The Red Pill movie trailer
Working in and near Hollywood, all I see is the typical “conflict” they use to stir up interest in their topic. Men aren’t going to movies as much anymore, and Hollywood wants out bucks.
We get enough of “he said, then she said” in our media now, and I don’t see this movie having much of an impact on those who are already unaware of the issues MRA’s and MGTOW face, except maybe to open us up to character assassination.
This movie -made by a woman- is attempting to “fix things” so that women can regain the controlling influence over us their mothers once had. Rather than play into this game, we men will have more of an effect by leaving the society. We shouldn’t interact with women until they begin to treat us better and not assume that we are all ignorant rapists. That we aren’t sperm donors with wallets. That male lives matter. The one comment about how the government doesn’t want to send women to die, but can’t seem to NOT send men (especially lately – see Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan) is the one which should be getting more attention.
I played the beta provider game all my life. I’ve earned over $1.5 million since I began working. All I’ve managed to do with it is survive, paying off a house I can’t afford to repair, and putting a wife and four kids through college. I don’t expect to ever get to retire, because I have dependants who can’t find jobs. It wasn’t worth it economically.
This movie isn’t going to change that. It’s only going to give women more avenues to abuse us.
I’ve been withholding comment on the movie because I’m similarly cynical about where this will end up. I hope that I’m wrong, I really do. What I’ve come across in passing gives me no identifiable thing to point at and go ‘aha…j’accuse’. But that does mean I’m optimistic.
Too many women just do not care about men. I am much more interested in spreading the word to men. Whatever women want to come along are welcome as far as I’m concerned as long as they are here for men. And FTR I’m not seeing any women here that cause my Spawny Senses to tingle. Two of the women here are raising the next generation of boys and the potential partners in society to those boys. They are (as well as adding much to the banter) spreading the red pill to people they meet, children they raise…this is not irrelevant to helping improve the situation of men and boys.
Tarn’s interactions elsewhere on the web and IRL help men too. It is important that even the most impacted by the current situation understand that they are not irrelevant, that there are old codgers from another continent that do care about them, and a youngish woman-looking person closer to home. I’m kind of hesitant to get stuck in on those blogs because I’m from another time, place and back-history (have been married). I have to step carefully. Tarn is out there (more than I am). Cill is mentoring young men IRL. Why is this important?
It’s important to reach out to younger men so that they are encouraged to Go Their Own Way looking for happiness. Not with a woman (or with – whatever), not worrying about ‘playing a positive role’ in a society that gives them no fucks. Find what happiness is possible for you and grab it.
I want them to understand that the shit thrown at them is baseless. That men are good. That men are different from women. That worship of the divine feminine is bullshit. Women are people too. They’re just fucked up in different ways*. In the current legal environment some of the ways that they’re fucked up are very dangerous to men. By all means keep away from them unless the situation benefits you. If you don’t think any such situations exist? Fine. I will not criticise your view. I might wave a few options at you, take ’em or leave ’em. It’s all good. I am not a leader.
(*When I say “They’re just fucked up in different ways”, you need to understand that I’m not playing the old equivalence game. The subject of a future post (probably))
