White masculinity is a part of the problem, not a solution to it. This masculinity is complicit in the disgusting violence women (and others, such as LGBTI individuals) are subjected to in this country. Systematic denial of sexism and misogyny in white communities is an insult to all women – especially the white women who are forced to love and live with it.” ~Thorne Godinho. “The Uncomfortable Truth About White Masculinity“
MARCH AGAINST MISOGYNY
Last weekend was the now-infamous “Women’s March“, which saw large protests across the country and across the world in protest to new President Donald Trump and accusations of past misogynist behavior and alleged rape allegations. Other issues presented such as the ongoing battle between Republican legislators, and birth control and abortion advocates as well as organizations like Planned Parenthood, and the fear that access to birth control will be restricted (although this hasn’t actually happened). But undoubtedly, the majority of the focus was on the personage of President Trump himself and his supposed normalizing of what has been referred to as “rape culture“.
Now, I could and have criticized how mainstream this supposedly anti-establishment protest was, with major funding from big corporate-linked NGOs, non-stop media coverage, seemingly half of Hollywood getting out and speaking at the various events and even a spot on Saturday Night Live. Things like Madonna’s talking about wanting to “blow up the White House” and Ashley Judd delivering a hilariously ludicrous speech (supposedly written by a 19-year old) where she compared shock conversion therapy for gays (something no one is actually calling for in any legislative or executive action) to “gas chambers“, as well as making the tired comparison of Trump and his cabinet to Hitler and the Nazis (even though Trump is surrounded by Jews in both his family and his cabinet and is staunchly pro-Israel).
While the actual purpose of the Women’s March was somewhat nebulous, one of the biggest “triggers” for women has been this whole scandal around Trump and his infamous “pussy grabbing” remarks that got taped and released by a member of the Bush family. While the idea of personal space and physical sovereignty is a reasonable and just one, the hysteria generated around the tapes reached absurd levels, with women genuinely fearing their safety was at risk now that a “rapist” was in the White House. Of course, folks who write for and give credence to Cosmopolitan (who makes money off cosmetics that have been shown to give women cancer) either conveniently forgot, are in denial of, or are simply ignorant of the numerous rape allegations and charges brought against former President Bill Clinton throughout his political career.
But despite blatant inconsistencies in personal ideology often to the point of hypocrisy, and despite being a women’s rights movement that by-and-large only wants rights for those who think and believe as they do, the women (and men) in this movement are making themselves heard- with the help of Hollywood of course. However, although this particular belief system is common among celebrities and liberal urbanites, many people do not share their view. One such individual was a female combat veteran who recently posted on a social media forum in regards to the protest:
I’m a woman, a lover, a mother, a combat veteran who still wears a military uniform. I’ve been a mechanic since 2001. I’ve worked on farms, in construction and maintenance. I’ve never really had a girly job. I’ve thrived in males dominated occupations. I make just as much, if not more money than my male counterparts, in both the military (I am no longer active duty, I’m now national guard) and the civilian workforce. I think the women at this march are deluded and have lost their minds. I’ve worked with men my whole life. I’ve never been assaulted or accosted…. I’ve been around the world several times. Believe me, we as women have it damn good here in the states. Ask a Muslim woman if she gives a damn about a tampon tax or what her stance on abortion is. She will laugh at you. Mad bc a man said “grab her by the pussy?” You should hear the pure shit I say to my guys at work. “Don’t step on my dick, I won’t step on yours” I drop the f bomb like it’s a comma. I tell dick jokes, i fucked your mom jokes, I’ll fuck your wife better than you jokes, and yes, I’ve made “grab her by the pussy” jokes. News flash ladies, words are NOT assault. You want to be treated equal like a man but you want men to be more like women! … We have equal rights, the pay gap is a joke. Stop wearing fucking vagina hats and screaming like a lunatic. Find your inner woman and soothe her deluded rage. We are in no danger here. You want to protest women’s rights- go to the Middle East. Where female genitalia is mutilated, women are stoned for being raped, sold as sex slaves, brutalized, burned with acid and are forced to live with other real atrocities. We have become a sexual species of entitlement. I am ashamed of the way women act today.”
