Pills are great until they kill you

Men take them too; only metaphorically

“Women are hypergamous. They’re all sluts. They can never learn to love!”

➢Okay, so the fact that men constantly want to fuck every hot woman within eyesight means… what, exactly?

Obvious statement: systemic legal issues aside, it is also true that within the context of romance BOTH sexes are capable of hurting one another’s feelings. For every man bemoaning that his crush won’t pay him mind, there’s a girl wondering why the guy she slept with won’t call her back. “But what about divor” — You won’t get an argument from me on that. It’s fucked up; I agree. But that’s a discussion for another time. Right now let’s talk pure sexual strategy. For example, take the following red pill idea:

“The only solution to dealing with hypergamy is plate-spinning and sleeping with lots of women.”

Really? Just like feminists in the 1960s and 70s who decided it was liberating for women to sleep around? Call me a cynic, but if women doing it to men didn’t help society and you want to do the exact same thing back, my guess is you haven’t checked the definition of “insanity” lately.

Spoiler alert: it’s not only girls who go baby-crazy. Your instinct to fuck every willing vagina with a fertile womb is testament to that fact. Ask any man who’s sired children what happened when they held their baby in their arms for the first time, and you’ll get the same story every time: it changed them on a fundamental level. And that change is no joke.

Or you can go and talk to any player who’s hit his forties and still hasn’t had any kids, and find a single one who’s happy with his romantic life (good luck; you’ll need it). Hell, even the Playboy king Hue Heffner was on an eternal search for a soulmate despite the mounds of hot women around him begging to be one of his ‘plates.’ One of the minor deities of red pill thought — Rollo Tomassi, who himself advocates “plate spinning” — happens to be married, and has offspring. Rollo himself has said that once you marry, the power of plate-spinning disappears. So why did he do it? Don’t answer — we both know the answer, and we both know that any excuse to the contrary is bullshit.

But ultimately, this is the real problem with plate spinning, as far as I’m concerned: the notion of “marrying the virgin” isn’t just biological instinct; it’s biological instinct rooted in statistical fact. If you’re the sole sexual partner in her sexual history, the chances of divorce are almost zero. Multiple partners, and the chances increase. By the time the girl’s had 10 partners, her chances of staying faithful drop so far you might as well give her half your shit upfront and hope that’s the worst that happens.

“But that won’t happen to me! Plate spinning!” Like Rollo himself said, not every girl is willing to be a plate — the girls who don’t like to slut around aren’t privy to being spun, are they? But let’s play the other numbers game: for every 10–20 women you sleep with, that’s another guy who’s getting divorced. Remember, red pill ideology started out in part by recognizing the absolute destruction divorce wreaks on men. Once you hit 10 women, which one of your brothers-in-arm’s divorces would you like to take responsibility for?

— Men do lead women within a relationship, after all. It’s not like she’s the one who paid for dinner and a movie. She may be the one who opened her legs, but you’re the one who decides where your penis goes.

Note: I am NOT saying that serial monogamy is the only way to go. I’m not saying plate-spinning isn’t a plausible dating technique. What I *am* saying is that the more women you fuck, the more baggage you create, and somebody down the line is going to suffer for that baggage.

…and the primary sufferers of that baggage will generally be men and children.
