The War on Men

The War on Men. By John Mac Ghlionn.

Across the country, a growing number of individuals, particularly young men, are walling themselves off from society. …

In Japan, the issue of social withdrawal is so severe that the Japanese even have a specific term for it: hikikomori. Hiki means “to withdraw,” komori “to remain inside.” It is estimated that at least 1.5 million Japanese people, many of whom are young men in their 20s and 30s, have completely withdrawn from broader society.

Some 6,000 miles away, in the U.S., young men are also retreating en masse. They stubbornly refuse to cooperate or engage with other members of society. …

Alternative reality:

These sad souls spend at least 2,000 hours each year glued to screens. The average American employee spends roughly the same amount of time working. …

Who made society so ugly for these men that they would rather  play on their computers?

There is a concerted effort to eradicate many of the attributes and behaviors commonly associated with healthy males: competitiveness, strength, courage, leadership, and assertiveness. In this post-Harvey Weinstein world, masculinity is now considered ‘toxic,’ a virus that requires a powerful vaccine.

If in doubt, let me point you in the direction of the education system, where guardians of our children are being taught how to identify and destroy traditionally masculine qualities. In a push for greater gender equality, teachers are being asked to promote something called ‘positive masculinity.’ If toxic masculinity involves bravery and strength, one needn’t possess more than a few working neurons to figure out what positive masculinity entails. What we are witnessing is emasculation en masse, a sort of psychological castration. …

The mainstream media is also on a mission to reduce the effects of ‘extreme masculinity’. The New York Times recently published a piece on the search for ‘non-toxic manhood.’ The Washington Post, meanwhile, blames toxic masculinity for the rise in male suicides.

Is a strong, courageous man more likely to kill himself than a weak, spineless one? I’ll let you answer that question for yourself.

On TV and in movies, the strong, independent man has been replaced by the strong, independent woman. The Boss Bro has been replaced by the Boss Bitch. An increasing number of once formidable male characters have been reduced to pathetic caricatures. Again, if in doubt, let me point you in the direction of “Thor: Love and Thunder”, one of the biggest movies of 2022. In it, Thor, a god associated with power and virility, finds himself the butt of female-perpetrated jokes. For a big, fat paycheck, Chris Hemsworth allowed himself to be publicly humiliated.

The year before, in “No Time to Die”, we witnessed the emasculation of James Bond.

Contrary to popular, unscientific belief, males and females are not the same. There are a number of sex differences in brain anatomy. Moreover, men are, on the whole, judged much more harshly than women.

Andrew Tate, the much-maligned influencer, famously said that “women are, and men must become.” In other words, in order to become successful, to become something of value, all men must battle various hardships. They must undergo a multi-stage lifecycle. Encountering and overcoming adversity is not just advisable, it’s necessary.

Tate is right. A 300 pound woman will always find some poor sucker to wife her up. A 300 pound man, on the other hand, will almost definitely die alone, drowning in a sea of blubber, sweat, and tears.

There is no place in the world for average men. The same is not true for women. Yet the country is full of average (and below average men), many of whom have been socially conditioned to behave in very particular ways. Their spines have been removed.

An increasing number of young boys are experiencing gender dysphoria. Ask yourself, why is this the case?

Could it have anything to do with a comprehensive push to rid society of every traditionally masculine quality imaginable?

Just coincidence, I’m sure.

A world without real men is much easier to control. Though boring and stagnant.
