Message heard.

I’ve been deeply moved and humbled by the overwhelming response to my post announcing that I planned on shutting down the blog.  I’ve reconsidered and decided* to leave the blog up but shut down commenting in a few days.

Thank you again for your words of encouragement and your prayers.  Words cannot adequately express my gratitude.  Likewise, you have been and will continue to be in my prayers.

*I don’t know what the future holds so at some point I may have to revisit this question, but for now I plan on leaving the content up.

    Good call.

  2. Adam says:

    Yes, glad that you decided to keep it up. It’s a resource of which you should be well proud.

  3. tteclod says:

    Given time, the blog will decay on its own: there’s no reason to hurry the process.

    Besides, it’ll be good sport to watch and see how long the blog lasts before it’s deemed to truthful to remain a WordPress site.

  4. Mr. Generic says:

    Thank you Dalrock! (My future kids and grand kids thank you as well!)

    Also, I’d like to take the time to thank the *commenters* on this site as well. I’ve read all over, and the commenters here are *consistently* the best, smartest, and most insightful out of any blog or website I have seen. One of the reasons I have commented so rarely myself is because 100% of the time I have nothing to contribute as somebody else already nailed it. Well done!

  5. TJ Martinell says:


    It’s hard to state how important it is that the wisdom and information shared here in your essays and by the commenters over the years be accessible to the public one way or another.

    Time will only tell, but I believe your work has and will continue to inflict a devastating blow against churchianity in the West – and the full effects may not be felt or seen for years.

    If the spiritual Church is to rebuild on a firm foundation it will have to remove not only the feminism of the past 60 years, but centuries of paganism that has infected theological thought and doctrine in the form of courtly love and romance “moralizing” sex. Obviously, this will be no small task, and it will require a generation of men without years of ego investment in either of these concepts capable of eradicating them from churches or starting new ones untarnished by them; ideally, this site will provide them with the education and knowledge they will no doubt require.

  6. Lexet Blog says:

    Have you considered compiling some of your older articles for publication? Would you be open to someone else compiling them for you?

  7. Rusty says:

    Thank you.

  8. Rob says:

    THANK YOU!!! Thanks for leaving the blog available.

  9. steve heller says:

    I’m not even a Christian but I think it would be a shame to lose this resource on marriage and related topics.

  10. thedeti says:

    You might want to delete or password protect some of the more controversial content.

  11. truthinword says:

    I have been reading your blog as an observer since I first met a “church girl” and could tell something was off in the sermons( modern evangelical of course seeped in chivalry and feminine imperative) from what I was reading in scripture that she would drag me to about 6 years ago. This is my first comment ever and would just like to praise you for keeping it up. I want to continue to spread your work along with Rollo, etc to the world. I mean I am out there talking about this stuff in person and sometimes taking a fist to the face for it. I prefer to be an active in the flesh messenger of this much needed content. So once again thank you greatly for all your hard work and dedication to the word and to call out all these fakes howling FI from the pulpits. I actually felt a sense of deep loss when you said you were going to take it down

  12. Random Angeleno says:

    One option to consider: let some other blogger you trust host your archive under an agreement in which you retain ownership of your content. Freeze the comments before the move. Then your blog can go away and you are completely out of the blog maintenance business. That trusted blogger can continue to blog under his name. Then after that transition is done, this part is optional and only if you’re up for it: you could contribute a guest post once in a blue moon.

    My $.02, it’s only a suggestion as to some way to provide continuity for other men who value your content while having an exit for yourself.

    Bon voyage, good sir, it’s been a heck of a ride.

  13. Lexet Blog says:

    Agree. It would make sense for Rollo to do this.

    It doesn’t need to be every article. Just the important ones.

    It will still be sad to lose some of the comments. I’ve benefited from interactions in his comment sections as much as I have from reading his articles.

    It was truly a forum for iron sharpening iron. There’s really nowhere else to go for that.

  14. Nik Fury 69 says:

    Thank you!

  15. mrteebs says:

    Great news! What a nice piece of news to begin the day with. A(n) (inter)national treasure will not be lost.

