    But don't dress up like Kaal Drogo and howl in the woods with your mates and then tell us that's the essence of masculinity.
    LOL

    I do think an awful lot of this stuff is about nerdy men who are scared of women and therefore resent them.

    This Andrew O'Hagen piece about mass killers in the US addresses this issue: http://www.lrb.co.uk/v37/n20/andrew-...le-now-bitches

    And here's my old mucker Martin Amis, also in the LRB, writing on Robert Bly's masculinity-crisis tome 'Iron John': http://www.lrb.co.uk/v13/n23/martin-...rn-of-the-male

    I'm friends with Kristen Alvanson (artist/Mrs Reza) on Facebook. Just seen a photo she's posted of a bunch of people sitting on the floor in an apartment surrounded by big scribbled-on squares of card. The caption is

    Party at my and reza's place for nick land a couple weeks ago. Talking about the diagrams each person made of how their mind works. That was fun, thanks [------] for the photo.
    Kind of disappointed one of them isn't a big amphetamine molecule or an Adderall capsule.

    surprise surprise, jack donovan has reviewed this book too. Verdict: quite good in places but needs more balls

    http://www.jack-donovan.com/axis/201...ing-iron-john/

    a word of warning. this article contains the following words and phrases; 'men’s movement”, 'mancession', 'katabasis for men', 'inner warrior', 'male initiation', 'woundology', 'authentic, organic masculine experience' and 'a wounded male soul'.

    "I am not much for the term 'alt-right" because it implies that neo-Nazis somehow become new, different, interesting and edgy when they get a Twitter account and express their support for Donald Trump,"
