Book:

Men on Strike: Why Men Are Boycotting Marriage, Fatherhood, and the American Dream - and Why It Matters

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1594036756/r...

Publication Date: June 18, 2013
American society has become anti-male. Men are sensing the backlash and are consciously and unconsciously going “on strike.” They are dropping out of college, leaving the workforce and avoiding marriage and fatherhood at alarming rates. The trend is so pronounced that a number of books have been written about this “man-child” phenomenon, concluding that men have taken a vacation from responsibility simply because they can. But why should men participate in a system that seems to be increasingly stacked against them?

As Men on Strike demonstrates, men aren’t dropping out because they are stuck in arrested development. They are instead acting rationally in response to the lack of incentives society offers them to be responsible fathers, husbands and providers. In addition, men are going on strike, either consciously or unconsciously, because they do not want to be injured by the myriad of laws, attitudes and hostility against them for the crime of happening to be male in the twenty-first century. Men are starting to fight back against the backlash. Men on Strike explains their battle cry.

The other side of the coin is why put up with the bull when you can get the sperm a la carte?

I read loads of the MGTOW movement forums. These are easily the most delicious pats of bitter and foolish I've ever encountered. I cannot recommend highly enough that folks seek out and giggingly consume this material.

Reddit has some great stuff, though it gets mixed in with the MRAs pretty quickly.

I really love the idea that they're claiming Japan's soushokukei are totally part of this movement, what with Japan having been *utterly ravaged* by modern feminist thinking and policy.

Really, I just love everything about these guys. They're a sort of sad faced, bitter parody of what 19th century feminists were drawn as. And something about that dynamic is just so engaging.

BS ALERT. BS ALERT. This is a facet of social conditioning that is attempting to get white men to behave like knigg-hers or at least get the perception of such out there.

Related. State Farm's commercials are anti white man. Pay attention when you see them...Most recent one involves a Eurotrash type darkie rewarding a white woman and his opposite is a degenerate old white man. Another insurance ad has an idiotic white guy cutting a tree limb that falls on a darkie's car...

LOL y'all.

All I noticed is that this is an old article that someone tried to make new by changing the publication date to June 2013.

Oops.

“Meh.”

But the "movement" is still pretty active today. Reader, check them out a bit. You might enjoy them almost as much as I do.

Really, they're just wonderful, the poor things.
