The War On Men: 10 ways  masculinity is under attack

And why the elite - not women - are to blame

Men are facing a full frontal assault on their rights, health and culture like never before. The war on masculinity has never been so brutal – but it's not a war being waged by women. The attack is coming directly from the top, as the establishment desperately attempts to emasculate and disempower men in order to force women to be more dependent on the state, thereby enabling more power to be centralized and aiding the growth of big government.

I wonder if he blames the elite for making him fat?

Sorry this part lost me.

Why do women have to be dependent on anything? just because they cant "depend" on men anymore that means they turn to some other entity?

What happened to Strong independent women?


Being right wing myself these type of articles make me really mad, they make us look like sexist morons...

I'm not clicking the link, as I don't want to give infowars any traffic.

On topic: I pretty much agree with the others in here. Seems nonsense.

2) Chemical Warfare “Feminizing” Boys

Exposure to phthalates, which are found in many plastics, is “feminizing” boys by blocking normal male testosterone and causing genital abnormalities, according to scientists. “Boys exposed to high levels of these in the womb were less likely than other boys to play with cars, trains and guns or engage in “rougher” games like playfighting,” according to a BBC News report. According to Elizabeth Salter-Green, director of the chemicals campaign group CHEM Trust, phthalates are a true “gender-bender” because they lead to a reduction in “male behavior”.


I've heard this one before for sure. The "according to scientists" part puts me off since you'd think that as a news agency with some resources at their disposal, the inforwars could give away which scientists, or is it a scientific consensus.

10) Domestic Abuse Against Men

Whereas women have numerous safety nets to turn to if they become victims of domestic abuse, men have virtually none, despite the fact that domestic abuse against men is a huge and growing problem. In the UK for example, 44 per cent of domestic abuse victims are male, while more married men suffer abuse at the hands of their spouse than married women. While domestic abuse against women is constantly highlighted by the mass media, domestic abuse against men is a complete non-issue.


This and the part 2) were the only parts out of the 10 I found somewhat relevant, the rest nah. This one's a good point because it doesn't get much attention despite the psychological abuse you can receive can be very hurting too. But I dont think this is a conspiracy but just a result of women gaining power and rights in society. But we'll get over it and things'll evolve, as always. It's not like men are helpless victims in this case nor the only victims by far.

Conclusion

A totalitarian society can only survive if the male population has been gelded, emasculated and disenfranchised. With this natural bulwark against tyranny removed, the elite can centralize power and pursue collectivist tyranny unopposed. This is why men and masculinity are under assault on every level – and why both men and women should join forces to fight back against this common enemy.


My conclusion, no conspiracy, no systematic male power suppression. There's just more individuals who like the way things are run in the society and dont feel the need to make a ruckus. I'm not one of them but I dont feel like ruckus would be solution, and I have male power. I just dont use it for petty or useless things, or at least try not to.

If we are moving towards a more totalitarian society, the reason is we're too well off. What reason would you have to create a ruckus if you're satisfied?

I like the way that Mr. Dinosaur assumes that women still need protection, and that if big strong men like him don't do it they'll just have to rely on the State to do it.

Life is a hideous business, and from the background behind what we know of it peer daemoniacal hints of truth which make it sometimes a thousandfold more hideous.

Well considering Jones blubbers like a little girl the second he gets a funny feeling, he might be on to something.
