I was raised in probably one of the most extreme feminist cultures of the 1990s, and we were taught that slogan, "feminism is the radical notion that women are people."
Women were always people. The trouble with this is that the loaded word here is, "people."
TRP takes women off the fictional pedestal of being magical, nurturing, loving, maternal saints, and recognizes that they are individuals with self-interest and biological imperative. They are people who are capable of all the guile, cunning and predatory instinct of the most stone cold man.
Their survival toolkit has a lot less capability for physical violence in it, and yet it still has to be at least as dangerous as the male one. That's how serious theirs needs to be.
There's a reason "the female of the species is more deadly than the male." Our fathers and grandfathers were taught Kipling's version of this in grade school, but it's been effectively banned as sexist since the 1990s. http://www.potw.org/archive/potw96.html
TRP acknowledges this more than any critical theory revisionist mythmaking ever could. The big point is that TRP has a few thousand years of prior art that has literally been suppressed in the education system for the last 25 years. The more I read this site, TRP isn't fringe, radical, self-help, or reactionary at all. It's wisdom that has stood the test of time. It's wisdom that has been the focus of a coordinated political effort to raise boys in ignorance of.
So yes, of course women are people - and history shows that people are generally pretty fucking awful. Handle them with care.
