Recently I posted a controversial post Women are Incapable of Change, which interestingly helped me identify some weaknesses here on TRP that should be focused on, but also disappointed me a little.
As anybody who has been here for even a short while should know, our language is coarse and offensive, our target audience is men, not children or women. Our language is shorthand and cuts out the bullshit disclaimers and politically correct modifiers that would make every possible fringe group happy with it.
We make generalizations, not because all women are like that- but because it gives us a framework to understand those around us. Even if a behavior only appears 3% of the time in a small fraction of women- you are prepared for it because you understand it can happen... and you understand that the culture is in place for it to happen.
And anybody reading the damn side bar or taking a few weeks to digest what we do here, they'd understand that. So what is your excuse?
how do you explain fat girls who stop eating kfc everyday and then get hot ?
I can see the point they are trying to make; they just went about making it in an asinine way by speaking in imprecise absolutes
Why is this stickied with a less than 70% approval rating in the RP community.
This is an extreme view. Men behave this way too. I have seen women change immediately or drastically in a short amount of time. This view is narrow minded and sexist.
My problem with your post is that all your statements depend on your own observations, which you extrapolated to the whole female gender.
I am as RP as they come. This post is nonsense and shouldn’t be stickied.
This is absurd. You have simply come to the conclusion you wanted to come to and warped the evidence in your mind to fit your view.
You guys wonder why Reddit hates you? That's incredibly sexist.
Get your heads out of your asses
Or do I need to explain that the phrase "get your head out of your ass" does not literally mean I think your head is in your ass?
Gentlemen, I am ashamed of the behavior of our newer members. Instead of comprehending the piece that I wrote, what they've done is precisely what you expect from a liberal arts major feminist hipster: Misinterpret, willfully ignore the point, and police tone.
This might be a game some people are willing to play, but let me speak in no-uncertain terms to drive this point home: This is not a game I play, and the mod team won't either.
When the rules were announced not to police tone, we meant it. This continues to this day. We will delete on sight; repeat offenders will be banned.
Speaking in absolutes, generalizations, hyperbole, and analogy are all ways to communicate a basic set of concepts. The context of /r/theredpill already implies that generalizations are generalizations, we do not bother with or care for the standard disclaimers that make women studies majors and transgendered what-nots with bits and pieces of whatever fucked up sex they wanted feel fuzzy inside.
If you cannot read a piece and attempt to understand what the point was, then /r/theredpill is not the place for you. If you cannot comprehend the meaning, and instead get tripped up on tone and phrasing, /r/theredpill is not the place for you. If you cannot understand that generalizations and sexual strategy is probabilistic not deterministic, /r/theredpill is not for you.
But, but, but, you said 'women are incapable of change' and you spoke in absolutes!
If I wanted to fucking cater to each and every troll that wants to twist words into other meanings, we'd end up nothing but a handful of meaningless words.. and even then they'd still find a way to deem it offensive and demand we temper, censor, and moderate the tone.
Tempering tone and modifying the message IS A RACE TO THE BOTTOM and it will not be tolerated.
"But, if we just change xyz, then maybe people would understand...?" No.
In a completely ironic twist, our female readers from RPW understood the takeaway from the article: If/when a situation like this arises, if a woman says she is "trying" to change, it's a warning sign that cannot be ignored. Change cannot be expected, and progress must be monitored.
People too busy trying to police tone missed the point, but our lovely red pill women didn't skip a beat and instead took a look inside and asked themselves- "hey, have I ever done that?" They didn't say to themselves, "If I process this article like an illiterate fuck, I can imagine he means that all I'm capable of is excuses and never changing..." No, they used their heads and understood the lesson to take away from it. Heck, they might use the essay as a catalyst to change!
RPW here. I realized I use "I can't help it, I'm trying" as an excuse more than I thought. I'm ashamed that after reading this I was actually shocked because of this understanding. So, because of this I reflected and am now changing.
RPW here. This is so true it's painful. Honestly, whenever I was required to change all my excuses were valid and accepted, heck, I was even pitied and patted on the back, with apologies for hurting my feelings. If a male counterpart did the same he'd have been kicked in the ass very hard.
I'm definitely more reactive than I'd like to be. It's not one of my qualities I'm most proud of. I lack will power to things on my own. It's not that I can't do things, it's that going against my will is hard, and it's harder to do it constantly, continually making the right choices.
If you're new here, take a seat, read the side bar, and shut up for a while.
