Book: Straight Men Are Awful And Should Probably Just Crawl Into Ditches and Bury Themselves Alive to Make Room For the New Woman/Gay Man Dominance

Do go on.

Bruce Fleming reviews Jack Myers' "The Future of Men: Masculinity in the Twenty-First Century" for the Free Beacon.

According to Jack Myers, the future of men in the twenty-first century is bleak. And he thinks men know it. He quotes men to whom he explained his book project asking, wryly, "You mean we have a future?" Women are on the ascendant, and men are being eclipsed: the male dominance that has been the norm for millennia is a thing of the past. Hooray?

That’s the part that's never clear. It’s hard to figure out in this book, a sweeping jog through advertisements, TV shows, statistics about college students, and Mars/Venus generalizations, how Myers feels about the changes he insists have occurred. At first glance it would seem that he’s all for the change. There isn't much to recommend men in his version of them, after all: Men have a "destructive instinct to lie" (about extra-marital affairs and everything else)--a whole chapter on that. Men suffer from “Personal Intimacy Disorder” (another chapter). They don't communicate well (much of yet another chapter).

Or at least there isn't much to recommend straight men. Gay men fare better in Myers’s telling: they are the ideal partner for women in what he calls "The New Relationship," empathetic and non-destructive partners for women. Still, the overwhelming majority of men are straight, which is apparently a problem. Or not? Myers suggests that men are simply outmoded... [H]ere he draws heavily on and quotes from the recent book by Hannah Rosin, The End of Men--women are better adapted in all ways to a post-industrial service economy than the heavy lifter males who were necessary for the Industrial Revolution. So good riddance to bad rubbish.

Most of the time, the book seems a contribution to what is called "men's studies," where men explain to men how dysfunctional they are. Yet there were moments when suddenly I was convinced this whole book was an elaborate post-Modernist joke, like the famous "Sokol hoax" of decades ago when an NYU scientist wrote a purposely left-wing jargon-filled article about how science was completely subjective, got it published in a trendy humanities journal, and then exposed the hoax to show how gullible the journal’s editors were.

I'll leave that as the teaser. Fleming the reviewer, who is himself writing a book called "Channeling Testosterone," seems to himself to think testosterone is a good thing, but -- in our no-longer-hunter-dominated, strength-crucial world -- needs to be usefully directed.

I've noticed myself that there's a problem with testosterone and masculinity. In our increasingly feminized world, men seek outlets for their testosterone-fueled impulse to compete and dominate -- fine and good, so far. That's how civilizations get made.

But there seems to be in some corners what I call a decayed masculinity, a decadent masculinity, a sort of pantomime masculinity, where "men" kind of get goofy saying "mannish things" and have "man caves" and such.*

I don't have anything against man caves -- I just question whether masculinity should be turned into a self-aware, theatrical parody of itself, as drag-queens are self-aware, theatrical parodies of femininity.

I don't know if masculinity requires its own form of virtue signalling -- look how tough I am, that kind of crap. Men don't boast and preen -- or at least men older than 25 shouldn't. That sort of thing is very common in juveniles.

I suppose that's what I object to -- maybe because all the "man" has been stamped out of men by the time they're 25, men increasingly look to the juvenile model of manhood as the only extant example of manhood on display, and thus take that to be manhood.

And of course for many, boyhood/teenagehood was the last time they were allowed to be truly male and not have to apologize for it every five minutes.

But juvenile masculinity isn't real masculinity, of course. Juvenile men are kind of, well, girlish in many ways. A lot of eyebrow-tweezering and musking up goes on at those ages, for example. Maybe a man should swagger, but he should not strut.

The Ron Swanson thing -- where everyone thinks it's great he won't eat vegetables, and treats this not as a parody, but as some kind of model of manhood to be emulated. So he doesn't eat vegetables -- so what? That's manly? Manhood has been reduced, like feminine fashion and style, to some trivial personal choices and tastes?

Swinging an axe and chopping your own firewood is manly. Minor consumer choices, and the unreasonable pride that sometimes attends to them, is being kind of girly.

Eh. Interesting. Check out the review. I'm more interested to read Fleming's upcoming book than the one he reviews, which I'm sure was his intent.

* People are defending mancaves. Honestly, I didn't really mean to attack them.

I have nothing against mancaves, really. A private space -- a personal territory, a sanctuary -- is important to anyone. But maybe particularly to a man. Men tend to be more asocial then women. Both sexes like alone time. I think men like a bit more of it.

Not sure why we don't just call it the "den" -- an old and good word, and suggestive of a lion's cave.

My only objection to it -- and it's not a strong objection -- is when it turns into a sort of childlike-man decor project.

