Men's Rights[x-post MGTOW] It appears some kind of flu is going around. Yesterday, Dilbert Comic author, Scott Adams, wrote a blog post espousing some highly concentrated Manosphere ideological analysis. Even brusquely brushes off the wage-gap and identifies the West as a gynocentric culture. (self.TheRedPill)

It appears there's some kind of flu going around. In the same article, titled "The Global Gender War", Scott Adams:

  1. Clearly identified the West as a gynocentric culture.
  2. Claimed there is a war going on between female-dominated and male-dominated societies.
  3. Dismissively brushed off the Gender Pay Gap as drivel.
  4. Unapologetically stated the male sexual imperative, and claimed affinity for masculinity, and I quote: "The top ranked men have multiple wives, and the low-ranked men have ... no access to women. ...Men like hugging better than they like killing, but if you take away my access to hugging, I will probably start killing ... and I make no apology for it"

Apparently he's been writing on various manosphere topics for a while now too. I think when people take risks like this, they should be rewarded with gratuitous incentivization in the form of CPM traffic boosting, and if at all possible, donations with kind words attached. One or two kind words will go a long way, because this man is not doing something like this with a profit motive; it's a labour of principle or passion.

Women have made an issue of the fact that men talk over women in meetings. In my experience, that’s true. But for full context, I interrupt anyone who talks too long without adding enough value. If most of my victims turn out to be women,I am still assumed to be the problem in this situation, not the talkers

Wewlad, that's some stone cold truth right there.

[–]MortalSisyphus 157 points157 points [recovered]

Can you imagine a situation where – on average – the people who talk the most do NOT get interrupted the most?

LOL. I can tell already I'm gonna like this guy.

[–]A_DERPING_ULTRALISK 128 points129 points  (2 children)

He's been cutting to the core of things for years through his comics.

My 2 cents is that he's finally old enough, and made enough money, that he doesn't give a shit anymore what his PR situation is. He's finally free to say what he really thinks.

[–][deleted] 23 points24 points  (1 child)

The best part is that he's a prime example of a public figure that can speak RP truths in a PC manner, which brings people closer to accepting these ideas. Truthfully, if men talked in public the way we do here on TRP, the result would be polarizing.

No shit!

[–]iSnORtcHuNkz69 4 points5 points  (14 children)

Getting interrupted is the whole point of a conversation. you spew shit out of your mouth until some one recognizes and acknowledges its relation or non relation.

If you dont like getting interrupted, start having conversations through text, and email. - to all the women and cry babies out there

[–][deleted] -2 points-1 points  (13 children)

Sounds like fiancee. She keeps talking until I have the audacity to interrupt her. Basically like she's laying bait for me to offer myself for her to get pissed off at.

[–]ANUS_CONE 58 points59 points  (5 children)

Sounds like she needs to become not your fiancée.

[–]Kalidane 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Yup - sort out that shit test or say goodbye.

There's nothing wrong with over-talking someone once they are clearly wasting your time. They can then shut up and listen or the conversation is over.

It feels weird/rude the first few times, but once you are at the stage of having no patience for nonsense it's fine

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Interested in hearing your reasoning.

[–]ANUS_CONE 6 points7 points  (0 children)

If she doesn't respect you enough to listen to you at this stage, it is only going to get worse for you after the I do's are said.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Interesting. Why would you say that?

Edit: We fuck all the time and she supports my goals. I feel like it would just be ignorant of me to ask her not to be a woman.

[–]interestedplayer 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah, did you by chance also notice the white horn growing out of the top of her head? She is locking down your commitment...

5 months later, did you get married, still engaged or have you moved on? Curious to know

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

I now have the utmost respect for this guy because he uses the term "DAESH"

[–]FeeFeeFeaster 56 points57 points  (56 children)

I have twice blogged on the idea of siphoning out the women and small kids from the Caliphate and leaving millions of innocent adult men to suffer and die. I don’t recall anyone complaining about leaving millions of innocent adult males to horrible suffering. In this country, any solution to a problem that involves killing millions of adult men is automatically on the table.

