The new Superman wants you to know he’s a sensitive girlieman type of “guy.”
Recently, I saw a commercial for annoying TV reality show, “The Bachelorette,” which advertised that the show will feature a lot of “man tears.” Like “man purse,” “mannie,” “man girdle,” and “mantyhose,” it’s just more of the feminization and chickification of America’s–and the Western World’s men–encouraging men to adopt the clothing, emotions, behavior, and characteristics of women. And, now, Superman is a vessel for this sad development.
Henry Cavill, the actor who plays “Man of Steel,” wants you to know he enjoys crying . . . a lot. Cavill gave several interviews saying he almost cried three times in the first half hour when he watched the new Superman movie in which he stars. (He also said he cried to his mom repeatedly while away at boarding school.) And in the June 24th issue of People magazine, Cavill says:
I’m a giant softie. I’m very open about crying. I cried when I saw “Stand Up Guys!”
Really? “Stand Up Guys” (read my review) was about aging mobsters. It’s not that sad. Hmmm . . . Perhaps we should start calling him Superchick.
By the way, Cavill is dating Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighter Gina Carano, who is far more masculine (in looks and strength) than he is, and she can probably beat him up. You know who the man is in that relationship, and it ain’t Superman.
Man up, Super”man.”
