Trusting your gut when dating
Many people recognize that this mindset is very dangerous, but all criticism from women and feminist men only makes fun of their more extreme points rather than offering an alternative to men and boys that are frustrated.
I ask because I want something to offer men my age and younger when they say acting “alpha” is their only way to get the relationship they want. My parents have a feminist marriage, since my mother is the breadwinner, however my parents are not happy together. Part of this is a fundamental lack of compatibility (they didn’t want to get married but did because of unexpected pregnancy), but it is also because our father allows my mother abuse and manipulate him.
My brother’s gotten caught up in the Red Pill Philosophy.
It’s a mindset that shows up a lot in the nether regions of the internet that’s basically a mix of PUA and Men Going Their Own Way, but with a lot more violent misogyny.
In fact, many of these cultural biases end up coloring the study of relationships and human sexuality, letting confirmation bias and naturalistic fallacies distort scientific inquiry.
My father has many positive traits: he is intelligent, hardworking, and caring, but he is socially awkward does not stand up for himself.
He is what red pillers call “beta” and earlier generations of men called “pussy whipped.” My siblings and I grew up in this dysfunctional household without a solid model for how men (or women) act in healthy relationships.
My brother, who also had a long time crush on a female friend that was not reciprocated, “took the red pill” two years ago.
He eventually got a girlfriend (not his crush) which “proved” red pill worked.
