No, The Psychopathic Edge is not an unflattering nickname for the guitarist in U2. The guy who goes by this moniker is a pickup guru with several self-published books to his name and more than three times the number of Twitter followers than I have.
Bad news, Red Pillers: Not only are fat women flooding the sexual marketplace in the US — they’re actually making mediocre women who aren’t fat look better by comparison. At least according to one Red Pill Redditor.
As I noted not long ago, the Ask The Red Pill subreddit has locked itself down and moved to a new non-Reddit address. But the old posts are all still there, and this little blast from 11 days in the past is pretty much guaranteed to creep you out. Even if you have to read it twice before it starts to make sense.
Last night, I sent my browser to a familiar place — the often comical Ask The Red Pill subreddit — only to discover a ghost town. The threads had been locked down — no more replies possible — and a note stickied to the top of the page reported that “We have moved to Forums.Red – Posting here is locked.” Clicking on the link sends you to the new location, which at the moment seems as much of a ghost town as the original.
New, or just new to me? I don’t think I’ve seen this particular theory before. From the AskTheRedPill subreddit, which is pretty much always wrong about everything:
One favorite technique in the pickup artist’s toolbox is the “neg,” a sort of playful backhanded complement that’s very near an insult; it’s intended to amuse your date but also to dig a little into her self-esteem even as she laughs it off. “Great nails — are they real?” That’s the basic idea.
If we can take them at their word, Red Pill pickup artists are sometimes so successful at wooing the ladies that they don’t quite know what to do with their magical seduction powers.
Awful news for the Red Pill community: One of its members slipped up and said some nice things to one of the women he’s seeing — things that might actually make her feel a little better about herself. Now he’s terrified she might think he’s a beta or, even worse, some sort of simp.
Red Pill dudes, or at least a significant chunk of them, are utterly terrified that they might accidentally show some affection to a woman.
I thought that Reddit’s Red Pillers were all about conning women into bed. But some, it seems, are more interested in debating than dating.
