Welcome to TRP. Enjoy your stay. Keep an open mind. If/when you go through the anger phase, try not to post too much.

Read the sidebar. There's a ton of useful info.

[–]BluepillProfessor 61 points62 points  (14 children)

when you go through the anger phase, try not to post too much.

The dynamic on TRP with the imbalance of "anger phase" guys posting is similar to the dynamic in /r/deadbedrooms with the women seemingly having numerically similar problems with getting laid. It is because a LOT more women post than men overall. So even though it is 10:1 men suffering from lack of sex, on the sub it appears the problem is apportioned equally.

We have a LOT of guys in the anger phase post and it gives a very wrong impression about the vast majority of men on this sub.

[–]HalfysReddit 54 points55 points  (3 children)

I think part of the reason as well is that a lot of dudes stop being active on TRP once they've learned what they needed to learn from it. At least I did.

[–]mickydonavan417 12 points13 points  (0 children)

also life circumstances change. In my case, I moved to a new place, and got a job, and I'm seeing a woman 9 years younger than me, and flirting regularly with 2-3 women of various ages and levels of attraction. Also working on social interactions outside of work.

[–]EmbeddedAssets 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah learning all this is pretty simple really. The hard part is actually doing it and getting through the anger phase, resisting to post based on your angry emotions. It's good emotional control practice to not post based on emotions.

Mostly, I stopped posting because I got bored of reading the anger posts again and again and thought I could do better by focusing even more on becoming a high frequency flash douchebag. If anything, the jist of the Red Pill is that absolutely nothing is exempt from market forces, not your pussy job at Google, not your 'love' with your girlfriend, not even your attraction to what you think is a 9 now, but is a 7 once you meet more attractive women. At first, the anger posts get you fired up and even more angry, but time passes and you start accepting reality for what it is.

[–]Gnashtaru -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I learned here and elsewhere that I'm just sick of the game and its not worth my time anymore. (Two divorces aged 36) so I just enjoy lurking and reading things like this thread and general success stories. There's a ton of truth in this sub. I just don't care about getting a woman anymore lol.

[–]bitches_be_crazy86 4 points5 points  (8 children)

ue with these posts. working out is for everybody, being a better person and advancing your education and job is for everybody and I wouldn't expect and guy to date multiple women so I think expecting the opposite is fair. I don't think this sub is extremely hateful, I think that you guys and are tired of being treated as the bad guy simply because your a guy and have decided to say fuck it and focus on you instead of everybody else and that is fantastic. I love reading these posts and learning things and feeling like these posts are actually using logic and not that the guy should ALWAYS be at fault. That's crap and while guys are wrong sometimes it's bs that they are always the bad guy. So for what it's worth I think I will stay on this sub because I like it and screw what other people think because this sub is more benficial then subs

well anger phase isn't ideal, but it's still better than being a beta good guy who: A) wants to get laid just like everyone B) fails horribly because beta and can't get laid C) envies those who are successful with women D) hates assertive men

Pedestalising women and blaming those who get laid means they can't learn from them how to be assertive and successful. In anger phase the blame shifts from the so called jerks to women and you can use your brain to add 1+1, make some connections and figure things out.

[–]dodgesbullets 0 points1 point  (0 children)

/r/atheism has the same phase issue as well I've found.

[–]rztzz 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Pretty sure OP is a girl, but maybe girls can go through anger phase as well.

[–]rymdsylt 2 points3 points  (6 children)

talking about the anger phase, is there any literature on how to easier get through it? I'm having a hard time not being angry at women for acting like they do.

I usually don't have any issue swallowing pills, but this one seem to have got stuck in my throat :/

[–]beerthroway 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Anger is a natural stage in a traumatic event (or grief, in this case, the loss of what you thought you were working towards or hoping for).

  1. Denial
  2. Anger
  3. Bargaining
  4. Depression
  5. Acceptance

Move towards accepting the things you cannot change. Acceptance isn't something anyone can teach you. You just have to come to terms and feel okay with it. You are the only one who can control your feelings.

