alpha males bad boys douchebaggery evo psych fairy tales irony alert men who should not ever be with women ever misogyny post contains sarcasm PUA red pill return of kings

Impress the ladies by ramming into people on the sidewalk, Red Pill writer suggests

We got a badass over here
We got a badass over here

When I saw the headline on Return of Kings, PUA scuzzball Roosh V’s garbage site, I braced for the worst.

Men Benefit From Acting Potentially Violent And Explosive Around Women

Because the not-so-secret truth about domestic abuse is that abusive men do benefit in various ways from being abusive, just as bullies benefit from stealing other kids’ lunch money.

Happily, in this instance at least, Return of Kings refrains from explicitly endorsing domestic abuse.

It turns out that this post. by regular RoK contributor David Garrett, is mostly about running into people on sidewalks.

On purpose. To show what a total alpha badass you are. Or at least what a total alpha badass you are pretending to be.

As Garrett sees it, women go weak in the knees around “bad boys” because they think these “bad boys would be willing to use or have used physical force in expressing their badness.”

Trouble is, dudes who go around punching people tend to get punched back. So the real trick, Garret writes, is

to be seen as potentially violent and explosive, without the regular drawbacks of spending time in prison, getting badly beaten up by five other guys, or some other event you don’t particularly want to experience. 

The key word is “potentially.” And in case you missed his point, Garrett repeats it, with the word “potentially” in bold:

There’s a distinction here, as you can see, between being violent and acting potentially violent around women and others.

So how do you convince the Hot Babes you’re potentially a big tough guy … without ever having to get into an actual fight to prove it?

Well, here’s where the whole “running into people on sidewalks” thing comes in.

If you want to be seen as a big tough guy who never apologizes for taking up space in the world, what better way to show this (in a reasonably safe way) than by running into people on sidewalks? Or at least by running into people you’re pretty sure won’t punch you for it.

When you walk in large cities, you might notice the propensity of people, especially young women, not to move around you when you’re walking towards one another. Sometimes they will deliberately try and cut you off, expecting you’ll concede space. Don’t. Aside from those with infirmities, the elderly or parents with young children, plough through.

Last month, one middle-aged woman … refused to make way … Oh well, my bag ran into her. And it hurt. Too bad for her.

TOTAL ALPHA MOVE.

Oh, and for maximum benefit, do this in front of the Hot Babes you’re trying to impress. I mean, duh.

When you’re with your girl, a female target or just female friends, try things like this out. There’s a time and place for etiquette and politeness but at least 90% of the time, barring those with mobility issues, it isn’t on the streets you walk.

You can also try getting mad at people who blow cigarette smoke in your general direction.

I also (calmly) confront those who blow tobacco smoke in my face accidentally, half- or full-daring them to try again (depending on whether I’m being sarcastic or plain condescending).

After explicitly telling his readers to do all this in front of “your girl, a female target or just female friends” in order to convince them in a low-risk way how potentially violent they are, Garrett assures us that he totally acts this way even when there are no HB8’s in sight. 

If an alpha male falls in the forest, and there’s no HB8 to hear him, does he make a sound? Garrett says YES and pumps his fists.

Rather than being a staged action, it’s who I am, someone utterly repulsed by cigarette fumes. I would do the same thing alone or with a girl. … The context is more like becoming who you really are, rather than what society has demanded you be: the timid, ball-less gentleman.

Oh, but don’t do any of this with, you know, black dudes, or anyone else who might actually punch you.

I am going to suggest to you that making retaliatory or wisecracking comments to abrasive males in the projects of Detroit or the Bronx, or the non-tourist suburbs of Moscow, is maybe not worth the effort (or the dental bill).

I mean, BECOME WHO YOU ARE but only with people smaller than you, and who probably don’t have friends in the vicinity who might punch you. Seriously, you may want to stick to middle-aged women you can “accidentally” hit with your bag.

Because nothing turns the hot babes on more than a dude who “accidentally” hits middle-aged women with his bag.

Is there any small act, of any kind, that these guys won’t analyze to death? And then douche-i-fy, to the very best of their sad little abilities?

Anyone remember that post from a while back, about the guy saying that his girlfriend walked in front of him? And how it made him less manly, or something?

