Why is this blog called “The Black Pill”? Originally, it started out as a blog called OmegaVirginRevolt (which is still evident from the URL), but over time it became clear to me that I had gone beyond a blog called “OmegaVirginRevolt”. The name, “OmegaVirginRevolt”, had outlived its usefulness. When I first started writing as OmegaVirginRevolt, I believed that we were on the verge of the Mens’ Rights Movement (MRM) actually begining to rollback feminism. While I think that is still true, it is taking longer than I thought. That was because there was additional threats to the MRM besides the main enemy of feminism/women. Since around 2009 or so, the biggest such threat to the advancement of the MRM has been what I call The Paleo-Game Cult, an intersection of the paleo diet, conspiracy theory, Roissysphere game, and several other things. (This has also led me to investigate more how feminists are interested in game and how it could be used by feminists to block the advancement of the MRM.)
It became clear to me that taking on The Paleo-Game Cult (and other similar threats to the MRM) was the most important thing that can be done right now for the MRM. These groups are trying to attach themselves and take over the MRM for their own purposes which do not benefit men or advance Mens’ Rights. I wanted to name the blog with a concept that would encompass all of this. Paragon came up with the idea of “The Black Pill”. Lots of people like to use the analogy from the Matrix movies of the “blue pill” and the “red pill”. The “blue pill” represents mainstream feminism which is a delusion whereas the “red pill” is supposed to represent the anti-feminist truth. What has happened with the “red pill” is that the concept has been colonized by the Paleo-Game Cult. The “red pill” instead of meaning anti-feminist truth, now means alternate/non-mainstream delusion that still pedestalizes women. It now means non-mainstream feminism of the Paleo-Game Cult form. Just because something isn’t mainstream like the Paleo-Game Cult does not make it truth or anti-feminist. The “red pills” believe incorrectly that they are anti-feminist, and the delusion that feminism can be solved using personal solutions. They believe that using game and the paleo diet they can expel feminism from their lives. This is a delusion. When Paragon came up with the idea of the “black pill”, he recognized the nature of feminism/women being a systemic problem. Systemic problems have no personal solutions. The “black pill” is about that principle and more. It is about reality as it is and facts. It stands in opposition to both mainstream feminist delusions (the “blue pill”) and non-mainstream feminist delusions (the “red pill”). Disagreeing with the mainstream does not automatically make something truth.
For the record, there are those such as A Voice For Men who still use the “red pill” idea. AVFM does not subscribe to the Paleo-Game Cult delusions and is about reality and facts. Even though it calls itself a “red pill” site, AVFM (and many other true MRM sites that call themselves “red pill” sites) are actually “black pill” sites.
The “black pill” represents the main focus of this blog that provides a true anti-feminist option beyond the mainstream and non-mainstream feminist delusions. Since this is my personal blog, it will also include my personal experiences dealing with feminism and any topic I consider to be related.
