Purple Pills EVERYWHERE!

purple-pills

In case you haven’t noticed there’s been an upsurge in popularity in all of the various factions of the Manosphere. If you haven’t seen this, you really need to start paying attention and man (or woman for that matter)

This like almost everything else I’ve encountered in life is a double-edged sword. On the one hand, we have a growing awareness of the situation that is taking place. The Left in its current form is entirely toxic. Men are getting shafted in marriage, relationships or nearly everywhere else. And Feminists, Fundamentalist Muslims and SJW’s simply cannot live and live, much like organizations like the Moral Majority used to do.

People can see this, the establishment specifically the on the left has decided in its wisdom that they know better what’s better for us. Not allowing us as individuals to make their own choices. This is what people call the red pill moment that moment when they see what’s going on around them and awaken to the reality of the situation around them.

This is the scene from the Matrix where Neo first takes the Red Pill

If you’ve seen this movie, you know that Neo doesn’t become fully awake right away. He had to recuperate medically be introduced to the Matrix slowly before he was shown what the reality of the Matrix truly was,. It was only when he learned the real truth via Morpheus teaching him via the construct, that the process of freeing himself from it and becoming empowered could begin in any real serious way

There’s a space of time in the movie between where Neo gets free from the Matrix and where he’s shown the truth of it. That phase is what many of us would like to call the Purple Pill.

But what is the Purple Pill? Well first you have to be aware of what the Red Pill is

This is a basic definition of the Red Pill, and many within the Red Pill community have taken many different meanings depending on who they are. Some of these are good some are not.

Purple Pill is that transition between Blue Pill (Asleep) and the Red Pill (Awake). This transition in the Matrix takes time. Some people are ‘blessed’ with taking a full hit right away. Although it’s not something, they’d consider a blessing at the time.

In my case, my Purple pill transition happened over a couple of decades. Starting with Loreena Bobbit, Noam Chomsky, and an Introduction the Sterling Institute of Relationship.

https://www.sterling-institute.com/

It ended when Atheism Plus decided that they needed to turn the entire Atheist community into a giant social justice warrior machine. They were only partially successful in doing this, mostly because Atheists are generally a group of independent-minded and strongly opinionated people who for some odd reason had the nerve to demand that Feminists bring actual facts to the table rather than just accepting what they were told. myers

When a person is in transition that person may not and might not want to absorb or listen to all the Red Pill concepts. So what you’ll run into this crowd is people that for instance or wholly on board when it comes to Gamergate, but will start screaming at you like a fanatical SJW if you criticize Black Lives Matter. Or they’ll run a men’s rights page or group on Facebook but will get their panties in a knot if you post something anti-feminist.

I’ve personally run into both of these, but I also ran into this lovely example brought to you by Feminism LOL

I’d like to say that what Diana has encountered is the exception rather than the rule. That would be a lie, though, I recently did a search on YouTube using the terms “No Longer a Feminist” or “I’m an Antifeminist, ” and the search yielded some fascinating results

Most of these videos were done in the last 18-24 months. We have the usual suspects on here Karen Straughn, and Julie Borowski for instance, have put out enough content that pretty much everyone except perhaps hardcore angry MGTOW would dismiss them. Others though like Kisara Vera, for example, leave you questioning their motives especially after you’ve seen Kisara Vera’s video on MGTOW for instance.

I understand that Kisara Vera may have some good points, but honestly, I’m not very keen on listening to someone who is this ignorant about MGTOW as she was in this video. Luckily for all involved Turd Flinging Monkey made a rebuttal video

We need to keep in mind two different things here when it comes to Purple Pillers. The first being this that not everyone that’s signing on board and claiming to be Red Pill, MRA, MGTOW, Gamergate, Anti-SJW is whom they appear to be. Some of them have very self-serving motives, in fact, everyone myself included needs to be vetted very carefully.

The other is this these Purple Pillers are like that new guy that just started at the workplace. He might be quite enthusiastic, and gun ho about his new job/status but isn’t aware of the lay of the land, the politics and in the case of the Red Pill the personal responsibility that comes from taking the Red Pill. And not all of them are going to become fully awake and aware, some of them are going to go running back.

The thing to remember here is that these people are like children in some ways, they really, honestly don’t know yet. And much like that new guy on the job site we need to have a little patience and understanding, especially when they join sites on Facebook for instance then start tone policing, virtue signaling or even worse. I ran into such a guy at one group on Facebook where this one Black Man apparently didn’t want to hear about how racist the Huffington Post had become and decided to start screaming at me, rather than providing facts to back up what he was saying.

I’ve been running into a lot of this lately, and I’ve been hearing from other people complaining about this as well. This is a consequence of a group or subculture becoming larger. Yes, we get the growth, fame, and influence that come with greater numbers. We also get more dissenting opinions from those not fully aware. For those that are feeling the frustration well up from having to explain basic concepts inside groups that were previously free of this. Understand that these people are not at the same level of awareness that you are. In time they’ll either come around or leave but take it with a grain of salt. When I started this I got ripped into for posting up an article that wasn’t quite right either. It was explained to me why it was this way and I got what they were saying. In doing so they opened the door to MGTOW.

We’re here to show the others that come after us what this Red Pill means, it’s not up to me, you or anyone to decide what that means for them personally. Maybe you will get a Cypher but you’ll free a lot of others on the way.

My Guesses for 2017

2017

I’ll have to admit that it was a little hard to come up with reasonable or likely guesses for 2017. Unlike the last two years where you could only look at Feminists or other regressives and just sit back a predict batshit crazy or epic stupidity in larger and more grandiose amounts. This year there’s a period right after Donald Trump gets sworn in where we’ll all be feeling this guy out before I can say much of anything for certain.

But then again that’s probably where I should start

  1. People hold their breath for President Donald Trump 

3

The first 100 days are usually a honeymoon period for almost any new politician. In this case, I’m guessing that almost everyone will be waiting to see how Donald Trump conducts himself, before deciding on a course of action. Once this period is over, though, we’ll likely have a pretty good idea how long it’ll take for the culture war to heat up again

But that gets me to my next point here.We’ve all been seeing the news about alleged ‘Russian Hackers’ and more specifically about how Barrack Obama has been doing as much as he can to needle the Russians before Donald Trump assumes office.

That though leads to a somewhat logical (I hope) guess for #2

    2 The Establishment may attempt to distract us from the ever widening internal culture war with an outside distraction.

There are two different ways that governments will try to deal with mounting internal pressure. They either repress, which is a terrible thing to do in an open marketplace of ideas like the internet. The other way is to start distracting the people with an outside. Now I’m not sure why the establishment would choose to antagonize a nuclear power like Russia. Whom if you remember had and still have enough nukes to turn the entire planet into a giant dayglo parking lot. The term that comes up for me is ‘playing with fire’ in this case nuclear fire! That doesn’t mean we won’t see #3 happening as well

http://www.dailywire.com/news/12143/world-war-iii-obama-just-put-troops-along-michael-qazvini

       3. Transparent attempts to crack down or censor the internet mainly alternative news sites.

israel-internet-censorship-786x350

We saw this almost immediately after the election when a list emerged of ‘fake news’ sites that curiously enough included all the sites that were either against Hillary Clinton or covered the Wikileaks issue extensively. Angela Merkel has even gone so far as to threaten any social media site that published ‘fake news’ with massive fines. It’s not a stretch to see this happen elsewhere in the west too. Certainly wouldn’t put it past Justin Trudeau here in Canada that’s for sure. I do have to point out that Trump’s election was the SECOND time that the establishment didn’t get their way because of the alternate media. Hands up how many of us remember Syria just a few months ago?

This is the list of fake news sites

http://www.dailydot.com/layer8/fake-news-sites-list-facebook/

And this is the original list, note here somehow the National Enquirer isn’t on this list.

https://docs.google.com/document/d/10eA5-mCZLSS4MQY5QGb5ewC3VAL6pLkT53V_81ZyitM/preview

Incidentally, I remember Nancy Pelosi bringing a Bill in back then that was supposed to put a cap on this back then.

And that leads me to guess #4

        4. Gamergate (or a form of it) is not dead back for round #2

Just when you thought the whole sexism and harassment on the internet was done, it’s back! Starring everyone’s least favorite SJW of all time Anita Sarkeesian! Of course unlike 2014-15 this time the ‘bullying’ thing will just be a shell for particular establishment forces to put (or try to) restrictions on social media sites. This time it won’t be gamers getting targetted but everyone. It will start slowly and gain momentum as the year goes by. You may even see some serious money behind this push and the fight isn’t going to be at Comic-Con either. This time it’ll be in Washington DC.

       5. A Watering down of the Manosphere in general

manosphere

While I try to avoid labeling someone. There is still a period after a person ‘wakes up’ where they’re still processing and sorting through all the information they’ve been given. In my case the transition from Blue Pill to Purple Pill to full on Red Pill took decades. In fact had the morons at Atheism+ not been so fanatical in their zeal to turn the Atheist Community into a regressive haven I might still be a purple pill. What I’ve seen is a lot of ‘purple pill’ or not fully awakened people coming into the movement as a whole. Political Correctness and Tone Policing will be much more widespread in 2017. This ties into number six and not in a good way.

       6. A rise in the extreme right inside the movement

There have always been people inside the MRM, MGTOW and Red Pill that were always white nationalists. In fact, regressives have used this fact to project that everyone was like this. The truth of the matter is that much like Feminists that call for the killing of 90% of the males on earth are a small minority. This bunch is also a tiny minority; their issues run parallel to what we’re dealing with especially in regards to the open racism being paraded around in Black Lives Matter like a badge of honor. I have run into more blatant racism and antisemitism in the last month than I have in the previous three years.

        7. More prominent divisions rising inside the Manosphere

On my earlier blog, someone accused me of being USA-centric because I posted up at a group that wasn’t American but another nationality. There have always been people in the MRM that wanted the MRM to be ‘ideologically pure’ in this case to be strictly conservative. Now I’m personally aware of what’s going on in Europe.You have a severe immigrant problem, and they’re not assimilating among other things. I’m not there though so for me to give any opinion on what’s happening there other than. “Yeah it’s bad, and it needs fixing.” could and would make me sound like a complete ignoramus. I write and guess what I know. ; this, by the way, is also why I don’t comment on Father’s Rights much. I’m very sympathetic; I’m also not a dad, and there’s an aspect of the problem that I can’t grasp because I haven’t had the experience. MGTOW, in particular, is growing at an exponential rate, this will mean more than a few different voices. Some of these voices are much healthier than others.

    8. Attacks on MGTOW happen with more frequency and ferocity

MGTOW

A quick check of my reader on WordPress shows that there are considerably more articles on MGTOW than there were even six months ago. I’ve had two different people that just found out about MGTOW come and ask me about it as well. This is the result of larger numbers of people, yes we have more converts (If that’s even the right word to be using). At the same time, MGTOW is also a larger target and one that’s a lot easier to take a ‘swing at’ because it’s not centralized and organized to the same extent that the MRM or even the Red Pill are, and the Red Pill group is also vast and individualistic. I’ve already gone into why people are more antagonistic towards MGTOW on another blog and video.

Not that these attacks are going to go anywhere to quote a friend taking on MGTOW is like trying to sword fight a fart.

    9. I’m not a Feminist or I’m not and/or antifeminist pronouncements rise quickly

blogtwimport140616-femininst

I’m going to be doing a video and blog about this very topic hopefully before the end of the month. To encapsulate the story though there was a woman that came out on YouTube who announced herself as not being Feminist and of course, got dog piled. This prompted me to do a search. When I started out, I had something between 35 and 40 videos. The running total is currently at 50 videos. Thirty-Four of these videos came out in 2016 another 13 were published the year before the lions share coming in the later half of 2015. Translation NINETY PERCENT of these went out in the last year. If you do an “I’m a feminist” search of YouTube, you’ll be lucky to find 5 declaring themselves to be Feminist and none of them recent. That translates out to a ten-fold increase in the last 18-24 months. Now project that out for this time next year…Can you say stampede?

Yes, you can, and it’s also entirely possible this could be a blip on the screen. Saying that it’s trending up and will continue to do so is a pretty safe guess.

    10. Yet ANOTHER months-long period of feminist and/or SJW stupidity

In 2015 we started seeing Feminists literally go on these stretches where for 2 and 3 months at a time. The highlight in 2015 was the epic failure of feminists to do anything about Roosh V when he visited Canada. In 2016 it culminated in the epic stupid doubling down on Jian Ghomeshi after one of his accusers was shown to be an outright liar. In 2015 they just stopped of their own accord, last year it was the election race that distracted everyone away from them after they were in near total free fall. This year there won’t be an election (At least not in North America anyway) to save feminism. The result will be yet another run of epic stupidity. This one though may be longer lasting and the damage done to Feminism by Feminists will likely never be recovered.

We may also be served with a double scoop of stupid because now the SJW’s will also likely engage in a period like this as well.

