It was a surprise to come across this article recently, it did a great job covering the real problems which your regular mainstream media outlets will overlook. It lists ten factors which is leading to the emasculation of modern men, and we know that women in this era are much more masculine than ever before.
Here’s a run down of the article
Men are facing a full frontal assault on their rights, health and culture like never before. The war on masculinity has never been so brutal – but it’s not a war being waged by women. The attack is coming directly from the top, as the establishment desperately attempts to emasculate and disempower men in order to force women to be more dependent on the state, thereby enabling more power to be centralized and aiding the growth of big government.
Good summary, although I do believe the current culture does play a part in the loss of masculinity (Which women partake in).
It lists 10 reasons which lead to the decline in masculinity
1. Falling Fertility
Sperm counts amongst men have significantly decreased over the last half century and particularly over the last 25 years. In some European countries, sperm counts have dropped by as much as a third since 1989
No surprises here, modern diets definitely are not increasing testosterone levels in men. It goes on to list exposure to pesticides and chemicals within processed foods as other factors leading to lower sperm counts.
2. Chemical Warfare “Feminizing” Boys
Exposure to phthalates, which are found in many plastics, is “feminizing” boys by blocking normal male testosterone and causing genital abnormalities, according to scientists
The future does indeed look bleak. It starts young, in boys, as we see here.
3. Degradation of Positive Masculine Role Models
Whereas 50 years ago, advertising, Hollywood and television was filled with examples of positive masculine role models that young men could look up to, today’s entertainment industry routinely portrays men as clueless and bumbling oafs at best (think Homer Simpson, Everybody Loves Raymond, Married With Children) or at worst as aggressive sexual predators
Yeah no surprises here. It’s not James Bond or Indiana Jones anymore that kids idolise, its some unfit herb whose wife controls him like a child. We can also thank “WOW just WOW’d” feminists for yelling out male role models as “sexist!” and “creeps”
4. Metrosexual Malaise
Second wave feminism was a creation of the establishment itself and at its core has little whatsoever to do with genuine concern about women’s rights. Radical feminism deliberately confuses gender roles and makes young men apprehensive about exercising their masculinity for fear of being seen as overbearing or aggressive towards women.
Like I said, “pansexual”, “sapiosexual”, “cis gender”, “binary construct”, confused much?
5. Cultural Marxism
Establishment-controlled second wave feminism also advances the doctrine of cultural marxism, which claims that oppression emerges from patriarchal society and culture, and not the state. Governments love cultural marxism because it absolves them of blame.
Yup, Feminists screech so loudly about patriarchy oppressing them.
6. The ‘Men are Paid More’ Myth
The establishment promulgates the myth that men are paid more than women because of discrimination, feeding into feminist doctrines about patriarchal systems oppressing women in the workplace. In reality, the “wage gap” of around 19 per cent between the two sexes in the United States is explained by a number of reasons that have nothing to do with discrimination, including the fact that men work more hours and men seek less desirable jobs that pay higher. As a result, men account for 93% of workplace deaths despite being only 54% of the workforce. 94% of workplace suicides every year are also men. The establishment buries these shockingly high male workplace fatality figures because they completely contradict the myth that the jobs market discriminates against women.
Every “Feminist” brings up the bullshit gender wage gap, whilst conveniently ignoring the intricate details.
7. The “Privilege” Trap
Statists, collectivists and their mouthpieces in the media and the establishment claim that western men (in particular white men) cannot express a valid opinion on any issue related in any way to a “minority” (such as feminism or immigration) because they have “privilege”. The “privilege” talking point is a stunt through which liberals and feminists attempt to shut down free speech. In essence they are asserting the ludicrous notion that a man’s viewpoint has no value because of the colour of his skin, his gender or his country of origin. This is an inherently racist position, yet it is routinely used by leftists to shout down their ideological adversaries and silence male voices.
Well stated, also you’ll notice it’s women these days that have been conditioned by the culture to behave in a manner that is so “privileged”
8. The Legal System Discriminates Against Men
In both divorce and child custody proceedings, it is widely acknowledged that courts heavily favor women and discriminate against men. Men are routinely hit with onerous alimony payments even if women are capable of working and earning a good paycheck. Men only receive custody of their children in around 10 per cent of divorce cases in the United States. The ironic thing about this system is that it has primarily been instituted by other men, emphasizing again how the war on men is being waged not by women, but by the primarily male-dominated establishment itself.
Feminists weep and cry to change laws as they are outdated and not up to speed with modern times, yet men are being divorce raped on a daily basis with, what? outdated laws..
9. Masculinity as a Dirty Word
Dissident feminist Camille Paglia recently wrote a Wall Street Journal piece in which she warned, “What you’re seeing is how a civilization commits suicide.” Paglia was referring to how the emancipation of masculine virtues by the establishment threatens to create massive destabilization in society due to less and less men being able to fill traditionally “masculine” roles in the jobs market. Paglia points to schools cutting recess, the effort to deny the biological distinctions between men and women, and the left’s characterization of controversial opinions as “hate speech” as examples of how masculinity is being deliberately eroded. “Masculinity is just becoming something that is imitated from the movies. There’s nothing left. There’s no room for anything manly right now,” warns Paglia, adding that young men have, “no models of manhood.”
Being a cultured, feminised, hipster “male” is more desired than being “masculine”
10. Domestic Abuse Against Men
Whereas women have numerous safety nets to turn to if they become victims of domestic abuse, men have virtually none, despite the fact that domestic abuse against men is a huge and growing problem. In the UK for example, 44 per cent of domestic abuse victims are male, while more married men suffer abuse at the hands of their spouse than married women. While domestic abuse against women is constantly highlighted by the mass media, domestic abuse against men is a complete non-issue.
We keep hearing women screaming about domestic abuse, cause you know, it can ONLY ever happen to them, yeah?
The list could go on and on but the decline of masculinity is real.
When men start to behave like women and women like men, you know society is going against nature. Messing with the forces of nature will mean that nature will mess with you too. Nature is a powerful thing, and you’ll lose if you go against it.
