How to use emasculate in a sentence?

  1. Steve Schmidt:

    They made a horrendous miscalculation in not understanding the intent of the low-energy attack, which was designed to emasculate Bush, to make him look weak, defining him as weak denied him the ability to make the argument that by resume, competence and experience he was the most fit to command.

  2. Gina Ciarcia:

Boys long to have something to fight for and defend, but are now told that this instinct is toxic. There are still dragons to slay, and we fail to communicate that to our boys.
