Just Shut the Hell Up

Hello, I’m author Rollo Tomassi.

As one of the 3 ‘R’s of the manosphere, it’s important for me to encourage more men to unplug from the Matrix that is our present feminine-primary social order, but equally important is encouraging more women to sometimes just shut the hell up.

It’s not that men don’t value your thoughts (unsolicited, they often prove our points), it’s just that we don’t value all of them.

The world doesn’t need your opinion on everything. For example, what men should do with their provisioning and catering their lives by ‘Manning Up’ to fit your overblown sense of entitlement after you’ve exhausted your prime fertility window on the Bad Boys and criminals in your 20s. Hush!

Your contrived cries of sexism over the sexiness of who the next popular video game protagonist should be. Zip it!

Whether or not the color of your foundation is called “Sunset Earth” or “Neutral Beige”. Shut Up!

So as a public service I’ve made the following list of things men no longer need to hear women’s opinions on. Please take a moment away from Instagram to jot these down:

  • 50 Shades of Grey
  • Yoga pants
  • The thoroughly disproven 77¢ on the dollar ‘Wage Gap’ lie
  • Giggling about ‘Dad Bods’ being “sexy”
  • Your confusion about where all the good men have gone
  • Fat Acceptance
  • Red Pill Truths
  • ‘Designer cupcakes’ and hand-baked dog treats being examples of ‘female entrepreneurship’
  • Christian patriarchy in an age of feminine assimilation of religion
  • Any sentence that begins with, “As a woman I,…”
  • Pleas for men’s aid in advancing your feminist ideals at the United Nations after claiming not to ‘need’ men
  • Any form of flavored martinis (or boxed wine)
  • 50 Shades of Grey (again)
  • Whether or not your feminine responsibility to engage in traditional Holiday ‘cheer’ is un-feminist
  • And the complete lack of ethics in all forms of journalism

If you can control yourselves and hold back from further expressing your opinions on any of these topics we’ll let you keep weighing in (uh, heh) on important topics like blow job techniques and pole dancing classes for housewives in shape enough to pull it off.

But that’s a huge, big “if”.

Thanks, so much.

@ YaReally Personally I avoid the dance floor entirely lol I’m old and white, I know I don’t belong on that shit. You don’t wanna learn to dance, that’s fine. But don’t say this rationalization bullshit. It’s like some MGTOW saying, “I’m only 5’6″ tall. Girls won’t even see me, so I’m not gonna go out sarging.” I’m a lot older and whiter than you are, er, also white, and I dance lead-follow dances better than almost any black, Asian, or Hispanic I see out. I’m also autistic. Claiming that you can’t dance because you’re white or old is lame.… Read more »

@YaReally – The focus should be on daily, grinding, and relentless infection of the feminist sphere (meaning mainstream culture) with unflinching brutal honesty.

That is exactly what is taking place. In our lifetime we may not see the needle move all the way back to where it belongs, but our sons will benefit from every success we have as men in restoring the patriarchy.

There will be collapses from time to time, some significant, some serious, but incremental unforgiving push must be our essential ingredient of cultural change.

Learning to dance for a man means learning how to lead and dance leadership transfers partly to leadership in other areas of life. Dancing helps to build a man’s inner frame, among myriad other benefits. I do risky moves out on the dance floor and this willingness to risk… Read more »

@kfg = “Slavery is a mindset. Psychopaths make very poor slaves.”

The placing of chains on a psychopath is an invitation for him to become your enemy, a word that I do not use lightly and with full recognition of the karmic impact of that use.

Chains are evil.

Chains are an imposition of sadism and are to be regarded as a provoked declaration of war.

@gregg – what you say resonates with me. I am for the egalitarian, (equal fundamental existential worth of individuals), as the best conviction to center one’s life around, and for most of life, it seems to provide the most benefits, in many, obvious and very deep ways. Except within the realm of sexual attraction and sexual expression, which isn’t so much anti-egalitarian, as not having anything at all to do with it. I’m starting to wonder whether my problems with not fully understanding women haven’t been more about this dynamic of the egalitarian (if this is the conviction you prescribe… Read more »

“Do we see it as this agency around gender as primarily complimentary but still commensurate, or primarily complimentary but non-commensurate. ” @WildMan Non-commensurate. I think it was in the Plate Theory posts, the thought is: In any relationship, the person that needs the other person the least is the one with the most power. Obviously to satisfy her hypergamy the person with the power needs to be you. Somewhere Rollo said that a rough guide is that there should be a 3/2 her/you division of labor. She wants to know that you could just ditch her for another girl. Loading...

A woman’s forebrain may advocate for egalitarianism, but her hindbrain hates it.

Charlie wasn’t my example. I’m not arguing that you have to be respectable to get laid. Really, you don’t have to have confidence if you want to use hookers.

Confidence or some masculine quality is needed to stoke female attraction, though.

Lol, or maybe it’s socialists trying to get support from women to increase the power of the Apex Alpha which is the socialists.

Seriously, the amygdala isn’t very rational. If a man believes in egalitarianism and attempts to seduce a woman according to the principles of egalitarianism, he will fail miserably. The woman’s hindbrain will hate him.

“Do women appreciate confidence? Is showing confidence a DHV? Lol. Where’s the other YaReally?”

