I don't admire stength. I don't think Jesus would approve of doing so, so I don't.
Even so I disagree completely with that glennsacks over the supposedly weak modern movie characters compared to the Gary Cooper types of the past. Some cowboy who rescues a damsel in distress isn't stong, he's a Don Juan focusing entirely on the female, engaging in weak-minded hysterical violence and lacking the empathy (genius, Weininger would call it) to put himself in the place of the men he's wanting to kill.
Romcoms are shit and symptomatic of widespread mental illness, but cowboy films are gnerally just as bad, with the added element of hysterical, pant-wetting violent psychopathologies.
