Beta Of The Month

This guy:

The only thing gayer than inking John Elway’s face inches from his nads would be tattooing a giant, erect prick up his leg. Preferably black.

The display of male superstars’ names in the form of tattoos or jerseys is something that has always perplexed me. As a man, it makes no sense to advertise a much higher status man on your body like a billboard. It screams beta, if not omega. And yet, go to any sports event and you’ll see lots of jock-y meatheads, tough guys and douchebags doing just that. Don’t they realize how lame it looks to women, to boost the competition? The only explanation is that the dudes who do this have no clue how women think.

I suppose there is some evolutionary-based reason for it. Perhaps in the EEA, associating yourself with an alpha male would increase the chance that he would drop some of his sloppy seconds in your lap. But that is not the case today. Sucking the titular cocks of sports stars or rock stars is nothing short of slavish worship, and worshipping another man is the hallmark of the beta mentality.

Wearing the jersey — let alone tattooing his mug on your leg — of some millionaire athlete with a harem of hotties you could only dream of banging is analogous to the cuckold fetishist who sits in a corner feebly stroking it with a pair of tweezers while some grossly overhung studhorse jackhammers his wife into multiple Os. Think about that the next time you’re tempted to feel pride wearing Jeter’s shirt over your manboobs. You may as well be tucking your junk and licking his balls to a polished shine.

    • Hero worship (especially of an athlete with few actual accomplishments outside sports) shows the decline of our times.

      Used to be, heros were famous warriors, or intellectual leaders.

      Now its some dood who throws a football like, wicked faahr, dood and he pounds Vaj!

      My advice: if you’re going to idolize someone – its good if they get laid, but anyone with the status of even a B or C level celebrity gets laid like crazy – Pick someone worth modeling, someone who contributes value to society beyond the fairly commonplace, boring and ultimately meaningless activities of football and sex.

      • not all the way true, gladiators were not exactly the average guy in rome, and many gladiators were ex-military either in rome or from colonies, and the same is true for olympains, both events had military/warrior impplication. Olympians and also gladiators werely definitely smarter and more intelligent than the average guy in their times due to their background and exposure to higher hobbies and many different facets of life in their times. In fact, being an intellectual was supposed to be a man’s function, only done by men of higher status who got their status by actually doing the dirty job by standing on a battle line. In todays world men are a lot more specialised then they were even a 100 years ago, since we have lots of time and many recreational things like xboxes to play with rather than doing only a few things our entire life and playing games with swords, spears and arrows.

    I seriously doubt that a guy is giving up too many points for this kind of behavior.

    1. The “star” isn’t really competition unless he is in your social circle. It’s all a big fantasy and everyone knows it.

    2. The tatt goes a couple of steps further, but even then most people are going to assume it’s your dead uncle.

    Just to be clear I don’t care much for team sports and I wouldn’t be caught dead doing something like this myself. I agree with the premise but I’m not convinced that it’s much of a handicap, if any. My guess is that most guys who do this stuff probably get as much or more pussy than the average guy.

      • Men worship the king?

        The default pattern is to follow the pecking order, men are aware of it and accept it. Worship has been often desired by kings or emperors, but that does not mean they got it automatically. And since christian era, worship of kings would be not regarded with understanding from churchian fathers. Admiration/deference/high regard/respect, all fine.

        There has been a revival of the worship idea in the first half of the 20th century.The “dear leaders” came into fashion. There was a big thermometer in one of the Prague high schools with a sign “Thermometer of our love for J.V. Stalin”. In winter, it had to be helped up by a heater.

        But there was no preponderance of men enthralled by dear leaders. It was more the women that worshiped the uberalpha. If you consider the figures from SU gulags, the men comprised the great majority of prisoners. Women were maybe one tenth. Which tells you that it’s the men that are unwilling to impart unconditional deference if they feel it’s not justified. Thus it is men that are instrumental in a change of the order.

        Being from behind the Iron Curtain myself, I can provide anecdotal evidence myself. The women were the most devoted “subjects”, as I remember it.

I don’t like anything artificial (though very rarely artificial nails or lashes do look good) and I really believe it’s best to learn to respect your DNA the way it is. Carmen and Pam are very unfeminine in my opinion – trying too hard to look sexy is desperate and not feminine at all.

        I think my point as that women have different ideals of beauty and whatever that is, we will try to emulate that. Its fine if you don’t like the kind of beauty I like, I wasn’t looking for agreement there. Just that women will tend to emulate those women who they find most beautiful to them.

        BTW, when I speak of the beauty of Pam and Carmen, regardless of their actoins, they were still very physically beautiful in my eyes. That’s the point….

        I do find most of the women who dress modestly and act like good girls are talking down about women who look and dress like pam and Carmen. Ironically, these “modest” looking/acting girls are some of the biggest undercover skanks. I Knew plenty of them but they got away with it b/c they looked the good girl part.
        I do agree with the ridiculousness of the boobs though. Pam’s were ridiculous. But that is not what made them beautiful to me so I didn’t really pay attention.

