A Reply to a hidden comment

By W.F. Price

Dragnet commented and asked to explain something in my last post, and I’d like to respond to the following:

Welmer—good to see you back and writing again. Can you elaborate a bit more on this part:

“That external threat is coming. It is gathering forces and preparing for a long campaign.”

Equalists vs. Realists

By W.F. Price

The biggest problem with the men’s rights movement is its failure to see the big picture. For some reason, people think they can separate feminism and gender issues from a larger philosophical problem. This is wishful thinking. It can’t be done.

There’s a reason the feminists latched onto Marxist philosophy continue…

Balance — not Equality

By W.F. Price

I’m going to stay on this subject because it’s very important that people think about it. Concepts matter, and the idea of gender equality is a concept that has done a great deal of damage over the years.

First, let’s lay out a few reasons gender equality is undesirable.

A commenter gets it

By W.F. Price

I still do get (hidden) commenters, and one just replied with an illuminating comment. I could say that he recapitulates my argument, but he has a more forceful take than I do, and that’s exactly what’s needed.

From Gunner451:

I would agree with your premise that the MRA’s are not going to continue…

Response to comments

By W.F. Price

I’m afraid I can’t fix the commenting system until I get a new theme. The current theme is broken due to WordPress updates, and I’m not going to bother fixing it, because it would be more trouble than it’s worth, and there would inevitably be more problems with this theme continue…

Setting things straight

By W.F. Price

I secured another month on the server to take advantage of the opportunities that clearing the field and starting over has given me. There were some things about MRA and the politics involved that never sat right with me. In retrospect, I don’t think I was entirely free to be continue…

New site thoughts

By W.F. Price

I still haven’t decided whether I want to use this url for a new site or not, but I’m leaning against it because I’d like a fresh start and The Spearhead deserves to be what it was. If I can, I think I’ll keep it online as it is just continue…

Where to go from here?

By W.F. Price

If this post reaches anyone following my long hiatus, hi there!

I’m going to start writing again, but probably not on this particular blog. Not only would rebuilding the site be more trouble than I can handle at the moment; I’m tired of writing exclusively about gender issues and want to continue…

Life Changes

By W.F. Price

My son is now three months old and becoming more engaging every day, so I have a lot to be thankful for. But I’ve had to confront a few realities lately. Importantly, I haven’t been able to consistently or effectively work from home for reasons that other parents probably understand. This is probably my biggest stumbling block right now, and given what self-employment entails, it’s an enormous problem.

Secondly, my father fell gravely ill when he was about exactly my age, and although he lived another quarter century he never recovered from it either financially or in terms of his  continue…

Theme Issues

By W.F. Price

Readers have probably noticed some problems with the site, and the comments in particular. This is due to the fact that I’m using an old theme, and WordPress has upgraded many times since it was first installed.

I can and will fix it quickly, but it will require hacks and will be a pain in the rear. What I really have to do is get a new theme, and do all the work that entails.

I think for the next theme I’ll choose something simple and elegant that is easy to customize and upgrade. I’ve realized that nothing beats simplicity  continue…

Sex Selective Abortion OK or Not? Feminists Can’t Decide

By W.F. Price

Practically speaking, sex-selective abortion is a non-issue today, because anyone who wants to have one can whether or not it’s technically against the law. If a woman can have a test to check her child’s sex, and she can have an abortion at any time after that, she can have a sex-selective abortion so long as she doesn’t explicitly say that’s why she wants to kill the child.

But the issue still raises questions among feminists, who can’t decide whether female solidarity or individual female choice is more important:

NFL Names Prosecutor Involved in Rape Case Mistrial to Domestic Violence Round Table

By W.F. Price

NFL players and union representatives should take note of the fact that Lisa Friel, former Manhattan DA and now hired to serve on an NFL advisory panel of four women, was involved in a prosecution of New York policeman Kenneth Moreno that resulted in a mistrial and Friel being fired for prosecutorial misconduct. Friel is known for her aggressive and sometimes unconstitutional prosecutions of men.

According to a lawyer hired by Mr. Moreno, Friel went after the cop despite lack of any physical evidence:

The Sexy Sexual Jihad

By W.F. Price

I’ve been wondering for a while why there hasn’t been much of a crackdown on westerners who join up with Islamic State. Not all that long ago, getting involved with a foreign terrorist organization would get you in very hot water. But today, there have been calls – especially from the UK – for mercy. There have also been excuses, like the following:

The government has announced a raft of new counter-terrorism powers to combat what security officials regard as a severe threat from so-called Islamic State fighters returning from Syria and Iraq.

These powers are not necessarily aimed at prosecuting  continue…

Feminist Gains in Sweden Dwarfed by Rise of Nationalists

By W.F. Price

In the runup to Sunday’s Swedish election, expectations for Feminist Initiative, the world’s strongest explicitly feminist political party, ran high. But when the disappointing results came in faces were streaked with tears and supporters needed to lie down (presumably to avoid injury from fainting):

The Swedish election on Sunday offered enough emotional extremes for even The Bridge’s cold and unresponsive detective Saga Norén to need a lie-down. There were tears when the Feminist Initiative’s (FI) celebrations about the exit polls – which had indicated that the party would cross the 4% threshold necessary to win seats in parliament for the  continue…

Men’s Health: Guys Need to Cultivate Relationships

By Elusive Wapiti

Back in March 2014, S1 and S2’s grandmother passed unexpectedly of heart failure during surgery for an unrelated malady. In fact, she “coded” as S2 was just entering the hospital to visit her in recovery. S2 took her loss especially hard, as he was close to her, but the person who took it the hardest, as one would expect, was my former father in law. He (f. FIL) always thought it would be him that checked out first, given his slowly deteriorating health–a function of being a few years older than his wife, being very very very  continue…

Is Sending the Army to Fight Ebola a Good Idea?

By W.F. Price

President Obama has declared that the US armed forces will now be involved in the effort to contain the ebola virus, which is proliferating throughout West Africa, leaving corpses scattered across streets.

While the army may have a significant reservoir of medical expertise, its job is not, and never has been, to contain foreign epidemics.

In fact, armies tend to do just the opposite:

The American military experience in World War I and the influenza pandemic were closely intertwined. The war fostered influenza in the crowded conditions of military camps in the United States and in the trenches of  continue…

Rotherham and the Future of Blue Cities in the US

By W.F. Price

The real dirty secret in Rotherham is that the underground sex-trafficking rings were facilitated by the politics of contemporary multicultural Western cities. Ironically, in Muslim run cities in the Middle East, while these things happen, local officials are not likely to be complicit in them, because this kind of behavior has a way of (literally) exploding in their faces. And despite the claims of the local Rotherham Labour politicians, it looks as though they were complicit, going so far as to order police to ignore the crimes, and in some cases threaten white parents who complained with charges of “racism.”

Moral Re-Armament: The Original “MRA”

By W.F. Price

Today I thought I’d throw in a little bit of history as our world order enters yet another period of uncertainty and change.

Not long ago while reading about Christianity in Europe and the US during the age of dictators, I came across a powerful Protestant social movement I’d never heard of. I should have heard of it, but it seems that traditional Anglo Protestantism was all but washed from social consciousness in the later postwar era while some of the spiritual movements, such as New Age (e.g. Theosophy), that contributed to the development of a rudimentary National Socialist ideology,  continue…