  16. That was actually my first thought. I’ve offered to curate Dalrock’s blog, close comments and keep it as a sort of permanent archive. I hope that works out, but if not I understand. I’m just glad to have the blog in stasis now.

    Dal’s work is to important and too well-researched to let it all slip down a memory hole.

  17. Lexet Blog says:

    Rollo, what is the best way to get in touch with you. I’d like to share some thoughts re wolves in sheep’s clothing entering this sphere

  18. Red Pill Latecomer says:

    It would be good were there a site to which we could all migrate. Then we could keep the conversation going.

  19. Alpenglow says:

    Note to Rollo re YouTube vs written blogs.
    Men can read blogs with anyone around them. You can’t do this with YouTube. This may be an issue for some men – especially fathers.

  20. fredrussell4168 says:

    Been a lurker for years, never really commented much but you and many other sites like yours saved my life. I’m happily married to a good woman who can be led, and I have mostly you to thank Dalrock. So thank you for your dedication over the years and commitment to honesty in the face of an insane culture. God bless you and your family.

  21. Alpenglow says:

    If a new blog could carry the spirit of this blog, perhaps with several of the long term commentators contributing, it would be nice to have a final blog post from Dalrock linking to the new blog.

  22. cnystrom62 says:

    Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

    Agree with other that say that the contents could be compiled into an excellent and needed book.

  23. BillyS says:

    I would add that I would hate to see all this content disappear. I had hoped to “borrow” many ideas in some writing I should do in the future.

    I can understand the risks of keeping it up however, so do what you think the best Dalrock.

    Thanks for everything whatever choice you make!

  24. RedPillNoob says:

    I don’t generally comment on blogs – the internet has a way of coming back and biting your a$$ years later. That being said – Dalrock is one of the Godfathers of the Red Pill, one that actually led me to the Rational Male and Rollo’s essays as well.

    Dalrock, whatever your intent, whatever the result is that you need to pursue, know that you’ve helped countless Men navigate the Red Pill in a Christian context that swims precariously in violent Blue Pill ocean.

    God bless, all the best now and for all time.

  25. Brian says:

    I’ve been reading for almost 10 years without making an account or commenting. There are hundreds of thousands like me.
    Thanks for everything. You are a good man, Dalrock.

  26. Jack Morrow says:

    Thanks, Dalrock. The content is too valuable not to be left up.

  27. DR Smith says:

    Thanks Dal for leaving the blog articles up for now, and for all you have done.

    God Speed – and May the road rise to meet, and the wind be always at your back…..

  28. Minesweeper says:

    Maybe Dal, will take a good 6 months off or longer. Maybe get the itch again.

    After all, he is prob surprised how much he means to so many.

    Failing that, if its a done deal, I 3rd the notion, that rollo would be a good custodian.

  31. steyraug96 says:

    I’m sorry to hear this, I’ve enjoyed the articles for years.
    Putting things into proper use, on the other hand, can be a challenge. (Irrelevant long story.)

    Glad to hear all is well, at least.
    The world moves on, it has changed, and is not slowing down. Need to make time for what is important.
    Hope all continues well for you. I’m debating hunting down a spider to just pull the pages into an archive… 😉

  32. virginia says:

    Thank you. Both for your contributions to my understanding of the world, and for keeping the blog available. I had already printed and saved some of your posts because I want my sons to read them when they are old enough to understand.

  33. ESeeker says:

    Thank you for your thoughts and words.
    Please allow us to have access to the content for the future.
    Please, can someone techie copy the blog into downloadable form, just in case.

  34. Burner Prime says:

    Many words of wisdom here, but like Roosh’s blog, pretty much everything that needs to be said has been covered. It should be kept up as a archive and reference to late-comers or converts who eventually see the light. Best of luck and God Bless.

  35. Rocknrollchuck says:

    Thank you brother. Your legacy will live on for generations to come. God has used you to influence countless lives for Christ, and will continue to use your writings long after you’ve entered eternity. God bless.

  36. cjrjscgallo says:

    I have greatly appreciated your work. Thank you. Keeping it available is a big help. This war rages on and I hope you come back.

