    Toxic feminism.

    Jon is one of the few actors I actually could see myself having a drink with. He seems like a really solid dude

    Jon Bernthal has been a favourite ever since the first episode of The Walking Dead. His performance as Shane was on point, and he’s SO GOOD at portraying conflicted, complex characters.

    I hope to see him reprise his role as Frank Castle in The Punisher in a near future.

    Jon Bernthal strikes me as the sane and reasonable antidote to roided up and idiot masculinity pretenders like Joe Rogan, Tucker Carlson or Jordan Peterson. His mention of the samurai is key. To be a true man in this world, you need to have honor. And to possess honor you have to love and care for something or somebody. To be constantly the backup for those you love. If you, as a man, don’t have someone to care for– a good friend or a pet or your child or your partner– and aren’t constantly working to expand that love, then you don’t even know what you’re fighting for.

    Kindness and honor is what guides the use of your strength.

    It was never about the “feminine side” in the samurai code of bushido. It was about the principle that destroying is much easier than creating. And art, caligraphy, poetry, required imagination, spontaneity, creativity, improvisation; those are needed qualities in battlefield commanders and the Shoguns recognized that. Those aren’t purely “female” qualities. “Toxic masculinity” is a term made up and used by typically toxic feminists.

    I hope he knows that code of the samurai stuff was invented after they were basically useless as real warriors and had become instead a social class, to keep them busy.

    She Hulk, No Way Home and Hawkeye have opened the door, maybe we get to see Punisher again? Maybe even as Frankencastle now that Werewolf by Night seems to have done well?

    That was horrible advice. The man will end up doing everything and expecting the woman to appreciate it and give sex. Women get turned on when they nourish men.

    Any time Jon Berthal speaks, I listen. Whether I agree with his point of view or not, his comments are always well thought-through. He’s so genuine.

  • Doug Unfunny 3 months ago

    YES i know we full audio on podcast apps but can you just upload full video podcast. I like to watch full video when i can. it would be nice if you offered both.

    Jon’s awesomeness knows no bounds.He’s just the most down to earth guy I’ve ever heard speak

    In nature, “Alpha Males” are just fathers (or paternal figures). In your group of friends, the guy who always has a snack, acts as the designated driver, and resolves conflict instead of starting them… THAT is your Alpha because he takes care of you.

    Jon is the man. I mean obviously immensely talented and all but also thoughtful and humble.

    It’d be nice if somebody somewhere along the line talk about toxic women. You know the kind that sleep around have really loose vejaysjays, and smell like a fish market. That kind of toxic femininity that says you got to be nice to women but then also tries to erase the definition of a woman. The type of woman that eats until she’s 700 lbs, and flatulates the air making it toxic. The type of woman that has four different kids from four different guys and the kids grow up to be horrible people. Let’s talk about toxic femininity. Because some of these chicks are straight up gross. How about you impale a baby while it’s still in your womb, a man’s baby by the way that’s pretty toxic don’t you think? murder?

    There are expressions of masculinity that are toxic, but the phrase is increasingly used by people to describe anything that is remotely traditionally masculine.
