It’s the three year anniversary of this blog. And the rumours of my demise are greatly exaggerated.
There’s always a degree of pontification when one looks back. One grows, one changes, one starts to see things. As I wrote previously, I talked about how one can notice an evolution in what you want to write, and the audience’s expectations. As a iron rule, the ones that are the most successful in any media are the ones telling their audience exactly what they want to hear. This is true of every “successful” blog, in the manosphere or otherwise. One thing to be sure is that I’ve never been about prostituting myself in the name of success.
If one follows, the manosphere has gotten decidedly blue-pill. In other words, it decidedly favors the “traditional feminist” pattern of marriage, which involves the submission of men to women, and especially the subservience of men to women. You can even see this in the conflicts going on in the more red-pill portions of the manosphere (namely the MGTOW section) where the blue-pill “manosphere” is undertaking attacks upon it. In a way though, these attacks are good as they are revealing the blue-pill, “one blowjob away”, supplicators to women in the manosphere (via Game or other means) for who they are when they comment on MGTOW. When the women come into the manosphere to gather their slaves back to the plantation with the promises they will be kinder and gentler slave masters, there are unfortunately a number of men that are just submitting like good little boys. For instance, not seeing this for the hamster droppings that it represents reveals much.
This extends to many other topics which I’ve commented on recently, and others. So many of them are so evident that they only take one sentence to reveal themselves and cause you to stop, so I really haven’t bothered to blog on them. I considered writing on Eliot Rodger’s manifesto as many others did, but got to the second sentence and it told me all I needed to know:
All I ever wanted was to fit in and live a happy life amongst humanity, but I was cast out and rejected, forced to endure an existence of loneliness and insignificance, all because the females of the human species were incapable of seeing the value in me.
Then there’s Recovering Biblical Manhood and Womanhood from the feminist thinkers at the Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood. All it takes is getting to Page 29 to see this (as it appears in text, minus my bolding for emphasis):
AT THE HEART OF MATURE MASCULINITY IS A SENSE OF BENEVOLENT RESPONSIBILITY TO LEAD, PROVIDE FOR AND PROTECT WOMEN IN WAYS APPROPRIATE TO A MAN’S DIFFERING RELATIONSHIPS.
AT THE HEART OF MATURE FEMININITY IS A FREEING DISPOSITION TO AFFIRM, RECEIVE AND NURTURE STRENGTH AND LEADERSHIP FROM WORTHY MEN IN WAYS APPROPRIATE TO A WOMAN’S DIFFERING RELATIONSHIPS.
Naturally, traditional feminism shows itself through both quotes: Men were put on this earth as a chattel class in order to provide and protect women, their betters. Consequently a man’s value is wrapped up in the validation and approval of women, and his measure as a “good man” is how well he submits to woman and proves himself “worthy”. I see this again and again in the manosphere in all quarters, even in the nonsense they cook up which always falls when submitted to scrutiny. Complete blue-pill traditionalists like these quotes, the ones talking red-pill but promoting blue-pill activities (purple-pills) like most of the manosphere. I keep reading and reading things consistent with the CBMW definitions. “The value of a man is how often his dick gets wet.” “The value of a man is whether he is yoked to a woman in slavery.” After all, remember much of the world, including the manosphere, would tell us that men would just wallow in their own crapulence if there wasn’t a woman in the general vicinity to bark orders to him. And I wouldn’t be surprised, if pushed, that the majority of the manosphere acceepts the CBMW definition.
Perhaps, that, coupled with my evolution towards focusing on the feminist elements of traditionalism in my writing has caused me to see much more of these things over the last year. Just tumbling deeper down the rabbit hole on the quest for truth… It’s interesting that three years of thinking on the topics of this blog have revealed to me that 3/4 of Keoni’s list (that I’ve read) are blue-pillers that I would consider feminist bloggers. Who would be like Cypher and want to go back knowing the truth of female domination?
Most of the topics I have in mind in the future when the time presents itself (I can’t sit around researching blog posts and chattering on blogs and Facebook all day every day like many) involve many of the things I’ve already spoken of on comments here and there.
Onward and further down the rabbit hole . . .
