Fraternity


Over at Dalrock’s, Deti stated,

You’re correct, of course, that the men’s turning to video gaming is a direct response to the women’s presumptive rejections.

There’s more to it. There’s also educational institutions hostile to them (Yes Means Yes, Affirmative action in favor of women and discriminatory towards men, etc.) Men are being squeezed out of jobs in a workplace that is openly hostile and adversarial to them. Men are told they are not welcome in place after place after place — private homes, private clubs, schools, jobs, churches, and virtually everywhere else. All but the most undesirable, unattractive women reject them in the most cruel and public ways.

Men have literally nowhere else to go other than to gaming communities and to online communities.

Of course, most women will say that all this is wrong. Women haven’t done anything to cause any of this. If men aren’t motivated, then that’s not women’s fault. But my rejoinder is that women (and their willing sycophants in the clergy) cannot then be heard to complain when men simply absent themselves. because this is what men do when it’s made clear to them that they aren’t wanted or needed — they simply go away and busy themselves with activities that are easy, that provide a more or less certain and predictable return, and that involve little risk. Because for men, our ENTIRE LIVES are fraught with risk, rejection, loss, adversity, and constant threats of injury and death.

Later on, commenter Looking Glass,

Firstly, Video Games are vastly more enjoyable to most other pastimes. Especially the good games. Secondly, there is a social aspect to Games that have been obliterated in much of the rest of society for Men. (I can either talk about Video Games or Sports, that’s about the only thing that binds huge sections of Men together now.) Thirdly, most games are a skill to learn and it flexes certain mental pathways that much of rest of life simply won’t.

Here we have a world inhabited by mostly men, one where they can do what men like to do: do battle as a team.  In person and/or online they are with their old friends, they develop new friends; the male bonding can strong.  It is a sense of purpose, of belonging.  The American Football Hall of Fame quarterback John Elway lamented that after retirement the aspect that he missed most was going to battle with the guys every Sunday.  Given the real world that awaits them, it is easy enough to see why these fellas do as they do.

At one time having a leading a family would have filled much of this role.  As we all know, that is not going to happen for most men.  Women pushed and society gave, a decision was made.  Now the consequences are clear.  Men used to find belonging in family and community, now the find it in attacking challenging artificial scenarios with their friends.  Welcome to a Brave New World.

    there definitely is a huge social aspect to gaming that i think is very cool. i can’t play one to save my life, but my step son likes to try to explain them to me sometimes, and i do my best to try to understand. he also likes those card games where they build their own decks and play in groups – can’t remember what they call it. he started a little club at his school, and there’s a local place where he goes on weekend nights sometimes where quite a few of them gather to play.

    Yup! Me and my love are as such. We’ll go halfs on videogames and comics, then share the resulting library.
    For boardgames and RPGs, each guy in our whole group buys their own, then we share amongst ourselves on game nights.
    However, my FwB greatly enjoys card games like Magic, Epic, or Force of Will, but they aren’t for me. I prefer to paint miniatures, and am seriously considering getting back into Warmachine/Hordes when the Mark III rules release. 😀 🎮🎲💿

    Honestly, it still is male dominated, Fuzzie. Various recent studies try to show that female gamers make up anywhere from 40-60% of the community…but if you read carefully, the results include phone app based videogames like Angry Birds or Candy Crush/Bejeweled. This may sound elitist of me, but those aren’t “real” videogames like Skyrim, Portal, or Call of Duty imho. Once you take out those titles, the numbers drop back down to realistic levels.

    Yeah, there are and always have been gamers (of any type) who happen to be women/girls, but it’s the steady influx of attention-seeking “gurl gamerz” that are ruining everything for everyone. If only they would just shut up and play like the rest of us.

    That film was made in 1984. It didn’t seem especially far-fetched. It was made by the BBC, it won awards.

    Apart from mentions of the Warsaw Pact, you’d be hard pressed to date this film as being 32 years old.

