear about your friend. My father-in-law died from lung cancer. He retired, got diagnosed, and died all in the span of six months.

In addition to the serious reasons for quitting smoking, for every cigarette you smoke God takes one day off your life and gives it to Keith Richards.

Rob, that's some classic dark humor about Keith Richards! When he does finally die, no embalming will be necessary.

Keith Richards actually died years ago but no one had the heart to tell him.