On the other hand, keep reading. There are plenty of books that work on self improvement more than women. Book of pook is what I'm currently on and I'd say 80% is self improvement. Awesome read.

[–]mstryff 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Upvote for Book of Pook. Look up Anti-dump's series of posts online as well. Old stuff but still great.

[–]yumyumgivemesome 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Women are the way they are. Although the game of life is stacked in their favor during their younger years (so long as they're thin and pretty), we men still hold most of the power.

I don't hate modern feminists for trying to take some of that power. Of course, I dislike it when they cross the line and vilify us men. They have a long road ahead, and their path essentially only knocks out the weaker men, thereby decimating my competition.

In the meantime, continued learning and bettering ourselves only makes us stronger -- and it matters very little how long it takes us to achieve that excellence. For example, young women sploosh over George Clooney just as much as older women do.

Taking the red pill is an exhilarating endeavor. If it wasn't scary, it wouldn't be fun.

[–]KissTheBridesmaid 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Start seeing women as children and your anger will start to fade.

[–]flippingtreasures 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Woman here, I would be happy to hear your complaints.

[–]thegr8b8m8 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Righteous anger at injustice is valid and important in righting wrongs. Bitter anger that eats away your soul is bad is what you want to avoid. One thing that has helped me is realizing the truth that women often act like children. I would not get bitter towards a child that was manipulating me. I would see what the child was doing and proceed accordingly. Viewing things through this analogy seems to diffuse my anger.

[–]WardlyHasted 85 points86 points  (47 children)

Generally when people say TRP is full of "misogynist, neckbeard, virgin, losers" it's because that's what everyone else on reddit tells them. They see bastardized summaries of this subreddit in random threads and adopt the belief for them self.

However, when people like me -- who become curious about TRP after seeing it mentioned everywhere (I once saw it mentioned in the same breath as child porn and necrophilia porn) -- decide to check it out one day, it's amazing what happens... most of the shit on here actually makes sense! It's not anything like the rest of reddit says it is! And it especially makes sense when you can draw parallels between TRP theories and actual events from your life. This is what leads to "unplugging".

But welcome to TRP.

Read the sidebar and start improving your life.

[–]seddition 30 points31 points  (14 children)

I think if people saw who was behind these screen names they would be shocked. I'm betting there are a lot of fit, successful, attractive dudes on here who started questioning why despite being a 10 on paper they still got shit on. It's easier to demonize everyone as being a fat, "neckbeard", loser misogynist because then you don't have to actually address the core of what is being taught. The problem is, no one here is willing to show who they really are, nor should they be, because the SJW and XX crowd will dox the shit out of you and try to ruin your life.

I do fine with women, I'm happy, I'm good looking by most standards, and I've never had a problem finding casual sex or getting long term relationships. I still enjoy reading what's here and I learn from it, and I'm in no way the loser they try to portray the average poster here as. I'm willing to bet a large portion of you guys aren't either.

That being said, there is no point in trying to dissuade the lost causes from their misguided opinions. They aren't ever going to be our allies or accept the ideas here, so why bother with them. Let them have their circle jerks about how terrible we are and we'll keep getting better on our own.

[–]HalfysReddit 25 points26 points  (4 children)

I think they describe us as fat neckbeard misogynists because that's about the most disgusting (to them) male image they can think of. I'm pretty sure they'd hate to see the success stories of people in here, because that means that at least something here isn't bullshit and even that much they don't want to acknowledge.

[–]CornyHoosier 16 points17 points  (1 child)

they describe us as fat neckbeard misogynists

Which is, ironically, exactly TRP tries to teach men here to stop being.

I can say that I personally have became less hateful towards women after I started studying a lot of the information listed in this sub-reddit. I started acting and looking the way I wanted and I no longer was blaming women for my lack of success with them.

I can say with all honesty, that since learning about this sub-reddit my mental and physical health have both grown.

