You Can’t "Red Pill" Someone Else

You Can’t "Red Pill" Someone Else

The red pill has entered the common lexicon as a term. Many are confused by what it means and just as many are confused about how it happens.  I wrote about what “red pill” means to me here, “What is the Red Pill“.  No, I […]

Trump and The Red Pill

Trump and The Red Pill

I couldn’t help but notice the way those who write and talk about being red pill seemed to align  politically with Trump during the election. From the very beginning, when Trump announced his candidacy in August of 2015, many of the writers I enjoyed were […]

What Is the Red Pill?

What Is the Red Pill?

I refer to the term red pill enough on this blog that I wanted to post what I know of it for reference and clarification.  The term has grown and changed over the years. And many will argue about its meaning. So I am clarifying here […]

The Trap

The Trap

I had a hell of a week. Actually, I’ve had a hell of a few weeks. To be honest, the past few years haven’t been great. Things culminate. This has happened a few times over the past few years. No need for details but hey, […]

Country Dog in the Big City

*Please note, I’m moving some blog posts from a separate blog and combining them on Kitten Holiday.  These may seem out-of-place for now but as I move forward I will be posting a greater variety of writing. Just doing some clean up for now. Thank […]

Broken is Better

I’ve made no secret of my disdain for the “give no f*cks” movement. I understand the premise of not needlessly getting your panties in a bunch over non-issues. It is certainly a valid counterpoint to the perpetually offended, meddling, pearl clutching crowd.  But just as that […]

What I Know About Love

If I’ve learned anything at all about love, it’s that it’s just like childbirth. You can read as many books about the subject as you want with the hope it’s going to prepare you but once it hits, there’s nothing you can do to stop […]
