Counter to Davis M.J. Aurini video ‘The Core Premise of Leftism’

The number of sweeping generalizations made must have left you with an impeccably neat floor. Most of the types of accusations that you’ve made of “leftists” I can make for “rightists” as well. From my perspective, you might as well have been speaking of fundamentalist theists.

I invite you to re-watch the following video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vs41JrnGaxc

Based on my life experience, I have found the following to be true: every human lies somewhere on the bell-curve of survival-fear. Those more to one side tend to be conservative and seek familiarity, those on the other tend to be exploratory and novelty seeking.

The right and left are natural complements to each other. Without conservative ancestors, our species most likely would not have lived long enough to ensure the survival of the exploratory. Without the novelty seekers, the conservatives would have stagnated and we’d still be living in mud huts.

You equate Feminism with “leftism,” I think you might agree if I were to suggest that you mean that the two go hand-in-hand. I agree. Calling them insane is only a marker of your lack of empathy, of failing to view the world from their mindset’s lens. From their point of view, it is about alleviating their own inner psychological pain, but that wold be too personal, too vulnerable, so, it is claimed that the aim is “to be good,” regardless of the means of alleviating their fears. Going back to the notion of the bell-curve, we have a range from the genuine well-wishers to the psychopathic.

I will wholeheartedly concede that, as a generality, conservatives tend to be more concrete, whereas those on the left tend to be more abstract. Were our species to be placed at risk by some apocalyptic condition Feminism would disappear overnight, and as soon as the conditions were favourable, special interest groups, of which Feminism is merely one, would once again re-surge.

You made some interesting points, but I think that you’ve gone way overboard by trying to mind-read and explain what the core-premise of leftism is about when you’ve done so from an opposing perspective.

Another reason to go MGTOW – sperm theft

Women stealing sperm? C’mon, what woman would do this? Impossible! Unimaginable. This kind of thinking belongs to the paranoid and delusional.

Liz Jones on This Morning – Sperm Stealing

At 3:41 while discussing the theft of a man’s sperm to defraud him into parenthood, the host expresses her concern: “This is not very Gurl Power. It’s giving us a very bad name, and I worry about that.”

This is what toxic femininity looks like.

On the plus side, we have two women who actually bother viewing men as human.

The women say that the man has the right to not have a child.

Unfortunately, this is false. We do not have that right under law, should we lose control of his sperm. I do want to congratulate them for their sentiment that men should have that right though. This video is a rare moment of honesty on the matter in the media. Good on them for that, at least.

Feeling down? Turn to the Japanese

Whenever I’m feeling down, I turn to the Japanese. They are disciplined, generally polite, but most of all, they have an insanely bizarre sense of humour.

Women Nowadays: a litany of horrors, GoodMenAmongUs a balm

There was once a YouTube channel called “ViolentWomenAmongUs” that had some 1500 to 2000 news clippings of women perpetrating horrible deeds. It was taken down. Another has taken its place. I don’t know if it is the same person.

The channel, like this one, is soul-sickening and rage inducing in its variety, persistence and sheer mass. Here is a more recent example.

Whereas the previous channels are an important resource to help re-balance the notion that women are precious, special, victimized princesses incapable of anything than goodness and light, it wasn’t enough.

I was so affected by the channel’s content that I had decided to create my own channel: GoodMenAmongUs *

https://www.youtube.com/user/GoodMenAmongUs

Where our society tells us that men are horrible, violent, abusive rapists, I felt the need to show the other side of that coin. The Good Men Amongst Us channel is designed as a soul-balm to those who feel that men are being treated as little more than the evil puppets of the patriarchy.

I only update it sporadically, as my mental state requires, or as I run into a fortunate example worthy of putting up on the channel. It isn’t enough to be negative, one must be positive.

I invite you to subscribe, to pass it along to those who you think might benefit from it, and to send video recommendations of the like via a private message on the channel.

* I am embarrassed to say that the channel should have been properly named goodmenamongsTus :)

The Men’s Rights Movement is not the inverse of Feminism

This is a comment that I had left to an interlocutor on social media. It is, I think, a good and relatively short introduction to the difference between the Men’s Rights Movement, Feminism and why so many Men’s Rights Activists are anti-Feminist as well.

I’d like to shorten this to an elevator pitch. I welcome your feedback.

The men’s rights movement is not the inverse of Feminism. It is not “Feminism for men.” That there was once a woman’s rights movement that eventually gave way to Feminism, does not imply that people who now strive for equivalent rights for men (such as gaining reproductive rights) use an equivalent, but sex-reversed mental framework.

A refresher. Feminism’s three phases can be simplified to this: 1. Fighting for actual rights in law. 2. Re-examining women’s roles and sense of identity relative to society. 3. Trying to re-write cultural norms.

At the moment, men are fighting for our actual rights in law, and re-examining our roles and sense of identity relative to society. We are not, however, trying to re-write cultural norms on the basis of an androcentrically oriented mental framework.

The women’s rights movement was a good thing, and I don’t think you’ll hear any MRA say otherwise. Feminism was sharp split from the women’s rights movement. It went from being about equal rights and responsibilities, to the post-modern, neo-Marxist critical theory-based framework that accepted the notion of class warfare (patriarchy theory) that posits that not only are women oppressed and subjugated, but added “by men.”

Ever since, Feminism has been actively doing three things.

The first, is to seek women’s advantage–deserved or not–regardless of the cost to men.

The second was to infiltrate and lobby government with the tenets of Radical Feminism: that women need to be protected from men, that men are a danger to women, and to implement these presuppositions though legislature and policy.

The third, was to promote the cultural message that men are perpetrators of women’s victimization.

All of this translates to tangible, measurable active harms to men, legally and culturally. It may work to women’s advantage and interest, but is in no way fair, or impartial. This is a far cry from equal pay for equal work, or equal opportunity, or equal rights under just law.

Does disagreement with these behaviours in anyway diminish women’s legal or moral standing? It does not. If men want to re-balance law so that it is genuinely sex-neutral, does this detract from women’s rights? It does not. If men speak out against the negative stereotypes propagated against us, does this mean that we want to foster inverse negative stereotypes about women? Of course not. And if men are angry with the way that we are treated, does this mean that we hate women? It doesn’t.

That one is anti the-political-ideology of Radical Feminism does not mean that one is anti-woman. It means that the ideas that Feminism promotes and implement are bad ideas. It means that it is our turn to start cleaning things up, but first, we have to get people to stop the mud-slinging.

I hope this clarifies my point of view. I welcome your thoughtful response.

Quarrel between MRA and MGTOW: Be the guy on the other side of the glass

This has officially gotten out of hand and too many in the community are acting like a bunch of screeching chimps waving sticks and thumping their chests.

All humans, without exception, myself included are 23 different kind of assholes, and often, on the same day. Will everyone please just let go of the gossip, the tantrums, the name calling and focus on promoting men and boys positive ideas and doing what we can to focus on improving the situation?

Be the guy on the other side of the glass.
