Two years, two million hits, and a Ph.D in Red Pill Pharmacy

I started this blog on Father’s Day in 2010, with no idea of what was ahead.  My hope then was the same as my hope now, to influence the conversation.  I don’t expect to directly change anyone’s mind, but if I can influence the conversation I can be a part of something larger (along with you), and I do believe it will ultimately change the way people consider the issues we discuss.

Along the way the blog has been both recognized and snubbed, and traffic has grown beyond anything I ever would have imagined.  This time last year I was stunned when the cumulative hit count passed half a million.  A few months ago it passed the two million hit mark.

Recently I was honoured with a degree in Red Pill Pharmacy.  (Thank you University of Man)

Yeah, I know it doesn’t really mean anything, but be honest;  you want one too!

My sincere thanks to everyone who has and continues to contribute to the conversation we are having here.  While the system won’t be changing any time soon, we (in the larger sphere) pose a real threat to the status quo as we challenge corruption and individuals choose to act in their own best interest.

As this is an anniversary of sorts, I present the gift of linkage:

Happy Father’s Day

    Haley: New Boundless blogger to men: “Yep, still your fault.”

    On this, there’s silver linings on all things. At least with the feminist Father’s Day rant talking about how all the ills of the world were because men weren’t stepping up and leading in their homes, at least it gave me several good ideas on the other point that I left for later on the new Boundless Blogger. That is, that I really don’t find any Biblical call for husbands to “lead” their wives, and really just find this as a subtle feminist substitution for the Biblical requirement on wives to submit. It allows wives to make submission into a condition (well if he’s not leading, I can’t submit), as well as confuses the definitions of following and submission. One thing I can say at least with all these things going on is that we’re living in interesting times. Taken as a curse, of course.

  2. Well deserved, outstanding, a benchmark for all who blog on these things. I hope that, while we see much overlap in the posts and comments from blog to blog, we know that some of the individual blogs take tangents and I hope that widens the coverage of the over arching topic.

    In any case, much encouragement from my side sir, and a blessed fathers day to you. A special well wish to those who have children that are in the primary custody of a harpy, where they are somehow ALLOWED to have their kids today for father’s day, and as she stands with that self satisfied look and watches him pull away to take the kids for ice cream of whatever. You guys are in my prayers.

    Happy Father’s Day Dalrock! If it is any help to you, I have been one who has/is been/being influenced by what you’ve written. Rollo got the train moving for me, but you have helped putting it in a Christian perspective. Now if you will excuse me, I will be heading out to visit someone who’s been trying to get me to unplug for years…my pa.

  4. MiGHOW says:

    Congratulations, sir. I think that this blog will only increase in volume as increasing data comes in to support the developing ideological framework and feminism gets a reality check.

    Haley, good posting. Appreciated.

    I think you have influenced many people to think through their assumptions . Being part of the conversation here has influenced my perceptions and thinking for sure, and I’ll be quietly spreading that influence to those I come in contact with in my daily life. Thanks for providing a place where it is possible for a Christian woman to be exposed to these ideas.

    May you have a blessed Father’s Day.

    This blog is at the top of my daily list! Happy Blogiversary and Happy Fathers’ Day to you.

    Happy Father’s Day to you Dalrock and all the other regulars on the blog. I have been lurking for awhile ( 2 years or so ). Why I am posting today is because I was thoroughly disgusted by this morning’s annual “Man-Up” Father’s Day sermon. After the obligatory prayer for men which was given by the “pastor”/”co-pastor” wife – which was insulting by itself – the men get treated to the usual sermon on how the world would be a better place if fathers would just do more for the children, their community, their wives, etc, etc, ad infinitum. The highlight of this “Father’s Day” sermon was a phrase that was repeated not once, not twice, but four times.

    “Children should see their fathers praising their mothers…….because when momma is praised, she’s happy and when momma is happy, everybody is happy”

    Oh and by the way, the Mother’s day message was titled “Mother’s Heart of God”. Go figure.

    [D: Wow. Thanks, and welcome!]

    Congratulations on your blogiversary and Happy Father’s Day.
    Every day I visit I feel like I’m getting an education. Please keep it up. Thank you.

  14. ballista74 says:

    Way to go on the success of your blog!

  15. Country lawyer says:

    “Children should see their fathers praising their mothers…….because when momma is praised, she’s happy and when momma is happy, everybody is happy”

    The horrible thing about this lie is that it is more likely to generate the opposite of the “momma’s happiness” and cause everyone to end up severely unhappy.

