Thank you, Beren, for finally making my point clear: that Arnie's grotesque body-building figure is only a sign of "masculinity" if your worldview has been seriously altered by the mass media from whence his celebrity was tapped.
It's a sick, Hollywood "masculinity," and this sickness is paralleled in the often fake and Hollywoodish "left" that is still walking the halls of our national politics. Bernie Sanders and Liz Warren aren't "left," they're "super-left" (but it's all fake, like Schwartzenegger's sperm count).
