    In this nanoessay I describe my own journey through the Red Pill Addiction. Generally, being Red Pilled means understanding information which has been censored by the EAP (abbreviation for Mainstream Media). This information has many aspects relating to life and Politics.

    With respect to Gender Issues in particular, Red Pilling means understanding that men experience a lot of discrimination in Modern Western World. Given that some of the readers are not familiar with issues which men face, I list five main issues below. 1) Men are discriminated in Divorce and in Family Courts. 2) Male offenders are convicted on much less evidence, and on average get 63\% longer sentences for the same crime based on their gender. 3) Male victims of Domestic Violence are more likely to be arrested rather then helped. 4) Men accused of Sexual Misconduct are presumed guilty. 5) The worst issue faced by men is that many Feminists and Liberals view men as the Class of Oppressors.

    For some men, the very process of Red Pilling can be very traumatic. For instance, a man being abused by his wife and treated as the Primary Aggressor by the Law would likely be Red Pilled in a very harsh and abrupt manner. Fortunately, my Red Pilling happened on a purely intellectual level when I read "The Myth of Male Power" by Warren Farrell in 1996. At that time the situation was better in some ways (no Presumption of Guilt) and worse in others (even less recognition of male DV victims, worse divorce and custody discrimination).

    Many men who are Red Pilled experience significant stress. Some experience Anger and Sadness for some time. Generally this stage lasts a few months. Red Pilled men experience some Social Isolation as they can only share their views with close friends. Most Red Pilled men do have a dating life and many are married. Male Separatists are a small minority of Red Pilled men. About 15% of those in Red Pill communities are women -- their contribution and help restores our faith in Humankind.

    Among Aspies there are four times more men then women. Most people with Moderate Autism (Aspies) experience life events much harder then Normal people (Normies). A Normie may be fascinated by train engines, but an Aspie may develop a fascination with train engines and think about it most of the time. A Normie can like video games and play them a few hours a week. An Aspie may be capable of playing video games 14 hours a day. Even Normies can get addicted to drugs, alcohol, and smoking. My therapist absolutely forbade me to drink or smoke -- addiction is an order of magnitude worse for an Aspie then for a Normie. Even Normies can develop self-harming habits. Aspies develop them much more frequently.

    A typical Normie man who is Red Pilled would be sad for some time. He would then adjust his life in order to minimize the dangers faced by Blue Pill men. Most of his time he will continue living a normal life. A Red Pilled Normie man would be somewhat offended/insulted by male-bashing and Misandry. But that would not occupy much of his time in everyday life. He would try to avoid misandrist people, websites, and Social Media accounts.

    An Aspie can suffer more from being Red Pilled. Thinking about unpleasant subjects such as Misandry is much more stressful then thinking about something neutral like train engines or video games. For many years, reading Misandrist tweets and Reddit posts has been my hobby. Before that I read their blogs. Sometimes I do argue with them, which has cost me about 8 Twitter accounts.

    To a great degree, my addiction has caused me a lot of unnecessary suffering. I have learned new information and written many nanoessays on the subject. Possibly Red Pilled some people, which is a small positive contribution for Society. Nevertheless, many YouTube and Twitter influencers have Red Pilled many more people with much less effort. My productivity in relation to wasted time may be about 3%.

    For many years I have tried to quit my interest by developing another Autistic Interest. I did play Runescape a lot -- I am level 120 Farmer, level 120 Inventor, level 111 Slayer, level 109 Mage, level 108 Ranger, level 101 Summoner, level 92 Thief. But even that game can get boring. I tried other games like MegaGlest. In this game you command the whole armies. Just as in Runescape, different kinds of human and non-human magicians are the most interesting units. I read and study Russian History a lot.

    In conclusion, Red Pill can be useful both for individuals and for Society. Nevertheless, like everything else, learning new information can have unintended results such as negativity and addiction.

    What happens to Johnny Depp awoken many many young men.

    I found some red pill channels interesting as men shared their story of abuse and how they have dealed with it.
    Some I think are just full of rage, that I can understand but would bring negativity to your life. From what I listened, I realized that many men got neither positive both female and male role models.

    Globally I think that the red pill can represent the same danger than the rest of internet political opinions : you can enclose yourself in a bubble of opinion who always go in your direction.

    It will take decades for most men to become Red Pilled, but the process is on.

    Censorship of Social Media will slow down the process, but other channels of information will open.

    I have found that Red Pill has an unusual number of aspies for some reason, and I have also seen the same among incels. We just tend to be attracted to these pseudoscientific theories that paint us as the victim. Maybe people with aspergers have severe social challenges especially with the opposite sex which can lead up to developing a very negative view of women. We also tend to be extremely intellectual and will come up with complex rationalizations for our problems. I suggest that people on the spectrum who are struggling in dating and relationships find options for couseling and therapy rather than seeking out psudoscience on the internet.

