    Sorry to start with an off topic post, but the t-shirt on this woman proclaims I’M A SINNER with a rainbow PRIDE underneath: https://twitter.com/VanessaMarcilM/status/874549703890714624

    Openly proclaiming PRIDE in sinning.

    This is from TV actress Vanessa Marcil’s twitter feed. Marcil is the woman beside the woman in the I’M A SINNER t-shirt.

  3. ys says:

    Seems Christians will be last to honor fathers. We are already last on so much else (accepting gays, and coming soon, accepting transgenders). You have linked to secular people saying dads shouldn’t be trashed (I think it was a review of Mom’s Night Out, if I’m not mistaken). The secular world is already ahead on this. They realize they have driven fathers away, and now they want them.
    Again, the world is ahead, sadly for the church. Hopefully we can get it together. I worked with a non-believing woman who was about to get married. She mocked sexless marriages, saying, “Why would anyone get married if they weren’t willing to have sex with their husband. Men have needs.” Few Christian women would say that.
    Hopefully the turnaround for the church is soon.

    “Openly proclaiming PRIDE in sinning.”

    A woman in an MBA class I took years ago would wear a necklace that said “Sinful”.

    Yes, many are proud of being sluts, and it isn’t a new phenomenon.

  5. Days of Broken Arrows says:

    Just in case this didn’t put everyone in a bad mood, I’m passing along a meme I saw on FB during Father’s Day last year. There are a whole bunch like this. No equivalent for Mother’s Day.

  6. Days of Broken Arrows says:

    And another…

  7. Hose_B says:

    I’m confused by the 12 “tips”. They are more like advertisements for the site.
    “Do you _________? Come to the site to learn more”
    “Have you _______? Come to the site to learn more.

    Not to mention that they are all self centered, not father centered. Seems to be about helping the individual feel better rather than actually honoring their father.

  8. Kevin says:

    I had to check the website links because I could not believe anyone would post those as a way to honor fathers day. You cannot parody the crazy. When we start with the assumption most fathers are terrible wounding monsters – what could possibly go wrong? Maybe the problem is that since they cannot make any corrective statements to women and moms, all the criticisms must get funneled to men and fathers. Its normal to give correction to fathers and mothers, but if you can only correct one it transforms into ugliness.

    But really – Lebron was destroyed so my bread and circus meter is full!

    Dalrock – you have some new animated ads that are screwing with my browser – never had that happen before.

  9. Hugh says:

    Sickening stuff. Truly vile.

  10. feministhater says:

    So… after trashing fathers they end off with…

    Children growing up without a father present are more likely to suffer physical, emotional or educational neglect, engage in juvenile delinquency including violent crime, abuse drugs and alcohol, be a teenage mom and live in poverty.

    Fathers are so important to children’s lives that they only serve as an ATM and pinata.. One to bash when anything goes wrong or you feel bad and need someone to blame. It takes a certain level of vileness to lay into fathers like everyone does and then come back and say you so desperately need them… else society crumbles. That paragraph rightly shows that fathers are so needed in absolutely every aspect of society but instead of acknowledging that and honouring fathers for their vital input, they shit test them one more time for good measure.

  11. Cane Caldo says:

    These make sense if the goal is to attract and make consumers of people who are angry at, or resent, their fathers. A group of self-centered Mommas-boys isn’t going to want many around who actually honor their fathers. Their presence would make Mommas-boys (and unruly women) feel bad, envious, or even un-Christian.

  12. TLM says:

    The churchians would cheer with joy and bring the roof down with applause if a transgender father made a sermon from the pulpit on Father’s Day.

  13. I’m an Orthodox Christian. I have to ask: why do Protestant laity put up with this? Why don’t the fathers in attendance at these events just get up and walk out and never return? If they stay, why don’t they quote scripture – in church – to refute the lies? Whence the bold preachers of days past?

  15. safespaceplaypen says:

    It hasn’t hit a lot of Christians that Christianity does in fact push a patriarchal moral order (a lot of them go to great lengths to deny this fact, citing Christianity as pro-complementary and even pro-egalitarian) and it hasn’t hit a lot of Christians that in The Current Year (TM) we live in a matriarchal moral order.

