The Manosphere For Dummies

The term “manosphere” is generally applied to any game or men’s right blog that goes against mainstream thinking of pedestalizing women at the expense of men. Since there’s no central authority, that leaves some guys who stumble onto one of our sites left wondering what the deal is. It doesn’t help that there are wide variations in focus between one manosphere blog and the next.

I have found an article that effortlessly ties in all our beliefs. It makes it clear what we stand for while offering one devastating argument after another against feminist thinking. It’s called The Misandry Bubble.

It’s a rational, well-sourced work that explains exactly how men in the West are being destroyed, specifically beta males. The article is long but necessary reading for every male citizen of the United States.

“Beta males who were told to follow a responsible, productive life of conformity found that they were swindled.”

The author describes the climate that gave rise to game and guys like me, even though he gets a bit moral about its application. By teaching you game, I hope that you will avoid a fate that befall many men in America. In case you don’t want to learn game, the article will scare you straight from getting married:

“There are large numbers of middle-class men who were upstanding citizens, who were subjected to divorce against their will, had their children taken from them, pay alimony masked as child support that is so high that many of them have to live out of their cars or with their relatives, and after job loss from economic conditions, are imprisoned simply for running out of money.”

I’ve never seen an article that so thoroughly destroys feminism in one swoop. It made me wish I had written it myself. Some choice quotes:

“The word ‘misogynist’ has expanded to such an extreme that it is the Pavlovian response to anything a ‘feminist’ feels bad about, but cannot articulate in an adult-like manner.”

“The ‘feminist’ media’s attempt to normalize ‘cougarhood’ is evidence of gasping desperation to package failure as a desirable outcome, which will never become mainstream due to sheer biological realities.”

“The obligation of working-age people to support the elderly should not be socialized in order to subsidize women who chose not to reproduce.”

He even cites expatriation as a method to subvert feminism, something I recently hinted at in You Can’t Get Laid In The USA.

I’ll be the first admit this is a depressing article for showing how men have been crushed in the past 40 years, but at the very end he offers hope by predicting the end of the feminist movement. Either feminism dies or it takes the whole of Western society with it. The game will change with its demise, but by that point I’ll be an old man with a duffel bag of Cialis banging teenage prostitutes somewhere in Latin America. I’ll let the next generation figure it out.

Why does George Soros fund feminism in every country except Israel?
Do you think that ‘Rape Culture’ and the ‘Wage Gap’ are the first things the Jews ever lied about?
Do you think people deny the holocaust out of ‘Hatred’?
Feminism was created by the Jews to destroy Gentile societies.

Look at this

http://www.bt.dk/udland/breivik-terror-foerer-til-19-anholdelser

Breivik has one hell of a huge cock, as the linked picture reveals

Why a guy like this threw his life away without even leaving any offspring
How on earth did he not just enjoy what life would have had to offer?? Hot sex with cock hungry scandinavian queens

Suggestions?

@ harman hajy. You have to look pretty hard to notice something that just might just be an optical illusion. Do you often observe men’s crotches ?

That article/post was so good, I still have the blog in my RSS reader, even though he only seems to do about 2 posts a year.

Some of your writings have been fighting the good fight recently, Roosh, but I wish the two/three camps PUA, MRA, and MGTOW would come together and realize they are far more alike than they are different.

The PUA camp views MRA/MGTOW as bitter losers, incorrectly assuming alpha game creates a impenetrable shield against rape accusations and/or ‘I’m not happy’ divorces and asset theft. Meanwhile, the MRA camp views PUAs as children that can’t think rationally. Unfortunately, their level of vitriol is alienating to many, and otherwise damaging to their cause.

As with most things, a balanced approach is best. It’s important to realize that women aren’t an enemy; they are a pleasure to partake in when one chooses. However, it’s important to realize that success with women is only a small part of being your own man. Don’t allow yourself to be blinded by the pussy to the point where you find yourself chewing on the barrel of a shotgun when you are 45 after the wife ran off with the kids and all your money.

@roosh The author traces “rising crime” along with other societal ills to a common cause when in fact crime rates in America are at a 40 year low despite high unemployment and rising levels of poverty. I’m thinking if he got this wrong what else in his article is just to feed his perception ?
I’m not saying he’s wrong but he is definitely lazy.

Depressing article.

Nonetheless, the only thing fueling feminism and the decay of America are beta males who are buying into the system. They are the ones pedestalizing women, spending money on women, marrying, getting mortgages, white-knighting, working cube jobs to pay taxes that support the corrupt government & feminists, engineering weapons that allow America to export “femi-democracy” & other filth.

So maybe beta males do deserve to be destroyed for their lack of vision and weakness.

Feminism will die because it eats its power base: beta males. Without beta males, there goes Western society. History repeats itself and there will be another Dark Age.

I think it’s a cylic thing that Western society is doomed to repeat.

And #9 and #11, you can find any “roissy” link by simply inserting “heartiste” where roissy was previously. The brilliant roissy has maintained his archives completely intact with this one simple change to any link address.

the misandry bubble article is funny. i think america’s “societal ills” have more to do our declining global economic competitiveness, lagging schools, bad policy choices (outside of the pro-feminist agenda) etc. etc. etc. at least try to account for this stuff. but hey, whatever lets you sleep at night.

