A Family Divided

On Tuesday, November 3, 2020, the United States will commence the 59th quadrennial presidential election. The build up to this event is going to begin well before then which has me wondering, for the Trump supporting married/LTR men like myself, what are you going to do when your wife/girlfriend says to you, “We’re voting for anyone but Trump“?

If you don’t comply

  • Is she going to “Put you in the dog house“?
  • Are you going to be “Sleeping on the couch“?
  • No sex?
  • Threaten Divorce?
  • Judgement by your peer group, “friends”, and family?
  • Will she weaponize your children against you?

If you do comply

  • Do you then double-down on all anti-masculine messages?
  • Are you aware that you have set the precedent to being her man-servant for all matters in which you may have opposing opinions?
  • Is the blowjob or week of duty sex was worth a lifetime of self-sacrifice?
  • Do you realize how many of your fellow men will be impacted and suffer as their pro-masculine voices are snuffed out one by one?
  • Can you ever tell your children to stand up for what they believe in?

Err on the Side of Self

Election season is coming and you’re going to have to make some decisions, potentially ones which will have a long-term impact on your current relationships, both professional and personal.

You’re going to find the divisive nature of politics to creep its way into your home, whether you want it to or not and how you choose to respond from the onset will dictate how the rest of the election season goes for you.

Set yourself up for success, err on the side of enforcing boundaries, not finding a mutual territory where everyone wins.

You Lead Your Home, You Don’t Dictate Opinions

You are a man who for your reasons alone, have decided to support Donald Trump. I know why I do, I know my wife does (because I do), and for each man that reason will be different. If you are supporting Trump and your lady is not, you’ve got to recognize she is not you and she does not have to support your political opinion, but she does have to respect you.

This is going to be a brutal election season. Every time there is a story on the news regarding Trump, it’s negative. Every Supreme Court decision has been made to be anti-Trump, each action he’s taken, regardless of whether it had a positive or negative outcome, the end result was Trump is wrong.

Why is our President under attack?

Because Trump represents a unapologetic masculine voice which refuses to be culled. He is a man doing what a man does without the permission of those around him and by doing so, he has absolutely upset the narrative which society has been promoting for years.

This has pissed off the feminine imperative, SJWs, PC Police, and MSM who cater to the female consumer and they will be putting a lot of money out to ensure they don’t lose again.

They’re going to get their revenge and they’re aiming to wipe Trump and his supporters off the map for good in the next election. Unfortunately, the possibility of this coming to fruition is pretty likely to occur.

How will that happen?

Men will give in.

Your girl sees the barrage of anti-Trump campaigns flooding the market and she sees her lady friends rallying together. She doesn’t want to be left behind or face rejection from the group, so she adopts their rally cry and so it goes, you’re now living with a woman who is a “strong anti-Trump woman“.

She’s not you, no matter what it is she says, does, or offers she does not get to dictate your vote.

You are a man and you need to stand your ground.

I’d rather be divorced and splitting half of my assets than bow down and kiss the ring because my wife does not agree with my political decisions, if a woman is willing to nuke the family over your choice of presidential candidate, she is a shit wife and should be left anyways.

Most men are non-confrontational, passive, whatever doesn’t rock-the-boat type men and those fence sitters are going to be the ones who fall to the left to support their women and “not get in trouble with the boss“.

Those are the men we need to stand up, either way they vote, and make an individual decision without permission from anyone.

Your girl does not get to tell you what you’re going to do with your vote, nobody does that is the beauty of being an American.

When she challenges you, immediate and direct confrontation is the answer.

No, I’m not voting for not Trump, I’m voting for the best candidate and as of now, that is Donald Trump.

She can have a tantrum, she can call you out for being a misogynist, not a real man, racist, sexist, what the hell ever she has to say thinking it will trigger you.

As she is saying these things, get up and go to the gym; start working on developing yourself to being a man who will succeed on his own.

If a presidential election has a major impact on your marriage, you are married to a ticking bomb and it’s only a matter of time before she explodes so it’s best to begin to set yourself up for success now.

If your woman is a left leaning girl who will banter but not draw any lines, so be it, make it a fun part of the relationship and then you two go vote and watch the results, make bets of who does dinner or who owes who a movie or something depending on whose candidate wins.

The key point is that it is absolutely imperative that from the beginning you make it very clear where you stand on the political spectrum and you cannot give an inch to “mutual agreement” because it will be used against you later down the road.

Draw your line and defend your right to vote and right to be a man. There is nothing wrong with supporting Donald Trump, there is nothing wrong with disagreeing with your wife, there most definitely is something wrong with trying to self-sacrifice your way to happiness.

Save yourself and save the future by voting for who is best and not who is running against Donald Trump.

    How about this scenario ?
    Youre a masculine male who is not afraid to speak his mind, your woman is a femine lady who likes to support and submit to her man.
    And you both think Trump is an incompetent, self absorbed, neurotic child that deserves to be in jail ?

    Seriously Hunter, that essay was ridiculous and you know it. Lets sad the Dems offer Joe Biden, also a masculine, fearless man, but one who has intelligence and integrity.

    Why would you still want to vote for a child when you can have a masculine leader with a brain ?

