British politician Diane Abbott has called for the end of what she calls a ‘viagra and Jack Daniels’ male culture adopted by the contemporary man.
In a speech given today based on the hopes and fears of today’s young man, the British shadow health minister explained:
“It’s all become a bit like the film Fight Club – the first rule of being a man in modern Britain is that you’re not allowed to talk about it (anxiety). This generation no longer asks itself what it means to be a man.
Growing numbers of men of all ages [are] turning to the drug by themselves due to performance anxiety, triggered by a host of psychological issues – from our increasingly pornified culture making ‘normal’ sex seem boring, to financial pressures.”
‘It may be a secret, psychological crutch for some men, who are under pressure to meet a pornified expectation. Unable to find jobs after leaving school or university, many return home to live with parents and ‘find themselves locked into a transitional phase at home, or find themselves voluntarily creating an extended adolescence, sometimes resentful of family life.”
She went on to add:
“At its worst, it’s a celebration of heartlessness; a lack of respect for women’s autonomy; and the normalisation of homophobia. I fear it’s often crude individualism dressed up as modern manhood”.
Though she was talking about British men, we’d say this is an issue the rest of the world is currently facing…especially considering the ever rising popularity of ‘Molly’ and how many a man’s standard of female beauty routes from what they see in pornography.
A person who has or affects to have a special appreciation of art and beauty.
