I originally started blogging because I thought I had to help get the message out. I was wrong. The message is out there, and a lot of men out there have heard it or figured things out themselves. I don't see much point in continuing since I honestly don't have much to contribute. We all know the score, and I don't need to tell you what it is. However, I don't think this is the case with all MRA bloggers. Many are still producing good work and have quite a few things to say that need to be said.
I've decided to embrace the essence of MGTOW. Even though the tide seems to be shifting, why fight a battle that won't be won anytime soon? From my vantage point, it looks like it will be a war of attrition if it isn't already. This isn't to suggest that MGTOW isn't about fighting battles. Just that it's about fighting battles on our terms. I might as well game the system while I can, and move on as soon as I can't. I consider it my own form of guerilla warfare on the Matriarchy, and it's possibly more satisfying and effective than just dropping out. Every taxpayer dollar spent on me, that I don't pay back in, is one less to perpetuate the current injustice.
That said, there is one more post on the way...

Denison police charged Perdew with manslaughter.
...probably the most surprising thing about this incident. I don't expect any surprises during sentencing though.
(image shamelessly borrowed from No Ma'am)
In all honesty, I don't watch very many films and I don't watch any television. I see one, maybe two, new movies a year. Television is crap and none of the movies I can enjoy watching more than once have been in theatres in over a decade. However, I was a bit surprised to see Matt Damon take a swipe at James Bond.
Bond is "an imperialist and he's a misogynist. He kills people and laughs and sips martinis and wisecracks about it," Damon, 36, told The Associated Press in an interview.
Growing up as a kid in the Matriarchy, James Bond was the man I admired. He had all the coolest toys, scored left and right with all the hot chicks, and always managed beat the villains. Even as a young man, I thought that James Bond had everything a man could want, and more.
How times have changed, or maybe it's just me. And it's kind of funny how a man "taking advantage" of slutty women (re: pick up artist) is considered a misogynist. I thought one branch of feminism advocated sexual liberation? I may not advocate the PUA lifestyle, but I certainly don't see anything wrong with it. If PUA's want a piece of what women are giving freely these days, the more power to 'em.
Paul Greengrass, Damon's director on Universal's "Bourne Ultimatum" and its 2004 predecessor, "The Bourne Supremacy," agreed that Bond is a relic from a different era.
"He's an insider. He likes being a secret agent. He worships at the altar of technology. He loves his gadgets. And he embodies this whole set of misogynistic values," Greengrass said.
"He likes violence. That's part of the appeal of the character. He has no guilt. He's essentially an imperial adventurer of a particularly English sort.
"Personally, I spit on those values. I think we've moved on a little bit from all that, the martini shaken, not stirred."
My idea of what a real man embodies may have changed since I was a kid, but I still have fond memories of Bond. I might still wish I was James Bond if we lived in a different world that once was. James Bond represents all that used to be manly (yet refined) in the world, and some of what still is if you don't listen to those feminist harpies.
Makes me wonder if Bourne Ultimatum will be worth the cost of renting it in a year or two. If Jason Bourne is supposed to be the antithesis of James Bond, it sounds more to me like a chick flick than an action movie.

