I went to a small high school a couple years ago (I’m 20 now). I’ve always been more of the quiet type, and I would do things the other girls did so that I can seem cool, such as watching all the TV shows everyone else talked about, etc. One of the things that a couple girls swore by was Tumblr. So in the summer between sophomore and junior year, I finally decided to download it myself.
At first it was really nice, especially for me at the time. I watched a lot of various TV shows and was in a lot of “fandoms”, so it was nice for me to find a community that shared my interests. But over time, the feminist ideals started seeping into my brain. I started thinking that genderfluid, etc. was not only valid but extremely common. I started thinking I was bisexual. I specifically remember thinking that I wish I weren’t white, because I’m not enough of a “victim.”
There are so many problems that this caused in my life. I was sleeping later. I began thinking it was cool and okay to stay in my room all day long instead of talking to my family. I also generated a huge rift between my parents and me, because they were rather traditional and I didn’t want to hear about it. Every time they wanted me to question these SJW ideals, I saw it as a personal attack and refused to listen to their case. And I was always stressed about not fitting in with the tumblr types because I was just a white woman. Everyone else was genderfluid, pansexual and whatever else, and I was worried that I didn’t have enough “labels” that would make me more of a victim.
4 years later, I’ve been brought back to earth. My parents massively helped me get through that time, and showed me that the Tumblr ideologies are not always true. They introduced me to The Red Pill about a year ago, and eventually a couple weeks ago I decided to check out this sub. I feel content in being a white woman now. My relationship with my parents is a lot better, and I tell them almost everything. I’m allowing myself to be feminine and getting better at taking care of myself. In general, I’m a lot happier.
I wanted to share this story to remind us that r/RedPillWomen doesn’t just help us get an Alpha man. It allows us to be our feminine selves without hesitation. It allows us to really work on ourselves without making excuses. It strengthens our relationships with the people around us, because we’re willing to put down our computers and leave our bedrooms. I’m glad I’ve found this sub, and I’m sure my life will continue to improve from here.
