Good Humans

As was expected this week, there’s been an extensive and eager effort on the part our feminine-primary social order to once again further shifting the narrative of “toxic” masculinity to ‘masculinity is toxic. I addressed this in Male Control. Directly after the Las Vegas mass shooting we began to see articles from the femosphere decrying the evils of masculinity as being the cause of the violence.

It is no longer enough to foster the falsehood of varieties of masculinity as being “toxic” or “hyper”– now, any masculinity is a disease to society. The Feminine Imperative is all too ready to conflate any semblance of conventional masculinity with mass murder, rape, violence, harassment and any other social malaise that might viably be wiped off on men ‘being’ men. And in the wake of every new tragic act of violence this narrative shift will be more adamantly promoted by misandrist authors.

I covered a lot of this in Positive Masculinity and the Red Pill Parent series of essays, but even when I wrote these the cultural narrative was still promoting a distinction between what was acceptable masculinity and what was ‘toxic’ masculinity. This is what the Village has been instilling in our boys for some time now. Before the loss of Hillary Clinton and the Future is Female militancy took root there was some concession as to what might be considered an acceptable form of masculinity.

Naturally that ‘good’ masculinity was always defined as something uniquely benefitting the feminine. Before this cultural shift the Feminine Imperative still recognized the need it had for a masculinity that could be exploited for its purposes. There was still a need for men to Man Up and Shut Up. To be sure, boys were (and are) still taught by the Village as if they were defective girls. Boys had to be conditioned to hate their own gender in order to grow up into compliant and feminine-identifying men, but there was still a utility in masculinity that the Village recognized. Thus, there was a need to foster some kind of hopeful appreciation in men ‘being of service’ to women’s needs. There still needed to be a carrot for the mule to follow if men were to accept the old books social contract and that was the hope that their usefulness might ever be appreciated and rewarded.

The ‘Broken Boys’

Selling men on the old social contract while playing by the new set of rules worked for the Feminine Imperative throughout the late 80s, 90s and the early 2000s. However, what this narrative shift represents is a turning point in women acknowledging men as no longer (as) useful to their imperative. By 2012 it was the beginning of the End of Men, and there was little doubt, even back then, that we’d have the First Female President in office right after Obama’s exit. In the wake of that obsolescence the idea that masculinity was in any way beneficial to the Feminine Imperative, and maintaining the facade that masculinity in men might have some redeeming aspects, is no longer necessary. The feminine meta-frame has no reason to prompt men into believing their gender has anything ‘good’ to contribute to society. And thus we see the shift from qualified forms of ‘bad’ masculinity – toxic, hyper, Patriarchy, “culture of ____” – to the intended, non-qualified form of all masculinity being bad.

For the moment gyonocentrism must content itself to capitalize on human tragedies to emphasize its new masculinity = bad narrative. The Las Vegas shooting was the first paradigm shift in this respect. Once the obligatory, and now entirely boring, gun control sermons are published as a reason for the carnage, then the demonization of masculinity can be served up.

However, in the case of the most recent Nikolas Cruz shooting the Feminine Imperative gets a double bonus. The message is not only are men and masculinity the reason for all violence ever, but our boys are being taught to be these violent psychopaths because some outdated (and entirely mythical now) macho masculinity is making them so. Our boys, they say, are “broken”.

“Comedian” Michael Ian Black had a rash of post-shooting tweets that sum this narrative up:

Black is a perfect example of a Blue Pill conditioned ‘ally’ of the Feminine Imperative, but his sentiments here sum up exactly the tact that the femosphere has been using for a while now. There will always be a utility in appealing to the old male social contract as a horrible, chauvinistic, misogynistic, insensitive facade of what masculinity should be. It serves the imperative well if the Village can convince the larger populace that boys are still being taught by horrible masculine men and a society that hasn’t existed for 50 years which bully them into being potential Nikolas Cruzs.

They say boys are broken because it’s the only easy explanation that vaguely sounds right in the face of the Village systematically feminizing boys for the past four generation. Boys are “broken” because of an “outdated masculinity” that was replaced with a feminine-primary educational system decades ago. They’ll blame men for perpetuating that lie, and in the next breath blame men for not being “men” enough to engage with these young men so as to deter them from tragedies like this. The Village has been so effective in blurring conventional masculinity that its adherents themselves have no idea what masculinity entails.

