Words For My Fair Lass

I am your rock and refuge. When the weight of the world bears down upon you, I shall be there. My dearest, hold on to me. Disaster may strike, but together we will remain resolute. Biterness and despair shall not encompass us.  Pain shall not hinder us. The jealousy of the world shall only strengthen us. Hold on to me. My strength will shelter you and my fortitude will rescue you from the deepest depths of worry. The dragons may circle our castle, but they will never break our resolve. In the face of destruction, I will remain steadfast for...

Why is Catcalling Bad? 1

Why is Catcalling Bad?

We are often told in life that many things are “bad”.     Some are obvious – theft, rape, murder, ect.  Others such as “cat-calling” are not.   I ran into this article on XoJane in which this smoking hot babe was catcalled. Determined to do something about it, she confronted every last one of them.  Either there were only 3 encounters worth mentioning, or she was only catcalled three times – group encounter for one of those – in a week. Something that kept popping up in my mind: Why actually is catcalling bad? Most men – and I use...

Is Money In Politics Bad? 0

Is Money In Politics Bad?

This always depends on whose money the “political party” and advocates are receiving. Ultimately, it is it’s own time held tradition of American hypocrisy that can be summed up as, “It’s wrong when you do it, but okay when I do.” I came across this article in The Washington Post detailing a list for 2014 revealing the donors for the Center for American Progress.  CAP finally decided to do this after taking some criticism for a lack of transparency from fellow progressives as well as conservatives only too eager to point out flaws in their opponents. Notable top donors include...

“Equality” Was So Last Decade 0

“Equality” Was So Last Decade

The more and more I see posts by feminists – particularly the radfems- there appears to be this vitriolic disdain for the penultimate height of evil that infests our world; the ever dangerous white male. Many of the things said about these “white males” are deemed acceptable statements of “uncomfortable truth” though one would not dare utter similar things about anyone else who either wasn’t white and/or male.   Society is full of double-standards which we usually make excuses for with concepts like Standpoint Theory (Privilege) and the notion that if you are supposedly a member of the opposing group...

In Remembrance: Opinionated Man 4

In Remembrance: Opinionated Man

Opinionated Man a.k.a Jason Cushman recently had the unfortunate experience of being told by WordPress that “mass following” – which literally can include simply following too many people back – is now a WordPress crime under the “spam” category.    We all hate spam, but this is a curious redefinition and it changes how the game is played right in the middle of it. It’s kind of like playing a game with an older brother that suddenly tells you about a new rule in the game that you didn’t know about, but it benefits him alot.  You check out the...

“Harassment” Doesn’t Affect Nor Negate the Validity of #GamerGate’s Call For Ethics in Gaming Journalism

Retaking The Narrative: Ethics in Gaming Journalism “Guilt by Association” or rather “Wrong by Association” is one of the most utilized tactics of the online media age. It panders to the to the intellectual laziness in our culture which finds it much easier to dismiss arguments based on where they come from rather then what they are. It is why you will see/hear people dismiss arguments and positions based on retorts such as, “Alex Jones nut”, liberal whackjob, bible thumper, fundamentalist, ect.  instead of bothering to actually examine people’s arguments  Why? Because it is far less tim consuming to simply dismiss...

Problems in the Manosphere

The Emerging Problem It deeply pains me to admit this, but the “manosphere” and some who have taken “The Red Pill”  (TRP) have allowed their pain and anger to distract them from self-improvement and to mistakenly and irresponsibly blame women for their pain. In fact, it has become home to some men who might actually hate women – in particular the “Men Going Their Own Way”  (MGTOW) portion of it who I actually deeply sympathize with.  (Disclosure: I’m not a feminist.) The thing is, most men aren’t meant to be bachelors.  Despite what most MGTOWs will tell you, men and women...

Warning! Trigger Warning! Warning About That Trigger… 0

Warning! Trigger Warning! Warning About That Trigger…

A Bad Joke The internet used to be a rough and tumble place filled with danger, memes, and shocking images.  AIM chatrooms and IRC chats were uncharted digital waters; it might be a fellow teenager or someone your grandpa’s ages trying to get in touch with the youth culture. 4Chan and Reddit could still be used as a pleasant shock to confirm to your parents snooping on your browser history that you were indeed being corrupted by contemptible basement dwelling peers. Since then some have sought to brought order to that Wild West of devious trolling minds.  In the last...

The Joe Rogan Experience Podcast: Comedians On Drugs

Podcasts and Becoming A Man “Podcasts” are slowly becoming a “trend” that people are starting to pick up on.  It’s a hell of alot easier to embrace this trend with a decent phone.  It’s also one way you can learn quite a bit – for free you stinges – and improve your ability to interact with the world.  Take it from an old soul like me; I just turned 26 and every bit of attained wisdom helps make life that much more enjoyable. While I might get pumped up to a thumping hardcore beatdown song, I actually learn something from...

The Chicago Meetup with Mike Cernovich And What I Learned. 2

The Chicago Meetup with Mike Cernovich And What I Learned.

About a week and a half ago, I had the privilege of interacting with Mike Cernovich  from Danger & Play in person at a meetup he held in Chicago.  I really wasn’t sure if I wanted to take the train all the way down to the City – specifically Union Station and then hike my way to the Godfrey Hotel where the meetup was at. (Note I’m at the Fox Lake station which is the start of the line so I literally have to ride all the way to end of the line.) I had never heard of the place...
