A stunning call to action, for Christian men and women, by two wonderful women, both named Leila. These are our values as opposed to the ones asserted in the last post. Rise up!

Bitch McConnell must be part libertarian because he’s obviously smoking something. Mumbling stupidly about the hoax, “McConnell responded, ‘As a Republican man, as soon as it was my turn, I took the vaccine. I would encourage all Republican men to do that.‘” Republican men? Huh? At this extraordinarily late hour, any male still left in the GOP is obviously a tranny, a complete idiot, or hitting the bong with Bitch.
Shut up, Bitch!
This fits nicely with PCR’s earlier scheduled encapsulation of the fall of our Nation. Read DeGroot’s analysis of the collapse of happiness in America, particularly among the young.
This situation has several causes, all social in nature. Marriage, friendship, religious attendance, and sex are all correlated to higher levels of happiness, and with the exception of friendship, these are in decline. Why? I think the short answer is what I will call the autonomy paradox. There are sometimes good reasons for rebelling against the mores of the past. There are sometimes good reasons for having greater individual autonomy. The trouble is that such changes tend to produce new problems, and are often averse to preserving social cohesion. We must then find ways to deal with those new problems, and to achieve greater social cohesion, nor will the past—or present!—necessarily furnish adequate means for these efforts.
“There is nothing in political liberalism or individual autonomy that can teach the sexes how to make relationships work. For that, they need tradition.”
Progress, too, has a way of producing unexpected problems and sources of unhappiness. Few people, for example, thought that contraception, no-fault divorce, or the internet would engender an instrumental approach to sex and love, and yet that is just what has happened. Increased freedom has meant increased selfishness, manipulation, and irresponsibility. Eros is a free-for-all, with the relations of men and women, in their bewildering autonomy, more and more resembling those of gay male culture. And though there are many people who want more from sex and love, not all of them know how to get it.
According to Wilcox and Stone, the primary cause of declining happiness among the young is less sex:

As THE POPE wrote recently, the sexual revolution has helped in a host of depravity. It’s also led to less actual healthy sex. So it is with social media mania – for all the instant connections, we really couldn’t be more isolated.
Irrespective of WSJ speculation and what goes on at the mall.
Jason Momoa, Hollywood’s shaggy-haired He-man, wasn’t up for an Oscar this year, but he did notch a very different sort of honor at this February’s Academy Awards: most talked-about male scrunchie. And not just any scrunchie but a custom pink-velvet Fendi affair to match his pink-velvet tuxedo. On Mr. Momoa’s YouTube channel, he noted that his entire pink Oscars outfit was inspired by a different pink scrunchie that was lent to him by a hairdresser on the set of his upcoming Apple TV show. “I freaked out ’cause it was beautiful,” said Mr. Momoa of discovering that initial salmon-colored accessory.
Mr. Momoa is just one of Hollywood’s many male stars who reflect the trend of men’s growing their hair long. (others in this club include Bradley Cooper, Timothée Chalamet and Dev Patel). And with long hair comes the need to pull it back from time to time. Like during workouts. Or sweaty awards ceremonies. Although the company doesn’t have specific statistics on male shoppers, Ellen Slicklen, the SVP and general manager of Conair and Scünci (known for its colorful hair ties) has seen an anecdotal uptick in male shoppers with flowing locks. “We’re finding that they’re using not only hair ties, not only our skinny headbands, but they’re using scrunchies now because they’re comfortable,” said Ms. Slicklen, who added that her 19-year-old son has recently let his hair grow out. “It is a trend,” she said.
Some men look good and manly with long hair. But, this new trend isn’t about channeling the inner Boromir. It’s about metrosexual androgyny; the look fits the new feel and disposition. It’s all dyscivilizational.
As I may mention in this week’s TPC bit (haven’t started it yet), if you’re out in public in any American city, you’ll find the scrunchy-wearing, purse-toting, swishy male masses. For fun, ask one of them if “he” is carrying a handkerchief or a pocket knife. Ask “him” if he could bench press a pocket knife. Actually, don’t. The scrunchies are depressing enough.
I’m not sure why the following made me think of Jacques Barzun’s book, which you should read, but they did. Hmmm.
