MGTOW is an acronym for Men Going Their Own Way. It is a community of men who have decided not to include women in their lives. The idea is that society has become seriously biased in favor of women and against men. The participants cite unfair treatment in divorces, domestic violence, child custody, etc.

There is a good bit of truth to this perception. Men are often treated unfairly, both in courts and in society. For example, I commonly encounter anti-male sentiments that are casually posted; were these sentiments directed against any other minority, the authors would be roundly condemned. But since it is against men, it is tolerated. As a man I have encountered such bigotry throughout my life.

I sympathize with much of the MGTOW ideology; however, these folks have become toxic. Their posts and comments are often blatantly, even viciously misogynistic. It’s one thing to object to being maltreated. It’s another to turn around and dish it out again.

As I investigated this community, I encountered some serious nastiness. Women are often referred to at THOT – That Ho Over There. A woman who wears brief workout clothes at a gym is considered to be trolling for a man to latch onto for financial benefit. Single mothers are all out trying to find a man to support them. And so on.

This is a bleak outlook, and grossly unfair to women. Granted, the courts do favor women unfairly in many cases. Some women do take advantage of men. But to live in a world where all the women are bloodsucking leeches is seriously fucked. And also bullshit.

It’s entirely possible to choose to separate from women, without having to demonize them. Just stay away. You can be polite, decline any overtures, and – well, go your own way. You don’t have to hate anyone to do this.

Incubi and Succubi

Back in the Middle Ages, people were troubled by demons who would come at night to seduce them. Women were seduced by male-appearing demons called incubi (singular, incubus); men would encounter succubi (singular, succubus).

Chinese “Weather” Balloon

About a week ago, a large balloon wandered into US airspace.  The balloon was from China; the Chinese government acknowledged ownership, and claimed that it was a weather balloon that had gone off course.

It’s Offensive

I don’t know when this happened.  It kind of crept up on me over the years.  But now there is a highly vocal group of people who police the Internet and try to destroy those they deem “offensive.”  This is bullshit.

Mass School Murders Not Due To Mental Illness

According to a report by Gary Brucato, PhD, and Ragy R. Girgis, MD, mass school murders are not due to mental illness.

I am curious to know what they think it means to be “mentally ill.”  Evidently it doesn’t mean the same thing to them, as it does to me.

Study Says Supplements Don’t Work

A recently-released study has concluded that several popular supplements for heart health don’t work.  Among other findings, there was no improvement on the levels of cholesterol.  Despite this, I would suggest hanging on to your supplements just in case the study wasn’t altogether reliable.

C++ Is Not The Same As C

This is something of a useless rant, in that few people care anything about the topic, and there is almost certainly nothing that will change as a result of my posting it.  However, it may help me get it off my chest, which would be a good thing.

UFO’s And The Government

The US Government has released some video footage of interactions between military aircraft and something that was not identified.  Evidently the proper term for these things is now UAP – Unidentified Aerial Phenomena.  This is probably a necessary change, since for many people, “UFO” means “alien spacecraft.”

Sherlock Holmes

Sherlock Holmes is the invention of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.  The highly logical detective had an almost uncanny ability to form deductions based on the slightest bits of evidence.  Where others might see nothing more than some cigarette ash on a carpet, Holmes could identify the type of cigarette smoked and form conclusions as to who was doing the smoking.  A muddy footprint might seem to offer no clues; but to Holmes, it would be an open book.

Some while ago I was a member of a science-oriented online group.  I noticed that many of the people in this group seemed to treat science as a sort of religion, rather than as an intellectual pursuit.  I especially noticed that there were many unkind comments directed against people who believed – or claimed to believe – that the Earth was flat.  Most of these comments were simply ridicule.  They did not offer any evidence to show that the Earth was spherical.