[–]HalfysReddit 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Oh definitely agree. I have much healthier relationships with women now then I used to. My mental and physical health are both shit but that's a product of my laziness and complacency.

[–]Ronin11A 22 points23 points  (0 children)

They describe us as fat neckbeards because it's an easy disqualifier for everything we say and our very existence.

If they admit that decent-looking, well-educated, in-shape men are turning to TRP, then they would be forced admit that "just being yourself" isn't enough, and that our theories have credibility and precedent.

[–]teeelo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I've been known to reply to the haters with a link to /r/thanktrp.

They don't like that very much.

[–]Endorsed Contributorcocaine_face 11 points12 points  (6 children)

I have a friend/employee that described the Redpill as, "permavirgin neckbeards" when I mentioned I wanted to make a product aimed at this demographic.

The friend/employee in question is incredibly bad with women, as an FYI.

[–]SwissPablo 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Which explains why he's trying really hard to bash the competition - it's the tactic of the person who has nothing to offer.

[–]RPthrowaway123 1 point2 points  (4 children)

What sort of product? I'm curious, if you're able to share.

[–]Endorsed Contributorcocaine_face 2 points3 points  (3 children)

You'll find out soon enough.

[–]RPthrowaway123 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Oh now that's tantalizing...not even a hint?!

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

This idea is still new and I'm still fleshing it out, so I don't want to say anything yet. It's going to be more of a, "Is there a market for this community?" type product. If there is, I'll make more products.

[–]RPthrowaway123 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Awesome I'll be keeping an eye out for it

[–]dawg826 5 points6 points  (1 child)

I would wager that most fat virgin neckbeard types would have a seriously tough time swallowing the pill. They have their shitty identity to fall back on, and a massive inertia of inaction in general that will prevent them from looking seriously at their life situation and lack of success with women. Average guys who do well enough to see inconsistencies in the social narrative however will get it and push forward.

[–]metalhead4 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You can't help the ones who can't help themselves. Mom! More hotpockets!

[–]IronBallsOfKnowledge 3 points4 points  (2 children)

when you can draw parallels between TRP theories and actual events from your life.

Exactly. Do they think damn near 100k people are in here if it didn't make sense? If it was all wrong, and what we learned here didn't work, why would we still participate in this sub? That'd be like going on a diet but not losing any weight, and still sticking with that diet.

Almost every relationship, success, and failure I've had in my life with women can be explained with redpill theory. I may not have been cognizant of the dynamics at play, but they were still there. The truth is the truth whether you accept it or not.

[–]metalhead4 1 point2 points  (0 children)

TRP hurts when I think of my last LTR because its so true. I still miss that one after 2 years but I push on and try not to miss it while banging other chicks.

[–]dan_legend 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Seriously, how the fuck is TRP not true if we can all basically word for word describe the same love interest relationship where we were beta, paid lots of money and spent lots of time trying to emulate Prince Charming all with the same exact result. 2,000 Miles apart with the same story from North Carolina to California.

Its not rocket science.

[–]Glenbert 1 point2 points  (0 children)

(I once saw it mentioned in the same breath as child porn and necrophilia porn) -- decide to check it out one day...

Now that's what I call preselection.

[–]beerthroway 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I would be willing to bet that there are a sizeable portion of men that a least have a physically attractive face (7/10+) and their bodies are just in need of lifting. They may be a little chubby but dropping 10-20 lbs of fat and building 10 lbs of muscle would put them in the realm of 8/10 physical attractiveness.

However, that is only 1/3 of your total smv as a guy. Money and game are important also and for most of us, we are beta bitches that "just get by" with finances.

Not saying that's the majority. I'm not even going to put a number to it, but I'm sure that there are enough physically attractive men here with a shit approach to life that it would be a significant demographic.

[–]metalhead4 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I wish i made more money but I only have about $27/hr to look forward to based off our longest serving technicians. Go to school, get a job they said. Whatever I have job security, I lift, I ride a motorcycle. GG.