I'm wondering if he got any negative feedback from those two blogs he mentioned.

Edit. He says:

I don’t recall anyone complaining...

Did nobody offer an alternative? I wouldn't be surprised, I'm just looking for someone to come along and say they object.

[–]2rp_valiant 26 points27 points  (55 children)

The alternative is being discussed currently - cutting off ISIS funding by sanctioning the UAE where most of their money is coming from. Fucking dirty Arab scum supporting the slaughter of innocents from their ivory towers.

[–]Vovamas 37 points38 points  (9 children)

That's not gonna happen. It's actually mentioned in the article as to real reason Middle East is such a hotspot of terrorism. Top men in those countries ( SA, UAE, Qatar, etc) get all the pusay they want - multiple wives and probably mistresses too. Bottom men can't even see a female face behind burqas. Naturally, angry, sexually frustrated man who is bored with his life and has nothing to lose will turn to his only hope - radical Islam. I don't think tbh, that terrorism will be such a problem in near future. Look at the west - we got plenty of sexually frustrated incels too, who only occasionally go on mass shooting sprees, and that is mostly in US. We got porn, food, entertainment and various means of escapism to keep all the basic instincts and ego satiated. Once those developments make it into Middle East, wahhabism and radical Islam will lose its ground.

I'm not even sure that this is the actual problem. If you're a Saudi national, life can be pretty sweet overall - it's just that Saudi society including religion is basically controlled by retards (for more on this: http://muttawa.blogspot.de/), and retards only produce more retards.

There's a reason 15 of the 19 terrorists who were responsible for 9/11 were from Saudi-Arabia - not because this country is a breeding ground for desperation, but because it's one for a mindset that considers suicide bombing hip even when you aren't desperate.

The funding however is an entirely different thing - that way you can produce problems without having to produce retards yourself. Which is also why the other Gulf monarchies become a problem, not only SA.

[–]Vovamas 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Well, that's another reason. Middle east has been a factory for making suicidal religious fanatics since Middle ages. Just read up about hashishins

[–]MyReddit4 9 points10 points  (1 child)

What if the burka wasn't about controlling women, but about controlling men?

They fill your mind and soul with a Western-hating causedujour and the warm promise of a hero's death and 72 virgins waiting. They can't miss what they've never had - anything on the other side sounds better than sand, hot sun, and a black bee keeper outfit.

The ideal useful idiots for their master's plans.

[–]getRedPill 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Have you ever seen how feminists, SJWs, progressives and western women in general seems to don't care a dime about burkas and woman oppression in muslim cultures. It's mostly non-SJW non-progressive western males that seem to care more.

[–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Or when will the radical truth influence the west, it will be caos beyond repair. Actually immigrants in europe aren't running to become videogame addicts like our youth, but rather to raping german girls. http://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/6527/migrants-rape-germany

I wonder who's frame is the stronger who will captivate outers.

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

The Islamic movement is mostly about fighting all this stuff: porn, music, clubs, drinking, drugs, entertainment of any sort. It's all forbidden (haraam). Everything is haraam.

[–]M3_Drifter 1 point2 points  (0 children)

multiple wives and probably mistresses too

Yup... Tag The Sponsor is still live and direct btw.

[–]weirdnamedindian 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You talk as though food and porn is something the breeding ground of terror - Saudi Arabia - does not have already.

Behind those closed doors, they have access to everything.

Terrorists are not poor incels who have nothing to live for - your average terrorist is mostly a well educated middle class pisshead, who drinks, gets wasted, sometimes gets women, sometimes doesnt but is mostly bored with it all and then finds religion.

They are not poor desperados with nothing to live for.

They are men who want glory and dont see the point of a 9-5 work hour and slaving away for years so they can afford a holiday to the Caribbean after 25 years.

Believe you me, if the Pope tomorrow called for a crusade against these retards, you will have a million well educated men sign up within 3 hours of the announcement.

[–]Endorsed Contributorleftajar 7 points8 points  (4 children)

France is the #2 global exporter of weapons per capita, and the UAE is their #1 customer.

