All My Heroes are Men, most of the people I despise are Women.


I know an odd title for an essay, but to give you an idea of what precipitated it, pop over to emma the emo’s blog for a read of this – Women Have no Honour.

“To me it appears that those gender norms are promoted because they are good for society. If men are courageous, they can defend their country. If women are chaste, men feel like being courageous in the first place. I suppose men are still expected to be courageous nowadays (they are drafted), while promiscuity is no big deal for women anymore. In this way, I suppose women really don’t have honor.

 This type of honor is different from the one most people think about when they hear the word. It’s not merely staying true to your principles. It’s society’s way to hold people in check, even when their own principles are lacking or badly developed. Having honor is staying true not to your feelings, but group rules.”

I’ve been doing a lot of research lately, and as I mentioned in the essay about those fruitcakes over at Holy Hormones, and nope, not linking to it again, it was reading random articles about the exploits of men, through the ages that restored my sanity, didn’t prevent me from getting a headache, but made having a headache bearable.

With regard to the title as well, when I think of men, words like nobility, honour, courage, integrity and decency spring to mind, as for women – and being the most likely to make it onto the list of people I despise the most – the feeling is mutual – at this point in my life – it only amuses me – to be honest it never actually bothered me – that women in general tend to dislike me – intensely.  In that extra special “way” that women have of manifesting their “disapproval” fortunately for most of my life, any of the things that women value and attempt to punish you for, by withdrawing or sabotaging, are things that I have never actually valued.

Chief amongst them being admittance to the “girl club” or being “one of the girls” I cannot think of anything that would induce a greater feeling of horror in me that either of those things.

To be fair, I do have, and have had lifelong friends, female friends, who without exception have been women “not like that” I could tell you stories!

So, it has been almost a revelation to me over the last year or so to encounter women like Karen Straughan (GirlWritesWhat), Janet Bloomfield (Judgybitch), Diana Davison (realityisabitch) and astonishingly, a growing number of other females who are not total and utter wretches. Who think, who can string a sentence together, who can objectively and with great intelligence and humour explore an idea, express a concept that does not begin and end with their bloody vaginas and/or uterus’s

The reason – because those qualities that I mentioned that spring to mind when I think of men, spring to my mind when I think of these women – which can only lead to one conclusion.

These are not male qualities per se, they are human qualities of the highest order, ANY human being can CHOOSE to ascribe, to develop, to enact and to display them.

Nobility, honour, courage, integrity and decency are human qualities that women en masse have CHOSEN to reject, to fail to develop, to strive for – in favour of selfishness, self-absorption, pettiness, spitefulness, vindictiveness, vanity and egotism.

By the way, this is not a NAWALT (Not All Women Are Like that) thing – this is a WHY are most women “like that” – thing, and WHY do they not STOP being “like that”

Much is made of the so-called higher order of female qualities, such as caring and nurturing and compassion, of the sacrifices women apparently make for their children, for their “men” of all the tasks that they perform for and on behalf of others.

In fact, I don’t believe it would be an exaggeration to say that women en masse will, and do beat that drum persistently, continuously and ad nauseum about how caring, nurturing, and compassionate they are. What is derisory is that these things – the caring, the nurturing of children in particular – are what one would expect as a natural pattern of behaviour – normal, having children by default assumes that one DOES these things, not as some extra special effort on your part but because – THATS WHAT YOU’RE SUPPOSED TO DO!  If you are a decent human being, that is.

There is one woman I want add to the three female human beings who I’ve mentioned as worthy of admiration and respect and to be counted among honourable human beings – my mother.

Two of my mother’s oft repeated phrases, whenever she felt someone was getting “a bit above themselves” were these:

“self praise is no praise”


“empty vessels make the most noise”

From her perspective, praise for doing or achieving something was a gift, a gift from others, an acknowledgment that you had done or achieved something worthwhile – demanding it, or expecting it, or reciting your supposed achievements to garner it, invalidated and negated the value of your supposed achievement, or in this instance – quality.

Because, the other thing she was adamant about was this – if the only reason you do something is to GET praise – then doing it is a gesture, an empty shallow gesture meant to benefit ONLY you.

Back to My Heroes.

One of the things that marks out these particular men below, both real and fictional, as worthy heroes and role models, not just for boys but for girls too, is that invariably they were flawed human beings, they were not as women like to portray themselves “visions of perfection” they strove and failed, they were beset by doubts and fears, and they did not consider themselves to BE heroes, they were doing what they believed was the right thing to do – and without exception, for and behalf of others with no expectation of “praise” of “personal gain” or even of sometimes surviving their endeavours.

