Merry Part

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:

Validation – Who Needs It?

Too excellent a question to not reblog.
Come join the discussion!

Spawny's Space

A recent comment exchange here with Tarn led to the question: “Who needs validation”?  It was suggested that women do need it; and that some build their entire lives around it (e.g. Facebook).  But what about men?  How much do they need it? What exactly is validation and what is its purpose?    It would seem that validation is social reward(s) (note that they are cheap to produce and distribute) that a group gives to its members for whatever reason.  It used to be that society as a group socially rewarded members that contributed to the society.   This is not quite the same thing as respect.  Respect is an attitude, validation is a reward.

In my personal case, being an INTX, I grew up more or less disliked by my schoolmates.  Part of it had to do with the ability of INTs to see right through people.  Even…

Reasons to go MGTOW: Ms. Entitled

Francis uses a YouTube video to illustrate what happens when you go from having preferences to simply being entitled. Well done, my friend. Well done.

Francis Roy's Blog

You make a number of errors. The first is that we care about what you think of our genitals. The second is that we somehow have some moral duty to inform you about the shape of our genitals. The third is that we have some duty to “do whatever you want.”  “My main goal is to make you happy.” One has must be a sick person to either say it, or expect it a potential partner to say so. “She is the most important thing.” Entitled much? You aren’t “the most important thing.” You may or may not be important to him, but he is the most important person in his life. You either agree to walk your paths side-by-side, or you expect abject servility.

If I were generous, I could stretch and say that what you’re hoping for is open and honest communication. But that would be overly generous…

Women Nowadays: a litany of horrors, GoodMenAmongUs a balm

Introducing the youtube channel GoodMenAmongUs, created by our very own Francis Roy. A great reminder for all that a lot of men are fantastic people in their own right. Check it out and subscribe!

Francis Roy's Blog

There was once a YouTube channel called “ViolentWomenAmongUs” that had some 1500 to 2000 news clippings of women perpetrating horrible deeds. It was taken down. Another has taken its place. I don’t know if it is the same person.

The channel, like this one, is soul-sickening and rage inducing in its variety, persistence and sheer mass. Here is a more recent example.

Whereas the previous channels are an important resource to help re-balance the notion that women are precious, special, victimized princesses incapable of anything than goodness and light, it wasn’t enough.

I was so affected by the channel’s content that I had decided to create my own channel: GoodMenAmongUs *

https://www.youtube.com/user/GoodMenAmongUs

Where our society tells us that men are horrible, violent, abusive rapists, I felt the need to show the other side of that coin. the Good Men Amongst Us channel is designed as a soul-balm to those who…

How to Handle the PPPs (Predatory Promiscuous Princesses)

New post by my dear friend, Cill.
What does one do when confronted with hyper-entitled women who are literally messing up your life? Comments over there, come join the conversation.

Spawny's Space

To all men and women here:

What do you think about this scenario:

You are wearing suit and tie on your way to a friend’s wedding, to be his Best Man. A van stops beside you in the street. Seven young women pile out of it and surround you. You keep walking, which necessitates bumping against them. They ask you to go with them in the van. You say, “I have to be somewhere else. Maybe another time.”

They close in. You attempt to cross the street to evade them. Everywhere you turn they stand in your way. They are enjoying it and expect you to be enjoying it too. You manage to get a glimpse of your watch. You’re going to be late. CCTV cameras are on you. If you manhandle them you’ll be done for assault or worse. Their hands are all over you now. They are laughing…

The Men’s Rights Movement is not the inverse of Feminism

A great post by Francis detailing how the Men’s Rights Movement is similar to the Women’s Rights Movement…not Feminism. Equality really is for everyone…

Francis Roy's Blog

This is a comment that I had left to an interlocutor on social media. It is, I think, I good and relatively short introduction to the difference between the Men’s Rights Movement, Feminism and why so any Men’s Rights Activists are anti-Feminist as well.

I’d like to shorten this to an elevator pitch. I welcome your feedback.

The men’s rights movement is not the inverse of Feminism. It is not “Feminism for men.” That there was once a woman’s rights movement that eventually gave way to Feminism, does not imply that men who strive for equivalent rights for men (such as gaining reproductive rights) does not mean that there is an equivalent, but sex-reversed mental framework.

A refresher. Feminism’s three phases can be simplified to this: 1. Fighting for actual rights in law. 2. Re-examining women’s roles and sense of identity relative to society. 3. Trying to re-write cultural…

Women Throw The SMP Completely Out Of Whack

Excellent post by my dear blogger friends Molly and Cill. Come join the conversation!

Spawny's Space

Cill’s note #1: My 19 year old cousin Molly wanted to write this post. Although she is brilliant, words are not her strong suit. She asked me to take her draft and reword it, which I have done.

Here is the first thing:
Men are fairly accurate and realistic about their ratings in the SMP. They rate approximately 50% of women to be average or above. Women are inaccurate and unrealistic, judging a mere 20% of men to be average or above. A woman of average appeal thinks she competes for men within the top 20%. In a scale of 1 to 10, a woman of 5 thinks she’s on a par with a man of 8. Women are out of whack to the extent of 250% (50 / 20). That.Is.Huge. This phenomenon is so well known, it can be verified with a simple search on the internet.

