First of all, nothing demonstrates a more catastrophic loss of frame than beating the shit out of a plate or LTR. If you suck so bad at overcoming a shit test that you have to resort to violence, YOUR GAME SUCKS and you have more reading to do.

To paraphrase The Art of War, if one finds themselves in a war that means they have messed up.

[–]HeinousFu_kery 13 points14 points  (12 children)

I'm also going to throw in that you should read "The Prince", by Niccolò Machiavelli. It's not about unscrupulous manipulation of people as most people (most of whom have never read it) assume.

There is a lot of wisdom about how to keep your head attached to your shoulders - an actual problem in the warring dynasties, religious empires and fiefdoms of the Renaissance - when you're in a position of power and responsibility.

Available free at Gutenberg (and many other sources)

Also thought-provoking and useful is The Art of Worldly Wisdom by Baltasar Gracián. Also available from many sources.

[–]Sadpanda596 9 points10 points  (9 children)

I just finished reading the Prince and some of his other works last month, wasn't too impressed tbh in terms of its applicability to the modern world. I mean maybe im a wimp but murdering your enemy and their entire families (to prevent them from rising against you in the future) just doesnt seem too applicable nowadays. Some stuff applies, but you're better off reading more modern books.

That being said, its a pretty good book to get under your wing for the purpose of just impressing people. Everyone's heard of Machiavelli, no one has read his shit though. Also, his name sounds fancy.

[–]HeinousFu_kery 1 point2 points  (0 children)

None of these should be taken as literal advice - raising an army to march through China wouldn't be very useful either, but Sun Tzu had more finesse and a more spare and oblique style which is easier to use as a touchstone than the wordier Machiavelli. Also consider the times in which they were written - the Borgias weren't notorious for their politeness after all and assassination and murder were constant threats. The principles are timeless though.

For example: Not spending all your money trying to impress people (then raising taxes which pisses everyone off) isn't bad advice for anyone or any government.

[–]the_number_2 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Don't take the book immediately at face value.

"the book is, first and foremost, a satire, so that many of the things we find in it which are morally absurd, specious, and contradictory, are there quite deliberately in order to ridicule ... the very notion of tyrannical rule"

There are suggestions that it was meant to be tongue-in-cheek, though it's so well written as to instruct a psychopath leader that I have to wonder if maybe Machiavelli wasn't even in on his own joke. Hard to say whether he meant it word-for-word, but it's more layered than it appears.

[–]Sadpanda596 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Think most historians generally dismiss those interpretations - the version I read had a contextual introductory forward that was about twice as long as the actual work.

Honestly by the standards of the day it really wasnt that brutal. It was just realistic of what is going on. Machiavelli's main ethical stance is essentially boiled down to: "look, people are competing for power. The people willing to do evil are always eventually going to come out ahead over those that tie their hands behind their back by being 'good.' Thus, unless good people are willing to get their hands dirty the entire world is going to be run by the shittiest people."

[–]the_number_2 1 point2 points  (0 children)

unless good people are willing to get their hands dirty the entire world is going to be run by the shittiest people

I like that interpretation better. Honestly, it's been some 10+ years since I've discussed the book. I added the bit above in hopes that people who haven't read it, but are reading this comment chain, at least understand there's more to take away than simply "The ends justify the means", which seems to be pretty much the only thing most people know about it.

[–]ContinentalRP 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's pretty much what's still the 'realist theory of international politics' is, which is the dominant/default strand. Look at John Bolton for a modern day Machiavelli (in his overt acknowledgment of power as the only real interest), he's highly intelligent, even though he might not seem so at first glance. I don't really agree with him though, I think he's throwing the baby out with the bathwater.

[–]EarnestMalware 0 points1 point  (2 children)

murdering your enemy and their entire families

Still clearly applicable. The most obvious area is in other competitive endeavors: business, sports, etc. It's one thing to beat a competitor in the latest round of product launches (murdering your enemy), but you would be in a much safer position if you ensure that your competitor is completely eliminated (murdering their family). Coaches lament not doing so all the time: "We left them in the game...weren't ruthless enough...had our boots to their throat but didn't finish"

[–]Sadpanda596 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Yea, I mean that is one way of looking at it. But given the context in the book thats really not what hes talking about. He meant you literally needed to end their line or they would eventually come back at you... no matter how much you beat them down, even if it was their descendents a hundred years later. His book was literally a how to manual specifically written for the early 16th century ruler of the florentine city state.

