This is my last post for the forseeable future, all. I’ll still be around commenting, but even that I’m going to try to keep to a minimum. People are still free to read and leave comments, and I can still be reached by email if anyone so wishes, but a break is required to preserve my sanity. I will not be checking my blog more than once or twice a week, so if it takes me a while to respond, don’t worry.
Why am I doing this? Well, as I’m sure some of you know, the manosphere can be a toxic place. There’s a lot of negativity, towards women of course but also towards various types of men…the opposite of the feminist sphere, as it were. There’s little, if any, place for true open discussion: You’re either for men, or for women. No egalitarians or humanists need apply seems to be the dish of the day regardless of where you are online.
But this wears you down if you surround yourself with it everyday. Or maybe that only happens if you give a crap about your fellow human beings? If you already believe we’re going to hell in a handbasket there’s no reason to work for change. Just sit back and reap the benefits you can and let the rest burn.
Well, that’s not me. I don’t want to let anything burn unless it means that the regrowth can start right away…but it’d be better if it didn’t crumble at all. The system needs fixing, not a demolition. I’m going to take a week or two, get my head back in a postive place, and actually see about doing things in real life again. Volunteer more, throw myself into getting my business proposals done, play my videogames and read my books, get egalitarian discussions flowing with like-minded folks, do some research I’ve been holding off on. In other words, living my life while being the change I want to see in my community. Working for equality for everyone, not just one sex or the other.
So, here’s a goodbye for now. I hope all of my readers continue on their own paths to the best of their abilities, and that they succeed in whatever they do. I must now attempt to do the same.
Oh, and remember:
