Red Pill TheoryInstagram = Hypergagram - No Country For Red Men (self.TheRedPill)

submitted by diomedes777[🍰]

I don't use Instagram. I had it for a couple of months before realizing it was perhaps one of the most insanely toxic and demonic of human technological conceptions in recent history, and I felt like my testicles were receding inside me ever so slightly every time I posted or "liked" someone's picture. I'm only 24, too. I'm also in very good shape and have no issues with women - so this isn't coming from a place of "jealousy" or "bitterness". More, a place of ... fascination.


Recently I've been browsing it again out of curiosity, checking up on people I know and hang out with, people from my gym, girls etc.

Every female profile I have come across, of women I know/women I see at the gym or work, is a collection of desperate, hypergamy-drenched soft-core porn. Every single profile is a work of unabashed, tasteless and hyper-sexualised vanity. Out of about 200 profiles of girls I know I could show you maybe 10 that don't feature relentless ass and bikini photos. One of my best friends has a 14 year old sister with 15k followers, and her profile is simply photos of her ass and basically nothing else. She is 14 for fuck's sake, I go to her house and eat dinner with her and her family and laugh at her when she has to be in bed by 10.

Her latest photo is her in a bikini from behind with a blurry, pathetic looking beanie sitting scrunched up on the bed next to her, her ass takes up almost the entire shot and the caption is "loving my new (sponsored brand name) beanie!!", with ~4k likes and hundreds of comments all along the lines of "peach emoji" "tongue out emoji" "praying hands emoji" from not only men but other women. It's completely mind blowing. I've heard this girl fart and sing Justin Bieber around the house.

I discovered the profile of a personal trainer at my gym. She's post wall, quite attractive still and a really funny/humble seeming person. Her profile, once again, is just photos of her ass. The same fucking photo over and over, standing sideways in the mirror with her ass sticking out, sitting on her bed wearing an open shirt with nothing underneath and a G-string on with "loving these warm days" caption etc. You can taste the anxious, post-wall desperation to the point where it's almost uncomfortable.

Two cute girls at work - both quiet and shy, both in relationships. Their profiles look like preliminary casting-couch auditions. There is nothing of any interest on any of these women's Instagram pages, it's simply just photos of their bodies and thousands of likes and comments from complete strangers. In photos with their boyfriends, they are STILL sticking their asses out as far as possible and making that the center of the photo, as if to signal to the internet and the omnipresent Chad F. Thundercock himself "please come and fuck me and cuck this little bitch i'm with".

At this point I had to take a break and put my phone down, my dick confused and my mind spinning. I was overwhelmed. I thought, "Alright, Diomedes, so what, 50 out of 50 girl's profiles you've looked at have been full of ass and tits photos, there has to be SOME girls with decent, interesting profiles?"

I remembered the feminist wearing a huge trench coat I met out in a bar a few weeks ago who scolded me for wearing a girl's Trump shirt and lectured me on misogyny and white male privilege. She told me she was an artist. I looked her name up as I managed to get her number and name anyway. Lel. Lo and behold, near complete nudes of her. Standing in the mirror in bondage gear, a g string up her ass, fingers in her mouth, lying in her bed in an open shirt, bent over in Victoria's Secret, you name it - this profile had it. Her art was all drawings of vaginas, dicks, and graphic sex. It sent me down a rabbit hole of all her "feminist" friend's profiles, and they were almost all identical. Nudity, sex, vulgar art, nudity, ass, sex, shitty art, ass, ass, ass, bondage, ass, alcohol, cigarettes, cats. Girls who talk about spirituality and equality, feminism and female empowerment - their profiles could all be mistaken for an amateur pornstar's.

What blows my mind even further is that many of these women are in relationships and their boyfriends are "liking" and commenting on these public pictures. I don't even know where to begin on that.

I'm not exaggerating or cherry picking here. Try it yourself. The girl you're into at the moment? A current plate? Look at her Instagram and you will see photos of her ass. The cute feminist in one of your college units? Look at her Instagram.

This shit is toxic for men, too. One of my training partners at the gym was recently dumped by his LTR, and since then he's started an Instagram profile entirely made up of him posing shirtless in different scenic locations. He gets a female friend and his sister to go on road trips with him specifically to take photos of him for his Instagram. His inbox is full of messages from gay men. At the gym he's constantly checking his likes and followers and asking me about which photos to post. He is heavily depressed, it's fucking sad and obvious he's doing this to get the attention of his ex who cheated and left him. He's extremely good looking, has thousands of followers, girls like his stuff, and yet moans to me on a weekly basis about not being able to meet women, about not fucking, and how he just wants his ex back. My mind tells me the women liking his posts and posts by other accounts like his, simply want to be associated with a physically attractive man, yet are fundamentally disgusted by his obvious insecurity and never want to actually meet him or fuck him.

Going from meeting women in real life, not having them on social media and only interacting with them in person, to then finding their Instagram accounts is like being smashed across the face with a BBC dildo. It's a parallel universe. All women are seemingly, inherently the same person. They all want to be famous, they all objectify themselves, they all conform to some unspoken law of "in order to be accepted here, you must objectify yourself". It totally tarnishes my idea of these otherwise previously desirable girls and turns me off to the point of not even wanting to have anything in the slightest to do with them.

This is the state of cuckoldry we've entered fellas. We've got to sit back and be told we're disgusting pigs, that toxic masculinity is the problem, that we are inherent rapists, that we objectify women, and here we have these exact same women willingly posing essentially naked for millions of men. You don't want a woman who shows off her body publicly to millions, if not billions, of men? Too fucking bad, you disgusting shitlord. It's 2017.

If an alien came to our planet and saw Instagram, it would believe it was some sort of amazing, God-sent breeding application built for men. It would then vomit and recoil in terror and disgust and immediately leave our planet once we explained the real state of affairs.

Interestingly, when I go far back on many of these profiles, the photos get increasingly more innocent, there's no ass shots or body photos or anything. You can actually pinpoint the moment this perversion started to take hold on these girls, as if some sort of whore-switch has been universally set off in their brains at the same time. It's fascinating.

Being on Instagram made me feel like some sort of utility or resource. I can't explain it. It is as if the average male exists on Instagram as nothing more than a faceless source of validation feeding and contributing to this "movement". A tool, if you will. I looked at some of my male friend's accounts, they have ~200 followers and post nothing but pictures of food and scenery and shitty selfies taken in their car or bedrooms. No one comments on anything, they get 10 likes, it is just fucking sad, i'm not even a woman and their profiles made my pussy shrivel up.


My foray into the world of Instagram was a disgusting but eye opening one. Men do not belong in this dark, twisted place. If you are using it to facilitate business, or to show off a top 1% lifestyle, more power to you. These are the only examples I can think where a man could be excused for using this platform, otherwise you are an orbiter and validation resource with an uninteresting profile whether you like it or not. Get off that app, retain your dignity and your mystery.


[–]GEN_GOTHMOG 162 points163 points  (13 children)

Average female millennial. They use all social media platforms to magically increase their smv by way of likes, comments, rates, followers etc.

They like to join tinder just to recruit beta orbiters to feed off of. It's pretty pathetic and another reason women my age deserve absolutely no respect. I think of the things I have accomplished in my life and wonder what they have done for themselves, the answer is most likely nothing. Because they're vapid, vacuous, self entitled and egotistical.

