The real problem with masculinity

33

The Gilette controversy assumes that something is intrinsically wrong with men and that something must be done. The idea that nothing is wrong with men is in fact wrong as any man with half a brain knows simply by observing the men around him, particularly Millennials. Where Gilette gets it wrong is they reverse the fault. A commenter over at Dalrock pointed this out:

“At P&G, we believe that the requisite skills to succeed as leaders in 2018 and beyond include the ability to be empathetic and inclusive. Given the critical role men play in advancing women and in achieving gender equality

This goes along the lines of Dalrock’s law of feminism which is as follows:

Feminism is the assertion that men are evil and naturally want to harm women, followed by pleas to men to solve all of women’s problems.

That’s the Gilette commercial and the prog left attitude to men, and white men in particular, in a nutshell.

The real issue behind so-called toxic masculinity is summed up by a quote from a Twitter discussion on the issue that The Other McCain unearthed:

43% of boys are raised by single mothers
78% of teachers are female
So almost 50% of boys have 100% feminine influence while at home & an 8/10ish chance of 100% influence at school.
Toxic masculinity isn’t the problem. Lack of masculinity is.

Throw into the mix the complete convergence of traditional boys associations such as the Boy Scouts as well as the fact that youth sports now routinely mix boys and girls together in what were traditionally segregated teams and boys grow up in an environment where they can never escape women or girls.

Is it any wonder that they’re hooked on video games? Perhaps that is the reason for the fact that video games were the backbone of the first real push back in 40 years against the prog left. Video games were where it all started. If we hadn’t had #GamerGate we wouldn’t be where we are now.

That’s because video games were the last refuge for boys and when women began to move into that sphere it became boys’ Stalingrad and they were the Russians. After video games they had nowhere else to go.

I still play video games on occasion, particularly MMOs. I just dabble now as they are too time consuming but what I have noticed is that the groups in the games, which are mostly composed of young men, are extremely hostile to the idea of letting women into their groups. This is a complete turnaround from ten years ago.

But back to the stats listed above. If there is a problem with men then women caused it. Actually men caused it first by voluntarily ceding ground to women. Weak men create hard times and all that. I hate the Gilette commercial but yet at the same time I really love it because this sort of mass exposure goes a very long way to waking up the normies. Hopefully we are not far off from a point where the great re-correction is made.

    The only thing wrong with some men is that they believe they have a right to be above other men. HIERARCHY is wrong.

    Real men treat other men as equals. Real men don’t grab more land that they need and allow the other men to own an equal slice.

    Real men refuse to slave and don’t enslave others. Real men have one woman and don’t take the women of others.

    Real men hate bosses and hate to be bosses. Real men make no more than 2 children, they don’t overpopulate the world, ensuring that there is enough, fertile land for the others.

    Real men stand up to dictators and refuse to feed leeches.

    Real men take charge in their family, treat their wife and children with respect, but don’t spoil them.

    Now let’s talk about real women…

    • Mattys Modern Life

      Real men have as many children as possible, White men need to be real men and have as many children as possible.

      Overpopulation? Pfft, if that’s true then the other races can go because we ain’t going anywhere.

      • Bumpstock

        Have as many as possible? How many is possible whilst trying to maintain the standard of living expected by said wife and kids, whilst trying to pay off impossible mortgages? Plus ‘modern wymyn’ have got to have time for their careers and have even less time to be building a home and family, at least properly. I’m all for women staying home where they belong but to pay off any house, you basically need two incomes.

        This is part of the mechanism of our replacement, we just can’t afford to have more than one or two so (((they))) import the brown models. They are from shithole countries where they have ten kids on nothing, they get here on welfare and think they have won the lottery, have even more.

        • Jamie Blank

          Modern wymyn who have careers are barren. This is why 10 kids for others is possible. It makes up for the early deaths, poofters, dead branches, etc, etc.

          • Bumpstock

            I’m all for it, don’t get me wrong. So long as they are raised by the right people.

          Muslim family have eleven children (Australia)

          Breadwinner is the Fertile daughter

          This story is from a doctor in Melbourne…

          So, where do you think it will all end, OR, when do you think

          our governments will wake up !!!???

          The new breadwinners in Australia:

          Here is how a doctor explains it:

          A woman in her late 20’s came to the hospital today with her

          8th pregnancy.

          She said to me “My mum told me that I am the breadwinner for the family.”

          I asked her to explain.

          She said that she can make babies and babies get money from the

          Government for the family.

          It goes like this:

          The Grandma calls the Department of child services and

          Centrelink, and states that the unemployed daughter is not

          capable of caring for all of her kids. And they agree, then

          tells her the children will need to go into foster care.