  37. Anna says:

    THANK YOU!! The past few days have been a stressful flurry of trying to track down all the most important posts and save them; a repeating cycle of ‘Oh shoot! That one too!’

    I only ever commented once or twice, because I really don’t have the thick skin required to be an active participant in the manosphere, but reading through the archives here and at Alpha Game have honestly changed my life. I was a bit late to the game to begin with, and most of the blogs I’ve read are now inactive, and I often wonder what people like Sarahsdaughter and Sunshinemary are up to these days.

    I am going to be married this summer. I’m forever grateful for all I’ve learned here; I don’t think it would be happening if I hadn’t. The manosphere is absolutely a men’s club, and we should respect that, but I just wanted to say that the red pill is a life-saver to women too.

    Sorry if this is a bother, but thanking you all the same,


  38. Seth says:

    Thanks for not deleting the content. I have found it invaluable as a reference for thought and discussion. My best wishes and prayers for you.

  39. Loyd says:

    I’m very happy to hear this, and I hope it stays up indefinitely.

    For the commenters on the previous post and this one asking about migrating to a different site. there’s always:

    If you like Reddit, there’s Red Pill Christians

    Deep Strength’s blog

    Roosh’s forum. Since his change of heart, it’s moving in a Christian direction.

    My own site:

    Scott’s site. I don’t recall the link, but maybe he’ll comment here and link it.

  40. David says:

    Good! There is little to no risk of ‘Cancel Culture’ going after someone wrote static archives, years after the fact. Their attention spans are too short, and this is too far down their persecution list.

    Meanwhile, new people who can benefit will keep finding useful material from the archives.

  41. Dale U says:

    One option to consider: let some other blogger you trust host your archive under an agreement in which you retain ownership of your content.

    I had the same thought today, along with some ideas for posts. In case you do not already have someone else chosen Dalrock, I would like to volunteer to “sub-let” your blog.

    It would be good were there a site to which we could all migrate. Then we could keep the conversation going.
    Based on Dalrock’s latest statement, the comments here will be locked soon.
    Whoever already has an established blog and is willing to host guest posts, can you offer your place? GunnerQ?

  42. Splashman says:

    Much appreciated.

  43. pb says:

    Thank you! I hope someone is figuring out a way to easily download the content and to back it up somewhere, in case the powers that be decide to take the next step in the gender war and get this stuff erased from WordPress.

  44. Mad_Kalak says:

    Well, it has been fun. Thanks. This place made me think more about my faith.

  45. EmpireHasNoClothes says:

    2 Cor 3:17Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. 18And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate a the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.

    Thank you brother, for following the Spirit.

  46. Stan Wright says:

    Dalrock I thank you for your time & labor in making this blog. I haven’t commented much, but have been reading for a good part of the past 8-9 years. Of all the things I could say, the only one that matters to me, and hopefully to you, is that I have found your writings to be faith affirming. The things that bother me or drove me from wanting fellowship with others of faith began to make more sense, and made me more understanding that my differences with the churches or other believers did not have to make me feel separated or alienated from God. Thank you & blessings to you & your family.

  47. dragnet says:

    Thanks for leaving the blog up, Dalrock. I’ve pointed more than a few people to it over the years—nice to know it will still be here.

    Best of luck to you.

  48. Ifyouknewmyvices says:

    Momento Mori my brother I’ve lurked off and on for years and posted on various names (since I could never remember what my past log on was). All things good and bad, come to an end. I am thankful for the content you’ve created, all these long years. GOD BLESS.

  49. Lexet Blog says:

    Email me if interested. I’m working with another to put my rp content on their site.

  50. illuvitus says:

    Thank you for all you’ve written. The depth and precision of thought here is truly excellent. You’ve had tremendous influence on me, changing my mind entirely on several topics, and I’ve since been able to pass that change along to others.

  51. Scavos says:

    For those involved, I’ve archived the site for local/shared use. If anyone wants a copy, let me know and give me an email to send it to. If you’d rather archive it yourself, I recommend HTTrack. Fair warning: it could take quite a while. I archived everything and the software was meticulous and methodical. The result was waiting just under 48 hours to finish(Plan for at least 20GB space to be safe).

