Each year in the manosphere is affected by the one that came before it! The enormous pushback by regressives in particular feminists was a reaction to the thrashing that Feminism and Regressives took in 2016
It wasn’t all that unexpected that there was going to be pushback in 2017. It started out with the Trump Protest and the open and blatant announcement by Ashley Judd
We all suspected what was coming and it did. One friend of mine mid-year suggested that 2017 was like The Empire Strikes Back. Now he said that as a comparison only to have someone wave a sign proclaiming Feminism Strikes Back in December of 2017
Yeah, your eyes ain’t fooling you. This woman likened feminism to the Evil Empire and did so unabashedly.
Now I’m not going to get into a huge review of 2017 here that’s for another blog post which will also likely be up before the end of the year. Probably more than at any time since I got involved in the Manosphere is a year being so dictated by events that came before it. Each year generally has it’s stand-alone topics. The surprising emergence of Donald Trump and Brexit in 2016 for instance. 2018 though appears to be following a path that’s already been laid out for it. And that’s probably where I should start out with
My Guesses for 2018
As usual, no horoscopes, tarot cards, charts, graphs, crystal balls or any other form of divination used here. Just one guy looking at what’s going on and proceeding down the time tunnel and taking a somewhat informed guess as to what will happen. Of course, this means I’ll be wrong about some of these, but damn I like writing this article at the end of the year.
1. 2018 The Culture War Gets Hot
2017 saw the Battle of Berkely, The Million Woman March, The Adpocalypse, Vidcon, #metoo, etc. Starting in late November 2017 we began to see #metoo begin to fray around the edges as feminists like Emily Lindin openly announced that they didn’t care about innocent men.
We also saw women openly call out people like Emily Lindin publicly for the first time. These women weren’t Honey Badgers either. Yes, folks, a major FEMALE celebrity spoke out openly against feminism
How do you want me to say this? Despite all of the alleged ‘gains’ made by feminists in 2017 they haven’t actually silenced or taken anyone out. They did manage to wound Milos Yiannopoulos but other than that nobody on our side of the fence got taken down. Seattle for Truth is headed for jail but that isn’t because of Feminist activism and Ethan Ralph is currently in prison but will be out early in 2018. Feminist males though were tossed under the bus in droves and from what I’ve been able to digest. Even men that were on the sidelines when it comes to this are now acutely aware that any woman from any time can come back with an allegation and ruin everything. If you think that won’t bring in more people to the manosphere then you’re deluded. So we’re stronger, so are they but they had to cannibalize themselves to do it.
Bottom line here is that now The Manosphere itself is growing and is now also aware and getting organized to hit back.
2. Silent Winter
Here’s the irony of all that wrote above. Feminists/SJW’s think they did well this year. I’m going to lay good odds that unlike the two or three previous years this year they’ll take a breath or two before coming out. In fact, it wouldn’t surprise me that they’re relatively quiet until it’s time to start gearing up for the 2018 Mid-Terms in the US or…
3. Hey, you bastards I’m still here!
At some point in 2018, it’s going to dawn on Regressives, specifically Feminists that all those men they supposedly took out of the picture in 2017 weren’t the ones that counted. They’ll figure out that we’re still here and very much in the fight. When this does happen they’ll also realize that something else is also happening
4. #Metoo Starts to slow down and backfire
This started out well for feminists. This was the event that they had been waiting for to come out screaming and yelling as loudly as they can. Ironically enough I thought it was going to be Bill Cosby, not Harvey Weinstein that would be the cause of it. Not only that they didn’t even wait for any kind of legal verdict, they simply tried him via the media
It should be noted that Bill Cosby’s new trial is currently slated for April this year
Bill Cosby’s Retrial For 2004 Rape Gets Official April 2018 Start Date – Update
This though isn’t the main problem Jeremy Piven was accused and passed a lie detector test.
We already have feminists on the record that they don’t care about false accusations. These false accusations will start to pile up. Now in 2017 the media could pony up and cover up these shortcomings.
The mainstream media will ignore false accusations, the alternative media though won’t. This takes me to my next guess.
