I have some theories myself:
- We are an umbrella term for various subgroups who legitimately hate women (some MRAs & most Incels) and so through lack of understanding and differentiation we just get thrown in with the rest of them. MRA and Incels are part of TRP but the inverse is not true.
- Men of TRP are probably the most vocal about their new found ideology and way of thinking while in the "anger phase", that anger of course being directed primarily towards women.
- It elicits a knee-jerk reaction because it doesn't conform to the norm. I have observed this so many times its not even funny anymore. This part is truly bothersome. For example, when talking to my sister the other day I mentioned how a woman's love for a man (except her son) is very utilitarian; she loves him for what he can do for her. She completely lost it. I never said anything that was offensive and yet was almost immediately labelled as a misogynist. There is nothing inherently wrong or bad about loving conditionally and yet because this is not in line with the Disney happy-forever-after fantasy it's misogynistic? The irony is that that was the exact reason why she left her previous bf. The cognitive dissonance is unbelievable.
- Understanding how women play the game and use the cards to their advantage takes away much of the power they hold in relationships and intersexual dynamics. They can't manipulate you if you see right through their scheme. TRP is a dangerous tool not because it preaches misogynistic propaganda but because knowledge is power. Saying that the jig is up would be admitting that there was a jig in the first place. Labelling TRP as a fringe group of women haters and misogynistic basement dwellers who are outcasts of society and can't get laid is the only way to keep the game going.
