Securing a Legacy through the Patriarchy

July 18, 2007
All the hypothesizing regarding what happened in the Benoit household pisses me the hell off. The particulars are of no consequence. The fact is, Chris Benoit murdered his wife and son (a child). Chris Benoit is a murderer. Steroids, no steroids, Chris Benoit is a murderer. Chris Benoit was male. Chris Benoit is a victim of nothing but his own making. He was paid, compensated, and encouraged to exist in the hypermasculine state that he chose to live in, he had many choices. Chris Benoit was born white and with a penis between his legs. He was born among the privileged class in western society. It does not matter if he was born dirt poor, he had default opportunities that many people including his wife could never claim and could never utilize to the level that he could and did.

Being a member of a quasi-warrior culture, Benoit did what he had to do to guarantee his legacy. His money and fame failed to distinguish him superior to the other hypermasuclines of his ilk. Therefore he took matters in his own hands. He synthetically made his muscles bigger. So what, another male made his even bigger. He abused his wife. So what. Another male put his woman in the hospital. The pissing contest had no ending in sight, so the quasi-warrior growing tired of waiting to claim a legacy invented one for himself. As a good and predictable sociopathic narcissist (what hyper-masculinity breeds), he created his own legacy, one that proves him the most vicious, the most violent, and the one who commits the most murders all wrapped up in a perfect blanket of victimhood (poor him, they made him do it, but at the same time kudos for the level of violence). Hyper-masculinity fails to exist without violence. There is no such thing as masculinity without violence. It does not exist.

Benoit needed not to have to murder outside of his family in order to cement his legacy of violence because the stakes are not at that point yet, in other words it is not yet necessary. Look at the media attention, dare I even say sympathy he has garnered. Through evolution, when the menz see that annihilating their family no longer guarantees a legacy then they will begin to take other families along with them. We are already beginning to see this happen in small dosages, but right now, it is still considered unacceptable to murder outside the family, still labeled as a mass murderer, as in someone who is bad, someone out of the ordinary. But it will just be a matter of time before mass murdering outside one’s family will become acceptable as well. Is anyone demanding Bush or Cheney’s head on a stick? Didn’t think so. It will not be long before ideological politics roll down into the family unit.

The fact is domestic violence is acceptable by western society, actually by most societies, because the victim is not typically the adult male but the women and children. Violence toward women is acceptable, look at how long a rapist gets in prison. Or how often the woman is believed. Or how often it is assumed it was her fault, even her murder is assumed her fault.

We know the names of Bobby Cutts Jr, Chris Benoit, Kevin Morrissey, Craig Stebic, David Munis, and that has just been this summer. But, the question is, do you know the names of their victims? Dead or in jail, the goal is actualized; people know their male names over other males. The end result,– their dick is the biggest, hence, they are the WARRIORS!

Here is a truly revolutionary thought, what about a male (heterosexual, homosexual, transsexual, queer, or fill in the blank, person born with penis) who refuses to emotionally, physically, or sexually abuse a woman or child? One who refuses to prop themselves up at the expense of a woman or child? Wow? An enigma. That would be truly revolutionary.

    I agree completely! You know, some days I just get sick of hearing about violence against women and then have someone try to make excuses for it.

    Likewise, I don’t care what he took or didn’t take.

    Peace,

    Much to think about in your post. I share your anger against our culture that continues to not be able to stop violence against women.

    But, the question is, do you know the names of their victims?
    They’re often not even mentioned in these stories. When Chris Benoit murdered his family, I looked through several articles before I even encountered the names Nancy and Daniel – the names of his wife and son.

    Actually, if he was on as much steroids as they claim, I doubt his dick was the biggest 🙂

    That wrestler’s murder of his family is murder, plain and simple. The fact that he took ‘roids is no excuse because he intentionally decided to take them. “Roid rage” is no more of an excuse than DUI’s are an “accident”. That person’s deliberate actions lead to the death of someone else….that’s murder in my book.