And even then I don't mind it or anything. (I've seen some sweet mancaves.)

I guess I'm saying this is just a symptom of a deeper thing, the general urge, in this feminized age, to sort of SIGNAL "I'm a man."

Why is that, what does that need stem from?

Part of it is the rebellion against the domesticizing effect of being in a marriage. Men do not wish to be fully domesticated, and I really do get that.

Again, this is just more of a minor personal thing, but I just kind of don't get filling the space with things designed to announce "A man lives here."

To be honest, I kind of regret even having mentioned the mancave. I was just reaching for some other example (you always need three examples, it's a rule), and came up with that one.

10 Nature has a way of self-correcting. I don't know if it will and some traits that nature self-selected become obsolete. But man (and woman) have been living and evolving for hundreds of thousands of years. I'm not sure the past 50 years (and really the past 30) are going to determine our future the way Myers thinks it will.

Since you brought up testosterone, we do live in a Low-T nation, including Canada and Europe.

Lowering testosterone is definitely part of the Left's agenda. They're doing it with new rules for behavior modification and with food. Veganism is pushed to lower men's T, as well as to punish and ostracize big business.

Soy milk really does lower your T, btw.

25 Oh, and part of the reason that men supposedly have trouble with intimacy is precisely because every form of male emotional expression has been declared a sign that said male is gay.

Man caves were unnecessary when there were man clubs. A place where men could go and release their testosterone in a relatively healthy way - hunting, playing golf and cards. Man caves are merely that last refuge that man has to be alone. They aren't the best outlet, but in many cases, they are all we have left.

42 It's exactly this sort of thing that will make Islam the dominant religion in the future.

It's impossible that treating a whole segment of society-ie. one half of the human race in a politically and law-driven unfair manner won't lead to repercussions.

Please see the entire history of the human race.

The only movement that gives a rationale, a reason, and an instruction manual to "evening the odds" in a sexist battle around these days-

is Islam.

Which we are now in the business of importing by the hundreds of thousands.

Weird how the collision between feminism, leftism, and Islam- will lead to the circumstances which all but eliminate the first two.

86 There was a young, NYC hedge fund manager and his pretty girlfriend on our safari.

Dude wouldn't have lasted a night on a Boy Scout camp out.

Actually asked our ranger, "Do they bring the lions in here [the reserve] during the day?"

Did his best to get us all killed on a walking safari, and honestly asked his girlfriend what she meant when she said the lion cubs were nursing.

I have more entertaining stories of "Josh" and his misadventures.

The 'ettes would have loved our manly young ranger, however.

For his birthday I bought him a Black and Decker leafblower. The real kind that people use. He is very diligent about keeping the sidewalk and driveway clear of debris, even though it's a little heavy for him. Last weekend his daddy had to change a flat tire on his truck. Grandson helped. You would have thought he had died and gone to heaven.


His teacher says his mind wanders in class. Duh. She has him sitting on a mat for four hours talking about the letter C.


Next year he is starting kindergarten at a charter school which specializes in hands-on-learning. Learning by doing. Men are doers. Women talk. Men get things done.

Because kids today are lazy and the worst kind of stupid, i.e., the kind of stupid people who think they're smart. They know how to do nothing. All their knowledge will be in useless areas such as social relations. And those kids will soon have their own kids, who will be completely dependent and defenseless, i.e., very easy to rule.

I'm only half kidding here..

My observations of male friends of my daughters (around 40 yrs old) as they have grown up is that there is a very high percentage of them (compared to my day) who want to be provided for and find the easiest path. In their early years, it was staying with their parents.. and then rooming with whoever other friends would take them in... two of these guys (the nicest guys in the world, I have to say) stayed with my daughter and her husband for years in their guest room.

In my day, you got out and got a job and/or went to school and got out on your own as soon as you could.

I'm not saying working is what defines a man, but you really can't be a man until you stop being a kid.. and I see an inordinate number of 40 yr old kids.

I have nothing against them. But they do say something about our time and culture. They are a place to retreat. But in times past, that is what the local club / bar / pool hall / bowling alley was for. A place to go to be with other men. Men want a place to get away, but those places are few and far between. A man cave may be the last place. But you don't get the benefits that you might have gotten at those other places.

No, it wasn't. Homosexuality has never been anything but rare. There were some cultures that shrugged at sex with boys (such as modern Muslim cultures) but they do not embrace or hold homosexuality common in any sense of the word.

221 The elephant in the room that our elite masters seem to never discuss is that if a large group of people can't find a way to fit into a society, they will either find or invent a society that they can fit into.


