The Red Pill Reaches 100,000 Subscribers! (self.RedPillWomen)

submitted by redpillschoolModerator Extraordinaire

Not entirely related to RPW, but I thought I'd let you all know we got ourselves up to 100,000 subscribers on TRP.

If you want a read, here's my address: http://www.reddit.com/r/TheRedPill/comments/2xwllf/100000/

I always assumed RPW was of comparable size to TRP, or larger. Not until this post did I actually look, I'm sad now.

[–]FlowerAndWillowWorld 22 points23 points  (8 children)

~1/10th the subscribers in half the lifespan, pretty sad. But getting women to take the red pill is an even bigger battle than getting men to take it, and that's saying something.

What is the male:female ratio on reddit. I think that alone will show why we are a smaller group. On top of that women feel they are benefiting from feminism. Why swallow the pill?

[–]FlowerAndWillowWorld 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I don't think the ratio is as skewed toward men as one might think. There seem to be quite a lot of women using reddit in general.

But yeah that's what I'm saying, it's going to be way harder for a woman to take the red pill because most of them think feminism is the red pill. Women tend to be much more firmly rooted in the fantasy than men. Hence why TRP exists in the first place.

They will "benefit" from it until they realized they were nothing more than a sex toy, have zero life skills, and no personality.

[–]FlowerAndWillowWorld 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Which is pretty ironic considering those things are exactly what they think they're combating by following feminism.

[–]SoonToBeMrsHim 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Hey now. I fully enjoy being my hubby's sex toy ;)

[–]RealRational 2 points3 points  (0 children)

as well you should ;)

[–]drumnation 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Right and men have no ideology that protects them... enter red pill.

[–]RealRational 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Men have never had anything to protect them, we've been disposable for as long as humans have existed. If it wasn't TRP it would have been something else, it's long overdue.

I just hope the spread continues at an exponential rate, so much needless suffering that could be avoided.

[–]dragontx 15 points16 points  (4 children)

Don't feel sad. I'm subscribed to both TRP and RPW. The ladies here are well grounded and give outstanding advice. I enjoy reading the materials in this subgroup as much as TRP. Keep doing what you do and you'll see your subscription numbers go up.

[–]RealRational 1 point2 points  (1 child)

You misunderstand, I'm sad because I just realized the pool of datable women is only 10k, for the world. Most of them are already in relationships, so it's probably like 1k, then you figure they gotta live within a hour of me, and we're down to MAYBE 1.

[–]vintagegirlgame 3 points4 points  (0 children)

All it takes is one... Just don't get ONEitis!

[–]LadyLumen 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Agreed. I think our numbers are low because more people on reddit are male, and because in the world of dating - men are screwed over waaaay more than women. As someone else said on TRP, if we lived in a halfway decent society, TRP wouldn't even exist.

[–]RealRational -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I don't think there are more men on reddit as a whole, though I've never seen any statistics on it. Don't think any exist since accounts don't ask for gender. But there are more women in the total population than men, so assuming 50/50 use, there should be more women on reddit as a whole than men.

[–]Rougepellet 1 point2 points  (1 child)

My theory for this ia that with feminism, men are getting screwed over a lot more. Being fed lies and becoming more beta as the generations go along. In some men, something begins to stir in them. Maybe their inner natural maaculinity got fed-up of being surpresses and ignored. So they begin to search and stumble unto trp. With feminism, the vast majority of women believe they are greatly benefiting so why bother searching for something else. They'd have to sense something was wrong and begin to seek out rpw or anything similar (which happena a lot less than it does in men). Also, the manosphere is alot bigger and more developed than any female equivalent that exists (is there wven any female equivalent?). Im tired so my grammar and structure is of but i hope my ideas were competently conveyed and understood.

[–]RealRational 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You're understood, there is "taken in hand", which is a community that predates RPW. Though it's not very well known either, and I've never seen a female on RPW who had heard of taken in hand.

[–]cxj 1 point2 points  (1 child)

"It's not the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog"

Or something....

srs doe, not every community is going to make it big, but that doesn't make it a "failure." My favorite forum of all time had about 250 people on it. I once saw one of my favorite bands play to a much smaller than usual crowd, and their vocalist made an awesome speech about how he thought it was ridiculous that a show be judged by how MANY people were there, rather than the connections and energy of the show. Looking back, he was right, some of the best memories of my life are playing to 20 kids in a garage or living room or alley way, and some of the shows I played in front of thousands of people were fairly forgettable in retrospect.

RPW may be small, but it makes a positive difference in all of YOUR lives, and that's what counts.

Also, as far as wanting it to be more popular, be careful what you wish for.... RPW being small may be a blessing in disguise :)

[–]RealRational 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Doesn't make a difference in my life, but I also never said it was a "failure". But the more women who take the pill the larger the dating pool becomes, the plate pool is plenty large, I can find plates no problem, it's finding a girl worthy of taking beyond plate status that's the challenge.

[–]StingrayVC 24 points25 points  (10 children)

Congratulations, redpillschool. May we touch as many women's lives here.

[–][deleted] 19 points20 points  (9 children)

It's hard to imagine that though, because women have to accept that their greatest asset is their youth. And that most of them wasted it on the cock carousel. With men, there is constant room for improvement. For women their is to, but in different in a different way, and the most important thing is somewhat out of their control. And if they are older (and finally waking up) then most of their SMV is gone, and facing that reality is too bitter a pill for most.

I'm thankful I figured it out young and have a wonderful husband. Many women are putting off marriage and growing up really, to just ride the cock carousel, not realizing every notch on your bedpost makes it harder to find a good mate.

[–]LadyLumen 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I don't think talking about the wall is bad for women. It's actually very good for women. Knowing reality helps you ...well...adapt to reality.

For all these guys who claim that older ladies can be hot too, I know they are full of shit. Because if they were allowed the choice between a 20 something year old and a 30 something year old, they would go for the former.

Understanding the wall doesn't mean women should try to spend forever living in their youth, and then be bitter and sad once they lose their youth. It just means that women get a warning that they need to spend their youth wisely.

It's like if someone gave you a million dollars. But the catch is that all the money disappears after 10 years. However, they didn't tell you that last little catch. So you start spending the money on luxuries instead of practical goods. 10 years later all the money disappears and only then do you realize that you wasted it on stupid shit.

And what are the post wall women to do? Usually when postwall women come to TRP or RPW looking for sincere advice, they are given considerate, useful advice. Knowing your limitations can help you achieve your goals.

For instance, once a woman knows that she's beyond the wall, it will help her realize why all those studs she's trying to chase either aren't interested, or are just keeping her around for sex. Understanding the truth helps her develop more realistic expectations, such as "maybe I should date an older guy in his 40's, maybe I should be more open to types of guys I wouldn't have considered before."

Also a woman can always improve herself. Even if you are 35, if you are slim, fit, have a nice personality, and actually have some domestic skills - you'll be a much better catch than many of the young women today who look like tattooed burritos (a very nice analogy I got from Roosh).

Sure. There's a positive spin on this: It's never too late in one's life to make a change in one's values or behaviors. More importantly, it does no harm to spread ideas/teaching, share field reports, and set examples for women and girls who are in their youth.

I am happy to have stumbled upon this subreddit after having heard of The Red Pill. "Becoming a Red Pill Woman" (as one might call it) is a journey, and I use Red Pill Women to prepare myself, practice, and take on life as the journey progresses. Road bumps and slumps are to be expected, but essentially, there's nowhere to go but forward.

Agreed. It's an interesting perspective being one of the younger on this sub. You know what's funny is so few people marry young these days, especially in California where everyone is super career focused, that people are confused when I say "I'm his wife". Like they think I'm lying. Even at the doctors office! I've been called girlfriend, sister, etc.. but no one assumes wife. It's just amusing to me.
You know what's really satisfying about being a RPW? When all our friends (we pretty much share all friends) say they hope to one day have a relationship like ours. People notice. They say it's the happiest relationship they know of. And I really have to credit learning to submit, to listen more, and to be open and let him take care of me. It's pretty amazing what these changes can do.

Oh and pretty dresses (I used to be more a tomboy, but found out he LOVES dresses on me) and some wearing of makeup/ growing my hair out doesn't hurt!

This truly inspires - thanks for sharing. You show them how it works. They see it in practice. Wishing you and your husband only the best! (。・ᴗ・。)ノ♡

[–]LadyLumen 1 point2 points  (3 children)

People say that to me too. The trick is that I actually listen to my boyfriend half of the time. Considering a person's feelings who you are dating works wonders.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Wait, what? You mean listening to your boyfriend hallf of the time is considering his feelings?

[–]LadyLumen 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Def more than half, I was being a bit facecious.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Just stumbled here from a post in TRP and wanted to comment. As a young dude, one of the most attractive woman I've ever met is a lady in her mid 40s I work with. She keeps herself in good physical health and just has the best sarcastic attitude ever. Her mentality is a huge turn on. She even bitches in a way that's endearing. I'd definitely settle down with someone who had a mindset like she does.

Age is a huge factor, but eventually I'll want a life partner. Compatibility and attitude make a huge difference.

Edit: I wanted to add that a big part of this is how she rarely finds fault in me. If I'm late she says "traffic must have been bad" before I can. If I do something wrong, she'll call the manager a bone-head, often to their face, for the policy in the first place. It's like I can do no wrong in her eyes. And that makes me want to do no wrong. To protect her, and speak well of her to others. She's naturally my first mate and it makes me want to lead the ship on a true course.
