“The Way Of Men” by Jack Donovan is a 2012 book that claims to answer the question: “What is Masculinity?”
But does Donovan succeed in answering the question? No, and you’ll be shocked by how delusional, subversive and misleading he is.
Let’s get to the meat of it:
Evolutionary Biology & Psychology
Did you know that in nature, men are naturally prone to eating berries instead of apples?
The berries were always close at hand when they tracked animals during hunt. This caused men to often grab blueberries on the go. Apples, on the other hand, were always located high up in trees and seldom eaten by men.
Because of that, men today should actually prefer blueberries over apples. Their bodies have evolved to eat bluberries, it makes them stronger and increases their lifespan,
That’s a completely made up story that illustrates the main flaw of “The Way Of Men“.
Most of the content is just fantasies…
Jack Donovan constantly writes about ancient tribes and how men functioned in groups back in the day. What masculinity was, and how it dictated their place in the group hierarchy.
He constantly backs his claim with just-so evolutionary psychology that always has an explanation for everything within the modern man’s mind.
That is what is strange with this book:
Believe it or not — there are loads of men around today. Especially for the author, who’s a member of masculine fetishizing groups and pagan LARP organizations.
That means there are vast opportunities to observe the behavioral patterns of men today. And even though you may argue that a majority of them are feminized soy boys, a significant number of men will show the characteristics that make them “masculine men”.
That begs the question:
If the author has so much recent data to rely on… why does he resort to stories about old tribes of men, living in some abstract flintstone era?
The answer is simple: It gives him the freedom to spew as much bullshit as he wants.
No, that doesn’t mean everything he writes is incorrect. Part of the ideas he proposes align reality, but the main ideas he promotes are false and the way he reaches those conclusions stem from a disingenuous origin.
Because the truth is that Jack Donovan neither (a) knows history or (b) evolutionary psychology.
He’s just a writer.
And it doesn’t stop there.
Even if he were a historian or evolutionary psychologist, his hypotheses are still complete drivel. For a hypothesis to be proven true, it must be observed as it plays out. Otherwise it’s just a guess.
So if Jack tells you that men believe in X because the Hoogga Boogga tribe did so 200 000 years ago… you better not listen.
There is no one alive who witnessed it play out, and the evidence which proves such a specific caveman behavior is nonexistent. All Jack does is project his own beliefs, his own views, and ideas onto something which no one knows much about
He does just what the Flintstones did. Project the ideas of cars, televisions and pets onto cavemen.
What he talks about is just the reality he wants to be.
He wastes your time on these bogus caveman and monkey stories that could just as well been made up by an 8-year old who’s watched a bit too much Animal Planet.
The Gay Agenda
In previous articles, I’ve outlined the inception of what’s now modern sexuality. I’ve profiled Alfred Kinsey, the “researcher” who faked data, wrangled statistics and hired pedophiles to promote homosexuality.
Kinsey is the cause for why homosexuality is pushed everywhere today.
One grand reason for why Kinsey promoted homosexuality so much was because he was a homosexual himself.
It stands to reason that a homosexual man, who likely exhibits the testosterone-driven sex drive of a straight man, wants to maximize the pool of men he can entertain himself with. Of course, a homosexual like Kinsey would create bogus research to prove that half of the men are gay and there’s nothing wrong with sodomy, child rape, and bestiality.
In short, gay Kinsey told straight men how they should be. He took upon himself the role of mentor… of “daddy”.
And guess what:
Jack Donovan is also homosexual. I don’t consider him to be near the negative level of Alfred Kinsey. But the fact that Donovan also tells straight men how they should be and act is alarming.
In fact, it appears as if Donovan has some sexual fascination with masculine men. He seems to get turned on by the fantasy of men dressing like Fred Flintstone, turning their backs to women and joining each other in tightly knit male “gangs” so they can be very manly toward each other.
That’s the most disturbing aspect of this book:
A homosexual man who fetishizes his own fantasy about masculinity, tells you how to be a man. It’s a guide for you to become like one of his romanticized fantasy gay lovers.
This book is just another form of subversion against the straight, masculine male. It’s a sneaky move.
Once you learn that the author is gay, and you read the book again, it will be clear as day. He tells you to watch society crumble, resort to tribalism and join a “male gang”.
It’s just like a gay man telling you to forget about your wife, travel with him to another city and spend the night in bed with him and his tribe members.
“Forget about your love, your family and join us instead! Look, how courageous and masculine we are!”
“The Way Of Men” by Jack Donovan is a horrible read. I could barely finish it and had to take a long break before mustering all my strength and getting through all his nonsense.
Not only are the evolutionary psychology and history segments mostly fantasies or misinterpretations from shallow Google searches, but he also uses it as a rhetorical tool to convince you of something which has no basis in reality.
He tries to cover his ignorance with fancy, “just-so” tales of cavement, disgusing it with evolutionary psychology and flawed history. It’s dishonest and, at best, delusional. At worst, evil, an attempt of corrupting your mind.
The latter appears more probably once you realize Jack Donovan is a gay man fetishizing masculinity.
I don’t recommend it. Save your time.
And until next time,