I'm not saying you can't take away stuff from it, its just not nearly as universally applicable compared to some other older books. I'd just recommend putting it pretty far down on the list of things to read if you're actually looking for things to apply in your life.

[–]southernfriedcode 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Are you being purposefully dense to make a point?

The analogy to modern life is quite easy to make. If you run a business, it's in your interest to destroy, buy-out, imitate your competitors before they become big enough to threaten you in the future.

The application is there, you just have to frame it properly.

[–]waynebradysworld 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The prince is in my desk right now. Not a very enjoyable read but insightful nonetheless.

[–]VoiceofKane 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It is important to remember, though, that The Prince is essentially a satirical work, and should not be taken wholly seriously.

[–]watoosh 2 points3 points  (6 children)

Dig it. Maybe I should finally give that a read.

[–]sir_wankalot_here 6 points7 points  (4 children)

As someone pointed out the 48 laws of power is nothing more then a westernized rewrite of the art of war. But the failure of the 48 laws of power is it looks at each separately. The Art of War has "wierd" statements like this.

There are not more than five musical notes, yet the combinations of these five give rise to more melodies than can ever be heard.

There are not more than five primary colors (blue, yellow, red, white, and black), yet in combination they produce more hues than can ever been seen.

There are not more than five cardinal tastes (sour, acrid, salt, sweet, bitter), yet combinations of them yield more flavors than can ever be tasted.

The Art of War was originally written on bamboo slats with 1 slat to a sentence. Sun Tzu has devoted 3 sentences to this idea. So he considers it to be important.

First thing I got is the obvious, that with by combining the laws in different ways you end up with different combinations. But then I remembered with harmonics, harmonics are sine waves. Depending on the timing, the sum of sine waves can be greater then the whole.

So then I thought about food. A small amount of spice intensifies the taste of the food. But if you combine different spices in a certain combinations the intensification will be greater then the whole.

We ofcourse have no idea what Sun Tzu really meant. That is my interpretation. And this is what differentiates the book from the 48 laws of power.

[–]jesuskater 1 point2 points  (2 children)

You cant take the stuff zun writes literally. Its all a message underneath

[–]Pornography_saves_li 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Sure you can. The book largely consists of simple examples that illustrate the complex message conveyed, and not reading literally actually impedes understanding. You must read literally, then extrapolate that literal reading into metaphor. When you can flip backand forth between these two approaches, to anything really, you can be said to understand that thing. But not until.

[–]jesuskater 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Just meditate about everything there

[–]enjoythesurface 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's a must read. It's one of those writings that applied to much more than its supposed target. Throughout reading it, you can see that much of the philosophy can be applied to much more than the battlefield.

[–][deleted] 174 points175 points  (89 children)

Exactly. Hitting PEOPLE in my opinion is ok when it is a self defense act. A woman can pepper spray a guy following her or grabbing her or whatever, a man (and a woman) should be able to hit whoever is trying to physically damage him.

There's nothing Red Pill about being a wife beater or beating your kid or your dog or whatever.

[–]Let_me_explain1733 151 points152 points  (46 children)

Funny story actually. I was once pepper sprayed by a woman because she thought I was following her. In her defense I was in fact walking about 10 feet behind her for about half a mile. Turns out we were actually going to the same place. I guess you could say things got awkward pretty quick once she realized this.

Edit: So the full story. It was like 12:30 am on a Saturday night and I had just left the bars headed to my friends appt to smoke and chill. I was pretty buzzed and listening to my iPod. After I got through the down town area and hit the residential area and notice there was a girl walking in front of me. Whatever, I just walked with my head down listening to pandora day dreaming. This girl kept making all the same turns I had to make so at one point I remember thinking "that's weird I hope she doesn't think I'm following her". Sure enough about 2 blocks away from my friends appt I wasn't paying attention and next thing I see is this girl like two feet in front of me. At first I thought I was going to bump into her but next thing I know she's spraying pepper spray at me.

She got most of it in my nose and mouth but my eyes burned and I fell to the ground. I think I yelled something along the lines of "what the fuck!?!". She ran off and I scrambled to the side of the house I was in front of and turned on the garden hose.

After about 10-15 mins of blasting my face with water, I managed to walk to my friends appt. I pretty much crashed through his door and yelled "Jesus dude, I just got pepper sprayed by some random crazy bitch!" There was no sounds for about 30 seconds and then I just hear my friend dieing of laughter. I looked up and after a few seconds I could see my friend but standing next to him was the very girl who pepper sprayed me.

Apparently she was headed to his place too, thought I was following her, pepper sprayed me, then ran to my friends place all hysterical and freaked out at him saying she just pepper sprayed some guy who was following her.

She instantly realized what she did the second I walked through the door and spent the next hour apologizing until my buddy gave me a ride home. She was absolutely nuts and I haven't seen her since.

    He raped her with his innocence.

    [–]thisjibberjabber 9 points10 points  (4 children)

    Great story.

    But... it's a good illustration of why you want to do something to avoid appearing threatening that way, if not for her sake then for yours. Either walk faster and pass her or go slower if that's not practical.

    I imagine you have realized this, but it could be useful for others.

    And as far as placing blame, yes, she probably should have had more evidence and/or given a warning before a preemptive strike, but if someone thinks they are really in danger then it's rational that they would use enough force to remove the threat.

    How much of her fear was rational and how much was drummed up by tumblr feminists is a whole other discussion.

    [–]DRMMR76 24 points25 points  (15 children)

    I am truly sorry. Having been pepper sprayed (three times), tased (three times as well), and hit with a beanbag shotgun round (once), getting sprayed is by far the worst. If you give me the choice between a taser and getting sprayed, I'll pick the taser every time. Pepper spray is hell in can.

    [–]Let_me_explain1733 57 points58 points  (7 children)

    I've been caught by the overspray when I had to hose a guy down with pepper spray, and it's not a pleasant experience. I had trouble breathing for nearly an hour afterwards.

    [–]MetacognitiveMan 1 point2 points  (3 children)

    Any idea how pepper spray compares to CS gas? I've been CS gassed a few times and everything in my sinuses came out and hung from my nose/mouth to the ground.

    [–]doveenigma13 7 points8 points  (0 children)

    Not even the same league. CS actually smells good compared to the evil that comes out of a pepper spray can.

    [–]rpkarma 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Pepper spray is by far the worst. The police in my area have a habit of using it first, and I used to have a habit of protesting a lot.

    [–]FermentedBacon 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Pepper Spray/Mace/OC is Satan giving you a dirty ass facial! It is by far the worst thing I have ever experienced.

    [–]idrivesmallcars 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    I've been maced and Lysol'd (long story)... I would say the Lysol topped the OC spray in maximum pain, but the spray definitely lasted way longer.

    [–]throwaway123454224t 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    This is an excellent story.

    [–]Zeleon 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    Seriously, it's pretty dangerous to get pepper sprayed, but you can also look at it from another angle. You now have a truely awesome story based on facts which your friend can confirm.

    [–]MightyTaint 30 points31 points  (28 children)

    A woman should be able to assault a man for being behind her and walking in the same direction? Bullshit.

    [–]SOAADDICT 17 points18 points  (25 children)

    Did he say walking behind? No. he said following. Then he clearly said men AND women should be able to hit people trying to physically damage them. You're reading comprehension should not be so thoroughly hundred by confirmation bias. Quit seeking out shit to distort into discriminashun, its the SJW game.

    [–]MightyTaint 7 points8 points  (21 children)

    TIL "following" someone is damaging them. Thank you for enlightening me, and my reading comprehension.

    [–]SOAADDICT -3 points-2 points  (8 children)

    He's lumped following in with grabbing and trying to physically damage. My point is your reaching for something to be offended about in someone's wording. You're being intentionally dense so you can have an outrage party, man. You know what he means. If you read the whole thing he obviously means stalking. Which, yeah, is harming to someone. But you're doing what SJWs do in plucking something out of context and looking for a way to make something straight forward into MUH OPPRESHUN!! If you have nothing better to do than nit pick people's wording to see where they may have somehow said something that offends you you might as well just join feminism.

    [–]whitey_sorkin 7 points8 points  (2 children)

    This sub and mensrights often go out of their way to be offended, exactly as feminists and sjw's do all the time.

    [–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Yes. This guy put words in my mouth just so he could be offended.

    Last year a woman called me a racist because I was allowing my Nigerian friend to call me his nigga. Like, why would I give a shit. We had to walk out or else he would have hit her.

