China’s War Against “Fresh Little Meat”

To be honest with you, one of the silver linings about all the catastrophes that have befallen us since COVID, is the implosion of many of the liberal pieties that we have been laboring under for decades.

That’s good because one cannot live in a rational manner while believing things that are not true.  That goes for nations as well as individuals.  Eventually, the mind will snap.

G K Chesterton called them “smelly little orthodoxies”.  And one of the biggest (and most foul-smelling) of these pseudo-pieties has been the idea that men and women are interchangeable.  

Notice I did not say “feminism”; because it’s not feminism per se that brought us to the present state of insanity that has gripped the Western world.  It is but one side of the coin, the other being the loss of masculinity.  Personally, I don’t know which came first, you know, the classic chicken-or-egg conundrum.  (We men have abrogated our patriarchal role; way back in the 50s if I had to put a date on it, that was thanks to the advent of the Playboy philosophy.)  In any event, it doesn’t matter at this point, that’s how far gone we are.

What does concern me is that this lie has been laid bare in many different ways.  

Consider the modern welfare state.  The only reason “matriarchies” can exist in the lower economic quintiles is because men higher up the economic ladder pay for welfare out of their taxes.  In reality, this means, that there are no viable matriarchies.  In other words, they are unsustainable on their own terms because without the redistribution of wealth they could not exist.  Regardless, the dysgenic effect on our culture is easy to see.  

Then there is the problem of the normal social interchange between the sexes in the workplace or the college classroom, which has for all intents and purposes, been criminalized.  As if that’s not bad enough, our armed forces are crippled by idiotic standards which mock military valor.  No one dares ask how this will affect unit cohesion, which means that the homosexualists and feminists have won.  For now.

And then there’s the problem of “gender-fluidity” or sexual confusion.  Things like the 38 genders –that’s nonsense and everybody know it (instinctually at least).  I’m also talking about the normal 1:1 ratio that normally exists between the sexes.  This has become artificially skewed, leading to the so-called 80:20 phenomenon, in which the top 20 percent of eligible males have access to 80 percent of the most desirable females. 

In other words, the ratio between men and women (for all practical purposes) is now 1:4.  This may be a reason for the popularity of conversion to Islam among some young men in the West.  In Muslim cultures, the top tier of males can have four wives at a time.  This deprives three males from acquiring a wife in the first place.  While this deprives lower-ranking males from sexual access to women, in Islam at least, it’s legal and an entire society is constructed around it.

This is to the detriment of both sexes.  For the bottom 80 percent of males, we see rampant porn addiction among young males; others have simply dropped out of society.  We also see the increased feminization of other men.  For the upper 80 percent of females, they feel the need to objectify themselves with unnecessary surgeries in order to get the attention of the 20 percent of desirable males who sit at the top of this hierarchy.  (This may explain the growing cohort of teenage girls who are experiencing “rapid onset of gender dysphoria”.)

And this is only the top of the iceberg.

Gail wrote about this last year when she informed us about “mouse utopia”, an elaborate experiment in which sub-optimal conditions are reached in mouse populations once a certain point is reached.  In the end-state, many of the male mice become feminized and lose all interest in sex while some of the females acquire masculine characteristics. 

This is not a problem confined to the West.  As you can see in the video above, China (and Japan and South Korea) have been hampered by the confusion between the sexes.  The great economic strides that these Asian nations have undergone have resulted in a dystopian pop culture in which overly-feminine male pop stars have become the ideal.

China for one, has recognized that this is a problem and they are taking steps to improve the situation.

Now the Chinese Communist Party only has itself to blame, since it was they who started the “one-child policy” back in 1979.  The purpose was to bring China’s massive population under control.  Unfortunately, the overwhelming number of Chinese couples preferred to have a single male child instead of a single girl.  This led to an explosion in abortions among pre-born females.  The reason for this is traditionally, it is the male child who upon maturity, will take care for his elderly parents. 

As can be expected, in the under-40 age cohort, the ratio of male to females is out of all proportion; some estimates put the number of surplus males in the 70 million range.  This is unsustainable on its own terms.  What it means culturally is particularly unpalatable:  if not actual rampant homosexuality itself, then the idealization of effeminancy as a viable alternative.  Think of it this way:  since you will never be able to marry, you might as well castigate monogamy itself.  When viewed in that light, it’s not an unreasonable psychological self-defense mechanism.  We see this in certain subsets of homosexuals in the West, who derisively call heterosexuals “breeders”.  

That being said, the Chinese have recognized the problem.  They are also undertaking efforts to reverse the glorification of the “fresh little meat”, their moniker for feminized men.  And they are doing it in ways that are uncomfortable to Western sensibilities.  (Or should I say “modern” Western sensibilities?)  They are using all organs of Chinese society to demonize effeminate men.  

