New Red Pill film masterpiece offers devastating criticism of women who grow old

Good news, everyone! Another Red Piller has made another terrible short film!

“Naughty Nomad,” a Red Pill travel writer who claims to be known as “The Indiana Jones of Pussy,” has produced a not-quite nine-minute film called I Can Do Better. As he explains it on his website, the little drama “explores themes like hypergamy, female entitlement and spinsterhood.” So if you’re into all that you are in luck!

I don’t want to spoil anything, but rest assured that in the film an old woman apparently sort of regrets rejecting some dudes back when she was younger.

The film isn’t as technically, er, challenged as Davis Aurini’s masterpiece Lust in the Time of Heartache, nor does it include any play-fighting ninjas in fedoras and ill-fitting suits. But it makes up for these deficiencies with some awesomely inept acting — and a script that seems to have come straight from the Red Pill subreddit.

In the film, set in the present day, a young woman named Sonia with an assortment of hair styles rejects a succession of suitors, declaring each time that she could “do better.” (Evidently she is supposed to be aging, as everyone knows that young women with shoulder-length black hair eventually mature into women with long blonde hair.)

In the final scene, also seemingly set in the present day, Sonia has suddenly been transformed into an old woman. But she’s up to her old tricks, rejecting a similarly old suitor because she still thinks she can “do better.” At least that’s what she tells her son and his family, who are waiting in her apartment to drink coffee and eat cookies with her.

But then they suddenly vanish. See, they were imaginary, because no woman who rejects dudes that other people think they should be grateful to date can ever hope to have children.

Apparently this is supposed to be a sad ending, at least for her, even though she gets to eat all of the cookies herself.

There is also a Russian version of the film, in case you were wondering, “hey, is there a Russian version of this film?” Though I’m not sure why you would be wondering that, frankly.

Grumpy: I don’t think there is – it was the INEVITABILITY of it that this man had judged, based on the biographical detail I had given him. Also White Knight was obviously being used as a pejorative. But yes (like SJW) really there is no shame in a man seeking to make a woman feel safer, I would hope that my kids DO do that if it becomes necessary.

Every MRA ever: “How dare a woman get married – turning that alpha into a beta! How dare a woman not get married – spinster! How dare a woman fall pregnant – why aren’t you on the pill! How dare a woman have an abortion – murderer! How dare a woman have children – forcing the poor man to raise it or pay child support! How dare a woman not have children – what are you even for if not motherhood! How dare a woman date an older man – gold digger! How dare a woman date a younger man – he deserves a woman who hasn’t hit the wall! How dare a woman have sex – s**t s**t s**t! How dare a woman not have sex – frigid prude!” etc…

I do seriously wish I could pin an MRA down and really ask them what a woman’s role in the world is, seriously, give me a straight, reasonably achievable reply where any two requirements are not mutually exclusive.

It was quite common for widowers to remarry in a pretty short time span. It was usually to women in their own age group who were also widowed or divorced.

I read this bit, and I got excited because I thought you were talking about women getting married to women. 😐

As for the topic at hand: I actually was the person who dated whoever was nice to her (in high school). I learned my lesson rather quickly.

I was really desperate for positive attention from boys my own age, having been picked on for being chubby most of my life (I have since learned to embrace my squish. I don’t always love my squish, but it’s part of me. :3), so whenever someone gave me the slightest bit of positive attention, I would fall head-over-heels for them.

It never went well. At all. Each relationship fell apart at the slightest breeze, because we just weren’t compatible and we were essentially forcing it.

(Except for the last relationship I was in. It lasted five years, and it was lovely, but it was mostly LDR, and eventually we just didn’t have time for each other. I couldn’t handle it, and we agreed it was best to just cut it off, though we also agreed that if we were ever in a better position, we weren’t against the idea of starting over. I think this relationship was more successful because we’d been friends for a while first, and gotten to know each other first.)

So, I don’t understand why these men seem to think that rushing into a relationship is such a good idea. They think the simplest nice deed will unlock something in a woman. Take it from me, RPers, that shit doesn’t work. Being nice to a person won’t do shit if they’re not attracted to you or you’re not compatible. If things go south, move on. Don’t dwell on it forever. Sure, look back and think about what went wrong and try to gain some introspective (and no, ‘It’s obviously HER fault!’ isn’t always the answer).

I’m single now, and while I do find myself wishing for a partner on occasion, I’m willing to wait until the right person comes along. Because I want someone who wants me, and someone who I want just as much, if not more, back.

And I’ll be DAMNED if it’s one of these self-righteous, hypocritical, self-serving bags of road apples. Because I can do better.

Being happy without a man in her life is probably the most vicious form of misandry a woman can commit.

Besides being a long, drawn-out 8 plus minute video of something that can be simply summarised as a typical manosphere “hypergamous woman grows into old cat lady”… it really seems to be some sick ‘karma’ fantasy toward a person who simply is simply living their own life and making their own choices and revelling in how those choices turn out in the end.

A lot of manosphere types accuse feminism of trying to convince men of desiring women they deem undesirable while this video is doing exactly the same thing in reverse.

I’ve said this before, but I really think part of this is that redpillers think men (in general) are so much better in all ways than women that a woman turning a man down is horrible, because she is so much less valuable than he is. Turning down a man is uppity.

I started seeing Sonya as a woman that was afraid of commitment, rather than a woman that was arrogant or picky. Her expression during the proposal scene was almost one of horror, and the way she was rejecting each guy was with really stereotypical things (“he’s too short/too boring/too old/too poor?”). It definitely wasn’t a portrayal of a woman too confident in herself to settle second best; especially at the end, her body language was steeped in insecurity.

Kirbywarp, that’s exactly how I saw it too. I knew what they were going for, but it didn’t come across at all. Sonya seemed depressed even from the start, and definitely afraid of any sort of intimacy. I suspect this was a complete accident, and solely due to her lack of acting ability. (Well, also due to the tortured dialogue)

The stereotypical rejections reminded me of Seinfeld (“She smelled like soup!” etc). Except not funny.

I didn’t even catch on that her family at the end was imaginary, because she seemed about as happy to see them as she was ever happy to see anybody, which fit with her overall flat personality. When they disappeared she seemed pretty much the same, emotionally. Like… start her at the top and let’s watch her fall, at least. Have a character arc. Start somewhere, end somewhere else. Nope, she seemed totally fine being on her own (happy or not, it seemed to be exactly what she wanted – so what’s the point???)

There was nothing at stake for her at all through the ‘film’, and she never went anywhere emotionally, and she did not die alone with cats eating her face – a huge disappointment, esp. since that was the only reason I hung on til the end. Pacing was deadeningly slow, the overall tone as flat, and the characters were barely people who had no point of view. It’s not even fun to MST, for chrissakes. Total flatline. No there there.

Stopping myself before I end up doing a rewrite and/or an actual critique. It was so boring it actually made me angry. Poor storytelling, dude.

ALSO ALSO ALSO, all the other women in the film were DISAGREEING WITH HER. So how this reinforces the idea that women in general are hypergamous or entitled, when literally ONE WOMAN in the film was (supposedly) behaving this way is beyond me.

The commenters that said that men need marriage more than women are spot on. Both men and women benefit from the emotional support of a good spouse, but only men benefit from the institution of the committed relationship itself. Women usually contribute more to the day to day household chores than men, freeing up men to do more paid work, women usually contribute more childcare than men, freeing up men to take on more paid work, men usually get a social status boost from being a “family man”, women get demoted down to the status of being the “Mrs.”. In return, women (supposedly) get access to the men’s pay, but of course men get access to their wive’s pay as well.

As to the video, I agree that women who say they want to get married but are “so picky” that they find something wrong with every man are usually commitment-phobic. Sure, ending up alone when you dream of a family is sad, but shaming has helped no-one in the history of ever overcome anxiety.

Like the Manosphere’s intent is to help women. 9_9

Grandparents who feel “put out” by watching their grandkids for free really annoy me. I can understand the need for boundaries and a give and take, but barring abuse, helping your children should be forever. Especially since most new parents need free childcare to successfully set their families up. Childcare often costs more than the mortgage, I can’t wait to see how unaffordable it will be in 20 years.

So that was… something.

My mom divorced my dad about 12 years ago. She remarried 5 years ago. Between that time she had no shortage of dates with men. Young men, Older men, successful men. One man who was extremely wealthy dated her for several months. He didn’t want a long term commitment just wanted to go on dates with her and they had a great time. One other man proposed and she initially said yes, but broke it off because she realized that the strong feelings she had wasn’t going to compensate for how utterly incompatible they were.

Honestly, seeing friends in their 20s dating looks a lot more difficult than her dating experience in her 40s. I never dated because I married my first boyfriend, which luckily enough turned out just fine :).

My mom and I are really close so talking about her dates was something that was natural for us.

I don’t think it ever occurs to these redpillers that maybe they have some ludicrously picky ideas themselves. They all seem to want a woman who is supermodel-looking, extremely subservient and submissive, pornstar-in-the-sack, willing to pop out babies on command, yet has no influence on their upbringing (lest she turn them against Dad). Additionally, she should have no independent ideas or thoughts of her own, no interest in or interaction with any other men (because hypergamy!), no strong ties to her own family, no personal ambition or goals outside of babies, staying hot and sexually pleasing her man, etc, etc…

And yet they strenuously believe women are the picky ones. Riiiiiiiiight.