    God Bless to all and especially to Dalrock. You really opened my eyes up to what’s going on in the church, but I still have so much to learn from your blog(hence, me archiving the site). I hope that others will be inspired to follow what you’ve done and continue on. So many others need to read this to gain insight and make an impact on the Church.

    Keep fighting the fight, everyone!

  52. An AFC starting to wake up says:

    Hi Dalrock- I found your site 3 days ago and have just started reading your content as I’m having my eyes opened by Rollo’s “Rational Male” book after being pointed to read “The Manipulated Man” book by a good Christian Friend who is helping me get the red-pill down.

    I have already deeply appreciated your perspectives/posts. I’ve been a Christian who’s been following the feminized “recommendations” of the church since I was a kid. In my early 20s, I married to escape being single and now, 15 years, multiple kids, and a number of best-selling marriage studies later, I finally am gaining clarity enough to realize that my wife is self-absorbed in her comfort and feels secure in not exerting effort to make physical changes to her body for me since she knows that the New Testament completely shuts down my legitimate “plate theory” options (Mathew 5:32,19:9, 1 Tim 3:12, Titus 1:6). Reading through Genesis 29 the other day, I can empathize with what Jacob must have thought when he was marrying the beautiful sister, but then woke up next to the ugly sister. Only… Jacob also got to marry the beautiful sister, and then ended up with a crazy plate game with 4 wives clamoring for his attention.

    I’m searching for answers from a Biblical (non-feminized) perspective to grow in my relationship with Jesus by learning to behave honorably towards my wife, sacrificially love my wife as Jesus loves the church, and fulfill my God-given responsibility to lead her and my family. Your posts are helping me piece that together. I really appreciated your post on how “the fear of women” is not the beginning of wisdom; I definitely have shown too much tendency to seek my wife’s approval and fear the repercussions of crossing her desires.

    There is a balance between Proverbs 18:22 (He who finds a wife finds a good thing), 1 Cor 7:2 (because of the temptation to sexual immorality, each man should have his own wife), and 1 Cor 7:28 (…those who marry will have worldly troubles) and I thank you for your contribution and thoughts in helping me (and many others) find that balance so that we can help others in the same boat. Praying for you, keep fighting the good fight to make marriages within the church to be a blessing to both men and women.

    If anyone wants to write for that blog, please get in touch (there’s a contact form on site). We are a young blog with a growing global audience and as yet have no-one writing from a specifically Christian perspective.

  60. Alpenglow says:

    Does anybody know of a resource of biblical verses to introduce a preteen to Christianity? Perhaps a Sunday school resource? Reading the Bible cover to cover would be a bit much. A book of verses carefully planned out could capture their attention. This would be for a boy.

    Thank you for this blog Dalrock.

  61. Oh, Dalrock, thank you!

  62. feeriker says:

    Thank you, Dalrock, for reconsidering your original decision. The (sane) world is forever grateful!

  63. Alpenglow says:

    An online resource would be preferred.

    The book of John, followed by the book of Romans.
    In particular, John chapter 1, John 3:14-18, Romans 3:21-26, Romans chapter 6, Romans 10:1-13, especially 9-13. Also Eph 2:8-10, James chapter 2, Titus 2:11-14, Titus 3:3-8 and Titus 3:14, re the idea that good works are required of us BUT do not save us.

    I still own the American Dad site

    It’s just private/password protected

    Just saying

  67. Angela says:

    Thank you kindly for keeping the blog up!

    You remind me of the verses in Ephesians 3:
    And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;
    For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
    Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:
    That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;
    But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:

    You may not be an “official” pastor (and you might not be such an original thinker if you were!) , but you are a teacher who has done sterling work doing exactly that: warning of the sleight of men, perfecting the saints, edifying the body. I don’t have words to express my gratitude and deepest respect. It’s not hyperbole to say I mourn that you will not post (selfishly as I found wisdom here) but I wish you and your family fair seas. And if it’s not presumptuous I thank your family for the time with you they gave up so you could do this wonderful work for all who find their way here.

