The Best of The Rational Male – Year Six

Last weekend (August 19th) this blog entered into its seventh year, and once more it’s time to do the blog retrospective.

The Books

First and foremost last month I released the third installment in the books’ series, The Rational Male – Positive Masculinity. It’s about a month since its release now and I’ll admit it’s already exceeded my hopes and expectations. I know, everyone says that, but as I’ve learned, most authors struggle to match their earlier successes.

While this is still true of the first book (it still stands as the best seller and most popular) Positive Masculinity seems to resonate quite well with readers. I’ll admit I had some hesitation about focusing a quarter of the book on Red Pill Parenting, but this, it turns out, is exactly what’s catapulted it to a best seller in the Fatherhood and Parenting Boys sections on Amazon. For the initial four and a half weeks the book has held the number one best seller rank in Fatherhood and the number two and number five spot in  Parenting Boys. And for the first week and a half it held the number one best seller spot in Self Help.

At the risk of sounding like I’m glossing myself here, this is an incredible response when you consider the impact this book, written from a Red Pill perspective, might have in a mainstream reading world. It’s a great honor, but also a bit scary considering the social backlash of recent events. All the books continue to make inroads with men (and women) unfamiliar with Red Pill awareness, but the response to Positive Masculinity has been very promising so far. That said, the book is about much more than just parenting – which also adds to its overall appeal – so I’m hoping it will open some new eyes with regards to Red Pill awareness.

As things stand today, Sam Botta is finishing up the reading and mixing of the second book, Preventive Medicine. Sam is still struggling with medical complications due to his hit and run injuries (I’ll let him explain them in the comments), but the hope is still to have the Audible version of book two available in time for the 21 Convention at the end of September. For the audio of Positive Masculinity I’m still deciding as to whether I’ll do the read myself for this one, but my goal is to have it available in Q1 of 2018.

I should also add that the first book has seen its second retranslation. Beginning in Q4 The Rational Male will be available in Polish as well as the previous Korean version. I get a lot of readers asking for translations into Spanish and German (possibly Dutch too). This will be a priority for me in the coming year, so if you are a translator or know one who would like to partner with me to publish these translations please leave me a message on my About page.

Finally, I do have plans in the works to do a re-edit of the first book to address syntax, grammar and spelling issues. Contextually nothing will change, but once this revision is done I’ll be publishing a hardback version of The Rational Male through Barnes & Noble’s self-publishing format.

Blog Traffic

The blog continues to grow with regard to audience. 2016 had a slight decline from the previous year, and 2017 is on track to eclipse it, but the reach of The Rational Male still continues to grow.

I know Alexa.com isn’t the best metric, but it’s largely what most bloggers in the Manosphere use. These are the stats as of August 22, 2017 and I daresay these rankings are respectable for a Red Pill blog that’s never been monetized or advertised in six years. These numbers put me in good company amongst the most notable writers in the ‘sphere (as well as a few Purple Pill ‘life coaches’) and the blog continues to average just under half a million views per month. My general focus for the blog has always been as a delivery device for the message of Red Pill awareness, Game fundamentals and the unmoderated debate of intersexual dynamics. I’m pleased to see that in six years this discussion has proceeded in the same vein for all of them. Furthermore, I find it very encouraging when I’m told by Manosphere outsiders that The Rational Male is the best (sometimes their only) source for rational debate about Red Pill awareness and intersexual dynamics. I am not now, nor will I ever be interested in a Red Pill echo chamber/hug box and for six years the comment section has proven to be a ‘hot kitchen’ in which both critics and advocates can (largely) hash out the Red Pill details.

A lot has been made of free speech advocacy in the ‘sphere for a few years now. My stand has always been one about the free exchange of ideas. The only way an idea’s strength and merit can be tested is in the crucible of open debate. There are a great many Manosphere celebrities banging the gong about free speech who nonetheless block, edit and censor opinions they disagree with on their own forums. One purpose that this blog has is a free and open debate and (with the exception of spam and blatant trolling) will always be open to counterarguments.

The 21 Convention

As most of my regular readers are aware, I’ll be making my only in-person appearance at this year’s 21 Convention in Orlando, Florida, September 28 through October 1st. For more information on this event have a look at my rundown of it here. Furthermore, I’ve done a couple of interviews with 21 Convention founder Anthony Johnson about my participation and the talks I’ll be giving here and here.

If you haven’t made plans or purchased a weekend ticket I would encourage you to do so soon. The convention is getting close to being sold out, but if you have some issue with cost or you have some kind of hardship consideration and you really want to go, please contact myself or Anthony and we’ll work something out for you.

It bears repeating that I was less than enthusiastic about appearing not just publicly, but at this convention in particular. It’s always been my impression that the 21 Convention was a collection of largely Purple Pill dating coaches and not really in line with what (sometimes ugly) Red Pill awareness reveals to men. However, I’ve come to change my view of this convention in light of Anthony’s much more Red Pill focused line up for this 10th anniversary meet up. I’ll admit I had a hand in helping Anthony get what will amount to a Red Pill summit arranged. I really think this weekend will be a seminal event for Red Pill aware men and it’s my hope it will be something to help men change their lives.

