Today, let’s talk about two very important things that you need to understand about masculism if you want to take masculism down. These two things are called masculist triumphalism and masculist subjectivism. They are closely related mental operations, and together they form a set of brackets or bookends which hold the entire masculist psychology together.
Masculist triumphalism is the idea that masculism is absolute, categorically and objectively “right” beyond all further discussion, for all time. Hence, masculism is triumphant and trumps any possible alternative standpoint. Masculist triumphalism is the moral bedrock from which all masculist thinking operates because the masculists are adamant that masculism has achieved an objective moral victory absolved from all further discussion. They will suggest that if you oppose masculism in any way, you are on the wrong side of history. Masculist triumphalism is their dogma, their fixed idea and the pivot point which their moral universe revolves around.
In their mind, you are morally bound to agree that masculism is RIGHT! It just IS. Masculism is right because it’s right and that settles it. And because masculism is right you must support it, and if you don’t, you are WRONG. You just ARE! Not just intellectually wrong, but morally and metaphysically wrong through every last fiber of your being. In other words, you are a wrong person altogether, on every imaginable level, and I don’t think wrongness gets more wrong than that!
So what’s the trick? How do they get to this state of mind and more to the point, how do they stay there? Why is it virtually impossible to dislodge them from their way of thinking?
The trick is that masculism controls the language, and this control starts by controlling the word “masculism” itself; just the word. In other words, masculism is what they say it is because the WORD masculism means what THEY say it means and not what YOU say it means; according to them.
Masculist subjectivism is the masculist notion that non-masculist people don’t know what masculism really is. Masculist subjectivism assumes that masculism has one correct universal definition, that masculists have an exclusive right to formulate that definition and that a masculist frame of reference is assumed within any conversational setting. In the end, masculist subjectivism fails to consider that non-masculist reasons for rejecting masculism might compose some portion of the truth about masculism.
We’ve all seen masculist subjectivism in action. Every time a masculist quotes the dictionary definition of masculism for your benefit . . . There it is!
Beyond that, masculist subjectivism is the default state of mind for any masculist at any time. For a masculist, all people, ideas and situations are processed and evaluated through the lens of masculist understanding and this understanding grows from the unquestioned assumption that the word “masculism” has a meaning which only a masculist may authoritatively pronounce.
A masculist will set the value of the word “masculism” at X, with X being something irreproachable, something that will brook no moral opposition, in other words, something morally triumphant.
And that brings us back to masculist triumphalism again:
In the end, the whole charade runs like this: Masculism is X, X is irreproachable, therefore, masculism is irreproachable, therefore masculism is eternally right, therefore masculism is triumphant, therefore you are eternally wrong if you oppose masculism, and if you don’t believe that return to “masculism is X” and start the game over.
Masculist triumphalism and masculist subjectivism are like the chicken and the egg; it is pointless to wonder which comes first.
Masculist triumphalism and masculist subjectivism:
Masculist subjectivism is the mental filter through which masculist triumphalism controls the language and reconstructs reality. In the end, masculism operates as the self-appointed gatekeeper of moral truth.
However, what nearly every masculist fails to understand is that non-masculist people view masculism in a very different light than masculist people do. Non-masculist people either does not agree that “masculism is X” or else insist on deconstructing the entire formulation as such because they find something radically problematic about it.
There you have it. By taking control of what the word “masculism” means, we can drive a wedge between masculist triumphalism and masculist subjectivism. Hence, we can regain control of the language, ownership of our thoughts and feelings and ultimately mastery of our lives. We can also commence disestablishing the masculist worldview and dismantling the entire power structure built upon that worldview one step at a time.
Finally, we establish non-masculist as a broad political identity, through our revolutionary act of reclaiming the language. Controlling the definition of “masculism” is our necessary first move in reclaiming the language, with thousands of moves to follow. In this manner, we build non-masculist identity step by step.
Masculism IS what we say it is:
We say it, and we will make it stick. Let no masculist tell us that we “can’t do that” since we have clearly done it already. Furthermore, we are curious to know how they intend to stop us.
Masculist triumphalism and masculist subjectivism are two key terms that you will find useful, and you would do well to make them a part of your lexicon.
