There is a fair amount of information and disinformation out there at present. Matt Forney is out there claiming that SSM is a work of fiction, a made up person — after confessing a month ago that he made up a site with a submissive woman. He’s also doxxed Danny from 504, and proclaims the manosphere dead.
One does not know. There are a few people I’ve communicated with for a few years — but never seen a picture of them, nor do I really want to. I’m interested in their words, and often the comments box, where the insights tend to be pithier.
- The internet is a bit like the picture this morning — it looks beautiful, but it is wetlands, a swamp in Dunedin: that is some very cold mud.
Anyway, to today’s text It describes the endgame of a civilisation, what happens when your nation becomes a byword, a proverb, a joke. And in this time, the text is eerily accurate.
17Zion stretches out her hands, but there is no one to comfort her; the LORD has commanded against Jacob that his neighbors should become his foes; Jerusalem has become a filthy thing among them.
18The LORD is in the right, for I have rebelled against his word; but hear, all you peoples, and behold my suffering; my young women and young men have gone into captivity.
19I called to my lovers but they deceived me; my priests and elders perished in the city while seeking food to revive their strength.
20See, O LORD, how distressed I am; my stomach churns, my heart is wrung within me, because I have been very rebellious. In the street the sword bereaves; in the house it is like death.
21They heard how I was groaning, with no one to comfort me. All my enemies heard of my trouble; they are glad that you have done it. Bring on the day you have announced, and let them be as I am.
22Let all their evil doing come before you; and deal with them as you have dealt with me because of all my transgressions; for my groans are many and my heart is faint.
- The LORD is in the right, for I have rebelled against his word. It is now two generations since the Church had a revival, which masked the turning of the elite away from God. People such as Francis Schaeffer and Billy Graham were unwelcome: the Papists were a little more acceptable provided they stayed in their church ghettos. God will not be mocked.
- I called to my lovers but they deceived me. This is what it looks like in the trenches of the dating battle for many women. The men they can find in the bar or dating site are there to use them: either their bodies or their money. They are expected to put out… and with each time that bond of intimacy is broken, something within one’s heart is lost. Women become mistrustful, and then proceed to poison the well for their younger sisters.
- See, O LORD, how distressed I am; my stomach churns, my heart is wrung within me, because I have been very rebellious. People are increasingly unhappy, and increasingly fragile. They have not learned about disappointment and resilience when young: for when they were young they were never challenged, never tested, and never learned that defeat is but a phase, and endurance and steadfastness wins in the end. The consequence of this is that they go for an easy fix — to the point that even a placebo will make them feel better.
Truth is not fashionable, and Matt, there never really was a manosphere, but instead a bunch of people who still remain captured by truth and beauty, and not by what people say is true and beautiful. Who think Ms Monroe is more beautiful than Ms Jolie, and both are far more attractive than Ms Cyrus. And who prefer to give wise advice than pretty lies.
If the straw man that is the manosphere dies, it is immaterial. It is but a metaphor. Truth remains, and ignoring truth will lead to despair if you are lucky.
…but eventually a woman will start looking around for a provider (unless she voted Obama, in which case she can depend on ALL men to support her through the wonders of taxation). Babies are time sucking assholes who need their mamas fulltime for YEARS, and in order for a woman to do a good job raising her offspring (and no, hiring an illegal immigrant to raise your child is NOT doing a good job), she needs a man.
Dependable, reliable, loyal, strong. A man. The kind of man women’s studies majors HATE. #sorryfeminists.
We can say it ain’t true. We can set up false fronts and feed disinformation. We can delve into the past of those who write truth and disqualify them. But if we don’t follow truth and realize that we are not that different from the prophet weeping in a ruined city, we will, like him, experience the endgame of a civilization in our lifetime. It’s revival or destruction, and a binary choice at that.
SSM is taking her blog down. And both She and Will corrected me that the issue was around accusations made around children, not her gender. But someone got at her kid’s social media pages, and she is closing her blog.
