There is an assault on masculinity in this country and we are paying the price for it. It is most evident in how fathers are depicted on family sitcoms and in commercials. Dad is a buffoon and Mom is practically his mother. We are a media-driven country, for better or for worse. And that same media depicts men, more and more, as foolish and unnecessary, in one-hour dramas and motion pictures.
Whether its a conspiracy or simply those who control media chasing after the all mighty dollar, the outcome is still the same. Consistently putting out content, which seeks to attack and neutralize male power, makes the tightly controlled media an accessory to destroying the natural balance, the Yin and the Yang, that has kept human civilization alive and evolving for well over 100,000 years.
These targeted media attacks are fueled by a decades long agenda of male scapegoating, in the universities. We now have several generations of college graduates who are inclined to think that men are responsible for all of the world’s problems, in the form of what they call “the Patriarchy”.
When I was a Liberal, prior to taking a rigorous self-inventory, I bought into all of this. I was born into this. I was ashamed to be an American, ashamed to be white and ashamed to be a male. Today, with the benefit of retrospect, it is clear me to that an expedient way to control the masses is to instill self-doubt. And I am no longer drinking the Kool Aid.
Originally Feminism was essentially the idea that women were equal to men and deserving of the same rights. And I have no problem with that idea – what some people might call “First Wave Feminism”. In fact I support it.
But starting around the time I was born, in 1967, so-called Feminism has come to mean something else. It is part of a larger agenda that promotes the absolute hatred of European-Americans. And this is often clothed in an animosity toward white males in particular. And one of the net results of this toxic way of thinking is that our people are taught to cozy up to our enemies.
For instance, tens of millions of Americans actually believe in the myth of “Islamophobia” – even though the beliefs of main-stream Islam fly in the face of so-called Liberal values. We are witnessing the results of wide-spread brainwashing in this country. Our people are losing the ability to think critically and to exercise common sense.
Acceptance in today’s version of Feminism immediately enrolls you in several other causes. And embedded in these causes is the DNA of an ideology which, if it isn’t stopped, will lead to the destruction of American values and with it the very survival of America itself. And if America continues to grow weak, the free world will cease to remain free.
I am personally of the belief that if a person is homosexual it is none of my business. I even question whether the government has a right to tell two consenting adults who they can marry. Whether or not gay marriage will, in the future, do some kind of harm to American society is something I simply do not know. But I do know this – if a man puts on a dress and demands that I call him a woman, this is something I refuse to go along with.
Gay rights morphed into something called Lesbian and Gay rights. This then became called LBGT. The “T” stands for those who are Transgendered. On University campuses and even high schools and now some middle schools, this cause has expanded to be called LBGTIA. The “A” stands for “allies”. And to the radicals who are quickly becoming mainstream, if you are not an ally then you are an enemy. So, not surprisingly, many young people now identify as part of the LGBTIA movement.
That movement is joined at the hip with today’s hostile version of Feminism. And if that wasn’t disconcerting enough, many Universities and other institutions are now encouraging young people to decide which gender they want to identify as. And if the rest of us don’t go along with this lunacy, we are deemed to be “Homophobic”.
The condition of feeling one’s emotional and psychological identity as male or female, to be the opposite of one’s biological sex, is called “Gender Dysphoria”. And this type of extreme delusion is clearly a mental illness.
If you are a man, wearing a dress and calling yourself a woman, what I think about it is none of your business. After all, I do not hate you. I do not wish you harm. I do not mock you. I do not want to see you suffer or be treated with any less dignity than anyone else. But I’m not going to go along with your delusion, your fantasy, that you are a woman. By today’s Liberal standards, this would make me a bigot and a homophobe.
Before I entered my teenage years I was a member of the Boy Scouts. This was an important experience for me and for other young boys. One of the reasons this experience was so critical is that many of us did not have fathers, or in my case, I had a father at home, but he was practically invisible due to his addiction to alcohol. For other boys, our father’s had simply checked out. While in the Boy Scouts we learned how to be a male among males. We learned honor and accountability. We went out into the woods, carrying everything we needed to survive on our backs. The older men, who were our Scout Leaders, were essentially initiating us into manhood.
This tradition, in one form or another, has survived through many generations, over many thousands of years. When women are strong and men are strong, each in their own way, the society is strong. And the Boy Scouts are one of the few remaining remnants of this tradition that has not completely died out – until recently.
The Boy Scouts of America have just announced that, after facing an impossible number of lawsuits and other disputes, they have to now accept into their program any child who decides that they want to identify as male or female, regardless of their natural biological gender. I don’t think I have to explain to you what a tremendous blow this is to the tradition of teaching boys to become men.
To some, the very notion of a bunch of males dressing up in uniforms, earning badges for learning a skill such as first aid and going out into nature to hike and fish and learn morals and values – this is simply a joke. It almost sounds like the set up for a Sarah Silverman stand up comedy routine, or Amy Schumer or fill in the blank.
The more people who can be convinced they have a place on the victim pyramid, the stronger the Left becomes. And history has shown us, time and time again, what happens when the Left gains enough strength. The body count is unimaginable.
Gender is the most basic component of identity. And when we forget who we are everything falls apart. Men and women are PROFOUNDLY DIFFERENT and this is a beautiful thing. But there are some very sick people among us, growing in numbers, who seek to destroy beauty and replace is with dysfunction, delusion and eventually our demise. And we simply cannot stand by passively and allow this to happen.
The Boy Scouts of America said on Monday the group would begin accepting transgender boys, bucking its more than a century-old practice of using the gender stated on a birth certificate to determine eligibility.
“Starting today, we will accept and register youth in the Cub and Boy Scout programs based on the gender identity indicated on the application,” Boy Scouts of America communications director Effie Delimarkos said in an emailed statement.
Delimarkos cited shifting definitions of gender under state laws, which can “vary widely from state to state,” in explaining the change.
She said that while the organization offers programs for all youths, its Cub and Boy Scout programs are specifically for boys. The change will allow children to apply even if male is not listed on their birth certificate.
Advocacy group Scouts for Equality applauded the move: “This is another historic day for the Boy Scouts of America. The decision to allow transgender boys to participate in the Cub Scouts and the Boy Scouts is an important step forward for this American institution.”
In 2013, the Boy Scouts voted to lift a ban on openly gay scouts that had been in place throughout the organization’s history after gay rights advocates gathered petitions with more than 1.8 million signatures in support of ending the ban.
Support also came from some of the biggest American churches, including the Mormons and the Methodists, two of the largest scouting sponsors in the United States.
Two years later, the organization lifted its blanket ban on gay adult leaders after its president, former U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates, called the ban “unsustainable” in the face of numerous lawsuits challenging the policy on grounds of discrimination.
The Boy Scouts of America, whose stated mission is to prepare youth for life and leadership, has nearly 2.3 million members between the ages of 7 and 21 and roughly 960,000 volunteers in local councils throughout the country, according to its website.