    Red Pill is right that women aren't completely fair and good, and women can do bad things and make bad choices. Men are often faced with struggles that are unique to us. But many red pill people are developing this dark view of society simply from the fact that they lack the communications skills to find a partner. Many others were in relationships but had a really bad experience.

    Now it is true that some women are awful, but many more aren't awful. I am married and my marriage has had its share of problems but many of those problems come from my faults as well as my wife's. Married life is much better than being single all the time in my opinion.

    Just start journaling instead, it is much more beneficial and much more real. Many men of today have overdosed on red pills and blame their problems on external facorts out of their control which just makes things worse.

    The Manosphere is big time cringe.

    Best luck to you!

    I guess I have much more severe autism. I am at the edge of High Functioning Autistic spectrum. Those who are more autistic then me can not compose a sentence.

    Sadly in USA, men suffer severe discrimination and are viewed as the class of oppressors by most Leftists.

    In Sweden that is not the case.

    Yes, I was very very lucky to have a more mild version of autism. My advise to you is to lower the expectations you have for yourself when it comes to relationships and enjoy the life you have. Your top priority should be to have a job where you can support yourself and take advantage of any benefits you can. I'd also advise reading up on social skills a bit every day, just so you are more aware, and helps smooth out your rougher edges a little bit.

    I can assure you that red pill is complete pseudoscience and is completely wrong. There are actually some good books on doing well in a relationships and managing conflicts that are written by actual experts like John Gottman. A good link to understand the problems of red pill is: https://www.reddit.com/r/exredpill/

    By Red Pill I do not mean any PUA or relationship stuff. I mean political situation and awareness of discrimination faced by men.

    Fortunately I have moderate, rather then severe autism. Those with severe autism can not write essays.

    Its very true that men have their problems, but these problems are exaggerated by red pill people, and they underestimate the problems women face. They will also cherry pick these extreme examples and generalize that to everyone. And this country is facing much larger problems than child custody. Here is a good video that gives a healthy critique of red pill positions and I found it very entertaining to watch.

    I have seen people with severe autism and you are right that they really aren't writing anything. However even with moderate autism, that is going to make having a normal life very difficult and almost impossible for some. Even many people with high functioning autism fail to get into long term relationships or hold down a nice job. In fact I got lucky in both those respects, and I could have easily ended up in a very different situation.

    We can agree to disagree.

    A male victim of DV who is treated as a perpetrator based on his gender is indeed a victim of Oppression.

    Every day one can see that extreme hatred of men is acceptable in Mainstream Society:

    [​IMG]
    Sadly, in Day and Age when men as a class are seen as oppressors, even genocidal rhetoric directed at men seems OK.

    Before my Reddit accounts were deleted, my standard response was that The World would have been a better place if people who defend #killallmen had a mother like Casey Anthony.

    I was the one banned.

    I think you are cherry picking the worst cases here. Very few women believe in killing all men. If you don't like crazy feminist types, don't hang out with them.

    I was diagnosed with ADD in the third grade, I was an awkward and lonely kid, always considered odd. Many still do to this day. Dont let it define you, just be who you are, not defined by a diagnoses. You are more than that, Sir.

    Thank you.

    Moderate Autistic also can not pay attention to anything other then his/her Autistic Interest.

    I agree 100%. But many women and some men

    1) like insulting men
    2) support discrimination against men
    3) view men as oppressors

    I am grateful to everyone who views men as innately innocent and worthy humans -- just like women.

    Insulting them is fun. It helps me feel less depressed. Caroline Flack is my favorite misandrist.

    Hey, I certainly agree that making fun of crazy feminists is fun. But its important not to lump in more reasonable feminists with the big reds of the world. America has many different types of people with insane beliefs on both the left and right. Its actually frustrating for me to deal with these people too much.

    I agree 100%. I support Gender Equality.

    But anyone who views men as innately guilty and worthy of abuse is The Enemy.

    But I kind of enjoy having crazy people around. Life would be a lot more boring if we didn't have crazy feminists or flat earthers to laugh at.

    It is actually very sad and hurt that very many women and even many men view men as

    1) Innately guilty of "patriarchy" and for the faults of other men
    2) Are worthy of abuse
    3) Are unworthy of empathy

    "Kill all men" is not a serious call for genocide. But it is a serious expression of contempt for male gender and belief that all men possess enormous innate guilt and thus all men must take abuse without complaining.

    Another example of misandrist thinking:

    [​IMG]

    It's a tragedy they did not have a mother like Casey Anthony -- they would have learned that women are also capable of abuse.

    When you say "red pill" are you referring to MGTOW? "Red Pill" seems kind of vague and covers a lot of issues but it seems you mostly have an issue with women.

    No. I am not a MGTOW. There are many currents within Manosphere.

    I am an Egalitarian.