5. The Mainstream Media takes a serious run at the Alternate Media
Let’s not kid ourselves here the mainstream media is clearly starting to falter. In 2017 there was a long series of situations where the mainstream (cathedral) media dropped the ball with facts or in some cases outright lied.
This is likely going to continue, stories will get more desperate and less fact-based as ratings continue to go down and credibility continues to drop. You may even see a 2015/16 Feminist style bleeding out as one network then another constantly puts its foot in its mouth. While the alternative/internet media will continue to grow. With US midterms coming up later in the year, these organizations will be left with very little choice but to outright smear alternative media.
6. Alternative media starts to surge
This really isn’t shouldn’t be all that big of a surprise to anyone who reads this. This group is already doing well and will get even better as the year progresses. In fact, all that’ll really happen when mainstream media starts coming after them is that they’ll simply acquire more viewership. This tends to happen when you’re by and large reporting the truth as opposed to being a mouthpiece for the corrupt establishment. The Alternative media won’t be the only group that gets stronger and larger as the year progresses
7. All the Groups in the “Manosphere” Get Larger
Be they MRA, PUA, MGTOW, Red Pill, Anti Feminists, Anti SJW’s etc all of them should grow by leaps and bounds in 2018. You may have missed this but A Voice For Men has recently gone back to the numbers they had at the end of 2015. The MRM is far from dead no matter how many people in MGTOW say it is.
That’s not to say that MGTOW and MRA’s are in a fight with each other. There’s a substantial amount of overlap between the two. Depending on the man and in some cases the woman, the group that most fits their preference will be the one they sign on with. It’s when these groups start getting larger than some of the so-called established sites for men that people will really start noticing.
8. MGTOW faces serious attacks
Up until now, MGTOW has been for the most part considered a fringe group. This is going to change as 2018 progresses. There are a number of reasons why MGTOW is arguably the most disliked faction inside the manosphere. I did a whole YouTube video as to why.
You have to keep in mind that this isn’t just going to be MGTOW that’ll be taking the heat. There’s going to be desperate attempts to tie all of these groups to less liked more radical factions fighting against the establishment.
Although I’m not a huge fan of the Red Pill subreddit they had a response to the CNN piece
Expect a lot more of this.
9. Gearing up for Mid-Terms
All of these attacks you’re going to see? There’s a reason for them, that reason should be as obvious as the nose on your face. 2018 is a Mid-Term year, Democrats and Anti Trumpers everywhere want to focus on getting a majority in the house and/or The Senate. They won’t make any bones about why either they want to impeach Trump. Now at this point, it’s hard for me to guess which way these elections will go. No matter which way they go there’s a serious possibility that they’ll be in an unwinnable position. You see even if they do succeed in capturing the house it’ll still require time to get an impeachment going. Donald Trump though isn’t the only player on the board. The Regressives by the fall of 2018 may not have the cultural capital left to take on both Trump and the ‘Deplorables’ at the same time.
If they do get control of the House then most of their energy will be put into his impeachment. Which won’t succeed if they fail assassination isn’t out of the question as the situation with the regressives continues to deteriorate in 2018.
10. Culture war gets hotter
Magic The Gathering, Comic Books, Hollywood, MetalGate even some of the lesser-known artistic groups either have or will reach tipping points in regards to Cultural Marxists telling them how to conduct themselves. More of these groups are going to organize and start fighting back as 2018 rolls on.
11. Hollywood starts to feel the heat
This sexual misconduct investigation will likely morph into something closer to the 50’s style of McCarthyism that saw performers and creators career ruined. The level of originality and creativity is already at an all-time low in Hollywood will continue to go down. But not before there’s a brief and hopeful soft bounce upwards as more female directors will get their chance later on in 2018.
What you’re likely to see is more Feminist style grandstanding and the new powers in Hollywood learn nothing from what happened to the Video Game, Comic Book, Spec Fiction and MTG power players have or will find out. That it’s not a very good idea to insult or lecture your potential audience
Ironic that it was just 30 years ago that we were LOLing at the Russians and Eastern Bloc’s lack of creativity and dullness. But if you look at some of the fashion shows you’ve seen recently you may have noticed a trend.