Roosh,

He has also issued a call to activism, exactly one year later :

http://www.singularity2050.com/2011/01/the-time-has-arrived.html

This spans both Game awareness-building, as well as MRA legal-system activism.

Read this awhile back and it has opened my eyes more than any pua/mra thing I have ever come across. Then I also read roissy’s entries on his new blog (both new and old) which supports “The Misandry Bubble” 100%.

Whats great about both is that they prove WHY game works!

Doesn’t matter if you see the information as misogynistic, there are gems of truth that you will never hear from your father or even your grandfather!

I am only 22 but when I talked to a 30 year old American about the info that I learned from all of this, and how women are hypergamous and not monogomous, he said “Wow! if I knew about what you know about women, I wouldn’t have lost a house to my ex fiance!” He told me to not commit and focus on my career. He also told me that to give feminism the finger, you need to say that you don’t need a woman, and stay single.

When I talked to a 39 year old woman (she was attractive but married) about how there are going to be more cougars, because more men like me are realizing that marriage is a crock of shit, and how men are being cuckolded, how men coming back from Iraq to more heartache (cheating wife),and how as many women cheat as men do (wasn’t as blunt about this as I was with the American, because I didn’t want to sound insulting to women). She told me I was paranoid and jaded against women, but she said I was smart and she agreed with me. She agreed that the court is not fair against men (Canadian family court is not as brutal, but it’s still unfair). She said that I am a good guy, and that if she is in town next year and I am still single, she will have some young female co workers to introduce me to.

Honestly, women are not wanting to fill their gender roles (being a mother, cook, barely leaving the house), so why should us men fill our gender roles (provider, chivalry, beast of burden)?

Seriously, shamming men of having peter pan syndrome and telling them to “man up” would be like me telling a female lawyer student to shut the fuck up, get back in the kitchen and make me a god damn sammich! Both parties find it insulting! Men realize this, but many women don’t!

Whats sad is I have told my friends some of this, but they are AFC’s who have had 1 or 2 girls in their lives (both LTR) and laughed at me after telling them this. It will really hurt me if they suffer the same fate as the men described in the Misandry Bubble.

You can have a lustful, loving relationship without having to get married, remember this when a girlfriend gives you “marry me or I am going to leave you!” bullshit.

I agree that it’s the fault of the American male in the first place, starting with things like beta fathers doing the “Daddy’s Little Princess” routine all the way to beta college nerds doing full-blown white knighting of undeserving skanks. Thank you, though, for the article and link.

I second # 19, and this post.
The Misandry Bubble is the best thing I have read so far in the manosphere that ties all of the elements together. (BTW, misandry is finally starting to register as a word in many spell checks, but manosphere is not – wonder how long it will be).

I wish that author would write more. I have it bookmarked, and I believe it is ideal to send to feminists or doubting thomas white knights as an intro to manosphere ideals.

Another person who I would go so far as to call the Godfather of Modern Game, and who gets little credit, is Tom Leykis. Go to leykis online and you can download years worth of his Los Angeles radio show from the 2000’s. It’s awesome stuff. All of it is laying out the foundation of game, and he has thousands of female callers that verify every word of every theory. If anyone doubted before, as to the true nature of women, go download a few months of those radio shows and listen to those female callers for yourself.

Roissy is a genius writer and cuts like a saber into the heart of darkness that is the female id. Every man over 15 should read his entire archive.

Roosh is like the ground General, a true tactician, long on specifics and field reports and shorter on the keyboard philosophizing. The perfect action catalyst to Roissy’s abstractions.

If you go through all of that material, and throw in the Delusion Damage archives, plus some Sun Tzu and Robert Greene, and Dale Carnegie, then get off your ass and apply it, you will be unstoppable in all aspects of your life.

I used to think “game” was just a cheap way to get laid using fancy linguistic tricks.

It does something far more important – it opens a young man’s eyes to society’s dogma and lies, and allows him to connect dots and see how many other things are lies. How it’s all just sticks and carrots designed to make us work hard all our lives and raise the new generation of workers. It makes one feel that all those instincts he had about how wrong our society was, did not make him crazy after all. They are the crazy ones.

Once you have freed yourself from the endless, petty expectations of women in LTRs, you are more free than most guys out there. But you lose the satisfaction of being a patriarch and building a family legacy if that’s your thing.

The conclusion popular in the manosphere, that I subscribe to as well, is that one should work hard, save their money, start a small business that can be done online, move abroad, pay as little taxes as possible, and only marry a foreign woman if at all. Unfortunately these steps are necessary to right the wrongs, and they fall on our shoulders. We are similar to the generation of men who had to fight brutally for worker’s rights, unions, and such. They had their lives turned upside down, so that future generations could be fat and happy. We have to boycott feminists, the tax structure that supports them, and marriage under feminist laws.

@17; Feminism is but one facet of progressivism. That, in it’s entirety, is what needs repeal for America once again to become civilized.
