Yesterday morning, I had a realization:
I remember the exact moment when it happened. I was sitting in a brunch joint in downtown Buffalo, waiting for the waitress to bring me my orange juice, when I came across . Like an empty car ambling forward on drive, I slowly grew angrier, my left hand balling into a fist under the table. article on quitting the ‘sphere
Mike’s article was the catalyst for my growing revelation:
I’ve defended the manosphere for years now because as one of its founders, I felt a certain loyalty to it. Mike’s article made me realize how I’ve sold myself out in the process. As he pointed out, almost no one came to his defense when Tucker Max and Geoffrey Miller plagiarized his blog for their watered-down ripoff site I’ll freely admit that the week prior to that, when Frost discovered that Jack from Mike’s site was plagiarizing for his own juicing blog, I didn’t want to do anything initially because I didn’t want to “rock the boat” in regards to site traffic ( was one of my blog’s biggest referrers). It was a completely cowardly cop-out and I apologize for it.
But it goes deeper than this:
We should be forging the future, not rehashing the past- a future based on a powerful understanding of human nature, an ironclad belief in masculine prowess and pride, unshakeable faith in masculine virtues, and absolute fidelity to ourselves and our peers.
Help us build it by holding yourself, and others, to task for what they say and do.
