Submit links to your beta candidates in the comments to this post. At the end of each month I will choose two betas from among the monthly submissions which you, the readers, will then vote on for Beta Of The Month winner. If your link is the winning beta, I will put your name up in lights on my blog, and the next beer will be on me if you are ever in town.

There will be a final debate and reader vote at the end of the year to select who among the twelve Beta Of The Month winners is the most pathetic, vomit-inducing beta. He will be crowned BETA OF THE YEAR. Prize for the winning BOTY link to be determined.

Happy hunting!

  1. Mos Def, A list rapper and actor.

    Details here, click play, it’s 26 minutes but totally worth it:

    Some more background:

    Figure it’s a good break from the usual whitebread betas to show how hip-hop black guys with supposed swagger are not immune from betahood either.


    • That blemish on Mos Def’s record hardly makes him a beta. Look into his and Jay Z’s beef. His reputation kind of speaks for itself. Secondly, he doesnt really walk around peacocking like other garbage ass rappers. If you want a better example Soulja Boy vs Katstacks is a better story to look into…


      • Ha! A little loser like Most Definitely, so dumb he thinks Osama Bin Laden had nothing to do with 9/11?

        Please. He’s a little bitch who got played. Just ’cause he’s got some talent in the music realm doesn’t mean he’s alpha. In fact, its probably why he went into music to begin with—because he was too much of a beta to get chicks without it. The fact that he thinks his little pop tunes are “deep’ and ‘meaningful” has beta written all over it.


  2. seal.

    ok, so i actually read the directions this time.
    (remember that breaking rules is alpha)


  3. +1 for Three weeks timeout dude haha.


  4. I don’t know if this counts for Beta of the Year or Exhibit #7568 Why Marriage is a Dying Institution, but it’s definitely worth clicking:



  5. Another submission: the “straight” men in this article bragging about dating a transsexual and finding nothing wrong with it because she’s hot:

      • Okay another thing Ricky, iam about to check out your rawness site because it sounds interesting, but seriously, this is beta of the year submissions. The guy described in that article sounds to me like an alpha if you ask me. He just doesnt follow your standards. Hes attracted to feminity, he wants to fuck what hes attracted to, and he doesnt give a fuck what people think. Hes boning some other dudes wife. If shes as hot as the tranny hes doing well id say.

        But the main point is this is beta submissions not gay submissions.
        Do you think that the men who over power and rape other men are betas. What if you end in jail and get raped, you still gonna call yourself an alpha male and hes the beta?

      • Are you kidding? Jamie Clayton is just ridiculously hot. Beyond the reach of most all of the men here. Maybe a few judge her for being born a man, but who cares.


      • They would care because he is a man. You can chop it off but the DNA stays the same. Men like you are so pathetic.


    • Dude, Mos Def looks way better than you 😀


  6. re:Sparks

    I don’t have a vote, but that one’s tough to beat. I felt pity for the husband, and pity reception is 100% beta (alphas are too hated and omegas are too annoying to receive it). I would like to hear the rest of the story though. The husband has likely had his affairs as well. He has a high-powered banking career, and he felt guilt over late work nights after her brother’s death (since he was getting his dick wet elsewhere).


  7. Another submission: the “straight” men in this article bragging about dating a transsexual and finding nothing wrong with it because she’s hot:


    If that’s a man, I’d sleep with that man.

    You’re being too uptight. Only pitching makes you really gay. Besides, if you’ve been with a good number of women, it’s likely that you’ve had a transsexual anyway (or at least lusted after one, if there are more that look like that out there).


  8. There’s a word for straight guys who knowingly sleep with trannies: gay.


  9. Sounds like she was always feminine and now she even has the appropriate parts. That’s a woman, not a tranny.

    You may not have the mental flexibility to deal with it, but she even says she tells people on the first date, so what do you care?

    Me, I have a simple rule: if I like what I see, I’ll fuck. And I’d definitely fuck that.


    • Yeah no rules, that helps everything. Here, I’ll break some rules, let me destroy your life, since I LIKE THE CONCEPT.

      /ura moron.


  10. jaakkeli,

    If you like what you see, you’d fuck? What if you saw a hot chick but she had AIDS or something? You have to take the whole package into consideration, literally. And formerly having a penis is something that should definitely be taken into consideration.


  11. are the vaginas of post-op trannies different from those of genetic women?


  12. Uh, how’d we get onto this topic?



  13. are the vaginas of post-op trannies different from those of genetic women?

    I’d assume that appearance and functionality varies a lot depending on whether they went for that Dr. Meltzer in the article or some much cheaper doc in Bulgaria. In any case, they can’t have kids (no uterus) and they need auxiliary lubrication (although the one I’ve spoken to about this claimed that she just needed a bit of lube beforehand and the guy wouldn’t know – but then, with her, the guy would probably know anyway).

    Chuck, why? If that girl really passes as well as she does in that one photo (notice that she’s careful to not really show her hands? it looks set up to be as passable as possible), you wouldn’t even know it if she didn’t tell you.


  14. If that girl really passes as well as she does in that one photo (notice that she’s careful to not really show her hands? it looks set up to be as passable as possible), you wouldn’t even know it if she didn’t tell you.

    Wouldn’t she still smell like a man?


  15. Jaakkeli,
    I mean its impossible to know what we can’t know, right? Or something. If he-she has a reconstructed vagina, tits, female voice, and all the other female parts and she looks good, then banging the tranny w/o that knowledge is passable. If, on the other hand, you know he-she is a post-op tranny and you do the dirty dog anyway, then your Kinsey score goes up at least a couple of points. That’s all I’m saying.
    I think you may have mistyped when you said “pitching is truly gay;” I assume you meant catching makes you truly gay. I agree with you on this point. On the levels of gayness, from least gay to most gay: banging only true-blue chicks < banging trannies unknowingly < banging trannies knowingly < getting blown by dudes < sticking it to dudes < blowing dudes < getting stuck by dudes. This inequality is one of life’s absolutes.

    OOOPS, you’re right. I shouldn’t try the baseball lingo.


  21. PA: Wouldn’t she still smell like a man?

    That’s an interesting question. I’ll remember to smell the next transsexual I come across.

    I’m guessing that smell is at least part hormonal and that most transsexuals didn’t start off very masculine, so maybe not.

    Ah, I’ll continue a little:

    If, on the other hand, you know he-she is a post-op tranny and you do the dirty dog anyway, then your Kinsey score goes up at least a couple of points. That’s all I’m saying.

    Well who cares? It would probably bother me if she had some very obviously masculine features but other than that, what does it matter?

    Do you have any idea how many hot girls you’ll have to pass up if you’re worried that something you’re doing might be called gay? Eg. Mu there is into astrology. I knew a guy who was very much into astrology when I was a teen. We all called him a fag for it, but guess who was popular with the girls? Most of us would just sit in front of computers or drinking in the corner complaining that you’d have to do gay shit like talking and dancing to get any girls.


  22. Jaak,

    This is a question of degree of gayness. To someone who is ultra-hetero, dancing is gay. To someone who is of average heterosexuality (most men), knowingly banging a tranny is gay. Don’t they tuck the balls up into the makeshift vagina or something? If your dick makes contact with that, you’re irreparably and irrevocably gay.

    • When did this place become full of gay men….I watched the video she has a fucking penis!! Yeah it’s pretty easy not to be attracted to something with a penis…at least for me. Maybe you shouldn’t be in the manosphere you should be out cruising for cock in west hollywood.


    • I changed my mind…whatever makes people happy…maybe I’m just a neanderthal


  24. To someone who is ultra-hetero, dancing is gay.

    No way. Look at the most macho, most hetero cultures on earth, and dancing by hetero men is not only the norm but encouraged. Back in the day, the founding fathers all were avid lovers of dancing. Andrew Jackson may be the most alpha president ever and he LOVED dance almost obsessively. Dancing is about embracing and being comfortable with your sexuality. In the West now straight men are so uncomfortable with their sexuality that the only men left who are still comfortable being overtly sexual in their body language are gay men. Dancing teaches men how to lead a woman, how to be used to putting your hands on her and directing her and be dominant. There’s a reason why being able to dance was considered a crucial part of a well-rounded gentleman’s education and finishing in the old days. After feminism really began to rule the day, we slowly started seeing men become uncomfortable with and guilty about their sexuality and dancing by straight men reached the sad state it’s at today. You look at men dancing like Fred Astaire, Gene Kelly, Sammy Davis, James Brown and can’t say they were acting gay. They were virile, hetero and dominating in their heyday and women loved them.

    Agreed, but none of the above styles of dancing are what the average man encounters when he is at a contemporary social event.

  27. J5,
    Question: Queen Latifah-hit or no hit?

    Excellent points wrt dancing. My understanding has always been, that Women can and often will make assessments of a Man’s potential Woodhandling Skills on the basis of his moves, or lack thereof, on the dance floor. This being the case, one thing I’ll be focusing on a bit more in the coming year is dancing.

    Now, its important to get something clear here. Not all styles of dancing are for everyone, its a lot like everything else Game-oriented, you have to find what works best for you. But I do think its a good idea to at least have a reliable two-step at your disposal.



  28. “In the West now straight men are so uncomfortable with their sexuality that the only men left who are still comfortable being overtly sexual in their body language are gay men.”

    T: My point exactly. If you are hanging out with your boys are you going to be watching football or “Dancing With the Stars?” I agree that dancing as an artform and as a form of seduction are lost on Western culture, but that doesn’t erase the fact that in this country, if you dance too much, and are male, you’re going to be called gay. Doesn’t mean you are, just that you’ll be accused of it.
    In Andrew Jackson’s time and throughout the history of other cultures dancing was viewed as a more masculine endeavor.


  29. Question: Queen Latifah – hit or no hit?

    as remarked here, i’m down.
    i’d limit myself to the smaller avatars of her, though.

    i do love me a nice solid woman. as one of the other posters here has said, there’s nothing more humbling than fucking a woman as hard as you can and still having her goad you on to hit it harder.

    however, the heather carolin physique has its upsides, too. there are all kinds of creative positions in which you can tap that, which won’t work for thicker girls.

    i like ’em best somewhere in the middle. thick enough to hit it without breaking it, but still supple.

    Chuck, now you are changing the context of your original statement. Your original statement was that ubermasculine heteros view dance as gay, period. Now you’re changing it to watching ballroom dancing in a room full of men. Two very different scenarios.

    Yes, watching partner dancing in a group of guys is somewhat gay, but ANYTHING overtly sexual and intimate is going to seem gay when done by people of a single gender. For example, a guy whipping out his cock is not inherently gay. A guy whipping out his cock fearlessly in front of a hot chick without fear of rejection is a pretty badass hetero move when it works. A guy doing the exact same thing in a roomful of guys? Gay. Using the “room full of guys” context, you can make any bold sexual statement now seem gay. Changing the context to “a roomful of guys” changes your original premise.

    Sports and dancing have different uses in the development of a man. Sports and military service teach a man how to relate and work with and compete against other men. Dancing teaches a man how to convey his sexuality to and dominate and lead women. A well rounded man was expected to be well-versed in all of these things.

    In Andrew Jackson’s time and throughout the history of other cultures dancing was viewed as a more masculine endeavor.

    yes, because in Andrew Jackson’s day men in the west were not afraid of their women, were not buying into radical feminism and were unapologetic about wanting to lead an interaction with a woman and having a male, dominating sexual swagger. That’s my whole point. In cultures where men are masculine and comfortable dealing with women and being in charge, dancing is a masculine endeavor. In a society where straight men only feel like they have their intellect to offer and are afraid of physically leading a woman or openly advertising their sexual prowess, they won’t dance. In western society only gay men are openly embracing their own sexuality and are unintimidated by women, so they are the only ones in the west dancing. This creates the current attitude of associating gayness with dancing among western men.

    Take Americans for example. Which American people are most likely to be unapologetic about being macho and dominant over their women? Proles, rednecks, black guys and various immigrant groups. And those are also the cultures most likely to emphasize dance as well. Look at some rednecks for example, they can line dance for hours on end without a hint of irony.


  33. “Chuck, now you are changing the context of your original statement. Your original statement was that ubermasculine heteros view dance as gay, period. Now you’re changing it to watching ballroom dancing in a room full of men.”

    I guess if you want to split hairs we can. Watching ballroom dancing with your boys is more gay than watching football, in the context of the meaning of the word gay here. This is just a discussion about the fluid scale of heterosexuality.

    The discussion pertains to what is perceived as gay. This is a subjective perception on the part of your social group. My point to Jaak is that knowingly banging a tranny is much more gay than having “normal” sex with a woman. He says that if we were worried about engaging in things that are perceived as gay then we wouldn’t dance or talk to women because those are perceived as gay by other guys.

    I think you misconstrued my initial point. The point is that those who come off as ultra-masculine (the tough guy with his arms crossed standing against the wall in the club) is going to perceive dancing as gay. Dancing is by no means gay. The majority of men would think that banging a tranny is gay. Guys like Jaak, who fall into the right tail on this subject, believe that its ok to stick it to a tranny.

  46. *sigh*

    T, don’t you see the contradiction on how you demanded greater shaming for gayness and started talking about how fear of shaming for gayness has ruined dancing for so many guys?

    johnny five, Swedishness became synonymous with gayness since Swedishness was synonymous with urbanness. Rednecks grow up with strict gender roles because the difference in ablities rules their social world. There are female computer programmers, female truck drivers, female mechanics… but there aren’t any female lumberjacks. It’s just too much for women.

    Urban people don’t have it fixed, so they all have a bit of gender confusion. Rednecks don’t have that. When you cut down trees, you can wear high heels and you’ll still be less gay than any city boy. In my home town, us true redneck kids were the most likely to try to learn dancing as a teen, since we had the easiest time ignoring accusations of gayness (and much fun accusing the more fearful, like Swedes).

    I think shaming someone for sleeping with someone with the same chromosomes is different than shaming someone just for learning to dance, but I guess we’ll have to just agree to disagree on this point.

  49. Can we vote for fictional characters? I’ve just started watching “How I met your Mother” on dvd, and the main character, Ted, is a huge pussy! It is infuriating to watch his interactions with women.



  50. The protagonist from Slumdog Millionare (warning: spoilers below). Pure beta; the movie is best understood as pure beta fantasy (hence it is doing well commercially and may get an oscar nomination). The gawky lead gets dominated by every person he interacts with, including his alpha gangster brother (who takes the virginity of the beta’s great one-itis love), but he perseveres as a nice guy and winds up winning 20 million rupees on a gameshow, leading his brother to repent, his great love to find him, and all of India adoring him. The movie wants to comment on mob violence, police corruption, and poverty, but the championing of the beta is the main theme. Naturally, the movie ends with the protagonist kissing (his first sexual contact) the love of his life, the reward for his keeping his nice guy attitude in the teeth of an alpha-dominated third world. A nice fairy tale.


  51. Even though I agree with the fictional examples given, in this era of Apatow and Kevin Smith movies, if we allow fictional protagonists we’ll soon be swamped with too many options. There’s a new beta-glorification movie coming out every other week nowadays.


  52. Fictional Beta: Alan Harper on the show “Two and a Half Men.” He’s a foil to his Alpha brother, played by Charlie Sheen.


  53. if we allow fictional protagonists we’ll soon be swamped with too many options.