Here’s the frightening part they’re taking themselves very seriously just like in The Wendy’s commercial I posted up earlier.
12. At least one of the Hollywood Studios gets in financial trouble
You really need to take a look at some of the movies coming out. Some of them are pretty interesting. There’s one though that stinks to high heaven of flop months before it even comes out
This movie has all those characters that Diversity and Comics and Capn Cummings have been warning about for the past few months. Instead of simply getting the message after what 5-6 Captain Marvel restarts and how immensely unpopular other characters like Squirrel Girl and America Chavez are, instead, they’re doing this. This is what it says in the article about this movie
“Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors will star Spider-Gwen who will now go by Ghost-Spider as she teams up with Quake, America Chavez, Squirrel Girl, Captain Marvel, Inferno, Ms. Marvel, Patriot, and Glory to take on the villainous Kree Accuser Hala.
The script is being written by Mairghread Scott and will feature some top voice talent including Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. veterans Chloe Bennet and Ming-Na Wen. It will also star Dove Cameron, Tyler Posey, BooBoo Stewart, Kathreen Khavari, Milana Vayntrub, Cierra Ramirez, Kamil McFadden, Skai JacksFron, and Kim Raver.
The digital film is set to launch sometime in 2018.”
Yep, I can hear the SJW’s screaming sexism and not learning a thing about Ghostbusters and likely Oceans 8. You’ll see them do all sorts of intelligent things, like insult and berate the regular moviegoers, virtue signal the living fuck out this. And of course, when it falls down like a lead balloon they’ll blame everyone but themselves for it.
In short, one of the studios will get bought out and there may well be more than just one. This will have an interesting bleed over effect.
13. Comicgate will heat up and the SJW’s will wilt under the heat
This probably won’t surface until near the end of the year. Truth has a way of winning out in the end anyway. But if the right studio, or in this case the wrong studio starts to go under the new owners are going to likely demand a profit of some kind for their investment. This will mean that crappy stories and characters being put out by Marvel will have to stop because shitty comics don’t sell, and new investors are not going to be happy with sales by Marvel at all.
So in effect, Comicgate will expire the same way Gamergate did. The regressives will shoot themselves in the foot. It started to unwind for the SJW’s in Gamergate when Anita Sarkeesian did her Nightline appearance.
One curious effect of her Nightline appearance is that it exposed how few people supported her. It’s also very likely in the case of Comicgate that the power of SJW’s in comics is because nobody knows exactly how many people are SJW’s and how many are not. I posted up a YouTube video called The Spaces In Between covering this
This though will not be the only place where things start to go south for the regressives.
14. Title IX legislation and the meltdown on campuses
We saw what happened at Missouri and Evergreen State
There will be more events like in 2018, in fact, I’m guessing many more. It reached the point in 2017 where on professor lost her job because of her racist views.
Ironically she got fired from a noted LIBERAL and BLACK UNIVERSITY! I mean you have to be pretty damn bad to have that happen to you. Cracks are going to start showing up everywhere in academia this year and it’ll be beyond the ability of the Mainstream media to put out all the fires or even ignore them as their credibility takes hit after hit this year.
This spring will also be the first group graduating that had Donald Trump as their president for a full year. There should at the very least be active discussion of curtailing and maybe even eliminating Title IX altogether
Let me make this clear despite all the bleating you’ll see from Soy Boys and Feminists on this issue. I was recently told that there are currently over 200 Title IX lawsuits pending against various academic institutions in the United States. If even just a small percentage of those lawsuits is successful, and the law of averages suggests that some of them will be. The need for Academia to reform Title IX simply to protect themselves from potential lawsuits will be enough to send it down the tubes.
Betsy DeVos is actually saving modern academia by doing what she’s doing. It’s a shame that Regressives can’t see that their goose is literally cooked on this, and it’s really only a matter of time before it happened anyway.