    Background on the war
    The chronology of the events leading up to the war is depicted entirely via television and radio news broadcasts. An allegedly US-backed coup d’état in Iran prompts the Soviet Union to occupy the northern part of the country, ostensibly to prevent the return of a pro-Shah regime. On 8 May, the USA hints at deploying troops to Iran, to prevent the Soviets from reaching the oil fields in the south. On 11 May, the US Navy in the Indian Ocean is put on high alert when rumours begin to circulate of the disappearance of the USS Los Angeles in the Persian Gulf. The next day, a collision in the Gulf of Oman between the Soviet battlecruiser Kirov and the USS Callaghan leaves the former badly damaged. Subsequent discoveries by American and Israeli search and rescue vessels reveal debris and an oil slick from the missing Los Angeles, prompting the US President to warn the Soviets over the possibility of an “armed confrontation—with incalculable consequences for all mankind.”

    On 17 May, the US sends its rapid deployment force to take defensive positions around Isfahan in western Iran, hoping to deter the Soviets from making further advances to the south, with a supporting role being taken by squadrons of B-52 bombers and AWACS early warning aircraft landing at US airbases in Turkey. The Soviets respond by transporting nuclear warheads into their newly established base in Mashhad. On 20 May, the USA proposes a joint withdrawal from Iran to take effect by noon on the 22nd, while Britain sends troops to Europe amidst a build-up of Warsaw Pact troops in East Germany. The Soviets ignore the US ultimatum and, an hour after the expiry, are attacked at their base in Mashhad by B-52 bombers using conventional weapons. The Soviets defend the base with a nuclear tipped surface-to-air missile, destroying many B-52s. The battle ceases after US forces launch a battlefield nuclear weapon at the Soviet base.

    The next day, fighting breaks out between the US and Soviet navies. On 24 May, amidst rioting in East Germany, the Soviets cut the road links into and out of West Berlin, whilst offering occupying NATO forces free passage to the west. The USS Kitty Hawk is sunk in the Persian Gulf, and the US blockades Cuba. Anti-Soviet riots in major US cities damage several Russian consulates. The next day, the BBC reports on the Mashhad nuclear exchange, stating that the weapons used were within the range of 50–100 kilotons, and that cities in western Pakistan are being evacuated due to the fallout.

    Welcome to my childhood.

    Here’s an episode of the premiere news / current affairs documentary on the BBC back in 1980

    Hours after Hillary Clinton declared herself the presumptive presidential nominee for the Democratic Party, Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) campaign fired off a statement warning that she spoke too soon.

    “In the past three weeks voters in Indiana, West Virginia and Oregon respectfully disagreed with Secretary Clinton,” communications director Michael Briggs said in a statement. “We expect voters in the remaining eight contests also will disagree. And with almost every national and state poll showing Sen. Sanders doing much, much better than Secretary Clinton against Donald Trump, it is clear that millions of Americans have growing doubts about the Clinton campaign.”

    Now, before I devote a second column to this issue, let’s get our terms straight. We’re not talking about “transgender people” being able to use a bathroom that corresponds to the sex of the person they’ve “transitioned” to. We’re not talking about Caitlyn Jenner or Christine Jorgensen. We’re talking about biological men being allowed to use women’s facilities based merely on the fact that they “believe” they’re a woman “on the inside.” The public associates the word “transgender” with people who have undergone some type of procedure, some type of transformation. That obfuscation is on purpose; let’s not play into it. We’re talking about belief, not physical state. If a man claims to think he’s a woman, he must be treated as such. He can be 6 foot 5 with a lumberjack beard and a bulging pendulous dirlywanger, and yet he is magically a woman in the eyes of the law by virtue of his belief alone.

    (yes, I have previously pointed people to this radio series)

    Published on 20 May 2016
    *** For centuries philosophers and theologians have wrestled with the question of nature versus nurture. Increasingly and for some controversially, the science of behavioural genetics is starting to come up with some of the answers. The argument is perhaps at its most sensitive when applied to education. When it was revealed that Education Secretary, Michael Gove’s outgoing special advisor, Dominic Cummings, called for education policy to incorporate the science behind genes and cognitive development he broke a modern taboo and there was a predictable outcry. In a wide ranging paper Mr Cummings cited the work of Professor Robert Plomin who’s about to publish a book with psychologist Dr Kathryn Asbury which calls for “genetically sensitive” schooling. It’s based on a study of how genes and environment have shaped the development of over 10,000 twins who were studied from birth to early adulthood.

