MALE DISPOSABILITY – The hereditary warrior class

It’s been 40 years since the US stopped relying on a draft to fill its Army, although males and not females are still required to register and face significant disadvantages if they don’t. In that time the predicted rise of a hereditary warrior class has in fact taken place and is coming close to being completed.…

MISANDRY – Dating and a straight guy who sometimes wishes he were gay.

A redditor posted a self-reddit in which he said that dating American women made him wonder if he would be better off gay. I think he meant more than just the joy of finally getting a competent blow job. He may have meant not being subject to date-rape accusations, or at least of having a fighting chance at defending himself, or less chance of being subjected to Intimate Partner Violence.…

MISOGYNY – Misogyny? High heels and choices

Salon.com has an article up that explores reasons besides added height as possible explanations as to why women wear high heels. High heels have to rank with corsets and neckties as extremes of stupid, uncomfortable clothing.

It turns out though maybe however stupid high heels may be, they may be stupid ina very effectual way.…

TALES OF THE RED PILL – Feminist Allies of MRAs, Part II – Double Standards

Feminism is a men’s issue.

 Amanda Marcotte and others repeatedly insist that feminism is good for what ails men, in other words that feminists and women get to dictate to men what solutions are valid for men’s issues. This is part of the tradcon division of labor we see in so many marriages where the woman gets the responsibility and all the power over social relations – in this case, gender relations.…

Something you notice almost immediately in a space like Reddit MensRights is the number of women, often self-identified feminists, sometimes ex-feminists, who come by curious about a subreddit they have heard denounced as misogynistic, and have a look for themselves – or who are just interested in men’s issue and think that’s a good place check out.…

LADIES’ AUXILARY OF THE PATRIACHY: Feminists should advocate for chivalry? WTF?

Put down the crack pipe, Emily Esfahani-Smith.

This is the shit that makes real feminists cry, the ones who believe and cling to feminism’s promise of working for gender equality, the only real basis for real empowerment of women. This article in the Atlantic by Emily Esfahani-Smith is a hot mess of retrograde women’s advocacy on the backs of men, and it does women no favors either.…

Correcting a Misunderstanding About Apexuality

I don’t go to Manboobz’s blog so I’m clearing this up for the sake of the people who read and comment on this blog. Also there’s no real point in posting this there since all it will do is inspire an endless round of “well what you really meant was [insert misrepresentation]” followed by “no, in fact if you read the actual quote, the immediate subject preceding ‘it’ was male politician, not trans woman.…

EQUALITY – Marriage license day in Washington

We took the day off to get our marriage license. Thursday, December 6th, the election results on the referendum on same-sex marriage were going to be certified and Governor Gregoire was going to sign off on them, the first day we could get a license. We could have waited of course but this seemed like being part of history.…
