Our society is becoming effeminate. It largely is already, to the point that I wonder whether it can be saved or if we need to adapt to the new reality, and make do. I am not saying this because of the homosexual, the merry-go-gay, and the ambivalent. I am saying it for the soft, the “not-sure-what-is-expected-of-me”, those men who don’t know what they stand for, even those who call themselves Nationalists.
There are articles around the web, arguing that male hormones are on their way to extinction because of the GMOs, the bad eating habits, the tight jeans, the synthetic materials.
This is no news. A few decades ago, a Greek Orthodox Archimandrite, publishing a mainstream ecclesiastical newspaper in Athens, had published a series of articles against the use of toothpaste, claiming that even fluoride in the water destroys manliness.
I am not going to argue whether there is solid scientific evidence behind these claims, or any other for that matter. What I can say is what I see, and what I can see is obvious enough, and repeated enoughtimes, to be adequately scientific.
So, men are becoming women. And women? Where do we stand and what is a woman to do to help her man and manhood to find its way not back –because that “back” is forgotten after 70 years of European peace-, but, forward?
It is argued that it all began in the 1950s, when men felt powerless because women were out to work, earning their own cash. By the 1960s women were not dependent on men, if they so chose. That is a weak argument. It is a weak thing to feel or say. If men in the West came out of WWII victorious –apart from the evil Germans and Italians-, they would have every reason to feel their virility hitting red. Why would a man feel threatened or powerless if his wife and daughter can afford more ribbons or better sheer tights?
Money is an issue, however, but it began much earlier, in the outbreak of the Industrial Revolution that reversed traditional earth-rooted values, and destabilized western societies.
Another issue is sexuality. With women’s flesh being so readily available and “in your face” bold, in billboards, streets and the internet, who wants to be a man, anymore? It brings in mind the old obstetrician-going- home- from -work, joke: “Darling, if only I see one more!”
Let us be honest. For everyone who has lived in a village, or has heard stories about life in the village, knows that the most peculiar shapes, triangles and rectangles were formed, and sexual acts that I wouldn’t care to mention took flesh and blood, in our noble villagers’ lives, which would put modern urbanites to shame.
Besides, men have proven throughout the history of mankind that they always jump at the opportunity to expand their options in the company of women more experienced than them and their legally espoused consorts.
No, sex isn’t it.
I turn to Nationalism, arguably the pure source of what can be saved and treasured, in search for answers. It is argued in the Nationalist circles that Man equals Warrior and Woman equals Mother. There are some beautiful images to illustrate the point: A wounded warrior resting in his beloved’s lap. A Mother breast-feeding her baby under the man’s tender gaze. A proud farmer posing with his wife and children. Now we are getting somewhere. But, how clever is that? If this is the task Nationalism has in mind for women, it is too evident to be remotely attractive, since self-evidently, only women can give birth. Whether Capitalists, Communists or Nationalists, it is women who are needed for the breeding of humankind. In modern societies, men can provide adequate quantities of genetic material that can be frozen and served at will. So here is the catch: If Women are to buy into the Nationalists’ bite of “Motherhood”, then Men have to pull the lot of “Warrior/Farmer”.
Men who created this society with the promise to provide for it and protect it, and demand that Women be Mothers, must first and foremost assume their own role.
But the truth is, European Men have conviniently conceded so much power to usurers and social and economic parasites, that they are no longer able enough and strong enough to provide for the world they built. They are unwilling to fight for their Families, their Lands and their Nations. On the contrary, they have exposed them to poverty and rape, fear and despair.
Therefore, European Men, you have to decide. If you do your part, and be the Warriors and Providers, I promise we’ll continue to bring forth your babies, because we are the only ones who can. And you know what? We have shown that we can also provide for them in your countless man-made ways, when need be, as we did when you went out and fought for us.
We shall also defend them with tooth and nail, as only a mother can.
In Ancient Sparta, honorable death was for men to die in battle and for women to die in childbirth. What if we all fought the battle we were designed to fight? Then we could secure the existence of our children and their future.
If I am Woman enough to fight mine, will you be Man enough to fight yours?
If I am a Mother, will you be my Warrior?
