At this rate, i’ll never get around to my other posts.. oh well.
“Ahhh yes! I was wondering what would break first? Your spirit.. or your body?”
Yesterday’s post by me created somewhat of a row, both externally and internally. It goes to the nature of the duality of my own internal conflict, and that of societies as well. And the question everyone has to ask is which will give out first and what the consequences of it will be when one side decides to blink.
I made the post discussing the woman commanding a man to throw himself into the proverbial pyre and do his duty, a duty she would not, in effect proving male disposability and an entitlement by females from the old days. Women asking men for the trappings of Patriarchal oppression all the while demanding equality.
Yohami asked a very simple question and made a very logical conclusion. Are we to expect the woman to do what is not in her nature? Are we expecting men to stop being courageous, fearless, leaders, action takers, life savers by denying their nature.. their masculine nature as biologically prescribed through evolution? If so then how are we any different from Feminists?
He’s got a point. And a very fucking good one. Our whole issue here is about all the ills feminism has wrought on our society, by making women walking away from their part of the great contract and ceasing to behave like women and adopting a masculine frame. We tend to think of fighting back in terms of ‘you do this, i do that’ instead of ‘you do this, i’ll continue doing nothing different and pretend you don’t exist.’
Yohami is a teacher of masculinity to those who will listne. He’s not here to tow the line of men walking away from masculinity. He wants men to reoccupy the frame, forcefully. He wants men to reclaim their biological programming and behave like men. So he is very well correct when he asks ‘Complaining about an equality that cannot be done makes you a feminist, doesnt it?”Asking men to behave in a manner other than the masculine manner is exactly what feminism tells women.. to behave in a manner other than the feminine.
For a man to feel like a man, a masculine man, he needs to do masculine things. It’s that simple. He needs to lead, he needs to act, he needs to utilize what he’s naturally got to be productive. He wants to be looked up to. He wants to be respected. He wants to be attractive to women (unless he’s gay). These things will not be achieved by rejecting masculine behavior.
I respect all this and appreciate it. I hold nothing but the highest respect for Yohami and firmly agree with his point of view.
As i’ve stated prior, i am a man between two worlds.. one who waxes nostalgic about a world i wanted, loved, cared for a wanted to be a part of. I am also a man who sits on the roof of his apartment gleefully watching a world pull itself apart waiting for the collapse because i see this western society as irredeemable and not worth the effort to save. I am for all intents and purposes, enjoying the decline.
Which is why i also subscribe to men like Barbarossa who say that the grand old bargain is gone. When women stop behaving like women but still expect men to act like men.. then what you get is a society that expects all the benefits of male disposability and benefits of men behaving like men and giving nothing back in return. It is the equivalent of an AFC being LJBF’d on a macro scale. Behaving like a man, dying like a man, and still being spit on, used and abused for being a man.. without a reward of respect or admiration.. well it makes you feel like a chump no?
So how to fix it. This is what all this shit is about.
Do you simply walk away from it all?
Do you keep the status quo and remain masculine in a world that doesn’t appreciate it?
Do you reject masculinity outright and say ‘until the women return, im on strike’?
Do you ramp up the masculinity hoping the women leave the male frame to return to the female one?
Is there anything in between?
I think the CostaConcordia gave us a brief glimpse into that. The men who had families did everything in their power to save and would die for them. They earned the right to benefit from masculinity. The single women on the boat were fighting for the same right to live as the men, and that they were pushed aside is what made the news.. that they weren’t benefiting from masculinity because the world has so soundly shown a disdain for it, that masculinity will only now protect those that accept it’s place in the natural world and behave accordingly.
The men weren’t willing to trade in their lives for strange women. Men were free to choose where they lay down their lives to help another.
Men should strive to be masculine for themselves first and foremost, and let the rewards fall on those who earn it by accepting their own natural frames.
The question is which will break first. Men’s spirits to return to masculinity and drive women to eshew feminist’s unnatural ‘equality’ or women’s insistence on stepping into a masculine frame while deriding men for being masculine and still expecting to benefit from it.
I had more thought out in my head, but i lost a lot of it on the car ride this morning so this is the best i got.
As always.. have at it in the comments.
