The manosphere (portmanteau of man and blogosphere) or androsphere (from Ancient Greek: ἀνήρ, anēr, genitive ἀνδρός, andros, "man") is a name given to a loose and informal network of blogs, forums and websites, with internet commentators focussing on issues relating to men and masculinity, as a male counterpart to feminism or in opposition to it. Many of these are men's spaces. Their content is varied, and includes Men Going Their Own Way (MGTOW), men's rights issues, fathers' rights movement activists, and male victims ofabuse, self-improvement, bodybuilding, antifeminism, seduction community commentary for pick-up artists.
The manosphere has its own distinct jargon. Manosphere websites commonly use red pill and blue pill imagery as an analogy; accepting the manosphere's ideology is equated with "taking the red pill", and "blue pill" refers to those who disagree with their philosophy. The terms "alpha male" and "beta male" are also commonly used.
Notable examples of manosphere sites reportedly include the Red Pill Room, A Voice for Men and Roosh V's website Return Of Kings as well as his personal blog and forum. Reddit is a popular gathering place for manosphere supporters, and there are several forums on the site that are geared toward its ideas. One of these, the Red Pill subreddit, has over 100,000 subscribers.
