It’s Time for the Manosphere to Mend Bridges with the MHRM

If you ask most denizens of the Manosphere, they’ll describe AVfM as nothing more than “Feminism for men” (meanwhile, the MHRM would probably describe the Manosphere as “Nothing but a bunch of guys trying to get laid”). These are both gross mischaracterizations.

Modern Cynicism & The Death of Hope

Hope is frightening; it implies the potential for failure. Hope is demanding; it provides an objective to work towards. Hope is humbling; it makes you realize that your own weaknesses are your worst enemy. Living without Hope leads to failure, but it’s a comforting sort of failure. It’s the root of all addiction.

New Material Month

Realize that while most of which feminism and socialism advocates is outlandishly stupid, and certainly deserves a response, the truth is their numbers and stupidity are staggering and incomprehensible.  This has resulted in a limitless number of stupid ideas and stupid thoughts flooding the idea marketplace.  And while your visceral reaction may be to shoot each and everyone of them down, I fear all it is doing is driving traffic to otherwise unremarkable and irrelevant feminists.  Additionally, as you know, I believe the situation in America is unsalvagable, so why bother wasting your time rushing from fire to fire to...

The Anti-Narrative of Radicalism

“It is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you will not be imperilled in a hundred battles…” ~Sun Tzu Le Pandemonium by John Martin, 1841. Feminists, Socialists, Race-Baiters, Multiculturalists, Environmentalists, and Relativists – the enemies of civilization are endless.  Their policies are schizophrenic, each group is constantly at odds with one-another, and even within their own camps intractable divisions exist: Environmentalists can’t decide whether they’re for or against nuclear power, Multiculturalists demand diversity while promoting mono-cultural Sharia Law, and Feminists are torn on whether all sex is rape, or if pornography is liberating.  The degenerates warble...

An Analysis of The Feminine Mystique, Chapter 2

Read my review of Chapter 1 here; the ongoing discussion is at Sunshine Mary’s site. Right off the bat, Friedan inundates us with more stories of women who are all “Relieved to find out I wasn’t the only one!” This is followed up by examples of “impossible ideals” being sold to women in advertising. “I’m living the same life as the TV people – why aren’t I haaaaappppyyyy?” On the surface this seems very similar to the Genesis of the Manosphere, with one major difference: the Manosphere developed because we were lied to; Friedan’s “Problem with no name” is a...

An Analysis of The Feminine Mystique, Chapter 1

Introduction The problem lay buried, unspoken, for many years in the minds of American women. It was a strange stirring, a sense of dissatisfaction, a yearning that women suffered in the middle of the 20th century in the United States. Each suburban wife struggled with it alone. As she made the beds, shopped for groceries, matched slipcover material, ate peanut butter sandwiches with her children, chauffeured Cub Scouts and Brownies, lay beside her husband at night—she was afraid to ask even of herself the silent question—‘Is this all? The ever lovely Sunshine Mary has organized a reading and discussion of...

Game Versus the Reactosphere

One of my biggest pet-peeves is seeing people argue at cross-purposes, and I think that’s precisely what’s going on with this debate between the Neoreactionaries and the Game bloggers: both sides are arguing against a caricature, due to the fact that – despite using the same terminology – they’re both using the terms with subtly different nuances, thus leading to an apparent disagreement, where no major disagreement actually exists. An example of that confused terminology is the conflation of PUA with Gamer. On the surface they’re very similar.  They both write about picking up women, they both use words like...

Mating Disruption: The Decline of the West

One of the curious contradictions you’ll find in Atheistkult is how they embrace a purely Materialist view of reality (declaring the Mind to be nothing but the brain, a clockwork, deterministic automaton), while simultaneously rejecting evolution (of the different sub-types of human) as well as evolutionary psychology: they declare that all humans are free, rational beings (minus the soul part) whom can make any decision they want, and that Game is an imaginary security blanket: in no way are the aggregate behaviours of men and women conforming to some sort of pattern. Humans might be robots – but they’re certainly...
