Here at Patriactionary, we consider our blog to be more or less at the intersection of the manosphere and the tradosphere / orthosphere, in terms of our interests and foci (‘focuses’ for the Latin-challenged) as ‘Red Pill’ patriarchal reactionary traditionalist Christian men.
Really? How sad, that sodomites have so captured the word ‘man’ that any association with it somehow seems homo in the minds of some.
As for the supposed replacement ‘cocktagon’, actually referencing the male organ sounds way more queer than just referring to our common masculinity in the term ‘manosphere’, no? It does to me, as does ‘cockosphere’…
I agree that neither ‘androsphere’ nor ‘homosphere’ are suitable (they’re both worse, and even more queer-sounding)…
Why not just leave well enough alone?
Stop being over-sensitive, you ‘manosphere’-term haters! We’re men; why not acknowledge that in our name?
While I’m on the subject, are men who take an interest in dressing well, cooking, the arts, etc., any less manly than those who prefer professional sports? Because the fear of the term ‘manosphere’ strikes me as the sort of hyper-masculine bullshit that gets people who like the arts labelled ‘theater-fags’, even if they’re straight. Why can’t straight guys like theatre, the arts, even dancing, the way true ‘renaissance men’ did in times past?
Why let the outside world dictate what is and isn’t ‘masculine’? Why can’t ‘real men’ eat quiche or drink wine?
Really, that attitude is all a case of realmannspracht, and if the manosphere is to be about anything, shouldn’t we free ourselves from allowing outsiders to tell us what constitutes a ‘real man’? Especially, shouldn’t Christians take their cue from Scripture? All men are real men, simply due to being created in the image of God, thus bearing the Imago Dei. That’s what a real man is, and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
Or tell you we shouldn’t identify as men, in terms of that phrase ‘manosphere’, nor like things other men don’t.
Fuck that. I’ll like what I like, and not like what I don’t like (e.g. I’m not much for sports), and I don’t care what others think of me for my tastes / preferences. What could be more manly than not caring what others think?
Why not NOT let queers capture terms like ‘man’, NOR let others dictate what is and what isn’t ‘truly’ manly? Why not tell both of them to get stuffed – and go your own way… 🙂
(Like me using emoticons, or linking Cracked articles in my linkfests; not toeing any party line, am I? Hmmm.)