Don’t hold your breath this likely won’t happen until the later half of 2017.

    11. Very clear signs that Feminism is losing 

Up until now, it’s been something of an inside secret that Feminism and now the SJW’s have been losing. This changed to public because of the election of Donald Trump and the Brexit win. What you’re going to see is some of the smarter feminists start admitting they’re in trouble. Especially when it becomes clear that Trump isn’t going down quickly.

    12. Things start getting violent

argentine_cathedral_585_401_55

Again I can see this happening later on in the year when it becomes apparent that. Donald Trump isn’t going anywhere. And that the attempts by the establishment to censor discussion didn’t have the desired effect. At this point, they’ve nearly run out of cards to play other than yelling louder and lying more blatantly. Doing more of the same that isn’t working only hastens your downfall. Ever dealt with an animal that’s cornered or injured? If you have then, you know what’s about to happen. It won’t be a stage 4 event, but it will certainly load and cock the trigger.

    13. Outrageous and Blatant Lies

If you thought some of the articles done this year were bad (I’m looking at you MTV News) just wait. In 2016 there were only a handful of videos that got pulled because they were so bad. I can see it happening with much greater frequency as the year progresses  Don’t check my facts will almost start being a mantra.

14. Members of the various SJW factions start getting in trouble

I’ve been astounded that some people in this camp haven’t seen themselves in legal hot water yet. That may change this year Anita has already been caught politizing with her non-profit. We’ll start hearing about legal and/or criminal action being started against at least one of these people.

    15. Bill Cosby Trial! 

Bill Cosby Heads To Court For Preliminary Hearing

How could I overlook this gem?

Due to happen in June? This will be the rape trial of the year to watch, and I’m guessing that Feminists are going to go all out here. Mostly for the reasons mentioned previously. There’s more than enough reasonable doubt here. I even remember one lawyer demanding 100 million dollars, or they would press charges! Now much like Jian Ghomeshi he may well be guilty, but events around the case also look like yet another conspiracy. One that’ll start falling apart once the actual trial starts. Expect LOTS of coverage on this, most of it attempting to declare him guilty before the fact.

A Guilty verdict here will start an extended period of feminist gloating, after all by the time the trial is over they’ll be in serious need of any kind of win. Feminism hasn’t had any major wins since VAWA was passed in 2014. However, if he’s found Not Guilty! Well, then everything I mentioned about things getting violent becomes much more real!

I don’t know why I left this till now, but this trial could be a lynchpin the same way the election was in 2016.

    16. Virtue Signal Failure

Unlike Bill Cosby, I overlooked this one because it’s such a safe guess that almost anyone can make it. (I predict a quake somewhere in the Pacific Rim!) The Amy Schumer Barbie movie has all the makings of one serious stinker. There may well be others.

    17. Call on Donald Trump to be impeached or resign by the end of summer

Started with politics going to end with politics. This is likely another very safe call for me. Why do you ask? Well, you see I live in Alberta, and we had this election here in 2015! The New Democrat Party won, a stunning turn for a province that had been Conservative since almost before I was born.

Rachel Notley barely even had time to warm up a seat in the Alberta Legislature here when people were demanding a recall or that she resign. Now this is an example of the blind attacking coming from the right. I can quite easily see it coming from the ‘regressives’ in the US within a couple of months of Trump sitting in the Oval Office.

  18. A Hard Right or Nationalist party wins a country (Or two) in Europe this year. 

Given the complete and total inability of the left in Europe to acknowledge that there’s even a problem with the current immigration situation. When it comes to election time this year for certain countries, you’re going to see right leaning or even far right leaning parties gain greater prominence some of them may even win, especially in France.

Well, that’s it for me this year much like how I see the year starting slowly and then heating up as we get closer to the end of the year. Same thing happened to the blog, started slow, but once my thought processes started going, I got on a run. Very quiet almost mute start to 2017 as we all hold our breath for the great unknown (sort of) that is Donald Trump. Once it’s clear where things are going though it’ll heat up quickly. Especially if Bill Cosby is found not guilty.

Let’s see how well my guesses hold up for 2017

 

 

Huffington Post is Racist AGAIN!

6359067994912799141463257775_reverse-racism

Last March The Huffington Post ran an article that just dripped racism. What I decided to do was reverse the races on the article and reprint it with the races reversed.

https://theredpillnation.wordpress.com/2015/03/29/lets-just-reverse-the-races-on-this-and-see-how-it-sounds/

What I concluded at that time was this

“It now sounds like something that a white Supremacist would write if they were trying very hard not to look like a racist. Someone trying to hide their racism but anyone with half a brain can see it for what it is.”

Huffington Post went out and played the race card again! This time, they did it over, Donald Trump. Some *1 idiot named Christian Gabriel decided to try and use shaming and veiled racism.

christian-gabriel

So Christian on the off chance you should ever read this fuck you! I vote for who I want and I’m not going to get bullied into voting Clinton. But you know what let’s just reverse the races on your polished turd and see how it looks. I also switched out Donald Trump’s name for him.

I’m not a “supporter.” I actually think everything about this election cycle is disgusting. Sad. Uninspiring. I’ve been mostly apathetic. From black feminism to #bernieorbust to the HRC to Bernie Bros I’m actually so fed up that I don’t read or watch any news related to our candidates anymore. I left him out above because that black devil man doesn’t need any more acknowledgment from me. But curiously y’all are about to hand him the election? And for what? Because you’re salty that your candidate isn’t going to compete for the presidency? Bernie put up a good fight, a really, really good fight. And god damn he has some amazing ideas that would totally revolutionize American culture, economics and our society in general, but he’s not going to be the president of the United States. Deal with it. Right now, the only two people that have any chance at that are Hillary Clinton and Him! THAT’S RIGHT HIM. This isn’t a fucking joke. This is REAL. And y’all have the audacity to sit back and say “I won’t vote” or “I’ll vote for Him” or “I’ll vote for ___________ so & so who isn’t going to become president but it’s cute you voted for them one time because of your principles.” It’s bullshit. And to be frank, how fucking dare you.

Forty-nine people were killed at a gay club called Pulse in Orlando, Florida this weekend. FORTY-NINE. A singer who was on “The Voice” was killed less than 24 hours before that by a crazed black man with a gun. White people are executed by police with guns on a regular basis, so much so that it’s barely news anymore. But you’re willing to let a black supremacist, misogynist scam artist who supports the idea of bringing MORE guns into elementary schools (among other places) to become the president of the United States because your candidate didn’t make it to the finals? HOW FUCKING DARE YOU.

