I’ve also pointed out before, more than once, that the Manosphere’s definition of “alpha” is really the definition of a narcissist/psychopath, both of whom have no guilt or remorse, no conscience, and are incapable of love.
Here, again, in the definition of an “alpha.”
“Alpha: The alpha is the tall, good-looking guy who is the center of both male and female attention. The classic star of the football team who is dating the prettiest cheerleader. The successful business executive with the beautiful, stylish, blonde, size zero wife. All the women are attracted to him, while all the men want to be him, or at least be his friend. At a social gathering like a party, he's usually the loud, charismatic guy telling self-flattering stories to a group of attractive women who are listening with interest. However, alphas are only interested in women to the extent that they exist for the alpha's gratification, physical and psychological, they are actually more concerned with their overall group status.”
This is probably more the definition of a narcissist.
What sort of emotional infant wants to be the center of “male and female attention”? Classic star of the football team dating the prettiest cheerleader? Successful business executive with the beautiful wife? All the men want to be like him and all women are attracted to him? Women only exist for his physical and emotional gratification? That’s treating them as things that only exist to worship these “alphas”.
These are the grandiose fantasies of losers. These men don’t exist except in the movies. James Bond, Matt Helm Derek Flint.
All narcissists/psychopaths/borderlines have a grandiose self and a devalued self. In the case of the psychopath/sociopath all they have is a grandiose self and everyone else is devalued. In the case of the narcissist they alternate between their grandiose and devalued selves. As for borderlines, they’re pretty much narcissists who are psychotic (the women who drown their kids in cars or bathtubs are borderlines).
Now here is the definition of a Gamma.
“Gamma: The introspective, the unusual, the unattractive, and all too often the bitter. Gammas are often intelligent, usually unsuccessful with women, and not uncommonly all but invisible to them, the gamma alternates between placing women on pedestals and hating the entire sex. This mostly depends upon whether an attractive woman happened to notice his existence or not that day. Too introspective for their own good, gammas are the men who obsess over individual women for extended periods of time and supply the ranks of stalkers, psycho-jealous ex-boyfriends, and the authors of excruciatingly romantic rhyming doggerel. In the unlikely event they are at the party, they are probably in the corner muttering darkly about the behavior of everyone else there... sometimes to themselves. Gammas tend to have a worship/hate relationship with women, the current direction of which is directly tied to their present situation. However, they are sexual rejects, not social rejects.”
Remember what I said about narcissists having grandiose and devalued selves? The “Gamma” if a close to perfect definition of one.
The Manosphere like to pretend their non-existent “Alphas” wouldn’t have a grandiose and devalued self. But if they actually existed, they would. Everyone has one. If we didn’t no one would be prone to being humiliated or mortified (the last word means “to make dead”).
The Manosphere likes to pretend “Alphas” are so grandiose they’re close to perfect.
But psychologically there is no difference between an “alpha” and a “gamma.” That’s why in reality they’re the same thing.
I’ve met some men who devoted their lives to seducing women. They weren’t “alphas.” They were cowards and liars who ruined their lives. I’ve never seen an exception to that.
Actually they are the real “Omegas.” They’re not even respected by their friends. And certainly not by the sluts who fuck them (I’ve never met a slut who had any respect for men or even herself). To them men are just working dicks (I’ve rogered more than one of them myself).
Sooner or later the Manosphere will have to give up all this Alpha/Beta/Gamma/Omega nonsense and replace them with definitions that actually work.
