Grow Up, Hugo

Vox Day has tagged Hugo Schwyzer as a gamma: “a female-oriented mind in a male body”. The only thing I’d add to that is he’s a runaway hedonist who refuses to come to terms with his responsibilities. Last week, he reportedly attempted suicide, although I tend to think he’s just trying to get people to feel sorry for him.

I know someone who attempted suicide in the manner that he supposedly did. She was in no position to talk to anyone for MONTHS. For Hugo to be lucid enough to give interviews–a mere couple DAYS after this “attempt” tells me this whole thing is BS.

He was visiting his mother in the Monterey area, where he grew up, when it happened about 10 p.m., he said. He was placed on a 72-hour psychiatric hold at Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula, the professor said:

“I took an entire bottle of Klonapin,” he said. That’s a muscle relaxant and anti-anxiety drug.

Schwyzer said he’s physically OK but reiterated how the social media fallout from a sexting relationship with a sometime porn star and multiple affairs with women made his marriage “over” and sunk him into a deep depression.

Hugo, the issue isn’t your affairs or your obsession with porn or your attempted murder-suicide 15 years ago or even your most recent “sexting” scandal. You’ve lived the life of a runaway hedonist; your pre-marital life was one of hedonism; heck, your academic career was a celebration of hedonism with a quasi-feminist veneer.

Did you think marriage would allow you to just turn that switch off?

Did you think that by embracing a covenant that is rooted in God’s natural law–even as you thumbed your nose at all things Christian–you were going to continue to have your cake and eat it too?

I don’t celebrate your demise; in fact, I shake my head at you. Rather than take ownership of your baggage, it seems that you’ve spent your entire academic life trying to deny the hurt you’ve caused, and self-atone for what you know are serious moral wrongs.

The sooner you accept responsibility for your actions–yes, that means man up–the sooner you’ll find your sanity.

But the longer you scoff at the very Cross that can save you, the more you keep digging your own grave.

As a libertarian, I’m all for you deciding what you want to do with your life. Choose wisely.

  1. That is one really nice hospital. I’ve been there. They had lots of rich people die there and leave their estates so it is very well funded. If you must be sick, or have elective surgery of any sort, spring a few extra thousand for a plane ticket and go there.

  2. So he faked a suicide attempt, got a day or two in a really posh hospital–all probably paid for by his health insurance plan at the college–and then gives self-serving interviews.

    Nice work if you can get it. LOL
