On the term red pill

“We women like nice guys! We don’t like jerks!”

When I first encountered the term “red pill” in the context of Game and anti-feminism, I rolled my eyes. It seemed sophomoric and trite.

I’ve since done a 180 on this term.

Its reference to The Matrix succinctly captures the idea of being lied to, incessantly, about everything, all the time.
