COTW – Men are ultimately responsible for women invading our male institutions.

Comment of the week comes from long term commenter Allen on the Scouts Australia article.

Fortunately I was able to teach my boys myself about the outdoors, and they got more out of it as well. I still laugh about one aspect of it though, my wife’s input. Before the first trip into the wilderness my wife said only one thing about it to me. “Bring my boys home safely or come home being carried.” Quite Spartan of the woman. The great thing about the wilderness is that boys learn that it is indifferent to them and might actually kill them if they are unwary. Good prep for life.

People who want girls to be admitted to Scouting seem to be completely ignorant and indifferent to the fact that male bonding comes through shared hardship, and competitiveness. I don’t think they have the slightest clue that male bonding is one of the very reasons our species survives the crucible of evolution.

The second paragraph is the part that I think is really important.

That women are completely indifferent to how males bond is not surprising. Women in general approach things from an emotional viewpoint, and their subconscious use of this tactic is not bad; it just is. However, what is disappointing is that men have not recognised this propensity and effectively countered it.

Or perhaps it would be far more accurate to say that men once recognised and countered women in this manner but then they began to fail in this regard. Scouts Australia began admitting girls in 1971, so the failure has been going on for a very long time indeed.

So what changed? What caused men to begin failing so badly all around the same few years? In my mind it was the invention of the contraceptive pill that was the beginning of the great failing. The pill exploded the sexual market, and as such men were not competing anymore to find a wife; they were competing to get laid. This is a crucial distinction because men, at least back then, only got married once. Whereas men can get laid many times if they choose to put some effort into it.

This radical distortion of the sexual market caused men to outwardly compete in areas that before were not even seen as being applicable. So the entryism of women into male dominated areas such as the Boy Scouts was endemic of men competing for women’s sexual favors. This coincidentally was also the period when modern blue pill beta male behaviors began to overtly manifest themselves.

Men are ultimately responsible for letting women into areas in which they have no business being present, and as such as men we must hold ourselves responsible. This is a very good thing because ultimately it means that we have the power to reverse this. If the tide of women infesting our male institutions was due to some outside influence over which we had no control then we would truly be doomed.

But it is not. We have the potential power to expel women from these important male institutions. Or at the very least to learn from the experience and set up new ones with iron clad rules to prevent any future intrusion.

It is our duty as men to know and understand that male bonding comes through hardship and competitiveness as Allen states. It is thus our further duty as men to ensure that avenues for such bonding are created, managed, and protected for the young boys of today. And it is our final duty to ensure that these young men and boys are also educated in the very real dangers of letting these institutions lapse and decay to the disadvantage of their future sons.

Each generation inherits the institutions and ceremonies of not just the preceding generation but of all preceding generations. The Baby Boomers failed very badly in this regard. But I am not quick to judge them because I very much doubt that they had the capacity to recognise just how deadly the introduction of the pill really was.

But 50 years later we are able to recognise how it completely changed the social landscape. It is thus our responsibility to repair the damage done and ensure that protections are put in place for it to never happen again.

    Put another way, women do what men make them do – or allow them to do. Having power means having responsibility and we are responsible for what we allow. It is no coincidence that “strong women” all this time later are still clamoring for “empowerment.” Empowerment is really just a word that means, “I have no power of my own and can’t get it on my own, so I want you to give me some.”

    The same relationship exists between whites and non-whites. The bad behavior you see among them is entirely due to the fact that whites decided a few decades ago, to abandon their traditional role as leader and disciplinarian in favor of the fantasy of equality.

    Power either rules… or is responsible for the results of failure to rule.

    Or this is why societies based on reason and the scientific process collapse. They are unable to refrain from making bad decisions; especially when (((someone))) can profit from these bad decisions.

      Can we leave the anti-semetic shit out of it? If that’s all you’ve got to say, then you have nothing to say.

      • BWV

        That’s like asking whether Sweden can “Leave all the Muslim shit out of” a discussion of their rape problem.

        Just in case that’s not clear… the answer is no.

    A perhaps overlooked venue for male bonding, especially for young boys, is the back woods hunt camp. I first took my son hunting when he was 5 years old. He had been pestering me relentlessly about wanting to come along and so I convinced my wife that I would be very careful and make sure he came back safe and sound.

    Needless to say the kid loved it. Here he was, 5 yeas old and among men. While he was too little to handle a firearm, I gave him a small pair of binoculars and had him watch one trail while I watched the other. Fortunately there was enough non game animal life around to keep him interested. He was very quiet and knew to speak in whispers so as to not disturb the buck that eventually came into view.

    Years later when he shot his first buck, he was so proud of himself and proud of his ability to have provided “meat for the family”. You can’t imagine the joy that the ability to provide for your family in the most fundamental of ways can bring.

    The other aspect of taking a boy hunting (and buying him his own rifle) is that I used firearms as a means to keep my son out of trouble. I told him in no uncertain terms that if there was any trouble with the police then the firearms would be the first things to go, It was a responsibility that he honoured and I’m glad to say that he turned out to be a fine young man. He’s now married with children of his own. All daughters but a joy nevertheless.

    The other point that I would like to make is that I really wanted my wife to join me and share in the experience, but after hearing many tales of hanging your rear end over a log in sub-zero weather and wiping your behind with leaves, she was not all that keen and never did join me for an adventure in the wild.

      Your story reminded me of taking my nephews duck hunting many years ago. I explained to them before we left that duck hunting isn’t really about shooting ducks. Instead it’s about 4 things:

      1) Getting out on the water early in the morning (or late in the evening).
      2) The enjoyment (yours and his) of working the dog.
      3) The moment when the ducks spot you, flare their wings, and fly away amazingly fast.
      4) Physical discomfort.

      Once we’d been through that, I told them, “If you actually shoot a few ducks, that’s icing on the cake.” I think they got it and we ended up hitting all the marks.

    The contaceptive pill wasn’t the root cause of the sexual revolution, just a milestone. The 1920s saw an earlier,more limited expansion of sex,drugs and Jazz, with 800,000 backroom abortions a year to deal with unwanted pregnancies. The Pill was developed and approved by men to give women more freedom. Why?

    Legal reforms to give women more freedom and power began in the early 19th century and gradually gained momentum. It all really started with the Romantic movement, conceptualising women as angels.

    But the fundemental root cause is the innate male tendancy to stab other men in the back if there is a chance to get laid. Changing times lead progressive men to advocate for female empowerment and abandon traditional structures in the hope that leading the charge would win them influence and pussy.

    In an earlier time, those men may have made war on a neighbouring tribe, killed the men and carried off the women. Politics is the continuation of war by other means.

    Men kill each other to get women. That is the human condition.

    Civilisation shifts this struggle into the realm of money, fame and politics.

    Rolling back society to the 1950s solves nothing, the men of the 1950s created the sexual revolution. Returning to the paternal custody laws of 1810 solves nothing, the men of 1810 set in motion the custody laws we have today. Men had all the power, and they gave it away. Roll back to 1800 and they will do it again, for female approval,for their daughters, for the chance to get laid.

    Men will kill each other to get women. That is your root cause. How do you change that?

    • Chris

      I am not saying the change you are talking about is impossible. I am just saying you need to deal with male nature. Define the problem accurately. What would it actually take to create a world where men are no longer willing to kill each other to get laid? As long as that tendency is left unaddressed you can expect other men to gut anything you build.

    • The testosterone that God – the real God, not Allah – endowed us with provides us with the drive to innovate, create and procreate; it’s the drive that Feminists hate and envy us for. Unfortunately, it also instills in us the desire for intimacy with women, and that more often than not serves as a stumbling block in terms of us being able to collectively stand up and say “no” when we need to. That’s why I tend to shy away from Mens’ Rights. There simply aren’t enough.

      The 19th Amendment was a costly mistake. As Black Pigeon Speaks said in his first video, if women are given a voice in matters of national security, the country will inevitably collapse.

    Tired of hearing about women. So tired.
    They are over rated. Rather read a good book.
    I certainly wouldn’t kill another living person to get to a female, as some here have commented.
    Women are the root cause of the downfall of civilisation.
    Introduction of the pill encouraged female promiscuity…and they are well and truly slutty thots these days.
    Adam, can you please write an article on cars or bikes or boats or guns or flat earth…….anything except women ?

    • Adam

      Hans, I feel ya. I’ll put up something along those lines.

    1. Shared hardship? Where is there *any* hardship in most modern suburban lives? That’s part of the reason why so much navel-gazing and the culture of self-declared victimhood is tolerated. Prosperity is as much a root of these changes as was birth control – and in fact the post-war boom allowed attitudes to “family planning” to change.

    2. The industrial revolution began the process that separated male brawn from species survival. It also accelerated specialization – and then urbanization. It’s telling that “prepper” and “back to basics” sentiment is often intertwined with conservative political thought nowadays.

    3. New institutions? How exactly are you going to roll back new attitudes to women that began with the Suffrage movement – and related changes in the relationship between private citizens and public do-gooders?

    I’ll be happy to do the easy part and found an alternative scout troop – and leave you to get us back to a culture where women accept men saying “don’t worry your pretty head” about anything – or give ANY admission that the female cognitive approach is qualitatively different and in need of complementary male judgement – and control (!!!). Good luck re-closing that Pandora’s box – while an army of Pandoras opposes you.

    • Adam

      Sounds like you’re scared of girls.

      • ben david

        So what’s the plan?
        You can start by explaining how the ball-busting “human resources sensitivity training” ethos will be removed from modern corporate culture – restoring a traditionally male arena.

        Right now conservative and traditional-minded men have gone underground rather than engaging.
