You don’t have to be particularly perceptive or brilliant to realise that young men today are very, very confused. Far too many of them grow up weak, whiny losers with a snarky sense of humour. When they smile, they do so with this weird mouth-open rictus that some of us refer to as “Soylent Grin” or the “Numale Grimace”. They are weak, driven by delusions of grandeur about themselves, and hyper-sensitive to criticism. If this sounds like you (and you’re new here), then read on, because you are probably in a pretty rough place. You really need to learn how to kill your inner Gamma male.
Defining the Gamma Male
Since our beloved and dreaded Supreme Dark Lord (PBUH) Vox Day first coined the term when he came up with his Socio-Sexual Hierarchy, we shall use his definition. The Gamma male is:
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 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.(Emphasis added)
I realise that many of you are visual learners rather than textual ones. As a result, you will probably figure out the idea more easily if we illustrate it with some examples. Once more we turn to OBADSDL(PBUH)’s video on the subject:
Now that you know what a Gamma male is, let’s figure out whether you are one.
I’m going to show you three pictures, and then I’ll provide you with a range of responses. You pick the response that most closely approximates your visceral reaction.
Ready? Set? Right – ‘ere we go!
- All HAIL the God-Emperor of Mankind!!!!!;
- Kind of a buffoon, bit of an orange face, has a vocabulary of barely 1,000 words, most of them superlatives, can’t string together a coherent sentence – but he’s a pretty effective leader;
- Which Bible edition is he holding? It had better not be anything other than the KJV!;
- I HATE all Alpha jocks, and that’s one right there!;
OK. Second image coming up:
And your response:
- Celebrate diversity!;
- Could there possibly be such a thing as “too many guns”?;
- You mean I can only pick ONE?!?!;
- OMG AREN’T ASSAULT RIFLES ILLEGAL?!?;
Last one. Brace yourself, this might be a bit of a shock:
- Freedom tits!!!!/’MURICA!!!!;
- Nice bikini – I’m sure it would look great on my bedroom floor…;
- Y’know, I really prefer redheads/Russians/crazy chicks…;
- Hey! Don’t you know it’s WRONG to objectify women?!?;
If you answered (4) to ANY of the questions above… you’re a Gamma.
As my friend Adam Piggott likes to say, always get a second opinion. So here’s what you do:
Go up to a reasonably big dog with real teeth, and try to make friends with it. Weakness is a fundamental trait of the Gamma. Dogs sense weakness and fear very easily. If it reacts angrily, you’re probably a Gamma. This test is not foolproof, but it’s a pretty good indicator.
The next one, however, NEVER fails. Ask an attractive female acquaintance for her unbiased opinion. Pose this simple question: “Do you or any of your friends ever feel creeped out by me, or want to punch me because of my behaviour around you?“. If she answers in the affirmative, you’re a Gamma. And if she is emphatically affirmative, you are a HUGE Gamma.
Learning How to Kill Your Inner Gamma Male
In case you are new here, or you haven’t twigged on yet, being a Gamma is NOT a good thing, at all. You do not have the necessary attributes for long-term happiness, confidence, peace of mind, and success.
Now, Gammas do have their place in society. But they require intensive care, feeding, and maintenance. In most cases, the costs of Gammas outweigh the benfefits.
So, if you are a Gamma, and you want to change, how do you start? Glad you asked. Let us begin. Note that, in what follows, I will be borrowing LIBERALLY from the Alpha Game Plan series “Graduating Gamma“. I do not pretend to be an original thinker, at all. When you are done reading this, go read the full series at the old AGP blog.
Step 0: STOP F***ING LYING
The fundamental trait of the Gamma male is his propensity for lying. He lies to himself first and foremost about his own worth and place in the hierarchy. Because of this propensity, he is unable to reconcile what the world is telling him about himself, with his own self-image. This causes a great deal of inner pain and resentment for him.
So your first priority is to STOP LYING. You are probably weak, out of shape, scorned and despised by those around you. Admit this to yourself. Say it in front of a mirror. Be ruthlessly honest in all things.
When you fail, ADMIT TO YOUR FAILURES – to yourself and to the world. If you want a good example of this, check out my podcast in which I did precisely that.
Step 1: DYEL, Bruh?
Being a Gamma male is directly correlated to lacking in testosterone. Two things will raise your testosterone levels almost immediately.
The first is a properly manly diet rich in high-protein foods. Ditch the soy and start eating eggs, nuts, berries, red meat, and green vegetables. (Please note that I consider chicken and bacon to be vegetables.)
