This “Ask the Red Pill” question might just turn your stomach

As I noted not long ago, the Ask The Red Pill subreddit has locked itself down and moved to a new non-Reddit address. But the old posts are all still there, and this little blast from 11 days in the past is pretty much guaranteed to creep you out. Even if you have to read it twice before it starts to make sense.

Reddit has some absolutely awful takes on Bill Cosby’s release from prison

Reddit is one of the world’s biggest repositories of terrible wrong crap. So I thought I’d take a little look to see what people in Reddit’s wrongest subreddits had to say about Bill Cosby’s release from prison on a technicality.

The Red Pill subreddits have packed up their considerable baggage and left Reddit, hopefully for good

The Red Pill’s exodus was a little less dramatic

Last night, I sent my browser to a familiar place — the often comical Ask The Red Pill subreddit — only to discover a ghost town. The threads had been locked down — no more replies possible — and a note stickied to the top of the page reported that “We have moved to Forums.Red – Posting here is locked.” Clicking on the link sends you to the new location, which at the moment seems as much of a ghost town as the original.

Over in the Men Going Their Own Way subreddit, an excitable fellow by the name of ClutchNes is giving a little pep talk to his peers.

Red pilled Redditor shaken to his core by existence of attractive 36-year-old woman

Typical 36-year-old woman, according to Red Pillers

There’s an old saying that Red Pillers have made their own: “Men age like fine wine; woman age like milk.” Red Pill lore states that women are at their peak attractiveness in their teens and early twenties, after which they “hit the wall” at age 30 or so and rapidly lose their looks, ultimately becoming attractive only to the most desperate of men.

#metoo rape reddit sexual abuse

Marilyn Manson fans react to Evan Rachel Wood’s abuse allegations and most of them are surprisingly reasonable about the whole thing

Actress Evan Rachel Wood has been speaking out for years about the abuse she says she endured at the hands of one of her exes. Today, in an Instagram post, she dropped his name, and for most of those familiar with her story, it didn’t come as a big surprise:

Chad tech guru blames Reddit incels for sending GameStop’s stock to the moon

This marketing professor will beat up your marketing professor

So you’ve heard about the whole GameStop thing, right? The denizens of a stock trading subreddit have collectively levitated the stock price of troubled game retailer GameStop up roughly a kajillion percent since last fall, screwing over several hedge funds that were betting on the company’s stock going down the toilet. (You can get all the gory details of what’s going on here.)

“Is there a point in hanging out with plates if you are not going to smash them?” and other crockery-related queries from the Ask the Red Pill subreddit

Red Piller spinning a plate

Of all the ridiculous bits of red pill jargon that litter the conversations wherever red pillers gather to talk, probably the most ridiculous is the term “plate” — used to mean a woman you’re regularly fucking in some sort of Friends With Benefits kind of way.

Former incel: “Developing empathy got me out of the incel rabbit hole”

Deanna Troi would be proud

“IncelExit” is a small subreddit devoted to helping those who’ve fallen into the incel rabbit hole and who are looking for “support and help with a pathway out.” It brings together “normies” who want to help with incels actually willing to listen to advice — a rarity in most incel communities, where every proposed solution is denounced as a “cope” or worse.

It’s “cruel” to tell fat women they’re beautiful, MGTOWs agree

For some strange reason, hateful people spend a great deal of their time explaining to people that they’re not hateful, really, just misunderstood. Literal Klan members will swear up and down that they’re not racist; misogynists insist they don’t really hate women. And those who hate fat people will try to pretend that they’re just worried about said fat people’s health.
