Our detractors frame us as misogynistic pigs because many of those who post here express misogynistic ideas. We merely tolerate those ideas. We know that the outside world has bred many men who are angry for being lied to about the true nature of women, but now that they are here they can shed those ideas through self improvement and better understanding of women. Men come here and lose pre-existing misogynistic thoughts, not develop them.
Type "the red pill" into Google and you'll find article after article claiming we are a community of sexually unsuccessful men who hate women. They cherry pick the worst quotes from the angriest of the guys in the anger phase and write about how terrible and bitter we are. However, they're forgetting something important. These guys came in here from the outside world. This is like claiming that it must be raining under a pavilion because most of the people huddled under it are wet. Well, it's raining pretty hard outside, and we've got a lot of guys coming in to dry off.
The problem is already out there in the minds of millions and millions of men. They're bitter, angry, and depressed about how women relate to them, but in any other setting they are quiet because they know their true feelings will only get them shamed. Here, we give those angry men a place to shout. The existence of a "rant/venting" flair shows that we are aware of this dynamic. Sure, sometimes a group of anger phase newbies will upvote some insensitive comments, but hating women and wanting inequality is not red pill. Those are the ideas of a bitter, blue pill guy who can't get laid, or an early stage red piller who hasn't come to terms with what he's experiencing. When he comes here and follows the advice given in the top posts and the sidebar he'll regain his sense of masculinity and become a better, more confident man. A confident man has no reason to be angry at women. He'll throw away his idealistic views of women and come to appreciate them for the value they add to his life.
I am far from the perfect red pill man. I still have lingering anger towards feminists. I still feel as though women get a free pass on many aspects of life. However, I felt that way before I came here, and now I'm slowly letting it all go. I'm learning to see that men and women are simply different, and we have different struggles. The longer I stay here, the more I appreciate women. I can bond with a woman in many ways I cannot bond with a man. I can connect with her romantically or physically. I can have a deep, meaningful conversation with her after sex and connect in a way you can really only connect when you're lying naked with someone in the dark, or I can fuck her brains out and make sure both of us are having a fun night. I've internalized that women are human and fallible, and that I can't expect them to solve all my problems or to love me unconditionally.
The point is, the damage was done before they got here. Just because you didn't hear these thoughts doesn't mean millions of men weren't thinking them. Men are coming here armed with these misogynistic ideas, and this sub gives them an outlet to transform their anger into something productive. It will take months, years for a man to internalize red pill and realize that his anger was unnecessary. To all our critics I say be patient and recognize this place for what it is, a training grounds for dissatisfied men. Let the men train, let them grow. When you see the guys who've been around here for years, you'll realize that what comes out the other side is anything but misogynistic.
*Critics of TRP are criticizing the angry newbies, who are a product of society, not TRP
*Without TRP, guys are still thinking these thoughts, just not saying them out loud
*A man is more likely to hold misogynistic thoughts if he misunderstands women
*Men who have put in serious time improving themselves as per the advice given on TRP come to appreciate the value women provide to their lives without harboring unrealistic expectations