As someone who is from the northeast United States and has spent time in locker rooms and worked in butcher shops, warehouses, landscaping, and the restaurant industry, I can attest to the vulgarity that is inherent in male-dominant atmospheres. I can also attest to the often crude and abrasive way of speaking to one another that guys from the southern New England and New York/Philadelphia area in particular have when around other men. I can also attest to the fact that the vast majority of them are NOT rapists, just like the vast majority of men in general are NOT rapists. They may objectify and even womanize, but ACTUAL rape is another thing in and of itself. Rape is an action, not a set of personality traits, character flaws, or a tall-tale of sexual conquest made up or embellished just to impress your friends.
Now, what is “actual rape”? Webster’s defines rape as:
unlawful sexual activity and usually sexual intercourse carried out forcibly or under threat of injury against the will usually of a female or with a person who is beneath a certain age or incapable of valid consent because of mental illness, mental deficiency, intoxication, unconciousness, or deception”
But in the minds of many rape-culture awareness activists as well as in post-modernism and Neo-Marxism in general, definitions are flexible. Quite often, men who disagree with these 2nd and 3rd Wave Feminist views (especially White men) are guilty of a sort of “rape-by-proxy”. It is similar to the modern conversation around racism but instead of the offense being supporting institutionalized racism, the crime is supporting rape culture. And, similar to the conversation around racism, which has seen the definition of the word “racism” expand as a sort of umbrella term encompass any action that can potentially cause offence to a “person of color” as being “racist”; here, the word “racist” transforms into “sexist”, “misogynist”, or even “rapist”.
And besides being statistically questionable, when it does come down to actual rape in Western society, “rape culture” presents a politicized and often obfuscated and misdirected view of a problem, focusing on select cases while brushing over or ignoring others.
THE DREADED “ALPHA MALE”
A few months back I found myself in a bit of controversy when an article out of Cracked.com entitled “7 Reasons So Many Guys Don’t Understand Sexual Consent” came across my social media feed and I felt compelled (perhaps unwisely) to comment. Now it should first be noted that the website itself states that it is “America’s Only Humor Site“. Cracked initially began as a cartoon satire magazine much in the same style as “MAD Magazine” back in 1958 and ran until 2007. The article itself focused on aggressive/dominant male courting behavior being portrayed in movies (i.e. when Han Solo first kisses Leia in “Empire Strikes Back”), and how this was turning young men into rapists.
I proceeded to mock the article, referring to it as “recycled rape culture propaganda” and pointed out how “Cracked” was a satire publication and was not something that should be taken as serious journalism. In response I was called a “rapist” by the fellow who posted the article for challenging the point of view of himself and his cheering majority-female followers.
Despite scientific studies showing that a majority of women are in fact attracted to aggressive, dominant, and even narcissistic ego-driven men, the rape culture “awareness” movement unrelentingly demonizes men who possess even a moderate amount of these attributes. However, archaeological research and historical anthropology suggests that like other pack animals, it would have been the human “alpha males” that would have been tasked with procreation among the females as they had the strongest, most desirable traits, while the other men would have been left out of the genetic loop, so to speak. However, at some point, the beta males were able to win what was perhaps the first “men’s rights movement”.
Another study suggests that women are attracted to certain types of men at different times of her fertility cycle. The study found when ovulating, the women wanted more masculine-looking, assertive, “manly men”. However, when not ovulating, women were more attracted to “beta-type” men and “nice guys”, who were generally softer-spoken, softer-bodied, and “non-threatening”.
Evolutionary psychology shows why women would potentially be drawn to this ideal of the non-threatening domesticated man who helps around the house, raises the kids, and does exactly what she needs/wants him to do to further her own interests. However, this is contrasts to the man who is building, hunting, and fighting with and among other men to ensure the success and survival of his tribe.
What this all simply comes down to is how women’s interests and men’s interests can differ at times, which has been discussed, debated, fought over and dumbfounded millions of men and women for millennia, and probably isn’t going anywhere until men and women have had all behavioral and perhaps even biological differences between them erased. Differing interests are not a “bad” thing, they’re just a thing.
