This last week has been hectic at work, what with the holidays and all coming up. I still made time to do something that I wanted to do and I have zero regrets in doing it.
2019 is going to be the year where I will travel around the country as much as time and money will allow, to meet as many of the Men that I’ve met online. I decided to start a little early though, and so I sent out a request to my followers on my e-mail list.
I told my e-mail list that I was wondering if any of them would like to talk to me. Bare minimum, I could wish them a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. If they were interested, all they needed to do was reply to my e-mail with a phone number and a time that would work for them for me to call.
I’m glad I did that. I got a far greater response than I had hoped for and a less greater response than I feared.
What I found out when I called those who were willing to have that phone call was like minded Men. Sure the age ranges varied, as did many of their life circumstances, but overall these Men have experienced similar things and had similar views that I hold.
I’m glad that I took the chance on them and that they took the chance on me. Zero regrets.
In this day and age of censorship and being de-platformed, it’s only a matter of time before Men get silenced from a keystroke from some SJW sitting in a cubicle somewhere, simply for expressing themselves as Men. We could be “unpersoned” simply for having a different point of view from the established narrative.
Like how the War on Feminism is already over, true freedom of speech has died for all I’m concerned. If you have to watch what you say, and can count on a clock the time it will take to be silenced, true free speech is already dead.
Many Men in the ‘Sphere are setting contingency plans for their eventual banning and deplatforming. I’m working on mine as well. It’s only a matter of time before someone comes along, sees what I have written or recorded and decides to be offended and demand blood. Let them come. I’m ready. I’m waiting.
In the end, a Man is only a phone call away. Start setting up those connections and bonds now before you get silenced and that opportunity dies with your internet presence.
Offer your phone number to a Man in need. Offer it even if he doesn’t need it. Call him when you get a number. You may be surprised to find that you have more in common with him than not.
You won’t regret doing it. I sure didn’t.
I’m forging bonds as I write this that will go past the internet. I’m going to meet these Men and forge further bonds with them in person.
This is how you adapt, overcome, and survive. This is how you thrive, succeed, and excel.
Make those connections that go beyond an avatar on Twitter. Forge those bonds that go beyond words in a chatroom on YouTube.
Go beyond a picture on Instagram.
Make the offering. Make the phone call. Create bonds. Create alliances.
Find out that you are not alone and probably not the minority after all.
I hope this finds you happy, warm, and thriving.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all.