The second is a proper regimen of physical exercise. Stop dicking around with endless cardio. Don’t waste your time with weight machines. Get into a real gym and lift real weights. This will rapidly boost your strength, make you more masculine, burn fat, and automatically increase your value with women.
You may well ask, “Didact, which exercise programme should I choose?” I DON’T CARE. THEY ALL WORK (except CrossShit). JUST. PICK. ONE.
You only need TWO Ingredients to become strong – progressive overload (more sets/reps/both every workout) and consistency (i.e. show up and work). That is all. If you want more tips, check out my Beginner’s Guide to Lifting series.
Step 2: Embrace the Conflict
Once you have shed some excess weight and/or gained some muscle, you need to address the major obstacle to your development. As a Gamma, you have a fear of competition and public embarrassment. The fastest and most effective way that I know of to cure this problem is martial arts.
If you study a real combat art, you will find yourself humiliated repeatedly by people with far greater skill than you. This is good. Your ego needs to be humbled before it can grow. You need to understand that nobody cares about your delusions. People only care about whether or not you can deliver the goods. When you learn how to fight, you will no longer be afraid of the word because you know what you can and cannot handle.
Step 3: Stop Sperging
Your World of Warcraft Level 77 Dark Elf character may be of interest to you. Nobody else gives a shit.
You may love specific arcane bits of trivia about where and how things became what they did. Others don’t care.
You may believe that your esoteric jokes and archaic witticisms make you funny. Everyone else thinks you’re an ass.
Get the picture? Don’t tell long rambling stories. Avoid wasting people’s time with pointless anecdotes and endless ruminations about your diet. PRO-TIP: when on a date, keep your frakkin’ stupid mouth SHUT, and let HER do the talking.
Step 4: Get Some Real Hobbies
This is not a real hobby:
This is a real hobby:
Write. Fish. Hunt. Play tennis. Learn to dance salsa or tango or bachata. Build things and learn to work with your hands. The possibilities are endless.
Step 5: Take Responsibility
I’ve got a post coming up about what this looks like. For now, here’s what you need to understand:
If you screw up, IT IS ON YOU. Not on your co-worker or wife or kid or neighbour. It’s on YOU. Own it. Accept that you screwed up. Figure out how you made a mess. Admit to it. And don’t do it ever again.
Step 6: Join a Brotherhood
Gamma males usually turn out that way because of weak or absent fathers. They lack a masculine template for life upon which to base themselves. The best way to deal with this problem is to be around other masculine men. Note, when I say “brotherhood”, I DON’T mean an online gathering of other Gammas. Your delusion bubble needs to be popped, not reinforced.
So join a properly led Bible study group or church. Become part of a hunting club. Go out for lunch with your sparring buddies.
Most of all: shut up and get to work. Obey the rules and commands of your superiors in the organisation – do not question them or argue with them. Just get on with doing the best job that you can.
Step 7: Embrace the Suck
Your life will get immeasurably harder before it will get better. This is inevitable. Gamma males are seriously broken individuals and fixing them requires tremendous amounts of work. But here is the secret to overcoming pain, fear, and doubt:
Just show up every day and do the damn work. That’s it. This is literally the secret to all success.
My martial arts teacher often tells the story about a sign in Renzo Gracie’s BJJ gym in New York. Apparently, as you walk into the mat of that school, you will see a sign that says: “A black belt is just a white belt who refused to quit”. That is true of life as well. Be disciplined, be consistent, and show up for the fight – and your life WILL get better.
Conclusion: Kill Your Inner Gamma Male, Live Free, Live Strong
I want you to remember one final point. Everything that I have written above needs to be done while keeping God in mind. If you try to build up your muscles for cosmetic reasons, this is stupid and indulgent. God doesn’t need preening prima donnas standing in front of mirrors taking half-naked selfies – you’re not a woman, you’re a MAN, so start acting like one.
Similarly, God doesn’t need men who show up to organisations in order to subvert them for an ideological agenda. We’ve got quite enough of that shit happening in our churches as it is. We need warriors, not wusses and tattle-tales.
If you are unsure of how to get started – pray. Institute a daily prayer rule. Sincerely call upon God the Father of Jesus Christ of Nazareth to help you. And He assuredly will.
Focus all of your heart and soul and mind upon God’s will, and He will guide you as He wishes. The steps that I have outlined for you above will lead you closer to Him – but ultimately you have to choose to ask Him for His help. He will give it, but you have to ask.
So kill your inner Gamma male, and live free, live strong, and live without regrets.
