Last night I had the opportunity to attend the Toronto screening of Cassie Jaye's "The Red Pill: A Feminist's Journey into the Men's Right's Movement." Because I've seen many posts on TRP which discuss the concept of the film, but have yet to see a review, I thought I'd share with the community my findings.

First off, I want to make it clear that I am not an MRA. My first exposure to gender politics was in university, where I minored in Women's Studies. I mention this because I found myself identifying with Jaye's "awakening" throughout the film; her perspective of women as an oppressed class slowly eroding under the weight of the evidence. This was similar to my own experience, which made the film personally relatable. If you have any interest in my personal RP awakening, you can find this in my post history.

Regardless - on to the review.

If you haven't seen the trailer, or read any of the posts discussing the content over the past year, the film documents a successful feminist filmmaker's exploration of the MRM. Jaye starts the film by highlighting her past work, her most recent film prior being focused upon marriage equality. As part of her research into "rape culture" (which was originally intended to be her next topic) she chances upon the highly controversial website "A Voice for Men", written by none-other than GLO's favourite, Paul Elam.

As Jaye delves further into Elam's writings, she becomes fascinated by the dissonance between the media portrayals of MRMs as "rape apologists", "woman-haters", and "misogynists" vs what they are actually saying, and decides she'd like to interview Elam and several other prominent MRM speakers. These include names like Dr. Warren Farrell, who penned "The Myth of Male Power" in the 70s and was an outspoken figure in men's issues long before TRP. She also meets with The Honey Badgers, a group of female MRA's; as well as Elaine Pizzey, who opened the first domestic violence shelter in 1971 and who was one of the first to acknowledge publicly that domestic violence can be perpetrated by both men and women equally.

As she collects insight from the MRA side of the discussion, she also consults leading feminist figureheads on their views of the mens movement. Participants included the Executive Director of the Feminist Majority Foundation, Katherine Spillar; and Dr. Michael Kimmel, American sociologist and gender studies "expert." She even interviews Big Red, the infamous loud mouth who is immortalized on YouTube for disrupting an MRA event at U of T and then proceeding to scream and demean the participants.

Without highlighting every single point that Jaye makes in the film, she does an excellent job of exploring traditional gender roles and their impact on normative behaviours (particularly compelling was the comparison of men as "success objects" to the feminist script of women as "sex objects"). Jaye also delves into the statistics surrounding so-called "male privilege", pointing out that 98% of military deaths are men; 94% of workplace fatalities are men; 75% of suicides are men; 90% of the homeless are men; and that 1 in 4 men will be victims of intimate partner violence (compared to 1 in 3 women). She covers the significant drop in male enrollment in post-secondary education; sexual violence against men and boys; and the epidemic of autism diagnoses and Ritalin prescription to "control" boys' behaviour as they grow.

She also explores father's rights and the damage of wrongful paternity. Jaye touches on examples of willing Dads forced to see their children adopted, or others who fought justly for 14 years in custody battles, only to lose their children forever. She highlights cases where men were forced to pay child support for children that DNA proved were not theirs; and others where entire families were destroyed by paternity fraud.

Throughout, Jaye records video diaries where her perspectives gradually shift. At one point, she attempts to revisit her feminist leanings by involving herself in women's events - but this is in vain. As the credits begin to roll, she states that her journey has transformed her - and in good conscience, she can no longer identify as a feminist.

Some of you may read this and immediately assume that Jaye is pandering to her audience. You may be familiar with the Breitbart campaign to raise funds to make this film. I was skeptical as well, and going into this experience I decided to reserve my judgement until I had watched the whole thing and could comment fairly on what I had seen. I am happy to say that I do not feel Jaye pandered at all. There was adequate screen time for both the MRAs and Feminists, and any holes or flaws in the feminist logic came directly out of the mouths of their speakers - not from Jaye.

This is an important film. Jaye successfully unpacks the extremely complex issues surrounding modern gender politics and presents mens rights as a multitude of intersecting topics, and all worth discussing. Through evidence, she debunks the hateful rhetoric which is associated with the manosphere, and opens the door for further dialogue around the meaning of egalitarianism in the 21st century.

Part of the reason we all visit TRP is because we acknowledge that our culture increasingly lacks a positive identity for men. One of the central tenets of TRP is, a-la Fight Club, that you do not talk about the red pill. But therein lies a problem - if we cannot have an open dialogue regarding equality in our culture, especially when it pertains to half our populace, we cannot consider ourselves free. We remain prisoners in a gyno-centric society where men are disposable and unwanted. If any of you one day wish to have sons, it stands to reason that we cannot allow this to continue.

