Reader Briana writes to the ROK staff with the email subject titled “coward”:
Why is it that you all hide behind pseudonyms? Wouldn’t a real alpha male use his real name?
Well, Brianna, there is a difference between having balls and being, well – fucking stupid. And trust me, I’ve given it some real serious thought. I nearly posted my picture when I wrapped up my travel series, as well as this post.
I just see no benefits in my current situation, and plenty of downsides. Plenty of guys around the Manosphere write under their real life, and I have nothing but respect for them. Many of them are in the situation where they are financially independent and free of the corporate shackles.
I am…not, so from a personal level, that’s why I’m not yet blogging under my real name and showing my picture out in public. The last thing I want is for a co-worker, or hell, a potential employer – to Google and find this blog. This blog isn’t even that bad!
Am I A Coward?
It all comes down to protecting yourself. Men don’t have it easy in today’s world. It’s nearly impossible to spit any red pill truths without encountering a giant wall full of hate. Why would someone sacrifice their entire well being, professional development, and even financial stability just so that they can prove a few people wrong who call them cowards?
Don’t get me wrong, someday I hope to be exposing the lies of society under my real name, and have people respect that. I hope to be at the point I do not give a single fuck about any of them who might try to defer me.
But for now, that’s just the way the cookie crumbles.
