“[Liberal males’] coastal elitist mommies and daddies, or other mommies, plop them down in some leftist college where the pierced and piercing fascist feminists get to work on them. These shrill harridans, aided and abetted by university administrators who have volunteered to go full Theon, then commence to mercilessly nag the poor femboys about toxic masculinity and accuse them of imposing patriarchy – as if these weenies could ever impose any kind of –archy on anyone. Pretty soon, these broken-spirited biomales have renounced their manly heritage and are sipping Chuck Shaw chardonnay spritzers and adopting cats. The only way to save these lost souls is a massive infusion of guns and Guinness and V8 engines, stat.” –  Kurt Schlichter in Liberals Surrender to the Awesome Power of Conservative Sexiness [via townhall.com]

    • OP’s got some issues. Seems to think masculinity is something that can be purchased at Cabelas. With no mention of a knife (a tool that actually requires masculine talent) I read that the author is just window shopping for man traits and wouldn’t know a Y chromosome if it hit him in the Patagonades.

      • Sarcasm and satire appear to be lost on you. The highlight of the piece is his assertion that leftists are not reproducing at the same rate as conservatives. Which is a good thing in the long run. And I can confirm the notion that plenty of leftist women are attracted to conservative “real” men.

        • Yup. My wife was a Hillary supporter in 2007 when we met. She voted McCain in 2008 and has never looked back. Once you go Red, you won’t stop til you’re dead.

    • Rule of thumb refers to an old woodworking term, not that the law said you could beat your wife with a switch no wider then your thumb. The feminazis made up that little bit of bs. No western nation has had a law legalizing the beating of women.

      • Kind of…. it’s only in the last 100 years that the concept that you couldn’t rape your wife has existed. Being able to demand sex, forcefully if desired, was considered a matrimonial privilege.

        • It depends on the nation at the time, as it does now. In colonial America, “wife beating” was a sure trip to the stockade. In mondern times, in many Muslim countries, its not only legal, but encouraged

  1. Being liberal makes life easier, less responsibility, and bonus moral superiority. You don’t really need a job, just live off your white supremacist patriarchal parents, because they just wanted to be your slaves anyway. No one expects you to succeed in life, so you don’t try, so then you don’t fail in life! WIN-WIN-WIN!

      • Just for the record, there isn’t a single hemi head engine in production in the world right now as far as I know. What Dodge is currently calling a “Hemi” is actually a polyspherical combustion chamber. The valve geometry of a hemi with 4-valves per cylinder is damn near impossible.

        • I keep wondering when the Dodge fan-boys are going to figure out that ‘Hemi’ means half. Or maybe they’re just proud to own a half engine?

        • Isn’t he Ford BOSS engine some sort of semi-hemi? You can get huge ones from race suppliers, still.

        • Yes, it’s a HEMIspherical combustion chamber. So take a sphere, cut that in half and that’s what the piston/cylinder head. Great crossflow breathing but poor emissions and inability to have more than 2 valves per cylinder. Many engines used to be hemis even if they weren’t advertised as such. I used to have a 1969 Porsche 911T and that had a 2.0L Flat-6 Hemi.

        • why would i want a fully spherical combustion chamber? other than an acetylene filled balloon, that is.
          my’71 colt (mishi heavy galant) had a 1.6l hemi.

      • There’s a dirty joke in that comment somewhere LMAO!
        On topic:
        Boys need to learn to respect women, just as they should respect other men, and to behave in a way that makes them worthy of receiving respect back in kind from others. This does not mean they need to be turned into whimpy, whiney subservient gimps groveling at the feet of girls. Like wise girls need to learn to be tough and independent and not take shit from any jerkwads they encounter, and not end up in the same situation. There must be mutual respect, there must be emotional toughness and resilience. Is there a history of male domination in society? kinda, but there’s been a lot of tough and courageous women out there too. Don’t shelter and pamper your kids to the point they can’t stand up for themselves. , boys or girls, teach them all to be emotionally secure, independent, free-thinking badasses and to show respect where it is due.

        Problem is the radical arm of feminism (beyond thinking that women should be treated equally with men), is that they want revenge for the perceived history of repression, and the best way to do that is beat down the emotionally sensitive boys they encounter. It’s a gross over correction.

  2. With a 20 trillion dollar debt and even more massive unfunded entitlement liabilities, it kinda hardly matters at this point. We’re going over the edge. Non-“pajama boys” will fall more gracefully but probably still go splat at the bottom. I guess that has to be enough.

    • “With a 20 trillion dollar debt and even more massive unfunded entitlement liabilities, it kinda hardly matters at this point.”

      This is an existential threat to our nation that no one seems to realize.

      Perhaps this will help people realize the extent of the threat:
      (1) Our national debt is 20 trillion dollars.
      (2) Every man, woman, and child’s share of that debt is $60,000.
      (3) A family of four thus has a debt of $240,000.
      (4) That family of four would have to pay $887 each month for 30 years to pay off their share of the national debt assuming just 2% interest.

      How many families of four can afford an additional expense of $887 each month for the next 30 years, in addition to their existing rent or house payment and all other living expenses?

      And this doesn’t even account for the unfunded liabilities looming ahead of us.

      Note: families WILL be paying that additional $887 each month one way or another. Whether they pay it in actual taxes to the federal government or via reduced buying power when the dollar inevitably loses value is the only question at this point.

      • A “few” million illegals (and legals) say they don’t own nuttin. YOU (and I) let them in.

        Squatters/trespassers don’t have any ownership responsibility. Revise your $ accordingly

        • While true, that amount does NOT go to paying down our national debt. It goes to everything else.

    • And it wasn’t the young who got us here (though plenty of “young” people have played their part). Ever since Roosevelt and the Democrats started pushing entitlements, and Republicans started to not stand up to them, we’ve been heading down this road. Ponzi schemes only work for the people at the top who get out before it goes bust.

      • I saw this last election cycle and after… It’s easy to get elected but when democrats push and republicans back down at the first sign of a conflict that might make it into the media… and you know the media is owned by democrats… then you should see the problem. We need a new breed of republicans, one with fire in their eyes, and a loud profanity ridden speech that gets people fired up.

    • It cracks me up to hear the words “Our debt.”

      It is Congress and Congress alone that owes the debt.

      Hope they hold a few bake sales to try and get that down to a paltry 3 or 4 trillion.

      Because there’s no way I’m paying off someone else’s spending spree. You are welcome to be a good Samaritan and donate to the cause if you want to.

      • GunDoc,

        It is OUR debt because OUR Congress incurred that debt on EVERYONE’S behalf. The fact that many/most of us received no benefit of that debt is an entirely different discussion.

        Being more pragmatic, how is OUR Congress going to raise the money to pay-off that debt? Answer: the only way that they can — through taxes.

        • How about they demand a refund of the bailout the banks all received after the 2008 GFC, which they caused.

        • The banks repaid those debts–with interest. In fact, demonstrating that they are truly greedy bastards who overcharge for everything (especially credit card debt), Bank of America paid its debt off early.

        • Inflating the money supply would be the easiest and least transparent way. They already do that to some extent. Their used to be periods of deflation, not anymore.

    • As to the use of the term “pajama boy,” what happened to going with terms like pantywaist, nancy boy, pansy, sissy, or, dare I say it, fag (which seems to be the go to among the gays I’ve met when criticizing effeminate men).

    • I like cats too. Don’t see a problem with men liking cats. As I commented yesterday on the original piece, cats are natural hunters and enjoy it for sport.

      • Exactly! And if it comes down to an apocalyptic scuffle, even though I’ve never met your cat I’m pretty sure that my cat could kick your cat’s butt… even though she’s just a girl! 🙂

      • Cats are independent and tough. Plus they really don’t give a hoot about much of anything except food and violence. What’s not to love?

        • And quite frankly, pound for pound a much more vicious animal than a dog. My 13lb terror of claws and teeth would tear the throat out of any similarly sized dog.

    • I have two Chihuahuas. And two German shepherds. And a Catahoula Bulldog. Tried a cat, but the German Shepherds ate it.

      • The daughter’s cat bullies and intimidates the wife’s dog, despite being outweighed more than two to one. That cat has toughness and attitude!

        Okay, yeah I carry at home and out, and yes I own an extra large pickup with a 10 mpg (down hill with tailwind) size engine. Thing is, I am old enough not to give a sh!t what people think of what I drive. Vehicles are tools, just like my guns.

    • I’m a gun guy and a cat guy. I like their independence, their quirky personalities, and the fact that they keep my home free of small critters.

    • Cats are good to have around when the SHTF… as are rabbits, squirrels, pigeons, feral hogs and any other easily obtained protein.

  3. Haha, this shrill bravado bs is why the number of gun owners is dropping. No one wants to fit in your nonsense cookie cutter ‘I’m a real man if I like dumbass V8s and Guinness’ crap.

    • Hmmm, pretty sure gun ownership as a percentage is at an all time high. Pretty sure guns on the market is at an all time high. Pretty sure public support for gun rights is at an all time high. The number of gun owners is dropping? Just shove your head as far up your ass as you can, take a deep breath, and say “Thank goodness I’m a liberal and am therefore so morally superior that I don’t even need facts anymore!”

    • Newsflash dootdootboop:

      The number of firearm owners is increasing.

      Sure, we should dismiss the mindset that you are not a man if you are not a beer swilling commando blasting your shotgun out the window of your big truck with a V-8 engine.

      We should also dismiss the mindset that men should be quiet, meek, milquetoast individuals who are afraid of their own shadow and whose only value are as sperm donors to feminist women.

      What should we be doing? We should be encouraging all people to be capable, confident, smart, wise, responsible, strong, charitable, and proud of their sex (whether male or female). That applies to children, teens, adults, males, and females.

      • I roll my eyes at anybody who’s so hardcore into a hobby that it becomes their identity. Right, Left, Sports, Cars, even Guns. But the idea that an article like this would dissuade anyone from buying a gun is preposterous. The idea that articles like this have driven gun ownership down is easily proven to be fantasy.

        • ” . . . I roll my eyes at anybody who’s so hardcore into a hobby that it becomes their identity. . .”

          In this, you could not be more entirely wrong. Human identity is, in fact, both elaborated and enhanced by participation in subcultures (aka: “hobbies” — your word). People who’s lives, because of work demands, locality, or absent social skills, don’t involve membership in subcultures, tend to have more ephemeral, less satisfying, lifestyles.

          It is from subcultures that we acquire essential skills like changing a head gasket, field-dressing a deer shot with a Hawken muzzle-loader, or knowing how to stay warm in the woods on a wet sub-zero day.

          Cosmopolites, people who live in mega-cities, basically live truncated lives, the narrowness of which, generally prevent them from acquiring essential life-skills that male children out in fly-over country have traditionally been expected to know. Many don’t even have diver’s licenses. The “Cajun Navy” and the thousands of other rescuers who came to Houston and Beaumont didn’t need official permission or instructions because they already knew what they needed to do. They were and are the antithesis of cosmopolites.

        • Garrison, a shit ton of people in boats rescuing people in the Beaumont and Houston area were already in the Beaumont and Houston area because they live there.

          I started hunting when I lived in Houston. Sure, I had to leave Houston to do it, but most people who hunt don’t do as close to where they live as I did when I lived in Houston.

