Every once in awhile, I feel the urge to write something prolific and meaningful that I hope someone out there will take to heart and be able to adapt or learn from. One such topic is that of Neomasculinity, something that is rather close to my heart.
Some people might ask “why?”, but those same people will obviously be confused themselves as to their own gender roles and forte(s). First of all, everyone must understand, that Neomasculinity and MGTOW (Men Going Their Own Way) are two completely different entities and concepts, which have nothing to do with one another.
Whereas MGTOW urges men to join the “sexodus” crowd (opting to quit pursuing females because of their seemingly unattainable/unfulfillable demands), immerse themselves into gaming culture and just drift in search of something that they’ve been unable to procure or tap into themselves, Neomasculinity urges men to re-establish their standing as the head of the tribe, king of their own home, adopt warrior-like mentality, become responsible and begin acting like Alpha Males.
Yeah, I like the sound and vibe of Neomasculinity, probably because I was raised that way. At the core, I have always been a classic man. My parents saw to that, and I have them to thank for the fact that I am not confused about my standing or who I am in today’s ever-convoluted, ambiguous culture and world.
So why all the fuss about Neomasculinity? Some people get bent out of shape at even the slightest espousal of traditional values. After all, they seem to be a thing of yesteryear and almost the laughing stock of the media and culture of the day. Well, Neomasculinity’s argument lies in the fact that no man wants to feel like a chump, a wimp, a whipping boy, a dog on a leash (except for those unfortunate individuals who have tendencies to be “slaves”, which is a certain kind of perversion) or “the weaker half.”
No real man out there would opt for any of the above-mentioned descriptions when speaking about themselves. Real men want to be respected, feel powerful, in control, leading the dance, hunting the prey, making the kill. Real men do not play second fiddle to anyone, because they know their self-worth and internal stock value.
I find it quite absurd and even tragically comedic, that the vast amount of YouTubers out there talking about Neomasculinity sound like their balls haven’t even dropped yet. There isn’t much weight behind their words, because they sound like they themselves are just analyzing the phenomenon, and trying it on for size like an over-sized leather jacket at a clothing store: they don’t own it yet, but they are hoping it would be for them.
Only one source on YouTube has a voice, sans imposing physique to match, however, that carries a credible voice for the cause. Take a listen to Paul Joseph Watson as he espouses the virtues of Neomasculinity and breaks it down for y’all…
So once again, why Neomasculinity? Well, because men these days need to man the fuck up. Men have let things slide, they have given the squeaky wheel of feminism, PC thought and “sexual equality” propagandists the proverbial grease, in the hopes of shutting them up and getting their own way. Men have not safeguarded their standing in society, their position at the helm of the household, nor their position as leaders that answer for their deeds and show responsibility at the end of it all.
Instead, modern men have become shellshocked, soft, relenting and yes, confused. They don’t know where they stand anymore, be it in their romantic relationships or in society on a whole. Men have lost their place, which was etched in stone for thousands of years, and this has not boded well for the modern man, as the spine of society on a whole has crumbled in its wake. Oh, and men are not well at all. They are depressed, lost and weak because of their lack of purpose and numbing confusion.
Simply acting like a traditional man is considered offensive and sexist now. I wonder what icons like John Wayne and Clint Eastwood would say about this. Well, I know what Eastwood had to say, because he let Esquire magazine have it awhile ago, claiming the generation today is one made up of “pussies.”
Where does that leave men? Good question. Scrambling for answers, I’d say, as they try to appease and win over the opposite sex through adapting to the rules of the new game, much like Mel Gibson in the movie What Women Want. Really, you ask? Yes, to a large degree.
Men have become players, even moreso than before, because they cannot seem to find any other way to score with the demanding, domineering modern female. They opt for the one night stand in lieu of a long-standing, serious relationship, because men do not see the long-term payoff in the big picture. There’s nothing to bank on, nothing worth the investment. Sad, really.
Back in the day, both sexes brought something valuable to the table – actual life skills like cooking, housekeeping, gardening, mechanical and fundamental competence in line with their gender – and the complementary dynamic of these combined skills made for a promising marriage of opposites. Nowadays, the counterparts in the relationship are damn near homogenous, and this cannot be a good thing. Ever.
At the core of it all, men do not want to be controlled or manipulated to facilitate something that they feel is outside of what they can realistically produce. And why is this? Because men are still driven by the innate need for respect, to feel strong and to be powerful through and through. When a man’s deeds and actions are not met with affirmative respect, he loses interest and caring, and proceeds to piss in the wind and “fuck it all.” When a man does not feel that he is strong, he shies away and tries to cover up his weakness, making him feel like less of a man. This is not hard to understand, nor is it rocket science.
The younger generation, I’ve noticed, has little to no clue about what it takes to be a man (or to be a woman, for that matter), and they try to overcompensate with things like social media photos of themselves in little to no garb, which only initiates the most primal mating call of them all, and nothing beyond that. They think that superficial values will get the job done, without having to put in the hard work and persistence of time.
I’ve got news for you, folks. We’re in trouble. Our society is on the crux of a great, social overhaul. Gender roles are being done away with, and if you only care to take a look around with unassuming eyes, you will see that we are in for a shit storm. The polarity of the sexes, the things and idiosyncrasies that have drawn men and women to each other over the centuries, is being erased. No one is going to want to invest in the long-term with the opposite sex if the perks, goods and life skills are not there to begin with. Forget the window dressing, we’re going deeper than the surface here.
So, Neomasculinity is the only clear, healthy answer for men today, period. It seeks to re-establish the throne and take back the proverbial lost balls of those unfortunate fellas, who let them slip away to begin with. After realizing such a move only made them feel like shit, their only course of action is to backtrack and reclaim what they should have never parted with in the first place.
Make the stand today, gentlemen, or risk losing what is left of your self-respect.
In closing, if anything I’ve said or written here has offended or distraught you… well, to quote my favorite pro wrestling promoter of all time, Bill Watts: “If the shoe fits, wear it.”
