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.

If they are pretending or “claiming” to be – then you haven’t actually found one.

Jafyk I would say the men who are routinely rude to you see you as a bitch and are testing you to see if you will butch the fuck up and respond to the challenge like you got a big ol set of hog nuts or if you are going to remind weak an non threatening.

If you chose to remain weak then you chose to be of little value to any collection of men.

Sentient Category 1 – Alpha [displaying the triad Dynamic, Passionate & Authentic traits + “just getting it” Good, good, you finally got it: the DPA traits may be necessary but they are not sufficient, and “just gets it” is clearer than “red pill aware”. Congrats. Case in point: The fighter pilot I’ve known for over a decade was very DPA (figher pilots tend to be that way) but in his blue pill delusion he imported an East Asian woman to marry. Long story short, it was one of the ugliest divorces I ever saw where nobody died. He’s been into… Read more »

Again.. For you… DPA is the answer to “what is Alpha” and what is universally attractive to women. The irreducible elements.

Red Pill Aware is not a condition for biological success… Sex.

“Just gets it” i.e. understanding the female language of seduction – game to dogs – just accelerates the process of sex or increases the scope.

You keep this “not sufficient” bit hanging… I assume you mean some kind of over arching philosophy of eternal inter-sexual happiness. That is covered in shorthand via hewing to The Platinum Rule. 80/20 and scant memorization required.

Every time I read DPA in here I am reminded of the blue pill wishes that exist very deep inside most men, probably planted into the subconscious by their doting mothers when they were babies. Many “alphas” you have ever met would rather have the girl who “loves” him. He subconsciously knows that girls he meets “love” the alpha they see in him. Not him. He wishes girls would still “love” him if he got weak someday. But he knows this will never happen.

If anyone cares to see a perfect example of just how asinine, sickening, vulgar and obnoxious the FI has been given license to act, then watch the last episode of The Bachelorette “The “Men” Tell All”. It is truly the most nauseating disgusting manifestation of everything the FI has inculcated into our rotting culture. The show basically ends with a group of manginas huddling together and petting each other. Chris Harrison may as well have wrapped up the episode by saying, “The show is ending now so cut your dicks off and throw them in the trash on your way… Read more »

The $8.99 I spent for the kindle version of Positive Masculinity is possibly the best money I have ever spent. This book is excellent, really hits home and articulately concisely spells out many of the neuances of this reality. Thank you Rollo. I will be passing it along to everyone in my circle. I think it is important for all of us to do the difficult thing, the thing we most fear, about sharing this knowledge and that is to share it with those whom we fear may try to persecute us for it.

I want to make this short and sweet. This is the best book out of all 3. I am a red pill father with 2 daughters 9 and 11 years old. (That was what I was dying to read!) how did you raise such a smart red pill daughter? I’m worried (my gut) I’m fucking up some how.

@Not Born This Morning August 3, 2017 at 6:51 am Wearing masks is energy consuming. Even though one may have tons of excess energy. (I judge those commenters on TRM that are positive about Red Pill and Game have tons of it.) Lying to yourself is somewhat Beta. An Alpha doesn’t need to qualify him such to others. Wearing masks for manipulating others in inauthentic. As such, I believe in the Law of Least Effort. Having less energy leads one to be less Dynamic than they could be. So yes indeedy not wearing masks is a “good” thing in my… Read more »

Well I guess I put the comment @4:28 pm in the wrong comments section. By the Way, I bought the print version of the Book for $13.99. I figure that it will cost me another $500 to upgrade my bifocal glasses because of the tiny typeface of the book. But I did save $6.00 buying the Kindle version under the Kindle Matchbook price of $2.99. Totally worth it and the writing of the third book is fantastic through 120 pages. You can’t put a price on a Red Pill education. Great Job Rollo. (BTW, I’m not being autistic, I’m trying… Read more »

example: some guy gets on an elevator with a couple of buddies and I notice his arm is amputated between the elbow and wrist; he says something about his golf game and I say, “so what’s your handicap?”

honest feedback and insight about yourself from another is hard to come by and pure gold in my book, many thanks

” . . . never labeled it ‘shit-test’ before . . .”

When guys do it it’s called “giving each other shit.” So, ya know, totally different, because grammar, or something. It’s a fitness test for a hunting/fighting team. You want guys who don’t go around popping their corks at every little thing and making everyone go home hungry, or dead.

Some things often go without saying. I hate when that happens.

“..when I do it, I just kinda think I am making a funny or fucking with them for sport, never thought about the ‘why’ I was doing it” It’s coming from your heart and your mind is not getting in the way. Keep it up. Purpose and Action (choosing opportunities that present themselves and taking action) takes precedence over inner desire and intending to do something some day, one of these days. You are doing things right. In addition to testing your mettle, it’s also nice when guys in all male space give you affirmation you deserve. That is what… Read more »

I’m a woman recently introduced to the world of the red pill by my ex boyfriend. As I’ve gone deeper, I’ve experienced shock, relief, a complete breaking down of everything I thought I knew, fear, sadness, excitement, and quite a bit of anger. I have a unique background that includes childhood molestation and teenage rape, a “deadbeat dad” and a knight stepdad in shining armor which ironically lends itself to my not completely falling into many of the societal traps of feminism, male disposability and the like, which is why my ex even gave me a chance in the first… Read more »

“help me in overcoming such biology”

That’s not the point of TRM. The point is to understand the dynamic as is and choose what direction you’ll take with that knowledge.

Overcoming malfeasant social conditioning is possible, overcoming you biology is impossible.