I agree that the Arabs are scum, and I think that the French have been idiotically blind to unintended consequences.

[–]2rp_valiant 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Ethics and arms dealing have never made comfortable bedfellows.

[–]EnragedParrot 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Do you have a source for this? I'm not doubting you, but would like to have the stats for myself. Especially interested in what's exported (so what does "#2 exporter of weapons" really mean?)


[–]Endorsed Contributorleftajar 0 points1 point  (1 child)


A simple google search yielded that. Not sure what it means; probably a lot of small arms (Fabrique Nationale, ak, FN makes a lot of submachine guns and assault rifles), and probably some larger, last-gen hardware.

a. It's not an "arab thing", it's a rich Saudi thing - stop twisting my words. For a start, most Arabs couldn't afford to help ISIS even if they wanted to. Many rich Saudis support Wahhabism. b. I'm from the UK and live in one of the highly Muslim areas. Most Muslims are decent people, as are most Arabs that I've met.

It's pretty well known that rich UAE Arabs are funding ISIS, as well as other terror groups. You remember Osama Bin Laden? He was an heir of the Bin Laden construction empire, and used that money to fund the Taliban.

Scott Adams has been saying whatever the fuck he wants for years now. He's also been able to defend his opinions eloquently enough that he's gotten away with it.

Expect him to get 50+ unsubstantiated accusations in the next few years just like Bill Cosby.

This man is challenging the masters. By showing he's not afraid, he makes THEM afraid and sooner or later we will see their response. The cluster of men who benefit from an anti-male society won't give it up willingly.

[–]Redpillc0re 44 points45 points  (3 children)

I think he's smarter than most and knows how to avoid swj honeytraps. I bet he has already a contigency plan.

[–]Senior Contributorexit_sandman 52 points53 points  (2 children)

The guy was smart enough to do what few people manage to do: he kept his piehole shut about his actual opinions until he was sure that uttering them couldn't really hurt him anymore.

[–]Senior Contributorcocaine_face 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Truly one of the best lessons of TRP, and why publicly, you should never support TRP, unless you're powerful enough that it won't hurt you (and my guess is that we have maybe 5-10 readers, tops, who fit in that category. If.)

Not only that but you'll find the "masters" such as the incredibly wealthy and powerful to be redpill at the core. I mean come on, does anyone really think the world's greatest, smartest and most capable people in the world that rule kingdoms (sometimes literally) have an exception when it comes to controlling the awful hypergamous nature of women?

[–][deleted] 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Yes redpill. But far beyond, they are dark triads. They have given up ethics for gain.

I can't blame them. But i would hang them, as they would do the same to me, if they were a problem to me. Just as they would, socially, politically and phisically.

I'm italian, i really had sympathy for Berlusconi. I'd still hope he would get in jail the sooner the better since he was detrimental to the average male like i was ( and since i know he would get me in jail if he was sure i would be a real hassle to him, whatever the righteousness of my ideas ).

The battle between the 0.001% and the rest is not a matter of sexuality ( which we share ) or ideological ( aka redpill, which we MAY share - hell most trp readers are betas in enlightenment progress - like me ), just a matter of social standing.

Power is the real drive of reality - Ethics is a contract between creatures similar in power. That's why it's said that "power corrupts".

No1 gives a shit about smashing a fly.

Sympathy =//////////////// empathy.

I'm sure our blue pill overlords have a lot of sympathy for us, however. Our society is not exactly gyno-centric, it's gyno-centric toward the 90% of males, where it start to soften, until becoming cock-centric around 98% ( statistics made up of course, just to represent grossly my personal idea ). Wether you try to join the top or fight it... same mechanics will arise, in different ways.

This is not a good era for morality anyway, unless you can win the public with it while not angering the top.

I do think Nietzsche was right with his beyond-morals uberman... our time seems to spell it everywhere. If you aren't able to laugh about the world, yourself and others, you will make little gain. ( laws of power ofcourse still apply - i was referring to the emotional best state. )

[–]-Luthe- 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They are redpill. They are Alpha. Which means they will do what's best for themselves. Redpill material in the mainstream is safe as long as it doesn't offend anyone and cause a huge media firestorm. And even then, as long as the target holds frame (see: ProteinWorld controversy, Donald Trump), they will emerge unharmed or even improved for it.

[–]CornyHoosier 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Liberal media. Universities. HR Departments. That pretty much sums up the bastions of misandry that are influencing the west.


I can't begin to tell you how much I hate HR. They're all no talent hacks who are too stupid to get a real job. Human resources monkeys are up there with "holy men" as a way for families to give the retards of their genetic tree something productive-looking to do.

[–]kjuca 5 points6 points  (11 children)

What did Bill Cosby do to challenge the masters?

[–]AurelianWay 38 points39 points  (2 children)

He advocated for traditional male role models & chastised the state of single motherhood in the black community. I read that he was also critical of the Obama administration (behind the scenes). The left leaning MSM just spun the sexual assault claims to discredit him as he has a lot of wealth & influence.

I not trying to paint him as a saint. I wouldn't have wanted him around my daughter. However, most of the women that were coming out of the woodwork were aspiring actresses who were well aware of the "casting couch" method employed by many directors & producers. If they had sex with these producers , they might get a break in the industry or a part in a production.

Since the current gyno-centric climate encourages women that a regretful sexual encounter is also considered rape (plus a payday lawsuit from the wealthy Cosby) it is pretty easy to see why he was singled out & attacked.

[–]kjuca 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Oh yeah, I remember that now. I guess the hit job worked because I forgot all about that.

It wasn't roofies, he handed out methaqualone, a recreational drug that was popular in the 70s.

[–]1aguy01 8 points9 points  (4 children)

[–]1AmlanceJockey 30 points31 points  (3 children)

The whole cosby affair never made sense to me. Celebrities do not have trouble bedding beautiful women. Hell, nfl players are given advice on how to deal with their new found access to thousands of top tier women. The media expects me to believe that a rich and famous man has to resort to rape in order to have sex? Yea fucking right.

[–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (0 children)

The last person who needs rape is the guy who can go from city to city and have several women offer themselves up to him.

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (1 child)

True, same as the Dominique Strauss-Kahn case.

[–]destraht 2 points3 points  (0 children)

What was very odd about that is she described the supposed cum in her mouth as if she didn't know what it was.

[–]McLarenX 27 points28 points  (1 child)

The problems start with the Western world being too peaceful. Men are not being killed en masse in war and women don't have the fear of being killed and raped by an invading force, so fears are manufactured in their own minds in order to feel comfortable. And they still choose men selectively as if the undesirables are invisible to them (weaker males who would have died in battle)

We've had thousands of years to adapt to the dynamic of men dying in battle and women being taken as prize. But of course, SJW will have you believe there is no such thing as genetically determined behavior or intelligence. Apparently the reason why we have no sub-saharan African all-female think tanks is because of white male "oppression" (another manufactured enemy)

[–][deleted] 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Political correctness is literally a method to hide the truth, it has nothing to do with feelings when you look at it for what it really is.

What you just said is true but you can never say it because of the thought police, sorry I meant PC Police.

[–]thismorphia 14 points14 points [recovered]

Is it just me or does the red pill seem like it's full of IT professionals? Geek who later got good careers and money? Anecdotally there's this guy, the Linux one from yesterday and many stories here involve the playboy life being supported by freelance or high end programming.

[–]Senior EndorsedMattyAnon 33 points34 points  (2 children)

IT professionals are classic beta bait for women. Introverted, high earning, potentially charming and funny but very rarely outgoing and "alpha", highly likely to be sold on the female hitting-the-wall-I'm-not-that-girl-anymore horse shit.

And most of all... intelligent and open minded enough (and not socially duped enough...) to see the whole gender landscape for what it is.

Disclaimer: obvious bias ;)

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Programmers also have huge dongs

[–][deleted] 11 points12 points  (6 children)

I think a lot of this is just from being on reddit. Think about college. Go into a political science class and sit in the back and you'll see buzzfeed, Facebook, instagram, etc... Next go to engineering. Facebook, buzzfeed, reddit. Now go to a programming class. Reddit. Linux Forums, etc...

Also, IT professionals are the types of guys who usually have low access to women. The time in most peoples' lives when they open up and gain confidence with women... college, and these guys spent it in classes with 95% nerdy guys. Made friends with 95% nerdy guys. Then joined the workforce with 95% nerdy guys spending most of their time alone. Low access to women plus a job title that isn't exactly a panty dropper. Who is going to feel desperate enough to go out and look for help? IT guys. Who is already on reddit? IT guys.

Seriously, do you know how much easier my social life has become since I went from engineering to medicine? From a field and workplace dominated by men to easy exposure to 20+ eligible women every single day? It's no wonder so many guys felt like the world was having a big orgy without them. I never would have sought out TRP if I had been a bio major who went straight into medicine. It would've been easy enough already. I would've accepted my stance as a skinny, average height, somewhat attractive guy who could pull a 5-6 for an LTR. TRP is filled with the most desperate guys because they're the ones who aren't complacent.

[–]2awalt_cupcake 1 point2 points  (4 children)

Programmer here. Got into it in middle school. Was encouraged to go to college. I'm 23 and I expect to graduate this year. Do you have any advice on what I should do for the health and happiness of my life? I've already invested so much on a career that is a negative hit on my SMV. I am invisible when I talk about what I do for a living. The social circles are small.

Besides joining clubs and getting into new hobbies, I feel that I set myself up for social & women failure.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I am invisible when I talk about what I do for a living.

Want to combat this? Just act interested in your job, even if you're not. You know who is perceived as having a shitty job? The guy who says he puts in his 9-5 and can't wait to get out. Act excited about it. Phrase it in a way that sounds far more exciting than it really is. For instance, I was an engineer before I went to medical school. Instead of saying, "I sit around and play with CAD all day, barely see anyone aside from my 50 year old boss, and want to quit as soon as possible," I would say, "I design armor systems for Army vehicles." I would talk about going to field tests (which happened twice in my time there) rather than my countless hours in front of a computer. People would walk away jealous of my job, but I would've preferred to be almost anything else.

The social circles are small.

This is where clubs and hobbies are important. It sucks when you're young. 23 and straight out of college is really tough on the guys (and even girls) who have no one they can hang out with through work. You have to be a bit more aggressive with your friendships. Find a lifting partner. Don't hesitate to host things for people in your clubs. Don't hesitate to elevate the friendships.

I feel that I set myself up for social & women failure.

You put yourself at a disadvantage, but think about the most alpha/social/outgoing guy you know. Do you think he would be a failure with women and social life if he were in your shoes? If you're motivated, you'll figure it out.

[–]2awalt_cupcake 1 point2 points  (1 child)

You know who is perceived as having a shitty job? The guy who says he puts in his 9-5 and can't wait to get out.

That's an excellent point. I used to be enthusiastic about it but you can literally see their vagina's drying up when you start talking about computers. I should make it sound cooler and leave it at that.

You have to be a bit more aggressive with your friendships.

I've never heard of this so I cannot wrap my head-around this concept. Also, through TRP I realized friends aren't worth getting close to. It's only you, yourself, and your dick. Even your friends turn on you. Law of Power "appear friendly" is important but I don't want to get close. Or rather, I'll let them think they're close to me in someway that I know doesn't affect me at all.

Do you think he would be a failure with women and social life if he were in your shoes? If you're motivated, you'll figure it out.

Your entire reply screams "awalt_cupcake, you have a shit attitude" and you're right. I need to make the most out of what I have and advertise like I'm living the best life.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think you're getting it. Emphasize the best parts of your job. You do shitty stuff all day, but what's something that's cool? Do you get to see what co-workers are looking up online? Dish out the hot gossip, girls eat that shit up (e.g. "seriously, until you have everyone's search history right in front of you, you don't realize how fucked up people are. For example..."). Do you make a lot of money? Emphasize what you are doing with it without saying anything beyond, "it pays well." Maybe you are looking to buy a house, a new car, make some investments, talk about it (but only surface details, she doesn't need to know your whole portfolio).

