A False Dichotomy

“A men’s conference would focus much less on women and much more on how to be a man.”

I’ve already discussed this quote here, which came from The Spearhead, but would like to briefly expand on it thanks to Rob Judge. Rob says,

Genuinely loving women isn’t something you “do;” it’s something you ARE

In regards to quote number one, Rob hits the nail on the head, so hard, that he reveals the false choice presented in the original quote — that focusing on women is somehow opposed to or exclusive of “how to be a man” — a completely undefined phrase 99.999999% of the time that is just “supposed to” have some sort of meaning without any effort or thought given to the matter.

Like the word “good”. What is “good”? Ever thought about that? What about “evil”?

Anyway, in the (paraphrased) words of Nathaniel Branden, viewing women as the greatest of nature’s creations is central to life on earth as a man. It is central to being male.

The same is true in reverse: viewing man (males), as the greatest of nature’s creations is central to life on earth as a woman. It is central to being female.

These are thoughts I think echoed by Steve Mayeda as well.

In any case, learning about, and being interested in women, in all regards, is not only not at odds with becoming the man you were meant to be, your ideal self, but a necessary, and integral building block.

It is 100% natural, normal, and proper — and you should take no shame in it. The person who made the original comment, unfortunately, thinks this is somehow contradictory when it comes to “learning how to be a man”, leaving me to seriously doubt whether this guy has ever given serious thought to the meaning of that statement and what it implies.

    You need to stop objectifying women and promoting premarital sex and get right with God before he wreaks his vengeful wrath upon you. Congratulations on being one of the premier promoters of the moral degeneration of America and the world at large. May God have mercy on your soul!

          Yes, so much so that I have actually taken the time to understand the meanings of those words. I love my life, I love my liberty, and I love my property. This blog is not a place for you to intellectually shit all over the place with your village idiot nonsense. Please fuck off.

          This blog is Anthony’s, yet you presume that you have some sort of right to comment on it as you wish and complain when Anthony threatens to censor your idoicy, on HIS blog? Your sarcastic comment just highlights your lack of understanding of the words you use.
