Reclaiming Male Power in the Viagra Age

by Henry Makow Ph.D. — (slightly revised from Oct 24, 2001)

You’ve heard of the “Stone Age,” the “Iron Age” and the “Information Age.” This is the “Viagra Age” — the era of male impotence. Television commercials say that 1/3 of all men suffer from “erectile deficiency” attributed to high blood pressure, prostate cancer, or diabetes.
I suspect that the real culprit often is feminism. Women should empower men but for a long time they have been doing the opposite. Instead of taking the little blue pill, men need to reclaim their masculine power.
In the workplace, a man can accept leadership from a competent woman. But in the intimate sphere, a man who takes orders from a woman is not a man, and usually can’t perform like one. He sees his mother and feels like a child again.
Power is synonymous with masculine identity. Impotent literally means “powerless.” We would never say a woman is “impotent.” Rather, she is “infertile” or “frigid” reflecting her passive or receptive role.
A man cannot love if he does not have power. He exercises his power on behalf of his wife and family. Women take away male power and wonder why they aren’t loved.
