It’s the start of the New Year again! That means that it’s time for me to speculate on what might happen in 2017. I was more than a little surprised at how accurate I was for 2015. As I’m writing this, I have no idea how well I did for 2016.
So before I begin for 2017 let’s do a review on how well (or poorly) I did for 2016 this was the blog in question
1. A Politicizing of the gender issue
I have to admit this one was an absolute no-brainer. After all, it was an election year. By July Feminism was openly hemorrhaging badly. Had this election not come along Feminism would likely be a severely wounded and bleeding entity. Not that it wasn’t a terrible year for Feminism anyway
This article doesn’t include Gregory Alan Elliot winning his trial. The Idiotic doubling down by Feminists when Jian Ghomeshi was found innocent. Or how bad Feminists looked when they made blatant attempts to prevent the screening of Cassie Jaye’s documentary on the Men’s Right Movement called Take The Red Pill
Suffice to say I’m gonna count this one as DING!
2. Open calls for arrests and harassment of MRA/MGTOW/Red Pill
I hadn’t even finished the blog when there was an open call for the arrest of Milos Yiannapoulos on a morning talk show
Oddly enough when I wrote this I was thinking it was going to be one of the groups mentioned above, man, was I ever in for a surprise. While it did happen anyway via the open call to disrupt an event that Roosh V was going to put on.
Most of the violence came out either against Milos Yiannapoulos Dangerous Faggot Tour or During Trump Rallies. Men’s Rights and Red Pill ended up fading into the background during the fall
This video doesn’t include Trigglypuff or what happened at DePaul or UC Irvine.
Then we got what happened at Donald Trump political rallies
Gonna give myself a tentative ding on this one. It did happen but not to the people I thought it was going to.
3. Gregory Alan Elliot not guilty
HUGE ding on this one, again not a surprise here. I also have aired an opinion that a group within Twitter may in all likelihood were going to try and use a guilty verdict to come down hard on people like us. What they ended up doing is burning themselves out early with little to no real impact
4. An ever increasing number of attacks by feminists on the GMM (Greater Men’s Movement)
They came out breathing fire at the start of 2016, especially on Twitter. I’m going to bring up a quote from that blog I wrote there
I see feminists becoming very quiet after that. After all, this was their only remaining shot at taking back the initiative they lost back in 2013. When they do come out of the castle again, it’ll get a whole lot nastier. Even more, than it is at the moment.
All that effort and all they managed to do were shut down a couple of pages on Facebook, Halt an Event done by Roosh V and stop a few screenings of Cassie Jaye’s movie. A very pitiful payout for what may have been an outright conspiracy.
Other than the harassment of Cassie Jaye’s movie after July it got pretty quiet it happened enough though that once again DING!
5. Feminism drops the ball on an issue, possibly even more than once
They didn’t even get out of the first day without dropping the ball huge! Look no further than Cologne on New Years Day!
In fact, there were so many of them that when Age of Shitlords did their article, even they had to omit some things
What the hell can I say here? DING!
6. The Beast that is MGTOW starts to emerge in full force.
Became official sometime in the late summer or early fall when MGTOW.com first surpassed A Voice for Men and then blew past We Hunted the Mammoth just a few weeks later.
Yes folks MGTOW is here and is likely here for good unless the rules around a few things change drastically, specifically around marriage.
DING! Six for Six so far!
7. Women start taking the Red Pill!
This one was little bit riskier there are already some women that have swallowed the Red Pill, take this woman for instance
But it wasn’t until September that I started noticing a trend. It started one night at work when I listened to a video from Story Time With Doge
I went in and did some digging on YouTube what I found was an eye opener! I looked up “Not a Feminist” or “I’m an Anti-Feminist” this is what I came up with
45 of the 53 videos on this list are in the last two years. THIRTY SEVEN of them are in 2016. If that’s not solid proof that Feminists are losing their ability to dictate what women say then nothing else will
I will be doing a blog and/or a video on this topic soon because it deserves it’s own mention all by itself.
8. Threats and Arrests of Men’s Activists
I covered this in number 2, So I may have repeated myself this one though was aimed directly at MRA’s. The activity shifted over to the Dangerous Faggot Tour and Donald Trump and not MRA’s. Therefore I have to give this guess a good solid BUMP!
Roosh V doesn’t count because he’s not an MRA
Damn can’t win them all now, can I?
9. Convention in London this June MUST happen!
It did happen, and it went off with just one hitch the AVFM page on Facebook was taken down.
Other than this one small hitch ICMI 16 went off quietly without so much as a whimper from any Feminist. Why this happened, and why it went down so quietly as opposed to what happened in Michigan in 2014 can be speculated on somewhere else.
Gonna give myself a solid DING on this one!
10. Another Men’s Rights Group Emerges.
Didn’t happen! What did happen though was MGTOW got a whole lot bigger than it was a year ago. There was also a slow and gradual turning away from Feminism and Regressives in General as things like the Dangerous Faggot Tour and The Donald Trump presidential campaign diverted the attention away from the MRM.
11. Other media sites start becoming sympathetic to men’s issues.
Not as much I thought! When Cassie Jaye’s movie came out, and the censorship bandwagon started up the publicity became better. Otherwise, I didn’t see much change at all. What I did see was an increase in the rhetoric and lying from the other side.
Very tentatively gonna give myself a ding here and a bow of the head to Cassie Jaye
12. Dissention inside feminism.
I didn’t personally see anything. A quick google search turned up nothing as well. I suspect that this might’ve happened because of the need for Feminists to unite against Donald Trump. They were not nearly so focused on the Manosphere this year.
BONK! I underestimated the amount of bile and desperation within Feminism and The Regressive crowd in general.
13. Casualties inside the GMM
I didn’t see anyone walk away and quit! So casualties didn’t happen. Some people shifted their focus or expanded their activities to fighting regressives as opposed to simply staying inside the Manosphere. I have become much more vocal about being MGTOW.
Bonk here! But this is because of a shift in priorities inside society not because anyone got tired and quit.
14. Divorce, Child Custody, and Alimony issue grind slowly back in men’s favor
January 2nd is far too early to see any stats on 2016 anywhere. From what I saw though the trend does appear to be grinding it’s way to a more balanced system. Grind being the main word here because them wheels are moving damn slow.
10 of 14 were right in one form or another! Not bad when you consider that I’m in no way a psychic, mathematician, remote viewer or any way a practitioner of any kind of future prediction methods, be they scientific or esoteric.
I’m clearly guilty of underestimating Donald Trump not so much because I didn’t think he would win because I always thought that it was possible. What I didn’t see was the profound cultural impact his campaign and election, would have here in North America. In fact, last night while I was writing this I had to listen to one future predictor rant on against Donald Trump constantly as opposed to giving predictions.
2016 was indeed ‘Game the Fuck On’ so to speak. I see what happened with the 2016 Presidential Election especially after Donald Trump won as acts of Desperation. Especially the riots in various places after he won. Those riots were in my opinion about as ‘spontaneous’ as the sun rising in the morning.
On a personal level 2016 was the most difficult and trying year I’ve had as an adult apparantly I wasn’t the only one who had this happen to them though. What will happen in 2017? Well that’s another blog for later this week, so keep watching