Last year I did boring stuff all day. 95% bench research. Interesting to me, boring as shit to everyone who isn't a biologist/engineer. I saw two people at most every day, and they were both middle aged men. However, every once in a while I got to travel and work on business development. What do you think I spent more time talking about, my desperate yearning for companionship and a room with a window, or getting drunk in Miami with a Nobel Laureate and a bunch of venture capitalists? My latest failed experiment, or getting cursed out in front of 100 people by a guy worth over 100 mil? Present the highlight reel of your life. The truth is, if you're pushing hard and moving forward with life then you'll have enough interesting moments for a night of conversation. I've told the same stories over and over again, but I get a little better at doing it every time. Just make sure you're not telling the same stories in front of the same people.

As for friendships, I completely disagree. All you have to do to keep a friend is bring more to the table than you take away. Friends are far more reliable than significant others, and they should be a vital part of your life. Yes, your worth to a friend is the same as with women. You are being judged by the value you bring, however, friendships are more stable than relationships because they require less commitment. Value your friendships, just be mindful that you're still adding to the pot or they will turn on you. A solid friend group is the foundation of any young man's life.

[–]CynicInChief 0 points1 point  (0 children)

what I should do for the health and happiness of my life? Health is fairly easy, eat clean and exercise. Being a cubicle monkey is terrible on your physical and mental health if that's all you do. Exercise to keep yourself strong and have a life outside of work to keep yourself sane.

The temptation is strong to eat fast food for lunch (easier to get and you don't have to make it yourself), sit on the computer and veg out after you get home (video games, movies, reddit, etc), and not get involved in anything besides work (socially awkward, tired after you get home, expensive to go out to bars, etc). I did this the first year of programming work and it will quickly turn you into a hollowed out shell.

Unlike a job with physical labor, an office worker has to fake it by running, swimming, or lifting to keep strong. You will feel very tired at the end of the day, but the fatigue is all mental. Check your mind out and do something physical instead. Bring your lunch to work or eat at home instead of going out. It's much cheaper and healthier and will help you feel better.

I've already invested so much on a career that is a negative hit on my SMV. Ignore your SMV for now and focus on your happiness and confidence. As you improve your life and situation your SMV will rise and you will become more attractive. I'm in this situation right now and I've gone MGTOW for now until I further improve my life. You don't have to go that far, and if you're already working on improving your game than I wouldn't stop, but I would make it a secondary priority.

I am invisible when I talk about what I do for a living. You have three options when it comes to talking about your career: 1. Don't. Change the subject, be vague ("Oh, this and that."), or tease her about caring about what you do. 2. Make it interesting. This is often what I do and RP-Doctor's response is perfect about this. 3. Lie. If you write a blog, say you're a writer. If you can play an instrument, say you're a musician. If you want an LTR, this probably isn't the best solution since the lie will eventually come out, but for quick lays this is an easy and simple solution. Tell her what she wants to hear.

Besides joining clubs and getting into new hobbies, I feel that I set myself up for social & women failure. What you do for a living will never make you a social/women failure. You can be a homeless bum and still be able to have friends and get girls. You will only become a failure if you don't try at all or if you refuse to learn what it takes to succeed (i.e. betas). You will have to manually learn things and struggle to master them that come naturally and easily to others (natural alphas).

Join clubs that interest you. I love roller coasters and caves, so I joined a coaster club and the local grotto. The grotto is mostly guys, but I've expanded my social circles and learned how to make friends with complete strangers (important!). The coaster club meets rather infrequently, but there are a lot more girls. You'll have different interests, but find people who like the same things you do and forge friendships.

Well, it's one of the main high earning jobs left, and you can do it with a reasonable turnaround of time, plus I feel if you're on a place like reddit, you're going to be more likely to be in tech in general.

The world is going to software, so I'm not surprised to see that a large amount of our userbase and Reddits as well is in tech.

Honestly, if you want a white collar job at this point (and you're under 45), I feel you should probably be able to program. You'll be far more valuable to any employer if you can. Or be able to do your own thing easily enough.

