HUH? Wall St Journal & Walmart Tell US Men: Time to Give Up & Become Chicks

By Debbie Schlussel

Even though it recently won dismissal of a class-action federal discrimination lawsuit claiming it discriminates against women, Wal-Mart just announced a “women’s initiative,” including buying $20 billion in products from U.S. businesses owned by women.  You know what this means?  Attention, all males who own businesses:  install your wife/girlfriend/mother/daughter/sister as majority owner (in name only), while you cash in on this discriminatory and sexist purchasing policy.  For everyone else, no men need apply.  The initiative also includes a discriminatory training program, in which Wal-Mart will train only women to work in factories and give $100 million in grants to non-profits that claim they aid women. But the Wall Street Journal got in on “Let’s Hate Men Week,” earlier this week.

Check out these two headlines I saw in the print edition of Tuesday’s Wall Street Journal, and try to tell me the Journal isn’t trying to send a message to American men that they should quit their jobs and stay home to be Mr. Mom.

Of course, these stories are total BS. It’s, on the contrary, very healthy to have a society in which alpha males dominate and very unhealthy to have one in which they stay home to raise the kids. As we all know, this study is probably feminist BS because men are wired to go out, make a living, and conquer the world, not stay home like Todd Palin and raise the kids. (Hey, no wonder it didn’t work out with Glenn Rice and Sarah.) This nation of alpha females and beta males we’ve become is a disaster.

Do you think Al-Qaeda and the Muslim newspapers are telling their men, “Hey, Being an Alpha Male Not Halal Or Healthy” and “Men, Are Hard-Wired to Be the Women and Raise the Kids”?  Not a chance.  Yet, we are telling that to American men.  And they are believing it and assuming the role, more and more, according to Census figures.  That’s why we will lose–and are losing–in the long run.

Patriarchies last in history.  Matriarchies fail.

“threedoggin” calling someone else “hateful.” LOL. These liberals: do they never see how imbecilic they are, or do they know and just do it as agitprop?

Debbie: Looks like new Obamautomatons are finding your blog thanks to “media matters.” That’s good – maybe a dose of honesty will actually make them think for once.

DS_ROCKS! on September 15, 2011 at 6:17 pm

We can do both. We can be alpha-males who care for children, AND in our image. To love and nuture them the way men are supposed to guide their children, and not turn them into sexually confused “activists.”

Boys will be boys and not wear makeup, pink, or girl’s clothes. Girls will wear girls clothes. Boy won’t play with girls’ toys and girls’ won’t play with boys’ toys and I’m going to keep it that way. Neither are wired to want them anyway.

No point in not buying toy weapons. A broom makes a great machine gun– or a guitar. Come to think of it, not buying actual toys sparks a child’s imagination. A smaller stick makes a great sidearm. So be it. And let the kids be kids. If they come home dirty and spent, that’s less of a hassle in putting them to bed.

God, guns and ammo. Jesus commanded fathers to protect their loved ones, with weapons if needed. Hunting or fishing should be part of the mix. If not, it’s the glory of fully stocked tool boxes and big pick-up trucks like a Ford F-250 or Chevy Silverado. Or big over the road trucks and different kinds and weights of greases and motor oils.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m taking my bucket excavator for a spin. :-)

Debbie, I know of one Alpha Male that your readers might want to highlight as a positive influence and hero to their children, because he is. USMC Sgt Dakota Meyer, MOH.

Mr_M on September 15, 2011 at 7:03 pm

Preach it Debbie. Where are all the conservative voices on this one? Very frustrating.

BillV on September 15, 2011 at 7:43 pm

Somebody at Walmart and the journal need their pansy asses kicked by a high test level alpha male. Maybe it would knock some sense into their INTELLECTUAL heads.

samurai on September 15, 2011 at 7:49 pm

I sent a quick email to Walmart Corporate. It wasn’t a NICE email.

skzion on September 15, 2011 at 8:04 pm

Debbie, granted that girlie men are bad, I never understand how you describe muslim males as being “alpha”. They gay it up all the time, can’t win a fair fight ever, are largely illiterate and their entire civilization is incapable of coming up with indoor plumbing. That’s not alpha at all… Some of the founding fathers and the men that built the British Empire (not that they were all good necessarily) were manly as were many others.

Pauley D on September 15, 2011 at 8:12 pm

    Pauley:

    By and large, Muslim nations have rather miserable economies. The only Muslim nations with thriving economies have oil and lots of foreign workers to find, drill and transport it for them. I think the only Muslim nation with a significant manufacturing base is Indonesia and that’s largely because they have to compete with China, Japan, S. Korea, the Philippines etc.

    It doesn’t matter whether Muslim men are “alpha-males” or they “gay it up all the time”. They just aren’t getting it done and do not provide any kind of example for us to follow.

    There is NO Santa Claus on September 16, 2011 at 8:46 am

      Interesting post, TINSC. I never have agreed with Debbie’s tendency to compare manhood between the West and the Dar al-Islam, as if the males there were something special. With their fragile egos, inability to build cohesive teams for join goals, lack of trustworthiness even among themselves, etc., etc., they are neither alpha males nor metrosexuals; they are just primitives. But what would one expect from an Islamic culture?

      skzion on September 16, 2011 at 11:46 am

Pauley, the Muslims are not telling their men to be Alpha Males: they are telling them not to be metrosexuals.

