My brother, who also had a long time crush on a female friend that was not reciprocated, “took the red pill” two years ago.He eventually got a girlfriend (not his crush) which “proved” red pill worked.

In some ways red pill did make him more attractive.

He started exercising, eating better, improving his style and hygiene, expanding his social circle, and actually asking girls out.

but so much of pick-up is based around mistaken ideas regarding gender roles and female sexuality that it’s difficult to sort the gold from the toxic, rape-y dross.

Of course, there are a lot of people who don’t feel this way.

My brother’s gotten caught up in the Red Pill Philosophy.

It’s a mindset that shows up a lot in the nether regions of the internet that’s basically a mix of PUA and Men Going Their Own Way, but with a lot more violent misogyny.

To “break” her he would ignore and insult her in public, spread rumors about her, and use the more coercive PUA tactics.

One of the popular themes in red pill is the idea that men who want sex should “just go for it”.

One of the more vocal subsets of this particular philosophy is known as The Red Pill.

Before I get too much further into this, allow me to share the email that prompted all of this: Doc, can you help?

I mention all of this because one of the things I’m always pushing against are the toxic philosophies that so often masquerade as dating advice.
