In my area there are 25 shelters for women and 1 shelter for men. The mens shelter constantly gets shit for not accepting women.

[–][deleted] 91 points92 points  (14 children)

In my entire country there are 0 shelters for men. Only explanation I received is "majority of domestic abuse victims are women".

[–]rn1ke 66 points67 points  (12 children)

I've actually seen stats that show women initiate the majority of domestic violence. They just rarely do the same level of damage.

[–]Endorsed ContributorrebuildingMyself 81 points82 points  (10 children)

They are experts in emotional, mental, and proxy violence. They keep their hands clean then turn on the waterworks afterwards.

[–]probpoopin 23 points24 points  (9 children)

Makes sense from an evolutionary view when sexual dimorphism is taken into account. Men can over power a women 99% of the time. Now, couple that with the fact that historically, as a species, we have just invented ideas of things like justice in the last ten thousand or so years, give or take a few thousand years. Anyways, for the majority of our species time on this planet men would have basically been able to forcibly mate with any female they want. Rape is actually very common in nature and nothing happens to the rapist. If anything they are rewarded with offspring. There is no jail or anything in the way of punishment for doing this. So, women, in order to offset this from happening and being stuck with undesirable offspring, developed defense mechanisms to abate the possibility of being raped to some extent. Obviously they can't overpower a man, so they basically have honed in their ability to fuck with people's heads, be deceitful, and control those around them on an emotional level. It is very effective.

I agree with this, its why women love rough sex so much. Women are obsessed with rape, they talk about how horrible it is all day long and vilify all men for something that only a few men would do. Then at night they go home and get pounded out, hair pulled, manhandled, spanked, slapped, spit on, they just get closer and closer to some type of consensual rape. No lie I had sex in a hammock for the first time, and I accidentally stuck it in this chicks butt. She told me how sexy that it was that I took charge, and how manly I was. WTF? Another lady just used to leave her door unlocked for me, told me to come in and have my way with her, tie her up and all this shit, then just leave. then later she would text how good it was...also WTF? There is a term called "rape fantasy" and from a statistic I recently read probably on this forum, was that 40% of women admitted to have fantasies about being raped. HOLY SHIT. We didn't create a "rape culture" they did.

[–]wadebarlow 12 points13 points  (3 children)

They just don't want to be raped by some creepy, weak sauce, bottom feeder. That's when it becomes a problem.

[–]1Ill_mumble_that 7 points8 points  (2 children)

Women are 100% okay with rape if the man doing the raping is a top tier male. But then again you can't rape the willing or so they say. They crave that alpha sperm.

This is why when men get raped in prison they can't comprehend how it's a bad thing. "An alpha male is having sex with him, what's so bad about that?" Especially the feminists, they think it's funny.

[–]Forcetobereckonedwit 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yup. Another female tactic, start the shit, then turn the tables as soon as the guy falls into the trap. Happens all....the....time.

[–]Forcetobereckonedwit 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Oh they start the shit alright. They just call the cops in a heartbeat after they torture their bf and push him into shoving her.

[–]JohnnyHammerstickz 26 points27 points  (6 children)

Ironically the ratio of homeless women:men that need those shelters is the exact opposite.

[–]Apexk9 10 points11 points  (2 children)

That's when you switch your gender and then make a big social push against it.

Remember boys it's time to play dirty.

[–]probpoopin 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Because vagina. I swear, in about to start carrying a little vajay around with me. If I get need to use the service of a domestic violence center and they ask if I have a vajay, I can say, actually, I do right here. Then pull my little vagina out of my pocket and skip on in FTW.

[–]CircleOfO 11 points12 points  (5 children)

Due to a particular circumstance I had need to get shelter in the UK. I called Shelter, on the police's advice, which was a total bust. In fact the person on the phone was more interested in the circumstances in was in and looking for a way to say that I was a danger to my SO at the time. To preface, the police had been called by neighbors as my SO had come home drunk, not liked some DIY jobs I was half way through finishing and was going ballistic, throwing paint cans at the walls. For whatever reason I couldn't calm her down but the police told me it was best I left the house. So I did under the idea that I'd likely be arrested if I didn't.

