Poll Analysis & The Third Option

Poll Analysis & The Third Option

Sep 16, 2013

As you may be aware, I conducted a poll of our readers’ religious and political affiliations. Honestly for no good reason – I was just curious. The results have been interesting. However, I must concede this is not necessarily an accurate representation of the Manosphere. First off only people who have been to this site would have voted; which is most likely, exclusively, a portion of TheRedPill subreddit. Secondly it was only posted at the end of two of my articles: Chivalry Is A Beta Move, Right? and How Feminism Has Manipulated The English Language & The Concept of Equality. Meaning only people interested in those titles would have clicked and voted. But regardless, we got over 220 participants – so we’re good to go.   I should note, initially there was no “Atheist” option, silly me. Once added the numbers jumped, so that’s what I put the 8% of “Other” down to. Also, the Atheists might have chosen Agnostic as second-best. Regardless, the Atheists and Agnostics added together make up about 50% of the vote. Second largest is a clear, precedented Christian representation; given the state of the Church this is pleasing. In addition the Catholics are at 4%. Lastly, we’ve got a few Jews, Buddhists, and Islamics; so we can claim “cultural indifference”. And to the dude who pointed out that the Evolution is a scientific theory not a religious belief… I know it just, it just works easier sticking in that group.   The first thing to note is there is a very clear majority of Libertarians. This is surprising and unsurprising at the same time. I kind of knew there would be an over-representation of them, but I didn’t think they would get 50% of the vote. But back to these guys in a second. Secondly, it’s interesting to note that there is a fairly even spread of Democratic Left & Democratic Right. At 12% and 16% the conservatives have the lead; unsurprising as though as when I think feminism, I think Progressives. Nevertheless it’s good we’ve got a few Left Wing brethren so that we’re not written off as crazy cracker right wing extremist misogynists. Good to see we’ve...

How Feminism Has Manipulated The English Language & The Concept of Equality

Sep 3, 2013

In George Orwell’s dystopian (that’s smart-talk for “scary fucking fictional future”) novel Nineteen Eighty-Four he implemented the concept of a language called newspeak. Newspeak was a boiled-down version of the English language. It was used by the totalitarian regime as a tool to limit free-thought; concepts outside of the established verbal construct were considered “thought-crime”. Concepts like freedom, rebellion, individuality, and peace could not be verbally explained within the confines of newspeak: “If thought corrupts language, language can also corrupt thought.” ― George Orwell, 1984 However, they didn’t just ban words, they changed them too. For example, the word “free” still existed in newspeak but could only be used in terms of something not being possessed, as in, “the dog is free from lice” or, “this field is free from weeds.” It could not be used in terms of being able to do as one pleases, as in “free choice” or “free will” since these concepts no longer existed. “We do not merely destroy our enemies; we change them.” ― George Orwell, 1984 As you have likely realized by now, I’m about to make more outrageous comparisons between Feminism and Socialism. However this time I’m just going to use Nineteen Eighty-Four as a precursory comparison. I won’t force conclusions on you at every turn, I’ll let you do that for yourself with each example. So let’s hit it.   5. Sexism is always misogyny Despite what everyone seems to think, sexism is not inherently bad. Sexism is, by definition: Prejudice or discrimination on the basis of gender. So prejudice is bad, but discrimination? Well it has two meanings: (1) The unjust or prejudicial treatment of different categories of people or things (2) Recognition and understanding of the difference between one thing and another.   If we combine the meaning of sexist and the second meaning of discrimination we have: Recognizing the difference between the sexes. What we can conclude is that discrimination, and therefore sexism, is amoral. For example: I would hook up with a girl but not a guy, not because I’m homophobic, not because I’m misandrist, but because I’m being sexist. I’m discriminating between potential hook-ups on the basis of gender. Or...
