Interestingly, "hornet's nest" is defined at Merriam-Webster Online, so that may
be part of the issue.
Not meaning to be snarky here. I just know that the people who would have
checked the spelling would've merely gone to the dictionary.
As for whether it's a threat to American masculinity I can't say, except that
the one time I stepped on a hornets' nest, I screamed like a little girl when
they started stinging me. :)
