Manosphere reads, Love and Rockets, and more


  • A wise man: The real division in the United States, and by extension the West, is not between political liberals and political conservatives, or Evangelicals and Catholics, or liberal Protestants and conservative Protestants, etc., but between those who think like traditionalists and those who think like modernists. And believe me, there are many Evangelicals, Catholics, "conservative" Protestants and political "conservatives" who are numbered among the latter. Right; learned that 35 years ago, when the mainstream pushed the idea to me of "conservative" meaning "plays the stock market" for boys and "shops at the mall" for girls, because there really was no generation gap; the Sixties won.
  • Roissy: Game in the ego validation age. Classic psychology: showering a girl with compliments, which inexperienced men do, doesn't endear you to her. She takes it for granted. Interesting graph on how couples meet in America: church has nose-dived. I guess the North is becoming Europe in that regard.
  • Black Poison Soul: What do you like to do? Perhaps that's why the divorce/frivorce occurred. He's literally not the man that she married. Much or all of his individuality has been wiped away, replaced with an interchangeable robot who can do not much more than acquiesce to whatever her desires are. So she leaves because he's not what she fell in love with — no duh, stupid. Giving women power doesn't endear you to them. Shorthand for the female libido: romance-novel covers. All those pirates grabbing girls in prom dresses. (Apparently Fifty Shades of Grey is really of this genre, plus perverse modernity.) Not a sweet guy who caters to his girl among them. That said: No Ma'am on the Keynesian sexual market, a better map for men than that of the pickup artists (very modern sociopaths, parasites, any sane community would run out of town; beta's actually normal, not a dirty word) that doesn't sell out like many Christian-based (white-knight) sites (the woman- and child-centered herb as the ideal Christian husband and dad; ask Leif Erikson how that's working out). Leftism is a Christian heresy so I think I understand male feminism's appeal to naive nice guys. Men shouldn't be saps for women (naturally hard when your glands start screaming at you as a teenager) but Men Going Their Own Way (MGTOW) shouldn't be the regressive (childish) He-Man Woman Hater's Club either. It's about men becoming men again, which incidentally is what healthy women want. Which — authentically conservative, authentically Catholic (which isn't a pious game or fantasy but conforming yourself to what's real, what Aristotle meant by reason) — builds society the way nature's leaders, real alpha males and their sexy wives, do, or at least used to.
  • The Rational Male: Build a better beta. How the manosphere can sell out.
  • Radix Journal: Rachel Doležal and the quest for identity. I agree with the amateur psychologizing about her: her ultimate revenge against her "pathologically altruistic" parents, still seeking their approval, was to become their perfect person, then disown them. Whatever became of those criminal false reports to police? Charges against her? That's what interests me. With that, she wasn't harmless anymore. She probably didn't think anybody would get hurt since, after all, there was no real threat against her.
  • Music: Love and Rockets, "So Alive," from 1989.

  1. "Much or all of his individuality has been wiped away, replaced with an interchangeable robot who can do not much more than acquiesce to whatever her desires are... It's about men becoming men again, which incidentally is what healthy women want."

    "But very broadly speaking it may still be said that women stand for the dignity of love and men for the dignity of comradeship. I mean that the institution would hardly be expected if the males of the tribe did not mount guard over it. The affections in which women excel have so much more authority and intensity that pure comradeship would be washed away if it were not rallied and guarded in clubs, corps, colleges, banquets and regiments. Most of us have heard the voice in which the hostess tells her husband not to sit too long over the cigars. It is the dreadful voice of Love, seeking to destroy Comradeship."

    -G.K. Chesterton
