What do you get of the manosphere?

Interesting things are happening around the manosphere

Mojo has declared he is closing his blog. He feels he has lost his zest; outgrown the persona of Mojo; outgrown the passion that drove him into blogging. This seems to be a natural progression within the manosphere; or rather a natural progression that predates the manosphere.

The best manosphere blogs are those wrote entirely for the author; for the author to sort out his thoughts – teaching others shows we truly understand what we have learned. Mojo warns that without action we cannot truly claim to have achieved anything. We understand, and yet, we do not understand. Welcome to the world of keyboard jockeying.

A long time ago I was a clueless omega and I needed help. I found a now defunct (I hope) internet forum. Amongst the incessant shit I found pearls of wisdom; I found game for the first time. It changed my life. I spent a lot of time writing long winded posts and arguing with posters I didn’t know, or want know, over topics I didn’t really care about. I was going through the hardest transition of my life, unlearning and relearning so many things. So much red pill truth that the only way I could cope was to write post after post, essay after essay. I became a guide to newbies. At the same time I started putting into practice what I preached. Eventually I moved on from that forum and to other things.

The first time I hit rock bottom looked that forum back up. The same people stuck in the same ruts. Endless KJing, endless debate and no one had changed. Thankfully I found Roissy. I spent time in his comments arguing over trivialities and trying to call others out for their betatude. I didn’t comment much and I left after a while; real life beckoned.

The second time I hit rock bottom I returned to Roissy for a refresher of game and some inspiration. His comment thread was now a monstrosity of KJing and paper alphas trying to one up each other. Luckily the manosphere was in its prime; its scope encompassing everything a man needed to improve himself and reach new heights. I rarely commented much. I knew most of it already, I just wanted reminding.

I have been in and out of the manosphere since that time and I see something which disgusts me, a rise of KJ alphas arguing endlessly over theory. Hiding out online, trying to perfect technique with years of their life passing, the world changing, they remaining static. A week of real life practice is worth more than a year of theory.

Game is learned in the field just as muscle building is learned in the gym and so it is with all aspects of self improvement.

A year from now will you still be reading, looking for the perfect approach, or blogging away about bitches and whores are ruining the world or will you be taking action…the question is, whether you are a lurker, commenter or blogger, what do you get out of the manosphere?

Tomorrow I will say what I get out of it.

MGTOW v MRA V Game V Christianospherists v Acronymists…

SFTU with all the labelling. Research has concluded that internet usage breeds aspergy anal retentiveness. Stop trying to categorise, label and pigeonhole everything. That said, this is how I see it all:

MGTOW: Those who are withdrawing from society because they know it’s a bad deal. Some of them are withdrawing from bothering with women too. Those who not are also gamers.

Game: Its game, not game theory (that’s math). Game (capital G) is Roosh et al and it is a lifestyle of chasing pussy. It was pioneered by Ross Jeffries, later Mystery and so on. It looks to be on the decline.

game (little g) is just men learning the truth about women (or as much truth as is necessary, the whole truth of women would drive any man to suicide) and treating women accordingly. It is a tool, not a lifestyle. You can be (insert x here) and game women just as you can be (insert x here) and run marathons without building your entire life and identity around it.

MRA: Men who have been screwed over by society and know women have it better. Women have always had it better and always will. That’s life.

MRAs may have genuine grievances and legitimate and just causes, but frankly, no one gives a damn. Life is not fair. Part of life is that humans are an animal and have animal instincts. In many species weak males stir deep revulsion in females, contempt in formerly weak males and barely a glimmer of sympathy among other weak males, and humans are one of those species.

Women have feminism because they bitch and moan and whine and other women side with them and most mediocre males bend over and take whatever women want them to take for the mere whiff of potential pussy.

Men are expected to be strong, stoic and to get shit done and not whinge about it. Sorry MRAs (and I truly mean this), no matter how righteous your causes, on a visceral level you are doomed to failure.

Alt Right: Basically right wingers (WTF does that even mean in contemporary context?) who distance themselves from mainstream right wingers (who are just reactionaries to leftist nonsense). An incoherent political stance that sometimes wants more government intervention to solve our problems and sometimes less. Indeed, alt right may be best characterized as a reactionary movement to a reactionary movement.

Libertarians: Misnomer. Often nothing more than corporate shills, especially those who support the Libertarian party.

Christian/Orthosphere: Christians who have discovered how PC the Church is. Caught between the truth og the manosphere and whatever the Church says.

The manosphere: The great resurgence of philosophic and modern thought…or rather a loose connection of blogs that link incestuously to each other with no clear boundaries that covers everything from personal development to economic forecasting and includes all the above mentioned categories.

Is there anyone I forget? Is there someone I didn’t piss off? I can remember back before Ferd, when Roissy was just Roissy in DC, before there was a manosphere, which is why I say to stop bickering and take what you need, don’t try to conform to any label and get on with living your life. Arguing over who is in what clique is for high school girls.

N.B. This was wrote as a commentary to Roosh calling out MRAs and the ensuing storm. I forgot I had written this and found it lying on my computer demanding to be posted before it becomes ancient history.
