The Character Conversation We Won’t Have

Ben Shapiro: “Teaching respect for women begins with ensuring that solid male influences fill the lives of young men – men who respect women, cherish them, treasure them, and believe in protecting them. This is an unpopular stance, because it suggests that boys require men to raise them. Which they do. But that truth doesn’t fit the logic of the left, which seems to think that lack of fathers counts less than rhetorically bothersome phrases. For leftists, the answer to domestic violence isn’t to deal with any of the issues that could lead boys to become abusing men. The answer, instead, is to lecture Americans about the use of the word ‘sissy’ – not because that solves the problem, but because it makes those on the left feel warm and fuzzy inside. … We extol the language police even as we castigate moral authorities. And so our problems grow worse. But at least we feel better about them.”
