Ladies, have you met a redpilled man before? If yes, how did you deal with him? Did he manage to hurt you?

My first time meeting a redpilled man was in college. He was extremely insecure but he loved dominating others in discussion and saying offensive things to his female classmates while framing it as "a joke". He also loved bullying women who didn't abide by regular caricatures of femininity. He regularly posted antifeminist quotes/jokes on his social media.

He didn't attend lectures made by women and always attended ones taught by men. He tried negging me multiple times and told me once "You can't negotiate Attraction" (Eww) After I told him that I wanted a partner who has similar views on life like me.

Long story short, I blocked him off social media and stopped talking to him because his toxicity got way out of hand. At that time, I thought I was sensitive and making a big deal out of it. However, now I realize that I did the right thing and that I wouldn't waste a breath while interacting with a man who I suspect believes in that bullshit.

I would appreciate it if you could share your thoughts on your impression about these men in the past vs the view you have of them now.

Edit: I acknowledge that "redpilled" could mean being enlightened to the truth of reality, which is unrelated to the manosphere, but here I used it to signify a man who follows and believes in harmful and sexist stereotypes about women and men alike and who engages in behavior encouraged by the "redpill" community made for men.

Edit: This the first time my post blew up! Thank you so much for the awards and comments!

Edit Some of your stories may describe men who are misogynistic and who do not consider themselves as "redpillers". However, your stories are welcomed as there is a great overlap between misogyny and manosphere redpill.

Why is living at home with parents the ultimate deal breaker when dating?

I live at home with my parents currently. I live in a very high cost of living area, and it makes zero sense to me to throw away $1,700 a month for a drywall shitbox 1 bedroom apartment when I could just save that money. (That's the starting cost in my city. That will get you a 1 bedroom that smells like crystal meth).

What's the point of me spending that much cash just to move 2 blocks down from my parents house?

There were over 40 million unemployment claims in 2020. I am confident to say the economy isn't really stable right now. Why sign a year lease and be on the hook if I don't have to?

If I'm working full time, with no debt, and take care of my health and am otherwise a good person, why should I immediately be dismissed just because I'm choosing to save money instead of giving it to some landlord?

I've lived with 10ish roommates throughout college and early 20s. I don't want to go back to that life of having some idiot blarring the stereo at 2 am. My parents are at least quiet. Their house is at least very comfortable.

I have no idea what the point of my post is, but yeah. I swear I could have 2 felonies and murdered 30 people...and that would be less of a deal breaker than me living at home with my parents it seems.

The odd thing is: I went out on a few dates with this one girl who has $70,000 in student loan debt. I don't think she makes much money currently, and she broke it off since I live at home still.

"You're really nice, but I'm looking for someone further along in life."

I am further along in life. I don't have $70,000 in debt like you do.

I feel like Riot doesn't understand the power fantasy for tanks. I don't pick tanks to deal damage, I pick them to be super beefy front line.

I don't know about the other tank players out there, but as someone who traditionally is a big fan of playing tanks (Zac, Sejuani, Rammus etc.), this season's felt a little weird. I can build Sunfire Aegis and get a ton of damage and CDR... great... in the mid game there's a period of time where I can pretty much 100-0 squishy champions in my cc rotation, but once my damage falls off I just feel like paper. A lot of tank legendary items feel so much worse to build than their old counterparts (ie. Randuins) and especially MR itemization is a god damn disaster. If the enemy has an AP mage building Liandry's it feels like you need 2 dedicated MR items just to tank 1 champion's damage alone.

It's weird that champions like Aatrox, Olaf, Renekton can genuinely fulfill my role--that is soaking damage--better than I can.

Do any other tank players feel the same way this season, or is it just me?

Edit: Sort of a late edit, but a lot of people took this post to the extreme and interpreted it as wanting tanks to do 0 damage and become literally unkillable. Don't take these numbers seriously, it's just an example for sake of argument, but: if they did -20% damage and +20% tankyness, would they do so little damage that you could walk past them and ignore them? Generally my biggest complaint is to the itemization changes to tanks. A lot of stats were removed from popular tank items (ie. Abyssal Mask, Randuins HP, FH armor, Dead Man's armor) or popular items were removed altogether from our pool (Locket, Adaptive Helm).

