I thoroughly recommend XY Crew, an initiative launched by the legendary American MRA Paul Elam. It’s a men-only initiative, you can join here (click on the “$5 tier” tab). The philosophy of XY Crew:
At XY Crew, we understand that modern man’s default relationship with the world he inhabits is abusive and exploitive. The very society that now paints him as a toxic threat nonetheless expects, no, demands that he surrender blood and treasure for even its most selfish whims. And should he falter or refuse to serve under the weight of that inequity, he is ridiculed and rejected.
This dysfunctional relationship contributes to male suicide and a host of other problems, all of which are met with depraved indifference by the world at large, including the mental health industry as we know it. We live in an age of codified hatred of men and boys.
Our approach to this social sickness is simple. The antidote to misandry is to respect and honor men. That’s the philosophy at XY CREW, and it’s the final word on why we’re here.
If you’re down for that, you’re welcome to JOIN US.
So, what do you get for your money?
- daily meetings (90 minutes) and an always-open cybershed
- the opportunity to buy a ticket (only $25.00) for the Jamboree in a 1,200 acre park near Paul’s home city of Roanoke, Virginia, over October 5-10, 2022. Further details here. I’m really looking forward to it.
I personally attend the very interesting and often hilarious meetings hosted by Tom Caulfield – the man behind all the ICMI videos since 2016 – at 7pm BST every Wednesday (7pm GMT when BST doesn’t apply). Tom was formerly a semi-pro photographer and what he doesn’t know about photography isn’t worth knowing (he also covers videography for thos with an interest in that). He’s a great teacher and I’ve learned so much from his meetings.
A couple of my photographs, taken in my back garden in Bedford one morning recently. The first is a damselfly, the second a bluebottle contemplating his breakfast:
