America: Land of Soulless Hamster Wusses

Street harassment: The engine of civilization

Here’s a little screed, originally from happierabroad.com, that’s been making the rounds of the manosphere lately. The author, anonymous, describes himself as “an Arab, who has lived and travelled all over the world and is a keen observer of society and people.” The aim of his writing? To let those of us in the West know just how disappointed he is with all of us.  Especially the wussies and bitches.

Meeting Westerners, one of the things I noticed was how insecure and de-masculinized they seemed to me; compared to myself and the male-dominated, testosterone-driven culture of my land.

Using my own keen sense of observation, I have noticed just an eensy weensy bit of misogyny in his writings.  You may notice it as well.

On the internet, most Americans seemed to act like little bitches, little girls brought up in a Feminist perversion of nature.

Well, I don’t know about that whole “perversion of nature” thing, but I have to say the first half of that sentence is pretty spot-on.

It was only after coming to the U.S. and studying here that all the pieces came together – a fascinating look at a dysfunctional man-hating civilization that is the polar opposite of my own culture, and will eventually lead to the collapse of Western civilization.

Uh oh.

Where I come from, men walk proud and rule the streets and testosterone runs in the air; and strong patriarchal foundations of family and the father as ruler of the household. Men harass and aggressively follow women – it is unapologetically a man’s world.

That’s what makes a civilization great: the harassment of women.

Just remember this, men, when you lean out of your car window to yell “Nice ass………WHORE!!!!!!!!!” at passing joggers of the female persuasion, you’re doing your bit to uphold our most noble traditions and help to fend off the forces of darkness.

In the U.S., Feminism has so corrupted the society to it’s core, damaged the very concept of family and the family unit and the father’s role, that society as a whole is like some bizarre alien planet – where men are bland, lack personality, are anti-social, gossipy, soul-less. Men are weak and insecure deep inside … women have all the power and American men seem clueless as to how bizarre the male-female dynamic has become.

How bizzare?

In the workplace, Americans are Automatons, like soul-less hamsters on a wheel. Fake conversations, no intellectualism, no interest in other countries, peoples, or history.

Do soul-less hamsters act differently than soulful ones? How can you tell the difference? Do the ones without souls poop more?

Also, terrible social and people skills – at least in California. Most people communicate via twitter and Facebook, even though most of the people on their Facebook live in the same city and a phone call away.

Really? You’re complaining about Facebook? Sorry, that’s just lazy and trite. You’re like the Dane Cook of reactionary misogynist cultural critics.

People are vacuous, shallow, superficial, suggestible. Men raised here are fake, insecure, lack personality, they seem to have “issues.” Women are confused and messed up ..

Wait, what’s that? Is that the dreaded MRA two-period punctuation mark? NOT AGAIN!

Oops. He’s still talking:

You let your women take control, and your society will unravel- it will make your men weak, and destroy your society to it’s core. The patriarchy is a male conceived and enforced institution that was imposed on females, because men, and only men understand well the long-term impacts of civilization and harnessing male energies into productive family units and a stable society …. civilization itself is a result of patriarchy.

You know, if you’re really into harnessing your male energies, you can buy the necessary equipment right here!

To sum if up, it seems to be that the whole country is phitzoprhenic [sic], like a Jekyll and Hyde monstrosity. There is no community, no camaredie, no soul, men and women are willing servants to their corporate masters and slaves to materialism and superficiality; and incredibly conformist, reserved, and politically correct to the point of totalitinarism.

“Conformist?” So now he’s turned into a high school goth?

Come on, dude, if you want to be a social critic, you’re going to need to work a little harder than that. Take a tip or two from this, er, duck:

I just got back from facilitating a forum on “Trans bodies, Trans selves” which is a new book project that is being worked on as we speak :] When completed, it’s going to be a resource guide for trans ppl, counselors, and families and allies, So far the topics it’s going to cover are:

Our May Selves

I want to promote the project b/c it’s a great idea and they need as much input as they get! Esp imo, for ppl who traditionally aren’t covered by the trans* umbrella, but who identify as trans, or who want to… cuz that’s the ppl the book also wants to include :3 And I think it’s V important to include! Also I’m putting it here (hopefully it’s ok w/ David) b/c I know there are many trans* ppl here and if ppl dunno about it, now you do and I think the more voices the better! 😀

There are many things you can do to be involved if you want to be involved!

If you want to help organize an event (like the forum above, where ppl can actually attend and give their own experiences) or find out where one is taking place in your area, email naomi@transbodies.com (keep in mind there is abs no funding for this book or project)

Or visit

http://www.transbodies.com

to submit a short piece to Trans Bodies, Trans selves, about yourself, or nething you want to add to the project, challenges you feel from society as a trans person, things you would like them to discuss, stuff about law, or family, or medical issues, intersectionality, etc etc 😀

Also take the survey! Thousands have filled it out… you should too! 😀

And spread it around if you want to. I think the more ppl who participate, the better the guide will ultimately be, b/c the more diversity of experiences and ideas they’ll have to work from 🙂

Remember, punching a bear in the face is not feminine. The correct behavior when encountering a bear is to cower and scream until a man rescues you and/or you get mauled.

Someone’s… trying to insult a nerd by calling them a nerd? You’ll have to do a lot better than that, buddy, because Nerd is in front of feminist in my view of myself.

What next, ya gonna make fun of my playing video games? I have 40 hours over the last week according to just Steam. Ooo, how about my geeky hobbies, like reading and making submissions for Fuck Yeah History Major Heraldic Beast? Seriously, I’m a proud nerd. You can’t insult me, or almost any other nerd, just by calling me a nerd. It’s a wonderful world out there for us, a different but still fascinating one compared to non-nerds. Being different from the generic you isn’t an insult. And being different from you, Ion, in particular? Fuckin’ fantastic, it is.

I know feminist man-haters are not very bright, but really.

This was the “challenge”:

“One of these days, these “feminism is destroying civilization!” ranters should get around to explaining why the most feminist-influenced countries are, generally speaking, the most powerful and prosperous ones.”

I provided an explanation for why feminist-influenced countries are powerful and prosperous – because they were powerful and prosperous before feminism.

That’s all I was tasked to do.

It’s really not that hard to understand, folks. Please do try.

Or perhaps you’d like to replace “feminism” in my statement with other amusing words, without actually taking any time to investigate why feminism is self-defeating and will lead to the collapse of civilization, something that has been discussed numerous times throughout the manosphere. And if you ever did, you’d feign the inability to understand, and you’d probably make a little joke of it with your man-hating brethren here, too.

Did your stupidity come before or after your hatred?

And, oh yes, I realize your next comment is one of projection- claiming that I should be asking myself this very question. That’s because I understand you. I know you are creatures blinded by hatred. You’re not special or unique; you’re characteristic of a dying civilization, and you will be recognized as such in the future. It shall be your legacy.

I know trolls are twice as dumb as shit, but let’s try this anyway.

Nobody thus far has been able to show us any kind of significant decline in the power and prosperity of nations due to feminism. Sure, there’s a lot of weak-ass panicky crap about THE RISING THREAT OF ISLAM that supposedly feminized Europe can’t handle (ZOMG, 2% of the population! Sharia law is just around the corner! EUROPEAN CALIPHATE!!1!) but when you look down at the bottom of the ladder as far as prosperity and power, that’s where you find the countries where women are treated like the anti-feminist dolts keep telling us they deserve to be treated.

To be honest, I think the real challenge was to see how many hoops you nitwits would jump through trying to prove something so ridiculous. And it looks like you couldn’t even manage one without making a complete balls-up of it.

Weren’t you the one who kept calling me “internet tough guy” a while back? Oh, irony. Congrats on all the guns you own… I’m sure they’re just a hobby and in no way an expression of repressed anger and/or compensating for something…

I will, however, admit one thing. Watching you blundering around, ineffectually trying to score hits on me and everyone else here is most entertaining, please continue.

Watching you (and Ami, now that I think about it) write post after post about how I’m not affecting you at all is most entertaining, please continue.

I know this wasn’t addressed at me, but wasn’t feminism a big part of communism, with all the leftist Marxist ideology? Equality and all that? Those countries didn’t do too well…

Aside from that, hm… dissolution of the nuclear family and family values, women shamed for wanting to be homemakers/raise a family and told they MUST have a career (which apparently leads to increased stress and decreased happiness, go figure), dissolution of traditional gender roles leading to confused, angry people, political correctness telling us that any lifestyle is permissible and we’re wrong to criticize anybody… those are the things coming to mind for now.

Holly Pervocracy
9 years ago

Even if “somebody’s gotta be the homemaker” was a thing beyond question (and it’s really not), why’s it gotta be the woman?

Anyway, this whole idea of a nuclear family where Pa works and Ma tends children and house is largely a myth, or at least restricted to a small proportion of the population. My grandma worked and my great-grandma worked; they just had to raise kids also. (Often by getting babysitting from their grandmothers/aunts/friends; so much for the “nuclear family.”) Grandpa and great-grandpa weren’t rich enough to support the whole family themselves. If you have a problem with women working outside the home, blame the Industrial Revolution.

Feminism didn’t invent the idea of women working; it invented the idea of women being equally valued for their work.

Whereas when someone who opposes you does the same thing, he or she can immediately count on roughly a dozen replies in the vein of “ooh, I guess because it happened to you, it must be universal, huh?

“They kicked Nazi Germany’s ass.”

I’d like to say it’s rare to read such a horrific left propaganda piece but it’s pretty standard these days. First off, Germany had literally won WW I before american involvement. The reasons for Germany attacking for WW I were completely disreguarded. Germany offered status quo antebellum after having been so completely dominant. The traitor Woodrow Wilson after swearing to keep the US neutral attacked after the sinking of the Lusitania. Any fool can see sending a pleasure cruise ship into a war zone was a planned sacrifice in order to get the US involved.

Germany was being systematically economically destroyed by the war reparations forced upon them plus sanctions on production and what can only be considered an embargo on German goods. Germany was literally relegated to indentured servitude by the Treaty of Versailles. There are pictures of people burning money to heat their homes because it was cheaper to burn money rather than wood.

Entrance into both world wars by the US were initiated by leftists. Woodrow Wilson and FDR. The leftist who wrote this pathetic excuse for an article claims FDR to be, “the greatest president in United States history.” FDR was a communist thru and thru; Fireside communism with FDR. Every policy he enacted was straight out of the Soviet handbook.

This leftist moron claims, “Hitler used security arguments to take away the German peoples rights.” Well stop off at an airport lefties and see your security forces. Everyone one of you fools cry out for more Government, more security, more laws. Please take my freedom Big Daddy, I’m a braindead leftist.

This braindead, non-thinking leftist turd goes on to yammer about global warming due to carbon emmisions as if it’s a fact. By taking core samples from ice, temperature and carbon content is determined and there is absolutely no correlation between the two. In fact high carbon content correlates to slightly lower temperatures. Most of the scientists who were on the investifation commitee refute any correlation yet their names are listed as participating while failing to note they emphatically disagree.

What is it about leftists being afraid of/discounting any and all of facts?

By the way Ozy, how do traditionally masculine men and feminine women fit into your all-inclusive, tolerant society? Or are they not progressive enough to have a place in it?

There certainly were women who complained about it in the feminist movement Ion-because they were tired of being told that is all they could ever aspire to.

You never pay attention to that part of the problem do you?

Femmephobia in the feminist movement is a problem, Ion. Your point?

Masculine men and feminine women are perfectly free to be masculine men and feminine women. I don’t think you’re understanding my point, sir. People should be free to do whatever they want, from MMA to knitting, without social opprobrium, as long as it does not harm themselves or others.

“I know this wasn’t addressed at me, but wasn’t feminism a big part of communism, with all the leftist Marxist ideology? Equality and all that? Those countries didn’t do too well…”

Communism gave women comparable opportunities at education, professional involvement, and seeking redress against abuse in court, in countries where it used to be common for husbands to beat their wives to death with little, if any, threat of retribution. Power sharing? Not so much, the overwhelming majority of government officials were still men. As for whether or not those countries did well? Let’s take Russia. Back in the blessed days when women occupied the same status as living room furniture, it was an agrarian, mostly feudal country with a mind-mindbogglingly high level of illiteracy, poor public health and abject poverty. Under communism, it became a highly industrialized superpower, with an educated population capable of making their country a major player in world politics. And though the regime ultimately didn’t do too well, Russia is still a very important and technologically developed country today. I don’t like communist regimes and am always ready to recognize their flaws and shortcomings — but I scoff at people approaching this issue in a quasi-religious, ideological manner. Treating women like cattle doesn’t do society any good; and please keep in mind, “society” isn’t just composed of men. Women are half of society, and being treated like cattle isn’t good for women, so right there, you have half of society whose situation in a patriarchal system is downright abysmal. And it’s not good for the other half of society, either — because oppressing women under-utilizes individuals’ potential.

“Aside from that, hm… dissolution of the nuclear family and family values, women shamed for wanting to be homemakers/raise a family and told they MUST have a career (which apparently leads to increased stress and decreased happiness, go figure), dissolution of traditional gender roles leading to confused, angry people, political correctness telling us that any lifestyle is permissible and we’re wrong to criticize anybody… those are the things coming to mind for now.”

Wow, so much to unpack here. First of all, women in a patriarchal society are shamed for being homemakers and raising a family; it’s part of generally shaming them for being women. Traditionalist men routinely say that their homemaking wives “don’t work”. Devaluing women’s labor is a cherished part of the patriarchal tradition. I’ll grant you that there is a proportion of feminists who also shame women for being homemakers — but the crucial difference here is that women now have a choice. For a traditionalist, however, a woman MUST be a homemaker, and she must be shamed for it, too.

Second, anti-feminists say this all the time, but there is absolutely no evidence that having a career leads to increased stress and “decreased happiness”. All the “studies” I’ve heard of that supposedly prove this contention come out of heavily biased institutions that have a political agenda. There are numerous problems with this. Preliminarily, the goal of feminism isn’t to increase women’s personal happiness, but to provide women with personal autonomy, agency and choices, as well as to make the harassment and assault of women by men less socially acceptable. Moreover, the “studies” I mentioned do not define “happiness”, and make no adjustment for the fact that women who are utterly dependent on their husbands are under a tremendous amount of pressure to characterize themselves as “happy”, even in an anonymous study. (I’ve known a self-described happy homemaker; she shoveled so much Valium in her mouth, her prescription had to be refilled every couple of days. Yeah, yeah, yeah, it’s an anecdote; still, it surprised me how stereotypical this was of a housewife’s “happiness”) Women who lack agency within the family usually come to believe they lack agency generally and are likely to be afraid that the people who perform this “study” will put their husbands on notice if they express any dissatisfaction with their lives.

Third — political correctness, srsly? You mean, in patriarchal societies, there is more than one lifestyle that’s permissible and it’s considered wrong to criticize people who don’t conform? Yeah, I guess that’s why women who have the temerity to venture outside the home in that utopia get harassed so much

“in countries where it used to be common for husbands to beat their wives to death with little, if any, threat of retribution.”

Your name says it all, I am indeed amused. Heres a common conversation where husbands commonly beat their wives to death. “Hey Bill wheres your wife?” “Oh, I beat her to death Sam.” “Yea me too, wierd but I’ve noticed a distinct shortage of women.”
————————————
“Treating women like cattle doesn’t do society any good; and please keep in mind, “society” isn’t just composed of men.”

Men would never beat their livestock to death, thats cruel and unusual punishment. Cattle had a purpose.
———————————–
“Devaluing women’s labor is a cherished part of the patriarchal tradition.”

So true, so true. Aren’t you just sick of how on this site as well as the MSM men are praised for all their accomplishments while women are constantly devalued. Damn it Dave and the rest of you commentors, would it kill ya to show women a little appreciation once in a while?
————————————
“Women who lack agency within the family usually come to believe they lack agency generally and are likely to be afraid that the people who perform this “study” will put their husbands on notice if they express any dissatisfaction with their lives.”

Horrible, horrible. Women lacking agency in the home, socially, in education and the workplace. Those damned patriarchal agency thieves. What we need is more womens agencies to give women agency.
—————————————-
“Yeah, I guess that’s why women who have the temerity to venture outside the home in that utopia get harassed so much”

Temerity is just one more agency in women the patriarchy usurps and ruthlessly crushes. How long will the State continue to show favoritism to men while hobbling women at every opportunity? OH why, oh why must women be eternal victims?

Quite a few of us here are ‘traditionally masculine men and feminine women’, including me, and no one here, including Ozy, has ever complained about it in the slightest. Do you really think that inclusive = excluding anyone ‘traditional’? Or are you just being deliberately obtuse?

It’s kinda like “if we don’t teach kids that homosexuality is wrong and unnatural, then they’ll all become gay!” xD

I was actually taught completely the opposite of female socialization (at least in terms of external overt pressure, the media and subtle stuff I still pick up like any other girl xD ) w/ completely the opposite social pressures pushing on me and I’m still like.. y’know.. me 😀 Super femme! xD (to the point that ppl didn’t even believe I was reaaalllll xD when I was comics blogging) so presumably in Ozy’s world I’d be the same too, except it’d have happened earlier, I’d be happier, and I would have been saved a lot of abuse and pain 🙁 ( 🙂 )

I fail to see the negatives :3

On the OP! 😀

Since he’s a well travelled keen observer of stuff, I now want to take him on tours xD And have him observe other societies or countries or even regions in those countries :3 It could make a great book! 😀 Or documentary xD

Oh man, Ion, just when I think you can’t get any funnier, you go and prove me wrong. Yep, you got me all right, me making fun of the dumbass stereotype of lefties and feminists as goofy hippie pacifists is totally the same as your “you wouldn’t say that shit to my face, you wouldn’t dare” routine.

And since when did you become an illogically anti-gun person? “Expression of repressed anger”? “Compensating for something”? That’s the same fact-devoid, emotionally driven empty reasoning I see coming from the people who seem to think every gun has evil installed in it in the factory before it gets boxed up. That’s the kind of shit that’s no better than the “tacticool” armchair warriors who think their fantasy solutions to situations like Breivik’s rampage are actually reasonable. But I know you’re not really taking that position, you’re just making another tedious attempt to make me blow up and lose it. You know, like you keep doing.

Also, love the “You’re posting at me! I’M WINNING!!!” thing. Because that obviously doesn’t apply to you at all and the only reason you keep slinging weak insults in my direction is because you’re driven by a higher calling.

So what happens when I stop acknowledging your existence entirely? I’m betting you still claim you’ve won, but I think I’m going to try it anyway. It’ll be fun watching you try and bait me into responding to anything. Cheers. 🙂
