If you’re a regular reader here you probably know that I’ll be giving two talks in Orlando, Florida this week at the 21 Convention with my fellow Red Pill alumni Christian McQueen, Goldmund, Tanner Guzy and so many more guys from the manosphere. I do have plans to do some quick hit Periscope feeds to and at the event so check my Twitter for updates.
Furthermore, in the interests of fairness and objectivity, I will be doing a no-punches-pulled review of the convention is a similar fashion to the one I did for the Man in Demand Conference I did in Vegas two years ago. As I’ve related in a few prior posts and some live interviews, I was reluctant to accept a speaking spot for the 21 Convention because I felt that it had a reputation for toeing the Purple Pill line for much of its years of existence. I’m happy to say that, with a few exceptions’ the lineup this year is far more ‘red’ than this conference has ever been.
There’s a lot more to the reasons why Anthony Johnson, the convention founder and organizer, has made this shift. Primarily it’s been his experience with what any guy with a peripheral Red Pill Lens would’ve seen as a high-functioning BPD woman who was his unofficial wife. If you want more information on this experience you can see his seminar talk about exactly this here.
As a result of this, and consequently digging into my books and blog material, his true unplugging has given him a new Red Pill awareness. In the interests of full disclosure, I’ve had a fairly regular correspondence with Anthony about his unplugging and have counseled him through some of my own material. This really prompted a new perspective for him and this is manifesting itself in his drawing more Red Pill speakers to this convention than I think have ever been assembled in one place.
That said, I would be remiss if I didn’t pass this whole conference through the same level of scrutiny that I gave the Man in Demand conference. So, I’ll be doing some quick hit updates throughout this and next week’s blog posts and highlight the best and not-so-best parts of the convention as things transpire, and then summing things up at the end of it all. Be sure to follow me on Twitter for updates, high-lights and some Periscope videos too. The hashtag for the convention is #21Con.
In the meantime,…
I took some time away from my talk preparations to do an interview with Craig James from Masculine By Design to discuss the main aspects of my third book Positive Masculinity as well as some general Red Pill discussion. Craig is starting to make a name for himself as a manosphere podcaster now, filling the unfortunate vacuum left by the departure of Mark Baxter from his own show. Craig primarily focuses on married Red Pill issues and parenting. I probably don’t align perfectly with his perspective on a few things, but on whole he’s got a solid Red Pill blog and podcast that I think will only gain more traction in the manosphere and particularly among more mature men and the “awakened-while-married” set of Red Pill readers.
Do check it out. We went for a bit over two hours and I’m sure you’ll enjoy the discourse. Much of what we discuss will be key aspects of my second 21 Convention talk on Positive Masculinity.
But wait, there’s more,…
And finally, I also did about a two and a half hour interview with the Hanging Chads podcast. This was a great interview as well and much more casual and fun than most of the interviews I’ve done. Be warned, they have a political bent to their material, but the material we covered was Red Pill from an intersexual dynamics perspective (as you might expect from me). The audio wont drop until Thursday, but check back here or there when it does. I’ll update this post when it goes live.
So, there you have it. If I’m meeting you for the first or second time at the convention, please, come up and introduce yourself. There’s a lot going on at this event outside the talks themselves so there’ll be plenty of time and opportunity to pick my brain while we’re there. And yes, I’ll see about getting some candid video of the dinners and social meet ups too. Watch this space.
See you in Orlando!

Rollo I wish I could make it. It’s only a 5-6 hour drive. I would like to meet you. I will meet you one day and shake your hand. But about a month ago I placed in a turny at the buea rivage in Biloxi and I made 1500. And was like that’s my money for the 21 convention. But then I blew it all playing 4 ring events with wsop. Best I got was down to 2 tables in a turbo that only payed back 9 seats. Any way I will meet you in a few years when I… Read more »
@Keith, we’ll make it happen at some point. Might be Vegas next year.
@Rugby, are you coming to Orlando?
Rollo i am getting ready now
@Rugby, check out this dude’s videos from oldest to newest. With the time some guys spend watching one NFL game, they could learn the basics of building a homestead from the ground up. https://www.youtube.com/user/farmhandscompanion/videos
I consider these videos red pill knowledge.
… And guys can do both. Singular tunnel vision is a bad thing for the majority of men. Any activity that stunts learning and growth should be strenuously avoided. But I dig football, lol ( surprise ). I played all through school and in the city leagues. I have former team and classmates that went on to be very successful NFL players. Lots of folk use football as a social tool, and that’s fine depending on how invested one becomes in it. It can be no different than Sarging every weekend. With little actual return on time invested. Somethings are… Read more »
@Blax, water my mums! Haha!
I think a dude that’s handling his shit like you are and is red pill deserves the downtime – like watching football. My problem is with these out of shape, blue pill betas that live and breath it and don’t have any manly skill sets. Hi-fiving each other after the touchdowns with bigs guts sticking out of their jerseys with other dude’s names on them. Drinking beer and developing man tits. Talking about the politics and decisions of their teams management all damn day at work. lol.
Lol. I fully agree.
Watering mums is not actually always downtime. Football watching is not always downtime. It depends on mindset. Back in the seventies, competetive sports participation by me was all natural and felt comfortable. Back in the 2000’s being a father hosting competetive sports children was all forced and Beta. Best experience ever for my son and daughter, worst ever for me.

Bigger picture. Be aware and stay woke. Lol. When it’s your turn, you’ll be better prepared, and your turn is coming if issues go unresolved and largely ignored. If not you personally, your sons and grandsons.
Too bad we can’t stick around for a couple of centuries and sort things out for our own descendants.
Ton has an interesting post up on his blog.
He usually does.
We may not see eye to eye 100% on every single aspect of life ( more like a solid 80, lol ), but damn do I respect the hell out of that man. that’s a guy that stays wide awake.
Noise matters sometimes. Like a train whistle at a railroad crossing.
well said, newly keep going, though…. what do you think is the effect on the men’s children? especially their sons? they see what/who dad exalts and honors…. they see him wearing another man’s name on their body, reveling in another man’s accomplishments as if they were their own; they see dad immersed in the drama of a business from which he does not profit; they see dad celebrating victories as if they contributed anything more than their own money to another man’s salary if dear ole dad finds purpose and meaning in such frivolities, it must be a grand thing,… Read more »
Blaximus “Noise matters sometimes. Like a train whistle at a railroad crossing. A train whistle is not noise. It’s a directed signal. Your point is well taken, though, that noise matters sometimes. As in: Noise is a shit test. You keep your Frame when being shit tested. Always. Just ask SFC Ton about the noise of his Harleys. To some, that’s noise. To him it’s a signal. SFC Ton: There is nothing in this world like a Harley. My metric bikes are fine machines but they lack the vibration, sound and feel of a Harley. Harleys are heart and soul,… Read more »
I agree. The challenge for all thinking men though, is to be able to pay attention and figure out what the directed signal is within what we hear as noise.
in case this is still of interest
go ahead an jump in, but this is no longer like two dudes in a bar arm wrestling for a beer; you’d be better served putting on full gladiator gear and practicing your to-the-death mindset
I like the dude’s optimism but make no mistake, he spent much time woodshedding for his success; and with his dropout’s lack of formal education, you know he’s got more going on than just luck
and while I’m trying to out-rugby rugby….
“…their business model has become fundamentally disconnected from the very people and entities it was designed to serve…”
seems to sum it up well enough
American Sniper widow Taya Kyle speaks about how the NFL united different races and creeds:
and about how the protests have fueled division, which, of course, is by design.
NFL ratings are down 11% this year from last year.
That’s pretty humorous when I look back on all the noise I heard as I entered the Manosphere. It was fucking deafening.
Lately it’s been all signals and the noise is quiet. And it all kinda gelled when I read and understood the process of reality transurfing. The mind not cock-blocking the heart.
Sam how are you?
@Rollo Just finished listening to the Positive Masculinity podcast posted here. You’ve done a few of these but by far this was the most clear, concise and insightful.
The interviewer understood the subject matter and let you speak without interrupting.
I loved the whole segment on “Authenticity” and the demonstrate don’t explicate examples.
It was the lift I needed.
Hey Rollo, link to your ‘Hanging Chads’ podcast: https://media.zencast.fm/the-hanging-chads/episodes/43
LOL, poll; who has the most alpha stance.
I’d have to go in order from Rich, Rollo then Tanner.
Rich is challenging. Rollo is quietly in control.
Tanner is all, “I’m fragile. Please don’t hurt me.”
“The interviewer understood the subject matter and let you speak without interrupting.”
No shit. Those guys were good interviewers.
Plowed through and didn’t have preconceptions.
Man, maybe married red pill gets traction. Wait, What it has.
Maybe Game transcends PUA, Puerarchists and OMG’s. Wait what It Can.
Since this is the sorta kinda current thread, I’ll suggest here that anyone who decides to get elective plastic surgery done should be mighty particular about who you let near a woman’s butt for buttlifting, and near your own personal zone. No matter how many Popsicle sticks a man might have around the house, either.
The new Youtube video interview you posted: Modern Times: Camille Paglia & Jordan B Peterson is great.
I listened to the first hour and it is very enlightening about how social intergender issues work at the macro level. And both start out explaining their bias about how fucked up they think posmodernists, SJW, Academics and Identity Politics are.
Highly recommend listening to it.
Would have enjoyed speaking with you in person over the weekend.
The great wonder of masculine exposure and existence… This past weekend has been such an intense punch in the groin… Every speaker had something that was simply delivered. This is something about my own story I want to share with the wisdom insight from the people I had the opportunity to meet with. Something I found myself dealing with is how important men are to each other in person. It’s a baptism of madness and tranquility. Pussy’s get eating… The conversation gets started and the brotherhood explodes with story’s of lost times of hard work and pushing past your expectations… Read more »

What do you think about this post: http://www.girlschase.com/content/was-1950s-housewife-historical-aberration
It makes sense, although makes things look like they just happened naturally, without any social engineering, like feminism, to blame.
Very true only way to see the eyes of the beholder of being.
You are here: (Reader) The MANifesto If you’ve read my eBook, you know that there’s a difference between being a good man and being good at being a man. One can be a good man without being good at being a man, and vice versa. However, my goal is to be both. These are the values that define a good man and one that is good at being a man. That’s not to say that all of these values are uniquely male. In fact, many of them are also values that exemplify a good woman. Thus, you might have many… Read more »

Woman’s feelings hurt. NFL mobilizes prostrate apology effort…
It is just sickening how stupid gender relations are getting to be in the west. A cute soft jab at a woman journalist and it is Hellfire for Cameron. Girls cant play with boys. What happens in such a society is nothing but dryness, bitterness, sadness and may be even barrenness eventually.

Amy Cuddy’s silly “power pose” research inspired Mike Cernovich, among others.
Cuddy’s female coauthor repudiated the idea after results could not be replicated. But Cuddy promoted it with TED talks. Instead of theory or statistics, she narcissistically focused on her personal struggles with confidence. Now in response to criticism, commenters are crying sexism. How dare you criticize a frail little girl; you might shake her confidence! It is the classic sexist double standard: she wants to fight with the boys, but they aren’t allowed to hit a girl.
