Men are at the center of every functional social structure. Though women are certainly essential for the preservation of any society, it is the men whose fate will shape the fate of a nation. I don’t wish to make any sexist implication when I make this point – what I am gesturing at is that the anti-West agenda, which seeks to deconstruct Western civilization and democratic values, has targeted men as the victims of a brutal, systematic, and unstoppable attack. In this piece, I’ll seek to demonstrate why this is the case, why I’m singling out men, and why we need to be careful about the implications of this meticulous plan.
You may seek to call me a misogynist as you’re reading this article, or you may simply call me a paranoid ideologue who will blindly defend and justify the existence of men – that is irrelevant to me. Men are the sustainers, and have always been. In simpler times, men had to hunt for food, and what they killed and brought home prolonged the survival of their family another day. As times went on, men did most of the difficult agricultural and industrial labor, mostly by virtue of their physical prowess. Much of our great philosophy and most of our prized inventions are attributed to ingenious men.Today, 76% of those in STEM are men, 89% of practicing engineers are men, 70% of physicians are men, 86% of Fortune 500 CEOs are men, and about 84-91% of math professors in the top 100 universities in the country are men. Again, mind what I’m saying here. I have no prejudices against women. Women dominate many invaluable fields, including nursing, education, psychology, English, and they are slowly equalizing in law.I am simply illustrating the immense value of men to the evolution and preservation of society. Now let’s proceed to the modern day.
Many of our progressive countries, owing to their feminist tendencies and even gynocentric urges, have challenged so-called patriarchal manhood with the intention of destroying it, or at least reforming it for the worse. In becoming obsessed with this framework, these nations have made male self-expression and male identity very difficult to understand or embrace.Feminist thinking in the academic spheres, in its initially noble goal of liberating women from blatant inequality, has become so entrenched in our schools and in society that womanhood has effectively overshadowed manhood. One can call this an ‘unfortunate accident’, a ‘trickle effect’ of the feminist paradigm, but it’s undeniable that the manner in which our nations have swallowed this pro-woman narrative has contributed to an uncontrollable anti-man one. I have no problem with critiquing patriarchy, but I have a severe issue with the blatant blame game that feminists play when it comes to men, especially white men, as though they are all part of a complicated conspiracy to bring women down – clearly, the opposite is true, since women have many unspoken privileges which men do not have in our society, which leads to men distrusting our system. These privileges range from the freedom to falsely accuse men of rape with almost no consequence, immunity to the law in cases where the woman is abusive, and the freedom to use sex as a bargaining tool. This is how the attack on men, and indirectly the West, begins to form: the dehumanization of the male identity. This is illustrated in our society’s disregard for male domestic violence victims (only 1 recently opened shelter in the U.S. exists for male victims, versus 1,500 for female victims), a lack of attention in the media or anywhere else for male homicide (76%) and suicide victims (80%), a disheartening amount of unequal custody cases (only 7% of men obtain custody, while 13% is shared), the complete disregard for the fact that almost all workplace deaths (94%) and combat deaths (99.9%) are attributed to men, the fear of alimony, particularly for a child who isn’t biologically the father’s, the fear of being jailed or socially ostracized for a false rape or domestic violence allegation, and the fear of a legal system that presupposes men to be the aggressors in almost all cases. These are talking points of Men’s Rights activists, as you may well know, and I only seek to rehearse them to remind you that men are, quite clearly, the disadvantaged class in society. It doesn’t help that feminists have completely disregarded these statistics when talking about oppression, and it doesn’t help that a ‘men’s studies’ course simply doesn’t exist.
But you might ask how this affects Western civilization. I’ll be quite concrete on this: the demoralization and dehumanization of the male identity inevitably leads to the destruction of the family unit. 66% of divorces in this country are filed by women, and every divorce is another family severed. The destruction of the family unit ensures that the birthrate lowers, and in effect that fewer children raised in this country, with its values, are born. All first-world countries suffer from birthrate problems, particularly Japan and Germany, and the feminist agenda, which emphasizes the deviance from traditionalism, is in effect promoting the decline of Western civilization. What’s surprisingly important, also, is the emphasis on race: whites, which are obviously the majority in the U.S. and most of Europe’s best countries, are in great population decline. 17 states in the U.S. now suffer from the death rate for whites exceeding the birthrate, and Germany is facing their highest birthrate in 33 years – because of the arrival of 900,000 refugees. I don’t have to make any assumptions about race, but you have to agree with me that the civilized territories of the U.S. and Europe that we call ‘first-world’ are, and have always been, predominantly white, yet now we face an epidemic of white decline. Why is this happening? Could it be that the obsessive progressivism, the emphasis on diversity, and the constant disregard for men, not to mention the fact that women have become pickier, more judgmental, and ‘liberated’, all contribute now to an atmosphere of ‘white decline’? Could it be, in fact, that this is one of the reasons that 7/10 of male suicides in the U.S. are by white, middle-aged men?
