MetaA whole bunch of brilliant posts that didn't make it to the sidebar (self.TheRedPill)
submitted 5 months ago * by [deleted]
So this sub has been gaining a lot of new subscribers lately so I reckon there's a bunch of newbies lurking about. While the sidebar is great and does a good job of providing you some of the basic groundwork that TRP works on, you might have missed some of the better posts if you only recently joined.
Here are the ones that really hit me the hardest that I saved when I was bingereading TRP material, as well as some recent ones.

Strong collection of posts. I've saved it, and if we decide to do a more comprehensive archive this will be a good start.
[–]FinickyFizz 2 points3 points4 points 5 months ago (1 child)
Can you put this on the side bar also.
[–]JakeRay 1 point2 points3 points 2 months ago (0 children)
Replying to top comment for awareness:
Is it just me, or does every link in this post show an "Internal Server Error (500)"?
If it's a useful post, I'd like to see the links updated.
[–][deleted] 11 points12 points13 points 5 months ago (0 children)
Thanks for doing this. Every one of these posts is pure gold.
[–]Endorsed Contributorleftajar 11 points12 points13 points 5 months ago (0 children)
Thanks for doing this, man. So much good content is lost to time.
[–]3kempff 6 points7 points8 points 5 months ago (0 children)
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
If I may wax meta for a moment without being clobbered for concern-trolling: With the influx of new participants the signal-to-noise ratio has suffered, but I believe this community can absorb and normalize the huddled masses.
It seems to me that focusing on and reminding the community of the basics is the way to go. And this post of yours is well on that way.
I raise my beer to you, sir.
[–]doubleecho88 5 points6 points7 points 5 months ago (0 children)
These need to be stickied, god damn.

How about sentence or two about each or at least the title of the post so people know which ones might be relevant to what they want to read about?

Here are some that I like:
6 Harsh Truths That Will Make You a Better Person
Copy/paste of an article on Cracked, and in my opinion one of the most important RedPill introductions: http://www.cracked.com/blog/6-harsh-truths-that-will-make-you-better-person/
This isn't a Disney movie. People want things, and they only care about you because of the value you provide. If you're depressed and you hate yourself, it's probably because you don't do anything. If you want to get girls, the first step is to become the type of man that girls want.
"Saying that you're a nice guy is like a restaurant whose only selling point is that the food doesn't make you sick."
She doesn't love you
She doesn't love you, she loves her attraction to you. She loves the tingles you give her. If you stop giving her tingles she will find it somewhere else.
Focus on you first. And second. And third. And...blah blah...Worry about women seventh
Hit the gym
Talk to everyone
Get hobbies; don't be boring
What happens when you drop a bunch of women on an island to fend for themselves?
Example from a Dutch version of Survivor. Men and women are put on separate islands. Men build shelter, hunt, and cook food. Each man does what is needed and what he is best suited for without having somebody tell him to do it. Women spend the whole time sunbathing, and nothing get done because there is never group consensus.
Tits or GTFO
"The only reason you post [that you are girl] is because you want your girl-advantage back, because you are too vapid and too stupid to do or say anything interesting without it."
[–]Adroxiom 5 points6 points7 points 5 months ago* (0 children)
I've never read that Cracked post before coming to TRP (last December). It is excellent though and should be read by ALL the BP whiteknights on Reddit now adays. Hell, even people starting out in corporations should read this and remember that their ability to perform well is the only reason they have a job and the only reason why they should keep a job.
[–]sourc3original 2 points3 points4 points 4 months ago (0 children)
She doesn't love you, she loves her attraction to you. She loves the tingles you give her. If you stop giving her tingles she will find it somewhere else.
Ok i've tried to not comment on your reply, but this is complete bullshit.
This is as much a generalisation as the "all men are pigs" which we all hate. There are women that can and will love you, and saying they are all alpha hungry and attention seeking sluts is just as bad as being a feminist SJW.
[–]1Modified_Hackware 13 points14 points15 points 5 months ago (2 children)
How about just reading them?
You could get through all of them inside 35 minutes. If people can't be arsed doing some self directed research then just go without the benefit.
This stuff shoudn't be "What you want to ready about" it should be, read all of this, internalise it, annotate what the OPs have put in and apply it individually to your circumstances. Not directing any rage at you personally but I get tired of people taking something that is effortless already and try to lower the bar even further.
OP has gone out his way for the community already - just fucking read it already.
[–]10J18R1A 5 points6 points7 points 5 months ago (0 children)
It's indicative of society and the trend towards laziness where clicking a link is too much trouble and anything more than two sentences is loltldreli5.
[–]jamieoneal82 0 points1 point2 points 5 months ago (0 children)
I've already read most of them, I just like having the quick reference, and having to click through all of them is annoying. Besides, OP already went back and added the titles, so why argue about it now except to be that guy?
[–][deleted] 5 months ago (1 child)
[–]Overkillengine 0 points1 point2 points 4 months ago (0 children)
Just wanted to concur the he and also /u/Whisper seem to have some real damn good posts. No pointless anger diluting the message.
[–][deleted] 1 point2 points3 points 5 months ago* (1 child)
good idea, will edit in titles
Cant give analysis on every post though, would make this thread too long
Saw that, thanks bro. Makes for a much nicer reference.
[–]HardPillToSwallow 3 points4 points5 points 5 months ago (0 children)
Thank you for posting this valuable collection. You owed us newbies nothing, and you gave us more tools and information, some may say it was insignificant but the information contained here has helped me.
[–]1TheReason13 2 points3 points4 points 5 months ago (0 children)
First class post Stuffdoer. My hat goes off to you.
[–]Ragu35 2 points3 points4 points 5 months ago (2 children)
Unless I missed it, a big one that's missing from the list is the 5 stages of Accepting TRP. Helped put a lot into perspective for me when I was still in the bitter/anger phase.
[–]3kempff 1 point2 points3 points 5 months ago (0 children)
Here ya go:
[–]moroi 1 point2 points3 points 5 months ago (8 children)
Thank you! This will come helpful.
In a few weeks I plan to start translating some of the most important pieces of theory into my language (czech) and having them put online. It is getting worse in regard of BP/RP ballance in Czech republic (although way not as bad as it is in US) and I would like to make a positive difference. Especially since TRP massively improved my live so far.

How do you say "hypergamy" in Italian?
[–]3kempff 1 point2 points3 points 5 months ago (4 children)
How do you say "Next!" in Czech?
[–]moroi 1 point2 points3 points 5 months ago (0 children)
...but since we often use simple English words, target demographic usually knows very well what "Next" mean. It will be tricky to translate made-up verbs like "nexting" or "hamstering" though.
[–]ferrum_cadmiae 0 points1 point2 points 5 months ago (2 children)
Zase! (Google Translate, YMMV.)
[–]moroi 0 points1 point2 points 5 months ago (1 child)
Nah, "Zase" is more "Again" than "Next" ;-)
[–]ferrum_cadmiae 1 point2 points3 points 5 months ago (0 children)
Oh. No. Not that. That's... that's not good. :)

Anyone know where those 1k came from?
There has been an increasing number of people posting the red pill amongst other areas. Links to it have been found in /r/sex /r/relationship and various other subreddits. I had found this place a long time ago, and didnt want to swallow the pill, I rejected it, but I found it again yesterday from one such link.
Its also possible that some lurkers were emboldened to begin participating recently for some reason or another.
[–]1 Endorsed Contributorvandaalen 0 points1 point2 points 5 months ago (2 children)
My guess is because we hit the top600, which was automatically announced in /r/all.
[–]YamahaR1der 3 points4 points5 points 5 months ago (0 children)
We actually just hit Top 400 - http://redditmetrics.com/r/TheRedPill

This is just the metaphorical backhand I needed to come to my senses. I remember reading a couple of these. Sometimes you just need to remind yourself that the world doesn't owe you shit.
Yeah, sometimes it feels like you're trying to push shit up a hill with a pointy stick, but nobody else is getting the handouts, they're just taking what they've got and working the absolute fuck out of it. That's why they're successful and you're not. Nothing lasting ever comes easy.
Being a beta is fucking easy. You don't have to face rejection, you don't have to deal approach anxiety, don't have to work out...the list goes on. What makes it even easier to be beta is the emergence of blogs and social media, where you can vent, complain and have a public circle jerk about being a pussy and not getting laid because that girl you've been trying to get with for months has three guys on lockdown and isn't looking for another.
The take home message I got from this post is "So what? That's the way it is. What are you going to do about it?"
EDIT: Which coincidentally enough is what my last pre red pill ex said to me before I emptied out the apartment of furniture.
[–]LS_D 2 points3 points4 points 4 months ago (1 child)
surely someone wants to give /u/StuffDoer one of these♂ for that great bunch of links
Thanks from all the new guys bro!

I think we should have a rolling (dynamic) hall of fame. A collection of the best posts, like this, but in a permanent location. Something everyone can always access. Cause this is a great post, I've seen many of these but all of them. Got some reading to do here, awesome!

[–]bvwilson58 0 points1 point2 points 4 months ago (0 children)
Thank you for posting this, it's a strong, excellent reminder.
I pulled this out of the "Men aren't happy post" and it really speaks to me:
"Work out, focus on your career, practice your social skills and get confident, develop useful skills and interesting hobbies – essentially, quit wasting time. Read non-fiction instead of fiction, watch less TV, play less video games, quit jerking off to porn, spend that time doing something that makes you physically, mentally, or socially better"