Anyway, so shelter had nothing. The best I could get was potentially a homeless shelter if it wasn't full (it was and was later told they wouldn't have taken me anyway).

I drove 60 miles to a hotel, the nearest with a room and then spent the subsequent week sleeping in my car, showering at my gym and waiting to find out if my SO would let me back without throwing things at me.

In between that, I had to be x rayed at the hospital as my elbow wouldn't stop hurting from where a paint can had hit me.

On the plus side it was the final week of our relationship despite her demanding we put things back together. In my mind there was no way back from that, despite we had never had that explosive an argument before.

The down side is there is nothing for men in the UK. DV shelters are all women only. While I see that most shelters cater for women who don't want men around after an ordeal like DV, and it's likely guys will usually find a friends sofa to crash on for a bit, I didn't have that opportunity. It was eye opening to see how easy it is for men to become and remain homeless in the UK. When there is not a single place a man can go bar a drug pit like a homeless shelter and only then it's a maybe, it's a sorry state of affairs.

That said it's not an issue you ever hear in the UK. I'd accept that a men's only shelter may not get as much demand as a women's only, but for there to be absolutely none beggars belief.

Before you ask, I was not violent to my SO. The police ejected me as I was sober and she would have been vulnerable had they made her leave. The apparent violence was a non issue for the police. My guess is that they didn't want the paperwork. And as it happens, she came home angry as her boyfriend I didn't know about dumped her mere hours before. I thought she was with her parents.

[–]2comment 7 points7 points [recovered]

Domestic violence against men is widely seen as a joke... until it happens to them. There was a guy, I think up in Canada, trying to open a battered men's shelter through his own experiences but got harrassed by local authorities. Think he committed suicide???

It's been years since I read the story and can't recall the source.

[–]Forcetobereckonedwit 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Lying, cheating whore attacks you and proceeds to destroy property and you are told to leave your apt by the police. That's what it's come to guys. Time to change a few things.

"Manpoo"

"It's the shit."

Am I being elaborately trolled?

[–]BrotatoGames[S] 34 points35 points  (8 children)

Haha, nah dude, that's just my marketing. I was thinking of making t-shirts for our kickstarter. "Manpoo - It's the Shit."

We have it all trademarked and ever'thing.

[–]juliusstreicher 23 points24 points  (4 children)

Good luck, but, I can't really go for something that's cleanliness related, with so many scatological references.

[–]BrotatoGames[S] 12 points13 points  (0 children)

No worries dude. It's just our manpoo that has those references. We have bodywash and beard oil that have different themed names.

[–]2comment 4 points4 points [recovered]

First, you want to be noticed. Second, you want to be remembered...

[–]kragshot 6 points7 points  (1 child)

I'm so going to get one of those t-shirts when it drops.

BTW...when will your shampoo stock be back up? I was just going to put in an order and everything's sold out!

[–]BrotatoGames[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

We are trying to finish up the kickstarter first before we take any more orders. The store will be back up in 9 days, but if you wanna help us via the kickstarter that would be cool.

[–]LandoChronus 66 points67 points  (3 children)

I love the original article. You can actually read her struggle to write it.

She starts with the usual slams on men and anything not feminism related:

"Crushes beer can against skull" and "..protect their neck(beard)s from all that is pink, floral, and otherwise lady-like."

Then she stumbles a little bit, conceding the point a few times: For what it’s worth, their scents sound pretty nice!" or "There is also nothing wrong with being a straight man who is into firm handshakes." So the shampoo should smell good (and not be frilly and lady -like!) and we're allowed to be manly in regards to handshakes, but god forbid we promote a product that started those traits!

Finally we get to the end where she gives in, but has to throw one last little punch. The final attempt to reject: "Maybe at least workshop the name?"

Reading that article reminded me of every other time a girl has tried to fend off her attraction to men who do and use manly things.

[–]BrotatoGames[S] 25 points26 points  (1 child)

Right? She really tried to do her best in finding shit to throw at us. My hope is that readers can sift through her garbage and see what our company really is.