WE ARE DYING. I’m sorry that an aging crotchety black man didn’t fulfill all of your hopeful revolutionary Obama-redux fantasies. I truly am. I actually want someone like Bernie Sanders to be the president. I want our entire social, governmental and economic structures to change drastically. I’m just as disgusted as you by Hillary Clinton’s ties to big business and corporate greed. But I’m also living in reality. I can have hopeful visions for the future and accept the present. Maybe that’s because I’m a white man who watches in horror almost every day of the week when I see new videos of other white people harassed, mistreated, degraded, brutalized and murdered by the authoritative systems of our black supremacist nation. Have you ever experienced this reality?

THIS IS IT. It’s either going to be Hillary Clinton or Him who’s sworn into office this November. How many people will suffer a multitude of hardships under his presidency? How many people will continue to live in danger? How much worse will it get under a president who advocates violence against those who don’t agree with you or are different than you? You’ll be fine because you have enough money to keep you safe? What about me? I don’t have all that money. Didn’t you know anyone who got shot last night? That sort of thing would never happen to you? I’m scrolling through my Facebook wall seeing desperate plea after plea and prayer after prayer hoping that friends and loved ones are still alive. But you can’t vote democrat if it’s not your candidate because of your “morals.” HOW FUCKING DARE YOU.

Honestly, I don’t give a fuck how you feel about any candidate. It’s absolutely irrelevant to me. If you are a person with a soul, who wants to see any further good develop from mankind in the next four years, you will do whatever you can to stop Him from becoming the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. Even if that means voting for a black female career politician who’s played the game just as dirty as every man who’s come before her, including our current president. Don’t y’all wish we could just vote him in another four years? Maybe you wouldn’t if you took a look at his donor list. But would you risk letting Him win if Obama was the Democratic nominee? Would his shadiness matter then like Hillary’s does so deeply to you? This country absolutely needs a revolution. But at this moment in time, you’re literally choosing between the somewhat unlikely possibility of progressive change or an orange reality tv star who won’t renounce support from black supremacists. And somehow you expect me to accept that your conscience or morals matter at all? FUCK YOU.

WE ARE DYING. Please don’t hand our lives over to this black devil madman. You might survive this. We might not. Do whatever you can to help us. Help me. Please don’t let Him become the president of the United States. I don’t want our blood to be on your hands.

Go ahead and take a look at that again! I remember hearing very similar language being spouted off by KKK, Aryan Nation and Skinheads in the 70’s and 80’s. When you switch the races around, this time, it reads almost like the rantings of someone from that organization. The only problem is though is that this is being published in the Huffington Post and not some obscure dirt press in the deep south *2. This is the second time now that I’ve taken an article like this from the Huffington Post and done this.

To anyone that ever reads this on the editorial staff on the Huffington post. Do you have any fucking clue what the definition of racism is? Here you go have a look you stunned idiot

rac·ism
ˈrāˌsizəm/
noun
  1. the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races.
    • prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one’s own race is superior.
      “a program to combat racism”
      synonyms: racial discrimination, racialism, racial prejudice, xenophobia, chauvinism, bigotry,casteism

      “Aborigines are the main victims of racism in Australia”

http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/racism

Seriously Huffington Post! What the hell is your problem? I’m not white myself and I’d consider myself classicly Liberal and I can see the racism practically dripping off the article. My immediate conclusion is that Milo was right when he said that Regressives just hate themselves.

so-sorry

*1 For the record, I avoid using the word idiot on the blog but in this case though it fits

*2 For anyone in the south no insult intended the stereotype fit

My Review of Ghostbusters!

Ghostbusters-2016

I’ve been down this road before. A year ago Aaron Clarey called for a boycott of Mad Max Fury Road based on the trailers.

Why You Should Not Go See “Mad Max: Feminist Road”

Now, as a guy that works in the industry, I knew better than to judge a movie by the trailer and I decided to see for myself. I waited until AFTER the weekend release for Mad Max Fury Road because I didn’t want to give support to the opening weekend. I ended up getting the flu that very weekend which ironically enough kick started me on the most difficult period of my life. That’s another story though and at the time I had no idea what was coming for me. You can see what I wrote and concluded about those movies in the links below

Why You Should Not Go See “Mad Max: Feminist Road”

https://theredpillnation.wordpress.com/2015/05/12/i-will-probably-go-see-mad-max-fury-road-despite-the-potential-feminist-preaching-in-it/

Mad-Max-Fury-Road-lovely-day-1024x640

There were clearly some people that didn’t agree with me and that’s perfectly OK. The thing was though at the time it was MRA’s that were allegedly calling for this boycott no such boycott was declared. Except by RooshV and The Return of Kings Crowd and anyone that’s bothered to fact check knows that while Return of Kings has views that straddle those of MRA’s it is in fact not an MRA site at all.

Ghostbusters though was another story entirely. Right from the start this movie rolled out a ‘progressive movie’ with an all-female cast, a progressive director (Paul Feig) and the studio and producers Amy Pascale in particular played up about how progressive this movie was going to be. Because there weren’t enough females in Hollywood due to Patriarchy. So right from the start, they demanded that you like this movie just because. Then the trailers came out, Do we even need to review that? Yeah lets just have a look just to remind us of how bad it got

Ghostbusters Trailer

Yeah, you gotta like that dislike to like ratio.

So rather than realizing that HEY maybe we should change our approach. The idiots over the studio decided to double then TRIPLE down and start insulting anyone that panned the trailers. Even going so far as to accuse anyone who didn’t like the movie of being a misogynist! Let’s not even get into the selective censoring that Sony did at their YouTube site to make it appear that way. Naturally, of course, this was caught called, and now Sony had real egg on it’s face.

Then director Paul Feig tried to White Knight people by attempting to guilt them into seeing the movie.

http://www.cinemablend.com/new/Ghostbusters-Critics-Dissed-By-Sony-Head-Epic-Rant-95527.html

That do much better than the studio had done. By the beginning of July, it was clear that Sony had pretty much given up on trying to hype the film

And that was that Ghostbusters was in all likelihood going to tank, and there was nothing they could do about it? It didn’t stop Jezebel from trying to make it look like it would do well.

http://jezebel.com/ghostbusters-earned-3-5-million-on-its-first-night-in-1783748193

But as per usual all you had to do was pull away the top layer and the whole thing began to stink up the joint

Empty Theaters

In the face of this, I was tempted to do what I had done with Mad Max Fury Road and wait out the weekend before seeing it. Personally, I didn’t like being told by a bunch self-righteous Cultural Marxists that I should like or enjoy this movie just because well woman. Ego aside though I just had a feeling that this time UNLIKE Mad Max Fury Road, I couldn’t afford to sit the weekend out. So I told my ego to take a fucking hike declared that I was going and promptly got unfriended by someone. Even though I had a perfectly valid explanation

Unfriended

So on Saturday night I decided that I would take one for the team and head on over to West Edmonton Mall. I marched up the Kiosk pulled out my cards and paid for the 3D experience to boot! Immediately I could tell there was a problem. I had already seen the pic about the empty theaters, but I had no idea it would be this bad. The theater wasn’t even 20% full! I made sure I double checked this with the ticket vendor as I walked in. 41 seats sold in a theater designed for 220. I didn’t bother to scan the audience to see who was there because that sort of thing usually doesn’t matter to me. I settled in, put on my glasses and watched the show.