    Praise for noteworthy accomplishments is one thing. I seem to remember someone else praising the woman . . . oh, yes it was the serpent.

  16. David says:

    I don’t want to be a downer on Father’s Day and in celebrating Dalrock’s milestone, but I couldn’t let this go and didn’t know where else to put it.

    We passed on any Father’s Day sermons today but opened the Sunday paper to find a story on the front page that brought attention to an insurance site showing the value of a father in comparison to that of a mother. According to their chart, a father is only valued at 1/3 a mother’s worth. If my local paper picked up on it I wonder how many others may have as well just giving further impetus for single motherhood and the disposability of fathers (or men in general).

    What planet are they living on where automotive labor is only $18.54 an hour when the last time I checked the local garage charges $70 an hour. Talk about a skewed assessment.

    Frankly, I’m a bit insulted. Happy Father’s Day indeed.

    Oh i SOOOO want a degree like that! Time to continue posting!

    Awesome work Dalrock, and congratulations. Have been reading you since Mar 2011 and haven’t stopped!

  18. I have a question for people who’s churches use Father’s Day as an opportunity to bash fathers: Why do you attend these churches? Why not leave and look for a church that respects men?

  19. deti says:

    Well done, Dalrock. This is one of the finest blogs in the manosphere, hosted by one of the deepest and most original thinkers and theoreticians in the manosphere.

  20. greenlander says:

    What planet are they living on where automotive labor is only $18.54 an hour when the last time I checked the local garage charges $70 an hour. Talk about a skewed assessment.

    I have no personal experience in auto shops. However, in other service-related industries where I’ve worked (drafting, surveying, etc) where the end customer pays by the hour, the revenue to the firm gets split roughly like this: one-third to overhead, one-third to the employee, and one-third for profit. Most service industries are similar even if the ratios may vary slightly.

    So, if your local shop charges $70 an hour, then the actual mechanic is probably getting about $25… which isn’t THAT far off the estimate of $18.54.

    Having made this wholly off-topic comment, I agree that the sentiment that men’s work is worth one-third of women’s work is wholly off-base. Anyone with a brain can see that men do the substantial majority of actual relevant work (roads, plumbing, internet, programming, fixing stuff, designing stuff, construction) and women’s work is mostly make-work fluff that emerges as a by-product of excess government.

    The soon this all comes to an end the better. I’m looking forward to our own Greek moment. Bring it on.

  21. Hermit says:

    “Why not leave and look for a church that respects men?”

    Our family was sick today (especialy me), so we didn’t attend. I’ve mentioned in the past that my church is better than most, and last year the message was quite good. If my preacher did start telling us to “man up”, especially on Father’s Day, I would visibly and audibly haul the whole family out of there in the middle of sermon, never to return.

  22. Suz says:

    Typical?
    Two years ago I’d have probably said 5. Now I don’t think I’d go above 3. Not because women are all malicious bitches, but because by and large, they simply don’t know any better. The majority of the men and women who tried to teach them “better,” are dead.

  23. Random Angeleno says:

    I attended a different Catholic parish from the one I’m used to. Short homily talking about the importance of fathers as teachers in the home. Nothing about women at all. Nothing that could be considered a denigration of men. Fathers as teachers seemed to imply fathers as leaders to me. Could be a safe way of talking about fathers leading the family? At the end of the homily, he asked all fathers in the audience to stand and gave them a blessing, asking everyone to pray for them. Not a negative message, IMO. Now I have to say I do not know what this particular priest said on Mother’s Day so I’m keeping my rock salt handy, but still…

  24. lavazza1891 says:

    Some fun. A FB friend posted this:

    “Every woman deserves a man that calls her baby, kisses her like he means it, holds her tight like he don’t want to let go, doesn’t make her jealous with other women, instead makes other women jealous of her, is not afraid to let his friends know how he really feels about her, and makes sure she knows how much he loves her.”

    There are so many things wrong with this that I hardly know where to start, so I’ll just take the fact that when every woman has this man it is logically impossible for other women to be jealous of her, since they also have the same thing.

  26. deti says:

    The site hits were at their highest peak in January 2012: right after the Dalrock/Susan Walsh dustup.

  27. greyghost says:

    Looks like you are becoming a cultural leader Dalrock. With Pope cleaning house and kicking femminism out of the roman catholic church he may have to send somebody your way to help them format a family and marriage platform.

  28. AmStrat says:

    ”If women are getting a rapidly worsening reputation, the costs of that will soon follow.”

