It’s Necessary to Be a Man: Dr. Jordan Peterson

By | February 20, 2024

[February 20, 2024]  Too many feminists, politicians, and radical leftists are attacking manhood in the West.  However, some are pushing back on this ideology by giving us well-reasoned arguments about why manhood should be preserved.  Dr. Jordan Peterson is one of those who makes plain, common-sense arguments about the good side of manhood.

In a short take, he expresses his thoughts in response to who asks the question, “Is it okay to be a man?”  Here is what he said:

It’s not okay.  It’s necessary.  What the hell are we gonna do without men?  Look around the city here.  You see all these buildings go up.  These men they’re doing impossible things.  They’re under the streets, working on sewers.  They’re up on the power lines in the storm, in the rain.  They’re keeping this impossible infrastructure functioning.  Things that work in a miraculous manner.  They work themselves to death, now often literally.  The gratitude for that is sorely lacking, especially among the people who should be most grateful.

We see university professors, especially of the social justice bent, who are among the most protected and privileged people the world has ever produced.  They take everything they have for granted, failing to understand entirely that there’s a massive infrastructure of unbelievably hard-working, solidly laboring working-class men breaking themselves in half on a regular basis, making sure that everything that always breaks works.

It is not possible to say it any better.  Thank you, Dr. Peterson and good luck with your case of your country of Canada attacking you for these kind words for men.

    Dr. Peterson is a lovely thoughtful pragmatic man and we are very fortunate to have him. The crazies can go f— themselves and live in their horrific world where nothing is sacred or good anymore. The rest of us can move on with our lives trying our best to stay on the good path.

      David even says, “What is mankind that you are mindful of them?” (Psalm 8:4). In poetic language, David is asking, “Why does God care about us?” David meditates on Genesis 1:26 and remembers when God created humanity in his image, crowning them with glory and honor (Psalm 8:5).
      Genesis speak God in the creation says after all the creation, let us make man. Adam was made from the dust of the ground.
      Man is the highest glory of God. It pleased God for He says that’s “very good. “. When Doug gives the green light . I will be happy to address this issue in depth more

    Dr. Jordan Peterson is a great thinker and communicator. His basic idea is telling the truth, even when it hurts, and maybe especially when it hurts.

    Gen. Satterfield, today’s article is spot on. I’m loving it. Is it possible for you to cover the trial of Dr. Peterson for us?

    1. Bryan Z. Lee

      It’s over and dr. Peterson lost, so he now has to be “re-educated.” Sound familiar? It should.

    2. Douglas R. Satterfield Post author

      Nick, last November, Peterson, a professor emeritus with the University of Toronto psychology department, was ordered by the College of Psychologists of Ontario to undergo a coaching program on professionalism in public statements. And a Canadian court upheld this ruling. We all know it’s one of the worst things a judicial system could do. But, it’s Canada. I might write more on this in the future.

    Gen. Satterfield is all over it. “Too many feminists, politicians, and radical leftists are attacking manhood in the West. However, some are pushing back on this ideology by giving us well-reasoned arguments about why manhood should be preserved. Dr. Jordan Peterson is one of those who makes plain, common-sense arguments about the good side of manhood.” – Gen. Doug Satterfield

    Psychologist Dr Jordan Peterson has revealed his aspirations and goals for 2024. “I’m finishing up what I think will be two books,” Dr Peterson told Sky News Australia host Piers Morgan. “The first one is called We Who Wrestle With God, and it’s going to be an analysis of the fundamental stories of the Western world, and so that really means a biblical analysis. “One book is going to focus on the Old Testament, and the other on the New Testament. That’ll constitute the content for the tour that my wife and I are going on with some special guests, including Jonathan Pageau, that will run from February through May. 51 cities across the United States and then off to Central and South America, and I’m very much excited about doing that and recording it and releasing those recordings live.

    Is it okay to be a man? Dr. JP answers that question spectacularly. Feminists, please go away because you have destroyed womanhood, not freed it. 🙏

  7. Northeast

    Preorder his newest book, “We Who Wrestle with God” by Jordan B. Peterson (Author) coming out in Hardcover – November 19, 2024. I can’t wait.

    1. Willie Strumburger

      In We Who Wrestle with God, Dr. Peterson guides us through the ancient, foundational stories of the Western world. In riveting detail, he analyzes the Biblical accounts of rebellion, sacrifice, suffering, and triumph that stabilize, inspire, and unite us culturally and psychologically. Adam and Eve and the eternal fall of mankind; the resentful and ultimately murderous war of Cain and Abel; the cataclysmic flood of Noah; the spectacular collapse of the Tower of Babel; Abraham’s terrible adventure; and the epic of Moses and the Israelites.

      Just as Gen. Satterfield has done in part. Gen. S. is a disciple of JP. Good for us. Yeah!!!!!!!!

      1. Pastor John

        Thanks Willie …. I didn’t know this book was coming out. 🙏 Also praying for Dr. Jordan Peterson after the communists in Canada ruled against him speaking the truth. 🙏 Apparently, he hurts someone’s feelings by telling them the truth. 🙏 Is Canada lost? Yep. The USA is next.

  8. Janna Faulkner

    Dr. Peterson is the best. We need more MEN like him. Please Dr. JP, move to the US and stay away from communist Canada.

    1. Ron C.

      I agree with you Janna. Canada under Justin Trudeau has become a soft tyranny. Canadians – most anyway – love it that way. It’s sad time for Canada and Im embarrassed by out govt. And to prove it, both Trudeau and Biden are in cahoots over illegal migrants.
