The Asshole
Why women are so entranced by "The Handmaid's Tale"
Published 05/29/17 by Archwinger [0 Comments]

“The Handmaid’s Tale” is a novel, written in the mid-1980s by a female Canadian author of moderate renown. It's a popular book in hardcore womens' studies programs, but not too well-known elsewhere. It is a dystopian work that paints a dark picture of America’s future. The Radical Right launches a terrorist attack and assassinates the United States’ leaders, takes the country over, and rules tyrannically. Women are stripped of all rights. Everything goes to hell, and due to all of the pollution, most people become infertile. The last few fertile women that are left get stolen away by the wealthy elite governmental officials and become “handmaids”, who have forced sex every month at the right point in their ovulatory cycle, so that the wealthy elite can have kids. There’s no love, no respect – they’re barely people – and they exist solely for procreation and sexual release. Monthly rape by the men who have power over them.

Like most works of literature, this book and its author were pretty much completely unknown to most Western women, who don’t give a flying fuck about books or literary concepts unless they see them on a screen, until earlier this year, when a TV series based on this book premiered. As we all know, nobody in the TV or movie business actually generates creative content any more. Everything that comes out nowadays is a sequel, prequel, remake, based on a book, based on a true story, and so on. And somebody decided to cash in on this book, so here we are.

So this year, the literary concepts presented in a dystopian book written in 1985 have suddenly entered the consciousness of American women, as though these old and tired topics explored in countless books (dystopia was especially popular in the 80s) are somehow fresh and new. And for many of these women, who have never read or thought beyond their cellular telephones, these thoughts are indeed new.

Many women viewing this TV show are completely immersed, enraptured in the tale. They feel so connected to the story of a sub-human sex toy, as though it speaks to them directly. Most women glibly pass this feeling off as modern social commentary on Donald Trump. After all, he’s an asshole and a misogynist and the country elected him, and this cool TV series is clearly what Donald Trump wants to do to all women everywhere, so that must be why they’re feeling this way about this TV show, right?

I submit, however, that the feelings these women are having have nothing to do with being oppressed by the evil Donald Trump. Women don’t feel this strong of a connection to television show over the fact that the government is run by rich assholes (which has definitely never happened before). No, this connection comes from the feelings they have about the people that are close to them. Not the president. These women feel this way because deep down inside, they feel oppressed by their husbands, their boyfriends past and present, and by the men in their lives that they know, closely and personally.

We constantly explore the plight of men, here at The Red Pill, while often completely overlooking the plight of women. It’s easy to forget that when the large majority of men suck, the large majority of women are unhappy. If you think it’s tough being a shitty loser man in a low-sex marriage, imagine being his wife and having to fuck him every month. Having to muster up the willpower to, essentially, let a man that you don’t want to fuck – that every fiber in your body is screaming at you to run away from – rape you, because you don’t want to break apart your family or lose your stability.

Many wives and girlfriends, simply put, do not want to fuck their loser men. But the alternative is worse. Breaking families apart, losing financial stability and all of the labor their men provide, turning their lives upside down – these women essentially feel like their lives are being held at gunpoint. They don’t want to have sex, but the men in their lives have power over them, and because these men have power over them, they allow these men to rape them. They don’t love their men – at least not in a sexual way – and are simply allowing themselves to be used for sexual release by someone who has power over them.

Women who are married to or involved with loser men feel like handmaids, from the TV show. No respect, no love, just monthly rapes because the alternative is worse. And this is why The Handmaids Tale speaks to so many women.

Like most fictional novels, The Handmaid’s Tale caters to its audience. Not too long into the book, the evil oppressor man who owns the female protagonist starts to become interested in her for more than just her handmaid duties. And, of course, there’s another man that she eagerly wants to fuck in between forced fuckings, who loves her back because, as we all know from Twilight, 50 Shades of Grey, and other such books, men always fall left and right an average woman for absolutely no reason whatsoever simply because there’s something so darn indescribably special about her. The book quickly turns from its dystopian commentary about America’s dark future into a tale of this woman’s hopes, dreams, and attempts to escape to a better life with a better man – directly speaking to its target audience of unhappy wives.

Remember, the majority of men are losers. Well, not really. They’re average guys. But in the eyes of women, that makes them losers. Most women are not happy with most men. They’re just whoring themselves out for money, labor, and stability. Meanwhile, they dream of an escape to a better life with a better man. And over time, these feelings take a toll. The Handmaid’s Tale speaks to modern women because modern women literally feel oppressed by their men. On some level, deep down inside, they feel powerless, used, and raped by the men who love them. It’s seriously messed up.

You are their salvation. No woman has ever met a man like you. You can make a woman feel special. Alive. Sexy. You can be the hero in her story, simply by not being a loser. By engaging her emotions. By making her feel.

Don’t try to be her stability. She doesn’t need another loving, stable man to whore herself to while feeling unfairly oppressed by all the good things he provides. She needs a man who can help her escape. Who can make her feel like just for a few hours, she can forget it all with you.
