Remove the Man 2019

In October of 2017 I wrote an essay titled Male Control. It was actually the second time I’d covered the topic of how a feminine-primary social order (a Gynocracy if you will) seeks to control its male population by deliberately sowing confusion about masculinity into multiple generations of boys, and later men. Prior to this I’d written another seminal post titled Remove the Man in which is outlined the ways in which that Gynocracy makes efforts to systematically remove men from our language. Usually this takes the form of ‘erasing’ the letters m-a-n from the English language wherever it appears in an official capacity (i.e. state bylaws, universities, legislative documents), but also in gender-neutral translations of the Bible now. The only real constant in all of this the deliberate erasure of ‘man’ and/or ‘men’ from that language.

But if thought corrupts language, language can also corrupt thought.

George Orwell

I wrote Remove the Man back in 2013 in response to one such effort by the Governor of Washington, Jay Inslee, who passed a bill to make state laws gender neutral. The effort actually began in 2007, but in 2019 a simple search for ‘gender neutral language’ will show you the extent and scope of this much larger effort. This essay served and the starting point for a larger awareness for me – that of the push to remove men and masculinity from more than just our language, but rather the removal of all things conventionally masculine. As Orwell states here, the thought, the thinking, about masculinity and men is the focus of the corruption.

But language is only one way that the concept of what is masculine is distorted for a purpose.

Today the American Psychological Association issued its first-ever guidelines for practice with boys/men’s. In it the concept of conventional (traditional) masculinity is outlined as ‘harmful’.

The main thrust of the subsequent research is that traditional masculinity—marked by stoicism, competitiveness, dominance and aggression—is, on the whole, harmful. Men socialized in this way are less likely to engage in healthy behaviors.

It would be easy to refute this basic presumption with countless examples of how all of these traits, most of which are innate parts of men’s evolved mental firmware, have been key in developing a civil society as well as healthy masculine identity. But what we’re seeing in this is a corruption of language that is leading to the standardization of the corruption of thought.

Stoicism, competitiveness, dominance and aggression are evolved aspects of the male psyche that have served men for millennia. To the Red Pill aware man this is self-evident. What is less evident is the new context in which these ‘educated’ men apply meaning to these terms. Academia has been so thoroughly assimilated by the Feminine Imperative that the men making official decrees about psychological principle no longer have the insight to understand that their perspective is informed by ‘female-correct‘ thought.

There are two presumptions being made here:

First, is that men’s predisposition for stoicism, competitiveness, dominance and aggression are the results of a patriarchal societies adverse influence on boys and men.

The belief is founded in blank-slate social constructionism. I addressed this in Old Lies:

They hate the very idea that a boy might act in accordance with an inborn masculine proclivity. They hate the idea that a boy might learn to be tough and resilient at the expense of a vulnerability (weakness) because it contradicts the equalist belief set. They hate the idea that boys and girls have innately, biologically, different ways of dealing with emotions that don’t align with their belief in a blank-slate. To force them to accept this would be to force them to abandon deeply ego-invested beliefs that they themselves had conditioned into them by the same feminine-primary education.

Boys don’t naturally emote like girls, but when they refuse to align with the female-correct way of emoting we say that some patriarchal macho man, somewhere, in some movie, in some song, in some household taught that kid not to feel. He somehow learned that allowing his emotions to rule over him, to be vulnerable, to prioritize his feelings above his sense of rational self is what it actually is – a weakness that in our evolutionary past was far likelier to get him killed than to earn the praise of his equalist teachers.

Boys are simply not as emotional as girls – our brains did not evolve that way – but because we value the feminine above the masculine today we say this kid is doing it wrong. We say he learned to be an asshole from his macho dad or he learned to love firearms because of the latest rap song or a toxically masculine society that doesn’t exist. 

Now, granted, the men responsible for these psychological practices and their standardization tried to walk back the idea that conventionally masculine attributes weren’t “all bad”. This is expected because an aspect like stoicism can still be considered useful to a feminine-primary social order. It’s just that the larger social order wants the aspects of masculinity to manifest on its own terms and serving a female-centric utility.

A determined hard-driving man is what they want when the floodwaters start rising and women need to be carried to safety, but when a man uses that aspect of his masculine nature for his exclusive benefit, or a purpose that conflicts with feminine primacy, that’s when the aspect is defined as dangerous. However, the overall preconception is that there is some sinister influence of an old-school chauvinistic patriarchy teaching boys and men to be ‘toxically’ masculine. I addressed this fallacy in Old Lies, but this is one more example of how fem-centric society must cling to a clichéd parody of how boys must be being taught in order to cover the fact that boys are raised like defective girls today.

