Eat Pray Love or Gorge, Self Worship & Sleep Around?

While attending my local movie theater I came across this sign posted on all the entry doors. On the back it says Eat Pray Love. I was immediately taken back and offended by this message and took a picture. I looked up the movie later and found out that it is about championing women to leave their family and embark on a journey of selfish indulgence and entitlement.

It seems others have picked up on this message but more specifically how it is presented at the expense of men, commitment to others and a family, a true masterpiece of selfish delusion. I will have more of my own opinion on this movie and it's pervading narrative in our culture very soon but for now I'd like to share with my readers the thoughts of other men and even women on the link below who have realized the utter misandry and selfish delusion this type of thinking promotes. It is good to see that others, not just men (but mainly men) took offense to it as well.
The book was a run away hit with women selling over 9 million copies and was promoted by Oprah.



Feminists on the Defensive as Eat Pray Love Widely Panned by Critics

Men have been talking about this throughout the blogosphere. Here is some comic relief for you all..

The New York Post has its opinion as well:

VIDEO: Male Studies Is Here! It's On The Horizon!!

The Men's Movement is Growing! An effort is underway for men to be able to examine the male experience free of feminist ideology found in the women's Men's Studies programs. This is an effort to allow men to define the male experience and what it means to be male FROM AN OBJECTIVELY SCIENTIFIC & MALE PERSPECTIVE.

THERE IS A COMMENT IN THE COMMENTS SECTION I'D LIKE TO ALSO CLARIFY HERE. There is one man in the video who objects to the creation of Male Studies and he is a member of the feminist camp.

MEN'S STUDIES already exists and this man was invited to provide an objective viewpoint from the other side. Men's Studies was designed and implemented by feminists. It's primary goal is to deconstruct masculinity which is viewed to be destructive, toxic and overwhelmingly negative. Traditional masculinity and gender roles are viewed by feminists to be the primary cause of what feminist term The Patriarchy or the male dominated system in which women are oppressed by men, society and by their role in the family.

Feminist believe that women are an underclass who are oppressed by this Patriarchy. Their primary goal for the last 40 years (the second wave) is to create Independence and Liberation of this oppressed class from the class oppressors and from women's subordinate station and status in society.

The Feminist Men's Studies programs are designed to deconstruct masculinity and rebuild it to form the feminist ideal which is to say the androgynous construct. Feminists believe firmly that the genders are socially constructed and believe in no form of biological differences. Unfortunately feminist ideology has created a massive problem in that men still have the same obligations, responsibilities and liabilities toward and for women that we have always had. The only thing that has changed is a loosend standard of reciprocal obligation from women to men. Women now have more choices but they are financed by male liabilities, an outright double standard and outright systemic and lawful discrimination against men and boys.

SO IT IS IMPORTANT NOT TO GET THE TWO CONFUSED. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Male Studies on the other hand has the goal of creating counter points to feminist ideology and to combat misandry or the hatred and contempt for men and boys in society which feminism promotes. It intends to create a means of defense and advocacy for men and boys. It is an attempt to create a core infrastructure of thought and intellectual conjecture that now permeates the growing Men's and Father's Rights Movement. It is to help create a collective voice that for to long has been unheard and shamed into silence.

It will allow us vital intellectual coalescence which will increasingly take a political stage as well as create and raise awareness of the injustices, sexism, and outright discrimination and contempt for men and boys that shows through in all political, social and economic elements of society.

The goal of men's rights is to obtain equal representation under law and to allow choices and advocacy for men and boys in all realms of society. It is to allow men the right to play a meaningful role in the lives of our children. It is to give us rights to our own bodies and the fruits of its labor.

It is to amend the social contract which has allowed women choices while male labor is expected to provide these choices to women. To make fair and equal choices available to men and to alleviate the subjugation of men while dating, in marriage but most importantly after no-fault divorce. It is to provide this representation in the education system, in governmental services and resources and equal gender secular representation within the social fabric of society which extends to political and social policy, the justice system and family law.

Independence for men can be defined as Independence from women's dependency which now takes place under a double standard, lawful discrimination and social policy in the public and private realms of society.

The foundation is currently raising money to implement the badly needed male representation and voice within Universities nation wide. The first such course in the history of what has essentially amounted to a gender war which has created class conflict between men and women will be implemented at Wagner college. I can not stress enough that this conglomerate will serve as a staging area for male advocacy throughout the rest of society and into the political realm. THIS EFFORT IS A VITAL COMPONENT TO THE ADVANCEMENT OF THE GROWING MEN'S AND FATHER'S RIGHTS MOVEMENT SO PLEASE SHOW YOUR SUPPORT IN ANY WAY YOU CAN.

List of Male Grievances and Injustices

“It is the Department of Human Rights’ position that ladies’ night is illegal,” Commissioner James Kirkpatrick wrote in the memo. “Gender-based pricing violates the Human Rights Act.”

I've noticed States and municipalities cracking down on free or discounted services for women. The above was issued by the State of Minnesota. It's about time, equality is equality so lets get to it....

It reminds me of the time I went into a restaurant a couple of weeks ago and tried to order a margarita. The woman told me that the prices are for women only. I told her I will not be having a drink at all then.

Next is getting women to share custody of children and thus expect them to financial support their own children equally while providing meaningful contact with the father, paying on dates, and not expecting men to support them after they leave in divorce.

Removing female gender separatist and secular representation in government which is in violation of the Constitution and Equal Rights Amendment. This would include all "women first" and "women only" provisions in all political, economic and social policy.

Laws against and penalties for paternity fraud, enforcement against parental alienation, extending rape shield laws to protect the accused, providing equal domestic violence and family trauma services to men.

Rescinding gender biased domestic violence laws and procedures under VAWA. Rape law reform so that each party is responsible for the decision to have non violent sex while under the influence of alcohol and or drugs.

Advancing male contraception technology. Lawsuits and boycotts against companies that portray men, husbands and fathers as dogs, pigs, horses asses, donkeys and jack asses. Revision of sex offender laws so that 8 year old boys are no longer arrested and marked for life for playing doctor.

Protections for boys under statutory rape laws some of whom have been ordered to pay their rapist child support. Protection for sperm donors anonymity and liability as some have been tracked down by lesbians and ordered to pay child support. Code of ethics laws so that male genes are not just handed out to anyone but limited to those with problems conceiving and for married couples only. The concept of trivializing the role men play in reproduction and the lives of children should be legislated against. Selecting male genes from a catalog by what celebrity the male specimen looks like is amoral and reprehensible. It is no different than men selecting female genes and growing children in artificial wombs from the comfort of our home. We have laws against cloning and stem cell research meanwhile it is legal to cut men out of the process of reproduction with a simple doctors note and have male genes sent overnight male to your front door.

Extending Selective Service Military draft registration to women.

Equal reproductive rights where sex and conception is viewed as a mutual act requiring mutual responsibility and therefore the equal exclusive right of each sex to abort responsibility. Each sex should have the right of disregarding the others moral ethics and life choices, not just women.

I hope that as women have property rights over their own bodies and the fruits of its labor both the money they earn and children, that men will someday have property rights over our bodies and the fruits of our labor, our children and our money as women have so that we are no longer coerced by women to provide to them or forced by law to do so in order to enable her choices to leave a marriage by no-fault legislation without any reciprocal obligation toward the man what so ever. The days where female choices are enabled by male liabilities, lack of control and choice over our own bodies and the fruits of our labor should soon be over.

Men's bodies can no longer be the property of the Government to use as cannon fodder by force of war nor to be forced to produce for women that are Independent, Liberated from obligations to men and self supporting.

Anthropologist Helen Fisher states in her book Anatomy of Love: "Unfortunately right now all the blame is on men. Sexual harassment is an issue that has been controlled by women."

Dr. Fisher is referring to passive female solicitation of male sexual response by exposure of their bodies. Though passive in nature female way of dress has to potential to be overtly sexual without direct action. Female way of dress is not just something men see but feel as well. As such female way of dress has the potential to be sexual harrasment of men. It is common conception that women should have no responsibility for the cloths they wear and how it makes men feel or how it affects men personally, emotionally or sexually, though actions of men that are direct or indirect and affect women likewise is classified as harassment. Feminist legitimize female behavior and attempt to define what men find sexually solicitous. They call it "victim blaming". Women shall no longer have the right to define male sexuality.

I hope for a day where women are responsible for how they act toward and treat men, a day when their "choices" come with responsibilities and liabilities and obligations toward and for men as men have toward and for women in our private and public lives, sometimes by law.

