With the campaigning starting we are seeing the pandering beginning already. Seeing someone running that is outside the “norm” brings forth issues concerning “ism’s” again. With Obama, racism was brought up and questioned on its overt or subversive nature. And now with Clinton re-entering the fray questions of sexism and a glass ceiling are floating around. This is not an issue about candidates; this is simply about what is and what isn’t evident. Just as many people would stake claims that racism is over, they like to say that sexism is over as well. Sorry, but that just is not the case. Sexism, ideals regarding what men and women are capable of and should be able to do. Simone de Beavoir, author of The Second Sex (1949) is such a foundational piece in the women’s rights movement and feminism. “Representation of the world, like the… [Read more]

There is an enormous difference between defending a woman and white knighting. When a person (male or female) is being bullied, or taken advantage of a good guy will speak up or step up to defend them in one way or another – this is not white knighting. When a woman is online arguing against or about men in any form, the male who champions her cause (no matter how flawed it is), has no romantic connection to her, and is doing so to appear different from other males, that man is a white knight. White knights are seen as “male feminists” most times but this is not entirely fair to male feminists. Feminist rules change based on who you talk to and some self-identified male feminists are not out to cut our balls off in lieu of defending some angry chick spazzing out on… [Read more]

Recently the New York Daily News published a survey that stated that men would prefer if their dates chipped in for the bill. The number of men surveyed yielded 64% saying that they paid but would rather the woman had offered up a part of it, but they felt ashamed to bring it up. These men are suckers. Here’s a pro-tip for the men in that 64 percentile – classy women ALWAYS offer to pay the bill, leave a tip or at least her half of it. I am talking about the first date here. If she doesn’t offer and she isn’t a “traditionalist woman” (see below) then it is decision time. There are 3 types of women out there dating: 1. Traditionalist Women – These women do not care for anything that feminists have done to men in the modern age, hell they oppose… [Read more]

Many women seek money in their mates while enjoying the luxuries of a modern society of gender equality. Men on the other hand have not fully evolved into this and still find it necessary to provide for their wives as well as themselves. Women in the dating world use buzzwords and codes when describing a man of money. Code that can be deciphered through words like: “I want a man that is ambitious” or “I want a man with a degree and goals”. All of this translates into their want for a man of high salary. Appearances may die over time but a man’s desire for appearances doesn’t  Wealth and riches comes and goes but a woman’s desire for shiny things lasts a lifetime. With that said, why is it that society calls men superficial for seeking beauty yet calls women “smart” for seeking a wealthy… [Read more]

I follow a number of attractive women on Social Media and there has always been this trend of creeper, loser-types who post comments that they assume is flattering to women. Most of the time it is internet bravery that comes out as creeper text because the guys posting are anonymous, horny, and could care less what anyone thinks. Yesterday, I ran into the same situation on Google+ with one of the women in my circles where she snatched her photograph down because of the zerg of sophomoric commentary about her looks. The White Knights came out en masse to dab the tears from her internet eyes, not knowing that like the former commentators, they were as much a part of the problem as the offenders. Why do I say this? Well the problem with White Knighting is that it normally comes with the game of… [Read more]

Recently in the wonderful world of Twitter the hashtag #TellAFeministThankYou mysteriously began to trend. As was expected the hateful were there to talk about bad men and the trolls were out full force to tell women to get back in the kitchen, stay ugly, and stay lonely and single… because that’s what feminists are… right? I’ve always wondered if self-labeled “feminists” do anything outside of post angry replies on blogs, sign online petitions and tweet… but I guess that’s modern day activism for you – tweets, snark and the buzzword of the day MISOGYNY! The term feminist has gone from a word which once had meaning to something mutated, unsure of itself, and many times contradictory of its purpose (depends on which “feminist” you talk to) so to say that a few guys and gals were annoyed by this hashtag is an understatement. The following are… [Read more]

Editor’s Note about Chicks We Dig: There are tons of angry women (and men) out there, confused with life because they hate men, claim they don’t need us, yet are attracted to us all the same so they feel forced to lash out in numerous creative, sexist ways. Here at Hall of The Black Dragon we don’t subscribe to men who hate women and women who hate men. To this end we would like to highlight women who  are able to do that feminist thing without delving down the lazy path of hating our entire gender, so we’ve created a new section called Chicks We Dig because hate is lazy and unproductive and we believe that those who do things right should have all the exposure in the world. GirlWritesWhat is my new hero.  She sits at her kitchen table and spits the truth about… [Read more]

Men are not in trouble, the gender war is another faux problem created to mask us all from the reality of the overall human situation. If you find yourself reading articles by men and women claiming that men of today are hopeless, lost and unnecessary, please consider the source before you let their assertion upset you. Men have not been denied any privileges in the modern age, we haven’t been locked down, and we haven’t been made to relocate. What has happened is that the playing field that many women and men fought to have leveled is more than on its way to evening out. When change like this happens, much like segregation, change in laws, change in housing or hell any change whatsoever, the bigots come through in droves with their articles, one-liners and commentary of hate disguised as intelligent discourse. Lately the focus… [Read more]