        • You’ll get no argument from me about Houston/Beaumont/Pt. Arthur people helping themselves. Despite being a big place, I don’t regard Houston or even DFW as being a “mega-city”. Despite their size, there is enough of a rural-urban continuum in place to offset the dominance of cosmopolitian culture. The mega-cities are on the densely populated coasts.

      • A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects (also stereotypes and pajama boys).

        Lazarus Long

        • Well, I’m not going to claim I can do all of those things. But I can with my own income provide a house, food, clothing, and education for my wife, 3 kids, and my puppy. On top of that I help cook, clean, change diapers, mow the lawn, weed the garden and any number of household chores. Because if heaven forbid something ever happened to my wife, I would have sole responsibility for my children.

          The day someone wants to tell me how I’m missing some component of being a man is the day that person and their opinion cease to matter to me. Similarly, while I’ll form opinions about other people’s manliness, they’ll learn the errors of their ways or will succeed in life. Neither outcome will be changed if I voice my opinion.

        • At Timothy:
          I’m right there with you. With all of our real responsibilities it’s difficult to keep the leaches and parasites in the state and the sucklers of the states’ at bay. I have a raced enough time raising my own children, I don’t have time to raise adults who act like children.

    • While Mr. Schlichter’s conclusion does ring stupid, from the polls I have seen, it is not clear that gun ownership has been going down the last few years. The CBS poll being an outlier, it kinda looks like the gun ownership rate has been going up since 2011.

        • I am indeed a recluse, so you got that part right, but I don’t think I vouched for the polls. However, the recent polls along with more reliable sales and license data seems to indicate that gun ownership is going up.

    • You’re addorable. You think real men care about the opinions of emasculated clowns like you.

      What is best in life?
      Crush the liberals, see them triggered before you, and hear the lamentations of their pyjama boys.

        • So that’s where he got that. I thought he was paraphrasing something from Ecclesiastes or Proverbs, or something close.

        • I think the original is Genghis Khan.

          Here is what the IMDB website says about it: “Conan’s response to the Mongol General is an abbreviation of a real quote attributed to Genghis Khan: “The greatest pleasure is to vanquish your enemies and chase them before you, to rob them of their wealth and see those dear to them bathed in tears, to ride their horses and clasp to your bosom their wives and daughters.” Subotai (or Subedei Baghadur) was the name of Great Khan’s general. The fact that Conan is not only chased but to some extent orphaned by dogs also recalls Genghis Khan’s well-documented fear of that particular animal. Finally, the writers’ preoccupation with steel seems oddly coincidental, given that Genghis Khan’s birth name, Temujin, is frequently translated as “finest steel.””

    • There are about a quarter as many gun owners as when the nation was founded, which si to say, 100% of those people were armed. 3/4 of us. Every day, a new liberal gets his wings and discovers the truth they so long denied, and goes to buy a gun.

      • “There are about a quarter as many gun owners as when the nation was founded, which si to say, 100% of those people were armed.”

        Misconception. Guns were quite expensive back then, and those living in the larger cities were less likely to own one.

        On the frontier, a farmer might have one or two rifles among a family of five or more.

  4. Right now the wisest course of action has already been taken by men by limiting or even eliminating relationships with women purely out of self defense. Its become apparent that in serious relationships such as marraige, men end up with the dirty end of the stick when relationships end.
    MGTOW

    • Well, considering that women earn the majority of college degrees nowadays, the gender wage gap has long since disappeared (yes, it’s true, once you adjust for industries worked in, years of experience, degree field, etc.). Moreover, the most likely assailant of a woman who is murderered is her current or former intimate partner, it looks like women should practice some physical and financial self-defense themselves and let men go their own way alone.

      For those occasions when women don’t want to go it alone, they can always just swipe right and take care of business without the commitment risks.

    • First of all, the law makes the men and women generally equal in court. Laws were written to do that. A few judges and some cities have outdated laws, so in marriage things are pretty equal.

      Accusations of rape, assault, and when fighting are different. What I hate is that men claim women got the upper hand and are angry about it, when the simple solution is to treat them as equals but different, and walk away from a woman who is a problem. You cannot argue with someone who does not engage with you, so don’t engage with her. Walk away. Stop running your mouth. Treat her as a person instead of someone you have a claim on.

      And for God’s sake, reinstate Patriarchy! Libs have been trying to kill it for years, and are failing left and right. Real men do exist, and real leaders do exist. Find you a woman that wants to be equal to you, then divide the household into yours and hers, and let her shine. But I can tell you this… if you spend your time seeking money and property, instead of a marriage, then you’re going to be MOGOW.

    • Schlichter’s just kind of a Trump cheerleader. He’s fun for a laugh, but I don’t take his commentary too seriously.

  5. Don’t worry about changing the world as it is, just make sure your house is in order. Every family needs a strong male figure. Be that man for your sons and daughters. Then they will go out into the world; the daughters will seek out a strong man, the sons will seek to become a strong man. And they will erase the lineage of the sissy man.

    This is a temporary phase.

    • Phil LA,

      I am totally on the same page.

      Having said that, we (as in good people) are in serious trouble if we don’t start having large families. People who embrace, promote, live, and propagate destructive values and lifestyles are having 5, 6, 7, even 10 or more children.

      I don’t see how healthy, productive values can persist in our nation if our children fail to have equally large families.

        • I’d guess he’s calling out Hispanics and blacks. The majority of Hispanic women have 3 or more children in their lifetime. 20% have 4 or more.

          For blacks, it’s 40% with 3 or more, and 18% with 4 or more.

          Compare that to whites (34% with 3+, 11% with 4+) and Asians (18% with 3+, and just 10% with 4+.)

          Ethnicities aside, the real reproductive race is between idiots and the intelligent. I read a stat a couple a years ago, which I have been unable to find again since, which reported that smart people are waiting longer to have children and having fewer children when they do.

          The result was that if you and your spouse are smart (say, I.Q. of about 110 or more, placing you in the top 25%), then you need to have had three children by the time you were 27, just to keep up with the idiots. Otherwise, you’re being produced.

        • I happen to know one Catholic family and one Mormon family and they both have a lot of children. ALL the other families of “good people” that I know have either one or two children.

          While I do not agree with Catholic and Mormon religious doctrine, I firmly believe that both are “good people” who raise “good” children.

          The people who are rapidly on track to out-populate us are parents, of all colors/ethnicities, whose children have:
          (1) multiple fathers
          (2) more foul mouths at the age of 6 than sailors
          (3) zero interest in education
          (4) no reservations lying, stealing, and cheating.
          (5) violent default responses to slights
          (6) zero personal responsibility
          (7) zero respect for human life

    • I looooooove me some motorsports of all kinds but there are few sounds more vile to my ears than the sound of an unmuffled 45 degree V-twin. Except maybe a Ford V6.

  6. I don’t think this kind of rhetoric is going to win many hearts and minds.

    Do I care what, or if, you drink? No. Do I care what you drive? Also no. Do I care what gender you associate with (take that phrase however you will)? Not in the slightest.

    Do I care whether you make an effort to take care of yourself and your loved ones? Do I care whether you have enough self-respect to want to be contributor rather than a taker? You betcha – because if the answer is yes we have a basis for conversation, whereas “no” means our worldviews are so different it’s not likely anything beyond a nod-in-passing is likely to be worthwhile.

    Unfortunately for all the takers out there, while it may be close, I suspect the technologically singularity and the end of scarcity will project to occurring after we hit economic collapse from all the non-discretionary non-value-add spending kick the world is on at the moment.

    • I agree with you. That kind of rah rah bullshit only serves to pump up those who agree with it. It stigmatizes the opposition and presents a false narrative as to their origin. It’s useless drivel written by insecure people who feel a constant need to put others down.

      And then he had to throw Guinness in there. Could he not think of a great American beer, like a Bourbon Barrel Stout? Fool.

      • Agree. I personally think Guinness tastes like shit. And, while I know a lot of people truly love it, I also believe a significant percentage of Guinness drinkers hate it, too, but fancy the thought of being a Guinness drinker. Much like that skunky-ass Heineken.
        Apologies to those of you who actually DO love Guinness (or Heineken), I mean you no offense.

        • The thing is, when someone is being a beer snob and talking down to me because of the beer I am drinking, my general response is something along the lines of f-you. Standing up for yourself is more manly than drinking any particular beer. I like Guinness. What’s not to like. It’s made with meat. I also like the “lite” beers as well. I don’t like most craft beers. A few are really good, some are good, and most are garbage.

  7. I don’t think this kind of rhetoric is going to win many hearts and minds.

    Do I care what, or if, you drink? No. Do I care what you drive? Also no. Do I care what gender you associate with (take that phrase however you will)? Not in the slightest.

  8. The article is exhibit A why the Republicans are doomed. Who cares if some poor Marxist indoctrinated woman is hooking up with random Trump supporters. She is not having kids and if she did they sure as hell wouldn’t be conservatives with her as a mother. I like how the article magics up conservative kids from the aether to scrape out a happy ending. Reality check there is no rosy demographic future for conservatives. The numbers do not lie, the future belongs to who the government is importing and subsidizing to breed. We are being replaced.

    • CLarson,

      “The numbers do not lie, the future belongs to who the government is importing and subsidizing to breed. We are being replaced.”

      See my reply to Phil LA above.

      • I saw it and I don’t see anything wrong with conservatives having large families. But asking traditional American families to have more kids is not a political solution. What we really need to do is stop the invasion of our lands. If the third world wants to breed themselves silly that is their prerogative as long as they do it somewhere else than the West and not on our public dime.

        • “But asking traditional American families to have more kids is not a political solution.”

          Unless you can convince the courts, law enforcement, juries, and government revenue bureaucrats to do what is right rather than doing what the demi-god legislatures tell them to do (via laws), asking traditional American families to have more kids is the ONLY solution.

          While it is right to close the southern border and stop even more invaders from entering our country, there are enough people already here to wreck the nation in one, or at most two generations.

        • 2nd and 3rd generation Hispanics are basically the same as white people in their voting habits. That’s why the Hispanics in Texas vote so differently than the Hispanics everywhere else. Most of them have been here forever.

        • In fact many have been there since that land actually belonged to Mexico and the border jumped them, not the other way around.

        • That’s what happens when the central government disbanded the constitution. Texas says no, successfully.

      • “X” dog whistle – a thing that doesn’t actually have anything to do with x, but the speaker wishes to imply that it does.

  9. YMMV

    Here’s the thing. Women in general love to bitch and moan. Real men don’t unless there’s a real goddamn good reason to. Usually it’s either get things done or don’t worry about it. So when you get a large enough population of women who’ve been led to believe that they have a reason to complain, when in reality it’s nothing, you got two options to deal with it. 1. Ignore it as best you can, but put up with CONSTANT nagging. 2. Give in so they shut up. “Putting them in their place” isn’t really an option because well, that’s what Sharia Law does. We have been giving in to their petty demands for so long, we’ve forgotten how to say “No”, and so the people in power have lost the ability to say “no”. And now, women are out of control and are infiltrating and/or destroying everything that’s has been historically masculine. Boy Scouts now allow girls for example. Women have all these groups and programs to help and nurture them and men have virtually nothing. Men can’t have anything for themselves without having it called “misogynist” or whatever. And worst of all is that, whether by corrupt family courts or legitimate deadbeats, fathers are increasingly absent from young boy’s lives. Mothers raise children of their own and without the strong male role model, they either get screwed up by their mother, or try to find a role model in the media, which usually depicts men in an either bad or unrealistic manner anyway. Women and mothers are not fathers. They can’t provide male nurturing. Women are destroying or corrupting men and boys at every phase in their lives. Some intentionally and others unknowingly. Here’s how I see what needs to happen.

    First: Establish “Men/Boys only, no exceptions ever” groups. No more of this letting girls into the Boys Scouts BS. If women like what happens in a guys group, make it themselves.

    Second: Destroy and rebuild family court systems. Women are overwhelmingly the ones who make out in divorce and child custody battles.

    Third: Introduce some old fashioned manly culture back into society. Boys reading about the exploits of Teddy Roosevelt or the heroes of World War 2. Thing like that.

    Forth: Guys…keep it in your pants. If you can’t imagine yourself raising kids with someone or seeing the person as a good mother to your kids, just don’t. I partially blame the openly promiscuous culture of this country for the decline of the family. And at the end of the day, the decline of family is what’s killing our boys.

    There’s alot more that could be said about this but I’m going to leave it at that for now.

    • To hell with TR. That progressive SOB and WIlson were about 2 degrees of separation apart. TR was 90% outright BS and “messaging”.

      TR and Wilson and their ilk thought they their women of a century ago would STFU if men GAVE them the vote. Right STFU. All went down hill from their. TR should have known better. Wilson was taking the US in the direction that the progtards intended.

      • One of the many reasons why I think the franchise needs to be restricted to property owning men. The county ran fine when people who voted with their brains and not their feelings called the shots. Same reason why there will never be a female president. Sorry ladies, but your biology makes you inherently less rational.

        • “Same reason why there will never be a female president. Sorry ladies, but your biology makes you inherently less rational.”

          We came *far* too close to just that during the last lap around the block.

          Better get used to the idea of it happening sometime in the next few election cycles, because it’s likely inevitable.

          (*Note* – I didn’t say I liked the idea of it, but my money is on it happening, Likely sooner than later.)

          EDIT – I’ve spent the last few days on hurricane debris cleanup. Your observation on dry socks was spot-on. Spending the hours I have had in the past few days with wet feet flat *sucks*…

    • There are plenty of men only groups. I’d bet you aren’t a member of any of them. Most of them are seen as “old men” groups. The reason for that is that young men don’t join them. The Mason’s and the Knights of Columbus are two examples. (Most of the ones I can find are also limited to Catholics).

  10. There’s no need to save the American male. They are not defined by stouts, or V8 engines, or guns. They are defined by beings the ones who don’t get saved, yet survive and even thrive regardless.

  11. IMO, the problem is population/technological/societal evolution. With more energy available, we can sustain larger populations, allowing us to specialize further. In the not too distant past, almost everyone was a farmer/hunter and a warrior – if you didn’t farm or hunt then in times of peace you didn’t eat, and if you weren’t a warrior then in times of war you didn’t eat!

    In more modern times we have advanced so rapidly precisely because with our available energy, population and material resources we can severely specialize, there simply isn’t a need for a lot of farmers/hunters anymore. And because we’ve had relative peace for such a long time, there also isn’t a need for many warriors either… until the next world war, then I don’t expect the communication and liberal arts majors to survive very long.

      • My neighbor’s cat marches into my house any time he likes and spends an inordinate amount of effort, trying his best to knock over anything he possibly can. Pile of papers, piles of CDs, my best guitar in its case, anything at all. But he looks so proud of his achievements and is just so darn cute besides, that he is easily forgiven. I admire any animal with full confidence in its abilities.

  12. With so many quality domestic beers, why does this ass feel anyone needs to drink some un-American import brew?

    Compact car with a 4-cylinder has lower fuel consumption than a V8 – less money spent on fuel means more money to spend on guns and ammo.

  13. Some while back the NYT posted an article about the “Modern Man”. It was truly a pathetic viewpoint of manhood and took stabs at gun ownership as well. Seems like a good time to share my thoughts on the matter…

    New York Times – The Modern Man
    Corrected
    Modern
    Adjective – of or relating to the present or recent times as opposed to the remote past
    Noun – a person who advocates or practices a departure from traditional styles or values
    Antonym – old, old fashioned, past, ancient, antiquated, obsolete, outdated, passé

    The “Modern” Man – Exactly what does that mean? Does that mean that modern men should be different from past generations? Were our forefathers not “modern” men of their times? And exactly what does it mean to be a man?
    I was raised with respect for tradition, family, church, elders, women, and country. Are these qualities no longer considered acceptable? It seems as though this author is blending the traditional roles of masculine and feminine to re-define man. Sorry folks, men are from Mars and women are from Venus. This doesn’t mean that a real man doesn’t actually eat quiche. And it doesn’t mean he isn’t empa-thetic. It just means that he isn’t pa-thetic.