        “Ironically, these “modest” looking/acting girls are some of the biggest undercover skanks. I Knew plenty of them but they got away with it b/c they looked the good girl part.”

        Exactly. A girl very dear to me is exactly like that. She’s super sweet and feminine but she’s still a slut. It’s hard to understand. She could have a good guy (guys are putting her on a pedestal because of her angelic and innocent beauty), but no, she rather sleeps around to prove how emancipated and cool girl she is. :S She’s so confused and unhappy in her heart.

        I also had a chance to observe one other very sweet, beautiful, modest girl showing her painfully slutty behaviour. I imagined that guys watching this were either traumatized (like ‘if THIS girl is such a slut, others must be even worse’) or they really started to despise her …

      • This is very true. I just don’t see or think the average man scours the internet looking at pics of male celebs to try to copy their look.
        However, Every woman has a particular style/look that she identifies as admirable beauty and wants to seek for herself if its somewhat attainable.

        I cannot tell a lie – I have to reluctantly admit (especially at my age) I typically find women who look more girl next door/skanky beautiful (think Playboy models) as most attractive. LOL So when I go scouring the net I tend to look at celebs in the Carmen Electra (she’s my fav absolutely stunning in her hey day) & Pamela Anderson (early years of course) range for ideas on make-up, hair and clothes. It’s not that I would ever look like them, but I like that “look” for myself.

        This is how women determine how they dress and look daily – by looking at and emulating women who fit their personal beauty ideals.

      • Nupi,
        No i don’t like the way Natalie Portman and Scarlett Johansson look. They have a boring plain Jane kind of beauty to me. Nothing stands out to me. i am not saying they are not attractive, but i don’t think ‘i wanna look like her’ when i see them.

        Honestly, there are very few female celebs today that I look at and think are stunningly beautiful that i want to emulate. It seems many women in showbiz today have a hardened masculine unfeminine look. The only ones I can think of who I think are absolutely adorable (b/c she looks like a young Pam Anderson ) is Hayden Pantierrie and a Black girl named Katerina Graham (oddly she and Hayden look alike to me) . They are sooooo pretty but not in a boring way.

        I find myself having to look at Playboy models and past beauties like Carmen and Pam for ideas b/c I feel they had a very feminine sexy girl next door non boring look to them.

        It seems the 90’s produced the most beautiful celeb women that I admire. Even the supermodels like Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell and Claudia Schaffer in the early 90’s were beauties b/c of the way they wore make up and clothes. It was just very feminine.

        I’m not a man so i guess it doesn’t matter. But Jennifer Aniston is too masculine looking. She represnts the average masculinesque female celebs today that just make me scratch my head. She is no girl next door to me. She comes off as bitchy, entitled and unfeminine (although she has kept her body in very good condition for her age).

But When I see a beautiful woman who fits the style/beauty I like for myself I am not looking at her lustfully. i am looking at her b/c i admire her beauty and want to steal some of what she does physically to make herself attractive for myself. Sometimes its a shoe style, her clothes, her hair color or her make up.

        I have no problem admitting I do look at photos of my fav female celebs and/or women I find most attractive to steal bits and pieces of what they do make up wise, hair wise, and clothes wise. Moreso now b/c as a women is trying to gain her attractiveness back, she needs a canvas and examples to achieve her look that she likes.

  14. Hey, maybe you could offer some analysis on chicks who dig sports. I find chicks who are real fans to be annoying as shit. But I dig a chick who will play along and feign interest in a game, maybe learn a few of the players names. I think if a chick digs you some of your interest in a sport should rub off on her, but not to the extent where she’s watching a game when you’re not around.

    Girls who get passionate about their college football team I steer clear of. How would you define those girls? Usually politically conservative in a mainstream way, often hot, but typically don’t stray far from their alumni circle. Or is it just because I live in the Southwest I see so many of these types?

    [Heartiste: Chicks who are real sports fans have a part of their brain masculinized from some likely exogenous factor, such as womb testosterone. Chicks who “play along” are fun to hang out with, because their try-hard fangirl pose is cute. You know she aims to please, and that may carry over into the bedroom. A girl who is really into you will mold herself to pretend to enjoy whatever hobby you practice, so the cute pose is not limited to sportsdom. I’ve had girls fake an interest in all sorts of musky, man-centric hobbies because they wanted to impress me. And they want to build a connection, however forced.
    College football girl fans are all over the place, so I wouldn’t say you could categorize them very well. Most of them just go to the games to strut and drink, and maybe a few think they’re hot enough to score a one night stand with a player. As for conservatism, while a rightie chick would be a pleasant surprise, the conservative babes who religiously follow college sports are a turn-off. Who wants to risk marrying some goody-two-shoes god-fearing suburban blonde ditz who will grow up one day to invite a big black homeless guy into your house and groom him for the state championship?]
