These are dark days for manhood.
Our forefathers fought tyrants for freedom, and now our children, raised from womb to tomb on an endless parade of participation trophies, need "safe spaces" to protect them from words, because, after all, "words hurt." What has become of masculinity when a boy thirty years ago showed more fearlessness when facing the world than the stereotypical millennial at Berkeley? More importantly, what have we done to boys? For there is no doubt that the current state of affairs is not natural; we have distorted the natural development of boys, and thus destroyed the possibility of them becoming men.
How did this happen?
This distortion, which is, if we are honest, nothing less than the systematic destruction of masculinity, began in the middle of the 20th century, when feminism began to become synonymous with Marxist class philosophy, albeit with masculinity taking the place of the bourgeoisie. Feminism is, therefore, nothing but sexual Marxism; feminism is vengefulness with a vagina. For these feminists, masculinity itself became tyrannical, and man a class of tyrannical human being- a thing to be overthrown, a thing to be eliminated. But how?
The war against manhood has gone through four distinct phases:
Phase I: The Philosophical Phase- This is early feminism of the post-suffrage type where equality ceased to be a legal concern and began to be infected by Marxist structuralism. Here we see the idea that cultural variances between males and females is not due to genetic differences between males and females but rather represents "structural" forms of oppression (whatever those may be). Conceptions of male and female begin to be forcibly removed from their traditional biological foundations; the natural order of human development is ignored. Philosophy becomes fantasy.
Phase II: The Moral Phase- This is feminism as a system of morality; the false "is" of the earlier philosophical phase becomes the false "ought" of the moral phase. Now the old morality as it pertains to men is condemned: respect for manhood, the conceptualization of manhood as qualitatively different than womanhood, the call to leadership, self-sacrifice, virtue in the masculine sense, fatherhood as a role of protection and provision, etc. Similarly, the old morality as it pertains to women is likewise condemned: respect for manhood, marriage, the creation of a family, the taking on of the role of the mother, reverence for the quiet dignity of the supporting role, and of course the traditionally feminine qualities- all condemned. By creating a moral void, feminism is left unchecked to fill that gap with whatever gibberish it sees fit.
Phase III: The Biological Phase- This is feminism as a lifestyle that physically destroys the developmental trajectory of males. The development of men is very different than the development of women, and has very different requirements: risk, danger, viciousness, competition, stratification, etc. Boys require circumstances that promote testosterone production, which includes specific dietary needs. These needs are anti-pacifist and anti-vegetarian: A lack of competition, for instance, decreases testosterone production while soy and similar protein substitutes increase estrogen production. [Side note: Testosterone levels in males in America has dropped significantly over the past two or three generations; males are actually becoming females at the hormonal level.]
Phase IV: The Legal Phase- This is feminism as a legal movement to condemn manhood at the government level, which includes, but is not limited to, the condemnation of ideas spoken by men, the call for removal of men from positions of authority on account of their being men, the denial of benefits derived from a masculine perspective, the rewriting of history in order to erase the successes of men from the public mind, etc. Moreover, this phase is an attempt at restructuring society in such a way as to continue to biological destruction of males begun in Phase III. For instance, Phase IV feminism would include the outlawing of traditionally masculine activities such as martial arts and hunting; the expansion of the conception of marriage to the point of de facto abolition of the institution, to be followed by de jure abolition of the institution; the abolition of the use of animal products, which are necessary for male development; etc.
This all sounds so reactionary. Surely, the situation cannot be that bad! And yet it does not take long on a university campus to see the fruit of feminism in full view: a general resentment towards society as such combined with a truly breathtaking vengefulness towards manhood in particular. Feminism is poison; feminism is poison because feminism is Marxism- and it is destroying the fabric of society. Moreover, that is its intended purpose.
Marxism is a philosophy of world destruction, but its success is inversely related to the integrity of faith and family: Marxism never succeeds when faith and family remains intact; Marxism never fails when faith and family have been torn apart. Feminism is Marxism at ground level; feminism destroys families so that Marxism can enter into the equation as the only possible solution to a problem that never existed before Marxism.
Manliness or Marxism- that is the choice presented today. And we all have to choose, for if we do not choose, the world will choose for us.
