At first I fell in with much of the banter of the so-called 'Manosphere' because in it's early years it was pretty much common sense. Yes, men are being pussified and emasculated in modern society. Yes, feral women were destroying their families and workplaces in search of dreams and goals that weren't what they thought they were. Yes, they are being pushed into non-traditional roles and they are failing far more often than they succeed. The responses to these societal pressures were good too, in the beginning. Stoicism (in the philosophical sense) was an excellent way to deal with these unhappy developments. Minimalism was essential to the divorced man that suddenly lost half his income and had his bills double. Some men decided to check out of the mating/dating game and just hop on the motorcycle and see where it went - by going their own way. I think that is just the medicine for a broken heart and a great temporary way for a man to get his head on straight once he's been deeply hurt by a woman. Once you DO have your head on straight - get back in the game then.
But over time the Manosphere went bad. Pick up artists, chads and scammers got into it to sell books that'll learn ya everything ya need to know about women and how to take advantage of them: find 'em, finger 'em, **** 'em and forget 'em! THAT'LL learn 'em REAL good! The guys going their own way went - and the younger men that were too craven to even approach women appropriated the term. These were the kind of young men (kids) that gave up on women before even giving them a chance. They are an object of scorn and contempt today in the Manosphere, but a part of me feels for them. They've seen their fathers or brothers go through the meat grinder of family court and divorce, or the vileness of the hook-up culture... I can see and even sympathize with them a bit.
Now I'm seeing a lot of shit like this.
The church is being run by a bunch of castrated cuckholds that are dominated by feral women! Christianity is an assault on your manhood!
So toxic has the Manosphere become - that these kids don't understand that humbleness is one of the manly virtues. They see a man deferring to his wife, or getting reamed out by her or getting his ass kicked - and they respond with contempt or derisive laughter. Those kids don't understand that women have shitty days too and sometimes - you back off, you let them vent, you let their rage blow out...and then you start to reason with them. A man will do that with his friends, his customers and even his kids.
Example: For me - most of my adult life, my in laws walked all over me. They undermined me as a father and a husband and they wouldn't respect me one iota. I had those shit birds walk into my bedroom. They even walked into the crapper once when I was using it! Boundaries between families? Fah - the mother in law was the head of our family and that was that for that. A few times we clashed and it ended in a draw simply because my wife and kid loved them...and I loved my wife and kid. For decades, for the most part - I backed down.
I hated it. I loathed it. My blood still boils when I think of my smarmy bitch of a mother in law and her idiot of a husband and the shit they pulled in my family. But every time they pulled their shit and got away with it, every time they walked over me... I took their shit because I loved my wife and daughter. The church is very big on family and it is hard as hell on men because in their eyes, the head of the family is the man and whatever happens to him and his family - it's on him. For me, being a family man was an incredibly difficult task at times. There were times I just wasn't up to it and only my wife helped me through it.
These days there's churches that actively promote everything from sodomy to feminism to satanic worship - screw them, they're diseased parodies of the church and only idiots will say otherwise. Classical Christianity holds that men are responsible for the family and men cannot act against the interests of their family. This is exactly what liberals do - and that is why their families fall apart. The hairy chested feminists of the 70's and 80's are all lonely cat - woman now. When they ask where all the good men went - I think it was Unca Bob that said "They're right where you parked them when you left them back in the 80's...". Their daughters are unlikeable lard asses, their sons are faggotified boys that haven't grown up. If you want to tell me that liberals are happier for all their social engineering - I'm not seeing many signs of it myself.
Sure, churches are aimed squarely at women - as they should be! When you are at work earning a buck the old lady is in charge of the family... and these days she has to earn a buck too. The mother has to make sure her kids know right from wrong and the church is one of the last places that is actually making an effort to help kids with that. It only makes sense that they help Mom with that too.
I've never had to take any shit off my wife. Oh sure, she's committed the odd justified homicide or two but I always recover and we always get over it and move on. Once we've dealt with whatever the problem is - the 'shit' just disappears. When our family disintegrated she fell in with the church and I think that was the best thing for her. She's got friends there, she helps the elders, harasses the children and she has a community.
I myself am not a Christian - but I know who my friends are and consider myself a loose friend of the faith. I may not share the faith they have - but I can tell you this from personal experience with progs and the virtue-signalling social justice warriors: their communities and families are superior to the alternatives that liberals push today.
It might be an idea for the alpha males of the Manosphere to shut their gobs and maybe open their ears. The church is about family and they've been building them for 2000 years. I think that in that time they might have learned a thing or two that might have eluded the cellar dwelling boys of the Manosphere.
