Salon made the mistake of actually extensively quoting Red Pill memes, particularly:
alpha fux, beta bux
and then explaining it!
“In Praise of the ‘Beta Male,’” when a reader wrote to tell me that I was inadvertently supporting the “alpha fux beta bux” argument. I don’t think that’s true, although I can see why he believes that: I wrote about how I’d ended up with a nice guy after years of casual dating and flings. If you’re already convinced of the “alpha fux beta bux” maxim, you’re likely to see my settling down as a desperate ploy to attach my pathetic, aging self to a beta provider.
I’m pretty sure this is our own Hipster Racist quoted here:
“Feminism, liberalism and modern egalitarian delusion means that you’ve been brainwashed and that eternal truths about women, formerly known to men and taught to them by their fathers or by friends, are now hidden. This is why you must take ‘red pill.’ The modern totalitarianism depends on you being dominated and scammed by women.” What are these eternal truths about women, you might ask? He quotes German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer: ”Women in truth exist entirely for the propagation of the race, and their destiny ends here, they live more for the species than for the individual, and in their hearts take the affairs of the species more seriously than those of the individual. This gives to their whole being and character a certain frivolousness, and altogether a certain tendency which is fundamentally different from that of man; and this it is which develops that discord in married life which is so prevalent and almost the normal state.”
Salon has inadvertently offered the Red Pill to fence sitting Salon readers.
