The American Psychological Association (APA) Effectively Declares Traditional Masculinity to be Toxic Masculinity; Urges Men to Purge Themselves of Manliness

We need to have our droopy bits snipped off and tidied up into a lady-like #FakeNews snizz.

The new eunuch imperative was announced by a woman.


The American Psychological Association (APA) effectively declared war on "traditional masculinity" in its newly released rules on how psychologists should deal with men...

In announcing the new guidelines on the APA website, Stephanie Pappas noted that most of the top CEOs, business leaders, and politicians are men, but that men also commit most homicides, are most likely to be victims of violent crime, have a shorter life expectancy than women, and face harsher punishments in school.

On the other hand, we also Make All The Stuff, including the new stuff, and including the intangible stuff like the math. Well, not all of it. But a lot of it.

Could it be possible that the drive to compete and dominate might be an irreplaceable part of the creative process and general industriousness? Robots make things because they're following mathematical programming, but men make things because they're following biological programming, and the biological fact that women are more attracted to doers and makers (and warriors) than to couch-potatoes.

Do women want men just to be robots, making things for society for no particular reason without any toxic notion that being productive and innovative will raise our status, win us respect from men and desire from women, and redound to our own benefit by showing we competed and won?

Or are we supposed to keep doing these things without any expectation of personal gain?

Do women do a lot of things without any expectation of personal advancement or gain in one area or another? Is it just men who are supposed to give up social competition?

"APA's new Guidelines for Psychological Practice With Boys and Men strive to recognize and address these problems in boys and men while remaining sensitive to the field's androcentric past," Pappas wrote. "Thirteen years in the making, they draw on more than 40 years of research showing that traditional masculinity is psychologically harmful and that socializing boys to suppress their emotions causes damage that echoes both inwardly and outwardly."

By "androcentric past," they are referencing the idea that men were once taken as the default exemplar of humanity and women were taken to be deviations from the model. If women were more emotional than men, that was a problem with women, and not humanity generally. If women were more neurotic than men, that was a problem with women, and not humanity generally.

Obviously, the NPCs do not seek to recognize women as equals to men; they simply seek to replace the androcentric model, in which any deviation from the male norm was considered somewhat pathological, with the gynocentric one, in which any deviation from the female norm is pathological and should be treated with therapy, drugs, and hormonal treatments.

If men are more competitive than women (and I'm not sure they even are -- women are ruthlessly and unceasingly competitive in the social pecking order games), then that's a pathology of men which must be treated, with an eye towards making them more like the default, normal, paragon model of humanity -- women.

If men are more (overtly) aggressive than women, that's a pathology, and men must be taught to express their aggressions through seeding rumors and trying to turn a social rival's friends against her and ultimately drive her from the group.

Men must be made into women. Women are the perfect working model; men are the defective deviation from the proper functioning of the model.

The guidelines themselves warn against "masculinity ideology," which refers to a "particular constellation of standards" such as "anti-feminity, achievement, eschewal of the appearance of weakness, and adventure, risk, and violence."

Any guidelines about a much more rapid "femininity ideology," aka feminism?


The guidelines mention gender role conflict, defining masculinity as separate from femininity and focusing on "four domains:" success, power, and competition; fear of experiencing vulnerable emotions; discomfort with expressing affection among men; and conflict between work and family relations.

Men show affection among other men by 1, busting their chops in a manner that has certain rules to it to avoid getting too vicious and thus sparking violence and 2, actually complimenting each other, which admittedly is sort of rare, but it is generally meant earnestly when it does happen (unless you're a feminized type who is forever praising your fellow NeverTrumpers' latest mouthfart online articles while not so secretly despising each other -- you know, like chicks), and 3, otherwise generally getting along with them and not getting into Queen Bee pecking order fights with them every single day alternating with (disingenuously) praising each other. You know, like women do. But I guess that's the "right way" to show affection. Because women are the Perfect Norm men must aspire to.

For 40 years, women were relentlessly propagandized that everything they do is perfect and "empowering" and men were at the same time endlessly propagandized that everything they do is wrong, cruel, improper and "threatening." Maybe psychologists should apply the same You Go Girl methods they used to pump up women's egos for men?

Or should they just continue degrading them forever?

The degrading doesn't really mean all that much to us as we just kind of ignore this feminized, maniacally-angry-at-straight-men thing that unmarried women and gay guys have turned into a near religion, but it does have some effect, especially on boys and young men who haven't learned to ignore this bullshit as sexual supremacism of lunatics.

It has bad effects, and the lunatics should stop trying to pathologize and "problematize" standard and unobjectionable male behaviors and inclinations.

There are pathological extremes of male behavior, of course -- but those have long been recognized as mental defects. But now psychology is coming for standard, unobjectionable, useful and productive inborn male traits.

102 Psychology isn't really a science is it?

Last I checked, 99% of Psychology studies are either:
1. Conducted on college students
2. Meta-studies that smoosh together great big batches of data in ways that would make any competent data scientist cringe and don't properly control for all the many uncertainties that each individual study outlined.

The problem with 1 is most college students are morons who don't really yet have a sense of self and are nearly always mirroring the behaviors of the people around them.

The problem with 2 should be obvious.

126 But psychology as a science, i.e. a field that can produce meaningful, replicable results, is a failure. It simply cannot do lab science the way the hard sciences can.

Right, it belongs more in the category of philosophy, instead of pretending to be a science or medicine. Its guesswork and speculation and probabilities, not hard science. That doesn't mean it is necessarily wrong, its just not provable. Even the most famous and careful studies would not stand up to a freshmen level physics course requirements. And usually they're horrifically flawed and biased like the infamous Kinsey report.

136 Haven't they already complained about the lack of masculine men? Are all you females that go along with this nonsense out there completely oblivious to the obvious connection between lowered testosterone and a lack of fertility?

Plus no matter how hard they try, no woman can teach a boy how to be a man (nor can a man teach a girl how to be a woman).

It's just not logical or reasonable to expect anything different.

Yet somehow we get this. I know what it really is but some folks go along with this because they truly believe the cover story.

The real reason this is being shoved out is to create more chaos in society, more confused children who lead to confused adults. More children who are vulnerable to bullies and to over aggressive teachers who don't want to be bothered to handle boys differently than girls. Boys are tougher to deal with. That's been known for ages.

This is all a means to control those in society who are a danger to the elite/globalist/One World government proponents or the enemies of the US because our country stands even in it's weakened state as a bulwark against their assuming control over all the economic levers of power enabling them to promote themselves and their countries into positions of power that fulfill their religio-political wet dreams.

177 IIRC, the pill makes women find girly/cute men more attractive.

What women find attractive in men has, according to some studies, been demonstrated to vary based on where they are on their menstrual cycle. The closer they are to ovulation, the more ruggedly masculine and traditional they want their men. The further away, the more cute and affectionate.

However, this was a psychological study and of a limited pool of women so... its probably bovine feces. But its the only data we have right now and seems plausible. Maybe the ettes can provide personal insight.

Last I checked, 99% of Psychology studies are either:
1. Conducted on college students
2. Meta-studies that smoosh together great big batches of data in ways that would make any competent data scientist cringe and don't properly control for all the many uncertainties that each individual study outlined.

The problem with 1 is most college students are morons who don't really yet have a sense of self and are nearly always mirroring the behaviors of the people around them.

The problem with 2 should be obvious.

WEIRD and p-hacking are huge problems in psychology studies and its even stupider sibling, social science studies.

Western Educated Industrialized Rich and Democratic (the last in the broad sense of the term, not the party affiliation sense)

Most psych studies are exactly as noted, WEIRD college kids. Also note that rich is used in the global mean sense. Extrapolation is being done of people in a particular culture, which does, in fact, matter, onto all people and, yeah, people aren't widgets.

Then there's p-hacking. What's that? Data mining your data until you find something, anything, that seems significant and then, voila, your study found something, look at you go!

This is why there's such a massive replicability problem in psych studies. Now, that's one thing. The replicability and p-hacking problems with minor trifles such as cancer studies is rather another.

230 While I don't doubt that the Left/Feminists have declared masculinity toxic in order to displace them, there may also be a biological component that may be easing acceptance of this agenda via birth control pills:

Millions of women use hormonal forms of contraception, and some studies indicate the pill could affect partner preferences. A new study shows women were attracted to less masculine male faces after going on the pill, while their ratings of the attractiveness of female faces were unaffected. And in couples who first met when the woman was on the pill, the men were less likely to have manly faces than those who met when the woman was off the pill. If supported, the findings could have important implications for how relationships are formed.

Just throwing that into the mix, FWIW.

Traditionally domestication of the male has been accomplished by the female by using affection, sex and pleasure reinforcements.

Since a lot of women have become screaming whining harpies the State will step in with a much more brutal and mechanical way of accomplishing this.

Note the large army that China maintains. That's not just to threaten the world with. It's necessary or else all those single males would begin to wonder why they should listen to old men living in luxury about how they should act and where they should go and what to do.

We agreed to disagree.

But long and short of it is that the thinking on this is that biology plays only a small role in determining gender roles, and that it's society that actually determines gender roles.

And that men feel that they are entitled to womens bodies for sex, and use sex as a women to keep women down by knocking them up and making them raise babies.

She also went on a whole rant about how guys think that just because they're nice to girls, girls should owe them sex. I tried to explain to her that guys are always told that "women like nice guys" then when they realize that's not true, they get confused.

Anyways, we ended the conversation because it was going nowhere fast and I was trying to bring her home with me later that night and didn't want to step on my own dick as it were.

Maybe. The pill sort of simulates pregnancy -- a state that females of child-bearing age may be evolved to thrive in. I'm going from memory, something I read, so I don't have stats handy, but women in the past generally had babies throughout their reproductive years. Might not even have periods more than a couple of times in their lives, being either pregnant or nursing for decades. The way we live now is messing with our hormones, since those hormones are supposed to be used on reproduction, not an astonishing 12 periods a year. So it's arguable that the pill has its upsides in terms of restoring women to the state that nature prefers.

Evolutionary psychologists are considered eeeeebbbbiiiilll because they dare posit that, hey, you know that big lump of gray matter up there that controls every thing we do and say? Maybe, just tossing this out there, maybe there's some biological basis to stuff.

I am not in the DNA is destiny camp but to deny that there are physiological bases for how we act is absurd. For example, my political beliefs can be boiled down to leave me alone. I just want to be left alone as much as possible.

According to Mommy, when I was a baby and got fussy, I wanted someone to come over and see if I was okay and then I wanted to be put down and left alone.

Yeah, yeah, I do think those are related.

294 APA's new Guidelines for Psychological Practice With Boys and Men strive to recognize and address these problems in boys and men while remaining sensitive to the field's androcentric past
+++++++++++
The social justice is strong with these ones.

This is just codification of what has been going on for some time. Look at the damn schools to see how denying male reality and attempting to force compliance to female norms has been going on for a while now. See also the increase in female academic performance, college admissions, etc.

This will not end well. One of the things that makes men produce (and we do produce very well, even when the work is shit or dangerous) is honor. Work is respected and can get you a mate. Not true anymore. Tucker was on to something when he talked about the topic.

The increasingly systematic (among the institutions like schools, hospitals, courts, etc.) disrespect of men as people extends to their production. This production is going to cease. Why bother if there's no honor it? Why work for more than a basement apartment and an X-Box? Everyone hates you, your work doesn't matter and it doesn't land you a mate anyway. So why do it?

It is dangerous for non-economic reasons, too. Men produce, but they are also more aggressive and violent. If you remove all honor and respect, some men will go demand i. Others will follow them.

Do they want an antisocial and likely misogynistic cult to sweep the nation's male youth? Because they can easily get one. There's one ready-made to come in and fill the vacuum: Islam. I think the groundwork for home-grown radical converts is well laid down, and it is crap like this that is doing it.

I've not dated for a while now, but when I did, I saw women that initially professed to want a masculine, alpha male. The trouble was, what they really wanted, after a period of time, was an Alpha that they could sometimes get to be a Beta when they wanted them to cater to them. Then came the contempt for acting like a Beta.

Piffle. A more articulated fleshlight? The sexing part of sex is better when there are boobs to touch and a mouth to kiss, but that's not all that makes it better.

The psychological component of sex is important. It is an ego boost when a girl chooses to do fun things with your junk and let you do things to her places.

It's part of the male urge to conquer.