But natural drives and impulses are always targets for manipulation, and differing interests of different groups of people are traditionally exploited by dominators in divide-and-rule strategy. The natural differences of self-interest that cyclically arise between men and women are manipulated by pro-globalist institutions through ideologies like New Wave Feminism and its rape culture, and largely becomes about the “need” to train men to behave as women would have them behave, because men behaving as men is dangerous.
But women like men who take risks and “live dangerously”. Recent studies confirm what Hollywood picked up a long time ago, which is that women have this innate attraction to “the bad boy” character. Unfortunately, more often than not, the Hollywood version becomes a caricature of itself as it becomes, well, “Hollywoodized”. The perfect example of this persona is the modern day black hip-hop artist, with the cash, bling, cars and hos persona, rapping about the aforementioned things as well as dealing drugs, getting arrested or shot, etc., while a crowd of scantily-clad women twirk and fawn all over him.
Of course, this particular type of “alpha-male” persona is typically pardoned because it is being demonstrated by a “POC” (“person of color”). Among the Neo-Marxist/Second/Third Wave Feminist crowd, it is WHITE men who are believed to be rednecks, Christians, “Alt-Right”, or otherwise evil racist, xenophobic, Islamophobic, anti-Semitic, homophobic, transphobic, KKK, Nazi-Fascists that are the source of all “evil” in the world. This is ironic as the increasingly popular image of the “average white guy” in film, television and commercials is that of a bumbling, inept, spineless buffoon who couldn’t fight his way out of a wet paper bag, and even the most fringe Left tends to resonate with pop-culture as it is overwhelmingly “liberal” by its nature.
SEX ADDICTION CULTURE
All that being said, there is a kernel of truth surrounding the cries of “rape culture”, but it isn’t so much an issue with “aggressive masculinity” or even rape, per se, but rather the unquestionably real problem of the perversion and degeneration of the nature of sexuality in general in modern culture (much of which is lauded as “good”).
We have elite groups of rich and powerful globalist Jews, Arabs, Africans, Asians, Latinos, and yes, Whites, taking part in human trafficking and ritual sex abuse, with little or no recourse until they upset the wrong person and everything “just happens” to come out in the news. There is a real problem worldwide with sex trafficking and the sexual abuse and exploitation of children, women, as well as men. A lot of the people that take part in this are very high profile (and many are “progressives”).
Simultaneously, these elitists and moguls push various forms of sexuality onto the immature psyches of children and adults through the various media outlets they own and control. These “children” then act in a sort of mirror of the sexually degenerate ways as their “adult” rulers. The result of all this is a sex-addiction culture where people prey objectify one another and prey upon another mentally, emotionally and sometimes physically, while simultaneously playing the victim in all of it.
In America, we have boys being sexually mutilated at birth (and for decades this was done without anesthetic) by an institutionalized Abrahamic ritual, while hyper-sexualized and even pornographic themes bleed into all aspects of pop culture. Boys are taught to be dense, vapid womanizing douchebags, or castrated and cuckedmanginas, who are completely apologetic for what little masculinity they have left.
Men are also the primary targets of pornography producers. The combination of the 24/7 access through the internet and the increasing phenomenon of men who find a sort of safety and security in porn and a resentment towards women and feminism. The result is an addiction phenomenon that is destroying lives in droves and is being called “the new crack“. The result is men who are “checking out” on women and on life. This dilemma will only get worse as technology advances unless something is done to shift the culture and western society in a different direction.
Meanwhile, girls are taught how it’s “liberating” to be promiscuous and act like a stripper or prostitute- twerking at the school dance to their favorite mainstream hip-hop stripper song- and then posting videos of it online.
A favorite of the rape culture argument is the prominence of the aggressive alpha, (aka “rapist”) male in film and TV, and blames this on the “white” male Hollywood establishment. I’m sure many of my readers are aware of the error in labeling the Hollywood establishment (that also own the news corporations) as “white“. The Hollywood establishment consists largely of members of the same tribe that birthed and promoted Neo-Marxist Critical Theory as well as 2nd/3rd Wave Feminism in academia, control much of Hollywood as well as the porn industry, and have since its inception.
