What to do with a fashion-obsessed sissy boy? Nicolosi recommended corrective nudging toward macho recklessness.

As it becomes entrenched, we may see more (non-homophobic) justifications for why anything other than hyper-masculinity and hyper-femininity is un-Christian, and returns to Puritan arguments against art.
