I stopped posting for nearly two years because I basically applied what I learned and didn't really feel the need to participate anymore.

of course that happens too. But over the last ~9 months there's been a marked decrease in activity from older members and quite a few additional endorsed have been added. I know I left due to the slip in on-topic and quality discussion.

43 upvotesrp_valiant3 years ago

originally, TRP was focussed heavily on developing the theory, guiding new users through the phases (most importantly, past the anger phase) and actionable writings like field reports, specific shit test analyses and so on. Now the front page often fills with either pathetic revenge porn (like PussyPassDenied) or rants about specific public/private women or feminism in general. It went from being a sub based on action to a sub based on whining, due to many anger phasers not working through their issues.

upvotes3 years ago

[permanently deleted]

5 upvotesrp_valiant3 years ago

exactly my thoughts - the anger phase should be directed towards fervent consumption of TRP's "critical path" of theory, and pushing hard at the gym and out in the world. TRP should, imho, always be reminding these men that the anger is directed at the lie they've been told by society, not at women. Women are human beings, not magical princesses, and that's a good thing. To get over the anger phase is to let go of the blue pill narrative completely and live in the world as it exists in reality.

1 upvotes • [deleted] • 3 years ago

Sometimes people get stuck in one of the phases because they don't know how to get to the next one. Personally, my anger lasted for a few weeks, until it slowly began to dissipate into acceptance as I learned how to use what I know to my benefit, and how all those things that made me angry actually made sense in the greater whole of things. This inspired change in me.

Some guys get stuck on anger. They cant come to terms with reality or how to manage it, so all it can ever do is make them angry. After all, if they don't see that there is anything they can do about it, what else can they be but angry?

yeah instead of working on their issues, they whine like bitches and take note...some of the whining are properly worded that it sounds like a logical explanation of point of view, but i see it as it is...whining like a bitch who hasn't got laid for a long time...and after whining in TRP, and being agreed upon/upvoted by the likes of them (and there are a lot of them)...get back on playing games or whatever the fuck they keep on doing that doesn't add up to their improvement...they stress me out.

And finding a new gem post is like finding a fruit in a basket full of rotten...stinking ones, and if i have managed to find that fruit most of the times...its rotting inside. I would have rather repeat on reading the Sidebar.

2 upvotesletriggeredface3 years ago

at the same time, Roosh was also trying to turn people against TRP to bring them over to his new "neomasculinity" forum.

Him owning the forum means he has a reason to care about it, his understanding of a need for moderation and lack of acceptance towards things that split the ingroup (no fags, no women) are absolutely great. I dont post on his forums but his view is absolutely correct and the reason why chans will always be superior to reddit.

Its like the guys going "well yeah circlejerking is a problem for all big subs", no its only a problem for people that cant understand the need for moderation. I was lambasted for suggesting that posts including the word Indian result in an instant ban because if you search for Indian its literally "how do i get da white woman" "omg its so hard being indian, my genes automatically stop me from success, disregard that im literally talking like a fatty here going muh genetics". Instead i get called racist when finishing it up with "race doesn't matter, game does, shell pick the alpha indian over the beta white guy". Nah man, I'm just a racist for noticing a bunch of posts that are near identical and have the same answer as the million ones before it.

A good moderation team is all you need. The sub wants to expand though, which means that the more people you get the more difficult it is to enforce. So between more people or more quality, its easy to see what won out. The meme LURK MOAR doesnt apply here like it does in chans. Ultimately we will never solve the quality problem of the sub until mods begin to ban people by the masses. This would be fine but, MUH POSTER NUMBERS!!! I GOTTA GIVE A SHIT ABOUT MUH INTERNET POINTS!!! FLOOD THE SUBS!

7 upvotesrp_valiant3 years ago

we all know there's a small number of Indians who repeatedly post here who are self-loathing losers. That doesn't warrant banning all posts with "Indian" in them because then you're kicking out Indians who might well have race-specific feedback. Strong moderation is necessary but the problem there is that as the sub grows and more moderators are needed, suddenly you get mod drama and infighting/politics within the team that runs the place. I've seen that a few times myself, outside of reddit.

1 upvotes • [deleted] • 3 years ago

it's also been discussed and broken down very well on the theoryofreddit sub. Funnily enough, was from one of the main mods in tumblrinaction.

Explains the phases of sub, and general subscriber numbers that the phases change.