We need to quit acting like IUD's and birth control pills are super easy and no big deal. For many women IUD insertion is EXTREMELY painful. Some get worse cramps and complications. For many women, birth control pills cause all sorts of terrible side effects. Female BC has risks.

I'm tired of seeing guys on Reddit and Quora and in real life, stating things like, "Well if that woman would have just gotten an IUD" when she had an unplanned pregnancy, or "They need to provide free IUD's and better education" in countries where many poor people have pregnancies..

Firstly- poor people should be allowed to have babies too.

Secondly-- yes, I support the idea of education and free IUD's and birth control-- but female BC is not just some super easy thing and there is a problem of this being pushed on people. It's not fair to push the problem of systemic poverty and population control solely onto women by pushing them to take the pill and get IUDs. Plus we are constantly told that IUD's and birth control pills are super easy and painless and have no side effects-- and this is a lie. We need honestly from our doctors. Many women have some kind of side effect to birth control pills and this information is still skewed and dishonest. It's so hard to find research regarding mental health and birth control pills. Some studies suggest birth control is strongly correlated to depression, but even with this information, people never want to acknowledge it. They just want to keep women in charge of birth control and not support men's right to birth control. Hey, why aren't there MRA's out there fighting for more male birth control options? hmmm.. I wonder...

Also- IUD's aren't just like, wha bam, super easy breezy. Some women say they barely felt it, but many women say that insertion was extremely painful, some say even the most painful thing they've ever experienced.

I'm tried of the burden of birth control being forced only on women. We need to share this burden with men. Women tend to keep their struggles and pain regarding their female body parts, including trans women who get monthly cramps and PMS type symptoms from hormones. So when we get all these side effects we usually keep it to ourselves and collectively so. We are told our complaints are nothing. We tell our doctors and they shrug in our faces.

You can read here of women complaining about IUD insertion. What's even more sad is we are told pain is so rare and unusual, so they don't even regularly give the pill suppository to soften the cervix the day before, to make insertion easier. They should obviously give it to everyone: [https://www.reddit.com/r/endometriosis/comments/kf4ejh/is_mirena_iud_removal_as_painful_as_insertion/](https://www.reddit.com/r/endometriosis/comments/

YSK: If someone commits a trivial mistake in their English, it’s not a big deal and doesn’t form the basis to invalidate their point

Why YSK: People often ridicule the grammatical or other mistakes in people’s English to invalidate their point. Chances are they noticed it too and simply don’t care. Their point still stands stall if it’s coherent enough, anyone going out of the way to comment on their mistake is either losing the argument or are too immature to engage in one.

It’s very common in the Indian subcontinent.

Edit: About time I made an edit to have my final say and leave. I personally love English and it's not even my mother tongue. It is, for me, the most beautiful language ever and I want to be as good at it as I can. I made this post because a lot of non-native speakers out there are ridiculed everyday for bad, incorrect English. While it is important to speak the language you're speaking as correctly as possible, for some it may not matter so much because they don't need it anywhere in their life. Also, one should always look for when is one helpfully correcting your mistakes so you may learn and appreciate them. Enough preaching. Over and out.

Several centuries ago, the Pope decreed that all the Jews had to convert to Catholicism or leave Italy. There was a huge outcry from the Jewish community, so the Pope offered a deal. He'd have a religious debate with the leader of the Jewish community...

If the Jews won, they could stay in Italy; if the Pope won, they'd have to convert or leave.

The Jewish people met and picked an aged and wise Rabbi to represent them in the debate.

However, as the Rabbi spoke no Italian, and the Pope spoke no Hebrew, they agreed that it would be a 'silent' debate.

On the chosen day, the Pope and the Rabbi sat opposite each other.

The Pope raised his hand and showed three fingers.

The Rabbi looked back and raised one finger.

Next, the Pope waved his finger around his head.

The Rabbi pointed to the ground where he sat.

The Pope brought out a communion wafer and a chalice of wine.

The Rabbi pulled out an apple.

With that, the Pope stood up and declared himself beaten and said that the Rabbi was too clever.

The Jews could stay in Italy!

Later the cardinals met with the Pope and asked him what had happened.

The Pope said, "First I held up three fingers to represent the Trinity. He responded by holding up a single finger to remind me there is still only one God common to both our beliefs. Then, I waved my finger around my head to show him that God was all around us. He responded by pointing to the ground to show that God was also right here with us. Finally, I pulled out the wine and wafer to show that God absolves us of all our sins. He pulled out an apple to remind me of the original sin. He bested me at every move and I could not continue!"

