    Post Wall Street Journal Editorial June 19, 2006


    I subscribe to the Wall Street Journal.

    I usually avoid reading the editorial pages (nutty right-wing blather for the most part).

    However, for some reason I read them today.....and what did I find? An editorial called "Unmanly Athletes" by Harvey Mansfield. It's not especially coherant, but in essence it's saying athletes who use steroids are "unmanly" because they are relying upon external agents to enhance themselves "like a woman" uses face creams and pops pills to keep from getting sick.

    Besides the obvious misogyny, this was a rather odd attack on the use of performance enhancing substances.

    LOL - all this probably coming a quite 'unmanly' person himself. Maybe he wrote it while sitting in the back row at the latest Polo match, watching with admiration all those 'unmanly' horses pumped full of EQ.

    Moron!

    Ahhhhhhh, did a little digging. He wrote a book on "manliness" and here is a rather unkind review of it:

    'Manliness,' by Harvey C. Mansfield - The New York Times Book Review - New York Times

    unmanly is still better than being a girlie-man.