Now here’s the part where you’re expecting me to tell you how bad the show was right? Well, you’d be wrong on that part! The movie was in fact, decent, by no means was it a classic and I’m sure as hell not seeing it again on the big screen. I would buy it for my own personal DVD collection though at a later date. But don’t read too much into that I also have real classics like “Kung Pow” in my movie collection.

No! The movie was decent I’m not sure if was 3D decent but it had moments and it was even quite funny at times. I thought Kate McKinnon was especially funny, I should point out though that I have a predilection for that kind of character that she was playing in the first place,the other actors were also OK too.

Now though there were also a lot of things I didn’t like. Starting with the way Chris Hemsworth’s character is treated. The gushing by the women when he comes would if the gender roles were reversed had caused some feminists to go into spasmodic fits of offense. In fact as far as I can tell there isn’t a single decent male character in this entire movie. The CGI was also overdone.

As I left I did some quick asking around of other people leaving the theater. They also thought it was alright and a couple people thought it was better than Ghostbusters 2! I’m not sure if I’d agree with that assessment myself but I can say this.

The Studio, Director AND if you want to believe this done by Midnights Edge Producer Amy Pascal and her team are the ones you should hold accountable for this disaster.

Had the stunned idiots at Sony just made this movie and then quietly marketed it as another movie, instead of trying to march this out as an “Oh look how damn progressive we are” movie. And then went so far as to try and shame and force people into liking it. This movie might’ve had a fighting chance to at least break even domestically. As it is though they didn’t do that, instead they did what Feminists and SJW’s have been doing time and again, they doubled down and just kept doubling down. Now though as of the time of this writing the numbers for the weekend will be released in less than 4 hours.

We all know what’s going to happen next. In fact, some people have already tried to do this. They’ll blame those evil nasty patriarchal shitlords for killing the movie. Never mind that this didn’t work or even happen on Mad Max Fury Road. No, they’ll blame anyone other than themselves for their failure. And let’s be blunt here it was THEIR HANDLING of this movie that caused it to tank. You insult your audience that’s exactly what will happen. But here’s the irony of them doing this, though.

They will hand the Greater Men’s Movement it’s single biggest win of the year BY DEFAULT! This coupled with the fact that ICMI 16 in London went off with barely a hitch has in has undone much if not all the damage that the secret feminist offensive did in the early months of 2016. They shot themselves in the foot again and will blame us for it. And you know what? We’ll take it, you’re welcome.

If any of the actors involved in this project ever read this let me say to you. I’m sorry, I know you put some effort into your characters and you did have a decent movie. The progressives killed this movie, not us. Please understand this anger wasn’t directed at you the talent. It was directed at a bunch of people who think that they can force me and other people to like something when we all know that it has to stand on it’s own merits in a free and open marketplace. The people who did this though The Studio, Director and from what I understand Producer Amy Pascal they’re the ones you need to save your anger for.

So thank you again Feminists and Progressives for walking over and handing us the single biggest win of the year. I’m sure you’ll do it again too because idiots like you never listen or learn from what I’ve seen. I mean seriously all we had to do was stand and point and you did all the work for us. Next time just shut the fuck up and make a movie.

Cannot wait to see the numbers Monday morning! (It’s 5:30 am where I am now)

Update:

I just went over and looked at the numbers for Ghostbusters over the weekend. It grossed $46,018,755 over the weekend coming in second behind The Secret Life of Pets.

http://www.the-numbers.com/weekend-box-office-chart

That fact though doesn’t change the fact that the total budget for this movie was $144,000,000 given the large drop off in attendance that usually happens between week 1 and week 2 it’s fairly safe to assume the domestic box office will not save this movie from being a catastrophic loss. The International Market may allow Ghostbusters to come in with a slight loss and it’s always possible that word of mouth may cause one of those rare occasions where the 2nd week is better than the first week. This movie though as decent as it is Ghostbusters doesn’t have the kind of impact that would cause this it’s just not outstanding enough to make that kind of impact.

So Initial feelings were right! We won without really even having to fire a shot, they beat themselves just like they’ve been doing for a few years now.

 

 

 

 

 

Keyboard Warrior addendum…The Fanatic

keyboardwarriors

I’m sitting here tonight getting ready to share the next part of my series and I’m also wondering…what else?

Online activism has been my specialty for the last few months. I win upwards of 95 plus percent of my engagements. In fact in the last year I can count the number of times that I’ve lost on one hand. This has been all well and good but if you go back to some of the earlier blog posts, I made you’ll see that I made the prediction of the hardening position that the opposition to moving men’s issues forward would face as this went on.

https://theredpillnation.wordpress.com/2015/03/20/just-one-guy-guessing-out-loud-here/

If you go back through that blog, you’ll notice that I made a couple of predictions that have already happened. Namely the rise of the Anti-MRM feminist and the decrease of white knights but the escalation in tactics of the ones that remained behind.

Just two-plus years ago it wasn’t unusual at all for me to have to face down 5 or 6 people at the same time. This last year I’ve never had more than two. The thing is though is that that one person will post up more mindless babble and bullshit than those other six would together a few years ago. In that last couple of months, I’ve encountered more of this new white knight than I did in the previous few years before that.

What you have to understand about this type of person is that unlike someone who has just a passing interest in supporting these toxic feminists. This new type of White Knight is what are called fanatics! These men and women are not new, and they’ve existed throughout history in varies guises. Here’s what’s happening the main sources for producing the White Knights is slowly but surely starting to evaporate as the actions of Feminists start to become more public. These BOYS honestly believe that what they’re doing is for the greater good. Being a former White Knight myself, I saw myself a decent person doing something for a group of people that was being oppressed and abused. I knew they were because my mommy and sisters were telling me that this was going on; nobody told me any differently. What was different for me was that that in my family were such large hypocrites that I was able to figure it out. I was also given the time and space to figure it out on my own. What I saw once I had some uncomfortable facts pointed out to me. Loreena Bobbit was getting away with cutting her husband’s penis off and women openly celebrating this fact. Started a line of dominos that led me to where I am now.

