Do be afraid of the public and the state siding with them 90% of the time

This is the ironic part. The "progressive" court systems, and public, side with women so frequently because they see them as weak and inferior and constant victims. Whereas if they viewed them as equally accountable for their actions, they would not default to assuming women are victims. All this championing of women is based on assuming they're inferior.

There is not a single person on this world that has not felt insecure before. Knowing this gives me confidence. I also noticed people strongly gravitate towards people who have confidence. They all want a piece of your confidence so to speak. Interesting.

Definitely true. Men also bluff. But it seems women do it a hell of a lot more.

One of the worst experiences of my life, but probably the most formative, was working for a woman boss in a corporate environment. I had exposure to an atomic-powered hamster, fitness tests, the whole nine yards. I should really write an FR on it, because dealing with the fallout from it was what first really made RP click for me.

Powertalk, even more so.

This woman bluffed. Oh man did she bluff. And she's still there, grinding away. I was the last person they will ever let her supervise though, because I took everything she said seriously and it almost killed me (and why wouldn't I? I'd never been exposed to doublespeak/powertalk before.)

    I'll think about it. I'd need a while to organize my thoughts and turn them into a coherent narrative.

    And you don't beat a hamster in the workplace. You just outlast it.

    I have a friend who went through this once. One day he decided that it was not the life he wanted and called in sick. When asked what he had, he said deadbeat that his psychiatrist told him to stay home. He looks way better now, body and mind.

    Well, once she told him that if he was a man, he should be able to complete a report by the end of the day... I left at 8 pm and he was still in the office working on it ... First time I realized how toxic she was.

    /u/ColdEiric explains where to learn more below.

    I don't know where you are in life, but in the working world, you will deal with it every day. I don't know if knowing about it before you experience it will be helpful, either, because I fear that if you read up on it, you may start seeing it everywhere, when really, it's really occuring about 60% of the time--the rest of the time is usually very frank communication in my experience.

      The same could be said for anyone else in your life. Can't find it right now (my reaction image folder is too big and disorganized), but I have a motivational picture with a quote like "When you feel insecure, remember that you're comparing your work-in-progress to others' finished products." Everyone fronts. Women, men, everyone. Don't let the front get you down.

      The reason for this is simple, they lie about their interests and activities.

      Most of them anyway.

      Dont get me wrong, there are a lot of interesting people out there, and some of them are female. But the majority of the interesting things females claim to be doing or into is total BS and easily uncovered once you ask them even the most remotely in depth questions about their subject matter

      So fucking true, man.

      I had an ex leech on to my own interests. At first it was endearing, and then it got obnoxious. Then her friend took interest and she bitched to me about how this girl was biting her style and originality.

      Hormones will make a person delusional.

      Just wait till you find a girl that leeches people off of you. I'm not just talking about sharing friends. I'm talking about where she uses you as a dating service for herself. Been there... Don't plan on doing that again.

      I kind of heard this is how it is but I have a hard time believing it. Hot girls have been pretty since very young so they have had dozens of people sucking up to them, complimenting them, wanting to be with them, giving them everything them want, so of course they're used to looking down on everybody and thus they have evolved their personality to reflect that, thus the bitchy attitude, bitch shields, etc.

      [–][deleted] 21 points22 points  (1 child)

      sorry, this has been archived and can no longer be voted on

      Nope you got it backwards. Pretty girls are accustom to being the hottest shit in their local areas while growing up. They get addicted to the attention. Once they hit the real world they get smacked back to reality that someone out there will always be hotter. Because they cannot accept truth as it is, they spend much more time on their appearance. Rather than realize what they have is still good, they look over at the other bitch and feel insecure (men do this too). Riding the cock carousal helps delay the insecurities. The only time they realize this is when they hit the wall, look in the mirror, see an old bag and realIze they can never look like they did at 18, freak out because their whole life has been a huge battle against insecurities (that they lost), realize they haven't experienced life at all because of this, settle with a beta.

      As a massive beta growing up I often thought myself a loser to hotter women who would get their way whilst I had to work hard for what I wanted.

      These days I take pride in the fact that I'm working hard took better myself, whilst knowing her looks will fade in time. Then what?

        I have so many good examples for this..... but I dont like to write long posts because my english isnt good enough

        one good example was a situation 1 month ago. A women at work would always wear ballet flat shoes . The sound of it is pretty dull and loud, a real contrast to all the other shoes the women are wearing at the office with highheels. I made fun it a little bit by saying "these shoes..." and she was like "what?". "You sound like you stamp your foot", I said. She didnt answer and played it cool. I felt like she was ignoring me/not liking me, I thought I fucked up and she wouldnt speak to me again or something like that.

        The next day, yeah, she came first time with highheels. Was pretty funny. She never did that before. Some hours later she came in my office barefoot. I was just looking at it and she immediately said "Yeah,I know, no shoes". She couldnt wear them anymore.

        She wasn't used to wear highheels so it hurt her feet.

        She acted cool the day before but she showed me that she was affected by the "insult" I told her. Only one of many examples I already experienced.

        When you say something harsh, women give you the feel that you fucked up and you will regret it. But the next time you see her she is nice and interested around you. They often act cool, but most of the time they are very insecure.

        It's true. I dress up to go out with my girlfriends, worry about how they view my weight (I am thin, but for women, anything is fair game for snickers), and stress about my lack of accomplishments more than I ever do with my boyfriend. It's really because women like to tear each other apart in a way that men wouldn't think to.

        There is a reason loud shoes sell. Just like short skirts and cleavage tops always sell. Mosr women are after the quick fix. Attention, Now. Make up, short this and that. Loud shoes. Oppinionated, loud voiced etc, etc. They are after the quick fix and if you give it to them you will recieve a small, quick appreciation in return. But... If you take your time and play the long game... Sex or no sex, in the end you end up with respect. Isn't that what it is all about?

        It's the Betas that give them an overinflated sense of importance and self-worth. It's the Betas that have voted for the media, Hollywood, and the government to lean feminist.

        Used to do it myself from time to time. I've since learned better, and a little disgusted even at some of my past Beta behavior when it comes to women.

        Don't be angry at women. Women are gonna do what women are gonna do when left without the guidance and correction of a strong man. If Red Pill men want to be pissed at anybody .... they should be pissed at Betas for allowing our society to become this way.

        [–]2elysius 3 points4 points  (1 child)

        sorry, this has been archived and can no longer be voted on

        Completely agree. It's mostly betas who make feminism viable by giving it airtime, support and validation, including legal.

        Funny thing is, the more powerful feminism becomes thanks to betas, the less these women want to have anything do with them. Take the recent #YesAllWomen fad, which arose from feminists making fun of the "not all men are like that" response they were getting. The only guys who care enough to say that, when a girl complains about men, are betas, particularly feminist betas, since they derive their entire self-worth from not being "like the other guys.". And it's getting much more common that feminists are saying men shouldn't get involved in feminism, that men shouldn't have a say in women's issues, etc. I've seen many beta feminist men trying to make a point that this mindset is sexist or whatever, but feminists are having none of it. So these guys are starting to resent feminism, but they are still betas so they hamster it away by telling themselves that women like that are not real feminists. They are one step away from becoming disillusioned with feminism and swallowing the red pill, but I doubt many of them will.

        [–]53Pirate 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        sorry, this has been archived and can no longer be voted on

        This is why the Betas in our lives must be marginalized at every opportunity and the women in our lives need to see that happen. Otherwise, in subtle ways they attempt to undermine our power and authority.

        For example, I have two very Beta neighbors. I don't visibly dislike them and I don't talk to them a lot, but when I do it's from a position of the superior male. (Their wives like me a lot, btw.)

        Competition does not exist between men and women. You say the Denver Broncos "competed" with the local JV football team. It is two totally different leagues. Evolution didn't make men stronger, larger, and more aggressive so we could compete With women. It was so we could compete FOR women.

          It's either a patriarchy or matriarchy. It can't be both; perfect equality is a Disney-like ideal held by feminists. Just like in a relationship one person wears the pants, society overall either values masculine ideals or the feminine. It should be plainly obvious to anyone unplugged which one we're in.

          But it can be neither. A [gender]archy implies there's some systematic putting-down of one gender, which isn't the case in either respect.

          This is precisely what happens when you have baseless confidence. Ever lied about being good at something and then struggling to keep up the image? That's what's going through the girls' minds constantly. They believe they're prettier than anyone else. They think that they ought to have more sex than anyone else and not be judged for it. Their coping mechanism is believing their own bullshit. That's the hamster and that is why they have an endless list of complaints.

          To be fair, if you're a perfectionist, you understand this paranoia. But unlike women, you never ask someone else to fix your mistakes. That's the difference between men and women. Men do and women ask others to do things for them. That alone should speak volumes.

          Maybe the same thing as I've observed -- the better looking they are, the more normal and nice their personalities are. Hence their femaleness (including the weaknesses) come out, at least to a man she cares about.

          She may be much less willing to show that weakness to other women though.

          Anyone who’s ever dated a really hot girl knows how insecure they are behind the scene. You say one thing, one thing, and they’re running to the bathroom balling their eyes out. Something that isn’t even such a big deal. A simple joke even. And it can absolutely devastate them. The experienced guys on here know what I’m talking about.

          The holy texts wouldn't get away with the claim that good, competent women are helpers to their dominant men, if it were not true.

          One of the axioms over at RPW is this: The Captain and the First Mate.

          Go ahead, take a guess. Which role do the girls at RPW consider theirs?

          The holy texts tell the women to be helpers to their men. They never say that women lose their female weaknesses.

          You seem to have a feminist interpretation of the scriptures. Try just reading them for yourself, I suspect you have not. Or else show me where the "strong helper" idea is supported.
