Wife beaters and the prairie muffins who love them.

Does this mean there wasn’t any sobbing?

Maritime Supremacy

When women first began attending the U.S. Naval Academy in 1976, many observers foolishly asked “What’s the point?” While progress at times may have seemed imperceptibly slow, the naysayers have been proven wrong. We now have a steady stream of … Continue reading

Two additions to the men’s sphere lexicon.

Cane Caldo coined a hilarious term in his comment on Submission with a twist, and denying rebellion. A concubine is a committed slave who may not leave without her master’s command, and she receives no more providence when that occurs. … Continue reading

C.S. Lewis on the erotic necessity of submission.

In response to my last post reader Gaius Marcius was kind enough to point out the C.S. Lewis quote on erotic necessity: Lewis’s phrase ‘erotic necessity’ is not from That Hideous Strength, but from his Spectator article ‘Equality’ in 1943, … Continue reading

Wilson’s intellectual stink bomb.

Pastor Doug Wilson is clearly a smart and learned man. At times I greatly appreciate his insight, as with his explanation of Luke 22:35–38. But at other times Wilson stumbles in his writing, and when he is challenged to defend … Continue reading

Submission with a twist, and denying rebellion.

Spotting the presence punisher in the wild.

Reader getalonghome asks regarding women who punish with their presence: “Yet the concept is so illogical and foreign to men’s thinking that few men will recognize it.” I don’t recognize it, either. I know you don’t make things up, but … Continue reading

The Other McCain nailed it (yet again).

In my previous post I quoted Jezebel Managing Editor Joanna Rothkopf. From her Bio at Bustle, she is a walking, breathing, men’s sphere cliché: Joanna is a New York-based writer and performer. Her work has appeared in Vanity Fair, The … Continue reading

A lack of empathy.

The dominant religion of our age is feminism, and feminism means placing your faith in self esteem. More specifically, feminism means placing your faith in women’s self esteem. The fundamental premise of feminism is that if it weren’t for men … Continue reading