    I just saw that and I agree. But here is one more fictional Beta: Wall-E.

    I wonder if the ubiquity of beta-gets-the-girl movies — this goes back at least to the 1980s — is “nefarious” in its intent because it’s giving bad advice to boys, or if it’s “laudable” in trying to steer girls toward liking beta guys.

    For guys like Apatow, I’d say it’s more like being given a 50 million dollar budget to construct their vision of a perfect world.

    that’s a good question.

    here’s a good answer:
    it’s nefarious, because the boys make the moves.

    likelihood that the boys’ active “moves” will be affected by media bombardment: very high.

    likelihood that the girls’ unconscious attraction buttons will be affected by media bombardment: zero.
    in fact, this should be a negative number. the more play that these betas get in hollywood, the MORE women will yearn for the alpha “rebel” that breaks the stereotype.

  58. on December 28, 2008 at 7:16 pm | Reply Cannon's Canon

    I’m going to throw a curveball here and nominate the Detroit Lions as a cumulative Beta of the Month. They are truly the trademark whipping boys in the NFL world of alpha-dominance. I could narrow my vote to the head coach Rod Marinelli, who was left speechless last weekend by an awkwardly phrased question regarding his daughter potentially marrying a better defensive coordinator. (You see, he hired his son-in-law to spearhead this year’s worst defense). Here’s the link for your amusement:


    The mainstream media backlash against the reporter testifies to Marinelli’s position in the beta paradigm. One may argue that any NFL franchise is too alpha by inference to be beta at all, but the Lions are statistical outliers as the first 0-16 team in league history.


  59. I think this is the best one, whoever wrote this must be a good candidate of BOTY. Yes, that’s you Roissy 🙂 :



  60. CC:

    The Detroit Lions are omega, not beta. If you want beta, go no further than the Dallas Cowboys. Their coach and GM (Wade Phillips and Jerry Jones) aren’t even leaders of children much less leaders of men. They have a hallmark of the beta: they shot their load too early. The difference b/w them and the Lions, and thus beta and omega is that at least the Cowboys had a shot. They just couldn’t come through in the clutch. Another beta trait. The Cowboys are the guy in the club, clutching his drink, shaking his head, looking at the big boys dance with the hot chicks. The Cowboys (my team btw) are beta from top down. Wade Phillips (son of Bum Phillips) has a doughbaby face and a weak chin. He garners no respect from his players. Although Romo is banging a hot chick, she has taken the limelight way too many times if we are considering him for alphadom.

    Although Tom Brady has had women in his life in the spotlight (for spreading his seed with them), I don’t think I’ve ever heard of Giselle Bundchen detracting from Brady’s playing performance. If that shit got out of line, Brady would call up his second string or else Bill Belichick would. I think I have blog fodder.


  61. Chuck — good points but let’s take it further.

    Guys like Peyton Manning or Eli Manning have carefully cultivated public personas that avoid arrogance and one-up-manship and obnoxiousness. A true “Alpha” for both women AND men must get women aroused by social and physical dominance and get men to applaud by NOT AROUSING MALE JEALOUSY. Back in hunter-gatherer days this got unwise Alphas a spear in the back and even in Caesar’s day created an “unfortunate” outcome.

    Tom Brady’s commercials fell off the planet, because he aroused male jealousy and dislike by appearing both arrogant and entitled, with his actress and supermodel women. The Mannings both married hot women but you never see them. Instead they play the “dumb but canny” funny jock that Terry Bradshaw popularized.

    Yep the Cowboys are totally beta, with Romo copying the look of Brady with that dumb cap. Wade Phillips is a joke, and Jerry Jones can’t even garner up Deion’s respect anymore.

    But a weirder one is Herm Edwards. If you have seen him in Training Camp on NFL Network, that guy is pure Alpha, and driven. He works hard and is in great shape. He takes no BS. Yet his team is about one step away from Detroit territory.
    I agree that the Beta gets the girl stuff is stupid, particularly when the girl has already banged the Alpha and is therefore not particularly worthwhile having. But the Alpha gets the girl is just going to appeal to women and gays and not make any money.

    Stories are supposed to tell boys and young men how to become the “proper” man and the old paradigm of restraint, self-control, compassion, self-sacrifice, physical and emotional bravery, and decency no longer work, but actively REPEL women who DISLIKE most of these characteristics and HATE them in combination with each other (particularly bravery matched with compassion and self-control).

    What these current crop of Apatow and Smith movies, are likely to do, is create a BIGGER crop of AFC who will end up expressing HUGE bitterness to women when he finds out that following the “rules” of the movies gets him nothing.

    The football analogies to alphas and betas are going to get out of wack pretty quickly here. The NFL is full of cap-enforced parity that is reinforced by the worst team getting the best draft position. The league is geared to have every team go 8-8 and give fans their “any given sunday” faith. The cap prevents a monopoly of talent, so the traditionally successful franchises have built themselves up on talent evaluation, game preparation, and gameplan execution. Out of 32 teams, 12 make the playoffs; the next 4 “underachieved,” and the bottom sixteen were inferior. Those teams get a token pat on the ass with the higher draft picks.

    Nature’s alphas make up only 20% of the male populations, the rest being betas. Omegas, on this blog, were created as a tag for the true freaks of nature – outliers several standard deviations below the norm. Alphas are not vastly superior freaks of nature; they are just the cream of the crop that girls want to have their sex with.

    In the NFL world, the Lions are the historical omegas of the league. They would be the least desirable sum of characteristics and a comfort for betas to indulge themselves in by comparison. However, in real world, blog comment terms, NFL players have a very high alpha mean. Women want to have sex with them for their money, fame, and athleticism REGARDLESS of their game, which would be tightened by the huge confidence boost those inherent traits provide them. Men admire NFL players without poignant jealousy, since their physical prowess is so unique and well-honed as to be beyond reach.

    Now, I’ve established that women want to have sex with NFL players as some sort of norm. Roissy has reminded us that simply being “leaders of men” does not conclude alpha status. We may remember the mailbag story of the rich, handsome entrepeneur who was such a doofus that his ho-hum drinking buddy hated going to the bar with him. The mean beta admires the alpha and is flattered to keep his company. That man was no alpha.

    The Cowboys just finished 9-7, “underachieved” in football terms, and still would have tens (if not hundreds) of thousands of fanboys lining up to drink a beer with them – an equal number of women wanting to bed them at their whim. Even average or shitty teams command this type of following. You can amuse yourself with this link as my factual evidence: http://deadspin.com/sports/will-demps-is-sensitive/if-only-the-large-breasted-hot-women-would-leave-athletes-alone-290158.php

    Romo and T.O. are the alpha equivalents of peacocking PUAs with feather boas in Vegas. Sure, they piss you off with their bravado and posturing, but they are still alpha by way of their notch count. Brady developed into more of a “models and bottles”-style metropolitan playboy alpha, but your jealousy does not dilute his status as a man with whom women want to have sex with. And honestly, as a football fan, are you really walking away from a chance moment to break bread with your team’s players because they lost 2.5 more games this season than Vegas predicted?

    Here is where the distinction is made. The Lions have reached a point of lowliness that men, against all odds, no longer want to be like them. They may have wealth, attractiveness, and fame, but no one in their city will be floating any drinks down their way this winter. Sure, they’ll still get some degree of unflinching pussy because of their go-to traits, but the vital difference is that they no longer command the respect of beta males. I would not want a Detroit Lion winging for me at the bar. When since prohibition has this statement made no sense? Lions carry a stigma of undesirability that is trademark in betas. This incredible phenomenon within the pro football populace earns them my BOTM nomination.


  63. CC / Whiskey:

    All good points. I love this discussion.

    NFL players, coaches, and owners are all alpha compared to the rest of us. We have to put them all on a similar scale.

    We have to equate wins in the league as measure of alphaness. Wins are analogous to pussy in the real world. The best way to gear your team up to win is to have a strong leader, a leader of men, in a position of power. Usually this is a strong coach, quarterback, or defensive core. Wade Phillips, who actually may be the only true beta in the NFL on absolute terms, is the coach of a beta team. They win, but not enough to put them in the upper eschelon (top 17%) of teams. Odd that playoff contenders make up close to 20% of the league any given year. Those teams that are at the top, year in and year out, are the most alpha. Those also-rans are dispersed between greater and lesser betas.

    Also, to me, alpha in the real world is relative in a lot of ways. While pussy-getting may not be a zero-sum game, at some point guys are going to move in on another’s turf. The battle for pussy that ensues sorts out the alphas from the rest. If you run with a crowd of alphas, your social position is determined by how you compare to the other alphas in your crew. If I run with a bunch of Dungeons and Dragons nerds and get laid twice a year, I’ll be alpha compared to my DD-playing friends but nothing compared to a group of high-powered pussy mongers. As with football, Tony Romo may be alpha amongst a group of lesser men, but he’s nothing compared to the set he runs in.

    Regarding Herm Edwards; his GM was incompetent and he isn’t the smartest coach in the world. It’s like the guys that Roissy cites that are alpha in their core but don’t know how to work it to their advantage.

    I still regard Tom Brady as king of the hill in pussy-getting and football winning. I think he could get more chicks than any other player in the league. I think his persona the past few years is the perfect mix of edginess and aloofness that Roissy points out as being top-shelf alpha. I think men would follow him and women would want to date him. To me that’s the mark of the penultimate alpha.


  64. This blog strikes me as pretty beta, but then again he has a ton of female fans so maybe it works for him:



  65. on December 30, 2008 at 2:45 pm | Reply Cannon's Canon


    I feel like you are steering the conversation thread toward your Monday morning quarterbacking for the topic du jour Cowboys. First of all, your math is off: 6 of 16 teams make the playoffs per conference, which is 37.5%, too robust for alpha delineation. Secondly, calling the Cowboys and their coach ‘beta’ is out of left field. If they had won just ONE SINGLE extra game this season, they’d have made the playoffs – two more wins and their fans could surely have no gripes about the team or coach.

    As I said, the alpha/beta paradigm does not apply to pro sports. Every game’s losing team would be labeled beta that particular week. Alpha designations would be spread out to a majority of players because of their success banging women.

    The Cowboys might be a beta team this week or even this month, but in terms of regular guys, as you said yourself, they are all extremely alpha. The reason I can nominate the Lions in good conscience is that they are no longer alpha by designation. They have been NFL beta for so long that they have finally reached Regular beta level. Against incredible odds, the Lions have pissed away their de facto alpha credibility. It is the event of a lifetime, which is why it garners consideration despite bending the threshold of conformity.

    The BOTM awards this year will predictably go to either antagonizing greater betas who offend us with their blatant shortcomings or bottom-scraping lesser betas who foster our contempt with their disgusting mantras.


  66. CC,

    I’m not really Monday morning quarterbacking; I knew the Cowboys were going to get stomped that game, and they are my team. All I had to do was look at the fact that they have a weak coach and a weak quarterback. The two key leadership spots are occupied by these types of guys so it’s no surprise that they are left on the outside staring in.

    I can easily visualize Wade Phillips and Tony Romo as the guy in the club watching all the big men dance with the hot chicks. Romo and company aren’t complete losers like the Lions though. They, like beta men, at least gave it a shot. They made an attempt, but because they lack tight game, they came up short.

    And you say: “If they had won just ONE SINGLE extra game this season, they’d have made the playoffs”

    True……but they didn’t.

    If I would have just made the right move at the bar or the coffeeshop, I would have got the girl. But I didn’t. Sometimes just one little tweak can change everything. Who is alpha and who is beta is determined by the results of your actions, not by the hypotheticals and what-ifs. I could rationalize that IF I wasn’t afflicted with micropenis and IF I didn’t have halitosis girls would be smearing their vaginas on my face, but that’s not the case.


  67. on December 31, 2008 at 2:28 am | Reply Cannon's Canon


    This is true, but even Roissy doesn’t claim to bat 1000. The Cowboys won more games than they didn’t this year, and that’s sort of a norm for them, moreso than plenty of other teams.

    If a guy banged nine chicks (or any particular number) this fall, is ‘just one more’ really an alpha distinction? It’s tough to qualify with quantitative stats, which is why I think you can’t use football statistics purely to identify football betas. The Lions qualify as betas with qualitative (and quantitative) disgrace.

    Btw, I was about to blast your Brady pick for penultimate alpha with some incorrect tallies before I thankfully did a quick google search. Apparently, he banged out a handful of pretty hot, semi-famous broads after he got famous himself, although it’s not a masterful public tally just yet by any stretch. I saw Brady’s girlfriend his senior year at Michigan, apparently his high school sweetheart. She wasn’t a dud, but I could honestly say I’d had better. I suspect that plenty of his highlight-reel scores came as a product of his superlative NFL resume (implying wealth, athleticism, and fame). Brady has long been his team’s captain, validating your ‘leader of men’ vision, but we should be careful to distinguish the incumbent on-field leadership of any quarterback to the off-field leadership of an alpha (if we are going to use that characteristic as an indicator). Brady’s string of consecutive long-term relationships and modest number of publicly identified notches points more toward the upper end of Roissy’s ‘lesser alpha’ designation. I realize that we must control for his unknown tallies, but I do offer my own prediction based on no presentable evidence: Brady pulls tail in the bottom 50th percentile at a Pro Bowl. He’s an all-time great, no doubt, but no way is he running game like other NFL alphas.

    For the record, I consider some of the ‘penultimate’ alphas of my lifetime to be Jordan, Jeter, Tyson, De Niro, Michael Douglas, Mark Wahlberg, Scott Baio, and a late run at greatness by David Duchovny. Charles Haley also cannot be denied. http://kissingsuzykolber.uproxx.com/2008/08/charles-haley-would-like-you-to-watch-him-masturbate.html

    Also Peter North, checkered past and all. Schwarzenegger could top the list, although his recent ‘green’ kick suggests he’s been neutered. Ron Jeremy since I’m mentioning porn stars, and Wilt the Stilt, although the publicity of his ludicrous total seems beta. We can calculate gradual tells, after all. I’m sure I’ve omitted some by accident, especially rock stars, but I hate their brand of peacocking. They wouldn’t score at a Pro Bowl party IMO either.


  68. Considering their offensive talent, the Cowboys were a team whose whole was less than the sum its part. It’s like a guy who has the face of Tom Cruise, a 6’2 built, six-pack abs but has crippling approach anxiety and low self esteem. Like the Cowboys, the things he has going for him are enough to give him slightly better than average results. With the right coaching however, Dallas and this hypothetical male would be unstoppable.

    Oh, and add Warren Beatty to your list.

    that last word really says it all – beta fool stays at home and takes care of the kids while his wife works/travels and f*cks her artist boy toy. and, when she’s home, he doesn’t even get to have sex with her.

    according to tilda: “It’s the way we have been for nearly four years. I’m very fortunate. It takes some extraordinary men to make a situation like that work”

Before anyone daft responds about how “beta” that is, take into consideration that, for someone with a hell of a lot more to lose than a million dollars or so, that’s a perfectly fine value proposition.

    With people like that, there is so much going on behind the scenes that it’s ridiculous to form an opinion based off of news article.

    There are so many “WTF” quotes in the story, its tough to compile them all:

    “When it came to dating, her taste ran more to bad boys with nice cars. Yet he was the one she turned to whenever she was upset. “He was always the person who calmed me,” she said. “He was there when other boys broke my heart.” He was also there when she was hospitalized with Crohn’s disease their sophomore year and the medication she took made her overweight and depressed. He tried to convince her that they belonged together, but she resisted.”

    “I felt David was the right person for me, but I didn’t feel ready to be with him,” said Ms. Lichtman, who was not sure what she wanted.”

    “The bride is the oldest of six children. Her sisters, (from left to right) Leeshy, Erica, and Lori, toasted the couple and welcomed Mr. Deckelbaum to their family. Erica said, “I always thought they should get married. Even when she had other boyfriends.”


  79. Whoever it is, he should be someone famous, though. That’s when the truth is unmasked — it’s like when two people win the lottery, that’s a real test of who knows how to manage money.

    He’s the main bread-winner, she works part time in special education making chickenfeed and gets summers off. When he comes home from a hard day’s work [including in the summer], he must often cook meals and clean up, cuz feminist doctrine requires the male appliance unit to do at least 50% of housework.

    She’s 3rd generation Italian-American, he’s standard-issue WASP. She kept her last name. Their kids have super-ethnic Italian first names (Lucia, Isabella). The kicker is that all 3 kids have HER last name, not his.

    My uncle is a stereotypical thankful beta. He’s in his 50s now, and I think he’s woken up to the fact that he got a raw deal. He has no one to blame but himself.

    It’s provided me with a textbook case of what NOT to do.



    • That’s not a feminist, that’s a lazy child. She must think feminism means victimization and special privileges.

      This woman is a good reason to evaluate prospects besides attractiveness when marrying a woman, or risk losing half your property and money in child-support payments.

      Alternately, you could make her sign a prenup and knock her up, after which her looks will quickly fade and you will divorce her, losing nothing.

      But that’s called not taking responsibility for your actions. *shrugs*


  85. Oh yeah, forgot one other thing. After 2 kids she wanted another one and he didn’t. So she went off the pill without telling him and became “accidentally” pregnant. It’s clear she thinks of the guy is a for sperm and cash delivery vehicle.

    2) married a woman who loves him rather than settles for him. You don’t need to be a top 10% genetic/wealth/fame specimen to get a girl to love you. All you need is Game.

    3) Kept her in love with him. Game does a marriage good.

    What most of those BOTY schmucks did was marry immoral women who were settling for these guys and further aggrevated the situation by acting like betas every day of their marriage.

While I have no problem with scrimping, saving, and freezing my spending until things pick up, my girlfriend of five years, whom I love very much, has started to become very anxious about it. In more lucrative times, when we both had good jobs, we did a lot together. However, in the absence of funds on my part, her general demeanor toward me has become more acerbic and distant. Whenever she suggests we go out and do something, I calmly explain that I’m broke and can’t afford any discretionary spending. She says I have a credit card and could use it if I really wanted to. I respond that that would be completely irresponsible. Then she gets mad and sulks about being bored. Now I’m worried our relationship was only good in proportion to our respective incomes. I’m also starting to worry she’s spending way more than she should, but when I bring it up, she tells me not to “parent” her. I would rather lose a job than lose the girl I love, but it seems being poor is easier when you’re alone. How do I convince her to settle down without seeming like I’m lecturing her?

  113. Women of Arizona State now to select the ten most pathetic betas on campus! Ironically, this is presented in the guise of “countering the anti-male agenda”.


    Friday, February 20, 2009 9:50 PM

    On campuses across the nation, young women are enthusiastically taking the stage throughout the month of February chanting a four-letter word for women’s body parts, recreating child rape and degrading men as part of The Vagina Monologues.

    Chapters of the Network of enlightened Women (NeW), a book club for culturally conservative women on over a dozen campuses nationwide, have been countering this play on many campuses by, for example, posting signs and handing out educational information about the play. Rather than just passing out literature, the women in the Arizona State University (ASU) chapter of NeW decided to start their own event: An Annual Gentlemen’s Showcase.

    At the March 3rd Showcase, this NeW chapter will honor the top ten gentlemen at ASU to show appreciation for those men who treat women with dignity and respect, and to counter the anti-male agenda of The Vagina Monologues. Since January, students have been nominating male ASU students for performing a gentlemanly act. The ten most-nominated gentlemen will be honored at a catered dinner event. [After which they will go home alone, as they always do, and comfort themselves with Mother Thumb and her Four Daughters…]

    A buddy forwarded me this angry review of the Watchmen movie, explicitly the attempted rape scene. The crux of the indignation comes from the unacceptability of using physical force to dominate others. It’s not particularly profound; in fact, the author actually uses more space to explain the depths of their outrage than the actual reason for it, which apparently needs no such explanation. The author also goes on to describe the fervent campaigning they have done on behalf of their emotion.

    I expected to find a womens’ studies major attaching her name to the byline. Lo and behold: this champion of thought censorship is a fine young man in his second year of higher learning. Obviously he had to pull himself out of the sea of pussy he swims in to weigh in for his college newspaper. I nominate this heavyweight for BOTM.



  128. Why do psychopaths exist? The ladies help the psychopaths reproduce by going to bed with them. Men who are narcissistic, self-obsessed, liars, psychopaths, Machiavellian, and thrill-seekers get laid more.

    Bad boys, it seems, really do get all the girls. Women might claim they want caring, thoughtful types but scientists have discovered what they really want – self-obsessed, lying psychopaths.

    A study has found that men with the “dark triad” of traits – narcissism, thrill- seeking and deceitfulness – are likely to have a larger number of sexual affairs.


    As someone who has been “diagnosed” as a psychopath on more than one occasion, by different medical professionals, I will state from experience that women (overall, in my biased experience) are exceedingly “willing” to be manipulated.

    “Nice” guys trying to play the role of a “bad” guy seems exceedingly ridiculous to me. I can con/charm girls because I’ve had to charm/con everyone my entire life to a degree. It isn’t “I’m a psychopath, so let the ladies pour in.” I can only speak for myself, but I just want to feel “good”, “happy”. I just want certain chemicals in my brain to release so that I find something “pleasant”.

    I think labeling people like myself as “jerks” and whatnot, is funny, in that there is generally no intent to harm. I’m not trying to put others in physically or emotionally distressing situations, I just happen to view the world in how things affect me (the best way I can put it). I’ll lie because it helps me out. I’ll charm because it helps me out. And I don’t truly see anything wrong with that. I’ve been told lying, etc. is wrong since I was 3 years old. I just never “got it”, I guess. Can you tell me what’s wrong with not telling the truth? Like really tell me. Try. I don’t think anyone can explain it. It’s all bullsh*t. How does a lie hurt anyone? Does it not attempt to (generally) comfort someone. Telling them what they want to hear… Saying “I love you”, not because you its true, but because there’s an awkward silence or somthing, and you know she will smile to herself for a moment perhaps? And that’s “wrong”?

    It’s like the movie American Pie, where Tara Reid just wanted the guy to say he loves her. Why not do it? Its merely a phrase.

    On the subject of whether women, if they could choose, would prefer “normal” or “psychopathic” children, is entirely a case by case basis. Yes, there are benefits to being of my mold. I am very sucessful financially, I am of very high intelligence, I have always gotten women (and male hanger-ons/sidekicks/friends), the list goes on. But I’ve also been the eternal bane of anybody who has been in my way, or interfered. There’s still the part of me that questions whether or not I’ve ever truly been “happy” as everyone else describes it, even for a moment. My greatest “happiness” comes from my own achievements, and from succesfully “duping” people. It’s fun. It’s godd@mn hilarious. Maybe I don’t distinguish “Happy” and “Fun”. Becasue they’ve always been identical to me.

    To clarify after reading my post, I realize that:

    “Saying “I love you”, not because you its true, but because there’s an awkward silence or something, and you know she will smile to herself for a moment perhaps? And that’s “wrong”?”

    Does make it sound as though I would say “I love you” just so that she would smile to herself. That is not the case it more of a “how is this action going to benefit me in the future” mindset.

    Man dies catching his suicidal girlfriend after she jumped from seventh floor

    By Mail Foreign Service
    Last updated at 11:19 AM on 26th March 2009

    A devoted boyfriend was killed when he caught his suicidal lover after she threw herself from the seventh floor of the couple’s apartment building.

    Amazingly, the woman survived the fall – although she suffered a number of broken bones.

    The couple had been heard arguing in their flat in the southern Chinese city of Quanzhou before the tragedy.

    Witnesses said they heard the woman threatening to kill herself.

    Her boyfriend, named only as Mr Wang, was later seen on the street outside the building, pleading with the girlfriend not to jump.

    She was said to be incoherent when questioned by police, the Straits Capital News reported, sometimes giving her age as 18, and other times as 30.

    She also appeared to be unclear about how she fell from the balcony, medical staff said.

    Wife Bites Chained Husband – New York Post

    Listen to this high voiced faggy wuss scream!


  132. Willard Libby

    Yeah that guy is a total wuss.

    But it’s also a disgusting situation. That 911 (white by the sound of her voice) operator put him through hell while he’s being repeatedly hit and or bitten by his ex wife who has handcuffed herself to him. Massive number of questions all assuming its all his fault while he’s in pain, and it soon becomes clear how one sided the violence is. That wouldn’t remotely have been the case if the genders were reversed.

    Further if he had retaliated by hitting her back until she stopped, or even grabbing her and forcing her out the door causing scratches or a torn shirt or some such, or wrist bruises on her, or less, despite the circumstances he would have been arrest and kept in jail overnight before having a chance for someone to make his bail. Further he would have had to hire a lawyer and spent one or two thousand dollars to get out of the charges, and probably it still would have taken three months while the waited to see if the ex wife would press charges, before he was able to stop coming down to court with his lawyer. Further if she did press charges, it would go to trial costing many more thousands unless his lawyer convinced the prosecutor to offer a plea bargain. In which case he’s have to got to one night a week for a number of weeks feminist anti male violence re-education camp.

    Oh and if they were still living together e.g. this happened while they were still married but perhaps a divorce was pending, HE might very well be order to leave the house or apartment he entirely did and was required to continue to pay for, pending the resolution of the case, months away. Really. For this little, in some jurisdictions such as parts of California and New York City and many others. The jurisdiction matters mostly for how hardball the prosectutor applies the federal violence against women act, sponsor by our current Vice President, Biden. That attrocity of males are guility and women almost certainly never are until the male is proven innocent, and boy will he pay until then.

    All this to with minimum violence, and attempted no violence, prevent himself from being handcuffed by his ex.

    Such is the state of hyper feminist oppression, yes oppression, of men under numerous circumstances today. Divorce is another such.

    (Because we know how horrible the not extraordinarily restrained men are even today in America, courtesy of the feminist informed and heavily constituted media.)


  133. And no THAT situation would never happen to an alpha, certainly not all of it. (A trick handcuffing conceivably could, god knows there are women who stalk alphas, but she’d probably be too scared.)

    But sure domestic violence oppression can and does happen to alphas too including in situations where he hasn’t acted excessively by any rational calculation given what she is doing to him, especially when the female thinks she’s losing him. As well completely false accusations happen with some frequency these days, especially in divorce and esp divorce with kids, or even when a gf is asked to move out.

    “My girlfriend refused to become my wife unless I agreed to have a child. ”

    “It’s not that I wasn’t a great fan of marriage — it’s actually one of my favorite institutions, right up there with Social Security, a free press, and Major League Baseball.”

    “So in exchange for my girlfriend’s hand in marriage, I agreed that I would — eventually — have a child with her.”

    He ends up learning he’s infertile and helps pick out the sperm donor he wants his wife to use for artificial insemination.

    “But a new life began that day, hers and mine. And every diaper I’ve changed, every spinach-covered bib I’ve cleaned, every dollop of spit-up I’ve worn on my shoulder, has put the specter of the sperm donor further and further behind me.”

    I’m a 30-year-old, mildly genderqueer, bi-leaning-het male virgin. I’m not uncomfortable around women—pretty much all of my friends are women—I don’t really have any confidence issues, and I know I’m not a prude. But for reasons too complicated to get into here, I just haven’t gotten around to screwing anybody yet. I’m waiting for the right person, and it just hasn’t happened yet. I don’t want to have sex with somebody who’s drunk or emotionally vulnerable, or manipulate anybody, and it’s very important to me that sex be (among other things) a form of affection and not isolated sex-for-sex’s-sake.

    I know I’m the only person who can answer the question of whether I want to have sex right now. But do I need to have sex right now? Because one day I’m going to fall in love, and it’s going to get sexual. The message I hear from a lot of people I respect is that I’m going to pay a price for waiting until then to get laid. Am I? Am I probably going to be okay?

Her hair, dyed pale blond, is swept back into a David Bowie-style peak. Her face is a pale canvas free of makeup. The look is androgynous, punk, regal, and out there. Some might call it (as was said of her avant-garde Lanvin Oscar get-ups) fashion-person weird…

    Swinton has called from her home in Nairn, Scotland – her family’s roots there can be traced to the ninth century – where she lives with the writer and painter John Byrne, the father of her 11-year-old-twins, as well as with her boyfriend, Sandro Kopp, a painter 18 years her junior. “I have children with one person and am in a relationship with someone else,” she says of the arrangement, in her no-nonsense way, “The fact that there is no acrimony… that’s the only thing that’s remotely strange, and that’s really sad – I’m sorry for everyone that it should be so rare”…

    “On the other hand, in the testosterone-poisoned sandbox of the male investor, the most important thing is beating the other guy; the second most important: bragging about it. The long term is somebody else’s problem, and asking for advice is an admission of inferiority. Worrying about risk is for sissies. Leverage is good, since it raises returns — while the market goes up. Is it any wonder the male-dominated world of Wall Street has boomed and busted every few years for more than two centuries?”

  167. Bobby Rio, founder and manager of “The Seduction Bible” His website claims to offer advice on “Alpha living” but the articles he publishes are filled with beta drivel:


    That’s right: A “pick up artist” publishes an advice column from a woman on how to make a woman happy without fucking her. Complete with beta gems such:

    “Whatever you do be on time.”

    “Open the car door, open any door.”

    “We are not all gold diggers…”

    “Dinner is always a proper first date.”

    “Pull up to her house, get out the car walk, her to her door … When you get to the door lean in just enough so that all she has to do is kiss you. Basically give us the option.”

    ….because if there’s one thing an alpha loves, it’s giving women the options.

    It’s time to call Bobby out for the pseudo-alpha he is.

  170. EDMUND L. ANDREWS, NY Times business reporter.

    “My Personal Credit Crisis”

    More in the beta of the month category.




    The guy makes $120,000 a year plus overtime. He pays $4000 a month alimony and child support to ex-wife.

    His second wife is an Argentinian who is a complete spendthrift. He’s unable to reign in her spending. They end up with massive credit card debt.

    He ends up with one of those initial teaser rate sub prime mortgages, ends up not being able to pay the mortgage, and the bank is officially going to foreclose on his house.


    * What makes him beta *

    (1) The way he’s unable to criticize his wife’s spending. She seems to the one driving the ludicrous spending. When he says anything, she yells at him. He doesn’t seem to be able to lay down the line with her.

    (2) Also, this wife is an old friend from high school. He says they weren’t romantic then, but I get the impression that *she* didn’t feel romantic about him then. Because he describes her in her late forties as “fiery and sexy.” So he gets to have her only when they are both divorced with children.

    (3) He is surprised to learn about his wife’s attitudes towards money. He only learns about them *after* they marry. Why didn’t he do due diligence?! This again supports my contention (2) that he always had a crush on her and that she was out of his league until she got divorced in her late 40s. He was so grateful to get to marry her that he didn’t carefully analyze her character to see what he was getting into.

    “My Personal Credit Crisis”

    Patty woke up, irritated by all my movement and my occasional moans of despair. “What’s the matter?” she asked.

    “I can’t sleep,” I answered. “I’m panicking about money, because I don’t know how we’re going to pay all the bills that need to be paid right now.” I wanted her to take me in her arms and reassure me that everything would be O.K. But that wasn’t happening.

    “There’s nothing you can do about it right now,” she answered sleepily.

    “If this keeps on, we’re going to lose the house,” I persisted, sounding less panicked than petulant. If Patty wouldn’t give me comfort, then I wanted her to suffer alongside me. “I don’t know how we’re going to make it. We can’t go on like this.”

    Patty had begged me to grant her a birthday reprieve from my nagging and kvetching over money issues. What I saw as an uncontrollable moment of panic, she saw as another deliberate attempt to browbeat her.

    “I can’t believe you are doing this to me on my birthday,” she hissed in fury. “All I asked for was one day of peace — one day when you weren’t beating me over the head. And here it is, not even daylight yet, and you’re waking me up to berate me about money.”

    “Son of a bitch, what did I do to you?” I asked, punching my pillow in the dark. “Do you think I enjoy having a panic attack? I can’t help what I’m feeling. I’m just scared out of my mind.”

    “That’s it!” Patty snapped, getting out of bed and pulling on her robe. “I’m not going to listen to any more of this. I’m going to sleep downstairs.”

    In the morning, she let me have it.

    “You lied to me,” she told me as I got coffee. “You said that what I saw on the outside was pretty much what you were. But you’re completely different. If I had known what you were really like, I would never have come out here.”

    “My Personal Credit Crisis”

    “…When Saks Fifth Avenue offered her a full-time job selling high-end clothing on commission — something she knew about and loved — she grabbed it.”

    “…Patty spent little on herself, but she refused to scrimp on top-quality produce, Starbucks coffee, bottled juices, fresh cheeses and clothing for the children and for me.”

    ““…You can’t keep second-guessing me,” she told me angrily. “It’s small-minded and petty, and it’s not very attractive.” I was beginning to wonder whether she had any clue about how money worked.”

  181. This guy is totally beta, wrote to the playboy advisory for help, here is what he said word for word.

    “My fiancé just graduated from college and moved in with me. She went home to visit her parents for the weekend. As I was shuffling through our bedroom closet I knocked over some of her boxes and noticed a few DVDs. Only one would play, but it showed my fiancée’s hot college roommate blowing her boyfriend. I had just started jerking off when another girl appeared in the frame. The camera went out of focus as this girl began sucking him, then the camera went back in a close-up of the head of his cock and both girl’s mouths. Just before the film ended, the second girl grabbed his cock and licked the tip. As she did, I could see a ring on her finger. I freeze-framed, and it’s the same ring I bought my girlfriend for our engagement. Should I ask if it’s her? I don’t want to lose her” S.A. Akron, Ohio”

    The last line is very disturbing, he “doesn’t want to lose her.” What he should do is dumb his finance right away, but knowing this loser he wont and it wont be the last time his finance, future wife will cheat on him

    After enough, husband strangles her.

    I’m not sure if this qualifies for “BOTY” or not seeing as he then strangled her. At least he had some kind of retort after years of being the bitch in the relationship. But its certainly a note-worthy article.

    I don’t think the guy has a chance in court. I can only hope he gets the death sentence, because if his wife won’t let him use the toilet, you already know his cellmate isn’t.

    Guys who join a pay site to donate money to random women who want boob jobs. You know they are hoping against hope that their benevolence will result in sexual gratitude. Pathetic because the hope is so misplaced, and because they donate their resources to directly benefit the alphas these women actually sleep with. Relevant quotes:

    “It’s strictly forbidden to exchange actual addresses, e-mail or otherwise, and giving out your real name is cautioned against….About 2,000 men are paying the monthly fee, men who are, in effect, paying money to give money to women they’re told they will never meet.”

    “But persuading strangers to give you money, online as on the street, takes time. Women have to spend hours developing relationships with benefactors, enticing them to send more messages, buy photos and make donations. This may explain why so many of the women on the site are stay-at-home moms, Moore said.”

    “The contributors know that they have had “a hand in changing someone,” Moore said. “It’s kind of knight-in-shining-armorish. It’s sort of science fictionish.””

  191. @Kevin – Heh I wouldn’t have believed this sort of thing easily before Roissy’s blog but women truly hate betas.

    @Roissy (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-469111/Why-Shirley-Valentine-baby-greatest-love-ultimate-betrayal.html)

    Ha the comments are great – women saying they feel sorry she lost the relationship and that men cheat all the time so it’s okay. Men saying how despicable it is and how lucky the guy is that he got away from this.


  192. Wow. I just read the Amis link. It hit me on the forehead like a ball pen hammer.

    A.J. – stories like this this is why your “beta revolution” would never succeed. There are too many Amis’s, Roissy’s, and Roosh’s of the world, and I strongly suspect in Roosh’s and Roissy’s cases they were former “beta” guys who simply found or developed “game” as they got older. In other word’s, the very type of men you would try to recruit.

    Wait it just struck me, read the article carefully. Amis, himself, was a former “beta” type.
    From the Amis article..

    “… despite the fact that he is only 5ft 4in tall, and as a teenager considered himself ‘short-arsed’ and profoundly unattractive. We know of Amis’s fears of his physical inadequacy because one of his former lovers has broken cover to paint an extraordinary and often bitter portrait….”

    Ok, so a short unattractive guy as a teenager, became a writer and after some time developed enough game to flagrantly get away with shite that one would assume ordinary men would be flayed alive for. Probably because of his innate narcissim.

    Ms. Clio must have some words on this article…

    “Which makes one wonder, just how a cad like Amis has charmed so many fundamentally decent women.. “

    Need we actually wonder?

    “one can only gasp in astonishment at Amis’s infatuation with himself…

    His narcissism even extends, as Julie Kavanagh recalls, to him ‘chuckling away as he re-reads his own prose, something he did a lot’. While she cooked, incidentally..”

    I can’t stop laughing now. It was the ’70’s, anyone want to bet dollars to doughnuts that at the time Kavanagh was a total 70’s rad-feminist indoctrinie, and still is?

    The degree to which many women lack true self awareness of their basic motivations never fails to astonish me, decades later one still gets the impression that she, and probably many of his former lovers, don’t quite get it as to why they were so smitten with an excessively short, narcissistic writer, who in essence laughs at his own jokes …

    Can you make this stuff up even?

    “Martin’s defence tactic was to turn the tables of blame, attacking me for making an issue out of something so unimportant. This was Martin at his worst – nasty, facetious and belittling.’

    He called Julie by the nickname ‘Spider’ – probably because he was ‘in her web’. And it was Spider who was with Amis at a London party when he first met the brilliant but tragic artist Lamorna Searle, wife of journalist and Middle East expert Patrick Searle, a friend from his time at The Observer newspaper.

    Within moments, he’d abandoned Julie at the party and crept away with Lamorna, who suffered from manic depression. When he reappeared, Julie saw that his mouth was smothered in crimson lipstick…”

    Starting to read Roissy’s like falling into an abyss, for me. I just recently started reading another blog by a guy I noticed commenting here, Roosh. The paragraph above is something that could have come straight out of his keyboard.

    Wow Amis seems to be ever the cheeky bastard, the more I read this, the more I kinda admire him actually. I don’t want to admire him, but damn, I do.

    I mean, banging Churchill’s granddaughter behind his girlfriend’s back?

    “‘My address book was on the table, lying open at S,’ she says. ‘It was Emma Soames, my best friend.’ For her part, Soames insists to this day that the relationship began only after he had separated from Kavanagh. “

    Blatantly not just flirting but making out with random femes, decades ago, at parties. Sleeping with aristocracy, sleeping with ex wives and girlfriends’ best friends…

    Good god almighty if Amis had come of age in this decade he would probably have a blog. And a highly amusing one. And a higher notch than one could humanly imagine.

    “..Next morning he left her a message, an apology which you may think exposes more about him than a million words: ‘Spider – been gradually dawning on me today how awful I must have been last night. Forgive me.’

    ..is this an attempt at wit or is it plain chutzpah? – that he declares how it dawned on him gradually that his passionate fumble at the party might not have gone down too well with the girl he lived with.

    Despite this, he continued seeing Lamorna… after she had given birth to a little girl, the winsome Lamorna admitted her infidelity to her husband, some 25 years her senior… .

    ..Only when she reached 19 and was about to read English at Oxford did Searle reveal to her that he wasn’t her natural father and that Amis was. Since then, she has become an integral part of the Amis family.

    Incredibly, Julie Kavanagh describes her own feelings during this period as pretty understanding’ “

    Dear God.

    Really, people can’t make this stuff up. As for excuses “it was the 70’s” seriously, I bet you dollars over doughnuts that if this happened today, right now, Amis would not only still get away with it, but his bed notch count would be several times higher because our culture today, essentially, is more tolerant of rakish libertines than ever before in history.

    “She later said of Amis: ‘He was great company, but I don’t think he really likes women.'”

    Ya think? Could he really escape misogyny when so many women let him get away with so much utter shite?

    “There was Victoria Rothschild, daughter of the third Baron Rothschild..”

    Good god, he banged a Rothschild too? This beats the Churchill notch, hands down, because Churchill the senior was perpetually in hock to certain Barons Rothschild. He banged the daughter of one of his girlfriend’s grandfather’s creditors and social senior.

    Banging a Rothschild almost exceeds banging royalty.

    “But with Isobel Fonseca, the trail of women seems finally to have gone cold. While frequently claiming he has no interest in money and is interested only in ‘enduring’ (he means his writing), Amis has been blessed in his second marriage with wall-to-wall contentment that deserted wives everywhere would consider he does not deserve.

    Isobel has provided him with two more children, and he is able to luxuriate at the 100-acre Fonseca family summer residence in the Hamptons on Long Island, where they have almost as many gardeners as roaming deer,”

    The retirement of a rake.

    Again gentlemen, this is why A.J.s “beta revolution” will not come to pass. Too many wealthy “alpha” cads and rakes who are busy around rummaging Rothschild girls will sensibly probably use their social influence and wealth to put an end to the whole affair.


  193. That second link someone posted..
    “Looking back on what happened, it’s as if I was gripped by a temporary insanity when I embarked on a reckless fling. He was a Mexican fisherman, almost 20 years older than me – and as a 33-year-old career woman there’s no doubt I should have known better.”

    Has anyone noticed how many women on the east coast are dating Latino men now? Every time I return to DC, I find more and more women I used to know either married or in strings of repeated long term relationships with Latino immigrants.

    “temporary insanity..”

    No, just the fire in her loins.

    That’s it, reading both of those articles doused the fire of any lingering relationship Political correctness I had inside of my heart.

    Gentlemen, wonder what your girlfriend’s doing while on that week vacation in Mexico without you? She’s sweaty, and writhing around in the arms of old Mexican fishermen. That’s what.

    Oh, and this is directly relevant to the Younger Women thread.

    Only in Anglo-American society are people so utterly un self-reflective as to misunderstand fundamental dynamics in human nature, in our own nature.

    Man remains man, woman remains woman, no matter what the social ambiance.

    Regarding the Shirley Valentine affair in Mexico. I think she’s despicable for her actions not only for the affair but for how she treated the husband after he was willing to raise her son. Shitty.


  195. @aoefe I agree. I’m guessing you are making that statement as a woman? I’m generalising when I say women defend this sort of action – if a given woman finds this as despicable as the rest of us (truthfully) then she’s probably a good catch.

    “With no eligible women in his village, Zhou Pin, 27 years old, thought he was lucky to find a pretty bride whom he met and married within a week, following the custom in rural China.

    Ten days later, Cai Niucuo vanished, leaving behind her clothes and identity papers. She did not, however, leave behind her bride price: 38,000 yuan, or about $5,500, which Mr. Zhou and his family had scrimped and borrowed to put together.

    “She called me soon after she left,” says Mr. Zhou, a slight man with a tentative smile. He says she asked how he was doing, and apologized for the hardship she had caused. “I told her, ‘I will see you again one day.’ “”


  196. Kamal,
    Tru dat, brotha. Tru dat.

    I was *just* talking about this very same topic yesterday w/a lady friend; like you, I am thoroughly convinced that Men, not Women, are the ones who are introspective, on average. The vast majority of Women out there simply have no idea why they do what they do, no self awareness at all. I posit the reason for this is because, they don’t have to. Until the hit the wall, most Women simply don’t have to work as hard to get laid as Men do. For us, we have to figure shit out and solve problems (learn Game, etc.), otherwise, its a long, lonely life for us.

    Trying to explain these things to Women though, is *hard*, because in most cases, what we’re saying comes off as utterly alien concepts. Moreover, the reason why Men will ultimately win the “war of the sexes” is because again, Women aren’t self-aware or motivated to solve problems; most Men are, on both counts.

    As for AJ’s proposed “revolution” I 100% agree with you and other guys who have tried to explain why AJ’s premise is so wrongheaded. Pussy is a POWERFUL motivator, especially for those who’ve never had much to begin with. What is more likely to happen, is that those Betas who either have the saavy or the persistence-or a blend of both-will learn Game and be able to carve themselves a nice niche out there on the market.

    But for the vast majority of Betas, they’ll see just how fundamentally rigged the system is against them, see what Women really want, and note what those Women really think about Betas, and will, in their anger and indifference, simply go off the grid-they’ll disappear as much as possible from the public square. They’ll volunteer and participate in societal functions a lot less, will work just enough to keep a roof over their heads and indulge their hobbies/interests, eschew contact w/Women in general, and whenever possible, avoid paying taxes so as to make life harder for Women who chase down Alphas. Beta Males are by their very nature are more laidback and passive, so AJ’s premise of a Beta Uprising is simply not tenable. However, many in this cohort are smart-some are *very smart*-and they’ll come to the same conclusion I’m laying out right here. Through individualistic passive resistance, more and more Betas, seeing that only a few guys can realisitically “win” w/Game, will simply say “Fuck it” and stop. Stop participating in society, on a whole host of levels.

    We’re already seeing this beginning to happen on the White American landscape, although you and I have seen it at least a decade beforehand on the Black side of America. While its true, on average, a Brotha has more Game naturally, than a White guy, in the hood things are heavily skewed in favor of thee most dominant Males. So, the same dynamic plays itself out in the hood too, just “above the rim” if you get what I’m saying. And a lot of Brothas have figured it out-a whole lotta them simply fall off the grid.

    Sistas understand that finding a good Brotha is HARD-and woe be to a Sista who finds herself the victim of a rape or simple robbery-she better hope the police come quick, because help from the average Beta Brotha ain’t forthcoming.on the trains and subways, the main people you see standing up-Women. Guys aint as inclined to give up their seats as they used to. They know the deal, there ain’t nothin’ in it for *them*, because those same Women will at the very least pine away for some sociopathic Thug Alpha dude, if not breaking him off some mean pussy-while Beta Brotha gets, at best, a weak, perfunctory “thank you” as he stands up for the rest of his busride.

    Brothas done been figured it out, that it simply aint worth it. Which explains, in part, why there is so little civic participation, why rape and other crimes against Black Women are so high, and the like in the hood. Remember, Sistas have been having expanded choice for at least the better part of 4 decades now, thanks to The Great Society, coinciding w/Roe v Wade and the social changes that favored Women, economic and educational opportunities favoring Woman, etc.

    Our White Brothers should take heed. And our White Sisters should be afraid.

    They should be very, very afraid.

    But his potential love match, Angela Sowers, 31, who works in human resources in Sacramento, Calif., persuaded him to give the relationship a shot. She flew out with friends to meet him and the two hit it off.

    Floyd is moving to Sacramento next week and will live with her parents, so the two can date locally.

    Sowers, who has had to foot the bill for a few plane tickets, said she isn’t too worried about his lack of income. She’s hoping he can get his business going in Sacramento.

    “Last year at the Ivy Gordon was allegedly seen crying before “knocking back” shots and openly flirting with men and women.

    Feminist BS money quotes, with my add:
    “Jodi’s [the wrongdoer her] holding up: she’s a strong, stoic girl, [being a slut is empowering!] but she is also acutely aware of the damage she’s done,” a friend of Gordon said.
    “She’s devastated that she’s caused [hey, causation! whaddya know! maybe we’re getting somewhere!] so much turmoil. (She’s) honestly appalled by what’s happened.” [by what happened, ah, so close, so close…Google ‘the knife went in’ by Theodore Dalrymple.]


  205. My apologies to Roissy, his readers, and the woman in question. Upon re-reading the news accounts above, I see no evidence she shagged the biker. Just found in his room and admitted cocaine use to the cops. So, can’t be certain of the shag. Please consider the shag assertion retracted. No shag. Not accusing her of shagging the biker. I take it back. I wasn’t there. Don’t know. Apologies.

    That said, I believe it’s still a good candidate for beta of the month.


  206. Saw this pop up on the ole Facebook today: http://getthisguyawife.com

    “…my social life of late has been pathetic. I have an increasingly difficult time finding single women to date. I have held out hopes that my married friends would help me out. I’ve begged, pleaded, and guilt-tripped my friends into helping me out, to no avail. So I’m going to try one last trick. Bribery.

    That’s right, I’m going to bribe you to help me find a wife. So what’s your motivation? Cash. Cold hard cash. FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS to be exact. If you introduce me to the woman who becomes my wife, I will pay you $5000. If you are a woman, and introduce yourself to me, I will give you a $5000 wedding ring on our wedding day.”

    I knew this guy back in college, and yes, he is as harmlessly creepy and unable to get a girl as he comes across on his website.


  207. From the good old daily mail, a classic.

    Psychic conned lovesick chef out of thousands of pounds by pretending to be his ex-girlfriend

    “the jury heard Mr Trussell, who owns a restaurant in Crouch End, north London, had been devastated after the split with Miss Pratt.

    In desperation he turned to Psychic TV, a Sky and freeview channel devoted to mediums and spiritualists, and rang a premium rate number that was advertised which led him to speak with Lavery, 42, of Brixton, south London.

    “Over a period of eight months, Mr Trussell, 41, was tricked into handing over vast sums of cash, £800 of leather fetish gear, a sofa and even a £6,000 engagement ring.”

    “Mr Trussell said the demands for cash kept coming and he would sometimes refuse if he was low on money. But he ended up giving in as he felt ‘guilty’.”

    After some time he received a message which said Miss Pratt announced she wanted to get married, leading him to buy the engagement ring.

    ‘I thought it was weird because we hadn’t met each other. It was bugging me but I kept thinking it was going to be okay,’ he said.

    Afterwards he said he heard nothing back from his ex, adding he thought it was ‘very rude’ of her.”


    The soul of the beta, he buys a 6000 pound engagement ring (about 10000 dollars?) for a woman he hasn’t seen in months, then when she breaks contact he considers it ‘very rude’.

    The funny thing is that the chef is quite handsome, with a strong nose and facial structure, while the psychic looks ‘beta’. Also the chef owns his own restaurant, which should give him access to a bag of hot young waitresses, if he were so inclined. But no, his dark soul is purest beta.

  214. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2009/06/16/gop-senator-admits-extramarital-affair-campaign-staffer/

    Doug Hampton was some guy working in Senator Ensign’s office. His wife Cindy worked for the Senator’s re-election campaign, during the course of which he repeatedly flooded Cindy’s pussy with Senatorial jizz. (Also worth noting: Ensign was re-elected in 2006, but the affair was 2007-2008, so the “campaign work” was probably not particularly rigorous.)

    After finding out about the affair, Doug not only sticks with Cindy, but he (or maybe Cindy – who knows who wears the pants in their marriage) negotiates a “severance package” for his wife (CEOs get severance packages; campaign aides get jack) and then tries to further extort his boss before overplaying his hand.

    An Omega surely wouldn’t have the grit to blackmail a US Senator, but extortion is terrorism for weak, unimaginative paper-pushers. Extortion as a response to your boss banging your wife is beta.

    Here is the worst of it:

    I am a papa bear about my wife and kids. I really am. I would give up my life without a second thought for any of them, and I struggle every day to be worthy of them. If my wife ever committed adultery, under most circumstances (i.e., true contrition and repentance), I would hasten to forgive her, not only because I love her that strongly, but also because I would see it as my duty, in love, to do whatever I could to make our marriage whole again, for the sake of the children.

    Seriously, cheating is pretty much the worst thing a woman can do to a man. A woman who commits the ultimate betrayal should never be given a second chance. I swear to God, if am ever cheated on, I hope to hell someone is on hand to physically hold me back, because otherwise there will be blood.

  226. Douchebag Swedish father is keeping his child’s gender a secret in order to “avoid preconceived notions of how people should be treated if male or female.”

    Pop’s parents, both 24, made a decision when their baby was born to keep Pop’s sex a secret. Aside from a select few – those who have changed the child’s diaper – nobody knows Pop’s gender; if anyone enquires, Pop’s parents simply say they don’t disclose this information.

    In an interview with newspaper Svenska Dagbladet in March, the parents were quoted saying their decision was rooted in the feminist philosophy that gender is a social construction.

    “We want Pop to grow up more freely and avoid being forced into a specific gender mould from the outset,” Pop’s mother said. “It’s cruel to bring a child into the world with a blue or pink stamp on their forehead.”

    The child’s parents said so long as they keep Pop’s gender a secret, he or she will be able to avoid preconceived notions of how people should be treated if male or female.

    Pop’s wardrobe includes everything from dresses to trousers and Pop’s hairstyle changes on a regular basis. And Pop usually decides how Pop is going to dress on a given morning.

    Pardon me while I puke!

    Anna Nordenström, a paediatric endocrinologist at Karolinska Institutet, says it’s hard to know what effects the parents’ decision will have on Pop.

    “It will affect the child, but it’s hard to say if it will hurt the child,” says Nordenström, who studies hormonal influences on gender development.

    Hard to say? Not hard to say at all that this is nothing less than child abuse.

    For the beta of the century, I nominate the entire nation of Sweden, firstly for having a “gender equality minister” at all, and secondly because that minister said:

    The government considers female and male as social constructions, that means gender patterns are created by upbringing, culture, economical conditions, power structures and political ideology.

  233. Here’s a great beta — just found on isteve.blogspot.com — the beta is the male parent in this couple of course:

    A Swedish couple’s decision to keep their toddler’s gender a secret is stirring debate, especially now that the parents are expecting a second child.

    “Pop” is 2 ½ years old, but so far only those who change the child’s diapers know whether the youngster is a boy or a girl, TheLocal.se, an English-language site for Swedish news, said last week.

    Back in March, the parents gave an interview to the Svenska Dagbladet newspaper, saying they decided not to reveal their child’s sex because they believe gender is a social construction. “We want Pop to grow up more freely and avoid being forced into a specific gender mold from the outset,” said the child’s mother, “Nora.” (The paper used fake names for the entire family to protect their privacy.)

    “It’s cruel to bring a child into the world with a blue or pink stamp on their forehead,” the mother said.

    The parents, both 24 years old, said they never use personal pronouns when referring to the child. They just say “Pop.”

    The tot wears everything from dresses to pants, and Pop is usually the one who decides what to wear on any given morning. Pop’s hairstyle is also changed on a regular basis, so it doesn’t provide any clues.

    Swedish gender equality expert Kristina Henkel told The Local that the experiment could make Pop a stronger person, since he or she won’t be subject to gender stereotypes.

    I am proud to take credit for creating the “she-[noun]” formation! I first did this when I wrote “she-lawyer” on this blog.

    The English language kind of allows the feminization of a neutral noun by adding “-ess” (as in actress) or more quaintly, “-trix” as in “aviatrix” or “dominatrix,” to the end of the word. Alas, such a suffix is inadequate in exploiting the comical effect of a feminine object that is normally understood to be masculine.

    An article about people who are divorced or divorcing and still live in the same house. Common theme: the woman gets the master bedroom, the man sleeps on the couch or in the basement. Clearly the assumption is that the woman is owns the house and is staying, and the man does not own the house and is on the way out.

    Her husband lives in the finished basement, formerly the family’s game room. “We had to take down the pool table so he’d have a place to sleep,” she says. He sleeps on an air mattress, and has his own entrance and a full bathroom, though his only cooking equipment is a microwave.

    Each calls the other before entering their respective domains; they schedule use of the washer and dryer and negotiate evenings out, Ms. Brewster says.

    “He still takes the garbage out and mows the lawn. Sometimes, I will call him and say, ‘I know you’re eating frozen dinners; I cooked extra, come up,'” Ms. Brewster says. “I try to take the high road in front of the kids. Goodness knows they’ve seen the bad side of marriage — the arguing.”

    Both have resumed dating and have even given each other advice on how to get back into the singles world. Ms. Brewster took the photograph of her husband that he put on match.com, the online dating Web site. On some Saturday nights, she says, they hire a baby sitter so they can both go out, and they share their plans so they won’t run into each other.

    Their living situation has scared away some potential suitors. “It freaks a lot of them out,” says Ms. Brewster. “I tell them upfront: Here’s my situation. Eventually I will move on, but I’m not going to do something to mess myself up financially.”

    What a betadouche this guy is. Lives in his wife’s basement, coordinates his love life with her, and is hanging around to facilitate her financial happiness. He is just one step away from that previous BOTM candidate who lives with his wife and her new lover simply in order to be the live-in babysitter for the kids.

    Arturo Gatti was one of the toughest boxers of his generation.

    Here’s a google translation from French about the wife of Arturo Gatti who is suspected in his murder:

    In December 2008, Piedad, housekeeper, was hired by Amanda Rodrigues and Gatti to work in their home. She spent several days in the condominium where they lived and knew their everyday lives.

    Also, Gisele, who was a friend of Amanda since May 2008, learned to know the woman suspected of murdering her husband.

    “Initially I thought they were nice people. I had no problems with the work I was doing there. I didn’t know Arturo, I didn’t even know he was a boxer,”said Piedad.

    “Suddenly, I began to see strange things. I found it strange that it’s always Arturo who rises at night to feed the baby. I am Portuguese, and where I come from, the woman handles such things. On mornings its always he who would get up to feed the baby while his wife slept. Even when returning late at night, he woke up. He did everything for the baby.”

    “When she woke, she would do hair and then go shopping. That’s all she did every day. She didn’t know to work and said that Arturo should make a living. She often bought new clothes she never wore. When the guardian wasn’t available, she asked me to keep the baby so she could leave. It was as if she didn’t care of this baby. ”

    According to what CKAC Sports learned, Gatti gave between $500 and $1000 per day to satisfy his wife. Gatti indicated to friends that he believed she hid the money because, despite the cash he gave her credit cards back full at the end of each month.

    “It doesn’t surprise me at all. One day while I was washing, Arturo came asking me if I checked the pockets before washing his trousers. I said yes and I asked him why he was asking. He said he left $1500 in his pocket, the day before, and they were missing. Without accusing me, he simply asked whether I took the money. I told him no. The whole issue was dropped, he never spoke of it again, he was good with me. ”

    She continues: “I also knew she sent money secretly to her mother. I heard her talk on the phone. But when he came into the room, she changed dialect so he doesn’t understand. She hangs up immediately after for not suspect that she did. I never told anyone. ”

    “She also spoke of the fact she didn’t know the financial figures of the real estate that belonged to her husband. I asked her what that could change, she had just arrived in Montreal. She told me she was young, but very intelligent. ”

    “I know she was trying by all means to convince him to change his will in her favor. From what I understand, his lawyer and his business partner had discouraged. More days passed and the more I realized what kind of person she was. In the end, I was convinced she was in this couple only for the money. ”

    Rodrigues moved to Montreal in May 2008 with Arturo, she was already 5 months pregnant.

    “After the birth of Arturo Jr., I think she was not ready to live the life of mother. She wanted to continue living the single life. Having a baby changes a life. I think that was one reason why they were arguing so much. She was a woman with two faces: nice when she wanted something, but also extremely aggressive when things went less well. I know that a few occasions she prevented him from entering the house while he was under the influence of alcohol. When it happened, he would sleep with his mother. He would not even enter because he knew that argument would follow. One day he told me he had spent the night at his friend to save his mother another explanation. ”

    She took boxing lessons

    “To occupy Arturo had included his wife in private boxing. Three times a week, she would take boxing lessons at the school of boxing Angelo Dibella. When I hear lawyers say she could not kill him, I find it ridiculous. I always felt she was capable of doing so. Moreover, as soon as I knew Arturo died, even before the details, I knew it she had killed him. I do not know if he was drugged or if she paid someone to do it, but it’s sure that she is responsible. ”

    What kind of mother was she? She loved this baby?

    “I can not tell you. I believe she wanted to get pregnant in order to secure her financial future. She had no idea how to care for a baby. She gave him something to eat that no one would give an infant. I’m the one who explained to her how. I felt she didn’t know. Once she had the chance to leave the house without him, she did. I know she insisted that the small Arturo has a Brazilian passport. Arturo, to make her happy, got him one. Now I understand why she insisted so much. It was the money she loved and not Arturo. ”

    And violence?

    “I have never seen violence on his part. One day I arrived and saw the door of the condominium had been forced, but I didn’t ask questions. I do not know what happened with that. Anyway, it was not my business. ”

    What kind of end do you expect?

    “I hope that she will pay for what she did. That man didn’t deserve to die that way. I’ve only known for six months, but he was a good person to me. ”

    Amanda’s friend Gisèle had to sever ties

    “I met her in May 2008, when she had just arrived in the country. She was Brazilian and I Portuguese so we could speak Portuguese. I found nice. We got on well. We often went out together; Arturo also, at times with his friends. We often went dinner together. It was nice, but I already found she had a big mouth and said some things. ”

    “When we went out, she often fighting with her husband, mainly because of things she said. She seemed pleased to fight. I didn’t like it at all, it made me very uncomfortable and I told her a few times. During an argument, I remember that she made an inappropriate remark about Arturo’s father who died several years ago. I found it disgusting. But when she was separated from him, she was more quiet. ”

    “When giving birth to the small Arturo, we went to the hospital to see them. The small bed for the baby was tilted right beside her. For some reason, she placed the baby upside down. I watched my sister to say ‘She’s missing someting’. I had to place the baby, the head up. ”

    “A month after the baby is born, I visited. She dried her hair in the bathroom. She asked me to dress the baby. I asked her where he was. She said she left in the room 15 minutes earlier. I go into the bedroom, the baby was naked on the bed without protection around him and the air conditioning blowing cool air directly at him. The baby was frozen and had lips blue. I panicked. I told her she was crazy to leave the baby like that. She replied that I was right and Arturo had made the same comment before. I began to realize how much she was neglecting the baby. I remember that day of the year, she gave the baby broccoli soup. He had only three months. What she thought? That evening, she was as a stripper in front of my uncles and aunts. It was embarrassing. She also thought it was fun to hold the infant by the feet, head down. She thought it was funny. I seriously started thinking that I had to stop seeing her. ”

    “She cared for her looks and she using a drug to stay thin. She even offered to provide me on the black market via her father who worked in a hospital in Brazil. I checked and the drug was illegal in Canada. I told her no thank you. ”

    “One evening we were to join Arturo and his friends at the Cage aux Sports. She came out of the house dressed as a prostitute. I was embarrassed to walk in the street with her. Even if I asked her to put at least a sweater, she refused saying that her husband hated when dressed this way and that she wanted to see his reaction. During our evening at the restaurant, we talked about children and at one point, she starts to Arturo to all of us: ‘You Arturo, your daughter looks like a retard, she really didn’t look normal.” Arturo went crazy and his friends had him leave the restaurant. She was serious, she didn’t like his daughter Sofia. She wanted Arturo has only the small Arturo in his life. ”

    Gatti had Sofia with his first wife Érika from New Jersey. In an interview given to The New York Daily News, Erika explained that Amanda didn’t want Arturo maintains contact with his daughter. According to her, he was a good father who took his responsibilities.

    “We left the restaurant to come home. She placed the baby in the seat without closing the seat belt. I did it. Once done, she released an album to show me photos of Sofia saying, ‘Look, she doesn’t look like a retard? ” I couldn’t believe my ears, it was really crazy. I asked her how she could say such a thing to her husband. She spent the rest of the evening sending text messages and hateful voice messages on his cell. I remained alone with the baby in the bedroom for three hours. My sister finally picked me up. Just before leaving, she told us: ‘If he thinks that his ex was difficult, he will see how I can be a bitch. One day I’ll finish him! ” In my head it was finished, I could not remain friends with her.”

    The fracture

    “After this crazy evening, I decided to end my friendship with her. I kept contact with other friends who kept me updated on what was happening in their life. I stopped returning her calls and emails. I didn’t even call for her birthday in April. I was told she didnt appreciate that I dropped her. She had just lost two of her friends, me and my sister. Later, I knew Fabrizio, brother of Arturo, and his friends Chris and Tony had also stopped talking to her for different reasons. Things didn’t go well for her friendships. ”

    “A few days later, I heard Arturo was in jail because he didn’t appear in court for an assault case. As far as I know, he does not beat her. I thought that things between them were getting worse. A few weeks before the murder, I was with my mother at the dinner table and told her that this girl was mad enough to kill her husband. When she was angry, she was bad. A few weeks later, I learn Arturo was dead. I immediately knew she had killed him. My intuition was right on it. I am shocked and very sad. Especially for the family and the two small children.”

    I can’t believe Arturo is dead. And killed by some bitch who was pure trash.

    Same thing happened to comic genius Phil Hartman. Fuckin ex call girl, failed model wife Brin murdered him in his sleep.

    Here’s what Arturo was made of.

    Rapper Nas – in the middle of a nasty divorce with R&B artist Kelis – was not allowed to be present at the birth of his son.


  270. The conclusion:


    to this betacular story:


    It’s a heart-vomiting tale of how a used-up middle-aged Spanish lady dupes a lonely, forlorn British Beta into marriage after dumping him over a decade and a half ago to get hollowed out by innumerable Frenchmen. An international romance, if there ever was one!

    After sixteen years and only having her haggard face, depleted fertility, and hooker boots to show for it, she stumbles upon the sappy “long-lost” communique of her beta-in-waiting, discovering that, in true beta fashion, he was still waiting — and so ever eager to claim his now severely depreciated prize. He dutifully rushes to be with her mere days after she calls him back ten years late, never minding that she has intentionally ignored him for over a goddamn decade. Pathetically, he accepts this:

    We met up and fell in love all over again and now we are getting married. I’m just glad the letter did eventually end up where it was supposed to be.

    We’re told that the original relationship had “fizzled out,” even though they had been together a year and engaged. But that’s okay, because its just like old times, she says:

    I never got married and now I can marry the man I have always loved. It’s like we were never apart. I am so happy and so in love.

    Tear-jerking! Like like they were never apart, you see. Steve was the one she really loved all those years that she was getting nailed and not called back by a veritable foreign legion of French cock.

    Certainly he feels the same way, unconcerned that he gets the consolation prize of the leathery 42-year-old pussy that thoroughly rejected and neglected him since back before “Wonderwall,” was a hit.

    How many special people change, indeed, you shifty Spanish whore.

    “We’ve gotten past all that now, and in fact our marriage is probably stronger than it was. But one thing still bothers me: She admitted to performing certain intimate acts with him that she had previously refused to even talk about doing with me.

    She has never been able to explain why. She says, “Well I know I shouldn’t have done it, but I guess I got caught up in the moment.” And, “I wish I hadn’t! I shouldn’t have! I didn’t particularly enjoy it! I just acted without thinking!”

    HAHAHAHA. “Certain intimate acts,” oh jesus that’s funny. So his goddamn wife wouldn’t even discuss giving him a blow job or letting him finger her ass, yet her paramour was jovially spelunking in her every orifice, whether she “particularly enjoyed it” or not. Hilarious.

    Roissy, do I have a treat for you, G. Oh, spank baby Jesus on the behind, do I ever. What I’m about to tell you isn’t a candidate for a mere beta of the month award. It ain’t even beta of the year. This is the beta of all-time award right here baby. Behold: http://incel.myonlineplace.org/forum/

    I’m not sure if you can put forth an entire forum of “incel” (that term standing for involuntary celibacy, by the way – the joke tells itself!) betas, or if you would need to narrow it down to a few posters (or, perhaps, the moderator squad). I’ve got a mole planted there who is aware of more in-depth knowledge of the place and I’m sure we could work something out here for a contest submission. Seems like the FAQ is a good place to start.

    This is too good to pass up, Roissy. We need you to bring the heat down on these uber betas and their bbbbbbbbw grrrl power trainers. (Seriously, how can a female be “incel” unless she’s mentally ill, morbidly obese, or a ten bagger?) Basically, the fabled Kingdom of David Alexander has been located. The beta males are ten to a home, devoted to their female masters who dispense unimaginably horrible “game” and dating advice. You couldn’t make this place up.

    The universe cannot come to its successful completion until Roissy does a writeup on this place for all the world to see (and vote on).


  279. http://www.nytimes.com/2009/07/27/arts/design/27border.html

    Whichever “man” made the decision to take down this sign out of fear that it would rouse the ire of a terrorist should be the beta of the month.


  280. Clear betas in this multiple relationship thing. Look at the pics too, all these dudes after 1 ugly old broad.



  281. Herb^2 squared = Incel.


  282. I think I may be the mole Tendergrass was referring to. In a nutshell, the incel board he linked is like an omega factory. A couple of the moderators have hooked up with other (female) posters, which I suppose makes them herbs/betas. They then indoctrinate the rest of the desperate men, already at the low end of the beta spectrum, and push them off into omega status. When this happens, these men are blamed for being failures, when in reality it’s the fault of them following bad, delusional advice they got on the forum. There is a gang of bullies that run that place (a couple being mods) who can be quite abusive psychologically, minimizing the issues men face when it comes to the dating game. There is also a contingent of female posters who claim to be involuntarily celibate, but personally I just think are there to get there egos stroked by all the desperate men, who think maybe one day they can meet IRL and hook up. They are extremely leftist/socialist politically, and it shows in the “community” they’ve developed. The site is a great argument against matriarchy.

    Bottom line is that the place is messing with the heads of a lot of men. They need to be exposed, but it’s very difficult to break in and try and steer anybody right, because they are paranoid about losing their grip on the status quo. Mods will go so far to check your PM messages to see if you are privately giving out information they “disapprove” of. If he can’t make them a “beta of the month”, a post by Roissy exposing this matriarchal ghetto of bad dating advice might help open some eyes, and save a few betas.

    Early on in Andrea Dworkin’s New Statesman article (http://www.newstatesman.com/200006050009) on how she was raped in a Paris hotel (at the age of 52), she made this statement: “In my own life, I don’t have intercourse. That is my choice.”

    A few paragraphs later, she mentions calling her “mate, John” who shared a home with her in Brooklyn.

    Months later, she recalled how “John looked for any other explanation than rape” and “abandoned me emotionally. Now a year has passed and sometimes he’s with me in his heart and sometimes not.”

    This, by the way, is the woman who famously said that penetration itself is a form of “occupation” and “violation of female boundaries,” and that sex is “the pure, sterile, formal expression of men’s contempt for women.”

    And yet, some dude served–not as her boyfriend, fiancee, husband, etc.–but as her “mate,” (or worse, life-partner), first despite her negative claims about sex, and even worse, he was with her even though she would not ever have sex with him (I imagine blowjobs were completely out of the question).

    So you imagine this SWPL tool, for years, hanging out with a woman who viewed him as a potential rapist and viewed his sexual desires as an expression of contempt. Did she let him whack off? Probably not.

  306. Cleese Not Amused by Divorce Settlement

    British comedian John Cleese has taken a serious hit in his recent divorce, though his ex-wife, American psychotherapist Faye Eichelberger, might be laughing all the way to the bank. Cleese, who has no children from this 16-year marriage, has been ordered to pay roughly $13 million in cash and assets, including a NY apartment, a $3 million home in west London, and half a beach house in Santa Barbara. Ms. Eichelberger will also receive about $986,000 a year for seven years, the Telegraph UK reports.

    ‘Monty Python’ star Cleese, 70, is less than pleased about the arrangement, which will ultimately leave his ex-wife the richer of the two. “What I find so unfair is that if we both died today, her children would get much more than mine,” he said. “At least I will know in future if I go out with a lady they will not be after me for my money.”

    Eichelberger sought considerably more. In her divorce testimony, she claimed Cleese was a “world-renowned celebrity” and she was accustomed to “being entertained by royalty and dignitaries in castles”. She claimed half the Monty Python star’s earnings since their 1992 wedding, half his nine properties, and $1.45 million yearly for living expenses.

    Director Michael Winner, a close friend of Cleese, said, “It is an extraordinary world which means John is left with much less than his former wife even though he is the star who did all the work. The settlement defies human belief. John is extremely cross about it and I don’t blame him. The settlement comes after two years of harrowing legal argument.”

    Funnyman Cleese couldn’t resist a joke, adding, “I got off lightly. Think what I’d have had to pay Alyce if she had contributed anything to the relationship.”

    The actor said, “In my 70th year, I will still be spending two months a year doing work that is of no interest to me and which is probably slightly spiritually depleting in order to feed the beast.”‘

    [editor: fucking unbelievable. the marriage/divorce racket needs to be torn up by the roots, doused with gasoline, and burned to ashes. i mean, why the fuck does it matter *what* lifestyle this filthy cunt was accustomed to? the marriage is over, she hits the bricks and makes her own way. somebody stick a fork in the west, it’s done.]

  325. File this under ‘Closet Cases Should Never Discuss Women’:


    All this vexation is a very, very small price to pay for equality. For men, it is a very, very small price to pay for the opportunity to share a life with a peer, a full partner, rather than with a woman limited by convention and straitened opportunity to a more circumscribed and subordinate role in life. Sexual equality has created the possibility of greater exactness and complementarity in matching women to men….

    Since I was a teenager, I’ve found old-school machismo pathetic and somehow irrelevant to the problem of becoming a man. Without even knowing what or why it was, I was heavily influenced by gay culture, which provided me, and many other straight young men, a wide variety of templates for manhood that are at once unmistakably masculine, playfully ironic, aesthetic, emotionally open, and happily sexual. You can be manly and care about shoes!!! I’ll confess that I used to periodically regret my heterosexuality because there seemed to be greater scope for constructing a distinctive and satisfying male identity within gay culture. I think that’s telling.


  326. I would like to nominate Larry Auster as beta of the month for writing this nauseating paragraph:

    Speaking of human female characteristics, could there be any idea more clueless about the nature of reality than the Darwinian belief that the female human form, the most beautiful thing in the universe, is the result of some kind of accretion of accidents chosen by survival advantage, rather than the expression of an essence, namely the female essence? Again we see how the author of Genesis is more scientific than the supposed scientists who despise him. In the second chapter of Genesis, God creates man, Adam, out of the dust of the ground, and then, seeing that the man is incomplete and lonely by himself, God proceeds to create woman out of a part of the man’s body. While feminists of course complain that this makes women subordinate to men, the feminists–of course–miss the whole point, which is that the woman is made out of higher stuff than the man. The man is made out of mere dust; the woman is made out of the human body. Further, as the last thing God creates in the process of creating the world, the human female is the crown of creation. In this way and in other ways, Genesis expresses the truth of human existence, which Darwinism with its lame fairy tales does not express at all.

    I would like to nominate Larry Auster as beta of the month for writing this nauseating paragraph:

    …..we see how the author of Genesis is more scientific than the supposed scientists who despise him……….

    Auster is a highly ethnocentric Jew who prefers the fairy tales of HIS people over the theories of “the goyum”.

    Many intellectual Jews on the left are the same way in their worship of secular Jews like Marx, Freud or Chomsky over the Evil English goy Darwin.

    …Darwinism with its lame fairy tales does not express at all.

    This guy Auster sounds like a very stupid man. It’s amazing how many people of at least average IQ don’t even have minimal understanding of biological science and evolutionary theory.

    LANCASTER, Pa. – A Pennsylvania man said he robbed a bank in 2007 to go to jail and get away from his overbearing wife.

    At a sentencing hearing Monday, 39-year-old Anthony Miller said he robbed a bank in Ephrata because he wanted to leave his then-wife but she had threatened to commit suicide if he did.

    Defense attorney Robert Beyer said Miller approached tellers with a BB gun, asked for money and told them to call the police.

    He said Miller even asked for updates on their efforts to reach authorities.

    Miller pleaded guilty in June. Lancaster County Judge Louis Farina sentenced him to three to six years in prison on Monday.

    Beyer said the couple divorced within the last year.

    What a beta!

    “Swedish father Ragnar Bengtsson, 26, has entered into an experiment that he hopes will help him breastfeed his future children.

    On Tuesday, the Stockholm family man began stimulating his breasts with a pump in a bid to produce milk.

    “Anything that doesn’t do any harm is worth trying out. And if it works it could prove very important for men’s ability to get much closer to their children at an early stage,” Bengtsson told The Local. “

    He leans in, caresses her(in a way that begs for approval), and subordinates himself to her. Notice how when he starts rubbing on her she pushes his hand away with her elbow (0:16). and then wait for it……..BAM.

  343. This douche bag gets falsely accused of, arrested, and his name smeared, and then when the bitch admits the whole thing was made up, he says he has “no hard feelings toward here.” Guys like this should be shot as an example to other guys, and this bitch should spend at least five years in prison. He’s a huge fucking beta.


    “Basically I have no hard feelings toward her. I don’t know why she did it. I don’t know her so I don’t want to say anything bad about her,” Felipe said. “I grew up in an all-women household. I have sisters. All my women are aunts. I respect women. I would never disrespect women, so being accused of that hurt me and my brother, you know? I’m just happy that everything is finally out in the open and we get to go home.”

  346. […] Beta Of The Year Contest Submissions […]


  347. I submitted this to Roissy recently, but didn’t notice this special forum for doing so. The world needs to see this.


    Some dude was flirting with a chick FOR AN HOUR, when she finally let him know that she was a hooker and tried to charge him for sex.

    So what does he do? He PAYS her not to fuck him, but to blather on and on about how she became a whore.

    It’s de-balling to let a girl yap at you when she led you on sexually. It’s beyond the pale for you to PAY her to do that to you.

    Then he says that any feminists in the area can get some drinks with him and show him around. Like he just did this to get pussy off of Feministing

    On top of that, if you read the comments, the feminists who he was trying to impress hate him for it. One of them accuses him of being a “Nice Guy (TM).” Another chick ranks on him for paying the money. Supposedly, this is because it made him a client who paid to hear what he wanted to hear. But I think that even a feminist doesn’t respect a man with no stones.


  348. I’d like to nominate this fellow as Beta of the Millenium:

    Swedish dad tries to breast-feed

    When mom is away, most dads offer a crying newborn a bottle of milk, a pacifier, a pinkie finger. But a Swedish dad is embarking on an experiment that he hopes will allow him to soothe a baby with his own milk-filled breasts.

    But I think that even a feminist doesn’t respect a man with no stones.

  351. I didn’t read that story Walter, but that activity is not necessarily beta.

    Nor is wife swapping or swinging.


  352. Some men are so rich, famous, and good looking they can pull 8’s and 9’s even with beta game. Kevin Jonas is one of these men.

    So how does a man that gets paid to spray hot foam on ladies choose to spend his twenties? By settling down with a flurge, of course. And to keep the whole thing kid friendly, he won’t even get his dick wet until the honeymoon.


    The wedding will be a blast. The bridesmaids are his sisters, the best men are his brothers, and his bachelor party will be “good, clean, fun” with “friends and family”.

    It makes me sad to a man destined for pussy mongering piss it all away in loyalty to his beta beliefs. But I guess that loyalty is what made him famous.

    This is disgusting . . . this dude thinks the solution to the problems between men and women in teaching men feminism. Also, he says Gloria Steinem is one of his heroes.

    When asked about the greatest challenges facing feminism, here’s what he says:

    “It is sort of weird and a bit discomforting for me to offer advice to feminists as a group, being a man, but what I would say is that the group that feels that it has nothing to gain from feminism, and that feminism has nothing to do with them, is men. And I think that that’s the reason that women are faced with such draconian choices between opting out and balancing work and family, because men haven’t stepped up and aren’t doing as much housework and childcare as women need them to do in order for women to be able to balance work and family. And my argument here is that the group that has to be embraced by feminism is men – although, I hasten to add that it’s not your job. That should be our job. We should be doing that.”

  379. This is an extreme definition of beta obviously, not a herb type beta but I really don’t know how to describe this.

    Loser hires a punk to rape his own wife in his own home while he watches and his two children sleep in the next room.

    Man charged in Craigslist rape-for-hire case (video)

    Authorities say they are confident that a North Carolina man charged with rape for an encounter arranged on Craigslist knew that it was not consensual.

    Rodney Liverman, 39, is charged with first degree rape and sexual offenses.

    The husband has not been identified in order to protect the wife’s identity.

    Questions have been raised about whether the alleged rapist knew he was committing a crime, or thought he was taking part in consensual role-play.

    Captain Adams said police are “confident” Liverman knew it was not consensual.

    “The information leading up to this encounter has made it clear to us that this individual should have known this was not going to be a role-play,” said Adams. “I don’t know of anything that would indicate to us that she had any knowledge of anything that would transpire or did transpire.”

    The attack occurred May 31 at a home in Kannapolis, about 25 miles northeast of Charlotte.

    Police said a man entered a home with a knife and went into the woman’s bedroom, demanded money and ordered her to take off her clothes, before raping her.

    The victim’s husband was also in the room and backed away, watching the attack, investigators said.

    At one point, the woman managed to grab the knife the suspect had put on the bed and threw it toward her husband, who did nothing to stop the attack, police said.

    After the rape, the suspect told the woman to take a shower and told her not to call 911.

    More info.

    In the affidavit, the victim told investigators that “her husband’s sexual fantasy is having sex with her and another male.”

    The bitch fakes kidnapping with some illegal immigrant. She runs off with him(theillegal) and plans a 50,000 ransom for her husband to pay since she’s “abducted.”
    The police found out it was all a fraud.



  392. Not extremely new but very insightful . An article ( http://www.observer.com/2008/arts-culture/mad-about-man?page=all ) about how SWPL women love the Don Draper character. In the middle, their über Beta husbands:

    Selected quotes:

    “There was a word for guys like me back then,” said Mr. Ryan of the 1960s. “Losers.”

    But, he said, that was a different era. “My wife is far more ambitious than I am. I never aspired past a middle-class job; she wanted to get out there and succeed.”

    Ms. Isdale proclaimed herself content with the arrangement. “I am married to the most amazing man; he’s sublimated his career aspirations for me,” she said.
    Another Beta´s wife rationalization at work:

    “Ms. Wu bristled at the idea that her husband’s masculinity might somehow be in question.”

    “It takes a certain kind of guy to be confident enough to stay home and still have a sense of identity,” she said.

    Final punch:

    “But even as men proclaim themselves happy homemakers, some of their wives, or “partners” to use the popular parlance of the day, express ambivalence. “You appreciate a stay-at-home dad—as feminists, this is what we wanted!—but marriage now is all about equal partnership,” said the anonymous Brooklyn mom. “It works as a social system, but it’s not terribly erotic.””


  393. This blog is so informative. Good work!


  394. <a href=http://www.observer.com/2008/arts-culture/mad-about-man

    Meanwhile, out in Fairfield, Conn.—a location for the 1975 film of the Ira Levin novel Stepford Wives—you’ll find Lincoln Hayes, 36, who gave up his career in the nonprofit world just a year ago to take care of two boys, ages 3 and 6. His wife, Bibie Wu, also 36, has continued her well-paying job as a business director at a consumer packaged goods company.

    “Sometimes, I think, ‘God, I’m a stay-at-home dad. How did this happen to me?’” Mr. Hayes said. “And my wife is like, ‘How did I become the working parent?’”

    Mr. Hayes’ day, much like Mr. Ryan’s, consists of dropping kids off at school, connecting with stay-at-home parent friends, cooking meals and maintaining the house. “If my wife gets home in time, then we eat dinner together,” he said. “If not, then I tell the kids that mommy will be home right after dinner or by bedtime, depending on the night.”

    Ms. Wu bristled at the idea that her husband’s masculinity might somehow be in question.

    “It takes a certain kind of guy to be confident enough to stay home and still have a sense of identity,” she said. “Linc can easily choose to be in the corporate world and make a lot of money, but he chose to stay at home.”

    Here he is in his herbtastic glory.

    Not only is his live-in girlfriend of four years jetting off to the Caribbean to fuck some other guy, but she absolutely (and rightly) berates the living shit out of him after he weakly confronts her and immediately caves, begging for her back after she happily admits to overtly using him and rutting behind his back.

    I’ve had beer and played pool with my ex-wife new BF, and he was also invited to sit with her at the head table of one of my sons wedding.

    We have xmas dinner when I can manage to get to the uk, and our 3 sons accepted the new BF without any real trouble, and we all keep in touch and help each other.

    The world is a harsh place, and as long as we are all ok with the outcome we should remain friendly, acrimonious divorce does cause all kinds of problems and should be avoided if possible.

    BTW, I live in China now, not the UK and when I explain about the divorce and BF and Xmas dinners etc etc to Chinese people they are absolutely astounded, divorce here means you never ever see or talk with the ex, or any of their friends or family.

    It’s amazing how totally unwilling the writer is to just state the case simply. Everything is so fuzzy, confusing, and so full of grey areas to her. It’s like some natural disaster caused all the problems, not a bitch-whore woman and the feminazis behind the law.


  407. Hey man. Here’s a promotion of betatude (i wish I had more info)

    It’s a documentary on how women are treated in music videos. Narrated by a turbo beta. I will totally like to see your take on this

    This beta is so horrendous, watching all 2:12 of this Youtube clip is a test of your endurance.

    The case for this guy:
    1. He got engaged.
    2. He got engaged to a less-than-hot woman
    3. His less-than-hot fiance bails on him
    4. He cries
    5. He cries on camera, soon to be on national television and the interwebs.

    I hope, for this pitiful beta’s sake, that the wedding never happened, or that they got a quickie divorce. ‘Tis better to
    live single, with at least some tiny portion of your manhood still intact, than to be chained to some cunt like that. If she did walk out on him, at least it’s just a single blow, and he’s got plenty of time to figure things out for himself. Kind of like the 3-knockdown rule in boxing: it lets a weak fighter walk out of the ring, rather than get carried out, comatose, on a stretcher.

    This article is a great example of shit tests, women becoming Hulk-style angry at a Beta who cannot pass them, and women’s unlimited ability to never take responsibility…
    Quotes: “I cringed as he said he knew he was often “passive aggressive or whatever” and he would try to change. It was as if he was just quoting the accusations I’d thrown at him so often and didn’t really understand”
    Apparently shit tests are just PMS…
    “Knowing that PMS was behind the anger and helplessness I felt every month didn’t stop the heated rows. I still got upset with David for what always seemed at the time of the argument to be perfectly legitimate reasons. I was never aware in the middle of a row that it was PMS…”
    “Once David realized it wasn’t me, but my PMS, he started taking my attacks less personally”
    Oh and “he does do all of the cooking and much of the housework.”


  410. This is one of the best examples I’ve ever seen of the contrast between an alpha and beta male.

    It’s Andrew Dice Clay and Tom Green. Andrew Dice Clay AMOGs Tom Green throughout the entire thing and Tom Green looks more and more pathetic as it progresses. The man shows zero confidence.

    It’s in 10 parts, but it’s highly entertaining. It’s a good look at the dynamics of an alpha and a beta male in action alongside one another.

    This is Part 2, but it’s all good stuff. Here, Dice AMOG’s him in front of a hot blonde.

  415. I second Tiger Woods; anyone read his statement in regards to his wife attacking him with the tools of his trade?

    “This situation is my fault, and it’s obviously embarrassing to my family and me. I’m human and I’m not perfect. I will certainly make sure this doesn’t happen again”



  416. What bothers me about Tiger and this whole mess is that I think he had the greatest opportunity to make himself totally desirable to women AND get his woman in line…If Tiger had just smiled and instead said: “Women hit on me and girls sometimes loose their minds over it, maybe the police will help her out but I have more fun things to focus on”
    If he let the police give her a little swat on the wrist while living like he could not care less about her welfare, I think his wife would be chastised and pleading with him to take her back, the media would be calling Tiger a cad, and the women of America would be rubbing one out just thinking about him each night. This is how I imagine it playing out in the theatre of my mind anyway…
    Roissy, can you clarify how exactly a man should behave when a girl goes psycho? Should he treat it as a shit test and just pull back and ignore the girl, should he ever press charges, and would it be advantageous to draw attention to the fact that you drive women insane?

    Facebook Group: If 1,170,000 People Join, My Girlfriend Will Marry Me!

    I’m sure many of you facebookers have already stumbled upon this and (like myself) wondered if it was real.

    It’s the classic tale of the hopeless romantic, Brett Grant, who appears to be a worthy candidate for our ridicule. He proposes to his girlfriend of 5 years, she rejects him, and now he hasn’t the slightest idea of why she doesn’t love him!

    HMMMM….let’s see if we can figure out why…

    [q] I have been with my girlfriend (Caroline) for over five years now. Six months ago, I made a proposal to her, but she rejected me. [/q]

    The gate is set…

    [q] It was not about the amount of money that I have in bank or my ordinary look. I asked her why but she refused to tell me. [/q]

    AND HE’S OFF!!

    [q] Two weeks ago, I proposed to her again. [/q]

    You can’t be this fucking stupid, Brett.

    [q] This time I brought her back to the place where we first met and I thought that I would succeed this time, but…. yet again I failed. [/q]

    OMG i c tht comng frm a MiLe AwAy!!! LOL 🙂

    [q] Then she told me that if I can get 1,170,000 people to back me up with my proposal, she will put on the ring. [/q]

    Brett, what’s happening here is, you’re doing something called “flailing” and it’s a very ugly site for the rest of us.

    [q] I was reluctant at first because the whole world might laugh at me. You can call me a fool or anything but I don’t care anymore because for her I’ll do anything. This group was born out of my LOVE to her. [/q]

    What is funny is to read the comments from women on the wall. Things like “I admire your persistence!” and “You can do it!” seem to dominate the themes.

    Womens’ Senseless Dating Lesson to Men #1: When you’ve dug yourself into a whole, keep digging deeper.

    [q] We met on January, 17th, it was simply our anniversary date and to her (and me) this is a BIG Day! [/q]

    Tell me, do those kisses taste a little “salty” lately?

    Brett, sir, the shit you see in Hollywood movies doesn’t happen in reality. You should be fucking ashamed of yourself for allowing a girl to tool you into thinking that if you somehow get a defined number of people to join a facebook group supporting your cause then you will be awarded with a life happily ever after. She has ZERO respect for you now and probably throughout the majority of your relationship. You are her backup plan, and you are somehow managing to fuck that up too. If you have any, your balls should be located a few inches south of your belly button and between your legs. Find them, or have fun raising someone else’s kids.


  420. http://www.facebook.com/#/group.php?gid=191904666638&ref=nf

    After being rejected by his girlfriend twice, he’s made a facebook group to get 1,170,000 people to join. Then she’ll marry him.

    WTF. If it takes that kind of request from a girl to marry you, then shit. That’s going to be the most terrible marriage EVER.

    I’m tempted to make a competitive group to get people to LEAVE that facebook group. It’ll do the guy a favor.


  421. Damn Mandy, i just came here to post that.


  422. Except now he actually has the right number of people.


    If she accepts it’s gonna be the marriage from hell.


  423. Wait, no, I read the numbers wrong, he needs a little under a hundred thousand to join.

    Either way, he’s going to get that number soon. People think it’s so sweet and keep joining. It’s stupid.


  424. didn’t know where to publish this but wow:


    this cat writes how misogynistic america is, does not bother to back up his claims at all and uses the virginia tech shooter and porn as evidence that that america is horrifically violent towards women


  425. @wes:

    While the writer is a bit exaggerated, I feel like he does have a point. But he fails to miss that these are men who feel inadequate, and they attack women, because women are easier to attack, unfortunately. They’re not going to attack other men, because then they’d get their asses kicked, and be reminded of how pathetic they are as human beings.

    Just my two cents.

    Husband sticks by her.


  429. The cast of the NFL Today:


  430. The fiancé of the fourth Tiger Woods mistress/whore Jamie Jungers.

    “And while Woods was betraying Elin – who was living in their main home in ­Florida 2,000 miles away – Jamie herself was ­cheating on her fiancé, ­businessman Derek Schmidt.