I hope that this film opens new doors to the public discussion of the issues facing men and boys, and as such I give this film ***** - Highly recommended.

... and all it took was actually talk to MRAs instead of bashing them, listen to them instead of interrupting them by showering them with misinterpreted Oxford dictionary definitions ("You misogynist!") and form conclusions from relevant statistics sorted to gender instead of bantering some subjective post-truth nonsense about them being "biased" because "most data analysts/data scientists are straight white men and thus evil!".

The ease of Jaye's conversion shows the weakness of the (Third-wave) feminism paradigm and its axioms.

This just in!!! Apparently it was supposed to be shown in Ottawa, but it was cancelled because of some feminist intervention.

[Julie] Lalonde, one of several who complained to the Mayfair Theatre, called the documentary "misogynistic" though she said has only seen clips, not the entire film. She said a controversial film does not have an inherent right to be screened. "They want to be painted as these poor victims of censorship because it feeds into this narrative that they constantly have that women get all the services, women get all the conversation and these men are left in the dust," she said. "This idea of freedom of expression, oh my God, it is so abused in this country. ... No one has the right to have their film shown. And if you are proud to say your film is very controversial, it makes people uncomfortable, then don't be surprised if people don't want to see it of people don't want to show it."

beyond prejudice; these people are genuinely mentally ill and have severe emotional disorders, that are only indulged and affirmed instead of challenged.

16 upvotesTryDoingSomethingNew3 years ago

You are very correct - you don't have to look at extreme cases to see the multitude of mentally & emotionally deficient women (as well as the "male" supporters, also!) who are some of the most outspoken proponents of feminism.

There are common traits of these types, and there are a huge range of easily seen clues in their behavior, speech, lifestyles, and more that show how these are people with emotional disorders.

Additionally, often they at times even state publicly about how they have emotional disorders.

You'll never see an attractive, emotionally healthy woman with a masculine husband and/or family care about the horseshit that feminists do.

Gave me some great material if I ever decide to protest in satire along with them.

I'm a 25 YO guy and even I thought PC fairness ribbons and shit in sports growing up was retarded. Individuals are innnately different, and these heffer nerds want to insist everyone is the same because they wish they could compete with even the baseline average in almost every area of life.

They seem like the truly prejudiced as they do not accept everyone's inherent individualistic traits. Nope. It's the white patriarchy ruining their lives. It really is true about the healthy women not giving a fuck besides maybe some public coddling of the worse off women. Some of the most feminine and women's rights supporting women I know think this blame shifting mentality and such is complete horseshit.

I don't know man. As someone with an actual 'severe emotional disorder' (BPD); that may play a role but I have a feeling it has more to do with the indulgence you mentioned along with an overactive/excessive ego brought on by a lack of real hardships.

It's a fairly good example of the "the one you feed" proverb.

I try to be compassionate for them. It's coming from a place of suffering and it creates more suffering. But it is unfortunate to see.

12 upvotesTryDoingSomethingNew3 years ago

No, he's correct. It requires an absolute lack of healthy mental capacity, as those who are easily indoctrinated into a cult-like metality (and propaganda) are commonly unstable/broken internally.

Your statement about "demonizing" them is quite off the mark, and not related to "anger" - it's a common observation made about them by those not even knowledgable about red pill topics.

I hope you understand that the extreme opposite of an irrational position isn't a rational position - it's an irrational position from an opposite perspective. Radical feminism is deeply flawed, but so is men's rights and The Red Pill. You all claim to have an enlightened position, but you're just as mixed up as the Tumblr crowd. You just have a different vocabulary and a different set of prejudices.

12 upvotesAuvergnat3 years ago

I hope you understand that the extreme opposite of an irrational position isn't a rational position - it's an irrational position from an opposite perspective.

I agree. But I didn't define my position as "the extreme opposite of an irrational position". The red pill is not defined as anti-feminism or anti-tumblr. So I don't think that comment applies to us. Which of course still doesn't make us automatically a rational position.

Our claim of rational/enlightened position comes from the fact that the red pill "works":

  • A man who is sexless can read, understand and apply red pill theory and it results in him getting sex.

  • A man who is married and in a dead bedroom situation can read, understand and apply red pill theory and it results in him getting sex from his wife.

  • A man who don't understand women can read, understand and apply red pill theory and it results in him understanding women, which then allow him to befriend them or work with them or have sex with them or marry them with less bad consequences than the clueless man he was before.

