    This is pure anti-men by feminists. Feminists want innocent men to apologize for their “wrongdoings” and feminists never apologize for their wrongdoings. Feminists want to be first in everything. Their feelings to be considered first instead of their husbands’ feelings. They think they are more important than men which is untrue. Feminists think they are better or do better than men. The point is men are head of the house and wives are to be submissive. I did not even hear Devon on dr.Oz stating to put God first. He said to put women’s needs before men’s needs. Feminists only care about themselves and use men to get what they want or need by controlling them. I love alpha men, they are nice and loyal and will not let feminists control or walk all over them. I would be glad to be housewife and loving my husband and doing anything for him and put him above everything else except God...

    Speaking on the pornography issue, if it’s spoken about from the angle of sex trafficking, maybe people will understand how destructive that industry is. Most of the girls who appear in those movies are doing it against their will, they are slaves to their masters, and often use drug and alcohol to numb their pain. When people keep searching for and watching porn, they are creating a demand for the movies, hence helping in the process of scouting young women for this industry. It is not just about our insatiable thirst for lust, it is about the lives of innocent people, who don’t know what they are getting themselves into. Most of them end up taking their own lives, the industry is abusive. Say no to pornography. You could save a life.

    "Sometimes the only thing a man will understand is pain....A man who's really in touch with the Master in himself, when the woman steps away, its a catalyst for change."
    I'm going through this right now! My girl of 5 years (on & off) wants nothing but space and time (w/ no deadline in sight) and its killing me! We've never gone w/o speaking, so this is torture. I've literally begged for her to start fresh but she needs to see a change in behavior, over time. That immediately sparked the need for change and the process of doing the work. I need to be a better man, and it took her cutting me off to take it serious. The scariest part is not knowing whether she'll fall out of love with me, start dating and fall for someone else, or just not want me back at all. She can be pretty cold when she's over something. We never had a cheating issue, more so not being vulnerable, verbal abuse, and treating her as if she wasn't good enough. Just trusting and believing that God will show her my efforts and restore her faith in me being the man she can trust to grow old with. I'm all the way committed to this hit CTG at 37 and it's hitting me at 33. it's time! These are definitely hard times though man smh

    That’s why men shouldn’t get married young, you are setting yourself up for some serious failure & instead of writing a book for women & teaching them how to deal with men. Write a book for men on how to master ourselves

    Here we go once again with yet another attack on masculinity. I don’t condone sexual harassment however, The men out there that are raping women are a very small percentage of the male population which should be dealt with accordingly. I do gotta say that It’s so ironic how you as the author of the book is telling other men that they need to man up when you don’t have any balls yourself. Why don’t you cut out your politically correct bullshit and tell the truth like it is because lets be honest that same masculinity it’s what makes a woman crave a man. Women are turned on by that same masculinity who can provide and keep things in order. It makes them feel protected. Women are turned on by the aggressiveness of a man who has the confidence and courage to approach her and ask her for her number. Manginas like you and these fucking feminist bitches in this country have spent many decades emasculating men, shaming men for being men and trying to restructure manhood that when is finally time for that man to be a man and he can’t do it, now he’s weak. You see alot of these women love the idea of an effeminate emotional man or a “trained dog” in a relationship so that he is weak therfore they can gain control but God forbid some thug is breaking inside the house, only then women will want a vicious bad boy to awaken that animal inside of him to go take care of that thug. And that’s the problem. Alot of females want their cake and eat it too. They want men to be men only when it’s convenient for them. I pray to God that we never encounter a WW3 , a catastrophic event or some economic crisis where money don’t matter anymore, no more government assistance, no more food in the super markets. Only then you bitches will want men to be more masculine, aggressive and strong to battle the enemy, restructure buildings, roads, bridges, fix buses and fix airplanes. We will have to hunt, to fish, to kill to protect our women and children. We will have to build homes for shelter, and start fires from scratch to keep them warm in the winter, fight tooth and nail with anyone who tries to invade the territory. That will be the day that men will have to be MEN. And only the strong will survive. I’m not against you trying to empower or please women with your narrative but just don’t bash one gender to appease the other

May we raise children- especially boys- who won't have to recover from their past. Amen.

    Much respect to Charlemagne for getting to the point where he can admit that he doesn’t know who he is anymore. After you strip away all of the false ideas of who you thought you were, that’s where you’ll end up. It may be uncomfortable at first, but embrace it, and you will find a place of peace like never experienced before. Having a clean slate of identity will allow you to truly be moved solely by the spirit of the world, rather than ego. 🙏🏾

    If he does not step up, step away 🔥🔥🔥 He’s operating from the pain of the woman he loved that he loss. It’s so deeply painful to realize this truth. As deep as the heart ❤️ would hurt to walk away, sometimes the love she has for him is so deep and real, she knows that his healing is best in his life at the present moment. That requires maturity to understand where he is & how much he actually have to give and how she should move going through the mess with him, or just step away for a season or two. Love, respect, consideration, effort, etc. should be reciprocated.

    "To say that a man is heterosexual implies only that he maintains sexual intercourse exclusively with the opposite sex, i.e. women. Everything or almost everything that is of love, most straight men reserve exclusively for other men. The people they admire; they respect; they worship and worship; they honor; whom they imitate, worship and with whom they create deeper ties; to whom they are willing to teach and with whom they are willing to learn; those whose respect, admiration, recognition, honor , reverence and love they wish: these are, mostly overwhelming, other men. In their relations with women, what is seen as respect is kindness, generosity or paternalism; what is seen as honor is the placement of the woman in a dome. Of women they want devotion, servitude and sex. Male heterosexual culture is couples; she cultivates love for men.” - Marilyn Frye

  • Psalm 144:1 Maccabees

    Galatians 5:19-21
    19 When you follow the desires of your sinful nature, the results are very clear: sexual immorality, impurity, lustful pleasures, 20 idolatry, sorcery, hostility, quarreling, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambition, dissension, division, 21 envy, drunkenness, wild parties, and other sins like these. Let me tell you again, as I have before, that anyone living that sort of life will not inherit the Kingdom of God.

    Forgive me but all my life I seen the dogs have nothing but success. Women say one thing but chase after something totally different. I think our society has reached a point of no return. Our “ leader “ MR Trump with all his failings still became president. Personally I think women ( especially black women ) need time to mature before they know how to recognize a “ real” man. Because if you got money or the gift of gab these are the ones who usually have the greatest success with the women. Other communities train their women differently and have somewhat different outcomes. No disrespect but look at Meagan Good it took her a while to appreciate someone like this. And this to me seems to be the norm in our community. If I’m wrong I would love someone to correct me please.