I love DeSantis, repeatedly contributed to his campaign, and delighted he is my Governor. Unfortunately, he can't be Dictator DeSantis, although that would work for me, too. Gov Scott had a Secretary of State that was practically useless during the election. There was supposed to be staff from the SOS office to ensure that the Broward Co/Snipes election crew were operating within the law (and that is why, imo, Scott didn't remove her before the election, he thought the SOS had it covered.) Sec Detzner sends two millenials that looked like Brenda Snipes' niece and nephew as his election team. Strangely, they saw nothing and Detzner used their "reports" as his own reasoning to not be involved. In contrast, DeSantis' new SOS is the Elections Supervisor from Seminole County (population around 1/2 million). If I was guessing, that selection might be bc if anyone would know how the vote was corrupted by Snipes, it would be another Elections Supervisor.

I don't think so. It *might* be able to go the other direction but even then I don't think so. I suspect this is the reason for the feminist demands - strong demands - to ban something that almost doesn't exist yet: robotic sex dolls. If they were to get good enough to be an actual companion (big damn "if") that you have a chance in hell of landing, why bother with the real thing? No one wants to starve and since men are the primary producers of actual goods, starvation is a real possibility if no one needs to go out and try to win a mate anymore.

Yeah its a bit ... like a lunatic wrote it, then it was edited by hundreds of desert illiterates over the centuries. It has some good parts, some of it is positively poetic.

No indication in the article of a sex breakdown (e.g., number of partners for men and women), which would be interesting to see.

One other thing that stood out at me is that this article (not on its main topic) contradicts the conventional wisdom (that I do observe routinely) about Millenials. This article says there are fewer partners because Millenials are more individualistic. The political assessment is that they're more strongly collectivist and thus their politics.

It can't be both.

427 My take on the Quran is that Mohammed may well have been inspired of God in the beginning, the Mecca period. Then when he got sent packing to Medina, he grew bitter and switched sides, as it were. Tuned into ol Beelzebub.

Which would explain how Islam has great parts... and truly horrific parts. And all the horrific parts came late, after people got seduced by the good stuff.

For reasons such as that, and also that no complete "original" version exists that is within 100 years of Mohammed, I strongly favor the view that what is known as the Koran was pasted together in the mid 8th century out of quite a few pieces of manuscripts, some of them by a historical Mohammed, some by court writers of the new Arabic dynasties. I also think much of what is said about Mohammed's life are mythical stories invented long after his life, much like George Washington and the Cherry Tree.

449 A large part of the problem is that young women don't know what they want, or are too afraid to admit it. They want to marry and have babies and stay home to raise them. But if you admit that at 22, you'd be crucified. So they end up in the meat market that is modern dating, eventually find some guy and stick with him for years and years despite his refusal to grow up, get a better job, or move out of his parent's house, etc. When they finally do push him to commit, the result is often resentment on both sides.

One of the results, IMHO, is that there's less "churn" in the dating pool. A smaller number of women are dating a lot more among a small number of men, but most other men, even decent ones, are locked out.

The Twitch girl that supposedly makes the most money, Amaranth, has "boyfriend applications" for her simpering Patreon followers. Of course she already has a boyfriend and has no intention of dating one of the worthless losers that worships her online.

I unapologetically dislike e-thots. I hold them in the same contempt I'd hold any other conman that exploits the vulnerable. I find it funny that Hookers are the ones with a social stigma attached to them, even though they're at least providing an honest service for payment.

458 If you have to pay 20 cows and 10 hogs to her father for her hand in marriage?
You're doing it right.


That reminds me of a hilarious LDS Church-produced short called Johnny Lingo. If you haven't seen it, try and find a copy.

Setting: Hawaii of maybe 100 years ago.
Backstory: Women of the day are given in marriage only to men who can compensate the girl's father appropriately for the loss to his household. Women of the time are very proud of the price paid because it signals they are / were highly desirable.

So this famously shrewd Polynesian trader comes to the island and is rumored to be interested in asking for a woman's hand in marriage. This woman is poorly treated by everyone and generally thought to be ugly, sullen, uninteresting, etc. The people of the island are confused why the trader would want her. They guess it might be because she can be had for a very low price.

So the trader arrives and announces his interest. There is a public negotiation for the woman's hand. The father is being advised by a matchmaker type person and the father asks for three cows. Everyone in attendance mocks the father because they think this is an out of line request. They think it's way too high.

Everyone in the crowd is excited to watch the famously shrewd trader negotiate the father down to nothing. The trader shocks everyone by offering EIGHT cows instead of three. Everyone is stunned, including the father, who greedily and immediately accepts.

