    Tragically, like many virtues in this day and age, admitting your limits of knowledge is viewed as a flaw and “real men” bluster.Report

      Exactly – what activist group will keep its spotlight by saying, “Let’s wait and gather more info on this?” It’s also part of increasing technology and speed elsewhere in life. Twitter has a lot of people wondering why their remote control of life doesn’t change what’s on, because change and progress still are the speed they’ve always gone at.Report

      Remember the days when being a ‘real man’ meant being able to throw a football, and ‘real men’ would never even attempt pseudo-intellectualism, because that would make them look like a nerd…?Report

        I’m not sure what you mean by that. In the “middlebrow” 1950’s, a real man was expected to be able to split logs, change the oil on his car, discuss art and politics…everything except cook indoors and teach his children.Report
