Says Glenn Greenwald “…I wonder what he [Andrew Klaven, the right wing nut guy] thinks of the women who go and fight the wars for which he’s a vocal (shrieking) tough-guy cheerleader but won’t fight himself? Ultimately, the only cure for this level of insecurity over one’s masculinity is to become a cheerleader for wars, torture, “getting tough” with our current Enemy (today: Iran), and politicians who prance around in fighter pilot costumes on the decks of aircraft carriers. The vicarious sensations of pulsating strength must be so soothing to someone like this, so desperate to prove their manhood…” Opnion piece here. So what’s the context for this? Well, this is Klaven [the right wing nut guy]: “I’m the old-fashioned King of the Castle type: my wife knew it when she married me, she knows it now, and she knows where the door is if she gets sick of it. And you can curse me or consign me to Feminist Hell or whatever you want to do. But when you’re done, answer me this: why would a man get married under any other circumstances? I’m serious. What’s in it for him? I mean, marriage is a large sacrifice for a man. He gives up his right to sleep with a variety of partners, which is as basic an urge in men as having children is in women. He takes on responsibilities which will probably curtail both his work and his social life. If he doesn’t also acquire authority, gravitas, respect and, yes, mastery over his own home, what does he get? Companionship? Hey, stay single, dude, you’ll have a lot more money, and then you can buy companionship…” Klaven, it seems, would fit well into the Islamic world of grotesque and oppressive patriarchy.