This then is my very brief rundown of the 2016-2017 year for The Rational Male.

So here’s what I thought represents the best posts from year 6.

Let me know what your favorites were in the comments and let me know how TRM has helped you this year.

With humility and gratitude,

Rollo Tomassi

It’s my reference manual when it comes to intersexual dynamics, I owe you a massive debt of gratitude for opening my eyes to the realities of how things really work versus the Disney romantic fantasy.

Congrats Rollo. Hats off.

Reflection:

After reading Straus, I realized that there was a time PUA became a very popular movement; a craze. However it seems to me that most of the PUA gurus have since moved on in search of a “deeper experience” after coming head on with an inner craving for “a deeper connection”. Probably the fad that had been the PUA movement withered because of the kid-with-dynamite thing happening to both Mystery, Style, and probably Roosh too.

I hope nothing of the sort happens to Red Pill.

“I hope nothing of the sort happens to Red Pill” Actually it has. While TRP used to be filled with anger phase posts (women are sluts with poor impulse control), it is now about self improvement (today highly upvoted post “Work on yourself, as only you are important. Dress well, get a haircut, work out, work on your social skills, professional skills, tone of voice, mentality, view on life and your own interests and passions”). Likewise some guy might have written about a book about Preventive Medicine might now write a book about Positive Masculinity, and that book could be… Read more »

Cheupez The problem with PUA as an ethos is that it is merely a tool and won’t replace maturing emotionally. So you see all the PUAs (except Mystery) that have been in it a while lurch towards “transformations” or some other “growing up” act beyond poosy uner alles. The problem though is they are still emotionally immature and needy and just replace poosy with some other made up thing to signal they are grown. https://www.instagram.com/p/BD5twu1rEr6/?hl=en Very few grasp the opportunity to live a Dynamic, Passionate and Authentic life.

thanks Rollo, you did a great job (as usual) of articulating something I had a nagging concern with. I was reading a question on ASKMRP, about a guy concerned his wife might be going on a date like activity. The core answer is that there are no shortcuts, quick fixes, so Lift, STFU, read, reduce bf%, lead, dread etc. Okay, but no use closing the barn door after the cow has left the building.

If any man has doubts about the necessity of Rollo’s “Red pill parenting” section, take a close look at the Amazon graphic in this posting. Count the number of “Strong mom” books. Sure, we all know that women frivorce men from time to time and wind up as Strong/Independent Single Moms, but how many does it take to create a market? A lot. When I work around college men I remind myself that about 40% of them come from busted homes.

I don’t get how Mystery is not in the Dynamite League. If I got Strauss right, towards the end of Project Hollywood Mystery almost died of oneitis and it would appear to me he has never been the same ever since. I would strongly agree with Sensei. Understanding the nature of women is more important than just having game. I think it comes down to that a man completely digesting and internalizing the inner workings of the female psyche. Such a man is better equiped even without game to navigate the minefield that is intergender dynamics. I remember laughing quietly… Read more »

Enlightened self-interests, masculine self-improvement (when needed), Red-Pill intersexual awareness and Game. @Redlight, in the AskMRP thread that you are referring, I believe some of the answers by some of the more senior masters of MRP covered the bases pretty well, on acceptance of how things were for the OP-er the nuances of mate guarding and clues on how to be contextual Alpha when recovering from Beta… Read more »

@SJF Game has a lot to do with how you appear to women. Appearing cool=good game.

Armed with the knowledge, even a chode can make an objective evaluation of himself and then of the women he interacts with, and he can tell where he is likely to be on her scale: (want to fuck vs willing to fuck vs will not fuck).

Self inprovement vs unplugging have very different outcomes.

As I read other blogs and many posts here I detect the self improvement angle is often a partial unplugging ….adopting just enough game or Red Pill knowledge to get over someone or something.

Without total unplugging there’s a tendency for that self delusion to creep back…like a wart that has t been fully burnt off.

Changing from situation #2 to #1 requires one to transform from couch potato into a gamer. May be that is what you did. But a couch potato who understands that a woman can only offer him is negotiated sex and not genuine desire, one who knows that only a mother would give his fucking sack of a man unconditional love; that man will handle any offers very pragmatically.

My apologies for losing all in the translation (english is my fourth language). Some guys choose not to self improve. They live with the knowledge that negotiated sex is their lot.

They can see through the smoke and mirrors in Disneyland romance when she tries to pitch such bullshit at him. A fat solid guy.

I also don’t get the various in-fighting. OMG vs YSG? Seemed pretty silly to me. PUA vs MGTOW seems more about those groups trying to shore up their own sense of self at the other groups expense. I get the Red Pill so-con vs everyone else battle. They generally have comfy lives to keep on track… Read more »

@SFC Ton: Thanks for the song!! Right on the money.

@insanitybytes22: Listen to the song above and ask the sisterhood … “why is it so?” and do come back and enlighten us. I won’t hold my breath though.