After never thinking about how and where I walk, not once over the course of my life, my husband and I had an hour long conversation about walking, and how it affects his masculinity. And, shocker, his penis, testicles, testosterone, etc. are all doing ok, even though it turns out that I mostly walk in front of him.

Game is the things that you do when you don’t want to actually do anything that requires effort. The PUA community is marked by a search for the Philosopher’s Stone, or a kind of Vaginal Konami Code that will allow you unlimited sexual licence anytime and anywhere you perform it. Failing that, it puts forward all sorts of little “churn” activities like bumping into defenseless-looking people on the sidewalk or “interaction timers”. These seem generally to either promise immediate, one-weird-trick success with women, or to purport to be quick and easy ways to train yourself gradually to embody the VKC.

Well! As a formerly violent man, from a violent family that spanned as many generations that I know of. Chummy boy here has got it massively wrong, I can’t think of any woman who wanted to continue a relationship with me after them seeing me getting into a ruck in a boozer, too scary working by half.

The only woman who saw it as roughly ok-ish was the woman who became my wife because her X is/was (I say that as I doubt he’s changed) a relationship rapist stalker who was threatening to halm her and me at the start of our relationship.

I can’t stand these ‘Bros’ who live some kind of half arsed fantasy life about being a ‘hard man’. I’ve been knifed, slashed and glassed in my life, a broken leg where the schmuck missed my kneecap and a broken wrist. Some of these injuries are nearly two decades old but they still ache/hurt today.

I dunno what to say about guys like this other than its not a life worth living, especially as you get older and you look back on the unnecessary halm that’s been done in the name of machismo and all this dies is perpetuate worthless behaviour.

It saddens me that there is an audience for this man’s fantasy garbage.

Pretend to be violent, so that you only attract women who are into violent men, and find yourself in competition with genuinely violent men. I can’t see any possible downside to this.

Oh my god this is cringeworthy. Like most RedPill BS, this describes the behavior of a complete and utter try-hard. I’m sorry but insecurity is a huge turn off, especially if you compensate for it by acting like a 12 year old. If a guy I dated ever did this I’d walk away without batting an eyelid and never speak to him again, because I’d be fxcking humiliated.

Redpillers are whiny little babies overcompensating for their lack of social skills and unappealing physical appearance. Try as they might, they will never come close to being real men, or “bad boys” for that matter.

These suburban manbabies who think “acting like mommy’s tough widdle cookie” will get them laid are fucking dumb, weak pieces of shit. Violence isn’t fun. it isn’t glamorous. It’s a rush, yeah, but it’s not a good thing. Violent people are a serious headache to deal with, on top of that.

I’d love to see these soft little manbabies who think human interaction has some kind of cheat code dropped into my old neighborhood, poor, and next to being homeless. Due to their total lack of empathy it’s pretty clear none of them have ever had to seriously struggle outside of girls being put off by their disgusting “beta” (read: entitled, whiny) asses.

I doubt this is an original insight, but I was blissfully unaware of the whole “manosphere” thing until recently, and I have to ask: what type of women are these supposed “alphas” actually attracting with this kind of behavior and thought-process, other than (maybe) those who are equally immature, selfish, insecure, and aggressive?

Or do they eventually just go full-MGTOW when these pathetic techniques fail to “work”?

Exactly, cretaceouskitteh. they essentially invented the rules for the whole alpha/beta thing because it is not academic. then they go and break these rules by claiming “alphas” can be disgusting nerd manbabies who obsess over how they’re coming off.

Simon: usually women who have histories of abuse, who are vulnerable, who are very young, who are simply ignorant, etc. their warped tactics generally do not work from what ive read, so there’s a pipeline from PUAs to other parts of the manosphere where the manchildren congregate to wallow in their collective bitterness until an elliot rodger type shows up and shoots a few people.

There are, generally, five kinds of women attracted (or “attracted”) to so-called “alphas”. The categories are ranked below from most to least numerous:

1. imaginary women;
2. inflatable women (and various equivalents);
3. very drunk women (until they sober up);
4. women with incredibly low self-esteem and a history of abusive and damaging relationships;
5. mail-order brides who dump these “alphas” first chance they get; sometimes in favor of working in a strip club, even.