Whether this will succeed is anyone’s guess.  But as anyone with common sense will tell you, you can’t solve a problem until you realize that you have a problem in the first place.  And the Chinese, whatever else their faults, do realize that they have a problem.  The sexual imbalances that exist in China cannot be rectified overnight –if ever.  But they are trying.  Unlike us in the West, they have gone past the stage of recognizing that there is a problem.  

We on the other hand, can only whisper about the problem of the sexual dysphoria and male effeminancy that has gripped our own nation at present.  Consider our armed forces:  we see no indication that they are capable of doing anything to re-instill masculine valor.  For now, the inability to do so may be all for the best; this type of reordering is only successful if it is an organic one.  Personally, given the politicization of our flag rank officers, I can’t see it happening anytime in the near future.   

One reason (perhaps the main reason) that our armed forces would fail is because masculinity cannot be resurrected while the rest of society penalizes men for merely being men.  And how are men penalized in the civilian sector?  One way is when corporations put out memos “suggesting” that straight, white men be overlooked for hiring and promotion.  Or college admission standards  which are skewed in order to comply with Title IX quotas favoring women’s athletics, even though these programs are money losers and thus bring no added value to higher education.  

I realize of course that this is an uncomfortable subject.  We are talking about people alive today and that hits on too many nerves.  (Notice for example that the narrator in the video above has to constantly couch his critique so as not to offend homosexuals.)  It may be that we are at that “soft men make bad times” cycle of history, which means that we men alive today are those “soft men”.  

In any event, it is too early to predict what China’s outcome will be.  And there are too many variables to predict whether America (and the West) can recapture their manly virtues.  But if the Spenglerian narrative is correct, that the present age is one of “soft men”, then hard times are just around the corner, whether we like it or not.  


  1. In a sense, I’m amused. Neither the Soviets nor the Chinese ever really internalized feminism any more than they internalized racial equality or economic equality, let alone LGBT. These “intersectionalities” were the weapons with which communists, in the heyday of the Cold War, attacked America.

    Who runs America? White, Anglo males. So you create as much identity group based hostility against the masters of society as possible. What are your vectors? Class, race, gender and lastly, sexual orientation. Stir it up as much as possible and you make it ungovernable or, at least, very difficult to direct and perpetually ineffective. The class angle has largely been defused by the welfare state. But all the rest are quite active and on display thirty years after the demise of the Soviet Union.

    It’s the gift that keeps on giving. It’s one of the weakest aspects of democracy.

    God’s Law is the patriarchy. That is clear enough from scripture and the church fathers. And that was once the case in America. It will be again. However, you can expect quite a lot of trauma to precede its restoration. Absence of the patriarchy is the font of the Pandora’s box of ills western civilization is experiencing. Men – fathers – aren’t in charge and acknowledged rightly as such with everyone else as subordinate by law. Instead men are hamstrung by the law. Absent the threat of legal intervention, men would naturally reassert themselves.

    It’s not at all a failure of men. Hugh Hefner had nothing on Solomon. Three hundred wives and seven hundred concubines.
    Men have always been tomcats. It’s the planned subversion of a certain repugnant class of men (and women) we call liberals. They gave us this regime. Lower and even middle class men didn’t ask for this. Hell no. Why do you think you have to pass laws to impose it? It’s unnatural. Blacks, and to a certain extent lower class whites, just ignore it and live with the consequences. Some men just behave like men and take whatever comes. Others opt out of the entire sick spectacle. Still others go the beta route.

    This is what a feminist matriarchy looks like. And it will get uglier the longer we stray. Most all societal ills stem from the abdication/abolition of the patriarchy. It is a shame that we have to rediscover the virtue of the patriarchy the hard way, but that’s what we’re in for. We’re going to see how broken it can get – how broken we can stand it – before we do the unthinkable.

    Of course the Chinese are right to come down on effeminacy. Even a broken clock . . .

    • Men have failed ever since Adam blamed a woman. Men — fathers — get to do the right thing and lead and serve even when they’re the only ones doing it and even when people and circumstances are against them. (Sorry, men.)

      Now imagine being a woman and being called to wait, and obey, and wait and wait and wait. (Sorry, women.) They lasted from the garden of Eden until the 50s with that, which is pretty impressive.

      For anyone who mourns the downfall of fatherhood, fatherhood itself compels a man to go love and serve others at the cost of your own life, even if you have to fight every step of the way. Claiming the hindrance of others or externalities is itself a rejection of fatherhood.

      • “Claiming the hindrance of others or externalities is itself a rejection of fatherhood.”

        The exact opposite of the truth. Men ruled women for centuries. The only thing that changed that has resulted in the present travesty is the law regarding domestic relations. Absent that, we would still rule for the same reason a lion rules his pride. It is biological.

  2. Anonymous II says


    Putin says teaching young children they can easily swap genders is a ‘borderline crime against humanity.’

