Through Instapundit:

"Last year a Salon article titled, 'In praise of the 'beta males,'' made the rounds and we
all rolled our eyes. The author wrote:

'My husband will occasionally tell me a story - about apologizing to someone who was in the
wrong or a tense email exchange that he ended with a smiley face - and wryly conclude, 'That's
how beta I am.' Personally, I would prefer to call this 'sensitivity, emotional intelligence,
and peacemaking.' But, sure, if we're to crudely categorize men as either alpha or beta,
leaving zero room for nuance, and if we define kind, nurturing behaviors that cannot be
categorized as stereotypically, defensively masculine as "beta," I suppose my husband is a
beta. And thank goodness for that.'

Of course, it would take a self-proclaimed feminist on Salon to stand up for the beta males
since they won't do it themselves. Sure, it seems great to have the sensitive, peacemaking
beta male who will watch rom-coms with you on a Saturday night. For the women who seek beta
males, it seems they'd rather replace female friends than gain a boyfriend or husband."

I dont subscribe to alpha or beta. I do what i want. If i feel like fighting or arguing because i believe it is wrong i will. And ill go for the throat if feel threatend. If i could care less about it or dont feel like fighting i try to diffuse the situation. I pick my fights.

The article is a rip on modern men, particularly journalists and the cowards they are/promote.

"America has finally built the man of the future, and, surprise, it's a woman.
And not a daring sort of woman at that. Sort of a wallflower of a woman, a gossip, a mirror-gazer.
Acculturated wants to know where the manly journalists have gone."

Hey i find that offensive. Who and where do i start to sue?
I would say Mom and Dad is a start. Then uncles and aunts. Followed by every teacher and adult you ever had contact with before your 18th birthday. After that every author of every book, article, and newspaper you ever read. Last but not least are all the TV stations and movie studios that produced every emasculating show or program you ever watched or even heard of.

It's a start...
