The Way of Men

This book is written by the author Jack Donovan. It's about the fundamental nature of masculinity or manhood, how and why it evolved to aid in human survival. The author rejects Judeo-Christian moral and feminist interpretations of masculinity; he takes a raw, amoral look on the subject. The book is, therefore, somewhat controversial; feminists and moralists seem to be the ones who love talking about masculinity the most, trying to twist it for their own agendas. The author points this out in the book.

I watched the video, Lyssa. I couldn't help but notice how much he reminds me of Aurini haha; the whole exaggerated mannerisms - seemed pretentious. But apart from that, his book is excellent.

I still cant believe hes homosexual, i guess there are a few like the Youtube user "Fringeelements" who arent willing to indulge in an age that caters to them or at least to the same degree as the others...

Or perhaps they indulge in the destruction of the modern system.

Boyd Rice in your sig.? The Church of Satan, etc.?

One of the 11 satanic rules;
"Do not complain about anything to which you need not subject yourself."

sounds like the MRA...

Why did you remove your signature?

That Boyd Rice quote speaking of Nature's eternal perfection smacked of MRA romanticism, and your code of honour praising nature's brutality are at cross-ends; shows me you haven't really thought things through.

And sounded whinny where?

How did it smack of MRA romanticism?

I removed Boyd Rice's signature because I slightly altered the quote. He wrote at the end, " Nature's eternal Fascism ". I don't have anything against political fascism, but I thought the word ' brutality ' would be more suiting.

Dude, you once told her it was a just wierd nitch to share page long quotes and so on, as though it has no value whatever so ever because you got nothing out of it. Everything must be self-echoing to some degree, and scripts give no feedback loops. This is kind of the case?

Well you probably knew, just picking up on patterns. I quite like it, others possibly frustrated.

Give me your opinions on bi-sexual males, or even straight gay sex like prion rape.

I think I've actually done it. Congratulations, you have now stared into the abyss. Possibly trigger growth. Anything else would be anti-Nietzschean.

That is actually appropriate, barely 19.

Are you referring to me uploading the ' Sayings of Nietzsche ' to my philosophy site? I'm confused....

Dunno, just rolling a dice, seeing if it would strike a chord. Make of it as you will. Where is your philosophy site?
