Anything You Can Do I Can Do Better?

Jeff Cooper writes in February, 2003:

"The NRA winter meeting was held at Corpus Christi, Texas, which is an interesting place - pretty far off to one side. Local historians tell us that this was one of the stop-offs of Cabeza de Vaca, who was put off from the Narvaez expedition in Florida and hiked all the way to Mexico City. This is a long hike, and in the early 16th century it was definitely fraught. It is one of the great adventure stories of all time, and should be more widely retold than it is.We learned at Corpus that while male hunting in the US is somewhat declining, female hunting is on a definite upswing. I guess the decline is simply due to the steady urbanization of our society. The countryside is an unfamiliar venue for most of our young men; but as to the girls, I see this as a manifestation of inverted machismo. ("Anything you can do I can do better.") Which is sort of silly, but nonetheless pervasive."

Nature itself teaches us that a vacuum will be filled. If men succumb to the pervasive preszence of anti-male thought, political correctness at all costs, and abdicate the position of provider, leader, and warrior, it may be expected that the only other sex on the planet will step in in ever-increasing numbers to fill the void.

Although any good reason why we would allow the superior sex abandon the special treatment we provide them and assume our roles evades me.

For shame.
