We’ve been seeing this happen for a while now. Here’s all of the truth out in the open, in its hideous glory:
- TheRawness: Update and Questions (published 2012)
The typical “it’s us against them” shtick. The saviors versus the villains. The enlightened versus the ignorant. The truthtelling, victimized warriors of political incorrectness versus the lying elite overlords of political correctness. The lone Byronic hero who discovers everything he believes is a lie and must now embark on his lonely, heroic quest to fight for the cause of truth against insurmountable odds, fighting an army composed of feminists, white knights, beta males, liberals, traditional conservatives, or whatever other bogeymen he concocted to feel superior to, armed only with his newfound knowledge of evolutionary psychology and his seduction skills. It’s the narrative that makes life easiest for a certain type of reader and offers the most ego [protection]. It’s the narrative that makes him feel most comfortable once he plugs himself into it and makes the world make the kind of sense he wants it to make.
- The Manosphere is Lost (published 2013)
I predict within a couple years, the word “manosphere” will attract as much stench as the word “PUA.” There are two reasons for it: (1) The arrival of geeks who have no game, and (2) The infiltration of women.
There were three guys who first noticed this decline: Bronan, Danger & Play, and Nate. They mocked the “manospambots,” their obsession with the concepts “hypergamy” and “solipsism,” and their flocking to a community not for their own betterment but to rationalize their failures. Many of these new arrivals are married and so have a natural hostility to game and the bachelor’s option to sleep with more than one woman per year.
The flood of these beta males, who have never approached a woman in their lives, coincided with the arrival of women. It’s known that women try to poison places where men congregate, but trailing them was a long line of beta males and white knights who are desperate for their attention. It becomes a feedback loop where the arrival of women encourages more weak men to follow which then encourages even more women to come. Instead of keeping them out, some manosphere veterans are welcoming them with open arms. There is a large subset of men who now participate in the sphere primarily to get female commenter attention. It’s pathetic.
- Manosphere Victim Complex?
The only issue is with any large movement or group is that it inevitably gets diluted by the lowest common denominator, that is, a group is only as strong as its weakest members. That and the tendency of knowledge to be hoarded or kept away from the population at large by more unscrupulous types.
- The Manosphere is Dead, and You Have Killed It (published 2014)
The manosphere today is primarily comprised of losers, weirdos and freaks. Cuckold fetishists who orbit Red Pill Women™ begging for stories of them getting fucked by their oh-so-alpha hubbies. Keyboard players who’d rather hate-masturbate to the latest Jezebel article then do something interesting with their lives. 30-year old virgins who lecture other men about “hypergamy” and “solipsism.” Plain Jane groupies who flash their panties at men in exchange for little pats on the head. And they’ll all gladly support frauds, so long as those frauds tell them what they want to hear.
The manosphere is the intellectual equivalent of plucking turds out of a toilet bowl, then waving them in everyone’s faces screaming “LOOK AT ALL THIS SHIT! DOESN’T THIS SUCK???!!1″
- Why I am “Resigning” from the Manosphere (published 2014)
Secondly, there are too many frauds in the manosphere to count.
They are men with large followings who don’t get laid writing about charisma. There is a fool writing about TRT who takes counterfeit testosterone.
Third, there are too many articles complaining about feminism.
Fourth, the manosphere doesn’t stand for anything so much is stands against things.
Take away articles about feminists, and what does the manosphere stand for?
The manosphere is a reactionary movement. I am not a reactionary. I am a man of action.
The consensus here is that the so-called “manosphere” is dead. “Manosphere” was a term for a loose-knit network of bloggers and writers who roughly agreed on certain things.
When things die, they rot.
What is dead about the manosphere?
- The rehashing of everything we already knew and bitched about pertaining to feminists
- Pretentious fakers, whiners, and big talkers riding on coattails
This stuff has all been caricatured and ridiculed by people who disagree with what most of us know because frankly, it’s ridiculous. Despite this, the mentally retarded among us who lack self-awareness have been unable to divorce the container from the truth it contains, so they continue bandying on about “red pills” and such, and dwelling in the same primordial muck, never to evolve.
Just a proposed rule for anyone who ever planned on starting a “manosphere” blog:
Don’t promise anything you can’t back up.
Otherwise you get no substance, just a lot of hot air… This is something that megalomaniac narcissists and sociopaths are unable to resist doing in any venture, and it’s not unique to the “manosphere” at all.
If you don’t promise anything, you don’t have to deliver. It’s as simple as that.
If you absolutely have to turn to the “manosphere” to find friends or be accepted among otherwise healthy and normal people, then there is probably something wrong with you. Not that some of the writers here wouldn’t make good friends or aren’t healthy or normal, but based on the drama that transpired, it only reaffirms my hunch that there are very few writers I would be willing to meet in person.
When things start to rot, the parasites jump ship.
What is going to be left behind in the wake of the “manosphere”?
- Vital truths pertaining to just about everything
- Individuals who know and experienced these truths firsthand
This is what the so-called “manosphere” was like before it was inundated at least what I feel it was like when I began lurking sometime between ’09 and ’10. It was never really a “club” of any sort, much in the way that hardcore punk started. Because there is little ego-validation going around in the early life cycle, the group has a strong immunity.
Once it became inundated with people who saw only the form and got their egos some metaphorical blowjobs, they forgot all about the substance. Predictably so, it all went straight to the shitter. This is simply part of the natural life cycle of things.
As for the writers who aren’t here to puff themselves up and feel important about bullshit (big fish in a small pond syndrome), there will be a lot of confusion for people uncomfortable with change and having their egos fellated.
I see this upheaval as an opportunity for renewal, a re-evaluation of what we want to do, where we want to go, and where we are needed to contribute. When something dies, it means going back to the bare basics, taking with us what survived and was valuable from the beginning.
What will grow from this new fertile soil?
- Individuals who have the means to understand and disseminate these truths in their own way
- Individuals who can benefit from study and practical application of these truths
In time we’ll see who survives this little upheaval, with or without the “manosphere.”
For example, this blog could be gone tomorrow for all we know. My site could be gone in about a year when the domain name expires. I won’t cry, neither should you. Chances are I’ll be creating something else. Same goes for any other writer here worth their salt. Their projects will survive to stand another day, and it only goes to show how much integrity they had from the beginning.
This is an exciting time.