[–][deleted] 24 points25 points  (0 children)

You guys should totally embrace this. Escalate this as much as you can and you'll soon wipe your ass with dollar bills.

Great opportunity

[–]abdada 174 points175 points  (54 children)

God I would love for free marketing like this for anything I sold.

[–]BrotatoGames[S] 59 points60 points  (52 children)

So far, that's the only good that's come from it. But unfortunately, as you can see in the second link, she points out that the only people she's telling about it are more feminists.

[–]abdada 58 points59 points  (42 children)

All PR is good PR. I've actively tried to promote some of my so-called misogynistic products by hiring people to create fake feminist twitter accounts and generating rage but it never took. Wasted money and effort. Might try again this year, these tweets you posted are a good resource for generating free rage.

Also in the white knight tweet, I know the guy who invented Bronuts.

[–]BrotatoGames[S] 15 points16 points  (15 children)

True. Hell, I didn't think about that being an entire marketing strategy. Makes sense though, controversy is at the heart of the best products.

Yeah, use those accounts for testing, they seem to have a hair-trigger for men-related topics.

[–][deleted] 28 points29 points  (1 child)

If Lady Gaga says F**k Manpoo, you guys are going to be shitting gold.

[–]TRP VanguardHumanSockPuppet 8 points9 points  (3 children)

Hell, if you have a line of sandalwood scented products I'll gladly buy them, for the quality, the scent, and the rustled jimmies.

[–]BrotatoGames[S] 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Right now we have our Lumberjack beard oil which has Sandalwood, but I'm also in the process of creating a moustache wax with Sandalwood and Bergamont. For other rustic scents, we have Firm Handshake manpoo which has tea tree and cedarwood. We're working on World Traveler, which will be tobacco and vanilla (my personal fave).

[–]Endorsed ContributorMarsupian 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Have a look at the "get beach body ready" controversy around some protein brand. They handled it really well in terms of getting widespread publicity from it. Might be some good inspiration.

This shit is like preselection. You have a cackle of feminists jealous of your product. Maybe the time window has passed but there should be a way to spin this for more free PR.

[–]BrotatoGames[S] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Maybe someone should send them this thread. That would be an easy way to rekindle the fires...

[–]abdada 3 points4 points  (2 children)

I'm taking notes now. I bet you'll see a sales uptick once it's all done with. Free SEO.

[–]fruitbyyourfeet 2 points3 points  (1 child)

They're already sold out of everything but lumberjack and smoke jumper beard oil. Can't say for sure if they can credit it to this, but I would believe it.

[–]BrotatoGames[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

We are now allowing purchases even though we're out of stock. It'll be shipped after June 6th.

[–]iagovar 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Man, don't worry. As others said, use it for PR, and you've got free backlinks. Nobody will give a fu** about that article.

[–]razormachine 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Well because of negative PR feminists, and whiteknights are not going to buy the product. But they wouldn't buy the product anyway... so win-win!

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

link it to here.

It'll come

[–]abdada 6 points7 points  (1 child)

When I advertised on Return of Kings, I had a record month -- NOT from traffic from there, but from morons who tried to shame me for advertising there.

Then Roosh pulled his PR stunt and his website got more traffic than ever, and he kept my ad up in the former sponsors section. It drive 16,000% more traffic than expected that month, and sales were up about 1200% over expectation. I had to temporarily raise prices by 30% in order to curb purchases because we couldn't handle that much volume, lol.

I should advertise there again. All PR is good PR.

[–]naptakerr 3 points4 points  (3 children)

Can confirm; I've never heard of Manpoo before this thread. Will purchase Lumberjack beard oil today because fuck feminists. I hope your shit doesn't suck.

Edit: Your site is sold out. Must be working.

[–]BrotatoGames[S] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Sorry about that. It's up for purchase again and will ship after June 6th. Newmanrevolution.com

You can still order. We'll ship em after June 6th.

