When men spend money they often spend it on what women tell them to buy. Clint Carpentier asks men to put their wallets away.
In 1991 Naomi Wolf wrote The Beauty Myth where she claimed that women are oppressed by patriarchal pressure to be beautiful. What she failed to tell us is where the beauty-mandate originated, or how it is used to gain and maintain power over men. Peter Wright fills in some of the gaps left by Wolf’s victim narrative.
Why do we fall in love? Our analysis of the issues surrounding Men Going Their Own Way continues with Peter Wright’s overview into the nature of attachment and why humans are so fond of each other. The science about attachment that he reveals may surprise you and this historical context of just why we believe what we believe about men’s sexuality will definitely enlighten.
A Man Going His Own Way, Peter Wright has been in the men’s movement for over 20 years. More than just a political movement, the men’s movent is about men discovering the value of self-determination and individualism: celebrating it and encouraging it to change the cultural zeitgeist.

This is driven by several social factors, the first being that women control reproduction, as well as control access to sex. Since sex is a biological drive, most men will go along with an enormous boatload of shit and abuse because they’re dependant on female approval to gain access to sex.
But where it concerns activism, men’s best interest and the voice that emanates from this forum, it is my not so humble opinion that any woman who likes “real” men who spend their days carrying a load she doesn’t feel obligated to share is no friend to the men and boys in this culture who now find themselves in such desperate trouble.
‘Two words, princess.’ The crone laughed and her voice sounded like the breaking of rotten wood. ‘Two words. “Save me.” Say those words and everyone around you will see you beset by a horrible monster.’
You see them popping up pretty regularly in the MRM; comments about the pitfalls of western women, particularly the dark and dreaded American Woman, followed by a recommendation to find a nice “foreign” woman with which to settle down.
