Some Of That Good Old Fashioned Masculinity

Real Men Saved Lives in Thousand Oaks

The mass shooting at a Thousand Oaks, Calif., bar last week was a tale of men and masculinity. The killer was a 28-year old Marine corporal who had completed a tour in Afghanistan in June 2011. 



There were other young men there, too, including 20-year-old Matt Wennerstrom. In interviews, Mr. Wennerstrom looks like a typical college student—backward baseball cap, gray T-shirt and jaw scruffy with a few days’ growth. On camera, he seems laconic, humble, willing to answer questions, neither eager for the limelight nor afraid of it.

As soon as he heard the shots, Mr. Wennerstrom told ABC News, he knew “exactly what was going on.” He and some friends grabbed everyone they could and pushed them down behind the pool table, piling their own bodies on top of the girls. One woman, who was celebrating her 21st birthday, told “Good Morning America”: “There were multiple men who got on their knees and pretty much blocked all of us with their back toward the shooter, ready to take a bullet for every single one of us.”

When the shooter paused to reload, Mr. Wennerstrom grabbed a bar stool and tossed it through a window. He and his buddies pulled 30 to 35 people to safety. After they got some to the parking lot, they went back for more.

This is the masculinity we so often hear denigrated. It takes as its duty the physical protection of others, especially women. This masculinity doesn’t wait for verbal consent or invitation to push a person out of harm’s way.

The way so many women have a natural ease with caring for children, so, too, do many men have the instinct to protect and serve. We can harness it, but it doesn’t proceed automatically. It is a refined sort of masculinity that must be developed and praised. The military has done this for years. Only the educated classes have learned to sneer at it. Would that they never need it.

There will always be young men like the Thousand Oaks shooter, full of rage, mentally unstable, living with mom, failing to launch. We can work to eliminate the threat they pose or treat whatever mental disease hobbles them. But we will never stop every malefactor from obtaining a weapon. 

Mr. Wennerstrom and his buddies missed the lecture that young women don’t require protection. Many lives were saved as a result.

Bring on more masculine toxicity


It could have gone another way

An important read on the revolution that is going on now

.....progressive messaging cannot win 51 percent approval without changing the demography — and changing the demography is impossible without constitutional nullification.
That is what "immigration" is all about.

• Truth vs. social justice. The left prioritizes social justice over free speech, respect for facts, and the marketplace of ideas. 

• Individual vs. group identity. The left sees people primarily as members of groups defined by race, class, sex and sexual orientation.


• Growth vs. redistribution. The left adopts economic policies that explicitly prioritize equality overgrowth in the apparent belief that the poor suffer more from relative deprivation than absolute poverty.

This what today feels like to me


“A grand canyon has opened up in our world.” On one side is the new right, promoting a bizarre mixture of Christianity and libertarianism; on the other, the “illiberal liberals”, obsessed with identity politics and complaining about things like cultural appropriation. These tiny factions war above, while the rest of us watch, aghast, from the chasm below.

LOL Or Not - One Day Only

Here we are again. This the 11th year OBB has participated in LOL. We are only in for one day. Come here tomorrow and the led post will be political.

LOL Day is supposed to be about encouraging lurkers to make comments. Blogs are best when interactive. We really enjoy knowing what you are thinking. Your thoughts often give us an idea for another post. It would be a gift to us for you to comment on some posts we make during the coming year.

OBB may not be your cup of tea, but we feel OBB is different from any other spanking blog. Never the best, but always different.


If I could, I would require readers to comment every three months or lose lurking rights. 


PS to the deep lurkers

20% of all OBB traffic is to posts made five years ago. Yep, every damn day 300 people search for "spanked by my MIL" and read the same post again. Losers!

Laughing and Crying

I always wondered if Joni Mitchell had more in mind than the obvious with these lyrics:


One minute she's so happy
Then she's crying on someone's knee
Saying, laughing and crying
You know it's the same release

The knee reference could go two ways. I agree with her that laughing and crying are the same release, but I would add sex and spanking. You could get the trifecta spanking, crying and sex that would really chill one out.

Comments You Don't Want.

When OBB was new, we got comments like the one below on a regular basis.

Being a male, my wife "Mommy" knows the hairbrush brings the results she wants. I first felt the hairbrush seeing an older woman. My language and attitude she finally had enough. I was over her lap, bare bottom in position and that hairbrush got my attention. I can kick, squirm, plead, does no good, she still stop only when she knows my bottom will be difficult to sit on and that i will think hard before doing it again. When she does stop, stands me up, she holds that hairbrush in front of me and reminds me what will happen. Women and hairbrushes men should watch out.

These sort of comments were never on target and always included more grammatical errors than even I can make. I count four in this one, but it's not the grammar that irritates, it's telling and re-telling their little story on someone's else's blog anonymously.

Deleting the comments and changing the content of OBB ran them away.  

All this to say it was really good when folks like you that share our interests found OBB and started commenting.