[–]probpoopin 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It causead a little mini trigger, that spread to their friends, and eventually gained enough traction to be a decent post here. Plus, it's food to help people out who share your views. When they are more successful, so is the message. Looks like a good product so I'm gonna give it a go. I could care less what the name is. There really is shit for selection when it comes to hair for guys. Now I'm in my thirties, I need all the hair I've got and don't feel like dousing it in chemicals every morning. Crew is ok, but doesn't have much for selection and is a bit pricey.

Interviews with feminists is a waste of time, unless you are mark Rudolph who does not give a shit... http://youtu.be/hcSUuMv7_zk

[–]TRP VanguardArchwinger 38 points39 points  (4 children)

You're missing the mark here.

Feminists aren't against male-targeted products. They're against the boogeyman known as "toxic masculinity".

Any article, product, ad, person, place, or thing that promotes the idea of traditional manliness in a positive light is harming the universe by furthering an archaic and outdated standard of masculinity that nobody wants or needs any more.

Except for all of the women who fuck guys like that and love it.

They don't give a shit about male-targeted shampoo. They just have to open their lard lips -- they absolutely can't control themselves -- when you advertise it as a manly product instead of a metrosexual hair-sauce for enlightened nu-males, and of course, trannies, who are every bit as male as cis-males and if you think otherwise, you're Hitler.

[–]ioncloud9 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I've read a couple of her so called articles. She pretty much mocks anything masculine, and then mocks men for not being that which she was previously mocking. In her eyes female oriented products and services are ok but male oriented ones are a either a joke because its "not masculine" or it might be something she or other women like and therefore marketed towards anyone.

[–][deleted] 29 points30 points  (7 children)

Either you've created a brilliant viral marketing campaign targeted to the shitlord demographic and you're trolling us or this is for real and the business equivalent of a shit test. If it is a shit test, maybe you should agree and amplify: "Manpoo ... guaranteed to clean your hair and grow your cock. Naturally."

Seriously, if this for real, those dumbass feminists and white knights provided you with PR and viral marketing that would normally cost thousands of bucks.

[–]BrotatoGames[S] 7 points8 points  (5 children)

My basic thought on marketing is that controversial is best when trying to go viral. All of my business interests are things that lean heavily towards this theory.

Yes and I hope they keep up the good work.

[–][deleted] 9 points10 points  (3 children)

In viral marketing controversial works if it makes your target market sympathetic to your product, which this does.

Let chicks and white knights have Dove. Real men use the 'Poo.

[–]BrotatoGames[S] 3 points4 points  (1 child)

I like it. If we end up using that, I'll send kudos your way.

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

From a marketing perspective, if you're trying to stir the pot, "Real men use 'poo" is a brilliant campaign.

[–]Endorsed ContributorFLFTW16 22 points23 points  (1 child)

OP you should double down and make a press release about you new line of hair care products: Misogyny. Maybe spell it differently like "Miss Ogyny" and have a pic of a woman in lingerie bending over on the label. Float the idea out there and see if they bite. There are so many ways you could play with the reactions. You could say that the feminist articles made you research what "neckbeards" were and that if men who hate women utilized your company's products, then they must be catered to! HASH TAG ALL HAIRS MATTER!

[–]Trail_of_Jeers 5 points6 points  (0 children)

This...so much this. I would buy Miss Ogyny's body wash in a New York minute.

[–]nevva_Again 17 points18 points  (0 children)

I get that shampoo is not inherently gender separate, fine, but we're not attacking women by creating a product specifically for men.

Except that in today's Western society, anything done for the benefit of men is a direct attack on women.

How dare you think about the wellbeing of men! Misogynist! Check your white privilege.

[–]8bitmadness 18 points19 points  (4 children)

You just got yourself a new customer. I have incredibly oily hair, but stuff with sodium laurel or sodium laureth sulfate just makes my hair all stringy by stripping all that oil away.

[–]BrotatoGames[S] 5 points6 points  (3 children)

Exactly dude, our natural essential oils give that oil back. Right now, we've put orders on hold on our website until our kickstarter ends.

[–]Mahesvara-37 13 points14 points  (2 children)

imagine adding " harmful to feminists" on the bottles. They will go batshit crazy like they always do and ... free marketing 😂😂

[–]rumovoice 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Remember that bad PR is still PR. This is how Trump won his nomination - he was trolling SJWs and got fuckton of free coverage everywhere.

