Get grumpy, old man.

The happiness and very life of your daughters, or sons, probably depends on it, according to Charlotte Allen. NB; language, cartoon of people in singles bar.

Now she doesn't come out and say it--her 12 page piece more or less only documents how many promiscuous (and predatory) men use social darwinism to justify their behavior--but the reality is that our children's defense against the "meat market" mentality appears, if the testimony of the "male sluts" quoted in the article is indicative, to be the willingness of parents to actually raise their children. Overwhelmingly, the "pick up artist" is one who didn't have a decent relationship with his dad. His victim--the same.

So polish and clean the old shotgun, and get ready to tell the kid with the jeans hanging halfway off his rear end to get off your porch until he's wearing something that fits and has his shirt tucked in. Be a grumpy old man, and your kids will be the better for it.

Heh. Reminds me of the "Application to Date My Daughter" piece I reproduced on my blog back in '05:

For a more current and practical illustration, go to our friend Gino's post and especially the comment section.

There are 40-some comments there and the last half of them (several by me) illustrate the difference parents can make in their children's thinking, behavior and lives.
