As a mildly internet-famous man, I get fan mail sometimes. Often in the form of drive-by blog comments that show up fairly regularly in the “pending” folder on my WordPress dashboard.
This morning I discovered a flattering little missive from someone calling himself RedPillGuard, who has many strong feelings about me, most of them loosely tied to my alleged status as a guy with a particular Greek letter attached to me.
David you are a gamma male, worse than an omega or beta. Not only do you have a female mindset, your kind embody the unflattering, backstabbing, evil, ruthless, greedy, cowardly, stubborn and manipulative qualities of women.
Not only do I have a “female mindset” but I’m also … like a woman?
Where they have Cleopatra you betas have Gamma Males like yourself.
I thought I was just a Gamma. Now I’m a Beta also? Greek is hard!
RedPillGuard follows up this expert distillation of my character by expressing the desire to see me raped in prison.
A lot of drive-by commenters would have left it at that. But RedPillGuard is just getting started. Turns out I’m responsible for several centuries worth of mass killings!
Pol Pot, Joseph Stalin, Khrushchev, Mao, Lenin, Robespierre, Hitler, Trotsky, Hugo Chavez,. You are the scum of this planet, in the last century your kind murdered over 100 million people on the planet, you created communism and this mess of cultural marxism today.
You can’t get laid so you channel your energy to focus on other sad activities.
Like genocide, apparently.
Women scorn you because you mirror back a woman‘s most unflattering traits, and no woman even wants you to be her beta because she knows if you had her child you would likely sell them to slavery on the black market or take them to somewhere they have a high probability of dying in.
Sad you will not succeed.
Huh? Dude, I apparently murdered 100 million people before I was even born. I’d call that a pretty big success!
In a followup comment, RedPillGuard asks:
Why don’t you meet Roosh V in real life and see who has more confidence instead of passive-aggressively making jabs at him gamma male coward?
This is a somewhat ironic statement to be coming from an anonymous internet commenter.
At this point you may be wondering: aside from all the genocide and hypothetical child-selling, what is it exactly that defines the Gamma Male?
RedPillGuard links to an old post from Theodore “Vox Day” Beale, the racist fantasy author and self-styled pickup guru who came up with the Gamma classification, based on extensive research centered around his own posterior. According to Beale, there are four key characteristics of this imaginary personality type that he made up.
- Overly romantic (dramatic self-narrative)
- Conflict-avoidance (passive-aggressivene and plausible deniability)
- Delusion (exaggeration and posturing)
- Lack of success with women
I guess I am a bit conflict-averse, if you don’t count my intermittent political activism and most of my writing career. So that’s one out of four.
And now I have the theme song to the old Hulk cartoon show in my head. So let me, in my passive-aggressive way, put it in yours!