To get the most try to troll them hard. The more people will hear about your company the better - even if it is from feminists that try to make you look bad.

[–]Grimsterr 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Awesome, you couldn't buy such good advertising if you tried!

[–]SDR184 4 points5 points  (0 children)

[–]50pluspiller 9 points10 points  (6 children)

You walk into a fucking department store, and 90% of it is geared towards women. The first thing you see are their perfumes and jewelry as soon as you walk in. For men, you have one little Shelf. Walk around to the men's section and you have a little corner in the store. Fuck women, fuck feminists! Sears used to have a great section for men's tools, sporting equipment, and Lawn Equipment, now that barely exists.

Women are only good for one thing nowadays, that is to fuck them, then leave them.

Never get married, never get into a long-term relationship, just spin them as plates!

[–]CQC3 13 points14 points  (2 children)

That's not feminism. That is business. In fact, if feminism wasn't so god damned good for business, it wouldn't have gone anywhere.

If you have any news on when you are releasing the product I am pretty damn interested in it.

[–]BrotatoGames[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

We already have released it, our kickstarter is almost done, and we should have the bottles available for sale again on our website soon. We are already in 4 stores here in Boise, Idaho, including Whole Foods.

[–]sirfuckboysupreme 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Make a product for men and thats sexist? What?! Ill tell you what's sexist: clothing stores which have 75% of products for women 12.5% for children and 12.5% for men.

Edit: love the name manpoo

[–]NueveReinas 2 points3 points  (8 children)

19.95 for a shampoo is a little bit too much even if i want to contribute, can we get a reddit discount going on?

[–]BrotatoGames[S] 6 points7 points  (3 children)

Alright, use code TRP for a 10% discount. Gotcha covered.

That's why I wash my hair with soap, you know, like a man! /s

[–]Senior EndorsedMattyAnon 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Manpoo? No way I'm buying that shit.

I buy generic, low priced, non-premium cheapass cleaning products. Like a man should.

[–]cynicalprick01 5 points6 points  (3 children)

all I see when I look at comments in TRP threads these days are emotionally charged personal examples.

no real discussion, just repeating talking points OP mentioned.

so, does anyone else think that he is trying to market a product to men the same way it is marketed to women?

I mean, I look at the kickstarter and everything and I just feel like someone is attempting to manipulate me by showing this "cool and suave" product with hyperbolic claims not really backed up anywhere.

like, he says its better and different from all other products, but they dont show any data proving this or even supporting it. they just make the claim and leave it.

also, someone else in this thread already mentioned how he would pay fake feminists to create drama to get his product more attention. is it possible that is what is going on here?

I think TRP should have a NO ADVERTISING ALLOWED rule, because before it was "TRPs psych and marketing guy", and now it's this guy promoting his kickstarter. this is further supported by the fact the article was posted on May fking 12th, but he chooses now, when his kickstarter is close to meeting its goal, to post this shit.

and getting popularity through oppression?

who the fuck are you, anita sarkeesian?

[–]TheRealMewt 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Use their butthurtness to gain more popularity

[–]CoreyLewandowski 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Start agreeing and amplifying. It's your #1 tool when dealing with feminists, because the second you refuse to apologize for your brand, they don't know how to deal with you anymore.

[–]tyrone316 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Schrodinger's gender: According to feminists, until it is observed, masculinity exists in a superposition in which it is simulatneously (1) so powerful that it's a threat to society and (2) laughably weak/fragile.

[–]johnchapel 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Welp, frankly, consider your problem solved.

By bringing this to TRP, you've basically penetrated a pretty big market, and TRP is pretty notorious for loyally supporting anyone who catches the ire of feminists.

Besides, realistically, all she's doing is advertising that your product exists, and your product has a humorous kitch about it, with the name. Anything she says beyond that is simply an opinion that is irrelevant to the product, and will not convince anyone, on either side of the fence. Normal people will see a product. Retards will see patriarchy. All she's doing is raising your companies profile, and your potential market can only be further penetrated.