    1. When the modern man buys shoes for his spouse, he doesn’t have to ask her sister for the size. And he knows which brands run big or small.
    A real man is smart enough to know that buying any clothing items for his spouse is a fool’s errand. He learned this early in life when Mom bought clothing that was neither in style, cool, nor fit. Men are not women, and to pretend to understand what personal items your spouse may like is about as stupid as asking them to decide which type of athletic supporter you should wear.
    2. The modern man never lets other people know when his confidence has sunk. He acts as if everything is going swimmingly until it is.
    A real man has got to know his limitations. The only one you’re really lying to is yourself. A real man admits when he has made a mistake and learns from it.
    3. The modern man is considerate. At the movie theater, he won’t munch down a mouthful of popcorn during a quiet moment. He waits for some ruckus.
    Agreed.
    4. The modern man doesn’t cut the fatty or charred bits off his fillet. Every bite of steak is a privilege, and it all goes down the hatch.
    Awe bullshit. A real man feeds these parts to his best friend, his dog.
    5. The modern man won’t blow 10 minutes of his life looking for the best parking spot. He finds a reasonable one and puts his car between the lines.
    Unless his spouse is in the car. Then he does what he is told.
    6. Before the modern man heads off to bed, he makes sure his spouse’s phone and his kids’ electronic devices are charging for the night.
    A real man knows to keep his hands off his spouse’s things. The kids are on their own. They spend too much time on those damn things anyway.
    7. The modern man buys only regular colas, like Coke or Dr Pepper. If you walk into his house looking for a Mountain Dew, he’ll show you the door.
    Awe bullshit. A real man drinks whatever he damn well feels like. If that happens to be a Dew or diet then so be it. But you won’t ever see him with one of those energy drinks containing Taurine (Bull Piss) in his hand. A real man knows piss doesn’t belong in your mouth.
    8. The modern man uses the proper names for things. For example, he’ll say “helicopter,” not “chopper” like some gauche simpleton.
    A real man calls it what it is and is expedient about it. They aren’t diagonal side cutting plyers, they are Dikes. And we call them Dike(s) because they only come in pairs.
    9. Having a daughter makes the modern man more of a complete person. He learns new stuff every day.
    A real man strives to learn something new every day. Having a daughter is simply another joy in life and not the only reason to learn new stuff. Now the young man who comes a courting; he learns a few things quick when he meets Dad for the first time.
    10. The modern man makes sure the dishes on the rack have dried completely before putting them away.
    If only this was the mantra of the modern child.
    11. The modern man has never “pinned” a tweet, and he never will.
    What’s a tweet?
    12. The modern man checks the status of his Irish Spring bar before jumping in for a wash. Too small, it gets swapped out.
    Awe bullshit. A real man gets out of the shower, drips water all the way back to the soap stash, tears the box in two, and drips water all the way back to the shower. Then he takes the small wimpy wet piece and rubs it through the drain screen with his foot. It’s a piece of soap. It doesn’t warrant much thought.
    13. The modern man listens to Wu-Tang at least once a week.
    What the fuck is Wu-Tang?
    14. The modern man still jots down his grocery list on a piece of scratch paper. The market is no place for his face to be buried in the phone.
    A real man already knows everything he needs at the grocery store and lists are for women. He systematically walks every single isle like running a standard search grid and still misses one or two items.
    15. The modern man has hardwood flooring. His children can detect his mood from the stamp of his Kenneth Cole oxfords.
    What the fuck is an oxford and why the hell are you wearing shoes in the house anyway?
    16. The modern man lies on the side of the bed closer to the door. If an intruder gets in, he will try to fight him off, so that his wife has a chance to get away.
    25. The modern man has no use for a gun. He doesn’t own one, and he never will.
    Where the hell is she going to go? Out the window? A real man keeps his everyday carry gun on the night stand. His dog is already trying to feast on the intruder while the real man wipes the sleepies out of his eyes and gears up. A real man’s wife already has his back with her bigger gun and is looking to protect the kids while he deals with the intruder. She’s already got 911 speed dialed and calling for an ambulance for the intruder. A real man doesn’t shrug his responsibility to protect his family with namby-pamby fears of inanimate objects. A real man knows what tool works best for what job. A real man’s kids know where all the guns and ammunition are and they have been taught proper use, safety, and respect. A real man’s kids are as much as a threat to an intruder as mom and dad are.
    17. Does the modern man have a melon baller? What do you think? How else would the cantaloupe, watermelon and honeydew he serves be so uniformly shaped?
    Abso-fucking-lutely not. A real man cuts the damn thing in half with his pocket knife and chomps away. Ok, in company, he uses a spoon, maybe.
    18. The modern man has thought seriously about buying a shoehorn.
    A real man already has the right tool for the job. He doesn’t have to think seriously about something so trivial. A real man’s Dad gave him the one his Grandpa gave him and he will pass it on to his eldest son.
    19. The modern man buys fresh flowers more to surprise his wife than to say he is sorry.
    Yeah, cause it’s always a good idea to surprise his wife with something that’s on its deathbed. A real man has an account at the local jewelry store and forgoes the dying plants. A real man surprises his wife with trips to Bermuda or a new gun.
    20. On occasion, the modern man is the little spoon. Some nights, when he is feeling down or vulnerable, he needs an emotional and physical shield.
    Do not try and bend the spoon. That’s impossible. Instead… only try to realize the truth.
    What truth?
    There is no spoon.
    There is no spoon?
    Then you’ll see, that it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself.
    21. The modern man doesn’t scold his daughter when she sneezes while eating an apple doughnut, even if the pieces fly everywhere.
    Does this really need to be said? A real man would be ROFLAO. Yeah, we know what that means dear.
    22. The modern man still ambles half-naked down his driveway each morning to scoop up a crisp newspaper.
    A real man smacks the newspaper boy until he understands the paper belongs neatly on the porch railing every morning.
    23. The modern man has all of Michael Mann’s films on Blu-ray (or whatever the highest quality thing is at the time).
    A real man has a library of classic books and reads them. A real man keeps up with current events and can talk intelligently about them. A real man has no need for a shelf full of modern movies he can download at any time if he wishes.
    24. The modern man doesn’t get hung up on his phone’s battery percentage. If it needs to run flat, so be it.
    It’s a phone. A real man’s first indication there’s a problem is when the display is blank.
    26. The modern man cries. He cries often.
    A real man cries just like any other human being. How often he cries depends upon the trials of his life; some more, some less. But certainly he doesn’t cry to gain sympathy.
    27. People aren’t sure if the modern man is a good dancer or not. That is, until the D.J. plays his jam and he goes out there and puts on a clinic.
    God either gave you dance genes or he didn’t. A real man doesn’t care one way or the other.

    • A real man puts quotations in italics look up “how to use html italics”

      otherwise most of your stuff isn’t far wrong.