What is glaringly ignored is that these traits, and many more, are endemic parts of men’s evolved nature. Our emotional natures are not the same as that of women’s. Our brains are not wired the same as women’s. Men and women process emotions differently from the other, particularly negative emotions. This is a feature of the male brain, not a bug. But today the APA has decided unilaterally that men’s way of dealing with emotion is “incorrect”. Incorrect because the only correct way would be one that aligns with the women’s interests they’ve been conditioned to believe are only beneficial to larger society. To the APA, masculinity itself is a bug.

Secondly, this deliberate misconception relies entirely on social constructionism and almost entirely ignores the biological factors that contribute to masculine gender identity. I’m presently working on another essay that explores the dependency on blank-slate equalism as the basis for virtually every presumption the mainstream has about gender identity, so I don’t want to give too much away. However, the whole presumption of gender in humanist psychology depends on the falsehood that men and women are functionally coequal.

Accepting that failed notion of blank-slate equalism is what scaffolds the entire premise of this standard of masculinity. Masculinity is something that cannot be removed from society if its source is something that is unique to only men by virtue of their biology. They cannot ensure female-correctness as a societal standard if men and women are different. People like those in authority at the APA know this. It’s why merely talking about those innate gender differences is deemed a hate-crime today. Inspiring doubt in the blank-slate standard risks destroying the scaffolding for all their preconceptions of gender.

In the end this is one more, I think significant, effort in removing men and conventional masculinity from our collective thought. This standardization of how men should be ‘dealt with’ in therapy, or colored by in just considering men’s role in psychology is an ideological power play. Modern psychology officially doesn’t ‘get men’ anymore.

The latest Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM) will now officially list ‘traditional’ masculinity as a hazard or a disorder for male humans. They can’t be called ‘men’ because that would gender them.

I read a few Twitter threads about this change to the DSM and I think they’re worth reading to get a better grasp of the gravity of this standardization:

On December 29th, 2018 I made some pretty ominous predictions about what I thought the manosphere and men in general could expect to see in 2019-2020. We’re not eve a week into the first month and a lot of what I expected is starting to develop. The gender divide is now a gender ‘Cold War’ and going forward I see the polarization between the sexes becoming even uglier than the 2016 election cycle.

This issuance from the APA is a foundation for how psychology – our Lords of the new church – will define what is acceptably ‘male’ and what is not. Furthermore it defines what aspects of masculinity is officially hazardous based on social constructionism and science denial.

Going forward I think Red Pill aware men will have to view mainstream psychology with even more suspicion than we do already. My Red Man Group colleague, Rian Stone, has mentioned that this equivalent of a “Papal Bull” from the APA represents a call to action for the Red Pill community and the manosphere in general to help men understand that conventional, “traditional” masculinity is not a disorder.

The Red Pill saves lives. I can only see this standardization as a net negative for men who are already five times more likely than women to take their own lives. Men seeking psychological help will only find their problems compounded by psychologists trained to believe masculinity is inherently toxic. And as a result we need to be prepared to help our Blue Pill brothers unplug and show them their inherent worth as conventionally masculine men.

Not just sex or mind blowing sex which is well and good but that ineffable oxytocin flooding your brain animal magnetism that I have experienced before.

Love is a chemical reaction running into inexperience…

All these reactions lessen over time with the same partner.

My advice? Get high on your own supply, not on who you’re with. When you’ve done that, then you can vet around for a what? Wife? Mother?

What is your mission? Your MPoO? How satisfying are those things? How can you execute better on those things?

Men seeking psychological help will only find their problems compounded by psychologists trained to believe masculinity is inherently toxic.

That’s always been the main thrust to the psychology/psychiatry trade.
They check which direction the wind blows, call it good and right and healthy, and diagnose as ill all what isn’t aligned.
It’s what they do by definition, certainly the mainstream/famous ones, who are repute-hunters at heart, and certainly their associations, and collective bodies.

They don’t create the wind or set its direction, though.

The feminists have appropriated the arguments of people like Warren Farrell and Paul Elam and put their own spin on them. Where the MRAs play the oppression game right back at the feminists by citing homicide and homeless stats, the feminists fit it into their “patriarchy” narrative – male suicide rates, homicide rates, rates of homeless etc are caused by “toxic” masculinity, which is an “idea” somebody invented.

She’s just a girl . . . with a broad waist and narrow hips. She played the Miss Universe game better than the other girls. Other than that there’s nothing particularly notable about her.

It’s been a long time since “beauty” pageants were judged on beauty and most of the contestants don’t even quite make it to the “Hollywood Pretty” standard and lack the talent to compensate for it.

That’s why they go into the pageant circuit in the first place. It’s the wildcard round for girls who didn’t make the playoffs.