When the 2018 Women’s March took place I, and a lot of other men in the sphere, noticed a common theme in the protest placards that mothers were creating for their sons. The message for girls was the standard “girls can do anything” pablum, but for boys the message was all the same:

“BOYS WILL BE BOYS   GOOD HUMANS”

The message of today’s Village is that Boys are never to be boys, never to be male, never to be masculine in any positive aspect,…boys are born as not ‘good humans’. At least, boys are not good human beings until they acquiesce to the Village that is teaching them and to the authority of The Future is Female paradigm. In order to create the genderless, masculine-less, gelded men of the future they must get to boys earlier and earlier in their development.

In the interests of full disclosure I’ve had a handful of women defending this ubiquitous messaging tell me that it’s meant to teach boys not to blame their “shitty behavior on just their being male” – boys will be boys – but what even its defenders don’t recognize is the deeper message that boys of this age register; and particularly in an acculturation process that considers them defective girls.

But this is where we’re at in the intersexual environment today. To the imperative men are no longer men today, they are “allies”. This is the next logical step in Removing the Man from our social context. Boys are no longer ‘boys’, and they can only ever be ‘good humans’ so long as they continue their Blue Pill conditioning to become ‘allies’ later.

 


The following is a reblog of Josh Ishiro Finney’s A Letter to Boys & Young Men of America. Josh had this post and his blog attacked in the wake of the school shooting in Florida this week and I felt it was impactful enough to warrant a reblog here. Having written many a post on the war on conventional masculinity – and really the better part of my book Positive Masculinity – I wanted to extend my support for his commentary.


A response to mass shooting in Florida.

The bodies aren’t even cold yet and already you are being blamed.

Yes you.

All of you.

The boys and young men who will grow up to become one half of America’s future.
Once again, due to society’s failure to raise you, to teach you, to properly guide you on your path to manhood, your mere existence is being held responsible for seventeen more deaths—this time in Florida, and once again, at a school. The headlines of the last few days say it all:

  “Guns don’t kill people; men and boys kill people, experts say”
  -USA TODAY

  “Michael Ian Black reacts to Florida shooting: Boys are broken”
  -New York Daily News

  “How Gun Violence And Toxic Masculinity Are Linked, In 8 Tweets”
  -The Huffington Post

  “Toxic white masculinity: The killer that haunts American life”
  -Salon

  “Toxic Masculinity Is Killing Us”
  -The Boston Globe

  “Toxic Masculinity Is Killing Us”
  -Harpers Bazaar

  “Don’t Blame Mental Illness for Mass Shootings; Blame Men”
  -Politico

In the handful of decades I’ve been alive, I’ve seen America shift from a culture of responsibility to one of blame. We don’t solve problems anymore. We cry, we pray for, we seek to find closure, and then finally, slaughter a sacrificial lamb for our sins. When I was young and Columbine happened, that lamb was Marilyn Manson and video games. Before that, it was D&D and Twisted Sister. These days, though, as body counts continue to rise and excuses continue to vanish, the lamb America has chosen to sacrifice is you. Rather than take responsibility for the seeds we’ve sown, the culture we built, and the disaster you’ve been left to inherit, we as a nation have chosen to lie to ourselves. To listen and believe those who claim that the answer is simple: “Boys are simply born bad.”

As an aging Gen Xer watching this tragedy unfold, I can’t help but look back at my youth and realize we were the dry run for this “crisis of masculinity” as the media likes to call it.

In my time I’ve watched as fathers were pushed out of the home, separated from their children, and their role in society debased and devalued. Like you, I was taught male behavior was bad behavior. That I was broken and needed to be fixed. Drugs, therapy, mass socialization were required to save me from my most innate instincts—

—the need compete.

—the drive to create.

—the urge to protect.

—the desire for female affection.

Like you, I was told these instincts were not only wrong, but dangerous. That due to my Original Sin of being born a boy, I was destined to mature into a lustful monster and an oppressor of women. All this was burned into me before I even reached college, where campus policy actually assumed all men to be rapists waiting to happen.

It isn’t hard to see how we got here, to an age when America is more than willing to sacrifice its boys. To quote Fight Club, “We’re a generation of men raised by women.” And the women who raised my generation had a saying: All men are pigs. But there’s another saying those same women were enamored with and that is: The hand that rocks the cradle rules the world.

So here we are, coming close to fifty years of single mothers raising their boys as if they were animals. Two generations of young men raised to believe they’re broken, immoral, and dangerous. That their natural state, if left unchecked and unmedicated, is a sexual ticking time bomb of rape and abuse. Half a century of academia peddling a grim version of history that holds your gender personally responsible for all the wrongs ever to have happened in the world. And a press, that at this very moment, is blaming YOU for every school shooting to have ever occurred.

