One Hundred Years of Men’s Rights Have Come To Nothing

Good graphic, and good post.

I think we stand in a more hopeful situation today compared to 1926, though, because there are a lot more of us today who get it. And our numbers keep growing.

And we serve an omniscient, omnipotent, and omnipresent God, with Whose help we can do anything, especially if we are seeking first His honour and glory and will being done.

In drafting the last post in response to one on another blog, I thought of a graphic but didn’t have the time and energy to dig it out until now.  I don’t know who came up with it or where it even come from anymore.  But it points out that:

  1. Feminism is a much older way of thought that most people tend to think.
  2. Feminism is ultimately ill-defined to the point that anyone that seeks to be against it always fails.  A proper solution to a problem always begins with an accurate definition.
  3. The nature of power and all that it is predicates that those with it will not give it up willingly.   When those in power are wrong, it will always require some pain in order to remove them from that power.
  4. Yet few will come up with an accurate definition or an effective solution, nor will support the…

Women Choose Their Mates

Hear, hear!

Don’t let them choose you first, brothers; make sure you choose them, first.

Ballista74's Blog

One thing I’ve endeavored to point out throughout this blog is that due to traditional feminism, the general pattern for relationships is that men bring offerings while women approve of them.This puts women in a headship position, countermanding Scripture.

This extends to the very beginnings of relationships. As I originally pointed out in Some Problems in Christian Dating, women select the men they are interested in and initiate contact via flirting. This is confused into the thought that the man is the head by approaching and offering whatever it may be that she desires. “How To Make His Wildest Dreams Come True” by Graham Masterson points this out.

Flirting is much more than a frivolous bit of fun. Some experimental psychologists have come to believe that it explains the whole nature of human sexual relationships. In the past, social studies tended to conclude that men control the…

A beer fit for an ugly feminist.

Bring it, I say. Budweiser is a shitty beer anyway; this will alienate their core customers (like the Gillette ad did) while not attracting ‘cool wine aunts’ to drink it, so it will be counterproductive.

It’s beautiful when Woke Capitalism undermines and destroys itself through its insanity.

Moar, pleez!

Dalrock

Ad Age explains that Budweiser has reworked old ads to make them more empowering for women:

The campaign, released today in conjunction with International Women’s Day, features full-page color ads in The New York Times, Chicago Tribune and Los Angeles Times that juxtapose sexist Bud print ads from the 1950s and 60s with updated versions portraying women in empowered roles.

But the new ads have a pathos to them.  Where the women in the old ads were serving and loving, with one exception the women in the new ads are ugly feminists with no men in the picture.  Out is a picture of a woman proudly preparing a delicious dinner for her and her husband with the caption:

Big appetite… dinner is almost ready and it sure smells good. Loosen your tie and enjoy your Budweiser.

In is a woman drinking alone on a Friday night eating takeout with…

Liberty’s Window: The Case Against Daylight Savings Time

Hear, hear!

While I’ve never had particularly strong feelings about daylight savings time, this guy makes the case against it rather well, IMO.

I especially like his pointing out the absurdity that now ‘standard’ time, which you would think by the name ‘standard’ is the ‘standard, is only four months of the year, while the majority of the year is now spent on non-‘standard’ time…

And I also like his closing paragraph about if any case can be made for lengthening the hours of daylight in the afternoon / evening, wouldn’t winter be a more logical choice than summer?

Anyway, I do admire the spirit of places like Saskatchewan and Arizona that reject Daylight Savings Time, and I’m inclined to say, as a reactionary, let’s go back to what we had before this wartime and/or agrarian practice and return to standard time, year round.

Elizabeth Hobson on ‘proto-feminism’

Elizabeth Hobson on ‘proto-feminism’

Gynocentrism and its cultural origins

The following is an excerpt from Elizabeth Hobson’s latest article in PoliQuads Magazine.

Feminists Do Not Get To Define Feminism

By Elizabeth Hobson  

Proto-feminism arose in the late Middle Ages. Queen consort of France and England, Eleanor of Acquitaine spearheaded a movement within her court to subvert the chivalric code (which had traditionally governed relations between knights and lords) to regulate the behaviour of men towards women. These women initiated a system of romantic feudalism wherein noble men were under irresistible pressure to identify a lady as midons (my lord) and to submit to her will and delicately accept any scorn that her midons saw fit to extend to him. Eleanor established “Courts of Love” in which she and her noble women would administer “justice” in romantic disputes. Not only may many men in particular recognise this state of gender relations, but the modus operandi that Eleanor and company used…

Social Justice circa 2009

Social Justice circa 2009

Old Life

If you read some people, you might get the impression that the gospel and social justice are synonymous. But words change meanings, even if some people have trouble understanding that a reference to “race” in the 1930s is not the same as one in the 1880s or the 1980s.

Consider how only a decade ago, the Gospel Allies were talking about social justice in ways that no one could use after Michael Brown, Ferguson, and Black Lives Matter. For instance, Kevin DeYoung wrote a series on social justice in Scripture that found almost no reference to race. Here is how he summarized it last year (even!):

Several years ago, I worked my way through the major justice passages in the Bible: Leviticus 19, Leviticus 25, Isaiah 1, Isaiah 58, Jeremiah 22, Amos 5, Micah 6:8, Matthew 25:31-46, and Luke 4. My less-than-exciting conclusion was that we should not oversell…

Five Friday Reads – 1/4/19

The phrase “think global; act local” may be a prog one, but we can and ought to follow it, too; Ryan Landry shows one way how he has done so.

We can push back against our overlords! 🙂

The American Sun

A peer lost a friend to opioids. At this point, have not we all known someone close who has become addicted to pills or heroin if not lost them to it? As readers know, this was a peculiar concern of mine. I have lost three childhood pals to it. I left continuous writing as Ryan Landry to do things in the real world. One of the things was spending time, energy and money into addressing the opioid epidemic in my area. You too can do something, and maybe spare someone the pain of losing a friend.

I spent months designing something with some law enforcement people I knew for how to address the problem. They 100% agreed that no one, whether rural or urban, has a community to return to that will help them stay clean. A sober living administrator then brought me to reality and stated, “This is…