Janet Bloomfield (aka Judgybitch) wrote an excellent piece on one of my modern day heroes – a fictional character – John McClane – of the Die Hard series of films – I have to say the original is my favourite, and will admit to a secret “admiration” for Bruce Willis – but that’s just between me and thee – ok?

John is everyman, he does what does because he cannot in all conscience do otherwise and live with himself – and no-one else will step up – Janet’s article nails it to a tee, much better than I could.

William Wilberforce the nobility, the courage and the relentless persistence of this man in the face of personal struggles, of mockery, of the disdain of his peers is admirably captured in the film Amazing Grace slavery was, until feminism came along, one of the most egregious stains on the history of humanity – slavery is to dehumanise a human being, to reduce a human being to an object, a piece of property. In William Wilberforce’s time – this was “normal” and here we are in the 21st century, and yet again we have a culture where it is “normal” to view human beings as objects of utility, as property, as less than human.

Aragorn (Strider) – One of my all time favourite books, “The Lord of The Rings” – first read it when I was 16, and read it every year for a long long time – then the  films came out and regrettably I haven’t read it since then.  Aragorn displays that other quality that men have and exercise on behalf of, and for others – leadership – leadership in the face of ,and in spite of their own fears and doubts about themselves, about their leadership abilities – he leads because someone must lead – someone must take responsibility – someone must put the mission first, and their own fears and doubts aside – Aragorn is that man, and is every man who has ever walked towards danger, towards the source of their greatest fear, and towards that which would “chill the heart of me” for others, for a cause, for a mission, for others.

Firefighters, rescue workers, soldiers, almost all men, almost all faced with constant danger, constant threat and always walking towards it, facing it, protecting others from it. Protecting women from it.

“If by my life or death I can protect you, I will. ” Aragorn.

― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

Ghenghis Khan – now you all think I’ve completely lost the plot. Read this book – Bones of the Hills by Conn Iggulden published in 2009 by Harper – website for more information.

Ghenghis Khan forged a civilisation, a Nation, a nomadic nation out of innumerable warring tribes – never a builder of roads, of monuments, Ghenghis Khan was a unique and exceptional individual, his exploits by our standards were bloodthirsty, but he was a man in, and of his time.

“In the seventeenth century the Muslim chronicler Abu’l Ghazi wrote:

Under the reign of Ghenghis Khan, all the country between Iran and the land of the Turks enjoyed such a peace that a man might have journeyed from sunrise to sunset with a golden platter on his head without suffering the least violence from anyone.”

From: Bones of The Hills by Conn Iggulden; Historical Note – page 542 (own copy – emphasis added)

Feminism and feminists have corrupted and have poisoned our cultures and our nations, have harnessed the ephemeral grip on honour that women have always had, and to be fair were expected to have, unlike the true hard won honour that men have always strived, struggled and fought for  – has diminished to nothingness that load upon women, till to all intents and purposes women now believe they have no need for honour, or integrity or decency.

Sadly, this has become a self-fulfilling prophecy, we worship things, we live in and on the most superficial plane of existence, the banal, the trite, and the asinine have become our touchstones, our standard. The keepers of these things are feminists, they insist, they demand, they blackmail and they coerce so that our cultures remain – dishonourable – superficial – tawdry.

 “A nation lives forever through its concepts, honour, and culture. It is for these reasons that the rulers of nations must judge and act not only on the basis of physical and material interests of the nation but on the basis of the nation’s historical honour, of the nation’s eternal interests. Thus: not bread at all costs, but honour at all costs.”

Corneliu Zelea Codreanu, For My Legionaries

So, when I say that I despise women, with very few rare exceptions, it is not only because they have no honour, but they CHOSE deliberately to have no honour – because – it IS a choice.

The last word goes to my mother:

“You may chose any course of action you wish, good bad or indifferent, what you don’t get to chose are the consequences”

We are living with the consequences of a culture infected with the poison of dishonourable, corrupt and toxic feminism.

    Without a doubt, men have become weary, become utterly sick to death of carrying the load, carrying the burden of not just maintaining the physical. cultural and political structures of the civilisation THEY created, but of being derided, despised and vilified for how it is unravelling – as a direct result of the actions of WOMEN, engineered, facilitated and manipulated by feminism and feminists.