    • Hunter Drew says:

      Think about what you just said?

      This piece is for those who support Trump and their girl doesn’t.

      Much more likely than the scenario presented.

      If you both think he is an oaf then you’re good, no issue.

      But that isn’t the case for everyone.

      • Rudd says:

        C’mon, there is a clear subtext in your message that Trump is the saviour of masculinity, which is a ridiculous assertion.

      • Hunter Drew says:

        Of course you saw that, I intentionally slid it in towards the end as a sort of jab at the “anti-Trump” group.

        I also made it clear, Vote for who is best.

        Not who is left, right, blue, or red.

        Vote for who is best, it’s what I do.

    • Stephan says:

      Holy shit dude… Joe Biden is a fucking pedophile, honestly I can’t even find an iota of common ground.

    • Mountain Bear says:

      Oh you mean creepy joe..the same guy who cant keep himself from pawing little girls during photo – ops. Wow..so thats your example of a “ masculine, fearless man”. Well..I’ll give it to you there – creepy joe is certainly fearless – when it comes to openly molesting children.

  • Ralph C says:

    I get the point of this writing, stand up for what one believes no matter what others think, be your wife, boss, neighbor, whoever. That’s great.

    I also get that the MSM is going against Trump for whatever reasons. That’s the way it works, the so-called democracy.

    But, come on, what does it has to do, that he is indeed a masculine man, with his work as a president, i.e. an employee of the whole society to represent the better possible way it’s interests??

    “Do you realize how many of your fellow men will be impacted and suffer as their pro-masculine voices are snuffed out one by one?”

    Do you really believe that THE way to avoid that is keeping Trump in the white house?

    The manosphere, blogs like these, and masculine men waking up maybe today a minority, but its growth does not, and should not, depend on Trump -or any other.
    It’s a fire that has started and it’s not getting any smaller. It’s up to us to keep it and not up to any politician.

    I really found this post weird and weak, in contrast with the rest of the site’s content.

    • Mountain Bear says:

      Oh concerned troll is so very concerned. Hey you know what- were beyond giving a shit what people like you think. The stakes are too high. Losing gracefully, with your dignity intact has done wonders for us…if you enjoy living in clown world. Keep adjusting that bow tie and remaining the most “respectable” man in the room. Why the rabid progs might even let you keep it while your herded off to the gulag.

  • Mountain Bear says:

    Even better – tell your girl that this is a Trump home and thats how were voting. I’ve done that in our home and the funny thing is shes been more than willing to go along with it. And this from a wife who has been slightly left but mostly apolitical.
    Now the negative nancies will bray “how controlling”. To them I’ll say this : it cant hurt me too bad- after 7 years of marriage she still brings me coffee every morning while I’m still in bed and gives me head on a regular basis.

  • LJ says:

    Looks like people missed the point of the post. It is currently socially wrong and politically incorrect to support our president. I’ve read comments from gay people saying it was harder for them to come out about voting for trump then actually coming out. If you want to vote against Trump great, no one is going to harass and bully you on the internet, you are doing what all the media is telling you to do, and you will be popular with feminists. This post is for those that vote for Trump, as they are the people who will get beaten up online. At least that’s how I see it. I voted for Trump, so did my wife. Will I do it again, who knows. It will come down to who is running against him. I don’t apologize to anyone for it.

  • Brian says:

    I’ve been reading a few articles on this site and implementing changes as a result. I’m married with 4yo twins. The advice here is solving many of my marital problems and empowering me to be a protector, a decision maker, and the man my wife has been craving. Really I just needed some direction. So thank you for that.

    However this article really makes me question your judgement. Politics aside, Donald Trump is not worthy of respect. It’s as plain as that. Regardless how the media portrays him, he’s dishonest, selfish, and a coward.

    Being loud and not giving a fuck may make you intimidating, but it doesn’t make you strong. He doesn’t have the quiet confident stable masculinity you describe in other articles. I would protect my daughter from people like Trump! His apathy and narcissism are mistaken for assertiveness and decisiveness. Aren’t women supposed to be attracted to strong masculine men? Why is his support among women so bad? It’s because he’s weak and they know it. His weakness coupled with his power makes him dangerous.

    I know the point of the article is to stand up and vote for who you think is the best. I have no problem doing that. I don’t even care that you and maybe tons of men on this site will vote for Trump. I think that’s a great expression of our freedom and I fully support it as a proud American! What I can’t comprehend is how you can associate such a poor example of manhood like Trump to such a high standard of masculinity reflected in your other articles. If you’re confident that Trump is a good example of masculinity then I’m convinced that toxic masculinity is real, and there’s probably a healthy balance to be struck between the masculine and feminine.

  • Dblezy says:

    Personally I really don’t care about a woman’s politics. It truly is pointless. I only care about what men have to say as we are the ones that will be held accountable. Yea sure women got the right to vote but they never got equal responsibilities. They don’t have to sign up for selective service nor have been drafted for any of the wars they we had post 1920.

    I digress. Theoretically speaking if a man is leading properly his woman should follow what he does. Voting different is a house divided and a man should correct this. Also why should the wife care much about politics anyways? Most feminine woman do not. Only the modern types do.
