Respect Reconsidered • Part II

Respect comes very cheap today. In the last essay i made the case that there are gendered forms of Respect, each with their gendered understanding of what a universal idea of respect should entail. The same misunderstanding applies to our gendered concepts of Love; each sex presumes the other accepts and acknowledges their own ideals about love – men approaching love from outwardly expressed idealism, while women’s is rooted in inwardly (though increasingly outwardly) expressed opportunism.

For the most part this division of approaches to Love is something both sexes hold personally, and unless that person is an artist or a poet the expression of that approach to love is something we reserve for those we come to love. Love, like religion, is usually something we have a personal belief about, but it’s generally something we don’t broadcast to those we don’t love.

Respect is different. Our ideas of what defines respect is something we will broadcast because that ideal for Respect is something that’s socially expedient in getting the things we want. The first time I was told, “You don’t respect women!” was when I was 19. Even then, in my Blue Pill delusions, I saw a contradiction. The women (and sometimes men) who were telling me I didn’t Respect women were almost always after something. No one tells that you ought to be more respectful because they want you to be a better person, nor are you corrected because the ideal of respect was even a primary concern. No, people tell you to show respect when they want something or they have an interested invested in you deferring respect to the person or thing they believe you ought to be paying respect to.

Pay Tribute or Pay Respect?

In fact, the idea that one ought to “pay” respect to something or someone else really sets the context for the utility that Respect represents to them. You “owe” respect to an ephemeral ideal in the same way you “pay your dues”, like a personal debt that someone insists you owe because you want to be reverent of the concept of Respect. And this basis for Respect is why I say Respect has been cheapened today.

Even when I was 19 and women would attempt to shame me into deference to women with Respect, I saw the contradiction between women and men’s concepts of Respect. My male idea of Respect was one of the few things my father had imparted to me. So, naturally, I questioned the idea, “What do women actually do that’s worthy of my respect?” Respect was earned. Lord knows I hadn’t done much to deserve anyone’s respect at 19, but I did know that deeds and acts were something a man had to do to gain respect – and maybe somewhere along the way acquire integrity (another container word). My smart ass response was “I don’t know any women who deserve my respect.” And that was true, but every Blue Pill conditioned guy I knew then would tell me, “You’ll never get girls to like you with that attitude mister.”

So, basically, if I wanted a girl to be intimate with me I had to feign respect for her because she’s a girl? The Blue Pill teaches men, yes, and the better you are at pretending it the more a woman will appreciate you. This is where the debasement of Respect (as an ideal) in our feminine-primary social order begins. Unmerited respect for women only reinforces the Women are, Men must become principle. Men must become, men must qualify, men must perform. As such, male respect is something that is almost always in flux. Women’s respect just is, and thereby female respect is something more static.

Respect for the Sake of Respect

In a gynocentric society the predominant definition of respect, the one that is transferred to virtually all aspects of that social order, is the female concept. Automatic, deferential, but ultimately unmerited respect simply for being – female respect – is considered a useful tool, but cheapens the ideal of respect and what makes a person respectable.

When I outlined the difference between male and female concepts of Love, one of the first things men do is get indignant. They don’t like the idea that women don’t share their own ‘love for the sake of love’ idealism. My point was that women “fundamentally lack the capacity to love a man in the way he thinks should be possible for her.” This is difficult for a Blue Pill conditioned guy to wrap his head around. Much of who they are was built on the premised goal that women will “love him as much as he loves her”, so to suggest that this isn’t possible for him means that “women fundamentally lack a capacity to love men, period.” They conclude that if women cannot share his idealistic approach to Love then they cannot legitimately love him. His concept should be the only acceptable concept and therefor rejecting his concept is rejecting its legitimacy.

This same singleminded interpretation applies largely to women and their form of respect. If men would hold a woman to a merited, male, standard of respect, rather than a default deference to respecting her for no measurable reason, then those men don’t believe in Respect at all. It’s her way or it isn’t real.

Most men are afraid to appear disrespectful to women. This fear is compounded by the mass effect of a globalized sexual marketplace

When I was 19 I was concerned that I’d done something wrong. Why would women presume I didn’t respect them? I was perceived as a Jerk and I just knew that that wasn’t what women really wanted. I didn’t know it then, but this was a shaming tactic being used to keep me in line as a prospectively useful Beta. In a way I suppose it was a meta-shit test. An Alpha man wouldn’t care if women thought he was respectful. A sure sign a guy is Beta would be reflected in how he responds to being accused of disrespect of women (really ‘womankind‘).

In truth, a default respect for women is really worthless from a male perspective. I’m sure that just my typing this out will be enough to trigger most women, but if you are triggered, it’s more important to consider why you are. A default respect for females may seem like a socially correct perspective for an “upstanding leader of men” Blue Pill Alpha archetype, but it is men who adopt the attitude that women must qualify themselves to him who engender genuine respect among women.

Flipping the Respect Script

This is an important lesson in Game as well. One of the first things many of the old school PUAs would teach an AFC (Average Frustrated Chump) is to flip the script with respect to who is qualifying whom. The natural presumption for most Blue Pill men is that they must always qualify to a woman. Usually this entails proving his quality in various ways (buy her a drink, pay for dinner, carry the conversation, etc.), but the operative assumption is that she is the one whose Frame he is entering into. The PUA fundamental then was to flip this ‘natural‘ script; to get her to pursue him. In doing so, her subconscious confirms his high value – why else would she pursue? If a guy could cleverly tease this pursuit out of her it then creates a perpetuating feedback loop about him [until he fucks it up somehow by reverting to qualifying to her].

Flipping the qualification script with a woman presents one very difficult hurdle for the AFC: he must risk offending the social convention that tells him he must never disrespect a woman. This is where the larger, social, respect dynamic becomes apparent.

From a Beta male, Respect is cheap. Most Betas’ attention comes for free and is steeped in the idea that he must never upset the respect dynamic. But just like love, attention and interest, women don’t value Respect that is easily had. Too much circulation makes the price go down, and scarcity makes the price go up. We constantly tell men to make, and consider, themselves ‘the Prize‘, but to do this a man must risk offending a default female respect to shift the Frame to a default male respect. This is counterintuitive part of unplugging and learning Game.