I use instagram for my business, nothing more.

[–]yomo86 29 points30 points  (4 children)

The funny thing though is, they avoid it like hell to put themselves in a real-life scenario in which the validation machine does not work. The internet is full of instagram whore but also full of females lamenting about not getting attention by guys on the street.

Use the dark side. Shooting down an insta-whore is easy and creates so much approval seeking behavior.

[–][deleted] 24 points25 points  (0 children)

It's essentially the female equivalent of sitting at home on sat looking at porn instead of actually going out to meet people

[–]MrRaspberryJamz 7 points8 points  (2 children)

Yet they also bitch about being cat-called or approached by men... makes no fucking sense.

    Hyperinflation of the pussy market.

    Bubbles always burst. If Men can't avoid psychological triggers that lead them to keep inflating known bubbles what makes anyone think women are going to safely deflate an asset bubble they don't even know exists?

    Vaginas are worth pocket change. The true value of a woman is the skills, time and care she brings to the table. Her role was not oppression. It was economic NECESSITY.

    [–]TrogRP 5 points6 points  (0 children)

    Can confirm. A girl I know was dumped, and shortly after gained high interest in a very high SMV guy. Turns out the dude isn't into her (a 6) and dates another chick (decent 8-9). Immediately following she created a Tinder where she's swarmed with matches, constantly brags about it, and then doesn't go on dates with them because the orbiter validation is enough. I used to be one of her orbiters before I came here and learned AWALT.

    [–]inertargongas 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    I spent some time talking to this girl I met online, and she kept going on and on about how she was an actress in the (then) upcoming Netflix show, Thirteen Reasons Why. I thought that was pretty cool and she was super excited about it. Ultimately she stopped talking to me because I'm excited about virtual reality, and she thinks virtual reality is the epitome of fake, and she hates all things fake. Whatever, we had no chemistry at all, good riddance.

    Well, one day I clicked the link for her Instagram and saw that she had 230k followers. Wtf? She's maybe a 6 or a 7, doesn't post anything particularly racey (although she used to cam on chaturbate, come to find out), so I wasn't sure where the Instagram renown came from.

    Did a little research and found that she had gained like 20,000 followers a day for several weeks on end, at a really predictable pace, right up until the influx abruptly stopped, and followers started leaving at a rate of about 300 followers a day. So basically she had bought fake followers. Hundreds of thousands of them. I searched around to see what that might cost.. this 20 year old girl spent fucking $8000 on fake Instagram followers. The continual losses were equal to $10 worth of those followers disappearing every day. I guess she was getting ready to be noticed or whatever, but holy shit what a waste!

    Well the show comes out, and she's a fucking extra. Not even a good extra; not one single speaking line, and couldn't even do a passable job walking from point A to point B. What a head case.. I can't imagine living with myself after parting with $7k for something so worthless. Maybe she has an easier time sleeping knowing that all her photos have 6000+ likes from accounts that are without a doubt controlled by a bot. All this from the girl who supposedly detests fakeness! It shouldn't hurt my brain this much BUT IT DOES!!

    To me, the popularity of social media among women has only revealed their essential nature. It's not that women are becoming more superficial and vain, it's that social media gives full flight to their superficiality and vanity.

    It's not just vanity. Women are sexual beings. Think about this: why do women exist? What can't men do that we need women to do for us? protect us? feed us? be our friends?

    The answer is, of course, reproduction. Men can do everything without women other than reproduce.

    Therefore, what are women good for? Reproduction. Making and raising kids.

    Because this is why women exist, this is what they are driven towards in all of their thoughts and behaviors. They display their sexuality, because it's what they exist for.

    Why does a woman get bored if your conversation has no sexual content? Because she exists for sex. Why does a woman think a guy is creepy if he's unattractive? Because she sees him as an unwanted sex partner. Why are women attracted to men who can provide for them? Because women are meant for making and raising babies and the rest is up to the men.

    Society does everything it can to blind us to this. Once you see your interactions with women this way it changes your world.

    [–]diomedes777[S,🍰] 19 points20 points  (0 children)

    This is a fantastic post. I have nothing really to add, this is basically the objective truth as far as I'm concerned. Women are biologically wired to operate in a mode of perpetual sexuality. Their entire world conception is one filtered by sex. It is all they know.

        [–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (9 children)

        I don't agree at all that they are useful only for reproduction.

        To clarify, women are obviously capable of many other things than just reproduction, but on average men can do those things better. The one thing women can do that men cannot do is provide reproductive capacity.

          Women CAN do all the things I said equally well as men, except for physical things regarding strength.

          This is where we disagree.

          Men are more driven to succeed, funnier, more creative, and have a greater proportion of highly intelligent individuals (the "idiot and genius" factor).

          [–]el_beso_negro 2 points3 points  (0 children)

          I think the human male sex is biologically allowed to gene express at greater extremes than women. That would explain why bell curves for men in several stats such as IQ, height, strength, T-levels etc are flatter and more widespread such that natural selection will act more harshly on unsuccessful males yet reward successful males very well. That would explain why we have a greater # of CEOs and homeless individuals. This difference would economize gender roles so that women are at a lesser risk of failing to reproduce while guys are basically more of a genetic guinea pig as we are reproductively more expendable.

          [–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (4 children)

          Maybe there is more exceptional individuals among men, and I think women are not as funny as men, but I still think it's partially because of society not encouraging women to be indivdual, pursue science or some obscure interests. No wonder, when women are taught from the beginning, even by other women, that looking pretty is one of the most important things.

            [–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (1 child)

            I believe in biological differences :D and I'm not saying that men are not more driven, but that the number of exceptional female individuals is not as high as it could be because of society's shallow view of them. I'm not denying any scientific evidence, nor differences between genders.

            EDIT: By that I mean they are often indoctrinated to not pursue intelectual interests (that's for boys, etc.) and taught that looks are one of the most important things, so some of those women could have been exceptional, but because of that aren't. But it's slowly getting better.

            [–]aherne18 6 points7 points  (1 child)

            Why are women attracted to men who can provide for them?

            I agree with you, but you got it completely wrong with this one. Women are DISGUSTED by providers and usually only "date" them after their time with alphas is ebbing and, as such, have no option other than "settling down" with someone else's money. Their relationships with providers can be summarized as : "starfish sex for cash"!

            [–]el_beso_negro 3 points4 points  (0 children)

            Back in mother's day I saw a social media post where some chick was complaining about how the real battle for equality nowadays is to end women slut shaming eachother.

            "If you criticize my nearly transparent blouse that reveals my darker bra and call me a slut for dressing as sexually as possible then you are not a true sister/femenist".

            Made me wonder if historically other male revolutionaries obsessed so much about their sex lives. I mean after the french revolution were any of the guys obsessed with the oppression of other dudes who liked to walk around the street with their cocks out or wearing string thongs in public?

              Great post but none of the women I follow are like this. Even my slutty oneitis that brought me to TRP is mostly pics of stuff. Occasional face selfie. I think there's a type of person who only does gratifying selfies, and you seem to be living in a hellish place where every female is that person.

              [–][deleted] 23 points24 points  (5 children)

              where do you live? every single female i know must participate in social media in some way. sharing a moment of their duck face, some fancy food they are eating, tons of selfies and ego boosting whatever, even the most incredibly humble and relaxed girls i know do it now, its a virus. AWALT.

              [–]1empatheticapathetic 7 points8 points  (3 children)

              I'm UK. But I bet I just don't have friends who post shit like this, so it never appears in my feed/explore. I occasionally find my way to more slutty girls here and there through friends of friends of friends but even then it's not as extreme as OP posts. I think the culture here just isn't as extreme as in the US regarding stuff like that. We're only the size of one US state.

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

              UK here also, just checked Instagram and literally 0 girls I know who use it have any of those pictures OP mentioned, they're either selfies, pictures with friends, or pictures of stuff (Food, tourist attractions, something they found funny, etc). Even the girls who I expected to have those kind of pictures didn't have anything of the sort.

              [–]1empatheticapathetic 5 points6 points  (1 child)

              I think the culture here isn't as hyper sexualised as in the US. I follow some Victoria secret model who I met on a night out once and probably never remembered me 5 seconds after we met. All she does is post this type of shit and even then it's nowhere as extreme as OPs stuff.

              [–]RedsideoftheMoon 2 points3 points  (0 children)

              Lmao I live in one of the biggest cities in the US and what OP is talking about is a rarity in my circle. I can find those bimbos on IG but none of the girls I actually talk to, hang out with, or even bang have tits and ass on their profiles

              [–]diomedes777[S,🍰] 69 points70 points  (56 children)

              I live in a very (read: extremely) liberal part of my city, this is probably contributing to what I'm exposed to. I should add also I'm not necessarily following these women, I'm just browsing Instagram and finding this is the overwhelming trend. Try it, you'll see what I mean.

Apparently it is called finsta. F-ake insta-gram. Worst part, she is already sexually active and already has had a 19 yr old in jail for sex with a minor. Got caught banging in a car by a cop.

                  I know a 14 yo who looks like she's in her early 20s (a solid 8, too). Though I realize she's just a kid whenever she opens her stupid mouth. Special pronouns, pansexual, vegan "cuz da poor animals!" (She lives on a farm, in case it wasn't ridiculous enough on its own) and all the rest of that delusional crap.

                  If you're just browsing instagram accounts like this will be over represented by how their algorithms work. They become popular because of the men browsing insta specifically for pictures like that.

                  It seems really silly when you think about it . . . that people are basically competing to see who is the most liked. It's like a 6th grade popularity contest that our whole society is addicted to. I deleted my FB page last year . . . best thing I ever did.

                  [–]1empatheticapathetic 45 points46 points  (13 children)

                  I go on insta quite a bit (shamefully) and most stuff I see is memes and fitness selfies, but professional pages. I wouldn't know how to find my way into the maze of degeneracy you talk about.

                  [–]diomedes777[S,🍰] 7 points8 points  (12 children)

                  I wish there was a way to show you my phone somehow, I'm on the "explore" page right now, the front page of Insta, and on the top row alone is 3 women in underwear in the mirror. It's bizarre, most probably attributed to who I've been "spying" on recently though.

                  [–][deleted] 96 points97 points  (2 children)

                  The explore page is based on what you follow so im just going to assume you actually follow the people you complain about.

                  My explore page is CAKED with the horror you described in your post op. Some of the girls post shit like this, most are just selfies. Either way, your observation is valid as fuck.

                  Exactly. The more you eat it, the more instagram will give it to you. It all comes down to what you like to eat.

                  You're not wrong. I like how you mentioned a switch flipping. Because that's how I felt about my ex. When she was with me, all of her posts were very tame and none of me as a utility. So all good (from what I saw)...

                  Fast-forward after we breakup and she gets a new bf. I'm bitter and looking for answers because I didn't know how to deal with it (oneitis)

                  Anyway, with this new dude it's way different. Overt cleavage shots, hyper sexualized posts alluding to a bj (on valentines mind you) and continuous posts of her in booty shorts and the like on her timeline video shit they have now.

                  Awalt. Maybe she was more discreet with me or maybe this guy is just as naive as they come and just submits to her as he is currently providing for her, but one thing is for sure, I dodged a big ole atomic nuclear bullet if that's the surprise I was to find if I stayed with her

                  maybe its worse. Maybe he is more beta and cucked than you were in your pre-Redpill days, that she posts such photos. In reality, if he had got blowjobs, there would be no evidence. I also think this maybe to fill the void left by you. Imagine how we validated our oneitis, now we left, they need to fill that gap with desperate overtly sexual content to get validation. May also be to make you jealous.
                  Maybe they become sluts the more validation they get, trying to see how much more they are capable of. But the more I research, the more I realise, the next one they go for will be much much beta than you, or whomever they show, while fucking chad in secret. Heck even in my bluepill days, when my oneitis brokeup with me sending a pic of a guy, I lost my shit laughing at what a pathetic loser that new guy was, just by looking at the pic.

                  Women with the highest cock counts tend to be:

                  sassy/neurotic

                  liberal

                  androgenized (narrow hips, manjaw, short temper)

                  Women with the lowest cock counts tend to be:

                  demure/deferential

                  conservative

                  estrogenic (hourglass figure, neotenous features, nurturing temperament)

                  The amount of testosterone needed to make a woman horny is nowhere near being enough to alter body fat distribution. Most of the sluts I know have exactly the hourglass figure.

                  But it should be said, In this day and age, there's no such thing as no n-count with women that you'd be having sex with. The women who haven't had sex yet are also women you won't be encountering.

                    This. A SHIT ton of face selfies, and group photos with her as the emphasis, it's incredibly hard to find a photo without the poster in it. But not as many asses unless they're a gym chick. But then again, my crowd is the college sorority type. Not the weirdo feminist freakazoid.

                    All social media did was tap into and exploit base human instincts: the need to belong, the desire to be unique, the need for validation, the need for sex.

                    Now that that tool exists you see the hyper-activated state of women flaunting their bodies to attract mates. They also seek this validation to assure themselves of their worth and standing in the social hierarchy.

                    Mostly it can be boiled down to vapid narcissism. These types of women are good for one thing only.

                    The funny thing is man recognized woman's base nature since the dawn of time. The ancient texts are full of examples of men having to check women's animalistic state. Unfettered, rampant hypergamy leads to societal breakdown. Left unchecked, well... you see the results all around you.

                    I should add that one should not hate women for this trait. Men are wired to build, to lead, that shows our fitness. Women are wired to be sexually attractive and choose. Flaunt their ass on the dance floor or flaunt it online. Same shit.

                    Instagram's algorithm is actually really good IMO. What you see on the platform is 100% a personal choice. Unfollow the people who are negative which are giving you a shitty feeling and impression, and avoid the "explore" tab unless you need a specific search if it is suggesting stuff you don't like. You are also able to click the three dots and have it "show fewer things like this" which I have found to be really effective. Edit: some grammar.

                    [–]kaane 65 points66 points  (12 children)

                    5 years ago people used to complain about facebook being toxic and shit. The same thing is happening for instagram now.

                    What people don't realize is that these platforms bring you personalized content, just like you said.

                    My feed is full of good work of photography artists, and almost never see naked butt of random woman. Go figure !

                    That doesn't change the point of this post which is that this is the large culture of Instagram on the whole. Just because you aren't necessarily seeing it doesn't mean it's not happening. If you signed up with a fresh account, it would take you ~5 minutes before you were thrown into the rabbit hole of degeneracy that makes up the majority of the user base of Instagram, I promise

                    [–]Miiich 43 points44 points  (2 children)

                    Good text, I just think missed the point though. Any type of social-media can and will be a self-centred validation bonanza if you use it to validate yourself or others. Instagram or social-media are not the problems, they are just platforms for their users to interact, what kind of interaction exists is beyond the platform and up to the users. Instagram is not the problem. If you only follow friends, artist, nature and other topics of interest it will enhance your experience and maybe life.

                    There is plenty of cool stuff on instagram as well, just as there is on reddit. But it is up to you if you want to go down that rabbit hole.

                    But to make it clear, YOU are choosing to go down the rabbit hole. Now don't pretend you didn't know it was there. And that just makes me wonder what the point of this topic is. Its like you willingly went to a strip-club and are baffled by the fact that there are naked woman there and dudes paying them.

                    Perfect analogy.

                    Then write a 5-page post about it. "OMG guys, I went to a gentleman's club and found that there's a whole culture of women who dance naked and take beta orbiters' money. So much degeneracy! And this is in the GENTLEMANS club! This is what passes for 'gentlemen' today. FML, amirite?"

                    Instagram reflects the current trends of new generation. They express themselves on the street the same way they do it on instagram. This is not news.

                    Yes, your points are valid. Yes the new generation is degenerated. They are fucked up. But with all due respect, can we move to more actionable insights instead of the dead obvious ?

                    I don't disagree that culture is oversaturated with sex and unproductive things and that not following the posts doesn't mean they aren't happening. But honestly, who cares.

                    You are fighting and uphill battle by trying to change culture vs changing yourself and the controllable things in your world. You should only be concerned with things that you have the ability to change. You are swimming upstream if you are mad about the things on Instagram when you are making a choice to follow those pages. Calling a spade a spade wont accomplish anything, but taking advantage of the customization functionality may let you enjoy one of the best social media sites on the internet IMO. I have friends of mine and even family who I like and love that I just don't follow because of the content they post. That simple.

                    I only follow two profiles of drawings and all my few likes (no more than twelve) are on paintings or artistic photos of landscapes, but I still get a 20% of celebrity bulshit, feminism, nude girls, socialism propaganda and, for some inexplicable reason, cakes.

                    [–]BASSH34D 2 points3 points  (1 child)

                    Im not an expert, but maybe its "filling in the gaps". Have you tried the option to "see fewer posts like this"? It works really well. I also think the more active you are on the app and in how many similar pages you follow, the faster the software picks up on it. I follow about 150 tattoo pages so thats basically all the explore tab shows me. My feed used to be lots of models, rave girls, etc, but since ive been unfollowing them all and generally just looking at less, the search feature has cleared up a LOT on its own, and now I think I get shown more men than women tbh. The model/slutty girls are less than 10% of whats in my explore tab if I had to guess, but if you are only following 2 art pages, the system cant be expected to know you love art.

                    [–]edefakiel 0 points1 point  (0 children)

                    You may be right. I almost don't use it. I don't really like social networks. Deleted my facebook some time ago and I only use instagram to upload my own drawings. I have entered the feed maybe ten times, and I didn't even know about this see fewer posts like this option.

                    Those women post those pictures with the fantasy that their Chad will comment/like. It's an advertisement for attention and possibly resources from the highest bidder, who they fantasize as being dominant, sexual, and aggressive. You're just seeing how these girls are without the filter of platitudes.

                    [–]diomedes777[S,🍰] 11 points12 points  (1 child)

                    The thing is I don't think these girls even want Chad to comment or like their photo because they inherently know once he's done that, she has power over him. Once a man has "liked" an instagram photo, he is immediately thrown into orbiter box. No questions asked. They're doing it purely for the dopamine validation. The rush that comes with seeing someone "like" your photo. Whoever "likes" their photo doesn't matter - it's just the fact people are liking it that matters. A girl with 200 followers could have Drake "like" her mirror ass-shot and instantly feel like she now has power over him. Imagine how it is for regular male orbiters.

                    [–]insoucianc 15 points16 points  (0 children)

                    That's not true. Women are receptive to the attention of men they are already physically attracted to and who already have social proof. They're hoping a man with both qualities will contact them so that they extract his resources: sex, time, or money.

                    [–]Mantas_Confid 40 points41 points  (3 children)

                    You have to realize that most of the girls on Instagram (probably all of them) are just there to get validation from orbiters. And that's not bad. You aren't an orbiter, why should you be mad, right? Also, if you have pictures of you doing epic shit with friends and/or girls, it only increases your SMV. Instagram won't disappear, learn to use it to your advantage.

                    I noticed the same about Twitter.

                    The trends are fake. They come pre-loaded with a few thousand copies of maybe 10 different tweets. If real news happens, Twitter is sure to either censor it or alter the trend so that it's misspelled - then flood it with thousands of "haha you guys can't even spell right" to drown out any attempts at human-to-human conversation.

                    We're watching the matrix go online.

                    Something about using the facecam or selfie mode just makes my testicles shrink.

                    Dude stop being insecure over a fucking smartphone app. Hot girls receiving boatloads of attention on the internet it's nothing new. Most of these chicks with 2000 followers or something aren't these narcissistic ice queens TRP makes them out to be. Most of them are just insecure as fuck and post selfies or ass pics to feel good about themselves and get some validation.

                    Even before this shit existed, you think some hottie wasn't getting hollered at and asked out all the time? Suck it up. 90% of dudes out there are losers with no balls anyway. Just set higher standards for yourself so you stick out from the masses and attract women (dress well, lift, live a cool sick life, make good money in your career (if that's your thing) and you're all set.

                    If you're good looking, social media makes getting laid and having a fun sex life ACTUALLY EASIER FOR YOU

                    I regularly bang 2 or 3 girls a month from tinder in the 6-8 range. We always split the bill. I never offer to buy drinks cause I'm a broke college student.

                    Curb your ego, stop being a coward and just learn to enjoy the ride.. Seriously. The hunt is fun and you should stay single in your 20s anyway. Being in a committed LTR will hinder lots of potential life experiences.. For example, you might be less likely to enroll in that study abroad program or go backpacking through Europe over the summer with your friends.

                    Even if a girl does "cuck" you.. Who the fuck cares? Just dump her. Why would you waste your time chasing a girl who wants to fuck some other dude and not you? Doesn't mean you're a loser.. Some chicks just wanna get their kicks too and there's nothing wrong with that.

If we're all out to dinner or at the bar, she will often just take her phone out and start taking selfies on snapchat. It's weird as shit. Like a conversation will be going on and she'll just suddenly start taking selfies. These apps are like drugs.

                    My instagram is for social proof. I've been to 29 countries, I use it to post cool photos I've taken/ take from/on my trips. My instagram is in my opinion quite interesting but I only have a few hundred followers. With that said I've been able to generate interest via instagram with women I know. Show them don't tell them / swapping instagram accounts is a way for them to see that I'm interesting and I travel/do cool shit.

                    The only thing you need for thousands of IG followers is to be a cute girl in a bikini.

                      So, playing devil's advocate here. If you're using it as a vehicle to brag (market yourself, increase your own SMV to females, etc), how is it different than what they are doing? Hot chicks have pictures where they look sexy in bikinis cause that's what dudes want in a women. Dudes have tons of traveling photos, boat photos, photos of them in some position of power (e.g. ringing the closing bell on the trading floor) because that's what women want in dudes. What's the difference?

                      Attention is cocaine to women. Any kind of attention, mind you, not just sexual.

                      A girl who only posts pictures of her face is still crying for attention. She's simply hasn't snorted a line and gotten herself hooked yet (probably because she has deep-seated insecurity about her body). But that won't stop her posting make-over/dress-up/silly hat pics for likes and feelz.

                      Instagram can actually be a powerful tool to aqquire new women especially out of your area. I live about an hour away from the beach for instance and have met up With girls from there by first talking to them on ig. sure it's a validation pump for them. But it is what it is. Things are the way they are and it isn't gona change so use it to your advantage. Here are my ig rules that have netted me some women

                      Have more followers than you follow You need at least 500 followers Get at least 80 likes per pic but +100 is ideal No selfies but pictures of you taken by others of you doing something cool or fun Pictures of you with other good looking girls Pictures of you doing some sort of thing your passionate about Post a new pic about once a month

                      Once your profile is good you can go fishing

                      I use the story function for this. I will watch a girls story and reply to something non sexual non flirtatious. Once they reply I start a convo that is neutral. And escalate slowly. It's easy to have 10 of these going at once. Then some will drop off and some will keep taking and you can get a number. After that it's easy to set a date up. If you have ever seen the inbox of a hot woman you will see how guys literally throw themselves at them. Starting the convo with your so beautiful your so sexy. All you have to do is be regular. And your already different. Just my two cents.

                      This is probably why i'm seeing so much of this shit. It's all two types of women - gym going women who I'd otherwise be interested in, if it didn't turn out they had 20k instagram followers and a profile full of nudity showing off their "gains", and completely broken feminist tattoo-covered cat-loving daddy-issue sluts posing in literal bondage gear with emojis covering their nipples and vagina.

                      What blows my mind even further is that many of these women are in relationships and their boyfriends are "liking" and commenting on these public pictures. I don't even know where to begin on that.

                      Most of these retards think the women are showing off what they have won and actively encourage it. No, idiots, they are trawling for better options. You haven't won anything, except maybe the sincere privilege to buy her shit. Ego is a man's enemy. Don't ever let it whisper in your ear that you have reached an end goal in life and you no long have to work at it. And if your chick is prominently displaying the location of her various holes on the public internet, you have long way to go.

                      Social media is for women, built for women, geared towards the interests of women and curated by women. We should be using it for exploiting beta males and impressionable women for business and business only purposes, in my opinion.

                      If I wasn't using my social media accounts as marketing tools for my music brand, my accounts would have been deleted years ago. Agree that there really is no purpose of social media outside of business functions for men. Personally for me, I've recently stopped interacting with women that I follow. Not about being apart of their validation ring.

                      I would disagree with YouTube but agree with everything else. I use YT for channels like "Kurzgesagt" and "school of life" and other fun shows. YT has so much good stuff, just ignore the garbage.

                      Yeah man, I totally know where you're coming from. I've made posts going on about Instagram and my experience since I've gotten rid of it in January of 2016. It's a strange thing when you go over a year without looking at it, and suddenly sign in and see it from an unplugged perspective. I can feel like an old guy when I'm ranting on about it. I'm not actually an old guy, I'm actually just 20. Deleted that shit when I was 19.

                      You realize it's all just attention-seeking and validation-seeking.

                      People constantly at a battle to tell the world they're so special, that they're "enough", proving that they just simply belong.

                      They brazenly say they don't care what people think of their posts, yet immediately delete them when they don't get enough likes.

                      I deleted everything off my profile before going on a hiatus and you should see how people are suddenly so eager to talk to me in real life since they can't just look me up and stalk my profile to see my latest whereabouts. How much more interesting the conversations with girls are when they can't just recon me from the internet.

                      The look of surprise on their faces when they realize I don't have an Instagram.

                      Another quite curious thing you see, is how uninteresting people seem when you unplug. People are at a constant battle for fame, senseless fame, really. They yearn to be known and remembered by others, others who are equally unimportant as we all are. They think these likes somehow prove their worth, yet it's all an exercise in futility as soon enough they'll all be dead along with anybody who remembered them.

                      Just a couple weeks ago some empty headed hot girl at the gym was being a nuisance, showing me how she just broke the 50k mark in her followers, and I just couldn't even help hiding my disinterest.

                      I just felt a sullen feeling and asked "Aren't you more than just your likes and followers?".

                      I think she had an existential crisis that day.

                      The sad thing, is most people aren't.

                      But hey, the addiction of a little notification here and there can distract them from that fact.

                      I get this extremely depressing feeling when I'm browsing Instagram. All these profiles, these moments in time, all these people posting things in hopes other people validate their existence. All these otherwise interesting people reduced to a static profile with ~300 followers and some shitty uncreative photos of food, selfies, generic scenery and sunsets that nobody gives a flying fuck about. We can hamster all we want about why we use social media, particularly instagram, but at the end of the day it's about social proof and validation and nothing else. There is NO other reason beyond this and business we use it. Want to keep a photo album? Well fucking do it, take photos and put them in a physical album so you yourself can look back on your memories and enjoy them for what they meant to you, because no one else gives a flying fuck, and the brutal reality is those pictures you took on your holiday to see your grandma, those smiling selfies, those gym photos, those pictures of your dog, they all make you look pathetic because you are being compared to celebrities and people of astronomical SMV - all it takes is a girl going from Chad's profile, Bilzarian's profile, a local bodybuilder's profile, to yours and that's it, you're instantly out of the game, thanks for playing. Doesn't matter how good of a person you are or how cool you are, you've willingly reduced your life and masculinity to a few shitty photos that you've hamstered away with "I like them so that's all that matters". You could be an amazing person, but you're sabotaging yourself and your pussy-getting potential by maintaining a shitty, embarassing profile that makes your life look like mundane shit. You're forever accessible and familiar, forever attached to an external, permanent online presence that you are supplicating yourself to and degrading your life to conform to, a profile that anyone can view, there is zero mystery surrounding your life. That's all it comes down to, IMO

                      [–]JFMX1996 6 points7 points  (2 children)

                      I agree man. I was actually just browsing right now for a polaroid camera (just to fuck around with until I get a real DSLR camera) and start actually collecting pictures. I remember my family used to take so many from when we had actual film cameras. Now we just take cell phone pictures, all to eventually get lost on social media sites or the next time we run out of storage on our devices and delete a few hundred.

                      I definitely get you on that aspect of the somber feelings when browsing Instagram. That girl I mentioned in the gym was one I knew since I was 5. We grew up together here in this town, we'd talk back in the day on MySpace about music and later on in school about politics and classic rock and video games or how she'd go hunting or our conservative views.

                      Definitely no oneitis there, but it just makes me wonder how many girls or guys who could be so interesting actually forsake their true, interesting personalities to mimic (at a shitty level) those they see getting tons of likes and followers and attention, in the hopes that they'll receive the same. In turn, on a mass scale, people become knock-off versions of some boring, shallow, generic Instagram model or dude.

                      You are completely right. Especially in the fitness community. Everyone is a wannabe fitness model, everyone has the same photos, everyone has the same vapid smile and product placement and false platitudes they spam every other profile with in order to get more likes and attention for themselves. It's like browsing profiles of sex dolls or something, these people don't even seem human. Shudder.

                      [–]JFMX1996 5 points6 points  (0 children)

                      Oh, man! I agree. Once you follow one, you follow all of them. They're all basically the same variation of another. Both guys and girls.

                      The female fitness vloggers can be pretty funny. I can bet $5 to find any female fitness vlogger and she'll most likely have some very generic vlog about "Hi guuuuuuys! Thanks for tuning in-" "Today, we're gonna go on a full day of eating so I can show you what's in my daily meals!" "Cutting because I have a competition on-" "These new shorts I ordered from Gym Sha-" "Hip bridges".

                      It's all the same, slightly variance here and there. All jumping on the same useless supplements, jumping on the hype train for whatever clothing brand is "hot" at the moment. So prone to being scammed out.

                      This is one of the best things that I've read lately. I subscribe all your words and I've been thinking the same for a long time now. Well done, old sport.

                      The funny thing is that I posted on Facebook: I wanna set the record straight. I thought that Instagram was a catalog of prostitutes.

                      And many of these same whores liked it.

                      Just uninstalled the app about a half hour before coming across this post. It really is a waste of time to constantly post if you're not vain, narcissistic, self-absorbed, self-promoting, and/or have a lot of free time. Those of us with actual lives have no use for such a time suck.

                      Here's the real deal man, the chicks that are posting pictures that are basically their ass with the beanie, posting under the guise of "Look at this new beanie!"

                      They are vapid, pathetic people. This is like the female equivalent of Beta behavior we discuss in men. These girls would be worth pursuing for pump and dump at the very best... probably shouldn't fuck with them at all.

                      The girls that are the real prizes don't need to maintain a instagram gallery of their ass. They know they got it and can get what they like off the web. These girls are just soaking up the validation engine.

                      [–]diomedes777[S,🍰] 3 points4 points  (1 child)

                      I agree, but what I find disturbing is that I could go for years without knowing this about that particular girl. I could enter into some sort of arrangement with any of these girls, not have instagram, and never know that she has 30k followers, is DM'd every hour, and posts photos of her ass daily. That's the thing, girls who I wouldn't have expected to post this sort of garbage are the ones who do.

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

                      That's why you assume all are like this until you know for sure otherwise. It's the right frame to be in anyway. She isn't going to be treated like anything special until she proves she is.

                      [–]NeoreactionSafe 5 points6 points  (0 children)

                       

                      Agreed.

                      Even the early dating websites going back to the 1990's very quickly shifted towards many guys orbiting and very few women getting all the attention.

                       

                      • Hypergamy in nature is very limited.

                       

                      In nature a woman might have the choice of Bobby who lives one mile away and Tom who lives under a mile away in the other direction. More likely a woman knew growing up exactly what her choices were. Maybe in her small tribe and town there were a dozen real options. Hypergamy meant picking the best out of twelve options.

                      The internet and long distance transport (cars) combined with "Agenda 21" approved highly urban "Smart Cities" creates the Hypergamy which allows a girl to choose from literally hundreds of options.

                       

                      The cure would be to recreate the "Small Town" feel on the internet.

                      Allow each guy and each girl to view only one mate choice per day.

                      If both agree to meet then it moves forward, otherwise nothing.

                      What that does is bring it back to a lower density natural state where the roles are more "down to earth".

                      The Feminist female using her full Hypergamy is actually an entirely artificial creation.

                      Hypergamy at this level only exists with modern technology.

                      it's funny. I remember pointing out about a year ago in the comments that you can tell a lot about a girl just from her Instagram profile. if it's a constant barrage of selfies, she's probably boring and of average intelligence with not much to offer, which really is true if you're ever interacted with them. got downvoted to shit by cucks in this sub lol.

                      but yea, Instagram is actually a great tool to weed out mentally fucked women. I always ask for their Instagram and look through it. many times they'll ask why I haven't followed and I'll simply tell them the truth that I don't want my feed filled with their selfies. luckily, I know many girls that are not victims of social media like that.

                      many of these creatures are also so preoccupied with their followers to following ratio, it's quite pathetic to watch. they'll like your photos and follow you, but then unfollow you once you've followed them back lol. just to gain followers and to keep their following numbers low. literally competing for internet points.

                      I mostly use Instagram to post my photography and pretty much follow other photographers and travel blogs though, so my feed is actually decent to look through.

                      Holy shit beautifully written. People here are commenting about this not happening but I hear it all the time, even in MY operating room during MY procedures.

                      Nurses, techs, hell even some of the docs with me talk all this shit about Instagram. I'm married, have three kids, and love my life with my marriage (view one of my posts a while back).

                      Nowadays I truly believe every women under the age of 35 is just incredibly dumb. One of my nurses the other day was just talking about how she hated her husband so much for some petty bullshit and doesn't understand why he doesn't bang her like he used too. My response? "Get a divorce then, fuck". Hers "I can't, we have a prenup". She then proceeded to say she doesn't understand why he doesn't give her attention "but all the guys on social media are begging for it."

                      Alas, he's probably out banging babes fresh outta college (he's a dentist and rolls in it) all the power to him, because he's wife (my nurse) is just an absolute whiner. "I want want want" kind of person.

                      Lessons? Don't get married until late, get off that social media bullshit and live a fulfilling life, and finally, be a man that does whatever the hell he desires.

                      Women don't need a specific target in mind in order to compete with each other. They just imagine their ideal man, envision him as being "somewhere" in the world, and then compete with each other to be fucked by him. This is why you never show a crack in your demeanor. If you happen to get a woman who has convinced herself that you are Chad, you don't want to dispell her illusion. Yes it's superficial and yes she's living strictly in a fantasy world, but if you're good with fucking her despite that, maintain the illusion. She's going to go on living in that fantasy world regardless of what you do. Just don't commit to her because there's nothing real there.

                      I don't get this shit. Why not use instagram to your advantage? Show off your cool life, good body and sense of fashion. I know girls stalk guys the like on social media, be that guy. If you can't, don't use instagram.

                      [–]diomedes777[S,🍰] 6 points7 points  (5 children)

                      Because if we're going to be hyper analytical, which we should be when discussing RP theory, the concept of even having Instagram as a man is counter-intuitive. You can't use it to your advantage because it's working against your SMV even when you think it's doing the opposite. It is made for women, it's inherently female frame, it's made for girls to show off their bodies and for celebrities to show off their lifestyles. It's made for sheep. Your "cool" life only looks that way to you, no one else thinks it's cool unless you're a well known celebrity or a particularly physically attractive person. Shit, I find i'm even more interested in celebrities who don't have ANY social media presence. When I look at their Instagram accounts, I'm getting an insight into their life and the shine and allure dulls. It's unattractive. There is a huge psychological element to it, as i've discussed. You are better off remaining off the grid and absent from Instagram if you want pussy. Men know it's for women, women know it's for women. You are stepping into female frame when you start blasting social media. We are discussing sexual strategy - posting mundane photos of you on holiday or driving an exotic car, which you think are interesting, are not interesting and only work against you when trying to attract women. Your accessibility is what turns her off, and an insight into your non-celebrity life being a simple click away breeds familiarity and the opposite of sexual attraction.

                      I disagree. I created a fake, joke Instagram account where I post photos of my abs, food I make, and gym stuff, with outrageous hashtags and captions.

                      I am an average-looking guy, the only thing I have going for me is that I have a decent body. But holy shit, girls eat all the fake stuff up, and when they look at Instagram they see an interesting person.

                      I'm approaching 5000 followers, and I've gotten laid because I've given girls my Instagram before from Tinder instead of my number. It's instant DHV material.

                      It's like anything, you can complain about it and abstain from it, or you can play their game, put up a facade, and profit from it.

                      Basically. It takes work to maintain, but I'd say the benefits have outweighed the drawbacks.

                      Most important thing to note that is that Instagram is a supplement to - not a replacement for - actual game.

                      I don't agree. I don't really like any photos of girls, certainly not random girls, i also don't stalk their profiles or whatever. They step into my frame when they check my profile, like my photos and whatever. I've met women through instagram that i didn't know before because they messaged me. Not the other way around. My philisophy: every space that is primarily female is a place where you can get pussy. Women are predominant on instagram, so why not be there and use it to your advantage? There is really no downside for me. I don't spent hours checking out instagram everyday, i mainly check my notifications and that's it.

                      Instagram can be an amazing tool for the 1%. The other 99% serves to deliver validation. Until you reach that 1% where you can post content which amplifies your SMV, stay away from Insta and focus on yourself.

                      Tinder inflates their userbase greatly to make the illusion of needing to buy extra services to be seen.

                      Tinder isn't doing it, black hat guys driving traffic to cam sites are doing it.

                      Tinder just looks the other way.

                      My IG is where I post my artwork. Before my LTR GF, during the course of a date and small talk, I just drop the "I sketch a little" and of course she wanted to see the pics.

                      I do make some money off of it, it's an inexpensive hobby to have, but it's pretty gratifying to take some time and clear your head and accomplish something that has personal intrinsic value.

                      So I proceed to show her a few pics. I draw women, and portraits. INSTANTLY, seeing other women, the competition kicks in. I am coy about it all, I have had 'relations' with a majority of them, and in place of flowers, if they were worth a solid few nights, I was keen to draw their pic. NEVER would draw a pic as a 'gift' or as a 'hope she'll accept my offering to her crown and become a beta oribiter on her pedestal.

                      Nope. The drawn pic, if it didn't include a direct cash payment, was usually drawn a month or two after the fact I've used their body for my enjoyment. "I had fun. You performed well. Good job. Here's your prize."

                      So for me, IG has been just another method to pull pussy. I still sketch portraits now for cash, and it's also a good way to keep the 'dread' in the GF alive. I'm forced to interact with clients who want a pic and she rages with jealousy because of it. Good times.

                      Edit: Also, by having a pic I drew of them on the wall, I get contacted at random long after we have finished our jam. Before GF, it has even rekindled more nights. "I was looking at the picture you drew, it's been forever. I miss you."

                      Works like a charm.

                      As has been said many times on TRP. Social media is a tool, but it is one among many in your potential arsenal. Just because it is there doesn't mean you have to use it.

                      If your particular situation allows you to utilize successfully, then go for it. If not, then don't.

                      Deployed effectively it can be an SMV booster/status communicator. Eg: I want to communicate that I am well off, fit, and a good dresser. I travel a lot, so my posts are from exotic places with me looking well put together. And its not always pictures of me. I get good results because of this. Instagram is like a game extender for me because I am basically gaming girls from a long distance. When I meet up with her my profile has already communicated more about my SMV than I could communicate in a meeting without being gauche/looking like I'm trying to hard.

                      Don't hate it, use it as a useful tool. Use it to screen women who you're considering plating (or LTRing). You can learn a lot about her by what she's posting on Instagram.

                      For example, if she posts pictures of her with her friends, of interesting things she sees, her family, etc., then that is a good sign.

                      On the other, perpetual party pics, selfies, bikini shots etc. show some red flags.

                      There's nothing new here, girls trade sex for attention and some more than others (slooooooots). They've just cracked the nut on leveraging social media for said attention.

                      Play the game, use instagram for boosting smv. Put up cool stuff, photo's of yourself in good shape and photos with loads of bitches. After that who cares what the average Joe/Jane does.

                      This is really blown out of proportion. I know of many girls and many of them are definitely ho's but none of them have profiles that are this sexualized and vain. Yes they are vain but they are not so sordid. Also, one of these girls is a camgirl and one is a stripper and still I only get occasonal whoring shots from these girls.

                      [–]onestiffrod 2 points3 points  (0 children)

                      That depends on who you follow and why you use instagram. I personally don't follow anyone I barely know, let alone strangers. And even if they're my friends but they post attention seeking shit, I usually unfollow them and to make it fair, remove them from following me. My rule is simple: if I'm posting something largely because I feel like I need an ego boost, then I won't post, or delete it immediately. A meaningful sharing tool, or a validation dispenser, that depends on how you use it.

                      This post was originally going to be a big guide to using social media, but the Instagram thing had rattled me so I decided to focus on that. You are definitely right.

                      I noticed a trend on Tinder while I was on where these females would post their IG name in their bio. That was a guarantee that they were only looking for pure validation, which they all are to some degree but that was the extreme right of the spectrum.

                      My favorite ones are the hot females (that have always been hot) posting pics and talking about how they used to be called "too skinny" but are now happy with their body. Poor hot chicks :'( I'm sure they're rather be fat. You know you've hit rock bottom when you have nothing to complain about, so you use the fact that you have too much of a good thing to get more attention.

                      Social media is for losers

                      I know that by saying this the hamsters will come out and say that OMG YOU NEED SOCIAL MEDIA IN TODAY'S AGE or I PICK UP 9S AND 10S ON SOCIAL MEDIA ALL THE TIME

                      I tell guys on AskTRP to get off social media and meet/talk to women in person instead of being another orbiting planet in the solar system of whatever woman they are talking to online. And it's like I am asking them to shoot their dog.

                      I don't care. A red pilled man meets women in person. Not by messaging strangers online who probably get 100 private messages a day. Good luck standing out in that crowd

                      As far as your post. It's becoming a disease amongst women. I go to the gym and there are many women with their tripods out filming themselves workout. And funny how it's always butt day for these women. I've never seen them do anything else. 4 butt days a week

                      If you are using it to facilitate business, or to show off a top 1% lifestyle, more power to you. These are the only examples I can think where a man could be excused for using this platform, otherwise you are an orbiter and validation resource with an uninteresting profile whether you like it or not. Get off that app, retain your dignity and your mystery.

                      Well said.

