The progression of individuals through the kinds of counter-cultural thinking that the manosphere in particular presents tends to follow an identifiable pattern. The details differ somewhat depending on where a specific man is coming from in terms of life stage and status, but the general progression is as follows: (1) orientation (wherein much is denied, but much information is taken on board), (2) rage (wherein anger is flowing freely, largely against unnamed cultural agents who have “lied” to the individual), (3) re-orientation (wherein a new world view is substituted for an old one, and here there lies a branching), and (4) new paradigm (wherein a new lifestyle and/or approach to these issues is undertaken based on the re-orientation). There is obviously a good amount of branching associated with the re-orientation phase (with some people opting for activism, and others for debauchery fueled by Game, and others for enhanced monogamy fueled by similar principles, and others for walking away from relationships with women, among other things). This branching cascades into the new paradigm phase as well, and conflicts begin to emerge.
I encourage everyone to read the whole thing. If time permits, I might add some thoughts of my own later.
