Not just for women anymore

The Hyacinth Girl: Hysterics: not just for women anymore:
What an hysterical ninny. Ah, the age of the gelded man, for whom independent thought is as scary as a non-hybrid car. Though Mark Steyn is a bit taller than you’d expect, he’s hardly scary. I suppose that it’s the aforementioned independent thought that freaks this Tweeter out.

Sad.
I wanted especially to draw Gentle Reader's attention to April's excellent summary of the present age -- "Ah, the age of the gelded man, for whom independent thought is as scary as a non-hybrid car."

One of the things I long ago noticed about “liberals” (and, naturally enough, mock) is that they imagine to shriek that this or that is “frightening” or “chilling” is to make a decisive and utterly compelling argument.

Five-year old girls are more manly, and more rational, than the typical “liberal.” Seven-year olds, tops.


edit (where are my manners?); this is what April is talking about:
Mark Steyn is a truly scary man. Pseudo-intellectual thug who sounds good while saying bad things.

*giggles* Mark Steyn. Thug.
*snort*
Right.

He does thuggy-things, like say conservative stuff! And stand up to bullies who don't like that!

Oh, and he does math.

Terrifying.

Well, you know, Steyn does have that whole mid-Atlantic accent thing going on. "Bad things" always sound better when said with an accent.
