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.
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?
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?

Look chicks can use this device to titillate and pleasure their G-spot and clitoris but they’ll still be miserable if they aren’t satiating their hypergamous emotional needs they’ll be reaching for the box wine or SSRI’s. A woman’s biggest sex organ is the mind – this device is not going to solve their true needs
A large part of many women’s frustration is sexual.
They might not realize it, or they may, but that dissatisfaction bleeds over and becomes a part of their ” being “.
What’s gonna happen if that monstrosity in the article catches on? What if it become all the rage ( on social media )? ” … I’ve never had a man give me that kind of feeling…”.
Yeah, hypergamy won’t care at all, but don’t forget that hypergamy also includes a better sexual deal, which a lot of women just can’t get.
Have any of you used Quora to ask questions that reveal the nature of women?
If the device takes off within the village – they’ll all swear by it – just like the 38 year old career woman raves about how awesome her career is and has been – being self-sufficient and all being financially independent – even if they quietly pop an SSRI nightly, sip box wine all weekend or drink their way through girls nights out regularly
The cognitive dissonance around knowing that they’ll have to work until they drop dead, just like us men is profound.
Actual sexual stuff is different and can’t be equated to careers and nonsense like that.
Have you ever seen what women will do for some satisfying sex?
A lot more than they’d tell anyone.

You’re completely 100% missing my point.
But it’s cool.
Anatomy required evidently.😐
Is it that y’all haven’t had multiple sexual experience with multiple women or something? Or did you just not pay any attention what do ever? This is why the actual red pill is sorely needed. Maybe if it’s explained enough you’ll ” just get it “.
Sex for 99% of women is indeed emotionally driven, but it is on a different plane altogether than hysteria or other emotional stimulus. Basically apples and oranges, still fruit but different
Emotion sexually is half of the equation. .

SJF, when Blax says that women are frustrated sexually, he means that women are frustrated emotionally. It has zip to do with hysteria. Emotions are strongly linked with sex in women’s sexual wiring. They want a guy they have to chase hard. If a guy isn’t spinning plates, no girl will chase him. Even his girlfriend. Even his wife.
Even if you’re married, you have to get out in the singles mix and at least flirt with women.
ASD I see what you are trying to do there. Blax and I were talking past each other. Blax was mentioning “the monstrosity”, a dildo. He then said: “A large part of many women’s frustration is sexual. They might not realize it, or they may, but that dissatisfaction bleeds over and becomes a part of their ” being “.” Back in the old days psychiatrists didn’t know how to deal with the actions and behaviors of woman that might be caused by sexual frustration.

We’re not talking past each other SJF. That thing isn’t a ” dildo ” if you look at it and read how it works, or you know women that use(d) dildos and you understand how they work and their limitations.
Read the article, look at the pictures.
That ain’t no dildo, so all references, regardless to how old, are not appropriate and are misleading/misunderstanding.
Dildos don’t replace pleasure of a man, even if he’s inept and lacks knowledge. That G-spot is a whole other thing though.

Consumption might be an insignificant part of an economy. North Korea. Cuba.
“Cuban is like Spanish, except that they lack words for some luxury items.
Oh, I found a new blog you nonprogressives might enjoy:
Lots of details about Washington shenanigans without a lot of the rhetoric. They wade through the weeds of govt. filings. Claims are typically muted until there are a lot of facts to support them.

Don’t ever think the maintenance of life requires consumption of soy.
For thousands of years the chief economic problem of Japan has been too many native people living with too few native resources. They also have the highest industrial output from the fewest people in the world (although Taiwan is catching up). Adding more people does not benefit the Japanese people. It benefits the international banking cartels. Poor countries are the most consumer based, as they cannot afford frivolous, non-consumptive luxuries. Poetry and jewelry may be purchased, but they are not consumed. The Hope diamond may well outlast life on Earth. Whereas the loaf of bread you purchase today is gone… Read more »
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. Tomassi, what’s your next move? You’ve already created the Us Vs Them ( Alfa vs Beta) dynamic, the perfect scenario for a new religion. Are you going to punish Beta males next time for their life-long misery? Don’t you also think that only your way is… Read more »
Tomassi, what’s your next move
Do I spy a blast from the past? I wonder which witch that is?
Not that it matters.
kfg, mercantilism is a long dead concept. Not having natural resources is no big deal if you have major industrial output. Japan’s problem isn’t a lack of natural resources. They can import the food and energy they need and still have one of the top standards of living. Consumption includes expensive stuff like bass boats, firearms, liquor, cigars, cars, motorcycles, European cruises, air travel, and other expensive toys. A lake house, timeshare, etc. Cosmetics aren’t cheap. Everyone consumes health care, too. Hospitals are consumers of medical equipment. Factories consume robots. The trades consume tools. The military consumes weapons. Not cheap… Read more »
kfg For thousands of years the chief economic problem of Japan has been too many native people living with too few native resources. 65 years ago the population was under 100 million. Japan functioned find then. Perhaps they are moving back to a population that can be supported by their own land area. Certainly it is clear that even now they would rather remain Japanese at a reduced population than import foreigners. Globalists don’t like that for some reason. https://www.worldometers.info/world-population/japan-population/ As far as I know the truly “black” factory does not yet exist, but when it does it probably will… Read more »
Consumption means to use to the point where it is no longer useful. You do not consume a European cruise any more than you consume standing up. Activities are performed. You consume diesel fuel to cruise and food to stand up. n. In economics “one who uses up goods or articles, one who destroys the exchangeable value of a commodity by using it.” Attested since 1745. The Hope diamond is a valuable trade item because it is not a consumable. Once acquired in trade you can trade it again at full value (which is not the same thing as full… Read more »