You could say that feminism "works" in terms of the collective advancement of women's rights and perhaps MRA might "work" in the future in terms of the collective advancement of men's rights, but they don't work at the personal level like the red pill does. They don't provide their proponents with a personally better life. Sure their proponents bind together and feel good about themselves by painting themselves as being victimized whether it's true or not (ps: they often are, because everyone is a victim at some point to some extent. That's life. Of course they don't really spend much time talking about those times when they are not victims).

And sure there are a hell lot of angry men on the red pill who complain about being victims of women, and making it look like yet another victimization position, such as feminism and MRAs. In a way, you could say that this "men's victim positioning" is exactly what MRA is, which just goes on to say the red pill and MRA overlap. The issue is that the angered men are the more vocal. As they wise up to what TRP really is and the anger fades into acceptance, these men shut up while they apply the theory and reap the personal benefits.

But once you pass the social posturing phase / anger phase / MRA phase, the red pill reveals the jewel it contains. The red pill is the Manufacturer's Manual to Women's Mind and reading it gets me laid. See, I didn't come to the red pill because I agree with their ideas. I came to it because the theory perfectly explained all my past failures and successes with women (the reasons of which were completely obscure to me at the time), and that since I have learned the theory, I have had no more failures at all and I understand very well all my successes. The red pill is giving me more girls to sleep with when I'm a bachelor and more quality relationship when I am with someone. I only follow TRP to the extent it works this way. The day I suddenly discover a completely different theory that works better at getting me laid, based on feminism social theories, I'll jump ship immediately.

Even though we are aware that this vocal angst creates a target on our back and classify us as just another "victim social movement", we do not condemn it. First because anger is often a necessary stage to understand the red pill, and second because men's opinion being beaten up into a socially sanctioned mold is one of the reasons that men are so out of touch with their masculine essence nowadays.

Yeah the left loves to censor so that you only hear one side. Then they misrepresent the fuck out anyone who disagrees with them.

I think that after Trump a lot of guys are running around thinking that they won but in truth there is a pretty strong movement already underway to shove all this shit back down in the hole it just exploded out of. For example google and facebook censoring "fake" news (not sure how fakeness will be determined but it sounds like some ministry of truth bs waiting to happen). They are still pretty successful branding people as misogynists or racists.

This shit is far from over and if I had to bet I might still bet on the leftists.

52 upvotesNPIF3 years ago

Bingo. The criticisms MRAs have of third-wave feminism is finally unpacked and explored critically in the documentary, which was extremely poignant when Jaye explored how feminists claim to want equality for the sexes in support services, but yet there is only one men's domestic violence shelter in the entire continental US (vs. 2000+ for women). When confronted with the data that men are 43% of DV victims, the feminist advocates denied the data and claimed "the patriarchy" was somehow still responsible.

6 upvotesgirlwriteswhat3 years ago

Don't forget, Kimmel also lied about what MRAs want. He said, "it's not true, but let's just say it is for the sake of argument. If that's the case, we need way more funding. Not to get rid of services for women like the MRAs want."

When Nick Reading ran for city council on the "Patriarchy Party" ticket, we riffed off of this go-to assumption by feminists that we want to get rid of DV services: "By the time I'm done reforming domestic violence services, I promise you, there will be one bed in the province for men, and a dirty dog blanket for women." (Apparently, 448 people in Ward 8 of Edmonton had a sense of humor, though he did come in dead last as expected.)

4 upvotesNikoMyshkin3 years ago

and all it took was actually talk to MRAs instead of bashing them

alas no - she seems to understand, value and apply critical enquiry as opposed to believing what those around her confidently preach. i wish we were so lucky as to have such personalities dominate in feminism (and beyond...)

12 upvotesgirlwriteswhat3 years ago

One thing she said helped was the interview process she uses. All her other films, she just asked a question and let people talk until they were done, then asked another question.

She said after that there were lots of times she wanted to interrupt, and it was difficult to stick with her process.

So basically, if she were just having ordinary conversations with MRAs, she might not have been swayed because she'd have been interrupting and arguing through the whole thing, defending her position. But to make the film, she HAD to listen during the interviews, and then she had to watch and rewatch hundreds of hours of these interviews to decide which portions presented the best argument (from both sides).

That's a lot of listening and not talking.

