Reminders of Myself

I’m writing this post on the day before I head off to this year’s 21 Convention and I thought I’d just do something a bit freeform to get a few ideas on the page and let you all know where my head is at these days. I generally don’t make a habit of using The Rational Male as a sounding board for my personal thoughts. Most of what you read here is what I can best describe as crafted essays. Last week’s post was a good example of that. I took about 2 weeks to to write that essay, but the the germ of the idea for building an essay on body language and implied meanings was something I’d had percolating for almost 6 months. When you write about what I do for as long as I have I’ve learned it pays to be thorough, and I enjoy the building process.

Now that I’ve said all that, I’m going to break this rule today and do a bit of stream-of-consciousness writing here now.

One thing I’ve learned since I decided to write intentionally is that I’m never off-duty. I’ve always been an artist and I’ve always kept sketchbooks with me to scribble down ideas for larger work, but it wasn’t until I started really writing that I began to keep notebooks for my posts and then my books; and now my talks. I presently have 4 small notebooks that I put ideas in. I just finished filling one up and now I need another one. I was never that Emo writer kid who was so artsy and self-absorbed he had to write a diary because he thought people must find him fascinating. In fact, I’ve always thought of art as something temporal.

Now this is changed for me. I find it an absolute necessity to keep notebooks with me to capture ideas in. I think my brain has changed somewhat since I began being a ‘serious’ author. My mind now works in a way where I get ideas that don’t stay for long, but the internal conversations I have to flesh out those ideas can get pretty involved. I’ve freaked my wife out on more than one occasion when I got up to take a piss in the middle of the night, had an idea and then had to go write it down knowing that it would fade from memory by the morning. I think I’m kind of torn between being a creative thinker and a deductive thinker as a result of applying myself to writing .

I guess that makes me a writer, but I still don’t know what I am in that respect. I do know I have an obsessive compulsion to write, but not so much to write as an author of books but a capturer of ideas. Occasionally I read about authors’ writing processes and rituals and it sounds really artsy. Honestly, I think a result of the self-publishing revolution is that it created a lot of writers who just wanted to be writers. Like they just revel in the identity and love to say ‘I’m special, I’m a writer‘. The same thing happened in desktop publishing when computers started replacing all the analog ways of graphic design. Everyone you knew was a ‘graphic designer’ because anyone could do it then.

I think it was Stephen King who said writing for him was like excrement. Not in the way that his writing was shit, but rather it was something that just came out of him, something he excreted like hair or fingernails. I think I understand that now. I never set out to be a writer, I’m an ideas man. Sometimes those ideas are great and help change men’s lives. Then sometimes I think maybe I’m a messenger for something that just needs to be conveyed in this day and this time. 

The Rational Male, my first book, just turned 5 years old on October 1st. Granted, it still needs to be cleaned up and I’m in the process of a reedit with the help of two editors now. Nothing will change as far as content is concerned, but lets be honest, the font size needs to be kicked up a couple points and there are a fair amount of grammatical errors that need to be corrected. So, I’m reading back through the whole book these days and in doing so I almost can’t believe that the voice is my own. Although the book was published in 2013 all the material is from essays I wrote as far back as 2002, and a lot of that was from conversations and debates I’d had on SoSuave from back in the day. Re-reading it is like having a conversation with myself from when I was 34 years old.

The book is important in so many ways to so many people now. That’s something I have to keep in mind today. The Rational Male is a living text. It’s not a book you you read once and put on a shelf. Readers keep returning to it when the need to be reminded of a relevant truth that they’re experiencing in life.

A year ago, when I was at the 21 Convention the thing that struck me the most was signing men’s copy’s and seeing how well-worn they were. Every one had liner notes and highlighted in at least 2 different highlighter colors. It was then I realized this book was something more than a self-published book turned out from the print-on-demand mill.

I’m sure I’ll see the same this year and it makes me happy to have been the instrument to bring these truths to men. I still get chills when men tell me it saved their lives or it fundamentally changed them for the better. I re-read my work and think ‘who is this guy?’ I wonder how my grandchildren, maybe great-grandchildren, will see what I was about. And this is what concerns me most when I consider the ease with which I could be erased from the online world.

I would be lying to say that recent social events haven’t flustered me. The fact that Roosh’s books could be so casually deleted from all of his distribution sources is unsettling. He wrote about this, prophetically, about five years ago in The Most Insidious Method of Control Never Devised. Roosh has had his bread taken from him. And yes, I understand, his right to ‘free speech’ hasn’t been impinged, he still has the right to say what he thinks, but this is a reminder that for all the high-minded talk about being ‘anti-fragile’ we’re all more fragile than we think.

I don’t know what Roosh’s revenue situation looks like, I know he’s put Return of Kings on indefinite hiatus, but I wonder what men who’ve made the manosphere their sole source of income will do when their ability to generate revenue from it dries up. This is the main reason I advise men against becoming revenue-dependent on the manosphere. It’s too easy to have their convictions compromised for the sake of profit, but it’s also one keystroke away from being deleted by platforms they depend on for that revenue.

My main fear is that the vital work I’ve done with The Rational Male might be casually undone through the ignorant vindictiveness of a feminist critic somehow made an authority over what men should and should not read in digital publishing. My fear is that the men’s lives who might be saved by my book would be prevented access to it. I made a joke on Twitter a few years ago; I said, ‘there will come a day when The Rational Male will have to be read in secret, by candle light among secret societies of men like Christians in Mao’s China had to do. I don’t laugh at that prophecy anymore.

I’ve always encouraged men to buy the physical, print copy of the book. Mainly this is because I’ve always hoped men would in fact discuss it among themselves. It was meant to be a conversation (debate) starter because I’ve always believed in the bottom up approach to making people think in new ways. I want men to physically pass the book on to the next guy they think will need it. I make the least amount on royalties from the print book, but it’s what I think is most important – but also because it is a permanency that digital books cannot insure.

The Red Pill community has grown exponentially since I began writing almost 20 years ago. While I don’t believe we’ve hit critical mass just yet I do think we’re becoming too big to ignore now. The Red Pill forum on Reddit was ‘quarantined’ last week, and unsurprisingly the latent message sent in that act was one that aligned with a pseudo-concern over what an appropriate expression of masculinity is. Ironically, the redirect from the quarantine was linked to the ‘masculinity studies’ department of Stony Brook University – every bit the Vichy male plantation for men to align with the definition of masculinity approved for them by the Feminine Imperative – and led by, the now condemned for sexual assault allegations, Michael Kimmel. 

What the Red Pill reveals is dangerous and threatening to a gynocentric world order. As the #MeToo movement evolves into the opportunistic weapon of social and political control, our online presence and our message stand out in sharp challenge to its false foundations. I can remember when I wrote Fem-Centrism and The Feminine Reality and the hostility those posts generated among critics. It’s always been a man’s world they said; how dare I suggest women were the true power behind the throne. That was 7 years ago. I had a new WordPress blog and although I was semi-well known on SoSuave I was just another blogger who wrote about this new thing called the ‘Red Pill’.

The Gestalt Feminine vs. The Gestalt Masculine

In 2018 the stakes are much higher, the game has changed and the tolerance for challenges to an ideology intrinsic to our feminine-primary social order is at its breaking point. There is now a presumption of authority to go along with the presumptions of entitlement for women and default guilt for men. The very platforms that made our coming together possible are ruled by the world views we’ve always warned against.

I once wrote a post called Appeals to Reason and in it I made a rational case as to why it is never in a good idea for a man to try to reason his way into intimacy or sex with women. Most Beta men subscribe to a very literalist mindset. Our Rational Interpretive process evolved to make men natural, deductive, problem solvers. As such, we evolved different strategies and different communication methods apart from those of women. We believe in the statistics, the empirical data, the proven methods, the ‘science’ behind the processes to make informed decisions. We prioritize information when we communicate.

To the contrary, women prioritize the context of communication – they feel the communication before they apply a rational interpretation to what’s been communicated. Even when confronted with a succinctly reason position founded on empirical facts, their first priority is to personalize how that data makes them feel. Their Emotional Interpretive Process is their evolved default.

What I see happening today on a larger meta-social scale is a collective gestalt of the masculine trying to assert their deductive reasoning to assess the disposition of the meta-female gestalt which is firmly founded in how issues of monumental social importance make the whole of the feminine feel.

In Appeals to Reason I used a guy’s petition of women as an example of this. The kid had created a list of questions for women to fill out as to why they didn’t want to go out with him on a date and to assess what it is that women want. This is classic male deductive reasoning. For millennia men have tried to apply reason to dealing with women only to find themselves confounded by what women say and what they do. The same is now true in a social scope and about decisions that have global importance today.

However, in today’s scenario it is women who presume an authority that is just on the cusp of totalitarianism. It’s like we’re collectively, as Beta, Blue Pill conditioned men, attempting to logically deduce what it is women want in order to satisfy their desire for a total authority. And when that woman doesn’t get what she wants, when men try to reason her into bed, she reacts like a violent child having a tantrum. She says what she feels, not what she needs.

And the gestalt of men turn on one another and blame the other for setting her off. “If only you assholes would give her what she wants we wouldn’t be in this mess” they say. Then to make matters worse we pander to her tantrums, we believe her insanity, we take her feelings as facts and the other half of the gestalt masculinity wonders why the other can’t see the real story while the other is swept up in female hysterics.

Then the gestalt female is pandered to so thoroughly that we come to the point that we follow their Emotional Interpretive process as the only measure of legitimate discussion. This is where we are today, only, to compound things, we’ve collectively approved for the gestalt feminine a universally effective means of destroying the parts of the gestalt masculine who would dare to challenge their feelings, their emotional priorities. We’ve given the feminine the power to wish us away to the cornfield if we upset the child.

And so here we are, at the figurative mercy of the gestalt feminine (and their Vichy male “allies”) keeping our collective heads down for fear that they’ll deny us our bread if we upset the insane, collective female Id.

There will be more to this essay in my address at the 21 Convention this Friday. I will also be doing various videos from Orlando on my Periscope, Twitter and possibly my new YouTube channel. I hope to see you there.

I also have physical copies of your three books.

The fact that Rooshes books were banned is very concerning. Getting Manosphere books to Africa for me has been difficult. I have yet to get the Rational Male in hard copy(I have the other two). I now see that while I can, I should get as much as I can in hard copy before I am longer able to see “The way of men” or how to pick up chicks during the day.

I’m one of those ‘artsy’ writers who have writing rituals; same coffee shop, special notepads, special ‘writing pen’. The reason I seem to need this is that, deep down, I’m afraid to say what I want to say. There are real consequences for ‘being sexist’, especially in England where I’m from although I currently live in the Netherlands. Was married to a Dutch woman and after our divorce I had to stay if I wanted to be any kind of father. Still, the way things are in the UK, I’m better off in Amsterdam.

@Rollo: several recent events convince me it is getting worse in terms of censorship.

Even if you don’t rely on the manosphere to get your income, if you mention certain topics and the FI will lobby to do that on your non-manosphere income streams.

I’m currently very conscious about keeping my opinions to myself on these kind of topics.

I’m happy (but surprised) you haven’t been targeted at all. I think if the FI does come for you, they won’t just go for the Rational Male but also try to mess up with your other work.

Women tend to process information first through an emotional filter. They see how that information feels, and then draw conclusions from that feeling. By contrast, men tend to process information through a rational filter, and consider any logical contradictions or inconsistencies, and then draw conclusions based on reason. Knowing this, how do you argue with a feminist SJW? Answer: Abandon logical arguments. Logic can work to persuade men, but for the most part they won’t persuade women. We have to come up with emotional arguments first and foremost. An example: Hilary Clinton had the gall to say that women are… Read more »

@”arguing” with SJWs, feminists etc.:

No matter whether arguing emotionally or rationally – they will just doxx you/damage you socially.
Time for talking is over, has been for a long time.

-buy as locally and conservatively as possible
-vote as authoritarian, right wing as possible
-never assist anyone in the camp of the enemy, no matter how dire their plight
-raise SMV etc.pp. tbe usual stuff
-wait & work for change individually where you can
-discriminate wherever possible, they even tell us all the time what they fear the most, just do it
-shamelessly lie/reframe about all of the above

Problems will get solved. Hopefully sooner rather than later. 🙄

For the most part, western males acquiesced about 25-30 years ago. Acquiescence to the FI is one not many.

Displays of ‘ power ‘ convince that one has little choice. Either go alongside perish. The third option never occurs because men aren’t practiced and asserting and standing up for themselves. Society doesn’t cotton to boat rockers.

The only short term solution is to never enter into legal contact with a female, while leading them to believe you will commit eventually so you get them to perform for you in the “acquisition phase” .
Meanwhile take care of birth control via testosterone injections with the added benefit of “more alpha” and just roll with it until the cost benefit analysis becomes negative or Unsatisfying.

and women were at it for a good 50 years prior to that.

Rollo no longer appears in the twitter search results under Rollo Tomassi

same with Rational Male

you have to search @RationalMale, but even then rollo doesn’t come up in the search bar

Rollo is on their radar

Somehow me at 50 gets along well with certain girls in their 20s.

This is the natural order. Complementary – strength and wisdom matched with youth and vitality. They need a paternal hand. They love it.

From Dr. Hall: “Complex equivalence is

– If something is expressed or stated emotionally, then it is
true, valid, and credible.

– If an accuser is emotional (sincerely and intensely), then the
accusation must be true.

– I have to believe someone (validity, credibility), if that
person goes into an emotional state.”

Since some time I see future in black colors.
Men are single wolves, how can they win the war with herd?
Especially when many men support this herd, too.

For myself since long ago I know that what is in net is one kbd click from disappearing, that’s why I have all or almost all Rollo’s articles on MY computer.

Good luck with convention, Rollo.

Too pessimistic.

Trump’s election and Kavanaugh’s confirmation are proof that the Rational Interpretive trumps the Emotional Interpretive when strong men are present.

Women _want_ men to win. That’s the whole point of a shit test. But we have to show up individually and corporately.

The book-banning threat is real. But there are too many avenues for information to flow to completely silence the Red Pill.

Roosh originally started off his brand like red pill version of Maxim for PUAs. But veered wildly off course and got into the red pill of politics when some feminist threw a drink in his face in Canada. After that point ROK became like the stormfront version of Maxim. It wasn’t a little nazi, he was really open about it. Feminism was female version of judeo-marxism and nazism was the solution. The comment threads on ROK articles are full of it. Anybody who questioned it got banned from making comments. All the cool people left or were banned. Its not… Read more »

I wasn’t gonna say it, glad you did. That’s one reason I don’t care about roosh’s fate. Ever. Some or the shit he’s said? But the thing is, it was totally unnecessary. Speaking out and self expression in public spheres doesn’t have to devolve into that stuff. 1at amendment means the government won’t censor you, but Amazon and.other platforms don’t n have to deal with that, especially after a few dozen.complaints.

This brings to mind a few things: a couple years back I joined in the warnings that sites like this one could be hacked or squashed flat. Our Sensei could get outed as a most un-intersectionally insensitive cis-heteronormative churl, be banished to the outer darkness and have to live in a warehouse locker stacked with cases of Fireball bottles with Aziz Ansari and Jian Ghomeshi as roommates. The pour girls at the brand shows would throw swizzle sticks at him, and the race car boys would be forced to adorn their Camaros with Wonder Woman decals and plus-size fashion ads.… Read more »

Be a man, without apology. – Know thyself. – Never try explain ‘facts’ to women, especially before fucking. Fuck em good, then you can talk. And even then, what’s the first rule of fight club… If you’re a man that gets it there’s no need to be verbose. – Maybe we need to get our… Read more »

@Sentient “They need a paternal hand. They love it.” Which is where the constant shit testing comes from. All the pieces of the Red Pill started making sense a few years ago. Then it was practice—gaming girls, trying things, failing and ploughing ahead. Some of the guys who come here confused or frustrating–I get that. I still feel frustrated when something doesn’t work out. But less and less the “feeling” of being “beta” is declining. I used to seek advice on things like “Is this text beta?” Now it’s all about the results. The HB9 27 year old wanted me… Read more »

@kobayashii (Wrath of Khan reference?) Regarding your question about feminisation and the Netherlands, it’s weird. If you read Dutch newspapers and watch Dutch TV, they generally have the same ‘Future is Female’ shit as the UK. Women complain of inequality and discrimination, and ‘new’ men write self-loathing articles in support of the FI and the need for ‘us to do better’. But day-to-day life here is different. The atmosphere in coffee houses, with men and women sat at big communal tables working at laptops or chatting to one another, is generally relaxed and pleasant.

More censorship is coming. It’s unclear what the specific *contours* of that will be, but the overall *context* is clear enough, and it’s the political context. TPTB in the tech world, who govern and control all of this space, were very displeased at how the space was used in the 2016 elections — not so much the Russian stuff (which appears to have had a very limited impact), but the way Trump used Twitter and Facebook specifically. Not because they are all die-hard progressive misandrists — in fact most of them are some sort of left libertarian rather than democratic… Read more »

@ex-cartoonist I’m reluctant to say it on this comments’ thread, but most women I know or even encounter in the Netherlands are really nice people. It’s only when you get involved sexually or romantically with a woman that some switch seems to get thrown… I understand your reluctance, because the men’s sphere tends to concentrate on the problems and solving those problems so it seems like the only women we run into are a problem; but what you see is not uncommon elsewhere to include the USA.

@ Blaximus “The difference between self control and self suppression is often misunderstood.” True. A person (if alive) is always moving in one direction or another, taking action or not. Not acting is itself an action in the game. The game never ends, it is always “on”, it is relentless, there is no “rest” FROM the game as rest itself is only another move or strategy. Self control is control of self, guidance of self, direction of self and motivation of self. We are each constantly under control of something, if not self, then something else or someone else.

I take Novaseeker’s point but would modify it a tad: this isn’t just the ISP gurus thryong to self-censor (and censor others) to say “ahead of the governments.” Though yes in places like Australia there is a growing concept of “group libel” which allows an aggrieved person of said oppressed group to suppress any criticism that might be deemed offensive to the group as a whole. While the leftie Lucy crowd might be pushing it now as part of their Thanks For Shaming campaigns, the same mischief can be made by any group with the social media power to do… Read more »

“Well, suppression of actions driven by emotions that would harm your mission is a good thing. Suppression of one’s mission is not.” Emotions are best not suppressed, better to welcome them, accept and indulge them immediately, fully experience them. No one else has a right to your emotions. No one else is entitled to define what they mean or how you are “supposed” to be defined by them. Let them come and go freely. They are an excellent guide, sign posts, warnings about what is within and what is external. Do not fight them or be anxious (another emotion) about… Read more »