After all this, how could there not be a crisis of masculinity?

So to the boys and young men of America, believe me when I say it isn’t you who should be apologizing for the state of our world today. This mess was set in motion long before you were born.

You are not bad.

You are not broken.

You are not inherently evil or a sexual abuser in waiting.

You are boys who were robbed of your right to be men.

All your life you’ve been told to act, think, and behave like women. To suppress your passions, your pride, your need to compete and drive to achieve.

Now society is crumbling around us.

Feminizing boys didn’t make better men. It’s resulted in broken homes and shattered families and record suicide rates. It’s destroying any notion of a healthy partnership between men and women, and is pushing us ever closer to total collapse of gender relations.

Boys, we don’t need you to be like women, the world has plenty of women, already.

What the world needs now more than ever is for you to be men.

For you to grow-up, to grow strong, and do what men do.

For it is men’s strength and determination that tamed the wilderness, built civilization, and has kept the world fed despite all predictions we’d all die starving before the year 2000. It’s men’s curiosity that lead us to explore the oceans, to conquer space, and peer into the tiniest of microcosms of the human body. It was men who built the cities we inhabit, the luxuries we enjoy, the medicines that keep us alive. Men built the road, the plumbing, the electrical grid, the phone in your hand, the internet it’s connected to.

Men have always been innovators, explores, defenders, and leaders.

But most importantly, men have always been fathers.

So to the boys and young men of America, please read this and take every word to heart.

The world needs you.

That white men are now finding themselves viciously attacked by the monster they set loose to cripple and destroy other men is a truly remarkable irony. But I would not say that the white men of today “deserve” what is happening to them anymore than my black ancestors “deserved” what was done to them.

Of Course they’re going to blame us for everything. They have no choice.

Brothers: we must stop expecting women to reason or be consistent. They simply evolutionarily biologically cannot. These are, truly, children. They cannot help how they are.

Providing reason and guidance is our lot.

We must, where ever we are, stand firmly, unapologetically, and hold the line.

Sentient, maybe this is conjecture but perhaps our social insistence on medicating boys for “disruptive” behavior (boys are defective girls) is a reason for the rise in SSRI prescriptions?

Could be. Whether it is cause or effect, drugging is an issue. And the money. All serve the end goals of Equalist owners. Now where the apparent rise in female teacher / male student sex figures in is a question? Perhaps they can’t help themselves to the only Alpha they see? Keep a few defect free…

And what drug is #1 for inflammation? Cannabis.

Look up – cytokine cascade cannabis.

@Razorwire I hear you man, I actually use that same expression that it’s straight up child abuse especially on the nutrition piece at public schools. Breakfast will be stuff like muffins or cakes(not joking), no eggs or beans at all like when I was in school. They say they care about the kids, but that right there is sending them on a straight diabetic train, I let my son eat once a week from the cafeteria, usually when it’s pizza ,is the day he chooses and breakfast once a week also other than that it’s lunch from home, proper nutrition… Read more »

On SSRIs, a young guy at work is on them (late 20s), he is up and down on them, sometimes really happy , sometimes down, and rapid cycling within the same day it seems. Not a good idea to mess with brain processes/chemicals externally , you are asking for trouble but it doesn’t take some genius to figure that out. I was at the doctors last year and could overhear the conversation in the next room and it was young guy afraid to go on SSRIs or some type of mental medication, and he was concerned about it altering his… Read more »

Thanks MSimon, I will check it out. I’ve done a lot of rudimentary study of cannabinoids as part of an abandoned start-up in CBD, but haven’t dug into it in a while. That kind of signaling and mobility of inflammation is part of the depression/mood disorder link too; inflammation flowing into the brain directly and wreaking havoc. Fascinating stuff. I’m near-convinced that systemic inflammation is a huge (of course interrelated) area of study that has potential to crack open some longstanding mysteries and misunderstandings. One more area where the internet and some self-directed gumption is leading individuals out of their… Read more »

“The world needs you.”

I suspect the vast majority of men who realize the lies they’ve been sold will take the Rorschach of Watchmen line of thinking in reaction to that plea:

“…all the whores and politicians will look up and shout ‘Save us!’… and I’ll look down and whisper ‘No.'”

If you expect men to save the world, you damn well better give them incentive to save it.