Eh, on one hand, Italian. On the other my most recent ex’s grandmother dumped her firstborn on her parents. So there’s probably a happy medium there? Like, my grandparents were fine watching us but it was a scheduled sort of thing, not “here’s your grandkid(s), I’m going out, bye!” — even my grandparents would’ve WTFed at that.

I’ve read that there are a growing number of Russian women who simply don’t want to settle down with Russian men and so have chosen to either stay single or date foreigners.

Apart from the dating foreigners part, I’ve read that the hostile sexism of Japanese society generally is as good an explanation as any for the general reluctance of young Japanese women to marry and/or have children.

I feel like grandparents should help out… but it should be on their terms. Dumping the kids on them because childcare is expensive seems pretty exploitative to me.

Why do people expect childcare to be cheap? :/

This gets to me every time some nice progressive-minded person posts some facebook info-graphic going “OMG, I can’t believe daycare is more expensive than college tuition these days!” No shit! Of course it is! When was it not?! Even the most sheltered college freshman can wipe her own bum, nuke her own ramen, and generally even remember to look both ways before crossing the street. You can have 100 of them to each instructor. If one of them chokes on a random shiny object or glugs down a vat of solvent, it’s not the school’s fault. If one of them wanders out of a lecture hall on a fine Tuesday for no apparent reason and is never seen or heard from again, it’s also not the school’s fault.

Why do people think herding a bunch of anarchic under-5s should be dirt-cheap and the extended fam should fall all over themselves to do it in their spare time?! aaaahhhhh

“I mean, the sound wasn’t great, but it was still better.”
Well, birdemic did set the bar pretty low, what with the sound dropping out in one of the first scenes.
On the plus side this thing wasn’t as long as birdemic… and while the bar scene was weird, it wasn’t as weird as a completely empty restaurant with a guy singing a song about hangin’ out with the family.

I was sort of expecting narration/voice over with the end scene of the mra service announcement. “Every year, hundreds of spinsters suffer severely lonely lives…. you don’t have to suffer their fate…. something something give guys a chance… something something don’t die alone, eaten by your cats.”
I agree that poorly animated, highly explosive birds would improve this and other videos.

Recent remarks on spinsterhood are enlightening, but none touches on the truth — that the modern woman is a spinster mostly by choice. Her status is envied by her married sisters, particularly when the newly-wed wife is expected to continue wage-earning to help support her husband.

I also think it never occurs to these redpillers that maybe they aren’t relationship material. Or that they don’t *have* to be in a relationship/marriage, for that matter. Not everyone is suited to relationships (despite our inherited cultural baggage about families, partnering, etc) and many people just don’t cope with the inherent give-and-take involved. I get the impression some of these red pill types have realised relationships are not for them, but have come to this conclusion for the wrong reasons (blaming women, rather than taking honest stock of their own wants, issues and shortcomings). I also think the amount of effort involved in maintaining a relationship is well beyond what any of these redpillers/MRAs/PUAs is actually willing to put in. They just expect a marriage to happen, and last till death, without any actual work.

The corollary piece would be a short film entitled “I Could Have Done Better,” in which a young woman says “Yes” to the first dude who asks, then jump-cut forward 40 years and he’s a bald unpleasant Willy Loman character who hits on his grandson’s girlfriend and is only there to borrow money from his adult kids for another get-rich-quick scheme, but in the end credit sequence we see him take the money into a casino and put it all on the Pass Line at Craps, ending with him stealing a tip from a passing waitress’ tray.

Indeed. My wife made the huge mistake of saying yes to her first husband’s proposal because even thought she wasn’t at all sure whether the relationship really had a future she’d bought into the delusion that marriage would somehow magically strengthen it.

Fortunately, there were no kids so she was able to leave him relatively easily eighteen months later (by which time it was obvious to everyone but him that things weren’t working), and the even happier ending is that both ended up meeting and marrying far more compatible people and starting families with them.

In other words, yes you probably can do better. Although “better” doesn’t necessarily mean “a superior human being all round”, it can simply mean “someone more compatible”. It’s hard to judge given that the acting was so horrific, but the total lack of chemistry between the woman in the video and her various suitors spoke volumes in itself.

Disclosure: Did not watch the video, because eurgh.

I’ve heard this whole warning about having too-high standards, so you completely miss the perfectly nice dude who would totally make your entire life happy, for as long as I can remember. From the number of warnings I’ve heard about it, you’d think this was epidemic among young women.

The number of women I’ve actually witnessed doing it, though? Zero. Not a blessed one.

