Chris Gethard, who hosts a comedy show in New York, recently released a video that offers both banal and terrible advice to men. His banal advice is that men shouldn’t hate women. Try not to slice yourself on that edge there, Chris. He also gives some terrible advice. (UPDATE: Here is my video response to Chris Gethard’s men’s rights video.)
Ordinarily I do not concern myself with pop culture, but his video contains unconscious messages to men. I’m not saying he’s part of the Illuminati or anything kooky like that, but he’s clearly bought into the slave morality that men are told to live under.
His terrible advice is rather common. It’s what you men have heard all of your lives. You can watch the video, but I’ll save you the two minutes of your life.
Conform. Obey. Submit. Settle.
The message of Chris Gethard’s video is that although life may be tough for you now, if you live like a slave then everything will be OK.
In the video he observes that as a man,”You just want to have an HDTV and a lady who thinks you’re reasonably cool. One day you’ll be 37 and have a mortgage and be totally OK with that.” The only thing missing from his cliched understanding of masculinity is that we should crack open some brewskis.
I’m almost 37 and I don’t have a mortgage, as home ownership is a scam. My TV is a piece of junk that someone gave me. (I would never buy a television.) As for women…I’ve done better than Chris Gethard.
I would never settle for the life of a “good little boy” who does what he is told.
Chris Gethard and other mainstream personalities preach a message of consumerism and debt slavery.
Is that really all you want out of life? A chick who will settle for you? A television? Really…Is that all there is to life?
According to Chris Gethard, yes.
This video seems smug and banal, but it embeds slave messages. These slave messages are everywhere.
Obey. Conform. Submit. Settle.
Watch this video to remind yourself why you should never watch TV.
Be sure to work on your body language after watching this demoralizing filth.
Incidentally, I don’t know very many men who hate women. I ban the woman haters from Danger & Play, but that has only happened twice.
Quite a few men dislike Lindsey West, an unhealthy cow who spreads messages of self-indulgence and poor health to her unsuspecting victims.
Just as Chris would enslave men to a life of debt and mediocrity, Lindsey West wants to enslave women into a life health problems, poor mobility, and limited sexual options.
I also dislike Jezebel’s Tracie Egan Morrissey, who actively supports domestic violence against men.
I don’t hate women. I just don’t need women to give a sense of self-worth. See the difference?