    The scientists say their work is about probability not prophecy and can be used to personalise education and create better outcomes for all, but fears of genetic determinism are deeply ingrained. How should we use genetics in education? Science is a very long way from knowing exactly which genes influence individual differences in learning but as knowledge in this field advances that time will surely come. We already use genetics to screen for various medical conditions, so why not for learning abilities? And what happens if, or when, the science of genetics becomes so powerful that we can identify different populations that are endowed with different genetic make-ups that we believe are more or less desirable? Is that just a scientific inevitability that we have to come to terms with, or does it open the door to eugenics? How should we use the science of genetics? ***

    Yep. Here’s the beauty product you’ve been waiting for all your life. They’ve actually been around for a few years now, but they’re suddenly popping up on Instagram all over again.

    This book is full of smut. Among the things we are expected to color are a morbidly obese woman who tells, via word balloon, “All bodies are good bodies,” a headless, indeed torso-less vagina, and a large collection of what are called “sex toys.” I suppose people would call BS if I said that I don’t know what a “dildo” is: The word goes back at least as far as Nashe and Johnson, and among the many prurient volumes in Pepys’s library is a manuscript for a song called “The Maids Complaint for want of a Dil Doul.” I’ve obviously heard of whips and shower heads and even, alas, vibrators. But most of this stuff was as new to me as it was sinister: Please tell me that you, too, dear reader, have no idea what “Ben Wa Balls” might be. The only way I was able to make it through this page was by pretending that each item was something other than what it says it is. Take the Ben Wa Balls: to me they looked like the kind of sunglasses Kate Hudson wears in Almost Famous. The “Ball Gag” reminded me of a clown’s nose; the “Magic Wand,” a Nintendo controller. The “Penis Sleeve,” I’d say, bears more than a passing resemblance to a Chinese finger trap, and the “Rabbit Vibrator” looks like a toy microphone with a bracelet or an oversized diamond ring wrapped around it. Only by these metaphors was I able to endure.

    Yoda,
    If we are going to go the tacky route, here is a satirical post written by Roosh.

    Venues for meeting are a problem but, this is too much!

    I can see someone buy one of those lipsticks as a gag gift. Can you imagine seeing someone using it in public?

    Yoda,
    Is that what feminists do for fun? I don’t know what to think.

    I think that there are a lot of Trigglypuff wannabes out there but, there can be only one.

    To boil it down, there was a counter rally at the University of California at Santa Barbara to a femiist sexual assault rally. Thsi is a first that I know of. The feminists had to be caught unprepared because it was peaceful.

    If this guy is freaked out by things like Ben Wa balls and vibrators, I hate to see how he’d react to cock rings, nipple clamps, or prostate massagers…😈

    “I don’t play games, but I really can’t count Angry Birds as a real game. And no, it is not elitist. It is reality

    How about “flappy bird”? 😀
    That’s as complex as my “gaming” gets.
    But I do like strategy board games.

    I’m starting to think the new Ghost Busters movie was an experiment they’d intended to use at Gitmo to see if they could torture any more information out of those guys.

    And yet there’s a little part of me that wants to buy one of these idiotic lipsticks, and put a prominently displayed tattoo (temporary) on my neck with the word, “Classie bitch” and use it in public.
    Just because.

    It would be like performance art. And they would call me “brave”. Maybe I could sit on a stained mattress on the street corner, too.

    I wonder if the Feminist coloring book was some government funding project for a Doctorial thesis on Comparative Modern Lesbian Poetry and Cartoon Studies. Or something.
    Surely they couldn’t expect to make a profit on something like that?

    The Scottish police force is monitoring social media for “rude or offensive comments”?

    Well, thank goodness we don’t have it to that *exact* degree in the US yet. I don’t want to be charged with some heinous crime simply by calling someone a slobbering dickmunch online…

    Well of course I don’t having *personal* experience with jacking, Spawny. It’s called “jilling” when ladyparts are used.

    Honestly, thought you would know that by now.