That deference is what is expected. To respect women is common. What is uncommon is a lack of female respect. Therefor a default respectful deference is basic and plain to a woman. But it is the man whose respect a woman must earn who make the most significant impact and inspire the greatest emotional investment on her part. As I’ve stated in many essays, never deny a woman the satisfaction of believing she’s figured you out with her feminine intuition. Women expect a worthy Alpha to command respect amongst his peers, but also to expect her to earn his respect. And in her meriting it, she then holds a new respect for him.

Respect, as social dynamic, is an attempt to govern the terms of communication. Respect also has its utilities. It’s a rational for an easy dismissal of uncomfortable facts. For instance, Mansplaining presumes a lack of respect for women by a man who is trying to define what ought to constitute respect. It is a means of controlling a narrative. A “lack of respect” is an easy way to poison the well in any debate and also serves as the basis of a lot of straw man arguments.

Higher Love

Respect is defined by the party who decides what it is, and who should have it. In this way Respect is intimately linked with Frame, and since women’s form of respect is the socially predominant one today, the starting point of most intersexual exchanges begins with the presumption that a woman should control the Frame by means of a default, unearned respect. And to some hopelessly Blue Pill men who invariably mix that conditioning with religion, this respect then becomes a form of Reverence for the female.

In Part I of this series I dropped this line:

God is Love
[…] I’ve been exploring the way men and women idealize the concept of divine love from a god or some metaphysical source. Each sex has a gendered concept of love that they believe the other sex shares with them, but in fact doesn’t naturally come to without some education or experience.

To which a commenter left me this in the comments thread:

“God is love”. Rollo, this is just one more on the heap of things I am struggling with regards to my “christian faith”. I am very much looking forward to reading Alpha God and eventually your 4th book.


Unconditional love is the main message of the new testament. Could it be that Christianity is really that feminized not just by “the village” and feminized church today but actually? Could the New testament be a watering down of the old Jahve Religion? 

Zoltan

While I’m not planning on exploring Red Pill concepts of “unconditional love” on this blog, I will be picking apart the implications of how men and women’s differing concepts of love come to define, or set the understanding of an ideal of a ‘higher love’ (don’t sing the song, don’t sing the song,…).

So what does this have to do with Respect?

Everything if you consider the gender whose definition of what Respect should be is the socially predominant on at any point in history. Performance defines men’s existences. Performance determines respectability for men and earning one’s way into Heaven might be the highest form of respect, right?

More next week.

  1. The reward of an eternity in Paradise is so great that it would be impossible to earn by one’s deeds on earth, even if you lived for a thousand years. I’m eagerly anticipating the next book Rollo.

  2. Respect for women is also tried to self-respect. Self-respect is tied to tolerance or how much of a specific behaviour you can accept or put up with.

    I stopped following up with a few of my plates recently meaning If I asked one to do something and they didn’t immediately jump on the idea I left it.

    It made things easier for me to sort. If I don’t hear back I make other plans. To follow up with “so are you free or not?” Lowers my value and therefore my self- respect.

    Another KPI in the respect department is your own neediness. Lately I’ve realised I so don’t give a shit about many things that mattered to me. As I stop caring less suddenly I enjoy them more when I do engage in the activity or with the person.

    So the age old game question of “how do I stop giving a shit?” Is tied to the idea of self respect.

  3. I’ve been trying to think of a woman that I actually respect and the only one I can come up with is a chick that I used to work with river rafting over 20 years ago. She was a petite and pretty girl who had more technical ability and courage than most of the other guides that I worked with. Which means that I only respected her because of masculine traits, not feminine ones.

  4. There is no such thing as unconditional love. It’s an illusion of Beta males and a tool for older woman to control men. Not even your mommy dearest loves you unconditionally.

  5. “Unconditional love is the main message of the new testament.” The guy must be reading something other than the new testament. God doesn’t love unconditionally. He makes an offer, & those who reject the offer will be thrown into outer darkness where there is ‘weeping & gnashing.’

  6. ” religion ” is a suckers game. It works well in those who desire a feeling of submission and being controlled. Religion is a man made construct that doesn’t really have anything to do with God or spirituality. If you doubt this, spend a year observing how the most God -filled people interact with others or with their environment.

    Anti abortion/pro death penalty?

    The poor?

    Money?

    Like most of western society the focal point has always been on the sexual aspect. It’s more titillating to the masses.

    People say that ” religion ” should always be respected…. But watch how religious people react to other religions. ” my God is better than your God , and I’ll kill you in his name ( or wish horrible shit upon you) if you refuse to submit to my Lord and saviour “.

    Meh, fuck that.

    Women taking over the church/religion?😂 why of course they are in the west. It’s because you really aren’t who you say, you don’t really believe what you purport, you don’t practice the word because hard, difficult and inconvenient.

    I suppose that in earlier times religion was quite useful and life changing for the better in many ways. Soft and leaderless institutions can cash checks and build structures that people can dress up and attend once a week, but ” God ” won’t be there.

    Well we agree on something in this.

    I tend to the idea that religion is fundamentally an instrument of social control. The primary reason for the falling off of “religion” has been the development of more efficient means of social control. Our “secular religions” if you will. God just isn’t as useful and efficient as he used to be.

    And from a red pill atheist perspective it is easy to see Christianity itself as being the source of the entire “cucked” zeitgeist of the day. I don’t understand how anyone who spends any time in the manosphere can follow any sort of spiritual system centered around a virgin birth and a man who went along with that. That right there would seem a pretty core ingredient of the blue pill.

    Accepting a virgin birth makes it a pretty short leap to chivalry or he’s just a friend from work or she’s not like that anymore or wiving up a single mom. If you want men to spit out the blue pill maybe start looking at the myth of Christ with a much redder lens.

  8. “I don’t understand how anyone who spends any time in the manosphere can follow any sort of spiritual system centered around a virgin birth and a man who went along with that.”

    “I don’t understand.”

    fify

  9. “I don’t understand how anyone who spends any time in the manosphere can follow any sort of spiritual system centered around a virgin birth . . .”

    This exists in a world where the Sun can be spoken into existence and made to stand still in the sky. If miracles can happen then, you know, miracles can happen and it’s a rather small miracle compared to others which preceded it.

    Also, the spiritual system is not centered on the Virgin Birth*. Paul and Mark, the earliest of surviving writings that we consider Christian, don’t even mention it. The spiritual system is centered on the sacrifice. It’s the Day of Cleansing. bar Abbas (son of the father) is the scape, Jesus is the sacrifice. Yom Kippur without need of the Temple (or its cult).

    *The Immaculate Conception is not the conception of Jesus. The IC was Mary’s, conceived normally but miraculously without sin so that her womb would be pure enough to gestate the son of God.

    Not believing these things doesn’t mean you can’t understand them as a system of thought. You are making the error of naturalizing the supernatural.

  10. Women will start hating you when:

    You are good-looking, or better looking than most in her male circle and you’re climbing up the SMV ladder.
    You don’t give in to her demands.
    You withdraw your attention from her. Ok, but how do you withdraw attention ? You do it gradually.

    STEPS from withdrawing yourself from a woman’s:

    -Stop reading (and obviously replying) to her emails
    -Stop following her social media feeds. You may only post this pic… BFFs

    before you stop following her.
    -Gradually stop the phone and text exchange.

    Text replies examples: Kind off, What, Oh, Comma, Chinch Chong

    Drive the hamster dumbshit on a rollercoaster !

  11. When did YouTube’s golden boy cease to be its golden boy? When he dropped a meme that was a scathing rebuke of the default respect for women.

    https://i.kym-cdn.com/entries/icons/original/000/023/561/maxresdefault.jpg

    After that they took great pains to bury his material despite his subscriber counts continuing to climb. The message: “It doesn’t matter how big a draw you are to our platform, we’ll force your compliance with the narrative or bury you”.

    Meanwhile YouTube’s female CEO worth 9 figures reassures all men worth under 7 figures that they are the source of her burdensome oppression because we don’t respect her.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Susan_Wojcicki

    I wonder if somewhere in there she’s aware that I’ll never respect anyone who’s worth 9 figures yet clings to a victim narrative, much less anyone who thinks they deserve it by the mere act of existing. Male respect is a motherfucker like that.

  12. People have sex. Words have gender.

    Sex is inextricably tied to physical structure – and thus reality. Gender is an arbitrary classification applied for convenience’s sake. It is entirely imaginary.

    That is WHY the left wants you to use the word “gender”. They want you to not think about reality as it applies to their schemes.

    That is why it matters. And that is why you should not.

  13. “God is Love…”
    Assuming you believe that God is the Father of humanity (or, as Paul put it, the Father of our spirits), and that Christ was in the express image of His Father, then you can see the mental acrobatics people go to in trying to twist this phrase around.
    Paul said that a man should love his wife as Christ loved the church, and gave Himself for it.
    Christ communicated straitforwardly His expectations for his followers. He was merciful when they repented (that is, if they recognized they had done wrong and tried to make amends and to correct their behavior), but He also never flinched from calling them out (even harshly) when they were screwing up. How many times did he refer to the Scribes and Pharisees as hypocrites, or whited sepulchres (meaning something beautiful on the outside but inwardly full of corruption)?
    God loves all of his children. That doesn’t mean he doesn’t have expectations for them; or that there aren’t consequences for their actions. It just means that he always has our best interests at heart, and is sad when we don’t measure up. And he provided a way for us to be forgiven for our mistakes and to become better. But that requires repentance as per the above definition.
    Jesus wasn’t a hippie. Remember, he even cleansed the Temple by flipping tables, yelling at people, and beating them with a whip.
    He was supportive and kind when possible and when errant people could be reached with support and kindness. But when people REALLY screwed up, he wasn’t afraid to call them out in a public and confrontational manner. Ditto for the God of the Old Testament. The children of Israel certainly found that out when they started worshiping the Golden Calf.

  14. “We’re a generation of men raised by women. I’m wondering if an all female reboot of Fight Club is really the answer we need.”

    But as far as I can make out from what’s out there that isn’t what we’re getting. It sounds more like an all female reboot of Lionheart. At least Bella Thorne goes against the current trend of making all the Kung Fu princesses about 5′ 1″ in thick socks.

  15. “That is WHY the left wants you to use the word “gender”. They want you to not think about reality as it applies to their schemes.”

    Really?

    Take about 6 months and forget about labelling people, and just listen to what people say/think without any regard for who they profess to be.

    Lots of people with lots of megaphones, all mostly absolutely full of shit. The blue pill says ” Thou must pick a side!!!!”. Gotta belong.

    I never look to see whether an argument or thought is ” left or right “. I look to see if it is correct or incorrect wrt to real life.

    Ahhh, real life is becoming a quaint notion as masses of people are all caught up in the thoughts of a handful of ” others ” looking for attention by starting some kind of fight. Lots and lots and lots of endless talk. Proffesional ” debaters “.

    Some folks will call a man in a dress ” she or her “. Some will recoil at that idea and feel butthurt about it. Lots of people are losing their fucking minds, lol. Everyone feels the need to choose a side in a fight that has zero to do with them, and most will never roll up one sleeve to put in any work.

    Just complain, blame and talk.

    /end rant.

    ….going to lift a little.

  16. Wow all this God/Religion dogshit is a real blog killer ain’t it.

    I cannot respect anyone who believes/follows these man made control systems, y’all need to deal with reality or reality will deal with you.

  17. Thanks for the post Rollo. Respect is an important concept and this series is clarifying these sexed differences in the concept.

    Personally I don’t care that much about the religious facet on this series, which seemed a bit out of place to me, but from the comments so far it is relevant to other readers.

  18. “In September 2018, California became the first state to legally compel corporate board diversity with a law mandating that every public company in the state have at least one female director by the end of 2019. The law set off a scramble to find hundreds of female directors, many of whom don’t fit the traditional mold.

