Six steps to raising a son in a feminist world

4 Nov

Still thinking about that Daily Life article and I thought I would give MY six steps for raising a son in a world that doesn’t like little boys very much.

http://www.dailylife.com.au/life-and-love/raising-sons-that-respect-women-20121008-278a6.html

GET MARRIED AND STAY MARRIED.  The most important thing a little boy needs is his DADDY.  If you can’t get this step right, heaven help you and your son.  All children need their fathers, but little boys in particular get chucked under the proverbial bus, loaded with single mothers demanding more money, more benefits, more handouts, more respect, more of everything they have not earned and do not deserve. 

It’s a curious contradiction: feminism wants little boys to act like little girls (touching, hugging, kissing, crying, playing dress-up, use your words!) EXCEPT when it comes to breaking their little guy’s hearts by divorcing or walking away from their son’s father.  In that case, be a man, little man!  Suck it up and move on.

LET HIM PLAY VIOLENT GAMES. It’s a rare little boy who sees a stick and doesn’t turn it into a weapon.  Little boys love bows and arrows, guns, knives, shields, helmets and every other artifact of war.  And no, they don’t want to have a tea party with Pookie and CindyBear.  They want to dig a trench and send Pookie to the Medevac chopper with some serious injuries.  You’re dead, Pookie!

Violent video games are important to little boys for a number of reasons.  Firstly, they give boys an outlet for their aggressions, which are perfectly natural and if you woke up this morning NOT speaking German, you should be able to perceive the usefulness of those aggressions.  Video games also demand mastery.  The programmers aren’t pleasant lunch ladies who will pat you on the head and let you proceed to the next level because “Good effort, Tommy”.  Nope.  Want to get to the next level in Call of Duty?  Then get it right.  All of it.  There are no medals for showing up.  Video games are an antidote to the idea that competition is bad and that mastery is immoral.

Another curious contradiction: feminism insists that cooperation is more valuable than competition, and that competitions should be engineered to benefit the weakest players (let’s pass a QUOTA for women on executive boards!). Women should be in every competition, watering it down and turning it into a cooperative effort, by force of law if necessary. Except for sports.  Let’s keep sports segregated, because if women had to compete head to head against men in football and basketball and skiing and every other sport, there would be exactly ZERO female athletes left.

RESPECT HIS BODY.  I don’t give a fuck what your imaginary friend thinks, you DO NOT mutilate your infant son’s penis.  NOT EVER.  If he grows up and decides he likes your imaginary friend and wants an imaginary friend of his own, well good for him!  He can mutilate his own penis, then.  HIS BODY, HIS CHOICE.

Let’s say it again:  HIS BODY, HIS CHOICE!

RESPECT HIS MIND.  Little boy’s minds do not work the same as little girl’s.  Girls are happy to process visual data at an early age.  They like cooperative play.  They will sit quietly and listen to stories and follow instructions and cut and paste teddy bears onto the picnic board.

Little boys do not want to sit quietly.  They want to run and scream and jump and discover and invent and tear things apart and put them back together again and kick and chase and jump on each other until someone cries.  Eventually, they grow up and invent iPhones and space ships and microwaves and automobiles and pretty much every other useful thing we have on the planet.

There is no such thing as Attention Deficit Disorder or whatever other bullshit term is used to describe little boys being little boys.  The school system needs to change to celebrate the energy and vitality of little boys, but it will take the PARENTS of those little boys to make it happen.  You can start by REFUSING to drug your little boys.  Drugs are bad, JUST SAY NO!

Image

SHOWER HIM WITH KISSES!  Despite their energy and their desire to turn every implement in your kitchen into a weapon, little boys have soft little hearts and they desperately need their mother’s love and kindness and validation.  YOU will model the kind of woman he will eventually marry, so try and BE the loving wife you would wish for him.  Take care of him, treat him gently, listen to him, give him tons of affection and feed him when he’s hungry.  Not that different from how you should treat your husband.

CELEBRATE MEN.  Create a home that welcomes and celebrates men.  Have lots of books and pictures and toys and trains and cars and spaces that look like they were designed by and for men.  Throw cushions and glass ornaments are fine for YOUR room, but your home should be a space that welcomes men.  Treat your male friends and relatives with respect and courtesy and when the guys are outside on the back deck and need some cold beer, get it for them.  And when your husband hands his son a glass with a sip of beer in it, go inside and shut the hell up.  That little boy is HIS son, too.

LET HIM BE DIFFERENT.  JudgyBitch has a ten year old daughter, PinkyPinkyPie and her best friend is a little guy I call AngelBoy.  Their favourite pastime is to read aloud to one another and AngelBoy loves to braid PinkyPinkyPie’s waist length hair into elaborate creations he learns by watching internet tutorials.  AngelBoy is exactly like his father, so he is growing up in a home with a mom and dad who understand him, love him and let him be who he is.  Not every little boy will be a ball of screaming energy, and that’s fine.  Some little boys quite naturally behave like little girls and that is perfectly okay.  Respect your son for everything he is and he will grow up to respect himself, and the people around him.