Because somewhere along the line somebody drew a line between intelligence and masculinity. Growing up we weren't allowed to be smart and alpha, so they told us to be beta and a lot of us obliged. Now we're older, stronger, successful and fuck if we're going to be treated badly and exploited by a bunch of entitled post-wall women.

Which is insane because Feynman and many "nerd heroes" were poon hounds and alpha is fuck in every way.

Men like hugging better than they like killing, but if you take away my access to hugging, I will probably start killing

I loathed women back in my Blue Pill days (teenage years to early 20's). Why? For this exact reason. I was doing exactly what society told me to do to get a woman and it did not work. I saw the men that society told me were "bad" and they were getting all the women.

Ever since I went Red Pill though my perception and interaction with women has sky-rocketed. I have taken them off the pedestal and am treating them like actual human beings instead of little goddesses.

Remember awhile ago that kid who went on the shooting spree because of "dumb slutty women" or something along those lines? That kid desperately needed strong male guidance in his life. We here at the Red Pill would have told him to control his emotions, would have been there to listen to the male problems he was struggling with and hopefully would have shown him how to interact with women in a way that would get him the outcome he is looking for.

There are too many young (and old) men in this world who are lost and don't know why. They have no one to guide them or love them so lash out at the society and people they believe are the cause of their pain.

I highly recommend for any men on here who have the time to reach out to the Big Brothers and Big Sisters organization and help mentor some of the young boys in our society who don't have the male figure they so badly need. http://www.bbbs.org

Scott Adams has written some excellent articles not only political topics but also on personal success and unconventional, actionable steps to take for improving your life. His book, How to Fail and Still Win Big is fantastic (no financial interest).

His recent series on how Donald Trump will win the presidency because of his 'wizard' powers is super interesting, and more incisive than any of the mainstream journalists out there.

The dude is perceptive, cold and rational as fuck, though I wouldn't describe him as 'alpha'. Definitely a blog to read regularly.

[–]arrayay 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'll second that book. Fantastic read, good stories and practical suggestions.

[–]Senior Contributorexit_sandman 14 points15 points  (4 children)

How come I always have the impression that Scott Adams has been thoroughly unsuccessful with the ladies as well during his earlier years and got a very jaded outlook on them while simultaneously witnessing how our society pedestalized the shit out of them?

[–]TankVet 10 points11 points  (0 children)

He's a writer, a comedian, these men tend to be watchers. Hyper-observant and he's fiercely logical. Add to it that he's probably been spit on a few times by SJWs and their predecessors for making jokes and you've got yourself a RedPiller.

[–]1InscrutablePUA 7 points8 points  (1 child)

he's definitely not a pussy slayer, but very incisive and rational intellectually.

[–]ButtFuggit 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He married and subsequently divorced a single mother.

[–][deleted] 10 points11 points  (0 children)

"No one cares about adult men"

Boom. Thank you Scott Adams. He's doing a HUGE service by saying that out loud.

And then follows it up with,

"I don’t recall anyone complaining about leaving millions of innocent adult males to horrible suffering. In this country, any solution to a problem that involves killing millions of adult men is automatically on the table."

Holy fuck. This man is redpill.

[–]thenemaxofredpill 10 points11 points  (5 children)

Men like hugging better than they like killing, but if you take away my access to hugging, I will probably start killing ... and I make no apology for it"

And this is why military camp have not had women in them for thousands of years. When men are not getting ass, they get mad and cranky. That means harder fighting. But now that we have let women in the military...men are more worried about who is gonna hook up with the new boat slut.

[–]licklicklickmyballz 11 points12 points  (4 children)

Military camps would have whores, having your men mad and cranky would not amount to better fighting.

[–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Yep look up where the word hooker derived from

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

The idea is to eliminate the natural competition for sex I believe. Get men riled up, but don't have them focusing their energy on getting women instead of training and fighting. With whores you control access to sex. No man is left brooding and no man is unfocused because he knows that sex is on the table as long as he does his job.

