Red Pill and Fiction: Harry Potter edition

J. K. Rowling has lots of mail from young female fans with crushes on Draco Malfoy.

Rowling writes how she’s often forced to crush the dreams of fans who nurse strange feelings for Hogwarts’s sexiest Slytherin. “Draco remains a person of dubious morality in the seven published books, and I have often had cause to remark on how unnerved I have been by the number of girls who fell for this particular fictional character,” she writes. “All this has left me in the unenviable position of pouring cold common sense on ardent readers’ daydreams, as I told them, rather severely, that Draco was not concealing a heart of gold under all that sneering…”

And from The Telegraph:

On Facebook, Draco Malfoy has a number of dedicated fan pages, including Draco Malfoy Lovers, which has 1421 members.

And here, we read that

Rowling added that girls should heed those common warnings – bad boys can’t be changed, and least of all by you. “Draco has all the dark glamour of the anti-hero; girls are very apt to romanticise such people,” she continued.

Jerks, Nice Guys, and Female Self-Awareness: An Example

At the fiction-related web site www dot fantasybooklane dot com the proprietress, Erica, has a book review of the novel Stones and Finger Bones by Jessica Minyard.

In the review she writes,

The only thing truly marring this otherwise excellent story is that the heroine is predictably stricken with Stockholm Syndrome. Why oh why do so many fantasy females fall in love with their captors? I’d rather she fell in love with a frog, or anything, anyone, anywhere. I wish authors would stop doing this. I knew it was coming, but I hoped beyond hope that Ms. Minyard would surprise me. Unfortunately, she did not.

Now as soon as I read this, of course, I had to roll my eyes, snort, and shake my head ruefully, as well as display many other physical signs of weary but amused exasperation. How can women be so clueless about themselves? Women love men who are powerful and amoral. Of course abducted chicks are going to suffer from Stockholm Syndrome, and of course women are going to fantasize about that and include it as a story element. This level of cluelessness on the part of the reviewer was stupid enough. But wait! There’s more! The review continues,

If it hadn’t been for all the evil magic, I probably would have stopped reading.
Now for the dark magic. My favorite character was the evil one, Marel, because he is so wonderfully evil. He summons dark spirits to help him gain the throne, and why not? I love a good villain, and he fit the bill nicely.

Yes, really! She just wrote a paragraph lamenting the woman falling for her captor, and then she followed it with that! “I love a good villain” indeed. My goodness. Sometimes the lack of self-awareness or any kind of introspection or self-monitoring by females is astounding.

Just to make sure the point is clear, she next writes this:

I did not care for lead male Rycen. He is nothing special just your typical fantasy hot guy.

In other words, loves the villain; is bored by the good guy. Women, repeat after me: “We women like nice guys; we don’t jerks. We like nice guys; we don’t like jerks…” LOL.

For anyone who wants to read the entire review, it’s in the fantasybooklane site’s Archives for March 2015.

Red-pill classic quotes, Part 1

The past is a gold mine of red-pill truth.

E.g., Nietzsche, Beyond Good & Evil (Walter Kaufman’s translation):

Epigram 84:
Woman learns to hate to the extent to which her charms—decrease.

Quite. Most psychotic feminists who hate the world in general, and men in particular, are ugly (this includes fat of course, fat being a special case of ugliness).

Epigram 131:
Man likes woman peaceful – but woman is essentially unpeaceful, like a cat, however well she may have trained herself to seem peacable.

This quote identifies one kind of what we now call drama queenery (queenage?) and shit testing. Woman is restless when there is no strife. She feels that she is being unjustly suffocated; some bastard is forcing boredom upon her.

This personality feature is evolutionarily advantageous for females because it encourages them to create strife. Obviously, that’s a variety of shit test. Thus they find out who are the strong men and who are the weak ones.

In revenge and in love woman is more barbarous than man.

Of course, Nietzsche wasn’t the first to note this. “Hell hath no fury…”

Even when the Old School stuff isn’t true, it sure is refreshing to read things that you Just Don’t Say these days. A case in point, where alas, I must disagree with ol’ Fred:

When a woman has scholarly inclinations it usually means there is something wrong with her sexually.

I may be biased because I dig on intellectual chicks. I love how politically incorrect this one is, though.

Alt-Right dudes might harsh me for this, but to a large extent that’s because many of them have unfortunately fallen for the lie – deliberately created by feminists, of course – that “intellectual chick” essentially means “feminist.” Gaaahhh! Why does anyone fall for this when feminists not only are morons, but in fact explicitly reject logic as a white male rhetorical trap?

So I’d better clarify that by “intellectual chick” I actually mean “intellectual chick.” There aren’t a lot of them, but there’s something about them. And damn they’re good in bed. My theory: Too much time in the library ➞ Need to cut loose.

Woman would not have the genius for finery if she did not have an instinct for a secondary role.

Wow. Awesome. Even in the 1880s, that may have been somewhat un-PC.

From old Florentine novels; also—from life: “Buona femmina e mala femmina vuol bastone.”

(The Italian: “Good women and bad women want a stick.”)

By the way, you know who else is a really good source of politically incorrect quotes? Women. Get three beers in them, then get them talking.

There are plenty of chicks who would object furiously to the foregoing quote, but get a couple of beers in them and it’s “I need it! My body needs it!”

From Thus Spake Zarathustra (Hollingdale trans.):

As I went on my way alone to-day, at the hour when the sun declineth, there met me an old woman, and she spake thus unto my soul:

“Much hath Zarathustra spoken also to us women, but never spake he unto us concerning woman.”

And I answered her: “Concerning woman, one should only talk unto men.”

Well, of course. You can’t discuss with women the topic of how to handle women. That would be like telling the enemy how you plan on defeating them in an upcoming battle. Men and women aren’t enemies, exactly, but there is a certain amount of adversariality.

Aside from that, there’s the general futility and counterproductivity of discussing women with women. At best they’ll be balky and annoying, and at worst they’ll either flip out or fill your head with outrageous lies. (“We like nice guys!”) Women, as I am hardly the first man to observe, do not handle criticism well. To put it mildly.

(This is called Part 1 because there’s sure to be more in the future.)