Now I have written at length on the role of the media in shaping the behaviors and beliefs of a population, however, the spin the rape culture crowd gives it is that its all “white men” running the media and putting these messages out there to other young (white) men, creating a sort of “White He-man Woman Hater’s Club”. In truth, the world presented by Hollywood cannot be truly referred to as the creation of White European culture. Hollywood created a different version of “America”, authored by a people who saw themselves as perpetual outsiders in the “White” Western world who admittedly wanted to craft their own version of America. This was by its very nature going to be a different vision as that of traditional European Christian/Light Masonic culture, as they were a culturally and ethnically (some more than others) different people. Prize-winning Jewish-American writer, Joel Stein stated himself:
As a proud Jew, I want America to know about our accomplishment. Yes, we control Hollywood. Without us, you’d be flipping between ‘The 700 Club’ and ‘Davey and Goliath’ on TV all day.”
In any case, there is no denying the post-World War II generations became ever-more influenced by the media with the advent of TV in people’s homes, this in turn, shaped the behaviors of the people who idolized the larger-than-life personalities they saw on TV and associated “good feelings” with. This in turn, helped to shape and steer the culture in thinking and acting a certain way. Even Vice President Joe Biden stated how Hollywood was more important than anything else in shaping public attitudes on things like gay marriage, etc. And needless to say, the messages portrayed by this media are ALWAYS favorable to the interests of their corporate sponsors and their dogma of globalism.
As the years went on, and one generation passed to another, more and more topics and situations and manners of dress that had been “taboo” in previous generations of were put on TV. Traditional “European-American” culture was slowly replaced on TV with Cultural Marxism and general amorality. At 36, I can certainly remember a time when it would be unthinkable to have the sort of overt sexuality on TV that is now found on network TV. We are even beginning to see the normalization of child sexualization and pedophile culture on network television.
Meanwhile, anything that is the least bit of a remnant of more traditional European-American Christian/Light Masonic ideals is now seen as “uncool”, “racist” and “intolerant” and portrayed in a host of unfavorable ways, including domestic terrorists. This separation of ideals will inevitably only continue to grow as Chinese investors buy controlling shares in Hollywood studios and produce films antagonistic to the current administration as well as traditional American culture and values. It is perhaps worth noting that Chinese culture has not historically been a “friend to women”.
It is probably not really necessary to point out the numerous sex scandals that have come out over the years about various Hollywood stars and execs. From drugs and wild parties, to prostitutes, to the sexual abuse and pedophilia that is rife throughout the entertainment industry. But perhaps ironically, the modern sexually liberated feminist ideology sold to women through such media productions as “Sex in the City” and “Orange is the New Black“, is as degrading towards men and masculinity as the hyper-sexualized propaganda aimed at males could be said to degrading towards women.
America’s real problem is not this “white male rape culture” that is spoon-fed to us; America’s problem is an across-the-board deviant, hedonistic sex culture coupled with a population who are encouraged to remain as children, being coddled and cared for, and by and large unaccountable for their emotions and actions. This effects everyone regardless of gender or race. What is known as “rape culture” is an obfuscated version of a component of this larger sex-addiction culture.
In the forward to his 1932 dystopian novel, “Brave New World”, author Aldous Huxley- brother of UNESCO founder Julian Huxley and contemporary of Anglo-American establishment elites, pointed as to why such a culture would be desirable in an age of greater centralized corporate and government control:
As political and economic freedom diminishes, sexual freedom tends compensatingly to increase. And the dictator… will do well to encourage that freedom. In conjunction with the freedom to daydream under the influence of dope and movies and the radio, it will help to reconcile his subjects to the servitude which is their fate.”
In the west, sex and sexuality are being pushed at earlier and earlier ages in both schools as well as the mental health system. With a whole host of new gender pronouns being created seemingly every week, children are being taught that as the way to create and define your identity– that thing that establishes who you are as an individual. When this happens, one’s sexual orientation, preferences, and fetishes become the primary definers of who that person is and what they represent.