    A lot of people has said there is no marriage strike, or awakening or even misandry bubble since everyone’s judgment of women’s behavior isn’t 0. However, the truth is, there does not need to be an army of ”we believe women are acting like 0” out there, but that all the 1’s drop to 0, all the 5’s drop to 4 or 3, all the 8’s drop to 7 and all the 10s drop to 9 or 8. Taken together it really IS a huge downfall for women and soon to be a huge drop to women’s power.

  29. greyghost says:

    TFH
    The numbers change with the person making the judgement changes. Suz as an example is a unique woman in that she has a thought about something not being right ( It helped that she has a son) She takes action and looks for answers and finds the manosphere. A couple years of peeling back lies and half truthes will give one red pill awareness and vision. She has also changed in herself you can see it in her comment postings.

  30. Will says:

    I’ve definately noticed a change for the worse in Mens attitude to Women displayed in the comments section of main stream articles in the last year. They can’t all be manosphere commentators so it looks like there is a shift in Mens attitudes to Women occuring.

  31. Elspeth says:

    Happy Father’s Day Dalrock and congratulations on your Red Pill degree.

    ????????????????

  33. goodfoot says:

    The Father’s Day sermon at my church gave me some cause for concern. It was a guest preacher, but he basically parroted the “Happy wife, happy life” and “Man up!” mantras, saying a wife WILL submit if the husband is doing the right things. I’m thankful our real minister “clarified” some things at the end of service. He referenced I Peter 3 where it talks about wives being in subjection even if the husband is not acting godly. I

  34. Suz says:

    greyghost,

    You’re right. I almost mentioned that my view is unusual and somewhat skewed. It’s unusual because I have been mentally at odds with women for most of my life, which is why I would have rated them as low as 5 two years ago, even though I know there are many truly good women in this country It’s skewed because my ingestion of the Red Pill has powerfully reinforced my previous bias.

  35. deti says:

    Empath:

    Dalrock. Doctor of pharmacy. With highest honors.

  36. Great traffic stats dude, congrats on the milestone!

  37. chaz345 says:

    ” Not because women are all malicious bitches, but because by and large, they simply don’t know any better. ”

    THIS is the entire problem in terms of trying to create change. The man/bad woman/good mentality is so much the norm that most women and many men don’t even see it. It’s like, as Empath likes to say, trying to talk to a fish about being wet.

  38. chaz345 says:

    We have a new pastor who wasn’t here yet for mother’s day. Yesterday’s father’s day sermon wasn’t a special one about fathers day though. As a side note though he did say that he’s not particularly a fan of special sermons on those days because of the difference. Because mother’s day is full of affirmation and encouragement but the typical father’s day sermon is about beating men up even more. I’m glad that at least on that point he “gets it” and told him so after the sermon.

  39. chaz345 says:

    @Dalrock,

    Half million after one year and 2 million after two. So at that rate of growth we can expect 8mill at this time next year, right? Keep that up and we will change the system sooner rather than later.

  40. I need to get me one of those diplomas…

    Dalrock, you are quite the thinker and your blog deserves all the traffic that it gets. I like the cut of your jib, sir.

  41. Congratulations, Dr. Dalrock!

  42. Stingray says:

    The following is the blessing that was said to the fathers at our church at the end of Mass:

    God our Father,
    in your wisdom and love you made all things.

    Bless these men,
    that they may be strengthened as Christian fathers.

    Let the example of their faith and love shine forth.

    Grant that we, their sons and daughters,
    may honor them always
    with a spirit of profound respect.

    Grant this through Christ our Lord.
    Amen.

  43. Paul Timo says:

    RE – blessing by Stingray: Hey, I got that one too! Do you also attend a Catholic parish with a masculine priest who works for a non-feminized bishop?

  44. Stingray says:

    Why yes!! I do!

  45. ballista74 says:

    Why not leave and look for a church that respects men?

    Since I was one of them that brought it up, I was evaluating the church in question. Needless to say, it failed due to that reason among others.

  46. sunshinemary says:

    A question – of the Christians in the audience – how many do not in fact attend any church?

  47. Suz says:

    No longer churchgoing here, except I attend Mass when I visit my mom.

  48. an observer says:

    Tfh,

    Cannot name exact point declines. But over two years, the typical eap and afc has dropped so many points, my work colleagues believe me a misanthrope.

    Awkward place to be for a believer.

  49. an observer says:

    Sunshine mary,

    Basically, no.

    It’s complicated. . .