So we sent the Black Fleet on a “diplomatic mission.”
Kfg you sir, are a dream killer. 😂 A lot of ” work “, or more precisely effort has gone into the whole ” consumer ” narratives we are taught to hold near and dear. Words cannot have meaning beyond what someone wants them to mean. Just yesterday on cnbc, I heard much conversation about consumers and the consumer driven economy in relation to the stock market. So you doubt sir, that Apple isn’t one of the most profitable producers of ” consumables “? And what about Netflix and all of the streaming services that ” consumers ” ..er…consume? No.… Read more »
And “franchise” now means something like “story” or “series,” as in the Star Wars movie franchise. The Star Wars movies are not a franchise, they are a property. It’s the Hasbro Star Wars toys that are a franchise.
This is what happens when “consumers” read the trade rags and start parroting the jargon without having clue what it means.
Not enough golf claps to clap…
“A consumer economy describes an economy driven by consumer spending as a percent of its gross domestic product, as opposed to the other major components of GDP (gross private domestic investment, government spending, and imports netted against exports)” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Consumer_economy This is what I was relying on for my description of a consumer economy. Cruise ship tickets are, in fact, consumed. Computers and cell phones have a useful life of about 5 years. Houses are also consumed, as the value of the house declines unless it is maintained. Whatever the maintenance cost is is the amount that has been consumed. Consumption… Read more »
They haven’t figured out sacrifice isn’t a virtue yet. I’ll explain it to them later.
And “franchise” now means something like “story” or “series,” as in the Star Wars movie franchise.
Yeah, well, I use my voting franchise to declare this a real franchise:
ou do not consume a European cruise any more than you consume standing up.
Yet some are consumed with envy at the very thought of such a cruise. Especially if the cruise allows one to go to Rome and view the house near the Spanish Steps where Keats died of consumption. Go figure.
And so poor nations that have all they can do to come up with enough money for food and socks are consumer economies, while rich nations that spend their wealth to generate a large, technologically advanced military to police the world and support a large number non-productively are not. Although the latter may do a fair job of hiding what’s going on with various accounting tricks. “Cruise ship tickets are, in fact, consumed.” Yes, and a bit of steel becomes unrecoverable iron oxide. My copy of Lawrence of Arabia had a bit of plastic wrap on it and that was… Read more »

That was then In the now, the Japanese would still rather remain Japanese in decline than become something else. They aren’t the “Japan that can say NO” of the 80’s and 90’s, but they are still Japanese – by choice.
There’s an interesting lesson, at a time when other countries are being changed beyond recognition in a matter of a few years by migration.
One might argue that the Grass Eaters aren’t really Japanese in a cultural sense. No work ethic, etc. The social safety net is a very heavy burden for Japan’s economy. With so many young men opting out, it only got worse.
Well this will help with IPhone XIII sales…
Librum 5 manufacturer Purism also makes two laptops. Some might find transitioning to Debian difficult, others not so much.
Also OT: EU accuses Grindr of illegally sharing user data.
Read further and find that Tinder is also sharing data. So are other apps. Read even further to see what entity now owns Grndr. Lol.
Turning on “location services” and letting apps access it is totally normal now.
Sacrifice is not a virtue.
Yollo Comanche Sacrifice is not a virtue. A lot of philosophers and religious leaders would disagree. But the context matters. Could be wrong, but the Stoics of ancient Greece and Rome are one example. Dr. Viktor Frankl, author of “Man’s Search for Meaning” and a survivor of the Nazi camp system would also disagree. It depends on the “why”, the Frame. A man whose mindset / belief system requires certain things of him may well engage in self sacrifice because he requires it of himself. A man working three jobs because he believes it to be his duty is not… Read more »
“In RM terms, a man’s Mental Point of Origin may require him to make sacrifices, in order to meet his own goals, keep his self-respect, etc. That sacrifice has nothing to do with any girl’s expectations, either.” This isn’t a sacrifice. It’s a choice. Choose how to spend your time, energy, resources. Choose which people to piss off. Choose which people to reproof as you climb. There are people who get jobs for the EXPRESS PURPOSE of avoiding having an actual MPO. These are the tools and lackeys that chuckle to themselves as they help someone else stack their paper.… Read more »
Yollo Comanche This isn’t a sacrifice. It’s a choice. Choose how to spend your time, energy, resources. Choose which people to piss off. Choose which people to reproof as you climb. Yeah, sacrifice often comes in the form of a choice. As long as it’s a choice that a man makes from his MPO, rather than “because my parents want me to” or “because that’s what the gynocracy told me to do” or “because it will make Her haaaapy”, etc. I see no reason to object. Some men I know restore old tractors. It’s what they do with time and… Read more »
