The New Direction!

When I first started this blog, I wasn't exactly sure why I was doing it. Regardless of which, I first opened this blog some time in 2016 on Tumblr. At the time, Barack Obama was in his final year as president, and America's culture was beginning to shift in the direction it would eventually head towards the following year; what is basically an act of revenge.

It is now 2018, albeit very early on in it. And now we're being told it's not okay to be white, and that all men are rapists. The frustrating thing is, well, we've been headed in this direction for some time now, you only need notice the cracks. But as seen by some of the stuff I've shared, we've been emasculating men for some time now, all for the sake of humor at their expense.

At the same time, though, we haven't been treating women well, either. Regardless of how men are treated, the Male Gaze is still in effect, as seen in works like Jupiter Ascending and countless others. So really, no side is getting off really well in this environment of The Current Year (TM).

So we're going to be handling things much differently than we used to. We've seen pages like The Hawkeye  Initiative counter the problem of sexism against women, and now let's take a look at the problem in the opposite direction. Starting now, we're going to be doing a few changes to show how gender roles are enforced in society by force, and how those roles fuel a distaste of men.

That means we're going to start becoming unscripted. That also means I'll be posting something when I find the best example of how to do it. Also, if you follow me for the pics, we'll be doing "art appreciation" posts whenever showcasing the good stuff.

As times change, so too must this blog. We hope you find the experience eye-opening!
