Seeing as this is my first blog post it is appropriate that I write about what this blog will be about and why I’ve chosen to start it. Since 2013 I have been following political commentary online that primarily focuses on men’s issues and challenges the commonly held narrative of identity politics – i.e. women, … Continue reading Welcome!
A blogger named 'femgoggles' has been kind enough to read and like (or possibly just like!) some of my blog posts and I've tried to return the favour whenever he has posted content I particularly enjoyed. Through his blog I learnt about an article written on the website 'Aero' by Freya India Ager which explores … Continue reading Thoughts on ‘Toxic Femininity’
I was very saddened to hear that the YouTuber Vention MGTOW died from cancer on 25th September 2021. I subscribed to his channel a few years ago as he was friendly with some other YouTube channels I followed that primarily explored men issues and identity politics. As his name suggested, Vention identified with 'Men Going … Continue reading R.I.P. Vention MGTOW
If you've read my most recent posts, you will have noticed that I've been thinking a lot about technology and how it affects our lives. The most prominent piece of technology that many people possess is the mobile phone as it is either close by or on our person whether we are inside or outside … Continue reading MMM#3: Can you be phone-free?
Although I have a Twitter account - if you're interested, you can view it here - I try not to go on it that much and I've found that I don't really miss it much when I avoid looking at it. Twitter can be interesting when there's a big event happening such as the recent … Continue reading MMM#2: Twitter is what you make of it
Possibly, like me, you're reading this in a warm, safe place and are free from any kind of danger or hazardous conditions. If so, you're probably fortunate to live in a society that is safe and secure where you don't have to worry about finding enough food, warmth or shelter. This is a very good … Continue reading MMM#1: Comfort is a false God
It's coming up to two years since I started this blog and in that time I've made just over 10 blog posts! A remarkable achievement I think you will agree. I have wanted to write more on here but I've had issues with finding the time to write and also trying not to write too … Continue reading Coming soon…
This is the third and final part of my review of this book. Believe it or not this was supposed to be just one post! The first and second part can be read by following the links. Chapter 6 (continued): More About Memes I ended the second part of this review questioning what determines which … Continue reading Book Review: ‘The Ape That Understood the Universe: How the Mind and Culture Evolve’ by Steve Stewart-Williams (Part 3)
This is the second part of my review of Steve Stewart-Williams' book The Ape That Understood the Universe. The first part can be read here. Chapter 4: Romance, Relationships and Reproduction The fourth chapter continues the discussion on sex differences but more in the context of relationships. Relationships are important as they facilitate reproduction: "humans … Continue reading Book Review: ‘The Ape That Understood the Universe: How the Mind and Culture Evolve’ by Steve Stewart-Williams (Part 2)
4/5 stars Overview: A fascinating analysis of how evolution may have shaped the behaviour of humans and animals. I felt that the book was more favourable towards women though. This is one of the few 'first-hand' books I've read about evolution and evolutionary psychology. Most of my knowledge of this subject has been from 'second-hand' … Continue reading Book Review: ‘The Ape That Understood the Universe: How the Mind and Culture Evolve’ by Steve Stewart-Williams (Part 1)
As I mentioned in my introductory blog post, I have occasionally thought about making videos relating to what I've written about on here but had hitherto decided against it as I believed I could express myself better in words than I would be able to through speaking or appearing on camera. After I started writing … Continue reading Mystery Man Speaks
