If you're MGTOW and you know it...

Actually, this episode of Redonkulas is for the guys who are "red pill" and maybe don't know it- but all of you will find yourselves nodding along to the points that Popp makes here:

The most critically important point that Popp makes is that, the moment you start accepting the truth, you can never look at the world the same way again. You cannot go back. You cannot avoid it. You can only move forward, knowing that much of what you once believed to be true is simply wrong, and that you must now figure out how to deal with the world as it is, not how it ought to be.

The results can be jarring, to say the least.

You will quickly find that your tolerance for bullshit drops to zero in a very big hurry. You cannot stand being around idiots and you have no interest in dealing with their nonsense.

You won't be able to stand the banal conversations that excite everyone else. Talking to people at work can become sheer torture; while they're all nattering on about the latest episode of Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead or- in the case of the women- Keeping up with the Kardashians (dear God, just kill me now...), you're frantically looking for the nearest fire alarm to pull, just so you can get out of having to deal with such insipid nonsense.

You won't care about politics very much. This blog didn't exist back in 2012, but I can tell you that my interest in who became President could reasonably have been described as: ZFG. It just did not matter. They were both horrible candidates and it became increasingly difficult to tell one apart from the other.

(That, by the way, is what makes 2016 so unusual. For the first time in literally an entire generation, we have an actual choice available. It isn't necessarily a great choice, but I've seen far worse.)

You can't care much anymore about the same things that distract most people. Fantasy football leagues become completely stupid to you, because you start caring only about doing things that actually matter to you, that are real and interesting for you.

And as a result, you're going to begin to cut people out of your life who exhibit the traits that you once did.

Accepting the truth comes at a terrible cost. It means simply walking away from people and things that were once very dear to you- because you have changed, but they have not.

At some point, you'll be hit in the gut by this horrible feeling that you are alone, and that you will spend the rest of your life that way. And you will be tempted to save those around you so that they, too, can join you on your journey.

In reality, you cannot save anyone. You can only show them the way. That is when you realise that, actually, being alone isn't that terrible after all.

And then, eventually, you find others like you, who have embraced the same truths that you have, and paid the same price. That is when you realise that what you went through was worth all of the agony, the doubt, and the sorrow.

It was worth the price, because now you are free- to live your own life, on your own terms, the way God Almighty intended you to do. And nothing and no one can stop you from doing what makes you happy.

That is why the Manosphere is so important. It is literally saving lives, every day. That is why we matter, and why we are not going away.


  1. Awesome piece. I discovered the Red Pill on my own in my mid-twenties, soon after the advent of the Interwebz, and haven't looked back since. It's been a solitary journey, to be sure, but the rise of the Alt-Right and the Manosphere means there are many more of us around. We're just getting started.

    1. Indeed we are. We've got a long and difficult road ahead of us, but the more men wake up and refuse to accept the lies that they have been told, the easier that the journey will become. And men like you, who were MGTOW before the term even existed, paved the way for the rest of us.

  2. Wellll....life with a bad woman, either present in your home or siphoning your bank account, is surely Hell. But life without a good woman sucks, too. My advice: If you can't find a traditionally motivated, anti-feminist, American girl, GO THE FUCK OVERSEAS (but not to the Former USSR; that usually doesn't work out that well).

  3. life without a good woman sucks, too

    Indeed, sir. All of the men that I have known who have lived happy, successful lives of achievement built on their own masculine strengths, have done so with a good woman to love and support them through that journey.

    not to the Former USSR; that usually doesn't work out that well

    Interesting you should say that, sir. I hear conflicting reports about women from that part of the world.

    On the one hand, they are considered to be far more feminine, caring, and nurturing than the average American woman. From what I have seen, this is true.

    On the other, I have heard nightmare stories about how, as soon as a man puts a ring on one of them, they go from being svelte ballerinas to bloated babushkas in a very short time. And they turn vindictive in divorce court extremely fast.

    Where, in your experience, does the truth lie, sir?

  4. I don't have any personal experience. Some friends have. I think the way to look at it is that no society can suffer three generations of communist rule and not be literally demoralized - literally as in stripped of any sense of right and wrong - from it. My friends' experience is that ex-Pact girls are, indeed, beautiful and caring...right up until they meet someone with more money or a bigger dick.

  5. There's been a lot of conjecture that Leo Frankowski (A truly decent SF writer) suffered from the plague of a Russian wife... and that his unexplained death might have been self-inflicted as a result of a messy divorce.

    One of the things I have noticed most strongly is that certain entertainment, once you have started seeing the propaganda that underlies our culture, ceases to be entertaining. You start critically analyzing the messages in movies and videogames, and you are left with a great heaping, steaming pile of bullshit. 96 pound females that can kick the crap out of a dozen 230 lb mercenaries, 'True love' that is clearly an exercise in hypergamy, uncoordinated multiculturalism that somehow achieves victory over well-coordinated homogeny, a vastly outsized number of successful multiethnic relationships, Magical negroes galore, Every genius being some kind of third world or sexual minority, happy and well-adjusted gays, lesbians, and sex-changers galore....

    It wrecks your enjoyment of everything from sitcoms to action sfx extravaganzas... And yet, somehow it's worth it. You gain new appreciation for stories that show the human condition as it really is, art that is truly beautiful, and love stories that have a real future.