Part of the reason we all visit TRP is because we acknowledge that our culture increasingly lacks a positive identity for men. One of the central tenets of TRP is, a-la Fight Club, that you do not talk about the red pill. But therein lies a problem - if we cannot have an open dialogue regarding equality in our culture, especially when it pertains to half our populace, we cannot consider ourselves free. We remain prisoners in a gyno-centric society where men are disposable and unwanted. If any of you one day wish to have sons, it stands to reason that we cannot allow this to continue.

One of the common critiques I've heard is, the people interviewed were not Red Pill exemplars. This is a natural consequence of the anonymity and secrecy surrounding a stigmatized cause. Because so few of our own speak for us, we wind up being defined in the public sphere by our enemies or at best milquetoast allies.

The risks of doxxing and real-life trolling and brigading are real, and I respect any man who recognizes his personal need to remain incognito as part of his broader life mission. Far be it from me to persuade anyone to take risks that didn't originate in their own minds.

However, somebody has to speak for our cause, and hold our position. I'm definitely not satisfied with the sentiment that's been expressed to the effect of, "I'm content to let women and faggots do our publicity work."

This movie and its criticisms have given me the final nudge to begin embarking on a more public mission for Manosphere and RP issues. This isn't the first time in my life that I've felt a calling to support a stigmatized cause, so I bring skills and experience to the game. If anyone else has been considering a more public RP face and wants to watch the next part of my plan unfold, feel free to PM me.

When I speak to people, mentioning "The Red Pill" is about the movie. I still do not openly speak about reddit/TRP unless it's with a guy and he's carefully vetted. In fact, the movie helps directing conversation to Reddit/TRP because it gets a brief mention at the end of the movie.

IMO, reddit/TRP is for us. It's our foundation. The Red Pill movie is for the masses. It gets a point across. Those that want more information need to seek it out. Then they'll find us and hopefully with an open mind.

Does the documentary talk about any changes in laws or policies that actually benefit men, perhaps as a result of the film? Or is it just about hearing men out?

I ask because on the surface it appears that the film attempts to create awareness of men's issues. However I wonder if it's really just feminism indirectly poking fun at men by showcasing their disadvantages and hearing them complain so feminist viewers can "drink male tears".

Through evidence, she debunks the hateful rhetoric which is associated with the manosphere, and opens the door for further dialogue around the meaning of egalitarianism in the 21st century.

 

  • Equality ------------------------------> No Attraction.

 

  • Masculine-to-Feminine polarity ------> Attraction.

 

Equality is a Shit Test... it's "failure" personified.

We reject equality as fundamentally a violation of Natural Laws. (gender)

 

Remember our model:

 

Men love women, women love children, children love puppies.

 

Chad Thundercock is the exception because he has a IDGAF attitude and doesn't care about anyone but himself and his short term gratification.

We reject all beta male traits of Altruism.

The Red Pill Alpha male has power and a sense of ownership over his crew.

I'm not referring to equality, which is why I didn't use the word. I'm referring to egalitarianism, which means having equal rights under law.

This film is not about attraction or sexual strategy, it's about men's rights and men's issues (which is why I flaired the post as such).

1 upvotesBattle-Scars3 years ago

I'm curious why she would name her film RedPill which is about attraction and sexual strategy. I haven't seen the movie so I can't form an opinion of it but your write up interested me enough to take a look at it.

15 upvotesAuvergnat3 years ago

Since the Matrix movie, the "taking the red pill" allegory has been used by many groups of people to describe a massive and sudden change in one's perspective of a topic from one that is universally-accepted-and-socially-sanctioned-delusion to one that is little-known-and-bitter-truth.

Quite obviously the allegory applies to the truth about "intersexual dynamics and competing sexual strategies", hence why we took on the allegory for ourselves.

But we're not the only ones using the allegory. For example, I've recently observed users on The_Donald subreddit using the allegory for the truth about "the partisanship of mainstream media".

Here, Cassie Jaye used the allegory to make it about her own paradigm shift on the social conditions of men and women. The fact that she'd use that allegory for a movie topic that is thinly linked to our subreddit is either incidental, or a good PR move.

2 upvotesBattle-Scars3 years ago

Thanks for the clarification. When I google "RedPill" this is what comes up in order, Wiki (allegory), this Sub, and her movie. It will be interesting to see the reaction when someone visits this sub after seeing the movie. I'm not sure they will understand the nuance between a sexual strategy/improvement sub and a men's rights movie. Although related, they are completely different. My bet is a good PR move on her part.

2 upvotesNPIF3 years ago

Good question. I'm not sure if "The Red Pill" as a term originated from /u/RedPillSchool or if it was first coined by another manosphere writer. Either way, it is somewhat ubiquitous and doesn't seem to be "owned" by Reddit's TRP (which is mentioned only in passing in the film, and we were described as wishing to "profit" from the current gyno-centric society).

From the "legal rights" perspective the Child Support Laws (1950) need to be removed and the entire Family Court system dismantled.

You might be pleasantly surprised to know that exploration of child support and fathers rights is a large part of the film. The family court system cannot be fully "dismantled" and we all know that. Reform however is possible, and I think the doc makes a good case for it.

Its like when everyone knows a car is bad. Some manager cucks, force engineers into slightly redesign the car in hopes that it would get people to buy the car. The car flops again, and the cuck manager is floored why their trick did not work. When the engineers, customers, and society knows the car sucks. So, what happens is that is car is removed from the line or goes under a complete design overhaul to be a new vehicle with an old name. We need a new car.

1 upvotesNeoreactionSafe3 years ago

I bought an older model (2007) but high end Volvo. New it was a $40k car.

Here is the design flaw...

They created a built in alarm system that has a built in battery that lasts about ten years before going bad. You can't access the battery. To replace the entire unit it costs hundreds of dollars. If you remove the unit the computer is unable to deal with it's absence and you can get weird secondary issues.

They never considered the long term realities of the car... they just want to get it sold. (Volvo got sold to some other company around the time this car was built, so the engineers likely knew things were going badly)

Child Support Law works to undermine the family because it grants automatic resources to the female without any regard to behavior.

What happens?

Women no longer feel the need to behave well and become spoiled entitled brats.

The optimal situation removes all outside influences (Family Court) and forces things back to nature.

In nature if a woman behaves badly she has consequences.

 

1 upvotesNaughtyFred3 years ago

Irrelevant.

In nature if a woman behaves badly she has consequences.

This would be a form of altruism, the wronged party is given the priviledge of seeing justice ie: consequences done to the wrongdoer..altruism is something you don't agree with.

Intellectual check and mate.

2 upvotesNeoreactionSafe3 years ago

In nature when a man chooses to walk away for a woman there is nothing to stop him.

Child Support creates slavery for men who are "thrown out" of marriage by a woman.

So my "point" (which you didn't get) is that nature gives women negative consequences by default.

Only by a very elaborate Family Court system enforced by jail can the male be forced into slavery.

My point was correct.

We live in an inverted Blue Pill mythology... it's artificial.

Female entitlement only became possible in 1950 when they passed Child Support Laws. Before 1950 if there was a divorce the woman typically became an Old Maid. There is even a card game based on the idea.

You're confused if you think Egalitarianism between sexes is desired or achievable.

That's a large part of what enabled this whole mess, giving women equal rights.

Equality under the law should apply across races, not genders.

18 upvotesNPIF3 years ago

I'm going to have to disagree with you on that one. As human beings we are all entitled to equal rights under law. The problem is when law is applied unevenly.

One of the examples Jaye mentions is how we are cognizant as a society of racial imbalances in criminal sentencing, but blind to the same inequities in gender bias.

Eg: Black men in the US receive sentences 10% longer than white men for the same crime. While men in general receive 60% longer sentences than women for the same crime.

2 upvotes • [deleted] • 3 years ago

Hence why "equal rights" is a bait and switch. Even in the 50s women werent abandoned in the streets to die, like men are today. So even if women didnt have the same access to education and employment - they still had a firm grip on the actual wealth, safety, and health. Failed men who can't pull themselves up by the bootstraps are promptly discarded and forgotten.

I believe the word you're looking for is proselytizing, and if you haven't seen the film you're not really in a position to criticize it.

Jaye's commentary is merely that - commentary. The bulk of the speaking in the film is done by MRAs and counterpoints coming from feminist advocates. Refusal to even consider the viewpoints of Jaye merely because she self-identifies as a feminist at the outset of the film is intellectually dishonest and does a disservice to the men who are trying to improve things for the next generation.

18 upvotesMentORPHEUS3 years ago

This bitch is so solipsistic she discovers all these oppressive indignities afflicting men and she makes the whole fucking film about herself and her "journey" to feeling new feels.

It's basic scriptwriting that you need a theme or trope to tie the story together; that's one thing that distinguishes a movie from a dry documentary that preaches only to the choir. It makes the material accessible and relatable to broad demographics of viewers who would otherwise ignore causes that are important to men. Not to mention, it literally models a woman carefully considering Men's Rights issues and concluding that she can no longer relate to feminism!

There are certainly things about the film worthy of criticism, but it appears you're missing the forest through the anger phase trees.