Only Women Can Stop False Rape Accusations (Male Samizdat)
I decided against re-posting the text in it's entirety for the sake of brevity, but it's definitely worth reading if you are as annoyed as I am by the list the feminists made. There are several other good articles on his blog too.
If you haven't seen it and don't want to waste your time, the feminists that spread around their ridiculous list are trying to imply that many men really do think it's okay to rape a woman if she's drunk, going for a jog, or watching TV. Many (if not all) of the reasons these women think men use to justify rape are pretty stupid.
I like Male Samizdat's parody of the feminist list since it shows how ridiculous it is while also pointing out the dirty secret of false accusations. However, I think we can make a better list (although a poorer parody) using reasons that women actually use to justify a false accusation of rape.
Without further ado, here is my list.
- If you have sex with a guy and regret it the next day, don't falsely accuse him of rape.
- If your husband catches you having sex with another man, don't falsely accuse your lover of rape.
- If you get into a bar fight and don't want to tell the judge during custody hearings where the bruises really came from, don't falsely accuse a man of rape.
- If you have sex with a guy and he tells his friends about it, don't falsely accuse him of rape to protect your reputation.
- If you're pissed off at the cop that arrested you or gave you a ticket, don't falsely accuse him of rape.
- If your boyfriend breaks up with you, don't falsely accuse him of rape.
- If you feel deprived of attention, don't falsely accuse a man of rape.
- If you are a hired as a stripper for some Duke lacrosse players from wealthy families, don't falsely accuse them of rape to try to get money out of them.
- If you want to have an abortion without people thinking you're an immoral baby-killer, don't falsely claim the baby is the product of rape.
- If a man rejects your sexual advances, don't falsely accuse him of rape.
- If one of your friends sees you having sex with a random guy at a party, don't falsely accuse him of rape just so your friends won't think you're a slut.
- If you are having an affair while your husband is overseas and are afraid you might be pregnant, don't falsely accuse a man of rape to hide your infidelity.
- If your boyfriend is cheating on you, don't falsely accuse him of rape.
- If you have sex with every guy in a fraternity while they video tape it and realize it was a bad idea the next day, don't falsely accuse them of rape.
- If you think you were infected with a sexually transmitted disease by your boyfriend, don't falsely accuse him or some other man of rape.
- If you are a teacher and have sex with one of your students in school, don't falsely accuse him of rape to avoid losing your job.
- If you are a pregnant teenager and don't want your parents to know you are sexually active, don't falsely accuse a man of rape.
- If you make some poor decisions, take responsibility. Don't falsely accuse a man of rape. The above scenarios are all based on real incidents in which a man was falsely accused of rape.
- A 1994 study conducted by Dr. Eugene Kanin concluded that at least 41% of rape allegations in the studied area were false. The actual numbers are probably much higher since allegations were only counted as false if the accuser recanted, even after being told that recanting will result in charges for filing a false police report. Cases where the alleged victim decided to drop the charges were not counted as false accusations.
If anyone knows of any other blatant examples of false rape allegations, please post it in the comments. I'll add the good ones to the list.

The next day, two of the young women I work with claimed to have spent thirty minutes trying to loosen that nut with no luck at all. Of course, I had to loosen it for them when they saw me walking by, and it really wasn't on that tight. I wonder if women have relied so much on men to do the "heavy lifting" that they are unable to do anything requiring a little strength for psychological reasons. I made sure to put the two women to shame by letting them know that the older woman had no trouble doing it by herself.
Like most men, if there's a jar or something that I need to open, one way or another I'm going to open it. Since I'm unfortunate enough to work mostly around women, it doesn't get opened if I can't open it. If a woman gives up, she can eventually find a nearby man that can get the job done easily. Despite what the feminists say, men will never be obsolete. Even in an office, there are things that require a little bit of elbow grease. Women may joke about how many men it takes to screw in a light bulb, but I really do wonder how many women it would take to move a piece of heavy office furniture or if any number could move it at all. Whether it is physical or psychological, there are many jobs that women are unable or unwilling to do. Without men, civilization would collapse as soon as a woman needs the oil in her car changed.

Seeing the Eternal Bachelor, Duncan Idaho, call it quits got me thinking. After choosing to go my own way and avoid the pitfalls of life in the Matriarchy, I got my first proper introduction to the MRA Movement on Duncan's blog. Duncan's departure has left a void in the fight for men's rights. It seems like many other MRA bloggers have also been busy lately with work and such. Although time is currently a very precious commodity for me, I figured I should do my part to fill part of the void left in the wake of the Eternal Bachelor. I may be busy, but the truth is I can make time to write a post from time to time. Without the Eternal Bachelor, I might never have realized how many other men were pissed off by feminist crap. I doubt we'll convert many manginas anytime soon, but men need a place to go to once they realize that things are terribly wrong in this world. If a couple come here from time to time, my time on this blog will have been well spent.
I wish Duncan the best and I hope his new residence is somewhere safe from feminists.
