It’s incredibly difficult to discern universal moral standards, especially those who are shared by religious and non-religious men alike. Not everyone agrees about everything, for one reason or another. It could concern drugs, hurting animals for other purposes than eating them, or simply casual sex. Some even suggest that the very idea of contemporary ethics is just a means to keep modern males in check.

Be that as it may, we can still share our values, beliefs, and experiences in order to find common ground or simply put forward different perspectives that enrich our way of thinking and acting. My angle here is to give examples of things that I have said no to in life.

1. Get Fat
Getting fat is one of the worst things a man can do. It makes you less appealing to women which is bad enough if you are married but even worse if you are single. It sets a bad example for your kids and destroys your self-confidence.
It makes it more difficult to move which means you’ll have less inclination to exercise—which will make you even fatter. Your sleep quality will suffer. And you will be at more risk for a whole host of diseases that are caused by poor diet: heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, sleep apnea, low libido, and man boobs.
If you are already fat you must make it your first priority to drop the pounds. Start immediately.
Stop Lifting Weights
You are lifting weights, aren’t you? Never stop. Once a man reaches his mid twenties, he will start to lose 1% of his muscle mass every year. At the beginning, the change is not noticeable but by the time a man reaches his fifties the weakness will begin to be apparent.

2. Be Passive
The symbol for man is a circle with an arrow pointing outward. Men are oriented outward by nature. We are meant to be active in the world fighting, trading, toiling, and ruling. It is not part of our character to be passive or to give up.
Compare the male symbol with the symbol for female.
Some speculate that the origin of the symbol for woman is a mirror, which women have used throughout history. Where men are oriented toward the outside world, women are directed inward. Women, by nature, are not meant to be out there trying to make a mark in the world. Their role is to be wives and mothers. Men and women are complementary.
Given the difficult environment that we live in today, lots of men have just given up. Men must always resist that temptation. There are times when you may temporarily withdraw from the heat of battle to regain your strength. Once you have, it is back to arms.

3. Wear Sports Jerseys
Watching sports, like anything in moderation, can be a harmless diversion but it gets silly once you start buying overpriced swag from your favorite teams. Professional sports are dominated by owners who faithfully peddle the SJW line on every point. The NFL is the worst of these. It has been pushing feminism just as hard as Hollywood. Don’t let your hard earned dollars go to fund these leftist fat cats.
Besides, why on earth would you wear a shirt with another man’s name on the back? There is one exception to this rule. If your son is a fan of a particular player it’s obviously acceptable to wear matching jerseys—it is for a higher good.

4. Make A Woman The Center Of Your Universe
A good woman is one of the greatest blessings you will ever find. For overall happiness, a string of one-night stands does not hold a candle to her. But even the best woman is a creature just like you. While she deserves to be cherished she does not deserve to be put on a pedestal. If that applies to the woman that you marry, it applies even more to women that you date.
The irony is that if you hold women in too high regard, they will treat you poorly in return. Make a woman your “everything” is a sure way to get dumped or cucked. This is because women were never meant to be a man’s reason for living. A man must have a higher calling—a higher mission—than just being Sally’s husband or boyfriend.

I can’t tell you what your mission is. For some, it will be ushering in the kingdom of God. For others it may be bringing about a sane political order, becoming a champion mixed martial artist, or starting a successful company. Whatever it is, never lose sight of your mission. The woman will come along as part of it.

5. Hard drugs
Drugs and narcotics are two real moral minefields. A complete consensus between men is highly unlikely, given the multiple historical, scientific, spiritual, legal and individual aspects that affect them in regard to such matters.
Distinguishing between “natural” and “unnatural” drugs is hardly of any help. Some natural stuff can be quite toxic, whereas for example most synthetic sleeping pills in moderate doses and for short term use appear as low risk and perfectly reasonable to consume.

Yet, common sense and social norms have told me to stay away from hard and toxic stuff like LSD, heroin, PCP, crack and other junkie drugs. In my 20s I was a bit (((open-minded))) when I was drinking alcohol and some fellow cared to share, but I’ve always tried to make certain rules and avoid hard drugs.

6. Anabolic steroids
Despite of being involved in fitness and bodybuilding for many years, I have never been offered anything at a gym environment or by a bro. However, given that a person is interested in using some type of performance-enhancing substance it’s not hard to find a dealer, whether online or offline.
After weighing the totality of pros and cons (financial, physical, legal and mental), combined with having sort of a general “never cheat” mentality, I have decided to not juice it up. Perhaps you should do too.

7. Fuck fatties
I have rather early in life come to the conclusion that sleeping with a ham beast will bring a net loss to your internal well-being, hence I have avoided it at all cost.
The actual sex act itself and memories of such a mischief are likely horrendous, but adding to the fact that you have let yourself sink that low is probably even more regrettable and discomforting, and will further pour salt on the wound

8. Have a gay friend
We all know that prejudices often turn out to be predominantly true, especially if they are backed by facts and reason. Most homosexuals that I have come across in real life have turned out to be neurotic at best and promiscuous STD-spreading junk people at worst. The most intelligent and sophisticated ones are probably only very good at hiding what they are doing during their vacations.

After never had any gay friend throughout life, due to my prejudices and instinctual homophobia, I feel that I absolutely miss – nothing at all. Leave some stones unturned.

9. Be nice to annoying people
Personally, I am fairly kind and polite to almost all people. For instance, at my mother’s former work there’s a lightly retarded female (supported by governmental handouts) whom I am friends with on social media. She likes almost every goddamn photo or text message that I happen to disseminate, but never bothers me the slightest. Thus I have absolutely no reason for not seeing her as a harmless and even slightly sympathetic person. The same goes for people who have different opinions than me.
But that’s where I draw the line. If an individual, for whatever reason, completely lacks appropriate social skills and annoys me with text messages, phone calls, doorbell ringing or whatnot I will not tolerate that for more than a second after the first few evasive attempts.

It might be that I am simply less agreeable than most people, but my level of toleration for the annoying organisms on earth is fairly low.

10. Let other guys run you over
On the bully spectrum I was closer to the bullies than the victims in elementary school, but there were always a couple of guys that you had to fight back or earn their respect before they stopped. In high school there were never such problems by any side where I was living, besides from the senior soccer team in which some of the older guys believed that they could say and do whatever they wanted. The team leaders did even support them.
While a little bit of rough jargon and informal hierarchies are okay, even beneficial for building character, you should never let them take it too far. Hence one time, during soccer practice, I had a fight with a guy (23, I was 18). I threatened him and behaved very aggressively, both verbally and physically, so he ended up calling our coach and complaining like a little bitch. I think back and see this as a great move.
We develop as men when we make good decisions. Sometimes it’s important to say no before bad things occur and you lose your sense of honor.
