Action is the path of masculinity. Women wait. Women react and respond to the world around. As a man, you must act. The current situation in the west is very hostile to masculinity. It promotes a version of manhood that is broken in spirit from disassociated work, who comes home, kills the spiritual pain through alcohol and numbs the mind through Netflix and video games. We men are constantly bombarded with images of manhood that presents men as weak, lazy, stupid and ruled by superior women.
By contrast, all images of genuine manhood are painted as misogynist, violent, outdated, medieval. Fuck that. We need more of the medieval. Men need to get their collective head out of women’s vaginas. Time to cut the cord boys. This isn’t about hatred towards women. I love women and have been very happily married for years. But I do not walk around my house on eggshells clinging to my wife’s apron. I take action. How do you spend your time as a man? You cannot fall back on the “I work X hours a day…” Who gives a shit. That equates to the minimum duty of a man. There are 24 hours in a day and it is time to act, to use your time. Here I will list some masculine imperatives.
Lift and lift heavy
As a man, strength is your most dominant physical trait. Maybe you think you are already strong. You aren’t. As it happens, raw strength is one of the traits that women find most attractive in men. But who cares about that. If you are getting strong merely to impress women, you are doing it wrong. You don’t lift to appease some pseudo-image of your mommy-wife or mommy-girlfriend. You lift because you are a man and strength is your birthright. When you lift you increase your testosterone and gain the power to perform the actions that men are born to perform. Saying that lifting heavy is for “juiceheads” and people with low IQ is a weak excuse and complete bullshit. I am about to finish a doctorate and you better believe I lift heavy.
“Man shall be trained for war, and woman for the recreation of the warrior: all else is folly.” – Nietzsche
There is a reason that the symbol of manhood is the symbol of Mars. Men are born for war. Now, there are many kinds of war in the world. The war of the mind, the spirit, and the body. Today we live in an information age that often prizes the skills of a computer programmer or economist over that of physical capability. It is an easy trap to fall into, to simply focus on what seems most effective and practical in today’s world. We as men tend to be pragmatic creatures who have little use for surface value or mere sentimentality. But engaging in martial activity (and lifting) have deep psychological and spiritual effects. You don’t train martial skills with the aim or goal of going out and beating someone’s ass. You should do it because you are a man, and to contest other men, even in play-fighting or sporting ways fulfills a deep biological and mental need. I’m not going to get into debates over the various styles and ways. It doesn’t matter. Train Tae Kwon Do, Karate, Judo, wrestling, boxing or anything else you want. Those gyms that engage in a lot of sparring or practice matches are to be preferred, because this is what puts your brain and your blood against another man. As per Tyler Durden: “How much can you know about yourself if you’ve never been in a fight?”

Have a male circle, and do things
Men nowadays spend too much time around women and in mixed-sexes scenarios. Most professions men work at now are full of women. These men then come home and spend the rest of their night with their wives. This is far too much estrogen boys. Time to come play with the men. Too many guys get married, have kids, and then let their wives cut their balls off. Get the hell out of the house and around some other guys and do things. And no, I don’t mean go over to a buddy’s house to play video games. If you have let your male friendships lapse because of marriage then reforge those friendships or make new friends. Meet people at the gym or at your dojo (you should be going to these, remember). Go out with some buddies for drinks. Go hunting, fishing, rock climbing, bowling, whatever. Just set aside some time for male activity. Don’t plan to just “hang out.” This will lead to you sitting around like women. Always plan for action. Go hike on a trail–this costs nothing and wakes you up to the world around you.
But…muh wife and her feelz!
Some of you might think wistfully, “man I wish I had time for that, but the wife…blah blah blah.” Fuck that. Fuck her. Seriously. Do me a favor. Go find your wife’s purse and dig around in there until you find your balls, then reattach them. The truth is, while I think you should engage in the activities above for the sake of your own manhood, these activities are very attractive to any woman who isn’t fat and insecure. Don’t be fooled by this “be yourself” garbage. Women don’t want you to be yourself, they want you to be a badass. Don’t listen to what women say, pay attention to what they do. Women are attracted to men who can lift, fight, and who go outside and do things. Think about the images of manhood that women are attracted to. It isn’t a fat dork crying at a lifetime movie. The pictures generally show men who are dirty, working with their hands, who are strong a physically imposing.
There is a reason so many women were attracted to Chris Hemsworth in the movie Thor. He is a viking walking around in a world of beta males. He drinks his coffee and smashes the cup. He saves the girl and then GTFO to go do other manly things. He doesn’t sit around on the couch hoping that his woman will give him pity sex. Instead he smashes things with a huge hammer.