AJ breaks down the ongoing love affair between the Alt-Left (especially big tech)and the pedo freaks.
A new report about a convicted pedophile from Houston Texas who participated in a “drag queen story hour” with children was censored from YouTube and the channel that posted it was deleted. Alex breaks down how drag queens are being worshiped by the left.
Of course, big tech is banning and deleting like mad.
Over on the “normal” side, the WSJ chronicles the decline of men’s professional fashion.
Jos. A. Bank, a chain known for selling suits to the corporate masses, began airing a television commercial earlier this month that features men in sport coats, khakis and jeans.
With fewer men buying suits, retailers of tailored clothing are trying to adapt to a world in which it is no longer unthinkable to wear Lululemon pants to the office.
“We want to send the message that we can help with more than just suits,” said Mary Beth Blake, Jos. A. Bank’s brand president.
The chain, one of the largest suit sellers along with its sibling Men’s Wearhouse, both owned by Tailored Brands Inc., TLRD -1.79% is starting to feel the bite as more companies give their blessing to casual attire. In recent weeks, Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Target Corp. joined the parade of companies that have relaxed their dress codes.
Sales at Tailored Brands, which also includes the K&G and Moores chains, fell 10.7% in the most recent quarter to $768.1 million. It predicts sales will continue to decline in the current period at all brands except K&G.
“We have just not kept pace with an evolving customer,” Tailored Brands Chairman Dinesh Lathi told analysts earlier this month, adding that the company was in the “earliest stages” of trying to find the right balance between suits and more casual attire.
The Lululemon pants thing may reinforce the drag queen notion. For Goldman, maybe casual should involve stripped jumpsuits? For the rest, this is a slippery slope. Outside Wall Street, “dressing up” has been redefined as wearing khakis. More like the devolving customer.
This very week, by a strange chance, I had the dubious pleasure of thumbing through what passes for a modern psychology textbook. Suffice to say, the new age of illiteracy may actually be a good thing.
So it is was that I was prepared for the latest shenanigans from the APA: being male is bad:
Attention boys: bullying, homophobia, sexual harassment and abuse are all your fault, according to new guidelines published by the world’s largest association of psychologists.
While traditional gender roles – under which men are stoic, competitive, dominant and aggressive – have existed for millennia, the rise of social justice culture has seen a new phrase popularized in recent years: toxic masculinity.
In the APA’s “first ever” set of guidelines to help psychologists work with men and boys, the association states that “traditional masculinity is psychologically harmful,” and “causes damage that echoes both inwardly and outwardly.”
But what is ‘traditional masculinity’ anyway? The APA says traditional masculinity is defined by “stoicism, competitiveness, dominance and aggression.” It’s found in men’s resilience in the face of adversity and insistence on “looking tough” despite mental suffering, and in their tendency to handle emotional strain with anger.
It’s safe to say that anyone claiming association with the APA is now an enemy. Regard them as such.
Men just built it and are expected to run it and pay for it. The power is her’s, the discrimination is his:
Men ‘face MORE discrimination than women’: Global study claims males receive the raw end of the deal with harsher punishments for the same crime, compulsory military service and more deaths at work
Men are disadvantaged in 91 countries compared to 43 nations for women
The UK, the US and Australia all discriminate against men more, a study claims
Italy, Israel and China are harder environments for women, researchers say
Scientists created the Basic Index of Gender Inequality to assess inequality
Closer the BIGI score is to zero the greater the level of equality is in the country
This comes as a surprise to no-one expect, perhaps, a few modern-wave feminists and their lavender supporters. The US comes in at number 61, favoring (you guessed it) women.
Tell us more about that ERA thing.
This is from Vancouver, mind you. But, what the heck?
VANCOUVER — As the famous Village People song declares, “Every man wants to be a macho macho man / To have the kind of body, always in demand.” But are “macho macho” mindsets becoming a thing of the past? A new study finds that male millennials are drifting away from stereotypical masculine values.
The research, led by the University of British Columbia, showed that younger men tend to value selflessness, social engagement, and health over traditional male ideals like physical strength and autonomy.