    A growing campaign in the West to do away with gender-based language defies reason and is subverting human nature, Russian President Vladimir Putin has claimed, arguing children should not be taught biological sex does not exist.

    “The discussion about the rights of men and women has turned into a total phantasmagoria in a number of Western countries,” Putin said in a speech to dignitaries and reporters at the Valdai Discussion Club in Sochi, Russia on Thursday. “Those who risk saying that men and women still exist, and that this is a biological fact, are virtually ostracized.”

    He listed examples, such as banning words like “mother” and “father” in favor of terms like “parent one and parent two”, as well as “banning the phrase ‘breast milk’ and replacing it with ‘human milk’ so that people insecure about their own gender wouldn’t get upset.”

    “And this is not new,” the Russian president went on. “In the 1920s, Soviet culture-warriors invented a so-called ‘newspeak,’ believing that in this way they would create a new sense of consciousness and redefine people’s values.”

    “This is not to mention things that are simply monstrous,” he added, “like when children are taught from an early age that a boy can easily become a girl and vice versa. In fact, they are indoctrinating them into the alleged choices that are supposedly available to everyone – removing parents from the equation and forcing the child to make decisions that can ruin their lives.”

    In 2019, Putin insisted that Russia maintains “a very relaxed attitude towards the LGBT community,” saying, “We aren’t biased against them.” However, he added, “let’s give children an opportunity to grow up and decide afterwards who they want to be. Leave them alone.”

    The country introduced a law in 2013 banning the “promotion of non-traditional sexual values among minors” as part of a bill designed to safeguard family values. While it was criticized by a number of international human rights groups at the time, Putin said the measures were important for protecting children.

      Letting children have an age of innocence. What a novel idea?

      Have our elites in the West gotten this memo?

    • Solitary Priest says

      God Bless Putin, then. He only made one error here. Borderline is too mild a word. The sad irony is that the Islamists, whose behinds the left are always kissing, would show much less tolerance than Putin and the “big bad Russians.”

    • Putin was on a roll at Valdai. Here is a transcript. Dr. Steve Turley actually did an episode on his remarks today.

      Vladimir Vladimirovich spoke quite intelligently, even eloquently, regarding the West’s repetition on steroids of the Bolsheviks’ mistakes. The translator in the Turley video is clumsy but the transcript gives you a better account of what he said. You will notice that early on he pays some lip service to climate change, but only a sentence or two. The rest of what he says lays out a vision of sovereign nation states cooperating when necessary, voluntarily, on matters of common interest. And he is more than a little critical of the western establishment, citing eerie parallels between the woke and the Soviets.

  4. First Slowly, Then Quickly

    Dr Theodore Dalrymple:
    ‘ … In a publication aimed at dermatologists, the Dermatology Times, we read in an article devoted to the treatment of the skin in transgender patients the following:

    “Patients of reproductive potential who are not…abstinent with penis-containing partners, 2 forms of contraception are required.”

    In other words, women who would like to be men but still have their ovaries and wombs can become pregnant by sexual intercourse with fertile men, the latter now being known as “penis-containing” persons. (The venerable but increasingly lunatic medical journal The Lancet recently decided to call women “bodies with vaginas.”) …

    The article in the Dermatology Times points to a practical problem for dermatologists in their treatment of women-to-men transsexuals. These women are given masculinizing hormones that, among other side effects, result in the development of acne in up to a third of them.

    Acne is a distressing condition and when it is severe enough can provoke suicidal thoughts. Moreover, one of the best treatments for acne is isotretinoin, a well-known side effect of which is suicidal thoughts sometimes resulting in suicide, even in those not previously suicidal. As if this were not enough, the rate of depression and suicide among such gender-diverse individuals assigned female at birth is already high—according to the article itself. What is the poor dermatologist to do? The answer is simple: prescribe isotretinoin and shift the responsibility onto a psychiatrist. If the dermatologist refers the patient to a psychiatrist but the patient nevertheless commits suicide under his treatment, it is then the psychiatrist’s fault, not the dermatologist’s.

    … It seems that civilizations go bankrupt like people, first slowly, then quickly.

    There are several wider cultural trends discernible in the current agitation over transsexualism, or whatever name one wishes to give it. (“Words are wise men’s counters,” said Hobbes, “they do but reckon by them: but they are the money of fools.” It is only fair to add that, with inflation, money could soon become the money of fools.)

    … Nothing has proved too absurd for this intelligentsia to swallow; indeed, the swallowing of absurdity is easier for the intelligentsia than others, for rationalization is their métier. There is no point in being an intellectual if you think only what everyone else thinks.

    The most important question is, What next?—for there will be a next, because transgressive reform is what gives meaning to life in the absence of any other meaning. My money is on incest, against which there is no rational argument these days, given the availability of birth control and abortion and the moral authority of mutual consent. ‘
