Red Pill TheoryThe Only Real Reason for School Shootings (self.TheRedPill)

submitted by Modredpillschool

You know we see this tired argument trotted out time and time again, each time bringing us no closer to an answer on school shootings.

It's the guns that are at fault! No, mental illness! Clearly parenting is at fault! No, it's video games! Surely something can and should be done!

Of course the problem will never truly be addressed because the nature of our fem-centric society forbids looking behind the curtain and makes the general populace completely blind to the nature of the shootings. To make it worse, the common thread is right there for you to pull but it's all-but-invisible unless you shed your blue-pill conditioning.

It's always curious to me when society as a whole throws up its hands and declares they do not know what causes senseless crimes such as these and pretends there are no common factors or identifiers that can be seen. It's similar to Scott Adam's analogy, that we're watching two different movies on the same screen. They see random acts of violence that have no cause, no trigger, and therefore no way to stop it other than removing freedoms from all citizens, lest any one of us suddenly become as randomly angry as the last guy was. Watching the conversation unfold, it's as though the gun control nuts themselves aren't sure if they might become a school shooter, so the safe bet is to get rid of all guns!

But I digress, this is not a topic about gun control or medicating children. This is about the REAL cause of school shootings.

There is a common identifier that may clue you in to the nature of school shootings. And it's not hard to see. It is done entirely by male students who have been ostracized and have no sense of belonging... and they don't have girlfriends. They are, by all accounts losers.

It should be painfully obvious to anybody here what's happening but I'll spell it out.

Men only go to extremes like this when they are exceptionally desperate. It's the reason why young sexless virgins are easily recruited into terrorist organizations with promises of sex with virgins when they die. It's the reason why you don't see Chad from the football team that gets his knob slobbered on by a different cheerleader each night stocking up on guns to teach other students a lesson.

Why are these boys so upset?

Factor number one is probably poor social skills, perhaps no father figure to teach them. Couple that with some level of autism or physical malady, or maybe just an ugly face. They get shunned by the popular kids and girls, forever hopeless and forever alone.

Of course at that age you don't exactly have a roadmap to direct you where to go. Many of us relied on fathers to explain to us what matters in life and how to navigate social hurdles. But in today's culture of unbridled hypergamy, there are record amounts of public and direct hatred and lack of sympathy for male losers. It's not that women fail to understand the male plight, it's that they openly mock it. Meanwhile mainstream media does its best to delegitimize the actual issues these boys face.

Elliot Rodger comes to mind when looking at the full picture. A sexless autistic kid desperate for female attention but with zero understanding and know-how to make it a reality. So angry he was that the Disney fairytale of "be a nice guy" didn't work that he lamented both the popular kids as well as pick up artists who claim to have the secret, as neither fit into his narrow world-view. Of course, when the evidence doesn't match your belief, some might consider re-examining their beliefs. But you throw in a case of autism, raging hormones, and lack of father figures and you might just have a ticking time bomb on your hands instead.

Gunning to ignore the male plight, the mainstream news painted him as a red-pill misogynist, reporting that he murdered girls because he hated them so much. Of course, the news downplayed the fact that he killed more men than women, or that he did so because of jealousy and rage that they should be so lucky to experience female validation that he so desperately craved. No, this was simply misogyny at play, nothing more, nothing less. No mention that he hated pickup and red pill. He was a member at PUAHate, a site dedicated to disagreeing with us.

The collective response was "no wonder women didn't like him, what a loser!" This was the country, banding together under the banner of the fempire, sticking out their collective tongues and doubling down on their open disgust of males and their stupid vulnerabilities and needs. A response so tone deaf that I'm surprised some women didn't simply load his weapons for him.

Now, at TRP we preach personal responsibility, and I'm absolutely not saying these boys are not at fault for what they do. I'm a strong believer in personal responsibility. But that doesn't mean you can't identify trends. And a trend school shootings have become.

Do mental illnesses play into the outcomes? For sure they do. But you don't see every emotionally disturbed teen shooting up a school. You don't see teens with girlfriends doing so either.

The real reason for school shootings is because boys have been raised as the enemy by a society that hates maleness. These boys never learn how to become men from role models that don't exist, and fathers who have either given up or have legally been told to stay away.

And I don't see this trend of extremism changing until our culture changes its attitude towards men and boys. But the femtrain is a strong force and I don't see it slowing down, so I won't hold my breath. But if anybody wants the real reason to the meaningless murders, you don't have to look any further.

As for prevention, here's an idea- an inoculation against school shootings if you will. Get the cheerleading team together and simply give blowjobs to the losers in your class. Do it once a year, and finally once again at graduation. Though I jest in suggesting this, I would put my life savings on a prediction that student bodies that participated in this would have a 0% school shooting rate. As impossible as this sort of policy would be, it would completely solve the question that all those experts haven't been able to answer.

And it should shed some light on the male condition. Even a blowjob from somebody who barely tolerates your existence, and the promise of a future one would be enough to change the mind of a would-be mass murderer. Hell, downgrade blow job to simply hand holding and I bet you'd get similar results. Fuck- a phone call now and again would probably be it for 90% of these guys.

Hell, a guy in the desert would drink piss.

[–]Trvspkt 72 points73 points  (4 children)

This problem literally stems from the media and a lack of critical thinking skills. I’ve said it once I’ll say it again. Social media will be the downfall of a functional society. Everyone has a voice even the retards. Couple that with people who want instant gratification (porn, retweets, likes, shares) and the next thing you know bullshit faggotry is being spread like wildfire. It’s a disease and the only way to use it is by being aware of what it does.

A lack of self control, respect, and critical thinking is plaguing our society. It’s really what’s turned me on to TRP. People are just so fucking stupid now and days. TRP is mostly about bettering yourself, fuck the other noise around us. Play the game but be aware it’s a game. It’s only gonna get worse.

[–]zombi-roboto 11 points12 points  (3 children)

I am firmly of the opinion that, as you mention, critical thinking skills is the answer.

[–]BobBaratheonsBastard 1 point2 points  (2 children)

My question is how can we objectively teach critical thinking? You can’t just say question everything bc then you get idiots who think the earth is flat. Over my whole life I’ve learned to just recognize something that sounds like bullshit and investigate. But how can you teach that without having people who just question everything they disagree with? It fucks my mind just trying to explain critical thinking so idk.

[–]zombi-roboto 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It sounds like you are actually describing two different things:

  • question everything, but
  • don't make any assumptions.

Critical thinking is not the same thing as simply disagreeing with a random idea and the coming up with some other random, unsubstantiable explanation.

[–]p_and_q 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm a strong believer that History courses should be used to teach critical thinking skills. Too much of History courses is learning the who, what, and where. Learning history is supposed to be about learning cause and effect. Not just about what happened, but why it happened. How do we keep getting into situations and what we can do to get out of them. How to examine situations from multiple angles. How seeing through the side of the opposition, gives us tools to avoid creating that opposition.

Or Timmy's dad is gone, and mom is absent

Timmy gets bullied

None of the girls at school like Timmy

Timmy isn't good at sports

Timmy has no talents

Timmy has little-to-no friends

Timmy has no future

Timmy is mad at the world

Timmy is frustrated because he's not "normal"

Timmy sees the news glorifying shooters

Timmy sees a chance to be something

People will remember Timmy's name

The girls will remember Timmy

The bullies will be sorry they messed with Timmy

The "normal" kids will finally notice Timmy

Timmy has a gun

Timmy can at least point and shoot

Timmy has a chance to be remembered

This is the most on point shit I have read about this. It really is, when you break it down, that simple.

[–]CutLiver 13 points14 points  (1 child)

Maybe it is that simple, maybe not. It's hard to say what goes into the mindset that would drive somebody to do these things. I know the common sentiment is that these kids are monsters or mentally ill, but the way I see it is, it's really fucking sad that kids get to the point where shooting up a school is even on their mind. I feel bad for the victims, but also I have to wonder what happened in this kids life that drove him to do it. Most people they've interviewed said they weren't surprised he was the shooter... I can't imagine what it must've been like for him to have that perception from other students. It had to be tough. Maybe it was a case of self-fulfilling prophecy.

[–]Wel108 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Like most others have expressed. I tend to agree it has to do with a collapse of family values. Lack of being present in their lives. Etc etc

[–][deleted] 781 points782 points  (132 children)

School shootings is just another symptom of an underlying disease, which is the existential crisis that's plaguing the Western world. Men and women are repressed in someway or another, and don't have the self love to break through it. The media's always going on about guns are the issue and "the government's not doing enough", or whatever. They never talk about why, and until now pretty much mass shooter has killed themselves in the act.

I remember in Bowling for Columbine, Michael Moore asks Marilyn Manson what he'd say to the shooters, and in response he said, "I wouldn't say anything, I'd listen to what they have to say, and that's what no one did." These young men are directionless, and have no support. Maybe for all you redpillers still in High School, reach out to these kids and help them find a direction.

[–]liizzsar 379 points380 points  (104 children)

That's actually great advice!

[–]RatioRegnum 242 points243 points  (97 children)

School shootings are not a Western problem, they are an American problem.

Canada is the nation most culturally similar to the US, but the US lost more kids to school shootings in the first six weeks of 2018 than Canada has in the last hundred years. Australia, another English-heritage wild-frontier nation, has lost 3 children to school shootings, ever, since HMS Supply sailed into Botany bay.

Let that sink in.

This is not because either has restrictive gun policies. I know a Canadian with basement full of assault rifles and a functional .30 cal machinegun. Australia got more restrictive after the '96 (non school) mass shooting, but its straightforward to buy a gun if you want one.

Guns are part of the problem (no guns=no shooting, QED), but they are not the problem.

Reaching out to young men having trouble is part of the solution though. Upvote.

[–]CursingWhileNursing 51 points52 points  (3 children)

There was at least one case here in Germany. And it was a blessing for the mainstream media that he apparently had played Counter Strike at some point before the shooting. It lead to a big, stupid, hypocritical and utterly misinformed discussion that actually made me angry. "Killer games" was the term the german media coined.

No one ever mentioned that he got expelled from school for some minor disbehaviour only weeks before the tests for A level, that he was given no chance to at least repeat the year, that he wanted to study and now had no gratuation at all and thus, faced a life as labourer, since here in Germany you can't even make a vocational training without some form of graduation (which I generally see as a good thing, I have to add).

Nooo, him freaking out could not have something to do with this, absolutely impossible. It was the killer games, we need to ban those! Why should a young man who just got utterly robbed of his future for some minor misbehaviour freak out because of this, it's what is happening to hundrets of young men every year and do they shoot up schools? No? See...

Edit: Just checked, because I wanted to be sure to tell no BS. Apparently he stayed away from school for a couple of days and then forged a doctor's certificate, which was soon discovered. Surely stupid and not necessary, but in my opinion far from being the reason to utterly ruin the life of a young man.

Usually when you drop out of school during A levels (classes 11 - 12 /13, depending on the federal state), you get at least the certificate for the O-level, which still enables you to learn a profession and even go to university later as a lateral entrant. Not so in his federal state, so he literally had nothing. This brutal expulsion was utterly illegitimate, there is not a single law that justified this. My guess would be that the female headmistress was on a power trip.

A teacher talked to the killer, managed to guide him into an empty room and lock him in. When he later talked about this in the media, he got massively attacked by the media and called a liar. Soon the police confirmed his story. The only thing the headmistress had to say to this was "Sometimes I wish that he would be a more quiet hero."

I think this says it all. The Erfurt School Massacre

[–]KaffeeKaethe 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I think they recognized that the fact he had no graduation contributed to the shooting. That is why they introduced the BLF (an exam after 10th grade), as a fallback if you fail the abiture afterwards

[–]CursingWhileNursing 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yes, in the end, they did. But all you could hear and read for quite some time after the shooting was "Counter Strike! Killergames! Video games made him do it! Ban video games!".

And later, when all those facts got revealed, you heard pretty much nothing about it from the media, let alone a public clarification or an apology. Fake news, hm...

[–][deleted] 32 points33 points  (38 children)

we have shootings too, they just dont get mainstream, last year la ronge saskatchewan had a school shooting killing a couple ppl and a teacher, no one other than saskatchewan ever heard about it tho, peob cuz the shooter wasnt white

[–]fanturnedon 1 points1 points [recovered]

peob cuz the shooter wasnt white

Yes. Must maintain the narrative that blacks are all innocent opressed angels. This is also why you never heard about the guy who shot and killed some psycho at a Minnesota mall who was stabbing people at random. We can't have people see that guns are for self defense. Must maintain the narrative that guns do nothing but hurt the innocent.

[–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (0 children)

it was a native, but they statistically commit nearly as bad as blacks crime wise

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (35 children)

Oh please the news discriminates against blacks way more than whites.

[–]fanturnedon 1 points1 points [recovered]

Bullshit. If the news actually portrayed the average black man as he is, it would be nothing but a 24 hour show on black crime. Blacks are literally responsible for over half the crime in the US yet they only account for 13% of the population. Sorry for the blacks who are not ghetto pieces of shit, I do not believe it is in your genes to be a ghetto piece of shit and I understand this is a socioeconomic issue and not a biological issue. In other words, this isn't me saying blacks are genetically predisposed to crime and therefore inferior. But I will not turn a blind eye to the reality of blacks in America.

[–]1Metalageddon 11 points12 points  (20 children)

I'm not even miffed. You're right.

It's why black lives matter hates me. I'm a poster boy for black success and I've always had... 'racist questions'... About their agenda and reasoning.

Funny enough, I used to volunteer at the big brother program. Did more help in a year than I've seen any single black lives matter person do in 5.

Can you imagine what would happen if people stopped pointing fingers and actually took responsibility? (Across races and class?)

We'd be in a goddamned golden age.

[–]GenieGenius 7 points8 points  (18 children)

It's because the government and society have oppressed black people for hundreds of years. Are you that ignorant of your own history as a black person?

How about we enslave, redline, and oppress white people while training them to act and work like cattle for 400 years and then shrug when they aren't successful as black people only 2 generations later? After all, they should just take personal responsibility and stop complaining, jeez.

Maybe quit being an idiot and learn doe history instead of being an agreeable Uncle Tom for the white man who is denigrating your entire race in the midst of people from his side of melanin spectrum gunning down schools, movie theaters, and churches every other week?

[–]1Metalageddon 6 points7 points  (7 children)

Oh here! This is what I'm talking about!

Right up there, that guy.

It's like an instant assumption that I don't know what happened, then personal attacks and allusions. It's whacky.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I can actually agree with u on that.

[–]GenieGenius 3 points4 points  (10 children)

You're an idiot if you think black people commit more crime than white people. Police are trained to target areas where black people live as a result of generations redlining and Jim Crow. If black kids are so terrible and violent why are most school shootings and domestic terror attacks carried out by the pure, innocent, loving little white children?

[–]fanturnedon 1 points1 points [recovered]

You are intellectually lazy. I would usually ignore such ignoramus, but I will take the time to respond since this is a self improvement forum after all and you clearly need some guidance.

Why do I say you are intellectually lazy? Because you just expressed emotions as facts, when they're nothing but opinions at most. You could not take the 10 minutes it would've taken you to confirm the bullshit you just spew is nothing but that. I applaud you for not taking my word at heart value. One should never do that, but it means nothing if you don't actually do the following research to confirm or deny the stated facts. Now go and research it for yourself and you will find that I did not pull numbers out my ass. Official FBI data shows year after year that blacks commit over half the total crime of the United States of America. Census shows that blacks account for 13% of the population and whites make up 77%. Let me guess, the FBI is racist?

As for your claim that it is always white kids shooting schools, that is also absolute bullshit. There have been, since 1982 to date, 55 mass shootings started by whites and 16 by blacks. But, yet again, blacks account only for 13% of the population. This means that blacks are more than twice as likely to start a mass shooting that whites.

[–]GenieGenius -3 points-2 points  (8 children)

You're an idiot. White people are the biggest terroristic threat in America next to jihadists. Compare 46 mass shooting by your white men vs 6 by our black men.

You cherry pick your little factoids to reassure yourself that white people can do no wrong and black people are violent animals in an era where a white man in Las Vegas guns down dozens of people from a hotel room window and another white man crashes his car into a crowd of people at a Nazi Rally because he disagrees with them within months of each other.

You need to learn the difference between commit and accuse. No social scientist seriously thinks that because cops target black people that they commit more crime. Most of the crimes black people are accused and convicted of are related to drugs, not violent crime, and white people use drugs at rates equal to and often higher than black people.

Just admit you're a racist idiot that cherry picks facts to put down black people. You focus on the 22% chance you'll be shot by a black mass shooter vs the 78% chance you'll be shot by a black mass shooter as if black people are worse, the mental gymnastics required for that conclusion is insane.

For instance, White men commit 75% of sexual assault, but would you think it's appropriate or fair to say that all White men must be violent rapists? Of course not, but that's exactly what your argument sounds like and it's hilariously stupid.

Restricting access to guns has been proven to work in other countries. Restricting access to drugs has never been proven to work. Addiction is different than wanting to own a gun. Come on guys, you're supposed to be a bastion of logic over emotion. But all I see from gun owners is head in the sand emotional crying.

functional .30 cal machinegun

Automatic guns are illegal. I've never seen one in the many gun shops I've been in. Do you know the process to even get a handgun? If you are not a 'collector' or a hunting guide that needs one for defense against bears, good luck getting a permit for them. Don't talk about issues you don't know.

[–]marlan_ 18 points19 points  (7 children)

You can get a restricted license very easily by saying its use is for target practice.

I have an AR15 and a pistol.

Its semi-auto of course. But anyone who thinks an automatic rifle is more deadly clearly has no idea about guns or "combat" (even if it's a school and nobody is armed)

[–]1Entropy-7 4 points5 points  (0 children)

The safe storage laws basically make it impossible to use a firearm for self or home defence. There was that firearms instructor who had his porch firebombed and after he retrieved a pistol and fired two warning shits into a tree to scare off the attackers the cops arrested him and he was prosecuted rigorously.

The other thing is that a lot if pistols are prohibited rather than just restricted. Loads like 5.7, .25 and .32 are considered military grade or "murderer grade" for lack of a better term.

And how many bullets are you legally allowed to have in you AR-15 magazine: 20, 30, 50?

[–]Random_throwaway_000 1 points1 points [recovered]

I'm interested then. I live 2 mins from a gun range and would love to get my restricted license (have non-restricted). Can I get a license JUST for target practice? What is the process like? (Background checks, wait time, references).

I stated automatic since OP said machine gun.

[–]marlan_ 3 points4 points  (4 children)

You apply the same way you do for unrestricted.

You need to take a restricted class (same as PAL). I'm not sure what the difference is between PAL and RPAL applications because I did both at the same time. But assuming you didn't need a photo guarantor and references for a PAL you'll need those for RPAL.

Process time is about 2 months iirc.

[–]AugustSprite 5 points6 points  (2 children)

I would say the big difference seems to be that holding a restricted license seems to give the police the right to inspect your home on demand.

[–]BurnoutRS 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I know a guy with a corrogated steel building filled with weapons. From fully automatic to semi automatic. He even has a couple rocket launchers. Anything that was owned before the laws passed was grandfathered in in Canada as somebody above me also stated. Just chiming in to add another confirmed Canadian with a weapons stockpile.

[–]1Entropy-7 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Collector permits are.grandfathered AFAIK. In Ontario, with a population of roughly 10 million there are about a dozen concealed carry permits issued.

[–]RatioRegnum 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Google "CFB Borden machine gun shoot". You'll see lots of Canadian civilians with belt fed weapons.

[–]ph0t0k 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Full auto are prohibited, but if your grandfathered in you can still own them and buy them if your license is 12-x. Check this out.

IIRC you can only shoot them at a certified range, and good luck getting the transfer permit to move it. Also, storage legislation is particularly gnarly.

"Europe" isn't a country, but some really bad shit has happened in countries on that continent when the population was unarmed.

[–]Im_no_imposter 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Not school shootings, Which is the topic at hand here. Even if you wish to delve into other "bad shit", there was significant less of it.

Let's take the EU for example. The fact that it is 28 countries just makes the US look even worse in comparison. Not one of them deal with school shootings.

[–]blue_27 3 points4 points  (1 child)

The EU is not a valid comparison to the United States. We are one nation, compared to over 2 dozen. There is no country to compare us to, either.

As far as "bad shit" ... I'll take school shootings over world wars in my backyard that kill over 60 million people. I'll also take them over Stalin killing an equal number of people after disarming the population, and the same goes for Mao in China. Even though that isn't the EU, those are 3 separate examples where an armed population would have made a significant difference; the lack of which resulted in the death of almost 200 million people. As in the entire population of Pakistan or Nigeria. There is "bad shit" going on in the country formally known as Burma. I guarantee you that shit like that could never happen in the United States of America.

[–]i_bent_my_wookiee 4 points5 points  (0 children)

don't forget the European Van of Peace and the illegal hunting knives so often used in crime. Or the grooming gangs that rape European children (that the adults are doing NOTHING about.)

But then they pop in here and try to pull this "we are morally superior to you" act. Fuck Europe and everyone that lives there. I gave two years of my life sitting a post at the Fulda gap. Do the germans appreciate it? Hell no, they don't. So many Americans gave their time and stood a post so the germans didn't have to, and I'm happy to say that is mostly over now. Defend yourself germany, I wont help you anymore.

[–]cjandstuff 0 points1 point  (6 children)

You've also got a very different culture. You don't glorify mass murder like American media does.
And of course, Americans have a right to bear arms, but not a right to healthcare.
Europeans have a right to healthcare, bit not to bear arms.
Weird world, ain't it?

[–]Im_no_imposter 2 points3 points  (5 children)

Look at Australia and New Zealand too. European culture leads us to having less guns, yes. We don't idolise firearms and therefore we have HEAVY restrictions on their selling and use. Blatant glorification of anything such as that would definitely get your channel taken off the air here.

As for rights, we don't have the right to bear arms because we don't want it. An Americanised idea of "freedom" is not worth the deaths of our innocent children on a monthly basis.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (3 children)

We don’t have freedom because we don’t want it

Americanised version of freedom

Only those living within your little bubble would agree. The amount of mental gymnastics you partake in to justify it is hilarious. American politics is retardedly extreme on both sides and given that your mindset is representative of the majority of Americans it's easy to see why your society is so volitile.

America is a violent society. I'm not American, btw, I just find the whole Western European "I'm a proud cuck" political culture beyond contemptible.

But we are talking proportionately. The homicide rate in Canada is a third of the USA's and handgun homicides are 0.03% as likely so even multiplying by 10 times leaves a huge gap.

I suspect the number and overall body count from Canadian school shootings is less. Than a tenth of the American tally.

Plus, the feminists turned the Montreal Massacre into an annual day of mourning misandry where they tell guys how evil they are.

[–]allrandomworldnews 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You only end up with less shootings if you make the weapons harder to aquire. It just takes more dedication that way and people that dedicated may as well just blow up the place instead after building their own explosives.

Your suggestion is fighting symptoms instead of the root of the problem. Which most likely lessens the symptom but does not fix the problem ever.

[–]Nofap_Dutch 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Yep, already prevented one school shooting from a friend in a province far north (Groningen, the Netherlands). These people just need guidance, a father figure and the knowledge/wisdom that can be learned here on TRP

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I'd say that's horrible advice. You don't want to be associated with these people. You aren't a professional and even if you were there is not any real way to ensure the threat is neutralized or the person is helped.

Be nice to them privately, but in a public setting to gain rapport and avoid being shot or targeted other ways. You don't want them latching on to you.

Report them if you think you need to in a way that they won't know its you.

[–]mrnaizguy 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I try to preach RP whenever I can, it pains me that so many young men suffer unnecessarily just because they lack proper understanding of themselves, women & life in general. The knowledge is there, these men just need to be pointed in the right direction

That’s exactly what I do. I try to be everyone’s friend. Even the weird guys no one likes. They are usually much more than meets the eye and they tend to be great guys.

[–]xRisingSunx 46 points47 points  (13 children)

If red-pillers in high school do this they will lose their hard earned social status. Women are evil when it comes to these things, especially young women. You can't even associate with a "loser" without being labeled as one.

EDIT: Best case scenario is if the redpiller does it in secret, the advise the guy to find a new social circle because his "sudden change" to being strong, will be met with ridicule and scorn by those who enjoyed the the weak BP that they used to be able to shit on all the time.

[–][deleted] 48 points49 points  (12 children)

Social status in highschool is honestly meaningless. It’s 4 years of your life. You can leave highschool and build a completely different persona and go to college. One of my friends was a total dork in highschool but a cool guy frat bro who got chicks in college.

[–]xRisingSunx 81 points82 points  (10 children)

To us it is, after the fact, but did you really believe that in high school? Right, no one did. High school was life and 4 years was an eternity.

That 4 years is also key in developing your social IQ towards women, which if done incorrectly will have long-lasting negative repercussions for most people.

[–][deleted] 22 points23 points  (9 children)

Idk man. Personally I didn’t give two shits about my social status in highschool. Neither did my friends. Then again our group was pretty tight and probably did way cooler stuff on the weekends than the so called “in crowd”. Most of us were virgins too but def not incel types.. just blue pilled and bamboozled by feminine nature.

All through highschool I was just waiting to get out so I could get on with my life.

[–]xRisingSunx 26 points27 points  (7 children)

our group was pretty tight and probably did way cooler stuff on the weekends than the so called “in crowd”

Then you had a social status.... A tight knit group of outsiders. You thrived on being different than "in crowd". Therefore had no worries about climbing up the social ladder because you and your group had found a position that you were comfortable in. But you still cared about having that status. Had it been lost you would have been back at the bottom of ladder searching for acceptance.

[–]Louis1709 10 points11 points  (6 children)

I didn't attend a single day of high school and I had no friends at all from age 11-22

That Marilyn Manson quote is constantly taken out of context. The question that was asked to him was "What would you say to the people of Colorado if you had to chance to speak with them?" and that was how he responded to the question asked. People constantly think he is responding to what he would say to the shooters, and he wasn't talking about that. Manson very much distanced himself from the Columbine shooters and never condoned what they did and agreed it was a horrific act and had zero sympathy for the shooters. Manson responded this way because he realized that the Columbine shooting was being used as a pawn for political matters and for the media to spin the story in every which direction without anyone actually talking to the community and seeing how they felt about the tragedy and what they think should be done moving forward.

EDIT: Here is an exact timestamp from the interview that OP is talking about

[–]leviathan51 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Is the issue really what you guys picture it to be? Because there are shootings only in the States.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You might want to rephrase, that to there's an overwhelming amount of shootings in the U.S Western world. Attacks on schools, hospitals, and the public in general happen quite frequently in the developing world. Considering America's place politically, economically, and socially, it's an outlier for these types of terrorist attacks.

[–]shegotmass 40 points41 points  (4 children)

The male loser only applies to a portion of the school shooters and them being losers for some of them was because they pushed away people very harshly who tried to befriend them.

Some were just evil psychopaths, the columbine massacres attackers were known bullies and had social circles. There was that indian kid in washington that had girlfriends and was popular he still shot up the school. The virgina tech shooter would creep on girls in the bathroom and when people tried to befriend him he would theaten them. Even elliot roger had people try to befriend him because they saw him alone all the time, but it wasn't good enough because they didn't worship him. In fact elliot roger would bully his meek room mates.

The solution is actual treatment for psychopathy and identifying it since there really is none. I know of one psychopath personally from highschool that joined a local Antifa group that has had boyfriends and girlfriends. That psychopath Antifa member got arrested recently for making threats flashing knives at a parking lot church bakesale saying he was going to run them over before he stabs them. The guy only got a slap on the wrist.

[–]BobBaratheonsBastard 15 points16 points  (2 children)

That example is why shit is so fucked up in the US. No one wants to address the fact that some people in our society have mental problems none of us could fathom. Just let him go bc he probably didn’t mean it is most likely what the cops said in the person you knows specific case. Very fucked up that shit like your example barely bats an eye and people are going crazy over how some celebrity or Joe Schmoe said something insensitive once. No one wants to acknowledge that truly uncomforting and fucked up stuff happens every day. Easier to ignore it than examine it and try to solve it. In its own way this post is an example of that just in RP terms.

[–]shegotmass 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Yes its quite common for the abuser to be given a pass as having a "bad day" and people will make up excuses as to why they had a "bad day" which completly forgets the fact that the abuser attitude is psychopathic and not normal. Instead the victim gets salt thrown in their wound being told to forgive them from a ignorant society. While the abusers whole attitude and actions is never truly punished and the abuser realizes they can get away with more.

Like the kid psychopath in a family getting special treatment from the parents for being a narcissistic fuck up is all too common.

Cops often have a apathetic attitude about violent threats or attempted violence like road rage, weapon flashing an in so don't want to deal with it at all letting them go.

People are just way to naive to think that people they are friends or family that exhibit these behaviors can't be evil.

[–]OhAndOneMoreThing 1 point2 points  (0 children)

No, cops enforce the laws, which generally require that a violent threat involve specific language and a witness (which rarely happens)

Weapon flashing, until very recently, was not illegal unless you pointed the gun at the victim (agg assault)

Hardly think it's fair to generalize cops as apathetic when they do their jobs correctly.

After the last big shooting I was talking with a colleague of mine [f]. I mentioned that they do it for the fame and the recognition in addition to expressing anger.

Sounds like a feminist talking point. I agree it can be harmful but I don't think it's societal or socially constructed. Being able to achieve sexual success is an act of competence. And competence allows you to rise in hierarchies.

[–]GenieGenius 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I disagree. Women are the bottom rung of the ladder of competence if there is one. I.e. If prison inmates, drug dealers who live with their mom, and homeless men can get laid maybe we shouldn't use the sort of women women are attracted to to determine a man's competence in providing something of value to society.

I believe his mother died and him and his brother went into an adoptive family. As horrible as this is and lamenting for deaths of the victims.. it’s really sad that a mestizo orphan kid was so lost and isolated and angry that the only group who took him in was a (alleged) white supremacist militia group.

I saw some idiot on Facebook make a comment about “what kind of idiot with a last name like that joins a white nationalist group?!” .. gee probably the same type of guy in the Middle East who joins isis.. lost hopeless no family and angry/resentful beyond most people’s imaginations.

It’s tragically ironic that a white nationalist militia was the only group interested in taking this kid under their wing after so called progressive institutions like public education target him as a violent threat and fear him. Makes me angry and sick. Although maybe he was beyond saving I don’t know..

Yet if you kill a pregnant woman the embryo is a legal victim, right? The hypocrisy never ends.

[–]roadkill_er 6 points7 points  (1 child)

It is charged as murder if someone besides the mother kills “it.” That means the unborn baby is legally —in these cases— considered human.

Besides, the point here is that the unborn baby should be considered human, which would mean the bartender should have the right and duty to refuse serving alchol to the mother.

Human being. The unborn “fetus” is a human by virtue of its genetic make up. The word being means living. The fetus (baby) is alive. It’s human, it’s alive, Ergo the baby-in-womb is a human being. Regardless of what the State may say.

[–]redditicantrecall 0 points1 point  (0 children)

that makes no sense, if it's a human if someone other than the mother kills it then if the mom kills it it should be called a human

These women fuck up their kids before they're even born, and then send them into society with all these mental handicaps and issues.

[–]Senior Contributor: "The Court Jester"GayLubeOil 123 points124 points  (27 children)

I'ma pull a Zizec here and say that the only reason for a school shooting or really any postmodern degeneracy is a passion for the Real.

The basic premise is that we live in an inauthentic society of spectacle and consumerism. People don't have the opportunity to experience authentic Being as they used to and only experience a simulacra of it through a screen. Furthermore people are forced into artificial inauthentic behavior and situations such as sitting behind a desk for years on end while having their words policed.

It's always those most isolated from authentic existance: the Bloopsters, the spergies, the weirdos, the drama girls that go full throttle into degeneracy in a desperate attempt to feel something.

[–]2mental_models 45 points46 points  (2 children)

School shootings are suicides. Suicide for those who are powerless, and hate their social exclusion. They allow the shooter some control in planning their last day, and to experience ultimate power in their social setting for that final day/hours, and inflict fear and pain upon the general group whom they blame their suicide upon. Doing so legitimatizes and elevates their status from invisible to celebrity (although they don't get to live out that status).

Most shocking thing I read skimming headlines about this Parkland Fl. Shooter was that he was charged with murder. I'm desensitized to any shock of news of a shooting by now, but I'm shocked when they are too cowardly to finish the act, once rounds are spent and paramilitary inevitably closes in. I never considered that he was alive.

Yes they are losers, and yes, the worst part of their life (in their minds) is being denied a sex life. Certainly part of a denial/isolation from authentic existence.

[–]Senior Contributor: "The Court Jester"GayLubeOil 55 points56 points  (1 child)

There are other suicides like watching your wife get creampied, bringing refugees into the country or letting your 14 year old daughter booty short around town.

School Shootings are just the most extreme manifestation

[–]Oscar_Cc 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Probably true. A commenter over at CH left an insightful comment back when the Elliot Rodger rampage happened:

The Stark Truth Also I don’t think sexual frustration is the spark but it adds fuel to the fire. The main reason we see people end like this, is our society has become totally automized. You get people especially secular whites who totally lack any sense of belonging or community.In a collectivist society your worth is based on your religion or ethnicity but in a hyper individualistic one if you don’t achieve success as an individual than you are deemed worthless. That’s why the majority of spree shooters have been from secular white backgrounds but Elliot being biracial only exasterbated that lack of sense of belonging and identity.

[–]1scissor_me_timbers00 24 points25 points  (2 children)

Eh, gonna have to disagree. I think most school shooter situations like this boil down to the hopelessness of being an omega male, coupled with mental illness. These tend to be desperate, low value males acting out. Although I’ll agree with you somewhat due to the fact that these are low value males in the context/backdrop of a society slipping into nihilistic instincts.

That said, you bring up an extremely important point to red pill discussion generally. There’s way too little talk about that baudrillard/Zizek/etc analysis of the postmodern condition and just how ruthlessly inauthentic it is. Just about everything does indeed boil down to an abyss of the Real. Everything these days is LARPing. It’s incredible. Everything from faux-90s fashion, to mustaches with suspenders, to these wannabe “movements” that don’t really do anything other than emulate some shit they saw on the history channel. In the 21st century so far, the simulacrum is devouring all. Although I think we could be violently thrust back into a confrontation with the Real very soon here if economic depression or geopolitical tension breaks out.

[–]i_bent_my_wookiee 4 points5 points  (1 child)

baudrillard/Zizek/etc

Can you throw me some context for this? Are they posters on reddit or something? Are you talking about Jean Baudrillard and Slavoj Zizek?

[–]1scissor_me_timbers00 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Lol yeah they’re not reddit posters. They’re European postmodern thinkers.

I’m all with Jordan Peterson in his critique of the leftist postmodernism, but he really uses “postmodernism” incorrectly there. Postmodernism is a large umbrella of ideas, some of which are very important and valid insights. It just sucks because other branches of postmodern thought has been used to go down this ridiculous path that the current left has, the neo Marxist stuff.

But yeah slavoj Zizek and jean baudrillard.

Baudrillard wrote an important work like 35-40 years ago already noticing the artificiality of everything in the late 20th century world. Everything seemed to be a LARPy imitation of something in the past which was more real. In our present day, after the internet and even more deterioration of genuine culture, this has proven to be a monumental insight.

Zizek is a more radical thinker. He’s an old school Marxist and a Freudian/Lacanian/Hegelian. That shit gets pretty obscure if you don’t have a background in philosophy. But I actually do really enjoy factoring in his critiques of modern society. I’m more libertarian so I completely disagree with his Marxist stuff, but he really is able to point out the bullshit of neoliberal society.

[–]fp6390 1 point2 points  (0 children)

A bit of a stretch to assert that is the only reason. Many shootings are perpetrated by lunatics whose motivations are unclear. While Žižek's thoughts are certainly resounding in our current era, I think it's possibly a misrepresentation of his thesis, and insufficient to explain or guarantee the motives of mass murderers. Particularly if it is felt by all of us. That said, many killers seem to be disenfranchised men. So there's at least a correlation. But what else?

I am interested to explore further this idea of authentic existence. What is it exactly, and why are "Bloopsters" most isolated from it? What makes their lives less authentic? Perhaps their lives are more authentic, and it is the rest of us that are living untruthfully. Our inherent desire for that to be false should serve as an indication that it might not be.

[–]Senior Endorsed ContributorCopperFox3c 152 points153 points  (4 children)

The thing about anger that many people don't understand, is that it is often met with anger. Go around as a society spewing vitriol at men (or anyone for that matter), and don't be surprised if it is met with a lashback. Equal and opposite reactions.

Like you said, no excuse for what happened. But if we want to improve things, then we should be cognizant of the unintended consequences of our choices as a society ... not simply swept up in whatever is in fashion with the mob that day. That is a slippery slope to MeToo and the French Revolution Reign of Terror and communist purge type of stuff ...

Also, as a side note, why to be truly good with women you have to eventually move past the anger stage of TRP.

[–]Rian_Stone 48 points49 points  (3 children)

I wish I had saved it. great comment about anger

Anger is a reasonable and logic response to a situation. It's a mans way of signalling he is willing to commit violence to have his way.

It's a grievance, and until it's seen as one, it's hard to address it

[–]Endorsed Contributorbalalasaurus 8 points9 points  (1 child)

If anything anger in men is seen as an unavoidable and defining shortcoming of our species. We can’t help being prone to anger because we’re brutish and prone to primitive behavior. Never mind the fact that it is men who are responsible for the bulk of societal development and said development could only have been achieved through our elevation beyond our simple primitive nature.

But society wants men to be angry and belittles our anger as nothing more than a consequence of our nature. You keep telling a person that they’ll always be one thing, and they’ll wholeheartedly believe that that’s the only thing they can be. The thought of being anything more never manifests as men are kept in their cages.

I see it all the time in asktrp. And imo the only way we can change it is to stop being so individualistic. But try explain that to a guy who’s felt alone all his life. It’s easier trying to turn water in to wine.

[–]jackandjill22 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That's the thing it's not bad. Our society has numerous "coming of age" for women. But since "Fight club" men have ever only known shame. There needs to be guidance for young men otherwise only the talented & fittest will survive. & that's a recipe for disaster in a socially dysfunctional society.

[–]jackandjill22 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You're both right.

[–][deleted] 58 points59 points  (6 children)

I agree with you. My biggest thing is the loss of the true family unit. A mother, and a father. How these two people are integral in the raising of a young man is what's critcally missing in most, if not all, of these school shooter incidents. These kids that commit these crimes are probably mentally disturbed, but I think much of this comes from not having 2 parents who are present and helping that boy understand what is real, what is fake, what is appropriate, what causes pain, how to deal with bullies, how to not be a bully, etc, etc. They are being raised by a non-existent father, a mother that is too busy with herself, and violence all around him. THIS becomes reality for him. And, in the event that the boy is still disturbed, even while being raised in a proper home, someone that is present in that child's home, in his life, would and should be able to tell that something is amiss.

These violent incidents do not have guns to blame. They don't have video games or violent movies, or comic books or bullies or ANYTHING ELSE to blame. THE LACK OF PARENTING AND LEADERSHIP AT HOME IS TO BLAME.

Men: don't have children. I have two daughters, and they work my ass relentlessly, always needing, always wanting, but what I can give them with my meager means, is a FATHER, who will say yes to their needs and wants occassionally, and NO, a hell of a lot more. And to be there telling them that a lot of what they see is bullshit. Any doubts about life or any of it's small or big decisions, they can ask me. And I watch them. I watch their ever changing moods, what they wear, who they associate with, changes in anything, I see. I might not say anything, but I notice. I'm their fucking santa claus, their tooth fairy, their prison warden.

And most of the time, I don't have to even say anything at all. But I'm there.

These young boys have no one at home that is present, or even "present" in their lives.

[–]AloneOnTheStrange 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Well that's just it, women can't be expected to bang people out of sympathy or threats. Women don't, and shouldn't, give sex as an act of charity. Men have to earn it by being attractive.

But what about something a little more reasonable, like people in general just befriending these people? Should we befriend losers so no one gets shot? I would guess the answer would be exactly the same.

The fact is these individuals are at the bottom of their social hierarchy, and social hierarchies are delicate things. No one, whether the jocks at the top, or the betas in the middle, or even the teachers on the outside of it, wants to disturb it. Even after experiencing a school shooting, I would bet anything that these people would continue to enforce this social hierarchy. They would literally risk their lives to maintain this social order.

Nope.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Alot of kids in the MMA gym. I run a couple of the kid's classes.

Some of the older teenagers today in MMA gyms suffer from a lack of a father.

Cleverly worded RP truths really straighten them out. Disentangling their perceived value from pussy and beta acceptance is the first step. Having them use that anger to fuel their weight lifting is another (I tell them the weights will make their BJJ and wrestling better, not a lie!)

I'm not sure if MMA is your cup-o-tea, but it's not just children who need help. Teens as well.

[–]Joey_Lopez 2 points3 points  (5 children)

No. That would only further encourage the cancer of single moms be subsidizing their bad choices.

[–]blister333 2 points3 points  (2 children)

The young men shouldn’t have to suffer just cause their parents fucked up. You’ll get a revolving door of kids without dads

[–]Joey_Lopez 1 point2 points  (1 child)

You'll further incentivize single motherhood. It's still alpha fux (the real father) and beta bux (you playing the step dad). These people need to hit rock bottom so they'll realize how bad single motherhood is and stop perpetuating it.

[–]blister333 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I don’t think so. Increased birth control and condom use would help a lot. Also men feeling more prepared for future stressors in life would curb the need to ditch the mom. You think hitting rock bottom will stop single motherhood? It exists in 3rd world countries and it doesn’t get worse then that. That’s the definition of rock bottom.

[–]p_and_q 0 points1 point  (1 child)

The mother is already cancerous. The kid can still grow into a functioning member of society with the right mentoring. If being a man is about building things to improve society, what's more manly then working with the hardest material (young boys and men) and building them into strong, self-sufficient men?

[–][deleted] 16 points17 points  (7 children)

Yeah so cheerleaders have to fuck the “weird” kids so we don’t get shot up? As a high schooler myself I know every guy would try to become a “loser” to get that BJ.

I’ve also never had a girlfriend in high school (I’m a senior whose had multiple chances throughout it but I was a beta pussy until this school year). I know kids who don’t have girlfriends and they’re not about to kill anyone.

[–]Rian_Stone 13 points14 points  (4 children)

Case in point. Did you do that intentionally? I was referring to how women can't look past the finger when you point at something.

No I didn’t do it intentionally. I was a beta who texted my oneitis every day until I realized I was not getting anywhere and I stopped. Then a year later I found TRP and it all made sense.

I wonder, if a guy had the prefect storm of propensity for mental illness, access to weapons, and a grievance against the bp dream, would that same TRP roadmap changed his path?

[–]Jikira 38 points39 points  (15 children)

Elliot Rodger comes to mind when looking at the full picture

I have sympathy for most things, but I do not have sympathy for people blaming others for things that only they can fix.

You don't see teens with girlfriends doing so either.

The Florida shooter had a girlfriend.

An inoculation against school shootings if you will. Get the cheerleading team together and simply give blowjobs to the losers in your class. Do it once a year, and finally once again at graduation.

Agree, When I was in Highschool, I didn't do the blowjob thing, but I did spend most of my time with the guys/girls at the bottom of my school hierarchy. I make it an effort to talk and spend time with those guys/girls. Every year for Valentine's day I would bake them cookies and write a personal note. Sometimes, people just need to know that someone acknowledges their existence. I think we should all make a conscious effort to treat people with kindness. I remember one guy who kind of had the mass shooter personality and I became really good friends with totally change he was no longer the sad and depressed guy in the background. He just wanted a friend (girlfriend too?)

Fuck- a phone call now and again would probably be it for 90% of these guys.

So true!! One conversation could change someone life.

Hell, a guy in the desert would drink piss.

My one concern is that guys who are this desperate tend to fall in love with anything that gave them an ounce of kindness. Which is why how you reject a guy is very important. I think there is a correct way to reject a guy, I just think girls nowadays get off on that.

[–][deleted] 48 points49 points  (8 children)

Everything you said is true. When I was in High School, the most popular guy in school (he went on later to become an actual runway model) befriended the most bullied, weakest kid in school, for no other reason than he wanted to and because he saw something great in him. That kid was protected from then on and he completely flourished. He started dressing better, his grades went up, he started getting invited to parties, his entire demeanour changed. It was the most amazing thing and I'll never forget it. There are so many kids starving for kindness and friendship and it's so easy to make a huge impact on their lives.

[–][deleted] 14 points15 points  (6 children)

One of my buddies taught his little brother to always befriend and stand up for bullied kids and I think I’ll do the same if I ever have kids.

[–]Senior Contributorexit_sandman 15 points16 points  (5 children)

Easier said than done tbh.

The problem with the perpetually bullied and/or ignored is that the bullying and ostracizing doesn't appear out of thin air.

To pick the admittedly extreme case of Elliot Rodger: Would you have wanted to be friends with that guy? Probably not.

And now think of a less severe but still serious scenario - a guy who is awkward and/or boring, has weird hobbies and interests (like collecting roadkill or whatever), possibly offends your aesthetic sensibilities (fat, smelly, ugly etc.), may not even be that nice in the first place for whatever reason (maybe he's a know-it-all, maybe he has a temper or whatever) and suddenly what sounds great on paper turns out to be something you'd rather leave to others.

[–]evel333 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Thanks to movies and TV, I think people romanticize this notion of befriending the likable loser with a preconceived idea or appearance in mind.

[–]Jikira 4 points5 points  (1 child)

True, But I don't give a shit. If you think about most things discussed on this sub is easier said than done, but you still keep trying and pushing.

Extreme case of Elliot Rodger: Would you have wanted to be friends with that guy? Probably not.

For me in particular, yes. I spent all of the time with really weird kids. Yesterday, I threw a party for an Elliot Rodger weird type guy. Picture a guy who extremely hates women and been in a couple of mental institution. I have been trying to build this guys trust for the past year. The purpose of the party was for him to make friends and I have to say I have never seen him smile like that. Sometimes these guys never leave their rooms and they don't have any friends. Whenever I see someone not making friends or having trouble I immediately invite them to hang out with me.

True, that is why I don't really expect others to do this. It is something I am passionate about. However, I do not hang around people who do not befriend people because they are weird. My last boyfriend said my friends are weird and he doesn't like them. Dumped his ass. But this is literally because I was that weird person at one point in my life and decided to change. I can usually relate to a lot of issues. I just hope I can influence other to do the same.

Boys and girls shit test just like the rest of us. If a troubled young man passes all the shit tests, he will be accepted into the social hierarchy and start climbing. If he fails all of those shit tests, he will stay entrenched at the bottom. He will continue to get shit on an fail and feel all of the negative emotions associated.

Nice of you, but others probably looked upon this as pity. That is no fault of yours, but the only thing lower than a loser is a loser who is pitied. Every time one of those people smiled from your genuine act of kindness there were others laughing behind their back about how much of a "joke" it was that the person thought you actually liked them.

[–]Jikira 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No, It did not come across as pity because I would bake everyone in my school cookies, but I might add a note to theirs or just have a conversation when I give it to them or invite them to hang out. I just included them.

[–]jackandjill22 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yea, you're right. They do. I was discussing this with a female friend of mine the other night. She dropped a female friend of hers because she was mistreating a guy friend. I said to her, "some guys just don't have enough experience" & it takes a lot more these days; similar to talent under capitalism to survive then it used to.

[–]banjew 10 points11 points  (3 children)

I was as blue as the sky in high school, and this was a time before the internet, and social networks and tinder. So wasn't so bad as a beta, Chad couldn't fuck as many girls as today, and usually you could get laid.

Not me tough, I was the blue aspberger syndrome, the loner, your typical school shooter. I tried to kill myself a couple of times but nothing seriously. I just grew up that phase when I started college.

I can see now there is a much higher proportion of young men that suffer exactly this, now truly only the 20% get to have "social life" while the other 80% are invisible to girls. Back then it wasn't as bad, maybe only with a 20-30% lone virgins.

I can see this increase of male invisibility draws the extreme cases to self-destruction and/or shootings that basically is the same thing. It's an angry suicide.

[–]HitoLunai 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I’m in college right now and 80% of the guys on campus are literally invisible. When I’m bored, I people watch and see so many depressed looking guys. Average isn’t enough these days and that leaves so many guys behind

[–]chaseemall 31 points32 points  (6 children)

Well, what about socializing institutions? I'd suggest Boy Scouts, but that's already becoming converged. What appeals to guys like this? Radicalism. So what you need is an organization which looks radical, but actually turns them into men with some semblance of masculinity, self-assurance, and socialization. Something that looks cool and tames their autism, drives them into physical culture, into a brotherhood of some sort, develops some competence, and facilitates their interaction with women through some kind of social function—dances and the like.

[–]SteveLorde 17 points18 points  (2 children)

Damn shame no one wants to step in and help young male teenagers...

[–]darkmoon09 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Because young men who need help can't really be considered 'men'. Men are supposed to be able to handle their problems which is where most of the hatred and disgust for struggling guys stems from.

[–]1DRMMR76 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Which really only makes sense and works when you live a society that naturally teaches boys to be confident and self-reliant. A father teaches his sons to be capable young men, they have children and teach their sons the same, and so on. Generations of boys who were taught all of these skills by fathers and grandfathers long before they ever enter the social scene and get put to the test. A boy should be taught how to dress, how to act, how to change a tire, how to do a full day's work without complaint, the value of money and how effort combined with intelligence yield personally satisfying results, etc years before he even starts thinking about girls as anything more than "yucky with cooties". By the time a boy is 12 or 14, he should already have a few years of being taught all the valuable skills he'll need by a father who was taught the same from his father. Then as the boy grows into a man, that father is there to help hone those lessons, disciplining when necessary, rewarding the good, slowly adding more rights and privileges while removing limitations year by year (while teaching the connection between the two) so that by the time the boy is an adult, he is more than capable of living his own life on his own terms, fending for himself with a keen and sharp mind, a fit and healthy body, with the drive to achieve and the social, mental, and physical skills neccessary to pull it off.

Women want men to be that ready-made package deal and scoff at the idea of a man needing help, and men also expect other men to just be ready to be men. While this might seem cruel, it's also not wrong if that man had a childhood with a father who was preparing him for this.

Alas, that is no longer the case for a significant portion of boys, which is why the whole system breaks down. Boys don't really have fathers anymore, so they're still inept and listless by the time they're in their late teens and 20s. They don't have the skills to teach their own kids when they knock some girl up, and were never taught how to find a woman worth having kids with (meanwhile feminism successfully destroyed raising girls into women worth having kids with, but that's another topic), and they either end up ditching the kid or just being a shitty father.

The whole cycle relies on an unbroken chain of fathers and grandfathers raising boys to be good men (and mothers and daughters raising girls to be good women, but again, another topic). That chain got broken, so here we are.

[–]tmccar20 1 point2 points  (0 children)

steps that don’t involve prostitution. 1. Predicting crime in Chicago was 60 minutes segment that was trying lowering crime by predicting who was at risk, and having community leaders and law enforcement talk to the individuals. Same process, small changes. 2. If possible push for them to visit a trade school for a week visit, where they use their hands, or martial arts classes, something physical to understand pain and healthy body competition 3. Their problem is with existence itself, maybe push for a 12 step program about screen reduction, church, or therapy program with wood chopping so the emotions can be expressed with a counselor (non-female), meditation focusing on small steps towards the active future. 4. Add to 2 more cops to schools for the state, (probably country) for trial period of 90 days after a shooting which will probably be extended to forever, but I would like to give schools less of a prison vibe. 5. Law enforcement and outreach course as optional class for High school mandatory for at risk youths. 6. Push for basics ROTC training again for high risk youth minus gun training. 7. Maybe A male recess teacher for grade schools who understands aggressive behavior, so they learn to “fight it out,” and when to stop. This job could done in a month. 8. There also the fame component to this, no mail from the outside world except family and lawyer, the Batman shooter had all of these pictures from very attractive females, very damaged individuals “who were in love with him,” gross behavior. 9. TV have to black bar the their eyes when showing the shooter, Or pay heavy FCC fine. If cursing isn’t okay then showing their face is far more obscene and reckless.

[–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Prior to the 21st century (we’ll not exactly true still happens) before these guys got too resentful and went postal.. they were probably used as human shields, or for suicide attacks.

The only time in their lives they get any “praise” or heroism in society is when their brokenness is manipulated for group advantage. Quite tragic and sad.

[–]H3yFux0r 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I was accidentally/naturally Red pill in high school I was average looking, but skinny for a time (senior year I took weight lifting class 90mins a day all year and that changed), good grades, and a computer geek. Although at that time people called us computer wizards and did not make fun of us for it as we helped everyone with computer problems and they all knew STEM was making money, but I still picked up girls. None of my friends in computer class could get a girl they all looked at me with wonder and or disgust when I would hang with girls or go to parties. I saw that Elliot Rodger look in their eyes. I had to get all of them dates for dances and now looking back I see that my example helped them. I never realized it for a long time but them asking questions about every detail of my relationships was them asking "How the fuck did you lay that pussy pedestal cheerleader!?" Spread the wealth guys, teach your friends. I got enjoyment from it, these guys had never seen a IRL bare set of tits at age 16-19. One guy Chris was so afraid of girls he formed a stutter trying to talk to girls. I would throw parties a week before dances and hook all my friends up. In the summer times it was good old fashion American drunken barn parties where my friends got to test the waters for themselfs. By the time college came around school work was top priority for them not sex/girls, it was much more healthy. Looking back I know it helped them alleviate that tension and it made them a better student/person to experience a girls touch. I'm not saying anyone of them would have shot up a place but you just never know these days.

[–]Senior Endorsed Contributormax_peenor 69 points70 points  (15 children)

And I don't see this trend of extremism changing until our culture changes its attitude towards men and boys.

It's going to get worse.

I was just thinking about this. Why doesn't Mexico have mass school shootings dominating their media? Don't they have lunatics south of the border? Of course they do. However their lunatics just join a drug cartels and dismember rival gang members for fun and post videos of it on youtube. Or you can pack your bags for Syria and play the same game but to a different tune. Malcontents and crazy people will always exist. The question is what mechanism is in place to manage it.

For several hundred years in America, the mechanism was white, christian community values. Men yielded power in their community and cleansed them of problems like this kid, either by forcing him to get his shit together or by ousting him. They promoted good behavior and crushed bad behavior--at the local, community level. Now? Those are the exact people under attack. They want to take our guns and silence us. They want a big government to hunt down the trouble makers and deal with it, so the rest of us won't have to do it.

The problem is clearly a big government can't do it. They failed to do it here. They are failing to do it in South America. Last time I checked the Middle East is still a colossal clusterfuck. It was the values of individual people that controlled this, not an uncaring mass entity that serves its own purposes.

So yeah. These young boys will continue to be under attack. Actual lunatics will slip through the system and do all sorts of horrors. Disenfranchised young men, facing no alternatives, will idolize their acts and copy them. The default state for every young male is becoming that of a criminal--a rapist, a violent offender and an oppressor. And when everyone is a criminal, no one cares about the law. And in the end there will be no one to defend the system.

Enjoy the decline.

[–]1scissor_me_timbers00 14 points15 points  (0 children)

So true. It won’t get better. All these “new dawn” cuckservstives are fucking delusional. As are these idiot liberals thinking the government can solve all the problems w the right policy, and anyone who disagrees isn’t “compassionate” enough. Holy fuck the whole thing just disgusts me to my core.

In my country, male teachers were once considered to be well above your father in terms of respect.

We need more make teachers and perpetuating this stigma doesn't help.

[–]SKRedPill 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I'm not perpetuating it. My best teachers were male and their ability to command a classroom by just presence was something else. But look, I come from halfway around the world from the states and even here male teachers are a minority in schools (I think that's also partially because the very good ones run their own private centres, but still).

It's just the way society's becoming -- the educational system doesn't do much good for boys these days.

The mechanism was "community" it wouldn't have mattered if the value were asian and buddhist.

That community was run by males (and sometimes females) with wisdom and life experience. Not only do we have a lack of community nowadays but a lack of respect towards the elderly whose years of knowledge could help us immensely in solving our problems at a local level.

Nobody wants to silence anyone or take any of your guns. But to say that guns aren’t an issue is ignorant. This is the only first world country where this happens regularly. And guns of course aren’t the cause or even the main issue, but the bottom line is this type of destruction isn’t possible without a killing machine. Nobody should be against more intensive background checks and the closing of some gun related legal loopholes.

If you want to ask yourself why this happens, look no further than the media coverage of these events as well as the disinfranchisement of young men on the bottom of the social ladder. The hopeless and bitter will go to extreme lengths, and while most losers wallow in self pity and defeat, some channel their anger into destruction.

[–]Senior Endorsed Contributormax_peenor 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Bullshit. Have you even read this thread?

This kid was already afoul of multiple laws for many years. Which loophole do we need to close to fix that? You want to a rely on a system that has no incentive to perform. That's dangerously ignorant.

Hell, a guy in the desert would drink piss.

This has been my argument for terrorist organizations that seem to thrive in the actual desert. Why do people join? Because their lives suck.

It's not more complicated than that. I could easily see my self becoming a terrorist if I lived under the same circumstances, with the same rhetoric directing my anger into hated towards others.

How do you stop it from happening? Make their lives suck less.

Give a loser an uninspired blow job, dramatically decrease school shootings. Give a desert dweller air conditioning, clean water, and an uninspired blow job, end the war on terror. It seems ridiculous, but it's basic human nature.

It reminds me of Col. Hans Landa from Inglorious Bastards, comparing hiding Jews to rats and Nazis to hawks.

"Consider, for a moment, the world a rat lives in. It's a hostile world, indeed. Where does the hawk look? He looks in the barn, he looks in the attic, he looks in the cellar, he looks everywhere he would hide. But there's so many places it would never occur to a hawk to hide. However, the reason the Führer has brought me off my Alps in Austria and placed me in French cow country today is because it does occur to me. Because I'm aware of the tremendous feats human beings are capable of once they abandon dignity"

These extremist outliers have no dignity. A blow job would really go a long way.

[–][deleted] 24 points25 points  (2 children)

Bread and circuses. The ruling class has known for a long time that as long as people are fed and entertained, they'll do little more than complain.

I'd wager that video games have actually prevented a lot of killings because they keep incels placated. Unfortunately, teenage male sex drive is often too high for simple distractions to work, hence why shooters are young men.

The men who carried out the London terrorist acts several years ago where highly skilled in society (lawyer and doctor iirc). Isis has plenty of engineers as well.

Also as far as giving these men better conditions, I believe Sweden wanted to give isis members free housing if they denounced their allegiance to the group.

Very true.

The US needs to legalise prostitution at federal level immediately. This is the best way to provide frustrated youths with an outlet for relief.

The problem is the feminisation of society. Not mental health or gun laws. Before one could simply fuck up the person who wronged them. This is not the case because most men run to the police or try and suit when attacked especially in middle class communities. Before these men woul have been derided for acting like pathetic pitiful bitches. Now it is acceptable and deemed socially unacceptably to resort to fists if someone wrongs you.

Consequebtly, most men or boys will bitch on social media. Before the rise of feminism the there were no cases of school shootings.

These shootings are symptomatic of male suppression both sexually and also in terms of the ability of a man to obtain justice in the easiest and cheapest way possible - Through his fists.

We need to see feminism for socially corrosive cancer that it truly is and deal with it appropriately by putting these dogs back in their place.

The collective response was "no wonder women didn't like him, what a loser!" This was the country, banding together under the banner of the fempire, sticking out their collective tongues and doubling down on their open disgust of males and their stupid vulnerabilities and needs.

Because it's true, women shouldn't have to fuck loser men who don't try to improve. Women can't understand the concept of sexual frustration and what it does to a man when everything society tells you is against what your needs are. It's a completely foreign idea that sounds ridiculous.

The solution to stop men from behaving this way is embracing masculinity, which has already been dubbed as "toxic" anyway.

[–]blister333 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Frustrated males at the bottom of the dominance hierarchy have always existed since the beginnings of humanity. It is not a modern phenomenon. Just look at the story of Cain, he's basically the ancient prototype of the school shooter.

Personally I don't see a solution to this problem, in every kind of social hierarchy you will have individuals at the bottom, and these will often be resentful and seek revenge.

The difference is that these men in the past did not have automatic rifles that can kill dozens of people within a minute. Guns do play a role, even though Americans don't want to hear it. There are far less mass shootings in Europe, and I wouldn't say that men are less frustrated over here.

[–][deleted] 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Idk man.. in every case of school shooters it really goes back to a root problem that most of them are emotionally broken tortured individuals.

You can be at the bottom of hierarchies and still smile. I see Mexican guys in New York who probably sleep in shifts and live on bread and salt smiling. It’s because they have fraternal bonding and a sense of belonging..

Every school shooter situation the individual is often isolated and their parents are either not present, gave up, or abusive. Some cases the kid is on psychiatric meds.

Also lots of men in the past way more than today died in battle. I would not doubt militaries would use individuals like this for suicide attacks just like they did in ww2 japan and today in the Middle East.

When people hear the term "social hierarchies" the first thing they think of is money, or political influence. But these Mexicans are not at the bottom of the social hierarchy if they have friends and loved ones who value them. Not many people outside of Red Pill circles consider status as being so heavily tied to your social lives.

Over at PPD a lot of people gawked when I said that being able to get you into clubs is a mark of status. They dismissed it as teenage bullshit, and real men and women don't care about that sort of thing. Yet if you look around you see successful women well into their 30s and 40s swooning over guys who do exactly that.

People need friends more than they need money. If you are alone, having money just feels empty.

[–]vast_rightwing 1 points1 points [recovered]

its an unfortunate cost of freedom. theres a reason America decayed from marxist influences much slower than europe.

similar to the breakdown of the marriage contract. there was a point where both parties had some degree of power so it was a negotiation. there was the option for either party to go nuclear but both wanted to avoid it at all costs because both would suffer from the decision. now, theres really no reason for a chick not to walk - in fact she has a financial incentive. Europeans cant easily fight marxist destruction. Theyre stuck either taking it on the chin or running and never really having a home. And ultimately, failing to fight marxism leads to 1940's Germany... something nobody really escaped.

We can debate all day how to reduce the negative impact of the mentally ill but ultimately the number of deaths needs to be in the millions before we can say simply taking guns away is the lesser evil.

[–]rp_newdawn 11 points12 points  (3 children)

Damn. That last line hit me like a ton of bricks. I was raised by a military father who strongly supported the second amendment. Although my own beliefs are less strong, I do fear what can happen when you combine and unarmed populace with a tyrannical government.

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (2 children)

This line of thinking is absolutely comical. If the government decided to become “tyrannical” there isn’t a fucking thing a bunch of armed civilians could do about it. Your AR-15 isn’t going to do much do the tank rolling down your neighborhood street.

[–][deleted] 10 points11 points  (3 children)

The argument was culture. Your obsession with guns is not the point, despite your want for it to be the only point.

I'm from New York, actually. And the cultures are pretty fucking similar. Someone in outer Melbourne ran down some people with a car yesterday. Same thing happened in the city center a year ago. If people had access to weapons that can kill people rapidly, we'd have shootings like the US, too. The difference is the access.

[–]Senior Endorsed Contributormax_peenor 4 points5 points  (46 children)

No. Australia is still very conservative and relatively homogenous. America is very widely split and in the middle of forced cultural integration. The latter is particularly bad since it is counter to three centuries or organic cultural integration, where immigrants came here with explicit understanding that they would become American--but hey, some of their traditions might mix into the pot. Now we are supposed to accept anything and everything from anywhere, because, well, just because. You did not see school shootings in America 100 years ago either.

Culture matters. Technology cannot be undone. You are fighting against something you cannot stop, instead of addressing something you can change. It's just plain stupid.

Oh, and please, let's talk about all the places where guns are banned yet people still seem to get shot up. Shall we?

[–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (39 children)

Australia isn't conservative or homogenous. It just doesn't have widespread gun ownership after the Port Arthur Massacre. And that's because a conservative Prime Minister made serious gun control reform.

Where are guns banned that people get shot up? How are the relative numbers compared with the USA?

I'm not arguing that the original post is wrong. I think that it has a great deal of insight. But the cunt who shot up that school in Florida couldn't have killed 17 people with a knife.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (21 children)

More guns are in private hands now (Australia) than there were in 1996.

The murder rate actually went up for several years after the ban on guns, before resuming it's decline that had started more than 10 years before 1996.

Overall, though it is true that school shootings ended in Australia after the 1996 gun legislation, it's hard to say if the overall increase in crime and violence outside of school justified the legislation.

That's the problem with knee jerk legislation, you attempt to fix one issue with laws and create more problems that require legislation. A vicious cycle.

Australia isn't conservative or homogenous

Compared to pretty much the rest of the first world, it most certainly is.

News flash: gun control isn't the only issue that decides your political spectrum. In fact, did you know it was Ronald Reagan they first pushed for gun control in the US? Probably not.

The obsession with guns is crippling.

He should have rented a big truck and waited for school to get out.

You have a point: people hell bent on killing are always gonna find some way to do it. That doesn’t mean society shouldn’t try to limit access to guns. School mass killers use guns the vast majority of the time.

[–]EdAnt 0 points1 point  (7 children)

So then how come there are no school shootings 30/40 years ago when guns were equally as accessible? The difference is culture

[–]monadyne 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Just as a point of reference to EdAnt's statement. I'm a 69 year old guy. When I was 12 years old, living in a suburban town in New Jersey, I walked downtown to the sporting goods store, plunked the twenty dollars I'd saved up onto the counter, and bought a single-shot shotgun. I then took my proud possession and walked home with it. No one looked at me twice as I walked up the main street of the town, or past the homes in the residential section on the way to my house. No cop stopped me. It was considered natural for boys to have an interest in guns. We were taught gun safety by our fathers... and that was that. We were expected to act responsibly and we did.

It was a vastly different world than the one I see around me now.

About five doors down from the sporting goods store was a coffee shop run by right-wing John Birchers. They gave out pamphlets about the dangers of communism and the One World Government the secret cabal was going to foist off on the world. Years after the gun-buying incident when I was a hippie, my friends and I used to laugh at those nut-case right wingers. Fast forward to now and you can see that the agenda is well and truly on its way to reality. The EU is one of their successes. The globalization of labor and money is the biggest. Countries are being coerced to abandon their archaic concepts of sovereignty in favor of the New World Order. Gynocentrism is turning modern American (and other) men into cucks willingly giving up the right to bear arms. It's chilling to watch all this happening in real time.

[–]drallcom3 1 points1 points [recovered]

There is no solution. There will always be loser males in every society. Hell, nature made it so by having a surplus of men (usually a lot would die off and they're meant to compete). Not even a super conservative society with functioning families, gender separated schools and a guaranteed female works (there aren't enough).

There hasn't been a mass school incident with pipe bombs, an axe or a canister of gas. Killing 17 people with an axe is next to impossible if they're running away.

[–]nuttin_butt_love 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]blacklightsleaze 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]maplemaximus 15 points16 points  (1 child)

The kid involved with the shooting was a victim of rape and molestation, and honestly he looks inbred and might be autistic. If you're suggesting a lack of sex or female interaction amongst men is causing these shootings, then clearly the problem is mental weakness in society. The sole issue is proper societal values.

Family values have been destroyed, and now you're seeing a lot of rogue teenagers out here doing whatever the hell it is they want. It was just a year ago that a 17 year old being charged with murder, cut off his ankle monitor and went from Texas all the way to New Jersey and was making music and committing crimes on the run.

Come to find out, this kids dad was mostly uninterested in taking care of him and left him to buy his own clothes, food, and really just let the kid do whatever. Both the kids parents were crips. It was just an all around shitty situation.

If someone is shooting because life is lame, then honestly, fuck them.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

God damn I had to scroll forever to find this but thank god I did.

I think it's idiotic to say lack of sex and female attention is the root of this. Like you said, wrongful societal values. Are feminists and the far left pushing agendas that destroy basic societal values...yes. Is it women not blowing losers in their school the cause of mass shootings, no.

IMO, Core values in America are being destroyed because of agendas like the feminist agenda suggesting there is no difference in genders. There ARE differences in genders and those differences are the basis of the family structure.

Does Hollywood push an agenda that treats sex like it's no big deal, yes and I think that leads to undermining family values as well.

The problem is caused by a vast amount of complicated variables. But this post was kinda missing the boat.

[–]fromthecrypt8 7 points8 points  (2 children)

Expanding on your cheerleader BJ suggestion (which btw I think should take place at least once per semester, not once a year), imagine if all men had access to top notch pussy as often as they’d like, kinda like a society where prostitution was legal in every country and not stigmatized. I hypothesize there would be a huge drop in crime rates in about every corner of the world. The entire female imperative relies on the power pussy holds over male biological urges.

[–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Notice how you don't hear about mass killings happening very often in countries where prostitution is legal..

[–]nuttin_butt_love 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Right? Exactly why you never see any mass shootings in the only state with legalized prostitution

[–]AfraidGarbage 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Way too much emphasis is being spotlighted on mental illness, and gun control (in the media). What this article says is dead on. Im sure though that more often than not people feel inadequate compared to the Jock/cheerleader crowd. Most average joes probably feel like losers in this regard.(social status, girls) But what about the cheerleader who has an eating disorder. Or the cheerleader who has been sexually abused. I believe the problem is that society puts too much emphasis on what it sees. Instead of what the actual problems are.

[–]Merica911 4 points5 points  (1 child)

As for prevention, here's an idea- an inoculation against school shootings if you will. Get the cheerleading team together and simply give blowjobs to the losers in your class.

Okay. First off. No. You don't want the mass shooting done in America soon switch different genders?

I like that you're drawing parallels but, like the MSM, you're just off target.

You can give me 100 males that were born into fatherless homes or being adopted that are losers and I can give you 200 that successful. Steve Jobs was adopted. Stefan Molyneux grew up without a farther and I'm not going to sit here all day firing off names.

And the last boy that did the mass shooting before this Florida loser was actually close to his dad, called his dad, to tell him he loved him, minutes before killing himself. And the Vegas shooter had a current girlfriend.

Let's be honest, we are ALL losing human connection. Rich, poor, black, white. We all become a face of the same color and fronts of walls of text, no real face to see. The more we are online, the less we spend time in person with someone. The more we masturbate, the less we have sex. The more we are high off drugs with intoxicated thoughts, the less time we have sober thoughts. The more we try to put another notch on our belt of chicks we banged, the less time we just settle down with one girl and family build. And last but not least, the more we "just don't give a fuck" the less we give a fuck about someone. There's always trade offs. And I'm bet, we as a society can no longer see the desperation help that one is bearing inside.

