This is the very first sentence on a list of the Red Pill's "fundamental beliefs" taken off one of their very active websites:
"Feminists claim they want equality but what they really want is power without responsibility."
Weird ... a brief summary for a movement supposedly centered on the discussion of sexual strategy in a “culture increasingly lacking a positive identity for men” that doesn't make a single mentioned about men?
"Women are irrational and inconsistent."
...A logical woman is easily baited into becoming emotional; women are easy to compromise."
"Women are Machiavellian in nature, which means they are comparatively proficient at being manipulative."
"Women love pragmatically and have no capacity to love unconditionally for romantic partners."
…Extremely contradictory and sexist as fuck, but more importantly, none of those principles have anything to do with men. Not a single mention on the joys of fatherhood, ways to maximize being a ‘better person’ to the best of your ability, or anything of that sort.
Right from the get-go, it’s just a bunch of variations of "fuck dem bitches" and "right, right? amiright!?" To me, it doesn’t sound like an ideology. More like a group of people feeling bad for themselves and supporting others with similar mindsets in directing their bitterness/hatred anywhere but on themselves.
Which is exactly how a hate group works.
The scene from the Matrix, which is commonly associated with one being given the choice between the red-pill and the blue-pill, was originally intended to be a metaphor for the Buddha receiving enlightenment. No longer being bound by worldly concerns, of which the interpretation for red-pill-hopefuls obviously means “the recognition and awareness of the way that feminism, feminists and their white-knight enablers affect society.”
What a neat rhetorical trick, eh? Claiming the identity of not only a persecuted minority (cisgendered, hetero male) while also proclaiming themselves inherently superior to the “blue-pillers” (those loving in the illusion of blissful ignorance), white knights and “betas” because they see the truth- that they’re supposed to treat women like shit and will reach happiness only through this.
You can’t blame these men for feeling marginalized, seeing as how fear and defensiveness are both part of the typical reaction of someone who has very little empathetic ability or intelligence/social competence. They don’t know what being marginalized (ie. being the sex associated with leadership and knowing what's going on by default, to name a few) actually feels like, so the first few times that they’re faced with the realization of how getting what they want out of life may sometimes be difficult, they devise an oppressive enemy. Feminism. The enemy that’s that’s holding them back and forcing them to rally the troops because there’s always more power in numbers.
Without ever stopping to consider that maybe its they who need to change.
So why does TRP work so well for some?
Because it's a placebo. It manages to hammer the idea of how having no respect for women is the ultimate remedy into the heads of those who have experienced the brutality of romantic rejection (…which 99% of people around the world have, but I digress) with brutal efficiency. All of these disturbingly popular and active forums are designed to trick you into thinking that misogyny is the rational outlook.
So that you’ll no longer feel intimidated by women. Which is a quick and easy thing to do by convincing yourself that women are no better than filth on your shoes and their opinion has zero significance anyway.
TRP is essentially nothing more than a trick. A trick that, for a lot of men, apparently works, though like with most ideologies, comes with the unfortunate baggage of leaving the affected red-piller with a warped view of the real-world.
In the end- sure, it might get you laid. At the cost of making you meaner, uglier, and much more stupid.
Women should be viewed not as individuals but as naive, simple-minded creatures who inconveniently just happen to be holding the one thing they need them for- sex- at arm’s length.
A favourite pastime of red-pillers is to scheme on how to raise their sexual market value, seemingly so that, if they succeed, they’ll be able to laugh at the ill-fated women who may use sex for empowerment, but actually just stumble into the trap they set.
Here are some of the more obvious inconsistencies in true ‘red-pill logic. A brief look at a red-pillers train of thought:
- Woman can and do control men through being the ‘gatekeepers to sex’
-Red-pillers dream of wanting to fuck the hottest women, yet these women are also the ones who are ‘complete sluts’ with zero self-respect, or passengers on the cock carousel.
-Decry women for “keeping men on the hook” while at the same time insisting that only betas settle down and alphas have harems with multiple women at their calling.
-Women are manipulative and Machiavellian (ironically enough, meaning that you believe in the employment of cunning and duplicity in general conduct), forever plotting to fuck alphas and use betas but are also incapable of logic or rational thinking and instead rely on the “rationalization hamster” in order to settle cognitive dissonance.
-They want to fuck hot women and then turn around and shame the same women for fucking them. Women manipulate men, but men should apply dread game to get laid.
Yeah. Exactly. I’m just as confused by that logic, or lack-thereof. It sounds a lot more like a bad case of word-salad than something that resembles any reasonable train of thought.
In summary- The Red Pill is basically a bunch of men huddling together and complaining about how women are by nature incompetent and should not be trusted with any responsibility or authority.