      I had to a search on “What the fuck is Wu-Tang”. (NOT using any progtard Google). 2 seconds told me not to waste any time listening to an audio clip of such obvious metrosexual crapola.

        • “But it was a sleepless night with Jack or Jim, or Jose, I can’t remember which…”

          A real man remembers quite well what he got slammed on the night before, because he put in the time to buy just the right adult beverage for his well-deserved relaxation at the end of the day…

          *snicker* 🙂

    • “They aren’t diagonal side cutting plyers, they are Dikes. And we call them Dike(s) because they only come in pairs.”

      Hahahaha….. I had a job in my early 20’s working in electronics manufacturing. Was working on something one day and asked someone nearby to “hand me those dykes, please” and my lesbian coworker was nearby and heard me say that. She was cool, didn’t flip out or anything, but I had to explain to her that it’s the actual name of that particular tool.

  14. Meh…real men love JESUS,stand for what is right, model being a man for their kids(especially sons),love their wife and provide for/ protect their family. And that’s just the basics. We are NOT defined by our hobbies-or booze we drink.

  15. I’m seeing a few things here.
    1. Kurt Schlichter is likely gay. And that’s fine, Chef don’t judge.
    2. People don’t seem to understand what a man is, and it’s nothing more than a male adult. Got at lest one Y chromosome and take sole responsibility for yourself and the people who depend on you? You’re a man, welcome to the club. Sorry to tell you, the club has some hefty dues. Namely, you have to take care of yourself and the people who depend on you. All the time. No days off. No one is coming to help you.
    3. Any man that complaining that it’s a women’s fault that boys aren’t growing up to be men is part of the problem. That’s YOUR responsibility. Remember, you’re a man, right?

    • JWT

      You are confused, #2 is utter BS. Y chromosome makes a biological MALE. No queer can possibly be a MAN. The pixies have selfselected freekdom and degenerate. Its a free nation do what you want but STF away from me and my sons.

      Perhaps the Obumer DOD worked you over and confused you on this.

      • Apparently your ignorance has also affected your reading comprehension. The Y chromosome part is what defines you as male. The Y chromosome and taking responsibility for yourself and the people who depend on you is what makes you a man. If you have a Y chromosome and you do not take care of yourself and the people who depend on you, I don’t care what V8 you drive I don’t care about the puss you crush. You’re not a man.
        It has absolutely nothing to do with what gender you want to have sex with.
        Oh, and as a guy that joined immediately after 9/11, the vast majority of my military experience was under President Bush. Only my last tour was under President Obama.

        • Kurt Schlichter was the guy in uniform in Desert Storm and Kosovo decades before you did your service (thank you for that service). He didn’t insult you. That post was an excerpt of a longer column in Townhall. If it makes you feel better to call him gay, go ahead. I don’t think he cares, though his wife might. He was defending your right to do so long before you took on that duty.

        • Lava Shark, first, that quote was pretty insulting to a lot of people, and second yeah, he sounds like he might be gay. I appreciate the service of any field grade officer, gay or not. I especially appreciate a field grade officer that knows how to get out of the way of the people that do the actual work. The good Colonel correctly described his reserve service as “mostly trying to just stay oriented to whatever was going on.” Right attitude, sir.

        • It was meant to be insulting, obviously. To beta male progressives in the form of the Pajama Boy caricature. I’m not sure exactly where this special talent you think you have for spotting gayness in someone you’ve never met comes from. In his entire column he never mentions homosexuality even once. That’s your obsession, not his.

          As to his military credentials, well, as in most walks of life there are the doers and the boasters. If he’s humble about his service that tends to make me think he was more of a doer.

          I’m sure you backtracked and read his Townhall column and the Korey Lane article he was referencing. If you object to that so much, why not actually give a counter argument based on facts, rather than character assassination? I hope you’re not caught up in the popular trend of blind outrage addiction. It’s destroying this country.

    • Right. Because clearly no woman is ever at fault for anything. A woman can get away with beating her husband with a frying pan. People will find it funny. A man gives a bitch five across the face and his ass is going to jail. That’s the problem with modern society. Women have all the privileges and none of the responsibilities.

        • Maybe, JWT, but I know some mean girls who are perfectly willing and able to cut your throat with a rusty blade, steal the money from your oozing corpse and spend it at the nail salon. And only some of those mean girls are still in prison.

        • Ralph, absolutely, they’s some ruthless ass ho’s out there. But getting involved with them, much less knocking them up, is a man’s own damn fault.

        • Yes, the manly thing is to give the ho five across the face and tell her to calm her tits. But I suppose in JW world, spousal abuse is ok only so long as it’s female on male. The point is that women can’t have it both ways. If they want to be treated equally, any woman who attacks me will wake up in the hospital just like a man. But the problem is that feminazis want to eat their cake and have it too.

          Oh, and FYI, quite a few women are good at hiding the crazy until they have their victim locked down.

        • In my opinion, the only time it is justified to hit a woman is when it is legal (and even then, only most of the time). Sometimes it is justified to hit a man when it isn’t legal.

        • … and? Some idiots need the stupid beat out of them. I don’t see how their genitalia makes an appreciable difference. Welcome to equality JW, if you consider it socially acceptable for a wife to slap her husband, I consider it socially acceptable for a husband to slap his wife.

          System replied to the wrong thread.

        • …and each one a justification of why women should always be prepared to defend themselves against Neanderthals like pwrserge. As a father of daughters, men like him are my worst nightmare.

        • Ok boyo, chivalry or equality. Pick one. Oh… and go grab your balls out of your favorite feminazi’s purse.

