Another crisis in the Ask the Red Pill subreddit.
Seems one Red Pill Alpha male has gotten the job of his dreams. And it’s worrying him to death.
You wouldn’t believe me if I told you that I finally managed to land a job working with children. Now, as a guy who’s 6’3” tall and jacked you’d be thinking this guy doesn’t even fit the stereotype. Yes, I agree with you cause most women would entertain a job like that. However, I actually enjoy working with children and I see it as a way of ‘passing the torch’ and I could do so by not submitting to a monogamous relationship.
Also, he adds, he is getting a masters in “this type of field,” which I presume is something like child development; ultimately, he hopes to get a job “working with children who are neurotypicals [or] who have learning disabilities such as adhd, dyslexia and so on.”
There’s just one little problem. He’s spent the past year or so training himself to be an “assertive and blunt” alpha male and, well, this doesn’t go down so well at his job:
[S]ince I’m working with children there is this change from being assertive and blunt in my personal life to this caring and validating figure with children. I tend to associate the latter with feminine qualities.
[T]he philosophy of the workforce I’m in heavily encourages traits of empathy and understanding, which I can totally understand because it is a mental health clinic. … My identity is quite volatile at the moment, especially since I just recently landed this job and have to figure out how much I can transfer of what I learnt in red pill to the workplace environment.
Just don’t try negging the children, dude.
In fact, why not leave all your Red Pill “education” at the door. Even better, leave it in the garbage, where it belongs, and focus on being a sincere, decent person not only with the children you work with but with the adults you meet at work and in the outside world as well.
That, of course, is not the advice he gets from the Red Pill squad. One commenter tells him to go ahead and smoke the empathy — just don’t inhale it.
“Don’t go too deep emotionally if you don’t want to, keep a distance,” writes helpmeverymuchthanks. “Also, note the 38th law of the 48 laws of power, Think as You Like, but Behave Like Others. Hope it gives you some insight.”
I guess fake empathy is the only kind of empathy allowed in the Red Pill world. What a healthy philosophy on which to base your life.
