Men Are Being Systematically Emasculated In America Today

In addition to all the other problems Americans face today, the following article highlights 32 staggering statistics about the systematic demoralization of our culture: specifically the emasculation of our men. The article did not even mention the recent study that found 40% of all households now have a female as the primary breadwinner or that the wage gap between men and women is still widening and at a shocking 75.5 cents on the dollar. In other words, women not only are bringing home the bacon, but they are having to work excessively more hours to do it. Not to mention the fact that they still have the main burden of childbearing, childcare, and housework to tend with.

What is wrong with men in America? Why isn't our country producing lots of strong, independent, hard working men of character like it once did? Well, many believe that it starts at a very young age. Society has told them that it is okay to be a "slacker". Today, far too many of our young men are far more interested in their various addictions (beer, drugs, sex, video games, gambling, etc.) than they are in starting a family. In America today, the percentage of men in prison is at an all-time high, the percentage of men with a job is near an all-time low and the percentage of children living without a father is at an all-time high. Do we have a crisis on our hands?

How do we know when a nation is under judgement by God?

For, behold, the Lord, the Lord of hosts, doth take away from Jerusalem and from Judah the stay and the staff, the whole stay of bread, and the whole stay of water.

2-3 The mighty man, and the man of war, the judge, and the prophet, and the prudent, and the ancient, The captain of fifty, and the honourable man, and the counsellor, and the cunning artificer, and the eloquent orator.

4 And I will give children to be their princes, and babes shall rule over them.

5 And the people shall be oppressed, every one by another, and every one by his neighbour: the child shall behave himself proudly against the ancient, and the base against the honourable.

8 For Jerusalem is ruined, and Judah is fallen: because their tongue and their doings are against the Lord, to provoke the eyes of his glory.

9 The shew of their countenance doth witness against them; and they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not. Woe unto their soul! for they have rewarded evil unto themselves.

12 As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths.

The destruction of real/honorable men, is God's first judgement upon a nation. When non-Christians speak the truth before the Christians do, it is another judgement, this nation can be saved, but it the people that need to be fixed, not our policies.

-Isaiah 3

It ain't nothing new. If

It ain't nothing new. If Isaiah wrote about the sins of his contemporary leaders -- who failed use their words and their deeds for good, who were such disastrous fathers as to let their children oppress them, and such failed men as to feel beneath any woman -- it speaks volumes. We're still failing in God's eyes. Still under His judgement. He tried to create several pure societies, and they all failed. We keep f-ing up and He keeps judging. Does anyone want off the merry-go-'round? Can anyone say, Jesus and say, "done with that"?

God decided he was mistaken and we were hopeless; he sent Jesus to make a point of it. No more judgement. He decided to make His way to us, without judgement, without shame. Just, "Hey, Joe, you want to be free?"

"Yeah."

"Okay, you're good to go. Come along with me."

"Okay, but I'm going to dodge and duck and let children and women get the better of me for a good part of my life."

"No problem. I got some good kids and some good women taking up your slack. When you come around, I got some other business I'll set them loose on. Then I got some messy business I'd like you on. Of course..when you're ready...when you're done blaming kids and women...then I got some gnarly stuff for you. You just let me know, okay?"

"Sure 'nough."

Careful what you wish for

Whenever I see slackers, goths, guidos, juiceheads, metalheads, geeks, freaks, and throw in anybody else you want... I know one thing and one thing that matters:

At least they are not goose-stepping around in a uniform looking me over to see what they can turn me in for.

I am getting tired of this "conservative" oriented blather about how people should be all for the family and "standing up". Look, there are two things you have to consider:

1. In practice most people will stand up when a situation calls for it. I have seen the worse of the worst slackers do the right thing when they needed to. Roughly 80 percent will. So stop worrying about how somebody else is living their life. Leave that stuff for the old codgers who helped the GOP screw Ron Paul out of the nomination. They have that blackened little mindset down to a science.
2. All that "being for the family", "standing up", "being a man" thing might seem wholesome in the context of self respect. But where have we seen it in practice? Hitler Youth were answering to such rhetoric. Yeah "be a real man" - OK. And who gets to define what a real man is? I would bet the same people touting that would say that a soldier and cops who follow all orders are real men. Look at what all those "real men" are doing to the world. Oh put the video game controller down and say... use your computer skills to join the NSA? You get the picture?

