Fisking Dad Who Misunderstands Masculinity In Huffington Post

I get that not everyone understands masculinity.  I really do.  The media has bombarded us with this image of how traditional masculinity is oh-so-wrong and they’ve offered nothing to counterbalance it.  They’ve never shown any positive that could be attributed to traditional masculinity at all.

It’s easy to see why someone can be confused.

Take Mike Reynolds, a blogger at Huffington Post and now a t-shirt designer.  He’s offered up a line of t-shirts that ever FIM should line up and snag, but actual men will probably pass on.

Along the way, he offers his insights into masculinity, and they’re hilarious, so I decided to fisk the crap out of them.

The Huffington Post piece will be in bold and italics, while my comments won’t be. Continue reading “Fisking Dad Who Misunderstands Masculinity In Huffington Post”

Why Do Feminists Seem So Preoccupied By Masculinity?

Have you ever heard the term “toxic masculinity” used?  I have.  More than once, actually.  It’s usually used to describe traditionally masculine virtues since feminists and FIMs see such virtues as heralds of the anti-christ or something.

15106273965_4f3bdf242a_hWell, it appears that American colleges and universities are actively trying to stomp out these virtues.

Universities across the nation are taking steps to actively purge male students of what’s been labeled “toxic masculinity.”

Examples abound of campuses hosting training sessions, group meetings, lectures and other programs to effectively cleanse what many campus leaders and left-leaning scholars contend is an unhealthy masculinity in young men today.

On campus, toxic masculinity is often blamed for sexual violence, body shaming, a “hyper-masculinized sporting culture,” acts of domestic terrorism and much more.

Wow, if this is what masculinity is busy doing, you’d think we’d hardly find time to oppress women.  Who says men can’t multitask? Continue reading “Why Do Feminists Seem So Preoccupied By Masculinity?”

Manning Up: Why The Phrase Matters And Why Feminists Should Shut Up About It

When someone is being a whiny little twit, many of us have a tendency to tell them to “man up.”  We’re telling them that they’re not acting like a man and to fix that stuff right away.

An alternative is to tell someone to “nut up,” which basically means the same thing.  “Nut” in this instance means “testicle,” which only males have.

So, a while back, I came across this pic and really had to say something about it:

man-up

First, does anyone else think it’s funny that they get some beta male FIM to pose for pics like this?

Second, it’s complete BS. Continue reading “Manning Up: Why The Phrase Matters And Why Feminists Should Shut Up About It”

To Be A Man, Or Not To Be A Man

This is the post excerpt.

Why should a male worry about whether he’s a man or not?

It’s a fair question.  In this day and age, there are remarkably few penalties for not being a man.  In fact, some segments of society will embrace you and celebrate you for just that fact.

However, many know something isn’t right about it.  The sense it on an instinctive level.

So, they want something more.

Plenty of websites will tell them how they should be.  The New York Times tried to do just that last year with a piece where writer Brian Lombardi offered his thoughts on what a modern man is.

It’s an example of what happens when feminism-indoctrinated males try to define manhood.  It contains such gems as, “When the modern man buys shoes for his spouse, he doesn’t have to ask her sister for the size. And he knows which brands run big or small” and “The modern man uses the proper names for things. For example, he’ll say “helicopter,” not “chopper” like some gauche simpleton.”

One of my favorites is this:

Does the modern man have a melon baller? What do you think? How else would the cantaloupe, watermelon and honeydew he serves be so uniformly shaped?

This is manliness?

The presence of a melon baller doesn’t make one less of a man, but it’s not something that should remotely even be considered. Possessions don’t make the man.

Lombardi’s post was derided by numerous men for the sheer ridiculousness of it.  He claims the modern man sleeps closest to the door so he can fight off an intruder, then claims they won’t touch a firearm, the most effective tool for doing just that.

It should have been.

Lombardi, and many other feminist-indoctrinated males (FIMs), don’t understand the essence of man.  They don’t get it, and what’s more is they don’t want to get it.

Frankly, that’s their right.

So, the question is whether a male should or shouldn’t embrace a more traditional form of masculinity.  That’s up to them.  However, if you’re one of those men who knows what’s being shoveled your way isn’t the way it should be, then you already have your answer.  Don’t you?
