Something I have seen come up in red pill discussions more than once is how the exception is not the norm.
It’s a good point to ponder, as it seems many of the causes, social movements, and just outright over regulation today are being caused by thinking things are “happening all the time” when in reality those things are happening in less than 3 percent of such situations.
Take rape, for example. Don’t get me wrong, I think we all agree rape is wrong and should be reported to the police so it can be investigated, charges filed, a fair trial held, and then imprisonment of said rapists if found guilty, for the good of society. The victim should also get counseling or help rebuilding his or her life. (Yep, men get raped too.)
mi don’t really see a huge pro-rape movement that needs huge pushback. I think most if not all people (besides rapists) get that rape is not ok.
But somehow, despite statistics that show the incidents of rape have been declining for years, on campus after college campus you’d think every guy attending is a rapist. There are regulations and policies to the absurd to deal with the phantom issue. Girls are counseled to see nearly everything as rape. “Omg a guy I don’t like is looking at me. Eye raaaape.” Etc.
There are numerous other equally taboo-to-call out examples where something that affects a very very small percentage of society is for some reason thrust front and center, the hip cause du jour. And God help you if you disagree in public. These sacred “causes” are practically untouchable.
But the sad thing is, or maybe it’s intentional, so much energy and attention is being directed to these types of issues that the issues that affect the majority of us, you know like jobs, the economy, individual freedoms and rights, politics, the law, the future stability of our country and the world, well they are backburner if discussed at all.
The red Pill isn’t just about seeing reality in gender dynamics or about sex, it’s about reality in general and seeing the world that IS, not the world we wish/want/imagine/deny it to be.
Let those who have ears hear.
“(Yep, men get raped too.)”
At least in 2008, twice as many men were raped than women. But in the United States the main stream media conveniently forget prison rape in the statistics:
I doubt the ratio has improved much in the last seven years.
Wow eccentric, thanks for adding that. I had no idea 😦
Perfect example, why is nobody talking about THAT?
A hidden agenda these people always have they do.
Consider how the empire came to power it did.
Hidden agendas everywhere there were.
“Perfect example, why is nobody talking about THAT?”
People do talk about it a great deal…but it’s a source of entertainment. For some reason prison rape is popular schtick. In just about every film or TV show in which the prospect of someone going to jail figures, there will be a “joke” about becoming “Bubba’s bitch” or similar.
I think there’s a bit of a “revenge” aspect to the humor (that’s how it’s justified, at any rate). But in reality the victims tend to be the most vulnerable of the prison population, not the worst offenders but young, often first time, offenders, those without gang-related or other criminal connections, the weak, the effeminate, the middle class.
Rollo this week writes about the tendency of women to quote their own “exceptions” as evidence of a broad generality, in Solipsism II. Pretty soon the babbling becomes so unhinged, and so self-serving, that conversation is impossible.
Likewise, I early on realized that discussing RP with women friends was an express ticket to their defensive arguing, a rage spiral, tears or ridicule — or some combination of all four. “None of my friends are like that!” was the basis of their defense, say, of the divorce courts and child services. Their feelings were challenged, therefore they would rewrite reality in regard to objective reality.
This is an increasing problem as so many people just decide that what they want to believe may be asserted as reality — this is nothing more than post-structuralist narrative spinning. Once any cohort also achieves the higher status of victimhood, moreover, infinitesimal groups of people (transgenders, e.g.) have the moral and State power to enforce their fantasies on the rest of us. And suddenly, testicles are a social construction. This is voodoo-level thinking, truly cuckoo, pre-industrial, pre-western civilization, pre-Christian. I mean, it’s one half step up the evolutionary ladder from people communicating with grunts and barks.
No one talks about prison rape because it doesn’t happen to women, and they are the only permitted victims.
Indeed, female violence is accelerating dramatically, but one academic things all women’s prisons should be emptied and shuttered, because violent female criminals have better things to do with their time than … do their time.
Meanwhile boys who were rude at a mandatory college play are being investigated for “sexual assault.” It seems they ridiculed the tale of college rape and woe, and under Title IX you are not allowed to be rude to people.
“Rollo this week writes about the tendency of women to quote their own “exceptions” as evidence of a broad generality, in Solipsism II. Pretty soon the babbling becomes so unhinged, and so self-serving, that conversation is impossible.”
Darn — I am missing it! I bet it’s about me! Me, me, me! (Jumping and clapping in ebul glee.)
“suddenly, testicles are a social construction”
Rotflmao, indeed! Thread winner there! BV throws a bs flag! High time!
But wait, what about my pet cause? I want social justice, too! Me, me, me! Here, free buttons!!! I have to fight for my rights by golly and you all have to agree or you are oppressive losers. 😛 here’s your button (pins it on). Go forth!!!! The whatever must end!!!!! How dare obe disagree, so obvious! Rah rah rah.
Wait, what day is it again? 😉
@BV I mean, it’s one half step up the evolutionary ladder from people communicating with grunts and barks.
We’re going to be passing the other primates on the way down the evolutionary ladder. It looks like Koko the Gorilla has talent for more than just sign language:
In the good old days we took the high moral ground on intelligence because we could use language and they couldn’t…so we thought…

The stats on prison rape will stay under cover so to speak as it will make a certain protected class look even worse… if that’s possible.
Once it is realized that prison rape is, by default, institutionally condoned then, the state can no longer avoid responsibility.
As for “rape culture” being promoted on campus, isn’t it obvious that radical feminists don’t want ANY men on campus?

Perhaps bear but it is likely the state doesn’t care since its generally more.feral negro behaviour and Whites are heavily victimized. The state always under plays those sort of numbers because the current system is doomed if Whites wake up to typical negro behavior
Men shouldn’t be going to college esp if they if they have to go into debt for it
Reflecting on female arguing styles, this is why Fiorina is so appealing to me, and perhaps to the male electorate. She *never* exploits her special snowflake experience to score political points. She roasts reporters who troll her for talking points. She *always* disagrees by way of facts, observations, and wit.
Granted, I’ve spent a lot of time defending strategy and purpose with private equity, venture capital and investment bankers. Fiorina did so as well, with an organization 800 times larger than anything I managed. But you don’t go into a meeting with these people with a few talking points that some pajama boy scripted for you; you have to think, argue, and substantiate. It’s an order of magnitude more difficult than dealing with MSM suckups who have no idea how a bond is priced, and whose primary purpose seems to be to extract a zinger that will appeal to the Idiocracy.
Just study how Fiorina interacts with her media opponents, and contrast it with how most people deal with strategic, ideological, or emotional conflict. She’s unusual. Which, I suppose, is how she went from a real estate brokerage secretary in an office of a dozen people, to HP CEO.

Is she appealing to the electorate? I know 0 men interested in her around my parts, and very few interested in general, unless it’s Trump making folks his bitch.
I have heard more than several silver hair pro-women type women say not H1l@ry. They over estimate her I believe. We need better ponies to bet on all around. Somebody’s got to turn this s#it show around, am I right??? 😛
By they overestimate I mean her backers… Anyone but… That’s what I am hearing.

And your statement assumes this mess is not what people want, it it is
She’s glamorous, she’s a victim, she’s an Olympic athlete, she’s a loving mom, she’s a hooker: every Red Pill negative cliche about female solipsism, sexual entitlement, and accountability-free living, rolled up into a grand Story of a Noble and Empowering Journey in Sports Illustrated. This is a case of “attention whore” having two literal meanings. Oh, and her husband is one serious cuckold.
The SI story illustrates why it’s pointless to discuss RP: this story is a kind of fantastical summary of most of the major features of RP thinking — only the mainstream take is just the opposite. The happy hoppy hooker is a feminist heroine. She is being celebrated, not viewed with horror. There’s no point in attempting discussion, much less refutation. I can’t wait for the movie.
I haven’t been watching Fiorina at all, but I will start.
Yeah, that SI story epitomizes everything that is wrong. And her book is bound to be a best seller.
“I can’t wait for the movie.”
I hope Southpark does a spoof on it. I imagine the soporifically avuncular intonations of Morgan Freeman in the background, like something out of March of the Penguins. But this version could be March of the Attention Whore.
-Just as Morgan Freeman began in the first “March” with the statement, “This is a love story” so too could he begin with the statement in this version (love of her awesome selfie!).
-Just as the rather pointless birds were anthropomorphized and described again and again as “noble” and “brave” and “intrepid”, so too could whorerunner!
-Just as we endured “the worst is yet to come” statements no less than 500 times (the “worst” being cold weather, in Antarctica! Who knew?) so too we could endure “the worst is yet to come” as we watch whorerunner hop from trick to trick ending up…well, we all know where this is eventually going.
My apologies to penguin lovers, I don’t dislike penguins but I see the scene comparison so vividly in my mind.
I can’t imagine what it’s like to be that woman’s daughter.
We have an olympic athlete here who is kind of similar. Except she doesn’t turn tricks. But she’s been an a track to self-and-family destruction for years…probably since her late thirties. She’s left her husband twice, and had numerous “relationships” with married men in the area. And her (ex)husband is a gold medal winning athlete, too. The kids are really well adjusted…amazingly so, considering.
The movie will be a blockbuster.
Omg too funny! My red pill suitor sent me a package today. Inside? An 8 pound bag of skittles!!!!
Yay I am a skittles girl!!!!
Hee hee Bloom. 😀
Is there such a thing as skittles proofing a gal? I mean now that I have an 8 pound bag of skittles, why would I need skittles from anyone else? Ooooh that’s so smart! (Tingles!)
Even better my girls will be so sick of skittles by the time they are teens, they will be skittles proof too! (Swoon!)
And I know I need to fix typo in the title, you guys are true friends to not point that out yet! Lol
We knew what you meant. 😉
