@ Frost

Is this like that time you got engaged?

If you cannot see this show through the cultural filter of a man, then you are using FeministBlinders to give this crap undeserved praise.

Men no longer do those things because females have taken them over. In general if men see women doing something they don’t view it as worth doing in a competitive fashion. Hence why we play video games that repel chicks. And glee is gay.

I might not have minded the show except that I hate that they use studio recording/enhancement for their singing every single time they sing.

It breaks my suspension of disbelief every time they start to sing… makes it impossible to sit down and enjoy the fiction.

A good point. Why can’t a man both kill a wild animal, and cook it up as a chef would, knowing what herbs / sauces to use to complement the game, etc?

Hemingway may have been an arch-liberal, but he was a real man, through and through.

I don’t care for sports. I don’t watch them. And I am straight!

While I have lost interest in the show recently, I have to say you make a very solid argument. It is good to see straight male characters given permission to be artsy, and to enjoy it, and even derive a DHV from it.

I agree about the arts, but I still can’t take GLEE. Too much Freddie Mercury, not enough Robert Plant. There’s a masculine way to sing and dance and there’s the GLEE way.
