Men are naturally hard wired to be explorers, builders and fixers, but today’s feminizing culture has turned several generations into a bunch of helpless Nancy boys.
Inflammatory but true. Deal with it.
One of the purposes of this blog is to point these younger generations back in the right direction getting them in touch with their inner male. By learning to use tools to create or fix things in their life either by necessity or as a hobby or passion.
It used to be that young boys would learn from dad and grandpa about how to use a saw and drive a nail. Boys would build wooden go carts, dog houses, model cars, planes and spaceships. Nowadays men put glitter in their fabulous beards.
Mental tools are also a critical piece of the puzzle in putting men back together.
It’s not PC to say it, but men and women do think differently. Whole books shelves have been written on subject such as “Men are from Mars and Women from Venus”. It’s not a right or wrong thing, but it becomes wrong when women are encouraged to act like men, and men like women. That’s like forcing a Cocker Spaniel to lay eggs because someone thinks that dog is really a chicken.
Men need to acquire a manly mindset and one of the ways to do that is to associate with people who think that way.
Nothing happens in a vacuum, you need to be around people who challenge you either in person or online. The following are several blogs that have been instrumental to me in gaining a male mindset.
- Vox Popoli is great place to hang out, as the proprietor, Vox Day, covers a wide range of subjects including social sexual dynamics, economics, Social Justice Warriors and the Alt Right movement. See also his blog Alpha Game.
- Mike Cernovich at Danger & Play covers the area of Gorilla Mindset to help you “dominate and unleash the animal inside you to live a life of health, wealth and freedom”.
- Scott Adams, the creator of Dilbert, is more than just a cartoonist. He is an expert in persuasion and has a great book “How to Fail at Almost Everything and Still Win Big: Kind of the Story of My Life”. It’s funny, and it gives great examples of Failing to Win, a must have mindset for men.
