Tag Archive: The Red Pill

The TED talk given by Cassie Jaye. It’s pretty good, as is her film.


Margaret Wente is pointing out some of the ways were society is most definitely slanted to favor women.

There’s a film coming out called, “The Red Pill”, by a former feminist that looks at many of the same complaints from the Men’s Rights Movement. I’ve seen an advanced copy, it’s pretty good.

I think there is a lot of value in finding these areas of society that significantly favor one gender over the other, and asking why – but I also think that one of the main gripes I have with the left’s identity politics is the idea of “privilege”. As a percentage, a people group might be “privileged”, but referring to an individual as such diminishes and dismisses all of the things they had to do for whatever success they’re enjoying – or they may not even be enjoying success, and that term is meant to exclude them from the conversation simply because others in their demographic are enjoying success.
