“The first important distinction here is to point out clearly that there is no rift between AVFM and the MGTOW philosophy. AVFM supports MGTOW, the marriage strike, ghosting and permanent bachelorhood, along with every other phenomenon now visible in a culture of men who have seen through the façade of the Matrix and opted for the road less traveled.”
:What we (and by we I mean all those who subscribe to the AVFM mission) do not support is class hatred, gender supremacy and gender ideology. Those would be the very things that have come to characterize a strident minority of men who have taken up the MGTOW banner as a flag of war against women and all men who disagree with them. It is ultimately, like all forms of “justified” hate, a war on themselves and a war on young men sucked into the pit of their perpetual acrimony.”
Do you not see what Elam is doing here? He is setting up a dichotomy where “his” way is the right way and those that don’t yield to his authority are misogynists. And of course his boy, Captain Capitalism is basically saying that MGTOW’s are sexless losers. And, shit, in my case it might be true but it’s really none of your business. But here’s something for you, go read Captain Capitalism, and Paul Elam and Judgy Bitch. Then read my stuff. Look at whose dropping cunt, bitch and whore every 5 seconds. Whose the misogynist now? I already know the counter argument, Well, ah you just have better rhetorical discipline but we can mindread your kyriarchical misogyny of the highest order.
Later on, he quotes one of his old articles…
“In that light, the path they are on is not really the road to manhood, but simply a retreat from the effacing malice woven into the very fabric of their developmental lives. And it takes them not to safe ground, but directly into a dismal culture of shallowness and self-indulgence; a realm of options without obligations; of self-gratification without self-awareness or self-discipline. It is the death march of the western male, destined for a withering end ensured by intellectual, psychological and moral atrophy.”
Where have we heard this before? Is Elam trying to make you a “good man”? Is this some of the “man-up” bullshit that Kay Hymowitz and all the other trad cons try to bully men with? Is he next going to say “Don’t ask what your country can do for you, Instead ask what you can do for Paul Elam.” Is he going to try to define manhood and then shit all over anyone who disagrees with his authoritarian viewpoints?
Okay, so I’m pointing out the problems with his “leadership.” But do I have a plan? No, I never said I did, but I’m not here with snake oil asking for donations either…
