Mr. Perry looks as if he is coming off a meth bender.

I think Grayson Perry is pretty marvellous and usually too smart for this sort of faddle. He, of all people, should be sceptical of the idea that 'usefulness' is the true measure of worth.

I see Steve’s on form. That’s what I get for going shopping in the morning.

David

The spam filter is being bolshie again. If anyone has trouble with comments not appearing, email me and I’ll set then free.

What I think irks about articles of this kind – and the Guardian churns out some variation every few months – is the ostentatious disregard for something that, stripped of its particulars, isn’t silly at all. Setting aside the specifics of raft-building, urine-filtering or whatever, which most of us will never have to worry about, it seems to me that what Mr Grayson is disdaining - and by extension, what we are expected to disdain - is a general air of competence, of practical application (wilderness or not), and of being able and willing to give daunting things a go. Which, sadly, isn’t as common as one might think.

It's been my experience that most women love the decorative maleness that I possess and I have witnessed it in other manly looking men with whom I am acquainted.

Steve E

Speaking of being rugged, I never wanted to be a potter anyway, I always wanted to be a ... lumberjack!

Lord Bob

Well, I mean, Mr. Grylls is 15 years younger than Mr. Perry. Those whose physical gifts are fast-diminishing will always carp against the young and vital. It is a fact of life. Watch for Mr. Perry's new program in 2046 when he asserts that the essence of modern masculinity is a pair of nice warm slippers, a warm fire, and a holocopy of The Guardian.

Farnsworth M Muldoon

I apologize in advance, Mr. Perry and his wife.

His wife, Philippa, a psychotherapist, and daughter Florence, 22, were dressed smartly but less flamboyantly. “Being the wife of a trannie is great,” Philippa has said. “He always makes me look fantastic”.

Physician, heal thyself, if you have any time left over from working on your other half.

Yeah boy, howdy, why this clown gets to comment on masculinity is a wonder of the universe. I am a bit disappointed in HRH, though, as to why she didn't throw this looney out on his ear when he showed up to collect his CBE in a dress.

Spiny Norman

...at risk of seeming unkind, readers are invited to compare the mugshots of Mr Perry and Mr Grylls, these two contrasting expressions of modern masculinity, and ponder which is likely to attract the more widespread and vigorous sexual attention.

On a related note, Iowahawk has this to say about a certain aspect of "modern" masculinity.

David

I think Grayson Perry is pretty marvellous and usually too smart for this sort of faddle.

Thing is, dismissing masculinity as somehow obsolete or hopelessly problematic is very much in fashion, at least in certain circles. Say, gatherings of pinheads. And so Mr Perry’s commentary, or rather his posturing, reminds me of this achingly smug man-bashing session in the pages of the New Statesman - in an issue guest-edited by Mr Perry, oddly enough - and where leftist pundits and assorted luvvies told us that men – and straight white men in particular – are a “dying class,” a “rotten, mushroomy class,” whose collective actions have done nothing but blacken the planet and who should either embrace extinction or “end up in a zoo.”

Dom

"...it [masculinity] isn’t fit for the 21st century." This is why we need RuPaul.

Fred the Fourth

where leftist pundits and assorted luvvies told us that men – and straight white men in particular – are a “dying class,” a “rotten, mushroomy class,” whose collective actions have done nothing but blacken the planet and who should either embrace extinction or “end up in a zoo.”

The inevitable result of failure to teach or learn history. People grow up thinking that the culture around them just came from the air, and therefore they believe they can change it any way they want, and all the good stuff (like working sewers, clean water, antibiotics, and iPads) will, of course, just naturally continue to be available.

David

This is why we need RuPaul.

A while ago, I caught a glimpse of RuPaul’s Drag Race and was disappointed to find it didn’t involve any cars. I can’t be alone in thinking actual drag racing would make the series unmissable. Enormous hair, fake boobs and yards of billowing chiffon all thundering along at 200 mph.

WTP

...told us that men – and straight white men in particular – are a “dying class,” a “rotten, mushroomy class,” whose collective actions have done nothing but blacken the planet and who should either embrace extinction or “end up in a zoo.”

I keep seeing such "telling us" things, most often from the feminists but they continue to gather fellow travelers, as this post shows. I know I'm not the first to ask this but who exactly is going to extinct us or put us in a zoo? The unicorns that rule their lollipop fantasy worlds? I'm never around when this nonsense gets said or I'd raise the point myself, but I'm real curious how such plays out.

Also, I'm reminded of this...

Including HRM. How many "feminists" can do this today?

...yards of billowing chiffon all thundering along at 200 mph

Simple case of the media normalizing insanity via the shock effect sales ploy.

Ah. Well. Yes. Let’s assume the vehicles in question have been modified so as to minimise the risk of catastrophic fashion entanglement and subsequent loss of fabulousness. And they’d probably need big pedals too. Slamming on the brakes in eight-inch heels while maintaining a perfect pout could prove a touch dicey.

Oh, come on. You know you’d watch.

Hal

An amusing anecdote: "No. No. Yes, I mean no."

Siiiiigggggghhh.

Indeed a reminder that the purpose of the Secret Service is coordinating protection, where the perfectly innocent office holder thus has to put up with the current results . . .

Daniel Ream

Must we?

Hedgehog

Oh, come on. You know you’d watch.

Of course I would. And as far as the eight-inch heels are concerned, I remember an episode of Mythbusters in which the hosts tested the hypothesis that high heels (and other assorted types of footwear) could impede the proper operation of a car. If I recall correctly, the conclusion was that, actually, they're not that much of a hindrance. I think it's snow boots that presented the greatest difficulty, mainly because they make it difficult to mash fewer than two or three pedals at a time.

Farnsworth M Muldoon

...a “dying class,” a “rotten, mushroomy class,” whose collective actions have done nothing but blacken the planet...

At least, assuming he is not being sarcastic, this Tony Parsons guy seems to get it:

What has the Great White Male ever done for us? Shakespeare and Dickens. Picasso and Matisse. Morrissey and Marr. Jagger and Richards. Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the worldwide web. Steve Jobs and Bill Gates, the inventors of the new century. The men who stormed the beaches of Normandy. The warriors who protected us, the fathers who held us. Hemingway and Fitzgerald. John F Kennedy and John Cooper Clarke. Bob Dylan and Dylan Thomas.

White men, eh? What a waste of space!

If he is not being sarcastic, I have to wonder how that slipped in amongst the other dreck.

David

an episode of Mythbusters...

Ah yes, I remember it well.

Farnsworth M Muldoon

Steven Crowder's outstanding rant at an SJW type.

This was evidently touched off by some clown(s) trying to shout down Christina Hoff Sommers (around 16:30 mark) during a U Mass panel discussion. Milo is also a guest artist. The Q&A at the end is a nice biopsy of leftist pathology.

Joe

Everything that makes Grayson Perry's world livable, from the sidewalks to the HVAC, to the public sanitation, to the roof over his head is the result of that which he detests.

There is no magical option where he can have one without the other, and he isn't smart enough to tell anyone else how to live.

He may go f*ck himself.

Dom

I never heard of Grayson Perry, so I googled him to see who it was who could pontificate so seriously about masculinity. I ... I didn't know. I just didn't know

james

When my kids were younger, we used to have their birthday parties in our house.

For the boys, we would sometimes hire the community hall or 5 a side soccer pitch and run them into the ground.

Even when we got back to the house, many would still want to play football in the garden, or generally batter the heads off each other. I would generally be in the middle of it all, and only took a break when all of the kids had had their fill, and were content to go indoors or just sit down to eat

After several such parties, my wife pointed out that the kids who kept me playing the football and chasing/ wrestling/ fighting games the longest were those who were being reared by single mothers.

It is something that has always come to mind, when I see masculinity dismissed as a social construct or as something problematic.

The Russian defence minister...What a pussy....

Farnsworth M Muldoon

From the G.
Go girls......

In the case of Germany's Ursula von der Leyen, there is little doubt that a successful stint in the defence ministry would set her up as the obvious successor to her party colleague and current chancellor, Angela Merkel. The 55-year-old doctor, who has seven children, made her name as a strong supporter of parental leave during her stint in the family and labour ministry.

Well if that doesn't qualify someone to be a minister of defense, I don't know what does. Europe is clearly in the hands of top men. Sorry, Top. Women.

Flynpigranch

Grayson looks like the love child of Harpo Marx and Roger Daltrey.

Jimmy

The inevitable result of failure to teach or learn history. People grow up thinking that the culture around them just came from the air, and therefore they believe they can change it any way they want, and all the good stuff (like working sewers, clean water, antibiotics, and iPads) will, of course, just naturally continue to be available.

Indeed there is a sort of Magical thinking at work with these types of people (also the insufferably smug New Statesman article). All the ease with which we navigate and enjoy modern society and its many benefits seems to just have "happened". Modernity is born fully formed and requires no upkeep, no sacrifice, no hard labour or exposure to danger. In fact these realities are often cheekily subsumed under the labels technology and progress.

Feminists too seem to believe that the extensive health and social benefits that women benefit from in developed countries just exist as inviolable "rights" in themselves that will always be granted because they are rights. The preconditions for this beneficial redistribution of wealth under the guise of rights is seemingly irrelevant, what matters is that women must have these rights as a matter of principle, and if we need more Magic to make that happen then so be it.

What set Crowder off in the video above.

David

one has to wonder how these types were raised to think that is either acceptable behavior, or an effective debate technique,

Well, it isn’t meant to be an effective debating technique, in the sense of testing ideas and exchanging facts, etc. You won’t find much good faith. That’s why these creatures rarely hang around for the Q&A sessions that Milo, Dr Sommers and Ben Shapiro usually hold after their talks. Holding fire until the Q&A and asking questions calmly and on a fair footing would risk failure and public humiliation. (What if all that precious rage is based on an error, a lie, a made-up statistic? What if the speaker isn’t intimidated by a pile of question-begging buzzwords and incoherent slogans?)

And waiting for the Q&A would be much too polite – to the speaker and the audience - and less likely to disrupt a speaker’s train of thought and their confidence – which is, of course, the goal. It isn’t about principles or reality, or getting to the facts of the matter; it’s about shutting people down and exercising power.

David

And this isn’t the face of someone who wants to have a debate in any meaningful sense. This is a fat, plain, rather stupid girl letting us know how resentful she is, how much she dislikes the world.

It’s psychodrama.

Hal

It’s psychodrama.

I'm trying to think of what else comes to mind, but working from that picture, all I'm getting is glasses stuck onto either the guides or one of the guests.

David

Re the young woman pictured above - the one constantly interrupting, screaming “fuck you!” and waving her big arms about – our budding intellectual - I very much doubt her passion is driven by the finer points of free speech or social equity or whatever. I don’t think she’s trying to articulate a political argument, or make anyone change their mind on any particular subject. She doesn’t seem awfully clued-up on the subject she’s supposedly angry about and certainly isn’t keen to engage with contrary viewpoints, or even let them be heard by others. She is, however, angry and resentful, wallowing in emotion, and presumably her “social justice” circle gives some outlet for that, a pretext to indulge whatever personal demons and resentments rattle around her mind.

On campuses, “social justice” activism tends to attract an awful lot of people quite like this, people who want a license to be angry and obnoxious, to impose themselves on others, to enjoy the thrill of power, albeit temporarily and in anti-social ways. And their anger and obnoxiousness may not in fact be driven by the ostensible grievance, which is often ludicrous. Maybe they just want to make the world pay.

Trevor

It's psychodrama.

It's the embodiment of a (very) round peg stuck in a square hole. She doesn't belong in any type of post-statutory education.

Not so long ago such a person would have left school functionally literate, capable of basic arithmetic, prepared for a low-level job (cue catty speculation). And would have been happy.

