Attention All Men: Everything You Do Is Wrong No Matter What

Get a load of this headline:

You men are all too broke to be worthy of marriage!

But I thought we lived in the era of #FemaleEmpowerment, where all women are strong, independent and don’t need no man.

Also, I thought we lived in an Evil Patriarchy where men hoard all the money and are responsible for a nefarious Gender Pay Gap rendering all women broke and destitute?

What the hell?

Do women require financially stable men in order to live decent lives, or are men hoarding all the money and holding women down?

Should I be outraged about the (nonexistent) Gender Pay Gap, or about the fact that it’s hard out here for a gold-digger?

The answer is: both.

Just hate men unconditionally.

When men make more than women, they’re WRONG AND BAD.

When men make less than women, they’re also WRONG AND BAD.

You can’t win.

And that’s the point.

“MeN sHoUlDn’T MaKe LaWs aBoUt wOmEn’S BoDiEs”

You’ve probably seen this drivel all over social media.

It’s supposedly the conversation-ender in the abortion debate: “You’re a man so you don’t get to have an opinion.”

Obviously we’ll set aside the fact that the Alabama governor who signed the abortion ban is a woman, as well as the fact that there are many, many women out there who oppose abortion.

Let’s talk about what laws men should be allowed to have a say in:

Yes, what an oppressive Patriarchy this country is. *rolls eyes*

If men can’t have a say in abortion laws, then why should women have any say in child support laws? Men make the overwhelming majority of child support payments, so maybe we should only allow men to have a say in how those laws are written.

How does that work for ya, ladies?

Sounds like a fair trade to me.

Enough With These #Empowered (But Also Super #Oppressed) Feminists

When your entire political movement is based on treating gender and skin color as virtues in and of themselves, you will unavoidably get images like these Congressbroads cheering for themselves simply because they’re women–as if being a woman itself is something to be proud of, an achievement deserving recognition.

Observe Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez and her Pussyhat Caucus during the State of the Union. These hags sat around for two hours scowling with their arms folded while Trump talked about arresting human traffickers, putting drug cartels out of business and creating jobs for women and minorities, and the only time they actually stood and applauded was when Trump gave them a shout out for being elected to Congress despite being Super Oppressed as Women:

Look at us in our white outfits! We stand out! LOOK AT US! WE HAVE VAGINAS!

Their whole mantra is ORANGE MAN BAD, ORANGE MAN = PATRIARCHY, ORANGE MAN OPPRESS US so they sat stone-faced and angry as Trump recognized war heroes, astronauts and children with cancer, yet they couldn’t resist standing and cheering for themselves when Trump pointed out they are the least oppressed generation of women in United States history.

The underlying assumption, of course, is that Women Are #Oppressed and that they beat the odds in getting elected to Congress in our horrible, cruel Patriarchal society.

Forget the war heroes, cancer survivors and astronauts: these women are the real heroes.

Get the fuck outta here.

The very fact that this new Congress has the most women ever is proof that women in America have never been less oppressed.

And yet these clueless women really do believe they’ve Beaten The Odds. They may not know what the hell they’re talking about, but they’ve sure got a lot of strong opinions and #feelingz and they’re gonna make sure everyone hears them.

A universal rule of thumb in today’s America is that any group that is widely viewed to be #Oppressed is in fact the exact opposite of #Oppressed. In fact, that group is probably the one doing the oppressing.

We all know there’s a word for being hateful and prejudiced towards women–“misogyny”. But what’s the word for being hateful and prejudiced towards men? Nobody knows it.

Single mothers are glorified as #Strong and #Heroic in popular culture, but does anybody say a word about single fathers?

Where is all the Body Positivity for men? Where are the male plus-sized models? Why aren’t we told that overweight men with receding hairlines are BEAUTIFUL and STRONG? It’s only ugly women who we have to pretend are attractive.

Men in movies, television shows and commercials are generally portrayed as dumb oafs, brutes, criminals and dangerous overall. I just finally watched Mad Max: Fury Road (I know, it’s been out for a while) and while it was a pretty good movie, it ultimately boiled down to a simple narrative of “MEN BAD, WOMEN GOOD.” All the bad gangs were men, and the one good gang roaming the wasteland was all-female.

