Five Steps to End Your Emasculation
(Note: To fully clarify this article, please feel free to Google the term “emasculation”).

Every man has felt emasculated at some point in their relationships, but it's not feeling that way that defines the man, but how you deal with it! Here are five sure-fire steps to end your emasculation and regain your manship-ness!
1. Quit whining about feeling emasculated.
Just the fact that you clicked on this page/article is evidence that you are a willing participant in your own emasculation. Now, it doesn’t matter if whining about your emasculation is expressed outwardly or if it’s simply a matter of your own inner dialog; what you project is what you get. Let me repeat that: what you project is what you get! Man up. Choke that shit back. ACT LIKE A MAN AND YOU’LL BE A MAN!
Sub-point: Just the fact that you were drawn to the prefix “sub” means that you may have your work cut out for you.
Hell, women themselves don’t consciously know what they think/feel/want. Asking them only frustrates them and highlights your own feelings of emasculation. Women are creatures of the subconscious. They not only live in the world of the subconscious, they own that shit. They may say they want a salad for dinner, but the truth is they would spit on their mother’s grave to have a ½ pound cheeseburger with extra bacon (Just so long as they can blame someone else for “making them” eat that burger). Order the burger for them and when they blame you, laugh it off…in their face. They may look mad as hell, but subconsciously you will have given them what they want and they’ll “subconsciously” thank you for it.
This extends to sex. Women may say they want a man who “is in touch with their feelings” or (the phrase that really chaps my ass) who “is man enough to be sensitive,” but the reality is they subconsciously want a man who takes charge, takes what he wants, but then points out that by doing so he was really taking care of her needs. (Hey, ever hear of the “Fifty Shades” thing?) Master this simple concept and you will prove that you can have your cake and eat it too!
3. Delete every goddamned slow song from your playlist.
I know they might help you express what you can’t express in your own words. I know they might help you get through some rough emotional times. But delete that shit! Playing a slow song does not show your inner complexity. Women know that real men don’t have inner complexity. Hell, they know we don’t even have any outer complexity. What we think of as “complex” women see as a single side of a Rubik’s cube. Play the hard rock/rap track every time. By doing so you’ll be giving women what they subconsciously want. (The only exception to this is Queen – wait…I take that back).
4. Quit sculpting that thing you call a beard.
Honestly, this is the only way a man can project abject femininity through the guise of masculinity. If it’s obvious that you spend umpteen hours a day clipping, trimming, sculpting, moisturizing, and, overall, primping your beard, you are publicly –and loudly-- proclaiming your emasculation. Women see this as a desperate plea for acceptance and desperation is the conjoined twin of emasculation. It flies in the face of what women subconsciously want. If you choose to grow a beard, make that choice for yourself. And then let it grow long, unkempt, unruly, manly. Then you can truly say that you are giving women what they subconsciously want: an unkempt, unruly man.
Shakespeare said it best. I think it was in one of his plays: “Be true to yourself, because then as sure as the world goes ‘round, you can’t be fakey to any woman.” Of course, I’m paraphrasing here (an un-emasculated man doesn’t take time to Google random shit, and if you took the time to Google “emasculate” at the beginning of this article…well, shame upon you friend).
The point being that, if you want a woman to like you, want you, friggin’ love you…then you’ve got to show your true colors. If she runs away from that, then guess what? It appears that she didn’t want a real man after all (remember that subconscious shit?). Or maybe she did and just got confused. Or maybe she didn’t and was simply looking for someone to dominate.
Rappin' It Up:
Who knows? But what you do know is that she wasn’t the one for you; otherwise she would have been okay with your uncompromising, un-whining, un-inquisitive, hard-rock playin’, unruly beard growin’, true-blue man of self and other men.
Go forth, (don’t) proclaim your un-emasculinity, and BE A MAN!
