LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Kevin Sorbo wants to "make Hollywood manly again" as he lashed out at current actors who project an androgynous personality in an op-ed.

Pointing fingers at stars like Timothée Chalamet, the ‘Hercules: The Legendary Journeys’ actor wrote for Fox News that he “often wears clothes that, well… let’s just say your grandfather wouldn’t have been caught dead dressed.”

Sorbo also mocked Billy Porter by saying, “Society today seriously misunderstands masculinity. On the one hand, we love to normalize androgynous, Billy Porter-type men who sport skirts and poofy dresses.”

Kevin Sorbo asserts ‘society today seriously misunderstands masculinity’

The 65-year-old producer noted in his essay, “Does Hollywood fear good men? Not necessarily big, bulky men with daunting physiques – those aren’t in too short supply on today’s big screen. Good men. Admirable men. Men, we’d want our sons to emulate and daughters to date.”

He mentioned, “Society today seriously misunderstands masculinity,” before continuing, “In order to go out and conquer the world, men must first conquer themselves. 

“Sadly, men today have often instead been conquered. We’ve been subdued by alcohol, drugs, video games, porn and other entertainment.”

Kevin Sorbo takes aim at feminists

Sorbo also blasted feminists in his essay as he stated, “It doesn’t really matter what end of the masculinity spectrum you fall on; if you’re a victim to your own base desires, the feminist culture has won.”

“You’re exactly the kind of wussy man they (think they) want you to be,” he said.

The ‘Xena: Warrior Princess’ star also went on to advise what kind of men America needs.

He shared, “The call of duty to today’s man is to rise above what society and the media say he is doomed to be, becoming instead the servant leader his family and community so desperately require.”

“And that’s exactly the kind of man Hollywood refuses to portray,” he said.

Sorbo added, “Let’s make Hollywood manly again. It’s time for the world’s entertainment capital to reintroduce good men: men who love their wives and children, protect them, fight for what’s right, and speak up for the powerless.”