Gavin McInnes put together a nice compilation of commercials where the women are empowered and strong and the men are hapless, useless morons:

The examples are endless. This video (made by a woman, no less) is excellent:

I got more where that came from:

Here’s another video compilation specifically dedicated to examples of the “dumb dad” commercial archetype:

It’s almost as if men’s #feelingz don’t matter at all.

Who is automatically believed in sexual assault/misconduct allegations? The man, or the woman? The woman. When the legal justice system inherently gives you the benefit of the doubt, and is even willing to convict men based on false accusations made by you, this is the polar opposite of being oppressed. We’re just a few months removed from the pussyhats nearly stopping a Supreme Court nomination due to completely fabricated charges of sexual assault.

Men work almost all the dirty and dangerous jobs and are 10x more likely to be killed at work than women. You don’t ever hear anyone shrieking about closing the workplace death gap, do you?

And about that mythical “gender pay gap”: if you think about it for more than a second, it’s obviously nonsense. If women really did get paid 20% less (or whatever the exact number is) for the same work as men, then the gender pay gap would disappear almost immediately. My basement just flooded and we’re in the process of demo and rebuild–it’s an expensive affair. If you told me a team of women could do the same exact job for a price 20% lower than we’re paying, I would hire them immediately without a second thought. Please, point me in the direction of these cheap female laborers.

The “gender pay gap” is so absurd even the Bezos Washington Post’s resident “fact checker” debunked it.

Furthermore, women outnumber men 56% to 44% in college enrollment, and the number is only going higher. We know people with college degrees make more money, so this only further dismantles the myth of the “gender pay gap.”

Men are more than twice as likely to die of an opioid drug overdose.

85% of child support payments are made by men. Not only this, but of the over $14 billion in unpaid child support payments, women were more likely than men to be deadbeats. Men are more likely to be negatively affected by unpaid court-ordered child support payments.

Men are routinely screwed over royally in divorce court because the presumption is always that the man is the scumbag and the woman is the #Victim.

What more do these women want?

Enough with this nonsense. You’re not #Oppressed. In fact, you’re the very opposite of oppressed.

If anything, it’s men who regularly get the short end of the stick in America 2019.

The American Psychological Association: Traditional Masculinity is “Harmful” and We Now Treat it as a Mental Disorder

Rod Dreher writes “Manhood as Mental Disorder.” He quotes the American Psychological Association’s latest announcement:

“For the first time ever, APA is releasing guidelines to help psychologists work with men and boys.

At first blush, this may seem unnecessary. For decades, psychology focused on men (particularly white men), to the exclusion of all others. And men still dominate professionally and politically: As of 2018, 95.2 percent of chief operating officers at Fortune 500 companies were men. According to a 2017 analysis by Fortune, in 16 of the top companies, 80 percent of all high-ranking executives were male. Meanwhile, the 115th Congress, which began in 2017, was 81 percent male.

But something is amiss for men as well. Men commit 90 percent of homicides in the United States and represent 77 percent of homicide victims. They’re the demographic group most at risk of being victimized by violent crime. They are 3.5 times more likely than women to die by suicide, and their life expectancy is 4.9 years shorter than women’s. Boys are far more likely to be diagnosed with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder than girls, and they face harsher punishments in school—especially boys of color.

APA’s new Guidelines for Psychological Practice With Boys and Men strive to recognize and address these problems in boys and men while remaining sensitive to the field’s androcentric past. Thirteen years in the making, they draw on more than 40 years of research showing that traditional masculinity is psychologically harmful and that socializing boys to suppress their emotions causes damage that echoes both inwardly and outwardly.”

For the sake of fairness, it’s Dreher, not the APA, who asserts that the APA has declared traditional masculinity a “mental disorder.” But Dreher is simply reading between the lines. APA doesn’t come out and say it explicitly, but we all understand what they’re getting at.

The APA’s new official position as of January 2019 is that “traditional masculinity is psychologically harmful.”

Please take a moment and allow that to sink in.

The official position of America’s psychology field is that “traditional masculinity is psychologically harmful.”

Here’s more:

“Once psychologists began studying the experiences of women through a gender lens, it became increasingly clear that the study of men needed the same gender-aware approach, says Levant.