Simon Russell: Mostly, once you learn to read between the lines, the “success stories” parlayed online tend to fall into a few categories (trigger-warnings for some of these descriptions):

1: The woman really didn’t give a damn about their ‘game’; she was looking for an easy, no strings attached fling, and he was available, with both a pulse and a penis, thereby meeting the minimum requirements for success. They fail to realize this, because the manosphere generally insists women have no actual interest in sex except as a means to an end (status, money, etc), so the idea that she was just horny and had low standards doesn’t fit their calculus.

2: The woman was in an emotionally vulnerable state (the nature of which is usually fairly individual and idiosyncratic), and he just lucked into exploiting those weaknesses. This, of course, is how much of ‘game’ is supposed to work, although they never put it into those terms precisely. It’s nowhere near as common as the self-styled gurus would like to claim to be, but sometimes things fall into that category.

3: He got her drunk, then figured the fact she didn’t push him off was a sign of consent, not inebriation–so yeah, date-rape.

4: He got her into a situation (alone in an apartment or room at a frat house, for instance) where she was afraid to give a firm no, and he just escalated his efforts to get her into bed until she acquiesced rather than risk him using additional force. Again, rapist piece of shit.

5: Totally fictional encounters, usually put forward as an attempt at garnering in-group status. If you’re not a PUA/MRA type, the fake dialogue attributed to the woman is usually sufficiently on the wrong side of the uncanny valley to send up warning signals.

Categories 2-4 are, of course, utterly vile. Sadly, they’re each at least as common as #1, though I suspect #5 is ahead of all the rest.

Is Thomas Hobbes an actual Hobbesian moron or is he some kind of tired troll gimmick?

He’s a returning troll who used to use the handle Pro Patria Truth Teller.

That comment was a bit out of his usual style, though. His usual style is to come in, make some banal patriarchy-supporting bullshit argument, then claim some historic figure, like Mozart, Chaucer, or who-have-you, was going to write an expose supporting all of his points, except that figure was assassinated just before they could publish.

Like, Janis Joplin was going to expose all the hypocrisy that was Vatican II, but the Pope had her killed. That was his first comment under the Hobbes nym that I can recall, because it left me scratching my head, because he’d said stuff to make me think he was Catholic, but then I realized he was pretending to be a Catholic who was against Vatican II.

I admit, I egged him on by making requests for the lolz but then I got bored. I thought he’d been banned.

It’s UNBELIEVABLE how many hotties have thrown themselves at me after hearing my story about “The Wild Brawl at the Bingo Hall” (as I like to call it). I’m not going to spell it all out here since it’s not really important but let’s just say Mildred isn’t going to pretend to have “misheared” B16 instead of B60 ever again …. and her bridge club also learned a lesson about minding their own damn business.

I was walking a couple months ago near a shopping center in the downtown area where I work. I was already at the edge of the generously-sized sidewalk when up comes this phalanx of five men all walking abreast. None of them seemed particularly keen on letting me past them (and, again, short of “into the street” I had limited options) so I just put my shoulder into it and checked the guy on the end. He probably had a foot and at least 100 pounds on me, and he seemed quite shocked.

I wonder if it’s the same guy who wrote this article.

I’ve known some accomplished martial artists, and a lot of vets that actually saw combat. One thing they all had in common is that they were not casually violent, let things slide, were nearly impossible to provoke, and even if you did, they’d only respond just enough to defuse the situation. I once watched a friend who won state jeet kune do competitions in school, then did some tours in the marines, talk very calmly to a drunk jerk that kept insulting him and hitting on his fiancee. Yes, he could have stomped his face in, but the guy wasn’t a threat and he didn’t have anything to prove, so why bother?

I don’t like the whole concept of “alpha/beta,” but even if it were a useful descriptor of human beings, what PUAs are describing isn’t “alpha,” it’s just a glorified and aggressive form of insecurity.

Shit. The most “alpha” person I know personally is female and would straight end any of these little cocktail wieners.

Exhibit A: There’s a luxury resort near where we live that everyone that lives around here ends up working at it least once. It’s a rural area, country folk. But to cover all the positions, the hotel ends up hiring a large number of Jamaicans. S (who I’ve known since HS and is, visually a lithe and unimposing white female) was employed as a server and she lost her job there because during dinner service some stupid redneck lady made the mistake of saying something to the effect of “Isn’t it nice? Being served by all these n!@@ers?” within earshot of S. So S straight up slapped that wretched bitch out of her chair right up in the middle of the hotel’s main dining room.

Alpha. As. Fuuuuuuuck!
