Emasculating Little Boys
By Max Ross
China, Babylon, Greece, Rome, Britain, America. Every great civilization the world has ever known was envisioned, created, built, defended and lead by men. It was great men that crafted the Code of Hammurabi, the Bible, Sun Tzu’s The Art of War, the Magna Carta, and the US Constitution. And until recently simple, average men lead their homes and soundly provided direction, order and protection for the members of their households. They were a solid, stable presence which their wives and children could look to for strength and reassurance. Whether they were farmers, factory workers, professionals or soldiers they were usually the undisputed masters of their families and these beneficent patriarchs provided what women frequently do not: authoritative leadership.
It is not that women lack intelligence or ambition (plenty of wives are far better ‘thinkers’ then their husbands…) or that males in some vague sense are naturally superior to females. The fact is that the genders function differently. Women are primarily process oriented while men are usually goal oriented. By our basic nature, women are seemingly more patient with children, cooking, nursing, teaching, communicating ideas and feelings, etc. because these are tasks which are ‘process’ intensive. Men by contrast enjoy a project. They revel in analyzing a problem, making a plan and then seeing it through to fruition. Most men love the feeling of a ‘job well done.’ Which raises a question: Is it more important to be ‘busy’ or to be ‘effective?’ This subtle difference, so pronounced in many areas of life confirms what history has already taught us: that men may make better leaders if for no other reason they are naturally impatient and regularly intolerant of failure.
Examples of this male trait abound throughout our culture. Men such as Vince Lombardi, legendary coach of the Green Bay Packers: “Winning isn’t everything, it’s the only thing” or George S. Patton, one of the greatest military minds of the 20th century: “Wars may be fought with weapons, but they are won by men.” The ability to think, reason and take decisive action is most certainly not a uniquely male quality, it is simply males are inclined to think in terms of completion and non-completion, this or that, win or lose.
From the dawn of history, ‘boys’ in most cultures were raised to be ‘men.’ Most education was character training: hard work, honor, duty, frugality, morality, and defense. But now the ‘red meat’ of character has been replaced by the ‘mother’s milk’ of feminism. Books about adventure have largely been replaced by essays about ‘feelings’ and situational difficulties; the sort of drivel that drives grown men to tears in its irrelevancy. Their claim was that education needed to be ‘more fair’ to girls but the truth is far darker as their aim was the psychological and societal emasculation of young males.
Today the basic creed of character is not taught to our boys. In this pro-female/ anti-male environment our sons, full of energy and adventure, are forced to ‘sit’ and ‘listen’ while a female teacher tells them in subtle, insidious ways how completely inferior they are to girls. The natural instincts of boys being exploration, competition and ‘hands on’ learning, are now discouraged from the earliest ages. And when these enthusiastic, vibrant males fail to be the acquiescent bump on a log demanded by their man-loathing instructors, they are labeled disciplinary problems, punished and eventually pumped to the gills with Ritalin.
“We are a generation of men raised by women. I’m wondering if another woman is the answer we need.”
Millions of young men are entering adolescence and adulthood with a deep sense of self loathing. Anger, frustration and failure are the traits these beaten and defeated young men exhibit. Popular film and music detail their journey from boyhood to manhood in a world dominated by an ideology that defines their gender as little more than sperm donors, conscripts and deadbeat dads. It is a brutal and terrifying disparity when compared to the last two generations of men. Our grandfathers defeated fascism and their sons won the Cold War, but somehow we lost the battle for the West.
The result is that many men are realizing they were raised on a politically correct pack of lies designed and shaped to rob them of their manhood. Some are confused, others are looking for answers and more than a few of us are very, very pissed off…

The misandric fembots that infect the educational system is a crime and a travesty.
