The Rational Male – Positive Masculinity

PM_cover

I’m happy to announce today that The Rational Male – Positive Masculinity is now available on Amazon. The Kindle version is now available too.

Positive Masculinity is the newest supplemental reading in the Rational Male series designed to give men, not a prescription, but actionable information to build better lives for themselves based on realistic and objective intersexual dynamics between men and women.

The book outlines four key themes: Red Pill Parenting, The Feminine Nature, Social Imperatives and Positive Masculinity.

Free of the pop-psychology pablum about parenting today, Red Pill Parenting is primarily aimed at the fathers (and fathers-to-be) who wanted more in depth information about raising their sons and daughters in a Red Pill aware context. While not an instruction manual, it will give men some insight into how to develop a parenting style based on Red Pill principles as well as what they can expect their kids to encounter from a feminine-primary social order determined to ‘educate’ them.

The Feminine Nature is a collection of essays, revised and curated, that specifically address the most predictable aspects of the female psyche. It outlines and explores both the evolutionary and socialized reasons for women’s most common behaviors and their motives, and how men can build this awareness into a more efficient way of interacting with them.

Social Imperatives details how the female psyche extrapolates into western (and westernizing) cultural narratives, social dictates and legal and political legislation. This is the Feminine Imperative writ large and this section explores how feminism, women’s sexual strategy and primary life goals have molded our society into what we take for granted today. Also detailed is the ‘women’s empowerment’ narrative, and the rise of a blank-slate egalitarian equalism masking as a form of female supremacism that has fundamentally altered western cultures.

The last section, Positive Masculinity, is comprised of essays, reformed and expanded upon, that will give men a better idea of how to define masculinity for themselves from a conventional and rational perspective. In an era when popular culture seeks to dismiss, ridicule, shame and obscure masculinity, this section and this book is intended to raise men’s awareness of how fluid redefinitions of masculinity have been deliberately used to disempower and feminize men by a feminine-primary social order.

This book was a long time in the making and a lot of that was due to my wanting to create an organized flow of topics as well as to make sure the grammar and syntax was as perfect as I could make it. Like my two previous books, I’ve returned to my most popular essays and arranged them to speak to different themes in the book.

When I began writing, compiling and rewriting this book I had an initial working title – The Rational Male, The Red Pill – however, as I progressed I shifted this to Positive Masculinity. There came a point in my compiling and editing where I’d taken a different path in the purpose of the book. Where I had wanted to explain and/or defend the initial, intersexual, definition of what the term ‘Red Pill‘ has increasingly been distorted away from, I found myself leaning more into expressing ways in which this Red Pill awareness could benefit men’s lives in many ways, both in and apart from intersexual dynamics.

I’d hit on this in my Red Pill Parenting series from a couple years ago and I knew I wanted to revisit and make that series a prominent part of this book. As it sits now, it accounts for a full quarter of the book’s content, but as I moved into my writing more I decided that the best way to really define ‘The Red Pill” as I know it was to go into the various ways men might benefit from redefining masculinity for themselves in a conventional, Red Pill aware sense.

When I finished the parenting section I realized that I was really laying out general, if not prescriptive, ideas for ways men might better raise their sons and daughters in a feminine-primary social order that’s determined to raise and condition them. My purpose with both the series and section was to equip fathers with Red Pill aware considerations in making their sons and daughters Red Pill aware themselves in order to challenge a world that increasingly wants to convince us that fathers’ influence is superfluous or dangerous.

It was from this point that I’d made a connection; what I was doing was laying out a much-needed reckoning of sorts with regard to what conventional, positive masculinity might mean to future generations of Red Pill aware men. Since my time on the SoSuave forums and the inception of my blog I’ve used the term Positive Masculinity. I’ve even had a category for it on my side bar since I began too. From the time I began writing I’ve always felt a need to vindicate positive, conventional masculinity (as well as evolved conventional gender roles for men and women) and separate it from the deliberately distorted “toxic” masculinity that the Village of the Feminine Imperative would have us believe is endemic today.

IMG_3176

I’ve always seen a need to correct this intentionally distorted perception of masculinity with true, evolved, biologically and psychologically inherited aspects of conventional masculinity. This is what I set out to do with this volume. I’m prepared for critics to paint this purpose as some want to return to some pro-masculine glory days of the “chauvinist 1950s”, but the intent is not about building a time machine. Rather, it’s a pragmatic look at how a male-exclusive masculinity has been made ambiguous, distorted or demonized with the deliberate intent of destroying its true, conventional definitions. Furthermore, I layout the evolutionary and biological differences that make masculinity a male-exclusive definition and provide information and encouragement in men’s reclaiming masculinity away from a social order that seeks to destroy it and men.