                      Is there a chance perhaps that some of these women don't want to be "validated" as you put it, but want to show off their assets (pun intended) to guys in the hopes of hooking up? I know personally when I post on Instagram I am hoping some potential girls I am interested in will get a peak into an otherwise hidden part of my life/psyche and will subsequently have a less superficial picture of me in their minds. Which would hopefully lead to a better connection next time we see each other in the real world. You could analyze that all day and say "Oh come off it! You're just looking for some pussy." and fundamentally, you'd be right. But hey, there's nothing wrong with wanting to screw a few girls in life.

                      Instagram is for validation, Tinder is for hooking up

                      If you only follow sluts thats what you get.

                      I follow people with travel pictures, as myself. Problem solved.

                      I automate a lot of shit in my life such as liking everyone's posts. It makes people think I'm invested, and liking people makes them think you like them.

                      [–]coinclink 1 point2 points  (0 children)

                      Actually, the meme game on Instagram is way better than any other platform. I go on there and follow meme pages almost exclusively, funny as hell too!

                      The girls I do follow, I would agree with you though. I'm not sitting there liking their photos though... Actually, it's almost all other women who are giving them attention now that I actually checked.

                      near complete nudes of her. Standing in the mirror in bondage gear, a g string up her ass, fingers in her mouth, lying in her bed in an open shirt, bent over in Victoria's Secret, you name it - this profile had it

                      This thread is worthless without pics.

                      That said, the takeaway is "don't listen to what she SAYS, watch what she DOES."

                      [–]jacobg47 1 point2 points  (0 children)

                      I disagree, might be because im quite young compared to most red pillers and everyone my age uses it but it can be very beneficial. I've seen a lot of people make connections with people or become very popular just off their page and it gives them a great platform for whatever they choose. Of course you're going to see girls asses out in pictures, they want you to see that, pretty obvious.

                      [–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

                      1. Women were always like this.

                      2. Stop worrying about what other people are doing.

                      3. I love sluts, sluts are great. Stop blaming them when they were born to crave cock.

                      4. Stop having a negative attitude. Assume a positive stance. Instagram can be a great tool to convey what it would be like to be around you.

                      Although it must be said most of my friends use it for benign purposes

                      I used the Instagram app for a little while and posted snaps of some interesting stuff I saw: flowers, bugs, scenery. It was exactly as you described: I got one like on the 25th picture and absolutely no comments (not that I need any validation).

                      What made me uninstall Instagram was the constant stream of notifications. That shit pisses me off. And yeah, as other people point out, I see a girl from the neighborhood and her face is all pimply but it's pristine as the angel's on IG.

                      [–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (7 children)

                      check out dan bilzerian for how a guy should do it. dude is redpilled as fuck. recreate that. girls know how easy it is for girls to get 5k+ followers. they know guys don't get it the same. so when they see a guy who follows 100-200 people and has orders of magnitude more followers, they're like "holy fuck!" of course it helps being a millionaire, but girls are visual... if they can't see it, it doesn't exist. girls would rather share an alpha than own a beta, so they flock to guys like this.

                      just don't be a beta orbiter. never like/comment on basic bitch pics. the only time you're ever supposed to compliment a girl is privately and immediately after sex. once you're regularly plating her, you can compliment her with shit like "that little black dress looks great... it'll look even better on my floor." it has to be sexual... no beta disney shit. when a guy says that who she is not attracted to, she'll say he's a creep... but if she's attracted to you, that shit gets her wet.

                      Well said. New rp members should also know that there's a lot of leeway to play with as well. Lots of women try to get off that carousel, or try to avoid it. Women are also pragmatic. It's a mixed bag. You don't need to be Dan Bilzerian to get laid. It does help to understand the dynamics at play though.

                      "All women are seemingly, inherently the same person. They all want to be famous, they all objectify themselves, they all conform to some unspoken law of "in order to be accepted here, you must objectify yourself"."

                      Another prime example of AWALT. For those of you that think the girls on their Instagram don't post like this it's because they know they can't not because they don't want to.

                      You choose what you follow. No IG whores in my scroll list. Instead, its stuff like the daily stoic, Jocko Willink, Wim Hof, Elliot Hulse, some friends, etc.

                      Can't say the "inspirational quotes" and all that is particularly essential, but it's not bad for a quick scroll and food for thought a few times a day.

                      Plus, if you ever look to start your own business / passive income stream / etc, depending on what it is, there's a good chance that Instagram / social media marketing could help you out. Not bad to see how others are doing it.

                      [–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

                      Stop generalizing please. you're talking about white women I bet, how many indian/east African/arab/etc etc women do you see on Instagram spreading their ass? very few and in between!

                      So why generalize ALL WOMEN? when in fact its only western white women the culprits

                      I use it for travel photos or exclusive parties/festivals and stuff. Just some select energetic pics to show im doing more shit than the rest and raise the smv, which works for me.

                      [–]tylertgbh 0 points1 point  (0 children)

                      Ive gotta disagree with your premise. Very few of the girls I know and have on instagram have accounts like this. I think this is likely more a symptom of the area you live in and the quality of women/people rather than women in general. Of all the girls I know in person pictures like the ones you describe are rare. Sometimes I see accounts like you describe through girls' Instagram links on tinder. But even those I find through tinder, it's 50/50.

                      Anyways, just embrace it when they're so blatant with their interests. I find it helpful when girls I find on tinder have accounts like that. It acts as a natural filter/flag.

                      When I mentioned on /tinder that I don't use snapchat they ridiculed me, but honestly I'm just not in the mood to ever go on such a vanity fueled app. Way too bothersome.

                      It has gotten so narcissistic on both male and female, I always thought (and I can't believe I'm going to user the word I despise) when men take selfies this is fucking weird to me,

                      a selfie is a fem thing in mind.

                      I have definitely seen some of these sexy shots hahaha. I haven't seen it this bad with women I personally know, but even the so-called goodie goodie girls will have a bikini pic. Hello, you know us guys are degenerates and will masturbate to even un-sexy pics, yet we get called out for being controlling patriarchal assholes for saying anything.

                      I've seen it with especially younger girls (15-16) that I follow because I worked at a camp. Their pics are quite hot and it's clear the reason behind it. Their tits look great in that picture so they post it. They get a ton of likes. Rinse. Repeat.

                      She is 14 for fuck's sake, I go to her house and eat dinner with her and her family and laugh at her when she has to be in bed by 10.

                      Her latest photo is her in a bikini from behind with a blurry, pathetic looking beanie sitting scrunched up on the bed next to her, her ass takes up almost the entire shot and the caption is "loving my new (sponsored brand name) beanie!!", with ~4k likes

                      Well can you really blame a 14 year old? If you were 14, could make a couple of sexy pics and gain some money from sponsors wouldn't you do it? It is clearly the parents to blame.

                      Besides that, lack of social media accounts is also why my current LTR is my LTR. Not even a facebook account. Actually hardly ever uses internet in general at home. Sex pics on Instagram? Not if you are with me. But then we can be lucky how they show you that they are sluts and can't get beyond plate status.

                      I have an instagram because I DJ EDM music and this is kinda true. I have to follow some of these chicks for business relationships but my feed is mostly cars, guns and other shit im interested in I mean there is the occasional titty but who gets mad at that.

                      The rest is spot on though, Ive even seen dudes with lambo's only get like 20 likes. So if you're a dude who wants to be successful on social media you better live a very interesting life or be shitting money