Islam is there waiting to take in the very people that the elites despise. The things that keep straight men from joining Islam, Christianity, traditional morality, hell, the whole western tradition, are things that the elites are working to destroy.


I am not sure if it is just the ignorant arrogance of the Left that George Orwell described when he said that Leftists want to play with fire but they don't even know that fire is hot.

I knw human biology, and I do know about Greek history. Its been ridiculously overblown by later historians, and never was even common at the time.

The thing you have to comprehend here, and bear with me, is that the bulk of Greek culture was made up up of slaves who did all the labor (including things like medicine) but did not make the history books or stories. They were ignored but made up the majority of the population.

And they weren't shacking up with boy slaves to rape because they couldn't afford slaves and were working. Try to let this sink in a moment and consider what that says about the frequency of homosexual activity and behavior which was only with the rich aristo types we have records of.

255 Homosexuality in ancient times was almost entirely of the older man/younger boy type.

I'm not sure I'd say almost entirely, but often? Yep.

Men having sex with other men was frowned upon, or even punished severely.

I'll limit this to what I'm sure of--in classical Greece and Rome it wasn't necessarily. What was frowned upon was specifically being the catamite.

You know what a man cave is? A man who surrendered the entire rest of his house to the wife. And its usually decorated for a 20 year old with sports posters and a big game area and huge TV to play on.

Its a eunuch cave.

Build a library into the house with a fireplace and big comfortable chairs, a place that smells manly, not like Axe cologne and cheap liquor. That's a man's room.

Posted by: Skip at April 07, 2016 05:26 PM (HGc3Y)


To a certain extent, it's both.

Women can only achieve in a society that values women as themselves. And a society which values the rule of law.

So far, except for Thatcher, most of the women is gov't in recentish years appear to be lunatic leftists/fymynysts-

who hate the men in their society.

But, literally, a woman's achievement in society ends with a man's fist and the willingness to use it against her. This is what Islam is bringing to the table. And what a goodly portion of the Koran and Hadiths is devoted to.

By and large, western/Christian men don't think this way, but muslims....well...read their book.

Think of what your life would be like if you could no longer walk streets safely. If simply going to the store, not to mention your job, could get you raped.*

Like a tough guy, or a hero, if a man is a man, he just is a man, he doesn't need to tell anyone or pose.

The opposite of the limp wristed metrosexual nancy is not a tough guy that beats up people and wears all leather and chains. That's a bully, he's signalling how little he is a man.

The man is just a guy who does what is right whatever the cost, protecting the weak around him, providing for his family, and building a better future. He doesn't have the time or inclination to explain or display his manhood. Like you said:

he just is.

367 I have not read any of the comments yet, but I'm going to say something very unfeminist. Any power that women enjoy is at the pure indulgence of men. Once the social stigma of homosexual acts has gone away, they will have surrendered all the power that was afforded them. Men will have no use for women except as subservient child bearers. Men do prefer the company of other men to women. In a society in which homosexuality is considered feminine, men indulge women for sexual favors, participating in acts of intimacy such as cuddling, etc. When in fact they really just want a sammich and continue video gaming. When you combine all the gay rights, and the rape culture, I'm sure many in the generations coming up will have no hangups in returning to the pre Christian days when women were kept separate and men wrote their erotic poetry to young boys.

At least, the good ones are. And people find that incredibly appealing, despite a desperate, frantic effort by the left to destroy all that.

Now now. Snuggling is perfectly manly...... depending on the context.

Snuggling with your woman to put a smile on her face so she offers you another round: Manly

Snuggling with another man while out hunting in the wilderness in the freezing cold, and he falls through the ice and develops hypothermia: Manl.....uhhhh, sorry Dood. You're gonna die.

418 And my friend was trying to give me instructiosn on how to use a smart phone. I don't don't know why except she mustthink I'm a luddite. Why teach me how to use a smart phone. My phone is dumb and so am I. I don't get internet access on it or e-mail, by choice. Need to reach me? Text or call me or send an e-mail to my computer.

419 LOL you and me both. We didn't have a phone in the
house until I was 12 years old and that was the old black rotary model
and it was a shared line with a neighbor, made for many amusing moments.

Those were the days...always a party line. Pick it up real quiet and listen in. I think our phone number was something like 023.

420 The original name for doilies was antimacassar. They were put on the backs of chairs and sofas to cope with "Macassar," oily gook Victorian men put on their hair. When men leaned back, the anti-macassars blotted the oil, protecting the chair/sofa.

Just sayin'.

424 As far as some alliance between straight women and gay men: I've worked with quite a few gay men over the years and got along with most. A couple of them became good friends. But the good friends all agreed with me when I said that there is a subset of gay men who have a real disdain for and dislike of women and it's not that far below the surface.

