At first glance, this might appear to be a petty dispute over semantics. But I’m writing this post because I believe what follows is fundamentally important to masculine development.
First some background:
I began to sense a while back that there was a fundamental divide in the red pill community, but I couldn’t quite put my finger on what it was.
It was an invisible divide.
For the most part, we can all agree on the important concepts and we acknowledge the reality of a woman’s sexual nature.
But there is something that divides us. It is not the red pill philosophy itself, but rather a difference of attitude towards women.
Specifically, it is one’s attitude towards hypergamy that determines which side of the divide you fall on.
To test this, I posed the following question on Twitter:
Is hypergamy an evil which must be managed? Or a standard which men must rise to meet?
I believe this is the fundamental divide in the red pill community.
In retrospect, I could have framed the question better. Nevertheless, it yielded the responses I was looking for.
At first, I thought there were two attitudes, but turns out there are at least three.
The actual Twitter thread can be found here. It’s somewhat chaotic, so I’ve organized the responses into what I believe are three fundamental red pill attitudes (with one variance):
- Hypergamy is deviance
- Hypergamy is neutral
- Hypergamy is neutral (with potential for evil)
- Hypergamy is (a good) purpose
Here are the responses in all their profanity-filled glory:
(Note: this is an image heavy post. If you are reading via email you may need to go to the blog to see the images.)
Hypergamy is deviance:
Hypergamy is potentially evil:
Hypergamy is neutral:
Hypergamy is purpose:
I think this post is long enough for one day. I’ll give my commentary tomorrow.
