The Archwinger Series: Men are not happy

This is part of the writings of Archwinger, one of the best writers in the manosphere. He’s since moved on, but I want to maintain a small repertoire of his work.

About once every month or two, there’s a post somewhere on Reddit, by a woman, saying something like, “My boyfriend suddenly started doing Red Pill stuff and now I want out,” followed by 4-6 paragraphs explaining how her boyfriend is now a controlling, abusive asshole who works out and wants sex (because these traits are, of course, very, very unique to The Red Pill, and any guy who exhibits them obviously went online, found us, and we ruined him). These threads get seized upon by our detractors, who eagerly point out: “See? See!? The Red Pill doesn’t ‘work’ ! It just ends relationships and turns guys into assholes!”

Authenticity: Revisited

It makes sense that the traditional conservative mental model (TRADCON) sees Game as manipulation since he builds an elaborate back story of him as the benevolent plow horse and dictator because he wanted her to love him. If he uses manipulation, clearly everyone else must be.

So what is it about narcissism that's attractive? In a word: Authenticity

Truth Demands Action, a kind rebuttal to a belittling critique.

I can only blame myself. I was here too late for feminism to sink it’s teeth into the meaty asshole of the Red Pill and take a big chunk out of it. I’m part of the second generation of asshole, the one which the god fearing hyena nibbles away, constantly weary of the lioness returning to finish her meal. I ask said hyenas to provide a thoughtful rebuttal, and this is as close to one as I’ve seen.

Replacing our fathers: Part I

What you have to understand, is your father was your model for God.
If you're male and you're Christian and living in America, your father is your model for God. And if you never know your father, if your father bails out or dies or is never at home, what do you believe about God?
What you end up doing is you spend your life searching for a father and God.
What you have to consider is the possibility that God doesn't like you. Could be, God hates us. This is not the worst thing that can happen.

Testicular Cancer Meetings: The Field Report

This is the frustrating part. I’ve walked into a testicular cancer meeting, where our boy here is lamenting his balls. Seated around him are five men. In reality, there are more, but there are only five that matter.

On the 5 archetypes of male self improvement, and why 4 of them are garbage

Ask your psychologist if thottrozone is right for you

Side effects of thottery may include sex dolls, excessive weed use, and in rare cases, a van running over 20 people. Ask your psychologist if thottrozone is right for you.

Society has made certain choices and freedoms available. We can either accept the natural concequences of them, or admit we have a problem,

not both

Vetting, Part VII: Boundaries come from within and address the root issue

etting is the relationship strategy where a man takes a list of values and qualities he prefers in women and uses it to assess the viability of the woman he is currently dating so that he can know if she is worth committing to over the long term. The quintessential strategy for the type of men who readily identify with being traditional and conservative within a modern and liberal society. Note, these are little ‘l,’ and little ‘c.’ This isn’t about tribal politics, this is about men. The vetting strategy is thrown around as if its the same strategy men have used throughout history, when in reality it’s a horrible mental model; a narrative guys use to provide comfort for the grim reality that relationships all end, and most end well before the man is ready to move on, or his children have had the full biological father experience.

I Can't Even, or; telling better stories

I can’t even. This is the worst thing you can hear from someone. It means you’re boring and they can’t stand being around you. Lern charisma, learn to tell better stories, stop worrying about having that 1% life as a surrogate

What is "The Main Event"

This is an advanced topic, a main event. Building off of the concept of Dread game, the point where a man gets submission from his wife. Kind of like what guys preach about in the bible, only it actually happens.

Playboys, Alpha males and 'Real Men': Manipulative container words

Soccer moms and feminists calling us misogynists. Men I used to look up to having public freak outs. Traditional conservatives irritated that I don’t take the responsability they need me to take regardless of the lack of incentives. Insecure men fighting over who gets to be the king playboy.

It’s time to articulate the amount of manipulation that exists to turn you into everyone else’s expectations, instead of your own. It sounds cultish, but it’s really wanting men to get together and become individual success stories, not cogs in non sustainable machines.