    There is so much depth to the Christian faith, and yet the only message you’ll ever hear is “have faith in Jesus Christ and you will go to Heaven” (or some variation of this statement) and not the other aspects of the faith that are also incredibly important.

  16. Gunner Q says:

    Such shameless advertising. “If you want a good father then come to our website! We’ll be your good father… I mean… we’ll train your father to be good… not that there’s anything wrong with him… unless you think there is… uh… buy what we’re selling!”

    It puts me in mind of converged organizations begging for donations as they face the economic reality of virtue-signaling over profit. The burgeoning amounts of advertising, the furious search for enough transsexual Eskimo customers to keep the doors open, the ironclad conviction that your fantasy market is real even as you beg the government for taxpayer funding. So funny to watch their desire for progging face off against their desire for money. So interesting that progging is the usual winner.

  17. Frank McConnell says:

    Maybe we should start a similar campaign for mother’s day:

    “Not sure how to honor the mother who put you in daycare 10 hours a day while she pursued her career? Visit honoryourmom.com to learn how…”

    “Mad at your mother for being a shrew to your dad? Check out honoryourmom.com to learn how to love her this Mother’s Day.”

    Sickening. These woman worshipers and Christ deniers (yes, that’s what they are. They worship a false goddess not God) are a disgusting poison and make a mockery out of Christianity. And these idiots wonder why MGTOW just keeps growing?

    Stop worshiping cunts! They’re just silly little creatures you idiots. You’re head is located on top of your neck not between your legs.

  20. Many young females these days have BDSM fetishes about “DaddyDoms” and yet hate actual fathers; they sexually fetishize male dominance and yet hate the idea of men having one iota of actual power. This is a sick generation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters.

    @safespace

    There is so much depth to the Christian faith, and yet the only message you’ll ever hear is “have faith in Jesus Christ and you will go to Heaven” and not the other aspects of the faith that are also incredibly important.

    Mainstream Christianity has been invaded by antinomianism, which has weakened, distorted or even rejected God’s law. “If ye love me, keep my commandments.” (John 14:15) Females have redefined earthly love. Now it means: give women whatever they want. Likewise, females have redefined God’s love. Now it means: women will go to heaven while men have to repent for the sin of “sexism.”

    Many Christians are effectively cucking and castrating themselves in order to profess that they are not like ISIS: not holding to objective truth, not wanting to “obey God rather than men” (Acts 5:29), not being opposed to the filthy sin of sodomy, not preaching God’s LAW, and of course not being opposed to the anti-Christian concept of “gender equality.”

  21. Major Styles says:

    That’s why a man can never let his guard down…why he’s always at battle. Why he must be ready to combat the society around him. Sad but true.

  25. Novaseeker says:

    And it continues …

    Bill McGurn has a column on Father’s Day in today’s WSJ (https://www.wsj.com/articles/dad-meets-the-sexual-revolution-1497307294) where the topic is … casual sex and how young men are engaged in perpetual adolescence. I kid you not. Ostensibly this is linked to Father’s Day because he states the unpopular opinion that women shouldn’t get drunk due to rape risk, but really it seems like another opportunity to bash men — in this case men who are not even fathers themselves on Father’s Day — men who are not manning up and marrying career girls, men who are too focused on sex, etc.

    Men are bad because not doing what (McGurn thinks) the girls want — as if. Guys like this, I think, will never understand that women are doing precisely what they want, and that women still hold the cards in the sexual dance because they can still always say “no”. They may not *want* to say no if they are really attracted to the guy and he demands sex early on, because he will next them and move on, but they do not *have* to say no. Fact is, girls do not give up sex when they do not WANT to give up sex, when they are not attracted enough to want to have sex, unless they are using sex as a tool. Clueless people like McGurn will never get this, because they can’t possibly bring themselves to imagine that women want to have sex with sexually attractive men, but don’t want to have sex with less sexually attractive men (*but may agree to marry these men, if they are the ones available for that*). No, because only men want sex, and women all only want romance and sex only, if ever, in that context.

    What a dunce.

  26. Boxer says:

    Bill McGurn has a column on Father’s Day in today’s WSJ

    I read the article. Laughable and stupid. WSJ really went down hill when it was taken over by that Fox News asshole.

    Of course, nothing else in media tops the cuck Barack Obama, who made a tradition of insulting every father in America, every Father’s Day — usually from the pulpit of a black church in the heartland (I’m sure everyone on Dalrock was shocked to see such a message – we all know that establishment christians love fathers and respect fatherhood, yo).

    Despite these laughable attempts at AMOGing on a national scale, we should note that only a couple of years later, young Malia was in the news twerking, smoking dope and getting drunk at Lollapalooza (all under age). Absolutely pathetic, and funny comeuppance for this supposed example of competent fatherhood.

  27. ys says:

    OKRickety-
    Are you suggesting that accepting gays or transgenders is as important as honoring fathers?

    No and yes. I think we shouldn’t accept homosexuality (aka sodomy) and transgenderism as non-sins…the church is doing it though, slowly. However, the world has been leading in these arenas for…how long? A long time. Ellen’s character was gay on her sitcom almost 20 years ago. The war dates back further, of course.

    Honoring fathers is of course, good. Christians should get about and do it, and never should have stopped. We followed the world into feminism, and, I think, we will be some of the last to shed the vestiges of it. Dishonoring fathers is one vestige. The church ought to have rejected feminism full stop, of course, but we know how that all turned out.

  28. thedeti says:

    “where the topic is … casual sex and how young men are engaged in perpetual adolescence.”

    Sometimes this is one of the most beneficial parts of being around here, is noticing all the hostility to men and feminine imperative in today’s culture. It’s really subtle sometimes. It’s as D has said, that sometimes the most difficult aspect of this is just getting people to see there’s a problem. This is one of those instances.

The church ought to have rejected feminism full stop, of course, but we know how that all turned out.

    This is only partially true, and the false part is critical to understand. Christians followed feminism part of the way when it comes to dishonoring fathers. But then Christians took it even further, with a zeal that even feminists find striking. The movie Mom’s Night Out followed the popular cultural script of idiot dads who can’t get anything right. But Courageous and War Room were much darker in their contempt for fathers, and that darkness is unique to Christian culture. Christians don’t hate fathers because feminists made them do it; Christians (especially conservative Christians) hate fathers much more than feminists do.

  30. Elspeth says:

    Dalrock:

    I’ve given your assertion some thought and I think your statement (“Conservative Christian leaders hate fathers”) goes too far.

    These men and women hate their own fathers.

    I haven’t done the research into the ages of the men you cite here but many of them (like the Kendrick brothers) seem to be about my age.

    Many of us had fathers who were of the Silents generation. Men for whom the phrase “man up” would be nonexistent because what was the alternative? These were men who were often “Silent” in more ways than one.

    They were followed by a sea change in what was expected of men in terms of emotional openness. And they ignored it, refusing to play ball and give their kids what they felt they were owed. For this they are being labeled “mean”, “unloving”, “emotionally absent”, etc.

    Their bleating just reveals how much they have internalized the ingratitude and narcissistic nature of the dominant culture. Rather than appreciating their fathers for setting an example of strong manhood for them to emulate, they hate them for not embracing the softer more feminine brand of masculinity the postmodern era extols but no one respects.

    Then they project this neuroses onto all fathers and invite others to join them in it.

    By the way…Happy Fathers Day.

  31. thedeti says:

    I read the McGurn piece again.

    Men are bad and need to be called out because they want to have no strings attached sex. Men are the ones pushing these poor dears for sex. These women wouldn’t be having sex if men weren’t pushing them to do it, and if they weren’t getting so drunk.

    But….

    These women are having sex because they want to, drunk or not. These women aren’t trying to get husbands and boyfriends. They’re having no strings attached sex with attractive men. Would they take relationships with those men? Sure they would. But if they can’t have relationships with those men, they’ll take the sex, because sex with a hot guy is better than nothing from a hot guy, and it’s better than a relationship with an unattractive guy.

    Women are making their own decisions too. They’re not entitled to cover for those decisions, and it’s time they were called out on it. Honestly and straightforwardly.

  32. Wow, I must be an alien from space, because my father has been there literally whenever I needed him. He served honorably in the US Army, provided us a home, and taught us how to be honest and studious. Heck, maybe HE was the space alien.

    Interesting. I don’t think it explains the entire phenomenon, but your theory is certainly backed up by the review of the movie Courageous at Focus on the Family:

    Fatherhood isn’t for the fainthearted. It’s a calling every bit as demanding—maybe even more so—as being a, say, fireman or policeman.

    That’s the life lesson Adam Mitchell, an Albany, Ga., deputy sheriff, learns in Courageous, Sherwood Pictures’ follow-up to Fireproof. Adam is someone many fathers will identify with. He wears his uniform with pride. He provides for his wife, Victoria, and his two children. And because of that he figures he’s not actually required to join his teenage son, Dylan, in a 5K father-son race. And even though 9-year-old Emily is the apple of his eye, he’s quite positive that he’s too dignified (read: embarrassed) to dance with her in a parking lot just because she begs. “I’m dancing with you in my heart, honey,” he explains.

    Let me put it another way: Adam works hard. He deserves a little TV time at the end of the day.

    The review accurately describes the pettiness of the charges against the main character in Courageous, and yet clearly the reviewer whole heartedly approves of the pettiness. Even more troubling is how widely loved Courageous was, not because of the stellar acting, but because of the (petty) message, which is taken as a Christian message.

    Then they project this neuroses onto all fathers and invite others to join them in it.

    Even with this description, we still end up with a near universal hatred of fathers, in general. This is a truly ugly, vile thing.

    By the way…Happy Fathers Day.

    Thank you.

    Just like Dr. Moore, and the Courageous review I quoted above, they know the fathers they are maligning are good men who are doing right by their families.

    Dalrock said :

    Christians (especially conservative Christians) hate fathers much more than feminists do.

    And this is the stunning revelation that no other blog would have ever discovered. Even those who knew cuckservatives were feminists didn’t realize that they could be *worse* than feminists. But they are.

    This is also why in Sweden, the laws around divorce and custody are not nearly as misandric in the US. Joint custody (and hence little or no monetary CS) is the default legal position. Over here, the brutal CS with imputation of income and imprisonment for inability to pay, is the work of cuckservatives more so than ‘feminists’. Cuckservatives think the 1996 ‘Welfare Reform’ is a victory, when in fact they replaced it with something far worse, in both fairness and economic impact…

    I twice turned off ad blocker. Both times, I started getting ads by “beats” — there would be 5 minutes of peace, as I am reading, then abruptly very loud music would start playing. I could not find a way to stop the ads from giving sound, so I just reenabled ad blocker. That is unfortunate, as I would prefer to allow the revenue source for Dalrock.

    Is there any way to eliminate ads that use sound?

    William McGurn’s short biography is available here:

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_McGurn

    nndb.com/people/507/000213865/

    wsj.com/news/author/5470

    He’s almost 60 and was raised in a Roman Catholic family in San Diego, probably in some comfy, neat suburban neighborhood largely isolated from social dysfunction and deviance. He has studied philosophy and communications and worked for cucked mainstream newspapers. Basically he’s yet another propagator and enforcer of state ideology. He’s married but has no biological children. He lives in a cozy, rich neighborhood in NJ. He’s pretty much a boomer cuck. Realistically speaking, not much can be expected from old men like him, as far as sexual realism goes. He has obviously lived in an upper-class bubble all his life, and was never exposed to the Red Pill.

  48. Höllenhund says:

    On a different note, the apex fallacy is probably more widespread in mainstream middle-class society than we realize. Sexually unsuccessful, “slacking” average men are invisible to women, but they are also invisible to middle-class and upper-class normie men. If a middle-class guy doesn’t get married “in time” and doesn’t find some well-paying cozy office job, he’ll be socially isolated from the so-called normies. His family will probably be somewhat ashamed of him, and remain silent on his state of affairs. On the other hand, a “slacker” will be socially visible if he’s a sexually successful alpha type.

    So we end up in a situation where the average middle-class normie like this McGurn dude is unaware of the true extent to which other middle-class men fail to follow the usual socially approved script (i.e. display beta provider traits, get married and find some normie job by the time you’re 30 or so, take out mortgages to buy a nice house and a family car, have 1-2 high-achieving children), he’s unaware of the sheer extent of social dysfunction among the lower classes, but he’s surrounded by women who regularly complain about sleazy louts who “use” them and other women. So he assumes there’s a huge number of alpha louts out there, “using” clueless, blameless women and breaking their hearts, not caring about the children they sire etc.