I see this mainly with the so-called conservatives, constantly griping about kids, emasculation, etc. Trust me, the moment you can browbeat people into some construct of "how to be", that "how to be" is NOT going to be anything friendly towards individual liberty nor anything hostile to the state. In history it never played out for anything positive in the long run.

So, if you want to slap the mohawk off the punk kid, that's your opinion. But do you see people like that beating people up for kicks and then charging them with assault? People who do that are in nice neat uniforms and have nice short hair.

Is it good that we see people around 20 who don't drive because they have no motivation to "grow up"? No. But at least it's one less kid who can drive the truck that you can be put on against your will.

Finally, all this talk about "emasculation". We need to accept that "having a pair" is a mindset based on how you handle things and not how you look and act. Tell me, who has the bigger balls: a door kicker in Iraq kicking ass and taking names for 'Merica and not thinking twice about it or perhaps someone like Bradley Manning?

I ask this and remember how one of the most many men I knew, someone who took viagra while not needing it and was proud of it, someone who took pride in killing people, someone who brags about all the women he "bagged", threatened to kill me because I said something nice about Manning.

So my recommendation is to drop this alarmist WND-styled blather that's not going to go anywhere. Are they wrecking the family? Yes. But everybody is the target, not just men. They are destroying the feminine too, because that's the other half and it too could allow self-preservation to take root. More and more women are getting guns, for example.

Concentrate on the target. The topic has no real solution, and if you get all those emasculated slackers out there to stand up and be "real men", you will regret it when some movement sidesteps the meaning of what a real man is and these real men will be herding you into box cars.

I kind of agree with you. I

I kind of agree with you. I think the solution is in the middle. It is not good to have either Robot people producing stuff all the time or the non-existent individual doing nothing.

no one is brow beating anybody

hitler was NOT family friendly. He even set it up so ariyan men from the front lines could come to special resort where they would impregnate aryian women and then the state would raise their child. Fact is men who have children they have to take care of tend to be more responsible.

Furthermore the only ones that think that its manly to hurt other people are the very young who are so inexperienced, and stupid what else do you expect from them? I do karate myself and one of the first things my instructor told me is that he would rather jump through a window than fight someone for real, even though I know through personal experience he can completely dominate me in a fight, and I am 6'1 and been taking class for 7 years.

Man hood is taking responsibility, whether that involves a family or not is up to the man to decided but with no personal responsibility their is no freedom.

It's not emasculation, it's

It's not emasculation, it's deindustrialization. That's doing more than making males into whiny little bitches. It's making everyone fat. Then you have all the trendies running around crying about how you need to exercise. I challenge that and call exercise unhealthy. People just need 40 hours a week of labor. If you're still fat, you need to stop eating for a few months or eat right.

I personally fall for the emasculation trap because I refuse to even attempt to date. For one, my wiener never grew with my body past single-digit age, so I don't even want to go through the embarrassment of a marriage where she finds someone who can satisfy her. I'm not even sure I make any sperm. I also have no desire to get involved with a female who has slept with even one person. I call that "slut," and I couldn't care less how that makes anyone feel. I also refuse to go to church. I hate the concept of collective worship and it's also not supposed to be a dating scene. I really can't envision any secular female alive out there accepting the traditional housewife role and also meeting my standard of not being a slut. If they do stay at home they are most likely to just do nothing but eat and get fat, not clean or cook. A man used to be able to just work a normal job and support a family. 40 hours and that's it. Now even crappy jobs expect you to blend your personal and work lives by going to events. Refuse to make those at work your personal friends, you go nowhere in the company and will never make decent money.