Now, having marinated for a couple of decades in child-centred education, self-esteem, self-pity and political correctness, what is she good for?

Tim Newman

what is she good for?

Loosehead prop?

David

She doesn’t belong in any type of post-statutory education.

Actually I think that, or something like it, may be a big part of the phenomenon, at least on campus. Much of the “social justice” contingent is centred around the Angry Studies departments, which tend to attract students with quite low SAT scores, relative to, say, engineering or physics. And of course beneficiaries of “affirmative action,” whereby mediocre students are steered towards an environment they’re really not suited for, even in pseudo-subjects with very low intellectual standards. And many of these students will soon start to struggle, and fail, and feel uncomfortable and resentful.

Happily, there are plenty of ready-made excuses for these feelings. And so their failure is due to racism or sexism or “white privilege,” or “triggering,” or “microaggressions,” or the all-powerful Patriarchy.

Spruance

After the muslim/north african grabfest at new year's eve in Cologne, the question arose in the press where all the german boyfriends wer when their girls were robbed, grabbed and raped? Well, after 40 years of being bombarded with ideas like that violence does not lead anywhere, violence comes in spirals, and so forth, one can answer, yes, they were there, but they behaved like their female educators wanted.
We will hear a lot more of this.

Farnsworth M Muldoon

I don’t think she’s trying to articulate a political argument, or make anyone change their mind on any particular subject.

Yes to that and all your other points, but, this particular one's psychopathology aside, I am still amazed at how such a crop got this way. Were she an isolated case it would be easy just to write her off as her steamboat having gwine round the bend, but the hall obviously had several, e.g. the neck beard in the Q&A whose contribution was "Fu#k Trump, BLM", or the moslima who failed to grasp that in any of the 11 countries to which Crowder alluded, she would not be in anything other than a segregated auditorium if even allowed to be in a university. How bereft of reality and possessed of a sense of entitlement does one really have to be to sit there yelling "You don't belong here", and, "We don't want you here", when it is obvious that most of the "we" in the audience do ?

Having been in college during the later Vietnam (1A, number 226, they got me later for other reasons) and other protests, this sort of carp rarely went on, nor was it, as Dr. Sommers pointed out, tolerated even by their own ilk.

R. Sherman

What's amazing to me is how quickly these types wish to jettison all of society's little conventions of behavior, i.e. don't interrupt when someone else is talking, as if there are no long-term consequences to the well-functioning commonweal. Do any of these people contemplate what happens when people stop being polite and engaging in respectful discussion? What is the alternative, unless it's a fistfight?

What’s amazing to me is how quickly these types wish to jettison all of society’s little conventions of behaviour

What’s also interesting is how often and widely this is being allowed to happen on campuses – with utter impunity. Even as a stroppy 20-year-old, it didn’t occur to me that I could repeatedly disrupt someone’s lecture, insulting everyone who’d turned up to listen, and scream obscenities at invited guests, all with no expectation of consequences. But Little Miss Cliché Mountain rants endlessly before any hint of official disapproval. Dr Sommers asks for someone to intervene… and nothing happens. Eventually, the Indignant Land Whale is warned, half-heatedly, emptily… and again, nothing happens. And so she resumes her screeching and arm-flapping as if these were things that young intellectuals do.

If staff and administrators aren’t willing to enforce norms of civilised behaviour, and the standards of behaviour to which students sign agreement as a condition of their stay, if it’s simply too much effort, or too uncool, then quite a few people will seize the opportunity to misbehave.

I'd say that he detests it precisely because he senses (or knows) that Better Men Than He created it all, and knows that he could never measure up to such men.

Now she’s big in Australia, as it were.

I’m trying to imagine what it must be like to have no apparent inkling of how your own behaviour undermines your pretensions and reveals them as ludicrous. I mean, Ms Cora Miriam has handed the world a near-perfect distillation of why she and her peers are contemptible and absurd. As Glenn Reynolds puts it, she’s the new face of campus activism.