    I note you said the blog is up for now. I hesitate to ask as I’m sure you have a lot on your plate but I’m wondering if just possibly you could post a ” top 10 posts” list–not necessarily the most comments, but the ones you felt were most important. I’d copy the top ten if you list them; I am not sure my computer would handle the whole site–and I also don’t know if that’s kosher to download it.

    And to the people posting other sites, thank you for the information. Farewell and Godspeed to everyone.

  68. IvoryWingman says:

    Let me add my voice to those calling for you to publish your blog content in book form.

    I’d buy multiple copies in a heartbeat.

  69. Iowa Slim says:

    Thank you, Dalrock. My sons will be needing access to this. You have no idea how many people’s lives you have changed for the better.

  70. Dalrock,

    I am thankful that you are keeping the blog online for now, and reading all these comments, I know I am not alone in this regard.

    There is still more to be written about and commented on in the Christian culture, especially as it intersects feminism and men. For example, the latest media buzz, at least on Facebook, is the new Jesus film “The Chosen” which has some good parts, but is laced with wokeness and feminism, and like the Kendricks brothers films, is supposed to be thought-provoking and real, but really panders to American churchian audiences who love this sort of thing.

    Watching the actors’ interviews for the character of Peter’s wife, the director and actress both state that she is the strong one and that Peter is faltering in his faith and she is the one who pushes him toward God. (If it wasn’t for your blog and your explanation of the message behind the films of the Kendricks brothers, I would have thought that it would be so wonderful to have a wife like that and to be the recipient of such “encouragement.”)

    I know that you are taking a break from blogging, perhaps permanently, but it would be great to be able to discuss, on some platform, these topics and maybe someone here would like to address this new churchian series on their blog.

  71. Bee says:

  72. American says:

    I believe the decision to leave this body of work up is highly desirable for many reasons all of which benefit humanity, first and foremost, but also our Christianized Western Civilization which has stood like a granite cliff against severe waves of the devil’s attacks for a long time now… kicked up both without and within.

    This body of work is a normalizing influence that makes society healthier, even if more chaotic on the way to healthier, because of the truth contained herein.

    By all means move on to the next mission, the next project, the next season of your life; however, let this noble work stand in the public square and provide a historical marker, a continuing benefit. Certainly I understand the desire logical men have to close a chapter before opening a new one but some chapters transcend us and should simply remain open as we move on to a new chapter. Let this body of work be one of those that remain open for all read, learn from, and discuss. Peace and God bless!

    jeeez… i take a break from the interwebs/news cycles for a couple of weeks and the whole world goes crazy…lol

    @Rollo’s dealing with an admin crisis bc trolls are overwhelming his patience… trump’s being actually impeached…lol… the gun rally in VA did NOT result in civil war 2 (i saw some divine intervention in play there)… AND then you decide to hang it up… it’s crazy out there…lol

    i just wanted to say thank you for putting in such a great effort to help other men in dealing with their issues/problems… ESPECIALLY christian men wrt dating/marriage… that is definitely an underserved market in the ‘sphere… or anywhere really…

    and i want to thank you for deciding to leave up your blog as an archive… it really is an important and necessary resource for men…

    buuut, that’s not why i’m commenting… i wanted to check on you to make sure you are ok…

    i know you haven’t made your reasons to stop blogging public (and i’m not going to ask you to change that)… and i also know that you haven’t made the choice to stop on a whim…

    sooo i wanted to check in with you to make sure you are ok… at some point in the ‘help cycle’ (of helping other men, and especially doing it for sooo long) you hit a point that i call RP malaise… where the psychic drag of ‘seeing the truth’ all the time… just builds up over time and results in a decrease in your ability to keep going… nobody has ALL the answers… (not even me…lol) … so whether the FI is pushing on you too hard for too long, or whatever the reason (call it burnout or something else) the end result is that we all need help ourselves at one time or another…

    sooo, i’m checking in with you… are YOU needing some questions answered/help/helpful second pair of eyes on a problem/moral support/etc?… i gotta ask bc we all need to stick together…

    good luck!

    ‘Does anybody know of a resource of biblical verses to introduce a preteen to Christianity? Perhaps a Sunday school resource? Reading the Bible cover to cover would be a bit much. A book of verses carefully planned out could capture their attention. This would be for a boy.’

