Pull Over

Park yourself and read this thoughtful and thought-provoking post on the nature of male/female relationships in the U.S. today. The Futurist takes the basic premise of Kim du Toit's 2003 post entitled The Pussification Of The Western Male and ratchets up the arguments to a factor of 10.

While the tone is angry and will certainly grate on the modern feminine psyche (not the feminist psyche, which will reject it wholesale) like nails on a blackboard, when you look past the anger and into the basic arguments you'll find a great deal of truth there, too.

Like the original du Toit post, I suspect this post will set off a firestorm of self-defensive he said/she said squabbling across the internet. That's a shame. I hope, for the more enlightened thinkers among us, it provokes thoughtful and respectful discussion instead.

(A tip of the cap to the Instapundit.)
Since I've already pointed you to one writer who serves up a healthy portion of controversial thought, I might as well also direct you to this post on San Francisco's cultural change over time as a harbinger of the direction we may be headed as a country, as well.