The main thrust of the subsequent research is that traditional masculinity—marked by stoicism, competitiveness, dominance and aggression—is, on the whole, harmful. Men socialized in this way are less likely to engage in healthy behaviors.”

“Traditional masculinity is, on the whole, harmful.”

Yes, in fact, focusing on only the potentially destructive aspects of masculinity would give one the impression that men are all ticking time bombs.

Women, of course, are perfect and have no negative aspects at all. They’re not conniving, passive-aggressive and emotionally unstable. Not at all!

Now the APA claims this is based on data, but let’s take a look at the prominent stat they cite: “Men commit 90% of homicides.”

Rod Dreher points out the glaring problem with this:

“To be fair, it’s not all PC codswallop, but given the social justice warrior jargon throughout, I suspect this is mostly about psychologizing the gelding of American males. I do not trust Ryon McDermott, PhD, to decide what is and is not healthy masculinity.

Me neither.

Plus, I don’t trust the spin. For example, this line: “Men commit 90 percent of homicides in the United States and represent 77 percent of homicide victims.”

True, but misleading. Homicides in the US are disproportionately committed by black menThe American Council on Science and Health reported in 2017:

The CDC confirms that, following an extended period of general decline, the overall homicide rate — as well as the homicide rate within each racial group — has increased from 2014 to 2015. In 2015, the homicide rates were (per 100,000 population): 20.9 for blacks (non-Hispanic), 4.9 for Hispanics, 2.6 for whites (non-Hispanic), 5.7 for all races.

Compared to the national average, the homicide rate was 54% lower for whites, 14% lower for Hispanics, and 267% higher for blacks. Put another way, the homicide rate among African-Americans is nearly quadruple that of the national average.

On the other hand, the white male suicide rate is six times higher for white men than for black men.

I bring this up only to point out that it’s not just “men” committing murders, but overwhelmingly it’s black men. This suggests that there is something particular going on within black male society. And the suicide rate being so unusually high among working-class, middle-aged white males tells us that something is going on with their own social psychology. That black and Hispanic working-class middle-aged men who suffer from the same hardships as whites are not killing themselves suggests that their social psychology has certain strengths that whites lack.

Of course, you’re never going to get this sort of nuance and highlighting of Inconvenient Truths from a thoroughly partisan organization like the APA.

They’ve got a message to push–“MEN BAD”–and they’re going to do it at all costs.

This is what I mean when I talk about “the Deep State” and the idea that the left is in control of our major institutions.

It’s everything.

Many Americans know the media is the Democrats’ propaganda organ. Some are even wise to the fact that the public education system is designed to indoctrinate students with leftism from an early age.

But how many Americans are aware that the American Psychological Association is a front for the Democratic Party? How many are aware that when they read the Supremely Authoritative pronouncements of the APA, and consult its Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) as the final authority on what is a mental disorder and what is not, that they are reading Democratic Party propaganda?

I’d guess the number is far fewer than the number of people who realize CNN and the New York Times are Democratic propaganda organs.

This is the larger problem. The left’s dominance of this country is so absolute, so far-reaching and deep-rooted that sometimes it’s overwhelming to take account of just how many institutions and organizations they have infested and corrupted.

We now have the APA, pretending to be a non-partisan authority, proclaiming that “traditional masculinity is, on the whole, harmful” and pretending it’s nothing but #Science and facts rather than political propaganda.

There most certainly is a War on Men and it is being waged against us by the most powerful organizations and institutions in America. They are all in lock-step unison in their mission to castrate us and turn us all into Democrat-voting, soyboy beta pussies who care most about being In Touch With Our Feeeelingz and weeping over our Mean, Nasty Border Patrol using tear gas on “migrants” trying to storm the border.

They want men to be as easily emotionally manipulated as women are, because that makes us more susceptible to Democratic Propaganda efforts.

They want us to be passive betas because assertive alpha males are the ones who stand up and fight their malevolent schemes to “fundamentally transform” this country.

Make no mistake about this: they are launching a full-scale assault on traditional masculinity because it is the single greatest impediment to Democrats obtaining power.