Image

Oh, one more thing.  When he gets to be a teenager and starts spending a lot of time alone in his room, let your husband show him the best porn sites.  He probably knows some good ones.

    I unfortunately know a growing number of men who would not accept your first piece of advice, since they’ve come to the conclusion that modern women are such narcissistic bitches they’ll manipulate and use the legal system to fuck their husbands over, dumping them and taking away all their assets and even their children, leaving many guys asking, “are women even fucking worth it?”

    Some call that “whining” but giving the incredible fucking-over I’ve seen a lot of guys go through… I mean I can pretty much tell you mean what you say and you love your husband, but the legal system, the way it’s structured, if you WANTED to, at any time, you could lie and say he’s beating you, run out, get a protective order, divorce him, take all his assets, and reduce him to only seeing his kids every other weekend or, worse, not seeing them at all because you just lied and called him abuser and they believed you just because you have a vagina.

    And they call men who complain about that “whiners” and “losers.” Yeah, fuck you, maggots.

    Hmm. Maybe JudgyBitch needs to write a post about what to look for in a woman? If she wants a big Princess wedding, run for the hills, lads.

    I don’t envy men deciding to get married because everything you said is true. But I have to say it IS pretty whiny to complain. Slaves. Damn things are never happy.

    Yes, yes yes, YES!!!!!!

    I realize I’m kind of going over the top here,but it’s soooo fucking good to at least know that somebody else out there still has some backbone, some character, some fucking gravitas, balls,if you prefer. I can tell by the way this is written that the auhor is a person,not one of these fucking jellohead Will Ferrell look-alike androgynous pussies. Sometimes it feels like I got fucked up,stumbled into a time capsule and woke up in the dystopian future of Demolition Man.

    People are so ridiculously soft and stupid that I feel like I’m going out of my mind sometimes.

    Taking a few knocks isn’t going to kill a person. Being assertive isn’t going to kill you. Having a personality not approved by your fucking 5000 facebook friends isn’t going to kill you.

    Back in the day, nearly EVERYONE in America was like we are now. No antibacterial hand cleanser addictions for us. And we were HARD AS FUCKING NAILS. We could sleep outside on the ground in a rainstorm,live on a diet of exclusively ramen noodles and mustard and beer and still be full of enough piss and vinegar to beat someone’s ass for trying to snag our bus ticket.

    To just about anyone born after 1990 that sounds like a parody, it’s the fucking unvarnished truth! And growing up as a boy? Heaven on earth! No zero tolerance bullshit to get in the way of giving that asshole from history class what he deserved, we beat the shit out of each other with baseball bats in the school parking lot. Using the school’s bats!

    You could run and tell the principal, but he (HE,mind you) would beat your ass for being a snitch!

    I got my ass beat on a bi-daily basis just about, but it looks like the Garden of the Hesperides compared to what we have today with smoking bans, safe schools zones,plastic bag bans, fucking moronic pussyhood running wild all over the place stamping out anything that could possibly be fun or the slightest bit risky in favor of goofball retards holding hands and singing koombyah and goosing each other on the ass (but only if both of them are members of the same sex).

    And that’s another thing, when the hell did we decide it was a crime to say “HEY,nice tits“?

    Sorry, just had to get that out my system.

    Needless to say, you have a fine blog.

    And hey….nice tits.

    You know… you started out WITH GREAT POINTS, but then after about 2-3 paragraphs, you revealed yourself to be some sort of troglodyte, (dare I say… redneck?) far-right douche. Nice going!

    Now, I have nothing against STANDING UP FOR YOURSELF, but INITATING VIOLENCE W/ A FUCKING BAT for a beatdown in the parking lot at some random time is going a bit too far. You do know that’s assault, right? And how was he an “asshole”, per se? Did he BULLY OR TORMENT YOU? Did he kick your ass previously?

    I mean, come on… The PRINCIPAL actually beat up STUDENTS?? What kind of sick school did you attend, if I may ask?! I’m no pansy, and I hate political correctness, but you’ve gotta draw the line SOMEWHERE, for christ sake. Getting a beatdown JUST FOR TELLING AN AUTHORITY FIGURE SOMETHING IMPORTANT THAT HE MIGHT WANNA LOOK OUT FOR, that could be classified AS ASSAULT? And did you REALLY use that dumb*ss term “snitch”? God, I hate that word… “You told someone in charge about a violent crime going on; you’re a snitch!” REALLY? I reserve a term like that FOR STUFF THAT DOESN’T MATTER (at least, in terms of criminalization), like nonviolent drug use or hooking. Imo, THOSE should be legalized, and cops should worry about ACTUAL CRIMES that have real victims, like murder and rape. But that’s neither here nor there…

    And you say you got BEAT UP TWICE A DAY?? …Why? Is it that YOU were “the asshole”, and everyone JUST GOT SICK OF YOUR CRAP after a while? But you’re PROJECTING that part of yourself (psychological term- look it up) onto OTHERS and pretending like, “I wasn’t at fault at all; it was THOSE OTHER PEOPLE!” Judging from the remarks in this post, I think it’s safe to say who the REAL “asshole” is here. I almost wanted to READ THE FUCKING POST IN A HARD, SOUTHERN TWANG b/c of how retarded it sounds after the 3rd or 4th paragraph.

