When should men take a punch?

The recent Gillette ad has sparked questions about what constitutes masculinity. Over at the Simple Justice blog a discussion ensued about whether hostile the reaction to the ad represents men being fragile snowflakes. Scott Greenfield suggested that certain objections to the ad give rise to the accusation of fragility, “since …

Female gender bias in public schools

  I have four children—two boys and two girls—that attend the same public elementary school. Every month the school has a “Student of the Month” for approximately twenty children. Each month the category is different, but the winner is the best-of-the-best at gratitude, compassion, etc. The prize is an exclusive …

Anonymity and the authority of God

When I wrote Anonymous Leadership, I did not expect it to turn into multiple posts. The idea is not a new one or particularly revolutionary. Then, I stumbled upon the reverse correlation between anonymity and non-blog authorship. Next, I noted that anonymity contributes to the censorship problem in the manosphere. …

Censorship in the manosphere

While I spend a lot of time blogging against feminism, I don’t spend a lot of time discussing censorship.  Most of that happens on my schizophrenic Twitter account. To be clear: I hate censorship almost as much as I hate feminism. I may disagree with you, but I’ll defend your …

Theological Musings

Once in a while you get a strange convergence of ideas. Seemingly disjoint ideas blend together to provide insight. The signposts of life start pointing in a certain direction. Christians often interpret this as the leading of the Holy Spirit, but care must be taken in doing so. Recently Boxer …

Anonymity and Authorship

In a recent post I criticized anonymity in the manosphere. Those who refuse to share their names online are cowards. People who take controversial stances, but don’t put their name behind it, are not leaders. They have no skin in the game. There is a group of people who do have …

The Bible, Minus Cucks, Removes God

In our society a woman (who initiates divorces ~60-70% of the time) can take you to court and win alimony and child support for any, no-fault cause whatsoever. The purported goal of no-fault divorce is to protect against abuse of a wife. It does this, but at a heavy cost …

Sacred Tradition of the Old Testament

During the Q&A segment of the debate between Catholic Tim Staples and Reformed Baptist James White, Staples claimed that the validity of the Jewish canon required sacred tradition outside of the canon itself. This claim requires that the words of God contained within the Jewish canon are not, of themselves, sufficient: some …

Anonymous Leadership

I often write about marriage and the threats to it (e.g. feminism and divorce). I follow authors who write about these topics often. Many aggressively espouse patriarchal views of marital leadership. Recently the anonymous Deep Strength suggested that “your future wife should be happy to take your name”, arguing that a …

The Roles of Men and Women

As I lurk here and there on the internet, I occasionally run into those gems of insight that encapsulate my views exactly. Behold the words of one Boxer: My read of the bible doesn’t strictly say that women are second class. They’re just different. They have different strengths and a …