Meanwhile, the Jewish community gathered to ask the Rabbi how he had won.

"I don't have a clue!!!" the Rabbi said.

"First, he told me that we had three days to get out of Italy, so I gave him the finger. Then he tells me that the whole country would be cleared of Jews, so I told him that we were staying right here."

"And then what?" asked a woman.

"Who knows!!" said the Rabbi. "He took out his lunch, so I took out mine!"

AITA for not thinking the joke my family played on my GF was a big deal?

I (25M) have a girlfriend (23F) who is absolutely beautiful, but she does have a large facial scar. My family often jokes about it, they have a super dark sense of humor. It bothers my girlfriend, and she says it doesn’t feel like a joke, it feels like she’s being insulted under the pretense of it being dark humor. Even though I explain it’s just how they are and they don’t mean any harm, she doesn’t really want to be around them. I told her it was really important to me we spend Christmas with my family, we would all quarantine first and test but it was important to me. She resisted at first, but after some urging from me she gave in. She said I absolutely could not excuse their behavior if they made a rude comment about her though.

We got there and it was fine for a while. Then my mom and sister broke out their matching ugly sweaters, that had my girlfriends face all over it. They both laughed, saying my mom made them (screen printed) and it was just a joke. My dad thought it was hilarious, I even chuckled a little because she’s really beautiful, so it was ironic they put her on the β€œugly” sweater. My girlfriend looked at me, and when I said they were just being ironic, she shook her head, got up and left. Didn’t say anything to anyone, just took her car and left.

I called her several times, and she didn’t answer. The only text I received was β€œYou need to find your own way home.” That pissed me off, and I called her a couple more times. The whole time, my mom is upset because it was just a joke and she didn’t realize my girlfriend was going to overreact like that. I told her that a warning would have been nice, but my sister agreed it was just a joke and my girlfriend was being a baby about it.

I had another fight with my girlfriend when I finally got home and she said I was an asshole for putting her in that situation and I said I didn’t realize they were going to do that and they were being ironic because she was beautiful. She said I let them treat her badly and was trying to make it her fault when it was my family who was acting badly. I said it was just a joke and that she was overreacting. She asked how it was supposed to be a joke. I said that was just their sense of humor. I said I was sorry she was offended by the joke, but she ruined the whole day with her reaction. She said that no, them realizing she wasn’t going to take their bullshit anymore ruined the day.

You won't pay $100 for a new hard drive? Okay, enjoy paying $22k for my time to deal with the problem.

I had a job where I had a computer which was, incidentally, also the web server for a very important internal web application. I thought this was really stupid that it wasn't in a server room being managed by IT, but for some weird reason they wouldn't do it. I didn't use this application or have anything to do with it, but it took up a large chunk of the hard drive and made it slow. (I didn't even know what it was on the hard drive, so there was a bunch of old development software I could never remove for fear of harming the application.) I was also not permitted to turn the machine off or even sign out nights or weekends so it would be running whenever anyone needed the application, I had to just lock the screen and leave it.

This application was apparently something developed by my department before I joined the company, and everyone involved with it was no longer there, and nobody really knew anything about how it worked other than that this machine had to be running and signed in and it wasn't developed in our normal system and wasn't in our code repository. By the end of my time with the company, they'd had such turnover that I was literally the only person in the department who knew it was even there.

I was a web developer and I required a vast amount of disk space for my work, for reasons mostly relating to how moronic management was about process. (I had to keep 3 complete copies of everything the company ever developed.) I often ran out of disk space. I had to use increasingly desperate measures to deal with this, up to and including deleting anything that Microsoft included with Windows that I didn't actually need (like the camera app on a PC with no camera).

It quickly got to the point that I had to call IT to tell them my PC was becoming unusable due to disk space and could they please do something about it, and suggested that because of this application they might want to take this PC into management and give me a different one. I thought they would do something like replace the computer (identical would be fine as long as it didn't have this application on it) or give it a larger internal disk or maybe even just attach an external disk (I would still have a slow machine but I'd have had the space to do my work), but they told me that I'd have to remove what I could and defrag the disk to make more space and I would just have to suffer and please don't call them about this again. I talked to my boss and was told that IT's word was final

So some fungus species can create zombies and control their minds. No big deal.