    If companies fail to comply with that mandate, they face a one-time fine of $100,000.

    By the end of 2021, the law’s requirements ramp up, compelling companies with five board members to have at least two female directors and at least three on six-person boards. If companies continue to break the law, they face a steeper penalty of $300,000 for every seat that should be filled by a woman.”

    “knew nothing about Cole before meeting him; he was just a name on a list of boys at a private school outside Boston who had volunteered to talk with me (or perhaps had had their arm twisted a bit by a counselor). The afternoon of our first interview, I was running late. As I rushed down a hallway at the school, I noticed a boy sitting outside the library, waiting—it had to be him. He was staring impassively ahead, both feet planted on the floor, hands resting loosely on his thighs.

    My first reaction was Oh no.

    It was totally unfair, a scarlet letter of personal bias. Cole would later describe himself to me as a “typical tall white athlete” guy, and that is exactly what I saw. At 18, he stood more than 6 feet tall, with broad shoulders and short-clipped hair. His neck was so thick that it seemed to merge into his jawline, and he was planning to enter a military academy for college the following fall. His friends were “the jock group,” he’d tell me. “They’re what you’d expect, I guess. Let’s leave it at that.” If I had closed my eyes and described the boy I imagined would never open up to me, it would have been him.”

  21. “No, people tell you to show respect when they want something or they have an interested invested in you deferring respect to the person or thing they believe you ought to be paying respect to.”

    Rollo’s formative years created transactional world view from a learned mistrust of women. Repeated early intersexual relationship failure and disappointing results created mistrust in his father’s advice specifically and in women generally. Rollo realized he can’t trust his father or women and stops trusting or expecting much from either. Guess what? Rollo feels better as his expectations of women we’re lowered to a transactional nature thereby avoiding disappointment.

    Clever no?

    As a young man mistrust was a protective coping method. As an older man mistrust became a self-fulfilling prophecy. Rollo believes that women are driven solely by sex for stuff or sex for semen. Full stop. Guess how a RP man behaves around women? All women are filtered through that binary preconception and he forces the relationship and the woman into that direction. Rollo preaches an understanding of women enslaved to their libido and materialism. No wonder women are indignant. Flip the script. It’s that self-same enslavement mentality in society that infuriates men.

    A transference of beneficial youthful mistrust became an adulthood operating principle of insecurity management and suspicion. RP is scarcity mentality and fear intellectualized as freedom from both. More accurately, RP is a lurch at license with psychobabble flair.

    RP is an inaccurate opinion of women and demands unnecessary time, talent and treasure, by design mind you, to maintain the above evo-bio fiction rather than simply accept female sentience. Hence RP men are miffed, contentious, oppositional and indignantly fuming as RP men futily, repeatedly fight intersexual battles. I was too. Operating under an erred RP understanding of women disorders reason, full human nature and is a disservice to men and women alike. RP gets it half right which is yet all wrong.

    I empathize with guys who are hurting. There is hope. It’s not here.

    Happy holidays.

    1. Exactly the armchair pop-psychology I’ve come to expect from binary absolutists who rely on their minimal exposure to Freud/Jung to explain and dismiss concepts they can’t handle upsetting their idealism (and usually religious beliefs) that sustains their existence.

  22. All men are the sum total of their experiences or lack thereof. Red pill doesn’t erase one’s experience, but it might inform a different perspective.

    Eh I have read all of Rollo ‘s work, and I don’t see what you’re seeing. You’re cherry picking the things that don’t jive with your experience. That’s a disagreement that doesn’t change the truthfulness in the presentation. Hypergamy is real, and it isn’t always solely related to ” stuff ” or ” things ” or ” semen “. Women want their needs met always and will ” sacrifice ” their wants for love or a level of comfort, but a man tools himself to believe they never reassess where they are, and sometimes when they detect shortcomings too numerous they boot for greener pastures.

    Hypergamy is constant, probably throughout the bulk of a woman’s life. LOl, it probably starts to dampen after 50 or so. No guarantee.

    1. I am open to reading what Eh thinks is the real nature of women. But let me guess, women are all unknowable and random individuals molded by their particular life’s circumstances, so drawing any commonalities or concluding any general truths about their nature is pointless because they’re a big box of chocolates and you never know what you’re gonna get?

      But again, if I’m so driven by the Freudian principles you think I am, then by all means enlighten us as to your take on the true nature of women.

  23. Simps and hedonistic, reprobate players need to become one integrated being again. And in that wholeness, become capable of the love they want to see in their women.

    The Ur-skeks are even ugly as fuck so anyone could look at them and say that it’s “game” that makes them capable.

  24. @Hans

    He’s already said what you’ve said before in other articles, only that he encourages men to fuck with those variables for personal gain. That’s a good thing and it is in line with the truth. That it’s there to be fucked with.

  25. Eh”Intellect”
    Rollo believes that women are driven solely by sex for stuff or sex for semen

    This statement is nonsense. It is as if you have not read a single essay on the site, just some sort of cartoon version in your head after a long night of too much alcohol.

    Question: Are you trolling or ankle biting?

  26. Is Eh now Purple Pill… Or outright Blue Pill? Damn!
    At least according to his posts, he was one of the success stories in the FR section, with regards to “Married Red Pill” and turning his marriage around.

    I never quite got why he was getting into so many physical confrontations in his FRs.

  27. I never quite got why he was getting into so many physical confrontations in his FRs.

    Truly? This was never a mystery.

  28. 😂

    Eh is alright. He’s just somewhere else. Like being in an alternative limbo land.

    Us old guys can’t afford confusion and flip flops later in life. It’s dangerous.

    Mental point of origin is good for you. Hypergamy is a real thing. Being in a ” good place ” after spending years in a ” bad place ” doesn’t minimize truth. It isn’t supposed to cause confusion.

    Anyone can change their lives and circumstances for the better, but the trick is not to lose yourself and a realistic understanding in the process. There is no magic and 99% of people have no supernatural ability.

