Men Behaving Badly - Why?
Many males in western societies seem to be behaving very badly these days.
They seem to be becoming more involved with
crime. They seem to be growing more dishonest. They seem to be increasingly
hostile and aggressive toward others. They seem less committed to their partners
and to their families. They are clearly doing less well in terms of their
education. And they seem to be more pre-occupied with their own narrow
self-interests than they used to be.
Why is this so?
What can possibly account for this apparent
deterioration in the behaviours of western men?
Have their genes suddenly taken a dive for the
Or are they simply responding to the way in
which western societies treat them these days?
In my view, the major cause of what seems to
be a significant deterioration in the behaviours of men is, quite simply,
Indeed, the evidence that damns feminism is
The evidence shows that feminism is not only
the primary cultural cause of the current-day bad behaviours of
men, it is also the primary cultural cause of very many other current-day
serious societal problems.
Before demonstrating to readers how it is that
feminism is largely responsible for the current bad behaviours of men, it is
important to understand the two following points.
1. Feminism - together with political
correctness - has been the most influential ideology in western societies for
the past three decades. There are no other ideologies that even come close to it
in terms of the extent to which it has penetrated western societies.
Feminism has penetrated very deeply western
governments, western laws, western social services, western universities,
western colleges, western schools, western media, western families, western
bedrooms and western minds.
And it has done so for three decades - a
decade longer than even Hitler had - with far fewer resources - in which to stir
up his mass hatred toward the Jews.
Feminism has been hugely influential.
And one of its main successes has been the
wholesale demonisation of males.
2. Political correctness has been aggressively
supported and strongly buttressed by feminists. Indeed, feminists have done
their level best to promote any activity which undermines men - particularly
white heterosexual ones.
And political correctness has been a very
useful weapon for them in this respect.
But the point here is this.
Every ill that can be blamed on political
correctness, can also be blamed on those who endorse and underpin it. And no
group has done more to foist political correctness on to western societies than
For three decades, the feminists and the
politically correct have engaged in a wholesale onslaught against white
White men have been persistently accused of
being racist by highly vocal racial activists and racial minorities, and their
history and their forefathers have been thoroughly undermined and blackened - to
the extent that many racial activists are now demanding reparations for past
Heterosexual men have been continually
portrayed as being violent, abusive, oppressors of women by mainstream feminists
and a whole plethora of abuse professionals who have a vested interest in
portraying men in this way.
Heterosexual men have also been represented by
the beautifully orchestrated gay lobby as being bigoted and fearful of their own
All men have been assaulted almost ceaselessly
by various women's groups, children's groups, social service workers, therapists
and analysts who have sought to indoctrinate the population with the view that
men are abusers of children.
The ubiquitous feminist-fearing mainstream
media have consistently sought to demonise and humiliate the entire male gender
- a typical example of which can be seen in the recent vindictive column by
Maureen Dowd in the New York Times entitled
Incredible Shrinking Y.
And the all-powerful western governments
together with the legal profession have almost disempowered men completely when
it comes to their families, their relationships and their homes, on the grounds
that women and children are often better off without them. (The
Federal Bureau of Marriage? by Professor Stephen Baskerville gives a good
insight into how this is being achieved.)
In view of all this, is it surprising to find
that men are behaving badly?
If A keeps telling B that he considers him to
be worthless, and continues to accuse him of things that he has not done, and
persistently undermines him in relation to his family and to his children, and
continually seeks to portray him as an abuser and an oppressor, who should be
surprised if B finally turns his back on A?
Indeed, who should be surprised if B decides
to give A a bloody nose?
Well. This is the kind of thing that has been
going on in western societies for a long time now thanks to the wholesale
demonisation of males by the feminists.
And many millions of men are - and have been -
responding to this by turning their backs on their own societies.
Indeed, they are not only increasingly
refusing to support their own societies, many are, in fact, responding by giving
them a bloody nose! - crime, violence etc.
Well. Let us look at some of the reasons why
western men might have become this way as a result of feminism (and, indeed, as
a result of political correctness).
1. The constant feminist-inspired demonisation
and denigration of men throughout the west has resulted not only in many of them
feeling worthless, with the result that they now reject the worthwhile values of
their own societies (with some turning to crime, drugs, irresponsible behaviours
etc) it has also undermined any reason for them to shape up.
You might as well be hung for being a sheep as
Furthermore, the ubiquitous negative
descriptions of men that continually pour out of the mainstream media simply
make many men feel quite entitled to behave in accordance with those very same
For example, I once saw a headline in a
newspaper complaining about the fact that, "Men do not do housework."
As a taunt to my partner, I cut out the
headline and stuck it on the notice board in the kitchen. But I added the
following words underneath it. "Well, if men are not doing any housework, then
neither am I!"
The point is that if men are persistently
deemed to be slothful - or whatever - then many men, with much justification,
will see no reason to behave any differently from the way in which they and
their fellow men are being depicted.
2. The western educational system has been so
heavily biased against boys for the past few decades that they are doing very
badly at school. Not only have the educationalists been using diabolically poor
teaching methods (e.g. in their teaching of reading skills) but the curricula
have been so feminised and politically corrected that boys quickly lose any
interest that they might have had in being 'educated'.
This, coupled with poor standards of
discipline, has led to our societies having to bear the burden of having
millions of undisciplined, uneducated males in their midsts.
3. The effect of feminism and political
correctness in education - e.g. in the study of History - and in the mainstream
media, where 'great white men of noble character' are hardly seen to exist any
more means that there are few good role models for boys in their growing years.
And the images of men that are daily inflicted upon young men and boys are
Is it surprising, therefore, that so many men
actually have no real concept of what a 'good man' is?
Such men do not exist in the world that is
being presented to them.
4. Thanks to the wholesale corruption of the
family courts and the "no-fault" divorce laws, men no longer have any real
motivation to devote most of their lives, their love, their money etc into
bringing up a family. Why should they - when it can all be taken away from them
at the whim of their partners?
Furthermore, prejudicial 'relationship laws' -
such as those pertaining to domestic violence and child abuse etc - make men
feel very insecure within their relationships.
And to add to all this there is the daily
carpeting of man-hatred that pours out of the feminist-dominated media telling
women and children to report their partners for abuse of some sort.
Well. There are only two main ways in which
men can deal with the relationship insecurity that all this brings about.
Firstly, they can stop caring very much about
their relationships so that they are not too hurt when they eventually break
Secondly, they can refrain completely from
committing themselves to, or from investing in, any long-term serious ones.
And, indeed, this is exactly what the research
shows western men to be doing.
5. The welfare system hotly promoted and
buttressed both by the feminists and the politically correct supports single
motherhood. And the same is true for the laws concerning child-support payments
These not only make fathers and husbands
redundant, they also encourage their very own women and children to see them in
exactly this way.
Men are, therefore, easily rejected, and they
are often also treated with contempt.
They are, after all, redundant.
And another word for 'redundant' is, of
6. Family and marital breakdown are the major
cause of misbehaviour and poor socialisation in males. Indeed, those who are
brought up without their fathers at home are far more likely ...
... to live in poverty and deprivation
... to be trouble in school
... to have more trouble getting along with others
... to have health problems
... to suffer physical, emotional, or sexual abuse
... to run away from home
... to experience problems with sexual health
... to become teenage parents
... to offend against the law
... to smoke, drink alcohol and take drugs
... to play truant from school
... to be excluded from school
... to leave school at 16
... to have poor adjustments to adulthood problems
... to attain little in the way of qualifications
... to experience unemployment
... to have low incomes
... to be on welfare
... to experience homelessness
... to go to jail
... to suffer from long term emotional and psychological problems
... to engage only in casual relationships
... to have children outside marriage or outside any partnership
But feminists have always done their best to
break up traditional families and to exclude fathers from them, because they
believe that traditional families are oppressive to women.
