I've had a lot of people want to know where they can get "Red Pill" merchandise, and there just isn't a lot out there. And while I think it's debatable whether or not we need Red Pill merchandise, enough other people do that I took a six-hour spate of writer's block and half a bottle of rum, mixed liberally with creative genius and some clever comments from my brother, Andy Ironwood, and threw the result up over at Cafe Press. And now I'm going to share it with you before I sober up and start having regrets.
Now, before anyone starts to tear into me for appropriating any other Manospheran's turf, please understand a few basic things about this offering:
1) I'm not trying to piss anyone off or steal anyone's ideas. I just wanted to fulfill a need that several people have brought to my attention. If you think I'm stealing someone's ideas, let me know. I won't necessarily agree, but I'll listen.
2) I'm not trying to get rich off of T-Shirts. In fact, I don't really want any money from T-shirts. I'm a writer, for gods sake. So please consider this my intention to devote any actual profits from this endeavor towards seed money for the (wait for it . . .)
First Annual Manosphere Conference On 21st Century Gender Relations And Spitting Contest
For real . . . eventually, this thing is going to get big enough to attract some academic attention. Not that I care all that much about that, but when people start looking at the Manosphere seriously (and I hope that my forthcoming book, Manosphere: A New Hope For Masculinity elicits some interest when it finally comes forth...and THAT'S where I plan to make money, not from t-shirts) they're going to want some vehicle to address it . . . and the Manosphere may indeed want some more-traditional means of interfacing and outreaching to the public. A Manosphere conference would be a HOOT, in my opinion. And while my organizational aspirations toward the event are far more inspirational than persperational, when the time comes and we need seed money, well, that's where all this t-shirt money will go.
Besides, I had a lot of fun coming up with them, and I'm not marking them up any more than absolutely necessary. I'm a marketer by trade, and this kind of thing is just fun for me. So without further ado, here's a quick run-down of some of my offerings. I'm open to more, and if you have a strong and legitimate objection to any of these, let me know. If it's compelling, I might take it down.
And, of course, if you have suggestions for more, please let me know, too.
Here are a few of the better ones available now at the Red Pill Society shop at Cafe Press:
The Red Pill Man T-Shirt . . . when you want to tell the world you've taken the Red Pill and you don't take no shit from anyone. If nothing else, you'll attract those ladies who are desperately seeking a Red Pill man . . . and irritate feminists as far as the eye can see.
