The Red Pill for LGBTQs

This post was originally published at therationalqueer.wordpress.com.

As an individual who is both a red pill sympathizer and a queer man, I find myself in the almost unique position to subject non-heteronormative relations to red pill scrutiny. This subject has been on my mind for a while, but I haven’t had the time to start a blog until now (and if history is a guide, I will probably make two or three posts and then vanish for months!). It is obviously a play off of The Rational Male, to anyone familiar with the manosphere. Red pill concepts didn’t crystallize for me until I read Rollo’s blog, and despite some of his [mostly orthographic] shortcomings, I find him to be by far the most coherent and impactful of manosphere writers. Further, it’s actually a complete coincidence that I open this blog mere days after his Homosexuality post. Perhaps I should take that as an omen of good luck! At any rate, if you’re interested in these topics, please subscribe! …the posts are a-comin’.

First Post and Introduction

This post was originally published at liberateandconserve.wordpress.com.

I’ve found that my thoughts and beliefs become more vibrant and real (and I daresay more organized and rationally sound), when I write them down. And since I’m going to write them down, why not share them with the world?

I do not identify as either a liberal or a conservative–nor, perhaps surprisingly, as a libertarian, but that’s a topic for another post. My purpose in this blog is to identify and dissect liberal and conservative attitudes, understand how they behave in the ecosystem of American society, and how they are affected by changing beliefs. I am interested in primarily American society, since that is the one I am most familiar with and since it provides plenty of fodder for discussion. I am also only interested in modern society. Modern and past uses of the terms “liberal” and “conservative” are not coextensive, and I don’t think it is useful for my purposes to dissect those differences. My goal is to enlighten both myself and the reader as to the interactions between widespread beliefs, values, and policies as they play out today on American soil.
