Fuck Being a Fucking Pussy

In the last post, we saw how Nietzsche drew a sharp distinction between “Master morality” and “Slave morality.” To sum up, Master morality pits the obvious Good against the obvious Bad (i.e. the beautiful is superior to the hideous). On the other hand, Slave morality pits Good versus Evil, with “evil” as a new category that encompasses any virtues that might be seen as “oppressive,” such as selfishness, excellence, and arrogance.

What astonishes me, the older I get, is how our culture wants to vilify the Good Man, as embodied in the ancient heroes of old Greece. Feminism has crept so far into our collective bones as to make good, strong men wary of showing their worth. I can’t in good conscience put all the blame at the feet of feminism, as there are many different and interlocking threads that have woven the current cultural world. But feminism, especially to the degree that it has suckered in actual men, is one of the guiltiest parties in our rogue’s gallery of misfit ideologies.

It hurts women more than anyone. A man with a brash nature and a broad chest, a man who stands up straight and fights for his tribe and his country, still attracts women. But those very women are made to feel guilty for the pulsings of their own loins. These women are made to feel that they should prefer a pale-faced, hipster-bearded, chardonnay-drinking, NPR-listening pussy. And those women, poor fillies, accept those men and live out their unhappy lives. Or they cheat with cocky alphas while their beta husbands stay home and watch HBO series about real (fictional) men like Tony Soprano or Sheriff Bullock. These women, for all their failings, do deserve a bit of sympathy. What would you do in their place?

I don’t mean to absolve women of their agency in choosing men that will make them truly happy. And I do subscribe to the (well-proven) notion that women are the ultimate arbiters of male behavior… that is to say, if women choose one kind of mate, the males will conform to fit the mold. But it’s ridiculous to pretend that the men don’t also have a choice to make. Because you do.

A lot of the literature in the PUA community on the web is geared toward giving natural betas the tools to seem like alphas. As someone who fully supports the unadulterated, wholesale return to the patriarchy of old, I have no problem with that. Most men cannot be true alphas, and it is in the interest of all humans, male and female, to give respectable, law-abiding betas the means to assume power again. But my particular interest lies elsewhere.

If you truly feel at heart that you are a piss-ant, that you deserve only the dregs of pussy that life and a diligent study of “game theory” can teach you, this post isn’t for you. Go back to some bullet-point PUA website and put some more gel in your hair. But if you, like I did once upon a time, feel that you are a god among men, who is acting to less than your full potential because of the rules of modern society, please read on.

It’s probably true that only 1 out of 10 men is a true alpha. In a tribe of 60-70 humans in the ancestral environment, that meant that only 2 or 3 males were true alphas, including the young boys. But if you look around modern American society, probably only 1 out of 1000 males acts like a true alpha. That means there are literally tens of thousands of American males not living up to their real potential.

Roissy in DC, for example, is a great writer, and also a great professor of the truths about men and women. But if you read his site carefully, you will see that his definition of a good man starts and stops with getting quality pussy. Roissy clearly has the chops to pontificate as he does. But he leaves a gap in the real definition of manhood. Men achieve things. The convenient bailout move for modern American alphas (and for beta pretenders) is to assume that the world has gone to shit, that the country has gone to shit, and all to such a degree that a man can’t possibly be expected to do anything with his god-given prowess. “Oh the Mexicans are ruining everything,” “Oh, the feminists make it too hard,” and etc. etc. Fair enough… but…

But a true Viking doesn’t give a shit about the world as it is. Doesn’t let anything, anything, stop him from realizing his true manhood. Roissy is a prophet of the downfall, but I want to tell you all about the uprising. The uprising of real men. The uprising of strength and courage and fortitude.

Go lift some weights. Sign up for the military. Read the epic stories of great men. Achilles, Julius Caesar, Admiral Nelson, General Patton. There is no essential difference between the heroic men of ancient tales and the true alphas-in-waiting reading this blog. The only existential difference is that you happen to live in a world that wants you to behave like a pussy. That’s a handicap, for sure. It’s handicapped me. But it’s no excuse. Turn off the internet porn; turn off the NPR. Who gives a fuck what hippie-shit farmer pickled your potatoes? Who gives a fuck if you can name all the members of Wolf Parade? Fight Club this shit, my friends.

A quote to leave you with. For vocab reasons, let me tell those of you who don’t know, that a capon is a male bird that never fully develops its sex organs. In chicken society, once a male cock has asserted its dominance over a brood, other male chickens that are born fail to develop testicles as they enter puberty. It is a survival mechanism that keeps them from having to fight the real male of the brood, the dominant rooster. But what a poor existence… How much more glorious to be a bright-feathered cock!

Between two sailors on a man-of-war in the British Navy in the early 19th century, looking at a beautiful specimen of full-feathered male bird (and “Jack”‘s first reply is sarcastic, if you don’t catch it):

Stephen said, “Have you ever contemplated upon sex, my dear?”