Debbie is, as usual, correct.

Occam's Tool on September 15, 2011 at 8:27 pm

“Hate Men Week”? The stories in the Jouranl aren’t preaching hatred of men, they’re showing results of a study. This country is about liberty, and if a family decides to have the father stay home with the kids, more power to them.

You didn’t state specifically what we’re “losing”, but if you’re referring to the threat of Islam, it’s not because some men stay home with the kids, it’s because greedy, incompetent politicians and a poorly informed and lazy electorate.

BTW, there haven’t been a whole lot matriarchies in history, and the batting average of patriarchies is very poor.

We could do a lot worse than having a Judge Judy as a leader.

Scott on September 15, 2011 at 10:54 pm

    Scott, the issue isn’t Judge Judy. These stories do indeed have hatred of men as a subtext. Furthermore, discrimination against men, which Walmart is now engaging in, has nothing to do with liberty.

    skzion on September 16, 2011 at 11:51 am

      SKZION, despite whatever “motivations” you and Debbie attach to the articles, the articles themselves don’t preach any hate. They point out the possible health risks associated with type A personalities and they also show a supposed correlation between fatherhood and lower testosterone levels. I don’t know if that’s correct or not, but hateful? No.

      I mentioned Judge Judy as an example of someone who seems to possess honesty,common sense, intelligence, and toughness – attributes that could be an asset for a political leader, and the fact that she’s a woman should be a nonissue.

      Liberty means having the freedom to pursue your goals regardess of sex,race,etc.

      Scott on September 16, 2011 at 4:27 pm

        Uh, Scott, when men are discriminated against–which is what Walmart is in the process of doing–liberty, by your definition, is not advanced. I don’t know how many times I need to repeat this point, but I will not do so again.

        As for hatred of men, you need only be half-competent in feminist concepts to understand how the reporting itself, glorifying the erosion of masculinity, is hateful of men. If you were half-competent, you would understand that individual awareness of misandry (hatred of men) is not required for the creation of a type of framing of issues that is itself hateful of men. This is the “subtext” (you know the word?) that wrote of.

        Enough. You have not given me reason to continue this exchange.

        skzion on September 17, 2011 at 3:13 pm

Both stories written by woman, I notice. Not surprised.

Ed on September 15, 2011 at 11:07 pm

There’s an ad running right now for a kid’s yogurt that features the dad packing the kid’s lunch for school. The tagline for the product is something like “Dad’s who know get Go-gurt.” It is really sad that they are marketing towards this segment, especially thinking back to the old “Choosy moms choose Jif” days.

Unless the “dad” in this commercial is a total loser, he shouldn’t be able to care less what this little turd gets for dessert in his bag lunch, because he has more important things to worry about – like going to work.

Hopewell on September 16, 2011 at 1:11 am

Deb:

I agree with you about the manner in which people will game the system. I see it all the time. Women and minority businesses set themselves up as mere “agents” to pass business through for a few percentage points in mark-up; nothing more. It increases the cost of doing business.

If Wal-Mart does this, they run the risk of losing price competitive advantage. Moreover, as time goes on, I can’t help but notice that in some economic fields of endeavor, white males have become so scarce that we are actually in demand.

I certainly agree with you that Muslim societies are not imitating us. That being said, I don’t think Muslim societies exhibit anything in the way of an admirable economic model. They’re losers!

If you’re looking for Patriarchies with successful economic trends, China, S. Korea and Japan come to mind long before the useless clods in Wahabbi-land.

That leaves me to wonder. If Wal-Mart buys much of their stuff from China and then sets aside $20 Billion for U.S. WBE’s, what’s left over for traditional businesses led by American men?

There is NO Santa Claus on September 16, 2011 at 8:39 am

In our society men have been under attack for some time. Rush Limbaugh describes it as the “chickification” of America. It’s everywhere, even in major league sports such as the NFL. Men are asked or told to put aside what makes them men in favor of a more tame and gelded demeanor. The medical establishment is even trying to start an ovarian cancer awareness month. Women already have breast cancer awareness month yet there is no prostate cancer awareness campaign.

Take a look at some of the fall TV shows coming up. These include Charlies Angels and Pan Am. Both seem to feature women with men in reduced roles.

Let men be men and let women be women. Once we get the roles crossed that causes all sorts of issues.

O: Rush is part of the chickification. He has elevated she-men feminist alpha females, like Sarah Palin, to the front of the pack for no reason. He can’t have it both ways. DS

Oscar on September 16, 2011 at 8:41 am

    Oscar, Shows like Charlies Angels are for MEN, not women. Men produce shows like that because a lot of men are turned on by sexy women being “tough”, like Charlies Angels, female wrestling,etc.

    I’m not a Palin fan, however, she should be free to pursue her dreams to the best of her ability – regardless of her sex.

