FYI, while I love his work and have interviewed him a few times, Dr. Henry Makow is one of those unique people like myself where one ought to do the obligatory "I don't agree with everything he says, but..." as if there is anyone on earth who agrees with everything anyone else says. I don't even believe they exist. Yet.
Before we all learn to think, talk and act the same and bore and annoy the hell out of each other, I strongly suggest you look at these articles and more to figure out better ways for people to uniquely complement each other, especially men and women. This may sound old fashioned, but it also worked for thousands of years.
Just like with anything or anyone else that you find on or off the internet, you have to use your own brain to make sense of things for you and figure out what the truth is. People will sometimes say that you can't trust something when it's on the internet, but I find that the opposite is often true, or people feel more comfortable telling the truth on the internet than they do in real life. Perhaps this is because there's more anonymity and less pressure to conform to norms with what you say to avoid you or others feeling uncomfortable too often.
Of course, the obligatory "you can't just believe everything you read on the internet" is obvious and it may even be worth stating on occasion. But, you can't just stop there and dismiss everything that anybody finds online because you also can't believe everything that anyone says offline either, especially when you often have to lie to your family and friends and tell the truth to strangers for people to trust you, or when you have things like crooked salespeople, repairmen and mechanics among others as legendary pop-culture targets.
From my perspective, I choose to define "truth" as logic supported by evidence we can all see, relate to and understand, including on and offline. That's why talking about the "weather" is an obvious and easy thing for everyone to do: we can all see it and relate to it in front of us so there's no chance of arguing about it and you can mention it to anyone anywhere. They'll feel relaxed and relieved, if not impressed. This is similar to our communication problems, with the big difference being that we're having trouble communicating about them.
The bottom line is with a toxic culture that most people will admit is dehumanizing us and dumbing us down, communication problems and deteriorating relationships that are masked by a "keep it happy" culture and all the fun to be had and to say we're having in spite of the problems we try to hide, we still need to find better answers individually to affect how we live collectively. While it's hard to tackle things head on, we can still tackle them on subtle levels, including working with our current cultural fascination with allegories, entendres and more. People can simply get more creative than devolving into just wisely scratching and wiping to talk.
Adults in particular need try and be more informed than they often say and use their superior knowledge and understanding to help others by incrementally changing the culture with how they respond. As long as your answers help people relax you shouldn't have any problems, so just make sure you tailor them accordingly.
People will want to know what your secret is if you can carry yourself in ways that set you above the fray without looking down on anyone in any way, so give it a shot. It's hard to do, but when you do, it feels great.
Once people respect you for your opinions, or your synthesized understanding of the world based on your knowledge and experiences as more educated, informed and helpful than most, then you will feel valuable.

Apology to a Young Woman for Noticing Her
April 13, 2013
Pretty young women are a blessing
from nature, like flowers in Spring.
Don't begrudge older men for appreciating this gift.
by Henry Makow Ph.D.
It seems I owe you an apology. I passed you on a sidewalk.
I was going east. You were going west. I looked at you as you went by.
My only excuse is that you were in my direct line of vision.
You reminded me of Keira Knightley. You're attractive. But you know that.
Next time I see an attractive female a third my age, I'll avert my eyes. Is that proper etiquette?
Would you prefer older men ignored you? Of course you would.
HOW DID I OFFEND YOU?
It's OK to be a Woman!

"Feminism has destroyed the things you most want, namely love, courtship and marriage."
This is a staple I post every April. Spring came late this year.
"You have been betrayed by society which has gone over to the dark side. Feminism, a lesbian and occult ideology which denies gender differences, is poison for women."
By Henry Makow Ph.D.
(from April 1, 2008)
"In Spring, a young man's thoughts turn to love" and so do a young woman's.
Like pretty daffodils poking their heads above matted leaves, attractive young women are suddenly in evidence on neighborhood streets. They are usually alone and strike me as confused. They want male approval but are told men are evil. Their instincts say, get married and have children but society tells them families are oppressive: "Get a career instead."
If I could talk to these young women, I would say this:
You have been betrayed by society which has gone over to the dark side. Feminism, a lesbian and occult ideology which denies gender differences, is poison for women. It has destroyed the things you most want and need, namely love, courtship and marriage.
Young men no longer think in terms of winning your friendship and love. They no longer need to marry or even commit to get sex. If you don't go to bed, another girl will. No more dates. No more flowers, dinners, dances and movies.
It's booze, bed and "Good Bye."
"Women's rights" indeed.
God & Creation = Man & Woman

"And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters." -- Genesis 1-2

Why "Hell has no Wrath like a Woman Scorned"
(From Aug. 21, 2001)
Every young girl has a fantasy of being swept off her feet by Prince Charming and living "happily ever after." The reason for this confident expectation is that it mirrors the Love of God. Now imagine if Charming Prince had sex with the young girl and crudely left her. Her whole being would revolt.
In his book, Feminism and Freedom (1987), philosopher Michael Levin links feminist anger to the sexual revolution. "Torn between the new rules of sexual compliance and her age-old impulse to hold back, angry at the men she felt duty-bound to sleep with, the contemporary woman responded to the hatred of men and the talk of victimhood in the feminist message (304)."
As Levin suggests, modern feminism may be fueled by a visceral reaction to the sexual revolution. In the liberated 1960's, New Left ladies slept with their boyfriends without establishing loving relationships. When they were dumped, they felt like they had been mugged. They began to refer to sex as "rape." [This may explain the feminist insistence that their subjective reactions are objectively valid.] They vented their wrath by turning their blistering Marxist analysis on men. They decided that masculinity ("the patriarchy" i.e. all evil) needs to be eliminated by making society gender-less.
Women would become like men and vice-versa.
In feminine discontent, Marxism has found a constituency more potent than labor ever was. By pretending to represent all women, feminism has become the official ideology in government, education and the media. Now, we are literally paying the price for the sexual revolution. With our taxpayer dollars, feminists are destroying masculinity, femininity and the family. Males and females no longer know who they are, what they want nor how to relate.
Bob Marley & The Wailers - No Woman, No Cry (Live)
FYI, since this song didn't work, or it did but not enough, this "Mission Impossible For (?): Ghost Protocol" project to help somebody like myself tackle this head on which will help others tackle it is still an option. If it even happened. Which is entirely up to people since it's up to them what they want to believe in these days.
Still, as long as we have options then we can think about them. Otherwise we don't have anything else to compare anything to and think about. My role and my goal is to make sure that our culture respects all our options enough to preserve them so that we get along better. I can make it happen as long as I can get help.
