The All-Singing, All-Dancing Men’s Rights Movement

Not a picture of Jade Michael and the FTSU Crew

The Men’s Rights Movement now has a theme song! A couple of talented young men calling themselves Jade Michael and the FTSU Singers Crew have put together a catchy little grunge rock number they call Go My Own Way, which will now serve as the opening music for the A Voice for Men internet radio show.

As AVfM head cheese Paul Elam puts it, straining his prose-generating abilities to the breaking point as he attempts to find words eloquent enough to describe this new musical masterpiece:

Jade Michael, artist, professional musician and MRA, founder of Artistry Against Misandry, has taken his talent hammer and given it a mighty swing to our benefit.  He has forged, in the fires of his own passion, the new theme song for AVfM Radio, titled Go My Own Way. It is not to be confused with the similarly titled offering from Fleetwood Mac, Go Your Own Way. No, not in the least. Jade, with his band, Jade Michael and the FTSU Crew, have produced a veritable anthem for the red pill crowd. It is replete with a great, purist rock sound, a touch of humor, attitude, and a ton of gut level, red pill honesty. Pay close attention to the end for the invocation of Thomas James Ball.

Without further ado, here’s the song:


You can find the full lyrics on YouTube and on AVfM. But I thought I’d share a few of my favorite bits.

The song starts off by addressing one of the most savage injustices faced by men today: evil ladies who expect men to hold doors open for them.

And we’re through with holding doors
Entitlements abound
You say that we still hold you down
And you cop that attitude
No remorse or gratitude

Seriously, ladies, would it hurt you to say “thank you” once in a while, to the men who literally enable you to walk through walls, by holding open the doors you would otherwise be unable to open? To paraphrase Barbie: Doors are hard!

Then there’s this bit:

You’re obsessed with my ability
I won’t be your utility
I’ll never carry you
And I sure won’t marry you

Women around the world, consider what you’re losing here: no longer can you expect to marry guys who hate you so much they made a song about how they won’t hold doors open for you!

And let’s not forget:

Cos’ the time has come to fuck your shit up
The time has come to fuck your shit up
The time has come to fuck your shit up

Perhaps I’m missing some of the subtleties here, but this sort of suggests to me that Jade and the Gang are not so much Men Going Their Own Way as they are Men Still Hanging Around Acting Like Assholes — not MGTOW but MSHAALA.

I appreciate the efforts of Jade Michael and the MSHAALA, but I can’t really help but think of this little song-and-dance number, from the excellent Belgian horror film Calviare (The Ordeal), as the Men’s Rights movement’s unofficial anthem.

In case you’re wondering, this scene makes a little bit more sense in the context of the movie itself. A little bit. It’s actually quite a brilliant little film with some interesting gender stuff going on in it, if you can deal with fairly violent horror films. But, oh my lord, TRIGGER WARNINGS for pretty much every trigger there is.

NOTE: In case you’re wondering about the song’s reference to Thomas Ball:  Ball burned himself to death outside a courthouse in Keane, New Hampshire last year in a protest against what he saw as unfair treatment in family court. He hoped that his suicide would inspire other men to start firebombing courthouses and police stations. (This wasn’t mere rhetoric; in the lengthy manifesto he left behind he provided tips on how to make effective Molotov cocktails.) Naturally, many in the MRM have hailed him as a martyr for Men’s Rights.

Oh, rper, I hate to tell you, but you’re no NWOslave.

He’s not even a Toy Soldier or a Hengist, and that’s setting the bar as low as it gets.

And really, though, if you are going to appropriate Dylan for the MRM, then at least use “It Ain’t Me, Babe.” If there ever was an eloquent statement of a Man Going His Own Way, it’s that song–though I don’t think ol’ Bob was directing the sentiments at all womankind. Unlike our MGTOW chums, the narrator of the song actually does GHOW.

rper, you really need to admit to a creepy personal activity such as putting perfume on dolls or secretly filming your girlfriend having sex, spout a 9/11 or Holocaust conspiracy theory, or use a nonsensical all-caps signoff. Then keep doing that around 6 hours a day for 10 months and maybe, just maybe, you’ll be in the running. You’ve got to want it, boy.

@Ozy, that article was brilliant. I am going to keep it and show it to all of my future partners forever and ever.

@captainbathrobe, might I suggest this as another folksy alternative? It’s douchey, and yet the gentleman actually LEAVES at the end.

If we’re doing Peter, Paul and Mary songs, how about this cautionary tale about how women look nice, but are terrible on the inside? Sorry about the brief intro, it’s the only original recording I could find.

Confession: I totally love this song.

Ooh, a Forever Alone — er, Men “Going Their Own Way” — anthem. How inspiring!

Hey MRA’s, any three year old throwing a tantrum at the grocery checkout line already has your theme song and world view covered.

As for Elam and the rape acquittal thing…I’ve been trying to come up with a suitable cosmic justice consequence to wish on him…cant think of any…good thing I’m not radfem, I’d never cut it.

I agree that instead of producing songs that sound like Nickelback on Thorazine they should just co-opt songs that are actually good such as ‘Sonne’ by Rammstein. The video’s theme of poor men/dwarfs in the thrall of an evil woman/snow white would probably appeal to their sensibilities.

“Rocking the suburbs” mirrors rage against the machines “Killing in the name” where

Fuck you i wont do what you tell me

is replaced by

Yall dont know what its like being male, middle class and white

plus there is this gem:

I’m rocking the suburbs, just like jon bon jovi did
Im rocking the suburbs, except that they were talented

Ah, yeh, whatever white,, middle class boyz.,,,, 🙂

Re Elam and the acquitting rapists.

Have a read of this;

http://www.helium.com/items/1393688-sexual-abuse-therapy-drug-abuse

Elam was a drugs counsellor. In this story, he relates how he counsels a young, female victim of incestual abuse. Sadly, she killed herself, as many victims do. I wonder if Elam would acquit her abuser?

I will always think it’s scary that Elam was a counselor.

The girl was probably lying about the abuse to frame an innocent man. Sure there are multiple studies showing that the percentage of false abuse claims is only %10 but those are feminist lies.

Crumbelievable

Oh look, one study says that it might be as high as 35%. Most of the other studies show the numbers to be much lower, but who cares. 35%, that’s about the same as the number of false rape accusations according to Kanin’s study. We should acquit all men accused of domestic abuse even in the face of overwhelming evidence that they’re guilty! Can’t argue with that logic.

I had a strong suspicion of this before, but that Paul Elam article nailed it: I’m 90% certain that he’s an abuse survivor himself. Not that that would excuse his extreme misogyny, but it would explain something about the source of his rage. 🙁

” I’m 90% certain that he’s an abuse survivor himself. Not that that would excuse his extreme misogyny, but it would explain something about the source of his rage.”

And that’s why therapy exists.

Medium Dave, if you look at the article called “Living With Alzheimer’s” that he did, you get a definite sense of him having serious issues with his dad.

…if you look at the article called “Living With Alzheimer’s” that he did, you get a definite sense of him having serious issues with his dad.

Yeah, definitely. And he wouldn’t be the first, or last, former victim to channel his pain in a direction that’s both inappropriate and destructive (the MRA “hero” Thomas Ball is perhaps another one).

It turns my stomach to think of Elam counseling anyone, male or female. If he’s anywhere near as fucked up off the Internet as he is on it, then there’s no way his patients are being helped. Somebody ought to print out his posts and distribute them around his area of practice so that everyone knows to stay far, far away.

I just listened to the song. Dear god, that is bad.
