Don't be that guy



Not even in jest. As Delta Man has explained, Gammas always attempt to hide the truth behind their "joking". In the Gamma mind, by "pretending" to be submissive by acting submissive, this "really proves" that they're not submissive, but are in fact dominant.

In fact, any time you hear the phrase "that just proves" or "that only proves" from a man, you can be relatively sure you are dealing with a Gamma.

Women test men by challenging their overtures and provocations, whether they are genuinely offended or not. The Delta response is a sincere apology. The Gamma response is a "please don't hurt me" pantomime.

The Alpha response is a sardonic "What?"

"Just kidding."

In my gamma coward days, "just kidding" was my go to. I'd say something sarcastic/insulting/retalitory. When it would anger a woman or higher ranking man, I would say "just kidding." It was a plea to them not to retaliate or respond.

Is that scalzi?

It's hard to tell when he's not wearing a dress...

Caedryn Stonelaw said...

It's him. You can tell because he looks like a 6'2" Marine badass.

Funny. My first focus was the guy with his legs crossed.

Sounds exactly like the way progs put down men who don't like gay male behavior, when they claim a straight man isn't "comfortable" in his own sexuality unless he's willing to be seen as gay.

And again Scalzi makes me feel better about myself. Even homeless dudes don't do that.

Bard said...

Scalzi before Zod!

Robert What? said...

I'm not exactly sure what is going on here. Is this a guy proposing?

Hazim said...

My imagination is running wild guessing what he said or did that evoked her "you're incorrigible" look and his grovel.
I like to think that he made a pass at her 13 year old daughter and her rage quickly settled to mild scolding when she realized that he is just a pesky spaz and not a physical danger to anyone.

liberranter said...

Dems two be some FUUUUUUUUUGLY specimems of women dressing that guy down.

Yeah, that's definitely signaling negative value, right there...

Hazim said...

Those chicks have "NPR" written all over them

VoodooJock said...

He apologizing or supplicating to some pre-colombian deity?

ray said...

Soft porcine face, check. Never been homeless, never been in a fight, never been impoverished, never been in the military, never been in jail. However, knows all the groveling postures required of the Modern American Male.

Expensive glasses, check. Hip whiskers attempting to establish non-existent masculinity. Check.

They are the rule, not the exception. Hirelings of the skankarchy.

Cataline Sergius said...

This is clearly Scalzi in full on suck-up mode.

Who is he sucking up to so assiduously?

Dexter said...

I like the contemptuous "I am about to pour this drink on you, putz" expression on her face.

Ron said...

Well, by that logic women who pose in photos as submissive are really just joking about how strong and powerful they are.

My God, Scalzi is a genius!

Sean said...

Looks like a great party for picking up chicks. It's like deadlifting, but not as sexy.

That's what I first noticed too - then I scrolled down, and saw the Sta-puft marshmallow author, MR CAPS LOCK.
On his knees, quite likely a very common position for him. I guessing that photo is of him begging for his new contract.

And again Scalzi makes me feel better about myself.

Not me, it disgusts me that any man is willing to sink that low. He's a walking warning sign of what a man can come to if he is not serious. Even death would be preferable to his existence. That he is willing to accept such humiliation and contempt is a horror.

Ron said...

@Micahel Maeir

It's no different than looking at those sick people who self mutilate. There is nothing good about any of it.

dc.sunsets said...

What does it indicate if the response is incomprehension? I really don't grasp lots of prototypical women's behavior beyond finding it stupid or pointless. MPA not idiots, they're herd-animal puppets on strings.

dc.sunsets said...

Then again, I'm used to being >8" taller than the average woman so looking down on them from above is as natural as breathing. When a female manager was being a PITA my norm was simply to stand a few inches closer than normal to force her neck in a less comfortable position to look me in the eye. This worked for PITA male managers as long as they were short, too.

maniacprovost said...

I was wondering what so many unattractive people were doing in one place, dressed like that. A sci fi thing, huh.

She looks a little like a dominatrix in civies.


And Scalzi looks like a boy who's been bad and needs discipline. Will sbe let him wet himself again or force him to hold It? Readers of Sci-fi want to know!

I always wondered how during the Black Death that they got to the point of self-flaggelation, with the plaque of feminism and resultant social damage I begin to understand.

My respect for Freud continues to grow.

Dexter said...

Scalzi's blog has photos of his daughter. Kindest thing you can say is... ouch.

Kona Commuter said...

Anyone note the lady in the background laughing? The lady in the front left has a look of disgust.

Women test men by challenging their overtures and provocations, whether they are genuinely offended or not. The Delta response is a sincere apology. The Gamma response is a "please don't hurt me" pantomime.

The omega response is "Burn in hell you fucking cunt."

Casher O'Neill said...

Though the sigma response is to ignore the women for a moment and to point out to VD that sometimes "that only proves" means that he hasn't given up on his opponent yet. Sigmas - and a few betas and omegas - seem to be the only ones capable of proof anymore.
They are rare but hazardous for people who mistake them.