I’m from a younger generation and have no idea what that meant, but, in my pure non-toxic heart, unscathed by masculinity, I believe it tells a beautiful tale of reconciliation through… Read more »

re Novaseeker “On the APA stuff, there isn’t any “fight” to be done. They’ve won on that level, at least for the forseeable medium-term future. And …. so what?” There is a ‘so what’ if you are the father of boys. If teaching boys to be boys – to climb trees, play football, shoot, lift weights, compete, fight is now officially defined as unhealthy, imagine the trouble a red pill father can get into… Think about that boy in Texas with the crazy mother (the primary custodian) dressing him as a girl. If his father tries to teach him to… Read more »

Look at this useless motherfucker, the “MGTOW Monk” giggling. Freaking out over Canada disallowing consent vids/audio being disallowed in court. To be accurate, C151 makes all evidence of sexual history subject to judicial and prosecutorial review before it’s allowed in court. This is of course hugely problematic, but that’s not my point here. My point is that he presents the act of having sex as so dangerous, “bad contact” as he calls it. I’ve heard many a MGTOW go on about how getting laid is like walking through a literal minefield. Between STDs and rape charges, it’s just so scary!!… Read more »

@KABA – If course you are correct, and it just gets worse from there. They have “scientific proof” now that “traditional masculinity” is a problem. It will show up in schools, in govt funded efforts in all institutions and also be how the social media platforms come down on us further. One of the reasons I’m so hard on the LARPing motherfuckers in the RP world is because they don’t get where we are at. It’s very late. The war has already been lost while the likes of Nova and others were preening their Red Pill knowledge about on the… Read more »

With you on the boat thing, I’m off as well.

You’ll need a time machine to get that plan to work properly.

Interestingly on the dumb cunt feminist thing, I bounced a drunk troublemaking snowflake out of a coffee shop this morning (8am) who was making a nuisance of himself trying to steal things and was generally disturbing my karma

Were there any GenSnowflakes in the proximity?

A purple haired (assumed feminist) thanked me and bought me coffee..

@Palma – But you see, that purple hair who was appreciative of your “traditional masculinity” is also brainwashed with PostModernism so she’s perfectly content to hold two conflicting thoughts in her head at once. She can both hate you for your oppression and enjoy your protection without any cognitive dissonance. Hint: The biggest problem in our society today, in fact, is that too many semi-smart people think they are geniuses. Used to be people would say, “Oh, I don’t know about all that” when fancy ideas came up. But now? Every 105 IQ SJW is a renaissance man or woman,… Read more »

As recently as a year ago I might have been shocked at that “ad” (a straight up ideological attack on men that doesn’t even mention the product), but at this point it isn’t the first of its type that I’ve seen (I think the first was from Audi and didn’t even display the company logo until the last couple of seconds, so I didn’t even know it was a commercial ad until it was over, but I can’t find it now, so maybe it was some other car company). Duct tape and WD-40 are the two fundamental forces of the… Read more »

The most efficient way to game the court system, is to avoid it completely.

Barring that, a high powered/high priced experienced lawyer works best.

I have a couple of razors I use, the Merkur being my daily go to. I buy blades in bulk from amazon, usually 100 at a time because I change blades every other shave.

“I’ve won three out of three cases, two of them pro se. What’s your experience?” Lol, other than traffic court , I managed to avoid standing in judgement. I’ve been arrested a few times falsely, but that was resolved in a matter of hours with a lawyer, so things never escalated to jail/court/more jail. I don’t have much faith/trust or patience with the courts. Once I was in traffic court and the judge railed and yelled at me, and threatened to take my license on the spot. I didn’t have representation then as I was an 18 year old. Lesson… Read more »

But I see Palma and KFG are already on it.

I will definitely boycott Gillette products but as KFG points out, it can be tricky to figure out if they are a subsidiary of the maker of your alternatives.

I do have a straight razor I can dust off. Its fun once in a while but maybe I can make it a regular thing… shave in the reflection of my tin campfire pot.

Yeah, I saw Gillette getting hammered in those hundreds and hundreds of WSJ subscriber comments — a mildly conservative demo but not exactly the Toxic Manosphere — so maybe there’s hope.

Of course, women are the target buyer for most P&G products.

“. . . it can be tricky to figure out if they are a subsidiary of the maker of your alternatives.” I have two Schwinn’s that are Schwinns. I have one that’s a Giant and one that’s a Pacific, which is Dorel. I’m keeping my eye out for one that’s a Panasonic, which is Matsushita, except it’s really Panasonic now. If I wanted to buy a Schwinn that’s a Schwinn now, I would have to buy a Waterford, but some Rivendells are made by Waterford, which is the real Schwinn, but my Rivendell was made by Panasonic.

lol dont understand this double edged/straight razor as THE alternative to using Gillette’s razors.

Trimmed stubble > clean shaved anyway.

Just switch over to Phillips Norelco. Hell even Wahl’s trimmers are better than Gillette’s shit.

Don’t forget to ask them to smile.

In an odd twist, a while ago Australian nurses were instructed not to call patients “luv” and they’ve pretty well got their knickers in a twist over it.
