Be warned dear readers: this post contains personal admissions:
I’ve been harsh on the ladies of late – many of whom have publicly accused me of cowardice among a host of other unpleasant things. It’s all because I’ve suggested men should take whatever measures necessary for curing our feminine wards of the ravishes of Jacobin wizardry. To say it plain: I believe if you smack around a good woman she’ll give up her feminism.
The outcry has been horrendous to say the least. I’ve spared my readers the majority of the comments.
My apologies to you harpies but, it’s not just me that feels this way. Thousands of disgruntled would-be “alphas” are taking to the net to vent their frustrations against the matriarchy, prompting a movement known as “manosphere”. These fellows are characterized by their profanity-filled posts written with hip lingo which are focused on all the short-comings of the weaker sex.
Many, like author Matt Forney, go so far as to suggest oppressed white men seek out mates among Asians who are supposedly more chaste, submissive, and generally more agreeable in every way than the average American harpy.
I understand the appeal of sexual adventurism in exotic locales – you can’t spend time in the Navy without feeling the allure of it. And I certainly understand the disgust towards feminism (which has thoroughly inundated well over 90 percent of American women).
But something about Forney’s article (and the manosphere in general) rubs me the wrong way. I want old Christian Europe, or nothing at all, and damn-it-all if I don’t intend to have it.
On the other hand, Terrys only love once, and the love of my life married another man years ago. So what’s left for me other than crass hedonism?
Between a Quixotic fairy-tale and a hedonistic hard-place … that’s where I am.
Still, no amount of personal uncertainty can pave over the disgust I have when I read these man-o-sphere types disparage the fairer sex, or speak about them as if they’re on a level with the rest of us. It’s this sort of egalitarianism the manosphere should be avoiding! And however mangled daughters of Eve have become (and they’re pretty mangled), they’re always going to be the bearers of God’s creative beauty and winsome cleverness.
After all, God created everything else in the universe before He created women. They’re His crowning achievement; more glorious than the Leviathan, more beautiful than the blue-ridge mountain ranges – more angelic than even the angels! God has given man woman. The second-greatest gift (next to Christ) ever given.
We ought to be ashamed if we abandon them to the ravages of the devil.