I see no harm here.

[–]SovietWarfare 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Have any plans to make your company and IPO to help cover startup costs? I'd be interested in buying a few stocks if you did.

[–]Pinworm45 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I never thought what I needed in my life was more man-poo.

[–]TheGatherHunter 2 points3 points  (6 children)

Old Spice and Axe are complete shit, and their current ingredients include chemicals that are used in car washes to strip oils and grease from car's exteriors

Yeah, and some pesticides contain water. It doesn't mean I'm never going to drink again.

Oh yeah, and they help make your hair fall out.

Do you have proof? I'm not hating on you or your product, this just sounds like you're trying to put down your competition. My hair is actually thinning slightly, so if it's true, I might end up buying some.

[–]BrotatoGames[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

It's all about the ingredients: sulfates, parabens and artificial frangrances.

It's not proof, but I've been following the "no poo" (look it up) method for years and I surprise surprise I stopped losing my hair when I stopped putting industrial chemicals in it. It's not for everyone but it works for me.

I just want to say one thing regarding Jaya Saxena.

She is absolutely talentless. She is not a journalist. I would be thoroughly ashamed and feel physically ill from making the kind of "articles" she makes, even if it was done ironically as a joke(which is what her articles are).

In the end, competence isn't entirely relative. She isn't competent and will always remain a loser. I recommend that you find a journalist that isn't incompetent and tell your story. Jaya Saxena deserves ridicule, and it would be free exposure.

This actually (free?) good propaganda. Don't know if you are doing it intentionally or not, but this is benefitting you.

[–]parallacks 4 points5 points  (2 children)

My company has been attacked ridiculed by feminists a blogger for creating products geared towards men a silly product name and marketing strategy.

There's a reason this product is not "attacked" in the same way.

[–]iiMSouperman 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Ah so it's okay to be clean, but not have a joke whilst doing it.

gotcha!

[–]mykonos_rm 1 point2 points  (0 children)

bro, enjoy it. this is great marketing for you. 48 laws of power: no such thing as bad news, the worst is being ignored.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

first of all good luck with your venture and enjoy the free coverage. I don't think they can harm you by doing this. There are shit tons of guys out there who would buy your product without a heartbeat. Secondly please archive that stupid link. I felt really bad by giving them a hit.

[–]BrotatoGames[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Thanks dude, appreciate the support and the request. Didn't know about archiving before. Archived.

[–]infernoimp 1 point2 points  (1 child)

should be sell womens beard oil as well, just to make them feel equal

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

"Gender neutral beard products." I like it.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Thanks for sharing. Going to order some products from your company later tonight when im off work. I strongly support red pill business.

[–]BrotatoGames[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thanks dude, Our website will have more in stock in 9 days, after our kickstarter is over. If you wanna pledge towards the kickstarter instead, that would be fucking fantastic.

[–]trptwerp 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I was expecting something agitating, but it gave me a good laugh.

[–]TopKekSkye 1 point2 points  (1 child)

If I see it in the store, you'll have a new customer!

[–]BrotatoGames[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Cool! We're in one Whole Foods (hopefully more soon) and we sell online!

[–]bisjac 1 point2 points  (0 children)

im in the market for a new body wash. as yes, axe and old spice ARE shit.

[–]PLaTinuM_HaZe 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Didn't know about your product before but now not only want to buy it cause it's a good product but also cause fuck that bitch that wrote that... Like 75% of all cosmetic products are for women...

[–]Trail_of_Jeers 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Looks like I am buying Manpoo. :D

Edit: Or Not. All sold out. D:

[–]BrotatoGames[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

We will have more in a week and a half. Or if you wanna help with the kickstarter: www.kickstarter.com/projects/77679967/new-man-revolution-manpoo-and-manditioner-be-boldb

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

"Our products are so good for men. That feminists hate them." - That's the tag line I'd be using on the products. Have a laugh about it. I'm a cheap fuck when it comes to wellness and care products. I shave my head and shave my face each day. I really need to moisterize, I know that but that's not me. When I want to start doing myself up like my queer male friends who are power bottoms, then maybe I'll get into the products. Till then my looks are "Power Attorney" and "Shaved Head Mystery Man".