Almost all of these white knights have men around them that have been screwed over by women. If they haven’t then, they’ve likely also seen at least once or twice that there are women that truly hate them just because they’re men. My take on this was that these women weren’t the majority and that they would never be driving the bus. The same guy who told me showed me the feminists celebrating what had happened with Loreena Bobbit told me this when I mentioned that same story that these women were not in the majority. Told me to look another time, and that this time, don’t look at the women that were openly misandric look at the ones that associated with them but stayed quiet.  Once I expanded that group, I tested a few of these women. What I encountered was shocking! This group was as bad if not even worse than the open man haters. All of them also had reasons personal or professional for remaining quiet. Once I factored in this group, the percentage of man haters in Feminism went up a lot! I could venture a guess to say it’s somewhere between 30-40% of all feminists. Maybe even the majority in some places. The other part of it from what I saw also had issues with men above and beyond just women’s rights. Suffice to say I ended my association with Feminists at that point. It was also this along with reading ‘Manufacturing Consent’started a cascade that almost took me back to using

Manufacturing Consent

This process is likely very similar to what’s happening with White Knights everywhere. It’s hard to justify defending people that have no intention of respecting you for your efforts. Or worse would throw you under the bus the moment you make a mistake or no longer useful. Just ask Joss Whedon

CEMbl-pWIAAy2f7

Also, you have to keep in mind that these guys also get lives. They get jobs, get married or develop a career. They just don’t have time for activism like they used to. Or they just get wiser to what life is actually like, so they drop out. Seeing your best friend getting shafted in divorce or falsely accused will do that.

There is this other faction though the ones that are true believers. They are beyond reason, beyond logic or worse they know but are too proud or have invested too much emotionally into this to back out. And don’t laugh if you come from a family where the mother is narcissistic showing weakness could get you in big trouble. There’s also the whipped manginas doing this for some vague sexual payoff. These are guys that are being willfully ignorant. You’ve encountered some of these before. They’re the ones still supporting the KKK or Neo-Nazis or take the masterminds behind the Paris shootings.

So what you’re seeing here is a slowly shrinking pool of men advocating like White Knights. The ones that remain behind are fanatics.

Along with this you’re starting to see more women coming on to men’s rights sites with the sole intention of trolling. The best example of this type of troll is Big Red

 

Now this event happened in 2012 and up until about six weeks ago. You rarely saw a White Knight go onto an MRA/MGTOW or Red Pill on Facebook (Don’t know about Tumblr though) and start trolling. In the past month though I’ve encountered more trolls at these sites than I did in the two years before that.

So what’s going on here is this. Feminists and White Knights KNOW that they’re losing. They can’t stay in their echo chambers because those places are no longer getting bigger. They HAVE TO leave the chambers to win and when they do they get creamed because their narrative simply doesn’t hold up under scrutiny.

You’re going to see a lot more of this happen in the next few months. You’re also going to see more organized efforts like attempting to create a page around an issue and then attempt to play it off as an MRA site. Like what happened with No Hymen Diamond on Facebook

https://www.facebook.com/No-Hymen-No-Diamond-1579270142332185/?fref=ts

A page they decided to play off to Huffington Post as an MRA page. Almost all the other places you couldn’t comment on the article

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/no-hymen-no-diamond-group-searches-for-beautiful-virgin-brides-wtf_560558e1e4b0dd85030730a9

Just giving to all a heads up expect more articles like this in the future.

What to do about this?

So far all of the feminists that have shown up at MRA sites have been trolls. This doesn’t mean that they all fall into that category. First make an attempt to determine if they’re actually a troll. Usually they will be but ask do try avoiding shooting first. I’ve been in the habit of shooting first so far and I realize that staying on a permanent combat footing isn’t always helpful. Ask a couple of questions before you decide to treat her/him like a troll. Once determined you can do one of two things. You can then either have a dialogue (Rarely) or you can go into Warrior mode. The dialogue needs to emphasize the misandry and harassment that Feminists have done in regards to men. Avoid lecturing and pointing fingers at the same time though s/he has by their inactivity in regards to the other feminists in her ranks is partially her fault. Her unwillingness to deal with that faction within feminism is at least partially her problem.

Now for the other idiots NO MERCY

keep-calm-and-no-no-no-no-mercy

They were stupid enough to go on to a Men’s site. they’ll get treated the same way Men’s Activists get treated on Feminist sites.

There will come a day when we can start hitting Feminist websites. That time isn’t now.

Bahar Mustafa says “I was victim” Coming to a news outlet near you

v2-bahar-mustafa

So in case you’ve been living under a rock you know that everyone’s favorite racist Bahar Mustafa quit her job! Please don’t jump up and celebrate at this very moment, though. I’m just as happy as you are,  what can I say though she brought this on herself? Yes, she did the attempt to get her fired earlier this year when she didn’t allow white males to attend an event at Goldsmiths and then posting up this picture in response.

Bahar Mustafa

And let’s not forget the wonderful video rebuttal on YouTube where among other things there’s open snickering at men’s rights

 

This, of course, brought caused a student petition at Goldsmiths to get her fired and a corresponding online petition.

https://www.change.org/p/expel-bahar-mustafa-from-goldsmiths-university-for-criminal-misconduct-bahar-mustafa-should-be-removed-from-study-at-goldsmiths-university

When this didn’t work, she then got arrested for this tweet

#killallwhitemen

She even got support from people that she wasn’t expecting to hear it from

http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/10/06/bahar-mustafa-should-never-have-been-arrested-for-tweeting/

Now, you would THINK that someone who has just dodged a bullet like this one would’ve learned her lesson! Especially when some of her most vocal critics spoke out against her being arrested in the first place! But I guess that’s just asking too much from her isn’t it.

http://www.vice.com/en_ca/read/bahar-mustafa-exclusive-interview-893

Direct quote from this interview about her unexpected support

Controversy-monger Katie Hopkins and conservative journalist Milo Yiannopoulos were among a few of your unlikely allies—I’m interested to know what your feelings were about them backing you.
“Well, they are not my allies—I did not ask for their support, and I don’t want it. They stand for everything I’m against. I was so embarrassed when Hopkins tweeted in support—I would never accept the support from an attention-seeking, classist idiot who thinks immigrants are less than vermin. I did enjoy watching the twats of the gamergate scandal squabble online over whether or not to offer support to a feminist-slash-social-justice-warrior because not to would mean that their entire free speech platform would come crashing down. To them, and many other right-wing pricks, free speech means the right to be as offensive as possible. For many of us, free speech means the right to bring the injustices of the state to the fore so that we can organize against it without fear or intimidation, prison, or death.”

