Quotations


Surely women’s liberation is a most unpromising panacea. But the movement is working politically, because our sexuality is so confused, our masculinity so uncertain, and our families so beleaguered that no one knows what they are for or how they are sustained.

Unlike femininity, relaxed masculinity is at bottom empty, a limp nullity. While the female body is full of internal potentiality, the male is internally barren. . . . Manhood at the most basic level can be validated and expressed only in action.

Like the Pentagon, our social science often reduces all phenomena to dollars and body counts. Sexuality, family unity, kinship, masculine solidarity, maternity, motivation, nurturing, all the rituals of personal identity and development, all the bonds of community, seem “sexist,” “superstitious,” “mystical,” “inefficient,” “discriminatory.” And, of course, they are -- and they are also indispensable to a civilized society.
