I've often wondered why Gammas are so intent on trying to shut down discussion and silence others. And then it occurred to me that it is not because they are foolish, but because they are cowards.
If you silence a Gamma, he submits. Sure, he's seething and angry, and he'll hold a grudge forever, but the one thing he isn't going to do is fight. Physical confrontation is simply not an option for him.
And that is why the Gamma is always astonished when he gets punched in the mouth. Because he would never fight, he can't imagine that anyone else will do so. I know plenty of guys who have been in fights, and none of them are Gammas.
Of course, that's also why the Gamma shrieks like a little Swedish girl getting raped by refugees when anyone even suggests the possibility of force being utilized. The very thought of it is terrifying to him.
