Earliest Redpill moments you remember?

January 28, 2016

I'm not always sure each person who comes upon TRP was onto some of the idea before ever discussing it with other people. I'm fascinated to hear some of the things that clicked with you at your earliest ages?

In 8th grade a girl was completely in love with me, but I was dating her friend, I broke up and was a complete mess, and cried in the shoulders the girl who wanted me, that shit stopped right there, she was completely over me in that second, I was no longer cool an mysterious. We were 14.

good example to show that it all starts early on

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (3 children) | Copy Link

early on

14 is early? What. Most girls lose their virginity by then now a days....

[–]Josewasframed 0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy Link

Should I have said 13? 12? what would you have preferred?

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy Link

I would say pre teen(11, 12). In my experience that's around the time when it really starts.

[–]Josewasframed 1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Oh I'd agree. My original comment assumes that girls have that disposition from well before 14, more likely they start viewing the world that way around puberty age or just before.

The first moment when things clicked for me was back in high school, summer of '04. I had broken up with my 2-year LTR over the spring, gone into what I would now call Monk Mode, dropped the extra weight, started lifting, stopped giving a fuck (it didn't last long but it lasted enough for what followed).

A few mates and I were reading PUA material back then, it was the days of Mystery and Neil Strauss, we didn't know what the fuck we were doing with girls either way. We approached in clubs chiefly for the thrill and as a mutual dare, got shot down at high percentages.

For the summer we went to Ibiza, party capital of Europe, plenty of chicks and thirsty boys from our age up to any age. Clubs were clearly age-demarcated, there were those for kids (cheap) and those for adults (expensive and they didn't let kids in).

I was sore about the breakup, as a reaction I truly didn't give a fuck about anything and especially women and their shit, but I was also still a pussy when it came to approaching them. The sum of these two tendencies was that I was actually approaching in a fairly effective manner, without going in too insanely hard but also without really much in the way of hesitation.

The 'click' moment was after making out with a chick 2 minutes flat after approaching her on the dance floor. I had imbibed some liquid courage (didn't take exactly much to make me tipsy back then), went in, threw up some bullshit lines in semi-decent English (might have been something along the lines of "You're cute, let's dance"). Making out with ass grab in 2 minutes flat. Big moment for me ;)

The 'click' moment wasn't making out with her, it was witnessing the looks that her friends gave me after. They weren't shocked, or angry, or upset, or any of the shit that I would have expected in my "girls are supposed to be all about stable loving relationships with good guys" worldview. They were looking at me not unlike she was. It was attraction, what I would now call the tingles, and I bit of envy for the friend maybe.

That's when I realized that there was at least a part of womankind that really didn't go along with my idealized bullshit view. It took me many more years to tear it all down, a lot of fighting with my previous feminist programming and with exception-making ("ok most women are like this but I can find the unicorn who isn't"), before just accepting it. But that was the first moment when the veil opened and I peered at what was beyond.

I wish I could tell you that I took her back to our apartment and fucked her brains out on the king-size bed. But me being still a pussy about casual sex (I had only had sex with my LTR and it was after months of dating, both of us virgins) and the logistics of the situation being far more than I knew to handle back then no, we parted ways after a little while. Still, pretty fucking good for little old me.

One of the earliest clicking moments I discovered was in middle school when a bunch of guys were picking on me in front of a few girls they knew I liked. At this point, everyone, my family, the teachers, everyone, told me to keep my head down, turn the other cheek and let these bullies have their way with me. One day, I got so fed up that I decided to actually push back, which ended up breaking out into a 1vs3 punching match. Granted, I was trained in martial arts all my life, so it wasn't hard at all to fuck these guys up. And so I did. We were all bruised and bloody. We all got sent to the detention and the usual scolding and punishments were all handed out. Despite me getting punished with the other three, that one event changed the way EVERYONE looked at me, including from the bullies. I suddenly became the cool kid, all because I stood up for myself and showed a little integrity.

The old story of your dad taking you out into the backyard to show you the ways of the fist, is shamed upon by the feminist society of today. But make no mistake, the feminist society is only looking out for 1 thing and 1 thing only; themselves. And I might add that they don't even agree with each other.

When I was young and just getting into dating (18 or so) I worked as a barista at Starbucks and got to see the full spectrum of the hamster. From every chick I worked with fawning over the buff dudes in line to how they would complain about the betas would leave their number for them, to how they would manipulate my coworkers and I into doing their work for them and how they turned on any unworthy male coworker that would hit on them like a pack of hyenas and would get them fired for harassment.

I was just getting my toes in the water at the time and it was eye opening and extremely useful for me.

I lost my virginity to a girl that was studying in my hometown, and still had a boyfriend in her hometown.

She told me she was dating the guy for 2 years, but she told me she was still a virgin (I believed at the time, not so sure if it was true now tho lol).

She used to call her boyfriend and right after hook up with me, sometimes she even stoped the making out to talk to her boyfriend and then resume like nothing happened.

I still treated her as if she was an innocent little girl at the time, this is how clueless I was.

But, thinking about it now, I never saw women the same way after this girl.

Had a bunch of people over finishing a night out drinking. Been talking with this new girl, gave me a cold shoulder most of the night. She was nothing special, was hot but kind of a prude if anything.

She was complaining that she never stayed out this late as the sun was coming up. I told her she'd be staying up even later cause she was gonna be desperate to message me when she got home.

Half an hour later the texts wouldn't stop. We went on a couple of dates before I realized she wasn't worth the effort.

I remember as a teenager, hearing my girlfriend say "I don't want sex! I just want to cuddle!" and me thinking "Wait... she gets to demand what she wants, but I'm WRONG to request what I want? What kind of fucked up logic is that?"

Then of course the programming I was getting was that yes it was horribly wrong for me to place a high value on sex, and also wrong to expect to get what I want when I give her what she wants.

Later in life I learned it was perfectly okay for me to expect my needs to be met.

I could go on and on about individual instances of things clicking, but for the sake of brevity, I'll say I resisted it for months. One of my good friends kept sending me post after post of Theory and BP Examples backed by footage of how women behave in society with impunity. I look back on those months as wasted time knowing what I know now. I go out of my way now to take things on their merit instead of dismissing them unless I know what the fuck I'm talking about. I was that way in academia, but when it came to challenging the lies I was fed, I was drug kicking and screaming by the Truth and I still learn things today, but each lesson is easier and easier.

1987: Girls and guys from from the 7th grade wanted to hang out at the mall. I went in the wrong entrance since I wasn't a mall crawler and ran into the gigantic 300# security guard Bubba, who had previously kicked me out before because the mall had a rule about more than 5 boy teens together. Bubba and I had made up a few weeks later after the mall yelled at him because I actually was really well liked by a few store owners I was trying to get to mentor me.

Bubba saw me and asked where I was going and I jokingly said "to go meet up with 15 of my teen friends. You should grab me by my arms and throw me out, they'll love it.

So I found my friends, we were hanging out by ChiChi's which was attached to the mall but supposedly owned their property instead of renting. Bubba saw us and turned to demand our exit.

I stepped up in front of the group and said "what are you going to do? try to kick me out?" So he reaches for me and I take 3 steps into ChiChis. Now he's screwed -- I'm off mall property. My friends all slowly slide into ChiChis and Bubba steps back into mall property.

I started to dance over the line -- into the mall, out of the mall, into the mall, out of the malls. The guys are SILENT and the girls are all telling me to be careful, that he'll arrest me, etc.

Finally I say "someone's gotta fight the man" and step out. Bubba grabs me by my arms and walks me out the front door and says "don't come back for 2 weeks." Then he winks at me.

Come Monday in school, I'm the talk of the school, but every girl I crushed on was on me like white on rice. Me, the only biracial kid in an all white school, with parents who barely spoke English.

I asked my pops about it and he said "women don't like good looking guys, they like guys who take risks, who aren't afraid, who go their own way" or something like that.

I took it to heart and never acted scared again in school. That summer I lost my virginity with a gal much older than me because I didn't show fear and basically barked commands at her and she ate it up.

Life was changed the summer of 1987. Got rid of my D&D, my video games, my GI Joe dolls and my conservative sweater vests.

I took women's studies in my second year of college to round out my perfect lib-arts degree. Decided to do exactly what I did in all my other classes, adopt a contrarian opinion for the sake of argument.

First time I was ever threatened with bodily harm for playing devils advocate on the third day of class, I knew that something wrong was going on.

Flitted between subs including r/feminism and r/mensrights before coming here and discovering TRP.

I do not always agree with the conclusions of many of this community, however I respect their right to say it. Plus many of the arguments posited here are compelling yet are simply not pursued by the wider population because it defies conventional worldviews which I believe is an atrocity.

In my fifth form, we were in gym class and I hadn't gotten around the bases in rounders. One of my female batchmates mistimed a toss so I'd (quote) "feel better" about my efforts. The other day, she told me she'd done this on purpose at which point, I informed her that, to me, the goal wasn't as important as the effort put forth to get to it.

Went from gfless, kissless dude to a guy who made out, got head everywhere and fucked in the same day.

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
