A caveat before I begin this piece – I have not seen the full film. It’s not available in Australia and I can’t source it online. But I don’t need to see it to know that it is a horrible indictment on the state of masculinity in our society today.
The Red Pill is about the men’s rights activist movement which is known as the MRA. One of my first podcasts was an episode on why I think the MRA movement is a terrible idea. For those who don’t know, the MRA fights for men’s rights specifically in the realm of the family unit. Divorce proceedings, custody of children, paternity tests, abortion decisions – all of these and many more are completely skewed in favor of women. The men in the MRA are men who have been completely screwed over by the system and they are doing their best to fight back.
While their motivations are completely understandable, unfortunately the way that they go about fighting these injustices is completely self defeating. Worse than that it is also illogical. Feminists are not threatened by the MRA, although they put on a good show of pretending to be upset. Because as long as men fight for equal rights in the divorce courts, feminists can sit comfortably in the knowledge that the MRA will never win.
Think about it. If equal rights were granted to men then that would negate the unfair advantage that feminists have constructed for themselves over the last forty years. Two wrongs do not make a right. In other words, you do not solve an injustice by granting the same unjust advantages to men. You fight an injustice by removing those rights in the first place. That is how you return to a level playing field.
There are scenes in the documentary of phalanxes of men and women lined up opposite each other, the women screaming abuse while the men stand there in an attempt at stoicism. Has this ever happened before in human history that the two sexes have literally been at war with each other? Women are not the bad guys here, as neither are men. It is the cultural Marxists whose prime objective of the last fifty years has been the breakdown of the family unit.
Lately there have been many articles about the phenomenon of men checking out of marriage and having children. They reason is that it is too dangerous for them to enter. They have seen their fathers make terrible mistakes and be taken for everything they have. They know young women of their own age who have been schooled in manipulation techniques, to cry rape or abuse at the drop of a hat in order to get what they want.
What better way to ultimately destroy the family unit than if the family units are not even created in the first place.
In seeking similar rights as women the MRA justifies and thus perpetuates Marxist feminism. They have fallen into the trap of trying to fight the battle on their enemy’s terms.
So let us turn out gaze to this documentary. It is a sad indictment of men. Being a man has nothing to do with seeking out rights for your own sex. Paul Elam and every other MRA member in this video are examples of Gamma males in action. I despair that they have not only gone about things in this way but they have sought out the help of women to be on their side. Can you imagine it? Men seeking similar rights that they lost to women utilizing women to help them. It is deplorable. It is unmanly. It is the opposite of masculinity. These men have been emasculated in every sense of the word and they are groveling in their own misery.
And to top it all off we have a documentary outlining their plight that has been made by a feminist. They not only have to get women to fight for them, they need feminists to fight for them. How reprehensible. I have no doubt that they believed that having a feminist take up their cause would give them some form of credibility. Instead, it only adds to the overall picture. That the filmmaker in question, Cassie Jaye, got support from people such as Mike Cernovich, Milo, and also managed to raise money from members of the Roosh V forum among others simply astounds me.
Look at the gamma males in the film sob big crocodile tears as they wail at the injustice of it all. Look at the lineup of concerned women who want to fight for these poor hard done by men. And gaze with rapture at the good looking young blonde feminist, (which I thought was an oxymoron), as she bravely goes to and fro conducting her interviews as she battles with her own personal feelings on the subject.
Men, real men that is, don’t behave like this. They may think that they are fighting the good fight, but not only are they going about it the wrong way, they are providing a terrible example of what it is to be a man. The answer to this fifty year battle is to undo all of the gains that the cultural Marxists have made. To do that you need to unstack the courts and change the laws. Fault-free divorce has to go. The stigma of being a single mother has to return. Abortions must be made illegal. And the father must return to his rightful place as the head of the household.
Get women who support the MRA movement to fight for those things and then I’ll be impressed. But they won’t. That would be outrageous. Which is why, at the end of the day, they’re all sitting around jerking each other off and wallowing in their collective misery. It’s sad, it’s shameful, and it has nothing to do with being a man. The ultimate irony is the title of this film. None of these men have swallowed the red pill. They are all blue pill, through and through.
