NEW CASTLE —
Editor, The News:
My wife and I were walking in a mall.
As we approached a store entrance, we were greeted by two women. One yelled, “Would you like to buy a pink ribbon to fight breast cancer?” I said I would if I could buy a ribbon to fight prostate cancer.
Although more men contract prostate cancer than women contract breast cancer, we are surrounded by pink ribbons. Professional football players display pink on uniforms, although many of them will be attacked by prostate cancer and not breast cancer.
Breast cancer advocates even have a month, October, to attempt to surround us in pink.
Many organizations and hospitals offer free breast cancer screenings, but men have to pay for prostate screenings. The federal government gives millions to family planning organizations that offer free care and exams to women but not men.
The attack on boys is more virulent. Progressives are trying to “wussify” our boys. They cannot accept the fact that boys have different play choices than girls.
They want to put bubble wrap around their bodies so they don’t get the scratches and bumps that are part of growing up as a boy. The millions of men who stormed the beaches in the Pacific and on D-Day did not acquire their toughness playing with dolls, nor did the men who fought in Korea, Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan.
We live in a sex-and-violence-drenched society. Our entertainment industry attacks our moral sensibilities. We are afraid to discipline students in schools and fool ourselves by saying educational results will improve if we spend more money. Parochial schools prove that concept is wrong.
Men want the same programs that are offered women, even though about a million men will not be able to take advantage, because they perished defending this country.
