Hipsters and the Red Pill

The "Godfather of Hipsterdom" doubles down - Feminism makes women miserable:
Gavin McInnes, co-founder of Vice and often described as “The Godfather of Hipsterdom,” kicked a hornets nest this week by suggesting that modern feminism has been detrimental to women.
“We’ve trivialized childbirth and being domestic so much that women are forced to pretend to be men. They’re feigning this toughness. They’re miserable,” McInnes said in part during a contentious and expletive-laced exchange on a HuffPost Live panel on Monday.
 Have you noticed that about the Junior Volunteer Thought Police? They have unfailingly foul mouths and the sense of humor of a Sigmarite Witch Hunter from the Warhammer series. McInnes is right on here. Feminism is a misnomer as feminists tend to despise the feminine vocation of child rearing and domesticity. They become dried up old ball busters who spend their peak beauty and fertility years pursuing a marketing career at the local cheese firm. In their late twenties or early thirties they panic as the wall looms over the horizon. They get down off of the carousel of Alpha bad boys and desperately try to lock down a Beta provider before it's too late.
McInnes said that the real reason his comments set off such a firestorm is that “deep down” women realize what he said is true.
“I think a lot of women smash through the ‘glass ceiling’ and get to where [men] are and they go, ‘wait a minute, I thought you guys had brandy and went to strip clubs, you’re going over expense reports?’ And they see their friends from their small town with 3 kids going to soccer practice and they think, ‘That looks kind of cool, actually.’
It can be deeply unpleasant for a man to work in an office environment that is predominantly female or worse still, to work for a female boss. Women tend to believe that in order to get ahead in the working world, they need to be more like men. It's impossible for them to provide true masculine leadership so they lurch to one extreme or the other: either they become blustering bullies or insufferably catty. The solution here is for them to cultivate true feminine leadership. Women can absolutely be leaders, but not in the way that men are leaders.
“I see a lot of women without kids, in their 40s, who are miserable and I see a lot of women after they have children saying, ‘what the fuck was I doing? Why was I doing fashion PR? I was doing seating plans for a fashion show telling what people sit in what chair. Now I’m shaping human life,’ he explained.
“It made me religious. I was an atheist most of my life and now I am a God-fearing Catholic, because of the miracle of life. And I’m pro-life,” he said, noting that he used to be pro-choice and became pro-life with the birth of his first child.
Good on you sir.

On the flip side, McInnes said that men have become less masculine, ironically as a means to get more women.
“I think men are becoming beta males because feminists have told them to, but you’ll notice feminists don’t fuck those guys,” he said. “I think they are doing this and being submissive…because they are trying to get laid.
Gavin McInnes may be the Godfather of Hipsterdom but he's sounding very Red Pill here. One of the rules of Game is never pay attention to what women say they want, but to what they actually do. Women may say they want a submissive nice guy who does his fair share of the house work, but do they actually date guys like that? To ask is to answer.
“If women said men who dress in clown costumes are hot and cool, then they would fuckin’ stick a red nose on.”
lolzozozolol. And the more those guys slavishly cater to their woman's every whim, the more frustrated she grows. Neither can articulate it, exactly, but she just feels vaguely angry over her man relinquishing the lead. Don't believe me? Try it out gentlemen. Become completely passive in the relationship. Let her make all the decisions. When she gives an order, snap to. The relationship will die within a month or two. I recommend against trying this if you're married though. I'd hate to be responsible for you getting divorce raped.
He went on to lament the current trend in media, which finds sitcom father figures the idiot of the family.
“If it gets a laugh fine, but we all have to check ourselves and go: ‘How about some reverence, for a change?’ We revere single moms and we revere drug dealers like Jay Z — how about we revere the people who put on food on the table? Even that Huff Post Live thing — We are sitting there shitting on macho men while using their microphone that they invented and the infrastructure they created. Arianna Huffington is only rich because of her man entrepreneur husband.”
I like this guy a lot. I especially like it when RealTalk manages to penetrate the Cathedral's defenses and lay the smack down upon the candy asses of the Junior Volunteer Thought Police. McInnes has demonstrated the correct strategy when the Cathedral has you in its sights: double down. Stick to your guns. Agree and amplify. Dare them to do something about it. Above all, never ever apologize. I am, perhaps, more optimistic than many writers from the manosphere or the Dark Enlightenment in that I believe reality will always out. Maybe not in my lifetime. But counter-revolutionary guerrilla warfare is fun.

He touches on an important truth here. For decades, the father of the family has been the butt of jokes in television shows. He's the bumbling fool whom the wife must always lead. In contrast, how often do we see single mothers portrayed in anything other than the halo of sainthood? Or, say a gay or lesbian couple portrayed as enjoying anything less than pure domestic bliss?

If any other readers or writers of the manosphere or Dark Enlightenment read my words, I would ask us all to consider this. It's good to put systematic treatises on the internet. But if we want to see the culture peacefully shift back to benevolent patriarchy, we must conquer the arts and the media as the Cathedral did. That's going to be the work of a lifetime. Maybe generations. But we'll have a hell of a lot more fun doing it than progressives have maintaining the spoils of their victory.


  1. Check out filmmaker Wes Anderson's work. He's a hipster icon, too. And he's red pill, at least in some of his more recent work that I've seen, ie, Fantastic Mr Fox and Moonrise Kingdom.

  2. I have just downloaded iStripper, so I can watch the sexiest virtual strippers on my taskbar.
