Gender roles and Other Fluff.

It is evident during this disaster of hurricane Harvey and other disasters like it, that gender roles, as much as some people dislike them, are necessary. A picture is going around the Internet right now of a man carrying a woman who is carrying a baby. That is what gender roles are. The man protects the woman and the woman protects the child.

Modern leftists desperately want to erase those roles by telling men that they are dispensable, that they are useless, that they are merely sperm donors; some feminists even go as far as to suggest that men be killed wholesale, with a few kept for breeding purposes. Women, however, need to work and be empowered and be part of the military, etc. Women who stay at home, raising children and providing a stable environment are castigated and treated as enemies to the cause. Children, biologically unable to take care of themselves and make proper decisions, are being tasked with ideas and decisions that shouldn’t concern them for years.

Not Just The Men.

If you’ll notice, The popular leftist groups Antifa and BLM are full of men who are not doing their job. They are full of men who are disenfranchised and emasculated, and they’ve been fed the idea that the system exists solely to keep them down. Thus, they do not have jobs. Getting a job would mean the system wins. Instead they use their time wisely with protesting, closing down areas of universities, and intimidating anyone who disagrees with them.

The men of Antifa have been emasculated by the third wave feminists that they have allied with for years now. They are the classic White Knight. For them, women are on a pedestal. They don’t believe in the establishment, but more than that, they don’t believe in themselves. Terms like “Cis-male” are used as derogatory terms to let them know that by being born with a penis and still identifying with having one as an adult, then they are part of the problem. This is patently untrue, but adolescent boys are taught these things during their teen years via social media. Anyone who stands up to a woman is an enemy.

Their inability to reconcile what they’ve been taught to what they intrinsically are creates a state of cognitive dissonance. In this state, one falls into depression, and is easily manipulated. Their impotent rage is given a focus, and they respond with violence and frustration.

Men are not supposed to be feminists. At best, a man is a distant feminist ally; not taking up the mantle of feminism or buying the T-shirt. A man is simply there to protect the women and children who cannot protect themselves from the men and women who would seek to harm them.

Men are supposed to build and maintain society. Antifa has shown that it only exists to dismantle, disrupt and destroy. Berkeley is a prime example of their propensity for violence and destruction

But The Women.

The women who make up the modern feminist front are brash, vulgar people, unfit for true womanhood. Easily identified by their utter lack of care for their appearance, third-wave feminists are the vanguard for movements like Her Body her Choice, that centers on killing babies at an amazing rate; Healthy At Every Size, which insists that a 400 pound sedentary woman is exactly the same as a Victoria’s Secret model. Antifa member Venus Rosales is an example of third-wave feminism, having no care whatsoever for appearing feminine. Aside from that, she insists on further devaluing herself by acting in fetish porn involving hirsute women. I pity the man she entraps, who finds one of her old videos while trying to relieve himself of his sexual frustration because sleeping with your husband is a big third-wave feminist no-no.

Third-wave feminists are nothing like the feminists who fought for voting rights, and jobs. Those women, who still exist in a quiet minority, treat people around them decently, have good manners, and are educated in something meaningful. Now, they are all permanent adolescents with no plan to grow up. They idolize women like Rihanna and are proud to be called a Bitch. They think gender studies is a viable degree. They will be herding cats in their 40’s.

And The Children, Too.

In recent years, leftists have pushed hard for laws involving children. At first this might sound good, but it is most assuredly not. In Canada, right now, there is a law called the Supporting Children, Youth, and Families Act of 2017. In short, it aims to remove, by force, children from parents who don’t support their chosen gender identity. That means that if a five-year-old boy says, within earshot of anyone, that they are a girl, and the parents don’t immediately bring the child to a psychologist to investigate it further, that the government has the authority to take that child away.

Aside from that, the bill also allows children to be taken away from parents who don’t allow them to believe in the easter bunny or tooth fairy.

Kamala Harris, 32nd Attorney General for California and current Junior Senator for California, wants children to have more say in what happens in the government. This is what the left does. They try to give children the power to change things because they know that rational adults will not accept any of the insane things the left wants.

Word on the street is that Kamala Harris will be running for Prez in 2020. Save the date, folks, it’s gonna be a good show!

They’re Like Animals.

Not all is lost. These fringe groups only account for a thousandth of the population. They, collectively, are a rudderless mass that simply gravitates toward anything that looks controversial, knowing there will be attention. Like a herd of animals moving on to the next food source. Some of them will grow out of it. I did. Some will realize what they’ve done and spend the rest of their life trying to right their wrongs. Some will realize that their need for attention should really be directed at their parents(HINT: This is what happens when you don’t pay attention to your kids), and some will continue to be scumbags because they are narcissists and sociopaths that need weak-minded people to thrive.

I Hate Them.

Not really, though. Just continuing a trope for those willing to read between the lines.

I actually hope that they realize the error of their ways, and choose to warn later generations of the folly of professional protesting. A smart man learns from his mistakes. A wise man learns from the mistakes of others.

Let Millenials be smart. Let Generation Z be wise.

I’m Not With Kap.

In this post, I make the assumption that you already know what’s going on with Colin Kaepernick.

In recent news, there’s been a bit of drama unfolding over the state of Colin Kaepernick’s unemployment. Apparently, no teams will take him. Word is that coaches fear that he will continue to bring his brand of protesting to their field, and possibly break up their locker room chemistry with his opinions.

They fear that they have a lot to lose by hiring him, while not gaining a very valuable player. He’s kind of a hybrid quarterback, rather than an offensive pocket passer. Imagine that. Offensive off the field instead of on it.

Besides that, no one hears him talk about wanting to work. It is instead other people who want him to work. They want someone famous and black(ish) to kneel during the anthem, and get paid to disrespect this country. They want a figurehead to point to when no one will listen.

This one man circus act is indicative of a larger problem with today’s youth, particularly the college age people I’m seeing these days who are unemployed, or not employable. These people are young, but think that they know everything. They are entitled, while they have contributed little.

It is, at its core, a personal issue. These people feel that they can bring their opinions and their drama and their politics to their place of work, and feel that it should be okay to telegraph their issues to everyone they encounter. Moreover, many of them, never having been properly scolded while growing up, now feel that it is an injustice when they are stymied or stifled. Walk into a Whole Foods wearing a Trump hat, and wait for the employee that feels he can lecture you on politics instead of doing his job. These are the same people that would call it a micro aggression when I said ‘his job’.

I hate to be a bearer of ill will, but I hope that Colin Kaepernick does not find a place within an NFL team. I hope he serves as an example to those who feel that they can use their job as a platform for their various idiosyncrasies. It’s time for professionalism to come back.

An Evening in Downtown Phoenix.

I was at the Trump rally in Phoenix last night. I ended up getting there quite late, roughly 7 o’clock. The last few people who were going to get into the convention center were entering. The sidewalks were crowded, with protesters on one side of the street and Trump supporters on the other. The streets themselves were relatively clear, thanks to the phoenix police. Knowing that there was no chance of getting in, I wandered the streets and enjoy the sights and sounds of the throng on both sides of the street. 

Amid cries of “Fuck Trump!”, which has become the standard battle cry for the erudite leftists when they find they have no actual argument, there were a group of BLM members that were playing a rap song on a boombox that also featured the term “fuck Trump”. A highly imaginative group on that side of the street. 

Meanwhile, on the conservative side of the street, there were discussions going on as to what was being said by Donald Trump inside of the building, as many people were streaming it on their phones while they stood on the sidewalk. 

There was one guy wearing a white wife beater that was admonishing the conservatives by naming downtrodden communities like Harlem and Compton. Y’all wouldn’t understand, he said. Y’all don’t know, he said. How little this man does now. I grew up in a place like that. Unlike him, however, I didn’t sit around for decades feeling sorry for myself. I decided that my lot in life was not the hand I was dealt. I, therefore, did not sympathize with this man. 

I saw police on horses wearing riot gear, and police on the ground wearing the same. It was far too hot outside for what they were wearing. And yet, it was necessary, due to the situation that could pop off at any moment. When Trump’s address ended, The attendees, obviously conservatives and Trump supporters, filed past the protesters, with mere feet of space and a thin line of police tape separating the two groups. 

I was prepared for a fight at one point, as a man who had his little girl with him who couldn’t possibly have been above ten years old, was harassed and shouted at by the protesters with a level of profanity that a girl that young should not have to listen to. Her father was obviously perturbed and offended, as he flipped the bird at the group. Two protesters broke off from the rest and began to follow him and his daughter. I followed as well, prepared to put them both on the ground if they attacked the man and his daughter. Eventually they backed off and went back to their group, to resume shouting at the passing conservatives. 

While I wandered, I made sure to listen to the conversations going on. Something that struck me was how everyone on the liberal side of the street seems to be looking for a solution to their problems that didn’t involve actually solving them. They wanted somebody to point the finger at, someone to blame. Not themselves, though. Clearly, nobody can be responsible for their own life and decisions. They were born poor, and raised by single mothers. They can’t possibly have any responsibility in this world.

There were a small group of BLM members that were trying to blame Whitey for every problem they ever had, but they mainly kept to themselves.

