What happens next?

The other day a poster on The Red Pill asked what happens after taking the Red Pill? It's a valid question, and one I'd like to touch upon, but before I do I'd like to provide a quick primer on what it means to take the Red Pill.

The Red Pill is an analogy hailing back to the film The Matrix, when one takes the red pill and is exposed to the true nature of the world around us. In the manosphere that means becoming aware of things like hypergamy, "alpha fucks, beta bucks", how attraction functions and differs between the genders, how society views male sexuality vs female sexuality, and so on.

Once you get a firm handle on the Red Pill way of life, a lot of men tend to become jaded as they see women's manipulations for what they are, how society quite often treats men as walking wallets, cannon fodder, or worse, and how little respect men truly get in this day and age. Along with becoming jaded and cynical, some men lash out and turn the tables on women. This is especially common in those new to pickup once they start to get good results.

So what happens after all this, after men take the Red Pill and are ready to move on once the veil has been lifted?  Well, it's really all up to the individual. Some men withdraw inwards and become what many would refer to as the Men Going Their Own Way (MGTOW) movement, which typically means forgoing women and relationships and focusing on themselves, their job, travel, friendships, and so on. Personally I don't ascribe to this definition as I believe men in the pickup community are also a type of MGTOW. They eschew social rules and do what they want for themselves, social judgement be damned. That is a pretty clear example of going their way if I ever saw one!

Another option for men who've taken the Red Pill is to introduce Red Pill notions to their blue pill friends, those still "plugged in", so to speak. Sometimes they do this with gusto, whereas others do this slowly. Personally I think soldiering on as normal as if nothing has changed, and quietly and subversively introducing friends to Red Pill philosophies and whatnot is the way to go so you don't burn too many bridges. Remember, humans tend to resist change, and embracing the Red Pill is exactly that, as is moving up the social pecking order, which is one very common result (getting good "game").

Watch your back, play nice at work, and enjoy all the freedoms life has to offer.
