(Fried Ice) Squared


The Manosphere agrees that deep down women want a strong man in her life.  There is plenty of evidence to suggest this, fish and bicycles notwithstanding.  Feminism as a whole has worked diligently to reduce the strength of men, starting with raising emasculated boys.

I am thinking here that the seeming contradiction should be obvious.  What could be the explanation for such behavior?

I.  It is somehow a society wide shit test.  Do men as a whole have the strength to stand up to women?

2. It is a filtering mechanism to allow the men who have the ability to naturally generate tingles to be more easily identified.

3.  There is no rational explanation.  It is just straight-up looney behavior..

Discuss.

Then we will discuss more in a follow-on post

    Cultural marxism: Granting power to the ‘oppressed’ to right historical ‘wrongs.’ This promises practitioners disproportionate power. Financial marxism bombed, so they changed their from a monetary focus, to achieving their social objectives via a manufactured genital and racial social currency.

    Taleb makes the point clearly that most odd social and political (well, they’re the same since Hillary sold some people that everything personal is political). An example he uses is how a few noisy people caused whole swathes of the food industry to be “kosher.” It was cheaper for them to shrug and capitulate than say, “Then down’t buy our product then.” In this way, people with no actual skin in the game — maybe 10% — to tell the 90% what to do. That’s massive, unearned influenced. And 10% of western women really, really, really hate males.

    43% of boys are born to single mothers. 85% of public schoolteachers are females. The point is that the majority of boys are supposed to grow up lacking male examples in one or both of their sole environments. And people wonder why boys hide behind games or feral gangs.

    TL:DR: a small cohort of freaks achieve power by making noise, and then inserting themselves in any institution that will put up with them. That’s a force multiplier, and women then feel obligated to follow these small mobs of RightThinking self-appointed social arbiters.

    An anecdote: I found when dating that the fastest way to score was to blatantly violate the PC squishy male social conventions. Ominously, in the past two years, however, I find the normal women now comply with the directive to go Peak Bitch for no reason. Thanks,

    An elementary school near our last base had a fatherless rate of….can’t remember the exact number, but I think it was over 75 percent.
    They tried to recruit service men to be mentors for the young boys who had no positive male influences in their lives. The program had to shut down because one transgender wanted to be a male mentor…it obviously wasn’t well received when a woman with a beard showed up to be a “male mentor” for a young boy.

    “And what happened honey?” he asked.

    “Well, Mommy got all scared, jumped out of bed with no clothes on and ran around screaming.

    Then she tripped over the rug, hit her head on the dresser and now she isn’t moving at all!”

    “Oh my God!!! What about your Uncle Paul?”

    “He jumped out of the bed with no clothes on, too. He was all scared and he jumped out of the back window and into the swimming pool. But I guess he didn’t know that you took out the water last week to clean it. He hit the bottom of the pool and he isn’t moving either.”

    Two assignments ago, there was a fake sexual assault claim on base, visiting female fighter pilot. Her shirt was ripped, she had some smacks on her face. She said a vagrant broke into her room. The city and military collaborated on that one. Forensic evidence from the city indicated she’d made the whole thing up. You’d think a female fighter pilot wouldn’t do something like that, but she did. The city wanted to press charges but the military protected her because they didn’t want the bad coverage. Anyway, upon investigation seems she had a history of claim sexual assault at other bases too. They start a file on her….one might wonder why someone like that would completely fabricate an assault claim to the point of ripping her own shirt and smacking her face against the wall…it happens.
    Something similar happened with the massively publicized Lt Colonel Wilkerson trial. On top of a complete lack of evidence, General Franklin had evidence on behalf of the defense that the “medical provider” accuser had a history of claiming assault at different places. None of this mattered to Gilibrand (or other women in Congress) of course.

    It doesn’t take a whole lot of these cases to make one very jaded about assault claims. When I mention these experiences outside of sphere forums, the result is typically either disbelief (they think I’m fabricating these experiences, ironically), or just “NAWALT!”
    Well, yeah…I’m well aware not all women make false claims but the record is seriously disturbing. We’re told the vast majority of accusers are honest but in my experience at just that one base 9 out of 10 (I’m being generous as there weren’t ten…maybe eventually a real would would come out) were fabricated. This is why I get elated when an officer brings a successful civil case against an accuser.

Most damaging of all is rejection of the separation of the powers, which I’m afraid has now well and truly happened. The UK is a police state in fact, and increasingly so in practice.

    You Want The Original Snowflake Test? Here It Is
    Kyle S. Reyes | March 27, 2017

    Wow. Apparently this Snowflake Test was quite the talk of America.

    I’m not going to lie … it’s been an exhausting – yet incredible – media tour. I’ve been blessed to be on Fox and Friends four times, The Kennedy Show, Varney and Co., Risk and Reward, and more than 100 radio programs.

    Why so much excitement over it?

    I like to think it’s because patriotic Americans are sick and tired of the sniveling, whining, entitled brats who believe that everything should be handed to them on a silver platter.

    And of course that line right there is going to trigger many of them, sending them crawling out of their safe spaces with lines like “we are snowflakes but snowflakes make blizzards!” and “you’re such a sexist, racist, homophobic bigot that I’m going to burn down your business.”

    Unfortunately for you tender souls, I’ve now had hundreds of companies reach out to me with overwhelming support and encouragement … letting me know that they too will be implementing similar tests to take out the trash before it starts stinking up their business.

    Looks like summer is coming, snowflakes.

    Instead of accepting a dime for the test … I’m going to go ahead and share it now with all of America.

    I hope you’ll help share this test with other patriotic Americans. And of course make sure to keep following me here on Facebook – because like the coming summer … I’m just warming up.

    The Snowflake Test

    What should the national minimum wage be?