Bahar let me say it publicly right here! “Yeah, you’re fucking welcome asshole. I seriously doubt that you or any of your ‘allies’ would’ve returned the favor.”

At this point, I could start diagnosing Bahar but I’m going to save this for later. That statement she made at VICE pretty much says it all. It also doesn’t do much for VICE’s very rapidly eroding reputation.

So now she’s weathered three attacks and as you can see she’s just a humble as ever. (This is the part where I wish there was a sarcasm font) A sane person at this point would smarten the fuck up and fly straight. Because at this point your allies in the Goldsmiths College Student Union have to start considering their association with her. But she isn’t sane, because no sooner does she clear the arrest when she starts up again this time at the very student union office that she works at. This is what finally gets her to quit.

http://www.standard.co.uk/news/london/goldsmiths-diversity-officer-bahar-mustafa-accused-of-bullying-and-harassment-a3119256.html

But wait that’s not all no sooner does she quit her job in melodramatic fashion

Ragequit

But then this comes out right after she quits her job. This article came out five days after she quit.

http://www.breitbart.com/london/2015/11/25/you-deserve-to-be-raped-in-every-hole-by-hordes-of-muslims-email-sent-from-killallwhitemen-campaigner-bahar-mustafa-to-pamela-gellar/

Pamela Gellar

OK, it’s entirely possible that these two events are not related. That being said I’ve experienced people like this before. You know the type, the ones that are always complaining or reporting someone. The one that is an absolute killjoy and causes everyone in the room to either leave or shut up the moment they walk in the room. You know what I’m talking about here the workplace bully.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Workplace_bullying

e181c7a8154f1c45ec450621cc852b13

What I guess here is this, and let me make this clear that this is sheer speculation on my part. Adrihani Abd Rashid likely had received multiple complaints about Bahar. Like most toxic workplace situations she likely to a certain point sympathized with her position even though she didn’t necessarily agree with her tactics. Also, because of her past, she couldn’t just fire Bahar without causing a shitstorm that likely would’ve landed in the Student Union’s lap. This is a very common tactic of workplace bullies make everyone around you afraid and if they speak up? Well in Bahar’s case she had a full Twitter mob ready to pounce on you. So poor Adrihani was in a pickle but then out of the blue LOOK HERE. She sent tweets to Pamela Gellar, threatening tweets to boot. Well, now she had all the reason in the world to get rid of her. She quietly pulled Bahar into her office and gave her an ultimatum I’ve been given before “Quit or be fired”. She chose to quit and of course as you’ve seen above didn’t leave without yet more melodrama.

I should also point out that playing the race card is something workplace bullies will do at the drop of a hat

http://blogs.lse.ac.uk/diversity/2012/05/playing-the-race-card/

So that’s the speculation on what happened. The odds on her being not guilty of both the #killallwhitemen tweet and that e-mail sent to Pamela Gellar using her own Goldsmiths Student Union e-mail are slim and none. More speculation on my part, but I’m going to say that given what I’ve seen I have to say that at the very least Bahar Mustafa has a severe case of narcissistic personality disorder.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Narcissistic_personality_disorder

https://www.psychologytoday.com/conditions/narcissistic-personality-disorder

Before any smartass says “well duh!” let me make this clear that not everyone will figure that out about her right away. More likely she was known as either crazy or a bully. But the clincher for me is the fact that over and over she dodges a bullet. And she did have more than a few shot at her before she was finally ‘forced to quit’. Instead of saying Uh Oh better smarten up, she goes right on ahead and keeps doing what she’s doing and doesn’t for one second ever consider that she did all this to herself.

I’d like to say good riddance and fuck off somewhere Bahar, but you know what this probably isn’t over! No, she won’t be in the spotlight but she will get interviewed sooner or later. Just giving you all the heads up here a person like this never learns their lesson. There’s a 150% chance that she will say she was the victim in this situation. Think I’m bullshitting you? There was another woman like Bahar in the Tech Community her name was Adria Richards! Yeah, that Adria Richards from Donglegate

Adria Richards got fired for getting someone fired for making a dongle joke.

donglegate

Yes, Adria Richards got fired, but don’t you know? She was the victim of this scenario! Not the guy who got fired over the joke, you know the guy with a family and kids?

CBC National did a story on her back in May. Briana Wu is also featured in the back end of this story. Adria’s story starts at 1:41 she says at around 2:52 that she did nothing wrong and then well we all get to see her almost cry on camera then get up and leave just after 6:25. Adria is sorry but not sorry for what she did to the father. She’s sorry because of what happened to her. No attempt to feel or even empathize for the consequences of her actions on anyone else. Again this is speculation but there’s a real possibility that Sendgrid may have also been looking for a reason to let her go, and this Twitter outrage was that spark.

Pardon the sarcasm here, but trigger warning watching this video may cause you facepalm so fucking hard you may end with whiplash, bruising, a concussion or the stupidity of both Adria and Briana may cause your brain to hemorrhage causing permanent brain damage.

Ironically enough when this happened to Adria Richards back in 2013, it was like seeing Mike Tyson getting knocked out. It’s not a coincidence that ever since she got fired Feminism and now also thanks to Gamergate Social Justice Nazis have been a long and ever increasingly steep fall.

Yes, folks, you can count on social justice warrior at some news publication in the next few months doing a sob story about Bahar Mustafa. About how she was run out of Goldsmiths for standing up for principles. And don’t worry about her immediate future either. There are enough Misandrists in Great Britain at the moment that someone will give her a job somewhere. Thankfully though her 15 minutes are probably used up.

But let me make this clear to you Bahar and I’m pretty sure that you or one of your friends will read this blog sooner or later.

“You are not the fucking victim here! You did this to yourself and everyone knows it!”

 

Keyboard Warrior (Part 9)

keyboardwarriors

Picking up where we left off in the Catalogue of Anti-Male Shaming Tactics.

Charge of Unattractiveness (Code Tan) – The Ugly Tan Charge

Discussion: The target is accused of having no romantic potential as far as women are concerned.  Examples:

“I bet you are fat and ugly.”

“You can’t get laid!”

“Creep!”

“Loser!”

“Have you thought about the problem being you?”

