I love this term.
Occasionally, the “manosphere” and some of the other parties on the alt-Right have a dust-up. (Sometimes hilarity ensues.) The critiques that the reactionary and the traditionalist rightists register against the manosphere during these dust-ups are generally valid ones. There is, for instance, no real defense of “pick-up artistry” from the standpoint of someone who takes the idea of community, much less the idea of morality, seriously….
Of course picking on the PUAs is picking on the lowest-common-denominator of manosphere thought. The movement as a whole is bigger than snake oil e-books and midget mestizo game coaches….
Even in the crassest forums of the PUAs you can occasionally see glimpses of impulses worth salvaging, worth encouraging even. There are people attracted to “game” simply because they are tired of being sadsack losers who have no control over their own fortunes, romantic or otherwise. You have young men groping for some sense of personal agency, of personal efficacy. That’s not an unworthy gesture…..
I linked to these because we red-pillers have ourselves a rosy view of all marriage and dating prior to the 1950s.
Perhaps you can draw some new truths from them.
I’m tired of seeing this Peter Pan BS in the manosphere. Men age. Men age terribly. There are no current male sex symbols beyond middle age. I respect men enough to tell them the truth. Look at the average older man, he looked better in youth. There is no magic pill. You will age too.
Brad Pitt in his prime vs. Now, post-Wall. Such a terrible loss.
Men have a Wall too, but it can be kept at bay a decade or so longer on average, perhaps (considering genetics).
It still exists.
Timescale based on the average male;
25-35 hair loss – includes overall thinning
35-45 weight gain, beer bellies and man boobs (reduce alcohol and other sugars)
45+ back ache, knee pain, other joint issues preventing you from doing certain sports (supplements and surgery)
Anyone over 50? Risk of accidental injury goes way up.
Studies are random sampling I pulled up and read quickly because I don’t get paid for this.
The hormonal malfunction is a big issue and quite the norm for both sexes. Everyone knows by now about testosterone drops in men, you could supplement. However, that isn’t all you need to concern yourself with.
I will take the high ground and leave comment on sexual performance to other people. Except to say merely having erections become infrequent (compared to the person’s own youth) and when maintained, softer (artherosclerosis and alcoholism make this worse). This happens gradually to every single man because 40 is not the new 20 for men either. Please don’t delude yourselves like the feminists. Please? We all have telomeres.
In general, don’t be fat while you’re young or you’re screwed. It’s easiest to shift weight while young because of hormones. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19540307
Be wary of dosing yourself with too much testosterone. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25741229 “conversion to estradiol by aromatase converts the androgen to estrogen activity”
Sadly, men have a prime. Deluding yourself by pointing the finger at women (who also age, duh) won’t help you personally.
“The loss of muscle mass is one of the most striking characteristics of the ageing process.” http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3955329/
Invest in good skincare, stress hits men worse. No one looks good with a face of excess wrinkles. http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2014/09/140910132532.htm
See aging as a neutral thing. Be stoic about it. Hence why I’m pleading with you to drop the Peter Pan myth. You aren’t helping yourself or your sex (if male). http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2014/02/140220095001.htm
Get cardio check-ups if you do supplement T. http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2014/11/141112115930.htm Be wary if you have family history.
“The rate of physiologic, or molecular, aging differs between individuals in part because of exposure to ‘gerontogens’, i.e., environmental factors that affect aging,”http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2014/05/140528133209.htm Tip: SPF with both UVA and UVB filters for air pollutants.
Finally, fertility. If I were a man, I’d have frozen my sperm age 18. Honestly, you guys have it so easy for method and you don’t do it! Why??? If the manosphere’s “Have it All” dream were to hypothetically come true for you as an individual, your children with your (ideal) 18-year old blushing virgin bride would be far healthier if you used your youngest sperm. If you are even considering possibly having kids, someday, get your little soldiers frozen pronto, there is even a name for this mutation issue. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paternal_age_effect You can’t blame this one on women! Your insurance policy is as easy as masturbating into a cup! I wish we women had it that easy, use your advantage.
For general fertility issues conceiving at all (naturally, as you assume you could);
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3253726/ “Age-related infertility will continue to be a problem. A basic understanding of the issues is critical for health care professionals so that they can effectively counsel patients who are considering a delay in childbearing for social reasons or for those seeking fertility treatments. This review details the changes in fertility seen in the aging male.”
Surely, the use of these references has helped you to wake up to the real dangers of this? This Peter Pan, Dorian Gray-style denial? If I hated men, I wouldn’t tell you any of this out of spite, and let you find out by yourselves. I am not trying to tell you what to do, I am trying to point out the medical fact that an older man is physiologically inferior to his youthful self. Factor this into your choices and decision-making, since you’re classically the logical sex that acknowledges hard truths. Prove it!
Isn’t any etiquette rule a patriarchal construct?
Deleting tweets, a sign of strength.

Nope, that’s not satire. It’s 100 percent authentic and unfiltered lunacy:
