The Warrior Lives! (...just not in France)

Heh.  France declares the macho man dead...yeah, right, like when I think of what makes a man (what would make my grandfather proud?), I think of what some French guy dreams up...sure.

While this ol' Paratrooper might occasionally wear the fly lime green shirt (but no pink), I think we're taking this metrosexual crap a bit too far.

PARIS (AFP) - Macho man is an endangered species, with today's male more likely to opt for a pink flowered shirt and swingers' clubs than the traditional role as family super-hero, fashion industry insiders say.

Now, I've written about the Warrior Caste and why I only hang with sheepdogs.  And I agree mostly with Kim du Toit's essay about the Pussification of the Western Male.

However, I have no fear about the end of the masculine male in America.  Pierre Legrand at the Pink Flamingo Bar & Grill demonstrates why...

Disclaimer:  Um, yeah, I haven't been known to be, um, "exactly supportive" of France...