    Hippies aren’t coming back.

  29. @liz – sure it was.

    His FRs invariably went something like “..and me and my wife were out and dancing and having fun and some hot young girl was eyeing me up and I chatted to her and went back to my wife and then suddenly the girl and some other big guy shouting and the guy started pushing me on my chest and my wife and I had to beat a hasty retreat”

    Presumably he was telling the truth about not verbally and overtly picking fights by insulting random guys etc. But at the same time there was clearly something going wrong on a consistent basis. It had to be something in his vibe and subcomms but it was never clear what it was.

    Eh is clearly not a socially awkward guy giving off “socially weird and uncalibrated vibe” in the classic newbie PUA mode (like our former poster @hank holiday and others). But at the same time..there was definitely something in his vibe setting people off (either that or he was leaving out huge parts of his FRs where he was going up to random guys in bars and shouting “fuck you” in their face and walking off – lol).

  30. If Eh communicated like a human being, I’d have a different impression.
    But every interaction made me think the above was no great mystery.

  31. “I empathize with guys who are hurting. There is hope. It’s not here.

    Happy holidays.”

    Was Eh’s account hacked by a feminist at HuffPo or Jezebel? That level of passive aggressive communicated there sounds completely feminized.

  32. One of the things my wife told me is that if we had boys, she would teach them to respect women. I just laughed and told her that I would tell them not to believe her. After reading this blog installment I think I understand why I said that. Respect for being vs respect for accomplishment.

  33. Let’s be clear. When Rollo discusses God, if you don’t like it, try to find something else to do. Don’t sh*t on people who believe in God.

    Kfg is about the only atheist I’ve found who has some concept of Christianity and isn’t a f*cktard when he discusses it.

    Now, to be even-handed, there are plenty of Christians who are f*cktards when they discuss Christianity, lol.

    Respect for God has to do with submission to a sovereign to whom you owe fealty in a lord/servant covenant, kind of like the old feudal system. That’s why I said that respect for God is a whole ‘nuther animal. In the modern world, we just don’t think that way.

    In a sense, there is unconditional love–a Creator for his creation. Kind of like someone who builds model airplanes and just enjoys playing with them.

    But God’s love in a Christian context requires faith, so it is conditional. You don’t get to enjoy the benefits of Christ’s sacrifice without faith.

    Oh, well, enough of this, probably not too interesting for most of you.

  34. “I never quite got why he was getting into so many physical confrontations in his FRs.”

    Eh never bothered to calibrate other people. He figured he could use social skills to brute force his way through any problems which encountered him. I also don’t think that he gave much comfort.

  35. This comment is about what I’ve noticed about female sexual wiring.

    For female babies, it’s there from day one. It doesn’t wait for puberty to arrive before the wiring becomes active.

    Female babies look to strength for protection. The baby will run to me if she’s afraid rather than to the women.

    The baby will hide between my legs and rub her head against my crotch. It’s sexual without being about sex, because puberty hasn’t arrived. It’s a kind of sh*t test.

    The baby likes to be thrown in the air and manhandled. But there are times when she wants comfort and she goes to the women for that, mostly. I only give the baby comfort if they aren’t available.

    The baby tests boundaries like a pro. She wants you to enforce your boundaries. The baby will eventually respond to repeated demands even if you keep your voice soft. If you raise your voice, she responds immediately.

    Just some things I’ve seen about a female baby.

  36. “Respect for God has to do with submission to a sovereign to whom you owe fealty . . .”

    This is what the NT word commonly mistranslated as “meek” implies. Literally it means “broken horse.” In Arabic the word is . . . wait for it, wait for it . . . muslim.

  37. Nice bit of writing, @Rollo. I enjoyed your style and pacing here.

    The reason I identify as a “conservatarian”, when pressed to put a label on my politics, is that I believe that social order matters. I believe that culture is upstream from everything, not just politics. Culture includes politics is a better way to say it. They are interdependent upon each other, both forcing and feeding back to each other in various ways.

    What is our social order currently? Polyglot, decaying, atomized and alienated, a morass of lowest common denominator beliefs which keep us from killing each other most of the time, nothing more. We have no sense of unity or fraternity any longer. You see, our culture has already been destroyed so when discussing respect, start from the assumption that our reference is retrospective. These social codes/memes only exist if enough people assent to them. If one says that Western notion of respect no longer exists in our pidgin, degraded, divided low culture and social order, what they are saying is that the idea of what respect means isn’t universal and axiomatic in the society in question. And ergo, it doesn’t exist because it’s not adhered to, it just becomes an old idea…

    As an aside, I’m making a glancing reference to memetics there, if you aren’t familiar with the concept you should be. Do some googling, you’ll see how ideas/concepts/words are transmitted and shape our perceptions, social order, language, reality – it’s fascinating. Okay, back to the topic at hand.

    The concept of respect varies cross-culturally, in my experience. Western cultures generally venerated a “gentleman” who adheres to some degree to the chivalric code. Remember, that gentleman was always supposed to be a warrior and a romantic poet, the gynocentric view of the ideal man is codified most precisely in the romantic period of western history already and this is who is “respected” (look, it’s a verb too, not just a noun, next time you hear some moron talking about being “disrespected” tell him/her it’s a noun, see if they even know what a noun is).

    We call the epoch culturally, “the Romantic era”, occurring in the late 18th and much of the 19th century. It was a challenge to the classical liberalism and underlying tyranny of rationalism it was said to impose. This was an overt rejection of the “Age of Reason”. Female values and imperatives have long been present in our social order due to the biological imbalance in desire and selection criteria. It’s good for the species, just not for low value men, but I digress again…

    Romanticism valued the individual and the emotional – sound familiar? They were reactionary as well and wanted to revert to a medieval social order. Fyi that last sentence describes the Alt-Right, due to their rejection of classical liberalism as mere “civic nationalism” (anti-intellectual idea, but that’s the kind of garbage thinking the pseudo-intellectual alt-right has built its business model upon). Fyi, doesn’t mean you can’t read Spengler or Huntington or Murray and get the delusions we are walking around inside, just means I don’t shove classical liberalism out the door. Many alt-righters could be well-described as Romantics – Greg Johnson, VoxDay, for example. Their ideas aren’t new, lol. How many of you here who worship those guys intellectually even know that? Even if you have read Evola (the fascist mystic hack some alt-righters masturbate to)?

