“You can be a man, but do it in the garage or basement.”
Where I live, in Wyoming, and in most of the American West, the entire region has always been a Man Cave, not only for invaders, but for the Warrior society natives.
Sadly, manly expression for some domestic males is confined to household “fixit” projects, like maintenance of the house, appliances and plumbing. Hence “Homo habilis” the Handy Man (thought to be extinct).
The garage however, can be a secret passage leading to the hunt for trophies of the Anthropocene: Note the common association of vehicles with “Paleolithic Goddess” imagery.
Of course, the man cave never really “went away.” Extravagant animal trophy rooms, and indeed, entire houses and museums, are being built to house dead animals procured in both legal and illegal hunts. Our ancestors may have hunted some large animals to extinction, but in a world in which most food is grown by man, and animal resources are controlled by laws and policies to conserve and provide for sustainable hunting, must we pursue slaughter?
Can men be “neutered” and remain men? That’s a rhetorical question.