    Joshua and the Israelites crossing Jordan with the ark, the encircling and sonic conquest of ‘impregnable’ Jericho and other Canaanite cities/fortifications. David thumping Goliath of Gath, who was a nasty mess afterwards while the Philistines slunk away to kick their animals. Plenty of good solid gore. Framed in contexts they can grok, boys love those adventure stories, which happen to be true, and carry spiritual lessons with them.

    Joseph tossed down a well adios! by his brothers no less, imprisoned, rising as Viceroy (second in command) over empire Egypt — loaded with adventure, reversal, action.

    Samson, Daniel, Elijah and Elisha’s outrageous exploits, Moses contending with pharaoh’s sorcerers in incremental displays of power and the flight into Sinai, so forth. I’ll leave you to look up the verses.

  77. Strzelec says:

    Thank you for this blog, Dalrock.
    Been lurking here for the last six years or so. Your insights as well as those of the other commentators have helped me work through a series of issues. I’m a better Man now than I was ten years ago. I had to do the work, but you and the others here sure helped to speed up the process. Best wishes in whatever you choose to do next.

  78. Jim says:

    All good things must come to end. A great run you had Dalrock. It was the best Christian blog on the internet. But it’s good to hear you’re keeping the content up. Thanks.

  79. JD says:

    Very glad to hear the blog is staying up. After a decade it’s completely understandable to want to move on to other things, or just have said all you wanted to say. It’s an impressive and extensive body of work, with all sorts of research that must have taken considerable time to dig for. Not to mention the subsequent interactions with sometimes hundreds of commenters.

    May God richly bless you and your family as you move in new directions.

  80. EuroThanks says:

    Thank you Dalrock for years of great work. I’ve found your blog years ago, when I was contemplating about MGTOW, morality of relationship and related topics.

    Now I’m married and you’re only resource I continued to read. That’s kinda funny considering I’m not christian and don’t live in USA. But you’re only resource I felt is worth spending time reading and thinking about.

  81. valeko says:

    Thank you for reconsidering. I’ve been a silent lurker for years, but it’s no understatement to say that you’ve had a deep influence on my life with your erudite, provocative and inimitable sincere writing on these topics.

    I wish I had exposure to your ideas before I beta’d myself to near self-destruction in a brief but ruinous marriage to a drug addict—whom I nevertheless went very circuitously out of my way to supplicate. But you and Rollo have a big hand to play in why I won’t be making that kind of mistake again.

    Thank you for all that you have done, and I wish you good health, good fortune, familial bliss and happiness in all endeavours.

    Thanks Dalrock. The work you’ve done through the years is too valuable a resource to not be able to be found by those who need it.

    Proverbs 27:17 New King James Version (NKJV)
    17 As iron sharpens iron,
    So a man sharpens the countenance of his friend.

    You have been a good friend and mentor sharpening, and encouraging us to embrace our masculinity to become the men God wants us to be, in whatever role each of us determines as we follow our Lord.

    Thanks for your prayers.

    Take care brother, and see you in the kingdom.

    Scott, that was splendid. Thank you for taking the time to write it up.

    Recommends some sites I found helpful and a word to women here–please delete/don’t post if inappropriate. Thank you!

    No one is like Dalrock but these may be helpful to some: (Lori Alexander) (Beth Moore critique, etc)

    conversations that matter with Jon Harris–youtube, twitter

    First three by women, last three men

    For the few women who posted who may not have had good role models, go watch I Love Lucy or Father Knows Best to see how women dressed and talked before- not perfect but eye-openingly different. Or look up youtubes of Midwest wife for a modern day look. And never talk negatively about your husband to others–including using asking for prayer as an excuse. If he hears that you said something about him, let it be positive.