    [–]SOAADDICT 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Exactly. And I like to call it when I see it, because we should be above that. And, frankly, we should have better things to do, like lifting and working on our minds, before we start getting offended by stupid shit like people's shirts.

    [–]MightyTaint 8 points9 points  (4 children)

    I'm actually bothered by how innocent things become villianized by lumping them together with horrible things, but thanks for telling me what I think!

    [–]SOAADDICT -1 points0 points  (3 children)

    That is VERY different from your initial comment. I think you're hamstering because you want to win what you see as an argument against me, rather than thinking about yourself and why his comment really offended you. I'm going to drop this and move on to remove that obstacle.

    [–]MightyTaint -2 points-1 points  (2 children)

    It exactly spells out how what the OP said was villifying an innocent action as something deserving assault. If you can't see that, that's your problem. Stop trying to convince me of what I was thinking. Guess what. I thought it. I don't need your input you ass.

    [–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

    From a dictionary:

    follow: to pursue closely and tenaciously.

    I think you are trolling because you are putting words in my mouth. But if you actually think I meant a woman can pepper spray a man just because he is walking behind her you are simply put a moron.

    That sort of attack is not unheard of for the SRS crowd.

    There was a screenshot going around Reddit during the violentacrez fiasco several years ago of an SRSter bragging that she got subs she didn't like banned by posting underage porn (with an alt) and then running to the admins.

    OP was right to do what he did.

    And now they will just say that this is a sub were men need to be told not to hit women, because they would not know otherwise.

    [–]2 MRedPillWatchTower[S] 12 points13 points  (3 children)

    To which I would reply, two posts does not a subreddit make. But when I see two posts in such a short timespan about the same WSHH video, I want to make sure to head off the "groupthink" phenomenon before one of those posts accidentally hits the front page from newbie upvoters.

    [–]redpilltom 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    You think they would acknowledge your reply if it didn't fit their narrative?

    [–]BluepillProfessor 28 points29 points  (3 children)

    Thanks for this mods. This is an on point response I gave on asktrp to the following question just today:

    is beating and giving your girl a black eye a red pill truth?

    Please. Is this a serious question? TRP guys don't hit women and give them black eyes. Dominance does not mean abuse. Just because I dominate my kids doesn't mean I smack the shit out of them.

    Hitting a woman does not make you "Alpha."

    TRP teaches stoic, masculine, strength.

    If you strike out in anger that is not stoic. Stoic is even tempered, rational and calm.

    If you injure a person weaker than you that is not masculine. Masculine men love feminine women and hurting them is pure weakness.

    If you lose emotional control so easily that is not strong. Strength is being able to remain calm in the face of emotional trauma.

    • Secondly, ANY TIME a post like this pops up, it is almost immediately ripped from this sub by SRS and other anti-TRP subs and pointed to as "TRP believes in beating women".

    I'm fairly certain these were attempts to vilify TRP by posting this kinda bullshit and hoping for supportive replies.

    [–]notsuremustthink 7 points8 points  (6 children)

    To be fair, if you have a lot of subs to resub, it's a pain in the ass. Let alone all the restrictions on posts from new posters.

    And no, I've never been banned from here, but I do make a new username at least one a year, once the old one starts containing too much identifying information or someone who's been on my computer sees it. I don't want to filter my opinion due to feeling non anonymous.

    [–]Idle_Redditing 4 points5 points  (1 child)

    Well, the "nigga" part came from the video itself.

    You need to say that in the text on this post so that the anti-trp bandwagon material doesn't have more material to say that this place is racist too.

    Im a juicer and I frequently beat my woman. Just throw a couple of beats and other celery into a juicer, throw in some apples and Ginger and you will have a healthy high nutriet juice. I recommend frequent beatings.

    [–]1Starswarm 9 points10 points  (9 children)

    As a juicer, how do you feel about beating your meat? I find that whenever I beat my meat, I tend to end up with with a thick, chunky, and viscous mess that's really not all that pleasant to drink.

    I can't deny its nutritional value, but I also can't help be repelled by it, like towards cottage cheese, and fage.

    [–]16 Endorsed ContributorGayLubeOil 6 points7 points  (7 children)

    I highly recomend beating your meat with a malot or rolling pin to tenderize it. Then rub your meat in a wet marinade or dry rub and let it sit overnight.

