I only read a few manosphere blogs and I almost never venture into the comments sections of those blogs, as the comments are unreadable. Lately I’ve skimmed some comments and something has clicked.
The manosphere can basically be split into two factions. The first faction is what I called guys who got laid “by accident.” The second faction is made up of posers, dead beats, parasites, leeches, and groupies.
I was in the first faction, and here’s what I mean: Before learning game, I got laid. I had more than the national average number of sexual partners before ever hearing about a PUA. I wasn’t a basement dweller. I stayed in shape, was relatively interesting, and not a weirdo. I would get laid, but getting laid always seemed accidental. There wasn’t any process to it.
It never made sense to me that some guys who were objectively beneath me got laid more than I did. It never made sense to me that the biggest dirt bag I knew guy laid more than quality guys.
Once I learned game, it all made sense.
You can spot a guy who “accidentally” got laid because those guys actually drop game knowledge. We will shit talk American women because bullshitting around a campfire has been around since man discovered how to use fire. But for the most part we exchange useful information and swap bang stories.
The second faction of guys are paper alphas. Outside of the manosphere we call these guys keyboard warriors:
1. A Person who, being unable to express his anger through physical violence (owning to their physical weakness, lack of bravery and/or conviction in real life), instead manifests said emotions through the text-based medium of the internet, usually in the form of aggressive writing that the Keyboard Warrior would not (for reasons previously mentioned) be able to give form to in real life.
I use paper alpha because it sounds like a favorite expression of mine:
Paper tiger is a literal English translation of the Chinese phrase zhǐlǎohǔ (simplified Chinese: 纸老虎; traditional Chinese: 紙老虎), meaning something that seems as threatening as a tiger, but does not withstand challenge.
In appearance it is very powerful but in reality it is nothing to be afraid of; it is a paper tiger. Outwardly a tiger, it is made of paper, unable to withstand the wind and the rain. I believe that is nothing but a paper tiger.
If you read a paper alpha’s blog posts, you’d think, “Wow. This guy is bad ass.” Then you realize there is nothing behind his words. He wilts when presented with a challenge.
Mark Minter is the most recent paper alpha. He had a lot to say behind the cover of a keyboard. But like a keyboard warrior who would never have the courage to confront a man in real life, Minter cowered when some snatch was put in his face.
You can spot a paper alpha by his obsession with jargon, use of cute LOL cat style gifs, and vitriol. Paper alphas are the guys who go online and shit talk girls without ever actually sharing any game knowledge. You could post a picture of a 22 year old model you banged and some guy is going to find a flaw on her.
Here is one paper alpha:
Jesus rename yourself to fly retard & dumb fuck already, & quit commenting on shit you dont know jack shit about …If you cant give a shit about mens rights or what men have to say, do us all a favour & go fuck yourself
Sounds tough, right? Actually he sounds like a complete and total jack ass. But if you took him at his word, he would be an interesting character.
The author of that comment has a blog entitled:
REJECTING MODERN WOMEN
Pickup & Advanced NLP & Charisma Behaviourial Conversational Strategic Technologies.
That guy has never been laid and will never get laid. How can you tell?
Look, if a blog is loaded with jargon and just sounds kooky, the person lacks the basic human skills of communication.
None of us are H.L. Mencken, but you don’t need to write like Delicious Tacos to string together a few thoughts. R Max Gen Active PUA can’t even string together a coherent tagline. Yet we’re supposed to rely on him for game advice?
If a man cannot communicate without using words like “charisma behavioral conversational strategic technologies,” what are the odds that he can actually talk to women?
The manosphere has been overrun with paper alphas and it’s time for a house cleaning.
Ban these dregs from your blogs. This may hurt page views, but are you really making so much money from selling ads that you need the hits?
I view D&P as my living room. I don’t allow idiots into my house, so why would I let them congregate at my blog?
Delete the retarded comments. Ban the posers. These people do not deserve a voice and their stench is contagious.
