I recently stumbled across a subreddit called “TheRedPill” and I am a little saddened by it. I’ve long been aware of pick-up artist logic, anti-feminism, and general alpha-male mentality, so this community’s existence is not surprising. What’s so sad about it is that it represents a portion of the population whose first reaction to the illusion of being marginalized is to push back in the opposite direction. They call this adaptation, but what they’re really doing is painting themselves in with every other movement that fought social change to the bitter end.
To summarize The Red Pill, it’s basically a bunch of men huddling together and complaining about how women are by nature incompetent and should not be trusted with any responsibility or authority. This also means that they view women, not as individuals, but as naive, manipulable creatures who inconveniently just happen to be holding the one thing they need them for – sex – at arm’s length.