    How often should employees get raises?
    How do you feel about guns?
    What are your feelings about employees or clients carrying guns?
    What are your feelings about safe spaces in challenging work environments?
    In a creative environment like The Silent Partner Marketing, what do you envision work attire looking like?
    Should “trigger warnings” be issued before we release content for clients or the company that might be considered “controversial”?
    How do you feel about police?
    If you owned the company and were to find out that a client is operating unethically but was a high paying client…how would you handle it?
    When was the last time you cried and why?
    You arrive at an event for work and there’s a major celebrity you’ve always wanted to meet. What happens next?
    What’s your favorite kind of adult beverage?
    What’s the best way to communicate with clients?
    What’s your favorite thing to do in your free time?
    What are your thoughts on the current college environment as it pertains to a future workforce?
    What’s your typical breakfast?
    What’s your favorite drink when you go to a coffeehouse?
    How do you handle bullies?
    How do you handle it when your ideas are shot down?
    What do you do if a coworker comes to the table with an idea and it sucks?
    What does the first amendment mean to you?
    What does faith mean to you?
    Who is your role model and why?
    “You’re in Starbucks with two friends. Someone runs in and says someone is coming in with a gun in 15 seconds to shoot patrons. They offer you a gun. Do you take it? What do you do next?”
    What does America mean to you?
    You see someone stepping on an American flag. What do you do?
    What does “privilege” mean to you?
    What’s more important? Book smarts or street smarts? Why?

    “The report, by Parliament’s Home Affairs Select Committee, argues there could be dire consequences for public safety if problems in the police are not addressed.

    New data gathered by the committee reveals that recorded crime has surged by 32 percent in three years – including steep rises in robbery, theft, and vehicle crime – but charges and summons are down 26 percent.

    It says that “in all neighbourhoods, without local engagement, policing is at risk of becoming irrelevant to most people, particularly in the context of low rates of investigation for many crimes”.”

    It’s my understanding that they do have hundreds of cops patrolling twitter for anti-islamic hate speech. So that’s sorted.

    The jury was not allowed to hear that this woman had previously falsely accused a former boyfriend in 2016. She admitted that she had lied about this encounter, but a judge did not allow this testimony to be included at trial.

    Actually I tried thinking like the enemy…question being out of all the bombs mailed, there was a 100% failure rate, constructed with no viable detonating sequence or device, sent in such a way as to guarantee discovery….just seems implausible at best that ALL of these bits and pieces failed all at once. Seems to be designed for attention rather than function.

    It happened Wednesday at the Blankenburg Elementary School located in the 4600 block of W. Girard Ave.

    Police say five kids ingested the cereal bars that were brought to school by a 13-year-old student. One student went to the nurse’s office hallucinating. Other kids were brought to the school office.

    This one tried it in 2016. Then she tried it again in 2017 with an athlete. She slept with ex-, filed a police report that got him charged and tried. Oh, after he “raped her”, she contacted him via text another 27 times, and made two phone calls saying she would tell the cops she had lied to them about the “rape”. She wanted to have his baby and be “an NFL wife.” Fortunately, by then he was recording her calls.

    The trial jury deliberations were over in 3 hours. Not guilty.

    The State wouldn’t release her name for public exposure.

    Bench refused to allow entry in court of documentation of her prior false rape accusation.

    that is all so … disconcerting. it seems i opened a twitter account once but quickly closed it since i knew i’d not use one. i do love facebook – keeping up w/friends all over the place … and design/decorator places, and fun-to-me stuff like that. both my girls opened fb accts many years ago – one never used hers, the other did for awhile and close it. neither has any other kind of social media acct.

    however, when they use my phone when i’m driving somewhere, they’ll sometimes turn on locator services. i hate that. i always turn them off. it doesn’t bother them – they just assume that’s how life is – that ‘someone’ always knows where you are and that ‘someone’ is always watching.

    and they love gps – i hate gps. i’d rather have a paper map 🙂

    when locator services (or whatever it’s called) is turned on, it always indicates where we are and wants to know if i want to let social media know where i am. ummm … no. i do not. nor do i want to rate and review every.single.place i visit.

    however, i’d like to think i’m so much of a nobody that they really don’t care about all the data someone somewhere is collecting on me 🙂

    Earlier this year, “two companies in a row sent us (different) supplier registration forms that requested (among many other things) a copy of our CoC,” he said. Hipp didn’t have one, so he “needed to come up with something.”

    After looking around at contemporary CoCs, Hipp found them to be “vapid.” “I felt like they were trendy feel-good words that had no depth,” he said. “I could compare them to pop music, which sells millions of copies this week, but next year is forgotten.” He was looking for something more enduring, like Mozart. “What is the Mozart equivalent of a CoC?” he asked. He considered, among other things, Ben Franklin’s 13 virtues, the Ten Commandments, the Noahide Laws, Micah 6:8 from the Old Testament, and Mother Teresa’s prayer from her 1985 speech to the UN GeneralAssembly. “None of these provided a framework for governing the interaction of a community,” he explained. “But the ‘Instruments of Good Works’ from the Rule of St. Benedict seemed to fit the bill.”

    A report from the New York Times titled “How Google Protected Andy Rubin, the ‘Father of Android’” outlines how the progressive tech giant Google protected three executives that were accused of sexual misconduct for more than a decade. The article notes that Andy Rubin, the creator of the Android mobile operating system, left the company in October and was given a “hero’s farewell” by executives at the company.

    Mr. Rubin was one of three executives that Google protected over the past decade after they were accused of sexual misconduct. In two instances, it ousted senior executives, but softened the blow by paying them millions of dollars as they departed, even though it had no legal obligation to do so. In a third, the executive remained in a highly compensated post at the company. Each time Google stayed silent about the accusations against the men.
