Some background to all this. Recently in Australia some women's working spaces have been created. My understanding is that these spaces exist to help women with business start ups: they provide working space, advice, networking and so on. They have been warmly welcomed and have large memberships.
The two Brisbane men thought that a similar working space for men was also warranted. Calling themselves Nomadic Thinkers they have set up a place which aims to "address male related social issues," to "help men be men" and to "launch men in business and life".
Some of the thinking behind the men's working space is quite good. Here is a sample:
Men are physical and practical creatures. We require camaraderie and social time with other men (without female chaperones). We need to provide for ourselves, then our families and then our communities (in that order as we mature further), this give us purpose.
Despite having no experience in any other time period, I would say that we live in the most challenging time and culture to be a man.
Historically (and unarguably.. though some will try) men's primary role has been to protect and provide for their families and communities.
Due to the fact that we are an incredibly intelligent species, we have created a world where those tasks now look incredibly different. In fact, very few of us need to protect our families from any real threats...
Furthermore, not only have we lost our roles but it is becoming common place for men to be persecuted for expressing their masculinity.
...Alas, as is so common in human nature, feminism has gone past its desired point and is polarizing to the extreme other end. We have become a culture that praises androgyny, glorifies gender role removal and tolerates all beliefs and choices... except from traditional (conservative I guess) views...
With the media pushing images of passive men, the clumsy dad, the goofy and dim-witted boyfriend, the incompetent boss, men are being seduced into a placated and listless expression of themselves. Is this so bad? Yes, absolutely! This is the reason we have an unprecedented rate of marriage breakdowns...show me a woman who respects a guy that gets walked all over?
While MGTOW [Men Going Their Own Way] community advocate checking out on marriage and women the reality is that will lead to quality men not reproducing and not raising the next generation. Simply put think of it as a numbers game. If you have kids and you are raising them well. This have a multiplier effect. Your ideas and worldview can be bestowed upon them meaning your vote at elections increases, your wealth production increases and your general well-being can increase.
That being said the risk of finding a quality mate is high. With increasing divorce rates and laws such as no-fault divorce and Disney's absolute destruction of what Love and real relationships are with an obsession with infatuation. But they are out there and even in the West.
It's generally good stuff. I'd encourage any Brisbane readers to think about supporting the venture (the website is here). It's a good example of an innovative way of creating alternative spaces. The pity is that they are pioneers and so have to bear the brunt of SJW anguish alone - ideally these ventures would be springing up all over the place.
