Judgy Judges Judging

Dalrock has taken a break from his time consuming screeching about Warhorn to deal with the problem of single mothers not having any marital prospects. A commenter, Bee, suggested that single mothers give their children up for adoption at birth. As a parent of three adopted children, shouldn’t I get behind this …

Censorship is cowardice

I recently read a post lamenting the cowardice of bloggers. While the tone of that article was too black and white, the general premise was correct. A great many bloggers heavily censor their comments to avoid criticism. Such censorship is cowardice. Consider the warning on this post by Bonald of Throne …

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. …

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 …

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 …

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 …

Bias in the News: Washington Post edition

Regarding illegal border crossings and separating children from their parents, Salvador Rizzo of the Washington Post’s fact checker concluded with this: The doublespeak coming from Trump and top administration officials on this issue is breathtaking, not only because of the sheer audacity of these claims but also because they keep …
