The Manosphere….What’s It All About?
Is it all about “game”? About “hooking up”? About how to “luv em and leave em”? Are women nothing but the sum of their “lady parts”? And who’s the victim here anyway? The men, or the women?
There seem to be three main components of the Manosphere:
1. How to pick up (seduce) women.
2. Understanding gender dynamics
3. Understanding how gender dynamics affects everything else.
The best bloggers of the Manosphere tend to attempt to integrate all three. Unfortunately, from my point of view, the wider implications of what’s being said tend to be lost in the “pick up artist” (pua) vernacular. It’s almost ironic that the proof of what they suggest is proved by the fact that those posts and blogs concentrating on number one seem to be the most popular. I’ve been following the movement for quite some time now and thought it might be time to mention it here on my column. I have reserved a section to which I will link some of the best of the genre while writing the occasional article expressing my opinion.
To start things off I’m going to provide a link to an article from a non-manosphere blog which seems to agree with the philosophy.
Love to get other’s take on the movement. Lot’s more to talk about.
