The Necessity of a Purple Pill
Since this subreddit started out about a year ago, not much has happened. The usual posts every week or so seem to be concerned with applying Red Pill theories to gay men, leading to a „twink/alpha“ or „top/bottom“ dichotomy which mirrors the inferiority complex inherent to many gay males. The originating idea of The Red Pill and the dominant discourse is that of two dualisms.
- Men vs. Women
- Alpha Men vs. Beta Men
In this subreddit the dominant translation is
- Men I befriend vs. Men I fuck
- Straight-acting Males vs. Flamboyant Males
This translation is idiotic as it is lazy as it tries to fit the power dynamic between men into a corsett of straight perception and Red Pill truths. If there is anything to take away from the Red Pill for gay men, then wisdom should be rethought and reapplied. Just copying concepts on feminism won’t take us anywhere.
Why the Purple Pill?
Look at this subreddit. It’s purple. Why is it purple? Because The Red Pill generated a whole bunch of uninspired sub-subreddits that try to apply the given truths to their own miserable lives. Original content on this sub recons of preachers trying to tell victims of a terrible natural disaster about that one time Jesus lost his faith in god. The Red Pill doesn’t apply to you, because you are a faggot.
The inferiority complex of this subreddit and the gay community in general brought us here, trying to please the main subreddit, as a younger brother trying to become like his elder. We won’t and you won’t. We won’t get anywhere by playing by their rules. Copying the main concept led to the decision that there should be some sort of equivalent tot he original concept of swallowing a pill. This subreddit is an offspring and this is how we behave. Why purple? Heck, I don’t know. Probably because pink was taken and it had to be gay. If it were me to decide I would have called it „Faggots seeking truth“ or something like that. Not as catchy as Purple Pill though. The whole „altTRP“ bullshit too often seems to be about denying that you want to have some penis up your ass, in your mouth and god knows where.
The Purple Pill should be a place to explore ideas from a straight community and take a gay perspective on them.
On gay liberation
So, what is the difference exactly, between the gay liberation front, which has been closely linked to the feminist agenda and me, asking you to embrace your sexuality? The difference is that this subreddit shares the idea oft he alpha male, of the empowerment of one man by his pure will and power. The gay liberation should never be forgotten, as it brought us to a place of abundance and peace. You can in fact fuck around, openly state your compassion to another dude and even marry him (although this is an opportunity I will not discuss in-depth and do not plan on doing so anytime soon).
In the last twenty years we have seen a steady rise of the queer culture, a term which has been used to discredit cocksuckers and been reinstated as a word of empowerment and diversity. In the same vein, I will call you a faggot and I strongly ask you to get used to it.
The queer culture has its own agendas. Although it came from a place of empowerment and the desire to achieve equality, it has grown to include a whole bunch of interest groups leading to confusing letters thrown together LBTGQIDK, and whoever names the most wins – everyone else is a cis-fucker. The thing is, you won’t be able to pursue your mission, to become your better self and accepting who you are, when you are constantly asked to help an even minor minority out. This is why we faggots made our own place. Because the main subreddit would not take us in. Now we created this bullshit in the hopes of playing with the big (RedPill) guys. In the same vein, transgender people ask of us to support their cause. But it is not our game. It is not our fight. While accepting, that The Red Pill does not care about us, we should also accept, that we don’t care about problems arising from being born between two sexes. This might seem harsh, but The Red Pill principle is one of generalizations and you came here, because you wanted someone to make your life easier. This is what you get.
This is an issue I will likely pick up in future posts and it something you should be aware of. Many gay men will suppress their urge to suck some juicy cock to become a perfect beta that doesn’t even care his wife is fucking around. By accepting the sexual urges you are one step further from a self-hating beta.
I mentioned the queer culture which sparked a whole new net of role models for every confused teenager imaginable. There is nothing to say against that. As discussed in The Misandry Bubble role models have a certain control about who young men want to become. Obviously we have to aknowledge, being an out teenager at an American high school is far easier, than it has been 30 years ago. Be can also see, that certain stereotypes manifest themselves and are performed by struggling teenagers to please or reenact what has been showed before. This argument obviously goes both ways. The queer agenda has been to diversify the representation of gays in the media, making it possible to behave like a fucking disney princess all the time.
We might not be very pleased by these representations, but we should also be cautious about stating, that not all gay men are like this. Let them do the talking. People will notice if you don’t fall into their vision and will either think you’re straight or they will have to reassess. If you constantly talk about you being different from all the other faggots you just sound like a bitter fuck.
The question should thus not be What is more natural? But How do I want to live? It is obvious, that most ideas about the suppression of the male apply to The Purple as they do to the Red Pill. The general assumptions about a post-feminist society apply to all men. Thus reclaiming your life is in need for gay as it is for straight men.
Paradigms of gay behaviour
When talking about gay men, the general idea of applying the Red Pill is to treat some gay men as if they were women, while others will be respected as other men. In the same vein Beta males are often seen as those being passive or so-called „twinks“. I have seen this term been used by straight guys on The Red Pill to transfer the general idea to a gay lifestyle.
The thing is, that every man has the potential to swallow the Red Pill or should at least have a chance to. Treating other men like betas or „women“ will likely keep them in that state, which I find disturbing. You should keep that in mind when choosing who to fuck.
On the other hand gay men are very likely to adapt female mating strategies. I have often seen the very unpleasant controlling and manipulative behaviour known to the Machiavellian type of women destroy a relationship between two men. Gay men seem to take up some of the manipulative behaviour they observe from their mothers and sisters and apply it to their own lives. We have to be careful.
When looking for a LTR you should be able to nourish the qualities of an Alpha male in your partner and give him the possibilities to develop his ideal self. All my relationships have been with guys I would classify as Beta (and I wasn’t better myself). Constant talks about the state oft he relationship, fear of being lonely and infidelity have marked the men I dated. When you cannot accept the independence of your partner, you should probably not start a relationship anyway.
I am touching on many subjects here, and many ideas have to be spread out over time. I would like this community to flourish and am writing this up half-assed, so other minds can come in and correct my views. Lastly, I do want to point out, that there has been some quality input and I do not intend to disregard everything that happens on this subreddit. I fit weren’t for some great contriubutions, I would not even be here, writing down my thoughts. I thoroughly enjoy should_’s submissions and I believe there is some potential in this subreddit.
