That has nothing to do with it, I introduced that as an example.

Where did this wackjob find my picture? Shocked

Anyway, I could write pages commenting on the idiocy of this essay, but that would mean I'd actually let the author impact my life, so that's out of the question.

I would like to address a more general problem though, which is how many foreigners try to find their idea of "vikings" in modern day Scandinavia. The Viking Age is well-known internationally, but most are ignorant of the period in between then and now, in which Scandinavia went through many changes. If you could still find vikings in Scandinavia today we'd be the least developed nations in the world. You might as well go to Japan looking for samurai or to Baghdad seeking an audience with the Caliph.

It's true that feminism is probably stronger here than most other places, but that's all for the better, especially for us girlyboys who wear shoulderbags.

Yeah, she threw a "haymaker." I saw it first hand at a party when a girl I was dating knocked out a 6'4 220Lbs ex-boyfriend right in front of me. Mind you that the girl in question here was 5'5 and 130lbs (soaking wet) and not particularly strong. She landed her "haymaker" right on the chin and he folded like an accordion. All she had was a scratch on her knuckle, no broken bones. She had done some martial arts, hence my statement earlier about being trained and eliminating the advantage of being bigger and more powerful than one's opponent.

This is my response to the essay that started the thread. I haven't read the comments yet.

What a pathetic, scared man the author is. He is afraid that women play football?! This scares him? Maybe he does well hiding in his Hollywood fantasies of "manliness."

There is a paradox about masculinism. If you are actually strong as a male, having women accomplishing things shouldn't frighten you. In fact, whining about how women control you is, well, um, unmanly. As unmanly as you can get.

Poor man! He is so frighten that a woman can outdo him that he equates this possibility with fascism. Maybe he should move to the mountains to live with the Taliban. They seem to fit his sad, poor definition of what true men are. Instead, he appears to stay put in that nightmarish dictatorship that Denmark is.

Your word against an orthropedic surgeon and a martial artist cool. I've been hit by a girl who was five two and she had tons martial arts training and she was fairly strong and she weighed around two hundred pounds, and it didn't harm me in any way and I'm not six four. I think you may be exaggerating a little bit.

So what? That she didn't harm you doesn't mean that no woman is able to harm any man.

My word against an orthopedic surgeon and a martial artist with an agenda, I'll take it. I'm glad to hear that during your encounter with a woman you were unharmed. Maybe you have a better jaw then the guy my girl hit, maybe he had a glass jaw, I don't know. However, your encounter has nothing to do with what I witnessed my (now ex-) girlfriend do. I have not exaggerated anything in that story. The fact of the matter is I witnessed it and I witnessed the next day's aftermath of which there was none but a scratch. By the way anybody can break their wrist or metacarpals when punching that is not more likely for one gender over another.

It seems to me that the author of this essay is not very secure in his masculinity. He shouldn't be threatened by feminists and women doing masculine activities.

Thats not what threatens him, its the female gender getting special treatment while men are treated like dirt, where's the equality in that?

How is beating up a man getting special treatment? Besides, the author is unhappy that women can do "masculine" things.

Boy, I wish more women did masculine things when I was a little kid. Then I would have done nothing but play American football with women

Glorifying Norse masculinity by lustful fantasy highlighting examples in Viking history as compared to placing blame on current Danish society and government policies for the "effeminate" male population says a lot about the author. I didn't read about any specific examples though. How is masulinity declining? I didn't know it was. Is the "fascist state" to blame? If so then what did they do to make girly men out of boys?
 
Looks like the guy who wrote the article is blurting out an anti-feminist agenda.

The nuttiness comes in the idea that men are treated like dirt. Of course in some ways women get special treatment. Men for instance don't get scans for breast cancer. On the other hand women aren't allowed to get treatment for prostate cancer.
 
And of course there's nothing remotely 'masculine' about having big muscles and beating people up. Concentrating on that is just a sign of feeling inferior.

Oh, yes he is:

Quote Danish girls play football, chew gum, shout and behave badly in public, dress slovenly, have bad attitudes and are generally not a good advertisement for the feminine at all.
