The Blog

I used to believe that I lived in a decent and just society. A society that my family has served in uniform for three generations on my father’s side, and two on my mother’s side.

Now I know better.

Despite never having harmed my kids, I was ordered by a judge to move out of my own home and to not  have contact with my three children for nearly nine months. Her order was made without trial and was completely against the law.

I’ve learned a lot about myself and what our society is truly like over the past five years. As a result, I’ve started this blog to:

– Share my ongoing experiences, including what worked and what didn’t;

– Help children and parents in similar circumstances;

– Provide a forum for the thoughts, opinions, and experiences of others; and

– Expose controversial topics and events.

In tandem with this blog, I am writing a book to expose the fundamentally corrupt family “justice” system. The resulting controversy will hopefully provoke positive change. The Mirror, Book One – Welcome to the Evil Sisterhood should be out early in 2014, and it won’t go unnoticed for long.

No kids should ever have to go through what mine did. Ditto for parents.

    I am so pleased to have found your blog, though saddened to hear of the experiences that led to your creation of it. Thank you for providing a rational, intellectual voice in the manosphere community. It is such a relief to read such a well written blog that doesn’t assume all men are great, all women are evil, and transgenders aren’t traitors to their sexes.

    You now have a new follower.
    Perhaps I’ll see you on my own blog in the future, since I also try to provide a safe space for sex/gender discourse.

      Tarnished,

      Transgenders are people who need love, just like everyone else. You’ll not lack for this here. Thank you for your kind words, and yes, I’ll be visiting your place.

      While feminism is not about equality and rights, there are so many truly beautiful women in this world. This has nothing to do with looks. And as for what is wrong with humanity, I’d suggest that it is on the order of a 50-50 split between men and women.

      Cheers.

        That is wonderful news! While I have Gender Dysphoria and truly feel as though I should have been a male in this life, my body type is such that I’d never be mistaken for a man (or at least not without a lot of work!) As such, I come off as a hardcore tomboy, which has it’s own set of problems.

        I agree that modern feminism is not about women’s equality anymore. I read too many blogs/sites written by feminists that are just as bad as some of the MRA ones they condemn…for whatever reason, they just don’t see it. I’m also in complete agreement about what is wrong with humanity; no single sex can be held accountable for the troubles that plague us. We are all to blame or praise equally.

    I simply must learn more of gender dysphoria so that I can converse intelligently with you on the subject. I do know from Gray’s book “Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus” that 10% of each biological gender (i.e., sex) socialize as per the other gender. Is gender dysphoria like this on steroids, or is there more to it?

    I guess I am off to wikipedia shortly!

    Ideological feminists don’t see their hypocrisy due to their suffering from a form of gender narcissism. I touch upon this in my upcoming book but will really dig into it in my sequel.

    Surely no-one takes this sort of arrant nonsense seriously? Let these 4 oddballs sit in a room and shriek at one another if they want to: they might as well argue about whether people with brown hair are obsolete; or twelve year olds, or people with large noses. All just silly.

    Of course, it’s only in relatively recent history that women have had the vote; and that only as a result of real struggle by those who might teasonably be called feminists. So if your (or OM’s) “hypothetical” debating topic were to raise a few hackles, perhaps that’s not surprising? Of course, I imagine that’s precisely what he set out to do. (I respectfully submit that how that man has apparently stayed married has to rank as one of the gteatest mysteries of our age…)

      Oh, it’s great hearing from you again. Thanks for dropping by.

  4. navigator1965 November 15, 2013 at 7:30 pm #

    Probably the same way he got 27,000 followers in one year!

    Yes, in the grand scheme of things, the debate will hardly change the course of human history.

    No worries.

    “I used to believe that I lived in a decent and just society.” Which means you’ve gone through the Dark Night of the Soul and come out the other side and are therefore stronger. I salute your courage and your convictions.

    Though I don’t have the same experiences, my battle was primarily a psycho-spiritual one as I woke up to the reality that society was merely masquerading as “just and decent” while pretty much infected with a potent mix of pathologies. It is lonely path to see reality as it really is but necessary if we are to have any hope of ameliorating these toxic effects – which is pretty much what you wrote on my blog I believe.

    Congratulations in coming through such challenges. I look forward to your future posts and will read up, over time on your past ones.

    I wish you well.

    • navigator1965 February 3, 2014 at 10:05 pm #

      Thank you for those supportive and understanding words, M.K.

      My take is that you have come to see through what the late Christopher Lasch wrote about in his modern classic of social criticism The Culture of Narcissism. I intend to explain this in everyday language in the sequel to my current book.

