More Red Pill Discourse

Posted on | October 23, 2019 | Comments Off on More Red Pill Discourse

Returning to a theme that provoked some interesting comments yesterday (“Trouble in ‘Red Pill’ Land”), I notice that Adam Piggott has up a post entitled, “Do ugly men get laid?” And the answer, obviously, is yes they do. What Piggott points out is that many “incel” types blame their looks for their lack of success with women when, in fact, this is just a rationalization for their shortage of audacity. Success with women requires a certain insouciant boldness which the “incel” lacks. Such men are often described as being “on the spectrum” of austism, but rather than play armchair neurologist, I would observe that the loser tends to be an introvert by nature. Rather than seeing this as a personal problem to be overcome by self-improvement — learning how to introduce himself and make small talk — the introverted “incel” often resorts to a sort of sour-grapes rationalization about his unpopularity with women. The problem is not that he is a loser, but rather that women are cold-hearted, selfish sluts. This is the mentality that results in Elliott Rodger declaring himself “The Supreme Gentleman” before going on his revenge rampage.


Self-pity and envy are the worst of human emotions, as they reflect an abnegation of personal responsibility. It’s like Hillary Clinton claiming that “Russian collusion” cheated her out of the presidency, rather than admitting that she had every advantage in the 2016 election and lost because of her own clumsy blundering. Or it’s like those purple-haired SJW feminists who insist they are victims of patriarchal oppression, when the truth is they are just lazy, rude and stupid. Finding a scapegoat to blame for your problems may be emotionally satisfying, but it won’t solve your problem if the real problem is you.

What’s wrong with these guys?

A rising percentage of young American men report they are unable to find sexual partners, according to data from the General Social Survey (GSS) at the University of Chicago. The percentage of U.S. men 22-29 “reporting no sex in the past year” has increased more than 50% since 2009, from less than 10% to more than 15% of respondents in 2018, according to GSS data compiled by University of Virginia Professor W. Bradford Wilcox. The declining sexual activity of Millennial generation males has reversed normal behavioral patterns. Until 2010, young females in the GSS were more likely than males to report no sexual contact in the past year; now, the “no sex” number is significantly higher for under-30 men than women in the same age cohort.

The plural of “anecdote” is data, as they say, and there is evidence that we are in the midst of an epidemic of cluelessness. My hunch is that a lot of these guys, like Elliot Rodger, have unrealistic expectations about the quality of female companionship they deserve. “Beggars can’t be choosers,” as the old saying goes. If the number of notches on your belt is zero, what does this say about your rank in the hierarchy? “Generation Incel” seems to imagine they should be scoring with blonde sorority girls, when they can’t even work up the nerve to ask the chubby checkout girl at the grocery store for a date. Fear of failure seems to paralyze these losers, and they become passive spectators in the sexual marketplace.

“There’s a fixation with their physical appearance and shame they have so little experience with women,” Boston University professor Emily Rothman said of her perusal of online “incel” forums. “There isn’t a middle ground of ‘what can I do to acquire the skills that I need to connect with women?’ There seems to be a fundamental lack of understanding of how dating and attraction work and that it isn’t solely about appearance.” If you consider yourself doomed, this will tend to become a self-fulfilling prophecy, and this is why Professor Rothman notes the lack of a “middle ground” on the incel forums.

These guys have made failure the basis of their identity.

Meanwhile, other guys are ruining their lives by dating Miley Cyrus:

Miley Cyrus appears to have taken a subtle swipe at her ex-husband Liam Hemsworth — and, actually, most other men — while praising her new boyfriend Cody Simpson as ‘good people’.
The Wrecking Ball singer hopped on her Instagram live on Sunday evening to share some dating advice for her 100 million Instagram followers while drawing on her own experience.
With Cody, 22, sharing her live screen, Miley explained how she thought she ‘had to be gay’ due to the assumption that all men were ‘evil’.
Explaining why it took her so long to start dating Cody despite knowing each other for years, Miley said: ‘I was being a little too hardcore for him and his vibes and not allowing anyone in but now I am.’
Appearing to take a swipe at her estranged husband Liam Hemsworth, the popstar continued: ‘There are good people out there that just happen to have d**ks. I’ve only ever met one, and he’s on this live.’
Addressing her sexuality, Miley continued: ‘There are good men out there guys, don’t give up.
‘You don’t have to be gay, there are good people with d**ks out there, you’ve just got to find them.’

As I explained when Miley dumped Liam: Never trust a bisexual.

Having humiliated her ex-husband by publicly cheating on him with Kaitlynn Carter, now Miley’s claiming that she has suddenly found the one man in the world who’s good enough for her — and how long do you think this will last? Six weeks? Six months, maybe? Sooner or later, Miley will discard Cody Simpson, and what does that say about him?

Anyone with two eyes and a brain can see she’s bad news, and yet some guys are still foolish enough to fall into her vast chasm of craziness. These fools deserve whatever humiliation she inflicts on them.
