State of the Manosphere 2018

Tonight at 10pm eastern my State of the Manosphere address goes live. I’ll be answering question in real time in the chat, but once this is up and on the 21 Convention You Tube channel I’ll be answering Q&A primarily on the comment thread of this post.

As I’ve mentioned in my last few posts, much of what I predicted to come for the next two years, with respect to our gender politics landscape, has come to pass far sooner than I expected. I fully expect the 2019 Super Bowl advertising to be a parade of misandrous hate directed at what the Feminine Imperative perceives as their ideological and political enemies – conventionally masculine men.

Furthermore, the scope of the APA’s guidelines about masculinity is revealing itself to be much more extensive with respect to ideological purity than any real science.

The APA ruling ‘traditional’ masculinity as a psychological disorder is also proving itself to be a part of a much larger coordinated attack on who the #resistance and #MeToo believe will be their primary opposition in the coming election cycle. The Gillette agitprop video and the PETA video were only the opening salvos to build the groundwork against conventional masculinity. I’ve seen damn near every article decrying ‘toxic’ masculinity since the beginning of the new year refer to the APA guidelines as a kind of Papal bull for their believers. Expect to see more media use this as a basis for their further demonizing men as we move into the election cycle.

Speaking of which, in the first 3 weeks of 2019 we’ve also seen an almost entirely female set of candidates declare themselves as running for their party’s nomination. Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Karen Gillibrand, and a few others couldn’t wait for the clock to strike midnight on December 31st, 2018. This was also something I alluded to in our December 29th episode of The Red Man Group; a vagina will be a prerequisite for consideration for the Democratic nomination in 2020.

Anyway, those were just a few things I saw coming last Fall. Let me know what you think about this talk. A lot of convention attendees told me it was one of my best. I hope you think so too.

Remember none of these guys have been through this at home and are projecting so you are the fearless leader at this point. One thing against you is ,it is all to close to home,Mrs. gamer shouldn’t have to much say in DG relationships nor should you other than protection. I generally agree. However, DG is pretty naive and needs some explaining about people from time to time. Yeah, it’s partly my fault that she’s so naive and I’m trying to fix that.

Of course the first explanation proposed by the (male) author is “backlash from angry males”.

I myself have observed that, despite women’s in-group preference, women often don’t like working with other women (@Palmasailor mentioned this effect more than once). Could the women “quota’d” into the panels be opposing hiring extra women?

The study is 53 pages and I’m short on time to go over it at the moment, but a quick scan shows that it is more sophisticated and less biased than the article produced by a freelance writer, so there is at least that. A question that pops immediately to mind is, how many of the female applicants were younger and hotter than the female committee members? This figure, “In physics, he predicted that four men and ten women would have been hired without the quotas” also strikes me as extremely significant.

@asdgamer What we have here is a fundamental lesson in red pill rule # Zero – all women want to look up to their man with respect and desire. No amount of blue pill counselling or other will rectify the SIL’s situation. Here is KS explaining the situation. Therefore, the best solution is for your SIL to man-up to the level required by DG or bugger off, being that I believe you said she is a doctor, said SIL must both become in DPA mode something a female doctor can respect.

@HABD Things start to make sense with the autistic SIL hypothesis: SIL’s ranting is SIL self-stimulating SIL is very rules-oriented SIL frequently misses social cues SIL acts up around family a lot (not sure why) If SIL is autistic and very high functioning: SIL operates normally with high levels of stress and discomfort which is standard for autists SIL is able to rationalize his rules like a champ SIL would most likely be slower to develop, especially emotionally–emotional immaturity is common among autists.

I totally disagree.

Perhaps you don’t know the backstories of Donovan Sharpe, Rian Stone, Steve Williams, and Carl of BlackLabelLogic. Do you?

In their personal lives they have “Demonstrated” Red Pill. They are all skilled Red Pill good content providers. Rollo knows that and that’s why collaborates with them.

I don’t disagree that they AMOG, but in my opinion they have the balls to back up their AMOGing and I believe based on their masculine life stories that they are demonstrating.

“It doesn’t seem to be on Kindle though unfortunately.”

It’s under SJW attack, with malicious actors within Amazon who occasionally take it down. So far it has always gone up again, with apologies, after running the issue up the chain of command. We’ll see what happens this time.

It used to be available in DRM free mobi direct from Castalia House, but I don’t see that option now. You can always use Calibre to convert the EPUB so it will read on Kindle.
