“Rollo Tomassi’s Red Pill Brand”

I’m pretty sure the “red pill” was invented by the WOMAN that wrote the spec screenplay. she sued the big boys and won. that’s one nda I’d love to read.

“What would I get out of that, five, maybe ten years, before that market was permanently saturated with equipment and information?” rippetoe, wendler, mcguff… there is no big money to be made in actually helping men, because when you give a man information he can help himself. wendler lost over 10 million dollars on illegal downloads of 531. at one point he couldn’t even put on his own socks. there is endless big money to be made in “helping” women. which really means giving them an excuse or listening to their bullshit. james ray caused the death of three people.… Read more »

As a notation, when I saw The Matrix I had already read Alice who knows how many times, Flatland several times, Gödel, Escher, Bach a few times, sloooowly and carefully, working all the problems, and a fair amount of Plato and Descartes. Oh, and all the Dick I could lay my hands on. As such, I completely failed to notice the “invention” of the Red Pill, or the Blue Pill for that matter. As it was at one time all the rage among the progressive intelligentsia, with whom I did a considerable amount of elbow rubbing, I also had a… Read more »

It took me the better part of 40 years to put together in my own head what McGuff has put together in one rather small volume, which contains about 90% of everything you will ever need to know about fitness. And about 25% of the book really belongs in another and can be skipped without injury to the vital information, but he was trying to be complete in one volume (and if you have access to Nautilus/MedX equipment I’d have to say he was successful). When I bought it it was eleven bucks. Now it’s fourteen, four bits and a… Read more »

Let me restate the term “Rollo Tomassi’s Red Pill Brand”.

Re-phrasing, call it Rollo Tomassi’s “The Rational Male Brand” of deductive reasoning Red Pill Awareness for masculine strategy.

I mis-charachterized/labeled that and I think you know what I meant, you wise ass.

But you distract from the reason for the distinction. It has to do with actual mis-characterization of The Rational Male brand of Red Pill (and/or misunderstanding).

@ My Bro Hank Wassup man? Okay, this is how I see this rsd thing for what it’s worth to you. I questioned the number of rsd videos being posted here on TRM a few months back, but I only made a casual mention of it to Ya because Rollo didn’t have a problem with it, and it’s his blog after all. But it kept increasing and increasing. It got to a point where one of you guys could ask Ya ” hey YaReally, what’s the temperature today? ” and he’d respond ” Here’s Tyler talking about temperatures….Fast forward to… Read more »

“I think you know what I meant, you wise ass.”

Perfectly, and for the most part I was really addressing the way the Red Pill is generally talked about in the general manosphere.

“The Looks Mater debate, The Marriage debate, all of that shit became unnecessarily nasty and snarky and full of shit”

those were the best debates. guys were typing shit that they would never say to a dude’s face. I found tremendous value in that because it forced me to think.

I love agitators and I love having my “beliefs” pummeled. truth is addictive.

I totally changed my thought process, even if I stayed the same. I thought furiously and hard and found out truths. I’d do it all over in a second without thinking about it.

“You’re upset because RSD is in the process of jumping the purple pill shark and it’s increasingly something you can no longer defend.” Why does any commenter here have to defend content they’ve never endorsed? “You can’t even admit that YaReally ABANDONED the YSGs. (Sure, my writing was hyperbolic and bantering.) Why can’t you admit it?” Truly, in our most dire hour of need, he was nowhere to be found 😖 Ever notice how nothing he said was a novel concept? That’s because, as he often said, all the answers to game and pickup are already out there free of… Read more »

@Hank Didn’t want to comment on this for a while now but I feel you’re ignoring helpful contributions from Sentient and Scray because of mischaracterizations of their positions. They don’t think you aren’t doing any work, they know you are. The issue is whether you are doing the right work. You have restricted the girls you practice game on to girls you find attractive. This is their gripe. Think about it like this. You want to learn to play the electric guitar but you only have an acoustic.

@Kayos Back in the old days, a guy playing football in the back yard that ended getting pissed and decided to take his ball and go home was not of the stature that the tribe expected. That was a WTF? moment. It goes to authenticity and congruence. Notice how I haven’t commented on it up till now? Guess why? I’m not into rubbing in my lifestyle onto some one else. A thing I learned from YaReally. But I sense incongruence and tension with the transition of RSD and YaReallly into the life “After PUA”. And I’ll Damn Mersonia for criticizing… Read more »

@Rollo About RSD being purple pill. A few years ago I was watching a video by Julien (don’t remember wich) and he was talking about how there are lovers and providers, how you can be the lover, that stuff. He cites some evo psy book, I think it’s “Sperm Wars”. After explaining clearly the AFBB dynamics in nightclub environments he says “after you settle down don’t be worrying about some guy sweeping in and “sperm warming” your girlfriend.” I innocently laughed that day but… do hypergamy really only happens in clubs? After reading this site I see the contradiction. Thanks… Read more »

A certain Issac Newton did that very thing a while ago. Not all men have the same tolerance for confrontation and/or BS. My fuse is quite short – something I’ve been working on for the pat 20 years.

It’s pretty obvious to me and perhaps anyone else who is unbiased that no one here was endorsing RSD new-age BS.
Or that Mystery is one fucked up BPer but he certainly broke down PUA for us schmucks.

Anyone who thinks so is just being disingenuous.

Young men get a bit over enthusiastic about things at certain periods in their lives. That’s just human nature.

@asdgamer Tru dat. Career. Money. It seems we all eventually have to tick that box sooner or later. But it appears Rollo would rather what women want to hear be peddled elsewhere and not in here. PUA have a huge role in the manosphere, pickup is probably about 30% or less what it takes to make a rounded solid dude. A man ought to find something of bigger consequence in his life than just darting holes with his dingling. Unless he is just a cock (male chicken). Forgive the pun.

Blue Pill Charter; Article 1, (Clause b) “Thou shalt not make a woman uncomfortable.” But of course! It is true that game can be born out of anger. They say the truth is bitter The unflattering truth about women: They are players. Makes men angry at women for playing them, makes women uncomfortable to be told this truth. The unflattering truth about men: They are easily played. Makes men angry at themselves that they are easily played, makes women uncomfortable about this realization. In this set of circumstances: anger to the man, discomfort to the woman. Therefore: Article 1 (Clause… Read more »

I am not anti PUA but it seems to me they get shit backwards as in they put getting laid above doing all the cool shit that gets them wet

Folks like to dismiss what I say with the word “natural”, but it’s more about being a man who has done some pretty cool shit, the kind of shit girls respond to vs a guy who knows some ” in field tricks” or however its best described

Don’t “come up with” stories to tell girls in clubs so you have something to drive a conversation. Live a few stories. Then you won’t have to worry about “conversing” with them. While you’re living a story, just look back over your shoulder and you’ll probably find there are three or four girls deperately trying to catch up to you.

If one them suits your fancy, let her.

But not for too long.

@Ton I am not anti PUA but it seems to me they get shit backwards as in they put getting laid above doing all the cool shit that gets them wet Ideally you do both. When you do game proper, while you are out trying to pick up girls, you are also out socializing in general and meeting new people and places to go. This is why there is a big push to “open everyone”. It not only gets you in the groove of socializing, but its also how you find new places to go and things to do. Unfortunately… Read more »