The parallels you or anyone can draw is the ones that everyone already knows. 1. A complete Fucking losers and no longer cares about being a loser. And 2. No longer wants to be on this planet and wants to take out as many people with them.

I know this recent shooting is all over news right now but I just don't think you or anyone in the TRP sub should be riding this wave of "Why? What to do? And how to stop it?" Because we don't know. Still this day the greatest Secret is what one thoughts are.

The answer I have for you is that I have no answer and neither does the rest of us.

[–]VirginPlaya 0 points1 point  (0 children)

"We don't know" yes. Simple as that.

The reasons why shootings happen, is quite a touchy subject that requires extensive research to draw any sort of conclusions. And even then requires precision to leave as little room for misinterpretation as possible. For everyone's sake.

Anyways, this whole tone, generalised and absolutist, "THE only reason why!" is quite ignorant and, in my opinion, not helpful.

[–]reggie-hammond 7 points8 points  (12 children)

Funny. I always blame these shootings - and many other crimes and craziness - on guys being unable to get laid - i.e. we need to legalize prostitution.

But on a serious note, the downfall of any civilization is the inability of its young men to provide for themselves (to build a family) along with the opportunity to procreate (or at least initially have sex). If neither are an option, something terrible always happens.

[–]blister333 7 points8 points  (3 children)

Ripple effect of 40 years of a declining middle class being passed down to another generation can’t help. Men are judged by their job and wealth creation. They at least need to have a job that positivity contributes to society. That’s becoming harder for the average man in America

[–]reggie-hammond 2 points3 points  (2 children)

In 1996, for the first time (in the US) women earned more bachelor's degrees than men.

By 2007, there were a million more women in the country with at least a bachelor's degree than men. By 2011, women surpassed men for total number of graduate degrees. And by 2016, the number for bachelor's degrees was up to 2.0 million.

Yet, evidently, our "real" problem is that there aren't enough women in STEM professions even though most women don't want to be in STEM professions.

Its definitely NOT men graduating high school at a lower rate. Or that college campuses are now <40% men. Or that manufacturing and labor jobs - careers with a majority of men - have been losing ground for more than 3 decades.

EDIT: and let me know if you want actual PROOF as to why the "wage gap" bw men and women is complete horseshit.

[–]OhAndOneMoreThing 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I want it, just so I can print it out and keep it in my pocket.

[–]reggie-hammond 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The ridiculousness of the wage gap is that all people are doing to compute this 77% or 74% or 78% number is adding up all of the working men and women, then adding up all of their wages, and then dividing the first number by the second. That's ridiculous.

Bc it doesn't account for career specific jobs let alone guys like Gates, Bezos and Buffett fuck up the entire scheme.

But if you actually look at the number "by profession" and "by hours worked" and "by experience" and "by education" and you include "maternity leave"... the difference bw men and women is somewhere bw 95% and 98%.

[–]rashnull 8 points9 points  (1 child)

I have no problems going against the grain here. There is no other 1st World Western country that has this issue of a large number of mass shootings, no matter the stage of ultimate feminism it is in. This is an undeniable fact. Taking guns away simply removes the possibility of mass casualty via shooting. Like they say, what can go wrong, will go wrong! - Murphy

People will always find a way to kill other people. The state of one’s mental health is not a permanent state of being. It cannot be used to determine whether one should be allowed to own a firearm or not.

[–]LavaPipe 6 points7 points  (0 children)

You hit the nail on the head with how society reacts to loser-types. These guys are completely ostracized from social interactions with anyone who isn’t a loser like them. It probably does feel horrible to hold such a low reputation and to have most people not even acknowledge your existence or when they do it’s condescending or bullying. I have a couple friends of friends that are of the incel self defeatist type and they just feed off of each other and really begin to hate women and men who’ve they have never interacted with simply because of their success. The worst part is that shitting on incels is completely socially acceptable. On Facebook there will occasionally be posts of some guy (picture included) with a rant saying what a disgusting objectifying piece of shit he is because of a couple Facebook messages. The comments are always filled with hundreds of women and white knights agreeing that they always thought he was a weirdo and that he’s a scumbag creep. Even here on reddit you can just go on any askreddit thread that has anything to do with gender roles and say something about “I’m an incel” and people will downvote you to hell and receive tons of upvotes just for cussing you out and stereotyping you for no other reason than you admitting you get puss. There’s no escape for these poor souls. No wonder there was such a visceral reaction from incels during “gamer gate”

[–]Endorsed ContributorBluepillProfessor 3 points4 points  (0 children)

It is done entirely by male students who have been ostracized and have no sense of belonging... and they don't have girlfriends. They are, by all accounts losers.

Truer words have never been spoken. Not a single media outlet has tied in the fact this perp attacked on Valentines Day. That was no coincidence!

In every previous society guys like this got married young (assortively) and were given a family to raise. Today young men like this have NOTHING and society continually shits on them over and over and over again. When they cry out in pain women sneer and the men roll their eyes.

I have seen it said on TRP before and it is true. We would have a different Elliot Rodgers and school shooting EVERY DAY if not for online porn.

[–]1kick6 9 points10 points  (2 children)

I don't think the problem is that they're shunned. Men throughout history have not been "the cool kids," and survived. They used to retire to their basements where they couldn't be picked on to play D&D and society left them alone.

But we can't have that anymore. We have social media. The ridicule is now literally inescapable. Not to mention, they can't even have their D&D without a heaping serving of leftist shit. There is literally no respite for them, and no guiding force (thanks to the new single-mom family model) to get them through it. The culture has abandoned beta men AND THEN blamed them for everything. Of course some are going to get angry to the point of murder.

I honestly thing that there is no one single thing that causes these school shootings, the only thing we can do is evaluate the factors that are constant across each case. Mental illness seems to be one but I don't think the other factors/causes are easy to identify.

I do theorize that the pussyfication of the west contributes to these shootings but I cannot say to what extent.

[–]jackandjill22 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Fuck mental illness. What's producing these outcomes? What's the cause of creating these people these are no longer isolated incidents.

[–]moneybitchesandpower 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Feminisation is likely the most significant causal factor. These shootings are mostly perpetrated by white middle class makes. Compared to most cultures, in America white middle class culture has been completely hijacked by feminists, and as a consequence it is the most supersize towards masculinity. Looking at the bigger picture, fault lies with feminism rather than these kids.

[–]Senior Contributorexit_sandman 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Now that you mention it, I have to think of a comment I've read ages ago on a forum frequented by longterm virgins. It wasn't necessarily a dark place - the people there appeared pretty normal, at least in writing, when compared to guys you would meet at the incel-subreddit - but really really depressing.

But the feeling of being wronged (and to get some payback) still existed there, though it didn't look for a tangible target. One of the comments that met wide approval was "if I God exists and I meet him after I'm dead, I'll beat him up" - which is code for "fate/life has been unfair to me".

But more interesting, in one of the threads there, the topic was other (presumed) permavirgins these guys knew, and one of them mentioned a colleague (also a loser and a loner) of his who was already in his 50s. And this guy said that if that guy one day started going on a killing spree, he couldn't really blame him for it.

Which is interesting insofar because when reading between the lines, the message this commenter also conveyed was that once he lost all hope of ever experiencing intimacy, he would also be at his personal breaking point. And this corroborates the point you've made - that the promise, or even just mere perspective, of future intimacy is the only thing that keeps plenty of the guys affected going and not acting out on their (very much justified) frustration.

Oh spare me, this is complete bullshit. That kid was a violent antisocial dangerous man. He even had a girlfriend that he beat up. Don't even for one second blame women for this, crazy outliers like this have always existed.

So fuck that guy. Society don't need men like him. The pill is bitter - be a man that society and women need or you can really just die.

True, kid got a fucked up childhood. But still, he has to take the responsibility of his actions.

Most people with alcohol fetal syndrome dont shoot up schools. Most people who experienced the death of their mother dont shoot up schools. Most people in foster care dont shoot up schools. Heck, even most people with antisocial personality disorder dont shoot up schools.

So fuck that guy.

This reminds me of an article I read a few months ago about the link between societies, that to some degree practices polygamy, and war:

https://www.economist.com/news/christmas-specials/21732695-plural-marriage-bred-inequality-begets-violence-link-between-polygamy-and-war

For example in South Sudan your wealth is measured in cattle and brides cost cows. A rich man with lots of cattle can get lots of wives. This leaves women in short supply, so a poor man from a poor family may resort to cattle raids in hopes of capturing cattle so he can get a wife.

[–]Rene-Girard 1 points1 points [recovered]

Logically the idea makes sense, that men become terrorists and school shooters because they are ostracized, unloved and cannot use sex to release with their frustrations.

But there is no evidence for it. Most terrorists and suicide bombers have wives, girlfriends and many children who love them. It's much more common than not.

So, while I agree with your line of thought, it is simply not the case because all evidence says otherwise. Even in general, the more loved a man is, the more violent and ruthless he becomes. Violent criminals almost always have beautiful girls lining up to have sex with them and carry their children.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's not really comparable to Islamic terrorism. Islamic terrorists are using violence to achieve a political goal. School shooters are just people who have given up on society and want to express their rage on the way out.

[–]MethaCat 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I think this could explain some but not all, there are psychopathic and sociopathic reasons as well. Some mass murderers have been described as charming and agreeable. There's also the radicalized normal person that was targeted, used and disposed to further an agenda. Many more reasons like passion crime gone wrong, douchery gone wrong, gang membership, and a long list of etceteras.

The main problem here is to do the human thing and just go ahead and find that one answer than can solve all our problems.

Life is much more complicated, so there could be many more reasons for this.

If all it took was being a desperate looser, considering the way life is, we would have mass shootings every minute.

[–]SKRedPill 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Sounds like the definition of Toxic Masculinity is in fact extreme Blue Pill conditioning.

But Dr. Glover ("No More Mr. Nice Guy") pointed out in another case that many of these shooters were in fact mentally ill. In this guy's case, he's adopted, doesn't have parents (both adopted parents died), has a history of disturbed behaviours.

Many people, before they become mentally ill, follow a pattern of unhealthy mental thoughts and beliefs until it gets set in their mind. There is a concept of 'conscious mental diet' where you have to actively put in good thoughts and beliefs in your mind every day just like you have to go out to the gym and work and you eat your meals. But that's seldom attended to and by the time you're diagnosed, it's already very far down the line.

Maybe we must have a special chapter on cultivating a healthy mental diet and preventive mental medicine in the sidebar

[–]Gozsayin 1 point2 points  (0 children)

OP brings up a very important point that the media completely grazes over. The Why? Talking from experience as a 22yr old recently out of college and highschool. The common joke in my time was that one of the select weirdo kids in school would one day be a school shooter. This joke never set right with me as I was friends with one of the school's select weirdos. That why every since 9th grade I made it my business to always treat other kindly befriending people that many considered beta blue weirdos( many avoided this for fear of lowering their social status). I can happily say I didn't fall into this trap we're other openly told me to stop hanging out with A or B so because it made me look bad. Despite this I never did and eventually people got over it and I actually saw bigger boast in popularity after the initial dip and along with my loner friend. We never really talked about it but We both realized how far having even one person in your corner can be.

Great article that distills the issue down to the root cause. Yes, blame the murderer for this crime, because he decided to do it.

But a societal shift has completely unbalanced the sexual marketplace in favour of women, so much so that they have more sexual options than they know what to do with.

Women have been given such an extreme abundance of attention and sexual opportunities that it has come at great expense to the mental health of men.

Men now experience great confusion and worthlessness because a basic need for female companionship is going unmet in the vast majority of men.

The majority of men are going years without any female attention, and when they try to find out why this is, society gives them extreme shame and embarrassment at worst, and subversively ineffectual advice at best.

It's the reason why you don't see Chad from the football team that gets his knob slobbered on by a different cheerleader each night stocking up on guns to teach other students a lesson.