    20 months ago I found Rollo on my local radio morning talk show. 2 months after that I found you through the rationalmale blog. The two of you combined to save my sanity, reorient my thinking, and open my eyes. I spent 4 months reading everyone of you posts plus the comment section. You have a lot of insightful and thoughtful men commenting here. Through your work ( and ballista74 and deepstrength, whom I found through you ) I have gained an understanding of scripture and what is expected of me as a man that has never been explained, Imagine that, 59 years old, married for 35 of them, and not a single biblically accurate teaching on marriage. How sad is that?! My wife is still in complete rebellion, but at least I now know what I am supposed to be doing. It probably will never be “happy”, but it can be Godly. I cannot fully express what your effort has done for me. You and your family will be in my prayers always. Man to Man, thank you, and Godspeed!

    P.S. I strooongly urge you to take Rollo up on his offer. This blog is too valuable a resource to lose.

    Wondering if anyone knows how long the “anger stage” might last?

    @ wodansthane 

    “Wondering if anyone knows how long the “anger stage” might last?”

    That depends on how much time, dignity, and treasure has been whizzed away. Also on if you have children in the picture and, if so, how much they have been damaged.

    Plan on a couple of years, and don’t prolong that by half-stepping or backing away from acting on what you’ve learned in order to placate others. Good luck to you, amigo.

    Thank Dalrock.

    Dal, I want to say thank you brother.
    It was through your posts here that my life was saved.

    I’m not being dramatic here, I was heading for a early grave, the stress of being plugged into the matrix with a BPD woman was taking it’s toll on me physically, mentally and spiritually.

    But in February 2016 I unplugged (right here on your blog as a matter of fact), and through your writings I was able to square my faith with the red pill.

    Right now I’m in the middle of a nasty divorce (which she initiated, ha!) but my faith and the work you and the men in the ‘Sphere have done over the years pulling the curtain back on reality has made this process SO much easier.

    Thank you for your service to the Body of Christ.

  92. Woody says:

    Dalrock, your viewpoint and posts here have been of great value to me through the years, helping me see through much of the cultural conditioning I acquired through my childhood and years of marriage before I found a worldview from which so many things now make sense. Thanks for taking the time to express yourself so lucidly and create this blog. I’m glad to hear you plan to leave it up so that others may benefit. Cheers.

  93. Sad that you will not be posting in future. I’ve learnt a lot from you and some esteemed commenters here such as Cane Caldo, Scott, thedeti and Novaseeker,

    Living in a society seeped in feminism and having to deal with a wife who knows what submission is but have never truly submitted to any male figure in her life, marriage now for me is a long and arduous road for the rest of my life. In truth, if I had known, I wouldn’t marry and I find myself increasingly tempted to advise other single men not to do so. Cos it ain’t worth it.

    All the best for your future endeaviours. Thank you for keeping this blog alive on the Interwebs. Will read the posts and comments again and again.

  94. FWIW – Sunshine Mary had a fantastic blog a while back, I think she got doxxed and it went *POOF* – some really good hard hitting content there…. I would love to get some of it also. So thanks for keeping it open for a while, and do consider a trusted blogger to curate and archive your content – it has helped many more than you know. Blessings to you and yours…

    Thank you for all your years of work.

    Thank you Dalrock for everything. Through reading Rollo and some other bloggers I found this amazing blog, and instantly I was hooked, I read every post, every comment thread, I couldn’t get enough. I was a binge Dalrock reader daily for a full year till I caught up to current day. All of a sudden I felt a shred of sanity in an insane world, I began to feel alive again. Sir, I can’t thank you enough, words won’t do justice.

    I will admit in an absolute moment of panic I mirrored this entire blog site, all 1.9GB, so I have a copy for future reference in the event WP decides to memory hole it. I really hope Rollo can host the blog history if at all possible. If not, please let us know, I will stand up my own webserver if needed just to host it, this is FAR too valuable to lose as a resource for other men to learn from. If there is anything I can do to help please let me know. I hope you can find the time to put this amazing record of eternal red-pill truth to book form.

    I found your blog 10 years ago when I divorced so I have been reading it right from the start. My recollection is I found it on a top 40 new blogs list that showed up somewhere. On a lark I started reading yours and kept coming back. I think of the change in my life over these years, most all if it for the better, and how this blog played a big part in it. Thank you Dalrock.

    Glad to hear that, Mr. Dalrock.

    In other news, here’s an article about Lolo Jones being an almost-40 year old virgin.