The trader soon delivers the eight cows and goes on honeymoon with the lady. A few months later we meet with the trader and his wife and discover she is lovely, graceful, and kind. The trader saw her as a wonderful diamond in the rough and rather than trading her for a great bargain, he "overpaid" to demonstrate to his intended bride how much he valued her. She blossomed in their home because his good treatment of her allowed her to see herself the way the trader did.

PUA = Pick-Up Artist. Men who try to sell other men that all you need to succeed with women is "game", and tend to denigrate other men. Oddly enough, these are hated by InCels and MGTOWs, although all three share a similar view of female nature.

THOT = That Ho Over There. Derived From the African American Vernacular or Ebonics. A women who flaunts her sexuality, but never offers it to the InCels and only offers it to the "Chads".

e-THOT = Cyberspace version of above. Often rake in money from lonely male viewers.

That's what the metrosexuals now and in the past has always missed - if you don't replicate yourselves through having children you will take after you, then the society you build will have about 50 years of life and then pffffft.

478 The Twitch girl that supposedly makes the most money, Amaranth, has "boyfriend applications" for her simpering Patreon followers. Of course she already has a boyfriend and has no intention of dating one of the worthless losers that worships her online.

I unapologetically dislike e-thots. I hold them in the same contempt I'd hold any other conman that exploits the vulnerable. I find it funny that Hookers are the ones with a social stigma attached to them, even though they're at least providing an honest service for payment.

Piffle. A more articulated fleshlight? The sexing part of sex is better when there are boobs to touch and a mouth to kiss, but that's not all that makes it better.

The psychological component of sex is important. It is an ego boost when a girl chooses to do fun things with your junk and let you do things to her places.

It's part of the male urge to conquer.

No, it's basically a woman who is a modern day phone sex operator scaled up. She puts on sexy video shows to men and, for a price, will deliver favors. Those favors may include exclusive photos, private video chats, personalized messages or merchandise, used clothing, etc.

THOT is "that ho over there", meant to describe a woman who's only interesting because she's relatively attractive, not for any other reason. It's also implied she's someone who uses men for their resources.

487 The thing is, if you're young, handsome, and tall, you're gonna have an easy shot at a lot of sexing from easy sluts these days, from all accounts and what I've seen of how young ladies act. Its not that they're all trashy, some are very good ladies still. Its just that the number of "bad girls" now outnumbers the ladies and they're really blatant about it.

But if you're short, not so good looking, or overweight... its no easier to get some than ever.

Psychopharmacology almost certainly has a lot to do with it. SSRIs in young men (under 25) are reckless. The odds of suicide are much greater than the odds of an externally-directed rage monster, but both happen. Where you have a mass shooting involving a young man (e.g., most of them), look for the SSRIs and you will almost always find them.

Anyone who prescribes an SSRI to a non-institutionalized young man should be held jointly and severally liable if he goes rage monster.

You would think.

But the short, overweight, not so good looking women are also sexually attracted to the top 20% of guys, and spend much of their energy trying to attract those guys instead of settling for people more attainable to them.

If they get really lucky, the handsome rich guy bangs her behind a dumpster or something when he's drunk.

Seriously though its true, even in my very limited experience I noticed that girls pay you better and more attention if you're attached -- even if you're with her -- than when you're single.

Maybe its confidence, maybe its competition, maybe its the assumption that if you have a girl then you're worth having, I dunno.

My take on the Quran is that Mohammed may well have been inspired of God in the beginning, the Mecca period. Then when he got sent packing to Medina, he grew bitter and switched sides, as it were. Tuned into ol Beelzebub.

Which would explain how Islam has great parts... and truly horrific parts. And all the horrific parts came late, after people got seduced by the good stuff.

Nah. mohammed and his followers were always a bunch of bloodthirsty savages. But during the Meccan period, the mohammedans were a small, weak minority, so they were on their best behavior. Once they became more powerful in Medina, they could let their freak flag fly, so to speak. The Medinan suras reflect this rather more aggressive mohammedanism.

Incidentally, a lot of the really nice stuff in the Meccan suras doesn't apply anymore because of the mohammedan doctrine of abrogation which holds that when suras are in conflict, the later suras take precedence. So the bloodthirsty shit is what becomes mohammedan law.

agree completely.