And this particularly huge catalogue of
societal ills that has arisen directly from their assault on marriage and family
was successfully repressed by the mainstream feminist-fearing media for two
7. The encouragement of immigration - legal
and illegal - by the left-wing politically correct (supported heavily by
feminists) has led to a breaking down of the main culture and to a large
increase in the size of the criminal underclass. This, together with all the
factors mentioned previously, has led to millions of young men engaging in crime
or in being closely associated with others who engage in it.
In the UK, one-third of all men have a
criminal conviction. In the USA, some 2 million men are in prison and another 4
million are somehow currently involved with the criminal justice system.
8. Taxes are far too high as a consequence of
the ever-burgeoning government and its ever-increasing activities. Indeed, most
western governments now appropriate some 50% of their people's purchasing power.
(Some 35% goes in taxes in one form or other, and another 15% or so is forced
out of people's pockets when they have to pay the higher prices that businesses
have to charge their customers in order to cover the costs of the 'red tape'
that governments have imposed on them.)
Well. It is women - and feminists in
particular - and other 'minorities' - through their politically-corrected
activists - who are the main supporters of big government and heavy taxation.
And the result of heavy taxation is that
people are less motivated when it comes to working for a living and, for many
men, it makes crime and sloth an even more attractive option.
Well, I could go on and make many more
connections between feminism and the poor behaviours of men.
But do I really need to?
If you glance again at the 8 points above you
will see that they allude to huge
negative influences that impact, in some way or other, upon all
males. And they each affect
all males very badly indeed.
Furthermore, every single one of these huge
negative influences directly arises from ideas and policies promoted and
buttressed by feminists.
Indeed, feminism is the main cause of the most
pressing problems facing western societies.
None of the above is to suggest that genes do
not play a part in the bad behaviours of men. They surely do - just as much as
they do with regard to the bad behaviours of women. And neither is it necessary
to make any claims about whether children are 'born good' - and are corrupted by
society - or 'born bad' - and need to be disciplined and socialised.
The point is that we do know that the way in
which societies are constructed, the values that they hold, and the methods
through which their aims are sought, have a great bearing on the way in which
the people within them behave - e.g. just look at the effects of fatherlessness
And when an ideology has been hugely
pervasive, influential and dominant for three whole decades it should not be
allowed to escape from being seen as significantly responsible for the social
consequences that are very clearly associated with it.
Furthermore, if western men continue to be
persistently attacked, accused, vilified, undermined and demonised, disempowered
within their families and discriminated against through the justice system,
their behaviours are likely to grow considerably worse!
And if feminists continue to pursue their aims
without regard to the way in which they are alienating millions of men, my guess
is that in the not-too-distant future both they and their supporters (e.g. in
the media, in academia and in government) are going to be in for a very nasty
Finally, given that feminists have ruthlessly
pursued their aims without regard to the well-being of men, why should men not
now do the very same?
For example, why should men strive
particularly hard to support their families given that some 50% of them will
eventually lose them; and much else besides - with a further significant
percentage remaining in unhappy marriages because they have no realistic
alternatives? Why should they labour to set themselves up for so much serious
Why should men work for long hours? -
particularly if they have onerous jobs and given that the state will take much
of their earnings in taxes.
Why should men with limited resources bother
to save any money when their governments will tax it and subject it to
Why should men commit themselves to one
particular woman when so many are now available for fun and frolics?
Why should men not seek hours of pleasure from
superficial pursuits - such as those deriving from their various gadgets, toys,
sports and videogames? Do not women spend many of their hours gawping at
celebrities and soap operas, and thinking about fashion, cosmetics and romantic
And what, exactly, are men supposed to be
Why should men not be aggressive or offensive
toward women given that women are nowadays aggressive and offensive toward them?
Indeed, why should men pursue 'nobler' aims
when these are persistently undermined by feminists and their governments?
The bad behaviours of men mostly reflect the
fact that western men are now following more their own desires and their own
predilections. And they are caring less about how this may affect others.
In fact, they are doing exactly what the
feminist handbooks and many women's magazines have been urging women to do for
