When I first discovered the MRA/MGTOW blogosphere, NHY's blog was one of the first ones I read...found from Duncan Idaho's original blog roll from the Eternal Bachelor.
He has now decided to hang it up, and he states his reasonings in his farewell post.
It's a frank admission by NHY, and one for which I commend him for having that much introspection into his own thoughts and motivations. Unlike him, I did not become an MRA blogger because of anger at the female gender...I became involved through witnessing how the feminist system has destroyed the families of both both friends and close family members.
And I could never be an active MGTOW, as I was already married for years upon discovering the MRA movement and what it was all about. Aside from that, one should be careful of embracing hatred and rage, lest it consume you the same way feminists have been consumed into their useful idiocy in destroying Patriarchal society.
But there is still much for which I have learned from the MRA/MGTOW movement, and I sought to share that with my farewell post to NHY at his blog...because it seems like he may regret his involvement in MRA/MGTOW blogging.
There is a certain satisfaction gained from indulging in MRA approved misogyny...but one could easily let it consume them to the point of becoming the inverse image of the zeitgeist of feminists irrational angst we seek to overturn in the first place.
However, the most important thing you should take away from your MRA experience is to never take ANY person, male or female (especially female) at face value...but to look at what they do, not what they say.
When I first discovered the MRA movement, I enjoyed the rantings of Duncan and Fred X as much as the next guy...but I never had trouble with dating females -- indeed I'm married and have been so for the past 10 years. In other words, the MRA movement is not dependent upon or driven solely by bitter men who have learned to hate the female gender because of the feminist movement. No, I found Fred's, Duncan's, your's and others rage to in fact be quite justified in the face of what the forces of feminism has done to Western Civilization...but I also recognized that letting yourself become obsessed with anger and rage is risking becoming that which caused that hate and rage in the first place.
But what I did get from discovering the world of the MRA and the MGTOW movements was recognition of the TRUTH. Why society is on the decline, and just how feminism has corrupted the building block of civilization: the nuclear family unit.
So though you may leave off your rage against the machine and sign off from your blog, you are still equipped with the ability to recognize feminist bullshit when you see it...because whether you are a MGYOW and shunning female relationships, or whether you take the risks and do get involved in them, the feminist influence is indeed ubiquitous. Recognizing it when it rears it's ugly head is necessary to cope with whatever challenges you encounter.
I used to cluelessly endure mindless misandry from my wife and her friends, thinking nothing of it. I too laughed at the caricatures of dumb men and laughed at misandrist jokes and most media manifestations of misandry.
Thanks to the MRA, I laugh no longer...because I now see that such things are REALLY NOT FUNNY.
They are designed to dehumanize the male gender and destroy the VERY NATURAL and BALANCED existence of the male/female relationship. I now confront the subversive influence whenever I encounter it...and it has made my relationships with the females in my life much easier for me to deal with as result.
In short, one does not have to be a dedicated bachelor to oppose feminism. Indeed, the biggest blow you can strike against feminism and the modern Matriarchy is to find a female for which you can successfully create a Patriarchal family unit with.
Though you may never blog again, I'm quite sure that at the very least, you will be able to a much more discerning and cautious entrant into a male/female relationship because you have been enlightened about the modern dynamics of life under the matriarchal model.
Good luck NHY!
