Apparently a few of you got it into your heads that you've decided you single-handedly get to determine a new subject for the future of the forum.
So Apparently I need to waste time writing a sticky because those people couldn't be bothered to read the first fucking paragraph of the sidebar.
For those of you too fucking god damned lazy to do it, here you are:
The Red Pill: Discussion of sexual strategy in a culture increasingly lacking a positive identity for men.
Wait, I thought TheRedPill was simply male self-improvement?
This is a pervasive concern troll that I've been seeing a lot recently.
No, the red pill is a discussion of sexual strategy. That encompasses everything related to sexual strategy. That encompasses learning game, learning about the nature of men and women, learning the nature of communication, exploiting this knowledge, and building yourself into the version of you with the highest chances of sex.
Trying to reframe this as simply "self-improvement" is kowtowing to serve the feminine imperative. I don't care if sexual strategy sounds bad, or if that makes us misogynists.
I see it a lot on other subs, where guys try to make this subreddit seem more palatable to outsiders- "oh no, man, we're not really misogynists, we are just working towards self improvement." As though putting that positive twist on it changes the fact that we're actually talking about sexual dynamics, hypergamy, AWALT, and Machiavellian forms of communication that take control of frame and exploit human psychology in ways that society would consider to be "wrong".
Sure, self-improvement is one aspect of our discussion. But make no mistake, the sort of self-improvement we're doing here isn't the kind that satisfies our feminized culture. We aren't just working out our biceps and calling it a day. We're working out our minds, we're gorging on information that is labelled "hate" for lack of a better criticism against it. We're taking in information that is so effective when utilized that the entirety of the feminine imperative has done everything in its' power to delegitimize it and us by labeling us everything under the sun between extremist misogynists to neckbeard virgin losers.
When you start deciding that you don't like certain content because it doesn't fit your narrow definition of "self-improvement" ask yourself who you are trying to satisfy with such a stupid self-censoring.
We will not be changing the subject of this sub.
We will not be entertaining concern trolling.
Apparently you need me to spell this out for you, despite the fact that it's on the sidebar.
If the content of your comment or post is regarding or policing the tone or direction of our sub, you are concern trolling. There is no room for that here.
Obviously this came up because there are some people who really really dislike /u/gaylubeoil. I get it. You can't just see content you dislike and leave it alone.
But here are your options:
- Post content you want to see.
- Downvote and move on.
- Attack his ideas, not his person.
Here are not your options:
- Comment on the direction of the sub.
- Decide that in your 3 weeks you've been here, the sub is suddenly in "decline" and you need to make everybody aware of it.
- Attack his person, not his ideas.
- Leave utterly unconstructive comments that don't address the subject matter.
If you don't seem to understand these rules, /r/theredpill isn't for you.
There are no exceptions to this.
EDIT: Just wanted to make a quick edit- while this post still applies, it looks like we are being brigaded by subredditdrama who have been posting a lot of this garbage. Nevertheless, follow the rules. That is all.