[–]Baylien2 45 points46 points  (4 children)

Honestly TRP is more in line with the way people think in the real world from my experience. The rest of reddit is full of extreme left wing utopian and PC police. Your average joe usually is aware to some degree that women are hypergamous and that improving yourself makes you more attractive. Life isn't the fairytale that the rest of reddit tells you it is or ought to be.

[–]JayViceroy 8 points9 points  (3 children)

TRP is not for bitches and beta faggots. There's no PC police and nobody cares if you're a strong confident womyn or a super alpha sexual demigod. Here people want facts and lessons to improve their life for the better.

TRP is not a community or club. Therefore the circle jerking is many times kept to a minimum allowing for actual debate and discourse.

[–]jackshloggensberg 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Agree with first paragraph.

Second, not so much, there is a lot of circle jerking. Posts where the only purpose is to demonstrate how "stupid" women are, perpetuating the ridiculous idea that seems to occasionally exist on this sub that women are lesser than men. All the top comments on those posts are everyone patting each other on the back for being male.

[–]JayViceroy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Generally speaking however, you can call people out on the bullshit circlejerking and get people to understand a point. Instead of a sub like 2xc that will downvote you into oblivion if you don't leave your dick and balls at the door. I'm still trying to work a lot of these bitch men into realizing that women are not worthless and many of the points made for feminism are not exactly incorrect. If you agree with any aspect of feminism here you're hitler to a lot of dudes which is fucking retarded.

[–]dan_legend -1 points0 points  (0 children)

This sub would be a lot better if it forced Phase description on posts. Titling an anger phase post with "[Anger Phase] Women are Sluts!" would go a long way in helping better explain TRP. Hell, if you are a new member and go to an [Acceptance Phase] post you would be completely clueless why a highly upvoted post is actually supporting women. Such as when someone mentions women have it worst than men, because once they hit 30, its GG. You can't digest a post like that if you're raging along in the Anger Phase.

[–]kinkydiver 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I knew that today's twoX post about that Swedish jerk would bring in new members. People come here to see fat, douchey Nice GuysTM in action, and then go "oh".

[–]Endorsed Contributorleftajar 4 points5 points  (8 children)

This sub is... I never thought say this unironically... empowering.

Before I found this sub, I bought the bullshit that nobody could make sense of women. You've got these famous, brilliant guys with quotes about how women are utterly incomprehensible.

Now, thanks to the internet, we know what women are doing. Over 90% of female behavior can be explained by:

  • Alpha fucks/Beta bucks
  • Briffault's Law
  • Covert communication/Powertalk
  • Solipsism
  • SMV

If a guy was ONLY familiar with those concepts, that would be enough.

[–]PlayFair 0 points1 point  (5 children)

Covert communication/Powertalk

Care to explain this one more?

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

Scan the sidebar for powertalk.

Women use powertalk naturally and effortlessly, compared to men. Men are usually using straighttalk or gametalk, depending.

[–]isthatyourdaughter 0 points1 point  (2 children)

"Would you like to come in for some coffee?"

[–]PlayFair 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Gotcha. so, how is this different than gametalk

[–]Tadg_Strudwick 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The position of power in essence. There is so much on powertalk and game, they are very interesting topics to read up about.

[–]dawg826 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Solipsism is a pretty integral one too.

[–]16 Endorsed ContributorCyralea 8 points9 points  (2 children)

Pay no mind to what redditors have told you about this place. Read for yourself and come to your own conclusions. This is the one place that will tell you how things actually are, not how we wish them to be.

Also, create an alt before you start posting. You're not going to win popularity contests by admitting you come here.

[–]dan_legend 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Also, create an alt before you start posting. You're not going to win popularity contests by admitting you come here.

Or just don't give a fuck since all these points are imaginary anyways.

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

Less so about points, moreso about not getting doxxed. There are some angry kids out there with just enough technical knowledge.

[–]16 Endorsed ContributorGayLubeOil 50 points51 points  (6 children)

You're right this sub is about self improvement. So how about I I give you a helpful self improvement tip.

Split your ideas up into paragraphs. This isnt a fee write that you are doing for your six grade English class. There are grown ass men, some of whom are as old as your dad reading your shit.

A big part of being a successful man, especially in our white collar world is being an effective communicator. So it is my recommendation that if you want to TRP off with us, you stop writing like a little boy. It will only help you in the long run.

[–]aaron_the_great 32 points33 points  (2 children)

I mean I agree with you that you need to be able to write well and that TRP can help with that, but Christ the irony of this post.

This isnt a fee write

This isn't a free write

for your six grade

for your sixth grade

There are grown ass men,

These are grown ass men,

A big part of being a successful man, ... is being

A big part of being a successful man, ..., is being (parenthetical comments require commas before and after)

if you want to TRP off with us

What are you even trying to say? if you want to start TRP off with us?

stop writing like a little boy

For fuck's sake, your writing better be immaculate before you go bashing someone else's.

[–]Focusi -1 points0 points  (1 child)

Notice how GLO didn't make a single remark to grammatical errors but instead pointed out that the paragraphing was terrible?

GLO just like many others on TRP are well aware of the fact that we have a lot of subscribers whom are not native to the English language.

[–]DRMMR76 9 points10 points  (0 children)

It was about communicating. And poor grammar communicates that you're an idiot.

[–]Cant_Tell_Me_Nothin 3 points4 points  (0 children)

If you wanna take it there man, I have to point out that you yourself are making several spelling errors.

[–]TekkomanKingz -1 points0 points  (1 child)

He will get into the groove eventually. Clearly he is probably a youngin' and doesn't have a job that requires him to compose succinct points.

[–]16 Endorsed ContributorGayLubeOil 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I wouldn't be surprised if he was a teen. Unfortunately most English teachers are incapable of creating good writers and instead just mindlessly follow the curriculum. TRP is a great resource for developing writing skills that I hope he will take advantage of.

[–]trpadawan 13 points14 points  (3 children)

Great, now read the sidebar materials and don't post or comment for a while until you absorb the info. It will help you understand everything to lurk for a few weeks.

[–]WordsNotToLiveBy 0 points1 point  (1 child)


OP is a woman. It's not necessary. If anything she should try - r/RedPillWomen

[–]trpadawan 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Didn't even notice, to be honest. Her wall of text made the details blurry.

[–]2elysius 3 points4 points  (2 children)

You guys really can't tell OP is a woman?

[–]WordsNotToLiveBy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Glad to see I wasn't the only one.

She was very keen with her word choices. Reread what she wrote fellas.

P.s. She can also find useful info at r/RedPillWomen.

[–]incakesforme 2 points3 points  (0 children)

you really shouldn't waste time with a post like this.

[–]Stormtrooper_in_Love 7 points8 points  (0 children)

dont post stuff like this here

go to r/asktrp r/thanktrp

Read the sidebar, lurk, dont contribute at all if you are new. If you are not sure about your contributen, rather pm a member or a mod first before spamming this sub. Enjoy your stay.

[–]occupythekitchen 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Please if you stick around can you revise your submissions before submitting them?

[–]liketenstepsaway 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Welcome, mate.

Create a throwaway account for any posts you make in TRP. When you post in other subs people will look through your post history and try to denounce you simply because you've posted here.

[–]joeytman 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah, everyone here has experienced this at one time. OP, take this advice. You're not doing it to save your karma, because it's worthless, but because SJW'S will dox you for just posting here.

[–]Chafmere 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I recently called put a friend on Christmas day for being a red piller type person. He was talking shit about how women were just cum dumpsters not only in front of men but women as well, fucking rude dip shit kid. Anyway I got home and I thought to myself that I'd mever actually been to TRP and pmly thought I kmew what it was from posts on reddit. So I come here and what can I say. Great sub reddit. Sorry for labelling that kid a red piller, he's still angry, I linked him this place in the hope that he will find a way to chann el it.

[–]2fatpernis 2 points3 points  (1 child)

The Red Pill: Discussion of sexual strategy in a culture increasingly lacking a positive identity for men.

Not self-improvement.

[–]moiez326 1 point2 points  (0 children)

self-improvement is a huge part of it. If you just go by textbook definitions, you'll get no where.

[–]cooltrip 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Some people think this subreddit comprises advice about how to become an alpha, for guys that aren't alpha.

But I prefer to think about it like this: this subreddit tells you: turn off your beta mode, turn on your alpha mode. (Women don't have an alpha mode to turn on; only men have)

Why? Because women prefer superior men.

In other words, this subreddit teaches you the following:

1º) Female gender is inferior to male gender, this is why women prefer and need to select alpha, superior men, and so they are hypergamous. (That is: female inferiority is the biological basis of female biological hypergamy. Women only want to fuck the best male genes; but men would love to fuck as many women as possible if they could -promiscuity is male; selectiveness is female-)

2º) So, according to that natural state of things, you should enter your alpha mode, and you should treat women according to their inferiority, that is, don't put them on a pedestal.

[–]RojaPastilla 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Remember, read read and read. I've been on this sub for almost a year but just created an account. It is very helpful. My biggest advice is to keep this theory a secret. Do not talk about to your friends, family or coworkers.

[–]occupythekitchen 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think you're being too paranoid I send my best friend who is one of the most beta guys I know to this sub he was rather intrigued by the sub. But I am afraid he may have given up on bettering himself. Great dude just really bad with women

[–]RN_TH3_TRP 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I'm guessing this is at the top because all of the newbies upvoted it.

Stop upvoting and read the doggam sidebar.

[–]NeoreactionSafe 7 points8 points  (0 children)

While it's nice that you approve of our enlightenment your post doesn't offer much in the way of fresh ideas.

We have standards of high quality here.

Do better next time.

Sidebar, sidebar, sidebar.

[–]Mechbiscuit 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Rule one: Do not talk about TRP.

Rule two: Read the sidebar.

Rule three: Sort by top - all time and start reading.

Rule four: Anything written by Rollo Tomassi is good shit.

[–]webroketheinternet 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Anytime I have spoken about my new found knowledge with a plate it has basically destroyed it. Once women are aware you have this knowledge they realise they have no power at all and walk away.

Sound advice, shutting my mouth from now on.

[–]brujon 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You don't tell the pig you're taking them to the slaughterhouse.

[–]seattleron 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Yes, that's what happens when people use their emotion to think rather than objective logic, as well as stating facts.

[–]lordofthejelly 1 point2 points  (0 children)

but I feel like they don't even know why they do

With time, experience, and sidebar reading, you will eventually realize that many behaviors by women are exactly like that...they have no idea why they do any of it.

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

Welcome. Read the Sidebar. That needs to be the first damn thing you read. Especially the Misandry Bubble.

[–]toucans_tunes 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I find this subreddit's public image to be comparable to the current cloud surrounding Muslims. Stick with me;

Most people who sub here are benefiting from the supportive community, and focus on self improvement. It can be a very positive way to live. They might have a few controversial views but that's not why they are here.

" Extremists " can find justification for their hatred (especially for their misogynistic mindsets) despite that not being the core message and benefit the community aims to have. This is usually the most vocal group, scanning subs like twox to post the red pill version of things. They get off on the thrill.

People see the gems these extremists drop and only have that to associate with the community. And it is repeatedly reinforced.

Perhaps better defining your values and vocally condemning the hatred would bring more understanding your way.

[–]Brassporkchop 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yes there's a ton of threads that are extreme but then again all of the smaller subs have those. Also the language is quite bellicose but you need to remember who who the audience is, it's men giving men instruction.

The fact is the core ideas are dead on accurate. In every thread that has some poor schmuck looking for advice you'll see "don't listen to that rp crap" followed by rp advice.

[–]TheRealMouseRat 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Let me guess, you came here because of the AMA in /r/tumblrinaction ?

I would say that the #1 rule of The Red Pill is:

"women, and people in general, are attracted to and look up to successful, fit, charismatic men. So work to become and stay as one."

[–]krustytheclown2 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Once you take a non-superficial look at this subreddit and read the information in the sidebar your opinion of this subreddit may change. There is a certain mindset that needs to be adopted after you take the red pill.

This mindset runs counter to mainstream thinking. Before becoming a redpiller a lot of the behavior of women is pretty mysterious. It doesn't make sense to us because men and women react differently given the same situation. After become a redpiller you are able to analyze the behavior of women and understand the "why".

[–]therellikofthenight 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is the post I referred to in my last post.

Whether you like it or not, you are impressionable. We are all impressionable. When you're surrounded by negative people, you will be negative. When you read forums full of immature children, you will be immature. When you see 20 commercials a day you will want to spend money on bullshit.

Similarly, when you read good non-fiction, you will be wiser. When you surround yourself with positive people, you will be positive. When you only watch high quality media (preferably without the commercials), you will be entertained in a healthy way.

This is absolutely critical. My first six months of swallowing the pill were slowed down significantly because I had negative and lazy friends and worked with children pretending to be adults. Quitting my job and finding cool friends has accelerated my progress by a huge extent. Do not become friends with lazy and negative people. If you're surrounded by idiots at your place of work then get out. If you watch mainstream shows like The Big Bang Theory then stop and find some higher quality media. If you have trouble reading a book then you're probably on the internet too much and your attention span has taken a hit. Start reading some good books.

Don't let bullshit into your headspace. Be absolutely unforgiving when it comes to this.

Felt the same way when I joined a week ago

As someone who was recently trying to defend TRP to people who hate TRP, but actually have no idea what it's all about, i feel you, OP.

"...because I like it and screw what other people think"

That is how I live my life and I've never been happier. Being able to live this way is better than anything else this site offers. Sure sex is great and so is money and being strong but nothing compares to this attitude. Once you stop caring about others' opinions and live life by your rules, it gets so much easier.

It shouldn't be surprising that people hate it.

This sub teaches many things which are definitely contra to values held by society (read: The Blue Pill).

This sub opposes the rhetoric that men and women are the same, have no inherent behavioural differences or separate roles in society.

It also opposes the way men are often portrayed to act in popular culture, which is heavily different to the conditions and mating strategies that the human species has evolved through.

RP is about defining and embracing the differences between the sexes and sexual strategy. Understanding behavioural differences between men and women ("Holy shit you're saying that men and women behave differently? You must be a fucking sexist pig!"), and using this to your advantage.

No content. No formatting. Wrong sub. Why is this being upvoted to the top?

[–]2asd1100 0 points1 point  (0 children)

but I feel like they don't even know why they do

oh but the women that tell them what to think do

not for OP:

I think that you guys and are tired of being treated as the bad guy simply because your a guy

:)) this is what happens when this sub becomes MRA 2.0, the whole point of amorality flies out the window, so what was that about the signal not being affected by this SJ bullshit=

If you plan on posting and commenting regularly get a TRP-specific throwaway. Due to the hate this sub receives from the rest of reddit any mods that check your comment/posting history may shadowban or outright ban your account for 'being part of a hate group.'

[–]Eat_The_Muffin 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I saw it mentioned elsewhere and in my typical way of going against the crowd I decided to actually see what it was like before judging it.

Some of it is a bit weird but it in general it is good.

[–]yehim 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's funny how easily some people hate others and never realise they might be the problem.

[–]intrepid_i 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Same, first post i read and i was like this is some good stuff

[–]RichieFinn 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Encouraging to see posts like this. Good luck in the future man.

[–]annuncirith 0 points1 point  (0 children)

People Sheeple hate what they don't understand.

Especially if they don't have the balls to dive in.

[–]sluggy1616 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I like this sub. You read the side bar, and then ponder what you've read. "Can this be true based on my experiences?"

The real power of the sub is the collective intelligence of thousands of individuals. Before the web there was no way to gather collective intelligence out of your social circle. The collective intelligence PROVES to us that the side bar material is not speculation. It is FACT. The individual can now act confidently knowing that he has the truth as to "how things are" in the real world. AWALT

[–]Gnashtaru 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Welcome! Glad to have you! Good to see another beacon of hope for humanity alight.

[–]tcat84 2 points3 points  (9 children)

This sub seems very polarized. It's like a battle between guys who want to focus on their hate/contol on women and ones that just want to focus on themselves

[–]JACKDOGBOB 8 points9 points  (6 children)

There is definitely a schism within TRP. But I would say it is between two main groups. The first group is rather hedonistic. They live for themselves and see women chiefly as objects to be manipulated. They have no qualms with banging anything that walks, including taken women. They have come to the conclusion that female nature cannot and should not be controlled and oppose any types of moral constraints on sexual activity. This first group sees the decline in western society and realizes they cannot reverse it. The second major group within TRP has come to understand the nature of women as well, however they believe there are ways to curtail female behavior that should be implemented. These are the more conservative types generally. The second group typically idealizes the nuclear family of the 1950's and often resents the current state of gender relations. Group 2 typically has a tendency to believe in moral absolutes which often causes some anger towards slutty women in general. I personally am a bit more conservative and tend to sympathize with group 2, however I find myself agreeing with the ideas of group 1 often. Perhaps there is a happy medium somewhere. I do think the one unifying theme is the idea of self improvement though. Everybody can agree that working out, landing a good job, and learning game can drastically increase your success with women.

[–]1FatStig 3 points4 points  (5 children)

Treating them the way group 1 does is the only way they will ever learn. They wanted liberation and agency. Now they reap the responsibility that comes with it. Either they learn or they won't. Those who produce many successful children will out breed those who don't in 2 generations or less.

The end result will be something similar to what group 2 wishes they had. Men cannot fix this situation at least in the current society. Either women will or those who ascribe to the truth will out breed and out compete those living in a fantasy.

[–]JACKDOGBOB 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I can agree with that. They will certainly reap what they have sown. I just dont know what the future is going to look like. I mean how can you have an entire society that for a large part doesnt marry or produce offspring? Or if marriage does hapoen, divorce is very prevalent and economically cripples a large demographic of men. It just seems unsustainable to me.

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

It won't. Either they'll wise up and the transition won't be so tumultuous or they won't.

[–]CornyHoosier 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Either they learn or they won't.

Well, considering that progression of humanity relies on them learning ... maybe it would help if me showed them the way.

[–]zookeepier 0 points1 point  (1 child)

they won't. Those who produce many successful children will out breed those who don't in 2 generations or less.

I'd lean more toward the plot of Idiocracy and say that the more successful (responsible) people have fewer children because they are more discerning, while the trashy people have tons of kids and get the government to pay for them and raise them.

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

Yes if everyone remains in fantasy land of blue pill that will be the result. It won't be though because those who acknowledge the truth will win out.

[–]1independentmale 0 points1 point  (1 child)

It's not, really. The first group are still in the anger phase. They feel dismissed by women and/or society or they've been recently burned by a woman (that's what led me here) and they're upset. Eventually, most of these guys will grow out of that. It takes time.

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

I would not agree that that is an accurate depiction. There's quite a bit of merit to group 1.

[–]Bearhardy -4 points-3 points  (0 children)

Nobody here cares what you or anybody else thinks about this sub.

To the others stop upvoting this thrash.

[–]BlackHeart89 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Just curious. Are you a woman OP?

[–]PencilNeckBrah -5 points-4 points  (6 children)

Yeah this sub is amazing, feels like i'm back on the misc.

[–]gui524 0 points1 point  (1 child)

As much as I loved my time being a miscer, please don't compare the two

[–]PencilNeckBrah 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's the same principles, they're just more negative about it.

[–][deleted]  (1 child)


    [–]Genghis-Brah -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

    Well this is the only decent sub on reddit. So many neck beards here.
