About

Umslopogaas was a legendary and fierce Zulu warrior poet in the later 19th century. Uncompromisingly honorable, extraordinarily excentric and relentless in battle he was a force to be reckoned with, a titanic power to behold. Armed with his famed axe Inkosi-kaas he was also known as ‘the Woodpecker’ (for his tendency to peck at and subsequently drill scientific holes into the heads of his foes). Suffice then to say, he was an all out fighter who time and again would wade into the thick of things and slay and prevail even against the worst of odds…

I have chosen to name this blog Umslopogaas as a tribute to his memory and also because he serves as a symbol, a metaphor. I strive not to slay fiends and foes with pole axes, nay. Mine is a different war. My axe is my mind, I ‘peck’ at my foes with relentless analysis of their folly. I seek to shatter bigotry, destroy dogma and mercilessly shred the web of lies that has been spun by the mindless bleating horde of feminist succubae.

I will labour to provide general analysis and insights into the ‘Gender War‘ that continues to rage all around us, in the West. At the same time I’ll place special emphasis on helping recovering nice guys aka ‘the Lost Boys‘ whom I deeply care for. Suffice then to say, that I’ll be examining most issues out of their perspective and offer these men information and council on how to survive and thrive in an apocalyptic world that is increasingly hostile to their mere existance.

Finally, I see this blog as a small subsection of the great and glorious liberation movement that is Men’s Rights Activism.

    Hi!
    I’m sorry I didn’t really address your question – you struck a chord and I went rambling on about ME! Classic feminine emotional response!

    I’ve never been good at talking to women about anything of substance. It seems like I can’t say a single word without needing to define it, and justifying my definition. I work closely with an extremely irrational but sheltered woman, who doesn’t even realize that her husband coddles her and treats her like a child. I really don’t have an answer for how to speak rationally to women; you can be sure they don’t comprehend what you’re saying, yet you have no idea how the will perceive it. The only thing I have figured out is to be very careful with “code words” even if they are grammatically accurate, since people have politicized and redefined half of the language. You have no idea what you might set off by using (formerly innocent) words like ‘traditional,’ ‘feminist,’ ‘values,’ etc…

    I do have one suggestion to help you figure out if a woman is capable of rational thought. Plus it’s flattering to them: if you can tolerate the prattling, encourage a woman to express her feelings over, well, just about anything – someone she’s gossiping about, a news headline, a movie or TV series. Then pick out a word or phrase she uses often and ask her how she defines it. More prattling will follow. Learning how she defines a concept that is meaningful to her, should at least introduce you to her mental framework. It should get you to a point where you don’t feel like you’ve stepped into a Salvatore Dali painting. It can be useful whether you’re looking for a girl to seduce ( just don’t agree with her) or looking for more potential. A woman who can articulate the reasoning behind her opinions, even if that reasoning is uninformed and biased, might be worth your time.

    Thanks for visiting my blog!

      Very interesting. I will definitely try this out. My gut tells me, however, that many women’s definitions themselves are rather fickle. As in the interplay of emotions, moods and hormones oftentimes decide what in individual woman means with her words.

      One more thing: I have noticed that female language is a lot more subtext-based than male language. Communication by implication. So no outright attacks but rather sneaky, indirect ones. Take “Jesse” at HUS: evidently, many people feel insulted by her wording & statements. Because she never says these things directly, however, she always has plausible deniability.

      It’s almost like men are ‘battleships’ bluntly pounding each other….while women are ‘submarines’ sneaking up and then releasing a few torpedos and afterwards diving deep and oftentimes evading capture.

      Oh and many thanks for visiting my blog as well.

    Somewhat off topic of MRA.

    I’m seeing cheap flights from the UK to Hanoi, but am not finding cheap sites for what to do, where to go.

    Basically I don’t want to do the blind backpacker thing (I’m in my forties, can afford cheap hotel (not looking for luxury)), but neither do I want to pay some scumbag $8000 for a 30 day tour.

    I’m not asking for a detailed travel how to / where to article, but can you suggest any websites to look at?

    Cheers

      Hi,
      hmmmm my recommendation would be to just jump in there. Fly there, don’t take a tour. Rather buy a motorbike (secondhand is about 300$) and drive southwards along the coast. It’s an adventure, it’s fun and you can go at your own pace. You’ll have a lot of experiences and once outside of the capital and tourist zones should experience the real deal…the real Vietnam.

      And you can always sell the motorbike again once you’re ready to go back…

      I hope this helps.

    BTW

    I commented on your hamster warp drive post months ago. Something along the lines of ‘that drive taking you into the sun every damn time’. That comment and your response (favourable) have disappeared (or I have really fupped my search for it)

  4. Just1X says:

    if you can search comments, “every damn time” should be part of what I wrote.

    it’s not that my comment was important, it’s just that you appear to have disappearing content (and I didn’t piss you off!)

    cheers

    Hi. I’m a big fan of Umslopogaas Bulalio too, in fact I insisted my wife read ‘Nada the Lily’ so she would understand me better. Not sure if it worked…Anyway I found my way here looking for a link to the man with the axe to put in a partly autobiographical ebook I am working on, hope that’s OK.

    PS you mention the Men’s Rights Movement and Gender wars. You should read Milo’s new book Dangerous, out yesterday, in which he deals with these issues amongst many others. I downloaded it to my kindle and am enjoying it-he has a lot to say about gender wars.

    kind regards, and careful with that axe.
