The MGTOWs are trying their hand at history again. Only this time they aren’t telling stories about brave cavemen taking down huge mammoths to feed their lazy-ass cavewives. This time they’re suggesting that women’s rights are somehow incompatable with civilization itself.
In the Men Going Their Own Way subreddit, a fellow called FlameForgeD2 confidently asserts that
It’s not a coincidence that every civilization before our time has kept women in check and that MGTOW was born in a civilization which doesn’t
Well, no, it’s not a surprise that some backwards men have responded to the increased rights of women by complaining on the internet like a bunch of babies.
But that’s not the point our intrepid historian wants to make: he’s saying that civilizations can’t grow and thrive without putting women down.
Does anyone honestly think that every society ever before just magically decided to “opress” (or so they think) 50+% of it’s population? Or were there reasons for restricting women to go to school and be stay at home housewives and mothers?
There were certainly reasons women were kept down; doing so benefited men, who just happened to have most of the power in society. Now, with some of the central pillers of the patriarchy being chipped away, MGTOWs are crying over the loss of this unearned male privilege.
Of course there were good reasons for such a huge decision, affecting milions. Men and women before covered for each other’s weaknesses. Women in their own way ensured the survival of our species, while men were productive and therefore built and brought to life the very civilization we have now. They made a good team and were productive by covering for each other’s pros and cons.
Apparently, in the mind of FlameForgeD2, the only thing women can do properly is to give birth to babies?
Just how a coleric boss/entrepreneur in a company works well together with a second-in-command melancholic, his right hand. They work together because their strenghts cover for each other’s weaknesses – the entrepreneur is a very diligent and hard working man, while his right hand is the analytical smart thinker.
This is a terrible example, in no way analogous to the alleged differences between men and women, and doesn’t prove much of anything. Got another one?
Oh, crap, he does.
Just how a captain and a first sergeant work well in the military. The captain is the brains of the operation, and the 1SG is the dangerous guy who enforces his decisions by keeping the soldiers below obedient, acting as an bridge between the officer and the soldier.
Weird that none of his examples involve anyone being stripped of their basic human rights.
Oh wait, he’s got still another example.
Just how a carry and support work well in popular MOBA’s. One is weak early but strong later, and the other vice versa – and by playing around each they work well – the support “supports” the carry while he’s weak, and the carry later carries him when the support falls off (his whole team anyway).
MOBA — I had to look it up — stands for “Multiplayer online battle arena.” That’s right. He’s basing his argument for suppressing the rights of women in part on the mechanics of a video game.
But he’s not done yet:
So, what happened since the old system was abolished? The deconstruction of the nuclear family, hypersexuality, degeneracy.
Well, that’s one way of looking at it. Another is to see the last 100 years or so as a period in which half of humanity got to share in the basic human rights the other half took for granted.
Oh, and there’s no “hypersexuality” going on now; people, especially young people, are having less sex than their counterparts were a quarter of a century ago.
The modern feminist narrative is today’s society’s weakness, not it’s strenght.
“Not it’s strenght,” you say?
It is making the western “democracies” more and more decadent and inefficient, and if they continue to honor the modern narrative, they will ultimately succumb to the disciplined nations of the east.
We may be going down the tubes at the moment, but it’s not because of too much democracy, that’s for sure.
The only valiable solution for this madness is for any woke people left to GTOW [Go Their Own Way]. Focus on self defined success and happiness, and don’t help or try to save a society which doesn’t want to help itself and save itself.
Funny how the people talking about “going their own way” always seem to be the people whom society will miss the least.
Somehow the comments inspired by FlameForgeD2’s post managed to be worse than his post.
According to aniani04,
Nature tends to correct itself, every single civilization that tried empowering women ended up going to shit, and we’re witnessing the death of a great civilization just because they didn’t keep their bitches in check… Fascinating!
“Letting women vote made the end inevitable,” declares PipBoyTinkerer.
And then there’s Intp-A1, who seems to think the only solution is like something out of The Handmaid’s Tale.
[S]ociety will ultimately collapse without a sustainable birth rate in the long run. Women must be forced to perform their biological duties, it’s as simple as that. That forcing mechanism will either be before the collapse by men asserting themselves or after a collapse when society is picking up the pieces and wondering what went wrong. Either way it will happen, because the current state of affairs is simply unsustainable.
Dream on, dude.
Remind me again why the MGTOW subreddit hasn’t been banned for hate speech already?