[–]thenemaxofredpill -3 points-2 points  (1 child)

Military camps would have whores

Negative ghost rider. Even back before women could join the military in america...it was a standing order that no women are allow on a combat base. Yes...sometimes you were allowed to cross the fence into town for a hooker visit but no women on base. And in a combat zone, you are not allowed to cross the fence. But now, there are women in the military which means women on base...which means distractions.

[–]GeraltGeralt 17 points17 points [recovered]

Am I misunderstanding something or his idea of a male dominated society is pretty shit? Seems to me that he forgets that America's post ww2 renaissance was a direct result of the patriarchy it always espoused as its cultural spirit.

Look, some of his ideas are correct, but I think he is off the mark. This isn't a war of male dominated society versus female dominated society; this is a result of proxy wars, and now proxies running amok. Let's not try to twist reality here to conform to our perspectives.

I do think he is correct about his analysis regarding male impulse and the affects of lack of access to pussy.

[–]Endorsed ContributorFLFTW16 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I agree with you. Societies can be matriarchal or patriarchal, but only civilizations are patriarchal. Societies come and go, but the long term investment of fathers is the driving force that elevates a society into a civilization capable of great things.

Daesh is no civilization. More like a death cult. They don't build anything, only destroy.

Scott Adams has gotten burned a lot for writing about gender issues, and he's never stopped doing it. I remember a period in the past where I was horrified - "Dilbert is hilarious, why does the creator have to be such a sexist pig?" Now I get that those things are complementary, not opposed.

Recently, he actually ran a good examination of the Pay Gap. Basically, he asked everyone to submit their best argument for or against it, waited a few weeks, then dissected all of the submissions he got. The results were really interesting - his technique let him 'cancel' a whole bunch of arguments from both sides that have been decisively disproven, so he got to the heart of the matter.

From what I saw, he concluded that the gap was probably real, but tiny (after correcting for things like education and hazard pay). Further, he answered "companies would hire women cheaply and balance everything out" with the totally off-limits idea of "Not if the women were actually worse employees".

Expect this to blow up in the next day or two.

[–]Furrealyo 2 points3 points  (4 children)

Nah...he's invisible to the mainstream media.

[–]2rp_valiant 3 points4 points  (3 children)

a little birdie tells me it's going to get picked up.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Any subreddit in the top 300 is likely going to attract attention. It's an audience of over 130k+ unsubscribed lurkers. I wouldn't be surprised if it's monitored even loosely by a media bot which alerts the highest posts much like any other medium of sufficient size.

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

damn you're getting me pumped how subtly you're understating it

[–]pilledwillingly 3 points4 points  (0 children)

[–]Idioticaz 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I like how this man thinks. He has hit the nail on the head. But as always it's a shame that these type of articles never make it main stream. I cannot wait for the day the media picks up on some of these articles and gets some non-informed males thinking.

I did however click all the ads on his site to support and help him out so he can keep writing and spreading the truth!

[–]ThePigmanAgain 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He even referred to the US as a matriarchy! Great thing to see from such a popular cartoonist. Now, if only we can get Berkeley Breathed to see the light.

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

Scott Adams reads Heartiste and /pol/

[–]redpilltaste 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Buying some Dilbert right now

[–]1aguy01 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I have a 'best of' Dillbert book.he is pretty damn redpill, before it was ever a thing. My new favorite comics.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Hey, so apparently the people who read TRP are actually people who are out and about in the rest of the world, and not just a statistic.

[–]bowie747 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This article has a link to a previous article of his on gender bias/wage gap which is also an excellent read. Fuck he writes well doesn't he..

[–]Its_All_Been_Done 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Right on the money. Except for ...

Now compare our matriarchy (that we pretend is a patriarchy) with the situation in DAESH-held territory. That’s what a male-dominated society looks like. It isn’t pretty.

Isn't this what a society that allows hypergamy to run amok looks like?

Edit: Also, reality dictates that a capitalistic society is a patriarchal one...

[–]thebadmanpuntdbaxter 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He did a great interview with Tim Ferriss


He goes into depth on his theory with Trump using NLP heavily through the media.