    There’s also a sort of reverse apex fallacy going on. In other words, average middle-class men only notice women that are more or less pretty and in good shape, getting good middle-class jobs, following the usual script for women (i.e. get married at 30 or so, have 1-2 children). They don’t notice the extent of promiscuity and deviance (drinking, cocain use, serial monogamy etc.) these women actually engage in, and they also fail to notice the sheer number of lower-class and even middle-class women doing badly (becoming single mothers, substance abuse etc.)

    Some fathers encourage their daughters to be NFL football players.

    From this article about a young woman, who might become the first female NFL player: http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2715385-nfl-first-female-player-becca-longo-kicker

    Bob Longo also was intrigued by this female kicker, but for a different reason. He had seen Heidi and her father, Rance, spend countless hours together on different football fields, the father shagging balls and offering love and support to his daughter. To Bob’s eye, the two were a picture of joy.

    “I always envied them,” Bob says. “They had a great father-daughter relationship. I hoped that one day I’d have the same kind of connection with Becca.”

    Soon they would.

  50. Scott says:

    Over at Cane’s site, a discussion about frontier women defending themselves on the prairie has come to an attempt to make a distinction between “capable” homsteading wife who takes care of business when the farmer/rancher is away and a woman who locks herself in the closet with the kids with a gun and only shoots if she is cornered. The matter goes a couple of directions, including what type of response a woman alone should be “honored” for:

    I believe this woman (“a mother who locks herself in a room with her children and shoots the violent bastards who kick in her door”) is an outlier. She is not normative. She is not representative of capabilities of the great majority of women. A sane man should not expect his wife to be this outlier.

    And, actually, I don’t believe they do. I think men who say that his wife could shoot intruders would not be ashamed of her if she did not. Nor do I think other men hearing about it would find it shameful either. However, that man (and other men) would find it shameful if a man did not shoot intruders. Do you disagree?

    Think about that, because there is a principle at play here which is central to Men’s Sphere criticism of our society: The linkage of power and responsibility, and the misattribution of honor or dishonor. Specifically, we gripe about the responsibility and dishonor that is loaded on men while power and honor is denied them. This is the other side of that coin where women are given glory and honor, but shielded from responsibility and dishonor.

    And while I do find Elspeth’s comment above to be valuabe, the reverse side of this problem appears to be tied up in a couple different problems.

    First, “honor” has no operational meaning outside of how is has been hijacked and now used to describe the showering of praise that moms on mothers day receive (and pretty much every other day in commercials, TV, sermons, etc). This is not “honor,” so it is irrelevant whether or not fathers get some “equal” portion of it.

    “Honor” is a participation trophy for weaklings. (Unless you are referring to dads).

    Second, when you combine this praise/obsequiousness with the ridiculous standard for fathers (as described by Elspeth) of cartoonish chivalry/servant leader/openly taking about his emotions/blah blah as the only type of dad who deserves “honor” there will be great weeping and gnashing of teeth when someone suggest fatherhood sit at its rightful place of honor.

    Because “my dad was mean once.”

    @Dalrock-
    That article you had on Russell Moore was good, and frightening. I think that is part of the reason the church is so hard on fathers. They know they can be and get away with it.
    If you beat up and abuse fathers, and make marriage a bad deal, the dutiful, beta Christian men in their 20s (me at that age) will still do the job, and marry a girl. They’re Christian! They want sex! They know they cannot have it, according to the Bible, and not be in sin. So they do what they have to do.
    Whereas, in the world….if a man is not being respected, he will move on. Some non-Christian women are realizing this, and genuinely praising the dads of their kids. Because they want them around. Christian women already know their men will stay around. Like Russell Moore, they know it, and that makes the dishonor easier.

    I got to thinking about how many successful men hold other men who work for/report/etc. to them to high standards. That is a good thing and if that was all that would be reasonable if that was happening in what Dalrock is reporting. Men generally respond better to being challenged than with gushing praise without any challenge or separate from overcoming challenges.

    The problem today is that women are praised so much that the hassling of men must be taken in that context and is therefore very offensive.

  54. BillyS says:

    Reading part of Dalrock’s next post also brings up that another error is that men are being held accountable for things they don’t control – the choices of women. That is the problem, not being challenged in general.