“Never,” said Jack, “Sex has never entered my mind, at any time.”

“The burden of sex, I mean. This bird, for example, is very heavily burdened; almost weighed down. He can scarcely fly or pursue his common daily round with any pleasure to himself, encumbered by a yard of tail and all this top-hamper [a nautical term]. All these extravagant plumes have but one function — to induce the hen to yield to his importunities. How the poor cock must glow and burn, if these are, as they must be, an index of his ardour.”

“That is a solemn thought.”

“Were he a capon, now, his life would be easier by far. These spurs, these fighting spurs, would vanish; his conduct would become peaceable, social, complaisant and mild. Indeed, were I to castrate all the [sailors], Jack, they would grow fat, placid and unaggressive; this ship would no longer be a man-of-war, darting angrily, hastily from place to place; and we should circumnavigate the terraqueous globe with never a harsh word.”

Our country, our world has become a ship of capons: fat, placid and unaggressive.

There is peace in the life of a capon. No fighting, no glory. This is most certainly the proper route to choose for most men. If you think that’s what you want from life, you should choose it with all your heart. There is no shame in being a capon, growing fat, and finding a certain gray breed of happiness. But if you have ever thought yourself capable of more; if you have ever felt that horizon calling you to bigger and greater things: you must press on. Fighting spurs means blood and pain. But it’s worth it; and luckily, the choice is yours.

Tomorrow: the two kinds of assholes.

    dude…great post.

    the one thing i question, and have always questioned in this whole alpha/beta thing is, the natural order of the male hierarchy. it doesn’t really matter *who* is at the top of the heap, getting all the pussy/glory/spoils, it just matters that the distribution of men is relatively static (i.e. 10% of men will *always* be alpha).

    it’s hard for me to form a solid grasp on these concepts because on the one hand, if a man can fight his way to a respectable place, he will be happy, but if he fails to succeed, if he fails to benefit from the “teachings” that the eunich capon has “learned” evolutionarily, he will be either unhappy or dead.

    while its hard to advocate adopting complacency on an individual basis, it is one of those situations where it *has* to be that way. somebody has to be at the bottom of the heap. one is stuck between the futility of fighting the natural progression of things and reaping the rewards of coming out on top.

    The interesting bit about the natural alpha stuff is most of human expansion happened when there were no alpha leaders. The hunter gather groups that conquered the world were very egalitarian within the group. They had no chieftains. It only once we settled down that alpha leaders started taking power/wealth/women.

    Remember, George W Bush is an alpha and a terrible leader at the same time.

    True indeed Anonymous, however there is always a pecking order between men, even if it is not officiated. Consider even informal social situations, people are always jostling for their position. Maybe one may take the lead, then another, but it is usually the most bold and extroverted that do so.

    Anon and Monad: I agree. Humans are both animals AND creatures of culture. Any time someone claims that biology is everything, I think they need to do a bit more study of history and see the infinite varieties of how societies have been organized. And any time someone wants to say that “it’s all culture,” I have to laugh and shake my head sadly; that person is in deep denial about how species evolve, and about his own animal nature. It’s both, of course, but admitting this doesn’t fit so nicely on a cute little sassy bumper-sticker. People prefer simplistic schemes; that way they don’t have to think as hard.

  9. i’ve noted in my goings out that certain ethnicities of women are less interested in beta males: read that Brazilian women for one. Most of the Brazilian girls I’ve met, and dated, like the one last night, don’t even try to lie about how much they want a true fucking man.
    America, has gone the way of liberalism and this emasculating of the very traits that created it: independence, bold/rash decision-making even when wrong et cetera.

    Lifting weights and taking some martial art are good for one in so many ways. They’d be a first “step” I’d proscribe for anyone mired “in the muck” of life, wanting to go forward.

    I think its a mistake to be apolitical, and to just assume that “things will work themselves out”. As men, we should take an active interest in the nations we live in and try to make things work out there, so that our country does not fall into decay. z

    Agreed. There is a self-perpetuating cycle that happens when you lift… you generate more testosterone, you feel more capable, you get more active, you feel better, you pull better pussy, and you can’t wait to get back to your pile of iron and start it all again.

  17. Bravo Dogen,

    Interesting term, “capon,” I can’t say I’ve encountered it previously but the concept is glaringly obvious all around us. By his wife’s menopause the average man has less testosterone and more estrogen than she. Testosterone levels are influenced by social dominance in men as well as in cocks. Access to sex and acting out aggression both increase it in us. Exogenous estrogens and PC pacification both reduce it. It’s a simple matter to see that society encourages men to be passive beta capon’s and keep spinning their wheels producing without demanding their own due. Be not a capon gents, ’tis a shitty life.

    Rubbish. Virtually all hunter/gather bands have strong male leaders. Because hunter gatherer bands have relatively little property since they move about without draft animals, there's little material inequality.
