The cartoon vampire thing makes it hard to take this seriously.
Another thing that makes it very hard to take seriously is that the analysis has all the depth of a mud puddle.
Look, I get it, okay? These women are super shallow and unaware that they are the authors of their own misery. Everyone gets it. Agoraphobic recluses get it. Kalahari bushmen get it.
So, it's super easy to dunk on them.
But what's not happening here is any sort of analysis.
It's all just "hah, hah, hah, these women dated Bad Boys(tm) in their twenties and now they are lonely" with a strong undercurrent of "Kristi should have dated ME in high school! I was a Nice Guy, unlike that bastard Chad who cheated on her with Cindy! (who also should have dated me instead)."
Schadenfreude may be fun if your childhood was sexless, but it doesn't really go anywhere.
There's no analysis of why these women behave this way. Women didn't suddenly become more shallow and narcissistic in the 1970s onwards. If they are behaving differently, it's because something changed to influence them.Read More
Whenever I see change that moves in one direction, instead of running in cycles, I always suspect technology (accumulated knowledge). Because people themselves are always pretty much the same, just with better tools.
Most RedPill pundits are super experts on all their theories about what the effects of feminism are, but they never think about the causes of feminism. That's because they want to blame things on feminism... so they have to see feminism as a cause only, never as an effect.
According to these guys, everything was fine for thousands of years until one day, women just decided, collectively to ruin everything.
And according to feminists, all of history was a concentration camp and torture chamber for women, who just sat there and took it for thousands of years until their stunning and brave generation decided to stand up and write a bunch of articles about manspreading.
Both of these views are complete fucking stupid.
Something caused feminism.Read More
This is a good question, but it comes from a place of fundamental misunderstanding of what the "red pill" is.
The red pill is descriptive, not prescriptive. It's not a movement with goals to change the world into what we think it "should" be. Instead, it seeks to describe the world as it is, with special emphasis on the parts that are wired into the human race and don't change.
Thus, when it "advocates" something, that is not a ideal for achieving the perfect society. It is only a course of action for an individual to take. Under this way of looking at things, men's and women's optimal lifestyles may by all means be incompatible.
There's no logical contradiction at all in the idea that our goals might diverge five minutes after we have sex... your best outcome might be me proposing marriage, while my best outcome might be a beeline for the door.
How much room there might be for compromise depends not only on who you and I are as individuals, but also on what sort of society we live in, and what context that creates for our relationship.
Many people believe that the role of tradhusband is ideal for men, but that is historically not the case. If the baby boomer men had been happy on every stage of that life path, they would not have enthusiastically succumbed to feminist demands to kick the whole thing over and burn it down, in exchange for nothing but the largely unfulfilled promise of some unshaved free-love yeti snatch.
In other words, Upside Down Clown World is not the assassin that murder Tradconism, it is merely the vulture that is feasting on its corpse. Tradconism collapsed of its own weight, due to inability to adapt to changing economic and technological conditions.Read More
Prostitutes serve multiple purposes.
Some men pay prostitutes to have sex with them at all.
Some men pay prostitutes to have sex with them without having to be gamed first.
Some men pay prostitutes to have sex with them and focus on their pleasure without wanting reciprocation.
Some men pay prostitutes to have sex with them without demanding emotional investment.
Some men pay prostitutes to have sex with them without demanding commitment.
Some men pay prostitutes to have sex with them and then go away without wanting access to their wealth.
Above a certain level of wealth, it makes no sense to game women at all unless you are looking for a girlfriend. Some men are so rich that the price of a high-end prostitute is less than the cost of the time they would have to spend chatting someone up.Read More
The most valuable thing you can learn by looking at the process communication of reddit and twitter is an understanding of just how much the format influences the message.
Twitter was always terrible, and lends itself to pointless arguments. So much so that trp.red/feed, having imitated the way twitter works, also generates the same flavour of pointless argument.
Reddit, however, lent itself to more substantive discussion, because long conversations between people tended to isolate themselves even when they were technically public.
And trp.red's reddit clone has been overshadowed by its twitter clone, hence all the pointless arguments.
Musk isn't going to be able to fix twitter, because twitter is broken by its basic design. Reddit is not. Its fundamental layout is basically sound, which is why it took so many years of management that was both incompetent and malicious to eventually drain all the value out.
Musk should have bought Reddit instead.Read More