    Derek, 28, a golf fan who used to idolise Woods, said: “I was a massive Tiger fan. I had Tiger Woods memorabilia all over my house and even collected Tiger Woods videos.

    “On the night Jamie met him for the first time, I had just bought the new Tiger Woods computer game. The following morning she told me she had met Tiger Woods and he gave her his number – and like an idiot I got really excited about it.

    “I even asked her if she could call him so I could get my computer game signed.

    “I knew Tiger had come on to her and asked for her number. I knew that he called her whenever he came to Las Vegas.

    But she insisted that nothing was going on.”

    Derek said Jamie first met Woods, now 33, when she was doing promotional work at the Bellagio in July 2005.

    Derek said: “She told me she got called over by a ­bouncer who said someone ­important wanted to meet her in the VIP room.

    “She said she did not know it was Tiger Woods until she was brought to his table. He ­immediately started ­hitting on her and telling her she was ­beautiful. She told me he asked for her number and gave her his.

    “I was surprised because I knew he was married and I didn’t think he was that type of guy. But I trusted Jamie. We had been engaged for over a year then – having first started dating in 2002 – and were head over heels in love.

    “She showed me Tiger’s number and we both called it, putting her mobile on speaker phone. I still ­remember his answer machine message. It said, ‘You’ve called the right person at the wrong time. Please leave a ­message’.

    “I thought that was pretty cool. I put his number in my phone and took it to work to show my ­colleagues. I played them all the same answer phone message. I had no idea my fiancée had slept with him the previous night. Now I feel like a total idiot.”

    Derek said that over the following months Jamie began making regular trips to ­California to meet Woods.

    He said: “It was hard to keep track of what she was doing as she always had the excuse that she needed to travel for her work.

    “She was staying out late at night and travelling a great deal.”

    He said it was only after he split with her in 2007 because of her partying and vanity that he found out about Woods.

    “Now, I know the truth, it makes me ­really mad.”

    Derek, who is now engaged to another woman, said: “I think Tiger is a great ­competitor on the golf course, but away from it he is a horrible person.

    “He should have more respect for himself and his family. I am certainly not a fan of his any more.”

    derek schmidt definitely got played, but really though, what was his alpha move? i don’t think the party line of amused mastery is gonna cut it against a billionaire athlete that she knows you already jock. the only thing i can think of is deleting the number from her phone yourself with a strongarm move, then initiating two hours of domineering jackhammer sex, perhaps in an unconventional room to drill it into her memory. enough to knock her out of commission for a day or so, numbing those gina tingles. this may also have to become standard fare for a while.

    so how do you AMOG tiger woods? start playing fight night instead??

    “He should have more respect for himself and his family. I am certainly not a fan of his any more.”

    Oh no! Tiger is surely trembling at your beta-rage!

His sister and others who know him say they don’t believe he ever had a significant romantic relationship. “That was his life, that company,” Mr. Thomas says. “It engulfed him.”



  436. Derek laid the groundwork by worshipping Tiger Woods, worshipping another guy like just reinforces/highlights how superior Tiger Woods was to Derek in the mind of his fiance. Would the course of events have been altered? Who knows, it’s pretty tough to outshine a major celebrity if the woman is willing. I do know that he would’ve been better served spending his time doing something to enhance his own worth rather than merely confirming Tiger’s.

    this fucking mangina!

    enlightened male “journalist” ian thomsen has asked the NBA commissioner the hard-hitting question that everyone has been thinking: when will a woman play in the NBA?


    after achieving overnight fame for his front-line reporting, he selects some mailbag questions to field.


    “The two reasons I believe we’ll see a woman on an NBA team are: (1) because the NBA wants it to happen, for selfish reasons, of course; and (2) because some amazing athlete will grow up being told by Stern that she can do it, and she’ll do everything she can to fulfill that dream.

    This next statement is really going to set off a lot of you, but I believe Stern’s prediction of a woman player in the NBA will go down as one of the most important things he has ever done. As leader of the world’s second-biggest team sport, he has told half of the world’s population that he believes in them and there is nothing they cannot accomplish. There was no harm in him saying it, there was only upside, and 10 or 20 years down the line we will realize its impact.”

    part of me wants to write this off as shock journalism, which it is. but this herbivorus major just goes too far.

    “There are hundreds of millions of women around the world who do not have the same opportunities as men. These women represent a huge talent pool that is prohibited from education or certain types of jobs or the fulfillment of whatever their dreams may be simply because they are women. To them, the symbol of a woman player in the NBA could serve as their Jackie Robinson.”

    local sports radio posed a similar question during a segment last year, asking at which uniform age could the best boys in the world beat the best girls in the world of any age? college freshmen? high school sophomores? the answer they settled on: 8th grade. the WNBA all-stars could be beaten by the best of the 13 year olds.

    oh all right, this buffoon will earn the favor of many “progressive liberals” and might even get laid from this piece of shit. i’m nominating him as a beta because he deserves to be mocked and not mimicked. who knows, maybe someday an 8 foot tall woman with a dick will free him from the oppression of the patriarchy by fucking him in the ass? you never know!

    Hale, 39, was having an ‘affair’ with a married man when she gave Peter a sex drug called ‘Horny Goat Weed’ and lured him to woodland in Bristol. There she cut his throat and stabbed him in the chest before running off.

    “Progress on the desegregation of the workforce and attitudes to gender roles have not advanced since the mid-1990s. This is despite the fact that women are now outpacing men academically — earning 58 percent of bachelor’s degrees and 60 percent of master’s.

    Since superior academic performance doesn’t seem to be narrowing the gap, we need a renewed drive by government and companies to root out discrimination and create a more family-friendly work place. Although the United States has excellent anti-discrimination laws, enforcement is woefully underfunded.”

    This writer deserves to be nominated.



    Bat shit crazy wife tries to kill husband so she could start fucking a guy from the internet:

    The court had been told how Hale persuaded her husband to take the sex drug before heading off for a romp in the woods on December 27 last year.

    He allowed his wife to blindfold him, believing they were acting out a fantasy – but instead she slashed his throat, inflicting a five-inch long wound, before repeatedly stabbing him in the neck and chest.

    She was disturbed by a passer-by and fled the scene, claiming she did not know who Mr Hale was or what had happened to him.

    After the attack Hale drove to a nearby train station to pick up Philip Sudol – a married postal worker who had travelled from his home in Leeds.

    They were meeting for the first time after becoming friends on the internet.

    Mr Sudol had been expecting to have sex with Hale but was instead arrested at her home.

    Beta of the year husband still loves her and wants her back:

    After the hearing yesterday he said: “I hope she is out as soon as possible. I still love her very much.”

    Mr Hale wrote a series of letters to the court in which he asserted that the incident was not his wife’s fault and that he was willing to forgive her.

    He said life without her was “terrible” and he was still deeply in love with her.

    Husband blew her a kiss as she was led from the dock, sobbing and waving to friends in the public gallery.

  459. Beta tells Reddit users about how his wife basically shit all over him on Christmas morning:

    “My wife told me she had one gift for me this year: a very special gift. Keep in mind she told me about this in November; between that date and Christmas, we ate, lived and slept together. I would never have expected this.

    Her “only” gift wasn’t expensive furniture, watch or perfume: she had filed divorce paper. Not only that, she watched me open the big box where she put the little letter in front of our two children. We have been married for 12 years.

    She insisted I opened this gift at the end, after all gifts had been opened. At first I thought it was a joke. The form was accompanied with a court date, her asked conditions, as well as a letter from a lawyer she hired, saying she was asking for full custody of our children.

    She wouldn’t even tell me why she filed for divorce. As a matter of fact, I still do not know. I am now alone, our two children are asleep and she went to celebrate with her family. Yes, all alone on the night of christmas. I am at a loss for words!”

    The day after Christmas, his wife realizes she’s made a huge mistake, gets interned at some mental hospital. There, she tells the doctor strange things, and she’s diagnosed with mild borderline personality disorder and depression. Of course, the beta can’t figure out how this can be:

    “For all of those wondering how I could live with her for 12 years and not realize a thing, I would reply I was blind, naive and dumb. Overall these 12 years have been good and I have considered myself “happy.” I now realize it was all a lie. I fail to realize how exactly I could be so blind.”

    He’s not blind, his wife is a hypergamous liar who got bored with her marriage.

    So with the whole professional diagnosis thing, he’s in a good position to get full custody of his kids (something the wife threatened against him). Instead of acting on this, he decides he wants to stick it out with his evil wife, and cancels the divorce in order to make things work.

    at risk of sycophancy, look at this fucking beta:


    he expounds on his beta pedestalization of women in the comments section:

    “As things currently stand, child support is a zero-sum battle, with the field biased in favor of the mother and the stepfather. I’m coming at this from a stepfather’s perspective. I don’t have a lot of sympathy for the guy who fails to raise his children yet kvetches about the possibility that the guy raising them in his stead might receive a single dollar of compensation for the favor. In fact, hearing it makes me want to get liposuction with it…out of spite.

    My own parents divorced when I was six. My father lived nearby, remained an active dad in my life, and paid his child support dutifully. There truly are male victims, but my suspicion is that the overwhelming majority are men who either caused the divorce, didn’t work hard enough for the marriage, didn’t want full custody as bad as they let on, and didn’t make the simple sacrifices necessary to remain in the child’s life (such as relocating).

    Please understand that I’m not here to point fingers or make specific determinations on anybody’s personal situations. I’ve been around long enough to see and hear it all. But please don’t point fingers at divorced women or single mothers in general, either.”

    we can infer much about his upbringing from such an admission. one theme of his post was to refute that white nationalists can’t get laid; he has disproved that theory by wifing up a single mom. for his next trick, he will invoke the powerful N and J words.


  471. Hahahaha! Wait for the end:

    “Corcoran harks back to her husband Bill Higgins’s glory days. Bill’s career included a stint as an FBI agent—“He had more arrests than anybody ever,” his wife boasts—and a top post in the Naval Reserve during the first Persian Gulf war. His last job was running his family’s New Jersey real-estate company, which he sold in 1997. A teaching fellowship in the Bronx followed, but now he answers to “spouse,” the title on his business card.”

  472. Mthson,

    Your excerpt contains the one guy in that piece who isn’t isn’t a beta. He was a badass in his career, he sold his career, and now he’s reaping the rewards of retirement.


  473. sold his business, sorry


  474. this guy is nice and beta:


    marries model without prenup
    brings on her kid too
    he loses 2/3rds of his wealth
    she steals his shit, divoces him
    paying her $9k a day in alimony

    they call him an alpha male too!

    you’re not an alpha if your girl leaves you when you lose money.


  475. Here is my beta-male submission for January, 2010 (even tho the comment was made in December, 2009 … I just came across it.):

    Patrick H. Ouzts December 20, 2009 at 9:09 pm
    I need a woman who is an encourager. Being a man is hard, and I couldn’t do it without the support of a strong woman. “Behind every strong man is a stronger woman” is a true statement. http://artofmanliness.com/2009/12/20/what-can-manly-men-expect-of-women/

    There is a picture of him on his website: http://www.xymen.com/ … He claims that “XY teaches men how to be men. Through facilitating workshops, trainings, coaching, curriculum, and events, XY teaches the principles of masculinity, such as chivalry, competition, drive and determination.”

    Sounds like he training them to be beta-males!


  476. X to the Z,

    Yeah, the thing is he wasn’t old enough to retire, and he wanted to be working. His problem was that he became lazy and rudderless and let his wife become the breadwinner.

    Retiring while you still have your abilities doesn’t seem very ‘tribal chief’ to me. No amount of wealth or prestige is ‘enough.’


  477. Beta of the month (fictional division) was definitely the guy married to the psychopath on House last night.


  478. Greg Oden aka the ugliest man in the NBA apologized today for nude pictures that surfaced of himself online. It seems that an ex-girlfriend exposed the self-snapped photos that he sent her 1.5 years ago. Penis is involved. Extremely beta for an NBA star.

    I insisted she avoid contact with guys she had slept with (and I promised to do the same with my previous partners); I used her romantic past to make her feel awful when she wanted to spend time with friends at places where her past flings would be; I held the fact that she’d had casual sexual partners against her. At the time, I thought I was a good guy who simply held his girlfriend to the same standards he imposed on himself. I did the same thing in my previous relationship. Now it’s painfully obvious what a monster I was. I’ve pored over self-help books and tried to make sure I do not revert to being this horrible person, but I always do. Now I am in a fresh relationship with a girl—we’ve fallen quickly for each other—and I’m keeping quiet about my discomfort that she’s friends with guys she has slept with. But I know something will eventually slip through the cracks.

    Greg Oden aka the ugliest man in the NBA apologized today for nude pictures that surfaced of himself online. It seems that an ex-girlfriend exposed the self-snapped photos that he sent her 1.5 years ago. Penis is involved.

    Which is more beta – taking nude pictures of yourself and then having a bitter ex girlfriend post them on line or being a White boy who posts a link of a black basketball payer taking a picture of himself naked?

    If Oden is beta what are you, omega?


  481. Super herb/beta daddy submissively allows his daughter to White guilt him into selling their house and giving the $800,000 to charity.

    Add Nicholas Kristof and the editors at the NYTimes to the beta list.

    Life Too Good? Sell Your House.

    As The New York Times’s Nicholas Kristof wrote in a recent editorial, it all started with a stoplight epiphany Hannah experienced when she was 14. She was in her father’s car, sandwiched between a homeless man on one corner and a Mercedes on the other. If Mr. Mercedes had a little less, she reasoned, Mr. Homeless could have a whole lot more. “She was really seething about the disparities she saw on that street corner,” says Kevin Salwen. “She challenged us, our family, to make more of a difference in the world.”

    Eventually, Hannah figured out how they could have less so others could have more: sell the house. “We nearly fainted,” says Kevin, but in April, 2007, they put their mansion on the market, pledging half of the proceeds–a minimum of $800,000–to charity and searching for a downsized abode.


  482. A grand example of pedestalling what we can assume is an attention-loving skank:



  483. naked omega landlord caught stealing his tenant’s lingerie and leaving condoms behind:



  484. I nominate John Edwards’ former campaign aide, Andrew Young:

    Whenever Rielle called me, she tried to talk explicitly about her relationship with the senator. For obvious reasons, she couldn’t talk about these things with anyone else, so I figured I was serving as a sort of safety valve, letting her blow off steam. When the details about specific sexual acts, love bites, or the condition of her vagina got too graphic, I cut her off, but my attempts to set limits on Rielle were only partly effective.


  485. Kudos from one braniac to another. 🙂


  486. Slate’s “Dear Prudence” continues to deliver the goods:


    “My brother had sex with my wife before we were married.”

    DP’s response?

    “What you should do now is apologize to your wife for forcing her confession and work on accepting that this information is meaningless to your relationship. If you still feel a need to one-up your brother, do it by holding onto the truth that you and your wife came together in a loving, mutually respectful way and that you two have created a beautiful young family.”

    and in the next question, DP tells a woman who cheated on her fiancee to keep the beta (now husband) in the dark!

    “an indiscretion prior to a marriage does not reduce a happy, fecund union to a sham. There is no purpose in your telling your husband that years ago you and a co-worker once groped each other.”