Of course, physique and independence were still prominent values for the 630 Canadian men aged 15 to 29 who took part in the survey, just not as important to participants as selflessness. In fact, selflessness was by far the top-rated male value. Nine in 10 respondents said that men should should help others, and 88 percent of the respondents agreed that men should be open to new ideas, new people, and new experiences. Eight in 10 felt it imperative that a man gives back to his community.
The irony of the Village People quote.
Give back? Without manly men, there would be no communities. No figure in all of history is more selfless than Western Man. There would be no society to engage without him. There would be no modern notion of health without him. The strength and autonomy ensure those other things exist.
Read up and hot the weights. Get in touch with your masculine side, Men of the West. It’s you or no one.
This kind of goes back to the old 53% statistic. Or the Justice K show trial. Is it possible men can be something other than oppressors? Even the opposite of that?
Washington (AFP) – The notion that it is dangerous to be an American man in the #MeToo era took off during the angry debate over Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
But tossing more fuel onto the fire were a sarcastic tirade from Donald Trump and a painfully awkward tweet from a seemingly over-anxious mother.
On the day Kavanaugh was sworn in as the junior justice to the high court, Pieter Hanson’s mother posted a message on the social media network comparing the plight of the jurist — who had vigorously denied allegations of sexual aggression — to the dating challenges facing her 32-year-old son.
Under the hashtag #HimToo, she said her son was refusing to go on “solo dates due to the current climate of false sexual accusations by radical feminists with an axe to grind.”
1) Unless it comes from Donald Trump, I find anything on Twitter idiotic and/or suspicious. Doubly so for “mom’s” plea Tweet.
2) Sailer Jerry has already cucked hard. He may be okay, but he’s not Judge K.
However, I find the sentiment of the story plausible, probable. Another case of modern liberal, cannibal PC dining on itself. See also, the spectacle and mockery visited upon Kanye West, as told best, here, by Jim Goad.
If they’re not GITMO’d fast, Killary and Pocahontas may announce (failing) bids for 2020. Any word from Giant Meteor??
Violence, unwarranted and unjustified, is wrong.
Who is more likely to be victimized by teen dating violence? If you’re quick to think it’s girls, new data shows you’re wrong. In a surprising twist, recently published research indicates boys are more likely to report being victims of dating violence committed by partners who hit, slap or push them.
Researchers with the University of British Columbia (UBC) and Simon Fraser University (SFU) conducted a longitudinal study of dating violence. While reports of physical abuse went down over time, they say there is a troubling gender-related trend.
Five percent of teens reported physical abuse from their dating partners in 2013, down from 6 percent in 2003. But in the last year, 5.8 percent of boys reported dating violence compared to 4.2 percent of girls.
“It could be that it’s still socially acceptable for girls to hit or slap boys in dating relationships,” says lead author Catherine Shaffer, a PhD student with SFU, in a release. “This has been found in studies of adolescents in other countries as well.”
It is substantiated by multiple studies from multiple countries. But it is not limited to teens. The consensus number is 53% – a slight majority – of “domestic” violence victims are males. Men are also the majority of victims of other violence. That patriarchal privilege or something. A dollar to a donut the Canadian study, like others, found that the 5.8 and 4.2 stats are skewed as men tend to underreport while women overreport.
We don’t blame victims unless they’re men, then it’s their fault. All that toxic masculinity.
Brown’s program is part of a growing trend on campuses to address “toxic masculinity,” a term generally defined as elements of masculinity that encourage dominance and prevent men from showing emotion.
Some experts identify this as a root cause of #MeToo issues. They say it can lead to self-detrimental, sexist and sometimes violent behavior, including sexual assault.
The behavior and attitudes of young men at educational institutions is under particular scrutiny as prospective Supreme Court justice Brett Kavanaugh faces accusations of sexual impropriety dating back to his high school years.
Many of the programs on campuses report new energy since the #MeToo movement began, while some unlikely campuses have addressed the issue for the first time because of #MeToo.
Neil Irvin is the executive director of Men Can Stop Rape, a non-profit that runs training for men, including on college campuses, on stopping sexual assault. He said it’s crucial that men break down harmful norms of masculinity.
Maybe there’s some truth to some of this. Maybe men would be better off embracing their
inner witch feminine whatever. Like this:
Symbolism is real. Baphomet Records.