However, there are consequences to using one’s sexuality as the foundation of their identity (even if for some it is a secret), and it starts on the individual level which in turn effects society and culture. If you want to see the results of using sexuality your identity, go to a twelve step meeting with a group of sex addicts (a great many of which identify as gay or bi), and listen to them talk about how this very perspective and belief system absolutely wreaked havoc on their lives. The suffocating desperation of the sex addict is one that mirrors the muffled screams of a populace that has been by-and-large sexually poisoned.
The “Sexual Revolution” pushed into the mainstream by Jewish-American sexologist Alfred Kinsey and others, has turned out to be a form of slow acting poison. One only needs to examine Kinsey and the “fruits of his labors” to see this. While repressive attitudes are harmful to healthy sexuality, so is unrestrained hedonism and an obsession on all things sexual. A healthy balance must be found, and unfortunately we are far, far from it – and the further we move away from living in harmony with the Laws of Nature and Creation as well as our own evolutionary makeup, the more difficult it will be to find it.
The world of the sex addict is very much a microcosm of what is happening on a larger scale across western society. It was seen in Weimar Germany. It spawned the Sexual Revolution. It is the Carnival of Ishtar; the festival of the Whore of Babylon– brought in by those that seek to use her destructive power to tear down what’s left of western society until nothing is sacred and nothing is left. Where a range of sexual “freedoms” are used as candy to entice the population into seeking a life of never-ending self-gratification. Meanwhile, institutions that held Western society together, like the nuclear family, are demonized and torn down. The sex addict goes in search of selfish pleasure to numb the paint of his life- and so has the Western world.
BLAME THE WHITE GUYS
Western “Neo-Feminism” and its rape culture narrative is viewed by many as hen-peckish and hysterical, and turns off many who would be allies (such as myself) in larger-scale issues such as sex-trafficking or the pushing of porn culture on the youth via the media. Unfortunately, this paranoid “rapists under the bed” mentality does little to legitimize the cause of New Wave Feminism in the eyes of “cis-hetero-normal” white men with any sort of dignity, and instead causes many to feel turned-off to the cause of women in general, and have in turn developed their own sense of victimhood.
The rape culture narrative presents the lie that western culture, which was to a large extent designed, built and DEFENDED by white males – the culture that provided the safety and security feminism could not exist without- is inherently evil and oppressive, and needs to be dismantled. Meanwhile, Neo-Feminism curiously aligns itself with a belief system that is its anti-thesis, with the height of irony perhaps being one of the lead organizers of the recent Women’s March being a pro-Sharia law advocate.
Of course, the argument in favor of this alliance is often about how Sharia law and Islam can be interpreted and practiced peacefully and with respect for “women’s rights”. However, when looking at how Sharia is actually implemented in every country that adheres to it, high-minded idealism gives way to the hard fact that when implemented, it becomes a truly oppressive system with a REAL rape culture. The fact that Neo-Feminists have aligned with this ideology is nothing short of mind-boggling and reveals just how deep-seated their hatred and resentment of western culture and “white men” (daddy issues much?) goes.
Meanwhile, the majority of the Feminist community in Europe remains silent and in denial about the real issue of skyrocketing sexual assaults by Muslim migrants, who are taught culturally to objectify women in a very open and real way. There is a real problem with migrants raping women in the streets of Europe, which arises from the general problem of incompatible identity groups and cultures co-habiting the same space.
To flat out blame western masculinity and white men as the oppressors of women is to ignore history. Egalitarian relations between sexes date back to pre-Christian Europe, institutions like Chivalry, and the scientific and social progress of the Enlightenment– all of these things are a unique product of White Europeans and were institutions built and protected by White European men and were the things that made the early positive advancements feminism possible. In places and times where this sort of social stability, order, and prosperity does not exist, you revert to a system where men and women serve more traditional roles (men hunt/defend; women gather/nurture) out of necessity rather than preference. When the tribe across the river has come to kill you and steal your resources, you aren’t worried about being “equal”, you’re worried about surviving.