Red Pill so-con – what is new addition to the RP lexicon?

Also ban IB, if she doesn’t change her avatar, as it is very misleading.

Thanks again Rollo for all your work and continued effort. You are providing an enduring source for those who seek truth comming into red pill awareness. Also, and at least as equally important, you are providing ongoing support for those who may otherwise backslide into blue pill delusion due to fear or nostalgia for the false hope of delusional blue pill expectations. It is great to read back over your various posts and the original book. Doing so reinforces awareness of reality and provides more clarity. Experience puts the pieces of the the puzzle in place. You have done a… Read more »

I also don’t get the various in-fighting. OMG vs YSG? Exactly Ton. You understand men fighting. You understand opposing tribes fighting. The Infighting (within a tribe) bugs me too. And I’ve pulled a Rodney King a time or two (“can’t we all just get along, tribal red pill wise?” That was a no go.) It has to do with an issue of Positive Masculinity and Red Pill Parenting that the Old Married guys advocated for and the latter scoffed at.

You’re apologizing for what? If Ton gives you shit, he’s probably drunk. Tell him to go fuck himself, lol.

The big takeaway from the “economic discussion”, which was really about power, not finances, is that it’s possible to fight the socialists…both the NRA and the homeschoolers have done so successfully and repeatedly…Congress won’t fuck with either group. Even if the socialists have trillions of dollars backing them up, academia, the media, the US Congress, and the Presidency.

@IB a need for control.. By the laws of nature, there is a definite need for a man to control his woman. Yes indeed. Without control from a male, a woman is a danger to herself and others. With the control of a male, she is apt to meet her true potential in life, and become a virtual Goddess. Shame.. Yes, we are all very ashamed that we have allowed women to become the shameful monstrosity that they have, due to our failure to control them properly, and our falling prey to feminine deceit. fear… Yes, we fear that if… Read more »

@SJF, “And a second thing happened after that. I had a mediocre GPA (3.1) after graduation in applying to Med School. I got accepted to my school of choice and no where else. But it was rolling admissions: get accepted, but wait on a waiting list for people to drop that choice. So I didn’t get in the year after graduating and had a very fruitful year taking classes, doing research that was fruitful and working in a clinical medical lab. Best year ever. But I was fucking pissed and I swore to never let anything like that ever happen… Read more »

@NBTM I have always considered, or at the very least suspected, EVERY male in media to be at least a bit feminine. You’re coming by that suspicion naturally. The old walks like a duck. A big part of the TV newscaster’s job, which pays well and they want to keep, is having someone put makeup on them before they sit and talk. Even print media types (LOL “print”) usually have to submit their material to female and/or feminist editors for approval. Plus, look at how many by-lines these days are women. The males are in the minority, and many of… Read more »

@NBTM I second Lost Patrol. Ever been in a news room studio? Perhaps interviewed on TV? It’s 65% female to start and they get nowhere in the business if they don’t “go girlie” and participate in the gossip mill. On the remaining male side it’s 30% gay or bi at a minimum, again back to the gossip mill. At best you will find a few editors who lurk in dark caves cutting clips who can trend masculine, they can live and die by tech skill alone. Perhaps the odd camera operator as well but they are often not seen and… Read more »

@Rollo, Congratulations on the #1 best seller and your 6 Years of excellent writing and superior commentary generation from the regular and occasional contributors which I really enjoy. Some Catch-up Comments (Still Behind in Comments): On the Statues Thing I have been to Wyman Park in Baltimore and walked around the impressive statue of Lee and Jackson—now removed by the Mayor. The city is now on its third black-woman mayor—the first was a crook, the second allowed destruction of property during the riots and the third, well, her major accomplishment seems to have been the removal of the statue. It… Read more »

“I told her I did it because I was “fucking” angry. I realize that this method of passing the shit test is not optimal,”

Wouldn’t say so. Being authentic is optimal. Righteous anger of the most high is optimal…

Sometimes a dust up by the Coq is required to keep the hen in line 🐓.

Ps – don’t go having vacations if you can’t pay your bills.

Pps – don’t have your wife out working… No benefit.

@Lost Patrol “Even print media types (LOL “print”) usually have to submit their material to female and/or feminist editors for approval.” What on Earth are you talking about? That would happen only if the editor is female or perhaps a women’s only product. I’ve worked in the business my entire career at media operations far and wide, never once have I seen or even heard of this. I will add that many male newsrooom employees are very liberal, feminized and highly beta. I spend a lot less time in our newsrooms since I swallowed the red pill, I simply no… Read more »

If-I-Fell On the statues thing, this is a matter of municipalities and protest ” organizations ” deciding to remove the statues. Don’t drink the kool aide man, most black folks don’t care, most millennials couldn’t pick Lee out of a lineup and have no idea who he is/was. Make zero mistake about it, Black People are not driving this movement. Why? Why would it suddenly matter? It’s now becoming a ” thing “. I advise all of the youngsters I know to stay out of it ( you didn’t care last year so don’t suddenly adopt any fashionable ” convictions… Read more »
