Further thoughts on my prior post: Women Have Value!

Lori, responding to my “Women Have Value!” post, said:

“It seems that your sexism and inclination towards patriarchy was present in you even before you consciously adopted your patriarchal philosophy. This is clear from the fact that it was a revelation to you in your late teens that women have value and that you only recognized our value in response to your romantic attraction to one of us. This solipsism is mind boggling even for a teenager. And yet even now you seem to view our value only in very narrow terms that you define. You do not love women as we are. You only love an ideal of what you think we are or what you think we should be. This controlling mindset is not love.”

Idealism leads to Patriarchy and Selfishness leads to Feminism

Lori recently said in a comment at this website:

“Feminism is not at all predicated on the notion that men are bad. It is predicated on that notion that power by men over women is bad. Feminists do not want to be subject to good men any more than we want to be subject to bad men – just as you do not wish to be subject to a woman, no matter how wise and good she may be.”

The Meaning of Candace Owens Making Her Husband a Sandwich

I am in favor of patriarchy and I am in favor of traditional gender roles, I am in favor of the 1950s family model of the wife staying at home with the kids while the man goes off to work to make the money.

Candace Owens made an interesting tweet on March 16, 2021 where she stated:

“Making my husband a sandwich is not submissive. Cooking for your family is not submissive. Yes, a good woman should take care of her family. And yes, a good man does the same.”

My Reflections on Rush Limbaugh

I first listened to Rush Limbaugh in 1992 or 1993 I would say.  There was some hype and excitement about a new rising star and personality, a controversial figure, on the radio, and I intentionally sought him out to see what all the fuss was about, to see what I thought about him.  I had a general understanding of Democrats and Republicans at that time; Democrats were for the poor and Republicans were for the rich.  Democrats represented the interests of the less fortunate and Republicans represented the interests of the more fortunate; that was the basic way that I saw things.

The Disaster of Donald Trump

Donald Trump is finally out of office after vigorously contesting the 2020 Presidential Election that gave Joe Biden 306 electoral votes to Donald Trump’s 232 electoral votes; coincidentally the exact same margin of victory that Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton by in 2016.  Trump lost the election in 2020 based on losing Georgia (by 0.24%), Arizona (by 0.31%), and Wisconsin (by 0.63%).  In 2016 Trump won the election against Hillary Clinton by winning Michigan (by 0.23%), Pennsylvania (by 0.72%), and Wisconsin (by 0.77%).  In the popular vote Hillary Clinton beat Donald Trump in 2016 by 48.2% to 46.1% (in the United States presidential elections are decided by the Electoral College, not the popular vote); in 2020 Joe Biden beat Donald Trump 51.3% to 46.9% in the popular vote.

What Women are Entitled To

Anthony Dream Johnson tweeted this out on December 20, 2020:

“We must abolish divorce rape in America.

Women are entitled to NOTHING”

It is quite the declaration, that women are entitled to “NOTHING”; NOTHING being in all caps in Anthony Johnson’s original tweet; his emphasis, not mine.  Also “women are entitled to NOTHING” is presented as a stand alone line, a complete sentence in its own right, the logic seems to be, women are entitled to nothing, therefore divorce rape must be abolished, divorce rape being the result of people wrongly thinking that women have some kind of entitlement to support and provisioning or a share of the assets from the man after a divorce.

Donald Trump’s Loss and the Battle Against Wokeness

Donald Trump lost the 2020 presidential election to Joe Biden; 306 electoral votes for Biden and 232 electoral votes for Trump; it will be Joe Biden as President and Kamala Harris as Vice-President starting January 20, 2021.  In the Senate Republicans hold 50 seats and Democrats hold 48 seats with 2 run-off elections scheduled for January 5, 2021 in Georgia that will ultimately determine which party controls the Senate; the Democrats have to win both run-off elections in order to gain the majority in the Senate with Kamala Harris as the tie-breaking vote in favor of the Democrats.  In the House the Democrats hold 222 seats and the Republicans hold 206 seats with 7 seats yet to be decided; a majority being 218 seats so Democrats hold the majority in the House.

She’s Not Yours, It’s Just Your Turn

There has been some recent discussion in the manosphere regarding the idiom “She’s not yours, it’s just your turn.”  Can a woman ever really be “yours” in the sense of ownership or possession?  It would seem this idiom is connected to the idea of commitment, that no commitment with a woman is ever solid and so therefore in any relationship with a woman it is “just your turn” but oddly enough when I see other manospherians talk about this “wisdom” discussion about commitment or the meaning of commitment or the trustworthiness of commitment doesn’t really come up.  It is as if you want a woman to be “yours” without making a commitment to her first and then are disappointed that alas it is only “your turn.”

The Disappearing Deaths from Coronavirus

Coronavirus isn’t a new epidemic anymore, it has been around for 6 plus months in the United States, I would say March 1, 2020 is when the epidemic “got started” in terms of the public reaction to it. So where are we now?

The first major cluster of deaths in the United States happened at the Life Care Center of Kirkland; a nursing home in Kirkland, Washington. Kirkland has a population 93,010 (2019 estimate from Wikipedia) and Kirkland has had a total number of 62 deaths from the coronavirus as of September 24, 2020. That is 1 death per 1,500 residents or 667 deaths per million population. The interesting thing is that the last death seen in Kirkland from coronavirus was on August 21, 2020; it has been more than a month since Kirkland has seen even a single coronavirus death. Herd immunity? Does Kirkland already have herd immunity against the coronavirus? Is that why Kirkland has so few deaths in recent months? Continue reading

The 100 Year Anniversary of Women’s Right to Vote

In traditional societies men are the guardians of women; men being the guardians of women being pretty much universal say 200 years ago and prior. Men being the “guardian” of women means men take care of women, men protect women, men provide for women materially or financially, and men control women, are dominant over women, tell women what to do, set the terms and define what the relationship of the woman to the man is. This guardianship over women was pretty much universal among traditional cultures though there were different versions in different places; the particular version of guardianship that was practiced in England and later in early America was called Coverture, the married woman being under the “cover”, the protective cover or shielding, of her husband. You can date the particular form of guardianship called Coverture as starting in 1188 with the Tractatus of Glanvill in England and ending in England in 1870 with the Married Women’s Property Act of 1870. The early United States, being founded as an English colony originally, also had Coverture as its form of guardianship over women; Coverture in the United States being ended by state level Married Women Property Acts mostly from 1839 to 1865.
