Good Men Are Scum With Or Without Masculinity

So do your part and kneel.

By I. Am. Verboten

So why fight over pronouns? It's time to get judgmental. We don't teach boys how to be men anymore. Perhaps we don't want to be seen as moralizing.

Some don't "believe" gender is real or that gender roles have any value at all. They confuse gender roles earned and developed from those imposed. This is the post-modern conflation of baby with the bath water convinced everything in the past is wrong or irrelevant.

Well our hesitation in passing on the important heritage of masculinity is producing a world full of broken homes and cowardly men. Women can be fierce creatures of endless anger and passion. Weak men now run from responsibility instead of facing it.

In times of prosperity you must make preparations for the hard times that are sure to come. - Col. Wm. C. Hunter, Dollars and Sense, 1906

Everywhere a man doesn't stand up and raise his kids a crime statistic balloons. Couples who stay together help keep a country safe. Exceptions aside they tend to raise better kids that live better lives. It's not always easy and women aren't perfect, but men need to man up. Don't be so quick to walk out.

Canadian divorce rates are unbearably high. Here is some basic advice to get you started. When a good women allows you to take her out, pay the bill. When you have the chance to open a door, do it. Don't argue over gender rights. You are NOT equal to a women. A women is better than you. She looks better, smells better, sounds better, thinks better, laughs better, loves better, and best of all...feels better.

In 1971, 68% of 25 to 29 year-old university graduates in Canada were male. Ten years later, women had more or less caught up to men, as only 54% of graduates were male. By 1991, women had become the slight majority, comprising 51% of graduates. In the 2001 Census, 58% of all graduates were women and 60% by 2006.

In 2012, more women (73.2%) than men (65.1%) aged 25 to 44 years of age had completed post-secondary education. Our days as the primary bread winner leaving mothers at home with the kids are over. Women have taken over more market share in less time since entering the work place than any would have imagined. They're just awesome.

Being A Man And Being A Father Is Hard And Takes Hard Work.

Accept that you are a man, you are scum...but you are strong scum. Useful scum. When other scum come around you out-scum. This way your women stays clean, unsoiled by the evil shit in the world you are supposed to protect her and your growing family from.

And when you have kids, you will know your place. The bottom. The absolute lowest position. Because you are the bedrock on which your family must build. You are not detailed or nuanced, you are not clever or complex. You are reliable, you are constant because you are a man.