I've found that I have my best luck with girls that are attractive, but have hotter friends, if that makes sense. So if there's a group with 2 9's, an 8, and a 6, I'll usually go for the 8, or maybe the 6, depending on how many drinks I've had.

If it's a group of 4's, they all think they're too good for me.

It's a weird thing.

573 By "androcentric past," they are referencing the idea that men were once taken as the default exemplar of humanity and women were taken to be deviations from the model. If women were more emotional than men, that was a problem with women, and not humanity generally. If women were more neurotic than men, that was a problem with women, and not humanity generally.

That part isn't hit hard enough. It simply isn't true that men regarded women as "pathological". Incomprehensible, yes. But womanliness has never been regarded as some disease to be cured. If you want to see how it worked, just read old writers. Conan Doyle will do. He sentimentalizes like mad, but he's not hostile. You can get more cynical views from pre-Victorians. But nothing like this.

What these harpies want is really to emasculate, iin so far as they cannot simply exterminate, men.

But it cannot last. Eventually the girls will realize the price they are paying for putting up with feminist shit. And then they'll learn the truth of Kipling's "more deadly than the male."

I think that is an often repeated canard. I've had the dubious honor of being around women when they talk about guys and think there aren't any around, and its all about looks and um, other attributes. They'll settle for someone who's not so hot but gives whatever else they want, but they all want the hunky handsome guy.

And while I've not used Tinder, I suspect the handsome pic with the chiseled abs has a much easier time than the not so handsome guy with great game.

...

Mohammed was entranced by the spiritual leaders around him, who were both Christians and Jews. He attempted to join them, but was rebuffed because of his non-orthodoxy, and then turned on them.

He very specifically sought out spiritual experience that would justify his position in the community--and ended up in the cave with a jinn who choked him and demanded that he "recite."

The mix of Christian and Jewish figures and texts in what he is supposed to have said (none was written down at the time; not until after a devastating battle where very many of his devotees who were able to recite all of his suras were killed) are a complete shambles. He has Miriam, brother of Moses, as Jesus (Isa's) mother, for instance.

On the topic of jobs that women, and most Americans for that matter, won't do: today I'm working on the 11th floor of a building, and there's a lip outside where some AC equipment is located, and the access to it is through the window on this floor. So three Mexicans troop up to the floor, because the buildings owners have been having a problem with leaks coming through the windows on the 10th floor (older building) So, 2 of the Mexicans tie a rope off to one of the ac units and tie the other end around the waist of their 3rd compadre, and then they just drop him over the side of the 10th floor to dangle there with a caulk gun in his hand to try and seal the windows.

It was a hell of a thing to watch. I hope he got paid more than $20 for doing it.

There are ugly rich men and attractive rich men. The latter are in higher demand. But if the former are *really* rich, most women will happily settle.

If you threaten the children of a strong mother, particularly a Jewish one, shit'll get toxic in a hurry.

If it's a group of 4's, they all think they're too good for me.

So at a party a couple of days later, Hoffman comes up to her in regular guy clothes so she doesn't recognize him, smiles and tells her that he really wants to f*ck her.

669 Good grief. That whole spiel is literally a dozen misidentification of the same thing. "Violence" is a masculine standard? Really? No, the word you're looking for is "strength". Achievement? A demonstration of strength. Eschewal of the appearance of weakness? Maintaining strength over appearances. Adventure? Contesting your strength against challenges. Risk? The same.

Men (and plenty of women, though often in different ways) idolize strength in all its forms. Physical strength, mental strength, strength of will, strength of character. The strength to hold your family together through hard times, strength to keep trying after failure, strength to protect yourself and your loved ones. THIS is the defining characteristic of traditional masculinity. There absolutely are discussions to have about whether specific cases pervert this ideal, but trying to redefine strength into a dozen fragments and then looking at each one through a mysandric lens is foolish and dishonest.

The people pushing this crap are truly the ones with psychological disorders. They understand they lack strength in all of its forms, but instead of admitting their weakness and working to get stronger, they instead try to redefine strength into weakness and weakness into strength. It's what you see constantly in the victim mentality and crybullies. They want to lionize failure to protect oneself, surrender to circumstances, and underhanded backstabbing instead of direct confrontation to resolve conflict. This is the ideal because they lack even the strength to admit their own weakness. Welcome to the brave new world.