I mean, I’ve never heard anyone go, “Well, this guy really gets me. He’s smart, funny, and pretty much has his act together when it comes to knowing How To Adult. We enjoy each other’s company and have compatible values. Buuuuut…. what if there’s one out there JUST LIKE HIM but with WASHBOARD ABS, too? I’d better not tie myself down yet!”

If you like somebody—really, really like somebody—you’re too busy counting your lucky stars to be with them to ponder if there’s a hypothetical better person out there. If you find yourself thinking, “I can do better”, it’s almost certainly because something in the relationship is making you unhappy. That might be on you, that might be on them, that might just be on the fact that dating can be super awkward and not work sometimes. But it’s probably a good sign that no, you should definitely not sign a lifelong commitment with that person.

And, conversely, when you do meet the right person, there’s every likelihood that you won’t be 100% compatible if you work things out via a mental box-ticking system.

My wife cheerfully admitted that she lied about her various cultural interests when first dating me because she thought that this might be a deal-breaker – and I think she might have been right, were it not for the fact that we got on so well on a basic chemistry level that it rapidly became obvious that it didn’t matter that we weren’t into the same books, music, films or what have you.

Come to think of it, we still aren’t to this day – but I actually think that it’s good for our kids in the long term that her interests are mainly medical and scientific and that mine are mainly cultural – it means they’re getting a nice wide range of influences and examples to help them follow their own path. And it’s not as though we don’t have plenty of other friends with which to share our own individual interests.

We do, however, have a virtually identical sense of humour. Now that really would have been a deal-breaker.

My wife cheerfully admitted that she lied about her various cultural interests when first dating me because she thought that this might be a deal-breaker –

I like the way my husband and I did it.
On our third date (when it felt like things had the potential to get very serious, very quickly), we spontaneously turned a visit to a quirky diner into a “here’s all the things that significant others have hated about me and that you nigjt find to be deal breakers” session.

“I’m pretty much a woman. I mean, my inner woman is very strong – she also happens to be a lesbian yelling, ‘I LOVE VAGINAS!’ – but I’m sensitive, don’t like sports, love foreign film, and sulk if I don’t get cuddles.”

“I’m really masculine! Well, that’s what Imve been told. I’d much rather spend Friday night playing videogames and eating pizza than going out…so, I guess if I’m a man, I’m a 13-year-old geek.”

“I hate going out! Not hate-hate, but I light to go out about once or twice a month, tops. I’m a homebody.”

“And I’m a mess! I don’t mean to be – I always mean to pick up, and *can* if I find a way to distract or slap around my ADHD long enough – but it’s boring and I get distracted.”

“I am the worst gift giver. I think that I’ve picked out something good, but it’s usually awful.”

We laughed and talked and disclosed with extensive anecdotes for hours. The waitress had to kick us out at closing.

It’s not for everyone, but it was grand for us.

My sister does this. More specifically she refuses to “settle” for a “chubby chaser,” which is to say that if a man finds her attractive at all she assumes he’s fetishizing her and will cut him off. She is holding out for a guy who will not be attracted to her body at all but will be so overwhelmed by her brain that he loves her.

She is however the only person I’ve ever encountered who did this.

I’m with you on there.
It’s so inconsiderate to just dump yor kids on your parents/in-laws – children can be wonderful little ewoks, but they can also be exhausting.
Back when I was an undergrad (the first time), a childless professor of mine watched her godkids for a long weekend.
“I’m in my mid-40s, and I’ve literally ever sat down and mindless watched TV…but I did every night as soon as they were in bed. It’s not that I had no energy, I had no attention. They used up all of my attention.”

Grandparents, even those who love their grandkids specifically and children in general to pieces, have done their “time”.

I actually have a dream/plan: To add to our house/convert some spaces as time and money allows to make room for my Mom once she gets a bit older – not so she can be a back-up babysitter, but so she can spend her old age not having to worry about property taxes and bills and can focus her time and money on doing whatever the hell she wants (and, since we’re in the US, on healthcare *I Love Lucy Ewww face*).

Want to putter around in the garden?
Right there, no pressure to produce.
Want to take art classes?
Right down the street.
In the mood for yoga? Swim therapy? A walk around a public park?
Right this way.
Don’t feel like cooking?
You’re welcome to our meals.
don’t want to see us?
We won’t bug you (my plan is to either make a semi-isolated and well sound-insulated area with a kitchenette and desperate entrance or construct/set up a detached structure, depending on what funds and the county allow).

Have you ever lived in Japan for any period of time?

I haven’t. But a cousin has been teaching undergrads in a Japanese university for the last 20ish years. He’s no feminist. (He’s one of those freeze peach, I can say what I like, types.) But his views on ordinary or popular Japanese culture and behaviour are much the same as mine.