Some have asked me why I’d title the book Positive Masculinity, worried that it would imply that there is a negative opposite to it. This work sets out to break down the latent purposes of why present day “masculinity” is already considered a default negative, ridiculous or shamed, and how to embrace conventional, evolved masculinity, unapologetically as a source of strength despite a world that wants to erase it.

I hope you’ll benefit from reading it as you have with all my work. It’s been a definite labor of love. The book is a robust 364 pages long. I do have plans for an audio version in about 6 or 7 month’s time.

I’ll be returning to my regular essay postings next week. Thanks for reading.

@Rollo, I think it was a good decision not using the words “Red Pill” in the title of the book. The Red Pill metaphor is about waking up to reality, and as important as waking up to the reality of sexual dynamics is, it’s hardly the only sphere of human knowledge the metaphor can be applied to. The manosphere does not and should not hold a monopoly on the descriptor. I think all areas of thought that use “Red Pill” need to start distinguishing themselves. We need to come up with a more precise descriptor, something like the “Red Pill… Read more »

I will join others in congratulating you Rollo. As a man in the western world it is obvious how important your work is, especially when you can see other men you teach or interact with being on the receiving end of the negative connotations of the female imperative. This book will join the others of yours that I have and will be subjected to a thorough going over complete with note taking like the others. It’s a never ending journey and it is a pleasure to have your work helping me along the way.

There is no scale for men. Just subcommunications:

“its not whether I’m objectively higher value than another man in your eyes or society’s eyes, it’s only in her eyes that it matters. I have higher overall value in her eyes than her favorite celebrity does (who might be higher in certain categories but not overall). The same dynamic is why women stay with drug dealing shitty men etc. despite their friends telling them he’s shitty…his value is low to everyone else but to HER it’s high”

@j – I agree with that, more or less (you missed the Great Looks Thrash of 2016 when this was beaten to death, before YaReally and Scray took off). But there’s still a scale – just subcomms based, not looks based. All I mean by “scale” is that even for men, there is a spectrum of attractiveness, ranging from “awful” to “alpha”. The male scale may not necessarily have numbers, and it certainly isn’t looks based, but men do fall on a spectrum of attractiveness, from more attractive to less attractive. Now this spectrum for men is more variable and… Read more »

@Rollo Positive Masculinity “Women are taught that it’s possible to serve two masters, male-comparable achievement and Hypergamy.”

You either have alpha subcommunications or beta subcommunications. There is no HB/SMV scale like there is for women. 100% belief that you are the best guy she could get (which is projected through your subcommunications (what you feel she feels)) triggers her hypergamy (“in her eyes”). Therefore, she will simply ignore whatever her friends/society says is “high value”.

Subcomms are great, until they aren’t… i.e. “comms” can counter subcomms. And vice versa.

Related, the Authentic tine of the Triad… One of the issues from the earlier dialogue was that of being careful to avoid using mystical “subcomms” as a catch all.

@Sentient – I understand. Basically it’s more useful to think of men as being divided into 2-3 categories. It’s not that there aren’t necessarily gradients within those categories, but for most purposes the three categories will suffice and – importantly – men can’t be fit into a linear scale the same way women can.

@J – I think your point was similar – essentially saying that men have alpha subcomms (category 1) or not (category 2).

Basically it’s more useful to think of men as being divided into 2-3 categories.

If you wanted to redpill your 15 year old son (and perhaps give him nightmares) what would you tell him about women and getting laid? I have knocked out a quick list of Polonius-worthy points. You may agree, disagree, or like to add something. [con’t.]

Perhaps, this is unrelated to this post but it’s gotten to the point I have to say something about it.

By the things I see and observe I am starting to think the term “Alpha” is synonymous with treating people rudely, without regard and then getting butt hurt pissed when they give you a taste of your medicine. The guys who I see claiming or pretending to be Alphas exhibit these traits. Is that what it is then after all?

Not hardly. Although there a grain of lack of respect and rudeness in an Alpha–it goes with the territory. Alphas don’t ask for forgiveness about their personality. They may appear rude, but that is not a virtue nor a goal.

@Jafyk:

In response to your question, no.

Now, if you would be so kind as to reciprocate, are you a serious inquirer who it would be worth my time to enact the labor of engaging with, or are you a troll who would just be a waste of my time and energy?
