America is quickly becoming a country of neutered men and this trend must be eradicated from our society.

This great country of the red, white and blue used to be a nation where strength was an attribute and something that people valued. Currently large portions of our society have accepted the idea that our skinny jean wearing generation is a totally okay thing for this country. They are incorrect.

The world needs a hell of a lot more men like Clint Eastwood and John Wayne. America went from being the country that stormed the beaches of Normandy to fight and kill Nazis to a nation where adult students on college campuses are so afraid of opposing opinions that they need a safe space. Here’s a bit of truth; if you need a safe space then you’re too weak to operate in society. Words don’t kill so there’s no reason to be afraid of them.

Hollywood, UNITED STATES: Picture dated from 1969 of American actor John Wayne acting the role of one-eyed marshall Rooster Cogburn in Harry Hathaway’s film “True Grit” for which he won an Oscar as best actor. The 100th anniversary of Wayne’s birth is being observed 26 May 2007. Wayne was born Marion Robert Morrison in Winterset, Iowa. His career began in silent movies in the 1920s and was a major star from the 1940s to the 1970s. He died 11 June 1979. (Photo credit should read STAFF/AFP/Getty Images)

Social justice warriors are also a cancer on our society that must be stopped. Here’s another quick fact; America isn’t that bad of a place. Systematic oppression isn’t a real thing in this country and anybody who believes that I’m wrong is a moron. Now some people will jump up and down shouting about police killing black people. Give me a break. Police shootings are insanely statistically rare, but the media plays them all up regardless about whether or not they’re justified. A South Carolina police officer shot a fleeing man in the back and was promptly arrested. The government isn’t allowing people with law enforcement badges to just murder people in the streets with zero consequences.

Where I come from things are earned everyday from the moment the sun comes up to the moment the sun goes down. Nothing is expected to be handed to you for free. This used to be a common trend in America. America didn’t like the Nazis so we went to work and killed. America hated the Japanese empire after Pearl Harbor so we went to work and ended their empire. On a much smaller scale people all around this country used to understand that they had to earn what they had on a daily basis. Unfortunately this is a dying trend.

The message of this hot take is very simple: if you wear skinny jeans, don’t know how to use a gun, drink coffees with weird names and are a social justice warrior who believes in safe spaces then you’re the problem with America.
