    Paying attention to what the plantation thinks is another skill we need to ditch. Guess they forgot.

    Whether intended as a joke or not, it's pretty funny - especially the thought that all those things are mutually exclusive. I can fix my car, I can code. I know how to talk about my emotions, I choose not to. I can fix anything in my house, I also decorated it. Did I decorate it to satisfy a woman or a gay man? No, but I like it.

    Don't worry boys, you don't need any of those skills, there will always be real men around to get these things done. Eat your soy burger!

    In other words...TURN INTO A FUCKING WOMAN?

    1. What are you going to cook if you didn't kill something?
    2. You gonna talk the bad guy out of taking your dead rabbit?
    3. The code tell you WHAT needs to be fixed.
    4. The plumbing is leaking, we should get a nautical motif
    5. I ain't no Lemming !
    6 I eat children.
    7. Just DEAL with them.

    Now go stick your head in a bucket of water 3 times, pull it out twice.

    Oh, that just fucking annoys me, this obvious advocacy for transgender MTF habits and lifestyles. Yeah, I know the popular idea of transgender is not mentioned, but it occurred to me that the author wants men to become women in thought, word, and deed. That's crossing gender lines, seems to me.

    So I posted a reply there today. I registered with a throwaway acct and may never visit there again.


    EDIT:

    1. Hunters cook what they kill.
    2. Mediators only succeed under ultimate threat of force if unsuccessful.
    3. Car repair keeps cars repaired. Coding cannot do that.
    4. Home repair empowers and saves money. Decorating doesn’t fix anything but focuses on self-indulgence and keeps the person unskilled in repair, relying on caretakers for this.
    5. Soft skills augment but cannot replace the necessity of leadership. Leadership is everywhere and necessary.
    6. See my reply to #2.
    7. And only now do I mention women. Women’s problems are based on their inability to harness their emotions. Men see this. Certainly women advocate free emotional expression because they know they are subjugated by their emotions, having little choice in it, so they in turn promote them as if to convey that they chose to be emotional. It’s a Stockholm syndrome, women and their emotions. As a man, I would never trade my emotional temperament for that of a woman. Women’s temperaments serve their purposes best suited for having them. Men’s temperaments do the same for men. A world full of only women’s methods would not succeed.

    The author encourages men to be less self-reliant, more passive, and more dependent upon others.
    The last statement. It occurs to me that I described what even women do not want for themselves, a place they occupy and from which they created feminism to deliver them. After decades of feminism, the confused author and his supporters have not traveled very far from the beginning.

    1. Ignore everything the Neo-Liberal social engineers are saying to emasculate men, make men more like women, and make women more like men.

    The Neo-Liberal social engineering degendering experiment has failed. Men have become repulsive to women, and women have become repulsive to men. Governments now rely on immigration because the people already here are not even DTF anymore.

    Like one other member stated here, it's time to TOXIFY masculinity again!

    Re: Obsolete Man Skills You Should Ditch

    This is more of an attempt to reduce a man's survivability outside of society. Men who can't survive outside society are forced to stay within its confines and be forced in the direction it wants you to go. If you follow this list, you are effectively rendered unable to drop out of society. You cannot go MGTOW hermit with this list.
    Askmen? More like TELL men.

    Re: Obsolete Man Skills You Should Ditch

    Weird how it so rapidly descents into madness

    1: hunt < cook

    Yup, totally reasonable. We live in cities - that's the reality of our lives. "Learn to cook" encompasses "learn a bit about nutrition".

    2: fight < meditate

    I live and work with adults in a safe western democracy, and the only people who fight on a regular basis are people in fight club. Outside the armed forces, it's something that only a certain strata of people do. Like pissing in the street.

    3: mechanic < code

    Yeah: fixing a late-model car is impossible these days unless its your job. They are deliberately built to require special tools. But being generically handy, knowing which end of a hammer is which, is still relevant.

    And after that, the list is garbage.

    And we get to the end of the list, the sting in the scorpion's tail. Flat out wrong, utterly counterproductive.

    Re: Obsolete Man Skills You Should Ditch

    In Europe at least modern cars come with an OBDII port. Anyone with a computer the right interface and software can read fault codes. It may be computer controlled but wheels brakes and engines still work the same way. I can fix all my own stuff in the home and all of my bikes and cars.

    Obsolete Woman Skills You Should Ditch

    But these ones are REALLY obsolete:

    1. Cooking

    Instead everyone orders or eat out.


    2. Kindness

    Instead they are in permanently in bad mood, fight, nag and yell.


    3. Cleanliness and order

    Instead they live like pigs in messy houses.


    4. Sowing, Knitting, Mending

    Instead they throw away perfectly usable clothing.


    5. Being a Follower

    Instead they need to control and order everyone, everywhere.


    6. Nurturing

    Instead moms still want to act, dress and party like teenagers.


    7. Acting like a Lady

    Instead they act out their emotions without composure, show little decorum or temperance.
