Take your White Ribbon pledge and shove it.

I flew up to Brisbane this week for a work meeting which went well. I caught a Virgin Australia flight up there and I was leafing through the in-flight magazine for want of anything better to do. Desperate to read anything of interest in its putrid pages I turned to the editorial. It was written by the CEO and MD John Borghetti and concerned the White Ribbon event which was held a few days ago. I hadn’t heard about it before but the editorial soon got my interest and not in a good way.

The White Ribbon event is the world’s largest movement of men working to end men’s violence against women, promote gender equality, healthy relationships, and a new vision of masculinity.

Got that? A new vision of masculinity. While I detest terms such as toxic masculinity, it is the far more insidious terms such as positive masculinity which really get up my goat. The term implies that masculinity in of itself is negative. And here we have ‘a new vision of masculinity’. Who has this vision and where did they get it from? Even more importantly, where do they wish for it to go?

I looked up the event’s Australian website to see just how bad it was. From their diversity and inclusion page:

Australia is one of the most diverse countries in the world. Diversity and inclusion is an important part of Australian way of life.

Here we have progressive ideology stated as bare fact. Mind you, the fact that they have such a thing as a diversity and inclusion page tells you everything that you need to know.

I had been wondering what the insipid people on my Facebook feed had been banging on about the last few days. Apparently this White Ribbon lot have a pledge. And they want men to publicly take the pledge. The Virgin CEO also exhorted men to take the pledge. To make it easier Virgin had printed the pledge on the back of their boarding passes. Here is the pledge in all its glory:

I will stand up, speak out and act to prevent men’s violence against women. This is my oath.

Presumably you cannot do this if you’re sitting down which is a mite tricky when traveling on a plane. It all sounds so nice and good and wholesome doesn’t it. What’s the harm in taking this pledge? You’d have to be a really bad person not to take this pledge. Why, you’d have to be someone who perpetrates violence against women! Sacre bleu!

Well consider me someone who sticks their pledge as far up their backsides as humanly possible. In other words, take your pledge and shove it. This pledge and event is not about ending male violence against women. It is about getting men to fall into line and accept that as men they are inherently bad unless they publicly convert to renouncing their vileness. And it is about further pedestalizing women as the keepers of wisdom and inherent goodness and of them being above reproach.

Any man who publicly takes this pledge is at best a dupe. A useful idiot. Any man who publicly advocates for men to follow this tune is a Quisling to men and masculinity. John Borghetti is a prime example of this.

We need a term to describe men who are so quick to sell out their own biological sex in the vain hope that by virtue signaling their supposed goodness then they just might get lucky with the quirky progressive chick with blue hair. Cuckservative has been widely adopted for conservatives who sold out their core base so as to further their own personal interests. This accurately describes men such as the Virgin Australia CEO. All we need is a slightly different version so as to distinguish the two groups.

I vote for the simple term cuck. Only cucks would sign this pledge. Only cucks would debase their own masculinity in an attempt to curry favor with the lunatic left. And as for defining a new vision of masculinity, well we’re certainly not going to leave that up to a bunch of cucks. Men who never knew what masculinity was to begin with.

UPDATE: We have improved and refined the term. At this point it is now, cuckvirgin.

    “We need a term to describe men who are so quick to sell out their own biological sex in the vain hope that by virtue signaling their supposed goodness then they just might get lucky with the quirky progressive chick with blue hair.”
    How about “Toad Sexers”?
    That used to be a common expression at MIT where the women were reputed to be so ugly that the only way you could tell that they were female was to have sex with them (apparently toads can’t be distinguished sexually any other way).
    Progressive chicks often look like toads..

      I’ve added that to the list.

      However, that doesn’t really adequately describe someone like the Virgin CEO whom I presume is not in fact married to a toad but probably has a looker who makes him do the vacuuming on days off.

  2. How about Endos? Short for endocannibals, those who eat members of their own community usually in the form of a ritual.

    • Adam

      Added to the list but it’s not that catchy is it.

      • No it’s not. If you have to explain it then it’s not catchy. It’s a tough one. How do you capture the idea that someone has cut off their own cojones and wants you to join him?

  3. Sjonnar

    So a company named “virgin” wants men to stand up and publicly renounce their masculinity? The fuckers are practically trolling themselves.

    And you want suggestions for a simple term to refer to these men? Does not compute.

    • Adam

      Virgin is just one of 80 Australian companies that have signed up to this progressive lunacy.

      • Sjonnar

        And how many of the men therein are likely to have ever gotten laid? Still gotta go with “virgin” here, boss.

      • Sjonnar

        Sure, why not. Maybe without the hyphen though? Cuckvirgins?

  4. Australia is one of the most diverse countries in the world.

    That’s not how I found it. I thought overbearing nanny-statism and political correctness were shoving it fast in the direction of uniform, dull conformity. I suspect they mean that Australia is a place with lots of brown folk mixed in with the whites.

    • Adam

      Yeah, the second one. Because “diversity is our strength!”

  5. I’d like to see the long list of women this Virgin CEO used his position, power, money, and influence to seduce before I consider taking the pledge.

    Maybe the appropriate response is to come up with a man pledge that’s written and defined by men instead of feminists?

    • Adam

      Maybe it’s better to avoid any organisation that requires you to make a pledge.

  6. StarTripper

    I read the pledge and thought, “Well, that’s why I have a concealed carry permit and carry everyday.”

  7. Jim Christian

    Just look at all those pussies at the Hillary victory party surrounded by crying chicks and I bet not 1% of them got laid. The women hugging the women, not a one hugging a man. A target rich environment and the men, a roomful of faggots. No wonder left-wing women hate men.
