Sup bitches, so I'm an American who for the last two years has been traveling the world (with about four months back home) and obsessing over TRP concepts abroad. I'm a people watcher too, almost the point of it being a hobby as its one of the few things you always can do in public when you don't speak the language, so I'm always peeping how TRP is expressed across the world (spoiler alert: it's universal). Anyways, this privileged perspective has given me some insights that that I think are worth sharing with you gentlemen today. Plainly speaking, out of every country in the world I've been to, the US is by far the most misandrous and sexist of the bunch (followed closely by Germany and the UK). I started noticing this when I would have a plate back in the US after leaving my first harem abroad. I felt a bit like I had been cheated at a used car dealership. With a plate who's just certain that she's a great catch, but somehow doesn't compete with my Vietnamese plate who would insist on doing my laundry immediately after blowing me. Anyways, America being shitty towards men is pretty well known throughout TRP, but I don't see the root cause of it being discussed here often enough. The TL;DR of this is you need to go fucking travel, for an extended time, none of this "two weeks in paradise" bullshit. If you really want to take the Red Pill, get the fuck out of the Matrix for while. This applies even moreso the more butthurt/angry you are (looking at you MGTOW/incels). I can sit here and tell you everything I've seen, but it will never compare to you internalizing it by doing it yourself. It took me about year and half before I really saw how crazy the SMP is back home and that was WITH already being redpilled. Be forewarned that if you do travel extensively, you will probably end up unwilling to even plate western women again, which can be a lifestyle complication for sure. For some related material I highly suggest 15 things I've noticed about American women . I can attest that 15/15 of those points are dead accurate and in the right order of significance (I am not the author). When you're trying to figure out why unconventional social changes are having such a negative impact on your quality of life you *need* to understand those 15 points.
Part 1. Culture shock
When I first got off the plane in Thailand, I noticed something strange right off the bat, Hot girls were nice to me. I'm talking 9s/10s being eerily normal when dealing with me and treating me with human decency instead of trying to interest-shame me without provocation or act terrified of me like I could be some rapist. This was mostly mirrored in every country I would go to. My first thought was, since I'm a foreigner I've just stacked +1.5 onto my SMV, WRONG. Enough people watching showed me that even in cases where some knockout barista is talking with the grossest, most beta, beta, they were always treating them with respect and decency. Something else was going on. The second big thing I noticed about most countries was that Hot girls are everywhere. At any gathering of women under 35, I'm always hard pressed to find a girl under a 6/10. Literally 80% of the aged women are approachable. Sounds like paradise right?
Part 2. Analysis
I started trying to distill down exactly what the differences in typical interactions from back home. The first thing that sticks out with almost all the regular day-to-day interactions with strangers I see abroad, is they are genuinely platonic. At first I noticed how women treated me naturally, but after watching local men I started realizing that they usually behave much differently then men back home as well. Notably, men abroad aren't thirsty. In much of Europe, gorgeous women dressed provocatively get only the most casual of long looks from local men and if a man is at all flustered by a 10/10 it's uncommon enough to get strange looks from people. Theres also a lack of any detectable shame or guilt men express when noticing a pretty woman. At the same time, men abroad still ignore unattractive women, its not so much that no one sees women as sexual objects, its more that high quality gorgeous women are so common, that its not a noteworthy opportunity to meet one. It occurs to me that the longer I've traveled, the more platonic I treat beautiful women and the less reactive I am to them as well. For me specifically, this is a complete 180 from my BP cringey adolescence of barely being able to get a sentence out to a cute girl. Sure enough though, on every trip back to the US, I would instantly be right back to where I started. But when your SMV and general sense of self worth changes so dramatically, so quickly, by merely getting on an airplane, it makes you think twice about why. And herein lies the root cause.
Part 3. Horror
Why is it that seemingly everywhere else in the world I can have platonic discussions with stunningly beautiful women, but at home I get evil eyed by the 6 working at the counter of Starbucks unless I'm intentionally gaming her? Obesity. Consider this.. Anywhere in the world, women are women and men are men. Women in America are so shitty because they're being over valued (ridiculously so) by American men and the reason this happens is because of there are so few women that are not fat in the US. Another hard to swallow pill about that is that ultimately this is our fault as men too, we're the ones giving the constant stream of validation to the few women left who aren't obese. Neither side can change their behaviors, its just a shitty situation. When obesity levels rise, the playbook for women doesn't change that much. She's hypergamous, and looking for someone +1/+2 her SMV, but with less of an emphasis on physical fitness and more of a emphasis on social status in comparison to her current/past mates. Men on the other hand, are selective on physical fitness almost exclusively. What this means is that when a countries obesity rate goes up, the SMV of women as a whole is disproportionately effected. We all already know what this does. When 80% of the men are fighting for 20% of the women we get into exactly the sort of climates that many in TRP are choking on. Sure enough I noticed a pattern in my travels. Universally, the countries with the fewer attractive women are more misandrous. The only other factor I've ever seen to come close to effecting a culture's SMP as dramatically as obesity does, is prostitution, but that's a post for another day.
Part 4. Retribution
After internalizing this, I sort of have a new found sense of pity for my past self and for American men as a whole. Now when I look back on my old life I can see how women in the US really treat men. Abusively. To the point of accepting and even identifying as a SJW now. So many of the interpersonal struggles I used to have with holding frame, eye contact, not being nervous around gorgeous women in general, I now see came from years and years of abusive microaggressions from passingly attractive women I didn't even know, and who didn't know me. I used to bleat relentlessly that "there is no such thing as a platonic relationship between a man and a woman", but what I was really saying was there's no such thing as a platonic acquaintance even between men and women. In the west, I still believe that's true, but NOT EVERYWHERE.
So consider this, you can sit back, and enjoy the decline. OR, you can get outside your comfort zone and see if there's greener pastures somewhere else. I assure you, there is.