    [–]2 MRedPillWatchTower[S] 0 points1 point  (3 children)

    I tend to prefer wine-based marinades, particularly a wine flavor with a hint of pine nuts.

    On the real though try buttermilk onion garlic lemon zest and pepper as a chicken marinade

    Grilled, braised, baked, or microwaved? That actually sounds like a really good chicken marinade.

    If my voice isn't enough for her, I like to dish out the hits on her using my guitar or drum sticks for that lasting effect.

    Top 40's mostly; I use whatever is around and has the best beat.

    Of course you realise that the presence or absence of materials inciting violence has no bearing whatsoever on the mainstream feminazis portraying us as promoting violence against women.

    The mainstream media has been reporting over and over that PUAs promote violence against women even though this is a blatant lie.

    Reason 1 is good enough. Reason 2 simply doesn't matter.

    Dude there is no point in changing our behaviors for the SRS crowd. They've already made up their minds, that entire sub overthrere is preaching to the choir.

    Furthermore, how are you going to differential discussions involving hitting Women? Will you ban them if it contains the phrase, will you ban them if they saw a video applauding a Woman getting hit?

    If your banning strictly people who advocate hitting as a great solution, then I agree with you, sort of. I don't think ever is a reason to restrict free speech. But if you truly think that by curbing bitter speech will do wonders for TRP's image then I guess I'll have to tolerate it.

    I also would like to reiterate how appeasement does not work. It does not matter what the SRS crowd thinks of us. In fact, the shock value people talking about hitting people could incentivize SRS reads to check out TRP. Ya never know.

    [–]phillip42069 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Never would I unless I felt that threatened. I would just rather not surround myself with women that resorted to hitting me. But I would walk away before she even got to the point of wanting to hit me. If she can keep herself in control then the proverbial "next" applies. You shouldn't hit anyone unless it's a last resort. Walk away and laugh, it's never worth the stigma of being a woman beater. Hamsters run like cheetahs when it comes to this. They will do/say anything to be the victim. Weather it's true or not

    I dunno man, I'm in the kink scene and sometimes girls are all but literally asking to be smacked -- but this is only after it's been vetted as an enjoyable/playful experience for both parties.

    [–]2 MRedPillWatchTower[S] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    You're missing my point. I don't give a shit if your woman likes being smacked on the ass, gagged with a ball gag, and fucked harder than Stone Cold Steve Austin on steroids. That's all cool. What I'm talking about is Ray Rice'ing a bitch for acting out of character. You're a man. She's a woman, one step barely above "teenager" or "child". We don't beat children with a malicious intent. We discipline, we guide, we instruct, but we don't abuse them. Real men are far and away above the strength of a woman. We do not need to use physical violence to keep them in line. If you do, your frame blows, and your game blows.

    [–]hohamocha 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Something I have noticed is that women, especially feminist women, tend to go back to guys who have abused them. Sean Penn tied Madonna to a chair and beat her for three hours straight. After he broke up with her, Madonna still called him the love of her life. And Madonna is supposed to be a feminist icon.

    [–]Endorsed ContributorAFPJ 7 points8 points  (5 children)

    A woman's instinct is to fuck your head up, a man's instinct is to fuck your body up. You're not doing any favors by ignoring the nature of the sexes. Not saying it's right or acceptable, but (I think) one of the things RP stands for is not having the luxury of ignoring reality when it's inconvenient or doesn't align with your beliefs.

    The fact that modern society is a functional agreement of betas and omegas with actual Alphas either running billion dollar corporations or, for the most part, locked away in prison, doesn't excuse anyone from reality. Thinking we're "above" violence for whatever reason is delusional because no matter how much you hamster, the illusion of peace is and always will be maintained by the threat of violence for breaking social order.

    [–]2 MRedPillWatchTower[S] 1 point2 points  (4 children)

    I'm not talking about what sort of fantasies she wants to act out while she's strapped to your bed with a ball gag in her mouth. I'm talking about not dangling low-hanging fruit for the troll brigades to bring us unwanted attention. The signal to noise ratio is getting bad enough as it is.

    [–]Endorsed ContributorAFPJ 9 points10 points  (3 children)

    about not dangling low-hanging fruit for the troll brigades to bring us unwanted attention.

    Since when do "we" (you) care about what troll brigades or unwanted attention is directed at the sub?

