Apparently the muslim community is "outraged".   OK - thanks for sharing -  :coffee.

    Do we forget that cops were primarily still using 6 Shot Revolvers well through the mid 80's? It wasn't until after 1986 that most departments then relented and went to autos.
    Capacity wasn't really an issue then... and honestly really it's not even an issue now.

    My scrappy youngest daughter is always trying to one up me by calling me a racist, a misogynist, etc. Her latest was "So you're saying I'm a dumb little girl" thinking she would shame me into backing down during a rapidly escalating argument she was having with me and her mother. My response: "Yes I am. What about it." I pretty much respond the same when she accuses me of being racist, sexist, whatever is the flavor of the day. Agreeing with her and asking "Yeah, So what?" disarms the hell out of her. I wish she'd catch on so she'd quit. I finally had to explain to her that I, her uncles, her grandfather and all my friends do not give a s_ _ t about those labels anymore since we are damned if we do and damned if we don't. She's not going to shame us into backing down or giving in to her silly teenage demands. There  also a certain freedom in that as well. Too many today tuck tail and scamper away at the slightest accusation that they are of a certain un-PC nature.

     :thumbup1   I have a nephew who is graduating high school this year.  Pretty good kid for the most part but as folks that age are prone to do he brings a certain amount of that kind of baggage home with him.  By now he knows that his dad and I will cut him zero slack when he starts mouthing any of that foolishness.  At this point he's become something of a pariah within the PC crowd at school because he has ( gasp  :shocked ) an actual job that he works at after school and on week-ends.   Nothing like getting an education in real world economics to act as an antidote to that sort of thing.

    I'm clearly behind the curve here.  I have never even heard of "the male gaze" before.  Unless maybe I heard the two words used together and drew a completely erroneous conclusion about what was being discussed.   :hmm

    Agreed. I'm sure in our future we'll see some otherwise good people and truly red blooded, patriotic Americans shoot off at the mouth, because they too are upset to see our country go to s___.

    Ah, got it.  Honestly, she may well grow out of it, too.  I know my sister who is also 17 gets these wild hair ideas about how "we do it wrong, and my life is going to be lived ______ differently."  She also outgrows theses fancies with regularity, only to move on to a different one.  :shrug

    Found an interesting clip with John Wayne talking about immigrants, minorities, and the treatment of women. Seeing as those are frequently topics covered here, thought it might fit.

    Agreed, I would reckon his views weren't at all that out of touch with the general American public at the time. Which brings up a question, I'm curious where the thought process went and how both politicians and Hollywood got so out of touch with the general public?

    Furthermore, how did the cultural zeitgeist get from those values and way of thinking to being changed to how it is today? Is it lack of Judeo-Christian culture? Is it lack of hardship in American's lives? What caused things to go wrong?

    How long have you got?   :hmm   The questions you ask are and have been the subject of more than one doctoral dissertation.   

    I could launch into some rambling, long winded answer that attempts to tie it all up into a nice neat bundle for you but I'd say the best authority on the subject that I know would be President Ronald Wilson Reagan.   An internet search for his speeches from the early days of his fledgling political career to the final days of his second administration will bring you words of more clarity and insight into the twentieth century than anything else I know.  It ought to be required reading for anyone who asks the questions you just posed.  He lived it and shaped a great deal of it.  He was a contemporary of John Wayne's but a good deal more thoughtful and well spoken.

    At the risk of sounding like I'm wearing shiny metallic haberdashery, I suspect that the left leaning progressive crowd intentionally infiltrated Hollywood and the media and slowly began to green light projects that cast traditional values in a poor light, maybe not as bad or evil but as foolish which may be more damaging, blocking or sabotaging projects that cast traditional values in a good light,  and finally by pushing and hyping projects that encouraged more "progressive" behavior reinforced with appeals to the baser side of human nature.
    Psyops, in other words.

    As much as I hate to say it, McCarthy's fears may well have been based in reality despite how poorly he tried to deal with those concerns.

    There are others who think so.

    When I first saw this I thought it was just a joke:

    Apparently some folks don't think so:

    http://www.nationalreview.com/article/445941/people-are-upset-wonder-woman-does-not-have-armpit-hair-feminist-reasons

    Some folks have way too much time on their hands.

    It would be my hope that one day we could set an example for our little girls that they don't have to change their body image or standard of beauty, just to please the matriarchal 3rd gen feminist society which we live in  :coffee.