    I have no longer the patience for listening to female excuses such as “but that’s just the way it is” or “everybody thinks/believes/knows that”


    Stop – Just stop. Sigh.

    A thought provoking article again. Not totally on topic but the Ghenghis Kahn mention took me to my alpha/beta male (plus zeta) thoughts of late…I have for the last few weeks been starting and restarting an article for my blog on…even the emphasise changes daily! I look at the vitriol that pours onto the net against mra, , mgtow, etc (and yes absolutely towards women who support men), but looking past the ‘how dare we seek to disrespect fems as the last word on gender issues’ and wonder how much disdain actually arises from women at a biological level to us speaking up? We are the ‘whinny male’ we are not being the strong silent male architype that we were ‘taught’ to aspire towards. Men involved in humanist and mens right get slammed both from the political fems and from the ‘ordinary woman’ and relegated to beta (or worse) male status. That is stfu you are not worthy of being listened to…you are weak! This would also account for why many men stay silent…quite aside from the many that side with fems simply because thats just another avenue towards the ‘promised land’ and of course employment in the ‘helping’ professions. Any thoughts on this double whammy?

      Hi Max,

      I always find that if I cannot organise my thoughts around a subject it usually means I’ve missed something, or I have not considered other aspects of what it is – for what it’s worth I usually go on a random meandering journey on the net – I call it comfort reading – I read stuff that inspires me, that draws me into another time, another era – I read stuff about things that I like – now don’t laugh but I like pirates, natural history, inventors, explorers and if that fails to kickstart my thinking – there’s always John Connolly, Ian Rankin or as a last resort Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.

      Women greatest fear is that men “wont like them” and at the same time are angry with themselves for needing men to “like them” feminists are the wellspring of this toxic conflict within women – granted, the pioneers of this were driven by their hatred for men, were infused with this hatred and literally wrote their vitriolic screeds in bile and spite.

      Feminists took women’s fears, the greatest one of all being that they might have to grow up! Should BE adults, should be accountable – and wove a narrative that finally and irrevocably absolved women from the necessity to become adult human beings.

      But, it’s bloody tiring and wearying having to babysit a grown woman – so – feminism created another narrative – male guilt – now we have two conflicts – two dichotomies – child-women and guilt ridden men.

      For the last 50 or so years, feminism has been adding and subtracting, rearranging and reinventing these two narratives, in order to keep that pot of bile and vitriol simmering away, the problem is they need to keep adding new ingredients to keep the intensity level up – rape culture – pay gap – all these new weapons to guilt men into continuing to baby sit women through life – well – babies need to grow up. Learn to walk, learn to talk and learn to fall down without having a meltdown – they learn to get up and try again.

      To stretch the metaphor to breaking point – my children got one – just one episode of tantrum throwing – the next try got them put into a room and ignored till they stopped. And no, the room wasn’t locked, but every last toy, book and distraction was removed.

      It is time for men to start ignoring women, to NOT seek or expect or require them to listen, to understand or even to acknowledge that men have valid legitimate issues that need to be addressed.

      In effect – to say to women – your input is neither asked for nor required – now please kindly piss off and take your petulant, whiny and boring petty “issues” with you. Thanks.

        You are the mother that these psycho feminists never had !

        I dare say that if a majority of the mothers were like you feminism would never have taken off.

    When US gender-feminists pervert American law enforcement to the degree that American mens basic constitutionally protected due process rights are being routinely routed, that means the the manufactured statistics Alliances have overshot their mark.

    Hi Anja, I really enjoyed reading your article and must say that you resumed things very well. I really liked your mothers sayings as they are very wise. I would also like to say that for sure she is a great woman, proud of her daughter.
    Many thanks for this great article.

      Hello and Welcome John

      Thank you for kind comment, my mother was indeed a wise woman, sadly she passed away a few years ago – I hope that I have not dissapointed her, and that “she learnt me well”

    Thanks mam, really pleased to know that women like yourself still exist. I would just like to make a statement on the so called ‘Honor’ for which the feminists fight for day and night, which is
    Honor is not demanded but earned.

    Great work, Anja. I do agree that many women lack honour. In fact, they despise those that do have it. It’s one of the reasons why doing the right thing mostly earns you a swift kick in the ass these days.

      Hi donzaloog

      We always despise what we lack in ourselves, don’t we? – hence why the concept of honour would induce a sneer and a curled lip in most women and all feminists.