    Catering to triflers is a quick slope to Political Correctness and the swift end of any meaningful discussion.

    [–]2 MRedPillWatchTower[S] 1 point2 points  (2 children)

    Because troll brigades bring more trolls, and more trolls mean more troll accounts, and more troll accounts mean more shitty posts. It's about keeping the signal to noise ratio at a manageable level.

    [–]Endorsed ContributorAFPJ 1 point2 points  (1 child)

    keeping the signal to noise ratio at a manageable level.

    I get what you're saying, but what's the point if the ratio comes at the price of the signal? I understand that mods are up to their neck in downvote brigades, shitposting and troll accounts, but I don't see how restricting discussion is a reasonable way to manage the aforementioned if one's goal is to "keep/expand RP", so to speak.

    The GamerGame shit was an exception because getting this sub outright banned would be bad, but this...?

    [–]BluepillProfessor 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Restricting discussion on criminal behavior that is contrary to the philosophy of this sub AND directly and powerfully attracts hordes of troll brigades and bullshit postings. How is that restriction not a reasonable way to manage? Should we talk about rape techniques along with the bitch slapping discussions? The line is drawn where it must be drawn.

    [–]Endorsed ContributorRedBigMan 4 points5 points  (12 children)

    While I will agree hitting YOUR woman means you fail as a man.

    However, when a random woman thinks she can walk up to a man and take a swing at him (lets say because he cut her off in the parking lot or whatever) because social convention dictates that men aren't allowed to hit women. Then said self-entitled cunt is owed a knuckle sandwich. I suppose it falls under self-defence, you never start it but you sure as shit finish it.

    [–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (2 children)

    Does this happen to you a lot? Random women walking up and assaulting you for no reason?

    I can't say it's ever happened to me. If it ever does I suppose I'll decide the appropriate level of force with which to retaliate at the time.

    [–]Endorsed ContributorRedBigMan 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Nope but I have to shop at big and tall places so generally women aren't going to start shit. Hell most men aren't going to start shit with me.

    That said I can see how short guys (by virtue of a generally lower status) might get such reactions. Just realize that as long as the video shows her starting it and you reply with an appropriate level of force you'll walk out of any courtroom a free man.

    [–]moiez326 0 points1 point  (7 children)

    i was thinking about this the other day. I'm known from time to time to say and do things that me in a pickle so to speak. Enough of a pickle to get slapped by a girl. What should I do, as a man who has swallowed the redpill, in a situation like that? I probably won't do anything in public cuz there will be 10 white knights to her rescue and kick my ass.

    [–]252life 4 points5 points  (2 children)

    Act like you didn't feel it, and mock her for acting like a child.

    [–]moiez326 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    fair enough. That's pretty much what I was going to do. It's ironic how women talk about equality and all that jazz but then think that it's ok somehow to slap men.

    [–]Fuzzlefluff 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    or pull out some martial arts and grab her hand mid-swing to block and just hold her back

    [–]Endorsed ContributorRedBigMan 0 points1 point  (3 children)

    Technically you should ensure that you are not in the path of the slap, nothing fails harder than a woman who misses entirely.

    Alternatively you could intercept her hand (likely by catching her wrist) and make a comment to the effect of 'You know committing assault is not very lady like' and let her go, that's plenty of warning and a compromise between knocking her the fuck out (which is what you should do if she starts throwing punches and kicks as opposed to a slap) and just letting her get away with whatever she wants to do.

    [–]moiez326 0 points1 point  (2 children)

    fair enough. I'd just want her to actually do the slap so everyone can see that she has lost the argument and has resorted to physical violence. But i guess people will still take her side cuz they'll think i am to blame of course and she is just hurt.

    if i grab her wrist, people will think i'm assaulting her now. If i laugh at her, people will think i'm i'm assaulting her by humiliating her in public especially if she starts crying.

    [–]Endorsed ContributorRedBigMan 0 points1 point  (1 child)

    You will always be treated as if you are assaulting her even if she's got a knife plunged into your chest. Don't give any free blows to your adversary whether man or woman

    This is oddly concerning about what other people think of this subreddit. Who gives a shit.

    Hitting a woman can be red pill if she's assaulting you. Defending yourself is red piil no matter who the aggressor is. Hitting someone, regardless of gender, because you can't control your shitty emotions is not redpill.

