I might be a raging homo, but I still innately understand the male need to conquer, crush and win. Men need to express that dark, powerful part of themselves, or it can abruptly overflow. If it is suppressed, derided and ridiculed, it can show up without warning and with horrible consequences.
That’s why I’m so distressed that heterosexual men are being told, constantly, by the media and even in schools, that what they are is bad. This, I submit, is at least in part what’s driving the recent spate of shootings.
The media trash-talks everything men love: guns, booze, boisterousness, drugs, sex and video games. Economic pressures are relentlessly stripping away male spaces like the traditional pub, where blokes can drink and bond. Social pressures are opening up male-only golf and social clubs to women, destroying what made them precious and essential.
The breakdown of the nuclear family is a euphemistic phrase used to describe a more troubling picture: there are more absent fathers now and vanishingly few positive male role models for young men to admire and emulate. This is often fuelled, or at least endorsed, by wrongheaded progressives who want to tear down supposedly patriarchal institutions.
But it is those patriarchal institutions, if you like, that for centuries provided the sort of structure, order and role models that young men need.
Masculinity isn’t fragile, as a spiteful, sociopathic feminist Twitter hashtag recently claimed. But — and here’s where some man-hating feminists almost get it right — it is powerful, and exciting, and it does have a flip-side if not properly respected. At its best, male competitiveness is the driving force behind most of society’s progress. We would be nowhere without the patriarchy, from the internet and space travel to the road under your feet and the roof on your house. The same thing that drives mass shooters inspires courage, too.
That doesn’t mean masculinity is “toxic.” What’s toxic is society’s attitudes towards men. Masculinity only becomes “toxic” when it is beaten down and suppressed and when men are told that what and who they are is defective. It becomes toxic when young boys are drugged in school because they don’t conform to feminine standards of behaviour.
What’s worse is that the media ridicules, criticises, punishes and demonises masculinity, then uses the product of its own hatred to justify more man-hating, in a Kafkaesque cycle of progressive insanity that has only one, inevitable consequence: more innocent dead people.
Progressives don’t see the irony in going after “straight white men.” But they are hypocritical bigots, hounding people for gender, skin colour and sexuality and saying that essential male characteristics are wrong. Men must be allowed to compete. To fight. To shoot things. Today’s man-punishing, feminised culture is creating killers by suppressing these urges. We have to stop it.
sour grapes said:What is ironic and interesting is that Lauren Southern - a young blond girl - and Milo Yiannopoulos - a young gay - are doing some of the most upfront and radical anti feminist work.
Stay said:I like him. Hating gay marriage is one thing having a genuine hatred for gay people is another and there's probably a reason it's producing such a powerful reaction within you e.g. abused by a male as a child, suppressed desires and so on.
Most obsessive homophobe I knew growing up turned out to have a massive shemale fetish.
Speculation said:I think Milo's great.
He's a conservative journalist, but is pro-gamergate, pro-MRA, anti-feminist and I think even anti-gay marriage (although how much that last one is real or staged who knows.)
He largely spends his time trolling leftists, feminists and Social Justice Warriors and is untouchable due to the native immunity afforded to him by his sexuality. He rates higher in 'victim status' than anyone who would critique him, so they can't attack him without being accused of oppressing minorities.
Jack Donovan is another strong ally with his book on masculinity and tribalism 'The Way of Men'. Guy is masculine as all hell and doesn't flag wave his sexuality one bit.
To be honest I don't get the hate against all gays when some of them are such great allies. I understand the subversion of children and the agenda to destroy the nuclear family are issues, but I don't think all gays pose a threat.
