No Tears for Dead Sluts; or, Why I Have No Sympathy for Felicia Garcia

It’s your typical heartbreaking Romeo and Juliet story. Teenage girl gets gangbanged by four football players on video, then kills herself when the truth comes out… wait, what: Two students have been temporarily removed from a high school in Staten Island, New York, for tormenting a 15-year-old girl before she committed suicide by jumping in […]

Knowing the Path vs. Walking the Path

NOTE: This article was originally published at The University of Man on May 27, 2012. I’m re-posting it here as the site is now defunct. *** Hi, my name is Matt, and I’m a recovering beta. I’m not here to flagellate myself for my past betatude, because I don’t want to bore you. I’m not here […]

Re-Review: Around the World in 80 Girls: The Epic 3 Year Trip of a Backpacking Casanova by Neil Skywalker

I already reviewed Neil’s debut book back in August, wanting to like the book but constantly being thwarted by the horrible editing and breakneck pace. He’s since released an updated edition that’s been professionally proofread, and my God. The difference is like night and day. While it’s not a hundred percent perfect (still too many […]

How to Make Feminists Cry

Last Monday, Frost published a guest article of mine, “Saving Women from Themselves,” in which I argued that the manosphere truly loves women because we want to guide them towards happier and more fulfilling lives. I checked back in that evening to see that the post had erupted into a real shitstorm, with feminists aggressively […]

Defensive Voting in Fracking Country

Right now in Williston, folks are convinced that if Obama is reelected, he and the Democrats are going to take steps to either ban hydrofracking entirely […]

New Article at Freedom Twenty-Five: “Saving Women from Themselves”

Frost has published an article of mine on why the manosphere, far from being “misogynistic,” truly loves women: Most peoples’ conception of love is this sort of nicey-nice, Sesame Street-type saccharinity in which you never say anything bad about the object of your affection and accept them for who they are. But is this really […]

Street Without Joy: The French Debacle in Indochina by Bernard Fall

I grabbed this one while mining one of those websites that features links to free Kindle books: not just old books in the public domain, but newer ones that publishers and authors will make available for free as part of special deals. Pretty much everything I downloaded sucked except for this, easily one of the […]

Notes from the Road: Rough Riding Through the Roughrider State

I left the Twin Cities on the 17th of September and made it to the western edge of North Dakota the following Sunday. Here’s what I saw and did on the way. Because I’m a lazy fuck, I didn’t get out of the Twin Cities until around 7pm, when the sun was setting. I made […]

Welcome to another edition of What the Fuck is Your Excuse?, a post series designed to embarrass couch potatoes and basement dwellers into kicking life in the teeth. *** The ghoulish-looking figure to the left is motivational speaker Lizzie Velasquez. She reminds me of a picture the DUI lawyer who lectured my high school class […]
