My Manosphere reading from this fine Saturday morning:
Free Northerner updates us on how the purpose of his blog is going. Something I was actually wondering about. One of the first things I do when I find a blog I like is go and read the first few posts. I find it extremely interesting to see the evolution of how people write and what they write about over time. Especially in the setting of blogs as they are usually updated often, so the change is often gradual, so as you’re reading it you may not notice, but go a couple months back and they can seem like a totally different person.
Leap of a Beta finds himself possibly in some deep shit. An example of how being male at the wrong place and wrong time can really fuck you. What’s worse, in these situations there really isn’t a clear path forward, despite being innocent, the wrong step might have deep consequences.
Dannyfrom504 suggests having a drink and smoke. The explicit advice he writes about is good on its own, but I interpret it as advice to do something masculine in an unapologetic manner.
Dalrock notes the feminising of the NFL. While I have nothing against breast cancer activism or its month of awareness, the NFL has show signs of pussification. Over protection of players when the protective technology is the best it has ever been is getting a bit ludicrous. I understand the level of athleticism is also the highest it has ever been, creating the possibility for a greater amount of injuries, but it goes too far. Now we even have supposedly bad ass bull dog defensive players bitching about getting hit and how valuable their knees are? Oh and Hines Ward is a bitch and always was when he played.
Holy fuck. I think I had heard at some point about schools referring teens to clinics where they could get birth control without being required to inform parents, but this shit’s crazy. Gives me chills as a parent who has produced female offspring. Birth control is crazy enough, but the morning after pill is a free pass to fuck whoever whenever they want with only a walk of shame to the nurse’s office as a consequence.
I don’t know how credible the study itself is, but its an interesting theory. Makes sense in many ways. I think in a lot of ways authority is a kind of freedom. Your choices have more weight, but they’re your choices. Also think about it in the context of the successfully self employed; they have achieved authority over both aspects of their life. The one frees the other.
I don’t honestly know what he’s been up to since I used to watch him on PBS, but I love the strong passionate stance he takes here on an issue he cares about. It’s extremely common for public figures to take the easy way and travel a middle road that you know is not how they really feel.
The nutritional profile of school lunches are shit because of the utter fucking disgrace that is the food pyramid, and other government pushed donkey shit. Awareness is a good start, and the importance of protein can’t be stressed enough.
