The red pill means different things to different communities. Most would associate it with The Matrix. I associate it with /pol/. Redditors will associate it with the relationship gaming subreddit r/theredpill.

If you hang out in r/theredpill long enough you realize that it is not a PUA (pick up artist) subreddit and is more about gender philosophy, and rehabilitating former bluepillers, helping them navigate the frightening redpill experience they are now aware of. There is a fair amount of overlap with PUA folks but it's not at all the stated intention. It's been a while since I've been there but that was my experience.

I'd say there is a bigger overlap of mensrights and theredpill than there is between either of them and PUA.

I am just responding because "relationship gaming" sounds exploitative, like pick up artistry can be. Relationship "strategy" might be a better term. It's all about correcting an internal misunderstanding of women and helping guys get satisfaction in their lives and telationships, it is up to them to decide how to apply it. There are many paths. Early on after swallowing the pill it is basically quite unlikely that a guy will want a serious relationship. So he might go MGTOW and never really get into PUA or "spinning plates", or might do some combination of them.

Also there is a r/redpillwomen. Redpill is really just reviving what people used to know about dating back in the day. Like, guys, don't offer up exclusivity unless you think this woman might be the future mother of your children. And girls, don't fuck the guy unless you think he's serious.

That said, redpill and mensrights are different, so it is an unfortunate title.

I didn't use PUA because from what I've seen on that subreddit is they generally don't like PUA, and you're right, they do share more with the MRM than they do PUAs, but most of them wouldn't consider themselves MRAs.

PUAs use tricks to get girls, where TRP is more of the understanding of why tricks like that work. Evolutionary psychology, and how society has evolved faster than our natural reproductive strategies.

It's been a while since I visited that subreddit, so forgive me if I'm mistaken on anything. I've just given up on women completely and stepped out of the relationship game.
