As you will start to notice, I'm taking part in the "Carnival of Modern Man" project. As part of the program, I was directed to other bloggers that had signed on. What I've found is that there are more and more of us men out there that are mad as Hell at the way we are depicted by news reports, advertising, etc. And we are beginning to finally awaken from our long hibernation.
One of the bloggers I've started visiting is Ray Bacon and his Bacon is as Bacon does commentary. In particular, I found myself giving him a hearty "right on" when he wrote the following comments:
Let's face it, white American men have become the world's punchline. From Dubya down to the "Real Men of Genius", we're pretty much the only group of people left on the planet that you're allowed to stereotype without some organized civil liberties kicking your ass.
It sounds as if the two of us might be like-minded even though we've never met. Gives me hope that there are many more of us out there that just need to let our voices be heard.
For the rest of his commentary, check out his "Is this Us?" post.