-5 upvotesvandaalen3 years ago

So instead of being a valuable member of this community, helping to counter the trend by providing quality content, you choose to conviniently come and go, leech off when there is something of value to you found, and probably even chime in from time to time just to complain about how shitty this sub has become?

Does this about sum it up?

10 upvotesrp_valiant3 years ago

nope, not at all. When I see the direction of the sub change, towards something I personally am not interested in contributing to, at some point I have to say "this isn't a place for me any more". You have to consider that I have my own life to live, and that I am more than happy to contribute when the topic of conversation is related to my own interests but when it starts to drift to the point that there's nowhere for me to add to, there's no point hanging around. When the conversation drifts to "muh globalists" or "feminism is evil!" and everyone's chiming in, including endorsed and mods, I take my leave. When it goes back to theory and strategy, I return. It's quite straightforward.

I mean... it's sidebar material. Once i found it, I spent probably almost a month just reading through ALL of it before actually regularly visiting the subreddit. The subreddit as far as I can tell is just FR's and meta discussion of the sidebar material as people experience and interpret it in their lives.

2 upvotesrp_valiant3 years ago

there's a lot more on the sub, but it was all written ages ago and has obviously fallen off the front page. The sidebar material used to just be a canonical selection out of a massive pile of resources. Now it's mostly "wahh feminism is bad!"

7 upvotesalways-be-closing3 years ago

It doesn't hurt that new members will see specifically the sort of content we're looking to expand on,

Without fail, on the rest of reddit and in real life, dropping RP observations wins plaudits from men and women, so long as they aren't personally being criticized. I don't know how much 'back to basics' work it'll take, but in the long run, it'll mean more people get helped if they can be kept from just dismissing everything out of hand.

I applaud you for this. The reason I stopped browsing TRP was because most of the posts were being made by newbies who didn't even read the sidebar stuff. Then the newcomers get distorted advice from other newbies and devolves into an anger-phase circlejerk.

Another great idea would be to have thread submission only for people who have browsed the subreddit for at least 3 months. This is what they do on /r/steroids, and I think it helps a lot.

1 upvotesJohnCh8V323 years ago

Another idea could be CAPTCHA-type tests for the first hundred posts each new account makes, with the CAPTCHA material being questions directly drawn from the sidebar material.

13 upvotesTheRealMewt3 years ago

On the contrary, I find it kind of ironic. Restricted submissions were supposed to put the brakes on all the junk threads that have cluttered this place in recent times. But the restriction is supposed to end very soon and with every bit of free advertising the rest of Reddit gives this sub comes an influx of new subscribers. Oh I can't wait to see the kind of garbage that fills the front page from even more people who don't get what this place is all about.

6 upvotesNeoreactionSafe3 years ago

Well the Jerry Springer Show posts are generally under the category of "Field Reports" where we hear some terrible story where some hard working Beta Bucks comes home to find his wife having sex with Chad Thundercock only to later have to experience a Divorce Rape where the wife gets everything.

We then end up talking about how a woman has a Hamster logic where she can completely flip in a second and do this type of terrible thing to a guy who is so beta that he is essentially a child mentally.

The purpose is to give wisdom to boys trying to be masculine but not knowing how to be.

In short...

Men desire Freedom, Women desire Access.

So for a man his masculinity is formed by establishing ego boundries and this creates his mental Freedom.

For women it's about Access to "everything" so it's a different orientation on life.

Much of Red Pill is about exposing the truth which is hidden in the Blue Pill mythology.

And that mythology is forced into us through all the Blue Pill emotional indoctrination methods from schools to tv to news reporting.

This is not a vetted Red Pill source, but I found it yesterday and it's really detailed about the Blue Pill and how they craft it:

2 upvotesNeoreactionSafe3 years ago

A great example of a guy losing Frame.

Internal Freedom (Frame) is the ego boundry that creates the Masculine Polarity.

Without the stoic solid Frame a man is Androgynous... Beta.

You can generally determine a guy who is Beta by him getting really upset over things which is what that video is about.

Amused Mastery is when through the wisdom acquired through Frame you get a sense of distance from circumstances which allows you to laugh because you completely comprehend what is going on.

If a guy isn't laughing he's losing... the losers are Blue Pill.