I know it's not exactly a school shooting, but Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (Boston Bomber) was very much a Chad normie, had lots of friends, got laid a lot, and smoked weed, and did wrestling. His Twitter is pretty reflective of his personality.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

He was an Islamic terrorist. He was using violence as a means to achieve a political end. Completely different situation. This is why I also find it so infuriating when the media says "see, straight white males commit terrorism too."

[–]throwawaydefriended 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Islamic terrorists usually have the same type of anti-Chad troubled past that school shooters have. Look at the Wiki pages of each of the 9/11 pilots. Even if it's politically driven, it takes a special kind of person with a fucked up past to be homicidal like that.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Not really man. History has shown that its quite easy to kill your society's enemies. Suicide attackers are of course extreme, but still part of the same continuum. Mass shootings are so horrifying and confusing because the shooter is attacking his own society and picking out random people. It is basically a person that has come to hate his own people so much that he has chosen to do this. I don't really see any parallels at all with Islamic terrorism.

[–]masta_weyne 1 point2 points  (0 children)

We can all agree that this behavior comes from depression and mental illness. Mental illness is largely a result of modern day civilization. There needs to be more awareness raised about the real causes of why these people feel this way. It's not because they aren't getting pussy. It's not because their social skills aren't the best. It's because modern day lifestyle is not something we are properly adapted to.

This video is a presentation about a study on the link between depression and civilization. Depression prevalence among the 18-24 demographic in the United States is currently at 25%, which is obviously much higher than previous generations, and projected to go up to 50% in coming years. Why is this? What has changed so much in the past 20 years? Technology and lifestyle.

I've linked a video below. He is comparing depression rates in the United States to a tribe in New Guinnea (Kaluli). The rate of depression in that tribe? One marginal case out of 2,000 (about 100x lower than our rate). If that isn't enough proof for people who are depressed to consider that their lifestyle is probably causing their issues, I don't know what is. We were not designed for the environment we are in.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=drv3BP0Fdi8&feature=youtu.be

Depressed people are not active. 60% of all American adults get no regular physical activity every day. These hunter-gatherer groups such as the Kaluli get an average of 4 hours of intense activity, every day, just by doing normal tasks to keep their community functioning. That is what we are adapted for, and it is not what we do. Physical activity is only part of what hunter-gatherer groups get that we don't. Watch the video for more info.

The health care industry knows all of this, but they can't capitalize on telling people to change their lifestyle. This simple video actually changed my life a few years back when I first watched it, as I went through severe depression myself at one point in my life. I incorporated intense exercise into my lifestyle along with some diet changes over a year ago and have improved on every aspect of my life.

[–]johnsmithopoulos 2 points3 points  (4 children)

There is a lot wrong with this post. It wants to blame society for hating maleness. This is a fundamental error. Maleness is extra societal. it sits beyond society. Maleness relates to frontiership, discovery, conquering. In a world with no frontiers, the masculine energy is in a philosophical crisis, not under cultural attack. The distortion of masculine energy that not longer has true frontiers, or real wars is what culture tries to control.

Mix these ideas up, and remover the philosophical problem and you simply foster resentment where there should be none.

This malaise of masculinity which, as I pointed out, cannot and should not be scapegoated but rather investigated, is related to the core of the school shooters. They are scapegoating their lack of male agency, their lack of ability to discover, conquer, fight in a constructive manner. They are not analysing and hence finding avenues where there is still need to conquer, discover, build and own. And the real underlying problem is related to an economy that no longer gives opportunities, but that is a whole other topic.

The other thing to note is that the only difference between America and the rest of the world is not the amount of violence coming form this existential western crisis, but rather the effectiveness and deadliness. A young man in Australia who sees no direction for themselves will commit suicide, but a young man in USA will take 20 people with him because AR15s are as easy to buy as milk

[–]DeathWhiskeyJack 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Anyone who thinks that banning guns in the US will work is not living in reality.

This goes beyond whether I agree with you or not. There are more guns in the US than there are people. If the government tries to ban guns and attempts to take them from it's citizens, there will be a civil war. No if's, and's, or but's about it.

The idea of making guns illegal in the US is a complete fantasy. Whether it is a good thing or not is completely irrelevant.

[–]Fus_Roh_Potato 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I would argue that this isn't the real reason but rather one of many real reasons that all build up to something bigger: A bunch of pussies who know better but instead choose to sit back and enjoy the ride for what it is.

Consider excess cultural diversity, it's promotion, and the unseen anti-majority (in most cases anti-white) messages that creep through.

We have serious cases of discrimination, assumed reasonable by faculties, that work against boys in sports and engineering. They do this through affirmative action like policies by limiting the number males permitted to participate. They also provide excess programs and scholarships designed to only benefit females and people of color. It's illegal if provided by the government, but not illegal for corporations and companies to support specific races, genders and religions. High school is where kids get their first real taste of this.

Zero tolerance policies, while seeming like an obvious solution, do more to limit a child's ability to react and protect themselves in situation involving bullies and has almost no effect against the instigators in the first place. The child's perception is that if they are getting their ass kicked, they must take the ass kicking because fighting back will get them expelled.

In some cases, professors will threaten to expel all participants in any form of fight. This was the case for my high school back in 2001, Santana high, where I got someone else's blood all over my shirt thanks to some kid who blamed his choices on bullying. The teachers told us that if you get punched, you get expelled, because it always takes 2 to tango. It was their go-to phrase and expressed by many of the teachers there. Now this kid was a sexual loser, but I do believe that this policy played a major role in his decision. The perception for the kid is that you're going to get punished no matter what. The bullies will retaliate, or you will get expelled. Mix that with being a desperate pussy, caused by the feminizing of campus culture, and I wouldn't be surprised that their solution was to kill everyone.

The reason all this feminine shit is dominating is because the people with delusional feels were the people actively making changes. When the great meme war hit, reversed changes happened and here we are today with a beautiful sun-colored president. The methods for resolving these problems are already laid out for us in recent history.

Prior to around the 1960s-1970s, the problem students that commit these crimes would have been identified very early and indefinitely institutionalized in mental health facilities where they would quietly pass away their lives without harming the outside public.

Progressives won the day, however, when they convinced society and politicians that it is inhumane to institutionalize and so these types of dangerous individuals now are "mainstreamed" into public schools where they are ruthlessly bullied by normal children. They use to be given straight jackets, lobotomies, and were stuffed into rubber walled rooms. Now they are given Pharmaceuticals and IEPs and placed into the classroom where they disrupt learning and, in the darkest cases, kill people.

[–]BobBaratheonsBastard 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I think there some decent points in your arguments but I think they all can be thwarted by not allowing anyone under 21 to buy guns. These kids have raging hormones and a large amount of people on RP find it after high school. Expecting some kid with raging hormones to think rationally is a tough sell. Just don’t let HS aged kids buy guns and the problem is at least minimalized if not solved. Adults can buy however many guns they want and do with them as they please. A HS senior however, should not be trusted with guns unless he has gone through thorough and proper training ala the military. It’s not rocket science, everyone just wants to act like it is. Kids can still get hunting licenses and hunt with their parents and learn how to shoot, but they should NOT be able to buy an AR that young. It is begging for trouble.

[–]imheregonow004 1 point2 points  (1 child)

You were sort of right till it went all wrong. You cannot blame society hating manliness for this. It becomes too complex. It's easy, it's due to lack of gun control. No other country on western world suffers from this. But it's true that only the losers of the society end up doing heinous acts such as these which makes no sense really. And to make it even simpler, it's down to the government. It's allowing people to get away with it, so they will keep trying.

[–]Rian_Stone 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I only say that because of the large amount of single moms now. IT's at the point where you may need to account for actual parents, and not the other way around

[–]Senior EndorsedMattyAnon 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Right. I want the data first so we can tease out causation. I've seen a few articles that say the vast majority of these shootings are from kids without a father figure, but not enough to be credible alone.

Then (if correlation found), we have to ask whether it's lack of male father figure that's the problem (as generally assumed on here), or whether it's women who cause fathers to leave that then have a destructive influence on male children (seems plausible). And that sort of thing is really hard to pull out of the data.

I look forward to the news article that says "fathers are good for society". I'm being ironic of course...

Two students. Student A has a biological issue that makes Student A incompatible with student life. That issue is mental illness.

Student B has a biological issue that makes Student B incompatible with student life. That issue is a screaming baby that has to be taken care of.

Student A is tossed out on his ass. He has now been expelled from school, so his life is basically over. He'll never find a decent job, which mean she'll never have a decent girl.

Student B is piled high with public money. Public housing, free food, free health care, free money in some states.

And then these women scream that we need to take away guns from everyone because who can tell if student A is going to blow up.

I have a different solution. Throw student B on the street and pile student A with free money. Problem solved.

[–]BurnoutRS 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I pracrically wrote this same post in my head today when I saw the news. More or less. Its funny how I never understood school shootings until today. The world, when viewed through an RP lens often makes so much sense, so Immediately.

I saw the pictures of his victims and immediately Identified them as the Highschool Chad types. They were all smiling and confident looking in their pictures. These were the asholes who mistreated women, these were the guys the shooter both envied and loathed at the same time.

Then they showed pictures of the female victims. They were the girls who blew him off, wouldnt give him the time of day or when they did it was to call him creepy or friendzone him.

Then I saw the shooter. For a moment, all I could feel was pity. He threw his entire life away. Ultimately its his fault and he has to be held accountable for what he did, but, can the blame be placed entirely on him? At what point is a person supposed to be in charge of their own life? Especially In a world where people arent taught to have any.sort of agency.

The ideas that "youre fine the way you are, be yourself, dont change" also fit nicely with the idea that "people are the way they are, they cant help it". I mean, how many can agree that before TRP, before ever being introduced to the idea that you could change yourself (whether through TRP or otherwise) that it seemed as though people just were what they were? The guys who got the girls were just born like that.

I have been walked through the idea of self discovery so many times. I assure you if I had continuing following the path, trying to stumble on to who I was and hoping that once I did everything would fall into place, I'd still be just as lost. You have to make yourself into the person you want to be. You get to choose. It's of the utmost importance that we get kids to understand this.

I mean, look at the culutre of victimhood in western civiliaztion. All of these people who dont realize that they are victims because they willfully chose to be one. They decided "hey all I have to do is figure out how opressed I am, and then collect what im owed for the injustice". You assume the position and bend society to your will. You start seeing more and more how the system is working against you because thats all youve taught yourself to see.

Could it be the media over publicizing these events?

They should have just blown him there with the gun in his hands and locked him up after.

I didn't read this whole dissertation nor watch the media coverage, but I'm assuming it was a fat ugly autistic male virgin. Would be good incentive to not murder a school full of students.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Most likely sexual ostracisation is a key factor here. However guns and violence in media and bad parenting are probably involved as well. Keep in mind at least some of these school shootings were racially motivated. But sexual ostracisation and social isolation (two things that are obviously related) are big problems and society needs to address that by promoting kids self-improvement. Teaching adolescent men to lift, how to talk to women, how to groom, etc. All of these are things that would help men get the success they crave. The other thing is 'too many men'.

Since women are naturally hypergamous, it doesn't help that 49% of the population are male. Not that we can do much about it and I'm not saying this is the solution but let's say if the government introduced mandatory screening through IVF treatment and there were less men, then there'd be less competition for women and men's sexual market value would increase. If there were was a 20:80 male to female ratio, women would be all over the few men left (it would not even be necessary to force marital arrangements for women would choose most men voluntarily). These few men would have extremely powerful, high status positions and most likely would be polygynous. Women have been shown to be much more content with polygynous arrangements than men have been shown with the converse (polyandry).

That's because socially it's frowned upon, and seen as weak, beta male behaviour for a man to share his wife with other men. However, women are more likely to be content with what is traditionally seen as a feminine role . So yeah, our main problem as a society is, we don't teach young men self-improvement (and for that matter helping women keep in shape as well and facilitating them in their natural domestic roles) and we have waay to many men. Our society is just a big sausage fest and a big part of what leads to wars and violent assault against other men as well as school shootings and other social issues.
