Here is a very interesting article from someone in an interesting demographic. This is the same demographic that is plastering Vancouver with MRM posters and provoking and exposing a very nasty, violent backlash – anarchist men and “goth punks”.
A structure crumbles before it collapses and this is true of beliefs too. The structure of beliefs we call a worldview is as vulnerable as any other. That’s Limeywestlake’s tale of the red pill.
Read the whole thing, if only for the music of the language, but please pay attention to some really interesting points he makes.
He analyzes that iconic Occupy poster of the young woman standing in a ballet pose on the statue of the bull on Wall Street. He points out that the hazy figures of men around the statue are of real people, men down in the dust and muck and danger of actually facing the police, and that they are blurred out and effaced. Meanwhile the young women, who can stand on that statue in that pose only because of the efforts of the men below her, is centered, celebrated and focused on. It is an iconic image of male disposability.
But he sees none of this when he first sees that poster; all this comes to him only after he sees how feminists treat another man. They treat him with the same hostility and contempt he had been getting form them for years and blaming himself for. But finally when it was aimed at some other person, someone he respected and cared about, it suddenly all became clear to him.
Something else – he comes to this from a left-wing background. The MRM gets smeared as a right-wing sump of biter men fearful of losing their male privilege. Well, the man who wrote this article is no tradcon.