Oh, and if all this is not enough to emphasize what’s going on in this country, consider that in 2013 the APA released a 5th edition of its DSM and among the changes made were to reclassify transgenderism from a “disorder” to “gender dysphoria.” This was done in part to “remove the stigma” from transgenderism.

Not only did APA reclassify transgenderism as not a mental illness, but in the summer of 2018, the World Health Organization, another supposedly non-partisan international institution, announced that it would no longer be considering transgenderism as a mental illness.

So: traditional masculinity is a mental disorder, transgenderism is not. This is the direction we’re moving in–at least the direction our elite institutions are moving.

That’s the country we live in today. That’s America in 2019.

Feminists Are Ruining Dating

This is just sad to read, from an Atlantic article by Kate Julian entitled “Why Are Young People Having So Little Sex?“:

“I mentioned to several of the people I interviewed for this piece that I’d met my husband in an elevator, in 2001. …I was fascinated by the extent to which this prompted other women to sigh and say that they’d just love to meet someone that way. And yet quite a few of them suggested that if a random guy started talking to them in an elevator, they would be weirded out. ‘Creeper! Get away from me,’ one woman imagined thinking. ‘Anytime we’re in silence, we look at our phones,” explained her friend, nodding.’”

Larry Kummer of Fabius Maximus adds on to that:

“Surveys, such as this by YouGov, show that large numbers of women consider normal introductory behavior to be sexual harassment. Twenty-eight percent of young women (age 18 to 24) consider paying her a complement to be harassment; twenty-eight percent consider winking at her to be harassment. Forty-eight consider placing your hand on a woman’s lower back to be harassment. Young men deal with young women, aware that a large fraction are primed to see them as predators.”

So these women want their prince charming to come along and sweep them off their feet out of nowhere, and yet they’re more likely to tell that potential prince charming to get lost than they are to swoon over him.

I wrote last week about the epidemic of porn addiction and how it is killing real-life sex. That’s something men are inflicting upon themselves (and women, by definition).

But this, right here, is a scourge that women are inflicting on themselves–and men, of course. Women have become caught up in a mass panic over men, and wouldn’t you know it, these women are finding it ain’t so easy to meet decent guys these days.

There’s this widespread perception in society that Every Man Is A Potential Rapist and, as the quote above points out, men are aware of it, and so go to great lengths to avoid being a “creeper”–and often that means just avoiding women altogether.

A lot of this has to do with the widespread belief in the false stat that 1 in 5 women are raped. So many women believe this, and act accordingly. They think that at any moment they could be raped.

But do you really think 1 in 5 women have been forcibly raped by a stranger? That is such a rare thing to happen, and yet we’re led to believe that it happens all the time, everywhere. But it doesn’t. Just think of all the women you know in your life and it becomes pretty clear almost immediately that the stat is a lie.

Crime statistics show that the rape rate in the US is about 0.5 out of every 1,000 people. Additionally, only 26% of rapes are done by strangers. Most rapes are carried out by people the victim knows: 38% of rapes are done by friends/acquaintances, 26% by current or former intimate partners, and the remaining 7% are by relatives.

The odds of being raped by a stranger are very low, but perceived by women to be very, very high. This is by design: feminists created the rape culture myth to ruin relations between men and women. Because women who are in healthy, traditional relationships with decent alpha males are highly unlikely to be hysterical and shrieking in the streets with pussyhats on their heads. Happy, satisfied women are the death of feminism.

Feminists need women miserable, unsatisfied, and alone. That’s how they become feminists. The single, mad-at-the-world, 30+ catlady is their ideal target.

As for men, feminists prefer them to be cowed, submissive betas, and for two reasons: one, because they’ll roll over on demand, and two, because they ultimately cannot satisfy their women, both physically and emotionally.

Even if we grant that many rapes go unreported, the rate is still not anywhere near 1 in 5. Christina Hoff Sommers (aka “Based Mom”) cites reputable studies that put the actual college campus rape rate (where there is said to be a “rape culture crisis” disproportionate to society at large) at 1 in 40, not 1 in 5.

It’s a full-time job debunking all these leftist lies. If we had an honest media worth anything, they’d be doing it, but unfortunately the media today is the source of the lies and misinformation.