Yet another reason to go MGTOW

A disheartening, but incredibly valid, post from Francis.
Paternity fraud is a type of resource slavery, and a horrible lie to ensnare a man’s time, money, and even love.

Francis Roy's Blog

Interview With Woman Who Sell Positive Pregnancy Tests Online

And this is yet another reason I choose to go MGTOW. People lie. There are few things as damaging and harmful to a man as being lied to about the provenance of one’s child.

UK government creates new fund for male rape victims

The UK is finally acknowledging the fact that men and boys are rape victims, and are deserving of help. It’s about time…

Toy Soldiers

The United Kingdom has a sordid history of failing to acknowledge and address sexual violence against men and boys. Many cases of sexual violence against males are not prosecuted under the rape statutes, including offenses against boys. Women cannot face rape charges under UK law. The National Rape Crisis Network excludes organizations at assist male victims. All those things works against efforts to help abused men and boys.

However, the UK government recently decided to grant money to the Male Rape Support Fund:

Male victims of rape are to be supported with a new £600,000 government fund.

Twelve charities to be given money from the new Male Rape Support Fund were announced earlier by Victims Minister Mike Penning.

He said nationally about 75,000 men were victims of sexual assault in 2012-13, but few went to the police for help because the crime was “taboo”.

The fund will support the…

A letter to Tamara Kreinin of the The David & Lucile Packard Foundation

Men deserve to have the same reproductive choices as women. If more letters helps this happen, you can bet I’ll be writing one soon.

Francis Roy's Blog

Some time ago, The Parsemus Foundation made a request on their mailing list of their subscribers to write a letter. The David & Lucile Packard Foundation had generously granted $50,000 to The Parsemus Foundation to help them with the development of Vasalgel.

They had asked

Help us thank Packard Foundation!

We got the check! It’s hard to believe — Vasalgel’s first foundation grant. Packard Foundation is the first foundation (other than little Parsemus Foundation, which has been carrying the weight for almost 5 years) to stand up and say men deserve reproductive rights too — and to put their money where their mouth is, to the tune of $50,000! It’ll help keep us afloat through manufacturing and testing — and we think if they like what they see in terms of how we handle this grant, they might get behind Vasalgel in a bigger way later.

But our biggest fan…

What If There Is A God?

The type of logical thinking that shows why atheists and Pagans tend to get along better than atheists/Pagans and Christians do. It doesn’t matter to me if someone believes in the Lady and Lord or not…only that they are moral people who try to do good in the world.

myatheistlife

There are people that do not understand my position on belief. Perhaps it is time to explain it again.

Atheism simply defined is, “Someone who LACKS BELIEF in a god or gods.”  So as an atheist I would never claim to KNOW that there are no gods.  In this context atheism is nothing more than the rejection of the proposition, “a god or god’s exist.”  It is not the positive statement, “there is no god.”

http://myatheistlife.files.wordpress.com/2014/12/8ec7d-atheists-live.png

As an atheist I agree completely. I further posit that the probability of a god is zero. Further, if a god exists and that god is like the description of the god of Abraham that god is not worthy of my desire, accolades, or worship. If there is a god that exists as described by deists it does not care what words I use nor who I sleep with and how. If a god exists…

Tarnished

Unfortunate Virgin, and his post about our date a few months ago. If you aren’t following him already, you honestly should.

The (Formerly) Unfortunate Virgin

For the longest time I’ve been seeking a serious, long-term relationship, convinced that’s what I really want.  But the more I think about it, the more I realize that it’s not what I want at all.  At least not right now.  I’ve grown so accustomed to being single and I relish my freedom and independence.  Not to mention that I’m so busy with work and extra-curricular activities that a relationship would just suck up my remaining time.  So while I don’t really want someone to share my life with just yet, it would be nice to have someone to occasionally do fun things with.  And stick my penis into.

In other words, I’ve decided I’m looking for a friend with benefits.

Friends With Benefits: Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake

These feelings began their distant rumblings several months ago, intensifying when I came across this post by fellow blogger Tarnished Sophia.  She has a long-term monogamous FWB, and the more I…

Those that hit, shouldn’t be immune from being hit back…

This is why I love Ms. Goldberg. It’s not the first time she has spoken the truth, and it likely won’t be the last.

“Don’t hit anybody!” she says…what a novel idea! No, men shouldn’t hit women. But then, women shouldn’t hit men either. Let’s all just get away from this automatic violence and recognize that problems are solved with words, not fists.

I have never hit, kicked, or slapped anyone…man or woman…in my 30 years of life thusfar, other than when goofing around. And you know what? When my guy friends “punch” me back, it’s what I was expecting would happen and I’m happy that I’m enough of one of the guys that they treat me the same.

Ms. Goldberg is correct: You cannot hit someone, whether playing around or attempting to harm, and not assume you’re going to be hit back.

stonerwithaboner

Look at how those femanzi womyn think equality means being able to hit someone because they have a penis but they aren’t allowed to hit back….

Only one woman was rational here…