There was one point during which a very large and muscular man wearing a trump shirt passed by. The protesters became conspicuously quiet at that moment. They who are so keen on violence to spread their word, but only toward those who are unlikely to hit back. It was very telling. 

Among the people wandering around observing was a man who was dressed in furs and wearing a spirit hood. He appeared to be a centrist, and was trying to let both sides know that they were wrong in opposing each other.

Anyways, once all of the attendees left, and the only people remaining where the conservatives and protesters of various ilk on opposite sides of the street, the police deployed teargas to disburse the crowds. I don’t blame them one bit. I’m sure that thousands of people on either side of the street did not have work to get to in the morning, and would’ve gladly stayed there all night carousing, arguing, and fighting. In that heat, in the clothing they had to wear, with dehydration weighing on them, I fully understand why the police did what they did. I also fully support it. They had families to get home to. They were tired, and had beds they wanted to collapse into. 

In short, the evening was relatively uneventful, compared to what was expected. Phoenix showed that it, as a collective, has a little more class than some of the other cities we’ve seen. I’m proud to live here, and look forward to seeing other cities live up to what I saw last night.

The WbOeRsStT of Us.

The Smartest Guy I Know

Ignore the title! It’s terribly messy due to my ridiculous intelligence! I’m so smart, I couldn’t decide between two highly inspired titles, and thus merged them into a terribly messy witty one. How genius of me!

In recent years, western society has gone from being the best we can be, to changing the rules so we can be the best. Whether it comes to articles on the internet meant to make the below average person feel good about themselves without requiring change, or a person changing themselves so they can beat the odds without improving, people overall are only succeeding in making fools of themselves.

The Best People They Know

I recently read a study which stated that the smarter you are, the more likely you are to swear, or be messy, or be rude. The study suggested that that slobs and social degenerates are, as unlikely as it may seem, the smarter of us. Our superiors. This is a half assed attempt to make people feel better about themselves without requiring improvement. The problem is, this phenomenon does not simply leave itself within the mind of its reader as a warm feeling. These people develop a superiority complex, and decide that their circle of influence ought to be increased. You see them all over the place, usually fighting for things that are not reasonable, but would make them feel better. They want higher minimum wages. They want free schooling. They want free medicine. What’s more, they believe they deserve these things because these things are human rights.

Protip: they’re not human rights. They exist nowhere on the Bill of Rights.

These people believe they are the smarter of us, and thus they refuse to educate themselves even slightly on the matters they profess to feel most strongly about. I do believe this is a direct effect of articles created for these people to read to simply make them feel better about themselves. Have you ever lived or worked with, or simply been around a narcissist? They have a superiority complex, and believe themselves to be the authority at whatever is going on at the time. The current feel good movement is only serving to create more narcissists. This isn’t just annoying, it’s dangerous.

Antifa is a group that is caused by uneducated people feeling moral superiority over others. They are now known for violent protests across the United States. Had they not been bolstered and emboldened by saccharine scripture that told them they are highest on the pecking order, maybe half of them would’ve stayed home where they belong.

Aside from that, the people that support and participate in these movements could do with a few hundred hours at the gym, and a shower.

In Ourselves and Our Homes

It doesn’t just manifest itself in mobs attacking people on the streets, though. It’s in the way we interact with each other. Sarcasm is the rule of the day, and if you’re not chucking a pithy one-liner at someone, you’re slow on the uptake. Double that if you’re not swearing at someone. Now, I’m not gonna get all sanctimonious about swearing, as I engage in it, too. I, however, don’t believe it adds at all to me. I believe that it in fact detracts from me. Especially as a parent.

Have you ever gone to someone’s home and found it in such a state of disarray or even filth that you weren’t comfortable being there? They defend it by saying it’s an organized mess. They’d never be able to find anything if it were clean and neat. Through their own laziness, bad parenting from their parents, and likely a combination of both, they’ve created a habit that they don’t have the mental fortitude to break. Smart people don’t live in squalor. It extends to a person’s car and personal appearance as well.

Be The Change You Want To See

Fallon Fox, a one time male trucker, made headlines during his three year stint in the world of MMA fighting. See, he didn’t fight in the men’s division. He instead changed his gender and fought against women. He left his (female)opponents with permanent injuries while guilelessly and unskillfully manhandling them in the ring. An opponent, Tamikka Brents is quoted as saying, “I’ve fought a lot of women and have never felt the strength that I felt in a fight as I did that night. I can’t answer whether it’s because she was born a man or not because I’m not a doctor. I can only say, I’ve never felt so overpowered ever in my life and I am an abnormally strong female in my own right,” she stated. “Her grip was different, I could usually move around in the clinch against other females but couldn’t move at all in Fox’s clinch…”

Men who are bad at sports shouldn’t be able to use gender reassignment to get around the fact that they are bad at sports. Should I go get a vag sewn on and bring my somewhat-chubby ass to dominate some women in basketball? I’m pretty bad at it.

Insert Genius Segue Here.

If you find yourself reading the aforementioned articles and feeling better about yourself, rather than disgusted by the examples they portray, please look around you and see if you shouldn’t clean up, rather than read another article.

If, however, you do keep a clean home, and feel that politeness and civility are important, maybe another type of article is in order for you. Now, get outta here(seriously, click that link, and you’re outta here).

With love.

Sonder.

In this world of more than 7 billion people, it’s really easy to see the rest of humanity as an anonymous group, while you live your own life. Everyone out there, however, has their own story. Their life is filled with just as much color and brightness and darkness as yours. They may have different problems, but their bag of rocks is exactly the same as yours. Why is it, then, with our technology that allows us to shrink the world down to the size of a screen, that society appears to be more selfish and lonely than ever before?

On this beautiful Saturday morning, maybe we should try to remember to smile and wave at the person across the street. Say hello to your neighbor. It’s time for a sense of community to come back to us as humans.

Charlottesville’s Web: A Primer for the Uninitiated.

In this week that follows the events in Charlottesville, I see things happening that are not good for us; as individuals, or as a country. Blame is being thrown around like a quarter-billion person game of hot potato, except we’re all holding the ball when the timer goes off.

Who’s To Blame?

There is blame toward the white supremacists who started the rally there, and rightly so. In this melting pot of a country, racism has no place. Despite the fact that they obtained a legal permit and were there legally, they were doing something that ultimately hurts the well-being of the country. I do appreciate, though, that they showed their faces, though as to whether that was bravery or stupidity and ignorance, the jury is still out. Being pro-white is not, in itself, a bad thing. It’s not racist. Being anti-any other color, however, is unacceptable. It is racist. Many of these white supremacists have ancestry that contains races they claim to be against. I guess they’re just starting from their current generation.

Opposite these neanderthals were Antifa, a relatively new group that dedicates itself to eradicating fascism. What they don’t do, however, is stop being fascists themselves. It’s as though they read Saul Alinsky and used his writings as instructions, rather than a warning against further acts of fascism. Antifa contains members of all races, but leaves the respectable ones at home. You won’t find Martin Luther King Jr in this bunch, though Malcolm X makes quite a few appearances. They cover their faces and wear hoods in an attempt to not be identified. I’d equate them with the KKK, but even in their hoods, the KKK is still dumb enough to tell you their names.

Antifa have made huge strides over the past couple of years in eradicating free speech. They do this through acts of mob violence toward anyone who doesn’t fully agree with them, and through destruction of property. Anyone remember Bike Lock Guy? He was a college professor who donned a mask and split a man’s head open with a bike lock, then ran away like a coward. Now, he must have had a good reason, right? No, he just saw someone who supported Trump and started swinging. There have been many more violent acts committed by Antifa, but so far, their masks have allowed them to remain anonymous in those instances.

As yet, Antifa has received no blame by the media for the violence that went on in Charlottesville.

A third group was represented, though at this time, nobody seems to know whether they were actually there, or just Antifa members carrying their cry. Shouts of “Black Lives Matter” could be heard during the counterprotest.

Black Lives Matter is a group I will gladly lump in with the KKK. They have fought hard for apartheid, even going so far as to gain ‘black only’ spaces at various college campuses, and even taking over Evergreen college, to varying degrees. Bernie Sanders was shouted down by them, even though he supported them, simply because his skin is white. White allies of BLM have found themselves attacked and ousted because they aren’t black. The founder of Black Lives Matter Toronto, Yusra Khogali believes that white people are genetic defects and need to be wiped out. BLM is a hate group, and is racist, and should be treated just like the KKK.

Aside from that, we have Donald Trump himself. A man who has spent many decades making strides in racial inclusivity, is now labeled a racist, because that’s the word the left uses when they don’t have an argument. He didn’t say anything about Charlottesville for two days following the riots. Anyone can see that he should likely have already been denouncing all sides of the riot before the crowds had even cleared. Instead, he waited, and then delivered a middling response. A smart person knows he’s simply not up to this task. Most people, however, decided that anything short of him going to Charlottesville and shooting a KKK member himself was racist.

Finally, we have the general populace. Celebrities have come out denouncing the KKK, which they should. Some, though, denounced white people specifically. Jennifer Lawrence has come out saying that people need to identify all members of the KKK rally. Just what we need. A bunch of basement-dwelling, blue-balled neckbeard white knights vying for J-Law’s attentions by pointing to anyone they saw at the rally. This can’t possibly go wrong. Oh wait, it already did.

Let’s Point Fingers

It looks like everyone is looking for someone else to blame. The KKK wants to blame those nasty scary black people who are black because of their sins, not because their homelands required melanin in their skin. BLM wants to blame those pasty demonic white people who were invented by Yakub as something for black people to fight against. Antifa wants to blame anyone who isn’t them. Everyone wants to blame Trump.

It looks a whole lot like people trying to blame anyone but themselves. Everyone in the KKK and BLM needs to realize that they, as individuals, decided to be racists and join groups based on persecuting another race. Children aren’t born racist. My (white)kids know that black people are dark because of melanin, and are otherwise the same as white people.

Antifa members need to look at themselves and realize that they have become a militia, and that it is their fault that their protests turn ugly. Meeting words with violence is never okay, and labeling someone as a bigot(often falsely) doesn’t immediately give you the moral high ground.

The Best We Can Be

We, as Americans, need to look to ourselves as the example. Don’t be like Trump. Don’t be like the KKK. Don’t be like BLM. Don’t be like Antifa. Be decent. Be kind. Care for your fellow man. Take the blame when you screw up, realize it’s okay and doesn’t define you, and try to do better.

I realize this sounds trite, but be the best you that you can be. Be the change you want to see in the world.

On Race, Part Deux: Charlottesville’s Web.

There are a lot of people out there blaming President Trump for the race riots happening in Charlottesville. It’s sickening that everyone’s looking for a scapegoat when the real problem is within themselves. Whether white or black, racists filled the streets of Charlottesville.

Did we blame Obama when Micah Johnson gunned down five cops specifically because he hated white people?

No, we didn’t.

Did we blame Obama for all of the BLM fueled riots in Ferguson, Baltimore, Milwaukee, and Charlotte?

No, we didn’t.

Now, I will admit, there was a vocal group of white people that were constantly blaming Obama for things like that, but the rest of us white, black, brown, or other, all knew that those white people were racists.

Why, then, do we have so many black people that are otherwise moderate and nonracist going ahead and blaming Trump and all white people for what happened in Charlottesville? Why is the singer Lorde, among other celebrities, trying to point the finger at an entire race of people? Why is everyone virtue signaling?

We do have a race problem in our country. It is one that did not exist before president Obamas eight years in office. It was not caused by Barack Obama. It was caused by racist black groups, fueled by money and words from the left. It has been proven time and time again that protesters have been bussed in, and that the money to pay for the buses came from organizations run by George Soros, among other people.

The racial divide is not caused by members of the various races, it is caused by the leftist government in their attempts to discredit the right and to put any non-white race down.

Remember, the KKK used to be nothing but Democrats. Planned Parenthood was started by Margaret Sanger, who was a known eugenicist, and wanted the extermination of black people. She knew that abortions would be a great way to do that. The government, specifically the left government, wants to keep black people poor so that they are unhappy and kill each other. Look what happens to black Republicans. They are treated as pariahs by their own communities, but they achieve great success in the long run.

“Really? Bet you can’t name 77 of them.”

Now, you might notice, a lot of these people are not liked by their community. They are called Uncle Toms, and accused of helping the white man.

How about this? White racists are shitty. Black racists are shitty. Mexican racists are shitty. All racists of all colors are shitty.

We have two legs, two arms, walk upright, speak complex languages, bleed red, and we are at the top of the food chain because of how freaking awesome we are. Why are we still stupid enough to think that we are different just because of color?

It’s our ideologies that make us different.

One ideology in particular that I would like to point out is the left. All of it. They are still just as racist as they were. Hell, Hillary Clinton admired a former KKK leader. Her campaign was called “I’m With Her”. How selfish is that? She made it obvious right up front that she was doing this for her, not the country, not for anyone else. Just for her. While Donald Trump, a brilliant businessman, makes a fool of himself on the national stage, he still felt it was his duty to make America great again.

And what do we get in response to make America great again? We get people, on the left of course, saying that America was never great. Excuse me? It was never great? Then leave. We don’t need people like you. We don’t need losers. This is a country where you win or lose on your own merits. It’s called a meritocracy. The left calls it Ableism. Communists, socialists, and anarchists need to get the hell out of here and go to someplace where those views are acceptable. Here, winners win and losers lose. Period.

In the long run, I hope it is the racists of any race, and the people who put money and time into a race war who lose.

The rest of us just need to move forward and leave them behind.