This is all by Design

The emasculating of men in our society is by design. It's all about destroying the family. "If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?"

Edgar Morgan

I would love to see an article on the masculation of women

I am sick and tired of all the girls being told to be just like the boys, and in essence for them to loose all their womanly charm so that they can compete with men.

Aaron Russo told us this

He was one of the most explicit as he described what Kermit and other elites told him: they wanted "women's rights", they wanted women to enter the work force to destroy the nuclear family, to reduce the role of father and head of house and to get kids into "school" earlier, later and longer to instill our agenda.

Now we have SHOCKERS like cops forcing women to denude themselves on the side of the highway....which is bad but barely mentioned in the article of note was that the boyfriend was present. Let's assume his lack of further mention is due to the fact that he did nothing.

That was a fight and die or live without your dick moment. Chock up one more emasculated male and one more emotionally raped female. To the state and the man with the badge.

We are in a process here. The regime that used to operate on respect now operates on fear. They have NO INTENTION of backing off or backing down so their only remaining tool is fear.

Get your preps together! Learn historic food storage and preservation methods and the science that makes them work now, start saving money and the future

True That

"That was a fight and die or live without your dick moment."

IT used to be that using vulgar language

In front of a girlfriend or especially a wife was cause for a fight.

Woody Guthrie's lyrics to "preety boy Floyd" tell it.

It was in the town of Shawnee,
A Saturday afternoon,
His wife beside him in his wagon
As into town they rode.

There a deputy sheriff approached him
In a manner rather rude,
Vulgar words of anger,
An' his wife she overheard.

Pretty Boy grabbed a log chain,
And the deputy grabbed his gun;
In the fight that followed
He laid that deputy down.

Then in the end he says

Yes, as through this world I've wandered
I've seen lots of funny men;
Some will rob you with a six-gun,
And some with a fountain pen.

And as through your life you travel,
Yes, as through your life you roam,
You won't never see an outlaw
Drive a family from their home.

Awesome

Thanks man, some Guthrie is what I needed today and I didn't even know it til now. Just loaded up a couple hours worth to enjoy this morning.

Cheers

Exactly!

I was just going to mention what Nick Rockefeller told Aaron Russo: that feminism was created to be able to tax twice as many people and destroy the nuclear family.

Yep.

And they made it to where both the man and woman have to work, and they still barely make it.

Sadly, the women are worse, too...

Of the women I come into contact with, a strong majority are on multiple meds!! Most women seem to have a mental disorder of some sort...bi-polar, manic depressive, fatigue syndrome, etc. So what's happened seems to be that the men have become a bunch of Homer Simpsons...stupid, lazy, fat and un-caring oafs. And the women are all psycho. Yet here we are, making more and more children to be reared in this environment in which the parental role models are both unfit. Look out future...the acorn doesn't fall far from the tree.

"The liberties of a people never were, nor ever will be, secure, when the transactions of their rulers may be concealed from them." - Patrick Henry

The metal health thing is going on in both sexes

I am constantly amazed by the stories I am hearing from my friends. It seems that the official diagnosis of a mental disorder - something that used to be called simply "Jack Ass" or "Wacky Bitch" -is like some sort of get out of jail free card.

No one knows how to love unconditionally anymore. Sad.

That's my take on this. Everyone born from the 1970's up - ie GenX to Millenials - knows that you can't count on mom and dad and the perfect family. You have to rely only on yourself. GenXers and Millenials never saw how to love and live as a family so they don't know. And if that moral compass wasn't ever installed in the first place...well.

Sorry, but...

That's just not true.

So many of the Ron Paul movement are of GenX and millenial generation and have been raised in good families.
Relying on one's self is a good thing and an important lesson a good family teaches a youngster.

Plenty among these generations love unconditionally. In fact we have to, with the flaws of parents and peers more apparent to the average child now than ever.

And what's with the "get out of jail free card" comment?
You want more people going to prison?
Do you believe people who are subjected to brainwash medicine are literally getting out of jail free because they are on these meds?Because that is definitely not the case.

