A dark side of the Manosphere I disagree with is the genuine misogynistic side.
Oh believe me, it exists. And though my female detractors may not be able to distinguish between me (a guy who treats women as genuine equals by holding them up to male standards) and these men (who genuinely hate women) trust me, there is a chasm of difference.
I first ran into this when I wrote a piece standing up for the kind and sweet women who actually stand up for and like manly men. Haley's Halo, Grerp, Judgy Bitch, Sunshine Mary, Dr. Helen, etc. I got sick and tired of not just the nitpickyness of the misogynistic side, but also the "purist" aspect of it. That if you didn't follow along with their purist views that had derived from their discussion forum, you were a traitor, not a real man, not really for the cause, blah blah blah blah. It also irked me that these girls would get the pettiest of complaints and ridicule from these men, suggesting said men were not only academians (focusing on theory and never deploying their wisdom in the real world), but cultists and purists with no capacity or willingness to tolerate slightly different views. Any disagreement or (dare you suggest) to back off women was not tolerated and was deemed traitorous, etc.
It not only made me realize that yes, there are genuine misogynists out there who hate women, but it also made me realize there is a key decision or fork in the road men must take when they take the red pill. Sometimes they take the fork that is healthy and productive, the other fork leads to misogyny. So let me explain.
For whatever sociological reason you want to claim, most men are lied to in their youth about the realities of the fairer sex. It isn't fair. It isn't just. And it costs them greatly. They have every right to be angry and I will go so far to claim they have every right to revenge.
But revenge is not going to come through the mere hatred of women, lumping all women, even those that like men, into the same group and punishing them by cumulative proxy. It isn't even going to come through singling out the individual feminists and leftists and attacking (justifiably) them. It's going to come through the only way it can - non-participation.
Understand the flaw of modern day feminism - it is erroneously based on the lie that men unfairly benefit in society because they are men. They then take this false premise and run rampant with it, extrapolating it irrationally to other aspects of life, demanding irrational and unfair concessions from the rest of society. Their entire ideology is based on a false and self-serving premise.
So to exact your toll of revenge on them will not come through mockery or ridicule. They are immune to it. They are so wedded to their ideology, not to mention delusional, any criticism is rendered moot. And even more so, it CERTAINLY won't come from mocking and ridiculing innocent women as you lump them in with the rest of feminists. The ONLY way you can get your toll of revenge is by taking away the most important thing in their lives.
Now, let's qualify this statement.
When I say, "yourself," I mean, "a reasonably attractive man who has a life and his schtick together."
If you are Mortimer Snerd, living in your mom's basement, Monday Morning Quarter Backing the Manosphere, playing pure academian, never approaching and getting shot down by a girl in your life because you're too scared, and have thus far used the theories and epiphanies of the Manosphere to excuse your own lack of performance,
then no, we're not talking about you. And the reason why is that you have no value. Sorry to say that, but the Manosphere is the MANosphere not the OPRAHsphere. We deal with reality.
But if you are a reasonably in shape guy with a life and stuff going on, then yes, your best toll of revenge will come from you removing yourself from the situation.
The reason why is very simple, but one feminists will SCREAM is not true - the most important thing in life is a member of the opposite sex you fall in love with. And if you deny women your (presumed) quality self, that's how you get your revenge. You go your own way, you only have sex with women, but never date them, or you could even consider marriage, but only to women who are traditional, truly self-supporting, conservative/libertarian, in shape, etc. In short you deny undeserving women what they want as you have standards and self-respect.
The resulting revenge is not immediate, obvious, or climatic as in the end of a movie, but much much worse.
It is silent. Subtle. Cold. Delayed. Deferred. And unnoticeable until it is too late.
It is delivered when a 45 year old recent divorcee realizes it isn't 1992 any more and boys aren't thronging to take her to a "Poison" concert.
It is delivered when a 50 year old executive NOW decides it's time to settle down and all of her male peers are looking at 34 year olds.
It is delivered when the 42 year old comes up to you drunk in a sequin shirt saying "Cutie" and you in your heart of hearts have no desire to talk to the woman.
That is how your revenge is delivered.
Because no matter how much they scream and contest otherwise, the most important thing in life for a woman is another man. Oh sure, during the day they'll talk loud enough so you can hear how they don't need a man. And sure, at night they will shoot down scores of advances, as they tally up their "like" score from FB. But at the wee small hours of the morning they're crying in bed because there isn't a man there. And if you refuse to be that man, then you have your ultimate revenge.
Of course this is contingent on one key thing - that you are at some minimal level a coveted man and not merely an individual who abuses the "Manosphere philosophy" as an excuse to excuse your non-performance. Because otherwise you're merely an academian, a Monday morning quarter back plagiarizing the philosophies, observations and laws theoreticians in the Manosphere have come up with to excuse your lack performance. Again, this is the MANosphere. Not the OPRAHsphere. I leave it to your own intellectual honesty to admit to yourself which kind of man you are.