Response: This is another example of “circumstantial ad hominem.”  The target’s romantic potential ultimately does not reflect on the merit of his arguments.

In my experience, this code gets pulled by two different types of people. The first being by a woman that’s attempting to shame men for taking a stand. This group also makes the assumption that men (MGTOW in particular) were just people that can’t get laid and have gone over the banner of MGTOW to justify their failures. Such accusations fall apart when you consider that until I reached my late teens had assumed that gay men decided to become gay because they were also failing with women. A very dumb assumption on my part proven wrong when I started meeting gay men in large numbers and finding them in some ways more capable of getting women than I was. The second type I’ve encountered that has tried this is the White Knight that comes in and uses this as a way to justify their superiority to men in the MRM. Again for reasons that I will have to speculate on in another blog MGTOW appear to get this code more than others.

In either case, this code is used as a way to dismiss anything you say to them. A hard correction steering back towards the facts and a direct challenge to what your appearance or relationship status has to the actual discussion usually shoots this down quickly.

Got to remind you about something here a man free is considered a serious threat in some segments of society

Charge of Defeatism (Code Maroon)

Discussion: This shaming tactic is akin to the Charge of Irascibility and the Charge of Cowardice in that the accuser attacks the target’s negative or guarded attitude about a situation.  However, the focus is not so much on the target’s anger or fear, but on the target’s supposed attitude of resignation. 

Examples:

“Stop being so negative.”
“You are so cynical.”
“If you refuse to have relationships with women, then you are admitting defeat.”
“C’mon! Men are doers, not quitters.”

Response: The charge of defeatism can be diffused by explaining that one is merely being realistic about a situation.  Also, one can point out that asking men just to accept their mistreatment at the hands of women and society is the real attitude that is defeatist.  Many men have not lost their resolve; many have lost their patience.

Walking away from a position that’s rigged against you isn’t being negative. Feelings of cynicism are also to be expected taking the red pill has never been a pleasant experience. I’ve yet to meet a man (or even woman for that matter) that has had their opened to reality and didn’t get a little cynical afterwards. You are under no legal obligation to just sit there and take the abuse. Finding a new path and not choosing the ones placed in front of you is your choice, not theirs. Taking the time to retreat, reassess and start again a whole new way is what freedom is about. Like the original author is saying you’re not giving up you’re finding a new way. 

Threat of Withheld Affection (Code Pink) – The Pink Whip

Discussion: The target is admonished that his viewpoints or behavior will cause women to reject him as a mate.  Examples:

“No woman will marry you with that attitude.”
“Creeps like you will never get laid!”

Response: This is an example of the logical fallacy “argumentum ad baculum” (the “appeal to force”).  The accuser attempts to negate the validity of a position by pointing to some undesirable circumstance that will befall anyone who takes said position.  Really, the only way to deal with the “Pink Whip” is to realize that a man’s happiness and worth is not based on his romantic conquests  (including marriage).

At this time, it would be a pleasure not to get married. Getting laid is a process that can be worked around in a couple of different ways. I recently posted up a blog covering this exact thing and cited a chapter from ‘Think and Grow Rich’ By Napoleon Hill that deals with mastering your sexual nature.

http://www.sacred-texts.com/nth/tgr/tgr16.htm

There was also a recent video YouTube post by Turd Flinging Monkey

Neither of the consequences of the Pink Hammer is real when examined closely.

Here some additional codes that have been added and can be found here

http://www.antifeministtech.info/category/additions-to-the-catalog-of-anti-male-shaming-tactics/

What is different about this blog is that the writer of these codes went into a little more detail than the original writer of the first color codes.

Charge Of Being A Leech On Society (Code Olive)

Discussion: The target is accused of failing to do his duty to society or is accused of being a leech on society.  Examples:

If you don’t have children, medicare and social security will collapse.
We all have to contribute to society.
Women are weaker than men so men must lead women.
How dare you choose to work as little as possible?  You’re no different than a welfare bum.
You’re a leech on society and/or the government.

Response: Men have to freedom to choose how they live their lives.  Men are not required to work just to produce maximum tax revenue for the government or to ensure the stability of government programs.  Since society has become hostile to men, there is no reason for a man to support such a society.  If society wants men to do things for it, then society has a reciprocal duty to men. Duty can not be one sided. It is a logical choice for a man to remove his productive capacity for a society that doesn’t value him and is hostile to him.

The author of these codes goes into a little more detail that the author of the original codes. I’ve never run into this code personally what comes across to me is that this is something that I would hear from traditionalists. I have only run into a someone like this once, and it was a conservative feminist (Yes they are out there!) What it comes down to is this unless you have a gun to my head I have no obligation to oblige any current cultural more that is out there. Especially the ones that revolve around marriage and relationships. There’s no reciprocation in it for me, and there’s certainly not any real advantage.

Threat of No Legacy (Code Bronze)

Discussion: Because marriage has turned into an anti-male institution, many men have knowingly or unknowing decided to go their own way and avoid marriage.  In most cases, this will correspond with never having children.  The (unmarried and childless) target is threatened with a calamity that will befall them when they are older due to their lack of marriage and children.  Examples:

While there’s a risk of divorce in getting married in the next decade, there’s a risk of dying in misery with no one to change your bedpan when you’re elderly.
You will be trapped in a nursing home when you are older with no one to visit you.
You will die alone.
There will be no one to remember you after you are dead.
Your family will die out with you.

Response: There are two issues here, what happens before death and what happens after death.  After death, a man is not going to be around to care about if he has children or if anyone remembers him.  Also, if a man wants to be remembered, he does not need children to accomplish that.  Before death, the issue is one of frailty and long-term care, not “dying alone”.  This shaming language assumes that children will be caregivers for their elderly parents.  There is no guarantee of this.  In rare cases, children may die before their parents.  It’s likely that children will dump their parents into a nursing home instead of providing elderly care themselves.  Women may try to alienate children from their fathers, so men with children could easily be in the same situation as childless men.  A man who falls victim to this type of shaming language is more likely to make a bad marriage decision like marrying a single mother.  In this case, the children aren’t his and are likely not to care about long-term care of an elderly man with who not related to them.  Having children is not a guarantee of anything, and it’s more likely that a man will end up in a situation of getting divorced and having no one to “change his bedpan”.

There is a very strong similarity between this one and code pink. There is no guarantee that even if you have kids or get married that they’ll even be around. This is a more specific and direct threat to your future as opposed to the more vague, less specific code pink. The other part to consider here is that building a legacy doesn’t even have to include having a family. I can say that this path is what I’ve chosen for myself my legacy will be my artistic career and maybe this blog.