    Okay, finally I can get to respect. So, what was respectable for men in Western civilization? It was to be a “gentleman”. What’s most amusing about the article and chattering in the comments is how nobody even twigged to this – that’s how absolutely the Left has dominated the memeplex, they’ve snuffed out the idea of being a gentleman for us. For people of the right who are traditional to not immediately connect the idea of respect to being a gentleman, it’s shocking. Lol. We are so fucked and so gone already, yet so many on the right utterly miss it. We are boiling frogs who have already been boiling for quite some time.

    A gentleman treated women as weaker and “fairer”. A gentleman would take his coat off and get quite cold to put it on a woman who accompanies him to keep her warm without complaint. Holds doors. Treats women with a certain respect and deference, signaling that he is a protector of women, not a threat. There are masculine aspects as well. A gentleman keeps his word, and a gentleman attends to his social reputation as measured by “honor”.

    Another aside, “honor cultures” lack the tempering aspects of classically liberal, christian societies and run amok with violence and oppression due to honor.

    But even in the West, honor could involve a duel or some kind of combat to resolve ultimately until not so long ago. A gentleman was expected to defend himself from assaults to his social standing, his “honor” if you will, to the point of risking death. One’s reputation was measured in honor and respect was formally based on those ideas.

    Women were respectable if they were chaste and good homemakers, wives and mothers. Those who weren’t were socially shamed or dismissed and set aside as “spinsters” or “harlots” or worse…

    What’s actually revealed in this article and the comments? How depraved and fallen our society ALREADY IS. Respect is gone, there is nothing we agree to respect anymore. It’s just another word to be misused and redefined and played at while we descend into Gamorrah. It’s this calculation that had me recalibrate my formerly traditional, monogamous mating strategy to chasing and bedding young hotties, hehe. I’m just being a realist.

    I run into so many on the Right who think we are “winning”, who believe Trump is turning it all around, lmfao. Hey, he cut taxes and regulations and is changing bad trade deals, takes 110 IQ to get that shit right. Our decline continues apace however. We have no unified, uplifting culture or set of values as a people, everything else is just noise. Rome went on for 400 years like this, we could twist in the wind for quite some time, but I don’t think our adversaries will allow that. Read Gibbons, The Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire. The absurdity, depravity and corruption during the decline is shockingly similar to what we see in our pop society in the West today.

    Hell, we aren’t even “a people” anymore. Talking about respect without first getting that is useless. It’s like worrying about the color of the water you are drowning in. Merry Christmas, motherfuckers.

  38. To you from failing hands we throw
    The torch; be yours to hold it high.
    If ye break faith with us who die
    We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
    In Flanders fields.

    “Respect is gone, there is nothing we agree to respect anymore.”

    And the poppies grow on the fields where respect died and was buried. Any who can still hear the call of those troubled souls who cannot sleep are openly mocked for it. The glittering gold of respect held out by the old men of 1914 turned out to be a rather low grade of fool’s gold. The War to End All Wars (an idea ironically recycled from a previous war and the “peace” of Westphalia) fostered more war and ended the civilization that spawned it.

    Be sure to wear your LGBTQ+ rainbow flower on Remembrance Day.

  39. That line,

    ” Poppies for young men, death’s bitter trade ..”

    Has been rattling around in my head for 30 years.

  40. Anticipating book 4. A lot of the respect dynamics are being force fed to men who work office jobs. Respect all the women, or beer prepared to have a “tail between the legs” visit with HR is the undeniable constant.

  41. “The bots are breaking themselves on my rational blog”

    Who and what bots are you talking about lately? Seen to us or deleted by you?

    And maybe you should comment on your blog more often…It would enhance book sales. And not ignore your regular commenters to high heaven.

    It’s been years now you don’t give feedback to the comments. Why is that?

    Because you want group-think?

    I’m not a big doubter. My buddies that moved on are…

    In regards to explaining the true nature of women.

    20/30 years married. And blah, blah, blah. Sex on tap. How the fuck did that happen? No suicide, no divorce. No zeroed out…

    Yes Hypergamy is a thing. No, all men can’t get women. Pareto principle holds its own.

  42. Waiting for your 4th book Rollo. I’m not so happy you’re dealing with religion. I think you should keep it in side bench. Are you trying for any revolution Rollo or breaking down a dynamic? Waiting for it, pal.

  43. Idolizing women as if they were god and giving them unearned respect will get ya kilt quick. Women now run the world. Men built, maintained, fought and died for all of civilization, while women simply colonized and appropriated these stunning achievements from men. Bezos recently lost billions to his X. Stories such as his abound and will only increase. Women are smart – they don’t marry down. Men? Men are dumb as rocks and are kept that way for a reason. I love the vocals and melody of the below song, but I hate the words and blue pill sentiments. There’s so much to like about the song, but the underlying elements are extreme gynocentrism and male disposability. Chivalry is a fool’s paradise. Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Those that worship at the altar of vagina are doomed. Only Red Pill men will survive and thrive, which is why the MSM hate hate hate Red Pill. I almost learned that the hard way and very nearly perished as a result. Countless millions of others from the past and in the future can’t or won’t know such good fortune. Countless millions of men have already died upon the altar of vagina. Red Pill is the only solution for men and will therefore eventually be censored entirely. Worshipping poon with unearned respect most often results in a man’s untimely death.

    This one song will bring much misery and suffering to many a man’s life. When’s the last time a song that encouraged women to worship men came out? Yeah. It’s like that.

    My lover’s got humour
    She’s the giggle at a funeral
    Knows everybody’s disapproval
    I should’ve worshipped her sooner
    If the heavens ever did speak
    She’s the last true mouthpiece
    Every Sunday’s getting more bleak
    A fresh poison each week
    “We were born sick”
    You heard them say it
    My church offers no absolutes
    She tells me, “Worship in the bedroom”
    The only heaven I’ll be sent to
    Is when I’m alone with you

  44. The bots are breaking themselves on my rational blog”
    Who and what bots are you talking about lately? Seen to us or deleted by you?

    Might even be a bot complaining about bots.

  45. Well, thank you for the post Rollo. Always good to get the juices flowing.

    It’s interesting to read Peggy Orenstein’s “What it Means to be a Man,” in the latest issue of The Atlantic. Interesting, infuriating, sad, how much she gets wrong and backwards.

    Predictably, she lumps stoicism with toxic masculinity. Hierarchical structures, based on competence and experience, too, are toxic.

    There’s more. It mostly smh material.

    It’s tragic to think that people will read the article and consider it wise or remotely correct.

  46. I’m just here to give props for the use of an image from Dai-bosotsu Toge, or “Sword of Doom”, 1966.

    Perhaps the darkest psychological exploration of madness and sadism in the Chanbara genre (‘sword fight movies’) of Japanese cinema. Big name actors and crew, including Mifune-san. (Made and re-made many times in the pre- and post-war periods). It’s worth hunting down to view. It’s slow, dramatic, bloody, and the double-finale will leave you shaken.

    “An evil mind… an evil sword!” has many meanings, on many levels of a man’s life.

  47. @Scribbs is right on with the below:

    “What is our social order currently? Polyglot, decaying, atomized and alienated, a morass of lowest common denominator beliefs which keep us from killing each other most of the time, nothing more.

    I’m getting the same impression lately when I stop to observe any events/institutions/locations where people congregate. Not sure about the super rich but I’m seeing the widespread beginning traces of the above in lower class, middle class as a whole, this used to be the exception but it’s fast becoming the rule.

    The culture is disintegrating before our very eyes, the basis of respect is gone. The sky is not falling but it’s definitely changing as the sun begins to set on this current culture. Economically we can last for a very long time but I suspect we will collapse culturally long before we would economically.

  48. We have no unified, uplifting culture or set of values as a people, everything else is just noise. Rome went on for 400 years like this, we could twist in the wind for quite some time, but I don’t think our adversaries will allow that

    Think about society, what is society? A group of people? I’ve seen many time a kid/guy getting beaten up and everyone around them is walking. Society is a concept that everyone is united, where the reality is everyone is for themselves. Like a lioness hunting a zebra, every zebra individual is running for their own lives instead of being united and defend lion’s attack. In a sense, they actually can beat the hell out of lions only if they were united. But doing so would very much question the existence of all predators.

  49. Women intentionally try to conflate “respect” with “courtesy.” I exercise courtesy toward everyone unless they abuse it, then they are denied even the most basic courtesy. I owe no one – man or woman – respect until they earn it.

  50. Sure, God is love…with vengeance too. I only know the Hebrew Bible, maybe you kids have more emphasis on love…

    Rollo: “Performance determines respectability for men and earning one’s way into Heaven might be the highest form of respect, right?”

    Yes, but you can never know which man has actually earned it, some men are rewarded in this world to remove their reward in the next.

    The default flow of spiritual energy is God -> Man -> Wife -> Kids
    There is more depth to this than I can get into here, but in a sense we men are to God as woman are to Man. We are trying to impress and get attention, and prove ourselves with performance, yes…but at the end of the day the analogy breaks down since truly God doesn’t need anything from us.

  51. Rollo

    The bots are breaking themselves on my rational blog

    Thanks for all that anti-bot work to keep the blog comments open and useful.

  52. Just Beers
    It’s interesting to read Peggy Orenstein’s “What it Means to be a Man,” in the latest issue of The Atlantic. Interesting, infuriating, sad, how much she gets wrong and backwards.

    Well, duh. Cats can’t really explain dogs, can they? Plus no way any genuine red pill text is likely to be published in Atlantic, it’s way too SJW converged to let any truth out.

    Generally, when we read text about men written by women, a useful game to play is “Spot the projection”. It’s typically in the first paragraph, but sometimes later. Not a good drinking game unless one wants to get really drunk in a hurry.

  53. @Anonymous

    As a man who can hold his liquor, that drinking game is the route to alcohol poisoning. Every single one of those articles I’ve ever perused is an IMAX theater. Projection that’ll make your jaw drop.

  54. “You have to earn respect” is bullshit.

    Some seem to take this to mean that they do not need to respect others until they got some proof that it is warranted. Until that happens, they are free to disrespect everyone.

    You do not know me. You do not know shit about who I am, what I have endured, what crosses I bear, what I have done to others, what I am capable of doing.

    I may be a narcissistic psycho, I may have killed people, I may have saved lives, I may have raised a dozen orphans, built a business empire, I may be a huge womanizer, I may be dying, I may have taught great men everything they know, I may be an astronaut, I may have porked yo mama.

    You should play it safe and respect me by default. If not else but because it may turn out that you otherwise wake my ire, and that I might be a bigger fish than you.

    And if it really turns out that I am weak, stupid, useless and inferior, do you feel some sort of obligation to be rude and condescending? I know people who think so, and they are alone and miserable.

    There are over seven billion people on earth, and if you expect every single one to prove their mettle with every person they encounter you need to read up on the concept of factorials.

    No, you are better off with the reverse: respect everyone until they give you reason not to.

  55. Lord of the Flies

    No, do not respect anyone. Simply be civil, or courteous, with strangers, neighbors, etc.

    Respect the value of civility (peace amongst others). Respect? Reserved for those who are deserving.

  56. Thanks, kfg. I looked up the word “praus”. Seems that it had to do with turning wild horses into war horses. Not merely “broken”, but trained, obedient, and useful to its master, like a war horse to its rider. Intelligently submitted.

    Sure, “Islam” means “Submission”.

  57. That’s a very ” Christian ” thing to say….

    😑

    ….does ” Christian ” mean ” hypocrite ” by chance?

