I *loathe* Sentimentality

I *loathe* Sentimentality (the capital-S in intentional).

Michael Egnor posted this cartoon following the recent mass-murder of children at a public indoctrination facility:

My reaction/response is:
Actually, this cartoon -- and, more importantly, the mind-set behind it -- is a prime example of what is wrong with and is actively destroying America: the feminization of the body politic. This cartoon finely expresses-and-illustrates the solipsistic "Everything is always all about me" attitude that seems to come naturally to women (*), and that since the ratification of the 19th Amendment has increasingly come to be seen as the default public setting.

(*) At any rate, to those whose psyches are still those of junior high school girls – and present-day culture seems to be deliberately designed to keep most people, male or female, from ever advancing past that stage.

I agree about the emasculation of the American male and the strange lingering at Jr High School girl mentality (e.g., the internet wannabe Crude who posts at Victor's blog is a great example of this overpersonalizing chatterbox gossip).

On the other hand, the 19th amendment, I would propose, and women's "rights" more generally, isn't the culprit. It is that they have become virilized, masculinized, which goes hand in hand with the emasculation of men. If they stayed feminine, even with the vote, it wouldn't emasculate or feminize men.

Sort of like a woman who can vote in Pakistan but votes to keep her burka on out of respect for tradition and her husband.