          The Grandma then volunteers to be the foster parent, and

          receives a cheque for $400 per child each month.

          Total yearly income $72000pa and soon to be more when

          the 8th one is born, tax-free and nobody has to go to work!

          In fact, they get more if there is no husband/father/man in

          the home! The brother does not count.

          Not to mention free dental treatment, free housing,

          free school dinners, free tuition fees at college or Uni,

          free eye care and glasses, free prescriptions and various

          other benefits…

          Total value of all benefits combined probably approaching

          $120,000 per annum.

          That’s about my salary as a senior consultant with years of

          experience and surgical skills in a Melbourne teaching hospital.

          Indeed, Grandma was correct that her fertile daughter is

          the “breadwinner” for the family

          This is how the politicians spend our taxes.

          When this generous programme was invented in the ’60s,

          the Great Society architects forgot to craft an end date,

          and now we are hopelessly over run with people who vote only

          for those who will continue to keep them on the dole…..

          No wonder our country is broke!

          Worse, our Muslim brothers have been paying attention, and

          by mandating that each Muslim family have eleven children.

          They will soon replace the voting bloc above and can be

          running this country in around 12 years.

          Are we alarmed yet, is anybody listening?

          Please know I am not racist nor am I against Immigration, I

          just worry where this uncontrolled sort of immigration is

          going to take this wonderful country. There must be limits

          and controls in place or in around 12 years or less we will

          be going to midday prayers at the local mosque.

          That’s a simple fact of life my friends. They clearly

          intend to force that upon us.

          Sincerely,

          Sebastian J. Ciancino – Obstetrician,

          Melbourne Vic

          Don’t forget to pay your taxes!!

          There are a lot of “breadwinners” depending on you!

          HELLO!!! Well? Is anybody listening

      • Yol Mak

        Wrong Matty. Competing like wild animals will lead to the same consequences wild animals experience…

        Instead we need to sterilise every woman on this planet right after the birth of her 2nd child. And those countries who refuse to cooperate need to be completely isolated and NONE of their surplus offspring allowed to leave. Zero.

        • Jamie Blank

          That sounds like a socialist utopia. You sound like a lefty.

          • Yol Mak

            No. Every capitalist dairy farmer in Australia thinks the same way or else his business would suffer…

            He calculates how much land he has and how many cows his land can sustain. If he was really stupid and bred more cows than his land can sustain, then his cows would starve, stop producing milk, fight each other for food and eventually die…

            Nothing to do with socialism/communism. It’s all a matter of INTELLIGENCE. And I’m neither left nor right.

            This planet cannot grow, so we need to control the numbers of people, living on the planet or we are all going to starve and kill each other for land and food one day, just like wild animals do all the time…

            We are already living in a globalised world. We cannot go back. So we need a global 2 child policy AND enforce it, to ensure that everyone gets a fair share of fertile land.

          • Jamie Blank

            Not everyone has kids. Some people are gay. Some people die before reproduction.

            Those three things blow your brave new socialist utopian world out of the water.

        Agree, Matty. Real men have wives who’ll give them “a quiver full of sons” and daughters “tenderly carried”. Whites desperately need to breed.

    Let’s not be naive, Gilette seeks to create controversy for free publicity, the same product is sold at a higher price to the female consumer, this issue was designed to create controversy and publicity.

    All my children were involved in ballet, tap and jazz from the age of five, singing in choirs both at our local Church and at our city Cathedral, playing several musical instruments, and mainly raised by me, their mother. Two of them are my sons: kind, wonderful, loving, generous and strong men …the other is my daughter, a woman…she too is kind, wonderful, loving, generous and strong. My sons are masculine men, and my daughter is a feminine woman.

    Their father abdicated his responsibility because he is a selfish, self-centred, egotistical and insecure sadist.
    I raised them with love and respect.

    • Bumpstock

      Nice story good on you. Yes, a lot of men are like that, but so are a lot of women.

      • Bucky Redux

        Yes, there are always 2 sides to every relationship story.
        Too often, the female version only, is held as gospel truth.

    • Maryanne

      It can’t be disputed that the behaviour of white women has been a major factor in the decline of the West.

      After their initial success with race, the cultural marxists picked the next weakest target: women.

      Note they didn’t pick homosexuals or trannies. Nor after race did they choose open borders. The normies weren’t ready for that either. But they’re working on it via stupid Christians (disclaimer: I am one, but not a stupid one).

      No, they picked women, after all women are 50% of the population. Why women were the weakest target other people can discuss. But they were, and I have my own politically incorrect thoughts.

      Actually the cultural marxists’ target was not women – but mothers.

      From Whitlam on, feminists in the bureaucracies changed Australia by deliberately denigrating and financially disadvantaging stay-at-home mothers via government policies. The male breadwinner model in a breeding couple became politically incorrect. Despite Angela Shannahan’s tireless advocacy over decades, such families are today financially penalized by the tax/welfare system.

      Today, pussy-whipped governments all agree that infants, toddlers and pre-schoolers are best “cared for” by low-paid workers rather than their mothers. Maternal love doesn’t get a look in. It’s despised.

      How evil is it that only the wives of high income males, or women with high-paying careers can opt to stay at home to raise their own children? And has anybody noticed that Sweden has become a basket-case under feminist governments?

      Sadly, after a couple of generations of children exposed to brainwashed teachers scraped from the bottom of the barrel of DipEds, most young Australian men and women now agree that Western women have been oppressed by “the patriarchy” for millennia. They agree because they know nothing of history, let alone human biology.

      The truth is that in the West – and probably in all societies – oppression comes with class – not sex, race let alone gender.

    • entropy

      The obvious question being: why did you have three children to a selfish, egotistical, insecure sadist?

      But you didn’t, did you. I’ll go out on a limb here. You had those children to a normal guy and things didn’t work out. Judging by your lack of perspective, it was mostly your fault, so you characterise him as evil to avoid having to take any responsibility for your own actions, and drove him away so the kids wouldn’t find out.

      You describe your ballet-dancing, choir-singing sons with the same adjectives you use for your daughter yet you think they’re masculine because you’re not qualified to judge.

      Your sons will carry the burden of your bad decisions. You raised them to be kind and generous but clearly those aren’t traits you yourself look for in a partner. Stop blaming men for everything and own up to your own failures.

    • Presumably you drove their father away. But will never admit it.

      In a few short paragraphs you’ve already indicated you’re a control freak, like most women. Control, control, control.

      The first lie women tell is to their men, the second is to their children. But they never lie to themselves because even they won’t buy that BS.

      • Luisa Vanco

        Please, oh knowledgeable one, how would I have done that, and when? Between his smashing my head on the floor whilst holding me by my ankles, in front of the children, do you suppose?
        What about when chasing me through the house yelling and screaming obscenities at me whilst they would cower in fear together?
        How about at the dinner table when he would tell his eldest son (aged all of 12 years), that he was a useless human being and would never amount to anything? Does that sound like a man I “presumably drove away”?
        What about when my husband decided that just because I’m smaller than he is, throwing my against wall and windows is great fun. How”s that for control, control, control. Hey? Agree? I must have driven him away? No?
        What about when he raped me during my pregnancy with my youngest son, and caused me medical problems that were almost life-threatening; for both me and my, as yet, unborn son but not him of course. Because he’s such a big man, of course.
        I could go on and on and on and on and on and on…but perhaps, my now you get my drift? No?
        My children lived in fear …of their very own father. An academically-educated man. A professional man. A medical man. A doctor.
        I even told him that he could do anything he wanted to me, but not in front of the children. I would not allow him to behave like such an animal in front of his children. Besides, I feared him too.
        No, Mr Smarty-pants, Absurdiness Brown, do tell me something you know about my life that I don’t.
        Yes, I did ask him to leave, but only because the situation in our home was becoming horrendous.
        Of course, not soon after he left, he shagged up with one of our friends. Evidently, the poor darling felt very traumatised.
        Now, because you are obviously such an expert, please educate me as to what exactly I was a control freak about? You know. Control, control, control? I am eager to learn.

        • “An academically-educated man. A professional man. A medical man. A doctor.”

          If I were ever likely to believe anything that you said (which I’m not, being an adult) this would definitely end it.

          Took over a week to compose the answer, I see. Probably with a lot of help.

          • Luisa Vanco

            Believing me or not does not change the truth.
            Yes, he is a doctor; a general practitioner, unless he is now retired.
            As for the length of time it took me to reply, I do have a life.
            Frankly, I thought you so ignorant, I wasn’t going to bother. Believing that educated men cannot be sadistic, amoral and insecure, is very stupid.

      They still used the very dated photoshopped version with her “articles” to try to make her look remotely feminine.

      Isn’t it odd that real women are feminine all their lives but feminists aren’t passable once they leave their teens?

    If women stopped ruining everything they touched, men would be more receptive to letting them in.

    Gamers saw this firsthand, with women wanting to control a hobby they largely hate and the cucked gaming media capitulating at every turn.

    Women claimed equality to get equal rights, then claimed discrimination is the reason equal rights didn’t lead to equal performance, and now champion socialism to get the equal outcomes they don’t want to work for and earn on merit.