    And while I’ll agree with you that sexual harassment prosecutions HAVE perhaps gone a bit overboard, consider this- if YOU were approached by some random woman, esp. a butt-ugly one, saying, “Nice bulge”, would YOU say, “Hey, thanks!”, or would you feel JUST A LITTLE uncomfortable?

    The worst lie ever perpetuated about circumcision is that it is a requirement of christainity. It isn’t. Peter, the leader of the apostle and first pope of the catholic church got into a huge tiff about it with Paul, the prophet who saw visions of Jesus after his crucifiction. Paul, who was Jewish, thought that circumcision was required to be christian. Peter, first pope, delcared that it wasnt’t and Paul accepted that to keep the first Church together.

    But for some fucked up reason it creeped back into christianty despite never actually being a requirement.

    My sons will never be circumcised, and if anyone in the church complains I’ll ask them to point out in the Bible where it overrules Peter’s decision on the matter.

    Just so you know, psychology studies have show that playing in aggressive ways does not act as a catharsis (outlet for their aggressions).

    They are not acting like little girls, they are acting like their own individual selves.

    I disagree about the video games but agree about the circumcision.

    Read this horrible news;

    “When he gets to be a teenager and starts spending a lot of time alone in his room, let your husband show him the best porn sites. He probably knows some good ones.”

    So what porn sites should the moms be showing their daughters when they notice they start spending a lot of time alone in their rooms? Do you know any good ones to recommend to PinkyPinkyPie when she comes of age?

    Porn made by and for women is a growing franchise after all.

    ” We can’t prevent our son seeing porn. That’s unrealistic”

    That’s a pretty defeatist attitude, innit? With that line of thinking you can’t prevent your daughter(s) from seeing it either so what will you do about that?

    You could also say, “we can’t prevent our kids from sending photos of themselves naked to strangers online so we might as well guide them on how to do that as well”?

    Really, I don’t get this line of thinking.

    For one, you could prevent your kids from having their own personal computers in their bedrooms. You could get protective software that blocks porn. Of course they may see it at someone else’s house but that doesn’t mean YOUR house, their own home, has to be a porn friendly household.

    How about sex? Surely if you can’t prevent your kids from watching porn in your own home you definitely won’t be able to prevent them from having sex so at what age will you allow your daughter’s boyfriends to spend the night in her room?

    And by the time she’s a teen the 50 Shades of Grey series will be 50 shades more extreme so will you outfit her bedroom in all the latest bondage gear?

    I mean, where does it end?

    And with such a defeatist “we can’t prevent” parental outlook, what is the point of laying any boundaries at all?

    I see this attitude a lot amongst modern, western parents and it totally boggles my mind and I want to understand it.

    I agree 100%. Just because children/teenagers are going to do certain things or be exposed to the less than cherry aspects of life doesnt mean we as parents have to introduce it to them personally. We can talk about the dangers of it, but not show them directly. That’s fucking crazy.

    As for porn, the thought of a father sitting down with his 14/15/16 year old son OR daughter and showing them some girl getting face fu***** or some woman whipping some guy is just crazy… And, not to mention awkward as hell. I can barely sit through a rated R sex scene with my parents.

    I know this is an old article and I’m addressing a somewhat minor point within, but I just have to say that if you care about your son actually being challenged by the various violent video games he indulges in, Call of Duty is not the best choice in the matter. It pretty much does give you medals for showing up at this point. Have him play some Wolfenstein, Quake, or DOOM instead. Those are games that will kick your ass and have no pity on you, and that you’ll feel great for kicking their asses in return.

    Jus sayin.

    This is incredibly offensive. My father died when I was young and I was raised by a single mother. I am just as much as a man as any other guy raised with a dad. I hike, I’m handy, I know how to survive and start fires outdoors, I sharpen knives, I can handle myself in a fight, and I know how to love my girlfriend and and treat her with respect, not as a slave; hell I even smoke a pipe. This article is basically telling people to objectify their wives and raise their kids to be shit heads who disrespect women. Just because your not ready for a world where men and women are equal. A world where a woman can invent the first computing code or discover the molecular structure of Radium, doesn’t mean that you should encourage other parents to raise their children to be intolerant people.