We should note that the problem is how feminism, in this 3rd wave of its iteration, has devolved into a mindless mess, deconstructing the family with the further intention of deconstructing male and female gender roles entirely! This postmodern problem, which burdens not only feminism, but also the societal dynamics between men and women, has effectively made men afraid to do what they used to do to find girlfriends and wives – date. Dating culture has become impossible for men, seeing as the bare minimum for what constitutes “harassment” has been raised to incomprehensible levels, and because women have exceeded men in educational attainment and income. Simply put, men are afraid of being men, seeing as Western society has normalized making fun of manhood. The consequence of this is perilous: more men stay single, start reading about movements like MGTOW and the Red Pill, start growing cynical of women and the legal system, and many simply go into ‘monk mode’, rejecting women entirely. This hurts women too, you must know. If women can’t find a partner, they can’t settle down, and in effect they become miserable. Studies say that women have gotten more and more depressed over the last 30 years. This means that the attack on men is most definitely an attack on the family, and that is an attack on the West.
The contradiction surrounding feminism is that it offers women an offer that could only be understood through doublethink: you can be an independent, full-time working woman, while being a wife with kids. You can be happy as a liberated party girl, having sex with whomever, but you can also settle down whenever you’re ready. Your bad decisions have no negative implications, and can always be deflected as the source of a patriarchy that keeps women down. Women have essentially been told by feminism: you can have anything you want without sacrifice, we promise, as long as you blame it on the men. Feminism and its influence has also normalized abortion, one of the most blatant ‘miracle cures’ for women. You have to be worried when worldwide, 40-50 million babies are aborted annually. I’m not against abortion, but I’m not blind to the fact that abortion is one of the causes of severe population decline – furthermore, if a woman makes a bad decision, this is feminism’s way of saying “don’t you worry, sister!”
Not only this, but because of the pressurized discussions and fears surrounding women, emphasizing them as the victims of violence and rape, men have been lost in translation. Every time you mention the issue of circumcision, which is still a relevant issue, you’re hit with “but what about female genital mutilation?” Every time you talk about male rape and domestic victims, the reaction is indifference at best and outright indignation at worst. Men are trivialized, yet they are expected to do the hardest jobs and make the greatest sacrifices for even the most average woman. Look at any snippet of the Steve Harvey Show where women are asked about what they want in a man. They’ll give you as many things as they can think of, many of which are contradictory: ‘nice’ and ‘rough’, ‘dominating’ and ‘cooperative’, ‘funny’ and ‘serious’, etc. I’ve heard this firsthand. They can judge men on dates, make assumptions just off of how they look, and that will confirm their impression for an entire night. Furthermore, the men are almost always paying for these dates: according to a study of 17,000 people, 84% of men and 58% of women say that men pay for ‘most dating expenses’, even when the relationship has been going on for some time. This assumes some old-fashioned principles about chivalry that are clearly ‘positive sexism’ for the woman, yet feminists will never cry about that – nor would they cry about not being required for the draft or unequal representation in mining/construction/factory jobs.
And let us not forget the influx of migrant populations openly invading Europe, bringing with them a regressive, ultra-conservative, anti-woman ideology, and in turn abusing the women of countries like Germany and Sweden – while the native-born Germans and Swedes can all but watch, seeing as any rebellion against these migrants will result in their being jailed, or slandered as ‘islamophobes’, or the like. The men, in having their agency as men stripped, have their agency as ‘Germans’ and ‘Swedes’ stripped as well. Germany is particularly notable in this, as its national identity is forever tainted by Holocaust guilt. If you can shame men by shaming their ancestors, you’ll have achieved the greatest destruction of the male identity – we can similarly use slavery in shaming the American white male identity. Any entity that prevents men from protecting their home is effectively preventing them from being men, which prevents them from doing their moral duty. Men are, and always have been, the balancing act for Western nations, since only they can represent the might of a country in its totality. That is why, in my honest opinion, the attack on male identity is an attack on the West. And behold, this is true in countries as Japan and South Korea as well: dwindling birth rates, a dying dating culture, and effeminate, demoralized men (remember that Japan doesn’t even have a military). This is not an accident, then.
Thus, the way to reverse the damage done on the West is clear: encourage the white and Asian populations to reproduce, push for a nationalistic love of one’s country that emphasizes manhood and the male persona, neutralize the threat from invading populations, and embrace the family unit once again. We do not need more progressivism, either, for that is exactly what gives way to the continuous tension between men and women. We need to remind men that they are men, that they should be proud of themselves, that they are the only reason these nations continue to hold firm. We should also make an effort to promote men’s rights more often, and inform the feminists, particularly the academics, that the discussion surrounding women’s rights is outdated and obsolete. We need to bring back some level of traditionalism, at least in the dynamics between men and women. We must absolutely fix the broken legal systems in countries like the U.S. and the U.K., both of which unequally favor women and disrespect men. Most of all, we need to stop hating ourselves.
You might have gotten a strange impression from this article, and I admit that the way I phrased it could’ve been better. But we must be cognizant of this imminent and constant threat – it’s now or never.