And even among the ones who didn't have that (I didn't feel it, anyway), there is still a big psychological gap between gay men and women. Many women seem to think gay men are just chicks with penises who think just like straight women do. I remember going out to dinner with a couple of gays (who were not a couple) and one made a joke about the "P street beach" - a notorious gay pick up spot in DC. The other met his eyes, frowned and nodded slightly in my direction. "Don't talk about that stuff in front of Donna" his gesture said. I was glad he did it, as I really didn't want to know the sordid details. It was a reminder how alien the subculture of gay male anonymous sex is to me and to most women, who can't fathom willingly having sex in bathhouses and parks and public bathrooms with dozens of strangers. (women who do get paid for it and generally do not lead happy or enviable lives.)

I am not so sure that's a gay man thing, other than only other gay men being willing to be on the other side of the hole in the wall.

If more women were willing to have totally abandoned, no strings required sex with strangers in bathrooms, or at parties or what have you without charging, I'm guessing a lot of straight guys would be fine with it.

Oh, yeah, we put the brakes on the straight guys. Nobody is restraining gays - which is why AIDS spread like wildfire in the gay bathhouses.

But that's my point - they're not "just like us girls" only male. The only way I'd have sex in a public bathroom stall in a bus terminal would be if someone was holding a gun to my head.

Since you brought up testosterone, we do live in a Low-T nation, including Canada and Europe.

Lowering testosterone is definitely part of the Left's agenda. They're doing it with new rules for behavior modification and with food. Veganism is pushed to lower men's T, as well as to punish and ostracize big business.

Soy milk really does lower your T, btw.

441 In the Red Queen, Matt Ridley points out that sex is the sine qua non of human existence. The modern world moves diametrically opposite of nature. Our alpha women have careers first, then start looking for a man in their late 20s early 30s, and maybe get around to having a child around 35. And many of these women are convinced they do not need a man. Stagnant wages and high rates of divorce, combined with laws that favor moms over dads, has convinced millions of young men to avoid marriage and growing up altogether. Women need men and men need women. Marriage and commitment to raising children together is the bedrock of civilization. Every other idea being trotted out by the progressive mind is stupid and bound to end up poorly. ZPG created a baby shortage throughout Europe and Japan, and Muslims are moving in to fill the gap with fecundity rates above 5 while European women are reproducing at a rate around 1.5. From an evolutionary perspective, gay men are a dead end. We need to wake up to the fact that the left has entered into a suicide pack that guarantees the destruction of all that man has accomplished in the last 2000 years.

443 A man-cave is actually just an example of how egregiously feminist our culture has become. It's the space most women "allow" their men to have in the otherwise feminine household. Because, in 2016, men are no longer the heads of the household.

It is also a place we go to escape... Largely the matriarchy.

444 Soft men have been a problem for some time now.
Here's a book you might like to read, it's pretty short for a self help book.
No More Mr Nice Guy by Dr Robert Glover.
As the feminization of society drags on, more boys never get the role model for men, and instead learn to people please women. Now as adults we no longer have a true picture of what a real integrated man, (not a jerk and not nice guy) is. NMMNG gives solid instruction and real activities to learn to retrain yourself from the destructive old mental patterns.
Also got a website www.nomoremrniceguy.com and a internet forum for an online support group.

448 I haven't posted for a long time but this post struck a nerve. I have made similar observations. I have lamented the way men, especially straight white males, have been portrayed as clumsy dolts subservient to their wive, the wise gay neighbor and manly patient successful black neighbor in practically every family sitcom and commercial for the last 20 years. Don't get me wrong, I have no problem with any of the fore mentioned groups. I simply don't like the way the hardworking father is portrayed in comparison. I think it is corrosive to the significant portion of this country that built and defended the majority of this country. For self description, I am a white male, that served in the Marine Corps, punched an adult male that was making improper advances to my 8 year old daughter, that worked hard and supported my family, never screwed around, knows how to fix damn near anything and a lot of other things I consider to be manly. In the last few years I have seen young men go thru the metro-male phase, the epic beard phase, the man bag phase, and the man bun phase as these sissies chase fashion. It seriously rubs me the wrong way.

In a lot of the old 1950s-1960s sitcoms, men were often portrayed the same way: the wife was a all-knowing one who made everything work out in the end. Ralph Kramden the bus driver was a blowhard, for example, scared of his wife Alice, who was the one with the common sense. You knew darned well he'd never hit her in their entire married life and never would.

Of course, then it was just TV shows, not the entire rotten culture.