    I know Debbie’s attacked her as an “absentee mom”, but in this instance, she’s attacking her as an “alpha female”. Margaret Thatcher is certainly an alpha, yet I’ve never seen Debbie attack her. Golda Meir, and Indira Ghandi were also alphas.

    Let women compete – WITHOUT special advantages such as lower physical requirements for fire fighting, police work,etc. If a woman can make it without special advantages, more power to them.

    Scott on September 16, 2011 at 4:48 pm

What disturbs me the most is the psuedo-science. Yes, stress harms the body (just as lack-of-sleep does). But Alpha males can learn to manage stress; many of them do. There is no contradiction. Look at how soldiers manage stress. Corporate CEOs and fathers do this also. There’s nothing inherent in an Alpha male that necessitates high blood pressure or heart attacks at an early age. More than likely it is in their diet.

As as school teacher, I see the results of both the absent fathers and the “nurturing” fathers: boys who are rude and insolent. Better a strong role model than a metrosexual.

Don Kenner on September 16, 2011 at 9:29 am

    Couldn’t agree more, Don. We’re not seeing science, but pseudo-science in the service of propaganda, the point of which is that men are inherently inferior, immature, and dangerous to women. Was it Freud who said that if women ruled the world, we’d all still be in straw huts weaving.

    skzion on September 16, 2011 at 11:59 am

Sad thing is, that almost 20 years ago I knew a guy who had a “native American” grandparent, so he applied for and received all kinds of gubmint contracts for “Native Americans”. Then, he had his wife form another corporation so they could qualify for the “woman owned” business deals…even though all the work was still done by him.

Doda McCheesle on September 16, 2011 at 9:54 am

BTW, what was the “feminist” movement all about, anyway? Women’s rights? Equality with men? So women would have “right” to put on a manly looking “pant suit”, cut their hair short in a manly hairstyle, and enter a corporate boardroom full of men, and then run the company into the ground while enriching themselves, just like men?

Weanwhile, who is raising Jr. and instilling morals and values into him? Rosalita, the illiterate illegal immigrant pseudo-slave who has 2 sons, one in prison, one dead? And then we wonder why some many kids are either turning out as pansy weirdos, or gangsta’ wannabees (i.e. wangstas)?

PsychoCheese on September 16, 2011 at 10:00 am

Don’t shop in WalMart and won’t be starting.

GC on September 16, 2011 at 11:06 am

Hmmm…I don’t know why I’m responding to this, but here I go.

By the looks of your picture at the top and your views in this article you are most every “alpha male’s” dream woman: a pretty blonde with blowjob lips and the opinion that we should live in a male-dominated society.
Don’t like that classification? Too bad, you are just an object and therefore don’t get to have an opinion. Want to blog about it? Too bad, in your “perfect” world your husband would decide if he would allow you to even access the internet – much less actually participate. You like pants? Too bad, your husband doesn’t. You liked college? Too bad, women aren’t allowed to attend. Don’t feel like having sex tonight? Too bad, your husband does and you have no right to say no. You think that’s rape? I hope you enjoy institutionalization.
My point is NOT to change your mind (LOST cause) or even to defend ultra-feminist ideas. I quickly tire of the uber-feminists myself (and Walmart could go out of business and my life would not be affected). My point is that you often spout these pro-patriarchy ideals to a wide network of listeners and readers that you would’ve NEVER had access to without the feminist movement. YOU are a product of the progress that you love to hate on. And men don’t have to act like metrosexuals if they don’t want to (but I hate to break it to you that MANY of them like it). In the USA men are free to do what they want – and so are you – thanks to the women you continually put down.
You asked if Muslim newspapers are peddling similar headlines, well of COURSE they aren’t. I’m betting that mass murder of liberated, pants-wearing, bare-faced women in the American media (like YOU) is a much more likely headline in a Muslim newspaper. You want us to emulate the Muslim society? Go there, marry one of their most ALPHA men and live a year. Come back and let me know what you think of it after that.

BMB on September 18, 2011 at 3:39 am

I still think “organized” religion does more to undermine men then anyone else as men that think or question the “organized” religion are a threat to their own power when some of their idea’s don’t pass any rational standard in any other private endeavor. And God should have a “higher” standard not a “lower” standard. And Rabbis sadly are more guilty then anyone else as they undermine fatherhood and feel they are more important then a child’s father as they picked up this idea from other socialist cultures to undermine men for their own power grabs and sadly have taking to a higher level then any other religious group has. And the Rabbis deflect their own issues by promoting hate to all other religions which if we really were dong the right thing other religions would be no threat to us and the bible itself says that five would be able to defeat 100 if we truly doing the right thing.

aryeh on September 18, 2011 at 3:17 pm

…just one more reason to shop at Target instead. I gave up on Walmart because they hire illegal immigrants, and have turned their stores into Meximart anyway.
Americans have choices and we’ll shop elsewhere.

Al on September 18, 2011 at 8:21 pm

Can’t wait to see karma see you get raped up the ass by some Muslim man. Then you can whine about how alpha they are, stupid bitch.

Anon on September 20, 2011 at 10:14 am

Why lie and say “From a white guy”? Judging by your grammar and the fact that you said “small booty”, it is clear you are not