“If you expect men to save the world, you damn well better give them incentive to save it.”

sheesh sun, not gonna preach to you but I’d hope that it’s not all that gloom and doom

the beauty is that a man need only save himself and that’s incentive enough; and by doing this, he will be doing his part to save the world

I don’t expect every man to make it but that’s his choice, and that’s no different that for anything else, just like it’s always been for men

I didn’t say they should put it that way, but from what I’ve seen that’s the general reaction to a mere taste of The Red Pill. Most guys don’t get through to the other side to find hope, hence the reason the most visible Red Pill demographic I’ve seen has been the very angry side of MGTOW. Even in my own personal experience the trip has not been easy by any stretch.

It’s unfortunate, but I suspect the story does not positively in general.

Razorwire, Sentient, FoxGuy: Adding to all your unassailable data, here’s a reminder from the Capt. Obvious Dept.: All this dosing of children with SSRI’s, amphetamines (Ritalin) and diazepams (anti-depressants) were complete baldface fucked in the head EXPERIMENTS. None of these compounds was indicated for pediatric use when they were approved. No diagnostic studies were done on children with them. Nor could they have been. (Want parent would agree to subjecting a kid to a long terms drug test protocol with no guarantee how it would fuck them up down the road?). So all of this was done “off-label”, as the… Read more »

@FoxGuy Thanks. Part of the motivation to move close to my nephew is that I have been working with versions of him for several years and have seen his future in their evolution. Its tragic. When I work with these boys it is hard NOT to see so much beauty and potential in them. But you’d also have to be blind to not see that they are starving. Their bellies are not distended and there are no flies pestering their eyes, but they are in a famine. The isolation, disenfranchisement, self-loathing, anger, resentment, frustration, and the medicated no-mans-land into which… Read more »

“From the article – “In the past, commentary has been mostly forgettable, a basic summary of what’s going on the ice peppered with compliments. Lipinski and Weir take a different approach. They’re blunt and don’t mince words. If something goes poorly — and of course, it often does — they will tell it like it is.”

That means they are just being “basic bitches”.”

Yes. But, mostly it is written to frame these clowns as being honest…..both are walking lies.

@Blaximus February 20, 2018 at 9:31 am There are no excuses. Please stop trying to find alternative answers. 50 years ago, there weren’t mass shootings or school shootings taking place with regularity. I have to say that this is what I find frustrating about American society. Still trying to excuse shitty, homicidal behavior by finding that ” something ” that could be ” the cause ” outside of the culture itself. American culture is the cause. Why aren’t mass shootings happening anywhere else with regularity? I think this is the 12th mass shooting incident this year. Is everyone on anti… Read more »

Rollo: “For the moment gyonocentrism must content itself to capitalize on human tragedies to emphasize its new masculinity = bad narrative. The Las Vegas shooting was the first paradigm shift in this respect.”

Don’t forget Newtown CT, a much closer fit for your point. Vegas fell off the radar screen quickly and oddly.

Just throw out Harvey and change the narrative and its water under the bridge ( Since vegas was pretty bad and even “average people noticed” (Nothing adds up lol))……. Not hard to distract people from things that actually matter.

Then after every shooting push for gun control and if it goes back switch the narrative and rinse/repeat

Which goes back to the point I was attempting to make earlier. There’s something really, really wrong with the culture, and it only goes in one direction: down.

This , I believe, is what happens when men are basically zeroed out as a whole in society. It goes off the rails in slow motion, with barely a whimper in the process.

Lol, maybe Mexico should build a wall ( and pay for it ) to keep us in.

As men, we are fighting a very strong current, fighting up a hill and the losses are very very steep at the moment. When you get up to the top of the hill there is another bigger hill that must be conquered and so on, it’s grueling, anyone telling you it isn’t so is bullshitting you. Make no mistake, the path forward will be very very tough for everyone involved, these shootings are just a shadowing of what is to surely come, when society and culture devolves down to it’s lowest common denominator.

In defense of recess http://reason.com/archives/2018/02/19/when-school-kids-lose-their-re One teacher chimed in to defend the practice—”We work with kids who are coming to [us] from all sorts of situations. I think a lot of times, these kids need to be held accountable for poor decisions”—but most of the people who responded were parents with horror stories. Christine Davis, an organizer with Arizonans for Recess, forwarded me a front-page story from Phoenix’s North Central News showing a gaggle of second graders sitting against posts. A parent snapped the photo “because district leadership was denying that recess was being withheld,” she says. Davis’ group tried… Read more »
