Western societal honor has been sacrificed upon the altar of the post-modern. That’s the simple fact of the matter. Honor is now foreign to the mind of the West, and there truly is no standard set for the Western individual. Why should we hold honor in such high regard? What is honor? Why was honor sacrificed?
In all corners of the Earth where honor can historically/presently be found, it is generally defined the same way regardless of culture or region. Honor is the eternal reputation of the self. It is not necessarily defined by intelligence, cunning, strength, speed, or talent. Honor is worthiness, loyalty, truthfulness, respect, being well-mannered, having discipline, and being humble. Ultimately, one of high honor was of high value to society, and held in high regard. Therefore, the actions of the honorable were something to pay mind.
In our world the fatherly God has been killed and replaced by postmodern humanism. Throughout history societies have gone from worship of nature to more immaterial, metaphysical concepts that are beyond our comprehension. Scientific progress has helped us move away from believing the winds and tides are caused by spirits, and we are now approaching a point where even the Almighty will soon go by the wayside. However, man is not a secular animal. We are seeing a return to the pre-Christian veneration of genitals combined with postmodern feminist narratives of empowerment and an unprecedented female sense of self-worth. Take the below video for example:
Trigger warning: extreme douchebags
As bad as the PUA’s are with their focus on the vag at least they are not pussy whipping themselves before the world in the name of the “sacred feminine.” These self-flagellants are just the tip of the dildo.
Bill has apparently experienced some oppression by uneducated and insensitive people who question his “gay credentials” because he dates transexual men. That is, women who decided to wear tank-tops and badly-imitate a countertenor.
Being a creative soul, Billbo creates a comic that is meant to illustrate his struggle with a society that struggles to accommodate his deviancy. What results is a unique combination of boring, hypocritical, and disgusting.
Forget the grammar in the picture–focus on the message. It isn’t enough that society bends over backwards in order to accommodate women. Third-wave feminism is about acknowledging women’s subordination, both in terms of agency and intellectual/physical ability. The acknowledgment isn’t explicit. They’ll deny it endlessly. Rather, it’s implicit, and the way it comes out is through constant over-compensation.
“The first Kings were Fathers of Families.” – Patriarcha, Sir Robert Filmer (1680)
You’re doing it wrong.
As the diannihilect swept past for another spiraling lap, what was forgotten became profound once again.
In world of ceaseless and senseless deconstruction, it is both surprising and not surprising that a male’s innate ability to socialize with other humans has been repackaged and mythologized by spurious and slimy men as “game.”
Apparently, being able to talk to a woman without seeming a pathetic child needing mommy’s kiss for his little boo-boo is pivotal towards achieving Man’s biological goal. Apparently a boy must become a Man if he desires the company of a female in any pleasing capacity. Whodathunkit?
Ron Paul, our generation’s William Jennings Bryan, has largely run his course. The man who for decades bravely griefed Congress and disrupted Republican Primaries, now talks shit about dead people on twitter. He who lives by the troll dies by the troll, I suppose.
Following his not-so-stellar progress in 2010-11, these actions certainly don’t surprise me; here was a man ultimately less interested in cultivating a meaningful counter-narrative, and more interested in pissing people off before collecting his Congressional pension.
I. YOUR BODY. YOUR RULES™
So what is the moral of the story (the sales pitch)? Something about empowerment, that women are actually the controllers of the sexual transaction, no matter the manliness or perceived power of the partner involved. By the way, do you notice what MTV projects as the masculine ideal? If you see it, it’s for you.
In 1680, Sir Robert Filmer wrote that the first Kings were fathers of families. This makes sense to The Right Stuff on a visceral level.
At some point in human evolution, primitive man started valuing the particular being he dumped his sperm in more than the act itself (take note, PUAs). It was at this moment that man discovered qualifiers, that man first asserted that something was “his.” Indeed, women were the first human conceptions of “property.”
Property can therefore be seen as inherently oppressive, and the basis of human civilization. Shocked? Don’t be. Reality isn’t pretty, it never was.1
Patriarchy is defined hierarchy and authority based upon this foundation, this recognition of reality. Civilization cannot emerge from the alternative; it can merely enervate itself with lies otherwise.2