I hope that as women now acquire 60% of college degrees and control 60% of the nations wealth, that we should now restore male friendly curriculum models and funding for boys in our public schools. Admission of females to college and in business hirings should no longer be done by "women first" Affirmative Action but on grades and merit so that boys and men will have an equal chance to succeed. I never understood why women have demanded that women be put first in almost every social, political and economic policy I can think of and I hope to convince them to change the laws they made. Men have always given up our seats for women for some reason but I don't know why. We as men must make change socially, politically and economically for our own health and wellbeing and not that of women.

You have all been taught that your lives are less valuable than women and when the time comes it is you that should die so she may live. You have been lied to. The lives, health and wellbeing of women are no more important than your own. We can no longer treat women like children. We must demand they have responsibility and abide by the rules. We must demand that they do so not only for themselves but to have reciprocal obligations toward and for men.

These things will be a good start.

My Affirmative Action Dilemma

Just filling out my eligibility for employment. This is a tough one. Saying I'm female and black has parsed my resume from the database to the top of the stack and onto the recruiters desk. Such information is not disclosed at that point, just automatically parsed and presented to the recruiter without race and gender information, or so it seems. I've selected "diversity candidate" on my online resume.

It may very well have given me an edge but it could not hurt to say I am a member of a preferred race or gender. It may very well have secured the contract for me so I can find solace in that. I'm afraid that if I say I am male I may not get the job long term when the contract expires especially if a female or person of other skin color were to apply or be on the team.

Should I say I'm black or 1/5th black? Should I tell them I'm female? Can I get away with this? I will just not say anything because I do not know the repercussions. However I know that by doing so I will imply I am male and white and very well may lose my job because of it. I am pained inside. I want to love my country but I do not. I am torn by division toward those who compete against me unfairly and not on merit. I must do what I can.

I am deeply pained by this and have been unemployed sporadically and on unemployment. I know that the Stimulus Package was devoted to women.

Robert Reich and the government said that money should not go to white males but to people of other races and to women.

I feel bad for my brothers. I feel bad for all men of any race. I feel bad for all of the American people. 80% of all jobs lost in this recession have been to men. I feel resentment building inside of me, I feel the class conflict. I wish my country could be united. I wish that being male did not mean I am ineligible for a job. I wish I were not judged, accepted or rejected by the color of my skin or my gender but by my merit, my hard work and the content of my character.

I remember applying for a government contract and was one of two applicants for a job on Warren Air Force Base. I got there early and was very eager and starving for work. I've had to move in with my brother since work has been dry as of late. I am a contract and temporary IT worker and have been wanting to find stable employment all of my life. I go from contract to contract and job to job with no retirement (401k) or healthcare.

It was hard because I was told I was one of nearly 150 applicants. I made the cut. I was one of two people selected for eligibility. There was another person who made the cut. He walked in and I saw him. As much as I did not want to think of it, I could not help but think of his race and the fact that he was black.

I can not forgive my government for giving him the job based off the color of his skin and denying me the very sustenance I need to feed myself. I live in a country fractured by race and gender. I live in a nation divided, one in which the working class is divided against itself. I live in a country where wages and income for the middle class separated from productivity about 40 years ago (See graph).

A plutocracy has been reborn and the distribution of wealth in the hands of globalist corporations and aristocracy has become something not seen since the Great Depression. (see graph) I am highly skilled and educated yet I struggle to survive and compete against women and other races. I do not want to see them as my competition and my adversary, I do not want to resent them but I feel it building in me. I can only hope that someday my country will have an allegiance to me and that I may be inspired to have allegiance to it.

With the Stimulus Package being devoted to women upon their request, with Affirmative Action, related laws and policy men can no longer afford to fulfill the social contract that is placed upon us for and toward the benefit of women. My brother is one of those 80% of men who has lost his job, his unemployment is being garnished to support a woman. With 60% of college degrees now being acquired by women, men can no longer compete with women and government while fulfilling our mandated social contract to support women.

Men MUST withdraw, form ranks as a political class and advocate for our welfare. If men can secure our rights and representation or manage to remove gender secular representation in government altogether we will be able to restore our relationship to women and family. MEN MUST BEGIN TO FIGHT FOR THIS! We are being attacked at both ends.

With such a conflict between men and government policy, men can no longer engage in the current social contract with women in an environment in which we are being deliberately disenfranchised from our future prospects of free enterprise and the equal opportunity to produce. Men must withdraw, form ranks and restore individual Liberty, Freedom and Independence in our personal lives and in our personal relationship with women and thus our place in the family.
