                     Being A Man


If you flip through the channel on any given network what are men being portrayed as? Do you see men who stand up for their beliefs, and fight for what’s right? I think you can agree that we see retards, (literally) like family guy, the Simpsons, married with children, and the list goes on. The days of Bill Crosby are over, instead the networks are Telling men that we are Pigs, whore mongers, drunks, slobs and so on and so forth.

Well I say different, I think for the last 50 years men have been sold a lie, we have settled for less when the world is just an arm’s reach away, does anybody grow up anymore one day hoping to aspire for greatness? President/prime minister? Where are these men? It seems like a lot of articles about mens childishness and their in-ability to raise a family let alone get their life straightened out. Everyone wants to be a gangster, have his hoes, be the pimp roll with his crew. Etc the list goes on.

Now there is an argument that this downfall of man, coincides with the woman’s rights movement. Well this is true, research shows that lesbians have crafted books and clever media to tell women that they don’t need to have kids, that doing dishes are slaves work. Ok, and to an extent this is true. Women deserve equal rights, they are people to, not things like they are portrayed in the media. You look at women in the media, where are our good mother, our strong female heads of the household.

 Because back in the day of hunt & Shunt men brought home the food, women raised and kept the family together. There was no debate this was a necessity of life. In my own home responsibility’s between chores and kids are shared, but I have to bring home the bacon so to speak. So this is the same as it was thousands of years ago. What changed?

Women are being sold a lie, that they need Nivea, and Maybelline to look like goddesses that they are unattractive unless they wear a size 0, have puffy lips and huge breast’s. How many vulnerable girls are waiting at the club right now for prince charming to show up on a stallion and sweep them off their feet? Its never going to happen, you dress like that and there is only one type of man you are going to attract; a Homer Simpson, The average Joe. Many women don’t know this they think that this is what men want because that is what they see on TV. Now understand if you shut off the TV the world actually becomes quite a horrible place, we are in debt, we have war famine and starving kids. But why? Because we are self-absorbed in the monster of the material world that we all helped create. This will not stop until we do something about it. Men and women together need to have a revolution in their own homes and except that yes we dropped the ball, but hell were men! We are going to take this world back, and make this a great place to live, why do we have 3 cars and 10,000 kids starve to death every day? Why do we pay a 600,000 mortgage for a house when we can build our own for free and in less time than it would take to pay it off?

North America is the only place where this is happening, and as McDonalds and Starbucks and other companies are taking other countries by storm, people that include the western diet and way of life are dying faster than us. Cancer has broken over a 500% increase in japan and china since the western way of life was embraced, over a 1000% in diabetes and heart conditions. The list goes on.

I want to ask you, how great you think life today is. And now tell me why teen suicides have jumped 5000% in 50 years? No joke, real numbers!

I think its time to stand up, be a REAL man, cut your strings little Pinocchio and remove the puppet master before he chops us up for firewood!  

And what do I mean by that you may ask.

Stop participating in the lie, stop buying Ed Hardy jeans, Stop Watching those shows that corrupt your sense on human, that lie to you and play on your desires.

Thank you so much for reading this if I offended you please let me know, this article is not set in stone, its just words on some website, it depends on the meaning to you, if this upset you. Good I got a reaction, now it is your choice on how to react, do you reticule me for my opinion or do you take a second and wonder if that is true and look into it yourself!