    [–]1kick6 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Secondly, ANY TIME a post like this pops up, it is almost immediately ripped from this sub by SRS and other anti-TRP subs and pointed to as "TRP believes in beating women".

    So we're back to censoring ourselves for their benefit? This is the exact type of thought policing that has generated the need for TRP in the first place.

    I'm not suggesting that this become /r/smashherface, but the minute we start allowing them to dictate the discussion in here...they've won.

    [–]socio_j 1 point2 points  (2 children)

    What happens when the women attacks first or is really provoking? Women use such strategies because they know they can get away with it. I agree that beating is bad, but a good slap to a women who deserves it does more good than harm. Think about that youtube video of a black (entitled) women who provoked and hit the dude. She deserved that hard slap. I´ll say it again, i do not believe in beating women.

    [–]teeelo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Same way you would treat an unruly child.

    Hold frame. Don't let them control the tone and movement of the interaction.

    Restrain them if you have to, hitting is a last resort.

    [–]BluepillProfessor 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    IF she is hitting you, as a legal matter you can use REASONABLE force to defend yourself. You can grab a woman's arms and make her stop hitting you, for example. You can push her down. You can put her in a wrist lock. You can run away. As a last resort you can even grab her shirt and get in her face and threaten to beat her ass if she doesn't quit.

    What you CAN'T do is punch her in the face like a "thuggish nigga." That is the law and that is the Red Pill. The dude in the video lucked out. He used exactly the amount of force (and no more) needed to stop an assault from a very fit female. The bitch was COMPLETELY out of control, repeatedly assaulted him, and knocked away his cell phone several times before he slapped her. He missed being charged by a hair. In a similar case Ray Rice thought he lucked out as well when the police didn't charge him, but as it turned out he was wrong.

    [–]16 Endorsed ContributorCyralea 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    On a purely pragmatic level, beating a woman is phenomenally stupid. It doesn't even matter if you were in the right, both society and the cops will not see it that way.

    The surest way to cut off your freedom (and likelihood of finding future gainful employment) is to beat a woman. It's better to swallow your pride and simply remove yourself from the situation before it explodes.

    [–]ATBlanchard 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    That last line just killed your credibility.

    [–]blameitonmoi 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    This post reads too much like one of those "it's never ok to hit a woman" bs that has become so popular in mainstream. If a woman tries to act tough and hits a man, she should expect to be hit back. Doesn't matter if he "lost frame". Losing frame doesn't give someone else a right to hit you unless you hit them first.

    This "it's never ok to hit a woman" campaign is what led to women thinking they are invincible and allowed to go around physically attacking men without consequence. Look at that recent subway attack video that went viral. She even had a whight knight trying to "protect" her when the guy dared to defend himself. Most of the time though, the guy won't even fight back because the women are somehow untouchable. See that video where Jay-Z is being attacked by Solange Knowles. She walked out without even as much as a public condemnation let alone criminal charges. Now imagine if the roles were reversed or if he fought back. And don't even give me the size differential excuse, because no smaller man would get the same pass.

    I didn't see the problematic posts in question, but the "never ok to hit a woman" is one of the ultimate pussy pedestals. I'll be disappointed if TRP goes in that direction.

    Because they are sad losers without lives that need to take things out of context and use spin artistry to try and attack things they are bigotedly intolerant of. Obviously saying "waaah waaah" makes them seem pathetic and won't get anything done, so instead they have to construct false narratives and strawman the sub to give their hatred an air of legitimacy. I believe we get a fair amount of shills. Just ban people who do shit like this, it's been heard of in the past where SRS subs "infiltrate" a sub and go to some extreme length to be accepted before spouting insanity to make the place look bad, effectively painting a bulls-eye on it. TRP mods probably are forced to be some of the most vigilant on Reddit. Everyone wants to witch hunt us because we shatter their fickle worldviews and put the needs of men before the needs of women. Oh, how unthinkable!

    Uh, nobody should be advocating violence against women because it's a bad idea that will land you in jail and make you a social pariah.

    But are we going to pretend now that women aren't attracted to violent--even abusive--men now because we don't like the implication?

    Because that's not very redpill to deny reality like that.

    This smells like more of the "alpha is only positive traits that I personally aspire to" bullshit that's infested the sub lately.