Now it is certainly true that the practice of taking/raping the women of a rival tribe has been universal across races, ethnicities and cultures for millennia, the act of raping women within one’s OWN tribe or culture is not. In the West in particular, rape IS NOT culturally or legally acceptable among the general population and it has been this way for a long, long time. Much of what is referred to as the “misogynist” culture of the west is actually the product of the Mediterranean/Semitic world and was gradually imposed upon Europeans through the influence of Abrahamism, however it was never an organic part of White European culture.
Now just because I am taking a stance opposed to this rape culture narrative, my intent is not to deny any fault on the part of White men or men in general over the millennia for any sort of abusive or exploitative behavior toward women, or the suffering women have endured as a result. What I am saying is that the conversation around the new “masculine feminist” ideal is less about “equality” between the sexes, and more about men becoming effeminate and blubbering over vapid pop culture, while women “run things”. What I am saying is that the nature and focus of this “rape culture” argument is inherently divisive and socially destructive.
And most of all, I object to this behavior training being pushed in school curriculum K-12 and then thoroughly in college. This is not about creating “sensitive men”; it is about creating men who are neurotically henpecked into being weak, subservient and obedient to anyone who tells him what to do. It is about creating men who are not a threat to the State and using women to “keep these men in line”.
This is about making normal men non-threatening to the established order (i.e. “The Patriarchy”). This is especially true of white men, who have been particularly troublesome servants with their high-minded ideals and extreme knack for invention and creative problem-solving. These men need to be rendered obsolete – and what better way to do so than to get them to believe it themselves.
The dialogue around rape culture becomes about blaming and demonizing men who possess any sort of remotely “aggressive” or “alpha” male characteristics. The result of this are boys who learn to be weak mentally and emotionally to the point of basically being emasculated. This is done in the same spirit as young boys essentially being force-medicated for not sitting still.
“THERE ARE NO VICTIMS, ONLY VOLUNTEERS”
The above phrase is from Syoc Kali blade master, “Tuhon” Tom Kier, (although it was originally stated by Harvard professor Robert Anthony). Basically what it means is that if you are a fully-functioning adult, then it is your responsibility to be alert and prepared for any situation you find yourself in- nobody else’s. So, while there is certainly victimization of women (and men) going on, to treat the world as one where women are completely blameless for the negative circumstances that occur in their lives is folly. While one of the major tenets of 2nd/3rd Wave Feminism and its rape culture creation is that you are to never question or “blame” the “victim” of an alleged sexual assault regardless of evidence or circumstances, this has also come to mean that there is zero accountability on the part of the “victimized” adult for the situations they chose to put themselves in, the substances they chose to take, or the company they chose to keep.
I also know this may also seem counter-intuitive for the men out there that still have that drive to protect women that nature instilled, but the hard truth of nature is that ALL physically and mentally able ADULTS are ultimately responsible for the conditions of their lives, how they react to them and their PREPAREDNESS for them-regardless of how unlikely they may believe or want to believe they are. The gazelle does not argue with the lion or some council of animals about the ethics of the lion’s actions; she either gets away or she is dinner.
Now does this mean that as a man it isn’t your duty to interject when you see a woman being assaulted? Absolutely not. Rape is NEVER acceptable, and maintaining boundaries is always important – for both women AND men. Nor is it tasteful or productive in any sense to trivialize the actual suffering that anyone experienced during such and as a result of such a trauma. But disagreeing with and pointing out fallacies and inconsistencies in the belief system one develops as a result of said trauma is not the same as mocking the actual trauma. This association is the creation of the mind consumed with resentment, fear and self-pity.
And while to say it is “someone’s fault” they got raped is to imply one side was at fault and one wasn’t is wrong pretty much all the time – to deny one’s own responsibility as an adult for being able to defend themselves and keep themselves situationally safe and aware is to deny being an adult. You cannot be a strong, independent victim of oppression. So rather than lament about a “White Male Patriarchy” and its “rape culture” that’s “out to get me”, learn how to take control of the situations you put yourself in and learn how to adequately defend yourself, because there’s a good chance that you might be the only person you can count on to be there regardless.
Namaste and God Bless.