      Which, by the way, is yours for the reading if you’ve the inclination and time (1st galley .pdf). No worries if not. themirrorbooks@gmail.com — been getting great test reader review feedback, gripping read.

  7. M.K. Styllinski February 4, 2014 at 6:46 am #

    I’ll be very pleased to read it.

    Christopher Lasch is a valuable contribution to the understanding of narcissism from a more Freudian perspective but I’m influenced more by the work of Andrew Łobaczewski and his science of ponerology. http://www.ponerology.com/ which is in another class.

    btw, I’ll be posting on subjects which I think might be of interest to you towards mid February.

    M.K.

      Not familiar with A.L.’s work. Will check it out later this week – appreciate the tip. Very much looking forward to your future posts. Thank you for the heads up.

    I too was a hapless young victim of the Family Justice “System”, so I can empathize.

    • navigator1965 May 16, 2014 at 7:20 pm #

      I didn’t see an “About” at your blog. How bad was it?

      • athenenoelle May 16, 2014 at 7:29 pm #

        I’m super new to this, so I wrote something somewhere, but it is not on my blog. It’s somewhere out there in the ether, I suppose. My writing pretty much says it all. I’m a nutter.

        • navigator1965 May 16, 2014 at 7:36 pm #

          But a nice one, with a surprising degree of self-awareness. };-).>

          (Like my mole?)

  9. athenenoelle May 16, 2014 at 7:26 pm #

    There’s no “about” on my blog? Hmmm. I thought I did that. Oh well! It’s all nonsense anyway.
    It was super bad, as in me and my brother were brought into the judges chambers, bad. Mommy didn’t want us seeing daddy, so she coached us what to say to Judge What’s-His-Face.

    • navigator1965 May 16, 2014 at 7:33 pm #

      Oh, you’re so the right reader for the book. A few test readers have reported near epiphanies while reading it.

      I’d almost guarantee you’ll be another. Get prepared for a roller coaster ride of emotions. ❤

      • athenenoelle May 16, 2014 at 8:05 pm #

        Strapping myself in right now.
        Honestly, I’ve entered an essay contest, for which I have to reread a very LONG book, so I probably won’t get to it right away. However, I look forward to it!

        • navigator1965 May 16, 2014 at 8:09 pm #

          No rush, take all the time in the world. I think it will give you a great deal to think about, so best to have a bit of an empty plate before starting.

  10. athenenoelle May 16, 2014 at 7:31 pm #

    I don’t even know where to go to write an “about”! How sad is that?

    • navigator1965 May 16, 2014 at 7:34 pm #

      I’m kind of tech dumb, myself. Don’t look particularly good in spandex, either, so it’s a good thing I’ve got a book.

  11. athenenoelle2014 May 16, 2014 at 7:36 pm #

    It’s alright. Spandex is so 80’s anyway. I’m not tech dumb, per se. I just don’t care!

    • navigator1965 May 16, 2014 at 7:36 pm #

      Ah, then. That’s a completely different case.

  12. athenenoelle2014 May 16, 2014 at 7:38 pm #

    Your mole? Isn’t that Mexican chocolate sauce? Molé?

    • navigator1965 May 16, 2014 at 8:07 pm #

      That made me laugh. I mean, lol.

      • athenenoelle May 16, 2014 at 8:12 pm #

        Yay! Success!!

        • navigator1965 May 16, 2014 at 8:16 pm #

          }:_)> (I think I just had a stroke.)

        • athenenoelle May 16, 2014 at 8:16 pm #

          Oh no…that’s not good at all. 😦

  13. athenenoelle May 16, 2014 at 8:11 pm #

    I will chew up the book I’m reading now and the ideas for my essay as quickly as possible without getting a stomach ache. 😉
    So much to read, so little time. It would help if I didn’t have my head buried in this blog all afternoon! Lol!

    • navigator1965 May 16, 2014 at 8:17 pm #

      I have the same problem. I think we would be wise to attribute this to genius, if only for our own egos.

      • athenenoelle May 16, 2014 at 8:23 pm #

        See my piece, “WordPress Love” and the comments, if you have 10 seconds. It’s next to nothing, but it’s funny. Well, I found it funny!

        • navigator1965 May 16, 2014 at 8:41 pm #

          Found it. It appears as if my previous comment was prescient, athenenoelleeinstein.

        • athenenoelle May 16, 2014 at 8:44 pm #

          “She reads… in her simian position.”
          Thank you, Oh Prescient One! 😉

        • navigator1965 May 16, 2014 at 9:05 pm #

          I’m going to have to start that 2nd career as the Oracle of Ottawa.

  14. athenenoelle May 16, 2014 at 11:46 pm #

    That sounds like a plan!
