Ian Ironwood – The Manosphere – A New Hope for Masculinity PDF Download
The Manosphere is a loose collection of blogs, books, and forums about men, male issues, and masculine interests. Covering areas of this vast “dirty snowball” like Pick Up Artists (PUAs) and Game, Traditional and Christian Conservatives, Wise Old Men, Puerarchs, Alpha Dads, Men’s Rights Activists, (MRAs), Men Going Their Own Way (MGTOW) and other facets of masculinity in a post-feminist world, Ironwood has designed this book to be a survey and introduction, not an exhaustive study. Find out why men aren’t getting married as much or as early. Find out what your daughter’s chances of finding a “good man” really are . . . and figure out what constitutes a “good man”.
Aimed squarely at feminism’s tropes and misandry, The Manosphere delves deeply into gender relations from the masculine side, and where it takes you may surprise you. Men today are struggling, searching, healing, and fighting . . . but they are more and more coming to the feminism-inspired conclusion that the time has come for them to pursue their interests as men, often independent of women or their interests.
Whether you’re pleased or outraged, this is the first look at a rapidly-developing and soon-to-be widely influential area of the internet blogosphere. Why is 50 Shades of Grey so popular, and what can married men do about it? Why is it so hard to find a good man? Why is it so hard to find a worthy woman? Why is 300 the greatest masculine film ever made, just ahead of Fight Club and Porky’s? And what does the future hold as more men leave the workforce, pursue fatherhood with passion, and look with skepticism on a culture that punishes and denigrates them on the basis of their gender.
The Men of the Manosphere aren’t Right Wing thugs or mindless trolls — they are seeking thoughtful answers to difficult problems. In the process, they are revalorizing masculinity itself, adapting it to a post-modern, post-industrial, post-feminist world. It’s not a world of equality, it’s a world of equilibrium. It’s not a world where men become better at serving women, but where men become better men. And it is not a world of sensitive new age guys talking about their feelings . . . it’s a world where sweat, respect, honor and fidelity are the coins of the realm. As more and more men, married, divorced and single, “take the Red Pill” and apply the knowledge of the Manosphere to their relationships, a wonderful thing is happening: men are growing strong, more secure in their masculinity . . . and less likely to capitulate to feminine whims on the basis of the feminine imperative.