Not sure what the hell you're even trying to say?

Are you a POT or a PET - Person Embracing Tyranny?

Yeah.

The article only pointed out the emasculation of men. But the entire culture has been turned on its head. I believe it is intentional. It is being done through television, Hollywood, the media in general, education system, video games, allopathic medications, toy selections, and food.

I think the critical theory is the backbone to the systematic destruction of our culture.

Women are having to be superwomen, but that is actually empowering to them. Men on the other hand, who have traditionally had the majority of power in all facets of society, are being forced to relinquish it. There is not too many things in life that can be worse on ones psyche than losing your age old role as the provider and decider. So it is a vicious circle.

Granted technology has leveled the playing field for gender, race, and socioeconomic disadvantages though. But there is far more to it than that. All one has to do is watch a couple hours of television to discover it.

Forgot a few things

Put down the pot, the porn, and the video games. Get off the meds. Stop relying on women. Get in the gym. Be a force for change.

you should have left enough alone

pot does not emasculate,anymore than playing a video game
i have ran 2 businesses,worked up to 80 hours a week for over
15 years
ran my own auto shop,ran my own welding co,and when i get a chance
i like to play a zelda game or mario racing
did i mention i have been with the same lady for 30 yrs?
did i mention we have been married for 24 yrs?
did i forget to mention i have smoked POT since i was 16?
so,people are different,or you are confused
deacon

setting your expectations to high,can cause depression

Pot?

Please don't go buying into the anti-cannabis talking points.

It doesn't make you lazy, or stupid, or lean-left, unless you are already those things.

You can be productive and change society for the better and even get in shape all while being a cannabis user.

Get of the opiates, that is a much more serious problem among young men and women today.

This is not accidental

Gender feminism intentionally emasculated men to give women more power. Psycho-stimulants and antidepressants take away mojo. Media depicts men as morons. This is all by design from Progressives who have a social agenda. Destroy men and destroy families and you have remade society.

But it is changing. As our Millennial men find their power they will reverse this trend. Young men reading this. The time is now!

saying it for years... its all by design...

I agree it is all by design. But the intention is not really to give women more power, necessarily, but to disrupt the natural balance of gender roles and weaken the physical & mental defenses Americans have against Authoritarian Collectivism (as I label it, aka socialism, communism, dictatorships, monarchies, pure democracy, nwo, etc.. it's all authoritarian collectivism!). The protector-provider role, is the Man's natural role, and it is being subverted, and inverted on purpose. Not by radical just feminists, but by radical authoritarian Collectivists.

Women are more inclined to vote for democrats, meaning they are more inclined toward collectivism. For the most part, women need to feel protected. This is statistically true.

American men are being weakened. From the school system, to the TV/movies/MSM, to the victim-mentality Laws that are being passed constantly, American males are being physically and mentally unprepared to protect their women and children, so they are all forced to rely on government. Look at all the wimpy men out there on morning talk shows and just everywhere. Politicians openly promoting homosexuality in our military. Little boys in kindergarten and 3rd grade being expelled from school for playing 'cops and robbers' or 'cowboys and indians' with fingers pointed like a gun.

American women, as the article displays, have to work even harder to provide for their families. Stress is multiplied. Families break apart. This becomes the culture. Eventually men & women give up on committing to each other. Population decreases. TPTB get what they want.

This is a very high up plot, only some international elite powerhouse group, like a Bilderberg level conspiracy, or UN, or CFR, or all of the above and more could pull off. The people W.Wilson, Eisenhower, and JFK warned us about in their speeches about secret powerful world-influencers.

The only real solution to this problem is the same solution to the rest of our problems. Americans, men and women, as individuals and family units, neighborhoods and communities, have to become a lot more if not entirely self-sufficient.

Great comment, Kevin

I read a bunch of the responses and yours is one of the few that actually follows the liberty mindset and truly recognizes the problem/initiators of the problem.