  58. @ Rollo Tomassi >> yes, I do agree, from the masculine perspective and definition as you’ve outlined them. In my case, I respect the ‘performance choice’ of a pic from Sword of Doom. It suggests knowledge of a seminal work of cinema that is outside the general purview of the average or even above-average American movie buff.

    A comment>> Perhaps you mentioned it, perhaps not… respect for prior accomplishments bears on any current measure of respect? I don’t remember mention of such a component, in the articles. The emphasis seemed to be on current actions deemed worthy of respect [burden of performance]. I for one, do not hold men to Janet Jackson’s standard: What Have You Done For Me Lately? If a man has earned my respect, he gets to keep it until he acts with immorality. I may be an ‘outlier’; I’m an INFP from a small family with a small circle of friends.

    Women who’ve earned my respect also get to keep it… but the moment they ask Janet’s question of me, they act immorally, and so they lose my respect.

    Just look up Briffaults Law

    Also, read War Brides on this site.

    Women are pragmatic to survive and reproduce. This is why their particular style of self-deceit is so effective (and scary af for them when it’s discovered and exposed, as red-pill does)

    Perhaps this is part of the reason why men so highly value loyalty and duty in friends. It’s likely also the reason why FRAME is discussed so often here.

  60. There isn’t just a war on the masculine, there is a war on the old as well. More specifically on the memories of the old. To give an old man respect for what he did when younger would be to acknowledge those things you’re trying to stuff down the memory hole as fast as you can.

    The Orwellian machine must denigrate those who just won’t die off fast enough specifically for those past deeds worthy of respect. They teach this denigration in the schools these days, with many pedagogues considering this to be the purpose school.

    All hail the Red Guard and the glorious Cultural Revolution!

  61. @ Just Beers… Spell my name right, Byr-otch!

    Thanks for the Briffault’s bit. Seems logical, to me. (Female ‘game’ can be a ‘spinning plates’ activity, too. Not all ‘association’ is immediately beneficial: sometimes they are just lining us up!)

    War Brides is a good article, true. I will revisit it.

    “Perhaps this is part of the reason why men so highly value loyalty and duty in friends. It’s likely also the reason why FRAME is discussed so often here.” < Can Confirm, the first part. The “war of the sexes” is not metaphorical. Best to have good men at one’s back.

  62. There are fifty shades of respect. Barrack Obama is a very respected charming person doesn’t mean he can fuck around. I fuck respect.

  63. @Fire and Fury
    “Barrack Obama is a very respected charming person doesn’t mean he can fuck around. I fuck respect.”

    Most of the respect for him, at least as I saw it, was respect for the office of the President. On that note the insane hypocrisy with these women and leftists, always present, drives me up the wall. They decry ‘privilege’ and ‘institutionalized X (patriarchy, discrimination, etc)’ yet at the same time flood previously male spaces and demand the respect built into those spaces by the unbroken chain of men who built them.

    For example they’ll yell about male privilege at workplace managerial positions but demand the respect those positions are due once they affirmative action their way into them. Women yell about getting into Universities and then complain that the university degree is no longer respected. Obama, specifically, demanded the respect that a Nobel Peace Prize was supposed to confer but did nary a thing to earn it. They never wanted to dismantle the positions, they just coveted the respect those positions meant to the point of wearing it as a skinsuit and demanding everything unearned.

  64. “Obama, specifically, demanded the respect that a Nobel Peace Prize was supposed to confer but did nary a thing to earn it. ”

    @Emery

    I missed this demand. How did it come about? Right of Center here btw, so not trying to defend, just looking for clarification

  65. What it is! The Politics of Pussy, the media tells them what to think, the player learns the status-quo and uses it in game. This is literally the rise of the green weeny. This has been going on forever.

    The loss of respect for elders is based in green weeny syndrome. If they (them there those guys) can convince youth that old people caused climate change,then dissing them will get junior laid. He can get away with it not because gramps can’t beat the daylights out of him,rather that he won’t.

    When I read this ” If a man has earned my respect, he gets to keep it until he acts with immorality.” I wonder where his morality is based, in Disney? or perhaps something more old school like hunters safety? or fishing etiquette. Perhaps the Geneva Convention, or queens rules.

    This Politics of Pussy-Green Weeny Rules appears to be more responsible for the going Man Police Police men running amock dissing each other than JP’s Genie Coefficient .

    How does a man think about killing animals to eat? what about electric vs petro or wind vs natural gas. Save the wolves or eating vegan? This reflects on the color of his weeny and hours in front of the boob tube.

  66. A habitual exchange with my ex-wife:
    Her: “You don’t respect me!”
    Me: “You mean I don’t agree with you.”
    For her, respect was agreement and submission to her choices.

  67. By a funny coincidence I have been thinking on this myself, and on 11.29.19 I wrote in my own personal “Observations” (just a journal I keep of thoughts I think are worth writing down) that:

    “Respect for women (on the part of men) is a different animal than respect for men.

    Simply put: men respect other men based on their criteria for manhood, and the degree to which other men live up to this – they are held to a rigid standard. Men respect women for their adherence to a standard of womanhood/femininity. If a woman wants to enter a male domain, she will be judged as a man; she can never be more than a second-rate man, which means that she will never earn the kind of respect that men reserve for other men, those that are “good at being a man”. They may respect her as a person (i.e. she is a “good person”), but they will never look up to her as they would another man. Women need to understand and accept this, or they will be forever dissatisfied.”

    The concept of women demanding “respect” just for BEING women is a wrinkle I hadn’t put as much thought into, even though I “know” this, tacitly. Good post.

  68. 5k40
    Simply put: men respect other men based on their criteria for manhood,

    Put another way, “Men become…”

    The concept of women demanding “respect” just for BEING women is a wrinkle I hadn’t put as much thought into, even though I “know” this, tacitly.

    Because “women are”.

    By the way, the modern perspective of seeing everything through women’s projection is at the root of the $tar War$ movie with the girl who “just can” do everything without any training.

  69. In Scott Adam’s book, “Win Bigly,” he briefly discusses pickup artists being successful because they advertise their skills, not because they are nice guys. Interesting read.

Speak your mind
