I disliked the term cuckservsative the first time I heard it. I’m still not totally convinced by it but I find myself using it more and more often. It’s just so damned useful.
It really does perfectly capture a certain mindset. It’s especially useful when used against weak cowardly “conservative” men. There’s the implication of a lack of manhood, and a lack of manhood is one of the biggest problems we face today. It’s not just that today’s men don’t have the guts to physically contest the invasion of their own countries and their own erasure from their society. They don’t even have the guts to stand up to verbal assaults. They’ve allowed themselves to be emasculated and cuck is somehow just the right term to describe them.
Ridicule can be a potent weapon and that makes cuck an even more useful term.
It also has the advantage that cucks hate being called cucks!
The campaign against slut shaming is one of the sadder and more self-defeating manifestations of the social disease known as feminism.
In retrospect our civilisation has committed few greater blunders than removing the stigma from out-of-wedlock births and putting the state into the position of surrogate father for the resulting children. We are rewarding women for irresponsible, selfish and destructive behaviour. It is no surprise that there has been a huge increase in irresponsible, selfish and destructive behaviour among women.
While I’m not entirely convinced by his idea that the vast majority of out-of-wedlock pregnancies are due to such a small number of men that doesn’t diminish in any way the importance of his main points. Slut shaming is a good idea because it works. While it’s morally correct to condemn the men involved the fact is that shaming them will prove to be generally very ineffective. Shaming the sluts on the other hand has been historically demonstrated to be very effective indeed. If we wish to save our culture we need to look at solutions that will actually work in the real world.
Dalrock demolishes the tired defeatist arguments about double standards. There are double standards because men and women are radically different.
He’s also, quite rightly, contemptuous of the traditional conservatives who have been unwilling to run the risk of hurting the feelings of sluts.
This is an horrific social experiment gone wrong and it’s yet another case in which Christians have demonstrated a complete lack of backbone. Society is being trashed before their eyes but they think that if only they can sing Kumbaya a bit more loudly everything will be fine, and most importantly everything will be nice. Niceness is next to godliness.
The Social Justice war on masculinity continues unabated. Jim Goad has a good article on this subject at Taki’s Magazine, Reclaiming Toxic Masculinity
. I liked his point that we hear so much in the media about “toxic masculinity” but we never hear about toxic homosexuality” or “toxic bitchiness.”
The war on masculinity doesn’t just destroy families and ruin the lives of both men and women. It destroys other things. One of the things that it has utterly destroyed is Christianity. No religion can survive once it has been entirely feminised. Not only are men driven away from the faith – without men (actual masculine men rather than emasculated girly-men) the women become increasingly prone to wallowing in emotion, and increasingly totalitarian. It’s an often overlooked point that totalitarianism is often driven by emotion rather than reason.
Politics becomes entirely driven by feelings. We have, unfortunately, already reached the point at which politics is nothing but feelings.
And just when you think our civilisation can’t sink any lower, two New York lesbians are outraged that a magazine aimed at toddlers doesn’t have enough pro-homosexual propaganda – Nothing is sacred. nothing is safe.
This is why homosexuals should never be allowed to adopt children or to act as parents. They only care for their kids insofar as they can use them to advance their political agenda.
Also worth reading is the latest post at Upon Hope about the many and various ways in which liberals engage in direct and indirect child abuse.