[–]AragornRF 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is pure gold if it hits the mainstream media. Free ads.

[–]batfish55 1 point2 points  (1 child)

By the way, yes, our shampoo is called Manpoo. We're not changing it. It "sticks" in people's minds and according to our sales, it's the shit.

That is fucking awesome. If I didn't shave my head, I'd buy that shit just on principle.

[–]BrotatoGames[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Thanks, dude. We have bodywash as well... just saying.

[–]yaylindizzle 1 point2 points  (0 children)

she is causing the problem with feminism...

[–]Capitalsman 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Reminds me when Dr Pepper 10 was called Dr Pepper for men, women all over the internet had a fit and youtube had videos of women in bikinis telling Dr Pepper fuck you I'm a full bodied woman and can drink your offensive sexist soda too.

[–]Thewelshpill 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Manpoo... I fucking love it haha.

Don't sweat, free publicity!

[–]Snazzy_Serval 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Hmm, apparently Axe and Old Spice, among other body washes are toxic.

http://www.natural-skincare-authority.com/natural-body-wash-review.html

Thanks for bringing that to my attention.

[–]razormachine 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Oh yeah, and they help make your hair fall out.

3 bottles just went flying out of my window :D

[–]FrankieTAE 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I don't know if there's anything more pathetic than a white knight. I would be so embarassed if I was that afraid of my own masculinity

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

Tag should also include self promotion

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

I'll say what I can because I love what you're doing here. Just grow some thick ass skin and roll with it. Shutting down the feminist argument is easy stuff. Soak it, let em blast you and enjoy it by poking them with a proverbial stick.

Others have mentioned "Real Men Use 'poo"

Feminist repellent formula!

Hag/Feminist/Cunt Free

Ball/Cock Wash

Get your hairs pussy smooth!

Just a few things that come to mind. Watching feminazis sell products is some hilarious shit. Great stuff.

[–]slip-down 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is the classic case of our society just running out of shit to complain about. Even if we (men) give in to all of their demands they still will bitch, moan and complain. My advice, agree and amplify make every single feminist "hate" you guys. Truth. They never truly will, rather they envy, love and lust after real masculinity.

[–]cooldude46 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Dude, that shit is dope! (I'm talking bout the shampoo not the feminists.)

[–]BobLordOfTheCows 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Who took the photo of the beard oil in front of the fireplace? Brilliant photo.

[–]stevehillage 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I think people like that just see masculinity as a threat to the power they have worked so hard to gain. That and also you know, shitty journalists who will write outrageous bullshit for views. Any publicity is good publicity. Whether you are fighting the good fight or just carefully wording things in a way you just know is going to upset people. It gets attention, it's bullshit and totally dishonest (seeing as they are mocking your new business) but it works for them.

I don't see anything wrong with your product names. There is no shame in masculinity. We should be proud of our manliness just as feminists encourage women to be proud.

Hope it all works out for you. I'm so sick of seeing toxic chemicals in everything. Also sick of toxic man-shaming attitudes ! ;)

[–]6-_-j 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I appreciate this marketing initiative lol.

[–]Hamster_S_Thompson 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Read the article. What a pile of shit. A "Daily Idiot" would be a better fitting title with articles like that.

I bet she knows well that the whole thing is a non issue, but they live off of clicks and are are desperate. Nothing generates clicks like controversy and outrage so they fabricate it where there is none.

[–]shpuzster 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Iv been around trp for some time, but have never commented on anything until right now. This is pure gold. Don't know if you're posting here for publicity or actually posting because of related content, but it's working. Saving the link and buying some of your products first chance I get. Keep up the good work.

[–]WN5h 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I have to say, compared to some mens specific stuff I've seen, your shit is extremely reasonably priced. Good on you.

[–]DracoPhage 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Thank you for the post.

I had a mild revelation while reading the article. She makes some slight about how being a man has to be at the middle of every man's experience (paraphrase) and how she just doesn't understand.

I suppose based on this and other things women have said is that they don't understand that we men can be happy and fulfilled in just being a man. It's nice to be reminded of who you are.

I'll be ordering your products sometime soon. Excellent work. I'd love to see a sandalwood fragrance shampoo, if you have the time.

[–]BrotatoGames[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Thanks dude, we're working with sandalwood in our next bodywash. We have beard oil with sandalwood in it, and I'm currently working on a mustache wax with it in it. But if we get enough requests, I can see about putting sandalwood in our next scent.

[–]choikwa 1 point2 points  (1 child)

holyshit where can I get Manpoo?

[–]chances_are_ur_a_fag 1 point2 points  (2 children)

this cunt:

men going to extremes to protect their neck(beard)s..

has a neckbeard for a pet

[–]BrotatoGames[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Haha, how did you even find this?

[–]imapeacockdangit 1 point2 points  (1 child)

And the commercial pop-up on the article?

Axe!

No shit...keep doing what you do.

[–]TedTheAtheist 1 point2 points  (3 children)

I just got some manpoo body wash, as I have no hair. :)

[–]BrotatoGames[S] 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Haha, dude, that's why we made the bodywash. Bald is the new sexy.

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (10 children)

Yo /u/redpillschool can we make this the official shampoo of The Red Pill? That should really set off the femisphere

[–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (4 children)

I'm all for supporting this guy and his product personally, but it sets a bad precedent for TRP to encourage people to come in here to sell shit. We all ready have enough of it with people directing traffic to paysites and other bullshit. The only reason I'm good with this post is that he was actively attacked by journalist over the nature of his product. I say buy his shit if it looks good to you, but let's not wrap the sub up in profiteering for private interest.

[–]1naMlliPdeR 1 point2 points  (3 children)

/u/redpillschool while I think that people coming into the subreddit just to sell a brand, especially new users is kind of an offput and might bring in the wrong kind of contributors, this might be a fun idea to give some thought.

It's nice to think of theredpill as not a place where we not only discuss sexual strategy, but also where men with similar mindsets can also help each other out. Men helping other men out fits into the spirit.

Of course, it's up to the mods, but what hurt could a sticky do until the kickstarter is finished (in 9 days). Would also piss off feminists :D

[–]cynicalprick01 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Men helping other men out fits into the spirit.

the difference is, we help other men help themselves by offering information. we dont actually actively and directly help anyone like what is being proposed here.

like dude, this sub has already become enough of a joke, with ppl trying to make money off it however they can.

like ffs, remember "TRPs psych and marketing guy"?

[–]1naMlliPdeR 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I don't see it having negative consequences.

[–]cynicalprick01 2 points3 points  (0 children)

the quality of the average post has already gone way down since I have been here and there seem to be more people here trying to make a name for themselves and using manipulation tactics on other redpillers instead of dropping the fking act and just being real with eachother, like it used to be.

Good marketing move coming here.

Well handled by a small company. Daily Dot readers would never buy your product anyway.

[–]crestind 1 point2 points  (0 children)

"Essential oils" "organic" "plant based ingredients"

Your branding says one thing, but your product description is saying the exact opposite. Doesn't sound very manly at all. Sounds more like the product is compensating for something. I'll stick to the giant $1 bottles of Suave shampoo. Hair doesn't magically absorb ingredients and become healthier.

Lastly I'm highly skeptical about how well this product works in the absence of SLS.

How does old Spice shampoo make your hair fall out?

[–]RealMcGonzo 6 points7 points  (1 child)

One strand at a time! LOL, I crack me up. :D

[–]BrotatoGames[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Haha, good one, McGonzo.

It's all about the ingredients: sulfates, parabens and artificial frangrances. Here are some links that might answer your questions better than I can:

I'll try some of that beard oil when you get more stock later.

[–]BrotatoGames[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

The beard oil is in stock. It's just the manpoo that's out.

Fuck those sexist parasites. If they can't see the hypocrisy of having thousands of female only shit, and getting angry about a male only thing, they are beyond hope.

Why can't we wise up and start arresting these crazies?

[–]SneakyTouchy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Can I put Manpoo on my dick?

I'll take one in every color!
