In today's society where schools, media, and even society in general are slowly pushing away the idea of 'being a man' is wrong in some way, or 'boys will be boys' is suddenly sexist and wrong, are some males becoming more passive, weak, and adopting the same personality as a doormat?

It's a problem for women, as well. Boys and girls should go through their development of masculinity/femininity and also through their assertive, aggressive teenager phases on their way to becoming self-confident adults.

Yup those articles seem about right. If anyone is wondering where the beta male/cuck comes into play its this:

Mixed-Mating—yet other women join the "best of both worlds" club. Here, think polyamory, open relationships, or a hot boyfriend on the side. Evolutionary psychology indicates that women sometimes use this strategy to seek the most stable and supportive partnership from one man, and the best genes for children from another. When women can't find it all in one guy, some choose to mix-and-match. For a more detailed analysis, see Cashdan (1996).

Not that I've noticed. However, it's become much easier for those men to get dates and girlfriends and wives, so now instead of wandering around alone... they have beautiful women with them, and all the traditionally-masculine men are pissing and moaning about it.

There's an old song called "Is She Really Going Out With Him?" that you should listen to. Here are the lyrics, if you just want to go look them over:

https://www.stlyrics.com/lyrics/theressomethingaboutmary/isshereallygoingoutwithhim.htm

That song is forty years old. And it charted because it resonated with people - people like the singer, who is clearly beta af. He watches the women in his neighbourhood dating ugly, mean people and does absolutely nothing.

Meanwhile, here you are looking at someone with a wife and kids, then running off to the anime forum so you can say something ugly and mean about it. Why didn't you be alpha and say it to his face?


This is a guy who's been cucked so bad by his wife he probably ditched all his friends, his hobbies and interests to fill in the role of the beta husband.


And THAT is some shit you made up because of where someone's hand is in a photo.

Think about how this looks to a woman. Here is a man with a wife and kids who look happy. He seems to be a very good husband and father. He's not bad looking, and probably has a decent job. That is the kind of man a woman would want to date and eventually marry.

Now here you come. You point at his hand, and say all kinds of nasty horrible shit about how his controlling bitch of a wife has clearly turned him into some kind of fag.

What does that woman think of you?

I mean, forget about this alpha/beta bullshit for a moment. What kind of woman wants anything to do with someone who says the shit you just said?


Is feminism to blame?


No. It's the internet.

Once upon a time, a certain breed of man could go out to a swingin' singles bar and pick up a hottie by walking up to whatever loser was incompetently trying to ask her out... and just being all masculine and shit. You insult him a little and make him feel self-conscious and he goes "um, uh, er" and leaves. Then you say "how YOU doin'?" and buy her a drink.

Now, in the age of the internet, that breed of man is the loser.

The betas are staying home. They go on some dating site and send messages and get on Skype and after a week or three of getting their backbone to stand up, they ask the girl out.

So when you go out to the bar, they aren't there anymore. Instead, the bar is full of all the guys who can't get a girl on a dating site. This is mostly because they message people on dating sites with dick pics and filth. So most of these guys are now overly alpha, and being more alpha than the next guy is actually a liability. Being all masculine doesn't distinguish you from the other men, because they're all being masculine.

Similarly, the women you can take advantage of aren't usually there either. Instead, you have mischievous little imps who think it's funny when men fight over them. I heard a decent line in "He Never Died" the other day: "Vaginas are like coupon books for alcohol." Women can go out and get free drinks just by acting like they might want to fuck later, so a number of them do. A minority will follow through and put out for someone, but mostly they just take the free drinks and bugger off.

The game's changed. You have to play it differently. And one of the most important differences is that when a man has a woman, you don't shit on him for it. You're not actually insulting the man he is, because women don't see it that way. You're insulting the choice a woman made. So your complaints that this guy is so beta are sexist and offensive, and women are not going to be impressed.

You don't have to be beta. You just have to be, you know... not such a flaming cockhole. I mean, "how YOU doin'?" totally still works. Just leave out the part where you insult the other guy. Also, don't buy drinks for women anymore. Tell them to buy you drinks.

The amount of insecure and paranoid men on this forum is staggering. Every time I look at the most recent forum posts, there is always something like this. Always. Whether it's about gay people, feminism, or something as simple as a man not wanting to be chauvinistic. Get the hell over it. Accept that some people will be different from you and you don't have to fix everything. Not everyone as to act the same way and be the same asshole that every man has been. Sound good?

Here's the thing, women do want alpha males. Alpha males protect and provide for their family, they aren't raging psychopaths who will "fight anyone, any day." When it comes down to it, alpha males respect their partner, defend their honor, have a sense of humor, and are confident. Most of the dudes who claim other dudes are betas are typically projecting their insecurity. I'm 6'5" 220 pounds. Rarely do I ever get all worked up over something, I'll only trade blows if someone is stupid enough to hit me, and I provide a sense of comfort that nothing can ever get to my woman. I don't have to be a raging asshole for that to happen. There are beta males, and those types are slimy, insecure, jealous douchebags. Seems like you're on that team, OP.

Real alphas don't have to claim their alpha we just are


I can agree with that sentiment to a degree. It reminds me of a quote by CS Lewis on equality.

No man who says "I'm as good as you !!" believes it. He would not say it if he did. The St. Bernard never says it to the toy dog, nor the scholar to the dunce, nor the employable to the bum, nor the pretty woman to the plain. The claim to equality, outside the strictly political field, is made only by those who feel themselves to be in some way inferior. What it expresses is precisely the itching, smarting, writhing awareness of an inferiority which the patient refuses to accept -- And therefore resents.


On the other hand, there are a lot of pansy-flower manchildren running around these days, so in touch with their inner feelings that they might lose a job over a breakdown, even when they have someone to support. So, I can see getting irritated by all the emasculation from time to time. Like "grow a pair" or something. Then, I do Brazilian JiuJitsu, so I am confident there are still real men in the world. Many of them are from Eastern Europe
