ITLR- Further into the Pussification of the American MalePosted: November 12, 2013 | |
OUT ladies. GET OUT. i need to talk to the guys.
unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve heard of the NFL controversy in miami. icognito has been placed on indefinite suspension, martin is (probably) suing everyone he can and still playing victim. there’s been some stir about this in the sphere. i too was surprised.
surprised it took this long for something like this to happen.
i’ve long complained about how “soft” the nfl was getting. hell, if you simply mess up tom brady’s hair you’ll get 15 and an automatic first down. you get a flag for ANYTHING now. and it really takes away from the intensity of the game. if i were looking at a +$25,000 fine, i’d second guess really laying into a guy. ultimately it takes away a game that was designed to be, well…..brutal.
so martin quit the nfl. THE.N.F.L. as i’m sure anyone who watches knows you just don’t walk into playing in the nfl. you have to get into a decent college program, then play well enough to catch an nfl team’s eye. hell, there’s well known player that used to blog (Kane, looking at you) who played college football. while i’ve never played college or nfl ball, i have played football, and talking shit/busting balls is a big part of the game.
more than part of a game, it’s part of being a MAN.
what REALLY go to me were the commentary leading to, “well, it reflects back to kids being bullied and the inherent bully culture in the US.” KIDS. KIDS are being used as a tangential argument against a GROWN.MAN’S.ACTIONS. whatthefuck ever. i have a question guys, would YOU want martin on YOUR team now?
here, as an active duty male in the military, if you show any signs of being bothered when guys are busting on you, it just gets worse. you get an insult hurled at you, you swing back at them (with an insuly, not your fist dummy. lol). but, there’s been a slow demasculinization of the military, now it’s becoming more and more obvious. all the mandatory sexual assault “stand-down’s”, the overly PC mentality, the “more tolerant and inclusive” atmosphere. i honestly can’t wait to be done with this orginazation.
well, when i came in there was a little ceremony, it’s call “tacking on”. what that is is when you make the next paygrade, guys of that paygrade and above would line up and punch the shit out of your right arm (the arm that your rank is sewn). while it sounds pretty barbaric (and it can be), it’s actually a compliment.
i had just made E4. i was stationed in sicily. went out back to check off my ambulance and out of nowhere i was picked up (fuck you matt) and carried back into the ER. there were about 8-9 guys lined up to give me my medicine. with each punch, i looked at the guy and said, “is that it? fucking pussy.” my arm hurt for 2-3 days after.
you NEVER tack on someone you don’t know or don’t like. so i was proud i got tacked.
well, there’s another “tradition” unique to the navy- “crossing the line”. when a ship crosses the eqautor, they have a day long “ceremony”. and it’s fucking disgusting. well, now it’s been tamed and is a shadow of what it used to be. participation is completely voluntary. but still, the neavy felt the need to make it more “inclusive” and less “demeaning” hell, even the chief’s “initiation” is a joke compared to how it used to be. if i made E7, i wouldn’t even participate. then i wouldn’t be a “chief”, i’d be an “E7”- which is supposed to be a slight within the community.
at my first command, i ended up in EMS. after i completed my check in, my crew chief told me i needed a tour of the weapons stain. i was placed in full c-spine precautions, strapped to the top of the ambulance and driven around the dusty backroads. then i was placed leaning against the fence close to the gate to enter the base with a sign taped to me that said, “boot EMT”. i had countless cars honk at me. then, i was taken back to the annex, hung upside down on the spine board and had a 14 gauge IV started in my hand. and 14 gauge is HUGE, and the hand is the most painful place to have an IV.
i didn’t complain, and i never ratted. and the guys treated me like a member of the tribe.
the navy’s word for these events: hazing. hazing has been prohibited for the past 15 years or so. but what feminists and uber beta’s fail to realize is that these “traditions” serve a purpose. it builds character, morale and unity. the guys “hazing” you have been through it, and once you’re “in”, you’ll be busting on the new guys.
we now live in a society where the majority has to make sacrifices and changes for the few. and you can see that on a multitude of platforms. it’s been going on for a long time (mostly unnoticed or in silence). well now, it doesn’t even try yo hide it’s agenda. i feel bad for the guys that have 8-9 more years left until retirement (they do to), and i feel even WORSE for the guys coming in.
so, no….martin going out like such a pussy doesn’t surprise me in the least. i’ve been watching this going on a while now. and big surprise, the dulfish lost tonight againt a winless bucs. there was a good amount of talk about icognito (a team leader) not being there to rally the guys. and SEVERAL players have came to his defense. he was even called “the alpha male” of the team. sad. just sad. again, if shit hit’s the fane ladies, will there be anyone there to protect you? if not, send a thank you note to the feminists. but i shan’t sink into bitterness because hey….
at least i still have hockey. GO FLYERS!!!!
