Abstract

This thesis is a critical discourse analysis that seeks to identify and understand the various affects circulating within the anti-feminist, reactionary group, The Red Pill. The central argument is that, despite The Red Pill’s desire to cultivate an emotionless “essential masculine,” affect is made visible in these environments when it moves or circulates in the form of emotionally charged discourse.