3 upvotesNeoreactionSafe3 years ago

The question becomes:

"Is this a temporary thing or are we about to lose the rough and tumble masculine atmosphere of the Red Pill Men's Club in a quest to become mainstream?"

...that isn't clear yet.

I was thinking this morning... the Red Pill group are the:

Dot Connecters

While others focus on the herd mind which does not connect the dots the Red Pill gains distance through our masculine Frame and from that distance we see how the dots connect.

The Androgynous beta male slave is too immersed in his emotions to get this distance and so he never connects the dots.

This is why:

"Kill the Beta" is really "Connect the Dots".

And once dots are connected it permanently changes the person.

...though in some sense the first step is to break some previous incorrect dot connections.


1 upvotesPornography_saves_li3 years ago

To be fair, the term 'The Red Pill', going right back to the Matrix, consists 100% of "the truth". Its even an explanatory line in the movie, presumably to avoid confusion.

This reddit concerns itself primarily with 'the truth about women and sex', but that is not now , nor has it ever been the entirety of the Red Pill, either as focus, or mindset. There are many Red Pills. Those that acquire a taste, and are thus willing to consider ideas labelled kooky by the mainstream.

0 upvotesNeoreactionSafe3 years ago

The process of dot connecting requires Freedom (separation) from emotion.

It's the concept of stoic wisdom... the ability to have an objective view of how the dots are connected.

The conspiracy theory emotional manipulation is the globalist Blue Pill system saying:

"No, now look, you can't just connect any dots without our approval. All dots are to be connected by 'comfirmed sources'."

And of course the "confirmed sources" are all bought and paid for by the very people at the center of the crime which the theory exposes.

The Red Pill is in a universal sense the Whistleblower Cult.

We connect dots... we think for ourselves... we have Frame... we are Free... we see the Crime.


With that being said there are also disinformation theories that are injected into the internet to distract and confuse people.

So one guy might be a whistleblower and another guy actually part of the system creating disinformation.

The way you tell the difference is with "Intelligence" rather than simple "Intellect". With "Intelligence" it has to make sense intuitively as well as intellectually.

In most cases you must follow the money because that tends to not lie.


1 upvotesPornography_saves_li3 years ago

I have a simpler theory. The Red Pill tells men to think for themselves. Which makes identifying the fakers rather easy.

1 upvotesNeoreactionSafe3 years ago

The PUA portion of Red Pill objects to being called "fakers".

  • X-Axis : Frame

  • Y-Axis : Game

...they are independent paths that one can go in.

Ideally the fully realized Alpha has Frame and Game at high levels.

The Beta has neither Frame nor Game.

PUA tends to favor Game.

MGTOW tends to favor Frame.


1 upvotesRPsage3 years ago

That makes sense. When I was at a work conference a few months back, we drank together and I told them some red pill truths. Afterwards, one of the guys told me that "I have a bird eye's view" of it all.

Even when men are wrong, it has logical reasoning. X + Y = Z.

"saying I'm a feminist + taking her out to dinner = sex"

Men are hard to convince because they can have "frame" towards their wrong assertions. Distance (mindfulness) is important to realize where we have been screwing up.

1 upvotesNeoreactionSafe3 years ago

Well that's the "Kill the Beta" process.

There are some Blue Pill mythologies that have to be broken before the dots can be connected in alignment with the truth.

Remember Rene Girard...


Essentially all primates imitate.

So the boy naturally absorbs the Blue Pill through simple imitation.

This is why older people often seem "out of fashion". The young seeks to imitate as it's first goal and obedience to the herd mind (fashion) is central to that. As you age and if you acquire Frame you imitate less.

You can spot the unwise older person because they try to imitate youth fashions.

(I'm 55 and see this)

1 upvotesIVIaskerade3 years ago

TRP has cycles of learning.

You join, you take shit you read a bit. You think you've got it figured out, so you start posting. You start trying things out in real life, you realise that maybe you don't have things as figured out as you thought. You go back and read more. You grow more, and start posting again. You hit another hurdle, and the sub-cycle restarts. This cycle is the basic way humans learn, so it's hardly surprising.

On a macro scale, this manifests as one of 4 phases:

Phase 0 is the standard complete stranger who either hasn't heard of TRP, or disagrees with it if they have.
Phase 1 is the initial "oh hey, that actually seems accurate, and I agree with that other thing" initiation. Phase 2 is where they agree with what TRP says. Phase 3 starts at the point that they begin to question AWALT and leads to a complete unplugging from TRP. Phase 4 may never happen, but if it does, it creates a much more nuanced understanding of TRP.
Broadly, these phases go "NAWALT -> AWALT -> NAWALT -> AWALT"

I would argue that blue pillers actually like us. If you look at the top posts in our archives, you'll notice that some of the top posts are actually blue pill advice written in a dark tone. Its the tone that people don't like, not the content, however the advice is great, and its not misogynistic in anyway -- we cherish women and accept them despite knowing their true nature. However, the tone we use actually contributes to bringing us new members because SJWs do the advertising for us.

What I would really want to understand is what part of TRP do blue pillers not like?

In regards to "proof that women like to be led" just look at the Milgram Experiment.

When pushed by a figure of authority, 75% of the participants issued what they thought was lethal punishment to a person in another room.

What you don't often hear is that the tests were divided into men and women.

5 out of 10 men issued deadly shocks.

10 out of 10 women issued deadly shocks.

Women are followers.

Bsutansalt delivered some purple pill. I wonder if it's good for TRP to advertise ourselves as less extreme than we are.

For instance, he didn't answer the question "do you think equality has it's place on TRP?". Of course not.

And about manipulating....of course we manipulate women. There is nothing wrong about that, they do manipulate men 1 000x more than us on a daily basis. And advertisement manipulate people too. Even nice guys manipulate through covert contracts.

45 upvotesdisposable_pants3 years ago

"do you think equality has it's place on TRP?". Of course not.

That depends entirely on what type of "equality" is being discussed. The presumption that equality means men and women are equally capable of any given task, for example, is clearly pretty far off the mark. Men are better suited to more physical jobs, and there's a reasonable amount of evidence that they're more naturally suited to certain subjects (note that women are likely better suited to men at some things, too). Men and women aren't just humans with different sexual organs; the differences run deeper than that.

But if equality means equal opportunity for the sexes, I don't see a good reason why anyone wouldn't be all for that. If on a truly even playing field a woman is a better candidate for a academic program/job/whatever, there's no reason she shouldn't get it over a less-qualified man, and the reverse should be true as well.

5 upvoteswimmyjales3 years ago

Opportunity and encouragement are two different things. You should raise a daughter to try to shoot for the stars in whatever she wants to do with a strong emphasis on the importance of her ultimate duty as a mother. You shouldn't change fitness requirements to incentivize more women to become firemen. I mean, do what you want, but your choice should be shamed because you will get a lady killed one day. I think a lot of us are just calling for more common sense in society.

17 upvotesdisposable_pants3 years ago

You should raise a daughter to try to shoot for the stars in whatever she wants to do with a strong emphasis on the importance of her ultimate duty as a mother.

I wouldn't describe it as an "ultimate duty," but I would emphasize that she's probably going to want a family one day and that she probably will be unhappy on a fundamental level if she puts that off until her options are scarce.

You shouldn't change fitness requirements to incentivize more women to become firemen.

Obviously not. But if a woman meets all the regular fitness requirements, I'd have no problem considering her for the job. Similarly, I'd have no problem hiring a brilliant female engineer just because women as a whole may do worse in that field.

7 upvoteslook_good3 years ago

TRP embraces reality. People qualified for the job deserve the job. Manipulating hiring prerequisites to fulfill a quota is retarded.

Most women don't fit the qualified category in the fields you mention.

And it's exactly this point that feminism largely does not get. Instead of encouraging this type of thinking in the female, feminism largely wants to drag mens rights down to achieve 'equality'.

When I first came across TRP several years ago, I didn't swallow. Then a series of life events led me back. I read the entire side bar, the book recommendations, and the top rated posts. I went from lurking to contributing as I tried to make sense of it all.

Fast forward a few months/year... I walked away from a toxic relationship. I dropped from 18+% to 13% bf. I hit a lifting personal best a couple weeks ago. I've taken up a couple new hobbies, have a new job, and have a clue about how to handle relationships, and I'm an EC.

I don't put too much stock in it, personally. However it's a useful approximation for helping give advice over the internet.

5 upvotesZadocPaet3 years ago

I agree. MBTI is a scam in as much as you pay for it. Typically it's zero. I've worked in training and development and instructional design my entire professional career. I've created a team building class around MBTI that I put on. It's not scientific, but it does lead to general realizations that are useful.

1 upvotesRP_Vergil3 years ago

MBTI is like a Generalization Class people wish to identify with. Much like how humans want to be identified with a Group, MBTI allows them to feel "Special".

It's a funny thing that most people wouldn't want to be "labelled" but are excited to be proclaiming that they are a certain MBTI Personality Archetype.

13 upvotesCyralea3 years ago

It's only a scam if you can't use heuristics as a guideline. MBTI is a means of providing a rough model of human personality types. As /u/bsutansalt mentioned in his interview, it encapsulates a significant portion (80-90%) of people accurately, even if not 100% so.

1 upvotesthrough_a_ways3 years ago

1 upvotesTurnDownForWhat3 years ago

Whats this interview? I must have missed this please link.

Edit: nvm I'm an idiot.

1 upvotesjethreezy3 years ago

While the MBTI may have some predictable powers, it is quite a flawed model. Wikipedia does a good job of highlighting its limitations.

The most damning criticisms I found are:

  1. No evidence for dichotomies - all 4 dimensions are normally distributed, not bimodal. For example, someone who's 45% N (i.e. 55% S) would be more similar to another person who's 55% N (i.e. 45% S) than either would be to people on their respective ends of the N-S spectrum, but the MBTI tries to convince otherwise.

  2. Factor analysis - "Researchers have reported that the JP and the SN scales correlate with one another. One factor-analytic study based on (N=1291) college-aged students found six different factors instead of the four purported dimensions, thereby raising doubts as to the construct validity of the MBTI." This is precisely why I believe the Big Five, although by no means perfect, is a better model than the MBTI.

  3. Reliability - "The test-retest reliability of the MBTI tends to be low. Large numbers of people (between 39% and 76% of respondents) obtain different type classifications when retaking the indicator after only five weeks." This challenges your assertion that it encapsulates 80-90% of people accurately. From anecdotal experiences, I've also met quite a few people, who were the archetypal socializing shunning introvert, become party animals once you get them out of their shell. In other words, the MBTI seems keen on prescribing a certain amount of immutability to a given individual's personality type that is simply not consistent with reality.

Lastly, based on extensive research, I find the whole construct of the different types of "functions" to be very contrived. For example, people with extroverted sensing (Se) are proclaimed as being well attuned to the outside physical world, supposedly correlating to behaviors such as being athletic, prone to becoming gluttonous, indulgent material wealth, etc. But I've seen these traits in many people who do not have Se in their "stack". And the whole Ne vs Ni differences, where the former is characterized as a scattered creative function and the latter an inwardly-focus insight function, are just some baseless pseudoscientific theories.

2 upvotesIAMAwhitecismaleAMA3 years ago

I treat it like an iq test. Plus, reading up on the 16 different personality types really gave me insight into the way I work and what actions I should "practice" to act more "normal." I was INTP, but pretty much everyone on the internet is too. It's like a cheat sheet for whoever you want to be.

Also, I'm pretty sure MBTI is a scam. One of the guys who is on the board of the company that makes the test says that he doesn't trust or use the test himself.

From what I read it's definitely controversial, but then again it's more accurate than the alpha/beta dichotomy we often use here.

It says on Wikipedia that it was constructed by "Katharine Cook Briggs and her daughter Isabel Briggs Myers". Referencing a test that was designed by two women shows that TRP doesn't automatically reject and deny the contributions of women, and this wouldn't be the first example. In other words, we give credit where credit is due.

3 upvotesniczar3 years ago

The alpha/beta dichotomy is pretty accurate when it's used to describe specific behaviors here. It's completely inappropriate when describing people, in part because this does not correspond to the complexity of human social structures (it does not even correspond to wolf behavior in the wild for that matter.) And then it's not even a dichotomy in that sense, because that's forgetting omega males.

The medium matters here. Outing yourself as a TRP supporter has far more negative externalities than positive. But making this place more visible and discoverable to men searching for an answer? Few downsides, if any.

In all, congratulations to those of us here. We aren't all misogynist failures looking to blame women for all the woes of our society.

If the goal of the whole thing was positive PR, this is not how you do it. While his answer is true, it's way too heavy hitting as an answer to a first question. I just think it could have been said differently. I was more impressed with the interview on The Guardian, the answers were truthful yet swallowable.The line I quoted isn't in my opinion.