        • 1. Equal treatment does not mean equal ability.
          2. There are a vast quantity of things that men are simply better at than women. It’s why the world’s strongest woman still loses in an arm wrestling contest to a moderately fit man. It’s why men are far more common in high stress jobs. Denying basic biology is retarded.
          3. For evidence that women vote with their emotions rather than their brains, take a look at the rise of the welfare state and the family court system where a man can be ordered to pay child support for a child that he has proven isn’t his.

          In reality, I think everyone involve would be happier with the chivalry option. However, the feminazis demand to have voth and they can go get off with a jackhammer.

        • “a man can be ordered to pay child support for a child that he has proven isn’t his.”

          In Texas, at a certain point, he isn’t allowed to prove the kid isn’t his.

    • Yeah, it’s easy to be a dispenser of dismissive snark, but the problems of young men raised in single-parent (ie, female head of household) homes are real. Very often, there are two results that cause societal problems:

      1. The male child, who, after being smothered by his mother (and possibly grandmother & aunts) and lacking any male role models, doesn’t know how to be a man, and ends up as the onsie-wearing, hot-chocolate-sipping poster boy for Obamacare.

      2. The male child, who, lacking any male role models, and being largely ignored by his mother, becomes a feral predator. Look at American inner cities for this result.

      The first is what the author is half-addressing. The latter was predicted by none other than Daniel Patrick Moynihan in his seminal paper of the late 60’s, “The Negro Family: A Case for National Action.” What Moynihan failed to see in the 1960’s, but saw later in life, was that the rapid rise of single-parent households overall in the US made his warnings about the black family situation in 1965 applicable to the whole of US society.

      If the rate of single parent households by way of out-of-wedlock births for the general US population (now a bit under 40%) reaches the level where it is for black families (73%, last I looked), the US will be finished as a nation and a civilization. Feminists like to think that they’ll “end the patriarchy” by doing so, but the truth is, they’ll bring about a rather Hobbesian society.

    • “and take sole responsibility for yourself and the people who depend on you?” I think taking responsibility and being solely responsible is a key distinction that you hit upon. In any “buddy system,” more than one person is responsible. A real man makes sure the job gets done. He may later have to berate his “buddy.”

      • “A real man makes sure the job gets done.”
        That, right there, is the long and short of it. It sucks. We’re supposed to be a partnership, supposed to have support and be supported. But when that doesn’t work, a real man still takes care of his kids, still takes care of himself, still takes care of his community. We lead.

  16. http://www.artofmanliness.com/

    Go here, study, repeat until manly. This is just one resource, there are many. One of my favorite quotes about adult competency comes from “Time Enough for Love”:

    “A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.”
    -Robert A. Heinlein

    Let’s not forget the warrior-poet. A prominent example is King David. My Dad, the SgtMaj (USMC) also comes to mind…

  17. This is quite possibly the best thing I will read all week, and I spent a few minutes seeking out dank General Mattis memes for a morning meeting.

  18. I have cats & I’m probably more of a man than some preening wannabe alpha stereotype. Cats are a hell of alot better than dogs if you ask me.

  19. There will be backlash. There always is. To a certain extent there already is being that the femboys are mostly in their 20’s and 30’s now.

    Beat on anyone long enough they get sick of it. Femboy and feminazi children will grow to resent them.

    We’re on the verge of the “weak men make for hard times” part of the cycle and the children of these poof losers will eat them for nourishment.

  20. So, My choices are to either be a emasculated hen pecked “cuck” as they say in the vernacular of the idiot, or a cliche caricature? What a shitty choice.

    There is nothing inherently masculine about guns. I’ve known women who can shoot circles around most men, and there’s nothing many about firing a recoil free .223 and 9mm. How many AR fanboys would cry after a single shot with even a .300 win mag? Want to impress me with your breathtaking masculinity when it comes to firearms? Become proficient with an African big game rifle.

    And Guiness is a weak tea alcoholic beverage. It’s even weak in terms of stout. A real man won’t bother with a beer unless the ABV is at least 8% (10% is ideal). And further, if you’re truly a man, wouldn’t you stick to bourbon or scotch,100 proof or better, to be consumed neat only?

    Sounds like the author of the quoted piece needs to nut up a bit.

  21. Yeah, but the hippie chicks, they love the sexy time. Just make sure they have a pink hat rally scheduled after 15 minutes to an hour later so you can move on to your other manly pursuits.

  22. PFHT! Guinness? Why in the hell would you waste time drinking bad Irish floor cleaner when you could just drink whisky straight or moonshine LIKE A REAL MAN.

    Honestly, Guinness really is probably got to be the most over rated crap I’ve ever had in terms of beer. But then again I think ALL beer is over rated crap as is.

    • Well, if it’s the only option besides Bud Lite or Bush, I’ll have a guiness.

      There’s a seasonal barley wine produced by one of the many, many, many micro brews around here that has an ABV of 15%. That stuff hits hard and leaves your head screaming the next day.

  23. Having been on a “Round the World” beer night session, I think I’m qualified to discuss the merits of some of the world’s best beers. Asahi from Japan, Tiger from Singapore, LaBatts from Canada, Elephant beer from Denmark, Pilsner from Bohemia, Heineken from Holland, were all the standouts. Australian and American beers were a marked disappointment, all bland and lacking in presence, tang, zest and flavor.

    But be careful on any similar excursions. I gave up trying to drive my car home when I couldn’t get the key in the door lock, and I spent a while sleeping it off on a park bench. My wallet was stolen along with my bank cards, but the lightfingered locals left my asthma meds in my bag. Nice. As was the hangover…

  24. The women choose who to f***. They might enjoy being with a pussy but they love the dick. Nature has a way of keeping things in order.

  25. The problem with this is that most “manly” men have no idea what it means to be a man. It has nothing to do with “guns and Guinness and V8 engines” but rather strength, courage, mastery, and honor. Start teaching our boys about the importance of these four things and you’ll see many boys grow to be fine men in this nation.
