We need to talk about the cover of the new issue of The Hollywood Reporter.
The cast of HBO’s “Silicon Valley” stand in a line, hands in one another’s pockets, with a meek expression that says: “You don’t have to worry about me getting you pregnant, because my sperm count is so low! Not that you would sleep with me anyway, because my handshake is so weak it would send you running in the other direction.”
As Courtney Kirchoff notes, there’s not a whole lot of praise for limp-wristed folk outside of the image subtitles. Zach Woods, who plays Jared, says this: “There’s a tender quality to these guys. I’m among my tribe of, like, beta males.”
While the story itself is mostly a meandering interview about the HBO comedy, the fact that a major national publication is printing a story on its cover declaring “The Triumph of the Beta Male” says a lot about how bad things have gotten for men in America. And it’s not just THR that’s declaring regular men as being irrelevant. On Sunday, Jimmy Kimmel declared from the stage at Dolby Theatre at the 90th annual Academy Awards in his opening monologue that the best kind of a man is one without a penis, because he definitely will not rape anyone! While I understand what Kimmel is trying to say, his remark implies that men, who by definition posses a penis, are inherently rapists or sexual predators. That masculinity is toxic, and that men are sex abusers.
Meanwhile, there’s something deeply troubling going on Western countries when it comes to our men. Men account for 77 percent of the nation’s suicides, they more than twice as likely to become alcoholics, they are more likely to die of an overdose than women, and 90 percent of inmates are men. These are just a few of the facts Fox News’s Tucker Carlson referenced on Wednesday night in the first of a new weekly series “Men in America.” You can watch Tucker’s interview with Dr. Jordan Peterson, a college professor who has made for himself by rejecting dogmas of the left, in the clip below.
To the surprise of no one, Carlson got DRAGGED by the usual suspects.

#SoBrave. Because there’s nothing women like more than self-aggrandizing male feminists whose feminism starts and stops at virtue signaling on the Internet.
Winston Churchill predicted this crisis nearly 100 years ago in his essay “Mass Effects on Modern Life” which I just so happened to have read today for another piece I was writing. In his essay, published in 1925, the great statesman notes that there is no longer room for great men, for heroes, for victors in modern society. What will happen to us when our heroes are no longer titans, but movie stars? He wrote:
The thing that makes a nation great is that it has people that are aggressive and bold. The United States has had these in abundance (men and women) and became the greatest and most powerful nation on earth. The US is undefeatable unless that spirit and capacity can be weakened or eliminated.
