Anyone read his book? Number five at Amazon and holding steady. I assumed from the cover and blurb that it was some sort of hipster pomo snark attack on traditional boys’ behavior, but no: he’s quite serious, and even more serious about the harm he thinks is being done by frustrating boys’ risk-taking instincts. It’s a breezy 25 minutes, although our three leftist readers may want to skip it since the conversation depends on the assumption that gender identity isn’t perfectly malleable and that there are, in fact, honest to goodness biologically based differences in the sexes’ behavior. The military angle comes at 21:50, in case you’re pressed for time.