Like I said: “Confidence with women is the vital one (as in confidence to approach them and run all this shit on them and expect it to go well) but other types of confidence (business, climbing mount everest, gym gains, etc) really aren’t necessary to just get laid.”

Pertinent to the discussion on complementarity: the Brookings Institute says men should try to be women and be happy marrying down and being stewardesses and kitchen bitches doing choreplay. Dressing like Pajama Boy is optional. Prof. Reeves posits that millions of years of biological instincts and evo-psych can be overcome in a few easy lessons through doubleplusgood-think (TM): http://www.nytimes.com/2015/11/15/opinion/sunday/mens-lib.html?partner=rssnyt&emc=rss&_r=0 Like all such articles, the paradigm is women have no agency and don’t have to do anything, it’s men who for the good of gen-kind must shape up and man up. If they object they’re just chauvinistic crybabies. One commenter even… Read more »

@Rollo and others – yes I agree with the redpill advice as to how to manage a woman’s hindbrain, and to manage my own, but I am otherwise saying something so utterly simple that maybe my meaning it is eluding everyone. – Men and women are different but equal. If you want to argue about the unequalness of certain attributes, that is obviously there (no argument), but due to the complimentarianism, from at least a birdseye perspective, it balances out. Like Dark Triad Man said: “The scheme of totality will take care of its own balance without your worry. It… Read more »

my wife is complimentary and vastly superior to me in getting pregnant and having babies

“Why does this make me bluepill?”

Because you place your metaphysics ahead of your physics.

“If I am mistaken about how this (2) perspective best plays out for those that adopt it, I would like to hear where I am mistaken.”

It’s babies all the way down.

@redlight – you got it. (she is probably also marginally superior to you in other small ways as well). This is not hard stuff. It is so obvious.

@kfg – So you do (2) and value any woman you are with as lower value than yourself, due to her inferior nature? Or do you (1)?

@wildman

sorry, I should have used the past tense there, since she already had our kids, and now getting pregnant again would be vastly inferior, much like I expect YaReally does not value pregnancy at this time

Emotionally healthy women (which would indicate they are not shitlibs) do not think men are complimentary but superior (from the birdseye perspective, which is the vantage they seem to go to).

I think you got this a bit wrong. They think men are complimentary but only if they’re superior to her. That’s what Hypergamy is: a desire for a man who is her superior to complement her. No one wants to be lead by their equals or inferiors, after all.

Rollo, Totally random thought here. But has anyone characterized the work-ethic between the sexes when there are no performance requirements? I would bet that the need to perform is actually inbred into males, to the point that males are more likely to simply take up something valuable to do when they have nothing, whereas women likely default to making themselves feel better about who/what they are. I would bet that the best way to do such a study would be to study the activity differences between male prison populations and female prison populations. I’d bet anything that male prisoners are… Read more »

@kfg – , your other comments, you are misinterpreting agency. Agency is the power to willfully decide non-deterministically. @Rollo – I disagree with the likes of Sam Harris on freewill. It has been a while since I studied him, but if I recall correctly he argues for a deterministic fee will and is extremely convoluted in his approach and via that approach butchers the concept. His arguments about prior brain events of so-called free-will events, is foolish (see Noam Chomsky for refutation of that argument). @Rollo – the way I see it, free-will is a real abstraction, in the sense… Read more »

No. The very idea that she is inferior is contradictory to complementarity. Which part of “babies” did you not understand?

@Rollo – I have some psychological reasons for adopting the egalitarian view. I had an existential meltdown when I was 12 and nearly went insane. As a way out my terrible quandary, I ended up carefully weighing out evidence for the egalitarian view with the solipsistic view, that my mind was demanding I consider. The evidence for the egalitarian is not as strong as you would think, but that is how I ultimately pulled myself away from the brink of insanity (or perhaps left unresolved that may have morphed into psychopathy), by forcing myself to undertake an existential philosophical audit.… Read more »

@Wild Man: And so your ego clings to that view, because it holds it equal to sanity, even though it may not be true. There are views other than those of your false dichotomy. The simplest of these is; what is, is. But that still does not excuse women from responsibility around moral agency, in my books , , ,” And I can’t recall anybody ’round these parts suggesting that it does. What is suggested is that women will not be the agent of enforcement. The bank robber does not typically incarcerate himself. Catch him if you can. “. .… Read more »

That’s a bit of an inside joke, but the other “R”s are Roissy and Roosh:

Roosh pulled a sudden but inevitable betrayal, throwing nearly all of the manosphere under the bus, and when they responded with, “Hey! That’s not cricket,” accused them of turning on him.

Because God is on his side, or . . . something.

“They all seemed around month five to feel a tremendous external pressure to get a job. Any job.”

And this is where their error occurred. If the net financial gain is going to be zero, any activity where you can at least break even will do. Might as well pick one that actually scratches your personal itch. An actual mission.

“Within 18 months of finding work all were separated and headed to divorce.”

@Rollo – so do you believe everything you do is pre-determined? How do you define yourself? What should you do? The existential meltdown I suffered (for 2 long months) was around the egalitarian vs. the solipsistic. The complementarity concept isn’t really within the existential realm (and if you mean it that way then it is there as a colleague of the egalitarian). It really boils down to – do you think everybody is just as real as you are or not? That is the simple question. Working out the answer is not so simple as some may think. You can… Read more »
