Tiger Woods - A Lesson for all Men
December 18, 2009
by Henry Makow Ph.D.
(This revises my March 2008 article on
Eliot Spitzer, to apply to Tiger Woods.)
Tiger Wood's downfall contains an almost Biblical lesson for all men: Don't be controlled by your dick. It will ruin your life.
Tiger Woods had everything: a beautiful wife and family, athletic achievement and fortune, and the respect of the whole world. Why throw it away for skank?
This seems to be the year for athletes self-destructing over women.
Last summer, retired (and married) Tennessee Titan quarterback Steve McNair was shot dead by a girlfriend who feared he was going to dump her. She then shot herself.
Today, Cincinnati Bengal receiver Chris Henry died during a domestic dispute with his fiance. And closer to home, Winnipeg Blue Bomber coach Mike Kelly got fired today after roughing up an ex-girlfriend (who probably attacked him first.)
The lesson for men: Sow your wild oats (not in hook-ups but in longer-term relationships.) Then, marry for life. Find a woman who is naturally traditional and accepts your leadership. Devote yourself to her and to your children. Restore to marriage and family the sanctity they deserve.
Sex is a powerful force. Either we control it or it (and woman) controls us. Like Samson, Woods forfeited his power for sex.
Men are fighting a powerful meme created by the banker-owned mass media. Although sexual attraction is part of a natural instinct to propagate, the media has turned it into an entertainment, therapy and commodity.
It proclaims anonymous sex is an end in itself, meaningful and liberating. Men have been programmed by media culture as much as by our hormones. We need to question the assumption that young women and sex are the be-all and end-all. A man's work should be his primary focus.
It's time we deconstructed anonymous sex. Somehow, females have gotten the upper hand. Much like the diamond cartel, they have hoodwinked males into thinking that a commodity as commonplace and plentiful as p---y is rare and precious. It's not. In Andy Warhol's words, "Sex is the biggest nothing in the world."
I'll never understand why a man would owe a woman for sexual gratification. Why shouldn't she owe him? Sex is just as necessary for her. What fools men are. Don't they know that all cats are gray in the dark?
The excitement for a man is a woman's response to him. How responsive can a woman be to a hook-up? How satisfying can it be if, as in Eliot Spitzer's case, the meter is running? In anonymous sex, both parties are miming what they think should be happening, rather than admitting that the experience is empty and degrading.
IN DEFENSE OF MASTURBATION
Masturbating is a far better solution for single men compared to anonymous sex. Do I have to list the advantages? You can have your flawless woman and fantasy. You don't have to worry about satisfying her. Afterward, she's gone instantly. And there's no chance of pregnancy or STD. Oh yeah. It's FREE. And often it's better. (I'm talking about relieving the pressure from time to time, not addictive behavior.)
Let's deconstruct the fertile female while we're at it. Having lost her ability to love men and children, young women today are in danger of becoming obsolete. They are scrawny men, with narrow shoulders, a couple of vestigial feed bags (filled with silicon instead of milk, symbolic), and some unsightly jungle below.
Young women are pretty much physically identical. As one wag said, "Put a clock in it."
What other creatures get by largely on their looks? Only a narcissist would imagine her looks are exceptional. There are millions just like her.
Despite the tedious repetitive nature of the product, male yokels have pandered for it for centuries.
The only thing that truly differentiates women is beauty, grace, talent, intelligence, character and personality. Yet most young women today ignore these and compete on the basis of sex appeal.
Similarly, most men are unable to look beyond the physical artifice. Yet understanding the human being inside is the key to success or failure.
I love feminine women, the kind that marry and sacrifice for husband and family, the kind that know that feminine is the opposite of masculine.
We live in a culture that promotes arrested development by inflating the status of women and teaching men to obey them, with sex as their dog treat. Of course women eventually tire of this, and men end up neutered and alone.
Tiger Woods spent too much time overachieving and didn't develop emotionally. Part of that requires we get sex out of our system. Realize how truly mundane it is. That there is no "there" there. With all the sex available, with all the porn, when will men finally learn that casual sex is a bore?
Men must also realize that no woman can give them what they really seek--- themselves. You get that by serving God (i.e. a spiritual ideal.)
Romantic love also is a crock. Women are just companions on the journey. Real love is based on meeting mutual needs over a long period of time. It is based on sticking with someone when they're down. It's based on loyalty and trust.
In closing, let's learn from Tiger Wood's folly. Sex is used to control men (and women.) When we control our sex drive, we are free to serve a higher master.
This seems a good time to plug my friend Julian Lee's website www.celibacy.info dedicated to teaching men the benefits of abstinence. My interview with Julian is available in my Broadcast section.