This though may not be the biggest hit academia takes this year, or even the biggest hit regressives take all year.
15. Stage Four event happens!
There are Eight stages of a Movement
Now whether you like Bill Moyers politics or not isn’t relevant here. We’ve been sitting on stage 3 now for close to Five years since Donglegate.
Late in the year especially if the Democrats are unable to win the house and thus the Regressives have to stare into an ever-widening abyss where their political and cultural capital has been depleted. This is when someone will get desperate. This desperation will likely be the event that triggers Stage 4. It’ll likely be something very small on a campus, maybe in a blue state. It may not even happen in the US it may happen out of the country. The other shoe will drop the one that Feminists have been afraid would drop. One of them will simply push things a little too far.
We all know what happens after that! The fire that has been slowly getting hotter and hotter as 2018 has been progressing will ignite. There will be all sorts of ramifications from this, far too many here for me to write about. The chances of this happening in this calendar year are 50/50 NEVER have the odds been so good. If by some chance we do get out of 2018 without stage 4 happening. The odds get greater as time goes by as does the chance for a full-on civil war.
16. BLM and reverse racism slowly fade but Anti-Semitism raises its large ugly head
Black Lives Matter lost it’s patron when Barrack Obama left office. With Barrack Obama not needing a diversion like BLM to keep the focus off him, it started a long slow decline which will continue into 2018.
As much as I’d like to celebrate this fact there’s just one problem. Anti Semites have followed the same track we’re using to fight regressives to reawaken an old forgotten issue namely attacks on Jews. I’ve seen more Anti Semitism online in the last 6 months than I did in the previous 5 years. I’ve even had one of them actively follow me online to keep yelling at me. Something that I had only encountered from an Atheism Plus acolyte.
This is the ugly stepchild of the whole movement. These people do more to prove the regressives right than anything else we do. If this group isn’t either removed or muted in some way these people could defeat everything we’ve been fighting for.
17. Increased Tension in Europe
As it currently sits the Regressives ‘won’ in France and Germany. The only problem with this in that in both cases the winning party now has to deal with an opposition that won’t allow them to put the Islamic issue under the carpet. Blatant attempts in Europe are being made to prevent the immigrant issue from getting out into the mainstream. Like calling the new crop of rioters on New Years Eve men or people instead of Immigrants
Belgium, Ireland, Hungary, Italy, Finland, Russia and late in the year Sweden all have elections scheduled this year. Each of them are going to situations where. The Regressives are going to be grinding their teeth as they watch their hold, not just on power but their ability to control information slip away from them.
You combine this with the United States Mid Terms we’re probably going to get a clear picture of where things are headed by Mid Year and will definitely know what’s afoot by the end of 2018
So How Does the Year Look?
It’s going to start out slowly. Unlike 2016 when Feminists and SJW’s took an absolute mauling. In 2017 they think they did well because they took Hollywood and exposed a whole bunch of evil men to the world.
In truth what they did is cannibalize their own ranks. You may have noticed but in case you hadn’t NOT ONE of us so-called ‘Deplorables’ got taken down by the opposition this year. Male Feminists though had a really bad year.
I’ve been avoiding calling what I’m involved in a Culture War, but that’s exactly what we’re in now. Wars require a lot of things and they tend to use up a lot of resources. In this fight, there are Three things needed Cultural, Political and Financial Capital. Cultural being the most important by the end of the year. Each of these is tied together and like any war goodwill from the culture is what maintains the opposition. For us it doesn’t matter, we’re used to being the underdogs and not having the support of the population or the money to fight back in the media or swing elections etc.
A series of larger and larger brush fires will start up as 2018 goes on. Each of these will cause more damage to the Regressives, who will do like they’ve always done. Their allies and supporters in Washington, LA and New York will keep them afloat. But as these groups all start to falter under the weight of their own hubris. More desperate measures will have to be taken. By the end of 2018 or the early part of 2019, there will likely be a full scale and now very public culture war.
And then it gets ugly!
Enjoy the silence people, the embers that are going to start this off are already smoldering.