    [–]Endorsed ContributortrpSenator 0 points1 point  (10 children)

    One thing I VEHEMENTLY disagree with within the manosphere is the whole concept of, "If she hits first, then she better expect to get hit back hard."

    I just don't agree. You should only hit a woman back ONLY if you literally have no other option. But if she just sucker punches you, there is no need to hit her. Calm your fucking tits. It's like me hitting a 12 year old boy for punching me in the stomach. Sure, I "can" hit him, and if he was 18 I'd hit him back, but the reality is, I don't NEED to hit him to defend myself. I can handle the situation just fine without fighting.

    The same is true with women. Are they going crazy? Walk away. Physically restrain her -- whatever.

    [–]KingJohnTX 6 points7 points  (0 children)

    Honestly, fuck that shit. Women hitting men and then receiving no retaliation physical or otherwise is the main reason its seen as ok, if a few more men defended themselves instead of just "walking away" it wouldn't happen as often as it does.

    [–]TenserTensor 3 points4 points  (4 children)

    So you walk away. The next time you see her she does the same. Do you continue to walk away every single time?

    [–]Endorsed ContributortrpSenator 1 point2 points  (3 children)

    Is she fucking hitting you every single time? If she is, you have a much bigger issue here of a chick who thinks it's okay to hit you... For some reason you're a bitch, and are likely surrounding yourself around really shitty people to begin with.

    [–]TenserTensor 7 points8 points  (2 children)

    Yeah, sure. But the point still stands; will you walk away every single time a girl hits you?. There's no words that can redress something like that. Walking away is just reinforcing it's ok hitting you; there's no consequences whatsoever, so why should she stop (hitting you or anyone else).

    [–]Endorsed ContributortrpSenator 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    You can cause consequences without hitting her back. There are a huge number of other possibilities. I mean, when a child hits you, you punish them, but you never actually hit them back.

    [–]1Jaereth 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    I don't know your situation, but if some bitch hit me i'd walk away. For good. There would be no next time.

    [–]2 MRedPillWatchTower[S] 3 points4 points  (1 child)

    I knew a veteran would see eye to eye with me on this. We have a post in the sidebar about "women are the oldest teenagers in the room". How we routinely should treat them like children in order to understand their motivations, help guide their desires, and be the immovable rock that her waves of emotions can crash upon. If she's lashing out at you physically, you should restrain her much the same way you'd restrain an unruly child. I don't care how many people don't like it, I'm holding ground on this issue.

    [–]Endorsed ContributortrpSenator 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    I agree with you. I've only been attacked by a female twice in my adult life, and not once did I feel like physically retaliating. The first, I got slapped, I was drunk, and just yelled at her and told her to get the fuck out and never even think of talking to me again.

    The second I just held frame, held her hands down, and told her to go the fuck to bed.

    [–]RedPill115 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    One thing I VEHEMENTLY disagree with within the manosphere is the whole concept of, "If she hits first, then she better expect to get hit back hard."

    Just don't agree with you from personal experience.

    When I grew up my parents would fight, but somehow I always knew that crossing the line into physical violence in the argument between them was unnacceptable.

    I later found out that when they moved to the city where I grew up, one day they were in a hardware store and for some reason my mother slapped my father. He turned and faced her, and hit her in the shoulder very hard. She went flying halfway down the isle, landed on her butt, and got up looking embarrassed - and never, ever hit him or tried to hit him again.

    Now if you want to argue that you should drop like a radioactive rock any women who tries to be violent against you, but not hit them back unless you have to, I can respect that opinion.

    But there is no way you should be in a relationship where she's allowed to be violent against you (or you against her of course).

    I've never hit a woman in my entire life. But that is realistically partly because my parents never hit each other either. I had a girlfriend who, long story short, our relationship had reached way past when it should have ended, and she was trying to hit my emotional buttons to get me to hit her. (It shocked me, I didn't even think it was possible for a woman to do that). I didn't hit her though - I left. But had my parents actually been violent towards each other when I was a kid, things might not have gone that way.

    I have dated some emotional and passionate women, and have never had violence in any romantic or sexual relationship ever. But sometimes I suspect that was exactly because the women knew that I would never put up with it, so no girl ever went there.

    [–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Physically restrain her

    Not a good idea in case she decides to speed dial the cops and show them bruises on her wrists. Because of the severe legal disadvantage a man has vs. a woman, a woman who gets violent should be left immediately.
