About

Sitting here like uninvited company
Wallowing in my own obscenities
I share a cigarette with negativity
Sitting here like wet ashes with X’s in my eyes
And drawing flies

Bathed in perspiration drowned my enemies
Used my inspiration for a guillotine
I fire a loaded mental cannon to the page
Leaning on the pedestal that holds my self denial
Firing the pistol that shoots my holy pride
Sitting here like wet ashes with X’s in my eyes
And drawing flies

And I said “Hey what you yellin’ about
Conditions, permission, mirrored self-affliction?”

“Hey what you yellin’ about
Sadists’ co-addiction, perfect analogies?”

“Hey what you yellin’ about
Conditions, permission, mirrored self-affliction?”

Leaning on the pedestal that holds my self denial
Firing the pistol that shoots my holy pride
Sitting here like wet ashes with X’s in my eyes
And drawing flies

Hi Rolo or who ever reads this, Im a listener of your books, my job allows me to do, so i had listen to Rational Male at least 4 times and Preventive medicine about 2 and a bit more. My question which you do talk about on Preventive but is still not clear, is to know what if the women on LTR get introduce to The Rational Male? will this knowledge make her aware of why she does what she does? will she “calm” down or less-shittest me? how will her game change after knowing what i know? Thank you… Read more »

Yo! Guido, “……still not clear, is to know what if the women on LTR get introduce to The Rational Male? will this knowledge make her aware of why she does what she does? will she “calm” down or less-shittest me? how will her game change after knowing what i know?” A little introduction.

She read the comments and figured out I was commenting. She told me she… Read more »

Dear Rollo Tomassi, since you are studying the male and female dynamics, from a religious approach, are you aware of the “Theology of the Body” from St John Paul II?
This book is his ultimate philosophical work, from 30 years of hearing couples confessions, analysed from the Bible and mostly from Genesis, preventing all the damage caused from pronografy and the sexual revolution. I think it will save you a lot of work and I also beleave you have enough backgroud to read it as a philosopher from a philosopher although it was writed by the Pope.

Your work is truly revolutionary and as a man in his late 50s I’ve had a lot of life experience that validates the vast majority of what you say.

I’d love to hear your thoughts on PATRICE O’NEIL, he was the only publicly known famous man talking about this in the current year, and had he not died tragically he would’ve been heralded much like Peterson. What’s your take on what he’s said?

Looks like another disturbance in the Manosphhere. Rollo, please keep the Red Pill 101 going. Since something /somebody is apparently trying to break up the core group, I am surprised The Ministry of Truth is not involved, or is it? This is not the way you get stronger. It’s almost like Lenin and Stalin purging their Officers just before a major war, it restrained the country’s ability to fight. Who is next?
Keep the focus on saving guys. Fight the good fight.

Rollo Tomassi: You should read article in Lifeste News entitled “Cardinal Burke has ‘become too influenced by radical feminism’ “. Note also strong backlash against Burke’s very measuresd, reasonable concerns. Burke, perhaps most influential American Catholic prelate, has authority in Church greatly reduced by Pope Francis, largely for his traditionalist views. Feminization of Catholic Church since sexual revolution, including Pope Francis’ attempts to pander to single mothers, is topic very appropriate for your upcoming book. You are spot on regarding inter gender dynamics, and the Church, using ecclesiastical language, is being torn apart by this feminization of its great institution.… Read more »

I don’t think women care about the choices they make since in their opinion they are always right and how dare you tell them anything. By the time the few care to re-evaluate their choices they are usually old (too late) and only desperate men with less option will go for them. What advice can women be given when red pill essentially gives us the hack to avoid, date or use them up if they don’t serve our purpose in the smv.
How do you even know a woman is really red pill and not pretending?

“Don’t you think when a man accepts the burden of performance he automatically enters into a transactional relationship?” It goes to psychological “self-differentiation”. Look that up. In red pill terms: put your oxygen mask on first. Primary in LTRs: Be attractive don’t be unattractive. You don’t give because you want to receive, or be externally validated. You do it because your glass is full and it seems like the right thing to do. The burden of performance is you being full of charisma because you have put in the work to go forward gracefully and hopefully have the wind in… Read more »

I believe the idea of burden of performance is an implied nature of being in a relationship. It’s part of what a woman values in a man. As men in general we have to meet this burden of performance even when we are not in a relationship. It’s a societal double standard that our core appreciation by others comes as a result of being able to meet that burden of performance. A man who doesn’t meet his burden of performance doesn’t get much respect even from other guys even in something as unimportant as playing video games within a group… Read more »

In what ways do you mean Rollo simplifies women? I suspect it might have something to do with saying that women can’t help that they are hypergamous or that they act a certain way during their cycle because they can’t help it. I like to think that most of the time women are aware of what they are doing and probably exhibit such behaviors automatically from years of practice and being enabled by society’s expectations of them. For example, “There’s no way that little woman can hurt you”, “Look at how she’s crying. You must have really done something to… Read more »

I was one such man and have a multifaceted story surrounding my experience with it in the church and with Christian women.

Here almost every girls are on the pill. How this affects their behavior ? How it affects their feminity and reproduction desire ? I searched about and I understand that it regularize their hormones. There is no more ups and downs.

How is this regularization of hormones impact us as men ?
Their desire of reproduction\feminity is reduced, But our desire isn’t. Is this why they keep a monopole on sex ?

Hi Rollo
I’m a big fan of your work.
I would like kindly to ask you your take about work and money.
We are sold the idea that work=money, we are sold the idea that to get married and to have a happy life we need to work. It feel like an employment imperative to control people and play safe while you can get fired in a second.
The red pill is about piercing through the veil of the pervasive ideology of the feminine imperative.
Do you think a red pill for the employment imperative is needed nowadays to help freeing people?
Thank you.
