James Cameron, the storied director of such films as “Alien”, “Titanic”, and “Avatar” voiced his opposition to testosterone last week in an interview with the Hollywood Reporter.
While promoting his most recent film, “Avatar: The Way of the Water”, Cameron attributed many of his early-career missteps on testosterone:
“On Titanic and the first Avatar, Cameron clashed with Fox execs over budgets and the films’ potential to earn them back. But his relationship with Disney has, so far, been a smooth one.”
“’A lot of things I did earlier, I wouldn’t do — career-wise and just risks that you take as a wild, testosterone-poisoned young man. I always think of [testosterone] as a toxin that you have to slowly work out of your system.’” Cameron said.
These are absurd comments. Clashing with your executives is not the fault of testosterone. It is a problem of disposition and character. Testosterone, channeled rightly, produces both excellence of disposition and virtue of character.
But Cameron is a radical leftist (he has produced content for the DNC), and the radical left has long blamed many of the ills of modern society on “toxic masculinity.” That is in keeping with their war on the family and familial roles — a war the American people by and large are not behind.
Thanks to the Left, “Toxic Masculinity” is a ubiquitous concept in today’s world. Indeed, one could not attend a reasonably sized university without being confronted with the notion at some point. That even applies to contexts where a mention of the idea was totally out of place.
It is no doubt true that men, like women, have their flaws. Nonetheless, masculinity, in and of itself, is no more toxic than femininity. The radical left is truly prolific when it comes to its assault on manhood. Attacking “testosterone” — a hormone that allows men to be the protectors and innovators they were designed to be — is as senseless as fighting windmills. Masculinity is an imaginary enemy.
Truly, it is not the toxicity of masculinity that is a challenge in today’s world. Instead, the real problem is in masculinity’s absence and perversion. James Cameron and the radical supporters of the Democrat Party ought to wake up and see the real enemy — the Democrat agenda, which is tearing our nation into pieces.
