I’ve looked more into criticism of Stefan Molyneux’s ideas, and his behaviour. It seems obvious to me that he holds deep resentment towards women, and especially his mother. He was raised by a single mother, and apparently abandoned by her, which is unfortunate. But what is more unfortunate is that he seems to wish to project this abandonment to everyone else too, or at least to other men.
Molyneux says that women who have a child without having a husband are abusive, and it’s “incredibly selfish and destructive thing to do”. I was raised by a single mother, so I can honestly say Mr Molyneux can go fuck himself, since my mom did a decent job. Should she have given me and my brother to the state when I was five, the time my parents split up? Perhaps get a late abortion?
But how can I insult this loving man by telling him to go fuck himself, since he’s so nice as not having killed his mother, because the bond between parent and child is so strong. Molyneux said about his mother: “That’s why she’s not fucking dead now [because she’s his mother]! The bond was strong enough that I didn’t fucking kill her, and that’s my forgiveness.” So magnanimous. I don’t know what his mother did to him, but as far as I know she didn’t sexually abuse him or anything. Maybe she beat him, but I’m more inclined to believe Stefan is just fucked up, and his mother was a normal human being who did some mistakes.
Molyneux is not content simply blaming his mother for his problems, but wishes others blame their moms too. In one video a caller is complaining his father is manipulative, but Molyneux twists it around to make the caller focus on his mother instead. Without actually knowing the full details of problems of the caller and his parents, Molyneux makes an universalist statement that “women are responsible for creating families”. Molyneux thinks its “bullshit” the caller holds less resentment towards his mother than his father. He’s obviously projecting his own traumas onto others.
Women who are being financially supported by men are “estrogen based parasites”, according to Molyneux. “Stef” made an hour long video on the death of Robin Williams. Molyneux ends up blaming Williams’ ex-wives being greedy that lead to his alleged suicide.
I think it’s normal for heterosexual men to hold some resentment toward women due to various disappointments, as well as adoration. And women probably feel the same way about men, but Molyneux is clearly overboard in his misogyny. I hate to use the word, since it’s over-used by feminists and other Cultural Marxists, but it seems appropriate here.
Stefan Molyneux is nearly a 50-year old man who has mother issues. How about you grow up, instead of airing your dirty laundry in front of everyone? Moreover, although he is married and has at least one child, he seems to have some issues with sex. He’s clearly not satisfied in that department. Otherwise, he wouldn’t be this hostile toward women: “I don’t know how to make the world a better place without holding women accountable for choosing assholes.” He doesn’t sound at all like a wussy geek complaining that girls like macho jocks… Been there, done that. It doesn’t help to be a whiney bitch about it.
Molyneux is the one who should be getting psychiatric help, instead of offering his advice to others. Talk about the blind leading the blind.
EDIT: In this video Molyneux completely contradicts his claims that adopted children do as well as biological ones. He says that people who do what is necessary to have a child, but not what is necessary prevent having the child without having capacity to raise the child is not smart. And this lack of smartitude is genetically hereditary, or something.
