Have you ever heard of a man taking the “red pill”? It’s a reference to that famous scene from The Matrix. You know the one.
In the movie, the blue pill lets you stay plugged into the phony reality created by the machines while the red pill shows you the real world. In the men’s rights world, the red pill allows you to see that our world is really FEMALE DOMINATED, not male dominated. Red pill philosophy gives insights into what society is really like, what your role is really like, and what women are really like. Things you won’t hear in popular culture.
The best of the “red pill” gurus is Rollo Tomassi. He’s married, has a background in evolutionary psychology, and has never struck me as a sexist or a “woman hater.” I found Rollo Tomassi’s first book, The Rational Male, to be extraordinary. I also liked his next two books, The Rational Male – Preventive Medicine and The Rational Male – Positive Masculinity.
Now, before we get into the best quotes from Rollo Tomassi’s books (and all of these quotes are from his books), let me make one request of you: keep an open mind. The quotes you’re about to read are contrary to everything you’ve probably seen on TV, in movies, and that you’ve heard in popular culture. They’re also blunt and written specifically for men, so this is not a perspective that is concerned with women’s feelings. As Rollo Tomassi himself has written:
I ask you to clear your head of the preconceptions you have of gender because what you’re about to read here are very radical concepts; concepts that will challenge your perspective on women, men, how they interact with each other, and how social structures evolve around those relations. You will violently disagree with some of these concepts, and others will give you that “ah ha!” moment of realization. Some of these concepts will grate on the investment your ego has in certain beliefs about how men and women ought to relate with each other, while others will validate exactly the experiences you may have had personally with them. Some are ugly. Some are not complementary of women and some of men, you’ll think I’m a misogynist on first glance because it’s the default response you’ve been taught to react with. For others, you might feel some kind of vindication for getting burned by your ex and realizing what was at play when it happened. I realize it’s a tall order, but strive not to let your personal feelings color what I lay out for you here.
With that in mind, enjoy the quotes!
1. From Positive Masculinity:
At present, boys drop out of school, are diagnosed as emotionally disturbed, and commit suicide at four times the rate of girls. They get into fights twice as often, murder ten times more frequently and are fifteen times more likely to be the victims of a violent crime. Boys are diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder at six times the rate of girls. Boys get lower grades on standardized tests of reading and writing, and have lower class rank and fewer honors than girls. At universities women now constitute the majority of students, having surpassed men in 1982. In the next eight years women are predicted to earn almost 60% of bachelor’s degrees in U.S. colleges. Women now outnumber men in the social and behavioral sciences by about 3 to 1, and they’ve moved into such traditionally male fields as engineering (making up 20 percent of all students) and biology and business. Elementary schools have been “anti-boy” for several decades now, emphasizing reading, communicative feminine learning styles and restricting the movements of young boys. They feminize boys, forcing active, healthy, and naturally rambunctious boys to conform to a regime of feminine-correct obedience and pathologizing what is simply normal for boys. As psychologist Michael Gurian argues in The Wonder of Boys, despite the testosterone surging through their limbs, we demand that boys sit still, raise their hands, and take naps. We’re giving them the message, he says, that “boyhood is defective.”
2. From The Rational Male – Positive Masculinity:
However, it is important for a Man to bear in mind that his SMV (Sexual market value) will eventually exceed that of any woman if he continues to improve himself and grows personally, physically and financially into his SMV peak years. There will eventually come a time when a woman’s SMV will decay to the point that her necessitous will exceed her value. In other words, due to her fast burn-fast decay SMV, and recognized or not, she will eventually need a Man more than he needs her when he enters his peak SMV phase and she’s declined to the Wall of her own. It’s during this critical phase that a woman must rely on her man’s socially expected love, charity, obligation and parental investment to maintain his secure attachment to her in the face of an obvious SMV imbalance. As I’ve covered before, women fundamentally lack the capacity to appreciate the sacrifices men make to facilitate women’s reality – and once those facial wrinkles and cellulite can no longer be disguised by makeup or collagen, women will still persist in the expectation of monogamous obligation, in preference to the genuine desire, love, devotion, etc. a man may legitimately feel about her regardless of her wrinkles.
