The Red Pill is a sub-culture of men, and some women, who strongly believe in traditional gender stereotypes. They believe that biologically men are meant to spread their seed and sleep with as many women as possible, and that women are essentially just designed for male pleasure and to be submissive to men. They also believe that all women are designed to cheat and use men until they come across an Alpha male to put them in their place. Ironically they look upon men who work out and are in good shape with derision and call them “Chad’s” in reference to jacked frat guys.
They believe that men know what’s best for women and should be dominant in relationships, and that basically women want and need to be told what to do, what they want etc. That, inherently, women will seek out a strong Alpha male who will put them in their place, take care of them and tell them what to order off their menu. They also believe that many women often don’t even realise this inherent need, and merely just need to be shown the way, guiding them with subtle and not-so-subtle manipulative behaviour that they often refer to as negs and backhanded compliments. Their whole ideology is predicated on the idea of talking to women in a manner designed to chip away at their self-esteem and self-worth, in the hopes of appearing aloof and thus spurring the woman on to fall in love with their ultra-Alpha masculine ways and compete for their male approval thus finding them a submissive partner.
It’s all based around the book The Game by Neil Strauss; the RP community often refer to themselves as Pick Up Artists or the “Seduction” community, because through their expert use and understanding of the female id and neuro-linguistic programming they’re able to win over even the most hardbitten and radical man-haters. They’re a pretty smug lot.

Now, don’t get me wrong, I firmly believe that a lot of women are attracted to confident, assertive men who aren’t afraid of making a decision or taking control but the whole Red Pill thing is going too far and borderline abusive in many cases.
The way you were talking cheating on your girlfriend and then talking about how unintelligent guys who go the gym are, you were coming across as a bit of Red Piller so to speak and it just seemed needlessly antagonistic for the thread haha
I don’t mean to say you are a Red Piller or hold these beliefs but your original post was just kind of easy to misconstrue haha So yeah, sorry about that.
