It's Official: The Genie is Out of the Bottle

The development of non-feminist political awareness is ramping up quite nicely. At the same time, it is spreading into the world beyond publicly visible cyberspace. The world of websites and YouTube channels is increasingly NOT "where the action is".  And so, if your knowledge of things pro-male and non-feminist is garnered chiefly from that realm, then I'm afraid you don't really know what's going on. The significant conversations and decisions are happening backstage now, and what you see on the web -- if that is ALL you see -- will give you the same level of information as if you were overhearing just one half of a telephone conversation.

Yes, the numbers are growing, and quickly. And there is a bit of a communication gap between the "new blood", and the old-timers who have been on the scene for years. The new ones are coming in so speedily it is difficult to get them up to speed, and their understanding of various discourses is sometimes half-baked, or embedded with bizarre novelties. One sighs, and chalks it up to "growing pains". A good kind of pain, to be sure, given that it signalizes growth.

Clubs, cells, committees, think-tanks, networks and activism groups are sprouting up like delicious mushrooms all across the landscape. These entities are sometimes aware of each other, and other times not. And while they certainly do make use of cyberspace, they are also moving into boots-on-the-ground mode. They are meeting up, face to face, in taverns and coffee-houses. They are hashing out ideas; they are drafting proposals; they are writing position papers. And in some cases, they are even making plans.

Yes, a social organism is under formation. Or call it a "voltron", if that metaphor suits your fancy. Whatever helps you to visualize and conceptualize things. The takeaway item of understanding here, is that this social organism is going ambient. It is all around, on every side. It is no longer a targetable point.

Oh, and male bonding. Let's not forget about the male bonding. That, too, is happening.

If You Are Anti-Male, You Are Anti-Human

A Couple of Things You'd Do Well to Read

The feminist narrative of male violence in intimate relations is without doubt the crown jewel of feminism's anti-male talking points. If we could somehow arrange a dramatic Watergate-style exposé of the truth which they've covered up for almost 40 years, feminism would suffer a massive credibility hemorrhage. In this connection, the following links are a worthy investment of your reading time. You'll want to go slow and savor the material drop by drop:
